Rule is the defense of life

“Everyone has the rules, and this is the highest art in life.” This is actually the case. If a person is not restrained and supervised, his animal nature will burst out at any time and place, thereby hurting others and other things. Therefore, Mencius said, “Without rules, there is no way to make a round.” In fact, this is not deep enough. It should be said that without rules, it is difficult to be an adult. The so-called rules are the principles and bottom line of how we do things. Without them, the orderly life would be disrupted, and the ideals that could have been realized would be stranded and varied.

Therefore, the first thing everyone needs to do is to understand the rules and do things within the scope of their jurisdiction. This is like a train. You must travel on your own track in order to have your normal life and goals. Once you leave your own track, the result is self-evident. There is a popular saying now that life should have poetry and a distance, and a person who does not understand the rules will have an accident before reaching the poetry and a distance, and even forever say goodbye to all the good things in the future. Obviously, in this sense, to abide by rules is to protect, respect and elevate yourself.

“Three Kingdoms” records: Once, Cao Cao led his troops on an expedition. When passing by a field of wheat, he ordered no one to step on it, and the offender was cut, but his horse was shocked to step in. So he said, But taking the lead to destroy it, how can the three armies execute it? “Then he pulled out his sword and cut his hair. The ancients had their beards and hair cuts punished, and he punished himself, shaking the army, and making the army more disciplined. If he takes the lead to break the rules, then he will not be able to lay down his own country or become a big figure in history.

To be honest, good rules can indeed make people, and those who turn it into concrete actions have a strong character. Such is the case with Zhang Anshi, the Minister of the Western Han Dynasty recorded in “Zizhi Tongjian”. At that time, he had recommended a person to the court, and this person came to thank him, and he was very angry, thinking, “How can you thank someone for your talents?” Ever since this person broke. As a hero, although he has eaten thousands of households, he still wears a commoner’s cloth, so it is not difficult to understand his “no hope of gratitude”. It can be seen that he did what he was supposed to do, completely achieved aloofness, not even a word of thanks. This is his good rules, and in the process of implementing it, he obviously has a strong character throughout, otherwise, even the best rules will become a lie. And such a strong character often comes from a “superior heart,” Bi Shumin said, such a heart, “not necessarily gorgeous, but must be strong.”

Dou Yi, who is recorded in “A Chronicle of Economic Affairs,” has such a heart. That year, Zhao Kuangyin captured Luzhou, and Zhou Shizong sent a Hanlin bachelor Dou Yi to register the goods in Luzhou House. Zhao Kuangyin sent his cronies to collect the silk from the treasury. Dou Yi said: “When you first captured the city, it didn’t matter if you empty the storeroom. Now that you have registered it as an official object, you can’t take it without a book.” Zhao Kuangyin takes him seriously. And his heart is “superior”. Without such a heart, he will become very casual, not principled, and lose his rules and character.

“Everything in the world must be in accordance with certain rules and regulations,” said Leimont. Know that everything has its own rules, and once you break away or destroy it, it may have unexpected consequences for them. Therefore, the so-called “observance of the rules” refers to both our own rules and the rules that we should obey others and other things. Only in this way can we truly respect ourselves and others and prevent ourselves from overriding others and others. Above.

It can be seen that rules are the defense line of life. With it, those false, evil, and ugly things will be rejected from the heart, thereby preventing us from going astray.
