Philosophy is important because your world view affects every aspect of your life. If your mind and body are one, you become unrestricted and the weight of your soul follows behind every punch.

Reality


For a long time I believed the above diagram was what encompassed reality, but I realized (because of Bruce Lee) it was just a limitation. The diagram is simply one perspective on life. Yin & Yang would be another example, which would be a dualistic perspective as if life was a system of 1s and 0s, or a chaotic ocean of ebbs and flows (you decide).

When there are infinite ways of looking at something, sternly saying what life is, just doesn’t do life justice. And since life is constantly changing, I’d say we don’t have any hope of pin pointing down what it is exactly. The best answer may be: “I don’t know”. From there, all you can do is your best and follow your true feelings, that way, you won’t have anything to regret.

A true fighter must have a grounded sense of reality because life throws the hardest punches. We all must find our own truth to our universe. And through that truth we can make the impossible possible. This can only be found from insight, which begs the question: What do I see when I look deep within myself?

Bruce Lee said, “Do not seek, for it will come when least expected.” If that’s true, then I’d say the entire point of Philosophy is to have fun and not worry because it wouldn’t make any difference otherwise.
