A FINGER POINTING TO THE MOON
There is no standard in total combat, and expression must be free. This liberating truth is a reality only in so far as it is 'experienced and lived' by the individual himself; it is a truth that transcends styles or disciplines. Remember, too, that Jeet Kune Do is merely a term, a label to be used as a boat to get one across; once across, it is to be discarded and not carried on one's back.
TKDTutor Comments: Again, remember this one written at the time when Transcendental Meditation was the latest fad. Just as Lee said, do not be a sheep that follows some guru’s philosophical BS. Think for yourself and use knowledge, reasoning, and logic to separate the BS from the truth. Lee seems to think he is right because his way is different from his view of the traditional way. Many people want to be different from the norm, not necessarily right, just different.
These few paragraphs are, at best, a "finger pointing to the moon." Please do not take the finger to be the moon or fix your gaze so intently on the finger as to miss all the beautiful sights of heaven. After all, the usefulness of the finger is in pointing away from itself to the light, which illumines finger and all.
TKDTutor Comments: In other words, do not let yourself be so distracted by the finger of Lee’s BS that you cannot see the truth.
