Abstract: A better way to explain the wholeness from an oriental point of view is the major direction of our research, but in the end it seems to coincide with modern Western systems thinking such as Relational-theory and DSRP systems thinking, as well as physics and mathematics. The first step starts from the concentration on the parts as in Reductionistic thinking, to the concentration on wholeness as in Systems thinking. Both schools of thought are important in their corresponding applications. The second step involves the combination of the observer and decision maker into the system, similar to the five aggregates human mind system in the teaching of Buddha, and the Relational-Theory by John Kineman. But finally the structure of the environment also need to be included for the sack of wholeness, similar to Schema theory by Kent Palmer. Now all three are coming together and forming the much better wholeness. However, this is only the structure and properties of the wholeness, and there is also the diagnostic and regulative part from Traditional Chinese Medicine, which could be the application part of systems theory in real life problem solving. Together they are very promising in forming the wholeness of systems theory and systems practice.

The structures and functions of human body in Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on the oriental system thinking of Taichi Yin-Yang structures and functions. Researches show that similar structures and functions are found in modern Western systems theories which are composed of systems, observers and decision makers, and the environment. TCM employs different systemic models to diagnose the human body. However, all these models employ the common 3D structure of Superficial-Internal, Cold-Hot, and Deficient-Excess spectrums. This oriental systems thinking seems promising in combining with modern Western systems theory in the application of system diagnosis and re-balancing. It is hoped that the combination of the east-west systems thinking will finally help human understanding in solving the modern complex problems.

Chinese writing, English writing, Middle East writing emerging from different directions will in the end all occupy the whole paper to express the intended ideas, emotion, systems, instructions, and knowledge. Different systemic models arise together with their corresponding observers and decision makers. That is, people located with different geometrical properties, from Southern or Northern part of china. In addition, people with different properties because of the different state of their civilization, either at war or peace, lack of or over-supply of food, too much leisure or too much hard work. That is to say, the systemic model is also related to the environment, combined and emerged into the perspectives part, the water sub-system, of the whole system.

Traditional Chinese Medicine Engineering and Systems Thinking are still in the dark age… you too? No worries, look for the inner wisdom light that is shinning bright!

中醫藥工程學與整體觀系統論仍然處於黑暗時代中,你也感同身受嗎?
不用怕,尋找你心中的智慧之光吧。

Only in those dark lonely nights,
Can you see the light within you that is shining bright.
Keep on doing what you believe is right,
Only if that could bring to you and others peace, harmony and the wisdom light.

孤單夜裏雖寂靜,
卻能窺見心光獨耀。
為理想精進不懈吧!
只願能為眾生帶來平靜,和諧,智光。

三國演義    Three Kingdoms – A Historical Novel

天下大勢,分久必合,合久必分 。

The main trend under the haven is that
what has been long divided, must unite;
what has been long united, must divide.

“The empire, long divided, must unite; long united, must divide. Thus it has even been.”

易經:陰陽獨立統一,變化才是永恆。
I Ching:
Yin and Yang are opposite to each other but unite in one direction.
Change is the real permanent golden rule.

太極 Taichi:天地之間的萬事萬物。
All the objects and events between Heaven and Earth.

陰Yin:合 Unite, Unity…            陽Yang:分 Divide, Diversity…

Unity in Diversity  求同存異。博大精深。見微知著。對立統一。

Wishes of Chinese new year: 猴年新春
Healthcare successful! 養生成功
physically strong 修身健康
emotionally happy 修心受樂
mentally kind 慈悲養性
behaviorally charitable 修行為善
spiritually enlightened 正見靈修

 

 

 

 

 

Systemic wishes for the Chinese New Year to you all! According to the Five Aggregate Human Mind system developed by Buddha, our minds are composed of five systems. Systemic Healthcare is about balancing each one of these systems, and balancing between the systems. The ultimate goal is to live healthily so that we can work and play and achieve our tasks in life. Let us examine the wishes and present an introduction to the way to achieve them.

Chinese people believe that planning should be done at the beginning of the year and the beginning of the day. During Chinese New Year, people in China make good wishes for themselves and for others, and only auspicious words should come out of their lips. They have special blessing phrases usually comprising four Chinese characters. Let us find out how all these wishes can come true.

The basic essentials in life include clothing, food, housing and transportation. In the Confucian classic, one of the disciples once said “Food and sex are basic instincts of human beings”. The desire for food ensures the physical survival of oneself, and the instinct on sexual desire makes sure the continuation of the family, clan and race. In order to have a stable flow, better basic essentials are required. They are usually related to the following four-character blessing phrases.

豐衣足食《戰國策。秦策五》 Plentiful clothing and abundant food supply.安居樂業 Comfortable living and good career行動方便 Convenient movement交通方便Convenient transportation四通八達Unobstructed spatial connection朝發暮至《後漢書。烏桓傳》Speedy connection from one place to another

These desires stimulate the research into efficient and effective methods for good survival and continuity, and part of the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Healthcare is about physical body healthcare. Here we will try to match it with the physical component of the Five Aggregate Human Mind System developed by Buddha. TCM healthcare can be divided into three different secret ingredients.

The first ingredient is the TCM diet which includes the technique of having “ample food”. The essence of the TCM diet is their categorization of food into COLD, COOL, MILD, WARM and HOT, which also extends to the same categorization of herbs. TCM names this extension “The common source of food and herbs”. Using the 3D Superficial-Internal, Cold-Hot, and Deficient-Excess spectrums co-ordination system, one can perform the Differential-diagnosis to determine the state (position) of the body, and hence the corresponding healthcare food.

In order to have convenient movement and transportation, and unobstructed spatial connection, one needs good ability for physical body movement. Therefore the second part of the TCM Healthcare secret is the TCM exercise therapy – Open and Close 21 form. This includes the essence of the popular traditional Chinese Taichi Kung Fu. We filter away the fighting techniques and leave only those forms that can train all the joints of the human body for speedy recovery from pain caused by tendon injuries and physical sickness. 

After handling the instinct for food, now let us investigate the issue of sexual impulses. The common definition of sex is impulses generated by the sex organ causing emotional desire of the mind (heart) followed by the act of sexual intercourse. The definition of sex can be expanded into a wider and more general basis as craving impulses of the mind for continuation of the family, clan and race, which then generate emotions to make love. Such craving gives rise to the study into effective and efficient strategies for sustainment of families, countries and the world, as in the teaching of Confucianism. These Healthcare strategies are included in the third part of the secret – Lifestyle Healthcare.

Craving impulses stimulate the attainment action in our behavior. The “Twelve casualty cycle” in the teaching of Buddha points out that “craving” and “desire to attain” are two of the immortal seeds in the cycle. Similar teaching also appears in the teaching of Laozi (Lao Tsz 46): “No disaster is greater than being discontented. No catastrophe is greater than having unlimited desires. Contentment of oneself deriving from the feeling of not wanting more things will always make one feel satisfied at all times”.

Therefore the next step after physical healthcare is emotional and mental healthcare, both of which are usually linked in Chinese culture. Here we try to match the emotional healthcare with the heart system, i.e., the “sensation aggregate”, and also match the mental healthcare with human character, the liver system, i.e., the “perspective aggregate”, of the Five Aggregate Human Mind System developed by Buddha.

The goal of emotional healthcare is to remain undisturbed by negative emotions thus falling into a vicious cycle. One should instead consistently concentrate on positive emotions, gradually and naturally resulting in the distillation of happy emotions and pleasant bodily sensations.

Mental Healthcare aims to improve one’s habitual love and hate tendencies. We should eliminate feelings of jealousy for the rich and contempt for the poor. One should also forsake employing improper means purely to succeed. Nor should one selfishly seek pleasure at the expense of the feelings of others. In contrast we should develop our love towards the four pure characteristics in the teaching of Buddha, and relinquish the three evil toxic characteristics of human, namely craving, aversion and ignorance. The four pure characteristics can be simply understood as “unconditional love” towards others, mercy on the elderly and weak, sympathetic joy of sharing, and acceptance of the reality of life and human relations.

Behavioral Healthcare is about our action, and we try to match it with the “Action Aggregate” of the Five Aggregate Human Mind system of the teaching of Buddha. Buddha divides the Action Aggregate into three different kinds, namely the bodily action, the verbal action and the mental intention action (brain wave? energy field?). The teachings of Buddha include: “Do not withhold an action because it will only do little good, and do not perform an action because it will only do little evil”. Therefore we should choose only charitable actions with goodwill.  Only such actions could achieve the traditional Chinese wish of “Everyone embraced in one harmonious Qi”. The definition of being healthy by the World Health Organization, WHO, includes healthiness in three aspects, namely the physical, mental and “social”.

Spiritual Healthcare is about the improvement of our in-born characteristics, possibly hidden in our physical DNA or our energetic “spirits” fields (Aura?). We now try to match this with the “Observation Aggregate” of the Five Aggregate Human Mind system in the teaching of Buddha. Here we must put our foundation in the fundamental teaching of Buddha in the “Four Nobel Truth”, guided especially by the “Right View” and “Right Thought” in the “Eight-Fold Nobel Path”, which is the fourth part of the Noble Truth.

In summary, we have, in our lives, all experienced “I failed as much as I have succeeded. (Dicky Fox in movie Jerry Maguire 1996)”, and the pain of aging, sickness and death of our loved ones. From these experiences we should try to realize the truth of “Dissatisfaction (Suffering)”. Our experience also shows that unexpected changes in people and events around us would stimulate unexpected emotions and bodily sensations within us. We should from these experiences come to realize the truth of “Impermanence”. In Behavioral Healthcare we practice the act of helping others unconditionally with different degree of sacrifices. We should from these experiences come to realize the truth of “Egolessness”. And in short, we should live in the present moment (awareness), happily accept the karma and reality (equanimity), live our lives properly (Right Livelihood), respect others (sympathetic joy), have mercy for the elderly and the young (Compassion), and love others unconditionally.

To be continued… keep an eye on our social media.

Healthcare and Meditation are complicated knowledge. Here we are barely presenting an introduction. To learn properly, you should consult your teachers and masters in Confucianism, Buddhism, and Taoism, and Chinese Medicine Practitioners (E C), and other professionals.

More wishes for you: Healthcare successful!

Smiling at all times, Satisfactory progress academically, Shinning on you from your lucky star, Peace for the elderly and the young, Healthy physical growth, Dreams come true, Safe Travelling, Tranquility for all seasons, Immortality with the Universe, Coverage in a Harmonious Qi, Wishes for perpetual happiness and pleasantness, Youthfulness forever, Good appetite is good karma, Strong team and equipment, Five blessings knocking on your door, Energetic like the shining star, Happiness in the New Year, Smart and presentable, Lucky redness glowing on your face, Welcome the Spring and receive good luck, Achieving success according to your wishes, Develop Spectacular and outstanding skills, Good circulation of Fung Shui
