One of my goals and dreams is to be a person who reacts first--to any situation--with love. So whenever a book comes along that teaches basic concepts to guide me along this path, I jump at the chance to read it. GREATEST LOVE, by Dr. & Master Zhi Gang Sha and co-authors, Master Mackie and Master Quintero, is a pocket-sized book with nuggets of truth, which can transform lives when practiced regularly. As with Master Sha's previous book, SOUL OVER MATTER, this book also contains quite a bit of repetition and translation. However, with GREATEST LOVE, I began to recognize the value of the repetition as almost a form of meditation and acceptance. I'm not quite sure I grasp the necessity of the constant translation of words from "ancient Chinese wisdom" into English. I understand there are different frequencies associated with different words chanted, but I would think that the energy behind the message would be equivalent no matter the language. With that said, I found it fascinating to read about and even master the various phrases. Another item I found more interesting in this book than his other book I've read is the concept of tracing calligraphy. In GREATEST LOVE, Master Sha relates the practice of tracing to tai chi, which utilizes the forces of tai ji--the ying and yang behind the movements. He writes, "Millions of people worldwide practice the sacred ancient movement and wisdom of tai ji to benefit their health and for stress reduction, longevity, and more" (page 44). That was an "a-ha" moment for me while reading. "You are what you think," is a common phrase heard in the United States, and Master Sha writes, "What you chant is what you become" (page 11). He recommends keeping the chant "Da Ai" in our foremost thoughts. Da Ai means greatest love. Master Sha teaches within this small book, GREATEST LOVE, techniques for creating amazing transformations within our lives by tapping into the energy of love.
