Welcome to the Shu Ha Ri Do website. Although Shuhari is a Japanese word, Shu Ha Ri Do is influenced by Kung Fu, Muay Thai, Wrestling, Jeet Kune Do and other systems. My title is Sifu however, I could have just as easily been called Shihan. The word Shu Ha Ri describes the stages of learning all the way to mastery. It is sometimes referred to in other disciplines, as Go. Shuhari roughly translates to "to imitate, to create, to master". This site is all about martial arts techniques, inspiring quotes, safety, awareness, and uncommon knowledge regarding self mastery under the Kingdom of Heaven. Interested in training in Shu Ha Ri Do martial arts visit 17842 S Dixie Hwy 33157 Monday and Wednesday 4:30 to 7:00 pm or contact Sifu G. at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have read any of my articles before, you are aware that I like to help people apply what they learn easier. I do so by sharing information with practical concepts and illustrations. With that being said, meditate on this biblical, Warrior Wisdom principle.
You will find that the way to demolish chaos in your life can be found if you just embrace.
You simply must not lead with your heart. You must lead with your mind. However, you must acquire wisdom so that your mind leads your heart well. Once your are wise then you will be more disciplined with your emotions. Wisdom eventually gives you methods for dealing with chaos that can occur in your life. You become, a “master of the situation” a “master of the circumstance. Right now so many people are ruled and tormented by circumstance and situation, and thus they respond to life emotionally. This is why always say, embrace mind over emotion, method over madness. I could share pages, and pages on this topic but I think you get the point. I write about it in my book “Harness the Power Within and Without”. I hope this post has encouraged and enlightened you. Please feel free to share, comment, and subscribe. Godspeed everyone.
A fuse box and a spinal column. What do these two images have in common? Scroll to the info-graphic below for further clarification…
Your spine is basically the fuse box of the body. Your nerves are like electrical wires delivering power to your limbs and so much more throughout the body. Your brain is like a power plant that the spine is connected to. How is you brain empowered? Righteously or un-righteously? Whose house are you???
Greetings everyone. I am creating a new category called the Warrior Wisdom Book Club. I will be posting some of the books that have changed my life, and helped shaped me into the person I am today (of course the Bible is the foundation for me). This book written by Napoleon Hill provides powerful and disturbing insights into the 2nd most dangerous enemy facing mankind (the 1st being ourselves/choices, which is why wisdom is so important). In this book Mr. Hill is conducting an interview where he coerces the devil to be candid with his answers about how he tricks mankind. The book begins with Napoleon telling the devil character that he has become aware of a code by which he can force him to be truthful in his responses.
However, the devil character cautions Napoleon to address him as (wait for it) “Your Majesty”! Though I have respect for my enemy I could only laugh at the audacity! You will see a a side of this enemy that you probably never considered. The questions are answered in such a way that it seems only the devil could answer. When I started reading it I could not put it down, I was amazed by the realness of the answers the character of the devil gave in this book, it just seemed so real, this book will make you think outside of the box. You can also listen to the audio book by clicking here I encourage you to read an actual copy, and listen to the audio in whatever order you choose. Feel free to leave your questions or comments, and we can discuss it.
When it comes down to mastering yourself, and taking control of your life reading, listening, and watching is simply not enough. Application is the teeth of self mastery. The more you apply the knowledge you absorb the more you are able to sink your “teeth” into how to change and overcome. Without application you are deceiving yourself. You must dothe goodness you read, watch, and listen to. Once your absorb righteous information, immediately think of ways to put it into practice.(James 1:22-25)
The above quote should be your approach to self mastery. It will be a long term siege, basically for the rest of your life, waging war against your mind, body, and emotions. Keeping them in check so that the footprints you leave in the lives of others and in the world itself are righteous. Be inspired along the way knowing that such a commitment to this sort of lifestyle will keep the chaos of un-mastered character flaws out of your life. Although Musashi Myamoto did not live a Kingdom of Heaven lifestyle there are things that I take from how he approached his life. This quote is one that I fully embrace.
What am I getting at in this post you ask? Well the title says it all. What kind of tree are you? In the bible Yashuah (Jesus) said a good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. So, what kind of fruit are you baring? What kind of tree are you? What I mean by the statement “THE OAK IS IN THE ACORN” is that the the content within the acorn is the blue print for the oak tree.
Seeing what an acorn can become is pretty amazing. With that being said I must ask you, 3 questions. What is your content? What is your blue print? What will you become? “Becoming” is based on content, which becomes the substance of the blue print of your life. Content can be clarified by this phrase “source of learning”. What is your source of learning, is it based on materialism, partying, drug use, drunkenness, promiscuity, disrespect,
scamming, gossip, infidelity, anger, rage, betrayal, jealousy, envy of others, hatred, arguing, trouble making, bullying etc. Clearly, those things would be considered “bad fruit”, and no good tree bares bad fruit. So again I ask what is your content (type of learning). Are you in an environment that endorses those negative qualities, giving you a pat on the back for living that way? Are you constantly listening to music and watching “programming” that glamorizes those qualities? Meditate on this very carefully and be honest with yourself, when you do you will see clearly the things you must eradicate from your life.
Now, that I have covered that, the next question is, what should you add? Before I tell you allow me to clarify that what I share is not about religion, but relationship, and lifestyle, a Kingdom lifestyle. I do not view the bible religiously I view it as the true and wise blue print for the righteous life that would make God proud of us. Now that I have said that, here is a scripture that I feel covers the topic very well.
1st Corinthians 13:4
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
This my friends is a scripture from the bible highlighting attributes that everyone and their grandmother would say are good qualities to have. These are the things you should add. These things should be your “content”. These things should be a part of your “blue print”. These are qualities that everyone would consider “good fruit“. These are the things we teach little children to aspire to. These are the things that should continue well into adult-hood. It takes wisdom and courage to seek and absorb good sources of learning. So, I ask again, what is your content, what is your blue print, what kind of tree are you?
Hello, everyone. I present to you a metaphor I’ve used hundreds of times in the past to encourage peaceful resolutions when dealing with challenging or difficult people. Those whom you know have character flaws that they have not decided to change, and therefore they cause havoc in the lives of others.
What is the sound of one hand clapping?
The answer I present?
Simply move your “hand” out of the way.
And there will be no “clap” (conflict)
No sound (negative energy).
Let their “hand” (behavior) miss yours
By simply not being available…
