When the ancients created Chinese characters, they included a lot of wisdom.
The Chinese character “明” consists of two parts: 日, means the sun, a day; 月, means the moon, a night.
“明“ has 4 meanings:
1. Tomorrow: A sun plus a moon, make up a new day.
2. Light: The sunlight after the dawn, the bright igniting the world.
3. Knowledge: Experience and understanding.
4. Wisdom: Experienced advanced knowledge and insights.
The ancients also had a theory of the unity of the universe, heaven and earth, sun and moon, and Yin and Yang.
The human body is a small universe. Outside the body is a large universe. When the universe’s Yin and Yang fields are balanced, the cosmic order is normal. The same is true for the human body. With a balance between the inside and outside, people are healthy and happy.
Making use of the environment, knowledge, and experience, mankind has developed science. The scientific inventions bring great convenience to human life.
Everything is relative, with advantages and disadvantages. Although the world is developed, the environment is polluted. To improve the environment, it has to start from purifying humans inside: the heart and mind.
Ancients also said: “Human nature is good at birth.”
