Watch the moon tonight, there are still a few days to see the full moon!" Since ancient times the Chinese have a close relationship with the moon. The regularity of the lunar cycle is always used as a calendar. Acute observations have been passed down for generations and treasured myths and stories. With the Sun's Companion and it is the expression of the soul of the individual.
The word for moon is 月亮 Yuèliàng, a lunar cycle is 一個月 Yī gè yuè “monthly.” In every-day language, many words are made up with the character 月 yuè: 月 票 Yuèpiào monthly bus or train ticket.月 薪 Yuèxīn monthly wage 月 曆 Yuèlì the calendar
The moon is the first celestial body we encounter after leaving the Earth. It is the closest to us but it is still “alien”. The light of the moon is inspiration to poets,
Qiānjiāng yǒu shuǐ qiānjiāng yuè
"The water of a thousand rivers reflect just as thousand moons ".
This is a proverb, which refers to the fact that a clear mind can be as brilliant as the light of the moon. It is a saying that refers to the fact that only when the mind is clear can discern and reflect the moon. The moon does not get wet, nor water is broken. Although its light is wide and big, the Moon is reflected in a puddle of an inch wide. The full moon and the entire sky are reflected in dew on the grass, or even a drop of water.
The mind can be misled. It can become blind and deaf if it does not see or hear through the heart. Only the heart is capable of loving and protecting. The mind can make us suffer without us realising if it is not connected to the heart. If it is in a state of unconsciousness, the mind can “lie” to us. If however the mind is clear, we are able to see past our misconceptions and prejudices, or even past our limits.
This leads to a deep understanding of ourselves and a deeper “consciousness” and we perceive the beautiful moon in our hearts, that each of us, in our own small, can reflect just as thousand moons on the waters.
