The Lesson of Water

Bruce Lee said, “You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.”

Imagine yourself as water. It is completely non-resistant, and keeps going regardless as to what obstacle is presented. Even a boulder placed in its path will not stop its flow. Water always finds a way to continue moving and flowing. It goes over, around, underneath, between and anywhere it can find a pathway. It simply continues flowing no matter what. If anything stays in the path of water for too long, eventually the flow of the water will wear it away. There is a lesson in this for the astute and attentive mind.

So, my encouragement for you today is to keep flowing, no matter what challenges come along your path. As you remain steadfast eventually, you will move away whatever is in your way. Remain shapeless and formless like water and become who you choose to be. 

Be blessed!

Peace, Love, and Light
