Chinese Wisdom

To celebrate Lunar New Year, I would like to share with you some Chinese wisdom provided by Lao Tzu who was an ancient Chinese philosopher, writer and founder of Taoism. His name means “Old Master”.

The Year of the Pig promises to be a year filled with prosperity, good fortune & abundance. I explained in Chapter 11 of my book that the word “prosperity” comes from the latin root “prosperitas” which means “to go forward hopefully”, in other words, it is an attitude towards life. Being prosperous therefore is not a destination, it is a journey. 

Lao Tzu also teaches us that “Truly, the greatest gift you have to give, is that of your own self-transformation. Extract from “This Is Your Quest” – Chapter 7 – Page 103.

Finally, our Great Master says “A journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step. Stop trying to leave, and you will arrive. Stop seeking, and you will see. Stop running away, and you will be found. By letting go it all gets done.” Extract from “This Is Your Quest” – Chapter 7 – Page 103.
