A Call to All Warriors of Light, Jedi Knights, and Defenders of the Sacred
Written by Theresa Bullard, Ph.D.

I have so much to say about what is going on in the world right now, it is hard to know where to start. What my heart tells me is that it starts with Forgiveness. When I look at the atrocities that are happening all around us now, from Standing Rock to the new administration in the white house, terrorist acts, racism, sexism, separation, fear, judgment, violence, abuse, greed, etc. that is spiraling the world into upheaval, it is easy to go into reaction, resistance, anger, hopelessness, wanting to hide or run away from the problems, etc. Perhaps you have felt those too and found yourself stirred into action from some of these energies. But if you take a moment to step back and observe the essence of these things, you will see that such reactions are ego-based and only add to the problem, either feeding fire with fire (in the case of reacting in anger and resistance), or allowing the fire to go unchecked (in the case of hopelessness, apathy, or wanting to hide/run away from it).
So, we must step back from the whirlwind and tune in to our hearts again. When I do this, my heart says, "Forgive them". It reminds me of the words of many masters and great leaders who have walked this earth and left legacies of positive change in their wake:
"Forgive them, for they know not what they are doing." - Jesus Christ
"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." Thus, "We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies." - Martin Luther King Jr.
"The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong." - Mahatma Gandhi
"People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway." - Mother Teresa
"When we are motivated by compassion and wisdom, the results of our actions benefit everyone, not just our individual selves or some immediate convenience. When we are able to recognize and forgive ignorant actions of the past, we gain strength to constructively solve the problems of the present." - Dalai Lama
"To forgive others is to be good to yourself" - Buddha
To Forgive is not to say that what is happening is "ok". Forgiveness is not condoning or excusing. Rather, Forgiveness is a Release; it Frees Us To Heal from the pain of betrayal and wrong-doing. It also moves us into a place of Acceptance so that we can allow the Light to come in again, to guide us to the next step from a heart-centered place, rather than staying in resistance and suffering. All True Healing Starts With Forgiveness.
Acceptance helps us to stop questioning why and trying to figure out or judge motives. From Acceptance, we can advance through the confusion and rejection of those motives, back into a space of clarity. Through Forgiveness and Acceptance, we can bring Light again into our hearts, and then we can take that Light and send it to those who are acting out of darkness and negativity. Let there be Light! Fiat Lux! And may that Light penetrate the darkness so that we may all see more clearly.
This is what it is to be a Warrior of Light, a Defender of the Sacred, or a Jedi Knight who is One with the Force. This is how a Warrior of Light fights this battle that is raging now. As Warriors of Light we say "NO!" to these dark-agendas, and to the evil of oppression and greed that tries to stop progress and separate us from each other. We stand up to push the darkness back in order to restore balance and harmony. But the main key in being a Warrior of Light, one who actually becomes part of the solution rather than adding to the problem, is in HOW we stand up, the energy behind our actions, and the methods we use.
Being a Warrior of Light requires inner-strength, self-awareness and maturity, because we must be vigilant with keeping our ego in check, reprogramming our life patterns to help us stay positive and in self-mastery, and letting go of emotional attachments, opinions, and judgments, so that our ego doesn't control us with knee-jerk reactions.
I know many people out there are feeling the Spirit of the Warrior rising up inside, but please realize that this force must be harnessed and directed in positive ways if you want to be part of the solution. Far too many people are in reaction right now and adding to the confusion, turmoil, negativity, and separation, creating even more polarization, which only leads to further conflict. Darkness wants that conflict, and they will do whatever they can to provoke it. We are seeing many blatant examples of that right now. Unfortunately, when masses of people organize and demonstrate through protests, marches, and so forth, while they might start out with good intent, more often than not they tend to overwhelmingly become amplifiers and resonant fields of frustration, judgment, and anger that is getting projected towards whatever they are protesting against. All of this leads to drastic negative consequences in the collective consciousness, which then also adversely impacts the planet in some way. So, please check your reactions, redirect your passions, and SHIFT so that you can approach this situation with Light and bring Positivity.
By all means be active and stand up for the virtues and principles that you believe in. Just SHIFT how you are doing it. When I say SHIFT, it is not so much about which actions are being taken, but rather about the energy, mindset, and emotional forces that are being used to fuel those actions. Whether you wish to gather in numbers or work individually, let the resonant field and the driving forces behind it come from love, devotion to a higher cause, passion for creating a better world, dedication to future generations, bringing peace and healing, etc., not from anger, judgment, or further separation.
If our goal is to bring Balance and Harmony to Earth, we must embody balance and harmony and "be the change". Balance can never be achieved through greater polarization. Such polarization only leads to larger pendulum swings (which is what we are seeing right now). Balance and Harmony can only be Manifested through the Qualities of the Heart: Love, Forgiveness, Gratitude, Acceptance, Joy, Healing, Beauty, Inner Strength, Being Centered, Knowing Our Self, Devotion to the Great Work, Willingly Sacrificing the ego in order to Align more fully with the Divine. These are the lessons of Tiphareth on the Tree of Life, the Center Point of Balance and Mediation/Transformation of all things. It is from this point that we can begin to truly tune-in and become "One with The Force".
The Power to Heal is in our Hearts. The Power to Transform is in our Hearts. The Flame of Eternal Being is accessed through our Hearts. As Defenders of the Sacred and Warriors of Light, we must first and foremost be Guardians of that Flame in our Hearts. It is the Flame of our essential Goodness as Humans. That Flame can is diminished when we get caught up in negativity, apathy, hopelessness, judgment, bitterness or resentment. As Warriors of Light, we must first guard our own flame in order to keep it burning bright, and then we step into active service to others and to our world to help bring the flame of our humanity back to brightness and light.
Unfortunately, right now, the collective flame is becoming weaker, and the world truly needs more Warriors of Light and Defenders of the Sacred who will stay strong, stay vigilant, guard your flame and keep it burning bright within you. If your inner warrior is awakening, then let us Unite together as One in this mission to restore balance, peace, and harmony to Earth.
As mentioned before, the Spirit of the Warrior requires proper training in order to fully harness this force within us and direct it towards the best possible outcomes. Training especially in mastering one's own self, overcoming our ego-reactions, and awakening to our god-given potential. I have personally found this much-needed training through the ancient mystery school tradition, in the lineage of King Salomon the Wise which birthed the true order of Knights Templar, the Warriors of Light, the original Jedi Knights known as Ritual Masters. Embarking upon such training is an accelerated path to self-mastery.
The tools and teachings I have learned through this lineage have helped me to
| || |
- Keep my flame burning strong
- Have Joy, Passion and Fulfillment in life
- Live a more Royal, Noble, and Abundant life
- Become the Stillness even amidst the storms
- Awaken to my own God/dess Essence and Power
- Cultivate Deeper Faith Within and in our innate divinity
- Recognize and Appreciate the Beauty of all things, both great and small
- Become a Force of Goodness and a Catalyst for Change in the lives of others
- Adapt an attitude of non-attachment in order to gain the bigger picture perspective
- Harness the forces of Heaven and the Universe and direct them in accord with Higher Will
- Serve this planet in ways that no one person can do alone, and that one would never find within the matrix of our regular society
If you are feeling the call of the Warrior of Light rising up within you, and you are ready to harness this power and be part of the solution, then it is time to find your Morpheus or Obi-Wan Kenobi by seeking out a Guide from the Modern Mystery School in your area. The Modern Mystery School is an authentic mystery school with ancient roots that has brought these teachings and trainings from antiquity into a modern-day setting and format that is available to people today. The first steps on this path are to receive the Life Activation followed by the Empower Thyself Initiation.
