The Firm, Enduring, Simple, Modest—Confucius

Enlightened individuals throughout history taught similar context except with a tailored style of teaching according to the culture of the era. Furthermore, each enlightened sage wrote with their own unique writing style.

The compositions comparing Moses, Confucius, and Paul are remarkable contrasting writing styles. The teaching of human nature and the distinctions between the light and the darkness are similar within the writings of individuals that attained a higher level of consciousness.

Confucus of China clearly understood that positive qualities are required to attain an amiable level of virtue. Also, the stories of mythology illuminate that qualities such as courage, integrity, and trustworthiness are attributes that are essential to gain Divine favor.

The firm, the enduring, the simple, and the modest are near to virtue. —Confucius

A simple quote that carries weight.

The Firm: contrasting the unstable, slothful person that maneuvers life in an indecisive manner; the firm individual is solid, decisive, and steadfast in their endeavors. This individual is unmovable in regards to spiritual truth.

The Enduring: This person will withstand, tolerate, and persevere among disagreeable situations, in contrast to a weak, intolerant person. To run a race a person must endure. Spiritually, to walk the narrow road, a person must endure difficulties.

The Simple: contrasting difficult and complicated, an elementary lifestyle creates a straightforward honest tongue. Complexity generates a tangled obscured heart motivation. Pursuing spiritual virtue necessitates time and space. Simplicity allows a lifestyle of time and space.

The Modest: contrasting a conceited and boastful person, humility correlates with acting modestly. The modest will pursue to self-efface; unpretentious actions will predominate the heart of motivation. Humility is the indispensable quality for a person to be granted with Divine favor.

Confucius taught qualities that generate a strong character of spirituality during the sixth century BCE. Throughout history, individuals living at a higher level of consciousness taught identical context regarding spirituality. Impartial scriptural reading is advantageous for the spiritual seeker, however, a positioned attachment—scripturally and religiously—will prove progressively detrimental.
