  • Quotes from Sifu (Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit

    My Dear Family,

    For 2018 I would like to open a thread on quotes that mean a lot to you from Sifu. It can be from Sifu's books, his Autobiography, Q&A's, courses or over a meal.

    I shared one on FB recently and I have been thinking a lot of it since.

    Do not ask rhetoric questions that deter you from your goal, just get on with the task that leads you to your goal of overcoming your illness
    Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit taken from http://www.shaolin.org/answers/sp-issues/choice.html

    I feel that we often block ourselves in daily life also, not just in overcoming illness, which is why I like this little gem

    So............

    I invite you all to join the thread with your favourite quote or one that has meaning for you.

    Just one quote please with each post and mention where you read it or heard it.

    Then it will be easier to read back over them throughout the year. Of course, you can post as often as you like!

    Many Blessings and Enjoy!
    Joan

    Lovely idea for a thread.

    One of my (many) favourites comes from Cosmic Breathing, Small Universe and Big Universe. It is the clarity of the instructions that still strike me each time I hear them:

            Two quotes from Sigung I like a lot:

            When you clear your mind of all thoughts, you don't become a moron, but you can see things clearly and take effective decisions.

            Success is made of 5% opportunity and 95% perspiration.

              One of the reason I daily check Sigungs webpage is a quote section. One of my favourite is:

              A good speach is comparatively the same like a miniskirt: it must be long enough to cover the important things and short enough to keep things interessting.

                Kung Fu is ...........

                Something that was obvious but struck a chord at the Essence of Shaolin, as we were all practicing stances Sigung just casually says;

                'Kung Fu is an energetic Art'

                It occurred to me then the significance physical form and stances.

                    Its one of the greatest teachings to me:


                    The Small Universe multiplies events many times.

                    Have good thoughts, events will turn out well. Have bad thoughts, events will turn out badly.

                    Always have good thoughts.
                    Thank You Sigung

                      This quote I heard from Sifu 15 years ago at a chi kung course has guided me well:

                      "Anything worth getting in life you have to work hard for it, nothing worth getting in life comes to you on a plate."
                      Thank you Sifu!
                      You should not only aim at the destination but also enjoy the journey. You should not just celebrate the achievement but also cherish the effort.

                        Spiritual Cleansing

                        My Dear Family,

                        These are wonderful. Thank you!

                        Here is one from the Cleansing, Building and Nourishing Q&A when I asked Sifu a question in my first few months of practice. It made a huge impression on me as I didn't even consider such a thing happening.

                        http://www.shaolin.org/answers/sp-issues/joan.html

                        Spiritually, cleansing removes negative traits like fear and loneliness. Building enables you to have spiritual wisdom and provides you with spiritual strength whereby you may feel you are as powerful as gods! Not many people, of course, believe this, and some may find this concept heretical.
                        This is also a delicate and risky stage where many people fall to their human weakness, such as becoming vain or abusing their spiritual power for evil intensions. Many people, including some of my senior students, fall at this stage. They became arrogant, and thought they were more powerful than their own teachers (who so kindly had led them, often hand in hand and step by step, touch an advanced stage). Here is one important reason why respecting the master is so very important, and it is for the students' interest
                        .

                        Sifu's Q&A's are a treasure!

                        Happy training,
                        Joan

                          One of the earliest answers I received from Sifu eight years ago is something I find worthwhile to re-read every so often. We get treasures right at the start of our training; best not to neglect them!

                          I like making silly videos (including kung fu ones!) every so often on YouTube and taking pictures of weird things on Instagram.

                            Dear Frederick,

                            That is very beautiful and so true!

                              Covering!

                              Here is one from the Valentine's 2018 for posterity.
