Tomare–the new peace sign for the 2010’s?!

How does a symbol become a universal symbol?

Like the peace sign and the smiley face.  How would one read a peace sign before having the knowledge that it is a peace sign.

If you don’t know Japanese what would this sign mean to you?

And if you know Japanese and know it is derived from a stop sign painted on the road for cars, could you look at it a-new, with fresh eyes, and see it as meaning START?

Stop and find your center.

Let your energy radiate out from your heart.

  1. To me it looks like a key of some sort (in fact a symbol like this showed up in a dream I had)! And it is a key … to living in the present moment … to living fully!
