Inspiration from The Doctrine of the Mean
Da Xue (The Great Learning) and Zhong Yong (The Doctrine of the Mean) were originally in Li Ji (The Record of Rites). It was Zhu Xi the famous Song dynasty compiler and commentator who had taken both Da Xue and Zong Yong out of the Li Ji and put them together with Lun Yu (The Analects) and Mencius to form the Four Books of the Confucian Classics. The Four Books , along with the Five Classics, were adopted as the core curriculum for the imperial examination in the Ming and Qing dynasties. The Doctine of the Mean places special emphasis on sincere intentions and personal intergrity. The complete sincere person can even stand together with Heaven and Earth to support and uphold all things.
