....Empty your mind,
Be formless, shapeless, like water.
Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup.
You put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle.
You put water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot.
Now water can flow, or it can crash,
Be water my friend .

OK, here's an interesting observation for you JKD folks to consider. Was Bruce just referring to water in it's liquid state? Or any of it's 3 states?

Good question, Eyrie.

I believe in that particular example, he was refering to water in it's liquid state. I know that Ed Parker formulated the SD techniques of American Kenpo with all 3 states of matter in mind.

Sorry,I just get tired of the Bruce Lee quotes that people try to examine to death.It's probably just another quote that he got from a much older,deader,and wiser guy.

So? All knowledge is not new....just different spins on old ideas. Treat it like it did come from someone older and wiser...

What is this? The zen forum? I could find a verse in proverbs that says something similar with much more meaning.
