The word Samurai means 'to serve'. I feel that modern day warriors just like these great warriors of old as they begin to cut away at the ego, cutting away at everything that holds them back from this moment, all begin ask- how can i serve?

I feel the best way to serve others, is to first become the best you that you can be, how do you expect to inspire an other and lead them to the peace and happiness within if you are miserable yourself? How do you expect to love another fully if you cant first love yourself- your true self?

Service to others is not about being a Martyr, if you go around with the attitude that you do so much for everyone, you are so self sacrificing but you get nothing in return, this isn't being selfless, this isn't service, this is just simply more ego coming in a clever guise, you are playing the role of the selfless ,self sacrificing you, and therefor aren't giving the world your true best, your true you.

Service to others is about giving the world your best!

So how do you go about that? You may be conscious enough to feel a desire burning within you, and you may be able to envision how walking the path of that desire can inspire and light a path for so many others, you may be able to look beyond yourself enough to realize that by you becoming the best you can at whatever it is you do, by becoming your own master you can better serve as a guiding light to others, by letting the universe express through you, you can become a vehicle to awaken others-

"Out of every 100 men, ten shouldn't even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back." - Heraclitus

But what if you aren't conscious enough to look from that broader perspective? Even if you are i feel it can be summed up in three words- FOLLOW YOU BLISS. The universe is trying to express through us, theres a bigger picture unfolding that we cannot even begin to imagine- and it speaks to us through our intuition.

Dan Millman in his book No Ordinary Moments, explains that he began gymnastics to make him more attractive to the opposite sex, he did not have a clue the road and path that choice would set him on and how it would go on to let him inspire millions of people all over the world.

When i began training it was more an intuitive feeling, natural, something that 'just felt right' I had no idea it would lead me to now, lead me to writing for Brutal and for sharing my own evolution with the readers of this blog, and i have no idea where this path with continue to lead me, but i do know this- I am very grateful to be observing all of this unfolding.

The realization of true love or oneness with all people and things lends itself naturally to service, it may be something as simple as a smile to a passing stranger- it can change the world!

Our relationships are the ultimate spiritual training ground when it comes to both being true to yourself and to be selfless, I'm not talking about buying someone gifts, or doing something to make someone smile, although that can indeed be an expression of it, I'm talking about truly being present with someone, not playing a role, but just being there in the moment fully- no mental commentary- just there, still- this is the blossoming ground for true love.

Can you throw away your notion of another person needing to 'give you' anything?

The Dali Lama is said to have a vision of a world where we work as one, in unity, not separated by race, colour ,creed, where men an women of all professions of all backgrounds, all work together for the betterment of the world, a world not of competition of individual or collective ego's competing, but instead a oneness, creating.

It is my hope that in my lifetime i help in the realization of that vision, in whatever way expresses through me.

Go beyond imagining enlightened individual, imagine an enlightened world

We don't need to change our lives- although changes will occur- we don't need to change the world, we simply need to awaken.

This is the path of the Samurai warrior

The adventure awaits......
