To be willing is the highest spiritual practice in life.

/July 2022

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon once said:

A person's life is a process of constant loss and gain.

the more you get, the more you lose, and the more you lose, the more you get.

as the saying goes, "you have to give up, you have to give up, you have to give up."

being willing is not only a necessary practice on the way of life, but also a doomed cause and effect.


is reluctant to give up. Laozi once said, "if you want to take it, you must give it to it."

if you want to get something, you must first give something. If you don't give, you won't get anything. If you don't know how to give up, you won't get it.

in history, Zeng Guofan, an important minister of the late Qing Dynasty, was also faced with this problem. After Zeng Guofan successfully built Wuhan and returned in triumph, many of his subordinates voted for others.

after investigation, it was found that these people had turned to their good friend Hu Linyi, and Zeng Guofan was very puzzled.

at this time, a colleague told him that after the war, only 3% of Zeng Guofan's men rewarded meritorious service, while Hu Linyi was as high as 20%.

in the face of such a big gap, anyone would be willing to work under Hu Linyi.

after hearing this, Zeng Guofan was deeply ashamed. from then on, whenever he won a battle, he praised the strategist's ingenuity and the courage of his officers and men, and never mentioned his meritorious service.

and his subordinates wanted wealth, so he gave money, and if he wanted a future, he recommended it. In this way, in the accumulation and willingness of the hearts of the people day after day, Zeng Guofan's subordinates greatly increased their morale and won numerous battles, and he also became an important minister of a generation.

Master Nebula once said, "all great good people can give up, and all great wise people dare to give up."

if you want to get help and support from others, you must first know how to give up. Only by giving up can you get something.

when fishermen go out fishing, they always have a practice, that is, to put the small fish and crabs they have caught back into the water.

they know how to give up some small benefits at present, and they will gain more in the near future.

Life is just like this. All successful people know the wisdom to give up. They give up small things and big ones.

those who can give up can get everything they want.



as early as two thousand years ago, Mencius said:

Life, it is between giving and giving that there is a balance, and the result is often not satisfactory.

once there was a wooden wheel without a horn, and it was unhappy because of its lack, so it decided to go on the road to find a corner that suits it.

because of its lack, it walks very slowly and stops all the way, but during its journey, it gets to know many beautiful flowers, gets to know many interesting bugs, and talks to each other very much.

during this period, it also encountered a lot of wood chips, but none of them were suitable for it.

so it went on, and finally one day, it came across a piece of wood with the right shape and size, and it repaired itself perfectly.

but it finds that its life has completely changed and become uncontrollable, so fast that it can no longer appreciate beautiful flowers or talk to interesting bugs.

so it stopped, and after some thought, it unloaded the wood chip and chose to start again.

as the saying goes, "if you lose a horse, how can you know that it is not a blessing?"

the same is true of life, where the lost part often comes back in another form.

God has closed a door for you, and he will certainly open another window for you.

know how to give up, can really have, know how to let go, can go further.


there is a lifetime of spiritual practice

as the old saying goes: "giving is getting, and giving is giving up."

A person's life is doomed to have something to give up and have something to gain. Between giving up and getting, there is a little joy and a great hidden wisdom.

there are two lakes with the same water source in Burroughs, one of which is extremely clean, crystal clear and full of life.

the other lake has already become a dead lake, surrounded by barren grass and desolation.

the biggest difference between the two is that the former knows how to receive and give, while the latter only knows how to receive new water sources and is reluctant to drain the original water, eventually turning it into a pool of stagnant water.

people often say, "what you lose is what you gain."

if you lose something in this place, you must get something in another. If you only focus on the gains and losses in front of you, you will never find a new world.

"Poetry Fairy" Li Bai, precisely because he gave up wealth, was able to create many excellent works, which have been handed down through the ages and have been praised by later generations.

Gou Jian, the king of Yue, was able to regain the throne and rule the world after more than ten years of suffering and suffering because he abandoned honor and disgrace.

on the road of life, there are countless opportunities between giving up and getting. People who are really wise can give up and dare to give up.

learn to give up, so that the life of heavy mountains and rivers can be suddenly enlightened.

between willingness, there is everyone's life-long spiritual practice.

May you continue to grow and make progress in the great wisdom of giving up and gaining when you should give up.
