    Elizabeth, Wonderful post. Harold Lamb introduced me to Ye Liu Chutsai ( Lamb’s spelling.) 22 years ago. I’ve always remembered him. Thank you for keeping him within public conciseness.

      Always glad to meet another lover of Yeh-Lu Ch’u Tsai (however spelled). A real hero…

    Your 3 steps for working with difficult people is well stated and priceless. Just imagine if humanity on a whole would embody this practice. Ours will be a world of compassionate strength, capacity and resilience~ Thank you for your clear sight and sound heart Elizabeth!

    Beautiful post Elizabeth. I loved the artwork as well. I commented on G+ about your reference to “spiritual integrity” – how refreshing to see that term used. I think so much of our conflicts is simply about the desire to be seen, to be recognized by the other. So often we are imprisoned in the “me first” mentality that we can’t extend the recognition to another first. I also enjoyed your reference to his syncretism of three faiths/belief systems- shouldn’t all authentic religions be “of common origin and benefit to mankind?” Thanks for sharing Elizabeth.

      Thanks so much Barb for your comment..Yes, it was actually during writing this post that I understood about the spiritual integrity part, and some other things I’ve tried to do without verbalizing exactly, or even written about in other places.
