Bruce Lee

“Every morning like a scholar at his first class I prepare a blank mind for the day to write upon.The mind must be emancipated from old habits, prejudices, restrictive thought processes and even ordinary thought itself.The more aware you become, the more you shed from day to day what you have learned so that your mind is always fresh and uncontaminated by previous conditioning.Conditioning obstructs our view of reality. We do not see it in its suchness because of our indoctrination, crooked and twisted.A conditioned mind is never a free mind. Wipe away and dissolve all its experience and be “born afresh”.The unconditioned mind intuits truth.Truth comes when your mind and heart are purged of all sense of striving and you are no longer trying to become somebody; it is there when the mind is very quiet, listening timelessly to everything.”~ Bruce Lee

Ah yes, Bruce Lee. Another of those we love. Too soon gone from us. “Be like water,” he said. And so we should, flow around the rocks, the hurdles, the fallen in our way. Accept what is, and just flow on.

that being Time. Time, of itself doesn’t seem to much care and it comes and goes as it pleases, mocking the cries of all earthly creatures. In the photo, not the clock of Time, but the mirror of time. Look into it and see the past and the present at once. Alas, it will not allow a glimpse of the future.
