We sat down at the dinner table and discussed about people who wants to sit on a throne.. The discussion became a philosophical one ranging from Buddha to Machiavelli, even Hitler was included.
We laid a foundation between humane and inhumane, a visionary and a psychopath with all the characteristics that followed.
It wasnt strange since but it probably had a remarkable immoral tone to it..

There is a fine line between being a visionary and a psychopath, both tend to rely heavily on imagination and fantasies. The major difference was that one of them under setbacks became frustrated and started lashing out, almost a parable to the latest Star Wars movie.
While the other had faith in what he was doing.. Setting clear goals, not a/one goal..

The psychopath has a destructive tendency and blames everyone else for his misfortune and setbacks, those who doesnt fit the bill, are out..
The visionary, well, he makes subtle changes to where things went wrong.. Adjusting the course, so everyone understands it can be achieved..

Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless like water if you put water in the cup it becomes the cup and water can flow or it can crash.

The Tao Te Ching #8

The supreme Goodness is like water,
nourishing all of creation
without trying to compete with it.
It gathers in the low places unpopular with men.
Therefore it is like The Tao.

In dwelling, live close to the ground.
In dealing with others, be gentle and kind.
In speaking, stand by Your word.
In governing, lead with integrity.
In making a move, choose the right moment.

One who lives in accordance with nature
does not go against the way of things.
He moves in Harmony with the present moment,
always knowing the truth of what must be done.

How is it that a Hitler supporter and apologist named Eric Dubay, just made a YouTube video including this quote from Bruce Lee prominently? How did Bruce Lee come up recently? And how did he become associated to Hitler?

Tikbalang.... what I'm asking is this: did you watch Eric Dubay's video?

Goes good with that omelet made of EGGS-actly...

The humanoid is 70% water Below the neck and 80% Above the neck; You ARE water.. As You'd never find the middle of the Sea, nor would You with Me...

Stay Hydrated My Friend... (as opposed to a slick ad campaign to get You to drink alcohol which actually de-hydrates after copious amounts; e.g. when 'hung like a bat'..)

Water soothes, refreshes and sustains life. But it can also move mountains.

Or you can just drink it when you're thirsty. Dehydration is a bother.
