The Silent Flute

This one has to be my favourite poem of Bruce Lee’s ❤️️

I wish neither to possess
Nor be possessed
I no longer covet paradise
More important, I no longer fear hell

The medicine for my suffering
I had within me from the very beginning,
But I did not take it

My ailment came from within myself
But I did not observe it
Until this moment

Now I see that I will never find the light
Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel,
Consuming myself

~ Bruce Lee

A true inspiration ❤️️

Nothing to Fear

There is nothing to fear
The opposite side of the one 
you hide behind,
Is always there
Just open your eyes,
Look and see
See the whole
All that is
See all there is to see,
Even in the darkness
The light is shining bright
Even at the lowest
There is the highest of heights
Embrace the wholeness;
There is no need to hide 💗
