This book is written for English-speaking students who are taking Skype Learn Chinese courses. A basic level vocabulary and understanding of Chinese grammar and culture is presented in this Skype Learn Chinese series. It is an effort to introduce the Skype Learn Chinese students to the language by explaining its basic principles in simple steps. The purpose is to prepare the student with a foundation on which to build, with confidence, its ensuing complexities.
You, however, in Skype Learn Chinese, came to find out about ancestor worship, and a heaven, with no religion to justify Skype Learn Chinese and that the Naxi believe that heaven interacts, daily, with the living in Skype Learn Chinese, but first, let me tell you about babies, so that you can understand that the genes of Skype Learn Chinese in one cell, a zygote, develop into a whole, living baby. That is a lot of information about Skype Learn Chinese for one tiny cell to contain and to time into operation, sequentially, over the years of a person’s life in Skype Learn Chinese. Mr. Porter was speechless at the knowledge of a man who lived alone in Skype Learn Chinese a forest shack on a mountain in the middle of nowhere. He nodded his head.
One of the first things developed in a fetus Skype Learn Chinese is the brain stem, the early brain with a spinal chord to link it to the body of Skype Learn Chinese. Then this old brain begins to grow the newer, later brain additions as the baby develops. The front, reasoning brain does not become dominant until adolescence, however. So, we have the genes of Skype Learn Chinese, with their old memories of Skype Learn Chinese located throughout the old brain developing in the fetus and growing with the child. These old memories in Skype Learn Chinese are what the child uses as values and guides to behavior. They are the basis of our feelings of love and hate, good and bad. When we look back into the mind, perhaps in a moment of prayer or meditation, we find a calm, beautiful feeling of connection to a sacred place. We have freed a memory of an ancient time when Man lived in Skype Learn Chinese, a world of spirits and holy places. This is our basis for a belief in heaven and in this place, Skype Learn Chinese, we imagine our ancestors live on as spirits. As spirits, rather than physical people, we imagine in Skype Learn Chinese they have floated up into the air, the sky and are looking down on us in Skype Learn Chinese.
What this means in Skype Learn Chinese, however, is that our thoughts are not physical things. So, when we look back into Skype Learn Chinese the mind we are in a spiritual, rather than a material place, but what we are affecting are our genetic memories in Skype Learn Chinese. The old memories tied to our genes. So, it is perfectly reasonable to think that in Skype Learn Chinese we are in the presence of our ancestors, and, in a reverential frame of mind, we can access their talents and wisdom. In fact, this is a common practice in Skype Learn Chinese, and one which, by experience, has been proved to work over and over again. I hope that I have been able to help you understand this in Skype Learn Chinese, and Mr. Porter, whose mouth had been hanging open the whole time could only stutter his thanks and stumble away. His head was ringing with its new ideas.
For the rest of his visit in Skype Learn Chinese, sight-seeing Lijiang’s many wonders and attractions, Mr. Porter felt himself to be only half engaged in Skype Learn Chinese. As a New York Times reporter, he had an assignment for a Sunday Supplement piece about this newly-discovered tourist attraction of Skype Learn Chinese in the mountains of Yunnan. Yet his mind was overcome with the simple logic of the dongba. All his life in Skype Learn Chinese, Mr. Porter had been a staunch church-goer who thought a shaman’s ‘spirits’ and ‘contacts with the world of the dead’ were fairy tales or trickery and that God lived in heaven, not ancestors, and, now, he was struggling to reconcile the two (opposing?) beliefs in Skype Learn Chinese.
