Natural Habitat? Water

Why did you choose the location for your shoot?
Water is the most abundant molecule in the universe, it is also the most abundant solid substance in space.  Bruce Lee said ” We must learn to flow like water.” The reason he did not say to flow like anything else is because water is the only thing that flows, everything else out there is either locked up as solid or gone to the atmosphere as gas.

What about your practice do you draw from in daily life?
Building a life around being true, not anything material.  Building a musculature of quality, not quantity.

How does practice affect your ‘normal’ world?
Learn to love the point of resistance.

Why do you Urban?
Growth comes at the point of resistance. We learn by pushing ourselves and finding what really lies at the outer reaches of our abilities.

What’s your favorite thing about the UYS community?
Really good people. I am very drawn to people who do not get caught up in the external adulation that comes with success, but are real and living their lives with love. That is how I try to live.

What’s your favorite guilty pleasure?
I have no guilt. Whatever I eat, it’s pleasure. There’s no guilt. Enjoy the pleasurable moments but try not to let them dull my senses.
