These clarifications are not only helpful, but crucial. Thank you, Andrew.
Continuing to expound further and build on the wisdom practice you shared, there is also the need to prepare the mind for real battle. Fighting shadows is a fool’s errand when real violence is being enacted in the world.
While care is needed not to project war frames where they otherwise would not exist (a form of bringing in shadow energy), care is also needed to discern when a danger presents itself that a trained warrior is ready to fight and destroy (lest he or she be destroyed).
Onward, my friend.
