Confucius:
 “I
 wish
 to
 speak
 no
 more.”
 

 


  The
 Eastern
 Zhou
 period
 in
 ancient
 China
 was
 characterized
 by
 the
 political
  fragmentation
 of
 its
 land
 and
 the
 moral
 crisis
 within
 its
 citizens.
 
 It
 was
 a
 time
 of
  huge
 disorder
 where
 traditional
 Chinese
 values
 saw
 a
 rapid
 decline.
 
 The
 glory
 of
 the
  past
 and
 the
 unification
 of
 the
 states
 into
 one
 China
 ‘all
 under
 heaven’
 were
 sought
  by
 both
 Confucius
 and
 society
 as
 a
 whole.
 
 He
 became
 a
 teacher,
 whose
 discussions
  revealed
 his
 views
 on
 a
 new
 social
 order
 and
 a
 transmission
 of
 the
 traditional
  Chinese
 values
 that
 were
 lost.
 
 Although
 they
 pertained
 to
 humanistic
 philosophy,
  some
 of
 his
 statements
 concerned
 spiritual
 concepts,
 such
 as
 heaven.
 
 In
 one
 famous
  passage
 from
 The
 Analects,
 Confucius
 mentions
 heaven
 in
 regards
 to
 the
 changing
 of
  the
 seasons
 and
 creatures
 being
 born.
 
 Although
 this
 seems
 conflicting
 with
 his
  previous
 ideas,
 the
 underlying
 messages
 suggest
 otherwise.
 
 There
 is
 an
 essential
  concept
 throughout
 The
 Analects
 called
 Dao,
 or
 ‘the
 way’.
 This
 Dao
 philosophy,
 I
  believe,
 is
 the
 message
 behind
 Confucius’s
 statement
 about
 heaven.
  Before
 the
 instability
 and
 moral
 crisis
 of
 the
 Eastern
 Zhou,
 ancient
 China
 had
