For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community. This website is maintained sporadically, people may still join and membership is still open, but if you are a spammer, stay away. The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date. There are plans to make it more useful for static information in the future. If anyone needs information about Changchun or China, you may post a message and it probably will get a response but not immediately.

The Doctrine of the mean,just reading these words following is enough.

What Heaven has conferred is called The Nature; an accordance with this nature is
called The Path of duty; the regulation of this path is called Instruction.
The path may not be left for an instant. If it could be left, it would not be the path. On
this account, the superior man does not wait till he sees things, to be cautious, nor
till he hears things, to be apprehensive.
There is nothing more visible than what is secret, and nothing more manifest than
what is minute. Therefore the superior man is watchful over himself, when he is
While there are no stirrings of pleasure, anger, sorrow, or joy, the mind may be said
to be in the state of Equilibrium. When those feelings have been stirred, and they act
in their due degree, there ensues what may be called the state of Harmony. This
Equilibrium is the great root from which grow all the human actings in the world,
and this Harmony is the universal path which they all should pursue.
Let the states of equilibrium and harmony exist in perfection, and a happy order will
prevail throughout heaven and earth, and all things will be nourished and flourish.
