The German philosopher Jaspers, in his book The Origins and Goals of History published in 1949, mentioned the Axial Age and gained resonance in the academic world. The axis era is probably from 800 BC to 200 BC, especially from 600 BC to 300 BC. In such a period of time, the area that occurred was about 30 degrees north latitude, that is, 25 degrees north latitude to north latitude At 35 degrees, on this planet, different peoples have simultaneously produced their spiritual leaders and spiritual teachers. For example, Chinese, etc.; Sakyamuni in ancient India; Jewish prophets in Israel; ancient Greek
In the Axial Age, among the major nations and civilizations of the world, such a group of very outstanding and outstanding and even great thinkers have emerged. Their thoughts are still shining like the stars in the sky, and the history of thought in the history of world philosophy Many original theories start from this era, so the Axial Age is the golden age of human civilization, and it has left a very precious cultural heritage for human civilization.
Why so many brilliant cultures appeared collectively In that era, researchers were puzzled and left a big mystery in the history of world culture.
Lao Tzu is in this era of axis. It is the native culture of China and the world. Lao Tzu left the answer in the Tao Te Ching, Chapter 54: Cultivate in the body, its virtue is true; Cultivate in the home, its virtue is the rest; Cultivate in the country, its virtue is the longest; Cultivate in the state, its virtue is the rich; Repair it in the world and its De Naipu. It means that a truly spiritual person always keeps home, township, state, and world in mind, and then his own fate will change to different levels of home, township, state, and world. What Lao Tzu reveals is the subjective consciousness of his mind. The relationship between the world and the objective material world, and there is an inevitable connection.
Among them, there is a point-to-point correspondence, just like the two fish-eyes in the Taiji diagram, which changes from time to time; there is also a point-to-point correspondence, just like the fish-eye in the Taiji diagram and the fish in the instrument. thing.
When a thought is released in the universe, it will have the same frequency of thoughts echoing it. He may be separated by a long distance, or the timeline may be extended to see the results in the future.
There is no deviation in this correspondence relationship, Lao Tzu said: Xi Xi Xun Xi has an image; Xi Xi Xun Xi, there is something; Xi Xi Ming Xi, there is essence, its essence is true, and there is faith. There is a letter in it means the letter test, which must mean this. Lao Tzu must have passed countless practices before leaving it to future generations.
A good thought that is in harmony with virtue and morality will spread, the avenue will spread and will bloom everywhere, so in the era of Lao Tzu, wise men frequented, different civilizations used different perspectives and different words to explain together The question of the origin of the world.
Lao Tzu s thinking is not out of date, she has a huge historical tension, can penetrate ten thousand years of time and space, and will become the choice of human mainstream culture.
