The search for optimal spiritual health is often termed the way of the peaceful warrior. Specifically, the peaceful warrior has a clear sense of purpose in life, feels guided and supported by a higher power, has a positive, loving spirit that embraces the oneness of life, feels an inner peace and is on the path of self-actualization.
By developing a heightened awareness of the purpose of life’s challenges and experiences, you create an instruction manual for life. Once the manual is devised, you can then gain a sense of mastery over any your life’s challenges. Furthermore, sages believe that shifting your consciousness to a higher level enables you to participate in the transformation of the human condition all over the world…
