Excellence Reporter: Master Liu, what is the meaning of life?
Master Liu He: The meaning of life is to never stop learning. It allows you to continue growing in the right direction for your life, other’s life, and nature’s life. With this concept, we become thankful for yesterday, appreciate today, and feel hope for tomorrow.
In Taoist/Chinese philosophy, there are three main suggestions to learn:
- Learn from Nature: When you learn from nature, you connect with nature and the natural vibrations of the universe instead of connecting with the Internet all the time. When nature changes, as with the seasons, we reflect these change within ourselves. We learn to respect nature and do no harm to nature.
- Learn philosophy: A philosophy class is best when introduced in middle school. When a teenager learns philosophy, this allows them to begin to focus on the internal, versus only paying attention to the external or superficial. When focusing on the external they never become satisfied with themselves. The thoughts start, thinking others are better, have more things to do, and become more materialistic. When they cannot get what they want, suffering and unhappiness begins. Philosophy will develop more wisdom for life, thus becoming a vital life skill.
- Learn Qigong: Qigong, as a branch of Chinese medicine, has a 5000 year history. The practice is for self-development, self-healing, to help others and heal the world. The first two suggestions for learning are a part of Qigong study.
By learning the three steps above, you will build a strong foundation. You then discover and live a vibrant and meaningful life.
