#50- MOST COMMON CHINESE WORD: 那(nà) Upanishads QUOTE

Stroke animation

那, pronounced as nà means “that/that one”. 7 strokes; 50th most common Chinese words. 

Simplified: 那

That One, though motionless, is swifter than the mind. The senses can never overtake It,
for It ever goes before. Though immovable, It travels faster than those who run. By It the
all-pervading air sustains all living beings”~IV.  The Upanishads

“The indefinite term ‘That‘ is used in Upanishads to designate the Invisible-Absolute, because no work or name can fully define It. A finite object, like a table or a tree, can be defined; but God, who is infinite and inbounded, cannot be expressed by finite language. Therefore the Rishis or Divine Seers, desirous not to limit the Unlimited, chose the indefinite term ‘That‘ to designate the Absolute.

Inner Earth – Message of Forgiveness

Though this may be a truth for me as I saw it in my #vision, kind of like closing my eyes, and in the inner realm seeing a movie playing on its own with me as its viewer. It’s also a creative writing which ever adds value to the peace of mind and not disturbs it. For this may make sense in the past or in the future as I come to understand that we are all traversing in the present sense of the parallel universes.

 

Inner Earth – Message of Forgiveness

 

When you love

Petals of roses swirl

Through the universe

 

We soar to the roof of galaxy

Gather speed to

crash through the inner earth

Where I need to see

For myself the validity

 

Our wings combined and

Inside the hollow earth splendor

Divine compassion surround

Immense with no bound

 

There preserved a facet of me

To be now returning to me

From the unity of consciousness

A gift of Forgiveness-

I asked without the ego

What’s there to forgive

 

For the personal and planets past

For the children men women killed

For the dolphins elephants hunt

Forgive

For the unjust words and actions

Forgive

For the present and future

Forgive

For there’s no selves

But God’s Love

For there’s no bodies

But ashes

To each their role

For us is to ask forgiveness

And to forgive

 

Race most kind

I’ve seen you with my inner eyes

I know for those that are ready

You will also lend a guiding light

Stroke animation

Simplified: 

 

 

 

 

What does it mean that hope is as hollow as fear?
Hope and fear are both phantoms
that arise from thinking of the self.
When we don’t see the self as self,
what do we have to fear?

See the world as your self.
Have faith in the way things are.
Love the world as your self;
then you can care for all things.”
