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.

4 WAYS IN WHICH UNFAITHFULNESS/ADULTERY IS BETRAYAL AND 7 STRATEGIES TO PROTECT YOUR RELATIONSHIP FROM IT!

 

TWO WAYS TO DEMOLISH CHAOS. A WARRIOR WISDOM CONCEPT.

If you have read any of my articles before, you are aware that I like to help people apply what they learn easier. I do so by sharing information with practical concepts and illustrations. With that being said, meditate on this biblical, Warrior Wisdom principle.

You will find that the way to demolish chaos in your life can be found if you just embrace.

1.                                    2.

You simply must not lead with your heart. You must lead with your mind. However, you must acquire wisdom so that your mind leads your heart well. Once your are wise then you will be more disciplined with your emotions. Wisdom eventually gives you methods for dealing with chaos that can occur in your life. You become, a “master of the situation” a “master of the circumstance. Right now so many people are ruled and tormented by circumstance and situation, and thus they respond to life emotionally. This is why always say, embrace mind over emotion, method over madness. I could share pages, and pages on this topic but I think you get the point.   I write about it in my book “Harness the Power Within and Without”. I hope this post has encouraged and enlightened you. Please feel free to share, comment, and subscribe. Godspeed everyone.

A DAY OF BOXING AND FOOT WORK.

If you are familiar with Shu Ha Ri Do then you are already aware that along with everything else I also teach conventional boxing. 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. In this video you will see mitt work with students going through different punch counts, and a little bit of our footwork drills at the end.

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…

3 POWERFUL STEPS TO TRUE MANHOOD. A WARRIOR WISDOM PERSPECTIVE…

1.IT IS A MAN’S WORLD!

Now, the reason I say it is a man’s

world is because. Men have the most

 POWER to cause evil or good. What do

I mean? For example if you take the

strongest male and the strongest female

and placed them in a physical test of

Image result for mike tyson training gif
MIKE TYSON

strength, speed, or combat, well,

Image result for usain bolt gif
USAIN BOLT

such a proposal would be considered

unfair. The reason is because men

are obviously stronger and faster. If you are in

your home at night and hear a noise

in your backyard no man would send

Image result for woman peeking through window gif

his wife to investigate. When there

is a male suspect in a crime who is

violently resisting arrest, we do not

send female officers. So with that

being said these are only a few

examples of why I say it is a man’s world.

2.WITH POWER COMES RESPONSIBILITY!

Because we as men have the power to

cause evil or good to other men, and

especially to women and children.

Image result for cute babies gif
LIL CUTIE PIES

We must learn to take responsibility

for that power. Realizing that our

influence whether good or evil matters.

We have only to look at the results of

powerful men who have chosen to live

CHARLES MANSON

their lives according to evil or good.

I won’t go into detail with a list of men

as I am sure you can think of several

good and evil ones on your own. I will

however mention the greatest “good man”

and hero of my life and that is Yashuah (Jesus).

3.HOW TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR POWER AND INFLUENCE!

You must become sensitive to the need

around you. The need for protectors,

guiders, advisers, teachers, heroes,

BOOKER T. WASHINGTON

those who inspire, rescuers, etc. There

are many other categories however, if

you just look around, you can see the

need for yourself. Unfortunately, we

do have those who have chosen to

be predators, if this is you, realize

Image result for RESCUING KIDS FROM A MOLESTER GIF

that  you too can change, you can be

different. You can become sensitive to

the people you you’ve targeted. You can realize

that you would not want it done to

your daughter, son, niece, or nephew.

You would want someone to rescue them

from someone like you. You can be that

person, right now! To EVERY man I

encourage you to develop a righteous

code of living. A code of loyalty, wisdom

honor, integrity, fairness, and faithfulness.

These are all things we would teach

our sons. These are all what we would

tell our daughter or niece to look for

in a man. You can be that man, that

example for them right now! Be

encouraged men, rise up and take

responsibility for the footprints you

leave in the lives of people around

you. However you cannot do this

effectively without being patience. Being

able to pardon character flaws in others.

When you master the character flaws

in yourself, you will automatically be

more empathetic with the flaws in your

wife, son, daughter, sister, brother,

friend, neighbor, co-worker or an

antgonizer. It will give you a sense of

calmness, when you feel annoyed and

will definitely increase your power as a

person.  It will help you to develop a

“self mastery toolbox” for dealing with problems,

and temptations. I will give you some examples

of what I did to build my “self mastery toolbox”.

My Tool Box

In 1990 when I was 19 I gave my life to

the Kingdom of Heaven. I then began

to study everything I could about a

righteous lifestyle, a Kingdom Lifestyle.

I studied everything I could about

human growth and development, the

mind, science, history, and the fight or

flight mechanism. I studied every type

of bible to get the full perspective I

copied the dictionary so that as I read I

could see more in the words. I spent hours

upon hours in the library pouring

Image result for BOOKSHELF GIF

through books that expanded my

understanding of  people, cultures,

empires, and the disturbing genetic

history of Earth. I embraced a life of

celibacy for 6 years until I was married.

I taught hundreds of people throughout

Image result for CROWD OF PEOPLE

this period. Obviously that number has

only multiplied tremendously. During this time I

practiced martial arts obsessively to

discipline my mind and body. It aided me

in walking the path I was walking.

This all culminated into my

creation of Shu Ha Ri Do in 1998.

Image result for SHUHARIDO

So why am I sharing this with you? To

let you know that it can be done.

You can become a righteous, and

powerfully influential person on this

Earth even if it is just one person.

Your footprints in peoples

lives can be constructive and not

destructive. You can develop a

“self mastery toolbox” that will allow

you to  9 1/2 times out of 10 make wise

decisions. You will then see clearly

how you can be a protector, guider, adviser,

Image result for protector gif

teacher, hero, one who inspires, or a

rescuer. You can become this without

doing everything I did. You do not have

to be what I am. However, you can be

what God meant for you to be on this

Earth which can be even more! There is

a blue print for what I am saying found

Image result for blueprint gif

 

in the bible. With it and other comparable

knowledge you can build yourself into

a veritable:

FORTRESS OF TRUE MANHOOD.

Image result for fortress

So… I encourage you to join me mentally,

and emotionally in embracing

true manhood and applying it physically

wherever you are. It can start right now!

It is up to you.

DO NOT DECEIVE YOURSELF. APPLY!

THE “OAK” IS IN THE ACORN. A GOOD TREE CANNOT BEAR BAD FRUIT. WHAT KIND OF TREE ARE YOU?

 THE OAK IS IN THE ACORN!

tree nature branch blossom plant photography fruit leaf flower food green produce insect botany flora fauna acorn close up shrub bud macro photography flowering plant woody plant land plant

What am I getting at in this post you ask? Well the title says it all. What kind of tree are you? In the bible Yashuah (Jesus) said a good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. So, what kind of fruit are you baring? What kind of tree are you? What I mean by the statement “THE OAK IS IN THE ACORN” is that the the content within the acorn is the blue print for the oak tree.

Seeing what an acorn can become is pretty amazing. With that being said I must ask you, 3 questions. What is your content? What is your blue print? What will you become? “Becoming” is based on content, which becomes the substance of the blue print of your life. Content can be clarified by this phrase “source of learning”. What is your source of learning, is it based on materialism, partying, drug use, drunkenness, promiscuity, disrespect,

Image result for criminal

scamming, gossip, infidelity, anger, rage, betrayal, jealousy, envy of others, hatred, arguing, trouble making, bullying etc. Clearly, those things would be considered “bad fruit”, and no good tree bares bad fruit. So again I ask what is your content (type of learning). Are you in an environment that endorses those negative qualities, giving you a pat on the back for living that way? Are you constantly listening to music and watching “programming” that glamorizes those qualities? Meditate on this very carefully and be honest with yourself, when you do you will see clearly the things you must eradicate from your life.

Now, that I have covered that, the next question is, what should you add? Before I tell you allow me to clarify that what I share is not about religion, but relationship, and lifestyle, a Kingdom lifestyle. I do not view the bible religiously I view it as the true and wise blue print for the righteous life that would make God proud of us. Now that I have said that, here is a scripture that I feel covers the topic very well.

1st Corinthians 13:4  

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

word newspaper drink paper page label close up brand text message truth information news printed wisdom

This my friends is a scripture from the bible highlighting attributes that everyone and their grandmother would say are good qualities to have. These are the things you should add. These things should be your “content”. These things should be a part of your “blue print”. These are qualities that everyone would consider “good fruit“. These are the things we teach little children to aspire to. These are the things that should continue well into adult-hood. It takes wisdom and courage to seek and absorb good sources of learning. So, I ask again, what is your content, what is your blue print, what kind of tree are you?
