When Bruce Lee says "be water my friend" then I believe he means:
train your awareness that you become what sorrounds you ...
Just like water which changes its form, we have the ability to adapt to our environement.
When there is a rotten fruit in your box, all fruits can become rotten! Be careful who you sorround yourself with - understand?
Bruce Lee is famous for speaking about the MIND and I was deeply impressed that he won fights by not fighting. Another Example would be JACKIE CHAN who is using Ancient Martial Arts combined with a lot of enthusiasm to defeat his opponents instead of using raw force.
Lastly, SHAOLIN WARRIOR MONKS use fighting not to fight in the first place but to develop virtues. They get to know themselves and therefore we can say:
Fighting leads to (SELF) AWARENESS and increases our Emotional and Kinestetic INTELLIGENCE.
_8 Directions you can step:
Each Direction is a Signal. You step closer? We feel more connected. You step back: You create more Distance. You move to the side: Maybe you try to avoid?
This is happening ALL THE TIME and is known as Emotional Intelligence
Can you see it? THIS IS WHAT WE ARE DOING MOST OF THE TIME!
We are moving and every move is a message to Others. A YES, a NO, a MAYBE - The way we live our life and what we want to achieve is the message that each individual, family and culture leaves.You leave a unique footprint to this world by defining WHO YOU WANT TO BECOME.
WE ARE COMMUNICATION. YOU AS AN HUMAN BEING SIGNAL TO OTHER HUMAN BEINGS.
