We come to this world and in pursuit of happiness.
Happiness is a feeling that includes satisfaction, bliss, devotion, joy, ease, etc..
What makes life happy?
Chuang-tzu said, "happiness is to live a real and free life." Maslow said, "Happiness is when the five levels of human needs are met." We live in a world where billions of individuals strive to achieve similar goals. Therefore, how do we manage the relationships with others nicely, and make ourselves satisfied at the same time?
The only solution is to have a pecfect mind.
What is a perfect mind? It is a mind that is aesthetic, creative, confident, and tolerant.
Childhood is the most important time for forming a perfect mind! The structure of a person's thinking is formed in childhood. What one goes through in their childhood plants a seed in their mind. This seed determines the way we live and whether we will be happy later on. Therefore, childhood is extremely significant for one’s life. The Angiosperm Theory of YMM is based on the construction of Perfection of one’s thinking structure.
Angiosperm Theory of YMM
In nature, plants have all sorts of ways to spread themselves. Spore plants are of the less efficient. Take dandelions for example, among the thousands of seeds that are spread by wind, only one or two may survive. They prosper only because they are huge in number. Gymnosperms, like nuts, are relatively superior. They have solid shells to cover themselves, but still, they may only survive when not eaten by animals. Angiosperms, on the other hand, are much more efficient: they have their seeds covered with layers of fruit, like peaches and apricots. When the fruit of a peach is finished by a monkey, the seed remains intact. Monkeys do move when they feed, therefore, the seeds are spread out. Angiosperm is the highest stage of plants- they satisfy others to live and prosper.
Inspired by nature, YMM formed its Angiosperm Theory of aesthetics education.
There are roots for every structure of our brains and bodies. They all come from the genes of our ancestors and these are what we call instincts. Instincts cannot be easily altered: they are like the seeds of angiosperms. Education, on the other hand, is the layer of fruit covering the seed. It contributes to the formations of one’s taste, capability, cultivation and self-confidence. Since we all live in societies, these characters help us to feel valuable and happy.
Taste——style＋interest——acquired through aesthetics education
Capability——intelligence＋innovation——acquired through creative practice
Cultivation——tolerance＋peace——acquired through multi-cultural experience
Self-confidence——fulfillment＋courage——acquired when the above are achieved
We believe, when one has not only aesthetic cultivation, ability to create and a tolerant altitude, but also natural instincts, courage and self-confidence, he or she is the most capable of achieving happiness. The core of our philosophy in cultivating the next generation is our Angiosperm Theory.
