The need for sincerity.
I recently found that there are people out there that take the contents of my blog and republish them on their blogs. I really think that’s great, as you’re sharing the information which is truly my intention. I pay more money every year maintaining this blog, than I do making out of this blog. Wait…..that might not be true. I’ve gotten quite a bit by writing on this blog.
Now about sincerity.
In Asia, there’s a term called 诚意 or sincere. In Cantonese, you’ll pronounce that as “Cheng yee” . It’s the idea that sincerity, is necessary to be a good human being. In Asia, life is more about the next generation. We believe in Asia, that sincerity is more important than any other nature because it brings good, to everyone not just us.
Imagine this world. A world where everybody helped each other sincerely and thoughts were spoken out with sincerity. We’d have a much more transparent world and none of you would be falling into this lie of cereal and processed food.
In this video, you see the man showing off his opera skills, his plants and his little magic trick. This is what we mean by sincerity. He isn’t showing you all this, to show off specifically. He’s actually doing all this, so you as a visitor would enjoy the EXPERIENCE of being around him. Asians, are not a show off culture. What we are, we are a culture that want visitors to experience something different.
In Asia, we WERE culture of sufficient. We were never a culture of big flashy cars, oversized houses, music videos and crap products like lv and gucci and such garbage. WE’re perfectly perfectly happy living in our 120 year old homes. I myself grew up in an extremely old house, running through the rooms and we even had a well! This house was built during the British days so, God bless the Queen for architecture and the English language that opened my doors to the world.
I’m sincerely sharing the ways of the Chinese from what I’ve learned from my coaches. We’re also taught to speak softly, because we believe everything is connected. The way you speak, the way you move, the way your eyebrow twitches. It’s about SELF-PERCEPTION. If you can perceive yourself respectfully, you’ll find that yelling would never be your first response to anything. It’s people who can’t respect themselves, that will yell because they’re so frightened by the prospect of nobody giving them attention should they not speak loudly enough. No mate, the problem isn’t how loud you speak. It’s how you look at yourself.
Now about sincerity… I hope that those out there that read this blog, keep in mind. Not everyone out there, believe me…has a main goal of filling their wallets up. Our media driven culture, demonizes the poor and persistently glorifies the rich. I completely agree that everything that happens to you, is your doing. I like this statement;
“ It’s hard, it’s gonna suck, nobody gives a fuck ” – Rick Scarpullar
But….The world isn’t just, rich guy, worked hard. Poor guy, didn’t work hard enough.
Coach Wu and I… We share what we know, because we’re sincere about it. We’re not asking for your money. Even if we have to scrape the rice bowl for another meal, we’ll never ask you to give us something we don’t deserve. All we’re doing is, we want you to learn other ways. We don’t want you to be conned by people out there, who pay more money to marketing than they do to their OWN EDUCATION TO ASSIST YOU.
Give guys like us a little hand, please. At least dissect our work, try it and then decide. If it works, tell us. Please, don’t condemn what we share just because it doesn’t go hand in hand with what you believe in. It saddens me, when you show the world your lack of understanding and ability to think when you go blasting out things like “Ah, these Chinese are on roids and make the kids eat grass if they can’t lift“.
1. Kids aren’t put on roids
2. Grass isn’t very nutritious to a human being, so if we fed them grass, they wouldn’t be very good lifters.
3. It’s hard, bloody work, patience and years and years of studies. Not…grass and roids.
Be sincere. Your life will be calmer, and you’ll be a better person.
