The Prophet Confucius lived around the time of the fifth century BCE in China and was one of the last enlightened individuals in the country of China. Confucius progressed to a higher level of consciousness and taught based on an enlightened perspective among the waring territories of China. The teachings of Confucius are exemplary.
Look at the means which a man employs, consider his motives, observe his pleasures. A man simply cannot conceal himself! —Confucius
People who imagine that their injurious and greedy behavior are hidden from the eyes of the enlightened sage are deluded. A person’s phoniness will always prove powerless toward the qualities of the light. The inner motivation of the heart will express itself within time; patience combined with a keen observation is required from the onlooker. The enlightened sages continually wrote, “choose your friends wisely”.
No matter how busy you may think you are, you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance. —Confucius
Confucius, clearly understood the value of reading quality subjects immersed within deep context—context that reveals the spirituality of life. Today, among the advancement of technology, television is brainwashing humanity into utter ignorance. A pitiful combination of laziness between the body and mind is occurring among the indulgent, wasteful, passive activity of television.
Additionally, the beverage industry of stimulants inhibit the level of relaxation that is required to read with explicit astuteness. Without self-assertive education, an ignorant mind of laziness will dominate the individual, which will cause a barrier for the ability to problem solve.
