    lol, yeah.

    but really, best thing would be to read.

    keep in mind that being buddhist is not a convenient route out.

    they have to give up pretty much everything to attain enlightenment.

    and when i say everything, i mean it - women, music, women, music, drugs, etc.

    Eastern philosophy is good shit. I suppose, though, if you were already a chill dude who sees the world from a different angle, it would probably get redundant.

    But really, the internet is your friend. Just start doin some research and see where it "takes you". Sounds decidedly Buddhist to me.

    ^^lol @ that last bit.

    I'm not exactly looking to follow a certain set of beliefs but I'm trying to find a guide line to find my way. Some of the tenants of Buddhism line up with my beliefs so I figured it'd be a good place to start.

    most people have a complete misunderstanding of buddhism.
    Yoga philosophy is also interesting.

    both make more sense to me than only living 1nce just to die.

    Ip Man's Wing Chun is the ultimate style. Jeet Kune Do is the attempt to catch some Bruce Lee lightning in a bottle. Problem with Jeet Kune Do is, Bruce Lee had NO style. So how do you replicate unpredictable behavior so it can be taught in a class? The most you can do with it is to fight like Bruce, THE WAY HE FOUGHT ONE DAY.

    Of course Ip Man is the greatest martial artist to ever live. His student, Bruce, being close second.
