A Few Contemporary Inspirations from some of the ‘Selected Sayings’ (Analects) of Confucius By Traumear
Paperback: $7.12

These are inspirations based on those Analects, or ‘sayings’ of Confucius of which they bear the number. I have used the translations by Arthur Waley. I have chosen only a few of those... More > Analects that interested me from Books I to IV. There are XX books altogether, but sadly I soon ran out of inspiration - which does not imply that the rest are not worth reading. These pieces, as I present them here, are not translations or transcriptions but more or less what I would call transubstantiations. I do not mean: This is what the ancient Chinese sage or his disciples really said or meant but rather: This is how he might express his thought if he lived in the post modern or contemporary world, with access to what has become available in our time, not in terms of culture and civilization but of true knowledge, understanding and ethical spirit as I see it.

Whereas other cultures have seen divorce as a practical thing, simply ending an experiment that didn't work, we in the West, have attached a morally negative stigma to it such that we equate divorce with failure while I, as I say up ahead, think it's a good thing because it shows you weren't meant to be with each other and you're cutting your losses right now rather than going on in a mundane marriage. There is also some biological evidence that suggests that men are more suited for serial monogamy, several marriages over the course of a lifetime because it's more in keeping with their biological imperative, be fruitful and multiply with a variety of different women. The most common reasons for divorce are: Infidelity.< Less

The chapter tells of... More > a book or scroll in God's right hand that is sealed with seven seals. The Lamb of God, or Lion of Judah opens the first four of the seven seals, which summons four beings that ride out on white, red, black, and pale horses.
