To my paternal grandfather,
my first Warrior, who influenced
my own life more than any other
single person, and to all people
everywhere who yearn to be free,
happy and have peace.
PLEDGE OF THE MUTUALITY WARRIOR
I lift my right hand against destructiveness.
I extend my left hand in caring.
With my right hand I confront fear, oppose greed,
deflate egoism, challenge laziness, disarm the abuser,
expose the manipulator and deprive the parasite.
These are seven destroyers of life.
With my left hand I administer compassoin, embrace
intimacy, engage in play, express uniqueness, bestow
praise, inspire oneness and give all to love.
These are the seven "enhancers" of life.
In this full life stance I am: I know; I feel; I do.
I am being the knowing, the feeling, the doing.

I have come that men may have life; and have it in all its
But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his
fig tree; and none shall make them afraid.
First of all, although men have a common destiny, each
individual also has to work out his own personal salvation
for himself in fear and trembling. We can help one another
to find the meaning of life no doubt. But in the last
analysis, the individual person is reesoponsible for living his
own life and for "finding himself." If he persists in shifting
his responsibility to somebody else he fails to find out the
maning of his own existence. You cannot tell me who I
am, and I cannot tell you who you are. If you do not know
your own identity, who is going to identify you?
Live all you can; it's a mistake not to. It doesn't so much
matter what you do in particular as long as you have your
But whre was I to start? he world is so vast, I shall start
with the country I know best, my own. But my country is so
very large, I had better start with my town. But my town
too, is large. I had best start with my street. No; my home.
No: my family. Never mind, I shall start with myself.
And now am I their song.
This book is about "a way of being." Since there is more than a single way of being we have no intention of denying their existence or evauating them. The way of being presened in this volume has the distinctioin of being unique in that it conforms to the twofold nature of man and his environment. Being an ecological apporach its focus is on man and his relationship to his world, with primary emphasis on the maximization of harmony between the two. "Toward Being a Mutuality Warrior," is a more particularized way of expressing this adventful lifestyle. With conviction, the author categorically declares that the present condition of human existence makes it imperative that he say to his fellow-human beings that becoming Mutuality Warriors is the way they can best demonstrate that they really care about themselves and others.
What can be called the "refrain" of the song of Creation proclaimed at the end of each day of Creation following the first day is "And God saw that it was good," except for the last day when it became "It was very good." Today, aeons and ages latter, good remains in the world and it is, in part the goodness of man who was the "Masterpiece of Creation." But three is evil- madness and badness in the world and it is threatening to overcome good and prevail. The evidence is nearly everywhere. The human race is beset by problems and not least among them is man's inhumanity to man which occurs on a grandiose scale unparalleled in all human history. Human destructiveness brought on by drug abuse, violence, poverty (often in the midst of affluence), homelessness, blatant and sometimes vicious immorality, pollution and political corruption make it unmistakable clear, to all who can see that we are in a crucible which an increasing number of people feel we cannot extricate ourselves from. Can we surive? Hopelessness which is causing some people to self-destruct, even to commit suicide; some by sudden termination of life and others by extended dying, particularly induced by drugs and psychological stress indicates that survival without meaning ultimately becomes nonsurvival.
Given the existing condition of human existence it appears that only Mutuality Warriros can reverse the direction we are headed and bring about a restoration and maybe, a transforation, of man and his world. Scientists, physicians, lawyers, teachers, ministers, soldiers and other specialists, as well as non-specialists, do not have the power or the methodology of a commited lifestyle to deal effectively with the overall human condition. As a matter of fact, these people are much too often, a part of the problem. They do not have the dicipline, compassion or self-independence that are necessary for bringing about drastic change in individuals and society. Even a soldier is lacking in many of the most rudimentary qualities possessed by the Mutuality Warrior. The soldier is automatized and incapable of functioning alone with the same degree of effectiveness that he can when regimented. The Mutuality Warrior functions effectively alone, is self-directed, and unldike the solduier, is propelled from within rather than by external forces. A Mutuality Warrior must never be referred to as a soldier or visa vesa, for that matter.
At this stage in man's evolution and dehumanization only Mutuality Warriors are capable of restoring, reclaiming and establishing peace and freedom--to reverse the present course so that the direction will be toward equity which is essentil for peace. There can be peace only when it coexist with p-i-e-c-e. Who else othe than Mutuality Warriors can take back the streets and power centers whch hve been taken over by those who prey, often and in the most vicious manner on those who seek peace? Who else other than Mutuality Warriors can demonstrate that tose in the underclass can are more honorable and worthy of respect than millionaires? Who else but Mutuality Warriors can confront a corrupted and morally bankrupted system with spiritual power and dethrone political power? The asnwer is; nobody but Mutuality Warriors?
Even if you do not become a Mutuality Warrior reading this book will enable you to have a better quality of life--to become a more fulfilled and happier person.
Alhough many persons and circumstances have contributerd to the producing of this saga of a Mutuality Warrior, and I graciously extend to them my thanks, my preeminent gratitude and adoration, I give to the Nameless One, known by many names, all insufficient, Who gave to me this revelation which you have an opportunity to vicariously experience by reading this book and by practicing what it reveals become the person you were meant to be.

We cannot avoid
Cannot escape the compulsion
To afflict the world,
So let us, cautious in diction
And mighty in contradiction,
- Martin Buber
from "Power and Love"
And I heard the voice of the Lord
saying, "Whom shall I send and who
will go for us?" Then I said, "Here I
am! Send me."
Throughout the world today there is the echo and re-echo of desperation. Sometimes it is "quiet desperation," but more often it is expressed in self-denial, drugging of body and mind, displaced and randomly mis-oriented violence and revolution. This is evidence that the human race is in a survival crisis; it is not just another crisis: it s a life and death situation with far-reaching implications for the human race as a whole. Everything that can be shaken is being shaken and the shaking is increasing before our very eyes. There is a manifesed helplessness. But are we?
Obviously, man has the capacity, if not the will, to respond with effectiveness to this moment of desperation which threatens his vey existence. To be sure, the challenge is geat. TFhere is a "mean spirit" in our world and like a contagious virus it has and continues to spread like wildfire. It has now reached epiedemic proportion. In the face of this, "What can we do?" That's the question this book answers. It says, we can do it--survive and live in freedom and have peace. And, ordinary people who can become extraordinary will have to take responsibility for their own survival and, in a community-sense, that of others as well. We are in this together, wehether we recognize if or not. We are caught up in an inescapable netwrok of aggregational togetherness, which has the potential to become a network of mutuality.
Isaiah was quiet ordinary. As a matter of fact, he had said, prior to volunteering to go in response to the Lord's call for someone to go, "Woe is me! For I am undone!" He recognized that he was lost, but he felt imbued weth a "sense of mission," and he had conviction that he -just one- could make a difference.
Careful observation of the present condition which is trying men's souls as never before, reveals that only Mutuality Warriors possess the awareness, sufficiency, skill and is able to make a commitment, i.e., embrace a way of life which can adequately respond to the reality of the human predicament. To be a Mutuality Warrior does not mean that a person cannot be engaged in various kinds of employment and services. In our discussion on "Paths of Power," we have stated that the Teacher, the Healer, the Joker and he Warrior paths are one. For at tmes the Mutuality Warrior, as the reader will recognizde, is not merely a teacher or healer; he is "something more" and that "something more" is what you are being summoned to become.
We are not at the point where we can offer non-violence, violence, religion, education, economics, government or love as the instruments for deliverance - survival, freedom and peace.
We must prepare and offer Mutuality Warriors and the time to do that is now. Only Mutuality Warriors, we us repeat over and over again, will save us from ourselvees. We are set on destroying oursevlves. That's what exploitation, oppressiveness and man's inhumanity to man , in general, are all about. But the Mutuality Warrior who takes no delight in extravagance and hoarding and who is free of a "consciounsness sof scarcity" which plagues the masses is able and willing to execute this mission an be the guardian or dominionist man was created to be. The Creator gave him dominion over the earth.
Since my discovery of Mutuality, over a quarter of a century ago I have endeavored to find a term that would appropriately describe a person whoes life conforms to the Mutuality philosophy. I had been unsuccessful, until my research led me to the Warrior. I found a Warrior to be a Mutuality practitioner at heart. He meets two of the essential requirements in this ragard: (1) being inner-directed he manifests a presence that is a "Magna Carta" of his own uniqueness, and (2) he acts responsibly as he responds situationally to life inviolate of goodness, beauty and truth.
This book is not just a discourse on philosophy. It is a guidebook, a traning manual and a Bible, which can show the reader how to become restorer of goodness by being a transformer.
In Part One, "The Preparation," the focus is on how to achieve, or more correctly, how to discover, power, and how to apply it in victorious living. Awareness and the practicum that involve an internship are keys in the preparation of the Mutuality Warrior.
Part Two "The Song," is the story of "The Journey" rhythmically expressed with crescendo cadences of a Mutuality Warrior. Here, the Mutuality Warrior is living the life that makes a difference and enjoying it.
The "Appendix" consists of songs, both lyrics and melodies, sung by the Mutuality Warrior while on "The Journey."
I enjoin you to partake liberally of the offeing that awaits you.

The human race is faced with the challenge of a human race-lifetime. It is the challenge of existence. Can we survive"? Can we find meaning in survival? the Creator gave humans dominon over the earth and all its resources, including self-rule. Despite the collective consciousness of the human race we have not demonstrated a willingness to live in a humane society. We forge ahead, in spite of ourselves, to that crucial and pivotal point where we can make a quantum leap that will usher in the transformation of man and his world
Not in all history has man been so vulnerable and doom-intrigued as he is now. The possibility that he will destory himself is real and it could happen without nuclear war. Pollution and hopelessness are among the myriad causes that are no less a threat to human destructiveness than nuclear war. Restlessness and meaninglessness, so prevalent in our society, can no longer be consider mere alienation. Indeed man has abandoned himself and the next logical step for him to take self-annihilation. But he has acted illogically before, so, just maybe, his illogical behavior this time around will catapult him into the potential obit. Because of the collective consciousness of the human race there exists heightened consciousness which makes it possible for man to emulate the pheonix bird that rose out of its ashes. Man can reise from this shadowy existene as the "masterpiece" he was created to be.
Survival of the human race rests with that illuminati-like people known as Mutuality Warriors. Unlike other people the Mutuality Warrior is capable and willing to eb in charge of himself and the earth. He is involved and committred to creative living. The condition of our environment requires application of an ecological approach to the huamn condition. Just as a soldier is the most appropriate person to confront enemies on the battlefield, in time of war, a Mutuality Wariror is the best qualified and most competent person to cofornt forces of human destructiveness in society. In the name of accuracy let us make it clear that a solder and a Mutuality Warrior are not syonymous terms. A Mutuality Warrior should not, to repeat, be called a soldier or visa versa, even though, at times, he may become engaged in physicall combat. During such confrontation he applies skills and uses powers that are not availabe to a soldier, though a General he may be. The Mutuality Warrior, unlike the soldier, acts in response to an internal, rather than external, command. And, even when engaged in an endeavor with other Mutuality Warriors he chooses each step he takes, in the same manner he chose and continues to choose himself. A Mutuality Warrior canot be any man's disciple or devotee. Equally as important he will not be anyone's leader. Even his teaching is, for the most part, by precepts and examples, rather than any direct attempt to teach.
the Mutuaity Warrior assists, rather than helps. This is a clear indicatioin that he has no intention of taking responsibility from anybody or for anybody other than for himself. He would consider doing otherwise to be irresponsible. Without the Mutualtiy Warroir no restoration or transformation of man and his environment is possible.
The Mutuality Warrior is a person who possesses power and he knows how to ue it in creating, nurturing and protecting the gifts and resources of planet earth. He uses his power to enhance the quality of life for himself, others, and the environment. We call him a "Mutuality Warrior" becuse he adheres to and practices the naturalistic Full Life Porcess philosophy discovered by Uriah J. Fields, known as "Mutuality," (The Mutuality concept will be discussed in detail later).
The power that the Mutuality Warrior posseses is love-power, and it is the strongest power in the universe. It is the only solution to the problem of human existence. Love-power, rather than love is useds so thatt it will be less likely that the erader will succumb to the same tempatation as those who view love as being weak. Of course, nothing could be furthr from the truth. This writer feels that it is also incumbent upoon him to point out that love is not enough, but it sure helps a lot. Love-power is what we do that is good and right. Power is the abilitt to cause or permit change, and there are only two kinds of power, namely, spiritual power and political power. Spiritual powr is inner-power and political power is external powere. Polical power is primarly coercive and manipulative. Spiritual power good and health-oriented. Obviousy, spiritual power is the strongest of the two. Love power is either the embodiment of, or it is embodied in, spiritual power.
THE PATHS OF POWER
To very man there openeth
A way, and ways, and a way
And the high soul climbs the high way,
And the low soul groupes the low,
And in between, on the misty flats
The rest drift to and fro,
But to every man there openeth
A high way and a low,
And every man decideth
The way his soul shall go.*
The ways of power are many, especially as far as the nuances of their expression are concened. Here, no attempt is being made to limit or fit the various expressions of power or include within orur teaching, every conceivable means of travel. Our primary focus is on the Mutuality Wariror path but the student cannot knowledgeably discuss or choose that path, until he familiarizes himself with three other paths of power.
Our purpose an task in this discourse are to inspire disciplined training which is designed to enable the Warrior-to-be to get in touch with his inner-power so he can bcome ready, able and willing to exercise that power outwardly with clarity, purpose decisiveness and joy. In order to achieve this obejctive or, perhaps more correctly, be in the flow, we have focused the training in four primary areas: the Teacher, the Healer, the Joker and the Warrior paths of power. Power is directed and utilized purposefully and with intentionality. When applied by the Mutualty Warrior it is a force for good rather than evil. There is an evilness or weakness in powerlessness.
As we continue our discussin it will become apparent to the reader that these four paths of power are interrelated closely, so that a maser of one, especially a Warror, functiond competently within the others. The Mutuality Warrior must lern the basic knowledge and wisdom that is found in these disciplines. In time, he will be able to refine his training and specialize, so to speak, in one or possibll two of these areas, based on his particular endowments and commitment to the Full Life Process. The Mutuality Warrior is to be constantly aware of the fact that his talents are gifts from the Master of the universe. With this awareness he acknowledges the Creator in all his endeavors and possesses a sense of the onnness of the Creator and himself.
Beyond this introductory statement, there is much more to be said about "Th paths of power," and we propose to explore them subsequently in our discussion. "Mutuality," a concept which the reader may be unfamiliar with or have only a limted knowedge about, is the philosophy which undergirds the Mutuality Warrior's trrining, hence, the Mutuality Warrior's developmet and livingness, particularly his employment, or expression, or power. Therefore, it is vital for us to discuss in some detail, the Mutuality philosopy before elucidating further on the Teacher, the Healer, the Joker and the Warrior paths. Tis detour has profound merit and, even for readers who may not become Mutuality Warriors, possessing a knowledge of the Mutuality philosophy will definitely prove to be beneficial. iIn applying the Mutuality philosophy to living a person experiences more living in his life and more life in his living, both quantitatively and qualitatively. He becomes more accepting of growing responsibilities, including taking responsibility for his own happiness while simultaneously discovering more meaning and experiencing more joy in living. Translated this means perpetual aliveness.
For those who wlll become Mutuality Warriors the discussion on Mutuality will serve as a paradigm for power as they pursue training, develop skills and acquire power or, more correctly, discover the power within. It will also introduce them to the Full Life Process which has been the way -- the High Way -- of the Masters and potential-functioning people in every age. It will also enable the individual Mutuality Warrior student to know that he can make a difference.
We shall now focus our attention on "Mutuality." Afterwards, we will return to our discussion on the "paths of power" under the caption, "synthesis-synopsis of the paths of power."
