As you guys know, I am into powerlifting and strength training, and this dude has some interesting things to say. Pretty funny dude as well, if you see his video about naturally getting rid of symptoms of depression.
Fortify Your Blood Tribe Lock
I recently attended the wedding of a good friend of mine. Like most typical weddings there was angelic-type music, flowers and pedals scattered about and over 100 people dressed in the finest clothes they could afford were in attendance. Like I said, it was beautifulâ€¦ and typical.
If we are to continue down the typical path, how would we find this newlywed couple in 2, 5, 10 or perhaps even 50 years from now?
Well, most marriages typically donâ€™t last.
Here is how I see the story developingâ€¦ Two super sexy singles lock eyes at a upscale restaurant during â€œHappy Hourâ€ on a warm and sunny Friday in April. She is wearing makeup that costs more than most peopleâ€™s grocery shopping for a month, He hasnâ€™t been laid in months.
He approaches Her and offers to buy Her a low quality alcoholic beverage mixed with a sort of syrup substance named after a Caribbean Island, that costs about $9. She accepts the drink under the assumption that she is to proceed with smiles and giggles for the next 10 minutes, or until one party reveals their dark and dirty past a little too soon.
All goes smoothly and She accepts His invitation to His home (an apartment apparently inhabited by a man, but decorated with feminine amenity in mind) to have â€œcoffeeâ€ or sex.
They are in love.
For 6 months they meet each other after working at their middle management jobs for an insurance agency and Target, until he presents her with a ginormous diamond ring that heâ€™ll be paying off for the next 17 years.
Theyâ€™ll be married come February.
The wedding is, of course, in a churchâ€¦ although neither have attended service since receiving Confirmation in the 7th grade. She mistakenly calls the priest â€˜Misterâ€™.
Tens of thousand are spent to ensure a matching theme between the bridesmaidâ€™s red adornments and the blood dripping from the dead dude on the cross above at the alter. It is beautiful.
Grandparents in wheelchairs, alcoholic uncles and seductively dressed aunties hoping to find love that will last a lifetime, again, are in attendance. Gifts of dinner plates, picture frames and vacuum cleaners are presented.
Ahh, the elements of a perfect union.
If youâ€™re anything like the majority of adults living in the US, this setting and situation sounds familiarâ€¦ and so will its conclusion.
1 year post wedding, She changes her mind about their agreement not having children (so they can â€œtravelâ€) and realizes that at age 39 she can practically smell her eggs rotting. The stench is gut wrenching and her guilt for not fulfilling her maternal instinct is devastatingly strong. She NEEDS children now! Heâ€™s getting ready for their trip to Amsterdam (and banging his best friendâ€™s little sister).
She poses Him with an ultimatumâ€¦ Children or Divorce. He has no choice, â€œthis bitch is losing her mind!â€, he tells friends.
4 years later She has a daughter (who will repeat her choices and life cycle) out of wedlock with another stranger, and He is preparing for a long life of â€œfreedomâ€ (aka Loneliness).
The Importance Of A Strong Blood Tribe
As far as we have come we are the still the same. We may have more conveniences and choices than ever before but our deepest human needs and authentic desires have remained unchanged for tens of thousands of years.
According the Maslow in his human Hierarchy Of Needs model, the most basic of human needs beyond safety and security is that of Tribal Association. We need to belong. A strong Blood Tribe is the foundation for association as well as evolution and expression (having or raising children). Creative expression is also a result of the safety afforded by being a member of a strong Blood Tribe.
Your Blood Tribe also affords us safety and protection. Unlike the other â€œbeasts of the landâ€ that have eyes on the sides of their heads for 360 degree vision, primates were the first to have eyes in the front of their heads which allowed us to focus and concentrate on single objects but also limited our vision to a narrow scope. As a result of our limited vision, primates had to â€œband togetherâ€ or create tribes. As is often observed today with monkeys in the wild, they sit in circles with their backs to each other in order that each monkey could focus on one area in the 360 degree land scape offering surveillance and protection to the rest of the tribe.
This â€œbanding togetherâ€ has the tendency to forge trust and stronger relationships within the tribe. Each member places the entire tribe in the best interest of their heart.
As humans, we have retained this need for association self expression and protection.
The Importance of Commitment in a One on One Union
The foundation value in a Blood Tribe is commitment. If there is a lack of trust or commitment from any one of the members that is meant to â€œhave our backâ€ the entire infrastructure of the family is in jeopardy.
In nature the male and female counterparts are equal halves to all of Godâ€™s creations. Basically it takes both male and female qualities to merge in order that life can expand. For example, for a tree to come into existence (and continue to reproduce in its own right) a seed (male) must be inserted into the soil (female). To continueâ€¦ for electrical charges to exist there must be a positive (male) and a negative (female) charge; the computer you are reading this on is nothing more than a series of switches moving from on (male) or off (female). And of course for any animal to procreate there must be a male and female participating.
The vast difference between human beings and the other beasts of the land is that humans have the capacity and great primal desire for mental, emotional and spiritual evolution. So, where animals pair up to simply make baby animals, humans pair up to physically procreate but to continue in the evolving union that allows for the birth of higher qualities in character, wisdom and understanding.
â€œElliott, what the heck are you talking about?â€ â€“ Because we are so much more than mere flesh and bones, we have the capacity to create or harness unseen gifts and power! For example, we have discovered how to harness the power of electricity, which is completely intangible (itâ€™s like some magic energy juice that we figured out how to use). Like I mentioned before, electricity is a by product of the intermingling of positive and negative charges. Another great example is the use of magnetsâ€¦ positive and negative charges that create a VERY powerful intangible force, magnetism!
When human beings overcome the limitations of our flesh and ego, we are afforded the capacity to strengthen the â€œelectricity and magnetismâ€ between the positive (man) and negative (woman) forces between us. In the same fashion that electricity has the power to light an entire city and bring day into the night realm, the intangible forces between man and woman have the power to create and build a SUPER STRONG BLOOD TRIBE that has the capacity to not only bring light to a single city but to shed its light on the world!
The strength of the Blood Tribe may be responsible for some of the most powerful forces in the universe. Since human beings possess many of the qualities present in our Creator (â€œmade in the likeness and imageâ€) and since God is both male and female it is very clear that in order to fulfill our greatest capacities both male and female must be present to first bring forth (children for example) and cultivate creative strength.
Unity Within (beyond the flesh)
This may be considered moving off track for a moment, but bear with me. Many of the greatest thinkers, artists and contributors to ever live may have lived in separation from the opposite physical sex and did not procreate to form a Blood Tribe. But if you study their lives, they were often times so powerful that moving beyond the proliferation of flesh bodies, they created spiritual bodies with their hearts and minds.
For example, Michelangeloâ€™s physical act of painting the Sistine Chapel (action = male) was balanced with the rest, meditation and contemplation time (rest = female) that he is well known for valuing.
I may be delving a bit deep here but I wanted to make the point that we, like God, can also harbor the qualities of both male and female in order to create in absence of the opposite physical sexâ€¦ although this takes a highly evolved person to accomplish.
Prerequisites For A Strong Blood Tribe Lock
It is often said that â€œtwo halves make a wholeâ€, but as it relates to a strong Blood Tribe unionâ€¦ two wholes are needed to create a whole.
What I mean is that both partners must have an evolved enough â€œTribe of Oneâ€ that it will allow for the creation of a strong â€œBlood Tribeâ€.
For example, if the seed that is planted in the soil is still immature, no matter how fertile the soil is a tree will never grow. Likewise, if the soil that a mature seed is planted in is not fertile then a tree will never grow.
Each person must first be whole.
Each person must also harbor the same VALUES as the other. They may be whole, but if they ignore incompatibilities (because they are â€œin loveâ€), the union will not work. In Florida, palm trees grow in the sandâ€¦ the values of the palm tree, hot weather, hurricanes and sand provide the right conditions for the tree to grow, the values match. An oak tree will NOT grow in the sand.
If you value modesty yet you marry a woman who likes to dress provocatively (hey, thatâ€™s what caught your eye!), no matter how much you think you love her there will always be resentment which will lead to a weak â€œTribe Lockâ€.
I am not saying that you canâ€™t work these things out, but Iâ€™d invite you to ensure enough of the core values match up front before making a commitment.
Clarity, Commitment & Discipline
Surly youâ€™ve heard me site my CCD model for achievement. Well, with regards to choosing a Blood Mate and creating your Blood Tribe the same parameters apply. You must first be VERY clear about who you are and what your values are before getting married. When you have made a conscious choice (not out of â€œloveâ€, which is a fickle emotion) to partner with a person you must do everything in your power to serve this person and retain a strong â€œlockâ€ for insurance of a strong Blood Tribe.
Finally, you must discipline yourself to â€œre marryâ€ your wife / husband every day. By this I mean that you recommit to them in your words and actions, just like you originally did on the day of marriage. Just because Aunt Marcella is not holding your hands and reciting The Lords Prayer over your marriage, doesnâ€™t mean your now free to loosen the ties of your agreement.
Just like you are â€œborn againâ€ everyday, so is your marriage. Re-commit every day!
Marriage is IRRELEVANT!
Over 50% of marriages fail. Is this because marriage is an antiquated institute? Yes.
Marriage is antiquated and irrelevant today because the values associated with marriage have become irrelevant to our society.
Today, it is no longer relevant to have HONESTY, as is evident by many of the recent developments in the business and financial world.
It is no longer relevant to have LOYALTY, as is evident with all of â€œopen marriagesâ€ and infidelity that we observe in our modern world.
It is no longer relevant to develop the TENACITY associated with overcoming challenges and achievement, as is evident in our â€œeveryoneâ€™s a winnerâ€ society where every child is entitled to a trophy weather they worked hard to win or were lazy and fat, so lost.
It is no longer relevant to have CLARITY, COMMITMENT and especially DISCIPLINE as is evident in, well, everything!
I Am Not Trying To Save The World
Look, I am not some religious zealot claiming that the end of the world is near and everyone needs to get married and have children to stop Armageddon from erupting. I am NOT trying to save the world. The world is not meant for saving, just evolving. And as a believer in Christ, I am also a believer in Darwin. Survival of the fittest, evolution, is inevitable. Some versions of the human species are meant to evolve, grow and proliferateâ€¦ while others will become extinct due to an inability to adapt.
Although I will not stand in the way of evolution, I will share a message that may strengthen (or make fit) those who are looking to evolve.
If my message resonates with you, walk with me. If not, thatâ€™s fine too.
Our physical bodies may be unchanged for the past 10,000 years. No matter what you believe, it is clear that man is physically the same today as he was in prehistoric times. But we are changing, rapidly!
We have harnessed the â€œmagicâ€ to fly in the air and to instantly communicate across the globeâ€¦ but our primal needs are the same.
We need each other.
We need tribal association.
We need creative expression.
We need to evolve.
The strength of The Blood Tribe allows us to evolve.
A STRONG marriage creates a STRONG Blood Tribe.
Also, on Depression:
Ah, the Post-modern dating rituals. Captures it almost to a tee. I see my parents having similar problems. They do not share similar values. Great post Yakuza. It captures some themes I posted on in this topic:
http://www.happierabroad.com/forum/view ... hp?t=17083
That talk of male and female is just Taoist duality. The lack of honesty, loyalty, discipline, etc. comes from the post-modern acceptance of moral relativism. Nothing means anything and all values are abstract.
I think in the coming decades people will begin to realize the vacuousness of these ideas and reject them in favor of a new philosophy. One that says there's nothing wrong with accepting old fashioned beliefs. One that says there's no shame in being quaint and unhip.
With all this talk of tribalism, will you stop being a ronin and instead join a clan? My goal is to create a clan, become a shogun for my heirs. Here's a great website by another tribalist:
Join a clan? Join what clan?
In America, I am viewed as effeminate even though I can bench press 95 lb dumbbells for 8 reps continously and deadlift almost 3 times my weight at a max of 420 lbs. And even though I can kick the asses of most 6'3" guys, and hold my own against 6'3" 200 lb trained-in-martial arts fighters, somehow I am still effeminate.
This view is probably because I am height challenged at about 5'6" no shoes to 5'7" if we are talking wearing shoes.
Also I have long hair and only look good with long hair. They call me effeminate because I am an East Asian male. East Asian males in the USA are gay no matter what in the eyes of everyone.
Yet most men in all cultures and all continents have had long hair throughout history.
Also, since when were muscular guys with long hair effeminate? Are these phaggots calling Thor effeminate? Are they calling Beowulf effeminate? Are they calling samurai effeminate? Calling great warlords such as Genghis Khan, Guan Yu, Zhang Fei, Zhao Zi Long, Miyamoto Musashi, Sasaki Kojiro effeminate?
Interestingly, the gayest and most phaggot-like men who liked to poke each other in the buttocks have always had short hair: Greeks and Romans and they were clean shaven.
I do not shave and want to grow a proud and fierce goatee.
The point is I have no place in any country with anglosaxon white caucasians nor in any English speaking country, and I do not have a place in any country with non-anglosaxon caucasians either. Would a Russian caucasian guy be willing to call me comrade if I learned Russian and did my best to respect and learn their ways? No, they would more likely than not try to fight me. Also the corruption there is probably not worth it.
That website of yours is made by someone I can never relate to, mainly because he joined the US military and supports western imperialism. I was also going to join and was in training if only to prove that I have honor, but early on, I realized that I held political and philosophical views that were completely against what most Americans and western imperialists believe in, because at my very core, I am the very enemy they hate.
Fate ensured that I would not be able to join because of climate/weather-health problems. Probably a good thing as well or else something like Private Danny Chen would have happened except that the bullies/hazers/murderers would all be dead and not the other way around.
I cannot join any clan in East Asia either. I am viewed as rough or weird by most East Asians, too western, yet not very western because I am a practitioner of traditional Eastern martial arts, rough mainly because I powerlift and strength train and am not afraid to challenge people to fights. And I do not believe in filial piety, which automatically puts me on most Eastern peoples' shit list.
Basically I am someone who does not fit in anywhere in the world. Being a "ronin," lone wolf, lone ranger, whatever you wanna call it is the only option I have.
This world is divided irreconcilably between traditional and feminist, liberal and conservative, sheep and wolves, and between different races/ethnicities.
I am neither traditional nor feminist.
I am liberal, except I am pro-guns.
I am neither sheep nor wolf, but am a lone hawk.
I am of slightly mixed race and am of mixed ethnicity, enough to look somewhat strange to most other peoples of my dominant race/ethnicities -> East Asians/NE Asians with the bit of Ainu Japanese and bit of Dutch. And of course East Asian males are hated everywhere else.
I would be accepted based on looks in Northeast Asia, except that there, they also dislike height challenged people and I am still somewhat strange looking to them, and the environment, my aversion to pollution, my lifestyle, and my values would put me at odds with pretty much everyone in East Asia or NE Asia. I also do not like East Asian females nor most Asian females. Zero sexual attraction.
So in a nutshell I belong on a different planet.
Actually Yakuza, you look like my cousin. He's this long haired Asian guy, practices martial arts, travelled to China, Japan, UAE, going to India.
There's a lot to be learned from enemies you know. For example, Temujin and Jamukha.
It is unfortunate you weren't just born a few decades later. Globalization is acting as an equalizer for the East and West. People are beginning to realize how empty the prevailing culture is. Those dualities you listed, traditional and feminist, sheep and wolf, they are being transcended. I am not so much convinced you belong on another planet as in another time.
hey yakuza you forgot the altaic option:)
turkic folks are the definition of mixing.....and your traits will be more welcomed there. arrowshooting, wrestling, lifting are popular there.....take the chance, come to the wolfpack
I would except that I have incurable illnesses that worsen when in hot climates or hot+ humid climates and also in hot+dry climates. I can really only live in the Pacific Northwest, British Columbia, Alaska, Siberia/Far East Russia, Manchuria, Northern Japan/Hokkaido, or Scandinavia.
I am like Mr. Freeze. I do well or decently in cold weather and am fairly resistant. But any temperature above 23 degrees C is death to me.
I like the temperature to be 10 to 17 degrees C.
Okay, so you have a high barrier to entry. Some conditions were forced on you, some are matter of preference. It's a pretty bold statement to say there's no place for you in all human societies. We don't even know all human societies; there are still undiscovered tribes in the more remote corners of Earth. I'm just not convinced that there is literally no place for you. The barrier for entry may be high, but I'm sure it's out there, no matter how small or remote that clan or tribe is.
Was about to pass this over, since you claim to be different yet didn't reach out to someone who is different. All doubts aside, what 'clan' are you wanting him to join?
Passive aggressiveness is a sign of weakness.
That's completely missing the point. I have as a goal to attack modern intellectualism for being too pretentious and having unnecessarily high barriers to entry. Or are you just a faux-iconoclast in an age where controversy is no longer controversial? You're just lashing about wildly.
The answer to Yakuza is that there's no way to really tell behind a screen. It's necessary to actually go out in the world.
Never said that, huh?
