028: Living As a Warrior
3 days ago
What comes to your mind when you hear the word ‘warrior’? What characteristics do you imagine a warrior embodies? Do you envision a buddhist monk, a samurai or something completely different? Do you view the term 'warrior' as an ego filled, muscled 'fixer' or a gentle savior? In this week’s episode, Host, Mike Domitrz welcomes CAST members Rick Clemons, Barry Moniak, and Darren Tipton to gain clarity on the multiple dimensions of being a warrior in today’s world. The quote that inspired this conversation is “To be a warrior is to learn to be genuine in every moment of your life. Realize that you do not possess basic goodness but that you are the basic goodness itself. Train yourself to be a warrior is learning to rest in basic goodness to rest in a complete state of simplicity. In the Buddhist tradition, that state of being is called egolessness.” — from the book by Chögyam Trungpa, Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior. Subscribe to the Everyday Mindfulness Show.
