So much talk in the US about soldiers these days…bashing them, calling them “names” – misunderstanding what and why someone volunteers to serve as a warrior. To willingly put themselves in harms way for the sake of freedom for others.
Here is a short reminder of what the mightiest warrior is…it includes all that serve.
The Mightiest of Warriors
But the mightiest warriors enemies are not common foes of flesh and bone.
Then what is the enemy?
The fight is with the inner delusions, the afflictions of self-cherishing and ego-grasping…those most terrible of demons that catch living beings in the snare of confusion and cause them forever to wander in pain and sorrow.
What is the mission of the mightiest warrior?
The mission is to harm ignorance and delusion…never living beings. Look upon living beings with kindness, patience and empathy…cherishing them like a mother cherishes her only child.
This is the karma of sacrifice.
The mightiest warrior is the real hero….calmly facing any hardship in order to bring peace, happiness and liberation to the world.
