Spiritual Warrior Credos

.Strephon Says 10 Spiritual Warrior Credos

Strephon suggests living by a set of values, a credo, to counter the attitudes and values put into us by our parents and society. If we do not develop our own credo we suffer spiritual death. Two credos are recited by Strephon. (11 minutes)

The Dream Warrior Credo
by Strephon Kaplan-Williams

I have no dreams, I am born in the night
I have no problems, my problems I take as my own and give them to nobody
I have no lust, I live creatively life’s energies as they arise in me
I have no love, I express caring and passion in all that I do
I have no innocence, I take things as they come
I have no guilt, I have betrayed no one by meeting their expectationsMusashi's Portret
I have no hate, all can deny me at any place and at any time
I have no anger, I am continually wounded by the rough edges of life
I have no peace, my heart is full of emptiness as I let all of life in
I have no center, the center is not where I can place it
I have no I, the I that is me resides in all my choices
I have no life, what I want is never what I get
I have no death, there is no place that I can call home

Warrior’s Creed
I have no parents: I make the heavens and earth my parents.
I have no home: I make awareness my home.
I have no life or death: I make the tides of breathing my life and death.
I have no divine power: I make honesty my divine power.
I have no means: I make understanding my means.
I have no magic secrets: I make character my magic secret.
I have no body: I make endurance my body.
I have no eyes: I make the flash of lightning my eyes.
I have no ears: I make sensibility my ears.
I have no limbs: I make promptness my limbs.
I have no strategy: I make “unshadowed by thought” my strategy.
I have no designs: I make “seizing opportunity by the forelock” my design.
I have no miracles: I make “right action” my miracles.
I have no principles: I make adaptability to all circumstances my principles.
I have no tactics: I make emptiness and fullness my tactics.
I have no talents: I make ready wit my talent.
I have no friends: I make my mind my friend.
I have no enemy: I make carelessness my enemy.
I have no armor: I make benevolence and righteousness my armor.
I have no castle: I make immovable-mind my castle.
I have no sword: I make absence of self my sword.
-written by an anonymous Samurai, Fourteenth Century [“The Awakened Warrior : Living With Courage, Compassion, and Discipline” Rick Fields, editor. 1994]
