Sifu Lee on The Internet
The true desire I have within since I started practicing Martial Arts is to express myself as an Artist on a large scale. Without that opportunity, I would feel something within me would be in lack. Yes I would continue to practice while being hidden, but I would always feel something would be missing. I know Bruce had this drive & that is what pushed him towards Hollywood. For me, I have the Internet & social media, but I see that those in power are attempting to take away this Internet & our ability to communicate. The result would hinder much creativity in this world. I would then have to concentrate my energies on a local level but doing so I would not be enabled at all to connect with people who are miles away. It brings me great joy to see how I can connect with others in other states & countries through modern technology. I believe this to be nearly every Artist’s dream. To me it’s not even about making money, if anything, as a starving Artist you will always be spending money in order to share what you have grown to love so much, in my case it is Kung Fu & Martial Arts.
The simple label of “Tao” brings together so many people of like understanding. It was the Tao that liberated my mind from conformity. I believe I am here to complete what Bruce was unable to complete for the Martial Arts community. Yes it is an enormous task but I am willing to dedicate my entire life into completing this task. If those in power wish to take away the internet, it will be much more difficult to reach out to others on a mass scale as Bruce was able to do, as Hollywood would hardly ever knock at my door. But I see that publishing a few books will do, it may be so that some individuals may accidently discover my writings & possibly become transformed as what I have experienced with the Tao. In a library filled with thousands of books & movies, there will be the few that you will find that will guide you towards the way. But always remember that anything of great value is never something that is easily obtained. Continue on your journey towards the way, I will continue on mine, by doing so, our spirits will forever be connected.
