In our training as Spiritual Warriors, we want the critics. We want a petty tyrant in our lives, somebody who is able to bug us with impunity, because these people always show us where we are going in relation to our intention. As a result, they can help keep us in line with our intention.
Take some time to answer the following questions in writing. They will help you to focus on the areas inside yourself – inside your Spirit – that are affected by your petty tyrant. You may also want to ask a friend or spouse to read your responses and offer suggestions for handling your petty tyrant.
