The Respect of a Spiritual Warrior
A spiritual warrior never turns herself into a victim. If she victimizes herself, then she realizes she has no self-worth, and is living her life from the point of view of self-pity and self-importance. This way of living is the antitheses of self-respect. Rather than enjoying the rush a victim gets from the emotions of righteous indignation, a spiritual warrior gets her rush from the emotions of inner peace and happiness.
Spiritual warriors are always grateful for their path in life, but they dont criticize others for not following the same path as them, nor do they seek to make others paths wrong. They have a deeper understanding of the perfection of life and have respect for the way life unfolds. With that understanding, a spiritual warrior never takes what happens in life to heart.
Ask yourself the following questions:
Do you get angry when things do not go your way in life?
Do you allow others to walk over you, and then do you end up projecting your anger at them because of your inability to set a boundary?
Do you get yourself in dramatic situations that just seem to happen to you?
Do you impose your opinion on others and have the need to make them wrong?
