The Tao of Coffee

The Tao of Coffee January 15, 2013

Someone on Facebook shared this quote attributed to Bruce Lee…

Be like water …Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and 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.

I liked the sentiment, which is very Taoist. But I added in a comment something that I think is also important:

You put coffee in a coffeemaker, it becomes coffee!

And that reminded me of this image which has also been making the rounds on Facebook:
