When you believe you divert responsibility to a higher cause like a Knight , a Samurai etc... You do it as a humble servant and you are willing to kill or be killed not for yourself ...but for the will of the Almighty and to shed the light of the truth to the world . A sense of righteousness emotes from your soul and there is a beauty and cleansing effect that is undiscribable like the one I just discribed .
Finally I do miss the guidance and company of my earthly father and mother and I cannot imagine life without a Heavenly Father watching over me . I need to be guided by someone greater than me or anyone that I know
