TRANSPARENT, BUT APPARENT. TRAINED EYES SEE… POWERFUL METAPHOR. A MUST READ!

Hello, everyone, I share with you today another bit of wisdom as usual in parable, riddle like form. TRANSPARENT, BUT APPARENT. TRAINED EYES SEE…

Image result for eyes gif



In life there can be many traps set by very clever predators.

TRANSPARENT

All of us would definitely call a spider an apex predator. What  or who have you seen in this life can be compared to spiders.

TRANSPARENT

Think of the very intricate webs they weave. Think of how clear and almost noticeable the webs are. How many of us to our terror have accidentally run into a spider web? Think of the panicked way we flail around trying to get untangled. Now think of an insect who runs into the same web and ask yourself if the insect had seen the web would he still have flown into it? Now as you know here at the “Warrior Wisdom Blog” I use a lot of metaphors. I leave you with a question on this topic. What are the webs in your life that you need to avoid…



And now a bit of good news! I have recently started a store based on my concepts I teach. Below you will find a shirt illustrated the article you just read. If you like my blog and have been inspired by what I share. Please Rep The “DO” by purchasing one of the awesome tee shirts on the site. The store is just beginning and there will be much more merchandise added in the weeks to come. Join me in promoting Warrior Wisdom by wearing merchandise with a wise message. The name of the store is The “DO” collection, DO means way in this case the “Way” of Shu Ha Ri Do Warrior Wisdom. You do not have to be a martial artist to be wise, but it is my goal that every Shu Ha Ri Do martial artist will indeed be wise. Godspeed in your quest.

3 POTENTIAL HUMAN TRAFFICKERS, 3 METHODS THEY USE, AND 5 ROLES THEY ASSUME. PLEASE SHARE THIS!

3 POTENTIAL TRAFFICKERS

Please be aware that human traffickers can come in three primary groups.

1.FRIENDS

Choices of friends is so important. Please understand that their are certain habits that can expose you to a human trafficker. Parties, the club scene, drunkenness, drug use or “getting high”are risky activities and should be seen for what they really are “unwise”.

2.FAMILY

Sadly, in some cases family members have been known to sell their own. So, be aware, we live in a new world that is only getting more dangerous.

3.INTIMATE PARTNERS

This is an obvious one. A wise blueprint is incredibly important when it comes to choosing a mate. So many of us having chosen unwisely at some point in our lives. My blog addresses this area and so many others providing a wise blue print for every part of your life is the goal of this blog.

1. Pretender — Someone who pretends to be something s/he is not, such as a boyfriend, a big sister, a father (figure), etc.

Greetings everyone, in this post I am pleased to share with you one of my “Flex Fist Boxing” principles. The “Hinge Fist”. I call it Hinge Fist because of the “opening door” effect of the movement, and because the joint of the arm actually works like hinges on a door. This is one of the “principles of speed” I write about in my book “Flex Fist Boxing”. Well, now that I’ve said that enjoy the video.

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…

Finding that edge that will separate you from good to better is one thing. however, find the edge to greatness is very difficult and many don’t achieve it. In this video I appreciate George St. Pierre’s approach to finding that edge.

“ENEMY BECOMES ALLY” A SHU HA RI DO WARRIOR WISDOM CONCEPT… LEARN AND APPLY THIS!!!

Greeting s everyone below is a powerful excerpt from my book Harness the Power Within and Without. Covering a Shu Ha Ri Do concept I call “ENEMY BECOMES ALLY” please take time to internalize this concept, it can change your life…

The first part of Enemy Becomes Ally is easily understood. In a hand to hand combat situation, redirecting or combining a physical opponent’s energy with your own, thus making him your ally because using his strength, you become twice as strong.

Image result for using an opponent's strength against them



However, another aspect of enemy becomes ally as stated in previous chapters is harnessing and channeling or redirecting the power of, circumstance, and situations. 

For example we have all heard the cliché what does not kill you makes you stronger well I have found this to be true. Circumstance, and situations, can be used in much the same way that a blacksmith uses fire and hammer to create fine swords, however, it is how we view these things that determines whether we become stronger, weaker, discouraged, encouraged, patient, impatient, and so on. To you the readers I say strive also to see the “design”(the divine guiding HAND) in your daily circumstances and situations.

Recognize that life does indeed have a pattern most see it as random, once again our control lies within ourselves, our thoughts, our feelings, our reaction, our choice. You will not be immune to pain, sorrow, grief etc. however, knowledge is power and wisdom is that same power applied. You can apply this element of the ENEMY BECOMES ALLY concept once you get through the natural process of human emotion. You will be able to see the enemies of circumstance and situation become your allies. Now that I have covered the enemy of circumstance, and situation, we now will cover the enemy of self.

Aristotle said:
“I count him
braver who overcomes his desires than him who
conquers his “physical” enemies, for the hardest victory is
the victory over self.”

Image result for bruce lee mirror gif

Well, we have all heard the other cliché of being your own worst enemy, well, this is also true. Put into practical terms there are many ways in which we are enemies to ourselves all by choice whether knowingly or unknowingly ignorance is no excuse. Some examples of ways we are our own enemy are through;

choice of friends
appetites
likes/dislikes
places you go
pass times
overall, things done that are known to be detrimental
and detrimental things done out of ignorance.

Before we examine a few of these areas I would like to remind you of the possible stimulus for choices of friends pass times etc. In the previous chapters I mentioned words like trend, fad, style, peer pressure, etc. and how these things filter down from our society through television, movies, Hollywood, etc and thus cattle prod us into a way of thinking. Some things about this pattern are beneficial but most are detrimental. Regarding choice of friends some people can look at some of their friends and see things that they know are bad habits like;

drug use or sales
drunkenness

Image result for drunk caught gif
stealing
overall bad ethics, values, morals
disloyalty
betrayal
cheating/infidelity

however, the same continue to be their close friends even. It’s insanity for them to think that some of those character flaws will not rub off on them or that they may not be caught up in some kind of problem later because of those same flaws. You simply must be honest about what is right, true, and best. You must be honest about what a righteous lifestyle looks like, and NOT to make excuses for the opposite.When you are brave enough to acknowledge character flaws when you see them, and not justify them, this is the beginning of making your “Enemy”

your “Ally”. Thanks for reading, please, subscribe, comment, or share, help me spread the wisdom I provide on this blog. Information like this is desperately needed, especially in the hearts and minds of young people.
