We Chinese people need to find a way to figure out what our problems are. There are two extremes among Chinese people. One is cult of the Chinese Communist Party, the large group of people who worship the CCP, which is based on Marxism-Leninism. Another one is that lots of people overseas worship all things foreign, as evidenced by the fact that they insult their ancestors, insult Chinese people and feel ashamed of being Chinese, which is really hard for me to accept, they are ancestral to Europe and America. Although they do have lots of things worth learning, as Chinese people, we cannot insult our ancestors, disrespect our parents, abuse Chinese people and feel ashamed of being Chinese, which is the other extreme.
The study of Chinese traditional culture has a very important practical significance, because it is a kind of wisdom. There is an archaeological basis for this wisdom, but it has not been published. This is the Godly secret that must not be revealed, so that we cannot release the wisdom of Fu Xi right now since the CCP is in power and we must protect the wisdom from contamination and destruction. By the time the New China is established, Fu Xi’s wisdom will be certainly presented. Only when we find the roots of the Chinese nation can we connect with our ancestors and inherit their wisdom.
This is absolutely the universal value. Let’s take Miles Guo as an example, who is of practical importance. He has gained great insight into this wisdom, and he is a real master. Miles knows about Qimen Dunjia, an ancient form of divination derived from Hetu Luoshu that is remote antiquity long-standing wisdom. He knows the importance of Feng Shui, also known as Chinese geomancy. He made use of this traditional practice to accomplish his Pangu Plaza. Miles has the inner essence of traditional Chinese wisdom and he is very good at combining it with western skills to achieve internal and external cultivation. His state of mind is not a bit higher than that of the Western people.
We, as the children of Chinese nation, would be greatly enhanced if we find the endless treasures our ancestors handed down to us, including science and technology. Why did most of the inventions eventually disappear? It is because that the I Ching was tampered with and the entire mathematical model was destroyed. If this mathematical model still exists, that would be very powerful. Computer science performs calculations in binary, which stands for Yin and Yang, a small part of I Ching. There is more profound wisdom in the I Ching that has not been discovered. The contemporary era, in which, modern western civilization and traditional eastern culture are in mutual integration.
We must not underestimate ourselves. There are basically three kinds of wisdom among human beings, the Way of Cosmos, the Way of Earth and the Way of Mankind. The Way of Cosmos is the real wisdom, the laws of the Universe, including Hetu Luoshu. What is the Way of Earth? Is the Earth transformed into material? Material is modern technology, it’s all about turning into things, into material or technology, and this is the Way of Earth. In regard to the Way of Mankind, is about as a person, how to live a happy life, explore inner potential, rectify yourself, regulate your family, cultivate business and benefit the world. In another word, a person should realize the Way to benefit yourself, incorporate the Way into your family, apply the Way to your enterprise and utilize the Way to contribute to the world. These are the best and most advantageous within the Chinese culture. Chinese culture is good at wisdom, including the Way of Cosmos and the Way of Mankind, while the Western civilization is best at science and technology, which is the Way of Earth. Therefore, learning from each other will definitely bring real benefits to mankind.
