"The warrior savours solitude. He enjoys being alone in the forest or on the mountain. Sitting staring into his campfire, listening to the sounds of the night and staring up into the heavens observing the stars. The stars talk to him in this space, as does the wind whispering through the trees and the gurgling of the nearby stream as it tumbles over the rocks heading ever seaward. In such a place the warrior is accepted and feels nurtured. Old wounds are healed and new learning is garnered. The warrior meditates in this place of nature and seeks to deepen his understanding of the world. Nature is the greatest of all teachers and the warrior is an eternal student of nature."
