HOW TO PROTECT AND BUILD YOUR SPIRIT. GODLY KNOWLEDGE IS VITAL!!!

WISDOM FROM MY BOOK “HARNESS THE POWER WITHIN AND WITHOUT”

In my book Harness the Power Within and Without. I share practical tips for living a righteous lifestyle, how to build your mind, body, and spirit under the Kingdom of Heaven. In this article I share an excerpt from my book regarding how to build the spirit. This is what has helped me develop a very powerful spirit based on righteous/Godly knowledge. I am certain it will help you as well.

THE SPIRIT

The spirit is the part of us that desires morality, values, and longs to do the right thing.  Depending on what you allow in your mind your spirit can be overrun by negative external influences if you are not careful you can become desensitized.  When this happens positive inspiration of which God is the origin diminishes and you become even more enticed by negative superficial, man made influences.  Being influenced by man made things is not all bad.  However there are many man made influences that can be considered self destructive evidenced by the results produced.

  • Drug use results in jail time, and addiction.  Image result for drug addict gif
  • Excessive partying and drunkenness, results in, Alcoholism, DUI’s, vehicular manslaughter, and jail time. Image result for drunk gif
  • Marital infidelity or the so called “being a player” results in, divorce, domestic violence, kids suffering etc.Image result for infidelity gif

this is just a small example of the negative man made influences of our society. People fall into the previous situations because drug use, drunkenness, and marital infidelity or immorality, are just some of the many things that get glamorized by TV shows, pick one of the many;

  • movies,
  • songs,
  • videos
  • events like spring break
  • happy hour
  • and the night life environment

As a result of the glamour people are inspired by these things.  What’s worse is a life style based solely on this negative inspiration soon develops an intense appetite for it and loses the ability to tell the difference between negative and positive.  People develop reasons or justifications for why they are inspired by these things.  In the minds of people like this bad becomes good too.  Here is the trap remember a paragraph ago I mentioned man made influences like movies, music, etc.  Well people in the lime light who shun responsibility for their actions, by saying they are not mentors or role models, or saying there is nothing wrong with their behavior, the same wittingly or unwittingly help glamorize negative inspiration.  As stated before all man made influences are not bad, however, doesn’t it seem like society as a whole gravitates toward negative inspirationImage result for society celebrating evil gifThe lesson here is to protect the inside.  Inside of you is what is most powerful and most importantly what’s most vulnerable.  In the Shu Ha Ri Do symbol I use fire to symbolize the spirit with good reason because when you feed a fire it becomes an inferno.  Would you want a fire that burns inside you for the wrong things?  That’s the vulnerability of our spirit it’s synonymous with passion, desire, and drive, you must take care not to be driven by the wrong things.  To harness the power of the spirit you must take a spiritual inventory through meditation and introspection or contemplation. I have mentioned choosing or filtering what goes through the eyes and ears in other articles.  Well the eyes are without a doubt the windows to the soul or spirit and how do most thieves enter houses?

Yes, through the window. To be specific this thief is seeking to steal control over what fuels or inspires you, what you love, hate, your ambitions, or drives.  So our goal regarding the spirit should be to control methods of entry which would be what you hear & see.  Moreover, when you must hear or see something, like when watching a movie, or when with associates or co-workers, or simply because we live in this world.  You must filter out the impurities through meditation and introspection, meditating on or contemplating the positive knowledge and godly concepts you’ve read seen

or heard. You can view this as a spiritual inventory making sure the foundation of positive knowledge that you have worked so hard to establish is not being worn away.  Meditation and introspection help you remember that there is such a thing as morality, ethics, and godliness.  As human beings we are not just creatures of instinct or habit, we can cognitively harness and channel the powers of all three plains of our existence into predetermined goals.  We as human beings must remember that external influences i.e. the thief is seeking to harness those same powers that we possess so as to channel those powers into their predetermined goals.  Remember also, that your spirit is the most vulnerable part of your existence it is also the most powerful part of your existence.  It is the power within that’s stirred by thought, of which thought is stirred by what you see & hear.  Ask yourself what am I building within.  Develop the courage to look within and tell the truth about who you are, do not justify.  Do not rationalize if it means facing the reality that you are in worse shape spiritually than you ever thought, do it.  Be introspective take daily spiritual inventory.  Take courage and the sword of the spirit (a) and go within.

In phase one students are introduced to the 10 count of “Flex Fist Boxing” and the 10 count of conventional boxing. In phase two along with a host of other techniques students go deeper into the science of conventional boxing. Things like timing, footwork, head movement, and much more.

DON’T EXPOSE YOURSELF, 8 THINGS NO ONE NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT ON YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS…

WISDOM FROM “THE AWARENESS FORMULA”

In my book “The Awareness Formula”I share vital information regarding safety and awareness. Below is an excerpt from my book regarding social media. It is my hope that The Warrior Wisdom Blog will inspire, entertain, and keep you and your family safe. Until my next article Godspeed.

 SOCIAL MEDIA PITFALLS

Regarding social media you must understand that the world is not your personal playground. Just as you would not like to have the front

door to your home open 24/7 for anyone to take a peek at your daily activities why then would you make yourself available to a complete stranger simply because he or she had a nice profile message and picture?

Even if you do know the person from your high school days or from the neighborhood it is always best to maintain a certain level of privacy and distance. For example everyone is not worthy of knowing:

1.Where you live (Stalking and other crimes)

2. Your luxury car (Stalking and other crimes)

3.Where you work (Stalking and other crimes)

4.Where you shop (Stalking and other crimes)

5.What vacation plans you have (this broadcasts that your house will be empty)
6.What the inside of your home looks like (blueprint for a robbery)

7.How many children your have and where they go to school (RANSOM)

8.How good looking your you or your wife or husband is (Strife in the relationship due to someone flirting with you or your wife or worse one of you entertaining the flirts)

Please understand that when you post something on the
internet it is there forever, and that there are so many opportunities to snoop, plan, trick, lie, and gather information that even people who are not criminals like the person you knew in tenth grade or that co-worker you used to say hi to can be tempted to engage in criminal behavior. So just imagine what a seasoned criminal can do with the information you give him.

My advice to you is to always remember that the world is not your playground, your focus should always be safety first, recognize threat indicators, process information, then determine whether you, or your family should engage in the activity in question or not. What the world tells you is “go have fun do what makes you happy Y.O.L.O” (you only live once) right? Well hopefully you can see the lack of wisdom in those statements. Thank you for visiting the Shu Ha Ri Do Warrior Wisdom Blog and for taking the time to read this article.

It is vital that you understand,

For more clarity about the poem you just read. What do I mean when I say vibe? A vibe< like a noun can be a person place or thing. What kind of places are negative? Clubs, many parties, some neighborhoods. What kind of things could be negative? Music, movies, certain activities, and much more.

You have to keep it real with yourself. You know when something is righteous or not. However, if you choose to ignore the obvious red flags, then you simply cannot be surprised at what chaos comes to your life.

Guard your passions, they shape you!

TEACH THEM WELL, ONE DAY THEY’LL LEAD…

 

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!

SHU HA RI DO COMBAT MANEUVERS (COMS) STREET READY TECHNIQUES

These techniques are called COMS or Combat Maneuvers. These are to be practiced repetitively. However, know this the idea is not that you will hit an opponent with every shot. That is not practical. Landing 2 or 3 shots is a more reasonable expectation. You train repetitively on all techniques for muscle memory. As a result when the opportunity presents itself your hands or feet hit by themselves…
