    道德文明诵经典_翻译认领内容

    9kkpp0212 2010-07-13 16:22
    1.   大家好!
    2.   长沙有个“国学国医论坛”,邀请我去参加了一下,在这个国际性的学习论坛完成后,就急急忙忙赶到这里来,应邀参加台州的这次学习活动。在座的各位,都是大家、专家、学者,我到这里是来学习的。
    3.   由于我们的根文化博大精深,像沧海一样渊博,我们穷其一生的精气神和心力智力,都难以把她的全貌弄清楚。我把自己学习和实践的一些心得,奉献给大家,跟大家交流,希望大家能够感兴趣,也欢迎在互动的时候,大家就我的一些研究结论不吝指教,直接将自己的观点表达出来,保持一个良好的学术互动讨论氛围,这是短短的一点开场白。
    4.   今天,我想和大家共同交流和探讨的题目,是“道德文明诵经典”。
    5.   我们国家,当前提出了“道德文明”,如何做好民族的复兴、和谐社会的构建,这里面就涉及到一个道德精神文明的建设问题。
    6.   道德精神文明建设,简称“道德文明”;在古代,就更加简单,就是“文明”两个字。“文明”这两个字为什么跟诵读经典有联系呢?想就这个问题,来展开讨论一下。
    7.   我们当前正在进行的是社会主义精神文明建设,社会主义精神文明建设与道学经典的内观图文诵读是很有关系的。如何真实不虚去搞好精神文明建设,这个问题之所以提出来,也是根据我们国家当前在教育界的改革,遇到了阻力,难以进行,整个学生的素质和社会上人们的素质道德水平迅速下滑,而我们的教育显得无力,没办法顺利推进。我们众多的一些行政方法和学习方法等等各种措施,无力从根本上去解决人们单纯对金钱的片面追求,无法使人们迅速矫正错误的认知观,建立正确的人生观。
    8.   我觉得,通过我多年的研究,发现建立精神文明最简捷、最方便的方法,就在我们的根文化之中,就在儒学思想之中,就在黄帝思想之中,就在老子的五千言之中。
    9.   中华的道德根文化,有三位伟大的缔造者。第一阶段,伏羲创造了易道文化。易道文化的特点,是伏羲老祖用他天人合一的彻悟和大慧大智的观察,通过他对体内的观察和对宇宙自然的观察,创立了河图演绎,用最简单的符号表达万事万物变化的规律。易道文化的创立,就为我们整个中华民族的文化奠定了最坚实的基础,也使得中华民族这几千年来虽然历经风霜雨雪、刀光剑影,也没有在世界文化之林当中被西方文化所淘汰,而是始终坚持下来,没有产生断裂。
    10.   第二阶段,就是成形于轩辕的法道文化,以法论道。当然,这个法道文化渗透在四经修治当中,就在《黄帝四经》里面。《黄帝四经》释读本,目前社会上比较少,我由于时间太紧,没有把她译注完,目前社会上有台湾注本,有国内武汉一位学者的注本,北京学者也有注本,但我看了以后,觉得都并不完全符合当时的历史背景,所以也想将她重新再注释一下,由于时间关系,还没有搞完。但从《黄帝四经》当中,我们可以看出,轩辕的法道文化思想,特别是形名学的思想,在《黄帝四经》里面占有很重要的比例,她是一部修身治国的经典,只是在汉代时,突然被汉武帝清除掉了,从此隐形匿迹,一直到1973年,才在湖南马王堆里面重新被发掘出来。
    11.   第三大类,就是老子的道德文化五千言。当然以帛书版《老子》最为完整,而且最能表达老子的思想,这个就是以德证道的五千言论。
    12.   这三个系统,就构成了我们的根文化。这个根文化的最根本、最前提的基础,是需要人们左脑和右脑同时运用,才能解读和认知,这是一个重要特点。大家可能要问,我们大脑现在是不是左脑和右脑同时在认知呢?可以这样说,我们在座的同仁,包括我我也不能够非常骄傲地说:我是左脑右脑在同时运用。到现在为止,有时候我还是单侧大脑运动,并没有像2500年前的祖先们那样,始终保持着左脑、右脑同时在开启,进行同步整合和运动。
    13.   这是因为2500年以后,我们的大脑都是习惯性用左脑思考问题,而没有启动右脑,所以现在,我们很多人读伏羲的《易经》时,可以叫做摸着牛的肚皮观察事物,并不能知道全牛;读着轩辕的四经法道文化,也只能知其梗概,而难以窥测全貌;读老子的德道文化,也只能知道一点哲学思想的皮毛,而难以全面观察其中的内蕴。为什么会这样呢?这是因为2500年以前,整个世界、整个太阳系进入了银河系的一个黑暗时期、黑夜时期、子夜时期,所以我们人类的右脑工作停止了活动,只有少数人仍然保持着右脑活动。这个能量的缺失,逼使人们停止右脑思维以后,使我们现代人对祖先的思想和文化,难以直接读懂,难以解读清晰,这就成了一个非常顺理成章的事情。
    14.   我们现代社会,又开始慢慢地进入了黑夜快到黎明的时期,所以现在出现了很多人都在自觉追寻祖先的足迹,研究经典,想把她读通,这也是个普遍现象。特别是现在,我们可以看看,经过10多年对儒学经典诵读的研究实践,已经集腋成裘,这个过程完成了。随着智能时期结束和黎明的临近期接近,那么对慧智、慧性和智能同时运用的这个时代,对黎明的迎接已经接近到来,所以人们去亲近2500年以前大智大慧这些圣贤们的经典,也就成了自然的事情。所以现在,很多孩子,虽然我们天天教他们诵读,不去解释经典的内在意思,但孩子们却比我们大人还能够理解,还能明白,他们讲出来的道理,我们活了几十岁的人都叹为观止。为什么呢?孩子们右侧的身体功能已经开始,比我们当初启动的频率要宽得多、快得多了。
    15.   在古代圣贤们的经文书籍中,对人类精神品质的升华早就用了有了正确的分类,将人类分为庶人、贤人、圣人、至人,最高是真人。我们强调过:“千学万学学做真人,千教万教教做真人”。那么何为真人呢?这个“真人”就是指的要上善上德,大慧大智,天人合一,不是为一己之私。近2000多年以来,很多人把道学都妖魔化、边缘化,认为道学是最自私的一门学问。当然,我不排除这种情况,很多学道学的人,越学越实践越自私,成了自私鬼,不是大公仙。这些也是带有共性的现象,但起码来说,道学的原始要求,真正的真人是服务群生的,服务于民族大众群众和一切生命,是为他们去做出贡献的。
    16.   所以我们对修身的不同境界,要有一个先期性的认知,如果我们学习祖先的东西,想去与古人居、与古人谋,而不放下小我,不进入大公心的状态,就没办法启动自己的右脑思维,就会在一个自我的狭隘意识当中,痛苦一生,自己的智慧没办法连接起来,就没办法进入大慧大智的状态。所以,我们在研究传统道德根文化,如何使自己实现真正的精神文明这个问题上,必须要明白我们如何次第性做好不同阶段的人,我们应用传统文化学习祖先的知识和文化,目的是什么呢?那就是要使自己从一个普通人,不能知天、不能识地、也不能知己的这样一个庶人状态,尽快达到贤人状态;然后树起大公心,为民族、为国家能够奉献,心胸更开阔,达到一种圣人的状态;在圣人状态中,继续为社会人民广泛服务,为国家奉献力量,为社会的进步作出应有的贡献,功成身芮,才到至人阶段;最后,达到真人的层次。《黄帝内经》里面对这几类人做了广泛的定义,我在这里就不再啰嗦这些具体定义,你们看一看,就能够读懂。
    17.   我们要达到一种精神文明、道德文明状态,对“文明”的分类,要有一个基准概念,这里简单提一下。“文明”,其实就是人类精神力和生产力共同创造的财富的总和,称为“文明“。这是哲学界的一种观念,也就是说近代西方哲学理论传到中国来以后,我们也相应认知了这一种文明。在这种哲学概念文明的前提下,我们细分一下,观察一下,就不难发现,存在一种智能的外文明和慧性的内文明这两大类。智能外文明,就是由我们的左脑为主体创造的文明,这个最具代表性。现在,我们国家由于教育的全面西化,我们所了解的,也只有西方的智能文明。那么真正全面的西化,但是我相信在座的,如果不研究西方的文化,还不知道西方的智能文明谁是开创者,大家知道吗?谁是西方智能文明的开创者?西方智能文明的开创者,是以亚里士多德为代表的。中国智能文明的开创者是谁呢?是孔子。这两个人都诞生在轴心时代的后期。
    18.   在轴心时代的早中期,东方有印度的佛陀和中国的老子,西方有西方的哲人,有他们的先知。这一批人是创造大智大慧型、慧智同运型的文明,以慧性内文明为主导。而在2500年以后,突然就出现了智能文明。智能文明的特点,就是“近取之于身,远取之于物”;而道家慧性内文明,则是“内取之于身,外取之于物”。所以说,慧性文明既是智能文明的诞生之母,同时也是智能文明得以发展的潜动力。这正与老子所说的“天下有始,以为天下母。既得其母,以知其子,复守其母,没身不殆”。
    19.   我们分析了这两个文明的现状以后,再来探讨精神文明的根蒂,那么就容易把握住其中的内核。这个精神文明解释起来,可以说理意非常深,要走到历史长河当中去进行研究,我们才能够发现其中的一些中国文化特色的文明概念、定义、含义、内涵,以及如何达到和方法都在里面。要实现文明,就首先要把“文“的来源弄清楚,它是我们文化的一种来源,这个“文”的母是符号,也就是阴爻和阳爻。“文”的母亲是符,符的子是文,文的子是字。汉字,一般我们教育中研究的是字,而并不是文。这是因为我们在2500年以后,特别是秦汉以后,始终研究的是这个字,而没有再把精力放到“文”上面。所以,我们看一看,2500年以来,我们实现过文明没有?真正的文明实现过没有?可以说,在整个历史当中,全都是杀戮、战争,是窝里反,互相杀戮,很少见到真正的文明。
    20.   而真正的文明,唯有在汉朝和唐朝实现过,复苏过,复醒过。为什么会复苏复醒呢?因为当时是重新启用了道家老子的思想,才真正达到了一个文明鼎盛时期,而其它的时间都是放弃了对文的研究,而只是放在字上面,所以给我们带来的社会教育,常常是极其短暂的稳定;紧接伴随而来的,就是混乱和战争。所以我们在研究文化当中,识字观文,很容易使我们的心智达到一种智慧的状态,去看历史,看我们应当如何走在一个正确的学习认知道路上,实现真正的慧性文明。
    21.   道德教育切忌单纯的说教,特别是在当前的这个时代,在人们已经滑到了道德底线的时候,连信土也崩溃了的阶段,光去说教,根本没有办法扶起人们的道德观,道德行为就更难产生了。所以,必须要向我们的祖先学习,从我们根文化的井泉当中去汲取智慧。观文诵读,就是一个汲取智慧的方法。从我们的体内去构建最真实、最基本的文明,是一条快捷方式之路。实际上,也就是老子所说的“吾言甚易知也,甚易行也;而人莫之能知也,而莫之能行也”,他就是说的这个很简单的原理。
    22.   我们在道德宣传、道德教育、道德教化这个领域,必须要让推出的方法,能够使受众、使接受教育者,达到一种健康心身的效果,才容易吸引他们。比如说,道家的经典诵读和儒学的经典诵读以及英文的经典诵读,三者比较起来,那么道家诵读就有优势。老子五千言,她既不是一部宗教的经典,也不是一部单纯讨论哲学的一部经典,而是包罗世界所有万事万物的一个瑰宝。凡是诵读老子五千言,很多病人和亚健康者,在诵读她的过程当中,获得了健康,丢掉了疾病。原来性格暴躁、忤逆在心里经常萌生的人,诵读了她以后,心情平和。很奇妙的上善治水的作用,在潜移默的化过程当中产生。实际上,通过这一部五千言来完成道德教育,那是一种高屋建瓴的方式,只要把这个五千言的经典诵读抓住了,可以说在健康心身、心灵健康、身体健康这两个环节,我们的国家都会节省大量的开支,我们的家庭会减省许多的麻烦。
    23.   大家要不信,可以推荐自己的父母去诵读诵读,保证诵读3个月以后,他们的心情会变得愉悦,什么离休综合症、退休孤独症等等现象,都会消失得无影无踪,甚至可能发生的老年痴呆症也会消失,再也不必在他们脖子上挂个牌子,坠个钥匙,怕他们出门走丢了。因为它也能够使自己的精神获得营养,心灵获得健康,大脑获得修复,身体也能够延缓衰老。它有开慧益智的作用,对孩子们能够启动他们的右脑思维,使左脑思维和右脑思维同步进行,而达到一个知天文、识地理、明人文内在素质提高的作用。
    24.   所以我们在研究推广经典诵读的时候,推荐老子道德五千言的诵读,推荐儒学中像《易经》可以构建优秀品质的这一部分的经典诵读。其共同目的,就是要让每个人的心灵当中、身体内部建立精神文明,只有这个精神文明建立起来了,她在默默的诵读过程当中,就达到了一种培贤育圣的效果,达到了一种修身为本的这样一个切实的目标,内显文明,内部的文明就自然呈现了。她没有任何拔苗助长,故意去催促,完全是一种顺其自然的诞生内在文明的状态。只要我们坚持去做,就必然会实现。
    25.   经典诵读方面,实际上在历史上可以说非常悠久,而且世界上各个国家都在进行经典诵读。每个民族都有经典诵读,这是每个民族维系自己民族生存发展延续的一个重要教育措施。世界上若贝尔奖金获得最多的民族是哪个民族呢?(听众答:犹太民族),对,犹太民族。犹太民族他们的人数不多,但这个民族在世界各地成了科学界的佼佼者,包括爱因斯坦,他也是犹太人。他们这个民族为什么会有那么多人,在文化领域、科学领域获得若贝尔奖金?而中国人,13亿人到现在为止,也难以在本土上诞生一个若贝尔奖获得者呢?原因在哪里呢?虽然说原因方方面面众多,但是我从文化教育这里面去探讨和分析,也走访了一些犹太人,包括大家熟知的中国青年钢琴家郎朗的导师巴伦博伊姆,是德国著名的世界级钢琴家和指挥家,他是我的病人,也是我的一位朋友。我们最近坐在一起探讨了这个问题,我问:你们犹太民族为什么都格外聪明?他笑着说:“我没有你聪明,你这么厉害,把我的骨折当即就治好了,让我能够坚持两小时指挥下来,中国人还厉害些。”我说:“不,你们犹太民族从整个民族素质上是世界之冠,这里面肯定有一个教育上的原因。”在谈到这点的时候,他笑了笑,说:“我五岁之前,已经把我们本民族的经典背得滚瓜烂熟了。”我说:“那大概有多少字?” “大概有56万字,不多。”
    26.   想一想他们的教育方法,就是将本民族那些先知们撰写的经典,能够在早期就由父母教给自己的孩子,将它们背诵熟悉。这点,我们中国人能做到吗?我们中国人的父母现在都很忙,都赚钱去了,孩子交给谁了呢?交给保姆了,保姆又怎么教育孩子呢?保姆只想着自己去逛商店,看看衣服,看看花花世界,没办法管理教育这个孩子。交给爷爷奶奶吧,爷爷奶奶宠爱孩子,把他们都教成小皇帝、小公主,发起脾气来比谁都厉害。但是,犹太人的教育挺厉害,孩子教育从胎教开始,父母都天天自己主动诵读自己祖先的经典,孩子在摇窝里的时候,已经跟着唱诵经典,并且让他们观诵各种彩色的图案,吊在摇篮的上方,每一个环节都跟自己民族的根文化紧密相连。
    27.   然而,中国人近百年来可以说无经可读。自从蔡元培先生一声令下,取消了诵读以后,连儒学经典也没有诵读了。所以,在世界各国来说,我们这个民族是唯一的一个没有经可读的民族。像整个西方世界,在欧洲大陆上,走在他们城市和乡村,教堂的尖顶像一把利剑一样,刺破青天,直插云天,代表着他们的精神,就是这样屹立在那一方的土地上,去对自己祖先的经典——《圣经》进行教育。在伊斯兰国家,他们的经典是什么经?是《古兰经》。我在新加坡、在马来西亚这些地方的时候,上班中,到了礼拜的时刻,都要按时停下工作,跪在那里,规规矩矩诵读《古兰经》,读完了以后,才继续其它工作。包括国家机关都是这样,我去换签证的时候,只好在那里干等,等着他们念完了以后,起来再过来解释说:“先生,我们接着办公”。作为各个民族,他们按照经典的模式进行教育,都抓得很紧,我们为什么就不能有一部经典进行解读呢?
    28.   当然,中国的文化历史比较奇特。在早期的时候,由于儒学取代了道学,而儒学在明代又将《易经》的诵读也取消了,这样就慢慢淡化了能够开启自己智慧同步运行的这样一个教学模式。再加上近代,五四运动以后,就干脆全盘学习西方了,但是也没有真正完整地学习西方。现在走到农村,心里有一种酸酸的感受,很多北方农村,在村子中央都立起了教堂,我不知道他们立起教堂干什么。如果说我们的根文化立起来了,我们的文化实际上远远超越西方的任何宗教文化,老子的五千言远远超越于世界任何宗教的台阶之上,任何宗教对老子五千言只有顶礼膜拜的份,但是由于我们放弃了,我们不能解读她,所以不知道她的价值。
    29.   但是,近百年、近几十年来,西方的科学家可是关注到老子五千言,都纷纷在研究我们中国的老子五千言,包括德国,德国是一个哲学家的摇篮。在上一次世界杯的时候,记者在采访贝肯鲍尔的时候,他就谈到了这个观点,他说:我的一生,是老子伴随着我成长的,虽然我是一个足球皇帝,但是老子的思想影响了我的一生,包括我的成功和我的激流勇退,都是遵照老子的话来做的。他随身的提包里面,就有一本德文本的《老子》。后来记者又突发奇想,想整个去了解一下,就进行了随机抽样调查,随机抽样调查的结果,连我也感到赞叹,为什么呢?每四个德国家庭,就有一本《老子》。我们中国多少个家庭有一本《老子》?虽然没有统计,但是可以预见到,一万个家庭里面能否有一本,我看还难得说。因为国内很多地方,在推广诵读《老子》的时候,人家把眼睛一横:你那是搞宗教,不行吧?他们连老子思想是超越任何宗教思想的这个概念都还没有,仍错误地把自己局限在宗教的框架内,而没有上升到老子文化是最高的一个文明、文化、人文、哲学方面的大学问来学习,是对人的智能开启,是道德知识建立、道德质量建立的一个最佳读物,他们没有看到这一点。
    30.   所以,我们的差距还是很大的,但是随着时代需求的逐步加深,通过儒家的吟诵、佛家的念诵近十几年在全国的推广,大家对念诵有了初步的认识,那么下一步出现道家的观诵,也就一定会成为一种历史趋势。所以,我希望大家,在座的各位,都是道德根文化的实践者居多,文化爱好者居多,掌握《易经》也好,掌握医学的《黄帝内经》也好,掌握老子的五千言也好,道家文化掌握的最容易、最善巧方便的最佳方法和最佳途径,就是道家的观诵。把这个观诵一旦利用好、掌握好,其它的方法都可以被它带动起来,超越这一方法,快速开慧益智,同时也能够健康我们的心身。
    31.   为什么会出现这种现象,我的这些观点是否有依据?那么我们可以来看一看《易经》这本最原始、最祖本、也是人类最古老的一本经典,看看《易经》里面是怎么说的。我前面已经讲了内观诵读,内观观什么呢?内观,要从内观汉字到内观文,逐步深化,诚心敬意,发现其中的文出现。早期,由于我们心烦意乱、浮躁,难以内观内视。很多人从娘胎出生以后,两个眼睛睁开哇哇开始哭以后,可能一生都没有返观内视过,这个现象非常普遍,但是要想达到真正的文明,还非得要返观内视不可。我们的眼睛,就是我们的太阳和月亮,左眼就是太阳,右眼就是月亮,而中间天目那个地方,有一颗星星。我们就要主动让它们照耀自己的体内,那么就能够生出光明来,在这个光明当中就可以见到文,并且清晰地观到字。我们的内观主要是观汉字的小篆和甲骨文,小篆文和甲骨文这两种文是最常见的,还有一些异构文,可能我们没有经历,但是它会出现。实际上,在修身的实践当中,当文显图像的时候,这个图像的真实性就是最自然、最真切的内文明产生。自古真人无限度,诵读经典见观文。可以这样总结:许许多多的大智慧者,都具有经典诵读而内观图文的经历。
    32.   大家都知道著名的科学家爱因斯坦,可以说他创造了近代科技,他是个犹太人,从小也诵读经典。经典诵读给他带来什么好处?产生了什么现象呢?就是他的图文思维能力,我不知道你们研究过爱因斯坦的成长过程没有?他就曾经公开说过,而且好几次讲到:我的思维,就是把各种公式、符号,在大脑中改变成为图像,进行思维,而产生出它的智慧。所以,所有科学家没办法跟他比,因为他是主动而且又自觉地运用图像思维,来解决一切片面的智能左脑思维无法解决的问题。所以,他就成了科学的巨人,站在世界科学的巅峰上,使后来者无法顶替。他在二次世界大战期间,到美国的时候,一下轮船,就有美国科学家问他一个公式,说:您认为这个公式这样行不行?答案是什么样的?他把眼睛一眨巴:我不记公式。对方说:“您这样一个大师,为什么不背公式呢?”“那是书上有的,我为什么要花我的大脑去记它呢?”换句话说,就是他为什么要用这些东西来占据大脑有限的空间呢?他宝贵心智的空间、智慧的空间,是不允许这些东西来占有。
    33.   爱因斯坦也有一个名言,论教育:教育就是要把在学校所学的东西忘干净,剩下的那部分,那才叫知识。说得很不客气,对我们现在的智能教育,填鸭式拼命往孩子们的大脑里面塞东西,那可是一个非常深刻的清醒剂。但是人的注意力,因为都被高考吸引住、牵绊住了,不知道这样做的害处。实际上,只有在当前的教育背景下,改革无法实现,我们自己要用自己祖先的办法,来作一些补救,去可怜一下这些孩子们,去帮助一下这些孩子们,当然同时也在帮助我们自己,那么就用这些内文明的方法,来达到这一个目的。
    34.   慧性内文明的源起之地,是源起于《易经》,也就是我们刚才所讲过的三个根文化的来源。在《易经》里,就有一句:“内文明而外柔顺,以蒙大难(,文王以之。”这个内在的文明,体内的文明一旦实现了以后,那么就会内圣而外王。外王也就不浮躁,也就沉稳了,处理任何事物的时候,都能柔、顺,以柔克刚,顺理制胜。我举一个简单的例子,就是关于战争的例子,凡是浮躁的将帅,则必败无疑,楚霸王兵败乌江自刎。但是,有很多真正有一定内圣外王基础的将领,那非常厉害,有的人虽然没有达到内圣的层次,但是已经通过诵读经典达到了外王的状态,那也是相当厉害。比如说林彪,他学的是儒学,但他学会了沉稳,他的王道,已经表现出了一种柔、顺,从不表露出来,各种军事情报到了他案前的时候,他常常坐在一张作战地图下,一坐就是一两个小时,纹丝不动,盯着地图看。他的外王,实际上已经非常接近柔和顺的状态,所以林彪无愧于是一个常胜的将军,因为他的外王已经达到了一种在不同程度内文明支撑下的一种外柔顺,在“以蒙大难”里,标注得很清楚,逢遇任何困难挫折的时候(48),都能够凭自己的内圣外王状态顺利去通过。
    35.   “文王以之”,这个“文”在体内的产生,而王道能够修明,那么就能够驾驭自己的行为,就是在人世间的作为,促使自己的事业成功,促使自己的家庭顺遂。就像一个商人一样,一个经商的人,需不需要“文王以之”?同样需要,作一个商业决策、决断的时候,如果毛燥,如果受外界信息的左右,而没有启动自己本身的智慧,没有把自己的福德参与到这个解决的要素里面来,没有把商品诞生以后可能形成的社会市场、结构、前景、预景结合到自己的预测当中来,轻易、急躁下了结论,而不是柔顺以待,那就可能失败。而且,《易经》的乾卦,也讲到了:“见龙在田,天下文明。”只有见龙在田,才能够实现一种稳定的天下文明。这个“田”,就是说在体内见到了龙。大家相不相信在体内能见到龙啊?现代人可能就难以相信,但是在我们的体内应用黄老学说、伏羲的思想,进行经典诵读的时候,的确很容易在体内发现龙,我们就是龙的传人,我们就是炎黄的子孙,这句话是真实不虚的。
    36.   像在德国,就连洋人经过经典诵读,都能够诵读出自己体内的龙来,把他自己都吓坏了,急于到处在网上找信息,怎么一个洋人会成为一条龙呢?西方文化的教育,龙是凶恶的,龙是凶残的,它出来那还得了?会不会去害人?结果他预约我见面,跟他谈谈,谈了以后,他心里就很坦然了。后来,相继在脊柱上出现一条龙,一开始盘旋在体外或者体内,后来心、肝、脾、肺、肾五臓之中五条小龙都出来了,都合成一条龙。
    37.   这些现象,在一个日耳曼民族的德国人身上都能出现,那么在我们泱泱大国中华民族炎黄子孙身上却没有出现,我都觉得有些惭愧!我们为什么不能把我们的子孙教育都能验证出我们是龙的传人呢?这个龙的传人一旦出现,就“天下文明”了,就不需要法律教育了,这个“文明”就把天下给治理了,“无为而治”,因为人人体内都获得了“文明”。什么是对的,什么是错的,在自己体内朗如灯烛之照,根本不需要去看法律条文,去判断这一条是不是适合于自己?那一条是不是会把自己放到牢房里去?根本不用去看。
    38.   在西方研究的时候,我就说出了这个观点:中国文化最优秀的特点,西方人没办法比,他们就问为什么?我说:中国古代真正的道学文化,是教育人们抛弃法律,远离法律,法律对它已经不适用了;而我们引入西方文明的教育,是教我们如何去掌握法律,熟悉法律,还专门培养人研究法律,帮助自己去钻法律的漏洞,是不是这样呢?西方人就困在法律的这个圈圈里面,就像我们国家夏商时代初期的“画地为牢”,自己把自己给困住了,西方人的精神系统要获得真正的解脱,虽然他们现在高叫着人与自然和谐亲近,但是西方文化自身的限制,还达不到中国的那个层次。中国东方巨龙一旦苏醒,西方只有跟着中国屁股后面跑着转的份儿,根本没有办法使西方文化迅速赶上中国的文化,因为中国的文化,早在两千五百年前,就已经奠定了丰厚的基础,只是现代人丢掉了她。国人一旦苏醒过来,重新掌握,将这个修身内求的方法实践起来,“内取诸于身,外取诸于物”,达到天人合一的状态,就容易实现。
    39.   关键是我们要把老祖宗给我们设定的这些教科书,重新再运用起来,去用这些“内文明”的方法,进行诵读,激活我们的“图像思维”,达到爱因斯坦的水平。我有个愿望:就是希望中国人在近几年内,最快实现我们祖先为我们制定的最简单的学习方法,去达到西方人花几十年才能达到的那种大慧大智的教育状态。中国的文化教育,的确是很简单,就是经典诵读,只是要求正确诵读。其中,包括去诵什么样的经典和如何去诵这个内容,将这两点掌握好了,特别是在孩子们身上,将表现地非常轻松,很容易出现。
    40.   上一次,我在南宁参加他们公益的经典诵读,就是在举行“国学经典诵读形象大使”授予仪式的时候,我当场就让五个孩子上台,仅仅经过三四分钟的诵读,他们全部都能内观图文,每一个孩子都能观到体内的“文”,一点都不难的。对于孩子们,特别是在7岁之前,不用去逼他们,让他们闭着眼睛观,就能观出来。在12岁之前,要带着他们诵读几遍,观几遍,他们才能实现。当然,有的孩子过了8岁以后就难以开发出来,这也是一个特点,因为他的松果体钙化了,那是另外一回事,但总而言之,儿童身上对这个内文明的产生,是比较容易实现的。
    41.   我们掌握体内“文明”产生的地点——空腔地点,就是体内的“空”,而腹内的腔体有“空”,胸腔腔体有“空”,颅腔的腔体有“空”,“三腔三乾坤”,也叫三个“丹田”,所以说“见龙在田”。这个“田”,绝不是指农田、水田,如果是在农田、水田里见到龙了,那不是什么好事。
    42.   我们老家,在清代的时候也曾经有过龙降到农田里的故事,据我的爷爷、奶奶他们那一辈人介绍,龙掉到田里面,没有水,太阳一晒,苍蝇就上去叮,臭烘烘的,腥臭难闻,方圆几十里的人,都来挑水往那个龙的身上泼水,泼了以后,过了三天,忽然一阵雷雨下来,龙就腾起来,飞走了。这种现象,在中国很多的县志里面都有记载,你们可以去翻一翻,可以查到的。
    43.   保存在日本瑞龙寺的一条中国蛟龙标本,当时被一个农民打昏休克在岸上,用麻袋装起来,卖给日本人了。日本人把它制成了标本,那是一条蛟龙,因为是它是三个爪子。五爪龙才是真正的龙,三个爪子的是蛟龙。所以说,龙还是存在的,只是人类再也用肉眼难以见到它而已,因为它有一种隐显并存的功能。在体内同样能够“见龙在田”,使我们体内呈现一种光明状态。
    44.   由于我前面讲到的一些原因,我们要想真正把“内文明”求证出来,要从现在智能的模式,进入到两千五百年前我们祖先们慧智共运的模式当中去,那么我们就要去超越一些观念。要明白,近百年来我们一直生活在一种“以智解慧”的状态,用后天的智能去解析慧性文明时期我们祖先在慧观当中所记载的现象和知识,也就像一个太极图一样,白的是唯物,黑的是唯心,如果只是用白境去解释黑境,这样是解释不通的。
    45.   再一个就是“以儒解道”,用儒学去解析道学,儒学是智能之学,而不是智慧之学。在这种情况下,我们就要注意把它要颠倒过来。
    46.   还有一个,就是近几十年来非常可怕的“以西解中”现象,特别普遍,以“科学”的名义,来判中国文化的“死刑”,这个现象在近几十年来特别明显。我经常关注国内的新闻,有一个学者,在西方喝了一点“洋墨水”,对自己祖先的东西一窍不通,但是他却能够什么都懂。就像有的网友所说的那样:“一个理论物理科学家,除了理论物理不懂以外,其它学科他都是专家。”他对什么东西,都是以西解中,连中国的中医药学,在他眼里都成了伪科学,你看他有多厉害,他连中医是什么都不懂。他自己小时候吃过中药,中医中药把他“养大”,恢复了他的健康,但是他却要骂中医。这种智能的误区,在社会上可以说是比比皆是,举足可见。这些现象,幸亏已经到了真正的尾声阶段,他们再怎么唱也唱不出高亢的音符,他们该结束了。
    47.   我们将迎来纠正智能错误,同时调动大脑左脑和右脑思维,慧智同运思维的时代已经开始了。因为爱因斯坦的那种图文思维本身,早在几十年前为我们的思维奠定了一个基础,只是西方的科学家没有发现我们东方根文化当中的思维模型,不知道中国文化的诵读神髓,所以他们到现在也没有研究明白。把爱因斯坦的大脑,从颅腔里面挖出来,摆弄研究了这么多年,得出的结论,就是他的大脑比常人略重多少克,其它方面就不知道为什么了,甚至连早在黄帝时期《黄帝内经》中就揭示过的“心为神宅,脑为神府”这个结论,他们都没有关注到,没有考究,所以他们想揭示人类智慧的奥秘,还有很长的一段路要走。但是这些东西,我们就可以在自己的文化当中找到,建立一个“以慧解道,以慧释儒,以中解西”的思维模式,这样,我们就能站在智慧的高峰上,去看世界的文化,建立自己的“内文明”和“外文明”。
    48.   我在西方和东南亚讲学的时候,碰到很多人,他们也很刁钻古怪,很多东西都是以自己民族的东西自豪,认为自己的东西才是最好的,但是一旦进行文化比较以后,还是心悦诚服地承认:中国老子的思想,在世界上才是最伟大的。包括联合国文教卫组织的几个小组,在讨论的时候,其中有一个学者就发表了这样的观点:中国孔子的思想,跟《圣经》基督的思想是同一个层面上的文化;唯独老子的思想,那才是人类精神的智慧殿堂。一部老子“五千言”,就是一张人类心灵约会的请柬,只要去诵读,老子就能给予智慧。这是国际上一位学者的认识。上一次,我带到道学国际论坛参加会议的一位德国女士,花了十几年的时间,用铜丝剪成拼音字母,把老子五千言全部都拼写出来,她通过这个拼写的过程,就激活了自己的图像思维和智慧,她体悟到了“与老子居,与老子谋”的一种愉悦和快乐,觉得非常幸福。
    49.   所以,我们需要把世界上这些现象归纳起来,总结出我们认识万物的一种“内文明”思维方法的培养方法。这个培养,应当把握住国学文化实践的神髓,而不是泛泛去研究我们的国学,而是要把其中的神髓真正把握住,要立起一个宏愿,要立起一个大志向,来修这个“德道”,按照老子所指给我们的方向,通过修德来明道,建立起道德人生观,并且充分利用观诵经典,来建立“内文明”。这个“内文明”一旦建立起来,那么我们的教育就会显得很轻松,人们的智慧状态和创造力,就可以成倍增长,整个中华民族的创造力,就可以恢复到十五世纪之前的状态。
    50.   为什么说道家的经典是诵读的经典,是教科书?只要把《德道经》帛书版本五十四章的“观眇”和通行本《道德经》第一章的“观妙”一比较就知道其中的缘由了。
    51.   在汉代,为了将道学的教学理论和方法边缘化、妖魔化,由汉武帝和田酚出头,组织了大量的人力来编修经典,包括对老子五千言也进行了改写,将它诵读课本的性质全部做了改动,将其改成只是一种理论性、哲理性的文章。但是帛书版《老子》,就是供给我们诵读的。比如说,这一章一共64个字,但是通行本中就删掉了九个字。其中,删掉了八个“也”字,而这个“也”字却是非常关键,它是启动我们内在肾气能量的一个“符”、一个“文”。当然,现在是字,但是只要诵读它,内观它,那么体内的肾气就会被调动。
    52.   我曾经在大学里讲课的时候,举了一个例子,人类的肾气是先天之本,人类的智慧,也要靠这个“也”字内在背后的能量,来支撑我们的大脑思维。像小孩子读书,都有这样的共性:当他没谈恋爱之前,初中、高中的学习成绩很稳定;但是一旦谈了恋爱,学习成绩很快就滑了下来。很多人不知道其中的生理原因,老师也是莫名其妙,为什么这个孩子本来是前五名,怎么一下子掉到了几十名?期间的原因,常常跟来月经有关系,跟谈恋爱有关系。为什么?那是因为这个“也”字后面的肾气能量,不再循着脊髓到达大脑了,而是从肾区命门这个地方开始下滑了,通过尾闾化成了后天的物质,要么化成经血外流,要么变成精液的液体而释放,消耗了大量的能量,所以智慧也就会下滑。
    53.   所以古人用字都有甚深的意义,并不是儒家和我们现代的解释,“之乎者也”只是语气的助词,错! “之乎者也”,恰好就是我们唤醒生命内在能量的符号和图形,这样来定义,那才是真正把握了我们的文化。
    54.   中国文化的特点,儒家后来很多是解释不通的,但是道家都能解释通。我在湖南讲课的时候,就提出了一个命题,中国文化和世界文化当中有一个奇异的特征,大家都在问,但是很少有学者能解释,虽然我能够解释,但是不会全部进行解释,只会部分进行解释。你们看过《大红灯笼高高挂》没有?那个电影在国内可能是禁放的,在国外是公放的,很多外国人看了以后,就觉得奇怪,中国的有钱人,很多地主、财主为什么那么奇怪要娶三妻四妾呢?西方人为什么就没有多娶的现象呢?再延伸一下,中国皇帝都是三宫六院、七十二妃,而西方任何一个皇帝都没有。为什么会产生这样一个文化现象,大家思考过没有?这里面只有道家能解释清楚,儒家是错误继承了轴心时代以前的定制,在轴心时代应该将这一习惯彻底革除,人们失去了“尊道贵德”机制的时候,这些生活体制已经不是“益生”,而是“害生”了。中国的皇帝,都很可怜,短命,他们把自己的性命,就交给这个了。因为他们的心灵、他们的道德内在品质,没有达到“内文明”,并不具备承受三宫六院、七十二妃这种架构来提升生命精神能量的前提和基础。更可笑的是,民间还盲目进行仿效,那就更是挖骨的钢刀、催命的毒药,只是人们在智能的误区当中,不知道这个关键点而已。这是由文化的差异带来的,其中也表现在对文化的解读上面。
    55.   在两千五百年以前,大量的文章当中,使用的是四言文、五言文、六言文、七言文,而人们错误地理解这种格局只是韵律所限制,是一种规矩。这种行文方式是不是规矩呢?是规矩,也不是规矩,而是句式对应体内的需要。比如说七个字的诵读,一般百会、泥丸、喉区、中丹田、胃区、下丹田和会阴区,这是七言绝句所必须内观的部位。而《德道经》和《黄帝四经》里面,最常见的是四言。四言诵读,最强调要把握的区域,就是颅腔区、胸腔区、腹腔区、会阴区,要内观这四个“田”,去主动结合。而且,这个“也”字都要主动去落实在会阴区这里,包括“众眇之门”的“门”,如果把这个门打开,跟地气联通了,大量的地气进入体内,那么饭量就会减少,精神就会更饱满,就会进入一种长生久视之地,这就是道家内观诵读的奥秘。
    56.   把内在的精神文明建立起来,行为全部就都规范了。“内文明”,在两千五百年以前是普遍的现象。我们在研究历史的时候,都可以找到历史的踪迹,特别是是在《庄子》里面,记载了大量的这样的史实,只是他使用了文言文的记载,使用了当时社会的表述特征,我们只有进入到他的那个意境当中,才能够读懂。但是在两千五百年以后,也曾经有过这种文明大放异彩的时候,就是在汉唐两个时代。汉代曾经掀起了两个波潮,历史规律是非常容易重演的。汉之前的秦朝,是因为酷法而亡,这是个重要的特点,两世就亡掉了,就被替代。到了汉代,就迎来了“文景之治”和“光武中兴”。“文景之治”和“光武中兴”最大的特点,就是遵循黄老思想治国。大家看过《汉武帝》这部电视剧吧?汉武帝的祖奶奶,是窦太后。窦太后就坚持孙儿一定要读黄老,而汉武帝桀骜不驯,坚决不同意,明着、暗着跟窦太后对着干,就产生了一种叛逆心理,所以在汉武帝的时候,就出现了“罢黜百家,独尊儒术”的历史景观。但是,毕竟黄老思想和老子五千言给当时的经济发展和文明昌盛,带来了丰硕的成果,那个时候也是“监狱成空”,监狱里面没犯人,这就可以检验一个社会的无为而治和道德水准。仓库里面堆积的粮食,都变成了粉末,吃不完。钱库里面串钱的麻绳,也烂掉了,无法一吊一吊去清数,已经达到那个富足殷实的状态。
    57.   在唐代,也出现了一次应用黄老思想和经典诵读,内观文明而达到社会精神文明鼎盛的时期。唐代时建立在什么基础之上?其实是汉代的历史重演,连形式都基本差不多,唐前面是隋朝,隋朝也是二世而亡。因为隋朝的第一任皇帝开始迷信佛法,在全国大肆兴建佛寺,把国家的资源都投到新建寺庙上去了,用国家的资金去供养大量的僧人,这样就埋下了一个引起社会动乱的祸胎,导致二世而亡,但这也为唐代重新启用老子五千言奠定了基础,所以带来了“贞观之治”和“开元盛世”。到现在,唐朝都成为世界各国所敬仰的一个历史时期。在“贞观之治”和“开元盛世”中,使用的什么方法呢?就是经典诵读,而且人手一本,当时皇帝亲自动手给“五千言”写批注,写注释,然后发布政令,全国读书人、当官的和庶民百姓,都要人手一本,统统诵读,而且还要考试,根据这个成绩,考虑人员的升迁留用。
    58.   我在湖南的时候,跟他们政治党校的一个校长交谈,我就说了一个笑话,我说:实际上,治理腐败很容易,把“五千言”作为考核、升官、评级的一项措施,命令每一个党员干部全部都诵读起来,不出一年,餐馆里面吃吃喝喝的现象马上就会消失了。他问:为什么?我说:读了老子以后,说不定吃肉就要拉稀,体内的素食机能就无为启动了,那还敢吃吗,对不对?一喝酒,头就晕,头就要裂开,那还敢喝吗?这就无为而治给治好了,贪得无厌的烦躁情绪,也就下降了。他说:品质怎么提升呢?我说:只要走进历史,去看看唐代史就知道,当时的官员、学子,一诵读以后,他们的精神面貌就发生了改观。唐朝为什么诞生了那么多大诗人?那些诗人写的诗,到现在还脍炙人口,其中的意境,我们现在是无法达到的,那可都是老子思想赐予的,背后就含有老子功劳,只是我们现代人不知道而已。
    59.   有幸的是,我观察到一个现象,所以我敢预言。近代,国民党经过孙中山和蒋介石的二世而亡,败逃台湾,毛主席带领中国共产党夺得了政权,经过这几十年的摸爬滚打和失败跌荡的兴替,已近逐步走近老子思想。可能在近十年内,老子思想会全面启用,这也是老子思想的第三次被启用。如果从经济学的观点、人口学的观点及社会学的观点,来分析看,汉代人口比唐朝要少得多,当时的生产力要低下得多,但当时已经创造了奇迹,唐朝创造的奇迹震动了整个世界。我们这一次真正全面启用老子的思想,启用他的哲学思想,启用他的内文明思想,达到个人的内在文明、家庭的和谐文明以及社会的大文明时,那么这种生产力的推动力量,将是世界上最强大的力量,一定能将中华文明推向整个世界民族之林的巅峰,引领整个世界文明的前进。大家相不相信?我是有这个信心的!
    60.   在历史上有非常鲜活的例子,那就是毛泽东主席和蒋介石。毛主席是采用道家的学说,采用兵家、法家和史家的学术,而蒋介石采用的是儒家思想和从美国给他带来的基督教思想,所以他一定要败。为什么?中国这种奇特的文化现象,在革命的早期,从欧洲留学回来的学子,从苏联回来的“布尔什维克”,他们组成了一个班子闹革命,就是不成功,唯独把毛泽东这个“从山沟沟里走出来的马克思主义者“请出来,就能跻身中华,获得胜利。这是为什么呢?这里面的奥妙关键在“山沟沟里”,那指的是他身上含有的深厚中华根文化底蕴,他才能够纵横捭阖地引领所有西方的文化思想和政治思想。当然,毛泽东主席他是一位治乱的英雄,所以《推背图》里说“称王之合在秦州”。解放以后,他对黄老思想的研究没能更深入进去,只是在史学、兵学、文学这方面有研究,特别是对历史这方面研究得比较深,后劲就显得有点不足,所以《推背图》对他有中肯的预见,预见到后来,他要用“内圣”来操纵“外王”进行治理的时候,就显得后劲不足了,所以就犯了一点错误。当然,功过应该准确去评判。在这里,我们就不再去讨论了。
    61.   当然,在史学的角度,我们也要认清这个脉络,才能正确评判和掌握我们的道学思想在人体生命“内文明”当中产生的作用。伏羲画卦,就是“内文明”的外在记录。根据《易经》,根据黄老思想,我们完全可以实现个人的“内文明”。这个“内文明”一旦产生,我们的生命现象和体内的变化,都会进入到一个更明显的状态。
    62.   为什么说“内文明”很重要呢?历史上很多例子都证明了这一点。唐朝就用“内文明”的显化,来建设长安城,它建得非常科学。在长安城的建造过程当中,仿照了大脑的皮层、质层、核心层三层,都是仿生外用。包括类似“脑脊液”的这条河,当时的“玄武门之变”就是在这个区域发生的,就是遏制了长安城的喉颈区。长安城,就是仿照“内文明”观察所得,而变更社会治理的方案,建设都城,都是采用了这些理论和方法,形成“八水绕长安”的都市格局。
    63.   现在建设城市不注意水,实际上就自己摧垮了自己。我在德国讲学的时候,德国人就讲:希特勒最大的贡献,就是在德国修建了大量的水池,让这些水池绕着城市而经过。我说:对!这一项,可算得上是他的功德,使德国人的后代水起风生,获得了这个风水的营养,这的确是把握了中国文化中点到的现象。
    64.   我们研究“内文明”在外文明的应用,四川的都江堰也是比较典型的案例。都江堰这个地区的仿生学原理,如果大家可以内观的话,我相信当时李氏父子是能够内观的,或者说在内观的基础上,有更高级生命来提醒他们,如何将内观到的情况外延应用。这个结构图像什么呢?它其实就是一个“也”字的外用,也就是说,人类下腹部生殖器尿液分泌排泄系统的外用。当然,我们没有更多的时间去分析它,只是在这里提一下,这就是老子所讲的“上善治水”。自己内部的“上善治水”弄好了,那么外部的“上善治水”也就解决了,就不会轻易地去修三峡大坝、长江大坝了,在自己的动脉和静脉上面,装上两个“止血钳”,把它的流量变细,造成自然灾害的加重,就不会犯傻了,就会更多以子孙后代的利益为选择,而不会以短时期政治利益或者是经济利益为抉择,眼光就会变得更远了。
    65.   在西方,有一位伟大的科学家,叫李约瑟,他是英国的一位科学家,他就独具慧眼,认为中国人的智慧是世界上独一无二的,是超前的。西方有些科学家,研究出来中国孩子的智商普遍比西欧同龄的孩子高二十个百分点,只是我们没有很好去应用,相反是用一种智能的教育方法去抹杀、扼杀他们的慧性。李约瑟还有个结论,就是公元三世纪到公元十三世纪,中国的科学技术水平为西欧所望尘莫及,中国的科学发明和发现远远超越同时代的欧洲。尤其是在十五世纪之前,近代科学赖以发展的重大发明创造,约有一半来自中国。中国对世界文明发展做出的贡献,绝不只是“四大发明”,也不是十大发明、百项发明等词语所能概括的。不仅是西方人过去不知道这些,中国人自己也不清楚。我们是糊涂子孙,人家都说中国人对自己祖先的东西是糊涂的,是贱卖的,没有重视。
    66.   实际上,文明的发展,黄老思想,就是道家的内观诵读方式,在儒家还保存过一段历史时期,也就是说,读《易经》作为必修课没有被抛弃之前,中国的发明创造能力是世界最强的。仅仅一部《易经》没有被抛弃使用,就能使整个中华民族的创造能力得以保持,而维持到明朝的中后期,到了清代才迅速下滑,跌落到了世界的尾部。为什么呢?因为清代出现了八股文,八股文一出,经说就亡了,就不再诵读《易经》了。儒家所有的经典当中,唯独只有这部《易经》具有开慧益智的作用,把它以清除掉以后,那么就是纯粹的智能教育了。
    67.   然而,我们的智能教育是没办法与西方早在亚里士多德时代就已经构建起来的逻辑推理、实验证伪强大阵容去比拟的,因为儒家走的是一条“犬儒”的路线,让莘莘学子都去追求“万般皆下品,唯有读书高”了,读书就是为了做官,做官就是为了赚钱,就是为了扬名立万,没有立足在社会发展和科目发展这个领域上,并没有像道家那样包罗万象,所以就迅速下滑了。
    68.   在中国这样一个历史背景和文化土壤的现状当中,光去应用西方的知识来挽救我们是远远不够的,一定要像西方哲人所讲的,走到自己祖先的井泉当中,从根文化的井泉当中,去汲取营养,我们才有超越西方的可能。否则,如果我们不去接续我们祖先的根文化,不用我们的根文化区滋养我们自己和我们的后代,那么我们可能还要跟在西方人的屁股后面,再爬行百年之久。因为他们已经有近百年的积累,我们还是有可能被他们当作“世界加工厂”来对待,因为我们的发明创造,不可能赶上他们。相反,在他们具备直觉和灵感的前提下,吸收和学习中国的方法,掌握中国的经典加以应用,他们还会在现有的基础上迅速向前推进。
    69.   这点,我在德国教学的时候是深有体会的,西方人诵读中国的《老子》,开慧益智的作用非常明显,比中国的华侨要敏锐十倍以上,所以我心里头忧心忡忡,什么时候我们的国人才能真正重视起我们祖先的东西,因为西方人一旦发现了,就会一心扑进去,继续不断去实践,去提升自己内在的文明。
    70.   前几天,还有一位德国的老太太,她写了一封信给我,感谢我介绍了这么光明的东西让她实践,这是中国文化最巅峰的内容,使她体内的龙能够在全身运动,在体外运动,这真是太好了,这是她所学所有中国文化当中最优秀的内容。这位老太太,给我写了这么一封感谢信。
    71.   所以,从他们的这些语言思维和实践以后的成果当中,我就有一种急迫感,所以国内一有邀请,我一定会赶回来进行讲解,不追求什么报酬,就是为了把世界各地的这种信息,传达给我们的爱好者,希望大家都能重视我们的根文化,一起研究根文化,一起去实践、推广、普及这个内在精神文明,共同实现我们民族的复兴,因为在这个时代,既有机遇,也有风险。
    72.   我前面已经讲了西方文化是“羊文化”,但是它也同时诞生了“狼文化”。所谓“羊文化”,就是他们的《圣经》文化;所谓“狼文化”就是他们的经济、战争、舰队文化,包括“鸦片战争”,八国联军进军北京,以及当年的远征军征服玛雅人,焚烧玛雅的典籍,屠杀玛雅的智者,等等现象,都是这个“羊文化”和“狼文化”的结晶。但是,中国文化可惜没有走上这样一条路,中国的文化当中有三种文化。哪三种文化呢?一种,就是以伏羲、黄帝、老子为代表的龙文化;一种,是以孔子和后代改良儒学创建的“羊文化”,以及汉代后期构建起来的“犬文化”。出于这样的状态,“羊文化”和“犬文化”不足以抵御西方的“狼文化”,所以我们在近百年当中无力还手。
    73.   在我个人看来,唯独有中国的龙文化,才能将目前世界各经济强国重新构治的狼羊文化现象突破。周围都是这些狼羊文化在环视。一头被驯服的“犬”和一大批“羊”,根本无法应付众狼环视的国际商业环境。大家看一看,很多在国际上做生意的浙江商人的遭遇是什么?被人家打了一闷棍,人家有话语权,说这个是仿造的,就是仿造的;说这个要退回去,就要退回去,我们国内就沦为西方的加工厂,要仰人鼻息才能搞好经济发展。前一段时间,在经济一滑坡的时候,在广东就倒闭了大量的加工厂,损失是很惨重的,国家工会也拿出来一部分钱来解围。这样的话,我看很难平静和平稳。
    74.   孔子也曾经说过:老子“犹龙也”。奔跑的野兽,可以在地上设陷阱把它捉住;水里游动的鱼儿,可以用一根丝线挂一个香饵把它钓起来;天上的飞鸟,可以用弓箭把它射下来,唯独老子“见首不见尾”,无法看清楚和“捕捉”他。
    75.   我们在一个“狼文化”环视的世界商业环境当中,如何去生存而长立于不败之地呢?那就是不能被它们用陷阱逮住,不能被它们用绳索捆住,不能被它们用丝线钓住,也不能让它们用弓箭射下来,那么也只有老子的思想才具备这样一种能力。
    76.   浙江作为经济发展的大省,作为与世界商业环境接轨的一个重要渠道,在这个省里面展开对老子思想的学习,实践“内文明”,提升我们的创造力,只要把我们的龙文化恢复起来,将“内文明”建立起来,我们就能在当前复杂的世界背景当中,使我们的民族工业得到长足的发展,使我们这个国家的精神面貌、家庭的精神面貌、个人的精神面貌、企业员工的精神面貌,都获得一种良好的改变。所以,我们对经典诵读的意义,一定要从深层次去看,把这些理论的元素、原理把握住,把正确的方向把握住。
    77.   孔子曾经五次问道于老子,他们是师徒关系。我在这里,并没有任何批评儒学的意味,当然值得批评的是改良儒学,是宋明以后僵化的儒学,那的确是唯智能的,没有慧性的,那个是需要清理的。
    78.   在当前社会,我们应该将原汁原味的儒学和老子思想结合起来,将我们的头脑当中的慧和智同步运用起来,让我们去共同走近老子和孔子,使我们的生命得到完整的升华。
    79.   由于时间关系,就讲这么多,谢谢大家的聆听!

    34 The cradle of Wisdom Culture is Yi Jing which is also the home of three root cultures we just mentioned. One sentence in Yi Jing says “One person is cultured and treats others gently. Emperor Wen suffered a great catastrophe”. Once this internal culture is realized in one person, he will not be blundering and will be sedate which means he will have internal saint and outside king. He can deal with every thing gently and flexibly. Let me give an example regarding wars. If a general is blundering, he will fail for certain, e.g. King Chuba killed himself beside Wu River after he was defeated by Bang Liu. Those generals with internal saints and outside kings are something. Even those who have only achieved outside kings through reading are also very excellent. For example, Biao Lin learned Confucianism, but he was very imperturbing. His King Tao made him to appear gentle and submissive. He never expresses his emotions or thoughts. When a large number of military messages came to him, he always sat before a military map for one to two hours, staring at the map and never moving his body. Actually his outside king has showed gentleness and suppleness, so he is worthy of a general who always win because his outside king is supported by internal cultures at different level. It is clearly noted in “suffered a great catastrophe” that a person with internal saint and outside king can conquer any difficulty.

    “King Wen Yi Zhi”, if “Wen”can appear in one’s body and the kingcraft can be improved, then this man can control his behaviors in the world and make his career success. Does a business man need “King Wen Yi Zhi”? The answer is yes. When the business man is making decision, if he is impetuous and controlled by outside information, does not use his own wisdom and Fu De, does not predict the market, the structure and the foreground of the product, does not treat things with gentleness, then maybe he will fail. Furthermore, Qian Gua in “I Ching: Book Of Changes”says “if you can see the dragon in the field in your body, the stable internal culture in your body will be realized”. This “field”, means you can see the dragon in your body. Do you believe you can see the dragon in your body? It is hard for the modern to believe, but when we apply Huang and Lao theory and Fuxi idea in our bodies and read the sutra, we can easily discover the dragon. We are the offspring of dragon, we are the children of Emperor Yan and Huang. This is as true as a die.

    A German saw dragons in his body through reading sutras. This scared him greatly. Then he searched on the internet for the answer why a Western person can become a dragon. In Western education, dragon is atrocious and fierce. If it will hurt others after it comes out? He asked to see me and had a talk with me. Then he set his heart at rest. Afterward a dragon appeared in his spine. At the beginning, the dragon hovers outside or in his body, then five little dragons came out in his heart, liver, spleen, lung and kidney and finally they merged into one dragon.

    1. Greetings!

    2. The Forum of Chinese Literature and Medicine in Changsha invited me over to participate. Right after I am done with it, I rushed over here to join this study event in response to their invitation in Taizhou. Everyone in audience is a master, an expert, a scholar, therefore I came here to learn from you.

    3. Since our foundational culture is profound, just like the broad oceans, we can hardly unveil it completely even with devotion of our whole life. I will present some findings and thoughts from my own studies and practices to exchange ideas and interact with all of you. I hope you will enjoy them and also comment or criticize freely. In this way, we could maintain good atmosphere for scholar interaction. This serves as my brief introduction.

    4. Today, I would like to talk about "reciting classics of Dao De civilization".

    5. Our state has advocated "moral civilization". How to manage ethnic renaissance and construct harmonic society? It involves issues in building moral spiritual civilization.

    6. Building moral spiritual civilization, shortened as "moral civilization", is phrased even simpler as "civilization" in the ancient time . Why "civilization" is related to reciting classics? I would like to have a discussion for this topic.

    7. Nowadays, we have been building socialist spiritual civilization, which is closely related to recitation of inner ??? in Dao philosophy classics. How to truthfully build spiritual civilization well? This question evolves as a result of some problems, including resistance for reforming education industry, rapid deterioration of students' and adults' morality, however our education seems helpless and its reforming is hard to be advanced. Our many administrative measures and study methods, etc, are unable to radically dissolve people's sole pursuit for fortune, and fail to make people to rectify their wrong epistemology, and in addition to build a right outlook on life.

    8. In my option, through my many years research, the simplest and most forthright way to build spiritual civilization lies in our foundational culture. It is in our Confucian philosophy, Huangdi philosophy and Laozi philosophy.

    9. Chinese foundational culture was founded by three great people. In the fist stage, Fuxi created Yi Dao culture. The feature of Yi Dao culture is, Fuxi, with his complete understanding and great intelligence, applied his observation for both inner body and universe and created Hetu deduction, which represents the rule of change for total of all matters by simplest symbols. Creation of Yi Dao culture laid down most substantial foundation for Chinese culture. It also prevented Chinese culture from eliminating by western culture in the long and tough history of several thousand years, within which, Chinese culture has held strong and never been broken.

    10. In the second stage, Chinese culture shaped up in the times of Xuanyuan's Fa Dao culture, which manifests Dao through Fa. Certainly, the Fa Dao culture roots in "Huang Di Shi Jing". There are relatively few "Huang Di Shi Jing" annotations on the market, including one from Taiwan, one from a scholar in Wuhan, and one from a scholar in Beijing. After reviewing those annotations, I think none of them necessarily reflects the historical time and background when the book itself was written. Therefore, I would want to annotate it as well, but has not finished due to lack of time. From "Huang Di Shi Jing", we could discover that, Xuanyuan's Fa Dao philosophy, especially Form and Name thoughts, contributes a critical portion in "Huang Di Shi Jing". It is a classic for self-cultivation and nation-ruling. However it was eliminated by Han Wu emperor in Han dynasty and has been unnoticed ever since then. Until 1973, it was re-discovered in Mawangdui,Hunan, China.

    11. In the third stage, it is Laozi's De Dao culture. Boshu version of "De Dao Jing" is for sure the one of its kind with greatest completeness and reveals Laozi's philosophy most, which is Five Thousand Words to manifest Dao through De.

    12. Those three systems constitutes our foundational culture. To understand it, the most radical and foremost requirement is to utilize both left and right brain at the same time. You may ask, are not we utilizing both left and right brain at the same time to perceive? I can put it this way, every one in the audience, including myself, could not proudly declare that he is utilizing both left and right brain at the same time. Even until now, I am still using one side of my brain, not like our ancestors in 2500 years ago, always utilized left and right brain at the same time.

    13. This is because 2500 years later, our brain is used to think with left side, without activating right side. Therefore, when many people nowadays read Fuxi's "Yi Jing", it is regarded as perceiving something without trying to see the big picture. when reading Xuanyuan's "Huang Di Shi Jing", only outline, instead of complete picture, could be grasped. When reading Laozi's De Dao culture, only a little superficial philosophical thoughts, instead of the whole inside connotation, could be conceived. Why is this the case? Cause 2500 years ago, the whole world, the whole solar system entered a dark age, dark night age, in Milky Way galaxy. Human being's right brain, except for a few people, became inactive. The loss of this energy forced human being to stop thinking with the right brain, and it accounts for modern people not being able to understand ancestor's philosophy and culture directly.

    22. in this field of the moral education and publicity,moral enlightenment , the used methods  must  help the audience, achieve the effect of psychosomatic,otherwise they will not attract them.
    For example, the classical Confucianism, Taoism and the classical English reading, and then compared to three,the classical Taoism reading has advantage.
    Laozi DeDaoJing, she is not a religious classics, also is not a simple discussion of philosophy, but a classic including all the world's the most precious treasure.
    many patients and sub-health, in the process of reading every word in DeDaoJing, harvest health,and lost disease.
    Originally ,a revolting and  rebellious bad-tempered, often occurred the mood calm after having read her .
    It's wonderful positive effect on human, and it happen in the process of subtle.
    Indeed, it is a kind of speacially way through  DeDaoJing recitation to complete the moral education. As long as the five classical recitation of persistence, in the two fields of psychosomatic, mental health, state will save  a lot of spending, our families will lessen a lot of trouble.
    If you believe, you can recommend parents to read DeDaoJing.  After reading three months, they will become the mood cheerful.Retire the syndrome, retirement autism, etc, will disappear without a trace. Even possible alzheimer's disease will disappear, it isn't necessary to be afraid of them out and in their necks hang a sign,or a key.

    23. Because it can also make their spirit and soul healthy,  brain restoration and body anti-aging.
    It help children to start their right brain thinking to let their left brain and right brain think synchronously, and achieve internal quality improvement on astronomy, geography, Ming general.
        So we promote the DeDaoJing recitation, and YiJing recitation that can construct excellent quality of human being.
        The common objective, is to establish spirit civilization in everyone's mind, body.when the spiritual civilization is established through reading her silently, to achieve the effect is to civilize  youselves,which is the target of  showing such a moral practice, and then internal civilization is presented.
    She will not have any haste makes waste, deliberately to rush, it completely is a naturally born internal state of civilization. As long as we insist on doing, it must be realized.

        37.  These phenomena could appear in a Nordic German, but can not appear in the Chinese descents of such a great nation. I’m so much ashamed of it! Why can’t all of our Chinese descents validate that we are the descendants of the dragon? Once the dragon appear, the civilization of the world will appear, and then we have no use for the education of law. Because this “civilization” has governed the world by doing nothing that goes against nature. Since everyone acquire the “civilization” internal to the body, they can distinguish what’s right and what’s wrong, as if a candle light shine in the body. They needn’t look for the article of law to judge which clause adapts to themselves or which clause will put them to prison. They never need to look for it.
        38.  When I did my research in the west, I put forward this point of view: The occidental are no match for the best characteristic of Chinese culture. They asked why? I said, in the ancientry of China, the genuine culture of Daoism educated people to abandon the law and keep away from the law because the law is not applicable to them. We import the education of west civilization which teach us how to master and be familiar with laws, even bring up the professional to do research for laws to help themselves to exploit an advantage by the law. Is that right? The occidentals are stranded in this circle as if the people ‘drew a circle in the ground to be a prison’ in the early Xia Shang era in our country. They bar up themselves. The occidentals want to set their spirit-system free verily, although they halloo the harmony and intimity between human beings and the nature, but limited by the western culture itself, they cannot reach the level of China. Once the orient huge dragon in China come round, the occidental can only tail after China, they have no way to catch up with the Chinese culture rapidly. This is because of that Chinese culture had established a rich and generous foundation in 2,500 years ago. Regrettably, the modernists have discarded it. Once our countrymen come round, when we master and practice the method of moral culture in demand over again, ‘take from the body inside and take from the matter outside’, achieve the state of unity of heaven and human beings, then we can achieve easily.
        39.  The sticking point is we shall apply the textbook that the ancestors left us, apply the method of ‘internal civilization’, keep chanting and activate our ‘thought of image’, to achieve the level of Einstein. I have a wish: I hope in resent several years, Chinese people will carry out the most simply learning method that our ancestors established. And then attain the state of education of great wisdom that the occidental have spent several decades to attain. The education of Chinese culture is really simple, that is sutra chanting, but it requires the correct chanting methods. There are two points above others, they are which sutra to chant and how to chant the sutra. If master these two points very well, especially in children, they can performe free and relaxed and appear very easily.
        40. Last time, in Nanning, I attended their sutra chanting for commonweal. In the ceremony that awarding ‘the Image Ambassador of sutra chanting’, I let 5 children to go up onto the platform. After having chanted for only 3 or 4 minutes, all of them can saw the image and characters by Insight Meditation. Every child can introspect the ‘characters’ in the body,. It isn’t difficult at all. To children, especially before 7 years old, let them close their eyes and vipassana without constrain, they can introspect the ‘characters’ in the body. To a child before 12 years old, help them chanting sutra and introspecting for several times, they can see the image and characters. Of course, some children older than 8 years are difficult to exploit this potential. It is a characteristic that their conarium had been calcified. This is another thing. But all in all, internal civilization may come into being in children more easily.

    41.We should be clear that, the location where internal civilization sparks --- the hollow spot, is internal hollowness. There is hollowness in abdominal cavity, thoracic cavity and cranial cavity, so as to say "three cavity, three qiankun", which are also named three "dantian". Therefore, "seeing a dragon in a tian" absolutely does not mean seeing a dragon in a farming field. It is not a good thing, if it turns out to be the case.

    42.In my hometown, there is a story about a dragon falling into a farming field in Qin dynasty. Per my grandfather and grandmother's contemporaries, that dragon fell into the farming field. Without water, after exposed to sunlight and bitten by flies, it stunk badly. Folks in that neighborhood carried water to flush and wet that dragon. After three days, all of sudden, a thunderstorm hit and, with that help, that dragon flew away. Those kinds of stories were recorded in many annals of counties in China.

    43.One specimen of dragon kept in Ruilong Temple in Japan was a dragon, which was hit shocked, bagged and sold to a Japanese. That Japanese turned it into a specimen. That dragon was a flood dragon, since it only has three talons. Only those with five talons are real dragons. Therefore, dragons do exist. But human could not see dragons with their naked eyes, because they are capable of being either visible or invisible. In our inner body, "seeing a dragon in a tian" could appear and make our inside bright.

    44.Due to some reasons I mentioned before, to realize "inner civilization", we have to go beyond our current acquired wisdom-only mode and transcend some ideology to enter a mode of both intelligence and wisdom, which our ancestors utilized 2500 years ago. We should be clear that, in recent nearly 100 years, we have been under a condition of "interpreting intelligence with wisdom", which is to say, using acquired wisdom to interpret those phenomenon and knowledge recorded by our ancestors in the age of innate intelligence civilization. It is like a Taiji graph, white part is materialistic and black part is idealistic. If we would interpret what is in black part with those in the white part, it does not hold.

    45. In addition, "interpreting Dao with Confucianism", which is to interpret Dao philosophy with Confucianism, does not hold either since Confucianism is a doctrine of wisdom, not a doctrine of both wisdom and intelligence. In this situation, we should make sure to revert it.

    46. Another one is a formidable and very common phenomenon of "interpreting Chinese culture with westerners'". It tries to demolishes Chinese culture, in name of "science". This phenomenon became especially popular in recent decades. I often paid close attention to domestic news and learned that, one scholar who was educated overseas, knows nothing about our ancestor's heritage, but he claimed to know everything. It is like what one of internet users posted, "a theoretical physicist, is an expert on everything other than theoretical physics". He approaches everything under influence of western culture. Even Chinese medicine becomes a false science in his point of view. He is so bold to condemn Chinese medicine, even he doesn't know what it really is indeed, and he took Chinese herb and was cured by it when he was young. This kind of wisdom-only pitfall is very common and widespread. Those phenomenon is fortunately coming to an end. They can not make loud notes any more and they ought to finish.

    47. We are welcoming an age, in which we will correct wisdom-only type of mistakes, and fully utilize both left and right brain. Einstein's thought of graph and text has laid a foundation for our thought in several decades ago. But, until nowadays, western scientists failed to discover thought model in our Eastern foundational culture and they don't know the spirit of recitation in Chinese culture.(They) removed Einstein's brain from his skull and studied it for so many years. However they only concluded Einstein's brain is slightly heavier than average people's and left other questions unanswered. (Western scientists) have not even noticed the conclusion of "heart is the home for God and brain is the office for God", which was disclosed in "Huan Di Nei Jing". So they have a long way to go to uncover the secrete of human's intelligence. But those answers could be found in our own culture to build a thought pattern of "interpreting Dao with innate intelligence, interpreting Confucianism with innate intelligence, and interpreting western culture with Chinese culture". In that way, we could be on the summit of intelligence to interpret global culture and build our own "internal civilization" and "external civilization".

    48. When I was lecturing in western states and southeast Asia, I met lots of people. They are proud of their own culture and regard it as the best. But after comparing cultures, they heartfeltly admit that Laozi's philosophy is the greatest in the world. In a discussion held by several UNESCO groups, one scholar expressed his view: Confucius's thought is on the same level as Christian "Holly Bible". Only Laozi's thought entitles human being's temple of intelligence. Laozi's "Five Thousand Words" is an invitation for spiritual engagement. As long as you recite it, Laozi would offer you intelligence and wisdom. This is a point of view from an international scholar. Last time, I brought a German lady to participate in a Daoist International Forum. She spent over 10 years in making pinyin letters with copper wire to spell out each word in "Five Thousand Words". Through this spelling process, she activated her thought of graph and text, and intelligence. She felt the joy and pleasure of "living with Laozi, accord with Laozi".

    49. With those being said, we need to summarize those phenomenon in the world and come up with a way to develop the thought of "internal civilization" for understanding all matter. This kind of development should stick to the essence of Chinese culture practice, not just generally study our literature. (We) ought to master the essence, establish a great wish and aspiration, and practice the "De Dao" as the way Laozi pointed out, which is to understand Dao through practicing De, build up Dao De outlook on life, and develop "internal civilization" by making full use of reciting classics. Once this "internal civilization" is established, our education would be much easier, folks' intelligence and creativity would increase in folds and the creativity of Chinese could recover to what it was in 15th century.

    50. Why Daoist classics are ones for recitation, are textbooks? You could find the answer right after you compare 54th passage in Boshu version of "De Dao Jing" to first passage in general version.

    51 In Han dynasty, in order to make the theory and method of Tao marginalized. Emperor Hanwu and Fen Tian led a large number of people to modify sutra including Dedao Jing. They changed it into a theoretical and philosophic theory and not a textbook which should be read aloud. However, the Lao Zi in silk version is for us to recite. For example, there are sixty four words in this chapter, but the widely accepted version deleted nine words including eight Ye which is the key word and can activate a Fu and a Wen in our internal kidney energy. Of course, it is a word now, but if you read it and see it in your body, your kidney energy will be activated.

Only if we could recovery our Dragon Culture and build internal culture we will get long term develop in our national industry within the current complex world background.
    And we will change the mental outlook of our country, our family, our people, our employee to better condition. So we must understand deeper the meaning of reading classic and master the theory elements and control the right direction.

        In the Han Dynasty, in order to Taoism teaching theory and methods marginalization, demonization. Han WuDi and Tian fen, organized a large number of manpower to editing classic.Including Laozi also been rewritten, it would be the nature of reading textbooks all made changes it had been changed only a theoretical and philosophical articles. Silk version of "Laozi" is read to supply us. For example, a total of 64 words in this chapter, but softcover deleted the nine characters on. Among them,the deletion of eight "also" word. But this "also" is the key word, It is a "text."which start our inner kidney energy. Of course, it is the word, but as long as reading it, in view of it, then the body of the kidney will be mobilized. I have lectured at the university when, to cite an example, Human kidney is the congenital base, Human intelligence, but also rely on the word "also" behind the inner energy to support our thinking brain. Reading as a child, have this in common: When he did not fall in love before, middle and high school academic performance is very stable;But once falled in love, scoring quickly slip down. Many people do not know the physiological reason, teachers are somehow. Why do this child of the to be the top five, fall into the dozens? Why? That is because the word "also" behind the kidney energy, no longer follow the spinal cord to reach the brain, and the energy from the kidney area  are placed down, acquired through the sink and turned it into the material, or into the outflow of blood, or the release of fluid into semen. a lot of energy are Consumed, so wisdom would also decline. Therefore, even the ancient characters have deep meaning, Not the interpretation of Confucianism and our modern, "zhi,hu,zhe,ye" tone of the particle is just wrong! They just is the symbol and graphics which  wake up the internal energy. So defined, that is the real master of our culture. The characteristics of Chinese culture, many was not be explained by Confucianism, but can be explained through Taoist. When I lecture in Hunan, i gave a proposition, in Chinese culture and world culture, there is a peculiar feature. We are asking, but few scholars to explain, though I can explain, but not all interpret, explain only part. did you read "Raise the Red Lantern" ? That movie may be banned in China , in foreign countries is public, and After reading it, many foreigners felt strange, why did China's wealthy, many landlords, the rich man  marry three wives and four concubines? Why is not the West  marry more? Further extension of what, the Chinese emperors were six hospital Sannomiya, 72 concubines, and why did not the West emperor have? Why would such a cultural phenomenon appear ? do we think about it yet? Taoism can be explained only.Confucianism is wrong inherited custom before the Axial Age. In the Axial Age we should completely get rid of this habit.People have lost "respect Dao and moral" mechanism, these life system has not "protect health", but "harm health," Emperor of China, were very poor, short-lived, they give up their own lives by it. Their hearts, their inherent moral quality, did not reach "within a civilization" ;did not have to bear six homes Sannomiya, 72 Princess of this architecture to increase the spiritual of life energy. Even more ridiculous is that private citizens like to follow blindly. It is dug bone blades, and lean poison. because the people is among the smart error and do not know the key points. This is caused by cultural differences, which also manifested in the cultural interpretation of the above.

    Of course, we should also recognize the context in the view of history, so that we can judge and grasp the effect of Chinese Taoism that has a role in human life "inner-civilization ". The trigram paintings of Fu Hsi are the external records of “inner-civilization”. According to the ‘I Ching’and Huang-Lao thought and act on them, we can achieve our personal“inner-civilization”.Once this  “inner-civilization”happens, both the phenomenon of our life and the changes of body, will enter into a more obvious status.

    62.Why we say that “inner-civilization” is very important?
    Because many examples in history have proved this point. Tang Dynasty scientificly constructed “Chang'an”city-the capital of the nation by external use of “inner-civilization”.In the process of city construction, the architects imitated the front, middle and core layer of brain for external use. The outside river of the city was built imitating the cerebrospinal fluid of human body. The famouse event “Incident at Xuanwu Gate” in Tang Dynasty was just happened in this area and it curbed the throat neck area of Chang'an city. Chang'an city is the imitating result of “inner-civilization”,and these theories and methods were also applied to the blue print of social governance and city constrction.and the city pattern was finally formed as surrounded by eight rivers.

    14 Our modern society begins slowly come out of the darkness and approach the dawn. It is a common phenomenon that a lot of people are consciously pursuing the footsteps of their ancestors to study their classics and want to understand them. Many a little makes a mickle. Through more than 10 years research and practice on the recitation of Confucian classics, we can see this process has completed. With the end of acquired wisdom age and the approach of innate intelligence age, the age of simultaneously usage of acquired wisdom and innate intelligence is coming. Therefore, it is a natural phenomenon that people get closer to their classics, which were written by wisdom sages about 2500 years ago. When teach many children to recite classics, we find that, though we do not explain the meaning of the classic for them, they can understand the classics better than our adults, and sometimes, their understanding takes our adults’ breath away. Why these children have this ability? Because they have activated the function of their right bodies by classics recitation, and the frequency of these activated functions is much faster and wilder than that of our adults.

    15 In the ancient scriptures, there was already a correct classification of humans according to their spiritual quality. Human was classified into five categories: ordinary people, sage, saint, perfect person and real person (the highest level). We always emphasize that learning to become a real person and teaching one to become a real person. What is a real person like? He/She should be of prime morality, prime wisdom and intelligence, unity with nature and unselfish. In resent 2,000 years, Taoism has been demonized and marginalized and was considered to have the characteristic of selfishness. Of course, we couldn’t rule out of the phenomenon that some people become more selfish after learning and practicing Taoism. But at least, according to the original requirement of Taoism, a real person must service the public, service all people and service all living creatures, rather than being selfish.

    16 Thus, we’d better master in advance the characteristics of people in different Xiushen stages. If one learns from ancestors and wants to live and communicate with them, he must discard his smallself and devote himself to public interests. If he can not do this, it is no way to initiate his right brain thinking, no way to link innate intelligence and acquired wisdom, no way to get in the state of prime intelligence and wisdom. As a result, he will fall into narrow consciousness of ego and destined suffer from miserable in his whole life. So, as to how to achieve one’s own true spiritual civilization, he must know how to make his thought and behavior come up to the requirements for a qualified person at different Xiushen stages and understand his purpose of learning, master and application of traditional culture. I think the purpose is that he should transform himself to a sage from an ordinary person, who do not know heaven and nature and himself .Then he should devote himself to his nation and country and become a broad-minded person; further improve himself to be a saint, serve the public and country, make his due contribution to social progress and development. After this great work has been done, he will retire from public life and become a perfect person. At last, he will become a real person. These types of people are defined in Huangdi Neijing and I am here not ready to repeat them. If you refer to it, you can understand them.

    17 If we want to achieve spiritual civilization and Daode civilization, firstly, we must know the basic conception of civilization. Here I will mention it simply. Civilization, actually, is the total wealth of spiritual and productive force and it is a philosophical conception. In other words, with the introduction of western modern philosophy theory to China, we have accepted this conception. On the premise of philosophical definition for civilization, we can subdivision it and easily find that there are two types of civilization: external civilization of intelligence and internal civilization of Huixing. Internal civilization of intelligence is created mainly by our life brain. Because of the fully westernization of education, all we now know is just western intelligent civilization. But I believe that all of you here, except western couture researchers, don’t know who the pioneer of western intelligent civilization is. Do you know? Who is the pioneer of western intelligent civilization? The pioneer of western intelligent civilization is just represented by Aristotle. Who is the pioneer of Chinese intelligent civilization? Confucius! Both of them were born in the late of Axial Age.

    18 In the early and middle Axial Age, there are Buddha in India and Laozi in China in eastern countries, while there also are philosophers and prophet in the western. These persons had great wisdom and had created the civilization with the characteristics of great intelligence and wisdom, fully utilization of left and right brain and the dominant state of internal civilization. But in the early of resent 2500 years, intelligent civilization appeared suddenly. The characteristic of intelligent civilizations is "abstracting civilization from near body and far objects", but the characteristic of Huixing civilization is "abstracting civilization from internal body and in vitro objects". Thus, Taoism Huixing civilization is not only the mother of intelligent civilization, but also the potential motive force to develope intelligent civilization. This is what Laozi said, “The Tao which originated all under the sky is to be considered as the mother of them all. When the mother is found, we know what her children should be. When one knows that he is his mother‘s child, and proceeds to guard (the qualities of) the mother that belong to him, to the end of his life he will be free from all peril.”

    19 Through analyzing the characteristics of these two civilizations, it is easy for us to grasp the core of spiritual civilization. The spiritual civilization has very deep meanings and it is only through studying history, that we will be capable of finding some cultural characteristics of Chinese civilization, such as its concept, definition, meaning, connotation, and the way to achieve it. To achieve civilization, it is first necessary to have a clear understanding of the origination and evolution of texture, which was a source of our culture. Symbol, yin and yang yao, is the mother of texture and the grandfather of Chinese character. Because we have been studying character instead of texture in resent 2500 years, especially from Qin and Han dynasty, we now also always study the characters rather than texture. Therefore, looking back to the past 2500 years, the true civilization has rarely been realized and the whole history was filled with killing, war, fight against each other, killing each other.

    20 The true civilization awaked and was realized only in the Han Dynasty and Tang Dynasty. Why did it awake? It was the resurrection of Taoist Laozi's thought at that time that brought the civilization to its pinnacle. While at other dynasties, the culture study did not concentrate on texture, but rather on characters, which just lead to a short social stability and was immediately followed by chaos and war. So, when study culture, we should understand characters, and most importantly, we should concentrate on texture. If we follow this study way, it is easy to make our mind achieve a wisdom state. In this state, we can clear understand the history and the right cognitive path. At last, the true civilization of innate intelligence will be realized.

    21 Because the social moral has slipped to the bottom line and even the honesty and faith also have collapsed, we must avoid simple preaching in moral education, especially in the current era. If just with preaching, there is no way to lift up people's moral values, much less ethical behavior. So, we must learn from our ancestors and soak up wisdom from our fundamental culture. Reciting classics with visualization is a smart way to soak up wisdom. To build the most real and most basic civilization in our body is a shortcut way. In fact, that is just the simple principle what Laozi said, " What I said is very easy to understand and practice, but in fact, people do not understand and unable to practice them".

    58 When in Hunan province, I talk to a president of a Party School. I told him that it become very easy to prevent corruption, when "five thousand words" is applied as a measurement for evaluating, promoting and rating any officials, and as a result, no more than one year, the bad phenomenon that officials exorbitantly eat and drink at public expense will disappear. He asked why and I told him, by Laozi recitation, their body’s function of digesting vegetables only will be activated, and they may suffer from diarrhea when they eat meat. Then, they will not dare eat and drink exorbitantly again, won’t they? If drink exorbitantly, they may have a severely headache at once. If they know this is bound to take place, do they dare to drink exorbitantly again? Consequently, the corruption will be stopped insensibly and their insatiable and irritable hearts will be cured simultaneously. When the president asked me how to enhance their qualities, I told him that we just went back to the Chinese history, especially the history of the Tang Dynasty, and it would become clear. At that time, both officials and students recited classics, and as a result, their mental outlook changed better soon. We also find that so many great poets appeared in the Tang Dynasty and many of their poems are still popular at nowadays, and till now, no poets have the abilities to achieve the same level of them in poetic imagery. In fact, their abilities just were given by Laozi’s thought, and there were Laozi’s contributions behind their great achievement, and just our modern people do not aware of this.

    59 Fortunately, I have observed a phenomenon that, in modern times, with the defeat of Sun Yat-sen and consecutive Chiang Kai-shek of the KMT(Kuomintang), Chairman Mao led the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) had won the government, and through decades of hard research and unconventional rise and fall, our society is gradually approaching the Laozi’s thought. Thus, I do predict that it will become the mainstream culture of China once again within ten years, which is its third renaissance.
    From the view of economics, demographics and sociology, though the population is much less in the Han Dynasty than in the Tang and their productivities were much lower than now, miracles had been created in that time, especially that in the Tang Dynasty, which had shocked the whole world. Now, the whole of Laozi’s thought, including its philosophy and inter-civilization thought, will be reactivated once again, and personal inter-civilization, family harmony-civilization and social great-civilization will also be achieved. This driving force of productivity, the Laozi’s thought, will be the most powerful force in the world, and must be able to push the Chinese civilization to the peak of world civilization and lead the advance of the world civilization. Don’t you believe it? I have the confidence!

    60 In history, there was a very vivid example, Chairman Mao Zedong and Chiang Kai-shek. Chairman Mao used the doctrine of Laozi and the academic of Military, Legalism and Historian. However, Chiang Kai-shek used the Confucian and Christian thought which was brought from the United States. So, he was destined to be defeated. Why that happened? That was the peculiar phenomenon in Chinese culture. Early in the revolution, the students returned from Europe and the Bolshevik back from the Soviet Union formed a team to revolute, but they were not successful at all. Only Mao Zedong, "a Marxist from a containing mountain village", could lead to win. Why could he? The secret lies in the "from a containing mountain village", which means Mao Zedong had a profound foundation of Chinese fundamental culture, so only he was able to lead all western cultural and political thought with skill and ease in China. Of course, Chairman Mao Zedong was a hero in dealing with disorders, and just as said in Tuibeitu, "king will success in Qinzhou." After the liberation, he could not go deeper in Huang-Lao’s thought, and just studied on part areas of the Huang-Lao’s thought, such as the area of history, military and literary, especially in the history area. Therefore, he seemed a little less stamina in the later. "Tuibeitu" had a fair foresee for him that when he wanted to use "Internal Saint" to manipulate "External-Kingcraft", he would appear to be lack of reserve strength, and indeed he made a little mistake later. Of course, his contributions and mistakes should be judged accurately and we will not discuss them more here.

    当然,中国的文化历史比较奇特。在早期的时候,由于儒学取代了道学,而儒学在明代又将《易经》的诵读也取消了,这样就慢慢淡化了能够开启自己智慧同步运行的这样一个教学模式。再加上近代,五四运动以后,就干脆全盘学习西方了,但是也没有真正完整地学习西方。现在走到农村,心里有一种酸酸的感受,很多北方农村,在村子中央都立起了教堂,我不知道他们立起教堂干什么。如果说我们的根文化立起来了,我们的文化实际上远远超越西方的任何宗教文化,老子的五千言远远超越于世界任何宗教的台阶之上,任何宗教对老子五千言只有顶礼膜拜的份,但是由于我们放弃了,我们不能解读她,所以不知道她的价值。
    Of course the history of Chinese culture is rather unique. As in the early stage Taoism was replaced by Confucianism, and the chanting practice of Yi Jing was also canceled by Confucianism during the Ming Dynasty, the precious teaching pattern capable of synchronously initiating Zhi and Hui gradually fell away. In addition, after the May fourth movement, the Chinese culture started to be totally westernized, which however was not really thorough. Now when I go to the northern countryside, I feel sad at the sight of churches that stand in the center of villages. I don’t know why they build the churches. If our root culture stands firm, our culture actually exceeds any other religion in the world far and away. The five-thousand-word Laozi exceeds the steps of any other religion in the world far and away. Any other religion has no choice but to pay homage to her. But because we give up and cannot understand her, we do not know her value.

    但是,近百年、近几十年来,西方的科学家可是关注到老子五千言,都纷纷在研究我们中国的老子五千言,包括德国,德国是一个哲学家的摇篮。在上一次世界杯的时候,记者在采访贝肯鲍尔的时候,他就谈到了这个观点,他说:我的一生,是老子伴随着我成长的,虽然我是一个足球皇帝,但是老子的思想影响了我的一生,包括我的成功和我的激流勇退,都是遵照老子的话来做的。他随身的提包里面,就有一本德文本的《老子》。后来记者又突发奇想,想整个去了解一下,就进行了随机抽样调查,随机抽样调查的结果,连我也感到赞叹,为什么呢?每四个德国家庭,就有一本《老子》。我们中国多少个家庭有一本《老子》?虽然没有统计,但是可以预见到,一万个家庭里面能否有一本,我看还难得说。因为国内很多地方,在推广诵读《老子》的时候,人家把眼睛一横:你那是搞宗教,不行吧?他们连老子思想是超越任何宗教思想的这个概念都还没有,仍错误地把自己局限在宗教的框架内,而没有上升到老子文化是最高的一个文明、文化、人文、哲学方面的大学问来学习,是对人的智能开启,是道德知识建立、道德质量建立的一个最佳读物,他们没有看到这一点。

    However for recent hundreds or decades of years, Laozi’s five-thousand-word work has attracted much attention and research by the western scientists, including those in Germany, the cradle of philosophers. During the last World Cup Football Match, Franz Beckenbauer talked about it when he gave an interview to a journalist. He said, “It is Laozi who has accompanied me throughout my whole life. Although I am nicked “the football’s emperor”, Laozi’s thoughts have affected my whole life, including my success and withdrawal. In fact I just followed Laozi’s words.” In his bag, he kept with him a book of Laozi in Germany. After that, the journalist brought out an idea that he would find out the situation throughout the German by random samples. The result of the random samples was surprising, and even I cannot help gasping with surprise. Why? From every four German families, there is one copy of Laozi. In our China, from how many families is there one copy of Laozi? Although we did not get the statistical data, we can foresee that there is hardly one copy out of ten thousand families. Because in many places of China, if you ask people to read Laozi, they may stare at you and say, “Are you advertising your religion?” They even don’t understand that the thoughts of Laozi exceed any of the religions. They bound themselves in the framework of religions instead of regarding the Laozi culture as a great learning related to the civilization, culture, humanity and philosophy, or the best reading material that could help to open up the human wisdom, to build up the Daode knowledge and quality. They cannot see it.

    所以,我们的差距还是很大的,但是随着时代需求的逐步加深,通过儒家的吟诵、佛家的念诵近十几年在全国的推广,大家对念诵有了初步的认识,那么下一步出现道家的观诵,也就一定会成为一种历史趋势。所以,我希望大家,在座的各位,都是道德根文化的实践者居多,文化爱好者居多,掌握《易经》也好,掌握医学的《黄帝内经》也好,掌握老子的五千言也好,道家文化掌握的最容易、最善巧方便的最佳方法和最佳途径,就是道家的观诵。把这个观诵一旦利用好、掌握好,其它的方法都可以被它带动起来,超越这一方法,快速开慧益智,同时也能够健康我们的心身。
    So we still have a long way to go. However as the demand of the time is gradually deepened, along with the popularity of Confucian’s chanting and Buddhism’s recitation during the past decade, people learn a bit about recitation. So probably next step the Taoism’s visional recitation will be a historical trend. Therefore, I hope everybody here, either practitioners or lover of the Daode root culture, learn that the Taoism’s visional recitation is the best and easiest way to master the Daode culture, including Yi Jing, Huangdi Neijing and the five-thousand-word of Laozi. Once we master and make good use of the visional recitation, the other methods can be also brought along, and then we will exceed this method itself, open up Hui and benefit Zhi rapidly and make our heart and body healthier.

    为什么会出现这种现象,我的这些观点是否有依据?那么我们可以来看一看《易经》这本最原始、最祖本、也是人类最古老的一本经典,看看《易经》里面是怎么说的。我前面已经讲了内观诵读,内观观什么呢?内观,要从内观汉字到内观文,逐步深化,诚心敬意,发现其中的文出现。早期,由于我们心烦意乱、浮躁,难以内观内视。很多人从娘胎出生以后,两个眼睛睁开哇哇开始哭以后,可能一生都没有返观内视过,这个现象非常普遍,但是要想达到真正的文明,还非得要返观内视不可。我们的眼睛,就是我们的太阳和月亮,左眼就是太阳,右眼就是月亮,而中间天目那个地方,有一颗星星。我们就要主动让它们照耀自己的体内,那么就能够生出光明来,在这个光明当中就可以见到文,并且清晰地观到字。我们的内观主要是观汉字的小篆和甲骨文,小篆文和甲骨文这两种文是最常见的,还有一些异构文,可能我们没有经历,但是它会出现。实际上,在修身的实践当中,当文显图像的时候,这个图像的真实性就是最自然、最真切的内文明产生。自古真人无限度,诵读经典见观文。可以这样总结:许许多多的大智慧者,都具有经典诵读而内观图文的经历。
    Why will this happen? And on what basis do I bring out these opinions? Let’s see how Yi Jing says, since it is the most original, most ancestral and most ancient classics. I have talked about the inner visional recitation previously. Inner vision, what do we vision? Inner vision, from visioning the character to visioning Wen, deepen it gradually earnestly and sincerely to wait for the appearance of Wen. In the early stage, usually we have many distracting thoughts and it is hard to carry out the inner vision. Many people have never vision inside of the body throughout the whole life ever since the first cry at birth and this is quite normal. But if we are trying to reach the real civilization, we cannot step over the inner vision. Our eyes are our sun and moon. The left eye is the sun and the right one the moon; while in the middle where the third eye lies, there is a star. If we initiatively let them light up the inner world of our bodies, the brightness will be produced, and in the brightness we can see the Wen and clearly vision the characters. The inner vision focuses on the Small seal script and Oracle bone script, which are most common. There are also some Yi Gou Wen (the same word with different writing); maybe we have not experienced it yet, but it will appear. Actually, during the practice, when the Wen appears its image, this fact is the most natural and actual generation of inner civilization. There are numerous sainted people from the very ancient time, and they all experienced the inner vision through classic recitation. Or we can sum up this way: many great people with great wisdom experienced the classics recitation and inner vision of the Wen.

    大家都知道著名的科学家爱因斯坦,可以说他创造了近代科技,他是个犹太人,从小也诵读经典。经典诵读给他带来什么好处?产生了什么现象呢?就是他的图文思维能力,我不知道你们研究过爱因斯坦的成长过程没有?他就曾经公开说过,而且好几次讲到:我的思维,就是把各种公式、符号,在大脑中改变成为图像,进行思维,而产生出它的智慧。所以,所有科学家没办法跟他比,因为他是主动而且又自觉地运用图像思维,来解决一切片面的智能左脑思维无法解决的问题。所以,他就成了科学的巨人,站在世界科学的巅峰上,使后来者无法顶替。他在二次世界大战期间,到美国的时候,一下轮船,就有美国科学家问他一个公式,说:您认为这个公式这样行不行?答案是什么样的?他把眼睛一眨巴:我不记公式。对方说:“您这样一个大师,为什么不背公式呢?”“那是书上有的,我为什么要花我的大脑去记它呢?”换句话说,就是他为什么要用这些东西来占据大脑有限的空间呢?他宝贵心智的空间、智慧的空间,是不允许这些东西来占有。
    We all know the famous scientist Einstein. We can say that he created the modern science and technology. He was a Jewish and he recited classics from his childhood. What benefit did the classics recitation bring to him? What did he get from it? It was his ability to think in the style of image and Wen. I don’t know if you have studied Einstein’s growing experience. He ever said several times in public that his thinking style was to transfer all kinds of formula, symbols into imagines and then work out the wisdom. Therefore all the other scientists cannot catch up with him because he initiatively and consciously made use of the image thinking style to solve all the problems that beyond the ability of the left-brain-only thinking style. So he became the giant of the science and stood at the top of the science of the world that cannot be exceeded by successors. During the second world war, when he went to America, at his arrival by ship, there was an American scientist who asked him a formula, and said, “What do you think of this formula? Does it right? What is the answer?” He blinked his eyes and answered, “I don’t keep formulas in my mind.” The scientist said, “How can you, such a great scientist, not keep formulas in your mind?” “Because those are what we can find in books. Why should I waste my brain to keep them?” In another word, he was asking, why should he occupy the limited space of his brain with such things? His precious space of mind and wisdom refused to be occupied by such things.
    爱因斯坦也有一个名言,论教育:教育就是要把在学校所学的东西忘干净,剩下的那部分,那才叫知识。说得很不客气,对我们现在的智能教育,填鸭式拼命往孩子们的大脑里面塞东西,那可是一个非常深刻的清醒剂。但是人的注意力,因为都被高考吸引住、牵绊住了,不知道这样做的害处。实际上,只有在当前的教育背景下,改革无法实现,我们自己要用自己祖先的办法,来作一些补救,去可怜一下这些孩子们,去帮助一下这些孩子们,当然同时也在帮助我们自己,那么就用这些内文明的方法,来达到这一个目的。
    Einstein had another famous remark about the education: Education is to forget all the things we have learned in schools, and what remains is called knowledge. It was a rather hard saying. However it is also a good head-clearing medicine for us since it is popular in our intelligential education nowadays that we force feed our children’s brains with so much stuff. But people are all so attracted by the college entrance examination that they don’t realize the harm it does to the children. In fact, the revolution cannot be realized in the background of the present educational system. So we have to make up for it using our ancestor’s method to help the children, of course to help ourselves as well, and we will get there by the way of inner civilization.

    66: Actually, the idea of Huang Lao, which is the method of internal observation and reading, existed for a long time during Ru Jia time. The Chinese creativity is most powerful in the world before Yi Sutra was abandoned. Only Yi sutra can keep Chinese’creativity until the late Ming dynasty. However, our creativity descended quickly during Qing dynasty. Why? Because after Ba Gu Wen appeared, people didn’t read Yi sutra any more. Yi sutra is the only one which can increase our wisdom in all the sutras of Ru Jia. However, when our education deleted it, it became pure intelligence education.

The aim of study is to be an official, the aim to be an official is to make money and earn reputation. This kind of education did not stand in the area of society and subject development, so it descended greatly.

Otherwise, we will still follow the western world for hundreds of years, if we don’t inherit the Gen culture of our ancestor and don’t nourish ourselves and offspring. Because they have hundreds of years of knowledge and experiences, we maybe be still treated as processing factory and we cann’t catch up them. On the contrary, based on their institution and inspiration, if they absorb and study Chinese method, and apply Chinese sutra, they will move forward quickly.

    带s_sjs学长发译稿:
    72.我前面已经讲了西方文化是“羊文化”,但是它也同时诞生了“狼文化”。所谓“羊文化”,就是他们的《圣经》文化;所谓“狼文化”就是他们的经济、战争、舰队文化,包括“鸦片战争”,八国联军进军北京,以及当年的远征军征服玛雅人,焚烧玛雅的典籍,屠杀玛雅的智者,等等现象,都是这个“羊文化”和“狼文化”的结晶。但是,中国文化可惜没有走上这样一条路,中国的文化当中有三种文化。哪三种文化呢?一种,就是以伏羲、黄帝、老子为代表的龙文化;一种,是以孔子和后代改良儒学创建的“羊文化”,以及汉代后期构建起来的“犬文化”。出于这样的状态,“羊文化”和“犬文化”不足以抵御西方的“狼文化”,所以我们在近百年当中无力还手。
    73.在我个人看来,唯独有中国的龙文化,才能将目前世界各经济强国重新构治的狼羊文化现象突破。周围都是这些狼羊文化在环视。一头被驯服的“犬”和一大批“羊”,根本无法应付众狼环视的国际商业环境。大家看一看,很多在国际上做生意的浙江商人的遭遇是什么?被人家打了一闷棍,人家有话语权,说这个是仿造的,就是仿造的;说这个要退回去,就要退回去,我们国内就沦为西方的加工厂,要仰人鼻息才能搞好经济发展。前一段时间,在经济一滑坡的时候,在广东就倒闭了大量的加工厂,损失是很惨重的,国家工会也拿出来一部分钱来解围。这样的话,我看很难平静和平稳。
    74.孔子也曾经说过:老子“犹龙也”。奔跑的野兽,可以在地上设陷阱把它捉住;水里游动的鱼儿,可以用一根丝线挂一个香饵把它钓起来;天上的飞鸟,可以用弓箭把它射下来,唯独老子“见首不见尾”,无法看清楚和“捕捉”他。
    75.我们在一个“狼文化”环视的世界商业环境当中,如何去生存而长立于不败之地呢?那就是不能被它们用陷阱逮住,不能被它们用绳索捆住,不能被它们用丝线钓住,也不能让它们用弓箭射下来,那么也只有老子的思想才具备这样一种能力。
    76.浙江作为经济发展的大省,作为与世界商业环境接轨的一个重要渠道,在这个省里面展开对老子思想的学习,实践“内文明”,提升我们的创造力,只要把我们的龙文化恢复起来,将“内文明”建立起来,我们就能在当前复杂的世界背景当中,使我们的民族工业得到长足的发展,使我们这个国家的精神面貌、家庭的精神面貌、个人的精神面貌、企业员工的精神面貌,都获得一种良好的改变。所以,我们对经典诵读的意义,一定要从深层次去看,把这些理论的元素、原理把握住,把正确的方向把握住。
    77.孔子曾经五次问道于老子,他们是师徒关系。我在这里,并没有任何批评儒学的意味,当然值得批评的是改良儒学,是宋明以后僵化的儒学,那的确是唯智能的,没有慧性的,那个是需要清理的。
    78.在当前社会,我们应该将原汁原味的儒学和老子思想结合起来,将我们的头脑当中的慧和智同步运用起来,让我们去共同走近老子和孔子,使我们的生命得到完整的升华。
    79.由于时间关系,就讲这么多,谢谢大家的聆听!

    72.I have been speaking in front of the Western culture is the "sheep culture",and then it is also the birth of the "wolf culture".The so-called "sheep culture", that is, their "Bible" culture.The so-called "wolf culture" is their economy, war, Fleet culture,including the "Opium War", eight-enter Beijing, and then the expedition to conquer the Maya, Maya's books burned, killing Maya's wise men, etc. They are the "sheep culture" and "wolf culture" of the crystal. However, Chinese culture did not embark on such a pity that a road.Chinese culture includes the three culture.The one is the "dragon culture" represented by  Fu Xi, the Yellow Emperor, Laozi ; the two is the "culture of sheep" which modified descendants of Confucius and Confucianism is to create , and the late is the "dog culture" which Han Dynasty built up. "Sheep culture" and "Dog Culture" did not resist the West's "wolf culture", so we were unable to fight back in the last hundred years.

    73.In my opinion,  the dragon culture with Chinese , can break through  the wolf in sheep cultural phenomenon governance which the current world economic power re-structure. Surrounded by sheep and culture in the surveying of these wolves. A tame "dog" and a large number of "sheep" and can not cope with all the wolves look around the international business environment. Many problems in the international business what happened in Zhejiang businessmen? Hit a staggering blow by others, people have the right to speak, saying that this is a fake, that is counterfeit; say that to return it, we must return to, our domestic processing plants become attachment to the west in order to promote economic development. one year ago, when the economy of a landslide in Guangdong, a large number of processing plants went bankrupt, the loss is very heavy, so that the national took out money to the rescue.

    74.Confucius once said:  "Laozi is still dragon." the running beast,which you can set traps on the ground to catch; water fish swimming,which you can use a thread to hang a bait to catch  up; birds of the air,which you can use bow and arrow to shoot, with the exception Laozi "see the first but not the tail", can not see and "capture" him.

    75.We are in a "wolf culture" ruling around the world business environment, how to survive long invincible it? That is, we can not be caught by the trap, we can not be tied with ropes, we can not be fishing with a silk thread to live, we can not be shoot with bows and arrows, only Laozi thoughts  has such a capability.

    76.As the economic development of Zhejiang province, as  an important channel connect with the world business environment,  in the province promotion of Laozi thoughts study, practice,  to enhance our creativity, as long as we recover the dragon culture , will be "the civilization" established, we can make great progress to our national industryin the background of today's complex world,  and the spirit of our country , the family spirit, personal spirit, the mental outlook of employees have access to a good change. Therefore,  we must look at a deeper level the meaning of the classical which we read, and rasp the elements of these theories, principles, and seize the right direction.

    77.Confucius is a student of Laozi, he had consulted Laozi to learn "Dao" for five times. I mean no criticism to the confucianism. However, the modified Confucianism, which was developed after Song and Ming Dynasty should be condemned. It only emphasizes acquired wisdom and abandoms innate intelligence. That definitely needs to be corrected.

    78.Nowadays, we should combine the original Confuciamism and Laozi's thoughts, apply both innate intelligence and acquired wisdom in our brains, and approach Confucius and Laozi to ultimately sublimate our life.

    79.Thanks for your attention.

    偶翻译的55-57:
    55.在两千五百年以前,大量的文章当中,使用的是四言文、五言文、六言文、七言文,而人们错误地理解这种格局只是韵律所限制,是一种规矩。这种行文方式是不是规矩呢?是规矩,也不是规矩,而是句式对应体内的需要。比如说七个字的诵读,一般百会、泥丸、喉区、中丹田、胃区、下丹田和会阴区,这是七言绝句所必须内观的部位。而《德道经》和《黄帝四经》里面,最常见的是四言。四言诵读,最强调要把握的区域,就是颅腔区、胸腔区、腹腔区、会阴区,要内观这四个“田”,去主动结合。而且,这个“也”字都要主动去落实在会阴区这里,包括“众眇之门”的“门”,如果把这个门打开,跟地气联通了,大量的地气进入体内,那么饭量就会减少,精神就会更饱满,就会进入一种长生久视之地,这就是道家内观诵读的奥秘。
    2500 years ago, in a large amount of literature, four-word phrase, five-word phrase, six-word phrase, seven-word phrase were widely used. People mistakenly think this is because of rythm restriction and a rule. Is this form of phrasing a kind of rule? It is and it is not as well. It is to correspond to inner body. For example, when we recite seven words, baihu, niwan, larynx, middle dantian, stomach, lower dantian and huiyin area are those must be observed internally. But in "De Dao Jing" and "Huang Di Si Jing", four-word recitation is most common, which stress to pay attention to endocranial cast, chest, abdominal and huiyin area. we ought to observe those four "tian" and proactively act. In addition, this word, "ye", should be settled in huiyin area. If we open up this door and get connected with qi of earth, large amount of qi of earth enter our body, and as a result, we would eat less but have more energy. In that way, we could achive long living benefit. This is the Daoist's secret of reciting with internal observance.

    56.把内在的精神文明建立起来,行为全部就都规范了。“内文明”,在两千五百年以前是普遍的现象。我们在研究历史的时候,都可以找到历史的踪迹,特别是是在《庄子》里面,记载了大量的这样的史实,只是他使用了文言文的记载,使用了当时社会的表述特征,我们只有进入到他的那个意境当中,才能够读懂。但是在两千五百年以后,也曾经有过这种文明大放异彩的时候,就是在汉唐两个时代。汉代曾经掀起了两个波潮,历史规律是非常容易重演的。汉之前的秦朝,是因为酷法而亡,这是个重要的特点,两世就亡掉了,就被替代。到了汉代,就迎来了“文景之治”和“光武中兴”。“文景之治”和“光武中兴”最大的特点,就是遵循黄老思想治国。大家看过《汉武帝》这部电视剧吧?汉武帝的祖奶奶,是窦太后。窦太后就坚持孙儿一定要读黄老,而汉武帝桀骜不驯,坚决不同意,明着、暗着跟窦太后对着干,就产生了一种叛逆心理,所以在汉武帝的时候,就出现了“罢黜百家,独尊儒术”的历史景观。但是,毕竟黄老思想和老子五千言给当时的经济发展和文明昌盛,带来了丰硕的成果,那个时候也是“监狱成空”,监狱里面没犯人,这就可以检验一个社会的无为而治和道德水准。仓库里面堆积的粮食,都变成了粉末,吃不完。钱库里面串钱的麻绳,也烂掉了,无法一吊一吊去清数,已经达到那个富足殷实的状态。
    When internal spiritual civilization is set up, conduct would be normalized. "internal civilization", is a popular phenomenon 2500 years ago. When we study history, their traces could be found, especially in "Zhuang Zi", which records lots of those facts. But those were recorded in ancient Chinese, the representative characteristics of that time. We can only understand it when we apprehend their artistic conception.
    2500 years later, there were also a couple of prime times for this civilization, which occur in Han and Tang dynasties. History always comes repetitively. Qin dynasty, the one before Han, came to an end even after two emperors,due to brutal laws. In Han dynasty, there comes "Wen Jing Zhi Zhi" and "Guang Wu Zhong Xing", both of which rule the nation by following Huang Di and Laozi. You guys watched TV show "Emperor Huan Wu", didn't you? Dou, the grandmother of emperor Han Wu, insists her children to study Daoist thought. But prince Han Wu is unruly and he did not agree with her grandmother. He always went against her and start rebellion. So when he gained power, as a result, there comes a time of "proscribing all non-Confucian schools of thoughts and espousing Confucianism as the orthodox state ideology" . However, the contribution of Daoist thoughts to the civilization and economy could not be denied and were seen everywhere. For example, there were no prisoners because of no crime, suggesting that the society was highly civilized and moralized. The economy was so prosperous that the barn was always filled with grains, and the country was so rich that the rope clustering the copper currency got rotten even before the money was used.


    57.在唐代,也出现了一次应用黄老思想和经典诵读,内观文明而达到社会精神文明鼎盛的时期。唐代时建立在什么基础之上?其实是汉代的历史重演,连形式都基本差不多,唐前面是隋朝,隋朝也是二世而亡。因为隋朝的第一任皇帝开始迷信佛法,在全国大肆兴建佛寺,把国家的资源都投到新建寺庙上去了,用国家的资金去供养大量的僧人,这样就埋下了一个引起社会动乱的祸胎,导致二世而亡,但这也为唐代重新启用老子五千言奠定了基础,所以带来了“贞观之治”和“开元盛世”。到现在,唐朝都成为世界各国所敬仰的一个历史时期。在“贞观之治”和“开元盛世”中,使用的什么方法呢?就是经典诵读,而且人手一本,当时皇帝亲自动手给“五千言”写批注,写注释,然后发布政令,全国读书人、当官的和庶民百姓,都要人手一本,统统诵读,而且还要考试,根据这个成绩,考虑人员的升迁留用。
    In Dang dynasty, there came another time of applying Huanglao thoughts, reciting classics, and internal observation culture, which made social spiritual culture reach sumit. What did Dang dynasty was founded upon? It is actually a repeat of history in Han dynasty and they even have the silimar form. The dynasty before Dang is Shui, which cease to exist after two generations. The founder of Shui dynasty obsessed with Buddhism. He built lots of temples, put state's resources into those and feeded lots of monks. This laid the root of trouble, which caused social upheaval and eventual collapse. However this laid foundation for revival of Laozi's Five Thousands Words in Tang dynasty and it brought "Zhenguan zhi zhi" and "Kaiyuan Sheng Shi". Recitating classics was attributed to that and everyone own a book of Laozi. The emperor in power himself annotated Laozi's five thousand words and then issued government decree to promote reciting for everyone and to measure official's performances with the score of exams of reciting classics.
