I used content from "Three Elements of the Self" in this blog: http://freddiesmodernkungfu.blogspot.com.au/2014/08/top-3-recommend-books.html


  1. Interesting stuff there Ben.

    I did at one point of my life decided to create my own logo/ symbol that represented myself. And the diagram you took is exactly what it looks like, with the equilateral triangle and a circle in the triangle. Unfortunately I couldn't understand why I drew the triangle and the circle as my symbol. So I just disregard that and decided to wait until I'm ready, meaning until I understand the art of using symbols and until my creativity is well developed, which I lack in. But since you posted this blog, the diagram you took and my logo that I had drawn in the past (which is exactly) now make sense. I can understand now, why I drew those shapes in the first place. I wasn't really thinking about what I was drawing in the past, I just drew whatever was on my mind and I tried to decode what I drew (but I failed to decode it).

    Now I'm going to use the information that you provided to create my own logo when I have time. I going to make it complex but not too.

    When I'm done I should post it on this blog.

    Thanks for sharing, it really helped me.

    1. I forgot to mentioned, sub-consciously I knew what I was drawing, but I wasn't conscious about it, I don't know f that makes sense.

    2. I understand what you're saying. It's like deep down you knew but you couldn't put your finger on it.
      I'm so happy to have helped you out Lxeon.

    3. I just finished drawing it, you can check it out on my youtube channel if you want.

    4. I saw it on your video. I must say, your drawing skills seem to be very good. If I were to draw that it would probably not look as neat. I also really love the over all concept of your logo, and the detailed complexity of the flower petals makes it all the more beautiful. Well done man!
