#Zen Quote: Bruce Lee ‘Be like water’

‘Be like water’

Here’s a quote from the incomparable Bruce Lee, probably the world’s most renowned martial artist.  He was a man for whom others’ standards of ‘great’ just weren’t good enough.

Depicted in this poster by artist Ben Crooks is his most famous quote.  I find it very useful as a mindfulness and meditation practice, which I’ll explain in the next blog posts!

3 Tips from Stephen Hawking

Not strictly meditation, but here’s 3 tips from one of the greatest minds of our generation, Mr Stephen Hawking:

One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet.

Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it.

Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don’t throw it away. 

Happy Birthday Mr Hawking!
