"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.”
Be Like Water
'Be like water' is a teaching from the ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu (Taoism) and which became famous in our Western society when Bruce Lee openly shared it in an interview, in which he explained to origin of Jeet Kune Do.
It embraces the idea that the universe is ever-changing, and most things, if not everything, is more complex than our minds can comprehend, a more fruitful approach to life, would be one that is flexible, tangible, that enables us to flow along... like water.
Bruce realized that human often leans too much towards control, making us inhuman. This is why he stepped away from the crystalized forms of martial arts in order to create a new intuitive form (Jeet Kune Do). When thoroughly training yourself to find & trust your instincts, you will become like water. Adaptable to any shape or situation and with the potential to strike hard.
In the end, that is the goal in both my coaching and intuitive experiences, to liberate you & help you fully express yourself in your own & authentic way in every aspect of your life!
