YOU ARE THE CAPTAIN OF YOUR SOUL…SMOOTH SEAS DO NOT MAKE SKILLFUL SAILORS…

Hello everyone, I hope you have all been doing well, and feeling inspired and powerful. I present to you today a simple African proverb,

“SMOOTH SEAS DO NOT MAKE SKILLFUL SAILORS”.

In life we have all faced what can be described as “rough seas”. It is how you view those situations that determine how you handle them. If you VIEW them as hopeless, destructive, or back breaking, then you will have little to no determination, drive, or energy, to find answers and fight your way through.

Image result for depressed energy emoji gif



Moving forward because you chose a hopeless VIEW, you will indeed HANDLE those times hopelessly, and those times will become destructive and back breaking for you.

Image result for injured emoji gif

To change the way you handle life you must change your VIEW. Always look at rough seas as training moments, any training a person goes through helps them to acquire skills. Look at it this way, you do not have to go through the “rough seas” blindly and thus haphazardly acquire the skills in question.

You can seek knowledge on just about any “rough sea” you could ever face. In the 90’s I spent hours upon hours in libraries and book stores 3 or four times a week for years with 20 to 30 books on the table absorbing knowledge. Nowadays, Google, or YouTube has tons of “how to’s”, there is simply no reason for hopelessness, especially with prayers. Keep in mind also that these are lessons anyone would want their child to know, so why not foster such knowledge in your own life?

So, in summary VIEW  the “rough seas” as making you a skillful sailor, after all you ARE the captain of your soul…

LIFE IS A BATTLE, BUT BE INSPIRED, BUILD YOURSELF, USE THE BEST BUILDING MATERIAL, CHOOSE THE #1 ALLY AND YOU WILL WIN.

 

RESPOND WISELY, EVEN WHEN YOU ARE TREATED UNWISELY. THE 3 MAIN AREAS TO APPLY THIS. THE 3RD IS THE HARDEST.

Greetings everyone, it is my prayer that my post finds everyone motivated and inspired on the path to self mastery, the life long journey. Today I bring you a thought which I will illustrate and summarize. The thought is simply, “Respond wisely, even when you are treated unwisely”. Let me tell you from experience that this will be one of the continuous challenges of your life. The wiser you become, the better you will treat people, however, the wiser you become it will seem like some people treat you worse. It is a conundrum I have noticed. You will find that you will have to grow in your humility, and patience as you will find yourself pardoning others often. Don’t be discouraged, this is the path of self mastery, this is the true “Warriors Path”.  And now for the 3 areas…

WITH STRANGERS OR PEOPLE WHOM YOU HAVE NO CONTINUOUS ASSOCIATION

Image result for bad customer service
I WOULD NOT SUGGEST LEAVING A MESSAGE IN KETCHUP, BUT YOU GET THE IDEA…



These are people whom you see randomly like a mail lady, cashier, neighbor, business owners, etc. Please understand that these people are not in your circle. They should be no where near your heart so their unwise treatment should not matter as much. If they annoy you, you can go to another restaurant or store. You also do not have to respond, silence is a great source of strength. You have no obligation to maintain a dialogue with them. So you can “unplug” their negative unwise energy with silence.

WITH CO-WORKERS

Image result for negative co worker gif
THE BOSS FROM THE HILARIOUS MOVE “OFFICE SPACE”

Now here is where we take a step closer to the heart. Now my advice is to protect your heart by maintaining a certain level of separation when it comes to work. How you can you protect your heart simply by being professional and objective. Am I saying that you should show no feelings? Absolutely not. However, as we all know some co-workers can treat you very unwisely. So you must maintain a high level of professionalism. At work you will many times find yourself in awkward positions where you feel forced to interact with a co-worker who treats you unwisely. At those times remain focused on the objectives and let the objectives be your common ground just throw your energy into getting the job done and dominating your work. Again remember that “silence is a great source of strength” you can also “unplug” the negative unwise energy of a co-worker with being silent whenever they attempt to treat you unwisely. If the treatment continues and they leave you know choice, you can go to the next level and get management involved. However, utilize silence repetitiously before you do and watch your wisdom will shine like the sun.

FAMILY

                                                     SPEECHLESS!!!

Here is where we get to the heart of the matter. It is very difficult indeed to simply ignore or remain silent when family treats you unwisely. I can tell from experience that because of your love for them you will be forced to pardon family members. Some of them will absolutely break your heart with how they treat you. It is something that if you continue to build yourself up and maintain a strong relationship with God, you will be prepared to do. Many times due to our love for family members they are actually able to grow and become better people. However, there is a limit to how much unwise treatment we should take from family. When the unwise treatment endangers you, other family, or household safety, is where the line should be drawn.



Well everyone, I just wanted to illustrate and summarize a thought that was on my mind. Hopefully you found this article useful, Godspeed in your quest for self mastery.

I LOOKED AROUND UPON THE WORLD, AND SAW THAT IT WAS SHADOWED BY SORROW AND SCORCHED BY THE FIERCE FIRES OF SUFFERING…PONDER THIS AND BECOME THE DIFFERENCE….

Greetings to all! I present to you today an article about an author that I have written about before.  This author echoes much of what I write and speak about living a life of wisdom, righteous lifestyle, and being a protector. This author’s name is James Allen. The book I will be featuring in this post is titled “The Path to Prosperity”. I will only be including the foreword in this post as I feel there are powerful insights and noble ambitions shared by the author that are of great benefit to mankind. However, I will be sharing even more content about this book in future articles.  Until then meditate on these opening words from James Allen’s “The Path to Prosperity”.



I looked around upon the world, and saw that it was shadowed by sorrow and scorched by the fierce fires of suffering.

And I looked for the cause. I looked around, but could not find it; I looked in books, but could not find it; I looked within, and found there both the cause and the self-made nature of that cause. I looked again, and deeper, and found the remedy. I found one Law, the Law of Love; one Life, the Life of adjustment to that Law; one Truth, the truth of a conquered mind and a

quiet and obedient heart. And I dreamed of writing a book which should help men and women, whether rich or poor, learned or unlearned, worldly or unworldly, to find within themselves the source of all success, all happiness, all accomplishment, all truth. And the dream remained with me, and at last became substantial; and now I send it forth into the world on its mission of healing and blessedness, knowing that it cannot fail to reach the homes and hearts of those who are waiting and ready to receive it.

Words cannot fully express how much I can relate to this author. This foreword could have easily been a foreword for one of my books as his thoughts mirror mine so closely. My desire is to inspire and equip men, women, children, and families/households with powerful tools to protect

IF YOU SEEK WISDOM, IT WILL ENTER YOUR HEART AND KNOWLEDGE WILL BE PLEASANT TO YOUR SOUL.

Hello everyone, I present you today with a bit of wisdom from the book of Proverbs in the Bible. These words are surgical in their presentation of how to keep chaos out of your life. If you scroll through all of the articles that I have posted on this blog you will see how my words are a constant echo of what you are about to read. It is my hope that some people somewhere are inspired by the “Warrior Wisdom Blog” if so my work is not in vain. With that being said enjoy…

Proverbs 2: 1-15

1 My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, 2 turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding—




3 indeed, if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, 4 and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, 5 then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God. 6 For the LORD gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. 7 He holds success in store for the upright, he is a shield to

those whose walk is blameless, 8 for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones. 9 Then you will understand what is right and just and fair—every good path. 10 For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul. 11 Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you. 12 Wisdom will save you from the ways of wicked men, from men whose words are perverse, 13 who have left the straight paths to walk in dark ways,

POWERFUL SONG ABOUT DAUGHTERS, THAT ALL MEN NEED TO HEAR… THERE IS MUCH TO ABSORB FROM THESE LYRICS!

Greetings everyone, I bring you another song with a message. As I have mentioned in other articles, music makes a powerful impact on hearts and minds. Believe it! So the type of music is incredibly important it is not the conscious listening that gets impacted the most but the subconscious listening that does. Your subconscious is always listening, it is the most powerful part of your mind. Program it righteously, with righteous content.
See the source image



This song touched my heart deeply when I heard it because I feel so strongly about encouraging, inspiring, and helping everyone live wise and safe lives. However, women and children in this case especially daughters I feel strong about for they are the most vulnerable to the bad things in this world. As the lyrics point out “boys will be strong and soldier on but boys would be gone without warmth from a woman’s good, good heart”. Men I speak to you, especially, join me in being the righteous examples and protectors. Be the example of the man you would want your daughter to marry. So she would know exactly what to look for and never settle until she finds it, and yes we deserve things that women “should give us” too however, that’s another subject. Perhaps I will write an article about that… Though I am sure many of you have heard it, I now present to you the song “Daughters” by John Mayer. Below I have also include the lyrics.

Lyrics

I know a girl
She puts the color inside of my world
But, she’s just like a maze
Where all of the walls all continually change
And I’ve done all I can
To stand on her steps with my heart in my hand
Now I’m starting to see
Maybe It’s got nothing to do with me
Fathers, be good to your daughters
Image result for fathers be good to your daughters gif
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
So mothers be good to your daughters, too
Oh, you see that skin?
It’s the same she’s been standing in
Since the day she saw him walking away
Now she’s left cleaning up the mess he made
So fathers, be good to your daughters
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
So mothers be good to your daughters, too
Boys, you can break
You’ll find out how much they can take
Boys will be strong
Image result for strong little boy gif
And boys soldier on
But boys would be gone without warmth from
A woman’s good, good heart
On behalf of every man
Looking out for every girl
You are the God and weight of her world
So fathers, be good to your daughters
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
So mothers be good to your daughters, too
So mothers be good to your daughters, too
So mothers be good to your daughters, too

 

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.

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…

THE PROCESS OF BECOMING… IF SWORDS COULD SPEAK! ARE YOU LIKE A SWORD? READ AND BE ENCOURAGED!

What do you see in this picture? Looks pretty much like worthless scrap metal. So many of us can relate to feeling worthless at some point in our lives. Just another “rat” in the “race”. Or in this case just another piece of scrap metal on the pile entangled with all the other pieces. Sometimes although we know we are entangled, those entanglements become comfort zones preventing growth.

Image result for scrap metal

Then, as if feeling worthless at times isn’t bad enough life can heat you UP to the point that you feel like you are melting DOWN. It can seem unfair, and with how those who are “in power” show no compassion, that just may be the reality.

 



Image result for molten metal in water gif

Now, here is where things seem to get even more out of hand but it happens. Not only are we dealing with our own feelings of self worth, and life heating us up, but we actually encounter people and circumstances that strive to beat us down.

Image result for anvil blacksmith gif

Then, just as things seem to be totally hopeless the heating and the beating stops, and life seems to “cool” down. Things seem to take shape again.

Related image

You see,  as many of you know, I like to use analogies and parables to convey concepts, and processes of life. This analogy of the “becoming of the sword” surgically illustrates what happens to us in life. However, what we “become” as a result is up to us. If we refuse to “melt down” when life “heats up”. If we refuse to stay down when people or circumstances strive to “beat” us down, we will become as razor sharp as the Katana sword. I speak from experience. Life’s processes have made me razor sharp, and continue to sharpen me daily because I always expand my knowledge and application. So, if swords could speak they would tell us a story of how they became what they are. They would tell us how worthless they once thought they were before they became a sword. They would tell us about the heating and the beating and how much it hurt, and then they would tell how they have become sharp enough to slice through any problem life had to offer.  In closing, I would like to ask each of you, who do you think the “Blacksmith” sharpening you is… GODspeed in your quest…
