You can learn alot from others about yourself either by their example of how they act towards you or by the way they say how you treat people. For example you can be an asshole to some people because of the way you are feeling and directing your attention to a memory good or bad reflects on how you are at that moment even though that is not your overall opinion about them, your emotions effect your mind, spirit, body and overall health. I leaned that I have a violent temper and that through my teachers and most importantly myself that I have to learn to control it instead of being passive all the time and letting it build up and ultimatly destroy me. Martial arts, meditation ,chi work, cooking , fitness delopment(weight training, biking, cardio training) have a deep meaning to me they show me how to express myself in a healthier way and ultimatly lead to a healthier life. Their are three people especially in my life that I wanted to thank although one has passed away 18 years before I was born his teachings from his movies and books have helped alot, another is my best friend and teacher bobby he is not only my teacher in martial arts but also a close friend who I confide through out my daily life, the last person I want to thank is sifu Freddie lee because without you I would not know how to have push my physical limits and for showing me that your overall fitness matters in the martial arts not so much as the combative techniques. Also seeing your philosophy videos have benifited to my overall development and enlightenment as a total human being. Thank you for expressing the way after all its like bruce said true self knowledge does not come from books it comes from inside ourselves. Thank you for helping me explore myself.
