    Dear Shaolin Wahnam Family,

    Please find below another wonderful and inspiring quote from Sifu:

    "It is never a sin to be poor, but it is sinful not to improve yourself and your family when you know that you have not been providing for them adequately. You live in the richest country in the world. If you make some effort you can surely improve yourself and your family.

    But whatever you do must be ethical and honourable; that is very important. Never do anything that can harm others, no matter how attractive the financial returns may be. “You may cheat heaven and earth, but you can never cheat your own conscience. No matter what you do, you must be clear in your conscience.” This is the best teaching my sifu, Sifu Ho Fatt Nam, taught me.

    The greatest teaching this great Shaolin master taught me was not Shaolin Kungfu or Shaolin Chi Kung, though these Shaolin arts are par excellence without comparison; his greatest teaching is this being clear in our conscience. This teaching has enabled me to be very happy and to have no fear — not because I am competent in Shaolin Kungfu but because I know I have never done any wrong wilfully." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit

      Dear Shaolin Wahnam Family,

      Please find below another beautiful and wonderful quote from Sifu:

      "Chi kung is probably the best gift to the West from the Chinese civilization. It helps to answer two urgent problems facing the West today, namely overcoming a wide range of chronic, degnerative diseases, and overcoming psychiatric problems, including intrapersonal loneliness despite material affluence. But it is important to learn chi kung from genuine masters, who are now hard to find in both the East and the West." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit

        Dear Shaolin Wahnam Family,

        Please find another wonderful and inspiring quote from Sifu:

        "You will have your own choice of qualities to look for in the right girl. But I shall mention one important quality. She must also love you. This may or may not be the first or second most important quality you want in your right girl, but it is an essential quality. In other words, no matter how wonderful she may be, if she does not also love you, then she is not your right girl. You should not waste your time on her. There are literally thousands of other eligible girls elsewhere." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit

          My Dear Family,

          Thank you so much for getting into the spirit of the thread, especially Santi! Sifu's advice and quotes are always an invaluable source of inspiration and guidance, which I deeply appreciate.

          I am including another piece of advice here from Sifu.

          'An invaluable piece of advice I learned from my master, Sifu Ho Fatt Nam, is that any good kungfu or qigong type should have both hard and soft, internal and external aspects. If it is only hard or soft, internal or external, it is not an advanced art. Shaolin Kungfu is often mistaken to be hard only, whereas Taijiquan is only soft. Indeed Shaolin Kungfu, such as the Cotton Palm, can be very soft; and Taijiquan, such as the elbow strike in Chen style, can be hard.' Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit taken from : https://shaolin.org/answers/ans97/nov-dec97.html

          It is amazing how many people do not believe that Taijiquan can be hard, especially as teachers speak about the Yin and Yang element of this art. Everything in balance!

          Thank you Sifu and thank you my wonderful family.

          Smile from the Heart,

            Thank you Sije for your kind words. They are very much appreciated. :-)

            Please find below another beautiful and wonderful quote from Sifu:

            "Remember that God or the Cosmos help those who help themselves. Don't just hope and wait. You have to actively go out and work hard and honestly to get a good wife. Most important, you yourself must be a good husband." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit

              Dear Shaolin Wahnam Family,

              Please find below another beautiful and inspiring quote from Sifu:

              "This is the first part of the method to overcome your problem. Be reminded that the problem here is not how to find the right girl — this will be explained later. The problem here is that you allow your heart to be constantly broken and you feel very bad about it. To avoid this happening again, you have to clear your mental blockage by understanding the following three points:

              1. The girls themselves did not break your heart. You allow your heart to be broken.

              2. This happened because you were in love with love. Somehow you believed that having your heart broken was part of the process of being in love. This was a perverted view. You should find the right girl to place your love in.

              3. You can choose the qualities you like in your right girl, but an essential quality is that she must also love you. Otherwise, don't waste your time on her. There are literally thousands of other lovely girls waiting for you to sincerely love them.

              Now the practical part, which is simple yet very profound.

              Early every morning go to the open, or to an open window if the weather outside is unfavorable, and smile from the heart. Just do this. Just smile from the heart. Simple. And profound." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit

                Dear Shaolin Wahnam Family,

                Please find below another beautiful quote from Sifu:

                "True peace comes from inside, from our heart. “Heart” here is not the organic heart; it is the spiritual heart. Different peoples may call it differently, such as the soul, the mind, the spirit or the consciousness.

                Meditation is a common way to cultivate the heart. High level chi kung and great kungfu, like Shaolin and Taijiquan, are also excellent ways. In our school, cultivating the heart is an essential part of our training. Cultivating the heart needs to be learnt personally from a competent teacher, who himself has inner peace. You cannot learn this from a book, a video or a teacher who himself is stressful.

                When your heart is peaceful you can live your daily life in peace despite its environment. This does not mean that you will never be angry, nervous or stressful at all. You may if your daily life is sometimes compromised, but you will be able to handle it competently and return to your norm, which is living your day to day life in peace.

                You also need to have high moral values to be peaceful. Follow the moral code of your own religion or spiritual teaching. In Shaolin Wahnam we follow the Ten Shaolin Laws." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit

                  Dear Shaolin Wahnam Family and Kwoon Readers,

                  Please find below another beautiful and inspiring quote from Sifu:

                  "Spiritual cultivation is an essential part of our training right from the very beginning to the most advanced. Spiritual cultivation is non-religions, but it makes a person more devoted to his own chosen religion if he already has one because it enables him to directly experience some of the most important teachings in his own religion. One sure and rewarding way you can cultivate spiritually is to spend some quality time with your parents, and be kind to them." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit

                    "Indeed, to be born human, male or female, is a great blessing. He or she must have accumulated a lot of good karma in the past. To be born wholesome is a greater blessing. The blessing to be born in a highly civilized society like yours is even greater. And the greatest blessing is to be born human, male or female, wholesome in a civilized society and be exposed to spiritual teaching like ours in Shaolin Wahnam. We have a lot to be grateful for." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit

                      Please find below another beautiful and inspiring quote from Sifu:

                      "Cosmic wisdom is different from ordinary knowledge and worldly wisdom. Knowing that you can quench your thirst by drinking water is ordinary knowledge. Knowing that your chance of having your leave approved is better when you ask your boss while he is happy than while he is angry is worldly wisdom.

                      Understanding and appreciating that goodness will bring goodness, that your real being is your spirit, that you body is changing all the time, that you spirit can expand beyond your body, that mind can materialize events, that our phenomenal world is an illusion, is cosmic wisdom." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit

                        "Whenever you are in doubt, a very good piece of advice is to ask your inner consciousness, or in religious terms, to ask God. Your inner consciousness which is in contact with the Universal Mind or God will always give you a right answer." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit

                          Dear Shaolin Wahnam Family,

                          Please find below another wonderful and inspiring quote from Sifu that I personally love:

                          "Heart-to-heart transmission has puzzled many people. Many teachers, of course, would like to have this amazing teaching skills, but there is nowhere they could learn it.

                          But you are going to learn it here.

                          Firstly, what exactly is meant by heart-to-heart transmission?

                          The answer is simple, direct and effective. It is transmission of learning from the heart of the teacher to the heart of the student. Once you understand this simple and direct statement, learning it becomes effective.

                          Heart-to-heart transmission is the transmission of knowledge, skills or whatever teaching materials from the heart of the teacher to the heart of the student. It is not the passing over of materials from the mouth of the teacher to one ear of the student to come out from the other ear.

                          Heart-to-heart transmission may operate at three levels – physical, energy and mind. This division is for convenience of understanding. In practice, all the three levels are involved, though there may be emphasis on one particular level." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit

                            Dear Shaolin Wahnam Family,

                            Please find another quote from Sifu that I consider very inspiring:

                            Here are some factors regarding your job that you should consider:

                            1. Whether it is noble. One may earn a lot of money stealing trade secrets from other companies, but I don't consider the job noble.

                            2. Whether it will bring you the type of income you want. It is noble working as a volunteer in a hospital, but it does not bring me the income I want.

                            3. Whether you like the job. This is important. If you cannot do what you like, at least you must like what you do.

                            4. Whether you still have free time to spend with your parents, friends or hobbies. There are other enjoyable and important things in life besides doing a job well.

                            5. Whether it is necessary to invest a lot of time and money to learn the job. If you want to be a doctor, you need to spend many years studying in a university. To be a chi kung healer helping patients overcome so-called incurable diseases needs less time. When you are equally successful, you earn more money than a doctor and have more free time.

                            6. Whether there is leverage in your job. As a doctor or healer, you treat one patient at a time. As a teacher you can teach one hundred students at the same time.

                            7. Whether you are limited by location and clients. If you are a car mechanic, your area of operation and potential clients are localized. If you are a computer consultant, you area of operation and potential clients are world-wide." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit

                              Please find below another inspiring and wonderful quote from Sifu:

                              "An excellent way to test whether one has a skill is to experience it. To test whether you have the skill to drive a car competently is to drive a car competently. To test whether you can let energy flow along your arm and consolidate it at your finger is to do it –- using One-Finger Shooting Zen or any suitable movements. To test whether you have strong fingers for a grip, or whether you can explode force from your dan tian in a punch, is to do it.

                              Our Shaolin Wahnam students can understand the explanation and perform the test, and they can know whether they succeed. But for many other people, not only they cannot perform the test, they may not understand what we are talking about here. The reason is that they do not differentiate between skills and techniques." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit

                                Please find below another inspiring quote from Sifu:

                                "In daily life, your skills of generating an energy flow and consolidating it into internal force will give you good health, vitality and longevity. If you are in pain or sick, you can generate an energy flow to overcome the pain or sickness. You will be able to carry on physical as well as mental activities more competently, without painting for breadths and without becoming tired easily. Your grip on physical objects will be firm, and by extension your grip on mental concepts will be sure.

                                Your skill to explode force from your dan tian will enable you to be assertive when necessary, yet be calm and relaxed at the same time.

                                It is worthwhile to bear in mind that we are able to have such benefits in daily life not because of the techniques we practice in our kungfu training, but because of the skills we have developed from our practice." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit
