Love this rugged leather wristband laser engraved with one of Bruce’s most famous quotes – “Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless – like water. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”
I know what I am doing with my 9 year old this weekend: a Cotton Ball Launcher.

I have shared this before, but just want to remind everyone that this sped up moon footage exists. This is the internet I am here for.
“You can get to where you want to be from wherever you are—but you must stop spending so much time noticing and talking about what you do not like about where you are.”

“There are plenty of well-documented reasons to distrust Instagram — the platform where one is never not branding, never not making Facebook money, never not giving Facebook one’s data — but most unnerving are the ways in which it has led me to distrust myself. After countless adventures through the black hole, my propensity to share, perform, and entertain has melded with a desire far more cynical: to be liked, quantifiably, for an idealized version of myself, at a rate not possible even ten years ago.
I think I am a writer and an actor and an artist. But I haven’t believed the purity of my own intentions ever since I became my own salesperson, too.”

“The most important thing in life is your inner energy. If you’re always tired and never enthused, then life is no fun. But if you’re always inspired and filled with energy, then every minute of every day is an exciting experience. Learn to work with these things. Through meditation, through awareness and willful efforts, you can learn to keep your centers open. You do this by just relaxing and releasing. You do this by not buying into the concept that there is anything worth closing over. Remember, if you love life, nothing is worth closing over.”
― Michael A. Singer
“By all means break the rules, and break them beautifully, deliberately, and well.”
