What a Knight holds dear...

So many people in this world today care a great deal about purely physical things.

For a "true" knight… there is only one thing that really matters most…

For many, they care strictly about how they live. They want eternal life, a better job, more friends, more money, a sexy husband or wife, a nicer and fancier car/vehicle, a bigger home, a better education and so on and so on.

The things in which they seek often do not make them a better person on the inside… it is all strictly on the outside. One can not blame these people though for virtually all of American society is this way and they are just fitting in with the rest.

The sad thing is… when the time comes, only the family and the estate remember them.

The only thing a knight trains for and prays/hopes for… is the day he dies.

He seeks to have his name remembered beyond just the reach of his family and estate.

He seeks the end with open arms, never turning down the opportunity to save another even if it means his falling. There is no greater honor in this world then falling while saving another!

He holds no value (physically) of anything other than his sword, shield, horse, and his armor. While he may very well love many other things... when push comes to shove, he only carries the above listed as a priority. Every other object within his life is just that… a mere object.

A true knight seeks no fame, or fortune...his destiny is the defense of the weak, to uphold the standard set before him, and to bring peace to the land. The fame comes from his loyalty to his duty, and his discipline of his craft. His thought is not on meeting the status quo, but blazing his own trail, and inspiring the youth and community to pursue a cause much greater than their own lives. A TRUE knights life is a lonely life, where repititious practice and concentration to detail encapsulate most of his day. But, when a true knight is present, honor, integrity, chivalry, loyalty, truth, and charity can abide in the land...

And those that will follow can continue in the footsteps of greatness!

regards,

I am not one that holds such a focus into physical things.... the things I cherish most is my friends and family.... and loved ones......Like my Grandma, I would like to be remembered more for my contributions to society than what possessions I hold.

Love this post
You are right so many "keep up with the Jones" mentality. We are both competitive, but we found it was fighting for the wrong things.
We realized to be "good" in this society means making others rich. You show up work 60 hours, get that project done, and the rich corporate officers say thank you, here a bonus for those millions you raked in for us.

We live each day living how we would want others to remember us by when speaking at our funeral. We have alot of family time, and do alot of charity work. We are much happier driving a second hand car living in a trailer park. Than leasing a penthouse, car, and working working and working. We know each other and our kids. We are hippies born too late.
Nice post once again thank you!

True, the legacy of a Knight is everything to him, he must live everyday as if it were his last. Loyalties are very important to him, and disloyalty is punishable by death. His love is unmatched, first to his god, then to his liege, his people, his friends, but never to himself. He has a vision of himself, and would never do anything to tarnish it.
