It's interesting...the notion of impeccability as an imperative for the progress of a warrior in training. I took it seriously, of course, at the beginning of my "education" and, of course, failed miserably in terms of manifesting it in my day-to-day life.
Now I know why. Something I learned...apprehended within my body...upon engaging Lujan's corpus of knowledge and while interacting with his luminous clan of heart warriors: impeccability cannot be forced upon oneself from the outside in. Ego-driven perfectionism in order to command control is doomed from the outset. Control over oneself simply cannot coexist in this dissonant state of craving.
The paradox holds the answer. To gain control, in terms of release from ones habitual state of indulging and compromise, one must release the grip that controls. This is called "effortless effort", as I've heard my warrior cohorts say again and again. Cultivating a state of profound release...from our agenda...from our preoccupations...from our long-winded desires...ushers us into a state of suspension that has its seat in the heart of a warrior. And when our hearts are aligned with the moment that we are perennially suspended in, then we are aligned with purpose and energy far beyond our previous machinations. We become bathed in the magic of the moment...and that state, simply put, is impeccability itself. Action flows from this state with smooth, seamless elegance and sophistication that, in my own experience, never ceases to be utterly surprising. It surprises in such a way that the warrior who experiences it...if he or she is worth her salt....can never take full credit for. And this leads us to the notion of a warrior's humility.
Again...humility cannot be contrived...especially alongside attempts resulting in contrived impeccability. True humility...just as true impeccability....is a natural phenomenon of being centered and suspended within one's heart.
Both are a joy to behold...and experience. They are real...and they are natural states of existence. They are our heritage!
