Karma is Coming to Collect Update…

Hello, warriors!!

Some information you want.

My Karma is Coming to Collect VIDEO is almost one hour-long, 57 minutes — and it is coming online very shortly. More on that in a second.

I am developing a major media project. I have agreed to do some social networking, as evidenced by the recent launch of my Twitter account.

I want to emphasis some. I will not tweet every hour on the hour as many others do. Works for them, fine. Not for me.

Still figuring out how to work Twitter. Once I get it down, I’ll level you warriors with clotheslines of creativity, courage and wisdom — each thrown with Ultimate Warrior intensity.

Making your life happen on your OWN terms is not easy. In our Warrior World this is a good thing. We don’t want easy. Challenge is good. Attention on superficial shit will not get you to where you dream to go. MY Twitter will post intense thoughts and ideas that focus on strength and self-discipline, not life-destroying crap.

About the Karma video. I now have access to professional editors that can tweak my videos and audio in a way I never could. They are breaking this one-hour video into pieces. Segments will start rolling out next week. After all these pieces are online, more details about the media project will be provided. Time is close to rip fresh ass.

Gotta run.

Before I do, I want to let ALL you warriors, Ultimate Warrior fans and ALL warriors otherwise (you don’t have to be an Ultimate Warrior fan to live your life with the spirit of a warrior), that I appreciate every single email I get. The stories you send are the best — the ULTIMATE.

Words aren’t enough to have you know how much they mean to me. Sometimes I have a great deal of frustration that I can’t personally respond to each and every one. Sometimes it rips at my heart. Even if there were 48 hours in each day I still would not have enough time. I just don’t want any of you who write to think your email went unread or it was just a waste of time to sit and reveal your thoughts, ideas and feelings.

I read every single one, without fail. And I promise you, I always will.

Your Founding Father of Ring Intensity,

Always Believe,

Warrior

Hello warriors.

Here is today’s Weapon of Warrior Wisdom.

Life is learning. And it should be conducted from beginning to end.

I’m thankful that I’ve been fortunate to never stop paying attention to the lessons that my life experiences have provided me. To those who of you who often seek my advice and answers for the challenges you face in your OWN lives, what I have learned is all I have to offer. By no means do I know it all.

I can tell you with absolute sureness, though, that if you choose safety over the potential risks that come along with choosing freedom, you will never be truly fulfilled in your life. You will always think in the back of your mind that you have missed out on something “special” about life. And as you get older, not only will your willpower to turn things around weaken and eventually vanish altogether, your regret will deepen and your heart will sigh with heaviness and sorrow.

What that something special is, that you will feel you missed out on, is not so complicated or mysterious that it can’t be pointed out. It is no more difficult than saying and understanding the word “special.” You feel like you missed out on something special about life because that is exactly what you’ve done: you refused to let what was “special” about you as an one-of-a-kind human being come to life. You denied its presentation and performance, and over time, its spirit shrivels up and eventually dies and leaves a vacuum inside of you.

The innate desire for freedom, which lies inside every human being, is not there so we will choose fear. It is within us so that we will choose to face it.

Hello warriors.

Here is today’s Weapon of Warrior Wisdom.

Nietzsche was an original. He OWNed his life. He made his OWN way. Had his OWN ideas and thoughts. Didn’t ask or beg anyone else to put life together or figure it out for him. He did it like others who truly come to OWN their life do. They use each day to learn for themselves. They believe of themselves that they are capable and that to live a life of ignorance is not really living life at all.

It’s not that people you admire for their success and their way of going about life never have doubts, fears and uncertainties. Hell, they are mortal human beings just like you and they often hold shit opinions of themselves. Their secret, if you want to call it one (it is not!), is that they never quit. They refuse to cower before the judgments, the attitudes, the struggles, the walls. They see themselves just as worthy as any other human being who lives or has ever lived. Their allegiance is to their life. It is their time on this planet. They never stray far from that place inside of themselves where they hold the belief that nothing is impossible for them to do.

You were born a FORCE — ONE to be reckoned with.

It is NEVER too late to reset your thoughts and actions on a course for OWNing yourself. NEVER.

Hello warriors.

Here is today’s Weapon of Warrior Wisdom.

If you won’t quit — you won’t fail. A lot of you guys out there write me and tell me about all the difficulties and problems you face in your life (and your family’s), and that to go by the news it doesn’t seem like things aren’t going to get any better for a while.

You tell me this stuff like I have some secret and should turn you on to it.

I don’t.

I also don’t have your solution.

But I can tell you this, as long as you sit and whine and complain, things are not going to get better, they are only going to get worse. Whatever you have before you to do to cure your ills, you should do it fucking right now — whatever it takes. Whatever price you have to pay. Whatever you have to give up. Whatever sacrifice it will take.

There is a tide in the affairs of men
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat;
And we must take the current when it serves,
Or lose the ventures before us.

– William Shakespeare, Julias Ceasar

Even if you fail at everything else, don’t fail at being a man and doing what it is that a man must do.

Hello warriors.

Here is today’s Weapon of Warrior Wisdom.

People go to their graves without doing the things in their life they dreamed of. I know, nobody wants to hear about it. I do find it sadly funny, though, that every time I get to know someone well enough to end up in a discussion with them about their life, they sure as hell can’t do anything but talk about it. Talk about the fact that they are not doing in their lives and with their lives what they would really like to do, i.e, they ain’t doing their dreams. I think that sucks.

A whole life is a long time to go depriving your dreams. That’s one hell of a nasty payback to impose on the very things that have worked tirelessly to brighten your outlook on life when you found yourself down in the dumps and fluttered your heart when you believed no one else in the world cared.

You know what? It’s time to quit sucking. It’s time to give your dreams the journey they deserve.

That tiny voice inside of you that you hear? It is the truth trying to get your attention. When the rest of world is drowning it out, turn and tell it to shut the fuck up.

Let me tell you something.

Your soul won’t let you have it both ways. Either it lives a worthy life — or one of waste.

Don’t be one of the Soulwasters.

Hello warriors.

Here is today’s Weapon of Warrior Wisdom.

All these classic guys were prognosticators, in their own way. They theorized and predicted things in their time that we are seeing and realizing now. And, in a startling way, they were damn good at it.

I’m not down with Freud’s cigar fascinations nor plenty of his other psychobabble, but man, he would have had more than just a few spectacular field days psychoanalyzing the man-child we now have for President.

Hello warriors.

Here are today’s Weapons of Warrior Wisdom.

If you’ve been coming around for awhile, you know I’m a long-time admirer and reader of The Great Books of The Western World.  As part of the self-motivating library of Weapons I’ve created (story here), I’ve often created Weapons by simply writing out great passages of text (in longhand) that inspire me.

I use the same quality art paper and also add my Warrior logo or a small doodle of a book or something else. I also scribble these in a commonplace book I keep, a journal for quotes, thoughts and ideas, interesting knowledge — a record, of sorts, of living an “examined life.”

Anyway, found some of these while digging through that big stack of Weapons I’ve talked about. So, thought I would add Weapons that are part of what I will be calling: Weapons of The Great Book Series.

112110 Weapon of Warrior Wisdom

Hello warriors.

Here is today’s Weapon of Warrior Wisdom.

I want to note something here that I believe has been misunderstood by some. These Weapons of Warrior Wisdom, as I came to call them, were, initially, created for me and my own (motivational) benefit, no one else’s. (I tell the story of why I do them at the Weapons page that catalogues all of them that I have made available for auction.) The weapons were never intended to be “polished” fine art pieces that I was creating solely to be sold to the public.

An art acquaintance suggested that I sell them — and it has turned out to be an awesome idea (most of them I have listed have sold), especially since I am an artist in the business of selling art. There are what some might see as minor flaws in some of these art pieces, i.e., the quality of handwriting, the bleeding of ink in places, and the apparent quick watercoloring. Does that prohibit me from seeing them as art or selling them? No, of course not.

When it comes to art, everything is subjective. If you think these Weapon pieces aren’t worthy of being called art, then you won’t think the $1,000,000.00 solid white canvas I can show in you one of the most revered art galleries in the world is either. The point is, no one who has bought one thus far has been forced to buy one. If you would like one, bid on it. If not, don’t.
