'Learning the Nei Jing in Small Bites™,' Su Wen, Chapter One, Session 1: Huang Di & Qi Bo Begin Their Dialogue
The beginning of the discussion in Chapter One dwells on the characteristics of the Yellow Emperor and those of 'antiquity' compared to the common person at the time of the compilation of the text about 2300 years or more ago.
We are very far from the age of the cultivation of the virtues discussed in the text or, more or less contemporaneously, with those discussed in the Tao Teh Ching.
Our times are, arguably, far more challenging in many ways to the conditions inside of which the ancients lived. May we learn many lessons from Qi Bo and Huang Di!
