Xiang, that means, to think. It is made up of two words, the heart (心), and an image (相) of our thought.
Have you ever wondered how we think?
You might have heard of this expression "use your brain to think!" and "a good hearted person". Who is the mastermind? The heart or the brain? Is the act of kindness or compassion directed by our heart or our mind?
The character Xiang tells us that we think with our heart. While we are thinking, whether we are aware of it or not, an image, or, impression will arise in our mind and as normal human beings, we will react to this image Therefore, we should always keep our heart pure. If we think of kindness, our speech and action will naturally be kind and peaceful. If we think of evil, they will be mean and nasty.
