It is a common motivation of most living creatures to want to be comfortable. The Chinese character for “comfort”, 舒, depicts the character 舍(Shě) on the left side of the pictograph, which means “to give up, or abandon.” On the right side is the character 予(Yǔ), meaning, “to be bestowed.” The word “comfort” in literal translation means that when one gives up self-serving pursuits and seeking to gratify one’s self, s/he finds peace of mind and comfort. Through the temporary discomforts of releasing, we are brought the support of comfort and renewal.

“Take a step backward, and the ocean and sky will open up to you.” Let go of self-oriented desires and find unexpected treasures.
