Principle of War

“There is only on principle of war and that’s this: hit the other fellow as quick as you can, and as hard as you can, where it hurts him most, when he ain’t lookin’!” – –

Sir William Slim, 1956

In order for avoidance to work and protect you from becoming prey, you must encompass the threat in your reality.  What does that mean, exactly?  How you perceive the world around you is your reality.  Reality is a habitual, persistent thing you have built into the system over time, based on personal experience, belief systems, etc.  According to your reality, your mind will filter out data it deems unimportant so that it never comes up on the radar, i.e. the screen of your conscious mind.  It has to operate this way, because you would literally be bombarded and overloaded with sensory data.  This can be terribly disadvantageous when it comes to perceiving a threat before it is upon you, especially if you have no idea a threat exists.  Being on autopilot all the time steals precious time you have to perceive and react to a threat, which is why I am always harping about awareness skills.  This may require you to modify your belief system, and educate yourself about the nature of the world, which can be a difficult process.  Nevertheless, it is necessary for survival because the world is NOT a safe place.  Go out to the FBI website and peruse violent crime statistics at http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/cius2008/index.html, and you know what I am saying is true.  Evolution already did a beautiful job in transforming you into a sophisticated organism that truly is the superior predator in the landscape.  All you have to do is unlock your latent abilities to protect you from other predators of your own kind!   Begin developing sensory acuity to perceive more.  Educate yourself on the three C’s—Criminals, Crazies and Crusaders and gain an understanding on how they operate.  Open up your reality, and nine times out of ten, your prepared mind is going to keep you out of trouble and winning, without the fight.

“A warrior is on permanent guard against the roughness of human behavior.  A warrior is magical and ruthless, a maverick with the most refined taste and manners, whose worldly task is to sharpen, yet disguise, his cutting edge so that no one would be able to suspect his ruthlessness.”
