I use to be in awe of my fellow spiritual warriors. I had the utmost respect for them. There are very few people who have the courage to challenge their fears, judgments, and inner demons.
Spiritual Warriors still have my utmost respect.
However I am no longer hold them in awe.
I have come to realize that all those inner demons, fears, and that great big inner judge are not real. They do exist, but they are not real. They are creations of your imagination and only exist in the abstract. The only power they have is from the faith you put in them. They have no sustaining power of their own, or are any more real than a dream you had last night. They exist only in the abstract imagination of the mind.
What you are really facing are projections of your imagination. When put in that perspective, you realize that your inner demons are illusions. Then it doesn’t take as much courage as I first assumed.
I still have the utmost respect for spiritual warriors that challenge the fears, judgments, and illusions in their mind. However I no longer see it as taking extraordinary courage. It’s really just a matter of common sense to rid your mind of these emotional drama making illusions.
