Way of the Peaceful Warrior

In my youth, I focused on self-improvement. Then one day I realized that no matter how much I improved myself, only one person benefited. If I could influence other people in a positive way, that made my life more meaningful and exciting. Dan Millman

Dan Millman says, “It’s time to explore the laws of proper relationships. These involve reciprocity and mutual respect to be healthy. The laws apply to everyone, whether we’re conscious of them or not. You’ll learn how to create harmony and balance in your life. Cultivate gentleness and gratitude. Also, a willingness to sacrifice oneself for the greater good.

This is the essence of what it means to be a warrior. Another component requires learning how to establish your “armor.” This is an energetic field of light that maintains healthy boundaries.

In the Peaceful Warrior, the old man arouses Millman’s curiosity. He learns the path of the peaceful warrior. This is a life philosophy on how to live with focus and intention. as well as how to transform passive feelings like sadness or fear into positive action.

      Thank you, Michael. It’s been many years since I read “The Way of the Peaceful Warrior.” Your article triggered a few thoughts within me.

      One, overriding thought is that until I want to see these negative disempowering thoughts and words, I won’t recognize them. The journey of change begins for me when I set the intention to be honest with myself and want to see these patterns. I then begin to recognize the subtleties of the negative thoughts as they occur. Of course, making a few changes in my environmental atmosphere helps makes change. For example, I strive to stop bringing negativity into my thoughts through the programs I watch on television. I want my personal atmosphere to clear out negativity rather that to continue feeding it. And, this is one small step that has the potential to help me with negativity. I also, recognize that I spend a lot of time focusing on clearing out my vessel and it has been coming into my awareness that it is time to celebrate my successes by doing some fun things that inspire and uplift me. This too will help change negative thoughts. After all, my experience has been that a happy outlook does create a happier more positive person.

      Thank you, Michael for this article. It is well written and has provided food for thought for me.

      Michael, there was much of wisdom in your article. The most profound for me was the caution: “Inner Warrior/Warrioress fights situations in the world. This strengthens what they oppose. They have yet to learn, we empower that which we focus energy on.” The thought expanded and clarified the idea that we are as connected to another by our anger as by our love. Thank you, Weare

      I really liked this, Michael.

      One thing I think it’s good to add is that the Warrior/Warrioress archetype (as far as the main archetypes go) is the only one that actually has the capacity to ACT in the world. So, it is definitely related to accessing our power.

      Also, a good warrior never goes into battle alone; he/she assesses the situation and makes strategic decisions (which you alluded to). So, in actuality, contrary to the cultural (fake) image of warrior that we are given in the West… which would show us a Rambo figure or Clint Eastwood character who is always going it alone… the positive warrior has the capacity and willingness to ask for help. It’s actually a power move to reach out for help.

      I say this because there is a deep imprint in our culture that we should be able to handle everything by ourselves, and many people feel shame when they reach out for help. So, overcoming that shame (which is nothing more than an attack by our inner critic) takes great courage and is a Warrior move. When people can view it from that angle it helps them overcome the resistance (which is often unprocessed shame).
      Much love, Mary
