You might have noticed that the name of this blog, formerly known as Spiritual Warrior Scholar, has changed. The Eclectic Method now stands in its place. Why did I change the name, and what does the word ‘eclectic’ even mean?
Well, I came across the word not too long ago. I’ll give you the dictionary.com definition I think best describes it: not following any one system, as of philosophy, medicine, etc., but selecting and using what are considered the best elements of all systems. I think that is the best possible defintion of what I do here on this site. I’m eclectic. Spiritual Warrior Scholar was cool, but Eclectic Method? Woah. That just sounds so much better.
I take the best from what I read, and I use it in my life and then I share it here. I take what I learn from the martial arts, sushi and art and use those principles to navigate this wonderful, crazy human experience. I have no one teacher or one way that I subject myself to. I keep an open mind and I learn from whichever source presents itself to me. Do I believe everything that I read or that I’m told? Of course not! What I do is take the best from everything I come across and then weave it into my life methods. That is why I decided to change the site’s name.
I’d also like to announce that I have recently passed my certification exam from the National Academy of Sports Medicine for personal training. So expect to see more health and fitness related content on the site. I decided to earn my personal trainer certification because I want health, fitness and exercise to always be a part of my life so I decided to learn from the experts, and I think that training people would be a very rewarding experience.
I’ve a long way to go, but I’m getting somewhere. I must persevere and put in the work. Thats what its all about. This is my eclectic method, and I share it in hopes that it helps you along your own way.
