White Lotus System - The Learning Process

The Learning Mechanism for the White Lotus System of Unarmed Combat. This is in my own words, a structured approach to learning content in a way which enables the same level of depth of understanding as had by the system's founder. This process of learning is very in-depth, but also very complete. People who are not exposed to the system may not understand why it would be important to have a complete level of understanding in any particular aspect of the system's course. Essentially, the idea around having a complete level of understanding is something which removes doubt about the subject matter in question, in a very real way.

Stepping away from a martial arts subject matter, and applying the same concept to any other subject yields the same question. Why would you want a complete level of understanding in your subject matter? The answer is the same, to remove any doubt you may have. This may not always dawn on people as to why this would be important, but perhaps when you apply a level of duress to your job, such as the risk of personal safety or the safety of others... the removal of doubt would be a critical component to your success.

Would you want an EMS worker stumbling over how to use the defibrillator? What about a doctor not knowing which side to cut open to get at your liver? Or how about a person who disarms bombs? I think knowing the different components, and different combination's of those components would be really important before they go ahead and cut that wire.

Well when you're life is on the line, doubts are not something you want surfacing. It is for this reason, and this reason alone that an in-depth learning mechanism was created by the White Lotus System's founder. This learning process ensures that the same mental states of certainty, and emotional security are replicated to others wanting to acquire the same level of skill.

An update on Mastery

After the long weekend (Canadian Thanksgiving), the family has left, and life settles back down. It's now early in the morning, and I have one more day before heading back to work. It's in these wee hours that I contemplate my progress towards mastering in various ways.

I have taken it upon myself to master essentially three core ideas or subjects in this life, with minor's in other subjects if you will:


1 - Kung Fu / White Lotus System of Martial arts - the most comprehensive martial arts studies in the world. Not just a slogan, but literally a reality based truth. This system of training brings a level of discipline to the art unlike anything I've been exposed to... and I'm an avid researcher. I've personally been apart of the system, training and understanding for over five years now, and just starting to get out of the learning curve. The growth at this point is exponential, and worth the wait. Mastery of this is in sight, and a clear path has been paved by well educated and responsible instructors.

2 - Content Writer - originally I would have put author / writer of novels (The 7th Journey), however due to my frequent work on various websites such as,, or - I have decided to broaden my perspective. Although writing is the primary vehicle, it's truly the desire to communicate thought provoking concepts which really excites me. I really enjoy understanding new models, theories, and applying them in a real way. Once they work, I share them. If they don't, they are discarded. This weeding out process has helped me create a very structured and unique view of reality which works very well for me. I often think that if more people approached life in such a balanced manor... a mixture of introspective, and outward expression, that life on this planet would be a much different thing.

3 - Technology / Business - over the years, I have spent the majority of my time in this field. From a very young age, I was taking computers apart, putting them back together, and making them better. It was and continues to be a great passion of mine. I'm a builder of systems. I like to create systems, optimize them, make them efficient and well oiled... then move on. From there, I like to learn new ways of putting systems together, and creating more efficient and effective platforms for development. The business aspects of this should be obvious, as working in such a manor, combined with my communications abilities have allowed me a great opportunity to combine two talents / joys and experience a very lucrative career in Information Technology. For how much longer? I'm not sure, but for now I'm enjoying the process.


4 - Guitar/Music - if there was one thing that I wish I could have spent more time on over the years, it's this. I've often wondered why I've had such opportunity to learn guitar in my time, yet my other passions have pulled me away. I have a guitar in my living room, and a father that has been working with me to teach me guitar for years, yet I've only picked up the basics. It's a shame, as he's very talented, and although we do jam together, I feel that his skill largely trumps mine, and I continue to feel like a beginner. I have played with other people at times, and I notice I do have some more skill than they at times, but still... the passion or the drive for it doesn't seem to be there as much as other things.

5 - Graphic Arts - A passion that I also had as a youth. Similarly with many other children, I was a huge (and still am) fan of comic books, and drew identical copies of every Superman image I could get my hands on. I was pretty good at that back then, but somewhere around highschool, I made a choice that it's not going to serve me from a financial point of view and so I stopped. Perhaps this is also something I'll pick up in my winter years.

And lastly... the greatest overarching subject, which I don't believe can be mastered... is the art of Self Improvement / Self Development. Without this principle drive, none of the above list is possible. This is what has driven me to research as much as I have over the years, and what continues to fuel my ambitions above. I don't think it can be put into it's own category, because really, when are we not working to improve ourselves? It's almost like the ebb and flow of the ocean, it is always there, pulling us back, pushing us forward... forever calling for us to change. It's up to us to choose if that's a change for our betterment or not, but it's a constant call to act. This is perhaps my greatest passion, which manifests into the very specific categories above. But without it... I wouldn't be who I am today. What does your list look like?

Thanks for reading.

Practical Mastery™ Practitioner Training

Interesting... the world is seeing many new mastery type training courses appear. Much of it seems to be coming via channeled content. I've added many of these items to the website out of interest to those who are seeking further, structured training. I do not endorse the use of these training methods, I'm just offering them as a choice... and to perhaps get you thinking. Thanks.


Practical Mastery™ Practitioner Training

It is very hard to bring in a healing modality in a pristine way with integrity on Gaia due to the state of mass consciousness and to the ego minds and personalities of people on earth – even very highly evolved beings. The energies around Practical Mastery™ are a sacred trust from the Creator to humanity. The Creator has assigned the Trinity Council of Light to work with Bill Austin on downloading the activations and gifts he holds for the planet. All of the work around Practical Mastery™ and the Mastery Sequences™ for Enlightenment is overseen by the Trinity Council of Light.
For a while Bill Austin has felt drawn to teach Practical Mastery™ but the concepts around Practical Mastery™ are so easy that it seemed silly to make people fly hundreds of miles for a two or three day class. When Bill asked the Trinity Council of Light for the easiest, most effective way to train people in Practical Mastery™ what they showed him is that he could attune practitioners to transmit all of the Practical Mastery sessions to themselves and others and that the Trinity Council of Light could create a multidimensional contract that would empower the Trinity Council of Light to block any transmissions of the frequencies from Practical Mastery™ that had the potential to lower the light or love quotient of any sentient being including the practitioner. This agreement was named the Insurance Policy Template.
Basically the decision to become a Practical Mastery™ practitioner creates a sacred covenant between you and the Trinity Council of Light. In order to insure that these sacred energies are not misused, every person applying to become a practitioner is required to energetically view a calibrated image that is imprinted with the energies of the Insurance Policy Template and a READ ONLY version of the attunement to be able to transmit the energies from Practical Mastery™ to yourself and others (see link below) BEFORE they are attuned as a Practical Mastery™ Practitioner.

Mastery Begins with Excitement

On the journey towards mastery, how does one begin? Essentially mastery itself can be taken in many contexts. From a particular subject matter's point of view, or in a wider context... mastery of your life itself. But how does one begin? The easiest way to start is to follow your excitement. As you follow your excitement, it will lead you to further excitement, and from there... further excitement. The emotional experience of excitement is one of the highest vibrational frequencies that we have access to. When in this mode of frequency, you will attract to yourself the subjects, people, places, and events which will lead you to your self mastery. The depth that you experience in these subjects are relative to how excited you are about the topic. As you experience more depth, you are exploring the endless depths of yourself. It is here that mastery begins. Enjoy the video.

White Lotus System - Striking / Blocking Workshop Completed

This weekend I just completed the White Lotus System Striking / Blocking Workshop. There was 7 days scheduled, totaling about 35 hours of training. Unfortunately, due to a sudden and fairly serious bout of bronchitis I was unable to attend 2 out of the 7 days.

The workshop itself was excellent. I have often considered discipline one of my main themes in this life experience, and with the White Lotus system, it allows me to express and truly focus on discipline from a mental, emotional, and physical point of view. It's the total package essentially.

White Lotus is the most comprehensive martial arts study in the world, and in fact, probably the most comprehensive study in terms of alignment of your inner and outer worlds. I have enjoyed the experience for nearly 5 years now, and will continue to enjoy it for years to come. I am thankful for having met Chris Chen, who introduced me into the system with a simple sentence "Do you wanna learn kung fu?" And of course, the answer was an immediate, and spontaneous YES.

What is meant of us in life, is meant for us... and this experience was what I was looking for, and so it is... the journey continues.

A Warning from Tony Robbins

Tony Robbins rarely speaks about the state of financial or political affairs, but considering the circle of friends he has... and the information he has access to... this is worth a listen.

Home with God, in a life that never ends.

I recently began re-reading Home with God - in a life that never ends, by Neale Donald Walsch. This book should be recommended reading for anyone going through the grieving process... if you've recently lost someone you love, or anyone curious about the life/death process.

I personally love reading materials such as this, as it tells the mechanics of this process in a very plain and simple way for anyone to understand. As it often is with the Conversations with God books, you personally feel like you're having a conversation with your higher self, or some higher being, whatever you'd like to call it. Either way, you get the impression that the dialogue captured between Neale and this entity is a special one indeed. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in astral dynamics.


White Lotus System - Striking Techniques Workshop

The WLS (White Lotus System) Striking Workshop is coming up next week. I have just come back from San Francisco, California on business and as a result missed the last workshop. I'll be working with Brian K. Leishman via the WLS Skype service to catchup in preparation for the week long endurance session.

This combined with some catchup sessions with Chris Chen (Master Instructor) will hopefully prep me enough for the sessions. I will be dedicating more time this week to catch up on White Lotus work, as I haven't had time to do so recently.

The new role I have at work has been taking up much of my time and energy recently, as management requires much more awareness then when I was working as an Analyst. But the new role is fascinating, and exciting, so I'll work towards balancing out as I normally do.

The weeks ahead are going to be action packed for me, so we'll see what comes next.

Further Down The Rabbit Hole

The world is a place of lessons, learning, and application. It is a world that shows us abundance, and in this world we perceive mainly lack. In this world our beliefs shape our destiny, our perception, and our experience. So little attention is paid to the great "shaper" of reality, our system of beliefs. It is from there that our next thought arises, from there our next words are born, and from there our actions are experienced.

What if your beliefs aren’t your own? What then?

The World As Seen Through My Eyes

The world seen through my eyes is a wonderful place. A world of remembering, experiences and adventure, with constant opportunity for growth. Even the most mundane moments, the most simple tasks, the most challenging of circumstance can be your best ally in your quest for enlightenment. The most difficult of people, the most trying of times, the most inconvenient requests of service are all teaching you something about yourself... and are the best ways to advance.

The most joyous of practice can be your way, the labours of love, music, martial arts, dance, writing, service for your fellow man, and mastering your mind through deliberate intent is the Tao of life.

Stay Tuned for thought provoking concepts.

A Simple Concept

A simple concept can have profound implications on your life. If you believe the concept, then it means something very specific in your life. If you don't believe in the concept, then your experience will be something completely different. There are many such simple concepts which have a profound influence on your behaviours as you proceed throughout your journey. The concept/question in focus today is this - "Are you a body with a soul, or a soul with a body?"

If you are a body with a soul, then I would argue that you are among the masses of the world, who on some level believe that they may be spiritual in nature, however because they cannot prove it definitively, it is dismissed. People with this mentality have a much easier time buying into the idea of being separate and apart from the human, cat, dog, tree, air or universe around them. They see it all as separate and apart, instead of understanding the truth from a very scientific, and also spiritual sense that we are all one. People that are able to dismiss their spiritual side seem to have an easier time with stuff like... oh... back stabbing, jealousy, anger, causing pain, finding pleasure in the pain of others... etc. Now it doesn't mean that they are prone to these behaviours, but they have a much easier time rationalizing them if they need to. Why? Because they lack the awareness and ability to see their connection to all of life, to all of existence. They fail to perceive that they are no more powerful than another person, yet they struggle to experience this power over others, never realizing that their efforts are merely an illusion.

These people who have bought into the idea that they are merely a body, that may or may not have a soul are very mechanical in nature. They believe the body, as their temple, is simply a machine with no function other than to maintain the beats of their heart, and once that stops... it's all done. I have met many individuals such as this, and they believe as a result that after death, their body simply rots in the ground... and life as they know it is complete. Their consciousness ceases to exist. Game over.

Those who have bought into the idea that "they are a soul with a body" have a completely different experience in life. You would not be able to differentiate the two types of people in a lineup, but you would most certainly see it in the way they live their lives. Someone who believes they are a soul with a body believe that they are spiritual beings, and are having a human experience. The implications of this are huge. That means that they automatically believe in things like reincarnation, where their soul lives on and experiences other bodies and other lives... it can also mean that they believe that they are now having a human experience, but are open to the idea of having a dolphin experience in their next life. They have no imposed limitations on themselves in that sense, because they are not attached to their body per se. The bodies are simply viewed as vehicles to expand their consciousness in this life, and thus are treated with the respect they deserve as well respected vessels.

As a grand and all powerful SOUL having a human experience by way of manifestation within a human bodily form, all of a sudden new abilities are open to you, new ways of discerning, new thoughts, new ideas, new perspectives are all open to you. New ways to view others will be available, as you see your cousin or brothers also having a human experience. Compassion opens up, and the seeds of unconditional love have been planted. A life time of this perspective will yield a soul who has healed the world.
