仁: Seed kernel; kindness and humanity💡🔑

To understand the mystery of Chinese characters is to understand the philosophy of life, then live a life with wisdom.

In “忠孝仁义礼智信”, “仁"basically means seed kernel; its extended meanings are kindness and humanity. It contains two characters. “人” stands for people, “二” means two.

Is it telling us: When people are together, kindness and humanity are as important as the kernel to a seed?

Checking it up in the dictionary, this character has a meaning under the morality category of modern society. It refers to being reasonable, docile, and able to think for others;

When using it in people relationships, it reflects mutual friendship, mutual assistance, and sympathy;

In the cause of careers or life purpose, it is reflecting the perspective of benefiting the society, not simply pursuing fame and fortune; through the cause, the heart of humanity is conveyed to every corner of the society.

Ancients took this personal quality as one of the most important essential moral spirits of a human. In the book “The Analects of Confucius”, it appears 109 times, indicating that “仁” occupies a very important position in Confucius’ ideological system.
