    Cool AO members, please read...

    One day, when Fan Chih was attending the teacher near the Rain Dance altar, he said,

    "May I ask about increasing the level of peace and harmony in society, reducing the amount of tension and conflict and knowing when I am confused."

    The teacher said,

    "What an excellent question?

    If you focus on serving others and not on the reward you will get for serving others, you will increase the flow of peace and harmony in the nation.

    If you focus on reducing the amount of tension in yourself, you will automatically reduce the amount of tension in those around you.

    If you allow anger to possess you to the extent that you are oblivious to the harm you are inflicting upon yourself as well as others, you are certainly confused."

    In seeing, one attunes to seeing clearly.
    In hearing, one attunes to hearing correctly.
    In one's appearance, one attunes to being cordial.
    In one's demeanor, one attunes to respectfulness and courtesy.
    In one's speech, one is trustworthy.
    In one's work, one is diligent.
    In one's doubts, one asks advice.
    In one's anger, one considers the consequences.
    In one's pursuits, one is attuned to what flows in peace and harmony.

    Although you'll admit that the good feeling you get from helping others is somewhat self-serving (although much less so than the alternatives)

    Before anybody else posts to this, please ignore haraam77. He obviously wants to start a flame war. Don't get sucked in.

    I personally feel that this thread is a lesson to most of us. There isn't a person here who wouldn't be wisened by this philosophy.

    Cool

    The Great Confucious once said..
    Unbounded bravery degenerates into foolishness. Too much candor is rudeness.
    Most people are for the most part too impetuous or too cautious. The impetuous can be totally foolish in their endeavors and the over cautious never seem to live life to its fullest.
    So please try not to be so foolish...
