Guided by Heaven’s way . . .

Strife in not new. Politics, wars, border lines, economics, you name it. It is clear that we are repeating the past, but will we learn from it?

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” George Santayana (1863 – 1952)

Maybe we can learn from Liu Bei, a Shu ruler during the Han dynasty in China.

“To restore order to the world, one must regain the hearts of the people, and the hearts of the people are best guided by following Heaven’s way.” (Three Kingdoms, episode 4)

Sounds simple, but even Liu Bei had trouble following this premise and experienced tremendous loss because of his failings.

We all do the best we can at any given moment. Maybe that is the lesson we can learn.
