Thus spake bruce lee

Things i have learned from Bruce Lee:

“As you think, so shall you become.”
What are you really thinking about today? i was not thinking big enough

“It’s not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential.”
“If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.”
Simplify. Hell, i was just thinking about all the wonderful things i could do. i never took the time to put things on paper or do things that could make things simpler. No refinement.

Learn about yourself in interactions. i observed that i spoke about my own interest, with no thought as to what the other person's interest was. i never tried understanding what the other person wanted or was interested in. No diversity in thought - no expansion of mind - no growth.

Deliverence

from a long time i was trying to hold on to someone that i had already lost a long time back.
amidst the hustle and bustle of life,i forgot that everything we face expands our mind, changes our opinion, temperament, reasoning and everything else. and once our mind changes, it rarely comes back to it's original shape. i am guilty of a lapse, which is that i forgot that if i have changed so has that person, and hence i should have let things be, and enjoyed the overwhelming memories, instead of hoping and torturing myself for mistakes made.
i realized this the other day, and now know that it was a beautiful feeling when it lasted, and no one can take it away. i also realized that i was never at fault, and the guilt i was feeling was baseless. i am truly free now, not because the chains are broken, but because they were never there.
