FINDING YOUR CENTER
Only he who has most sincerity can develop himself to the utmost. Able to develop himself, he can develop other people. Able to develop other people, he can develop other things. Able to develop other things, he can further the beneficial operations of heaven and earth.
- The Li Chi, chapter on Doctrine of the Mean
In the philosophy of the West we usually think of sincerity as a quality, which a person may or may not have developed. In contrast to Western philosophy the Confucian Sages of Eastern philosophy consider that the way to maintain sincerity is by doing one thing that is of paramount importance. This one thing that is necessary to do in order to have sincerity is to rest before taking action. They believed mental clarity and sincerity depend on focus and preparation. Focus and preparation only comes during times of inactivity. In contrast, our modern Western world has a work week that is filled with constant and endless multitasking. The Confucian Sages cautioned against going from one thing to the next without coming to rest.
In our modern day Western society there is so much for us to do, and so much for us to think about. In this book Finding Your Center: Explorations in Philosophy, New Physics, and Eastern Mysticism there is much you will discover, a broad spectrum including vast inter-disciplinary perspectives about Life, Mind, and Truth. The scope is enormous and one’s mind might become very busy with the task of contemplating the insights included in this book. But, I caution against having a state of mind that is too busy. Rather, take the time to go slowly. Relax. Let what you’ve read take time to marinate. Allow your mind to become still. Take a rest from time to time. In this way you will slowly, and steadily develop mental clarity.
Also, in order to maintain one’s sincerity it is vitally important to take centered, successful, and appropriate action. Finding Your Center is a familiar, modern equivalent to the Confucian philosophy of resting. When centered you are not exerting unnecessary energy. Also, you are not confused, disturbed, or dissatisfied. By finding your center you will be clear about what you’re doing, even before you take action. Therefore, clarity and centeredness are the foundation of sincerity. With this consciousness you can influence others for the better, and increase probabilities for success.
