The Warrior stage of consciousness offers solidarity for larger groups of people and provides them with a powerful identity. While it helps people engage in something much bigger than themselves, it comes with a huge cost. In this podcast and post, I explain why the warrior consciousness will never have peace and why it is so popular within religion, military and business. This is a stage that can be visited, but it must not be our home. The ruin of the warrior consciousness emerges when empathy for “the other” is found in our hearts and we take the good things from this stage into a wider understanding of the truth.
