You will feel whole. You will gain insight. You will no longer be pulled in many directions, dissipating your power, but will move with clarity, and purpose. A unified self, in harmony with Time, Space and Energy.
The Six Wisdoms is are not only a universal truth in helping us see the different stages of reality and helping us in all aspects of our life, but a method to see how Wing Chun was create. By using, the Six Wisdoms we see that Wing Chun was create from the Principle / Faat level on up to the surface of tools and techniques. We cannot just create different techniques that connected to the principles, without knowing the principles and faat first. The Faat /Reality supports the principles, principles (Lei) support the concepts (Yi), concepts support the mechanics (Yin), thus the technique (Sik) is born. I personally use this understanding daily in my teaching and training methods and HIGHLY recommend this Book. I believe those that truly use and understand this teaching will fast track your Wing Chun understanding!

Terena Fugate "The Six Wisdom" written by Grand Master Benny Meng is an invaluable tool for self improvement and self discovery. Although associated with Martial Arts training, the information provided is not limited to those concepts. Rather, the practice and study of each "wisdom" brings the reader closer to self actualization, and provides them with the tools to discover their true self and potential. No matter how many times you read through the material you will learn something new about yourself that can help you achieve clarity in making decisions and choices in your everyday life."
In grade school we learn about the Scientific Method that scientists use to prove a whether a hypothesis is true or false. The Six Wisdom is the scientific method for life skills. If you want to learn how to make better decisions and discover what is true and what is false in your own life, it pays to learn about the Six Wisdom.
