Dear Readers and my loved followers,
Water constitutes of over 60% of you and me. Yes it is 60 % of our body weight. No wonder water retention in the body makes you swell and sluggish. Water is one of the 5 elements of nature (prakriti) which can neither be created or destroyed. Water is the element of ras the element of taste which creates life . Water is the 4th element preceded by space, air, fire and followed by earth completing the 5 gross elements. Today I want you to self reflect and read the following quote by Bruce Lee twice before you go to the later half of this post which is self explanatory.
“Be Water, My Friend.
Empty your mind.
Be formless, shapeless, like water.
You put water into a cup, it becomes the cup.
You put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle.
You put it into a teapot, it becomes the teapot.
Now water can flow or it can crash.
Be water, my friend.”
– Bruce Lee
HOW DOES THIS WORK ?
I am certain now you can realize the potential of water. So next time all you have to do is remember to “BE LIKE WATER” and all your disturbances shall resolve. You can see your true self only in calm water and not in a turbulent one.
Hope this helps, and when it does do let me know in the comments below. Cheers to a glass of water but remember to drink mindfully.
Happiness and sunshine
