为什么孔子, 老子, 佛祖, 风水学都说水好?
老子《道德经》里的【第八章】”上善若水。水善利万物而不争，处众人之所恶来, 故几, 于道。居善地，心善渊，与善仁，言善信，正善治，事善能，动善时。夫唯不争，故无尤。”
老子又说夫唯不争，故无尤，水居于最低的地方，水与万物不争，所以他没有什么毛病。一个人只要不争就不会有毛病，有些人会认为这是很消极的想法，但是如果一个人只要把自己提升，知识提升，见识提升，那些需要你的人就会找上你了. 刘备三顾茅庐去请诸葛亮出山，因为刘备知道诸葛亮孔明是很能干的。这样就能够海纳百川, 所有的河都会流向大海。
所以老子说，水有七个德。1. 处在不以别人争强，大智若愚。2. 够宽，够阔，够深可以容纳百川。3. 水能生养万物，那是仁。4. 有诚信有规律的. 5. 水是公正公平的。6. 水是能调和万物的。7. 适合的时机应时而生。
老子又说人在活着的时候，筋骨是柔弱的，但是人死了，筋骨就会僵硬。植物也一样。水以柔可克刚, 太极学里的接力打力, 以柔可克刚, 英雄往往难过柔弱的美人, 这就是《道德经》里的【第七十六章】的意思; 人之生也柔弱，其死也坚强。万物草木之生也柔脆，其死也枯槁。故坚强者死之徒，柔弱者生之徒。是以兵强则不胜，木强则兵。强大处下，柔弱处上。
Why do Confucius, Laozi, Buddha, and Feng Shui all say that water is good?
老子《道德经》里的【第八章】”上善若水。水善利万物而不争，处众人之所恶来, 故几, 于道。居善地，心善渊，与善仁，言善信，正善治，事善能，动善时。夫唯不争，故无尤。”
[Chapter 8] in Lao Tzu's "Tao De Jing" "The goodness is like water. Water is good for all things without demanding, and it is stay at the lowest ground which is the evil place of everyone, its heart is good, and benevolent, speak good faith, righteous governance , it is capable and only move at the good times. It does not fight, so there is no weaknesses."
Lao Tzu said that the best is like water, and the best person is like water. Water benefits all things without fighting, water won't compete with all things, water won't say you are mine, if I give you what you need, you have to listen to water but water won't control you. Therefore, the highest state of human beings is to follow the law from water, so goodness is like water, water is good for all things without fighting, and water is good for all things.
People is able not to eat for three days, but they cannot live without water for three days. If they don’t drink water, they will die. If there is no a single drop of water for three days, they will die. In Chinese character of “live” and how we write “live” is three drops of water and a tongue which mean we can only live when the tongue get the water.
In Feng Shui, we say that Mountains govern the people and water governs the wealth “Shan Guanren Ding Shui Guancai”. If the mountain is fertile, there is the place with talented people and the people live there are healthy and smart. Water is in charge of finances, because we people live by water. The four earliest civilizations in the world, such as the Indus River civilization, and the Yellow River civilization, were all started next to the water. Important cities such as Singapore and New York are all beside the water.
The Buddha also said: "The good heart is like water." Water conserves all things. Water is highly permeable and nourishes creatures. Water relies on buoyancy to make boats and boats possible. The continuous flow of water improves the environment and fills the earth with vitality. Water can cool and water can Decontamination; water has countless effects, and its kindness is boundless.
From 800 BC to 200 BC, it is known as the first axis era in "History of World Civilization". During this period, a golden age of ideological emancipation appeared in both the eastern and western civilized regions, especially the climax from the 6th century BC to the 5th century BC. Hundreds of scholars like Confucius, Laozi, Zhuangzi, etc. appeared in China, and Shakyamuni, the founder of Buddhism, appeared in ancient India. In ancient Greece, thinkers such as Socrates and Plato appeared.
According to historical records, Confucius once asked Laozi for advice. In one of the meetings, Confucius asked Lao Tzu to teach him about water.
Lao Tzu said that water is staying at the lowest ground which people do not like to live in the lowest ground, people normally like to live in the higher land with fresher air and better scenery. People like to move up but water flows to lower places. Water puts itself in the lowest position. Water is only given. It is already closest to the way of heaven/sky can does. Sky or the atmosphere will provide air, water and Sun Light without asking anything in return. It is the same principle as Confucius's principle of "the wise love water". Why do wise people like water?
Water will change, and all changes in water are caused by the external environment. When water is heated, it will turn into steam. When a lot of water gathers together, it will turn into clouds. Why does the water have waves because the wind blows it. If you put water in this cup, the water will remain the same, because there is no external environment, the water does not change, the water is quiet, and quiet is its nature. Because if there is no external environment, the water is unchanged. Two Hydrogen and one Oxygen are unchanged. No matter if it becomes a waterfall or ice, or becomes water vapor, the two Hydrogen and one Oxygen molecular structure will not change. Whether it is a waterfall, water or ice, it has the same principle of nourishing everything, and people have to change with the external environment. People are most afraid of constantly changing with the external environment, but we often become until the end we don’t know ourselves and forget our original intentions. If the water is still, the debris in the water will settle. 70% of our human body is water, so humans also have the nature of water. As long as people calm down, distracting thoughts will settle slowly. Our hearts should not always be in pursuit of external matter. Therefore, a wise person must learn water.
Let’s go back to the [Chapter 8] "Ju Shan Di" in Lao Tzu's "Tao De Jing" means that a person should put himself in the lowest position, like water, but all rivers will flow to the sea. Water doesn’t change its goal, its goal is flowing to sea but when it hits something hard like a mountain, it turns and flows around it without fighting with the hard thing (mountain) but still reach its final destination i.e. the sea.
Xinshanyuan means deepness. The water must be deep enough to be able to fish and shrimp live in it.
With kindness, water helps all things grow. Plants will wither without water, and so will animals.
Water Words are faithful and reliable, and people's words must be honest, like the sea. The sea has a fixed time tide every day. There are regular tides at a fixed time in the morning and evening.
And the water is fair and the horizontal line is very flat. When there is no wind, the water is very flat. It is fair. That is what Lao Tzu said about good governance. Lao Tzu is reminding national leaders to be fair and put people first. Dealing with people and things must be fair, like water.
Water is capable. If the sugar melts in the water, the sugar is gone, but the whole glass of water will become very sweet. Salt is the same. That is the ability of water, it can reconcile everything. No matter how strong a knife is, it cannot cut water. But if the water stands up, it can pass through the iceberg. Therefore, water can carry a boat and can overturn it too when it is strong water.
Moreover, water changes from time to time, and it follows the winds. If the wind stops, the waves will stop. It changes along with the external environment. That is what Lao Tzu said is water moves at a good time. When the winds blow, it moves. But when winds stop, it will be still. Hence, we speak when we should speak, and we listen when we should listen.
Lao Tzu also said that water does not fight with others, so there is nothing wrong. Water is in the lowest place and water does not fight with everything, so there is nothing wrong with it. As long as one does not argue, there will be no problems. Some people think that this is a very negative thought, but if one only needs to improve oneself, you’re your knowledge and improve yourself to be someone who very capable, those who need you will come to you. Liu Beisan Gu Maolu Go ask Zhuge Liang to come out of the mountain, because Liu Bei knows that Zhuge Liang (Kong Ming) is very capable. In this way, all rivers will flow to the sea.
So Lao Tzu said that water has seven virtues. 1. Being in a position not to compete with others, be wise and look foolish. 2. Wide enough and deep enough to accommodate hundreds of rivers. 3. Water can produce all things, which is benevolence. 4. There is integrity and regularity. 5. Water is just and fair. 6. Water can reconcile everything. 7. Act at the right time.
According to the Analects, Confucius's student Zi Gong often saw that whenever Confucius saw large rivers, he would look at the rivers for a long time. Zi Gong asked Confucius why his teacher had been watching the water. Confucius said to Zigong that water merits are infinite, and we have to learn from the water and wise men who love water.
Lao Tzu also said that when a person is alive, the muscles and bones are soft, but when a person dies, the muscles and bones will be stiff. The same goes for plants. Water uses softness to overcome strength, the relay in Taijiology, uses softness to overcome strength, heroes often lose to the weak beauties. This is the meaning of [Chapter 76] in the "Tao De Jing"; human life is also Weak and strong in death. The life of all things is soft and fragile, and their death is also withered. So the strong are those who die, and the weak are those who live. If you are strong, you cannot win, and if you are strong, you cannot win. The strong place goes down, the weak place goes up.

2500年前老子不需要我们现在的高科技已经知道这宇宙是怎么形成. 2500 years ago, Lao Tzu didn't need our current high technology to know how the universe was formed.
老子在《道德经》里说道生一，一生二，二生三，三生万物。这里的道指的就是原子核， 这里的数字123并不是指的是表面的数字，而是指的是层次，也是易经里说的，无极生太极，太极生两仪，两仪生四象，四象生八卦。八卦生六十四卦，然后无穷无尽 ，周而复始。
第一组是天(乾卦)和地(坤卦)，天为阳而地为阴。伏羲” 一” 划开天, 划分天地阴阳, 因此伏羲被称为” 中华文化人文始祖”. 天一直在动，地是没有动， 大地没有动我们才能生存，同样的动为阳而静为阴。
地球上有天有地。但月球上只有地没有天，因为月球上的地心引力不够大来捉住大气层所以不能形成天，因此月球上没有生物。天(大气层)给了我们什么? 天给了我们万物都需要的水和空气, 因此我们才可以生存. 万物不能一刻没有水和空气. 大地的土地生长万物。天为父而地为母。天地就是我们的父母亲。大地是包容的，就像母亲包容孩子。地(坤卦) 象曰: 地势坤. 君子以厚德载物. 厚德载物就是无限的包容. 大地只给不拿, 天也只给不拿。因此孔子说’仁者乐山, 智者乐水’’ 因为有仁爱的人都会学习大地的付出。天是虚的, 而地是实的。这就是阴阳。以后我将以老子《道德经》里的【第八章】”上善若水。水善利万物而不争，处众人之所恶来”解释为什么孔子说’智者乐水’.
When the sun comes out, we move (movement is yang)
第二组是日月或者是火水(离卦和坎卦)。如果没有太阳，植物不能做光合作用，那草食动物也没有食物， 肉食动物自然也不能够生存。植物没有水也不能生长。每一个组合的阴阳都要互相调和。如果太热，我们不能生存。如果太冷，万物也不能生存。太阳出来的时候，我们活动(动为阳), 而月亮出来的时候我们休息(静为阴)。
蛋的中心都是蛋黄, 那是阳. 它被蛋白抱住, 那是阴.
老子又说冲气以为和。这里的冲是虚的意思，是看不到. 和为调和。因此太阳系中间是虚空的，是九大行星的轨道，轨道我们是看不到的，是虚的, 但是它是存在的。原子核里的电子的轨道也是同样的道理。
The DNA gene shape is also rotating, like two twists rotating.
“玄之又玄” 这里的玄也是指炫转的炫，头晕目眩的眩是一个目加个玄，两个玄加在一起就是滋生的滋。万物都是旋转滋生出来的。DNA 基因形状也是旋转，像两个麻花在旋转。我们的手指纹, 也是旋转。植物也一样，树有年轮，年轮是旋转的，我们1万个毛发有毛囊，但这个头顶有个旋，这个旋就是旋转出来。太阳系和原子核里边的旋转也是一样。
2500 years ago, Lao Tzu didn't need our current high technology to know how the universe was formed.
In the year of the ox in 2021, I think of Laozi riding a green ox and going out of Hangu, without knowing where he went to. Why the ox that he ride is a green ox? The meaning of green is germination, the beginning of the growth and change of all live things. The banana grows into green at first, and then slowly turns to yellow. In the Bagua, the hexagram艮 Gen represents the mountain, and the mountain does not move. Adding a bit to Gen is a good conscience 良心的良. The conscience remains unchanged, which is the original intention. Therefore, at the beginning of the human nature, the child’s heart is the purest and kind, just like a bean is green. The mother is the kindest woman. 娘就是最善良的女人。
Lao Tzu "Tao De Jing" [Chapter 42] Dao produces one, one produces two, two produces three, and three produces all things. Everything bears yin and embraces yang, virtual into harmony.
Lao Tzu said in the Tao Te Ching that one is born, two is born, three is born, and all things are born after the three. The Dao here refers to the nucleus. The number 123 here does not refer to the number on the surface, but refers to the level. It is also said in the Book of Changes, Wu Ji produces Tai Chi, Tai Chi produces two yi (Yin Yang), Yin Yang and produces four seasons. The four seasons produce bagua (eight hexagrams). Sixty-four hexagrams are born in the eight hexagrams, and then endless, repeating the cycle.
The Eight Diagrams of the Book of Changes are composed of eight phenomena. Because 6,000 years ago, Fu Xi discovered that the world must have these eight natural phenomena to produce everything, to nurture everything, and to grow. They are composed of four groups of Yin and Yang.
The first group is Tian Sky (Qian Gua) and Earth (Kun Gua). The sky is Yang and the earth is Yin. The "one stroke" of Fuxi started to the Book of Change and the "one stroke" means the sky and divides the sky and the earth into yin and yang. Therefore, Fuxi is called "the ancestor of Chinese culture and humanity". .
There are sky and land on the earth. Sky here referring to the atmosphere. There is only the earth but no sky on the moon. Because the gravity on the moon is not strong enough to catch and contain the atmosphere, thus, the sky cannot be formed in moon. Therefore, there are no living things on the moon. What does the sky give us? The sky gives us the water and air that all things need, so we can survive. All living things cannot live without water and air for a moment. The land of the earth grows all things. Sky is the father and the earth is the mother. Sky and earth are our parents. The earth is tolerant, just like a mother tolerates children. The earth (Kun hexagram) says: The gentleman carries things with virtue. The virtue carries things with infinite tolerance. The earth only gives and not taking, so is the sky. Therefore, Confucius said, "The benevolent is happy with the mountains, and the wise man is happy with the water", because people with benevolence will learn from the earth's contribution. The sky looks look empty, while the earth is real solid that we have. This is yin and yang. In future, I will use Laozi’s "Tao De Jing" [Chapter 8] "Goodness is like water. Water benefits all things without fighting, but stay at the lowest ground which is everyone's evil" to explain why Confucius said, "The wise man enjoys water".
The Qian Gua representing the sky is formed by three straight lines. The Kun Gua representing the land is composed of three broken lines. This is because the sky cannot be separated, but the earth can be separated. The Earth includes North America, South America, Asia, Australia, Europe, Africa, etc. The earth has oceans, land, mountains, and rivers. But there is only one sky that cannot be separated.
The second group is Sun Moon or Fire Water (Li Gua and Kan Gua). If there is no sun, plants cannot do photosynthesis, then herbivores have no food, and carnivores cannot survive naturally as well. Plants cannot grow without water. The yin and yang of each combination must be reconciled with each other. If it is too hot, we cannot survive. If it is too cold, everything cannot survive. When the sun comes out, we move (movement is yang), and when the moon comes out we rest (quietness is yin).
The third group is Feng wind (Xun Gua) and Lei thunder (Zhen Gua). This is a natural phenomenon formed by friction between water and air.
The fourth group is the protruding mountain (Gen Gua) and the sunken lake (Dui Gua), all things can grow in these two places. Tigers, sheep and cattle, some movable animals live in the mountains, while fish and shrimps live in the water.
Lao Tzu's "Tao De Jing" also said that "all things regain yin and embrace yang", which refers to the cycle of all things holding yang inside and yin outside. 2500 years ago, Lao Tzu didn't need our current high technology to know how the universe was formed. The proton with positive energy of the nucleus atom is in the middle, and the electron with negative energy is holding and moving around the proton on the outside.
The solar system is the same, the sun of yang energy is in the middle, and the nine planets of yin energy are holding the sun and rotating around the sun.
The same is true for the earth. The inside of the earth is extremely hot, and heat is yang. It's colder on the Earth surface.
The moon also revolves around the earth.
The same is true for the human body. Our heart is beating continuously non-stopped in it, which is Yang. The limbs outside of our body cannot be constantly moving like the heart.
The center of the egg is the yolk, which is yang. It is hugged by the egg white, which is yin.
Lao Tzu said again that Chong qi and achieve harmony. Chong here means imaginary, it is invisible. Harmony is harmony. Therefore, the middle of the solar system is empty, the orbits of the nine planets. The orbits are invisible to us. They are empty, but they exist. The same goes for the orbits of electrons in the nucleus.
老子 《道德经》【第一章】道可道，非常道；名可名，非常名。无名天地之始，有名万物之母。故常无欲，以观其妙；常有欲，以观其徼。此两者同出而异名，同谓之玄，玄之又玄，众妙之门. Lao Tzu "Tao De Jing" [Chapter 1] If Tao can be expressed easily, this is not a good Tao; if a name can be named easily, and it is not a good name. The beginning of the nameless world is the mother of all things. Therefore, there is often no desire, to observe the beauty; often there is desire, to observe the miracle. The two come out of the same name but have different names, the same is called the mysterious, the mysterious and the mysterious, the door of all wonders.
It means that if "Tao" can be expressed in words, then it is Good "Tao"; if "name" can be named in literary terms easily, then it is not a good "Name". "Nothing" can be used to express the state of the world before the universe and lives existed; and "being" is the name of the origin of the universe.
"It is the mystery, the door of all mysteries." It means that it is not the ordinary mystery and the profound, but the mystery, the profound and the far-reaching, and it is the master gate of the mystery of the universe, sky and earth.
"Xuan Zhi yu Xuan" The Xuan here also refers to the rotation too, two Xuan together is breeding nourishment. Everything is born out of rotation. The DNA gene shape is also rotating, like two twists rotating. Our fingerprints are also rotating. The same is true for plants. Trees have annual rings, which rotate. Our 10,000 hairs have hair follicles, but there is a spin on the top of our head. This spin is spinning. The rotation in the solar system and the nucleus is the same.
Therefore, 2500 years ago, Lao Tzu didn't need our current high-tech to know how this universe was formed.
