Ancient wisdom shared… from the Doctorine of the Mean


The Grandson of Confucius comments on the “Way” and Human Nature.

“Therefore, the superior man cultivates a friendly harmony, without being weak.– How firm is he in his energy! He stands erect in the middle, without inclining to either side.– How firm is he in his energy! When good principles prevail in the government of his country, he does not change from what he was in retirement.– How firm is he in his energy! When bad principles prevail in the country, he maintains his course to death without changing.– How firm is he in his energy!

From the 中 庸 Zhongyong

 

I wanted to share a bit of what I have been learning and studying for the last seven years. I shared this in a spiritual group discussion on LinkedIn about love, not religion,  not philosophy from the heart love of all that exists no matter what is going on around a person. We can be true to who we are when we stand in the middle as who we are we can be the love we are meant to be.

Thank you all for being you and for being the change positive our world so needs, thank you for sharing your love and your smiles making our world a better place for all we share it with!

Namaste

  1. I like, and agree with, the quote and have just about mastered the state of mind/being that makes it possible to “walk through” negative behaviour unmoved whilst being aware that there is a positive outcome in the end by each finding enlightenment!

  2. Hi Ian, I am grateful for your presence and would like to congratulate you on your progress and self mastery. I have been working on this as well and know it is a daily practice to be at one with this process and become master of ones self! You are doing amazing things Ian I am honored to be your friend!🙂
