During this month, people that I knew have died. Three weeks ago the godfather of my father died, one week ago the father of one of my best friends died, yesterday one of my uncles died. All of them were noble persons, gentlemen. They are no longer with us in this physical world, but their shared knowledge and spirit will remain in our hearts and minds, we pray for their soul, may they rest in peace.
"In Chinese painting, the color violet represents the harmony of the universe because it is a combination of red (yang) and blue (yin)."
"In Hindu tradition Violet is used to symbolically represent the Sahasrara, the seventh chakra. Sahasrara chakra symbolizes detachment from illusion; an essential element in obtaining higher consciousness of the truth that one is all and all is one. Often referred as thousand-petaled lotus, it is said to be the most subtle chakra in the system, relating to pure consciousness, and it is from this chakra that all the other chakras emanate. When a yogi is able to raise his or her kundalini, energy of consciousness, up to this point, the state of samadhi, or union with God, is experienced."
"In Hindu mythology it is considered that yellow has the power to influence the intellect."
"In Buddhism, yellow (actually, the color saffron) is commonly used in conjunction with red, orange , and brown by the monks. The Buddha wore yellow robes after Enlightenment."
Life is simple but we tend to complicate ourselves, enjoy everyday as if it was the last. Be kind and gentle, respect others, take care of the environment, learn as much as you can, do your best, never give up to difficult situations, share knowledge, smile and love!
