The Ninja are a mysterious warrior elite said to be so spiritually advanced that they know the mind and will of God. Regarded with awe as masters of invisibility and "warriors of the shadow-self", their legendary skills include the ability to command the elements and transform themselves into Fire, Water, Air, Earth and Void - the nothingness from which all things stem. In this book, Ross Heaven reveals the training exercises and mental discipline used by the Ninja to develop these extraordinary physical, emotional, mental and spiritual skills. Central to Ninja philosophy is the understanding that there is no higher power than the actualised human being. The Ninja believe there are four gates to freedom and, to pass through them, we must overcome four initiatory ordeals. Succeeding at these enables us to combat fear, find true power, clarify our vision and overcome the soul fatigue that is at the root of our personal and social problems in order to embrace our positive energies and realise our talents. Ross Heaven guides us through these four gateways with exercises and initiations that utilise the energy of the lover, seeker, magus, soul warrior and mystic, as well as dealing with their shadow manifestations that may be causing problems in our lives. We learn how to break the destructive habits of the past and create bushido, a personal code to live by. Without initiation, we cannot access and channel our energies; they remain uncontrolled or even work against us to turn these elemental forces into allies.
