Be Water, my Friend! by Tiziana Palazzo
14 Aug, 2014
“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 it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” (Bruce Lee)
This phrase of Bruce Lee, taken from Taoist philosophy, has inspired me in a particularly intense way in this article. There are multiple interpretations about this sentence.
One is that we are called to be, metaphorically, such as water, developing our sense of “adaptability”, faced with the challenges that life presents us along the way. The second is that the human being, becouse false beliefs, wrong experiences and results, enables himself to be completely himself, to the best of his potential, and the human being often spends part of his life trying to identify and “compete” with a self-image perceived, wrongly, as “right, winning, accepted by society” that denies the true and its profound essence of which everyone is done, in a unique way. The invitation is to choose freedom. So, be yourself. How? One of the most effective tools is definitely the neuroscientific hypnosis, able to reprogram all those particular aspects of behavior that determine the fruits of which we do not like particularly. The mind can do wonders, especially for itself. Do you really want to reach the maximum, to enjoy the life of your dreams? Then delete, “I wanted to do it but …” and replace it with, “I do it, now.” And believe me it’s easier than you might think, through neuroscientific hypnotherapy.
