Most of us can see the world is overrun with problems, and has been for some time.
Poverty, crime, sickness, unhappiness, cruelty, distress, economic strife... and the ongoing seemingly insane 'pandemic' crisis which has disrupted everyone's lives beyond our wildest expectations.
The list of human troubles and strife is long.
Many well-meaning people are working hard to make things better...
Activists, health professionals, lawyers, the average person on the street - we are all endeavouring to resolve these issues and make our own lives and the world a better place.
But there is one small problem which may actually be a big problem, because it could be the one missing piece preventing us making better and faster progress:
A fundamental understanding of the root cause of the problem, and how to change it at a fundamental level.
In my work as a root cause analysis coach I learned the hard way through many years of trial and...
"Only when I grew older did I realize that it was wrong to use violence to stop violence and that I did it to soothe the extreme pain I was feeling in myself".
The following is a very interesting discussion on harmony, conflict, and anger towards injustice, written by Yuan Tze, founder of the Ren Xue system of life cultivation:
"Harmony is a state of peace and balance, a state free of conflict. Harmony nurtures growth. When harmony is present, no harm is done.
I would like focus on one thing that often disrupts harmony – *anger*, in particular *anger in reaction to injustice*.
When facing injustice, is anger necessary for the change we wish to instigate? Many people believe that without anger, there will not be enough momentum to raise the awareness of the issue and drive the change. They believe that anger is, therefore, the necessary first step for change. Some people also believe that anger is necessary for self-protection when we are under attack. It turns fear into the...
"It is through the development of Jingshen (wisdom) civilization that we can get out of this mire: by recognizing the importance of our heart, and letting realization and wisdom guide our lives. A true civilization is a Jingshen civilization at the core, leading the material civilization. The material civilization serves the Jingshen civilization".
Recently at our annual Ren Xue training, Yuan Tze (founder of the Ren Xue system) shared on a topic which is undoubtedly one of the most pressing concerns of our time, if we are to not only make it through our current 'Covid' crisis, but beyond this to survive as a civilization:
The choice between humanity evolving as a 'material' vs 'wisdom' civilization.
"The pandemic is an opportunity for humans to slow down and look inwards, and discover what needs to be changed, individually and collectively, for us to move forward. We urgently need this opportunity".
Whilst many of the developments of humanity over...

"I am grateful to wake up feeling truly free within myself. I am not attached to my thoughts anymore and experience a deep connection with everything. Love and gratitude are qualities I feel during the whole day. There is space, true peace and calm"...
If the past few weeks are anything to go by, the angst and uncertainty in the air are causing a flurry of heightened emotions. From fear to anxiety, anger to despair, there are a lot of emotions at play. Whilst the country settles into lockdown mode, Ren Xue looks into the future with optimism.
Ren Xue is a system of life cultivation that incorporates a new form of Qigong, a moving meditation whose traditions go back thousands of years in China. A place with a renowned heritage and bestowed upon traditions, Qigong is a way of life for many in the Eastern world.
Yuan Tze – founder of Ren Xue – has created a new...
When someone goes through a mental breakdown (breakthrough to a new level of consciousness - which I have personally experienced) it is a very confusing, scary time, because all we know to be true is crumbling away, and we find ourselves hanging on the edge of the cliff of uncertainty and the unknown by our fingernails. Right now humanity is going through such a collective breakdown. And the problem is, many people have no idea how to navigate such a crisis. Yuan Tze knows how...
Back in 1996 I was diagnosed with CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome).
This wasn’t the first time I had been diagnosed with a chronic illness.
Several years before in 1988 I had been diagnosed with clinical depression.
Finding myself unexpectedly ill set me on my journey to find solutions to illness which didn’t involve having to take medication, which didn’t agree with me in terms of the side-effects I noticed, or my growing philosophy of ‘well if I’m ill, there must be a reason, and I’d like to find out what that is, and solve it from there, rather than cover it up with medication, or prop myself up with supplements’.
After working with counsellors after the depression diagnosis, I thought I was on my way to getting better, and whilst in some ways I was, in other ways I wasn’t, but I didn’t know it, because as I was to find out, illness - and the journey back to health - really is a journey of...
