Lesson 1) Life offers us the opportunity to become a Spiritual Warrior. A warrior is one who bravely goes into those dark areas within themselves to ferret out the truth of their being. It takes great courage, stamina and endurance to become a Spiritual Warrior. Lesson 2) The path is narrow, the terrain rough and rocky. You will walk alone: through the dark caves, up those steep climbs and through the dense thick forest. You will meet your dark side. The faces of fear, deceit, and sadness all await your arrival.
Lesson 3) No one can take this journey but you. There comes a time, in each of our lives, when we are given the choice to follow this path. Should we decide to embark on this journey, we can never turn back.... Our lives are changed forever On this journey, there are many different places we can choose to slip into and hide. But the path goes on. The Spiritual Warrior stays the course, wounded at times, exhausted and out of energy. Many times, the Warrior will struggle back to their feet to take only a few steps before falling again.
Lesson 4) Rested, they forge on, continuing the treacherous path. The journey continues. The Spiritual Warrior stays the course. Weakened, but never broken. One day, the battle, loneliness and desperate fights are over. The sun breaks through the clouds; the birds begin to sing their sweet melodies. There is a change in the energy. A deep change within the self.
Lesson 5) The warrior has fought the courageous fight. The battle of the dark night of the soul is won. New energy now fills the Warrior. A new path is now laid before them. A gentler path filled with the inner-knowing of one who has personal empowerment.
Lesson 6) With their personal battle won, they are filled with joy. A new awareness that they are one with the Spirit beams as they go forth to show others the way. They are not permitted to walk the path for others. They can only love, guide and be a living example of the Truth of their being.

"The Story of the Rainbow Warrior; The "Rainbow Warrior" in the memory of the Native Indian’s story they called "The Rainbow Warrior." Would you like to 'Hear that story? Do you know what a rainbow is, ‘yes’ sure you do, it’s a beautiful bow of full of colors in the sky. A warrior is a brave person. One who has courage instead of being afraid; well, the Native Indians would tell this story to their children around the campfire; so sit as I tell you the story. The story goes like this: Sometime in the future, the world will change and the Elder Indians said, the animals would begin to disappear. People would no longer see the wolf, or the bear, or the eagles. And, the story goes; the giant trees would also disappear. And people would fight with each other and not love each other. And, the story goes, the beautiful rainbow in the sky would fade away, and people would not see the rainbow anymore.
"Well, children of the new world would come; and these children would love the animals, and they would bring back the animals. They would love trees, and they would bring back the giant trees. And these children would love other people and they would help people to live in peace with, each other; and these children would love the rainbow, and they would bring back the beautiful rainbow in the sky. For this reason the Indians called these children the rainbow warriors. Now let me ask you a question. Do you love animals or hate animals? (We love animals.) Do you love trees or hate trees? (We love trees.) Do you love people or hate people? (We love people.) Do you love the rainbow or hate the rainbow? (We love the rainbow.) Well, if you love animals and trees, people and rainbows, then maybe you are one of the rainbow warriors and that is a statue of you… My brothers and sisters, don’t let the rainbow fade away.. Change the way we see and life in this life… Inspire to Dream and Dream to Inspire…"
