MY religion- part 2: CONFUCIUS SAY...

carrying on my last post, here's another religion (though more like a philosophical guideline) that i really like. not hard to guess, it's all about Confucianism.

in many ways, Confucianism is very similar to the mindset of the Libra horoscope. there are several virtues, namely the big 5: Humaneness, Justice/Righteousness, Propriety/Etiquette, Knowledge, and Integrity. it's all about moral goodness, and unbiased judgement.

all the virtues of Confucianism add up to one golden rule, "Do not do unto others what you would not have them do unto you". if only the whole world could have a basic understanding of this, then we would all be living happily ever after. there would be no war, no strife, we could be living in a real life Eden.

whats more, Confucius wasn't just some idealist, he was a true philosopher, and a politician. studying the logic of humanity, ethical philosophy, he was a true gentleman in all extents.

i even bought a book about Confucius, though i never finished it, and honestly i dont know where it is anymore, but i really look up to his philosophy.

should i make my own religion, i'll be taking a lot of extracts from his Book of Analects (lol ANALects).
