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.

A VERY POWERFUL ILLUSTRATION OF WHAT SELF MASTERY UNDER THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN MEANS!

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

 

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,

Image result for criminal

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?

7 STEPS FOR MAINTAINING A PROPER VIEW OF RIGHT AND WRONG…

LIFE BY A RIGHTEOUS CODE IS EVERYTHING…

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…

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.


	

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

More on self mastery from my book “Harness the Power Within and Without”.

The Mind

As you have just read the body is truly a marvelous machine however, like the influence the wind has on water so the mind has a similar affect on the body. Without wind bodies of water would not move they would not have a stimulus. We have all seen ponds that are still having no current.  Well the mind causes the current within the body.  Just as the mind causes the current that flows thru the body that current could very well be a violent or

uncomfortable current.  For example when faced with a difficult situation some have established a modus operandi of doubtful negative, thinking and thus react with;

  • nervousness
  • anger
  • despair
  • hopelessness etc.

now what are the tell tale signs of these emotions. How they make you feel physically right like;

  • cramps
  • indigestion

  • headaches
  • sweating
  • or rapid heart rate

remember what caused it all… the way you think.  Now, nervousness, anger, and the like are all natural responses to stress.  However you must not allow this to become a habit.  You must dedicate yourself to positive thinking, reinforced by positive learning and other positive influences.  The breathing technique I outlined for you is an example of positive knowledge; retrain yourself by using it to establish new stress response patterns.  What you know is not power until you use it and the type of knowledge is a critical issue.  In chapter 1 the mind is outlined as the part of the brain that deals with thought. The mind is also represented by a burst of light in the Shu Ha Ri Legacy symbol. Your positively empowered mind can light the path for the right way to “think feel & do” commit this to memory.  On the other hand a negatively empowered mind does just the opposite.  You can say that ignorance is bliss however what you don’t know or choose not to know can hurt you. You see we become victims of our minds by repeating the same response patterns.  When this happens you also become victims of circumstance.  Due to a circumstance or situation, that arises in your life you react the way you’ve trained yourself to react.  Only afterwards do you think to yourself I wish I would have…  If you harness the power of your mind you will be able to harness the power of circumstance.  A wise person once said life is 10% what happens to you and 90% your response or reaction to what happens to you. One of the major points I am trying to convey in this section is for readers to recognize that the power of the mind lies not in events, circumstances, situations etc. rather in our thoughts and choices.   So harnessing the power of the mind begins with positive thinking which is developed by positive learning/influences and recognizing the power of choice.  Previously I used an analogy describing the wind affecting water in a similar way the mind affects the body.  Water however, simply reacts to a stimulus we on the other hand can choose our actions there in lies the power given to us at creation…. choice.  I previously mentioned an empowered mind lighting the path, well let’s break down the analogy of light.  If your mind has not been empowered positively, or if you routinely allow negative circumstances, or situations to become your primary focus then these circumstances or situations can accurately be described as dark for you.  During these times the solution is obscure to you, during seemingly dark times our minds can keep us in the dark or as stated before light the path out.  The kind of knowledge we have acquired negative/dark or positive/light determines whether we are kept in the dark or brought into the light.  Negative knowledge seen as valuable to many in society is;

  • sexual immorality
  • manipulation techniques
  • being a clever cheat
  • showing no remorse
  • telling half truths, etc.

  • rage
  • slander
  • gossip

Examples of Positive knowledge is how to develop

  • good ethics
  • morals
  • values
  • innocence
  • honor
  • respect
  • courage
  • patience
  • love
  • faith
  • hope
  • trust

need I go on which list will you build your life, or the life of your children on.   When faced with dark or any other times which foundation would be more beneficial cheating ,or honor, manipulation, or respect, immorality, or morality, rage or patience, the choice is yours.  If you want your mind to light the way for your journey positively, then positive knowledge is essential.  We acquire knowledge primarily through what we see read and hear.  Some sources are;

  • TV
  • movies
  • books
  • radio
  • song lyrics
  • talk shows
  • family
  • friends
  • and environment

Do not underestimate the power and influence these things have on your mind.  Your mind is much like a computer.  Computers do what they are programmed to do.  So… who’s programming you? The major difference between humans and computers, like humans and water, though is choice.  So I say again take back the power of your mind by choosing or filtering carefully what goes through the eyes and ears.  For these very things become the thoughts which once they marinate with your vulnerable inner person or spirit will become your feelings, your passions, what inspires you.   Now just as the mind steers you, and lights the path, your feelings fuel you love, anger. passion, hate, these are internal matters which leads me to the spirit.

Never speaking, “they” have taught many that have “let” them lead.

An excerpt from my book, “The Book of Hai Clue” please share your thoughts on this poetic nugget.

Never speaking they have taught many that have let them lead.

The noisy one Should only make noise with the counsel of the silent ones, or shall I say the silent two.

Repeated heeding of their counsel makes one enlightened, not frightened, awareness level only heightened.

Reality from enlightenment and awareness delivered by the twins, never speaking they have taught many who have let them lead.

Many though, resort to the quick fix, the instantaneous gratification of the noisy one.

The noisy one thrives on zeal without knowledge fervor without counsel.

Who is this noisy one?

Well he is known in most circles as the mouth, some call him tongue, Saying of him that he’s “quick at himself”

And these counselors these silent twins

Who are they?

They have been humbly known as Ears Image result for ear

What is there primary message? Enlightenment + Awareness=Reality = EAR.
