wu Wei is in so many ways to guide us to be reflective and introspective at all times.. Regarding human desire. from the Hunan desire, the mindset into doing all things rightly or erroneously have begun. I have all my love and respect regarding Dao. it is one of the major colum and pillar of our culture that have given us all much guidance without mechanistic procedures.. it also compliments the educational values of Confucius where the Learning" is dynamic and perpetual... And learning does come into many forms and by the fostering of learning with the clear mind to observe...thus, it will allow us all the steps toward thinking...and in thinking, as it was stressed by Mencius and later, enriched by Wang Yang Ming in the 1400s..we are capable of both intelligence and wisdom...this duo camara of our mental chambers have all been around.. As in the case to study both humanities and science...set forth by the Grrek scholars...but at the end...in what Wang Yang Ming had said...we are ultimately have to "Filter" our learning and exposure, with his emphasis of the frequently use of the Chinese word of "heart" , as I have tried to "decode" the rich ideas from all these masters, it simply meant - to have a conscience", meaning in our own process of "filtering" or "screening" , by our own conscientious way to think...these thinking process of thinking, rethinking, then to reflect over our past collectively, and also more introspectively... I have the fortune to have the exposure by the values of Paulo Freire, a very natural Brazilian educator, who wrote- pedagogy of the Oppressed and who had re-created the word CONCIENTIZATION, To be able to ask all oppressors ( that is all of us) in to an actionable format..and in the most simplistic way..just like in here, if the words that I am using now, we're to persuade the audience with any ulterior motive, I become the OPPRESSOR. To lead a on intrusive life is to not to subjugate any way or to belittle any one, much more to "objectify" people, like war, to have objectify young people, enticing them into becoming instruments for wars, and more perversely, in the use of war, to make gains, to loot resources of others , and to use war for banking financial gains....as we all have witnessed of the past 200 years of the false world wars and by banks..case in point..The most obvious Opium War and it devastation of all China. Conscientization of Paulo Freire compliments the same values as WYM...and the results of WYM has been "filtering" through in the value formation in China for over 1000 year, based on the time and period of the age of all grat masters..or 500 BC....
I have stared by WuWei, and I will end by the great Dao with its impact to some westerner scholar, academician and thinker such as Carl Rogers ( do your own googling or by Wikipedia), whom I have called the great Zen man..in his time of the post Sigmund Freud era with Freud psychosexual issues, his minor obsession of the human desire and libidinal/ animalistic nature, regarded by Freud as the often uncontrolabe sexual and animalistic urges...we human do harm.. In a much wider context, by our shared observation of some of the most ignorant passage in all scrptures,, where the entire events of nature of. En and our sexual values have been most obscured...as in much of my postings about the non therapeutic use of PSYCHOANLYSIS of Freud had further perversed by his own blood nephew and his daughter...where Edward Barnays had used the Freudian psychoanalysis, into the arena of mass control and mass manipulation..with the most cruel outcome to have the total perversion into making a false democracy...to have compsumption and to meet all human desires and wants by way of comsumption and the vulgar form of false democracy...the materialistic capitalism..as we now can witness all how this regime influence by one man had taken the entire nation to become so marginalized by this PSYCHOLOGICAL PERVERSION.
Rogers's counseling therapy cannot be taught, but yes, emulated...
"unconditional positive regards..."
"Clint centered therapy"
The key wors of ..be authentic, congruence,,natural...
in my observation, the teachings of both Rogers and Paulo Freire can be and must be exposed to the contemporary Chinese educators today...
education can not br like "banking" drawers,
Education must be dialectic and nit daidactic (boring lecturers)
education must be interactive and dynamic...thus this will foster changes ans so..progress
In so many words, I have found my mentors and counselors who have guided me not so far from the symbiosis of Zen/chan and Dao...with clarity of a self examined life by Socrates and a studious pursuit of knowledge by Confucius, by Mencius and with richer exposure by WYM...and The human compassion well taught and expressed by Christ and Buddha ...and the many infinitely wiseman and women....from all cultures and ethnic origins that had enriched me more of my own humanity with humility.... Be that Twain, Dickens, Duma, Hugo, Cervantes, musicians...thinkers... Entertainers...words and melodies that can continue to extract more human side of us...activating the affective domain side of our Psyche.....in order to allows to make good and to foster more CONSCIENTIZATION of our own specie called homo Sapien , coming from the word SAPIENZIA. Mixing in with Latin and Grrek...both meant WISDOM..
