Welcome back to a new improved Blog from myself! Thank you for taking the time to read what I write, it's very kind. Today I'm giving the up most respect to Bruce Lee, after all is it really 40 years he has been gone..there or round about? Sifu Lee has made such an impact on many people all over the world (myself included) and this wont be a harp about how great he was. This is a harp on how great he still is in memory and in all his disciples practise. What we need to look at his how much he inspired many young and older people to look after themselves. He not only was the voice for silent movie makers and fans,but fitness gyms and almost anybody involved in Martial Art. Some may say they prefer Jackie Chan, but you can bet your bottom dollar they will respect Bruce despite any views that they may have on him.
I feel one aspect of Bruce Lee's legacy is how we can document our own mistakes by researching his notes and philosophies. For example, in the early 70's realised that heavy weights was not a 'must' and that you can use the bar and train circuits to save time and train safer. Bear in mind Bruce had tried many methods and was super strong anyway by that time. It was all the stripping process of JKD. Other may argue that he burnt himself out, I cannot and have to much little knowledge to agree or disagree with that.. so I concentrate on the positive and can only voice from my own research and exposure.
Worthy of a mention is children today worship him, Woman look up to him and nothing in my eyes is more soothing on the mind than Woman and Children training in harmony. (Show the Men up!) Posters of him still hang in many gyms and Martial Arts training places, add to that bedroom walls also. Above all the name Bruce Lee is an example of hardship and he is a hero for those in a struggle. His passion and determination got him to where he wanted to be, but it wasn't easy. So remember nothing should really be easy..it is only easy when you have gone through 'uneasy' firstly. Do you really think its that easy for me to sit and fill a blank page with writing? It is what I do, what I enjoy but believe me..it can be difficult. I often have to search the jungles of my mind to weed out the hidden gems and banish the sludge that clings to them.
All of us can inspire or set an example to someone else. If only we knew how potent our energies are. How I operate is if someone upsets me or does me a wrong turn, I rise above 'getting even' (although we all have a right to stand up for ourselves) instead I turn to inspiration..the great friends I share my life with and use the energy to create something to help others while keeping myself positive. You can not fight them all. In doing so you will lose to your self. Beat yourself first and you will never lose a battle. Life IS the battle!
Stay true, remain you...
