I have been going through a tremendous amount of life turbulence lately, all of it out of my own direct control, and therefore causing me great stress. Chief Joseph's words, channelled by John Cali in "The Way of The Warrior", have been a very timely reminder to me to relax and not take life so seriously. I first discovered "The Way of the Warrior" in this beautiful video presentation by Reinis Ikass.
"The Way of the Warrior" has been so helpful to me that I wanted to make a habit of reviewing it each day, as a reminder of all I believe and how much easier life is if I simply "allow". I have gone through and personalized it for myself, substituting "my way" for "The Warrior's Way" so that it reflects "first person" writing style. An interesting side effect is that it makes "The Way of the Warrior" gender neutral and allows easier internalization of the concepts. As the reader I "own" the concepts more readily when I read "I always" rather than "the Warrior always".
I have John Cali's permission to share my revised rendition with you.
