It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”

Beauty and terror

Just keep going

No feeling is final”

“Every one of us is called upon, perhaps many times, to start a new life.

A frightening diagnosis, a marriage, a move, loss of a job… .

And onward full-tilt we go,

pitched and wrecked and absurdly resolute,

driven in spite of everything to make good on a new shore.

To be hopeful,

to embrace one possibility after another-that is surely the basic instinct… .

Crying out: High tide! Time to move out into the glorious debris.

Time to take this life for what it is.”

“Be like water making its way through cracks.

 

Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it.

If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water.

If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup.

You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle.

You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot.

 

Now, water can flow or it can crash.

 

Be water, my friend.”

 

[ Bruce Lee née Lee Jun-fan ]
