Proud to Be
I am proud to be a student of Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit of Malaysia, founder and leader of the Shaolin Wahnam Institute and Fourth Generation Successor of the Venerable Jiang Nan of the Southern Shaolin Monastery.
I am eternally grateful for the kindness, generosity, wisdom, compassion and guidance which flow into my life; it is all like a beautiful answer to a prayer that was murmured ages ago. I don't care if I'm labeled sycophantic. Call me simple-minded, call me subservient; I am proud to address our Master as "Sifu", especially now.
The Crucible of Leadership
Thank you to Charles Siheng for reproducing the moving account of our Siheng Wong Chun Nga, our Sifu's oldest son and senior student. I heard some wise man say that leadership is like a portrait, beautiful when looked at from the front...but when looking on the other reverse side all you see are nails and cardboard.
The Master leads us past pitfalls and obstacles on our (not his) path, and softens blows for us at his own expense. Before there was a trail, there was a thorn bush; before a bridge, an icy stream. Collectively and individually, our Sifu has given us unique healing, profound wisdom, precious forgiveness, and constant loving attention. He loves us like a father, and teaches us to love each other as brothers and sisters. Students are led by their teacher, and our Sifu leads by example.
My Life is of Magic
A beautiful life doesn't happen out of nothing. Extremely good luck, good health and spiritual blossoming are the effect; the connection to a special Master is the cause. "Required to respect the Master..." is neither mere formality nor cultural nuisance. There is a cause for all the beautiful things in my life.....brothers and sisters in the lives of all of us!
Put it in the newspaper, announce it on television: Even more than before, I am proud to be a student of Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit.
"Then how could chi kung overcome diseases where the cause is unknown or when there is no cure? The question is actually incorrect. The expressions "the cause is unknown" and "there is no cure" are applicable only in the Western medical paradigm. The expressions no longer hold true in the chi kung paradigm. In the chi kung paradigm the cause is known, and there is a cure." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit
