9 The Warrior Archetype

Episode Nine: Why Study the Warrior Archetype?

Do we study the Warrior Archetype so we can strap on a sword and march off to battle?

My reason is different.

For me, it’s about the inner war—the battle inside my head to become who I was born to be, to live in the world with integrity and empathy and love, to face down my demons, and do my work.

In today’s video, we’ll dip into the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita, and explore the notion that the outer war and the inner war are one and the same thing.

    Good episode to put things into context, and to clarify that this isn’t about the glorification of killing. The truth and lessons are found in the metaphor. Maybe not a perfect example, but I reflect on how the Genesis story is not literally about “the world being created in seven days,” but metaphorically lines up nicely against the big bang, formation of worlds, and emergence of life.

    You bring a lot of insight into this space, and we appreciate you.

      I agree with you, the author tried his best. Thanks for the great article!

    It’s easy to get distracted and overwhelmed by the stresses of daily life. Thanks Steve, for posting this as a reminder of how to approach life with a long term view that doesn’t forget our basics

    On an interesting Time of my Life, all your books and specially this series keep hitting the right spot. I have learned from The War of Art and The Artist Journey a great amount of How. On this series, the courage of the archetypes. But in the last few months and specially today, I am struggling with the What. What to do ? What goals to pursue ? What I am going to do today ? I am a Camera Operator, with no much work, and spread widely on Design, I make wood things, a bit of Writing, I like investigative journalism. Lot’s of little projects staring at me. And there are days where I do . . . nothing. Today I am shouting for help.
    If you write a new book to help people decide What to do, I am your Arjuna.

    Thank You, Thank You and Thank You

    You are amazing, Steve, to be so generous to make these videos, as well as Writing Wednesdays. Thank you so much! Truly inspiring.

  5. Brian Nelson on September 14, 2020 at 8:08 am

    Steve,
    Looks like I’ll need to revisit Bhagavad Gita again. Embarrassingly, but not without precedent, I totally missed the names of the friends when I first listened to this a few years ago.

    Knowing that these enemies (friends as well–maybe the friends that led me to smoking weed and being a vandal in high school…) are ever present is also very helpful.

    Another thank you for doing this video series during this particular time in history. I doubt I’m alone in this, but current events are like a monster-sized negative magnet that pulls my thoughts and feelings toward fear, doubt, anger, resentment, judgment, and eventually a narcissistic nihilism. Those of us on the West Coast are experiencing a lock-in from COVID, and now a lock in from smoke. Kinda feels a bit like your last book. Cannot even walk the dogs. Oh. Yuck. I shouldn’t project my own madness on the entire planet–so 2020 also coincides with me doing a significant pivot for my own business, which is terrific kindling for the fire of Resistance anyway. The world is just a rather large bellows on the flames.

    Getting a dose of Pressfield Wisdom more than once a week has made a significant difference these past few weeks.

    • Margret Dugan on September 14, 2020 at 12:31 pm

      Hmmmm. I wonder how resistance will fare in this battle.

      • Brian Nelson on September 14, 2020 at 3:59 pm

        Margret,
        Anytime I underestimate my own version of Resistance…I lose.

      Brian, what I want to know: we’ve got high school teams with names like Pirates, Raiders, Buccaneers, Vikings, Rebels, and Outlaws.

      But no teams called “The Vandals.” You can be our case study that “Vandals are people, too.”

      • Brian Nelson on September 14, 2020 at 4:00 pm

        I have actually considered University of Idaho for a PhD program on their mascot name alone! I love the nickname of Vandal…although according to Ancestry, I should favor the Vikings…

    Steve,
    Which is your favorite/preferred translation of the Bhagavad Gita?
