(Unusual Animal spotted by Emperor Fu Shi)

河圖-一六居北,二七居南,三八居左,四九居右,五十居中者河圖也

 

This formation is the root and basis of Ba Gua (Pa Kua) and later the I-Ching, Book of Changes is based on Ba Gua concept.

Stories from Ancient Chinese Wisdom

The Goat and Turtle Race

There was once a goat challenged the Turtle for a race and the turtle agreed to race him the next day. During the race, the over-confidence goat looked down the turtle and said to him ‘you will never going to beat me as my speed is much faster than you are’. The turtle replied ‘say no more and let the race begin’. Just after the starting point, the over confidence goat asked ‘Where are you turtle? You are nowhere to be found’. He then heard voice in front of him and realized that was the turtle. ‘You better catch-up, I am in front of you’ said the turtle.  The goat then runs to the fullest and after a while, he looked around and asked again ‘Where are you turtle? You are nowhere to be found’. The voice came out from the woods and said, ‘You better catch-up, I am in front of you’ said the turtle. The over-confidence goat started to tumble and in deep fear. It was rather obvious that his over-confidence started to diminish, he continues to run to the fullest, and by the time, he reached the finishing point the turtle already there. The goat wept and his confidence was totally wiped out. 

(Knowing the race was one-day later, turtle gathered all his family members to line up from the starting point until the finishing point. The intelligence is better than the speed!) 

The Smart Kid and the old Wise Man

One day, a smart kid try to challenge an old wise man by asking him a question, “You are a wise man known to have all the answers in life with advance, I am holding a bird in my hand, do you know the little bird ‘alive or dead’?. The old wise man was a bit shock, knowing if he answers alive, the smart kid would have kill the bird, at the same token of his answer was dead, he would have set the bird free. The wise man was court in between hard and a rock place. Guess what the wise man answer was.  “The fate of the bird lies in your hand’, he then walked away.
