Syria: Waging Spiritual War
April 7, 2017
As he began to pray his prayer of protection, I had a dream. A battle began around me. I wanted to shout out, “Everyone be quiet!” but he says I woke up yelling something that sounded as if it were in a different language.
He said his heart skipped a beat and wondered what was going on and exactly what kind of #spiritual_warfare we both were waging at the exact same time.
We shared our dreams and prayed together. My husband had gone to bed before the news about #Syria had been aired on television, but still his spirit was keen enough to feel the oppression and pain of the Syrian nation and of the concerned people all around the world. This kind of receptivity to the spiritual and physical needs of the world is why each of us meditate and spend time studying the spiritual masters.
If you are a person who has been growing spiritually and awakened to the place of praying for others and interceding for the Whole, then you probably are well aware of the effect the world government and Syria has on our spiritual peace.
Sitting quietly had become a watchful place, as if I am a guardian over the world with all of my spiritual brothers and sisters. I felt our prayers were rising together in one accord to the heavens. Angels in the spiritual realms were hearkening to our prayers and preparing to ride metaphor chariots to fight on the behalf of Good, Love, and Light in the world.
My spiritual friends, we have been created for times like these. This is the time your soul has been preparing for as you grow stronger and become more of a co-creator each day. We are the conduits of Spirit on this Earth now, the only voice of Source. We must take up our Spiritual Weapons of Warfare and fight the good battle for the Wholeness of the world. This is our spiritual duty.
Perhaps, this is the time the Apostle John talked about in Revelations.
There have been many times in history when war seemed as if it were bringing on the final battle of good against evil. However, in the speed up of time, in the age of amazing technology, it’s hard to fathom how we could get any closer to the cry of the ages rising from the depths of Earth’s bosom.
I feel it. Most of you feel it. What are we to do about it?
Do we mount horses and buy the same guns we have fought against? Do we steal a sword like the Apostle Peter and cut off the ear of a soldier? No, that would not be what Peace would do. There is a battle here that is being waged that is Spiritual.
- Syria is a spiritual battle.
- The U.S. government is a spiritual battle.
- Terrorism is a spiritual battle that has started in the minds of men and women, and will ultimately have to be fought in the mind as well.
REMEMBER: THERE IS ONLY ONE MIND!
Some of the human souls that house this One Mind are sick and need help. Like the white blood cells that fight disease, we the spiritual wise and peacemakers will take up our spiritual Coat of Arms and fight this battle—spiritually. We will know our truth for the good of all and keep our mind affixed to it no matter what we see or witness on the news.
Does this mean that we will not be called to speak up or fight this spiritual battle on the physical level?
I believe some of us have been called to the physical fight. However, there is a small cluster of highly evolved spiritual beings that meet in the spiritual realm with the angels and wage this war on a Spiritual level first.
“Count on this: In your quiet time, stand guard! Don’t let your candle burn out in the middle of the night. When you hear the cry of the poor, downtrodden and sick—pray harder. Take your spiritual antennas and raise them higher, so that you can feel and know only the Peace that you absolutely know is ours to have and hold—when all is said and done.”

Buddhist scholars say there is no justification for war in Buddhist teaching. Yet Buddhism has not always separated itself from war. There is historic documentation that in 621 CE monks from the Shaolin Temple of China fought in a battle that helped establish the Tang Dynasty.
In centuries past, the heads of Tibetan Buddhist schools formed strategic alliances with Mongol warlords and reaped benefits from the warlords’ victories.
The links between Zen Buddhism and samurai warrior culture were partly responsible for the shocking collusion of Zen and Japanese militarism in the 1930s and 1940s. For several years, a virulent jingoism seized Japanese Zen, and teachings were twisted and corrupted to excuse killing. Zen institutions not only supported Japanese military aggression but raised money to manufacture war planes and weapons.
Observed from a distance of time and culture, these actions and ideas are inexcusable corruptions of dharma, and any “just war” theory that arose from them were the products of delusion. This episode serves as a lesson to us not to be swept up in the passions of the cultures we live in. Of course, in volatile times that is easier said than done.
In recent years, Buddhist monks have been leaders of political and social activism in Asia. The Saffron Revolution in Burma and the March 2008 demonstrations in Tibet are the most prominent examples. Most of these monks are committed to nonviolence, although there are always exceptions. More troubling are the monks of Sri Lanka who lead the Jathika Hela Urumaya, “National Heritage Party,” a strongly nationalist group that advocates a military solution to Sri Lanka’s ongoing civil war.
