what is a warrior?

While i have almost simply assumed that all whom arrive here, are already aware of what it means to be a warrior, but this morning i was inspired to share a perspective on it- beyond our initial creed

Traditionally, the word Warrior – equates with the idea of ‘fighting’, ‘battle’ or conflict. Dictionary.com describes it as the following:

war·ri·or

[wawr-ee-er, wawr-yer, wor-ee-er, wor-yer] Show IPA

noun

1.

a person engaged or experienced in warfare; soldier.
2.

a person who shows or has shown great vigor, courage, or aggressiveness, as in politics or athletics.
If i were dictionary.com i would be removing ‘politics’ from equating with this term, however this gives a pretty decent jist as to just how this word is perceived in modern society.
Our perspective is much more idealistic, to us- the word warrior is less about fighting and more about love, and advocating endlessly that which we love. Empowering our purpose by devoting ourselves fiercely to brazenly fighting for its success, nourishment and thriving of our ultimate and collective journeys. Being a warrior is about bravely adhering to our path, unwaveringly serving the highest level good and light and uncompromisingly allowing ourselves to be – incredibly strong, willful and wise, humble, vulnerable and wise enough to nourish each facet of our nature as we move towards this higher consciousness, this better world, this greater reality- wielding our weaponless weapons of war- war against ego, war against ignorance, war against war itself and the mentality of the weak whom support a failing system, who buy into a mindless culture, who are duped by a heartless idea that we are all separate.
Part of the vision for the Nourished Warrior is based upon the idea that while as Warriors we must inevitably fight, we also must be wise enough to be weak. Be courageous enough to be small, be evolved enough to know the difference between thriving and flailing.
As we continue to develop to Nourished Warrior, we will be drawing some archetypes for you to identify with, some unique ways to align with the concept of being a warrior.
The nourishment we will seek to provide will differ for each Warrior- and during our evolution we will strive to bring all the best in healing, empowerment tools for each and every type of conscious warrior in the world, today.

“We may think of peace as the absence of war, that if the great powers would reduce their weapons arsenals, we could have peace. But if we look deeply into the weapons, we will see our own minds – our own prejudices, fears, and ignorance.”
– Thich Nhat Hanh
