Chinese writer Lan Xin is interviewed by Turkish 3.Göz magazine
Hello Lan Xin,
I am Güler and I would firstly like to thank you for your interest in our 3.Göz magazine. I am the editor in chief of our magazine.I wanted to be sure because these days, as you said, we are responsible for saying what we have to say on this subject.And I am glad that we are on the same page.Teaching people how to lead more mindful and conscious lives and awakening those who seek more awareness is the main aim of us.You can visit www.3gozdergisi.com to have a better idea.
In your February article of "Reflections on the Epidemic", you shared your incisive thoughts and insights about the pandemic.Back then, for many in Turkey, that topic was almost irrelevant, seen as something happening somewhere out there that would never reach our shores; whereas now, the country is almost in a complete lockdown like anywhere else in the world.We have mixed feelings.We would like to do an interview with you and hope to get your support.
1.You say you have discovered your purpose in life.How would you describe it? What would be the ultimate message you would like to give to other people?
Lan Xin: Everyone has mission, but some people have found, and some people are looking for the road, and some people completely unaware of their mission.When you find your destiny, you'll never mind what you've endured.Let go of what's lost, endured, paid, gained, enjoyed…You will no longer care about what is lost, endured, given, gained, enjoyed…It's about looking at karma, looking at what's going on in the moment, in the broader context of the mission…It doesn't matter how busy, how hard, how tired…What I care about is what I have brought to the people around me, what I have brought to the predestined people, and what I have left to the world…Everything you give, you enjoy it, because fulfilling your mission is itself a great joy and enjoyment.
This life, I was born for love, I came for love.My mission is to spread the wisdom of love.As a writer, I hope to unlock people’s wisdom of love —to know it, to discover it, to create it, to be it, to possess it, to deliver it—with the compassion, the thought, the wisdom that I have realized.
2.Can we learn more about the DongBa culture? What is the core wisdom of DongBa culture?
Lan Xin: Thank you for your attention to DongBa culture! DongBa culture refers to the ancient and mysterious culture of Na Xi nationality in China.It is a world memory heritage with a history of more than 2,000 years.It mainly includes DongBa scripture, DongBa painting, DongBa music, DongBa dance, DongBa artifacts and various sacrificial ceremonies.Among them, DongBa hieroglyphic script is known as "the only surviving hieroglyphic script in the world".DongBa culture is mainly concentrated in LiJiang, China, which has become a world-famous tourist destination because of its three cultural heritages in the world.DongBa culture has also attracted great attention from scholars all over the world.
DongBa culture is a religious culture that believes in animism.DongBa Master is the main inheritor of DongBa culture and is known as the "wise man".My master is DongBa Master, and I am the only female descendant of Dongba culture.
The core wisdom of DongBa culture is embodied in three aspects: First, Harmony between Man and Nature.It means that man and the universe are one.We should respect and care for nature and learn to live in harmony with it.Second, respect nature and love life.Third, “Tao” follows nature.It means that everything works by the rules of nature.Including the Tao of nature, the Tao of society, the Tao of man and the Tao of the universe.
3.How can the humanity be more compassionate towards the world?
Lan Xin: Human compassion for the world depends on the spiritual level of each individual.Regardless of race, nation and country, human beings are a community.Whatever happens to others, may happen to us.If everyone has empathy, empathizes with the suffering of others, and treats them with compassion,then happiness will be treated with compassion.On the contrary, how can we expect mercy from others?
In fact, love have no bounds.If you would be treated kindly by the world, be kind to all; If you want to meet the person you want to be, let compassion and great love live in your heart first.
4.You are writing about the wisdom of love; how did your mindfulness journey start and how did you progress? Would you share with us your current state of mindfulness?
Lan Xin: Since I was born, a lot of amazing things have happened in my life, all about love.These amazing things and meetings have brought me to a rapid pace of comprehension and awareness.At the same time, I write short articles to readers every day through the online platform, reading millions, sometimes tens of millions.My readers and I have never met, but through my words and photos alone, they are keenly aware of the love and compassion that my heart wants to convey to them.
All these contributed to my gradually finding my own mission.Finally, one day, I had a magical body proof, instant proof to realize their mission.
I was born with extrasensory.Later, through deep study of traditional Chinese culture: Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism, I combined these strengths and realized that the core of all religions is love, and love is the highest wisdom above any religion.
Life is a process of finding and becoming yourself.In this process, I grow up from the "ego" to the "superego".Now I have no boundaries in heart, mind and love.
5.At a time when the apocalyptic movies suddenly look so real, In your previous article you wrote: "Natural and man-made disasters are warnings that suggest something to the humanity.” What do you reckon might happen unless people do not take heed to such warnings?
Lan Xin: Human beings always think that those disaster movies have nothing to do with us and won't happen to us.And this outbreak has brought humanity into the midst of an unprecedented disaster movie.We are all part of it.All things are one, man and nature, man and heaven and earth should coexist harmoniously.If people ignore the warnings, disasters will continue and even spread, and mankind will remain in a precarious situation of insecurity and instability.
6.Looking at this global incident from the standpoint of “All things have a soul”, is it a conflict between nature and man? Could we call it a clash between souls? How could a unity be achieved?
Lan Xin: As the core wisdom of "DongBa culture" mentioned above says, "Everything has spirit".All beings are equal.When human beings overdo, destroy and injure nature, conflicts are bound to occur.This outbreak is nature's wake-up call to humanity.It's not just conflict between souls, it's conflict between lives, a conflict between dimensions.
Human beings should reflect in the midst of disasters.Only relying each other, and respecting each other, we can live in harmony and tranquility.
7.Can people still find heaven on earth while the world is in such turmoil? If “yes”, then how? If “no”, then why not?
Lan Xin: In fact, whether human beings can find paradise on earth depends on human beings.Natural and man-made disasters suggest that human beings should break away from evil, practice good, control greed, anger and delusion, cherish the present, be content with enough, and be tolerant to the world, so as to find a pure land of body and mind have a beautiful world.
8.How did the public psyche fare in the course of the epidemic? How did people get through the process？
Lan Xin: Like the people all over the world, Chinese people felt panic and worry when the epidemic first came.But as the epidemic has gradually been brought under control, people's hearts have been relaxed.The Chinese people have been very cooperative with the national advice on epidemic prevention and control, which is one of the reasons why the epidemic has been brought under control in China.
From psychological point of view, when people are in a privileged and comfortable environment, the heart is not easy to meet, blame.And when our life and health face sudden danger, suddenly realize that life is impermanent, everything is floating clouds, life, health and peace are the most important.We can't go out at home and suddenly realize how precious normal life is! How beautiful nature is! Sunshine, air and beautiful environment are gifts from nature! Before the epidemic, everyone thought a lot, and under the epidemic, to live has become the greatest wish of people at present!
9.And, how did you get through this process, what could you tell us about your self-isolation process, what things have you become more mindful about?
Lan Xin: At the height of the epidemic, Like all Chinese people, I was quarantined at home.I wrote at home.Fortunately, e-commerce and logistics bring us great convenience and daily necessities can be purchased online.Maybe because I am writer, I have developed the habit of working on the computer and mobile phone, and also used to being alone.So I'm a little bit more used to it than some people.To my great touch, I have received greetings and concerns from friends of international writers from many countries.In particular, in February, Turkish international writer Nurduran Duman took into account that I could not go out to enjoy the beauty of spring, so he specially photographed many beautiful landscapes in Turkey for me to feel the beauty of spring.We met in China, then understood each other in the borderless exchange, she is very compassionate and wise! Our friendship proves that love knows no bounds.
In this process, I was constantly reflecting on myself and humanity.I cherish my life more, enjoy every moment more, cherish love between my family and friends more, and realize my mission more.
10.All this social distancing we have imposed on ourselves, which will likely continue for a while, is seeping all the way down into our neurons, how will love as we know it be restored or what will it turn into?
Lan Xin: People have two lives, one is the birth of the body, the other is the awakening of the soul.When we awaken, we begin to be truly alive.The epidemic has prompted us to become more aware of the wisdom of love—love is the best language of communication between human beings and the universe, love is the best way of integration between human beings and the universe, love is the highest wisdom of the universe, love is boundless, Love is the highest energy, love is the best healing, with love in mind, cherish the present, we will not afraid of the future.
11.How is the situation in China now?
Lan Xin:In the past few months, the epidemic situation in China has been basically brought under control.People have begun to return to normal life and work, and the tension in the whole society has been gradually calmed down.That’s the basic situation in China in the past few months.Regrettably, Recently，there have been repeated outbreaks in few cities due to imported cases from outside China.The country is taking strict control measures.We believe with unity,Chinese people will surely overcome the epidemic and return to normal life in the near future.
