RAW POWER

bruceleecard.jpgBruce Lee is the man who reminds me of raw power, his physique was immaculate, and he had probably the lowest body fat in the world.  Many see Lee as a model for acquiring a strong and efficient body and the highest possible level of physical fitness, as well as developing a mastery of martial arts and hand to hand combat skills.  His speed was awesome and skills, well I don’t need to elaborate on that one, no one can match him, and at least so far no one has.  He was a philosopher, instructor and a martial arts actor.

His physical feats are mind boggling, he could perform push-ups using only his thumbs –ive tried doing push-ups with four fingers and all I can say is its kinda impossible to do it with yr thumbs.  His “one-inch” punch was mid boggling, he used to place his fist an inch away from the target and the punch that resulted from that one inch of distance was enough to send the fittest on the bed for atleast a day or two.            Unfortunately he didn’t live long, how he died is yet a mystery and there are lots of stories revolving around his death, for me he is a hero a true hero.  He completed only 4 films in his short lifetime, The Big Boss (1971) Fist of Fury (1972) Way of the Dragon (1972) Enter the Dragon (1973)Please do have a look at these movies, they are worth watching.  I feel so sad that successful and talented people are looked upon with envy.  We should all try and inculcate in ourselves the best that we see in others and try and become a better person, rather than getting jealous of others accomplishments / talent.  Its tough to do that I know but I stay that ways and Im very happy, you guys try it out too and you will live a better life for sure.  No jealousy, no war!

  6. assem what is it with you and muscles ? lol

    I dont think hes a hero , due to the fact he didnt die on islam , so im more sad for that . How he died a mystery ? well maybe he was just meant to die .
    I really like all that martial arts stuff but have no one to teach me , so its yoga for me which is great . Jeolousy yes I know what you are talking about , I wish people who get jeolouse easily would just look in their heart and try and remove it instead of indulging in the feeling .

  7. well, I dont express my emotions so isnt it right to build muscles, atleast i dont mind exposing them 😉
    Haha well thats just a joke!
    Even if he was meant to die, he died pretty early in life.. @ 32 I dont like death, its one of the toughest things for me to face when a loved one dies…. (even my cat)

    I hate death to , but you reduce the fear by doing good deeds . I get upset when ever anything dies , especially non muslims . When a good muslim dies , I cry cos I will miss them, when a non muslim dies I get saddened by it , and almost frightened at the thought . The reality is you will never be ready for death .

  9. Amal, this life is given to us by Allah, so HE has all the right to take it back when he wants it, we should be ready for death, but the problem is we havent done too many good deeds so far so that we can face Allah rtn now…

  10. yes aseem thats why you should ask allah to give you a good ending to your life , because you dont know when you will be going , imagine when your in an exam room , you know you have two hours left to finish an exam , with life you dont know , the examination paper can be snatched away from you any time . Scary huh ?
    So no matter how many good deeds you do , their is no certainty you will enter paradise but what you can do is keeping asking and begging allah that he will judge you by his mercy , allah wants paradise for everyone , but it takes effort !

    so Aseem may allah guide us all on his light ameen

  11. Yes, lets pray that we get to enter jannat Inshallah.
    u gave me an example of exams.. hehehe, im the wrong person to be told that, all i knew is that i have to get out out of the exam room as fast as poss. My dad taught me not to fear anything but Allah, so Im scared of Allah cos I have to face HIM when i leave this world, but in this world, Im fearless !

  12. Legend in his oown words:

    Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless–like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, You put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash! Be water my friend.

    If I should die tomorrow, I will have no regrets. I did what I wanted to do. You can’t expect more from life.
