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!

 

BE INSPIRED BY THE CHARACTER OF THE EAGLE. PHASE 4 OF SHU HA RI DO. THERE IS MUCH TO IMITATE

THE EAGLE

In Shu Ha Ri Do there are 7 phases. The fourth phase deals with animalistic obstervations and principles. I teach students animalistic fighting forms that I created in 1998. One of them is the bird, more specifically the eagle. The focus however, is not to simply fight with movements like an eagle, but to copy the useful character and nature of the eagle. In this post I outline some of the character traits.

THE ARE FEARLESS CREATURES

When confronted eagles will never surrender no matter the circumstances.

EAGLES HAVE VISION

Eagle is 4 to 5 times stronger than humans they can detect a prey nearly 2 miles away!

Image result for eagle vision gif

Are you short sighted with your life? What type of vision do you have?

THE ARE PRECISE

Nothing compares to the precision of we witness seeing an eagle snatch a fish out of the water!

Image result for eagle catching fish gif

How precise are you with your life, work, family, etc.? Are you sloppy?

EAGLES LOVE USING STORMS TO THEIR ADVANTAGE

Though most animals hide in fear during storms. Eagles actually get excited during storms using the winds to lift them high above it.

Image result for eagle vision gif

Do you see storms of life as breaking you down, destroying you? Or do you see them as opportunities for growth?

HIGH FLIERS

Eagles fly at high altitudes that no other birds can reach.

Do you think all that you are good for is to be a bottom dweller?

FAMILY PLANNING

Male and female eagles assume powerful roles during family planning. Once the female eagle chooses a high place in the cliffs out of reach of predators the male goes to work building the nest. Making several trips back and forth the male layers the surrounding areas of the cliff with thorns, grass, twigs, more thorns, grass and twigs. He continues this process until the surrounding area is impenetrable by predators and the nest is layer on the outside with thorns, and the inside with grass.

OUTWITTING THE DEVIL, IF YOU HAVE NOT READ IT, YOU MUST!!!

BEWARE OF THE WEB WEAVER

 

OUTWITTING THE DEVIL, IF YOU HAVE NOT READ IT, YOU MUST!!!

Greetings everyone. I am creating a new category called the Warrior Wisdom Book Club. I will be posting some of the books that have changed my life, and helped shaped me into the person I am today (of course the Bible is the foundation for me). This book written by Napoleon Hill provides powerful and disturbing insights into the 2nd most dangerous enemy facing mankind (the 1st being ourselves/choices, which is why wisdom is so important). In this book Mr. Hill is conducting an interview where he coerces the devil to be candid with his answers about how he tricks mankind. The book begins with Napoleon telling the devil character that he has become aware of a code by which he can force him to be truthful in his responses.

Getting people to “drift” is his number one weapon.

However, the devil character cautions Napoleon to address him as (wait for it) “Your Majesty”! Though I have respect for my enemy I could only laugh at the audacity! You will see a a side of this enemy that you probably never considered. The questions are answered in such a way that it seems only the devil could answer. When I started reading it I could not put it down, I was amazed by the realness of the answers the character of the devil gave in this book, it just seemed so real, this book will make you think outside of the box. You can also listen to the audio book by clicking here I encourage you to read an actual copy, and listen to the audio in whatever order you choose.   Feel free to leave your questions or comments, and we can discuss it.

A QUOTE FROM THE GRAND-MASTER HIMSELF, SIMPLY SURGICAL! -BRUCE LEE-

When it comes down to mastering yourself, and taking control of your life reading, listening, and watching is simply not enough. Application is the teeth of self mastery. The more you apply the knowledge you absorb the more you are able to sink your “teeth” into how to change and overcome. Without application you are deceiving yourself. You must do the goodness you read, watch, and listen to. Once your absorb righteous information, immediately think of ways to put it into practice.(James 1:22-25)

The above quote should be your approach to self mastery. It will be a long term siege, basically for the rest of your life, waging war against your mind, body, and emotions. Keeping them in check so that the footprints you leave in the lives of others and in the world itself are righteous. Be inspired along the way knowing that such a commitment to this sort of lifestyle will keep the chaos of un-mastered character flaws out of your life. Although Musashi Myamoto did not live a Kingdom of Heaven lifestyle there are things that I take from how he approached his life. This quote is one that I fully embrace.

A POWERFUL EXCERPT FROM AUTHOR JAMES ALLEN

Unbroken sweetness of conduct in the

face of all outward antagonism is

the infallible indication of a self-conquered

soul, the witness of wisdom, and the proof

of the possession of Truth. A sweet and happy

soul is the ripened fruit of wisdom, and it

sheds abroad the invisible aroma of its

influence, gladdening the hearts of others,

and purifying the world.  If you would

have others true, be true; if you would

have the world emancipated from misery

and Sin, emancipate yourself:

if you would have your home and your

surroundings happy, be happy, and

this you will naturally and spontaneously

do as you realize the good in yourself.

Romans 12:2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world but, be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

As an author and of books covering

topics like building a righteous mind, and self

mastery under the Kingdom of Heaven,

I fully endorse this excerpt from author

James Allen’s book “Mind is Master. These are

strategies I have used repeatedly in my life when

dealing with challenges. One tip I

can give you about applying this is, that

emotion can be your enemy. When faced

with challenges you should not make a

habit of responding emotionally. This is

when mistakes are made. You  must think

of your mind as a tool box. If you do not

have tools then all you have is emotion.

If your only tool is a hammer then you will

try to hammer your way through every

situation. Some situations require a

screwdriver, or a wrench not a

hammer. This is why the Bible is so

important, it gives us a blueprint of what

useful tools look like. Then, moving forward

you are able to recognize those tools in

other sources. Seeing such wisdom

explained by others like myself only

provide confirmation of how you should

live. I can tell you from experience, it keeps

chaos out of your life. I am living proof. Please

subscribe and share with young men and

women you know. My desire is for young

people to stay out of jail,

prison, walk the path of righteousness

and connect with God.

FORCED ENTRY IS NOT NECESSARY…

Then the ears are the doors.

Entry by force?

Not the necessary course!

WISDOM FROM THE BOOK OF HAI/CLUE

When it comes to your mental consumption, I encourage you to, “DINE SUBLIME”

Hello everyone, here is another thought provoking nugget of truth from The Book of Hai/Clue it’s called “Dine Sublime”.  Please share your thoughts, or epiphanies! Enjoy!

“Dine Sublime”

Can you see them? can you see the signs?

You can see them in movies, commercials, and daily life,

But the best way is to research ancient times.

Rest assured what you uncover will come under fire by cynical minds.

“The Word” (the sword of the spirit that is) I find,

confirms and is supported by history of all kinds.

People, places, times, events, cultures, and civilizations,

are all encoded within the lines.

So….

Let the cynics remain,

with their thoughts maintained.

On historical truth I encourage you to dine.

Historical truth is sublime.

Forward vision is incomplete.

Hind-sight is where past and present meet.

Our society is now…

 However, true awareness
occurs when one questions
“What was then ?”

Or “what happen when?”

Not just “what’s happening now?”

So I encourage you dine sublime, and look behind,

For what’s behind always escapes the mind.

Perspective:

Historical truth like fruits and vegetables
should be the basis of our diet.

Guard your passions, they shape you!

An eye opening excerpt from my book “The Book of Hai Clue” poetic nuggets of truth. I wrote this book to expose powerful hidden wisdom for the warriors seeking/walking the path of truth. Today’s title is…

Guard your passions

 

Give it a nice rhythmic beat

And they’ll surely not see the deceit

 

Provide a nice tune

Or conceal destructive concepts in songs, movies, and cartoons

And they’ll consider it harmless all too soon.

 

Stir the passions through media and song

And before too long

 

Passion blinds rationale

right or wrong.
