WARRIOR OF LIGHT

BY PAULO COELHO

“A WARRIOR OF THE LIGHT KNOWS HIS OWN FAULTS. BUT HE ALSO KNOWS HIS QUALITIES.
SOME OF HIS COMPANIONS COMPLAIN ALL THE TIKE THAT ” OTHER PEOPLE HAVE MORE OPPORTUNITIES THAN WE DO. ”

PERHAPS THEY ARE RIGHT, BUT A WARRIOR DOES NOT ALLOW HIMSELF TO BE PARALYSED BY THIS; HE TRIES TO MAKE THE MOST OF HIS VIRTUES.

HE KNOWS THT THE GAZELLE’S POWER LIES IN ITS STRONG LEGS. TH POWER OF THE SEAGULL LIES IN ACCURACY WITH WHICH IT CAN SPEA FISH. HE HAS LEARNED THAT THE REASON THE TIGER DOES NOT FEAR THE HYENA IS BECAUSE HE IS AWARE OF HIS OWN STRENGTH.

HE TRIES TO ESTABLISH WHAT HE CAN TRULY RELY ON. AND HE ALWAYS CHECKS THAT HE CARRIES THREE THINGS WITH HIM: FAITH, HOPE, AND LOVE.

IF THESE THREE THINGS ARE THERE, HE DOES NOT HESITATE TO GO FORWARD.”

MY LIFE ARE WITH IN THESE LINES…THE MOST IMPORTANT THING I HAD TO DEVELOPE WAS CONFIDENCE WITHIN MYSELF, I HAD TO APPRECIATE THE QULITIES I POSSESSED AND WORK ON THOSE QULITIES TO STRENGTHEN THE MAN IAM BECOMING… THE HARDEST THING WITH THIS WAS NOT DOING WHAT CAME SO EASY,WHICH WAS, STICKING TO THE STREET LIFE OF VIOLENCE AND REACTING TO THE OPINONS OF OTHERS WHO MAY VIEW MY DEVELOPEMENT AS A WEAKNESS, SO THE NORM BECAME AN OBSTICAL WITH WHICH I VOWED TO OVERCOME AND CONCORE. ALTHO I STRUGGLE, STRUGGLE IS APART OF GROWTH AND WITHOUT GROWTH YOU REMAIN STAGNATED WITH THE CONTRAINTS OF LIFE AROUND UR NECK…. SO THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO LEARN IS WORK WITH WHAT YOU HAVE, NOT WHAT YOU DONT HAVE AND, STRENGTHEN WHO YOU FOR A BETTER YOU.

“THE MAGIC LADDER TO SUCCESS.” BY NAPOLEAN HILL

“PEOPLE ARE MADE OR BROKEN, ACCORDING TO THE USE THEY MAKE OF POWER OF THOUGHT. FAILURE MAY BE TRANSFORMED INTO SUCCESS OVERNIGHT, WHEN ONE BECOMES INSPIRED WITH GREAT IMPELLING MOTIVE TO SUCCEED.”

WHAT WILL IT TAKE FOR ONE TO TRULY SUCCEED? WHAT IS THE MEASSURING STICK WE USE TODAY FOR SUCCESS? WHAT WILL SPARK US TO REACH FOR MORE?

DOES IT NOT ALL START WITH THOUGHT…….?

LET ME KNOW YOUR THOUGHTS, HIT ME ON JPAY TYPE IN MY DOC # 328-677 AND I WILL WRITE BACK.
////////////////// /////////////////// /////////////////// /////////////////// /////////////// ” THE PRINCIPLES OF SELF AWARNESS ”
THE PRINCIPLES OF SELF AWARNESS IS A CLASS I DEVELOPED WHILE IN THE CONFINMENT OF THESE PRISON WALLS. I TOOK THE CLASSES THAT STAFFORD CREEK HAD TO OFFER BUT NONE SATISFIED THE HUNGER I HAD TO BETTER MYSELF, AND BY ME BEING SENTENCED WITH SO MUCH TIME IAM NOT AFFORDED THE OPPURTUNITY TO LEARN ANY USEFUL SKILL SETS THAT MAY GIVE ME THE PROPER TOOLS TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN MY FUTURE. SO IF ANY OF YOU HAVE READ ANY NEAPOLEAN HILL BOOKS( and i suggest you really should)YOU KNOW HE PREACHES THAT A LOT OF GREAT THINGS COME FROM FAILURE. ( WITH MORE TO THAT, OF COURSE ). SO CHECK IT OUT I MADE A MISTAKE OF SNAGGING SOME FOOD WHEN I WAS HUNGERY ON THE JOB, I GOT CAUGHT GOT FIRED AND DIDNT EVEN GET TO EAT THE FOOD ON TOP OF THAT…ANYWAY I PICKED UP SOME BOOKS BECAUSE I RATHER BE PRODUCTIVE THAN PRODUCTIVELY WASTING TIME SO THE BOOKS I READ CHANGED MY PROSPECTIVE, AND FROM THOSE BOOKS I DEVELOPED THE FOLLOWING CLASS CALLED “THE PRINCIPLES OF SELF AWARENESS.” THIS CLASS CONSISTS OF 8 DIFFERENTMODULES TOUCHING ON VERIOUS TOPICS AS FOLLOWS:

> AWARENESS OF SELF
IS AN INTRO TO WHO YOU ARE IN THIS MOMENT, WHAT YOU LOOK TO ACHIEVE, AND WHAT STANDARDS/MORALS DO YOU HOLD YOURSELF TO RIGHT NOW?

> CONSCIOUSNESS OF THE EGO
THIS PRINCIPLE GIVES THE INSIGHT ON THE SIGNS OF EGO AND WHAT MAY ENTICE THE EGO.

> CENTERING OURSELVES
THIS PRINCIPLE GIVES THE CONFIDENCE TO RECOGNIZE AND ACCEPT OUR FAULTS. THIS PRINCIPLE ALSO WILL HELP US RE-EVENT OURSELFS.

> AWARENESS OF OUR SURROUNDINGS
THIS SPEAKS ON BEING CONSCIOUS IN OUR ENVIRONMENT AND THE WAYS WE CAN BE A POSITIVE IMPACT.

> CREATING YOUR ATMOSPHERE
” BIRDS OF THE FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER” WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO CREATE WHAT WE WANT IN OUR LIVES. SO THIS PRINCIPLE SPEAKS TO CREATING PEACE & CALMNESS WITHIN OURSELF TO CREATE PEACE, AND, CALMNESS WITHIN OUR ATMOSPHERE.

> RECOGNIZE YOUR STRENGTHS
AT THIS POINT WE HAVE BROKEN DOWN THE EGO, SO WE CAN IDENTIFY OUR STRENGTHS AND HOLD TRUE TO BEING MORE AWARE AND PRODUCTIVE IN THE NEW ATMOSPHERE WE CREATED.

> REFLECTING ON YOUR POSITION
FROM THE BEGINNING WE MADE A LIST OF GOALS, PRINCIPLES AND WHAT WE STOOD FOR SO NOW WE DO OUR LIST AGAIN & SEE WERE WE STANF IN THIS PRESENT MOMENT, AND TALK ABOUT OUR EVOLUTION.

> APPLICATION OF THE PRINCIPLES
APPLY WHAT YOU’VE LEARNED. BE A POSTIONS INFLUENCE IN YOUR NEW WORLD!!!!!
LIVE IN THE MOMENT, OVERCOME THE MOMENT & LEARN FROM THE MOMENT. NO MOMENT LAST’S FOREVER!!!!
JERELL M. JACKSON

THESE MODULES MAY ENHANCE THE MORAL AND CHARACTER OF THE INDIVIDUALS THAT TAKE THE CLASS SURIOUS. I LOOK TO IMPLEMENT INSPIRATIONAL MOIVE CLIPS TO MOTIVATE AND PROVOKE BETTER THINKING. I THINK THAT NOW IS THE TIME FOR US TO TAKE A BETTER LOOK AT OURSELVES AS INDIVIDUALS AND TAKE THE NECCESSRAY STEPS TO CHANGE OUR THINKING AND MOVE FORWARD WITH A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE LOOK TO OFFER TO MAKE THINGS BETTER AROUND US. ITS TIME FOR US TO START RETHINKING THIS PRISON THING,OFTEN PEOPLE GET OFF TO BAD START IN LIFE, AND FIND THEMSELFS LOOKING TO IMPROVE THERE STATUS IN A SOCIETY THE INSTANTLY JUDGES YOU OFF OF WAT YOU HAVE NOT THE CONTENT OF YOUR CHARACTER. WHEN YOUR LIVING IN A WORLD WHERE THE SOCIAL FABRIC IS NOW NOW NOW. NOW IN DAYS WE ARE TEACHING PEOPLE TO ACT FIRST THINK LAST AND WORRY ABOUT IT LATER, THIS CLASS IS MENT FOR THE COMMUNITY LOCKED IN, TO CHANGE OUR THINKING PATTERNS AND FIND OUT WHO WE REALLY ARE ONCE WE LOOK IN THE MIRRIOR. I WILL BE HANDING OUT WORK SHEETS THAT LOOK LIKE THIS:
WHO ARE YOU?!?!!!!!???
OFTEN TIMES, A LOT OF US GO THROUGH LIFE NOT PUSHING OURSELVES OR KNOWING OUR CAPABILITIES TO TRULY FIND OUT WHO WE ARE. WE OFTEN TIMES GO WITH THE FLOW AND JUST RIDE IT OUT.

BUT WHO ARE YOU!!! WHAT IS THE REPERSENTATION YOU SEE OF YOURSELF WHEN YOU LOOK IN THE MIRRIOR? DO YOU SEE A POSITIVE IMAGE OR A NAGATIVE ONE? EXAMPLE: ” GANGSTA, FATHER, LOVER, CONVIT, CHANGED MAN”. IN SHORT MAKE A LIST OF THREE THINGS YOU SEE ARE POSITVIE & THREE THAT ARE NEGATIVE,ALSO GIVE A SHORT DESCRIPTION THE THREE THINGS YOU LISTED.
EXAMPLE:

Pos. Neg.
1.WARRIOR 1. OVER LOOKED
2.LOYALIST 2. A BROKEN BLACK CHILD
3.SUCCESS 3. INDECISIVENESS

EXAMPLE OF EXPLANATION OF YOUR LIST

Pos.
1. WARRIOR BECAUSE I WILL ALWAYS OVER COME
2. LOYALIST BECAUSE I KNOW WHAT BETRAYAL FEELS LIKE
3. SUCCESS BECAUSE I OVER CAME THE STREET LIFE

Neg.
1. OVERLOOKED BECAUSE I DONT I RATHER NOT TO HAVE THE LIGHT ON ME.
2. STILL DEALING WITH THE EVILS OF CHILDHOOD
3. INDECISIVENESS BECAUSE I SECOND GUESS MY JUDGEMENT

I GIVE A COUPLE MORE EXAMPLES OF SOME WORKSHEETS I MADE UP AND AT THE END I CLOSE WITH THE FOLLOWING:
“IN ORDER FOR US TO MAKE A CHANGE, WE HAVE TO CHANGE THE WAY WE THINK IT IS SAID: “ALL WHO SUCCEED GET OFF TO A BAD START, AND, PASS THROUGH MANY HEART BREAKING STRUGGLES BEFORE THEY ARRIVE”. 1. TO CHANGE OURSELVES/BEHAVIORS, WE HAVE TO START WITH OUR OWN BELIEFS. IF WE WANT TO BE SECCESSFUL WE HAVE TO BELIEVE WE CAN BE, AND ONLY AFTER THE THOUGHT TO CHANGE WE MUST TAKE ACTION, “ACTION IS WHAT UNITES EVERY GREAT SECCESS. ACTION IS WHAT PRODUCES RESULTS, KNOWLEDGE IS ONLY POTENTIAL POWER UNTIL IT COMES INTO THE HANDS OF SOMEONE WHO KNOWS HOW TO GET HIMSELF TO TAKE EFFECTIVE ACTION. ACTION IS POWER!!!”2. EVERYTHING IS WRITTEN SO EVERY EXPERIENCE IS FOR A REASON, SO WE MUST STRIVE FOR THE BEST WE CAN IN LIFE TO BE THE BEST WE CAN IN LIFE. LIFE IS WHAT WE MAKE IT. WELCOME TO ” THE PRINCIPLE OF SELF AWARENESS CLASS.” JERELL M. JACKSON

STEPPING INTO THIS I DIDNT KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT OR HOW IT WOULD CATCH TRACTION, WHAT I DID KNOW WAS I HAD TO DO IT, AND WITH THAT I KNEW THAT EVERYTHING WOULD FALL INTO THERE RESPECTIVE PLACES. ARMED WITH THAT, I DREW UP A DRAFT DETAILING WHAT MY VISION WAS FOR THIS CLASS ,AND I WASNT SURPRISED THAT THE PEOPLE I PRESENTED THE DRAFT TO GREATLY ACCEPTED IT AND WANTED TO PUT WEIGHT BEHIND IT… (WELL I WAS A LITTLE BIT SURPRISED).WITH THAT I HAVE A PERSON WHO IS WILLING TO HELP FURTHER WITH THE DEVELOPEMENT OF THIS CLASS. IAM GREATFUL AND I HAVE FAITH THAT THE ONES WHO TAKE THIS CLASS AND APPLY WHAT IT HAS TO OFFER WILL BE BETTER OFF THAN THEY WHERE, WITH TOOLS TO MAKE A DIFFERANCE AND BE SUCCESSFUL. THIS IS ONLY STEP FOR US TO BUILD US FOR WHATS AHEAD…
LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THIS CLASS AND IF YOU HAVE ANY USEFUL SUGGESTIONS OR COMMENTS HIT ME UP ON JPAY.COM

/////////////////// //////////////////// ///////////////////// ///////////////// ////////////

I NOTICED THAT IN ORDER TO HAVE MORE YOU HAVE TO DO MORE, YOU HAVE USE THE HATE OF OTHERS TO BOOST YOUR RUN TO YOUR GOALS AND ACHIEVE THE IMPOSSIBLE WHICH MAY BE PERCIEVED IN THE MINDS OF OTHERS, IN LIFE THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS AND ALL POSSIBILITIES START WITH THOUGHT AND AFTER THOUGHT COMES ACTIONS AND ACTION BRINGS POWER. REACH FOR MORE….. PEACE
