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.

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,

WALK WITH THE WISE AND BECOME WISE. ASSOCIATE WITH FOOLS AND GET IN TROUBLE. A MESSAGE FOR ALL, ESPECIALLY THE YOUNG.

Greetings everyone, as you live and learn please understand, that wisdom is not popular. If it was, everyone would be embracing it. The reason wisdom is not popular is because it puts you in a position where you have to change and be better. Many are not ready to change or to be better, because all be it temporary, so many of the things that are unwise feel good to do. Many of us get into things that are not good for us for different reasons life can be hard, as a human myself I have empathy. However, the purpose of the “Warrior Wisdom Blog” is to teach you how not to be a victim of anything or anyone, even yourself…

The title “Walk with the wise and become wise, associate with fools and get in trouble” is a quote from the bible proverbs 13:20. Do not underestimate the impact of associations on your life. 

SMOKING

Some may say “I have my own mind, no one can make me do anything”. This is true no one can “make” you do anything. However, a fool can “make” anything look cool or appropriate to do. For example, take smokingRelated image

the results of smoking on health, are clear and without debate. If anyone is unsure about the effects of inhaling any kind of smoke, tobacco or otherwise, they would only have to ask themselves if their lungs were made for smoke, or what are the beneficial effects of smoke inside of the lungs. However, so many light up and inhale all kinds of smoke daily. One may say the songs didn’t “make” me do it or the movies didn’t “make” me do it. This is true however, many movies and songs are definitely not educating you on why you shouldn’t.

 



 INFIDELITY

Image result for cheater

Or how about infidelity i.e. cheating on your mate? So many movies and songs make that look cool or appropriate to do. However, no parent would endorse their son or daughter being cheated on. No son or daughter would endorse their mother or father being cheated on.

SUMMARY

In closing let me say that here are so many other activities that I plug into this article. However, I encourage you to examine your own life and associations and to determine where there is a lack of wisdom.

Just remember this just because you SMILE when you do it does not make it wise…

Once you see the effects of a lack of wisdom in your life. Once you see the chaos that a lack of wisdom brings to your life, certain actions should cease to be FUN to you. As a result it should become easier for you to get focused on separating yourself from those who are foolish.

FOOTWORK FOR THE JAB, 3 WAYS TO EFFECTIVELY MOVE FORWARD WITH THE JAB…

 

Greetings everyone, in Shu Ha Ri Do the jab is a big part of how we dictate and control the pace of fights. In fact there have even been knockouts based on how I teach the jab. Maximizing the mechanics that I teach helps you to develop the knockout power that I speak of, with just the jab. Click here for a video of one of my students ALFONSO “CHOC” FRIERSON from the DAWGFIGHT documentary executing the power of the “Shu Ha Ri Do Jab” with surgical precision. However, the video I present to you below is about using the jab while moving forward.

Greetings everyone in this video I share with you useful techniques for gaining control of an opponent and taking him or her down. Do not just practice this once or twice. To simply become discipline at it you must have the mind-set to do it 1000 times. To become a master at any technique you must have the mindset to do it 10,000 times. When you have that many repetitions under your belt, you no longer have to think, things just become automatic.

Whether liquid, solid, or vapor what can resist water? In a word, nothing! There is much to be learned simply by observing water. Much that can be applied to our lives. I have mentioned in a previous post how my ultimate inspiration JESUS said “I am the living water” and how another inspiration of mine Bruce Lee said “be water my friend”. Well, I would like to share a quote with you from another person who inspired me.

FROM WATER TO ICE A FLEX FIST BOXING CONCEPT

 



LAO TSE’S THOUGHTS ON WATER

Nothing in the world is as soft and yielding as water. Yet for dissolving the hard and inflexible, nothing can surpass it. The soft overcomes the hard, the gentle overcomes the rigid.

CRASHING WAVE

Everyone knows this is true, but few put it into practice. Therefore the Master remains serene in the midst of sorrow. Evil cannot enter his heart. Because he has given up helping, he is the people’s greatest help. True words seem paradoxical. -Lao Tse-

Image result for OCEAN FREEZING gif
FROZEN SOLID

I would like to add a little more insight into what Lao Tse means when he says “because he has given up helping, he is the people’s greatest help”. When we think of helping someone most times we think of putting forth effort. For many, to help does not come natural it is something that they have to remind or force themselves to do, which requires effort. However, when you think in terms of water, ask yourself where is the effort in water?

 



There is none, water is effort-LESS. We will become the “greatest” help when our help to humanity is effortless. This requires wisdom. The wisdom to know that there are systems of oppression in place that have broken the backbone of children and families everywhere! Once you become aware of and  acknowledge this fact, compassion should be automatic. Then whatever you can offer to uplift, inspire, inform, and protect children and families should be given freely and effortlessly.  Just how water flows, and changes from one form to the next effortlessly, so you should live your life.

 

 



This is a big part of the meaning of the Shu Ha Ri Do symbol. This is how I live. If it inspires you I encourage you to walk the path with me. Please feel free to browse the many articles I written on this blog there is so much powerful information that I share here. It is my hope that I have inspired some. Godspeed in your quest for self mastery under the Kingdom of Heaven…
