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.

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.

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…

WISDOM FROM THE BOOK OF HAI CLUE

Greetings everyone and thanks for your visits and your comments on previous articles. I present to you another Hai Clue. This one is called simply…

 



PERMISSIBLE BUT NOT BENEFICIAL

Many call it having a “good” time,
how do you define “good“?

Is it “good” to dull the mind
through the use of drugs
and the abuse of liquor and wine?

Image result for drunkenness gif

The end result is always chaos, death, jail or prison time.

The reply?

“I’m not hurting anyone
Just simply having fun.”

Well, would you encourage your
daughter or son
To copy your “version” of fun?

Many live only to tickle the senses
and spiritual knowledge they shun.

In your quest is for spiritual growth
there’s one thing you need to see.

That sensuality
Is the opposite of
Spirituality…

“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.

There is a process to becoming. YOU CAN CHANGE! You can become the righteous person that God wants you to be. There is a process to “becoming”. It is not a “magical” thing where all of a sudden you just change every character flaw you ever had. You must learn yourself, what your patterns, triggers, and temptations are. Then, you “program” yourself with the opposite.

ONE OF MY BOOKS, PART OF HOW I ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO LIVE LIVES THAT PLEASE OUR CREATOR.

 



If you desire to become more patient, kind, loving, humble, faithful, loyal, unselfish (all things which the bible calls fruits of the spirit Galations 5:22) then reprogram your mind with these things. Just know you MUST TRAIN!  REPETITIVELY! Remembering the principle of “thousands of repetitions” not tens or hundreds. Becoming masterful at something takes at least ten thousand repetitions so know from the start that walking this path is for the rest of your life! So, THINK, FEEL, DO CAN BE SUMMARIZE LIKE THIS:

 As you see, read, or hear, so you think.

 As you think, so you feel.

 As you feel, so you do.

As you do, so you become.

2.TRUST YOUR INTUITION

Image result for intuition gif

3.BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS

Do not have your head buried in your cell phone when you are walking. Remain aware of your surroundings so that you can detect a “glitch in the matrix”.

4.ALWAYS BE READY TO DEFEND YOURSELF

Invest in pepper spray or a stun gun, and know the zones on the body that you should strike to stop an attacker. You have to develop a side of you that thinks like a predator would. You simply cannot walk around thinking that the world is this big happy place and that it’s your playground. People are victimized daily especially those who think that way. You must be able TOflip the switch and STOP someone from attacking you.

5.BE WISE WITH SOCIAL MEDIA

Turn off your location settings! If you MUST post personal things make sure it’s view-able by family or close friends only!

Related image

6.DON’T TRUST EASILY

If you suspect something be decisive. If someone approaches you on the street you should feel zero remorse about stopping the conversation when you feel that something is not right. If you think someone is following you
enter the closest building, and tell someone that you think you are being followed. Take not of what the person looks like and the vehicle they are driving so that you can pass this on to the police.

REGARDING EMPLOYMENT OFFERS

Image result for vassar police human trafficking job scam

7.GET CREDIBLE ADVICE

If you are offered what seems like an exciting job opportunity locally or in another country, it is imperative that you ask several questions, and get a lot of advice from friends, family, lawyers and professionals in a related field.

8.VAGUE INFORMATION ABOUT THE JOB

If you are give no further information about the company or job after you call, then you should take that as a confirmation of a scam. Overall be wary want ads, street signs, internet employment offers that sound too good to be true.

9.RECRUITING TACTICS

Also be wary when someone recruits you via social media. Never, accept advice, opportunities, or money from someone recruiting you via social media.
