Quote: “Be like water…”

​Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and 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

Walk of Peace

I walk my path freely

Fear of lies quenched beneath me

Seen through heart of tone

Monday Quote #1

Understand me. I’m not like an ordinary world. I have my madness, I live in another dimension and I do not have time for things that have no soul.

– Charles Bukowski

After the Earthquake

Earthquake rattles bones
Feeling rounds of aftershocks
In pain and uncertainty
How to face revolvers of old,
