There’s a pretty common theme in a few martial arts movies.
Not the “ninja vs. demons” kind or the “martial artist superhero that kills everybody” kind.
The “coming of age” kind.
There’s usually a point where the main character understands the REAL reason for learning how to fight.
So you don’t have to.
It’s long been known that “smart” criminals (the ones who are careful when they choose their crimes so they don’t get caught) tend to “case the joint” before they commit the crime.
Maybe the drive around a neighborhood, and find a house that doesn’t have an alarm, and an old door whose lock will be easy to get through.
Street criminals who make their living from theft also watch people very carefully.
The last thing they want is to have their “victim” chase them down and beat the crap out of them.
So they purposely find weak victims.
Exactly how lions pick the weakest of the herd to chase.
This “strategy” is pretty common among all animals.
“We” want to get the biggest return for the lowest cost.
Lions chase weak zebras, criminals stalk weak people, etc.
Psychologists tell us that one out of every 25 people is a sociopath.
Given that most of us encounter HUNDREDS of people a day, that means that each and every day, we cross paths with SEVERAL sociopaths.
This can be VERY DANGEROUS if you’re giving off the “wrong” energy.
Energy that indicates a less than robust “inner frame.”
Unfortunately, if we just want to be left alone, there’s no guarantee the world is going to comply with our wishes.
If you WANT to be left alone, you’ve got to project “leave me alone” energy.
Paradoxically, if you are THINKING “leave me alone” thoughts, you are PROJECTING the OPPOSITE energy.
Luckily, with a little practice, you can shift your internal “polarity” so you can project the RIGHT energy.
And just as paradoxically, the inner thoughts that lead to “leave me alone” energy are thoughts they say, “This is MY world, and I can do as I please.”
