Two groups of Spiritual Warriors found themselves in a very real and important dilemma. They understood their personal spiritual missions and recognized that energy existed that could prevent them from completing their work. They asked the Creator for the tools they needed, and each warrior received the package as requested.
Each package contained three items: a sword, a shield, and body armor. The sword represented Truth and could never be broken. The shield represented Knowledge of the weaknesses of the intruding energy, and Knowledge from the ancients. The body armor represented spiritual awareness and the Wisdom to wield the Truth (sword) and hold up the Knowledge (shield) in the face of a challenge.
Soon the intruding energy became evident and both groups of Spiritual Warriors felt they were ready. One group, in excitement and urgency, finally opened their packages and stared with disbelief. Everything was in parts! There was a manual that said, “SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED” They couldn’t prepare in time, and were quickly overrun and defeated by the intruders. They blamed the Creator, each other, and “the world.” They never learned to use their tools.
The other group had opened their packages long ago. They had put their tools together and had practiced with them. They practiced when it didn’t count and it was a good thing they did, for they found the sword to be almost too fast and sharp to handle properly. The shield had so many options, they had difficulty knowing exactly how to hold it, and the body armor was very heavy! With practice, intention and focused attention, they eventually learned how to integrate and use all their tools, and they were ready.
They soon realized that no single tool worked without all three being engaged. The body armor was the key, for it gave them the Wisdom to manage the sword (Truth) and the shield (Knowledge). When the intruders arrived, it took the intruders one look at this strong, well-prepared force and they quickly fled. No tears were shed on either side and the battle never occurred. The group of well-practiced Spiritual Warriors celebrated their easy victory!
