Ken says:
Tell you something interesting— the Chinese character “HATE” (恨 hèn) has the heart prefix and GEN suffix.

Ken says:
Heart prefix means heart or “thought”, GEN suffix as in the Gen trigram, which means stagnation or stopped. When you hate, your heart stops.

Ken says:
When you kick away the heart prefix, then you stop hating! The word is no longer “hate”.

Friend says:
Interesting.

Friend says:
Stopping the heart

Friend says:
Pretty much correct

Friend says:
Actually westerners talk about mind. Easterners talk about xin or heart.  But they are talking about the same thing.

Ken says:
Yes.

Friend says:
In the end, it is neither.

Friend says:
Because mind is associated with brain. Heart is associated with feelings and the physical heart.

Friend says:
The thing that is discussed is actually a formless thing, almost like a ghost or water.

Friend says:
Water has no form until you put it in a container.

Friend says:
Same with conscious awareness.

Friend says:
Enlightenment simply means free– not attached to the container.

Friend says:
That’s why Lao Zi talks about behaving like water.

Ken says:
Bruce Lee liked to say something similar, “Open your mind, be water, be formless, be shapeless. If water is poured into a cup, it has the shape of a cup. If water is poured into a teapot, it has the shape of a teapot.”
