YOU ARE THE CAPTAIN OF YOUR SOUL…SMOOTH SEAS DO NOT MAKE SKILLFUL SAILORS…

Hello everyone, I hope you have all been doing well, and feeling inspired and powerful. I present to you today a simple African proverb,

“SMOOTH SEAS DO NOT MAKE SKILLFUL SAILORS”.

In life we have all faced what can be described as “rough seas”. It is how you view those situations that determine how you handle them. If you VIEW them as hopeless, destructive, or back breaking, then you will have little to no determination, drive, or energy, to find answers and fight your way through.

Image result for depressed energy emoji gif



Moving forward because you chose a hopeless VIEW, you will indeed HANDLE those times hopelessly, and those times will become destructive and back breaking for you.

Image result for injured emoji gif

To change the way you handle life you must change your VIEW. Always look at rough seas as training moments, any training a person goes through helps them to acquire skills. Look at it this way, you do not have to go through the “rough seas” blindly and thus haphazardly acquire the skills in question.

You can seek knowledge on just about any “rough sea” you could ever face. In the 90’s I spent hours upon hours in libraries and book stores 3 or four times a week for years with 20 to 30 books on the table absorbing knowledge. Nowadays, Google, or YouTube has tons of “how to’s”, there is simply no reason for hopelessness, especially with prayers. Keep in mind also that these are lessons anyone would want their child to know, so why not foster such knowledge in your own life?

Image result for boat emoji gif

So, in summary VIEW  the “rough seas” as making you a skillful sailor, after all you ARE the captain of your soul…

IS WHAT HAPPENED FORTUNATE? IS IT UNFORTUNATE? MAYBE…PONDER THIS WISDOM…

 Greetings fellow wisdom seekers. As always it is my hope that today’s post finds you healthy, wealthy, wise, and powerful. It is also my hope that today’s post will make you even wiser. Below is a short story about a Chinese farmer written by Alan Watts.

The story goes like this:



Once upon a time there was a Chinese farmer, who lost a horse. It ran away. And all the neighbors came around that evening and said, “That’s too bad.” And he said, “Maybe.”

Image result for WHITE HORSE RUNNING GIF

The next day the horse came back, bringing seven wild horses with it. And all the neighbors came around and said, “Oh, that’s great isn’t it?” And he said, “Maybe.”

Image result for 8 HORSES IN A STABLE GIF

The next day his son was attempting to tame one of these horses and ride it. He was thrown and broke his leg. And all the neighbors came around in the evening and said, “Oh, dear that’s too bad.” And the farmer said, “Maybe.” 

The following day the conscription officers came around looking for people to recruit into the army and they rejected his son, because he had a broken leg. And all the people came around and said, “Well that’s great isn’t it?” And he said, “Maybe.” 



 Many times in my posts I provide an in depth illustration of what’s presented. However, I find that the lesson in this story shines through with surgical precision. I could summarize it like this however, in life remain poised, hold your “horses/emotions” (when things happen) and never get ahead of them. Always take note and learn from everything good or bad, knowing that there is always more than meets the eye. Sometimes what we see our don’t see may just be a matter of limited perception…

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.

RESPOND WISELY, EVEN WHEN YOU ARE TREATED UNWISELY. THE 3 MAIN AREAS TO APPLY THIS. THE 3RD IS THE HARDEST.

Greetings everyone, it is my prayer that my post finds everyone motivated and inspired on the path to self mastery, the life long journey. Today I bring you a thought which I will illustrate and summarize. The thought is simply, “Respond wisely, even when you are treated unwisely”. Let me tell you from experience that this will be one of the continuous challenges of your life. The wiser you become, the better you will treat people, however, the wiser you become it will seem like some people treat you worse. It is a conundrum I have noticed. You will find that you will have to grow in your humility, and patience as you will find yourself pardoning others often. Don’t be discouraged, this is the path of self mastery, this is the true “Warriors Path”.  And now for the 3 areas…

WITH STRANGERS OR PEOPLE WHOM YOU HAVE NO CONTINUOUS ASSOCIATION

Image result for bad customer service
I WOULD NOT SUGGEST LEAVING A MESSAGE IN KETCHUP, BUT YOU GET THE IDEA…



These are people whom you see randomly like a mail lady, cashier, neighbor, business owners, etc. Please understand that these people are not in your circle. They should be no where near your heart so their unwise treatment should not matter as much. If they annoy you, you can go to another restaurant or store. You also do not have to respond, silence is a great source of strength. You have no obligation to maintain a dialogue with them. So you can “unplug” their negative unwise energy with silence.

WITH CO-WORKERS

Image result for negative co worker gif
THE BOSS FROM THE HILARIOUS MOVE “OFFICE SPACE”

Now here is where we take a step closer to the heart. Now my advice is to protect your heart by maintaining a certain level of separation when it comes to work. How you can you protect your heart simply by being professional and objective. Am I saying that you should show no feelings? Absolutely not. However, as we all know some co-workers can treat you very unwisely. So you must maintain a high level of professionalism. At work you will many times find yourself in awkward positions where you feel forced to interact with a co-worker who treats you unwisely. At those times remain focused on the objectives and let the objectives be your common ground just throw your energy into getting the job done and dominating your work. Again remember that “silence is a great source of strength” you can also “unplug” the negative unwise energy of a co-worker with being silent whenever they attempt to treat you unwisely. If the treatment continues and they leave you know choice, you can go to the next level and get management involved. However, utilize silence repetitiously before you do and watch your wisdom will shine like the sun.

FAMILY

                                                     SPEECHLESS!!!

Here is where we get to the heart of the matter. It is very difficult indeed to simply ignore or remain silent when family treats you unwisely. I can tell from experience that because of your love for them you will be forced to pardon family members. Some of them will absolutely break your heart with how they treat you. It is something that if you continue to build yourself up and maintain a strong relationship with God, you will be prepared to do. Many times due to our love for family members they are actually able to grow and become better people. However, there is a limit to how much unwise treatment we should take from family. When the unwise treatment endangers you, other family, or household safety, is where the line should be drawn.



Well everyone, I just wanted to illustrate and summarize a thought that was on my mind. Hopefully you found this article useful, Godspeed in your quest for self mastery.

YOU BELIEVE THAT OUTWARD THINGS HAVE THE POWER TO MAKE OR MAR YOUR LIFE? BY DOING SO YOU SUBMIT TO THOSE OUTWARD THINGS…

Greetings everyone, good morning, good evening, and goodnight wherever you are. I present to you another round of Wisdom For Warriors in an excerpt from James Allen’s “Path To Prosperity”. As I have mentioned before this author was incredibly on point in his writings. As you should know by now if I endorse an author or anything on the “Warrior Wisdom Blog” it will definitely be beneficial. James Allen is a lesser publicized author that I fully endorse, his work is incredibly profound and insightful, and is a must read for all truth seekers. With that being said enjoy the excerpt.



Whether one be fearful or fearless, foolish or wise, troubled or serene, within that soul lies the cause of its own state or states, and never without.

Image result for inside the mind gif

And now I seem to hear a chorus of voices exclaim, “But do you really mean to say that outward circumstances do not affect our minds?”

Image result for wait a minute gif
                                                                       TIME OUT…

I do not say that, but I say this, and know it to be an infallible truth, that circumstances can only affect you in so far as you allow them to do so.

Image result for bingo gif
               THAT IS CORRECT SIR…



You are swayed by circumstances because you have not a right understanding of the nature, use, and power of thought. You believe (and upon this little word belief hang all our sorrows and joys) that outward things have the power to make or mar your life. By so doing you submit to those outward things, confess that you are their slave, and they your unconditional master.

Image result for slave to experience gif
YOUR MIND WILL KICK YOUR BEHIND IF YOU FEED IT NEGATIVITY

By so doing, you invest them with a power which they do not, of themselves, possess, and you succumb, in reality, not to the mere circumstances, but to the gloom or gladness, the fear or hope, the strength or weakness, which your thought-sphere has thrown around them.

SUMMARY

In other words “your mind makes it real! For example as soon as you start to tell yourself anything negative like, disease, disaster, or hardship, take note of what happens to your stomach. Take note of how your hands may begin to sweat. You can make your blood pressure rise off the charts simply by thinking! Please understand this, you are not simply a victim of circumstance. At least you do not have to be, whatever happens in one moment, you have the next moment to counteract it and make things better. I also write about these things in my book “Harness the Power Within and Without. You have only to decide and learn to think differently, it is all up to you.

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.

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,

LIFE IS A BATTLE, BUT BE INSPIRED, BUILD YOURSELF, USE THE BEST BUILDING MATERIAL, CHOOSE THE #1 ALLY AND YOU WILL WIN.

 

Greetings everyone, it is my hope that this post finds you happy, healthy, and wise. It is also my hope that this article inspires you. It has been said that life is a battle which means, there is a war. There are many ways in which we must become wise to the war. A teenager getting through the challenges of high school,

 A college student advancing through college

A graduate finding a career

 Finding a husband or wife

Safely raising children

All of these can be seen as a battle, because none of them are easy. It requires “APPLIED KNOWLEDGE” which is what wisdom is. In battle you must most “APPLY KNOWLEGE” which is being wise. There are others ways we could be at war with the more directly evil elements of the world. However, I will not cover that here, I have found that if one governs oneself with the highest wisdom much of those element can be avoided. So to summarize getting knowledge is half of the battle, applying knowledge is the other half. However, there is still one last step to this “war winning strategy” I will illustrate them all below.

 



 

 BUILD YOURSELFRelated image

As I have mentioned in previous articles you must build yourself with righteous knowledge. Output is equivalent to input, what you put in your mind will be expressed through the body, do not doubt this it is irrefutable! Seek daily to build yourself with righteous Godly knowledge become consumed with it! I did back in the 90s when I copied the dictionary, basically lived in libraries and book stores, studied every type of bible, all major religions, philosophy, the sciences, and lived a life of celibacy for 6 years until marriage. I waged war against my mind and body throughout this time to become disciplined. During this time I perfected the martial arts system Shu Ha Ri Do that I founded in 1998. Most importantly during this time I forged a relationship with God that sustains me to this day. I can truly say that his power fortifies my soul and his passion for his people has become my passion. Which is why I do what I do, but I began with building myself with righteous knowledge and applying it. It is the path that I know for becoming an honorable, trustworthy, loyal, moral, person of integrity. It is the path, the Code that I teach. It is a “war winning strategy” I encourage you to start building yourself with righteous and Godly knowledge and applying it, wage war against the flaws you see in yourself and your output will be pleasing and powerful, I guarantee it.

 



USE THE BEST BUILDING MATERIAL

Image result for carpentry gif

As I mentioned in the above section not only must you build yourself but if you want a Godly and righteous outcome you must use righteous “material”. For me concepts like, faithfulness, loyalty, truthfulness, morality, humility, patience, kindness, peace, and compassion, are “THE BEST BUILDING MATERIAL” all are concepts I found in the bible. Through applying these concepts in my life and in the lives of others I have forged powerful bonds of trust, love and loyalty. Through them I have built a strong family unit. You can too, you must wage war against temptations to be unfaithful, disloyal, untruthful, immoral, arrogant, impatient, unkind, chaotic, and uncompassionate. These are NOT “THE BEST BUILDING MATERIAL” using them is not a “war winning strategy” because they are self destructive.

 

CHOOSE THE #1 ALLY

Image result for God gif

Although I have many allies in this life, for me there is only one #1 Ally and that is God. I have declared my alliance with the Kingdom of Heaven. In a war the first ally I would choose would be the strongest one i.e. the #1,   I encourage everyone who have not to strongly consider it. Choosing the #1 ally is the “check mate” of this “war winning” strategy I present to you.

NOTHING IN ALL THE WORLD IS MORE DANGEROUS THAN SINCERE IGNORANCE AND CONSCIENTIOUS STUPIDITY…

Hello everyone thanks for visiting today, tonight, or whatever part of the day it is where you are. I bring to you today a wise quote from Dr. Martin Luther King. As usual I will provide my summary and graphics to further illustrate the point being made by Dr. King. Internalize the wisdom from this quote.

NOTHING IN ALL THE WORLD IS MORE DANGEROUS THAN SINCERE IGNORANCE AND CONSCIENTIOUS STUPIDITY… -Dr. MLK

What is sincere ignorance?

 Sincere: True, honest, open and genuine

Ignorance: Lack of knowledge or information

Image result for ignorance is the night of the mind
SINCERELY IN THE DARKEST DARK

 



Why is it dangerous?

Because sincerity, openness, and genuineness mixed with a lack of knowledge creates a false sense of understanding, delusion is the result.

Image result for smarty pants emoji
THINKING YOU KNOW WHEN YOU DON’T

What is conscientious stupidity

Conscientious: characterized by extreme care and great effort

Stupidity: The opposite of intelligence, it is usually responsible for many acts that follow the words, “Hey, watch this!”
Related image
A “GREAT EFFORT” TO BE UNINTELLIGENT

 



Summary

So what we have with this quote is either someone with a lack of knowledge who “genuinely thinks” they understand. Or someone who puts forth a “great deal of effort” to be unintelligent on the subject in question.
My advice, seek knowledge then seek to understand and apply what you know. Never confuse “sincerity” with “knowing” something. You can be sincerely wrong. Never stick to what you “think” you “know”, always seek to become more and more “intelligent” about the things that matter in life.
As usual my friends and students, Godspeed in your quest for wisdom.
