Be Water My Friend meaning for life
“Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless - like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle, 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
An empty mind is ready for anything; when you have this sort of beginner's mind, you can be totally alive in the moment. If you have an empty mind you can adjust, adapt, evolve, flow, survive, and thrive in any situation life tosses your way. Just as water can thrive in a bottle or teapot, so can you with a clear zen mind that is empty, which allows you to flow with any situation. Be having an open mind you can adapt and flow when you need to and take action when that is required. Whatever the situation requires you are able to act perfectly because you are ready and able to adjust accordingly. You do not let the ego take over and create a very rigid self, as opposed to a vast self which is able to be a peak performer in all situations places.
