Soul Brothers Bruce Lee and Musonius Rufus - Growth through Voluntary Discomfort (Episode #37, 7 May 2021)

We continue our mutual journey on the life and teachings of Bruce and Shannon Lee.  I am incredibly inspired by the gift that Shannon has provided through her mediations on the life and teachings of Bruce Lee.  Shannon has experienced an incredible amount of pain in her life, the loss of  her father at four as well as the untimely death of her brother Brandon.  She wouldn't wish it on anyone and would give anything to have been able to experience the vibrant lives of her brother and father.  But that pain has given her an incredible wisdom that has made her such an incredible guide to the teachings of her father Bruce.

In this episode, I explore that the growth that occurs through purpose driven pain or as Shannon calls it, "skillful frustrations" that we subject ourselves to reach our goals.  Bruce called this "means," which is daily purpose driven discomfort to grow our minds, our bodies and spirits.

We also detour to the Ringo Starr of the Stoics, Musonius Rufus, a guide on the virtues of hardship in life as it reach is and conclude with Kelly Clarkson.

I hope you get the opportunity to read Be Water, My Friend - The Teachings of Bruce Lee. The book can be purchased also by clicking on the link in the Bruce Lee Show Notes at Love this book!!
