My benefactor used to say that a warrior who stumbles on a petty tyrant is a lucky one.
The only bird that will peck at an Eagle is the crow. He sits on his back and bites his neck. The eagle does not respond or fight with the crow, it doesn’t waste time or energy on the crow.
It simply opens its wings and begins to rise higher in the sky. The higher the flight the harder it is for the crow to breathe and then the crow falls due to lack of oxygen.
Stop wasting your time with the crows in your life.
Just take them to your heights and they’ll fade.
A petty tyrant is a tormentor. Someone who either holds the power of life and death over warriors or simply annoys them to distraction.
A petty tyrant is a person who causes distress by imposing his/her will on others using psychological pressure rather than physical force. The petty tyrant feels he may impose his will because he believes that he is a superior being and because he wants to operate from a position of authority.
Petty tyrants are the button-pushers, the individuals that have the ability to throw things off-balance for you if you let them. Many petty tyrants are unaware that they are the cause of so much frustration. They are effective teachers because they force the warrior to closely monitor their own reactions and habitual behaviors. The result is mindfulness and the ability to shift the assemblage point , even if ever so slightly, in order to loosen the fixation to the conditioned response that causes the reaction in the first place.
“don’t take anything personally.” This is the biggest gift of the petty tyrant. To be able to recognize that even though you will be annoyed to no end by the petty tyrant one must not allow themselves to be energetically attached to the petty tyrant. They are ruthless and are often painfully consistent in throwing someone off of the center quickly and effectively. To fall prey to a petty tyrant means that you allow yourself to become agitated repeatedly by the same words, behaviors and attitudes over and over again.
The freedom arrives when the petty tyrant no longer affects you. You are in their presence and they are the same they have always been. Annoying to no end, distracting and even disruptive but they just don’t have the same affect on you anymore. You are no longer annoyed or imbalanced by them. You have accomplished the feat of shifting your assemblage point so that you no longer perceive annoyances in the same manner you did in the past and you have successfully severed the energetic stronghold that the petty tyrant had on your self-importance. In fact, you can’t even remember what it was that annoyed you so much in the first place.
This is the gift. The petty tyrant pushes and pushes and pushes until the very thing(s) that bothered you about them in the first place no longer do. Unwittingly, they set the stage for growth in areas you may not have even realized should be addressed. The petty tyrant can stop your world by activating a series of emotions and responses within you that you could not even imagine existed. They are, in their own right, a portal for deepening your quest for freedom.
Even the worst tyrants can bring delight, provided, of course, that one is a warrior.
Αfter considerable experience with tyrants the warrior is approached by inorganic beings allies entities …CHOOSE YOUR ALLY
An ally is a power a warrior can bring into her/his life to help , advise , and give the strength necessary to perform acts, whether big or small, right or wrong.
This ally is necessary to enhance a man’s life, guide his acts, and further his knowledge.
In fact, an ally is the indispensable aid to knowing.
An ally will make you see and understand things about which no human being could possibly enlighten you.
An ally is a power capable of carrying a man beyond the boundaries of himself.
It is neither a guardian nor a spirit. It is an aid.
