The 1-in-100 Warrior Award

18 Feb

“Out of every one hundred men, ten shouldn’t even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back.” ~Heraclitus

When we hear the word “warrior,” many think of simply the sword. Hardness and cold resolve. The reason for the symbol of the 1-in-100 Warrior Award having both the sword and the feather is because warriors are beautiful too. They’re elegant. They’re graceful. They exude a calming peace and warmth. They are radiant.

One of my mentors, Elbert Hubbard, once wrote a prayer that perfectly describes what a warrior is to me:

“The supreme prayer of my heart is not to be learned, rich, famous, powerful, or “good,” but simply to be radiant. I desire to radiate health, cheerfulness, calm courage and good will. I wish to live without hate, whim, jealousy, envy, fear. I wish to be simple, honest, frank, natural, clean in mind and clean in body, unaffected–ready to say “I do not know,” if it be so, and to meet all men on an absolute equality–to face any obstacle and meet every difficulty unabashed and unafraid.

I wish others to live their lives, too–up to their highest, fullest and best. To that end I pray that I may never meddle, interfere, dictate, give advice that is not wanted, or assist when my services are not needed. If I can help people, I’ll do it by giving them a chance to help themselves; and if I can uplift or inspire, let it be by example, inference, and suggestion, rather than by injunction and dictation. That is to say, I desire to be radiant–to radiate life.”

It’s my honor to give the 1-in-100 Warrior Award to a beautiful and radiant warrior: Sue Dreamwalker. Her writings exude warmth, hope, patience, love and strength.  I speak often of the truth that we all have inside of us. Sue hears it. She listens to it. She follows it. She “gets it.” We often hear that “knowledge is knowing, wisdom is doing,” and so many are merely knowledgeable but not wise because it takes too much effort to live that truth. Sue is one of the few that listens and then lives it. When someone is radiant, as described in Hubbard’s prayer, it is undeniable. She’s 1-in-100, and we are lucky to have her: http://suedreamwalker.wordpress.com


Guidelines for the 1-in-100 Warrior Award: To acknowledge and honor the rarity of the warrior, it is recommended that the recipient passes this award on to only *one* other blogger that they feel goes above and beyond to serve and inspire others, and who maintains their grace and positivity even in the face of difficult challenges, such as health issues, tragedy, injustice or loss.

Once an author is given the award, they may continue nominating one new blog author once a week, month, year… or whatever seems appropriate. It’s like a knight’s ability to bestow knighthood onto another whenever they choose. But only one at a time. The patience of a warrior is required.


Liebster Blog Award

16 Jan

Thank you to the lovely and talented Bipolarmuse for nominating Warrior Poet Wisdom for the Liebster Blog. I’m always so honored when others make an effort to share my work with others. Take a peek at how many read and comment here on WordPress, as well as how many follow on Facebook. Most of those numbers are a result of someone making the effort to share what they’ve read here with other people. True, I would probably still be writing even if no one was reading, but it’s so much more encouraging when you know what you’re creating is make a difference in even once person’s life. Thanks for reading, for sharing, and for inspiring and encouraging right back. Much love to you all, my warrior brothers and sisters.
The guidelines for the Liebster Blog Award:

1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks for the award and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Post the award on your blog.
4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the blogsphere – other bloggers.
5. And, best of all – have fun and spread the karma.

My five nominees in no particular order:

1. J. White Sensei – I have the utmost respect for martial artists who understand that violence is a last resort. Wonderful posts here about the psychology of fighting, competition and self-defense.

2. Julie Catherine – A fellow warrior poet, singing ballads of positivity, strength, inspiration and selflessness.

3. 365 Veterans – Honoring true warriors and heroes: the veterans.

4. The Creative Juicer – A brother in Christ, and like me, a friend to all faiths and religions.
