September 1st - Chuan Zhang and Material Posessions

Daily Move ⚪ 日常的动作

Image from
穿掌 - chuān zhǎng - "Piercing Palm"
"With the palm face up and fingers pointing forward, thrust the palm across the body."

Possible Uses: Though Chuān zhǎng is more of a "Wushu"/performance move it does have its practical application. This move, using Spear hands to strike forward, can be found in Bruce Lee's interview! It is used to  gouge the eyes or hook into and rip the nose. There are many variations and movements that go with this and will be covered in later posts.

Daily Word ⚪ 日常的词

流利liú lì

Related Words:
语言 - yǔ yán - Language
学习 - xué xí - to study, to learn
读书 - dú shū - to read (a book), to go to school
句式 - jù shì - sentence structure

I chose this word as today when I was reading a short story from DuChinese it talked about being fluent in Chinese while in China. I also chose this word as its the goal of every language learner to become fluent in the language that they are studying. How will I become fluent if I can't even say fluent?

Daily Thought ⚪ 日常的想法

"While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal"

In various religions all around the world the goal is usually the same, to get closer to "nothingness" or closer to the spirit/God. If you read more of this verse you see that not only is the idea of this passage to focus on the spirit while realizing physical objects are temporary but it also explains how one should, "...renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully...", meaning one should be honest in all things, their word, their intentions and in their study of God.

A nice message to have on a Sunday morning.

What are you guys doing this relaxing Sunday morning?
