Even while one is deeply working through personal issues one must maintain greater awareness of the world and what is happening outside the self, for all is a reflection, and the issues of the self are simultaneously being played out on the world stage. A warrior knows this. A warrior does not ignore or turn from the world, but uses it to great advantage. A warrior finds the self in everything and everyone, and thus realizes that no one is special nor exceptional nor in deeper conflict than another but all are equal. Thus a warrior learns compassion through deep work and conscious realization that all beings are one energy and on the same journey, seeking wholeness in the confines of this world and their human form, equally inhibited and equally granted all they need.
