Ever wonder why nature stirs our spirits so profoundly?

Hello everyone in this post I have included an excerpt from my book “Harness the Power Within and Without” regarding how to build the spirit. At the bottom of the page I also included a video from a day I spent at the beach detoxing and building my spirit, connecting with God in the natural.

The spirit is represented by fire in the Shu Ha Ri Do symbol it is the largest part of the symbol as it is the largest part of us.  The spirit what is it?  And how can we build it? Your spirit is what fuels you it’s the passion, it’s the inspiration, you feel every time you see;

  • watch a sunset
  • walk through a forest
  • see a waterfall
  • watch the clouds etc

being so stirred in our spirits by creation is no coincidence.   Nature inspires us and the word inspire is derived from the word spirit.  This connection to the natural energizes, or recharges us. This is why people say they need to get away or go on vacation.  They go;

  • camping in a forest
  • hiking up a mountain
  • swimming at the beach
  • sailing
  • or nature walks in the park

this is the epitome of positive inspiration.  Meditation and introspection are most effective at these times.  It is during these times that people also have moments of clarity, or epiphanies, what’s true right and best become clear just like Moses on Mount Sinai.  If we agree on who is responsible for nature then we know who is speaking to us during those moments of clarity.

Just a little food for thought to encourage everyone to see the design, and intent in the details of this life we live. I hope you found my post useful and inspiring!

Swords of the East!

Never speaking, “they” have taught many that have “let” them lead.

An excerpt from my book, “The Book of Hai Clue” please share your thoughts on this poetic nugget.

Never speaking they have taught many that have let them lead.

The noisy one Should only make noise with the counsel of the silent ones, or shall I say the silent two.

Repeated heeding of their counsel makes one enlightened, not frightened, awareness level only heightened.

Reality from enlightenment and awareness delivered by the twins, never speaking they have taught many who have let them lead.

Many though, resort to the quick fix, the instantaneous gratification of the noisy one.

The noisy one thrives on zeal without knowledge fervor without counsel.

Who is this noisy one?

Well he is known in most circles as the mouth, some call him tongue, Saying of him that he’s “quick at himself”

And these counselors these silent twins

Who are they?

They have been humbly known as Ears Image result for ear

What is there primary message? Enlightenment + Awareness=Reality = EAR.

Black Seed Oil!

I just want to encourage everyone to try a health supplement called black seed oil, it has been said to “cure everything but death! Well, the last part of the sentence is probably and overstatement. However, it is an antifungal, antiviral, antibacterial, it nearly cures high blood pressure, and diabetes it kill cancer cells by 80% it is amazing I’ve started taking it daily. For more information on black seed oil watch this video.

Self Mastery is a process…




Some of what we must consider when it comes to self mastery is, how do we learn? What are the results of thoughts? What are the results of actions?
Well, the process for self mastery goes like this. What you read, listen to, watch, or take part in continually will become your thoughts, or what you think about doing. Your thoughts will become what you feel, what your passions are, what your ambitions are, and are driven by. Your passions will become your actions, believe it! Now, here is where it gets even more serious. Your actions will become your habits, your habits will become your character, and your character will become your destiny, where you arrive. Becoming is not a coincidence, it is a process. Learn how we become who we are and master the process. My motivation for self mastery is to represent the Kingdom of Heaven on the Earth as best I can. Applying and teaching wisdom and fighting the good fight.
