    If everything in life is measurable, then understanding destiny would be as simple as counting 1, 2, and 3.

    Hi Admin, Beefsteak,

    My desire to learn to read Chinese is basically self serving. My desire started after wanting to learn to speak after my first trip to China years ago. I down scaled and will be happy to just be able to read (dictionary in hand). Also to be able to read makes a vast pool of material finally available to me.

    Second I don't have the knowledge or skill to write a teaching book. Also I don't have the talent I think required to write a quality book, for whatever level of reader. As I translate stuff, if I think it will be helpful here, I will post.

    Finally, I would want to shout-out @trey. For me, I think he is the Gold standard with regards to translating CM text (that I have seen here so far). I have asked him privately and publicly to consider producing a book. ...But I think he has noodles of things to keep him occupied.

    All the best,

    ren

    PS: I think the TCM arena is will covered already.

    Hi Ren,

    It makes me happy to know that people appreciate my work. I enjoyed translating CM pieces. It's a never ending learning process. Besides Bazi, I learnt much about history, culture, philosophy and anthropology in general in the process of translating. The antiquity was a very fascinating world.

    It is definitely not easy to learn Chinese on your own, especially when you're not a native speaker and not being in the environment where you are forced to learn it. You've achieved something really incredible. Congratz!

    About the book, I am constantly thinking about it but since last year I've been constantly on the move. Now I'm working in Nicaragua and I have absolutely no idea how did i get here. Destiny is a real thing

    Have a great weekend! :) :)

    I am grateful and appreciative for every single member who have contributed to this forum. No contribution is too little nor should be judged by any "standard", whether "professional" or not.

    It's a collective effort of everyone. :)
    By people sharing knowledge/info publicly, the info itself does not devalue to become "common internet data which lacks credibility and needs verifying". If everyone thinks in this way, nobody would want to share anymore in order to protect the value and integrity of their knowledge.

    This is the Chinese dictionary that I used a lot. It is good for simple words and phrases.

    For more complex phrases and proverbs, I usually use this
