Beyond the 5-points of Fellowship

About: ming translator new

In order to move away from a possibly bloody revolution to evolution & transformation of some of the best of the past to a future which inspires, fulfills & draws us forward with enthusiasm we need to revisit the 5-points of fellowship. We need to build new guilds of people with skills who can satisfy the needs of those who want to be within the fellowship kiayun. We must look around & notice that we are still a people who can rely upon ourselves to produce & manage our own lives free of the tyranny & opression of debts incurred by Big Government.  Who would you want to work with except those who can commit to the five ? How many of you are there who can commit to the Golden Rule & these 5 points of fellowship?
  1. Loyal - choong - ancient etymology, modern etymology
  2. Active - doong - ancient etymology, modern etymology
  3. Worthy - kung1 - ancient etymology, modern etymology
  4. Descrete - jeng - ancient etymology, modern etymology
  5. Aspire - den - ancient etymology, modern etymology

Hex 11 thwan is some of my inspiration here.

Then too, mismatching the above, there might be a few who would love to be surrounded by disloyal, inactive (lazy), unworthy, indiscreet & uninspiring people.
Not me!

Then too, you could try to gather a group of people with the above dispositions together & see how far you would get trying to accomplish something.

when we combine our actions with others to accomplish some goal, we must not loose sight of our obligations to the bonds of the group, and at the same time we must actively hold up our end of the bargain while we maintain our focus on the agreed upon goal.  

i think that common sense wisdom of how we best work in a group is well reflected in the five points of fellowship. 

What do the Chinese characters add to that?

I did point out in 16629 that the etymology of loyalty in Chinese & Ming is centered in the heart or heart-centered - the root idea. If your heart is not in the group your heart & loyalty will be somewhere else. Others have similarly interesting etymology to crisp up the core ideas. Aspiration is to climb a mountain, etc.  A study of etymology helps unburden some of the baggage & get to the core values. [Item: item 16601] gives more clues to the usage of Ming.
