Stepping out-of-the-mind is impossible without calling upon, and strengthening, the warrior within.
The warrior within wants to engage with life - it wants to live vitally, without holding back. It refuses to allow negativity of any kind to control its destiny. When we are well connected with our inner-warrior we feel the same way. This is the warrior mentality at it's best.
The inner victim, on the other hand, is perpetually concerned with protecting itself from life. It's basic stance is a passive one, always feeling encrouched upon by life and outer circumtance. If our inner victim had it's way we would just curl up in a ball and wait for this life to be over.
The focus of the victim is suffering. The focus of the warrior is vitality. Stepping out-of-the-mind we embrace the warrior and move towards vitality. The victim within stays behind.
