Hi. This is my first entry in the WordPress blog. Impressed with the ease, accessibility of the program. I just like that term ‘open source’….. ‘source’ is also the first word in many of the Chinese Yijing hexgram texts. The phrase many of you will know – if you have read my previous site is yuanheng lizhen… ‘Source of the blessings – favour devotion’. I have just re-translated this phrase – yuanheng lizhen 元亨,利貞,…”originating blessings – favour the steadfast opening of the heart”. The important points here are the personal identification of the phrase, and particularly the character zhen with the ‘opening of the heart’ – the Yijing is concerned about YOU, and how you interact with the world/other people. In fact, prefaced to my Tao Booklets translation I had the following poem – I accompany it with a picture, a village scene and study in light, for perusal. Good night..
