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

Greetings everyone, as you live and learn please understand, that wisdom is not popular. If it was, everyone would be embracing it. The reason wisdom is not popular is because it puts you in a position where you have to change and be better. Many are not ready to change or to be better, because all be it temporary, so many of the things that are unwise feel good to do. Many of us get into things that are not good for us for different reasons life can be hard, as a human myself I have empathy. However, the purpose of the “Warrior Wisdom Blog” is to teach you how not to be a victim of anything or anyone, even yourself…

The title “Walk with the wise and become wise, associate with fools and get in trouble” is a quote from the bible proverbs 13:20. Do not underestimate the impact of associations on your life. 

SMOKING

Some may say “I have my own mind, no one can make me do anything”. This is true no one can “make” you do anything. However, a fool can “make” anything look cool or appropriate to do. For example, take smokingRelated image

the results of smoking on health, are clear and without debate. If anyone is unsure about the effects of inhaling any kind of smoke, tobacco or otherwise, they would only have to ask themselves if their lungs were made for smoke, or what are the beneficial effects of smoke inside of the lungs. However, so many light up and inhale all kinds of smoke daily. One may say the songs didn’t “make” me do it or the movies didn’t “make” me do it. This is true however, many movies and songs are definitely not educating you on why you shouldn’t.

 



 INFIDELITY

Image result for cheater

Or how about infidelity i.e. cheating on your mate? So many movies and songs make that look cool or appropriate to do. However, no parent would endorse their son or daughter being cheated on. No son or daughter would endorse their mother or father being cheated on.

SUMMARY

In closing let me say that here are so many other activities that I plug into this article. However, I encourage you to examine your own life and associations and to determine where there is a lack of wisdom.

Just remember this just because you SMILE when you do it does not make it wise…

Once you see the effects of a lack of wisdom in your life. Once you see the chaos that a lack of wisdom brings to your life, certain actions should cease to be FUN to you. As a result it should become easier for you to get focused on separating yourself from those who are foolish.

SET YOUR “COURSE” WISELY…IF YOU DO NOT CHANGE DIRECTION, YOU MAY END UP WHERE YOU ARE HEADING…14 COURSES YOU SHOULD NOT “SAIL” IN…

Greetings everyone, I present to you another quote by Lao Tse. I will be periodically sharing quotes from him and others that I feel are in concert with my “direction/course” in life. Which is love and loyalty to God his son and the Kingdom of Heaven. However, Lao Tse’s quote “IF YOU DO NOT CHANGE DIRECTION, YOU MAY END UP WHERE YOU ARE HEADING”

Image result for setting sail gif
WHAT WILL YOUR “COURSE” BE?

echoes the message found in scriptures. The question is what “direction” are you headed? It has been said that we are the captain of our souls. A captain can be viewed simplistically as one who “charts a course” or “direction” for a vessel. Once again as captain what is your “direction”? The mission of what I teach is all about not being a victim of anything, even your own self. With that being said WISDOM is incredibly important in this life. For example, one of my slogans in the martial arts is “Wisdom Before Combat”.



I teach all of my students to embrace this mindset because they are learning powerful information from me. With power comes responsibility.

Image result for POWER AND RESPONSIBILITY GIF

Responding to life emotionally, selfishly and recklessly when you are powerful can have catastrophic effects on people you face and especially yourself (keep in mind power to a lesser degree can be described as the ability to act). So, what am I saying here? We all must “know the course” we are headed in and if it is righteous “stay the course”, if it is unrighteous “change the course”. How do you know if a “course” is unrighteous? Most times it is common sense, but for when it is not, we have all heard the quote which has become known as the “golden rule” which is ” do to others as you would have them do to you”. If you view life like this it will become natural for you to:

NOT STEAL
NOT KILL
NOT LIE
NOT CHEAT
NOT BE UNFAITHFUL
NOT GOSSIP
NOT SLANDER
NOT BE DISLOYAL
NOT BE SELFISH
NOT BE RUDE
NOT ENVY
NOT HATE
NOT RAPE
NOT HURT OTHERS IN ANY WAY (UNLESS IN SELF DEFENSE)

 



All of these are “courses” that “head” in certain directions. For example being “unfaithful” to your wife or husband leads to chaos in your household and ultimately divorce. Stealing, robbing, identity theft etc leads to jail or prison time.

THE CAPTAIN, GOING DOWN WITH THE “SHIP”…

Gossip and slander leads to a lack of friends and no one trusting you. Doing the opposite of these things leads you in the opposite “direction”. Now I don’t think I need to elaborate any further on “doing to others” and how it effects the “course” of your life. So, to summarize, as captain of your soul, become a master of yourself and your affect on others.

“Know the course” you are on.  Be honest with yourself and do not make excuses for unrighteous “courses” or try to make them seem right. This provides more insight into what I mean by “self mastery under the Kingdom of Heaven. As captain master yourself “righteously” and your “course” and destination will be righteous.

In Our Backyard: Human Trafficking in America and What We Can Do to Stop It

In recent years, Americans have woken up to the reality that human trafficking is not just something that happens in other countries. But what most still do not understand is that neither is it something that just happens to “other people” such as runaways or the disenfranchised. The human trafficker is no respecter of faith, education, or socioeconomic status, and even kids who are raised in solid families in middle and upper class suburbs can fall victim. Likewise, labor trafficking happens in our cities, neighborhoods, and rural areas.

12 TRAITS EVERY MAN WOMAN AND CHILD SHOULD EMBRACE. THE MISSION OF SHU HA RI DO.



I am writing this article because I want everyone to have a clearer understanding of the mission of Shu Ha Ri Do. If you are a student, subscriber, or follower of this blog or the Shu Ha Ri Do youtube channel then you are already aware that I Sifu G. created Shu Ha Ri Do in 1998. Since then I have published 4 books and a magazine. The articles I publish on this blog are very helpful and thought provoking. However, I felt the need to formally say that my allegiance is to the Kingdom of Heaven, God, and his son Yeshua. However, I do not subscribe to a religious ritualistic view. I subscribe to a moral, truthful, honorable, faithful, bible based lifestyle. I call it a righteous lifestyle, a Kingdom lifestyle. Such a lifestyle that we would encourage our children to embrace. A lifestyle of helping, caring for, and protecting others. A lifestyle of leading by example. So, if you are familiar with the hundreds of articles I have written on this blog you will see this consistent theme. A theme that can be summarized with these types of words.

1.MORALITY

2.TRUTHFULNESS

3.HONOR

4.FAITHFULNESS

5.LOVE

6.WISDOM

7.RESPECTFULNESS

8.DISCIPLINE

9.SELF MASTERY

10.PEACE

11.PROTECTION

12.SAFETY

These words summarize what Shu Ha Ri Do is all about. These words outline the mission. The final words of protection and safety are vital to me. Vital because what good is love without protection, what good is morality without safety. No one should feel the least bit of guilt or hesitation about being prepared to keep safe those who are weak, at risk, or those you love. It is my hope that you are inspired by these types of attributes and find them just as valuable for children and families as I do. It is also my hope that wherever you are, you will be motivated to cultivate these attributes in your life and the lives of those you love. Until next time GODspeed everyone…

Among many other things, Arsenic, Carbon Monoxide, Ammonia, Methanol, Methane, Acetic Acid, Butane, Cadmiun, Stearic Acid, Hexamine, Toluene, and of course Nicotine.

6.DO YOU KNOW WHAT C.O.P.D. IS?

Image result for c.o.p.d. gif

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a lung disease characterized by chronic obstruction of lung airflow that interferes with normal breathing and is not fully reversible. The more familiar terms ‘chronic bronchitis’ and ’emphysema’ are no longer used, but are now included within the COPD diagnosis.

7.ARE YOU PREPARED FOR CANCER?

They say a picture is worth a 1000 words.

8.YOU WOULD NOT ENCOURAGE YOUR CHILDREN TO DO IT

This is a disgusting scene. Anyone would agree that this is unhealthy and unjustifiable for a baby. Clearly it is unhealthy and unjustifiable for adults.

9.WHY PROVOKE YOUR OWN DEATH?

Many people justify smoking with the statement “well you gotta die of something. Well, my first question for someone who says that is, why provoke your own death. The second thing I would say to that person is you may not die, you may live to 95. However, you could be living with, a collapsed lung, no voice box, no teeth, dependent on an oxygen tank or worse. And then you die all be it a slow and painful death but all provoked by you. If you are thinking of smoking please think long about this. If you are already smoking I encourage you to pursue professional services if needed, but by all means don’t take another puff!

5 TEAS TO ADD TO YOU NUTRITION PROGRAM!

 

4 STEPS FOR BUILDING A POWERFUL LEGACY. COMMIT TO THIS PROCESS!

1.PROGRAMMING

When I say programming what I mean is, what you are learning. Remember this, you are always learning something, thus you are always being “programmed”. The question you must ask is who is programming me? You must take back the “creative control” of your mind. You must decide what enters it. Once you are “the programmer” you must choose useful, righteous, powerful, uplifting content. Have you ever heard of “mindless entertainment”? Some form of entertainment is beneficial, but how much of mindless entertainment is a part of your programming. Don’t be idle with your mind choose a righteous, and powerful blueprint for your legacy and install it in your mind.

 



Image result for programming gif
KNOWLEDGE OF GOD IS THE ULTIMATE KNOWLEDGE

2.PASSION

Whatever you are programmed with, you will indeed develop a passion about. You simply must understand this. Passion is powerful, it is what drives you, inspires you, and becomes your ambition. Righteous programming creates righteous passions. With the righteous and powerful blueprint installed in your mind imprint it onto your heart and let the passion for it burn.

Image result for inspiration gif

3.APPLICATION

Passion becomes action, now that you have righteous passions move forward confidently, knowing that your footprint in the world and in the lives of others will have righteous effects! This is the beginning of your legacy!

Image result for action gif



4.REPETITION

After programming this is the most important step. Repetition is vital because with it your  grasp on becoming what you have programmed into yourself will be strong. Picture a blue print for a building. There are many things within a blueprint that are repetitive but very vital. So you must think in this way when you decide to be righteously different. The greatest samurai Musashi Myamoto said this “One thousand days of lessons for discipline, ten thousands days of lessons for mastery”.

Related image
TEN THOUSAND REPETITIONS IS YOUR GOAL

So if you start today and at the end of the month you say “I got this” you are wrong. You are not even disciplined at it! You must adopt the mindset of one thousands “reps” just to become disciplined. Then you pursue ten thousand days for mastery. Thinking this way you will become a powerful person, because knowing that you have not “arrived” will keep you humble. This humility in the face of such a commitment to the “ten thousand repetitions” makes you powerful. I can tell you these things because this has been my life for the last 28 years. I have witnessed the power of this process as I have practiced it for all these years. Commit to the process. This is another illustration of what I mean by “self mastery under the Kingdom of Heaven. If you are serious about learning it read all of my posts, buy the books, download the free stuff. What I share is the epitome of a righteous program. Godspeed everyone.

Self mastery the life long journey, follow the blue print!

2.TRUST YOUR INTUITION

Most of the time if something does not feel right, it isn’t!

Image result for intuition gif

3.BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS

Do not have your head buried in your cell phone when you are walking. Remain aware of your surroundings so that you can detect a “glitch in the matrix”.

4.ALWAYS BE READY TO DEFEND YOURSELF

Invest in pepper spray or a stun gun, and know the zones on the body that you should strike to stop an attacker. You have to develop a side of you that thinks like a predator would. You simply cannot walk around thinking that the world is this big happy place and that it’s your playground. People are victimized daily especially those who think that way. You must be able TOflip the switch and STOP someone from attacking you.

Image result for shuharido gif



 

5.BE WISE WITH SOCIAL MEDIA

Turn off your location settings! If you MUST post personal things make sure it’s view-able by family or close friends only!

Related image

6.DON’T TRUST EASILY

If you suspect something be decisive. If someone approaches you on the street you should feel zero remorse about stopping the conversation when you feel that something is not right. If you think someone is following you
enter the closest building, and tell someone that you think you are being followed. Take not of what the person looks like and the vehicle they are driving so that you can pass this on to the police.

REGARDING EMPLOYMENT OFFERS

Image result for vassar police human trafficking job scam

7.GET CREDIBLE ADVICE

If you are offered what seems like an exciting job opportunity locally or in another country, it is imperative that you ask several questions, and get a lot of advice from friends, family, lawyers and professionals in a related field.

8.VAGUE INFORMATION ABOUT THE JOB

If you are give no further information about the company or job after you call, then you should take that as a confirmation of a scam. Overall be wary want ads, street signs, internet employment offers that sound too good to be true.

9.RECRUITING TACTICS

Also be wary when someone recruits you via social media. Never, accept advice, opportunities, or money from someone recruiting you via social media.

ADD THIS TO YOUR HEALTH TOOL BOX! REFLEXOLOGY CHARTS FOR HANDS AND FEET. STUDY THIS!

You must arm yourself with specific knowledge about the body God gave you! It is simply not enough to just say I have faith. You must also combine what you believe with action, knowing “what” to do is vital. Just believing you are a martial artist but never practicing is delusional. This mindset is universal, if you want health, it is not enough to simply believe you are healthy and go eat a whole cheese cake and drink a two liter.

Action is important. So you must learn everything you can about increasing your health through diet, exercise, things like teas, and other supplements. The charts below should be viewed as tools to add to your “health tool box”. Some, shun this type of information, or, are cynical, well hopefully at some point they will become more hungry for knowledge. So with that being said I encourage you to familiarize yourself with how reflexology effects every part, organ, and organ system of the body. You DO NOT have to embrace helplessness, you can educate yourself and become more proactive about your health from a lesser known angle. Internalize the images below.

HOW TO PROTECT AND BUILD YOUR SPIRIT. GODLY KNOWLEDGE IS VITAL!!!

WISDOM FROM MY BOOK “HARNESS THE POWER WITHIN AND WITHOUT”

In my book Harness the Power Within and Without. I share practical tips for living a righteous lifestyle, how to build your mind, body, and spirit under the Kingdom of Heaven. In this article I share an excerpt from my book regarding how to build the spirit. This is what has helped me develop a very powerful spirit based on righteous/Godly knowledge. I am certain it will help you as well.

THE SPIRIT

The spirit is the part of us that desires morality, values, and longs to do the right thing.  Depending on what you allow in your mind your spirit can be overrun by negative external influences if you are not careful you can become desensitized.  When this happens positive inspiration of which God is the origin diminishes and you become even more enticed by negative superficial, man made influences.  Being influenced by man made things is not all bad.  However there are many man made influences that can be considered self destructive evidenced by the results produced.

 



  • Drug use results in jail time, and addiction.  Image result for drug addict gif
  • Excessive partying and drunkenness, results in, Alcoholism, DUI’s, vehicular manslaughter, and jail time. Image result for drunk gif
  • Marital infidelity or the so called “being a player” results in, divorce, domestic violence, kids suffering etc.Image result for infidelity gif

this is just a small example of the negative man made influences of our society. People fall into the previous situations because drug use, drunkenness, and marital infidelity or immorality, are just some of the many things that get glamorized by TV shows, pick one of the many;

  • movies,
  • songs,
  • videos
  • events like spring break
  • happy hour
  • and the night life environment




As a result of the glamour people are inspired by these things.  What’s worse is a life style based solely on this negative inspiration soon develops an intense appetite for it and loses the ability to tell the difference between negative and positive.  People develop reasons or justifications for why they are inspired by these things.  In the minds of people like this bad becomes good too.  Here is the trap remember a paragraph ago I mentioned man made influences like movies, music, etc.  Well people in the lime light who shun responsibility for their actions, by saying they are not mentors or role models, or saying there is nothing wrong with their behavior, the same wittingly or unwittingly help glamorize negative inspiration.  As stated before all man made influences are not bad, however, doesn’t it seem like society as a whole gravitates toward negative inspirationImage result for society celebrating evil gifThe lesson here is to protect the inside.  Inside of you is what is most powerful and most importantly what’s most vulnerable.  In the Shu Ha Ri Do symbol I use fire to symbolize the spirit with good reason because when you feed a fire it becomes an inferno.  Would you want a fire that burns inside you for the wrong things?  That’s the vulnerability of our spirit it’s synonymous with passion, desire, and drive, you must take care not to be driven by the wrong things.  To harness the power of the spirit you must take a spiritual inventory through meditation and introspection or contemplation. I have mentioned choosing or filtering what goes through the eyes and ears in other articles.  Well the eyes are without a doubt the windows to the soul or spirit and how do most thieves enter houses?

Yes, through the window. To be specific this thief is seeking to steal control over what fuels or inspires you, what you love, hate, your ambitions, or drives.  So our goal regarding the spirit should be to control methods of entry which would be what you hear & see.  Moreover, when you must hear or see something, like when watching a movie, or when with associates or co-workers, or simply because we live in this world.  You must filter out the impurities through meditation and introspection, meditating on or contemplating the positive knowledge and godly concepts you’ve read seen

or heard. You can view this as a spiritual inventory making sure the foundation of positive knowledge that you have worked so hard to establish is not being worn away.  Meditation and introspection help you remember that there is such a thing as morality, ethics, and godliness.  As human beings we are not just creatures of instinct or habit, we can cognitively harness and channel the powers of all three plains of our existence into predetermined goals.  We as human beings must remember that external influences i.e. the thief is seeking to harness those same powers that we possess so as to channel those powers into their predetermined goals.  Remember also, that your spirit is the most vulnerable part of your existence it is also the most powerful part of your existence.  It is the power within that’s stirred by thought, of which thought is stirred by what you see & hear.  Ask yourself what am I building within.  Develop the courage to look within and tell the truth about who you are, do not justify.  Do not rationalize if it means facing the reality that you are in worse shape spiritually than you ever thought, do it.  Be introspective take daily spiritual inventory.  Take courage and the sword of the spirit (a) and go within.
