Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
An entertaining and enlightening guide to the philosophy behind the martial arts techniques that lead to a creative and fulfilled life. See with your Skin. Find Your Range. Be Like Water--ancient lessons for seasoned warriors, Buddhist monks, and even kung fu champions like Bruce Lee, but also powerful lessons about navigating a modern, murky emotional world. Be Like Water is the one book that combines ancient martial arts wisdom with a modern de-stress-yourself sensibility for readers who desire to transform their own lives. Regardless of readers' spiritual orientation, this inspiration guide is filled with easy to follow concepts that will dramatically change readers' lives for the better. Be Like Water includes 16 easy to read and entertaining chapters, each of which addresses a significant martial arts technique, the philosophy in which it is embedded, brief, easy to read, narrative examples of how the technique manifests itself on the mats and in daily life--and of course, how the technique and philosophy transfer into every day concerns such as self improvement, relationships, self confidence, health, spirituality, and creative living. Some concepts covered: The importance of distinguishing between attention and intention, real threats and non-threats, and fluidity versus rigidity. Each chapter also provides two interactive features: Meditations and Affirmations. Each presents accessible and immediate application of techniques.
This entertaining and enlightening guide reveals the philosophy behind the martial arts techniques that lead to a creative and fulfilled life.
