"Flow in the living moment. — We are always in a process of becoming and nothing is fixed. Have no rigid system in you, and you’ll be flexible to change with the ever changing. Open yourself and flow, my friend. Flow in the total openness of the living moment. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Moving, be like water. Still, be like a mirror. Respond like an echo. "
~ quote by Bruce Lee
I tottaly admire him, his style, his phylosophy of life, and I am fascinated by the Martial Arts, and Japanese culture.
But looking deeper in the quote, I can`t help but wonder, if we would only live ONLY in the moment, wouldn`t we become like the ones who brought us here, like Narcisists?
Can`t help but remember the similarities, they live only in the moment, and yes, many of them seem to have growing careers and paths. BUT keep adapting to the moment, WITHOUT looking behind, to see how they affect the lives of those close to them.
I am in no way saying I dislike the quote, I admire this man`s philosophy and his wisdom inspires me, to explore and discover myself.
But in the same time I can`t help but wonder, how many people that I have so much admired, in a certain domain, like musicians, actors, many have messed up lives, and treat their loved ones in less than moral way.. not in any way saying Bruce is the case.
I don`t know if I make that much sense in my thoughts rambling today lol, but I hope we CAN be able to grow, experience, become better, wiser, stronger, WITHOUT crossing that line and turning into a Narc being. But with a humble heart.
Is that possible? I hope it is for each and everyone of us.
Thanks for listening!
