GUARD YOUR PASSIONS!

Guard your passions

Hello everyone, in this post I would like to focus your attention on your passions. What are they?  What sparks a passion?  There are many things in life that can spark a passion. We must all be mindful that those sparks create positive, wise, Godly and righteous passions. Below is a poem from my book, “The Book of Hai Clue” in this poem I shed light on how music and media can be used in a way that sparks negative passions.  This is especially important for children, but adults should also remain alert to the power of music .

“Guard Your Passions”

Give it a nice rhythmic beat

And they’ll surely not see the deceit

Provide a nice tune

Or conceal destructive concepts in movies and cartoons

And they’ll consider it harmless all too soon.

Stir the passions through media and song

And before to long

Passion blinds rationale

Right or wrong.

THE PHILOSOPHY OF EXPLOSION IN SHU HA RI DO…

A big part of Shu Ha Ri Do training is found within the speed and explosion of techniques. I show a small portion of the science behind what I mean in the  video below.

BEWARE OF THE WEB WEAVER

Can you see better than a fly?

Meditate for a second on the incredible vision of a fly. 

A fly’s eye is made up  of what are called ommatidia

which are basically photo receptors that provide the fly with visual information about it’s environment. The average fly has more than 3300 ommatidia. Each ommatidia is like an eye unto itself. So in summary, what a fly sees is reproduced more than 3300 times. A fly’s vision is incredible.  So, here’s the question, if the fly could see the spiders web 

would he still get caught in it? With all that eye power why didn’t it see the web? Perhaps, the answer is because the spider is good at what he does. 

What are the webs woven around your life?

Can you see them at all?

Realize that the “spider” is good at what he does.

 If you ever were caught, and freed yourself from the “web” would you fly in that direction again? If so what could possibly entice you to continue the same self destructive flight pattern? What could be worth entrapping yourself again? If you did happen to free yourself be aware that you only barely escaped the web weaver. 

One mindset you must adopt in order to embrace the Shu Ha Ri Do Warrior’s Code is to learn how not to victimize your own self.

A CARTOON ILLUSTRATION OF SHU HA RI DO PHILOSOPHY AND TRAINING

            REFLECTIONS OF THE “DO”

Shu Ha Ri Do, born in 1998 has had an impact on the lives of many. I am very grateful to God for inspiring me to make the most of the talents that he gave me at birth. It is my goal to inspire others to do the same, use the most of their God given talents to inspire others to live a righteous life, that would make him proud.  In Shu Ha Ri Do, physical training plays a big part in  helping one live a righteous life. The movements in Shu Ha Ri Do and many martial arts forge discipline within the mind and body. However, a spiritual/internal Code must compliment the physical and mental. In Shu Ha Ri Do, that Code is everything, without it you have physical movements only. The Shu Ha Ri Do Code consists of biblical principles of honor, love, loyalty, faithfulness, righteous thoughts, emotions, actions, and wisdom before combat. With that being said, below I present to you moments in time with “Reflections of the “DO”.

FOCUSED GROUP

Before training we meditate however, we do not empty our minds. I teach my students to focus on a goal of their training or pray.

SAFETY IN SCHOOLS…

THE ISSUE OF SAFETY IN OUR SCHOOLS…

SCHOOL SHOOTER NICHOLAS CRUZ

In the wake of the latest school shooting are left many grieving families, of

which I send my heart felt condolences. Truly, we live in a world where it is

hard to identify real threats, separate fact from fiction, or genuineness,

from agenda. So as we examine how this happened, why this happened, will

it happen again, and how we “act” after a “crisis” I propose embracing and

teaching as much wisdom to our children as possible.  Clearly, schools are

becoming a place of  high anxiety for children and parents.  I write this

today as an encouragement to all parents, that we are not powerless in this.

We have options. Perhaps home schooling for some, or private schools for

those who are capable. For so many of us neither of those are options.

What’s left?

Collective wisdom among students. Household to household I encourage

every parent to launch a focused campaign to teach their children even

better interpersonal skills, how to watch for signs of mental or emotional

distress among their fellow students, never to bully, or verbally abuse

classmates, and to advise teachers, counselors, and  principals, when they

observe any of those things. It is unfortunate that this has become the

climate. However,

adjustments must be made, and a big part of my philosophy is the

best way to deal with anxiety is to attack what you have control over.

Teaching and preparing our children is something we always have control

over.  I have written a tremendous amount about this subject in my book

THE AWARENESS FORMULA

I encourage everyone to get a copy of this book not just because I wrote it

but because what’s in it is information I have used to keep my family,

friends, and students safe.  My philosophy is unique, filled with profound

truths. To see several examples of this simply browse my post archives.

There is so much vital information in this book dealing with safety on every

level, work, home, vacationing, social media  and so much that will surprise

you because you have never considered it… Thanks for reading I pray for

safety and security for you  and your family.


	

ARE YOU AS SMART AS AN INSECT? OR SMARTER?

 WISDOM FROM THE BOOK OF HAI/CLUE

AN ANALOGY OF MAN’S “INFINITE” WISDOM

Imagine an insect, with all its

complexity and culture

asking another insect,

what it knows about the most

basic aspect of human culture,

like work, shopping,

marriage, and agri

culture.

Now imagine this insect explaining it‘s answer,

Stating how humans do not exist…

How, humans are just made up tales

Further explaining the reason why

their forest homes disappear

is because all forests

eventually evolve into square rock like structures.

The Book of Hai Clue is for the conscious mind. A mind seeking truth, it is not a one time read! There are so many hidden truths woven into each poem. Can you solve the riddles and rhymes of The Book of Hai Clue

BEWARE OF THE “WEB WEAVER”

FOR CHILDREN, AND FAMILIES AWARENESS IS VITAL

FOR CHILDREN, AND FAMILIES AWARENESS IS VITAL…

I Wrote “The Awareness Formula” in the late 90’s but did not publish it  until 2006. What I wrote was incredibly important then and even more  important now. I care deeply for the children and families who have been hurt by, abductions, molestation, rapes, school shootings, home invasions, robberies, cyber crimes and so much more. Indeed we have all been affected directly or indirectly. Even I have personally been hurt by some of the things I mentioned as a child, also as an adult. My retaliation has been to play a major role in protecting, and promoting healing in the lives of many who

have been victimized. It is for this reason that I teach, write, and speak. The Awareness Formula is not just a book but a course that I teach in schools, and communities I am currently pursuing forward college with my syllabus.
