A continuation of a conversation with Wu Qiujing in Fujian Province, Zhangzhou, China
WQ - Good evening, Hanshi.
SK – Hello.
WQ - How's your day?
SK - Very excellent and I am still at it.
WQ – Good. I have some questions to ask you. Do you have time?
SK – Sure.
WQ - What do you mean by Self-Revealization? Is it to know more about human nature?
SK – Human nature would be an aspect of it. It is about you as an individual desiring to ascend to a higher level of consciousness about your own personal life so that you can experience newness in all things wanted.
WQ – In Chinese, 'revealization' is like to show, to exhibit, to explode.
SK - That's a good analogy...an explosion of reality, a show of new perspective, an exhibition of a desire being manifested into one's life. Keep asking these questions. I like being put to the test. It helps me to understand my own objectives and motivation
WQ – Very cool, very cool. That’s great. It cuts through new-age mumbo-jumbo and mystical philosophy to explain. Does 'cuts through' here mean 'skip'?
SK - That is exactly what I am doing and I believe I have hit upon a universal methodology to benefit the world. I am not being arrogant or conceited or filled with false pride. I honestly know that my work is eminently ordained by the highest authority in the universe. ‘Cuts through’ means to do away with the nonsense that others try to foist on people to keep them ensnared in their own traps; self-made or not.
WQ – OK, I see. Its like to revoke.
SK – I don't think revoke is the word you want to use unless you mean that an individual is revoking the absurdities that they have lived with for as many years as they are on the earth.
WQ – Perhaps like ‘satirize’?
SK – I prefer to use the term ‘denying’ in relationship to refusing past difficulties any further authority in one's life. Satirize would mean to belittle something and in that way actually give it power of the situation. We don't want to satirize conditions that others may be suffering from. By the way, it is my philosophy to not make too much meaning if something is actually simple in context. Creating more ways to say something goes back to building up more mumbo jumbo, etc
WQ – OK, but in Chinese 'cut through' is like taking a shortcut. When you say ‘The Quality of Life is Based on Desire,’ in Chinese the quality of life is the meaning of the basic condition of life.
SK – Right.
WQ - It's right?
SK - Don't confuse Chinese with English either. There are universal truths that override EVERY culture. The basic condition of life is self-determined by the individual relative to the choices that are made, or made for them.
WQ – I was thinking whether you want to express another meaning like different attitude will create different lives, so if a life is happy or not it may be due to one’s attitude like desire.
SK – I don’t want you to get into creative translations. I want you to translate the book exactly as written. I don’t want any additional commentary.
WQ – Someone may just want to have the existing condition and they don’t want to change means that they will always have the same condition.
SK – Yes, and that is what SRA is for. If someone doesn't want to change conditions they will still be using SRA but in a negative form. It would be totally counter productive. You will see from the table of contents that I deal with very deep concepts of personal values and that is why I make sure to include a Self-Revealization Acceptance at the end of every chapter. You will see this when you get the book.
WQ – OK, that’s good. I am sure I will have questions concerning the content.
SK – I look forward to your challenges for me. Anything else for now?
WQ - Life is based on personal choices, for better or worse, and the desire to see them through—to completion.
SK - That is correct. The need to know if something is good or bad for you and the ability to make that determination is another aspect of SRA training and thinking.
WQ - So you mean if you want to know whether the choice is good or bad for you, you need to do it?
SK - When you decide that something has to be changed, you go to work on yourself and demand of the STI to bring about the correction. That is what the Self Revealization Acceptance is for. It is a complete methodology for mastery of one's life environments and it never fails to bring about the desired result.
