The Contemporary Application of Confucius’ Being Carefree
Inner Mongolia University of Science and Technology (Baotou, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China 014010
As can be observed from contemporary life, emotions like feeling distressed, anxious or stressful lasts through every stage in life. If these states of mind are not properly managed and regulated, they can lead to anxiety and other emotions, which greatly affect the well-being at all ages, thus spilling over from the individual to family well-being and then even to social harmony. According to research findings in psychology, negotiable views on fate are positively correlated with the perception of social adversity, the escape from psychological distress, and the attainment of happiness2. This paper argues that Confucius’ thoughts, words and deeds all embody the concept of negotiable fate. In addition, the excellent Chinese traditional culture also contains the wisdom of being carefree, helping people lead a life free from shame or fear due to their sticking to the moral standard and teachings. Confucius’ state of “no worries” is undoubtedly a contemporary remedy for confusion and anxiety.
