This page is dedicated to my parents whom I have over heard some good Chinese sayings that have help build my values.  My focus on Chinese sayings does not imply which culture or religion is more superior; moreover I am got my English education in a Lasallian St Michael’s Institution.

What the world need are good human values.  It will bring peace to all if the custodian of each culture or religion focus & propagate their good values, rather than striving to be the number one.  Let us drop our human pride and ego, be humble, do a noble job to deserving blessing of God.  

So let the custodians of the 5 main religions: Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam go forth and carry out God's true mission in their hearts.

  • Avoid trying to coerce the simple folks of the world to come under one faith.
  • Avoid waving the Book of God as absolute good values, tell your sheep the history of its development & how humans had managed its development.
  • Avoid playing on human weakness to gather your flock of innocent sheep.
  • Zoom out to see the negative effect of each religion eg exploitation of human weakness.
  • Do not just bury into the deep mystical aspect of religion, zoom out to see the real issues of human need and weakness.
  • Identify the leaders that high jack your religion to create barriers among humans; expose them and redeem followers.

The format of what follows in this page is as follows.  I look forward to your contribution in the comments below to help our very divided world.  I am but a half baked in this, trying to bridge the high up experts to the simple majority below.

  1. Quote in Chinese
  2. Lateral Meaning (LM)
  3. Background (BG)
  4. Human Value (HV)
  5. Equivalents (EQ)

From the Chinese sayings you will notice that most of them comes from observation of the nature and our environment.  These are practical laws of nature underlining the creation of the Universe.  Thus following them are akin to being with nature.  Thus Lao Tze, my sifu's philoshophy is mainly based on similar observation of nature.

Sayings in the West is centered around the Christian faith or culture from the Middle East which i see is to go within the mind of the Creator.
