Radical 01-1 日Rì, the sun
" Il sole è la sorgente della vita e illumina tutti i pianeti attorno. Nel nostro cuore essa risiede, come ne è verità dell’universo !!!"
Every Chinese character makes this a world of meanings, linked by analogy, enriched with different shades of reality that the symbol represents.
Through this sign, this design, 日Rì,, in which dash to the center is not rather be the centerpiece as the Sun in our hearts "solar" that pushes people towards something that feels spontaneously within him?
"A big circle with a dash in the middle represents the Sun. The dash may even indicate sunspots that were possibly discovered millenniums ago!" The 日Rì radical is represents the Sun, 日出 Richu "Sunrise" or
日落 Rìluò “ Sunset” 日出而作,日落而息 Rìchū érzuò, rìluò érxí " Work from dawn and rest at sunset ". Refers to the lifestyle of the people
who do not plan too much and accept what happens.
The same character is used in most of the words which mean "day, daily: “日常Rìcháng "daily"日子Rìzi " day," 日記 Rìjì "diary" 茍日新,日日新,又日新 Jì rì xīn, rì rì xīn, yòu rì xīn " Every day is a new day." There are only two days a year in which there's nothing you can do: one is called yesterday, the other is called tomorrow, so today is the right day to love, to believe, to do and, mainly, to live!
The ancient form of the character 日Rì is a circular symbol, a full circular motion, which is equivalent to one day, which means that each day follows another. This produces the idea of time and also because the sky moves with tireless force, the idea of energy lasting beyond time, a motor that never stops, as day follows day.
The Sun is the source of life, which any organism needs to live and a dynamic energy, capable of creating movement, heat, intensity and promote a significant phase of growth, expansion and affirmation.

Before the formation of heaven and Earth there was a State of fusion. Quiet and immaterial, it exists on its own and does not change; it circulates anywhere without tiring.
~ 25° chapter of the Book of Dao
( Tao Te Ching)
The Sun is the central core of the planet Earth. Surprisingly, science has discovered that the atomic structure is a miniature solar system. China understood thousands of years ago: the universe is the macrocosm, the human being is the microcosm. The human body has within itself the energy of the Earth and the sky, making it a microcosm of the world.
Simply speaking, the relationship between macrocosm and microcosm exists and you can perceive with the sixth sense, which is in
the center of our body.
“To be centred” means that one has reached an equilibrium. When one has found his or her Center, Qi harmonizes and if we let this divine energy flow freely, we can achieve the highest level of consciousness, we are able to transcend duality and separation between inside and outside,
microcosm and macrocosm and let things happen through
us and be "one" with the universe.
These fascinating and deep aspects in everyday experiences offer us
the wonderful opportunity of being of service and support to ourselves, experiencing the joy of being guardians of life, through real actions
to help others, they are an artistic expression of creativity.
