Every day, the Warrior's Way.

Refuse To Be Drained And Depleted
By Dr. Sinclair Grey III

"Everyday you need to ask God to deliver you from people who settle for settling. That's right; people who settle for settling are simply content and have no aspirations for going higher. Don't worry about your circle decreasing because the more people around you who aren't about anything and don't want anything will drain you. I don't know about you but I refuse to associate with those who don't want anything out of... life. While you're moving and making things happen, they sit back and complain or criticize. To people like that, you have to throw up the peace sign and say 'see ya.'

In writing to the people of Corinth, the apostle Paul declared, "But as you excel in everything-in faith, in speech, in knowledge, and in all eagerness and in the love from us that is in you-make sure that you excel in this act of kindness too." Please don't miss this. Excellence ought to be the standard in everything you do. I want you to get this in your spirit - you can't beg people to have excellence. You can encourage them, but you can't force them. As I close this message, I urge to begin purging people from your life who simply settle for settling. Oh by the way, if you find yourself in the category of settling for settling, ask God to set you free and deliver you from that lifestyle." (Sept. 15, 2016)

Horse ridden by a warrior.



There are a trio of things to discuss. Starting with the last one, I learned it to be a fruitless task asking people who enjoy settling anything except getting the hell outa da way! If people like this are suddenly hit with a revelation, or a Saul experience leave them be, back away. Let them struggle to reform, to undo what they have become and done. The residue of their lives are theirs to clean. Their freedom comes not from God. That is a cop out plea-prayer. If they want freedom and deliverance let them follow the North Star, and deliver themselves out of bondage by killing their slave masters.


There is an ideology that serves Christian missionaries that has been the bane of our existence as indigenous peoples here on Turtle Island and Africa and other cultures that makes Western missionaries feel good, but disgusts the rest of us. It is the begging. Sinclair, you mentioned that one cannot beg another person to become excellent. In cold fact, many feel that is an effective technique. It is tried in addiction intervention.

As a man, a warrior trained it is a weak proposition. It breeds contempt in a thinking person's heart to hear weak-kneed approaches to salvation, healing, and restoration because acts of power are not based upon human sentimentality or pretense of masculinity or femininity. As a man or a woman there is, of course choice, but the Creator left us with options that open the soul to strength. If one is weak and weakened by the spirit of gossip and tearing down others is their game leave them to their consequences.

It is a warrior's way. It is the way Jesus taught as a man.


I have seen you over the years, Sinclair, tear yourself away from people who can only tear people apart. I've seen you at work and know how important it is to stand up to one's truth and act. As an observation your years of writing, teaching and helping people find their way has proven to be heartaches after heartaches because people, for the most part, are committed to their own demise. So, respecting their process you leave them to their deaths.

Your paragraph started saying, "Everyday you need to ask God to deliver you from people who settle for settling." That is step one. The next step is logic at its best. Don't ask no more. Walk away a step at a time. - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 9.16.16
