Appreciate Yourself

way of warrior front cover

Chapter 25

Appreciate Yourself, or You Won’t Be Appreciated

This is the most essential attitude one can have relative to living a sane and prosperous life. Think about this most carefully. Who is more important than you are? If you are not taking care of yourself to the extent that you want to take care of yourself, then how can you presume to take care of anyone or anything else except perhaps on a cursory level, which is at best a superficial mentality? There can be no one more important than you in the universe. There is no one more important than me in the universe. That is why I do not have difficulty in accepting you for what you are. Living thus, there is never a need for conflict. You have nothing that I really want that I cannot have for myself. If I think you can be of value to me, then I can proceed to celebrate my work and acknowledge you as having helped, and you will be that happier with our relationship and seek to do more for the project given to us as a gift from Heaven. If I am greedy, then you will withhold your beingness from me. I would prefer to have your gracious help and be able to say thank you with sincerity. It is most important to understand that what you are doing is merely an extension of the universe needing something done for reasons that you and I will never truly comprehend. Accept this profound gift of life with thanks and gratitude as an indication of due respect and admiration for yourself as being responsible for its earthly representation.

I Am Motivated

The following excerpt is from my forthcoming Volume II of Practicing Self-Revealization Acceptance.

I Am Motivated

I acknowledge and accept my strong desire and need for great accomplishment in all that I do to produce great works in good conscience. Without restriction or delay due to any means or misconceptions, I hereby declare that I am motivated and stay motivated to fulfill all of my desires for my work to be accomplished. With all that I desire to experience, regardless of circumstance, and with full acknowledgement of my abilities, I do not and I will not allow anyone or anything to interfere with my work. I will not permit any impediment to interrupt with my desire to finish my projects with integrity, sincerity, and masterful presentation of all good. Should times arise where or when I am unable to maintain focus on my ideals for accomplishment for any reason, I demand that I will be empowered by the Spirit of the Thing Itself, with the proper Self-Revealization Acceptance to rid myself of any form of delay, hesitation, or lack of motivation to accomplish my goals. Whatever may prohibit my energy or deter my focus from my work, including foolish, distracting, and meaningless thoughts, I immediately deny them authority and do so without restriction or delay. I accomplish my goals without stress, and my work ever flows with ease and grace. The Spirit of the Thing Itself so Named of any of my projects is continuously fostered and reinforced by the incredible authority of the Creative Power of the Universe and is constantly activated on my behalf, without interruption. As a result, I never need to sink into the morass of indifference mediocrity or depression. My creative energy flows through me without restriction, and I stay focused to each project thoroughly, timely, without attempting to do more than one project at the same time. I accept the magnificence of my accomplishments and I give wholehearted thanks to the Creative Power of the Universe, knowing that I will continue to remain focused at all times and by any means, including the repetition of this Self-Revealization Acceptance. Knowing true motivation as reality in my life, I produce ever more works of quality and attain levels of success previously not experienced. I thank the Creative Power of the Universe and the power and authority of the Spirit of the Thing Itself to envelope me with the wisdom, knowledge, understanding, and energy of the universe to accomplish all of my goals, without restriction or delay and to sustain me in perfect motivation.

Hanshi Kaufman on Questions Concerning the Age of the Universe, the Earth, and the Concept of Death


I’m debating with someone who claims to know how old the Earth, Universe is. Claiming 14 billion years. I told him nobody really knows; it’s all speculation, opinions, theories. I can appreciate science, scientists, the intellectual elite … But some things are not meant to be known, namely 3 things … 1 and 2 … The Universe, Earth, when were they created. 3 … What happens when you die. Insight please ???

Persons claiming to know 1 and 2 are just passing along what they’ve been told. I’m really open- minded, but bold claims to knowing something so infinite I feel almost insult my intelligence. Am I being dismissive or possibly ignorant to science ???


Any number of theories can only give speculative answers based on scientific investigation, or religious faith and belief to determine the age of the universe and the earth. I give credence to both because I prefer to be open-minded; however, there are certain things that have to be taken into consideration before a positive answer can be arrived at.

Scientific answers are limited by the extent that science investigation itself has revealed to those who concern themselves with such matters. The faith and belief idea comes from studying biblical references, arcane knowledge, and ancient cultures that suggest previous contact with other species.

If you take into consideration the scientific approach and the instruments that are used to determine vast distances in time and space, you can readily come to a mathematical conclusion that the universe is approximately 15 billion years old. I, personally, reject that notion because of my belief that there never was a beginning (or therefore, a presumptive ending). If in fact, anything is constant relative to that initial event, it would have to take the form of a permanent and constant beginning.

Biblically, if you count the years in Genesis up to the present, you come up with the Creationist notion that the world is 5777 years, starting from Adam and His alter ego, Eve. That idea is based on man’s perception of time and space.

Another idea, and one that holds for me as the possibility of reality, is that on the first day, God said, “Let there be light,” on the second day, third day, etc., up to, of course, the seventh day.

However, when thinking in the seven days of creation modality, it is essential that you do not restrict “day” to a humanized 24-hour cycle. In the creation perspective, one day of God’s time could easily be billions of years.

So, that leaves the great unanswered question of what and why are we here in the first place. And, as you know, God does not function through time and space, at least in the dimensions we understand or speculate about.

Deep study of the creation event brings about the need to study high-end Kabalistic meditation, and that’s another story altogether. Don’t touch it! Sometimes, I wish I never did. Kabalistic meditation, in my view, and this has nothing to do with Judaism, is the heaviest thing I have ever encountered more than Tao, Zen Buddhism, Hinduism, etc., and led me to the discovery of Self-Revealization Acceptance (I do not remember if you have read this), along with a total subjection of myself into the pit of insanity. (There, true confession. LOL)

Now, as far as death is concerned … to my thinking it is merely a transitional event in that your personal ideas prevail at the given instant of the experience. I am being vague for a particular reason in that it is impossible for ANYONE to know, and probably not even when it is encountered. It is easy to get confused when so many ideas about ‘death’ exist, and many of them are from so-called reliable sources. My own idea is that it is a massive orgasm of profound proportion—way beyond anything you have ever experienced, even when you may have shouted out, “Oh, God!” or perhaps your partner did. I am serious with this! The French even refer to the orgasm itself as “la petite morte,” little death.

Let me close with this:

Disciple: “Master, what happens when we die?’

Master: “Nothing! You don’t.”

Disciple: “We don’t?”

Master: “No. You go to sleep and wake up on the other side.”

Disciple: “What other side?”

Master: “That.”

Disciple: ”What’s ‘that?”

Master: “Exactly.”

The Way of the Modern Warrior

way of warrior front cover

It is better to take the easy way in rather than the easy way out.

When a person is confident in their endeavors, even though they may not be at a level of mastery, the road to mastery itself becomes easier to attain. When you have to struggle with the potential outcome of a situation, then you are not in control of your thoughts and desires. You do not have a perspective on proper conduct and, therefore, cannot visualize the intended outcome of your dreams. Even if you do not know where you want to go but have a desire for change, you are already at some place along that path. Understanding and realizing where you are is the first step toward moving to a new understanding of where you think you might want to be. Once you have that aspect of your life under your own personal guidance, you can readily seek assistance from others who will be sympathetic to your ideals. New opportunities will arise and you will be on your way again until, of course, you determine that that is not where you want to be either. Then you redefine your desires and a new direction appears. The easy way out is usually that used by losers who blame others for their paltry existence and complain that they do not have the ability to make their own decisions because of self-proclaimed infringements. They will then use the excuse that they don’t want to hurt anyone and so become self-denigrating martyrs. They can then deny themselves joy and pleasure while luxuriating in a miserable existence.

Hanshi Kaufman’s Ultimate Self-Defense Courses

book shto stik-page-0


Functional, Dependable and Realistic, Personal Self-Defense and Safety Consciousness Against Armed and Unarmed Attacks

Taught by World Renowned Grandmaster & Educator

Hanshi Stephen F. Kaufman

Hanshi Kaufman’s Guide to Ultimate Self-defense is a practical course of instruction geared for today’s society on how to execute definitive self-defense technique without fear or stress while conditioning the self to be aware of surroundings. Participants learn to develop personalized systems for their own well-being by not being restricted to exact procedures, all within the constraints of legality.

There are two phases to the full course, each taught separately.

Phase I begins with ideas and concepts of safety consciousness, going step-by-step through defenses against unarmed attacks (front, rear, sitting, stairwell, and elevator). Students also learn to use a cane and/or walking stick as an additional adjunct to fundamental training.

Phase II deals with armed attacks (sticks and clubs, knives and bottles, multiple assailants, and guns).The courses of instruction clearly detail appropriate methods to employ, including variations in technique, and stresses the survival mentality attitude that frees the will to act when necessary. This comprehensive course includes functional panic control and disabling techniques without the use of grappling. Designed to stop an attack, the courses do not rely on cosmetic or showy technique.

Available where YOU are. If you are interested in a Hanshi Kaufman seminar, contact me for details @hanshikaufman@gmail.com.
