Be Formless

"Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend." Bruce Lee
The world seems solid but it is only solid because we think it is.

The other day, I hit my elbow hard and heard a cracking noise. I instantly silenced my thoughts. Where there was nothing to think about, there was no thought of pain to experience.

When I'm being silence the world is formless; and in the realm of the formless, the laws of cause/effect as we know it ceases to have any meaning.

Be still; be formless.
