The Warrior’s Prayer

I am what I am.
In having faith in the beauty within me I develop trust.
In softness I have strength.
In silence I walk with the gods.
In peace I understand myself and the world.
In conflict I walk away.
In detachment I am free.
In respecting all living things I respect myself.
In dedication I honour the courage within me.
In eternity I have compassion for the nature of all things.
In love I unconditionally accept the evolution of others.
In freedom I have power.
In my individuality I express the God-Force within me.
In service I give of what I have become.
I am what I am:
Eternal, immortal, universal, and infinite.
And so be it.

Warrior Culture : Hegemony (Part ½)

Warrior Culture : Hegemony

After being invaded by the Fornacs(Buggers) an interstellar ant like civilization, the world united under a dictorial Hegemony to prepare the earth for another invasion and of course the fated Pre-emptive strike of its own. It was decided at some point that children are more intuitive than thier adult contemporaries and that they have fewer ba habits to unlearn. So much like the Spartans, or Janissarries of the old world young children were selected and trained to be tacticians and warriors. They are sent to a type of basic training, military academy, strateguim, officer school, all mixed into one and trained until they advance to command school. Students are graded on thier fitness, school work, and thier battle training performance, and are in heated compatition with each other for the top spots. Their battle training emphasizes teamwork and strategy, with advanced technology imobalizing damaged limbs to simulate casualties/injures, etc…

Hwarang... I’m going in. Wish me luck.

I see so many people on the internet saying that characters can’t live happy lives because of what they’ve lived through in the past, or excusing characters for being completely unlikable jerks by saying “Well hey, they’ve gone through a lot of stuff." 

So even if it’s getting canceled, I still salute New Warriors for being a fun upbeat book that showed that people with horrible past can still move ahead and create something special with their lives.

Two Sides, Same Coin

A few hours before sunrise. The temperature is preternaturally cold and the air chokes with greasy smoke.

“Give us the lich, Atticus,” the warrior shouted from across the chasm.

He pointed at the phylactery, the lich’s corporeal form having already been destroyed. “We will let you go, we are not after you this time.” The party’s two wizards began constructing a bridge out of the surrounding stone and their task would not take long.

Atticus, deeply wounded and breathing heavily, threw a fireball in response. He took out one of the bridge-builders, and while this cost him nearly all his remaining strength, it bought him a few precious minutes to plan.

“You would risk all this for a single lich?” the party’s cleric demanded.

“For a single skeleton,” Atticus spat and attacked again.

“So be it,” the warrior grunted, saluting the villain respectfully.

That yoga pose you’ve been practicing may not be as ancient as you thought. In fact, journalist Michelle Goldberg says that most of the poses that we do in modern yoga classes have no antecedent beyond 150 years ago.

“Probably the greatest myth is when you do these poses, when you do sun salutations or the warrior poses, that that there’s some sort of continuity to what yogis were doing 3,000 years ago on the banks of the Ganges, and that’s just not true,” Goldberg tells Fresh Air’s Terry Gross.

But is that necessarily a bad thing?  Probably not, says Goldberg:

There’s no mention of warrior poses or sun salutations in any ancient text at all. That might be a little disillusioning to some people, [but] what I hope and what it ultimately meant to me, is we don’t have to feel so anxious about the authenticity of our modern practices because like anything … it’s a modern adaptation and that might, I hope, let people feel a little less anxious about adapting it for their own needs.

Yeah, no, sun salutations still make me anxious … because I stink at them!  But it’s very cool to learn some of this history behind them – find the full interview here.
