ASIAN LO FI HIP HOP INSTRUMENTALS… MUSIC WITH A RIGHTEOUS VIBE…

Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by today! I present to you a play list of music with a righteous vibe. These tracks have a cool Asian, hip hop, vibe to them that I simply love. Like the recent post I made about “chill step”, these tracks are similar but feel more like someone would be practicing Kung Fu while listening to them. As one who basically does not listen to F.M. radio due to it’s mostly unrighteous vibe. It pleases me to choose music that represents how I live and values that are important to me. I hope you enjoy this playlist, and as always Godspeed in your quest for wisdom.

YOU ARE THE CAPTAIN OF YOUR SOUL…SMOOTH SEAS DO NOT MAKE SKILLFUL SAILORS…

Hello everyone, I hope you have all been doing well, and feeling inspired and powerful. I present to you today a simple African proverb,

“SMOOTH SEAS DO NOT MAKE SKILLFUL SAILORS”.

In life we have all faced what can be described as “rough seas”. It is how you view those situations that determine how you handle them. If you VIEW them as hopeless, destructive, or back breaking, then you will have little to no determination, drive, or energy, to find answers and fight your way through.

Moving forward because you chose a hopeless VIEW, you will indeed HANDLE those times hopelessly, and those times will become destructive and back breaking for you.

Image result for injured emoji gif

To change the way you handle life you must change your VIEW. Always look at rough seas as training moments, any training a person goes through helps them to acquire skills. Look at it this way, you do not have to go through the “rough seas” blindly and thus haphazardly acquire the skills in question.

You can seek knowledge on just about any “rough sea” you could ever face. In the 90’s I spent hours upon hours in libraries and book stores 3 or four times a week for years with 20 to 30 books on the table absorbing knowledge. Nowadays, Google, or YouTube has tons of “how to’s”, there is simply no reason for hopelessness, especially with prayers. Keep in mind also that these are lessons anyone would want their child to know, so why not foster such knowledge in your own life?

So, in summary VIEW  the “rough seas” as making you a skillful sailor, after all you ARE the captain of your soul…

IS WHAT HAPPENED FORTUNATE? IS IT UNFORTUNATE? MAYBE…PONDER THIS WISDOM…

 Greetings fellow wisdom seekers. As always it is my hope that today’s post finds you healthy, wealthy, wise, and powerful. It is also my hope that today’s post will make you even wiser. Below is a short story about a Chinese farmer written by Alan Watts.

The story goes like this:



Once upon a time there was a Chinese farmer, who lost a horse. It ran away. And all the neighbors came around that evening and said, “That’s too bad.” And he said, “Maybe.”

Image result for WHITE HORSE RUNNING GIF

The next day the horse came back, bringing seven wild horses with it. And all the neighbors came around and said, “Oh, that’s great isn’t it?” And he said, “Maybe.”

Image result for 8 HORSES IN A STABLE GIF

The next day his son was attempting to tame one of these horses and ride it. He was thrown and broke his leg. And all the neighbors came around in the evening and said, “Oh, dear that’s too bad.” And the farmer said, “Maybe.” 

The following day the conscription officers came around looking for people to recruit into the army and they rejected his son, because he had a broken leg. And all the people came around and said, “Well that’s great isn’t it?” And he said, “Maybe.” 



 Many times in my posts I provide an in depth illustration of what’s presented. However, I find that the lesson in this story shines through with surgical precision. I could summarize it like this however, in life remain poised, hold your “horses/emotions” (when things happen) and never get ahead of them. Always take note and learn from everything good or bad, knowing that there is always more than meets the eye. Sometimes what we see our don’t see may just be a matter of limited perception…

IF YOU‘RE FOCUSED ON THE FINGER, YOU HAVE MISSED THE POINT



IF YOU’RE FOCUSED ON THE FINGER, YOU HAVE MISSED THE “POINT”…

Hello everyone, it is my hope that all of you are feeling empowered, and encouraged as you walk the path. I want you to think about something. It involves what this blog is all about, and that is wisdom. Wisdom many times is not popular. Wisdom is many times hiding in plain sight but people cannot see “the forest because of the trees” or the sky because of the blue.

I can tell you in my 21 years (actually 31 due to my time teaching biblical wisdom before I created Shu Ha Ri Do) I have noticed a sad truth, and that is that so many think they are wise but are missing the “point”. Becoming wise takes a commitment to humility and a intense determination to master yourself. Not just mastering yourself for your own gratification, but to be a powerful influence in the lives of the weak, downtrodden, oppressed, and those led astray.



So what is the summary? Do not focus on the hand teaching, don’t become so impressed by your own hand doing. Focus only on the wisdom that will build the righteous legacy that you would want your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews to benefit from. Such a legacy will shine like a beacon in a world where wisdom is being hidden, covered up, ostracized, and considered “uncool”. Join me in upholding the wisdom builds righteous households, neighborhoods, towns, and cities. Support the Shu Ha Ri Do Warrior Wisdom Blog, subscribe, like, share and if you really like the vibe buy a shirt! Until next time everyone Godspeed in your quest.




WALK WITH THE WISE AND BECOME WISE. ASSOCIATE WITH FOOLS AND GET IN TROUBLE. A MESSAGE FOR ALL, ESPECIALLY THE YOUNG.

“TAI” AND “SHEN” SISOOKS SHOW EXCELLENT SHU HA RI DO FORM IN THEIR BLUE BELT TESTS…

Greetings everyone, peace and blessing to you. Below I am sharing two video clips of two of my advanced students testing for their blue belts. For those who are unaware Shu Ha Ri Do has 7 phases, blue belt is the 4th phase. These two students show excellent form for the level that they are at, of course I will only expect for that level to continue to “elevate”. I know it will.

Hello everyone, it is with pleasure that I share with you two short films of my students performing at the July 2019 Bas I Kyokushin tournament of which two 4 of them won 2nd place. In Kyokushin style tournaments there are no punches to the face or head but to the body only, however, kicks to the head are allowed. Now, I know some of you are thinking what? Well, the logic is that a kick to the head is harder to land. The littlest student you see

THE BEST LO-FI, JAZZ HIP HOP, INSTRUMENTALS TO MEDITATE, STRETCH, STUDY, OR NAP TO. YOU WILL SIMPLY LOVE THESE BEATS!

Greetings everyone, I excited to share with you a playlist from my collection. This is definitely music with a righteous vibe, I used this music for everything, meditation, reading, working out, date night…everything! I simply love this music, it’s put together by a creator known as Jinsang on youtube. I am so grateful for his creativity. He combines jazz, hip hop, R&B, with a very familiar old school vibe, which I truly appreciate in a world where music has gotten more and more negative. This list I put together features his top songs in my opinion, enjoy!
