A plate or a bowl where food is put is called as a “Geu-reut” in Korean.

“Geu-reut” has a variety of names.

For example, we call it as “Bab (steamed rice) Geu-reut” if a bowl contains steamed rice which is the main staple for Koreans. If it holds soup (“Kook” in Korean), it is called as “Kook-Geu-reut.”¬†Likewise, if bread (“Bbang” in Korean) is on it, it is called as “Bbang Geu-reut.” And If spaghetti is on it, it becomes as “Spaghetti Geu-reut.”

In other words, the name of “Geu-reut” is used not by itself, but with the things which are put in/on it.

I think that human mind is much the same.

Everybody has a mind. However, depending upon what is held in it, its name will be different.

It would be a lot more pleasant to experience the minds of others filled with love, challenge, hope, and gentleness than those with hatred, renunciation, despair, and anxiety.

Clothes may be the same. Don’t you think so?

The same clothes may look different according to the ways they are worn.

I plan to spend this week with my mind trying to fill my precious customers’ clothes with spring splendor.

I wish that you will have a week with a “Geu-reut” which is overflowing with wonderful spring air.
