ABOVE ALL ELSE GUARD YOUR HEART, FOR EVERYTHING YOU DO FLOWS FROM IT…

Greetings everyone and as usual may this article find you healthy, prosperous and wise. I present to you today a proverb from the Bible, it is exactly as the title reads, ABOVE ALL ELSE GUARD YOUR HEART, FOR EVERYTHING YOU DO FLOWS FROM IT... I will provide you with an illustration of how this is true and methods of how to guard your heart.



1. What is the heart?

5one’s innermost character, feelings, or inclinations  
6athe central or innermost part 
bthe essential or most vital part of something the heart of the city
Well according to the Bible above all you should guard your “innermost character, feelings, inclinations,the most vital part of you”.
You definitely should NOT allow yourself to be overrun by destructive concepts or philosophies, regardless of who attempts to “redefine” what is destructive. You have only to ask yourself “what would I teach my child to do?”. If you will not teach your child to get drunk, use drugs, steal, lie, or cheat then, clearly these are not good concepts to allow into your own heart.

2. Everything you do flows from it.

Understand this, your life is not random. As soon as you realize that what you do flows from what is within your heart, you can seize control of what you do by controlling what goes into your heart. It is just that simple… I have said it in several different ways in several articles on this blog. This is a part of the way to self mastery under the Kingdom of Heaven. God has established a way for us, it is up to everyone to acknowledge the wisdom that flows from him… Well, just another gentle nudge toward wisdom and truth and that’s all I’m going to say about that. It is my hope that this article has enlightened and inspired you, until next time Godspeed everyone.

HANGING ONTO ANGER IS LIKE DRINKING POISON AND EXPECTING THE OTHER PERSON TO DIE…5 STEPS FOR AVOIDING THIS TRAP…

Greetings everyone, I know it has been a while since my last post. However, I am working on something that will bring even more interesting content to the “Warrior Wisdom Blog”. If you are a subscriber or regular visitor I am sure you are going to enjoy it! For now I will provide you with my illustration of the following quote by Buddha… HANGING ONTO ANGER IS LIKE DRINKING POISON AND EXPECTING THE OTHER PERSON TO DIE…

Let me tell you my strategy for dealing with those that trigger anger. You must:

  1. Realize that everyone has character flaws, do not be deceived…

2. Recognize the character flaws of a person before they even engage you…

3. Value your time and resources and do not feel pressured to interact with someone who you know has character flaws that will cause you harm, and trigger your anger. Realize that being “selectively social” is not popular do not expect a lot of endorsements for embracing this mind set.

4. If you are already involved or have already been harmed and your anger triggered. You have got to have the courage and discipline to disengage, before you make a permanent decision over a temporary emotion.

5. Lastly when you disengage you have got to “emancipate yourself” from the mental and emotional slavery of anger. Perpetual anger is simply toxic, it is indeed a poison for you mind and soul… Set yourself free and become inspired with the fact that you now how have a blue print for protecting yourself from being triggered in the first place…

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

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

 

Greetings everyone, it is my hope that this post finds you happy, healthy, and wise. It is also my hope that this article inspires you. It has been said that life is a battle which means, there is a war. There are many ways in which we must become wise to the war. A teenager getting through the challenges of high school,

 A college student advancing through college

A graduate finding a career

 Finding a husband or wife

Safely raising children

All of these can be seen as a battle, because none of them are easy. It requires “APPLIED KNOWLEDGE” which is what wisdom is. In battle you must most “APPLY KNOWLEGE” which is being wise. There are others ways we could be at war with the more directly evil elements of the world. However, I will not cover that here, I have found that if one governs oneself with the highest wisdom much of those element can be avoided. So to summarize getting knowledge is half of the battle, applying knowledge is the other half. However, there is still one last step to this “war winning strategy” I will illustrate them all below.

 



 

 BUILD YOURSELFRelated image

As I have mentioned in previous articles you must build yourself with righteous knowledge. Output is equivalent to input, what you put in your mind will be expressed through the body, do not doubt this it is irrefutable! Seek daily to build yourself with righteous Godly knowledge become consumed with it! I did back in the 90s when I copied the dictionary, basically lived in libraries and book stores, studied every type of bible, all major religions, philosophy, the sciences, and lived a life of celibacy for 6 years until marriage. I waged war against my mind and body throughout this time to become disciplined. During this time I perfected the martial arts system Shu Ha Ri Do that I founded in 1998. Most importantly during this time I forged a relationship with God that sustains me to this day. I can truly say that his power fortifies my soul and his passion for his people has become my passion. Which is why I do what I do, but I began with building myself with righteous knowledge and applying it. It is the path that I know for becoming an honorable, trustworthy, loyal, moral, person of integrity. It is the path, the Code that I teach. It is a “war winning strategy” I encourage you to start building yourself with righteous and Godly knowledge and applying it, wage war against the flaws you see in yourself and your output will be pleasing and powerful, I guarantee it.

 



USE THE BEST BUILDING MATERIAL

Image result for carpentry gif

As I mentioned in the above section not only must you build yourself but if you want a Godly and righteous outcome you must use righteous “material”. For me concepts like, faithfulness, loyalty, truthfulness, morality, humility, patience, kindness, peace, and compassion, are “THE BEST BUILDING MATERIAL” all are concepts I found in the bible. Through applying these concepts in my life and in the lives of others I have forged powerful bonds of trust, love and loyalty. Through them I have built a strong family unit. You can too, you must wage war against temptations to be unfaithful, disloyal, untruthful, immoral, arrogant, impatient, unkind, chaotic, and uncompassionate. These are NOT “THE BEST BUILDING MATERIAL” using them is not a “war winning strategy” because they are self destructive.

 

CHOOSE THE #1 ALLY

Image result for God gif

Although I have many allies in this life, for me there is only one #1 Ally and that is God. I have declared my alliance with the Kingdom of Heaven. In a war the first ally I would choose would be the strongest one i.e. the #1,   I encourage everyone who have not to strongly consider it. Choosing the #1 ally is the “check mate” of this “war winning” strategy I present to you.

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

 

WATER IS ALWAYS CORRECT! PURSUING SELF MASTERY? READ AND COMPREHEND THIS!

Greetings everyone, in my book “Harness the Power Within and Without” I cover Shu Ha Ri Do concepts for self mastery under the Kingdom of Heaven. Below is a powerful excerpt from that book. It is my hope that this article inspires you in your journey.

“FROM HARNESS THE POWER WITHIN AND WITHOUT”: In the Shu Ha Ri Do Symbol the body is represented by water. What are the attributes of water? Its calm, it’s cool. However based on the stimulus it can flow rhythmically or crash violently, water can be vaporous like steam or

FROM WATER TO ICE A FLEX FIST BOXING CONCEPT

solid like ice. Its versatile it reacts instantly, overtime it will dissolve anything its perfect. To quote the ultimate inspiration in my life Jesus said he is the living water. To quote another major inspiration in my life Bruce Lee said we should be like water, be like water indeed, when faced with any challenge



Image result for be water my friend gif
BRUCE LEE

in life reacting with sound judgment should be your goal. At times the body could be spurred into action quite impulsively, like when in a verbal or physical confrontation. This is when mistakes, sometimes costly ones are made. What spurred you into action? Your mind of course, the good thing about the body’s relation to water is that it reacts to stimulus the bad thing can be just that, it reacts to a stimulus.

What type of reaction depends on the morals, ethics, values, and condition response patterns established in our minds.

We are accountable for what we do through our bodies it starts with how we think. Thinking before reacting is a big part of being wise. This is what I mean when I say “WISDOM BEFORE COMBAT”. 

In “Harness the Power Within and Without” I go into more detail about the mind and it’s influence on the body. Feel free to visit the book page on amazon to read more about “Harness the Power Within and Without”.

THE STORY OF HOW I CREATED SHU HA RI DO, AND MY MOTIVATION FOR WRITING AND TEACHING

 

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.

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.

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…
