095: Master Xi Qi Ling | What Chinese Tradition Can Teach Us About Success

The eastern philosophies that influence the school headed by Master Xi Qi Ling provide a valuable counterbalance to our western ones. In our individualistic culture we often forget that in order for our lives to function optimally we need to consider how they can harmonize with the greater whole. For example, the school realizes that if they merely teach the students and neglect what happens when they go home, then the teachings are at risk of being lost; therefore they teach the parents as well. In short, the universe is more powerful than any one person and if we nurture it, it will nurture us right back.

Lessons:

  1. Health and well being depend on harmonizing your physical, mental and spiritual being.
  2. Everything is connected.
  3. Some problems can be solved very quickly while others can only be solved slowly. Knowing the difference is important.
