AWAKE OR ASLEEP? PLEASE MEDITATE ON EVERY LINE OF THIS POETIC WISDOM…

Greetings everyone how are you? Well, for what it’s worth it is my hope that this article finds you healthy, prosperous and wise. Today I bring you another bit of poetic wisdom from my book “The Book of Hai Clue”. It is simply titled…

Awake or Asleep?

Image result for asleep gif

Have you been awakened to the battle?

Or are you merely cattle?

Think your daily routine is relevant to the heart of the matter?

Consider your intuition…

Did you hear that?

{ Exactly }

Your routine is a clatter…



A chaotic chatter…

Sigh…

With much knowledge…

Comes much grief…

Once passed the sugary topping that is our reality

Where can one gain camaraderie?

One can choose to be blind again … so as to fit in

Or face exclusion … and embrace seclusion…

When you consider warnings of the ancient texts

Image result for ancient text

Above all you must understand the context…

Truth is stranger than fiction…

Embracing it brings societal affliction…

Wide and well groomed is the road to doom…

Lonely and full of gravel is the road less traveled…

It is the road to life but you’ll have someone by your side…

He is the holy spirit he will be your guide…



The choice you make, is the life you reap…

Image result for choices

The decision is yours…

Awake or Asleep…

ABOVE ALL ELSE GUARD YOUR HEART, FOR EVERYTHING YOU DO FLOWS FROM IT…

Greetings everyone and as usual may this article find you healthy, prosperous and wise. I present to you today a proverb from the Bible, it is exactly as the title reads, ABOVE ALL ELSE GUARD YOUR HEART, FOR EVERYTHING YOU DO FLOWS FROM IT... I will provide you with an illustration of how this is true and methods of how to guard your heart.



1. What is the heart?

5one’s innermost character, feelings, or inclinations  
6athe central or innermost part 
bthe essential or most vital part of something the heart of the city
Well according to the Bible above all you should guard your “innermost character, feelings, inclinations,the most vital part of you”.
You definitely should NOT allow yourself to be overrun by destructive concepts or philosophies, regardless of who attempts to “redefine” what is destructive. You have only to ask yourself “what would I teach my child to do?”. If you will not teach your child to get drunk, use drugs, steal, lie, or cheat then, clearly these are not good concepts to allow into your own heart.

2. Everything you do flows from it.

Understand this, your life is not random. As soon as you realize that what you do flows from what is within your heart, you can seize control of what you do by controlling what goes into your heart. It is just that simple… I have said it in several different ways in several articles on this blog. This is a part of the way to self mastery under the Kingdom of Heaven. God has established a way for us, it is up to everyone to acknowledge the wisdom that flows from him… Well, just another gentle nudge toward wisdom and truth and that’s all I’m going to say about that. It is my hope that this article has enlightened and inspired you, until next time Godspeed everyone.

Greetings everyone, and as usual I hope that my article finds you healthy, prosperous and wise. Well, I present you today with a video reinforcing the righteous concepts that the “Shu Ha Ri Do Warrior Wisdom Blog” is all about a “Righteous Code”. If what I share is protecting households from destructive philosophies then my mission is accomplished. In the video below I share more information of what my book “Harness the Power Within and Without” is all about. As always my goal is to inspire and empower you with “righteous” and “powerful” knowledge. Enjoy the video and Godspeed in your quest…

A FOOL IS QUICK TEMPERED, BUT A WISE PERSON STAYS CALM WHEN INSULTED…

Greetings everyone, and as always may this article find you healthy, prosperous, and wise. Today I provide you with a thought to reinforce values you already have or to encourage a value you should forge in yourself. As the title taken from The Book of Proverbs suggests, “A fool is quick-tempered, but a wise person stays calm when insulted”.

Mad Angry GIF - Mad Angry Rage GIFs



A lifestyle based on being quick tempered will only lead to self destruction. Your goal should be to control your emotions. You simply must develop the ability to compensate for the character flaws of others. Everyone has them, some choose not to change or seek not to master themselves. For those like them that you encounter, you must learn to compensate…

Image result for WISE emoji gif

Overlooking the flaws and ignorance of others not only allows you to control yourself, it also allows you to control that person. I call it “unplugging” the person. You see, people who have not chosen the path of wisdom many times get powered up by pushing buttons. You can “shut the power off” i.e. control them/unplug them by controlling yourself and not giving them the response they are seeking.



 

Read, study, and subscribe to this blog to increase your wisdom. Along with martial arts, wisdom is my primary message here, there are over 260 articles on this site. More than half of them are covering the topic of wisdom and self mastery. One promise I make to you is this, the more articles you read from this blog the more your tool box will begin to overflow with tools of wisdom and righteous living.

For even more insight into what this passage from the book of Proverbs is saying, I have provided multiple versions of the same verse below.

New International Version
Fools show their annoyance at once, but the prudent overlook an insult.

New Living Translation
A fool is quick-tempered, but a wise person stays calm when insulted.

Berean Study Bible
A fool’s anger is known at once, but a prudent man overlooks an insult.

Christian Standard Bible
A fool’s displeasure is known at once, but whoever ignores an insult is sensible.

Contemporary English Version
Losing your temper is foolish; ignoring an insult is smart.

Good News Translation
When a fool is annoyed, he quickly lets it be known. Smart people will ignore an insult.

Meditate on this concept and internalize it. Until next time Godspeed everyone.

SELF CONTROL IS STRENGTH, RIGHT THOUGHT IS MASTERY, CALMNESS IS POWER…

Hello friends, and thank you for visiting today. I bring to you today a quote from author James Allen, someone whose books I highly recommend!

SELF CONTROL IS STRENGTH, RIGHT THOUGHT IS MASTERY, CALMNESS IS POWER…

As usual, I will provide you with an illustration of this quote from my perspective.

1.SELF CONTROL IS STRENGTH

Self-control is a strength because giving in to every emotion you feel is actually shows no strength at all.

2.RIGHT THOUGHT IS MASTERY

Right thought is mastery because the way you think controls what you feel, and what you feel controls what you eventually do.

3. CALMNESS IS POWER

Think of a mountain,

Image result for mountain gif

an oak tree, cedar, or redwood, think of deep waters like a lake. Or perhaps even a humpback whale. Now, what do these things have in common? They can all be described as calm, the calming effects of a mountain, giant tree, deep waters, or seeing a humpback whale are undeniable. However, the real question is what the “calming” effect do you have on people and situations in your life. This is a major source of power that you simply must develop.



Well, everyone, I hope this post has inspired and enlightened you. Please share my blog with your circle of friends and as always Godspeed in your quest for self-mastery under the Kingdom of Heaven.

SHU HA RI DO NEXT GENERATION PROLOGUES #1,#2, AND #3…

Greetings everyone, I am pleased to present to you the first 3 prologues of the Shu Ha Ri Do next generation series that will be released very soon.  If you are not aware already Shu Ha Ri Do is a martial arts system I created in 1998. I have had several masters and grand masters share their knowledge with me. However, due to my intense pursuit of knowledge I have also had my own epiphanies and unique observations about martial arts and life in general which has become what you see within Shu Ha Ri Do. With that being said this series will attempt to convey the evolution of Shu Ha Ri Do up to this day with a story line that mirrors Shu Ha Ri Do wisdom. Next Gen is mostly about the evolution of Shu Ha Ri Do, there will at some point be a series that conveys the “origin” of Shu Ha Ri Do. Until then join us in the Shu Ha Ri Do NG adventure. If you haven’t already please feel free to view the trailers that have already been posted by clicking here!

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.

Related image

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…
