Description: Whether you'd like to conquer fear and anxiety, develop a more compassionate mode of communication with others, or simply learn to be utterly happy wherever you may be, this little book packs a big message. What exactly is it we're all driven to achieve, possess, and know? How can we be happy and nurturing individuals? Be Like Water examines these questions through the lens of martial arts and offers spiritual exercises and written "resolutions" to serve as mantras in order to help readers improve their lives. Author Joseph Cardillo -- a black belt in Kenpo karate -- draws on sixteen core principles that all martial artists rely on to be strong yet supple, agile yet fluid, sensitive yet powerful. Capturing the essence of these qualities in clear, simple prose, Cardillo illustrates how even the most mundane tasks at home and at work become Zen-like exercises. Here you'll learn that summoning chi is about finding one's center, seeing with your skin means developing sensitivity and intuition, and wrestling an empty jacket teaches us how to overcome force with softness. Inspiring and accessible, this book will help all of us sail through the hectic times in our search for a better life. Book jacket.
