Letters of the Dragon
I’ve been on a journey to read as much about Mindfulness as I can as I enter a phase of re-inventing myself, as I pursue one of my passions to become a Mindful teacher. I just finished reading a book called “Letters of the Dragon” by Bruce Lee. These are personal letters that were written by Bruce and has insight to his inner thinking. I found it extremely interesting and enlightening as I’m able to see the personal side of an amazing man.
“Nothing in the world is more yielding and softer than water; yet it penetrates the hardest. Insubstantial, it enters where no room is. It is so fine that it is impossible to grasp a handful of it; striket it, yet it does not suffer hurt; stab it, and it is not wounded. – Bruce Lee
If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you like to win but think you can’t
It is almost certain you won’t
If you think you will lose, you are lost.
For out of the world we find success BEGINS with a fellow’s WILL…..
It’s all in the state of mind.
If you think you’re outclassed, you are.
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go to
The stronger or faster man.
But sooner or later the man
Who wins is the man
WHO THINKS HE CAN!
“A true spiritual teacher does not have anything to teach in the conventional sense of the word, does not have anything to give or add to you, such as new information, beliefs, or rules of conduct. The only function of such a teacher is to help you remove that which separates you from the truth of who you already are and what you already know in the depth of your being” – Eckhart Tolle
