He says that we must accept that danger exists and that bad things can happen to us. Knowing this is the core of spiritual fitness and the first step in taking proactive steps to protect ourselves and our loved ones. If we think we live in a world where nothing bad can happen because nothing bad has happened in the past, we’re setting ourselves up for a terrible letdown.

Not all violence is directed at us personally, but we have to be prepared to protect ourselves from some random crazy. He shows a video taken in Toronto, of a man walking around aimlessly and stabbing random people. He tells us to watch closely because the video teaches us some very important lessons about situational awareness, knowing what to do if someone threatens and attacks us with a knife, and then how to take appropriate follow-up actions to protect ourselves.

The attacker in the video has been adjudicated not criminally-responsible because he’s a paranoid schizophrenic off his medication and he’s been institutionalized in the past. He may have been having delusions of stopping people from hurting children. There are four people he attacked that day but only two were caught on video.

The video makes it apparent that random violence happens and we have to be ready for it. We’ve got to be able to stop the first attack because that might give us all the time we need to distract the attacker and get away. Having situational awareness allows us to spot danger from afar. And of course, having first aid skills and equipment is also important. If we do get hurt, we’ll last until we find help or help finds us.
