HUI

HuiUmetfsm

 <huì> TO BE ABLE TO, a GATHERING, a POTENTIAL

 

Human beings  meet with nature (represented by a cloud ) and that forms a SKILL – people need to BE ABLE TO do stuff in order to survive in the wild.

But skills themselves aren’t enough. People need to GET TOGETHER, to MEET and share their skills.

In meeting of the Man and the Nature there is also a POTENTIAL – potential of a spiritual growth, when we realize that we are in mutual unity.

But man can remain in the nature just for a WHILE, because after that he needs to get back to the neo-liberal rat race.
