Talents are best nurtured in solitude: character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world. (Goethe)

Stubborness does have its helpful features. You always know what you are going to be thinking tomorrow. (G.Beaman)

I would be true, for there are those who trust me;
I would be pure, for there are those who care;
I would be strong, for there is much to suffer;
I would be brave, for there is much to dare.

(Howard A. Walter)

Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom.
Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.
If you realize that you have enough; you are truly rich.

(Tao Te Ching)

ahhhhhhhh and I wish you enough in return Smile
No reason for you to forget that now...lol!!! Slurp enough....lol!!
A cup can be a symbol for so many things....just think about it. A cup could be a person who gives, drink from my strength. Or it could be a person who needs to be filled with love, life and joy.(half empty, half full?)
I know you can come up with some better ones than this.
How do you see a cup?

Very good question... they symbology of a cup.

First thought that comes to mind for me is the symbology of the cup in Tarot; the cup symbolizes water, emotions, pleasure, relationships, and the need to want more.

Then there's the half empty, half full spiritual symbology. If we see the cup as half empty, that could represent the emptiness that so many of us feel inside... that "something's missing" from out lives feeling. To the outside world, it may appear that we "have it all." However, to those who feel the emptiness, there's a feeling of wanting/needing more. The emptiness makes our soul feel wounded.

Also, and again seeing the cup as a spiritual/mystical symbol, in Feng Shui there is a remedy used as a "cure." It is believed that when a person is not well, he or she could have been affected by the Sha qi (harmful energy) coming through the front door or hanging around the bedroom, so a Calabash (which is a fruit with a very hard outer shell that was often used to hold water, or food) is recommended to be hung next to the front door or the bed to ward off the negative energy and improve one’s health.

And then there's the cup that mythologically belongs to all cultures and to all times - the Holy Grail. In one tradition, the Holy Grail is in the form of the bowl known as the Bowl of Light. As the [spiritual] story goes, at birth our bowl is pure and full of light and "without sin." Our bowl contains not only the light from the heavens that we were born with, but it also becomes the repository of our darkness (Yin and Yang - Dark and Light). This darkness is the negative behaviors of our life (our "sins," if you will) and the emotional content of those negative behaviors such as hate, anger and fear. The woundings of our lives, be they emotional, physical, mental or spiritual, create "stones" or a type of darkness that settles into our bowl [soul] of light, slowly concealing it.  The greater the negative energy the greater the darkness. The good news is that at any time our bowl may be metaphorically turned upside down to let our stones drop out.

Now that's WAY more than you wanted to hear about how I see a cup... Smile
