ORIGINS & DEVELOPMENT A major part of the belief system is its emphasis on learning and as a source of values. Confucius lived in a time of political violence, so the stage was set for a teacher to emerge with a philosophy promoting social and ethical calm and who saw perfection in all people.

    9. 9. CONFUCIUS & LOYALTY How do you induce people to be loyal?  “Approach them with dignity, and they will respect you. Show piety towards your parents and kindness toward your children, and they will be loyal to you. Promote those who are worthy, train those who are incomopetent, that is the best form of encouragement.”
    10. 10. YIN & YANG  Complementary forces that make up all aspects of life.  Yin is female, earth, dark, passive & absorbing.  Yang is male, heaven, light, active & penetrating.  The symbol shows the harmony of the two.
