In martial arts, dō means the path or the way, and even the way of nature and/or the ideal way to live one’s life. This is the philosophical side of martial arts that has always intrigued and captivated me.
We do not always do what is best for ourselves. Sometimes, we listen to the wrong voices. But we should listen to our bodies. We should even listen to what we say. Keeping your promises is important. It is a key to remaining free from the tyrant who tells so many lies.
Finding a way is the crowning element of SERE Training. It means you are taking control of your life. You are making your own decisions. You are prioritizing what is best for you and your family. You are Executing every concept of the Warcloud Elite System thus far.
Finding a way means you are justifying doing what is hard. You are giving in. You are surrendering to something greater. You are taking the high ground.
Finding a way is an active process.
An individual who sets out upon the Warpath should know that it takes deliberate action to progress along it.
– The Code of Conduct
No, Victory is not achieved by accident. You are going to have to choose to move on, progress, and fight.
Finding a way will help you deal with hardest things a person can go through:
- Combating addiction
- Dealing with the loss of a loved one
- Resisting suicide and self destruction
Finding a way does not mean you avoid these issues. Do not tell a different story about reality. Rather you are enabled to find a way out of toxic relationships, find a way out of patterns of behavior and predictable patterns, and avoid tyrannical tendencies.
You have decided that there is no other way. The enemy cannot be negotiated with – they want to kill you. So you must fight.
