Ready to get your 心 blown? 

 You might be wondering, 

What’s that bucket with two handles that has a duck sticking out of it, and why should we blow up your bucket?


It will be blown, that’s for sure.

But I lied to you.

That’s not a bucket, that’s the Japanese symbol (Kanji) for the mind.

And I’m gonna give you some factoid-golden-smackeroos for you to thaw out and chew on.

Yesterday, after we put the firewood from my neighbor’s truck onto our yard (which we will cut up today), I listened to a spiritual video from a Hungarian farmer who lives in Japan.

He said that:

  • Everything has energy – your words, thoughts, and actions you take on your thoughts determine your mood, motivation, and willpower
  • There’s no way there isn’t a Higher Intelligence (God, Allah, Jahveh, the Creator, the Universe, whatever you want to call it). You just have to look at AHA! moments: Where do they come from? Probably not from a random neuron going around blitzing left-and-right and accidentally flaring up an electrical pathway to your brain…
  • Speaking about energy, even symbols as simple as a square, a circle, a triangle, or more complicated ones such as octagons (the one with eight corners) or the golden arches of McDonalds

I thought this was fascinating.

Not just because of the realization that this is true – but also because of the fact that this is probably what corporations use to make their products more appealing.

For example,

The logo of Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, TikTok, and all kinds of social media have been probably carefully designed to 

  1. make it more appealing to new users
  2. make it more appealing to existing users

Even our favorite chocolate brands probably use this to the fullest when designing their logos, advertisements, and products.

What should you take away from this?

Well, if you’re not a chocolate manufacturer or the next Mark Zuckerberg, then you probably don’t have much to take away.

Maybe some food for thought.
