Of all the qualities a spiritual warrior or seeker needs in the journey of life, the spirit and a will to endure are of the utmost importance. As one of the kendo masters, Bob Anderson, said: “There will be trials, and there will be harsh challenges. Life is a contact sport and there will be bruises.” The desire and will to survive and recover from failure are extremely important and necessary.
History also proves that when, in 1306, Robert the Bruce stayed in the cave for three months of winter, while being hunted by the soldiers of King Edward I in Scotland. It was a bad time in his life when he was defeated in battle, he had to witness his brothers executed, and his sister taken away. Bruce’s only companion in the cave is the spider trying to spin continuously in the windy cave. Over and over again, the incoming wind tore the web to pieces. But in the end, the spider succeeded in its expedition and the web was able to withstand the storm. Maintaining a resilient will and maintaining a sense of humor is of utmost importance to our health, coupled with the belief that it will light up another day filled with new opportunities.
