Three Powers

IMG_1727

 

As a child, my dad often told us that the Japanese were aware of three powers: the power of the sword, the jewel, and the mirror.

The sword symbolizes the power of weapons.

The jewel symbolizes the power of money.

The mirror symbolizes the power of self-knowledge. This self-knowledge. according to Japanese legend, was the most treasured of the three.

  1. Very insightful observation, thank you for sharing! Without the most treasured power of self-knowledge, we would not be able to properly handle the power of weapons and money. A valuable lesson for anyone in today’s society 😉
