Expressing Oneself Honestly

Posted in culture, film, martial arts at 2:38 am by Jerry

“To express oneself honestly, not lying to oneself… now that, my friend, is very hard to do.” – Bruce Lee.

The cultures we grow up in may have different ideas about who we should be, what we should do – what it means for us to be a successful human being.

Fighting your culture’s image of a successful you may demand the ultimate martial art skills within one’s heart, mind, and will. Training your body to be skilled in fighting can be a reflection of this internal fight for authenticity.

And if you can’t help but fail at being something you’re not, there really is no other option. Your only real choice… is to fight for an honest expression of your whole being.
