BRUCE LEE

 

This is my humble tribute to the great philosopher, fighter, and legendary dragon - Bruce Lee. (November 27, 1940 – July 20, 1973 - age 32) Respect, rest, peace.

Bruce Lee’s philosophies have inspired millions of people the world over. He was a diligent journaler and made copious notes on his thoughts and ideas on how to live life to its fullest as well as on his martial expression. Bruce Lee also lived his philosophies believing that philosophies are meant to be applied not just pondered.

Be Water, My Friend. Empty your mind. Be formless, shapeless, like water. You put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle. You put it into a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

Always be yourself; express yourself; have faith in yourself. When I look around, I always learn something and that is to be always yourself, and to express yourself, to have faith in yourself. Do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it. Start from the very root of your being, which is “how can I be me?

Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one.
— Bruce Lee

Bruce Lee created the above symbol as a representation of the culmination of his own self cultivation. This symbol is the final in a series of four that show this progression. The stages of cultivation are:

1.     Partiality: The Running to Extremes

2.     Fluidity: The Two Halves of One Whole

3.     Emptiness: The Formless Form

4.     Jeet Kune Do

Research your own experience. Absorb what is useful. Reject what is useless. Add what is essentially your own.
— Bruce Lee
The height of cultivation should move toward simplicity. The process to simplify is like a sculptor who continuously chisels away all the inessentials until he creates a master piece.
— Bruce Lee
Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless like water. You put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle. You put it into a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.
