Day 25 of 30 Days of Amazing
Be Like Water My Friends
One of Bruce Lee’s famous philosophies is “Empty your mind; be formless, shapeless like water. Put water in a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”
As we reach various peaks in our lives, we will have to empty our minds. We will have to let go of what we know and become students over and over again. Insight that we learned in our teen years may not be able to assist us in our 20’s and 30’s, so we will have to learn many new things. In order for this to happen, we must constantly empty our minds. We must not be attached to old methods that cannot solve new problems.
Our lives can be so fulfilling when we release things that tend to keep us stiff. The things that don’t allow us to grow and adapt to new ways of living a more fulfilled life should be released. We have to be like water so our lives are able to flow like the rivers into the ocean of prosperity. Be like water, my friends. Become all that you can be by letting go of old methods that don’t allow you to take shape into a future of blessings.
