The Four Dignities of The Warriors Path

4 DRAGON – THE WARRIOR OF INSCRUTABLE

***

THE TIGER
WARRIOR OF MEEK

Shambala, the Sacred Path of the Warrior for peace
The meek tiger, not hunting, at ease, in relief

because he likes his body, bounciness and rhythm
He’s relaxed, one of the notorious B.I.G. cats.

“From the tip of hs nose to the tip of his tail
there are no problems”, if there were you know he’d solve them.

With authentic presence the Warrior of the Meek’s vibes
“like the tiger in the jungle, both relaxed and energised.

Constantly inquisitive but awareness is disciplined,
focussed, not fidgeting, chillin, just vision him

Meek, a humble tiger, in the vicinity
“Accomplish every activity without difficulty”

It inspires others to do the same…
The Warrior of Meek has abandoned gain

victory and fame, leaving them far behind.
Modesty allows them to shine…

*****

SNOW LION
THE WARRIOR OF PERKY

Snow lion enjoys the freshness…
of the highland mountains, I guess it’s blessed yes.

Snow lion is vibrant, energetic, and also youthful
Environment is fresh air and wild flowers – all so beautiful.

Snowlion is perky, these kings are cheerful
but not due to the temporary things that are there too.

Unconditional, cheerfulness from ongoing discipline.
Discipline is a pleasure – not a demand

and you’ll find Stage 1 is creating the joyful mind,
Stage 2 is transcending doubt and thoughts of it’s kind.

Free from doubt, practicing continuous joyous discipline,
Free from the lower realms due to the strength that’s within him and

“So the fruition… or the ultimate notion…
Of perky is that you achieve a wholesome

body and mind” and the synchronisation
of the two with resonance between their vibration.

Both humble… AND uplifted!
Fundamentally youthful, some good tools to live with.

Both humble… AND uplifted!
Fundamentally youthful, some good tools to live with.

GARUDA (LEGENDARY TIBETAN KING OF THE BIRDS)
THE WARRIOR OF OUTRAGEOUS

The Warrior for Peace via the outrageous,
Not unreasonable or even wild, nice vibes are contagious.

Pure fearlessness, transcending hope, relax
Release perceptions of the future to which you may be attached.

The Tibetan Garuda, the King of the Birds,
Hatched fully grown to fly to other worlds!

Overcoming hope and fear with a sense of great freedom,
Perceiving perception, a birds eye view sees them.

Outrageousness is that vast mind which has gone
beyond the beyond. Fear and hope be gone.

Replaced with outrageous power and strength
to soar any heights and go any length.

See no fear… and no imperfection,
it’s all refelection within your perception.

With no obstacles obscuring vision,
You can remove them for others and start working with them.

Providing whatever’s needed when it is needed,
Immense capabilities, just you believe it.

Outrageous Garuda, King of the Birds, doesn’t need this…
illusion, flying high in the sky long behind they leave it.

*************

THE DRAGON
THE WARRIOR OF the INSCRUTABLE

Energetic , powerful, unwavering…
Dragon… but the ancients were saying

the dragon does not stand alone without the Tiger’s meekness…
the Lion’s perkiness or the Garuda’s outrageousness!

the combination may lead to this uniqueness,
Maybe this… is why it’s revealed in stages, yes?

Fearlessness develops… gentleness.
and sympathy… for the mentalness.

Non-comittal… unattached…
But with a sense of humour none can match!

The Dragon’s state of being… resting
in the sky, with cloud and wind blessing.

Due to playfulness… and humour, yes King,
there’s no need for depression and no time for stressing.

In the sky throughout summer in the ground throughout winter. Hibernating through the cold bitter

months but once in a while when a storm is necessary
a Dragon breathes lightning and roars thunder! Legendary!

Predictablity within unpredictability
Settled down in their confidence… inscrutability.

Enlightened confidence free from analytical scheme,
Giving rather than takin, creating a dream-world

bringing freedom… from inhibition
relaxing within wisdom, feel and see the vision

of learning without struggle, blockages overcome.
Brilliant. Fearless. Guided by the Great Eastern Sun.
