Whether liquid, solid, or vapor what can resist water? In a word, nothing! There is much to be learned simply by observing water. Much that can be applied to our lives. I have mentioned in a previous post how my ultimate inspiration JESUS said “I am the living water” and how another inspiration of mine Bruce Lee said “be water my friend”. Well, I would like to share a quote with you from another person who inspired me.

FROM WATER TO ICE A FLEX FIST BOXING CONCEPT

 



LAO TSE’S THOUGHTS ON WATER

Nothing in the world is as soft and yielding as water. Yet for dissolving the hard and inflexible, nothing can surpass it. The soft overcomes the hard, the gentle overcomes the rigid.

Everyone knows this is true, but few put it into practice. Therefore the Master remains serene in the midst of sorrow. Evil cannot enter his heart. Because he has given up helping, he is the people’s greatest help. True words seem paradoxical. -Lao Tse-

I would like to add a little more insight into what Lao Tse means when he says “because he has given up helping, he is the people’s greatest help”. When we think of helping someone most times we think of putting forth effort. For many, to help does not come natural it is something that they have to remind or force themselves to do, which requires effort. However, when you think in terms of water, ask yourself where is the effort in water?

 



There is none, water is effort-LESS. We will become the “greatest” help when our help to humanity is effortless. This requires wisdom. The wisdom to know that there are systems of oppression in place that have broken the backbone of children and families everywhere! Once you become aware of and  acknowledge this fact, compassion should be automatic. Then whatever you can offer to uplift, inspire, inform, and protect children and families should be given freely and effortlessly.  Just how water flows, and changes from one form to the next effortlessly, so you should live your life.

 

 



This is a big part of the meaning of the Shu Ha Ri Do symbol. This is how I live. If it inspires you I encourage you to walk the path with me. Please feel free to browse the many articles I written on this blog there is so much powerful information that I share here. It is my hope that I have inspired some. Godspeed in your quest for self mastery under the Kingdom of Heaven…

WATER IS ALWAYS CORRECT! PURSUING SELF MASTERY? READ AND COMPREHEND THIS!

Greetings everyone, in my book “Harness the Power Within and Without” I cover Shu Ha Ri Do concepts for self mastery under the Kingdom of Heaven. Below is a powerful excerpt from that book. It is my hope that this article inspires you in your journey.

“FROM HARNESS THE POWER WITHIN AND WITHOUT”: In the Shu Ha Ri Do Symbol the body is represented by water. What are the attributes of water? Its calm, it’s cool. However based on the stimulus it can flow rhythmically or crash violently, water can be vaporous like steam or

solid like ice. Its versatile it reacts instantly, overtime it will dissolve anything its perfect. To quote the ultimate inspiration in my life Jesus said he is the living water. To quote another major inspiration in my life Bruce Lee said we should be like water, be like water indeed, when faced with any challenge

in life reacting with sound judgment should be your goal. At times the body could be spurred into action quite impulsively, like when in a verbal or physical confrontation. This is when mistakes, sometimes costly ones are made. What spurred you into action? Your mind of course, the good thing about the body’s relation to water is that it reacts to stimulus the bad thing can be just that, it reacts to a stimulus.

What type of reaction depends on the morals, ethics, values, and condition response patterns established in our minds.

We are accountable for what we do through our bodies it starts with how we think. Thinking before reacting is a big part of being wise. This is what I mean when I say “WISDOM BEFORE COMBAT”. 

In “Harness the Power Within and Without” I go into more detail about the mind and it’s influence on the body. Feel free to visit the book page on amazon to read more about “Harness the Power Within and Without”.
