MASTERING OTHERS IS STRENGTH. MASTERING YOURSELF IS TRUE POWER. 3 REASONS WHY THIS IS TRUE…

Greetings everyone, I present you with another wise quote from Lao Tse. This is a big part of what I have to share with students and readers of my work.  Below I will list 3 reasons why this is true.

1.DON’T FORCE OR MANIPULATE ANYONE

When dealing with people, trying to get them to love, respect, or fear you by force or manipulation can work but will prove to be an egotistical and exhausting way to live. Egotistical because your motives are impure and self centered.

Exhausting because you will find yourself always reacting to someone else’s character flaws and trying to prove that you are worthy to be loved, respected, or feared. Moreover, if someone has to fear you in order not to violate or in order to accept you then they are not worthy of you in the first place. In addition, if you have to resort to manipulation to get love or respect, then you are practicing an unrighteous “action” and that is not anything to be honored or saluted anyway.



2.BE INSPIRED BY THE POWER OF CONTROLLING YOUR OWN ACTIONS

Be motivated by your ability to influence a person righteously, by embracing action, or no action. For example, if you have righteous influence over a person then take action. If you don’t and a person does not see you like you want them to, do not resort to trying to force it with negative emotion, or manipulation. Take no action and waste no more thought on it. once you are focused on your own action or no action you will soon realize that your power is not based on anyone elses action or no action. Focusing on your output or actions empowers you!

I speak from experience, nothing has empowered me more personally then “choosing” when to act or not act based on a righteous blueprint not from emotion or a desire to control another. Most times I choose no action. Being able to control or influence someone righteously shows strength. However, my focus has over the decades been about becoming powerful by controlling my output/actions and as a result many have imitated my example and have also become powerful people.



3.REPEAT REPEAT REPEAT

Now, once you see and learn the pattern you must then focus on repetition. The more moment by moment and daily repetitions you get the

more mastery you will gain over yourself and the more powerful you will become. Trying to control others will become less and less of a factor in how you operate. Your focus will instead be more on controlling yourself, and being righteous and wise in all situations regardless of what someone else thinks or does. After years and years of repetition of what I am telling you, you will see clearly the power of a life built on this biblical blueprint. You will have built a legacy of “moments of self control” or “moments of self mastery” that commands love, respect, or fear for the un-elevated .

Thanks for reading I write more about these concepts in my book Harness the Power Within and Without. It is my hope that I have inspired you today, until next time Godspeed in your quest for self mastery under the Kingdom of Heaven.

THINK, FEEL, DO, AND BECOME! MASTER THE METHOD OF BECOMING, FOLLOW THESE STEPS!

There is a process to becoming. YOU CAN CHANGE! You can become the righteous person that God wants you to be. There is a process to “becoming”. It is not a “magical” thing where all of a sudden you just change every character flaw you ever had. You must learn yourself, what your patterns, triggers, and temptations are. Then, you “program” yourself with the opposite.

ONE OF MY BOOKS, PART OF HOW I ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO LIVE LIVES THAT PLEASE OUR CREATOR.

 



If you desire to become more patient, kind, loving, humble, faithful, loyal, unselfish (all things which the bible calls fruits of the spirit Galations 5:22) then reprogram your mind with these things. Just know you MUST TRAIN!  REPETITIVELY! Remembering the principle of “thousands of repetitions” not tens or hundreds. Becoming masterful at something takes at least ten thousand repetitions so know from the start that walking this path is for the rest of your life! So, THINK, FEEL, DO CAN BE SUMMARIZE LIKE THIS:

 As you see, read, or hear, so you think.

 As you think, so you feel.

 As you feel, so you do.

As you do, so you become.

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.

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.

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!

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”.

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.

TWO WAYS TO DEMOLISH CHAOS. A WARRIOR WISDOM CONCEPT.

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.

1.                                    2.

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.

INSPIRING SHU HA RI DO TRAINING VIDEO



Just a little 1 minute clip of segments from a Shu Ha Ri Do training day with inspiring music in the background. The lyrics are “every single day, I’m gonna make something great, that’s my way”. Indeed it has been my way for the last 28 years striving to live a lifestyle worthy of following. A Kingdom lifestyle. All of my passion for learning and sharing righteous knowledge culminating in the creation of Shu Ha Ri Do in 1998. Talk radio shows, speaking engagements, 4 books, and over 700 students since that time. So, once again my focus was and still is to create something great everyday. Even if it’s a small ripple of goodness in the life of someone else I’ll accept it!

WHY KHABIB AND HIS CAMP WERE SO ANGRY AT CONOR McGREGOR. THE TRUTH!!!

Khabib has threatened to leave the UFC unless the apparent double standard stops. Obviously, I do not condone wreckless acts, however, in this video the You-tube channel host @joeingram1 investigates what has been missed by many about Conor’s behavior. There is more to the story, things are not what they seem. As you watch this video, think of everything that I teach and write about in reference to Shu Ha Ri Do. Think of the title of this blog “WARRIOR WISDOM”.



 It is my view that all warriors should live by a code, that includes among other things honor, integrity, humility, and wisdom. Having a code is important because as warriors we are trained in combat strategies so as my slogan states “Wisdom Before Combat” is very important.

THE “OAK” IS IN THE ACORN. A GOOD TREE CANNOT BEAR BAD FRUIT. WHAT KIND OF TREE ARE YOU?

 THE OAK IS IN THE ACORN!

tree nature branch blossom plant photography fruit leaf flower food green produce insect botany flora fauna acorn close up shrub bud macro photography flowering plant woody plant land plant

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  

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 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?

A METAPHOR FOR DEALING WITH DIFFICULT PEOPLE. WHAT IS THE SOUND OF ONE HAND CLAPPING?

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?

No sound.

Image result for missed high five gif

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…
