1 Corinthians 12:21-26 
21 The eye cannot say to the hand,
“I don’t need you!”
And the head cannot say to the feet,
“I don’t need you!”
22 On the contrary,
those parts of the body
that seem to be weaker are indispensable,
23 and the parts that we think are less honorable
we treat with special honor.
And the parts that are unpresentable
are treated with special modesty,
24 while our presentable parts need no special treatment.
But God has put the body together,
giving greater honor to the parts that lacked it,
25 so that there should be no division in the body,
but that its parts should have equal concern for each other.
26 If one part suffers,
every part suffers with it;
if one part is honored,
every part rejoices with it.

Thank you Mom and Daddy.

I am fine.

I accept. 

I rise in honor of you –

ORANGE:

culture, associations and symbolism

wikipedia
 
 
 

China

In Confucianism, the religion and philosophy of ancient China, 

orange was the color of transformation. 

In China and India, the colour took its name not from the orange fruit, 

but from saffron, the finest and most expensive dye in Asia.

 According to Confucianism, existence was governed

by the interaction of the male active principle,

 the yang, and the female passive principle, the yin

 Yellow was the colour of perfection and nobility;

red was the colour of happiness and power.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Yellow and red

were compared to

light

 and

 fire,

 spirituality

 and

 sensuality

seemingly opposite

but

really complementary.

 Out of the interaction between the two came

orange,

 the color of transformation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hinduism and Buddhism

A wide variety of colours,

ranging from a slightly orange yellow

to a deep orange red, all simply called  saffron, 

are closely associated with Hinduism and Buddhism, 

and are commonly worn by monks and holy men across Asia.

In Hinduism, the divinity Krishna  is commonly portrayed dressed

in yellow or yellow orange. 

Yellow and saffron are also the colours worn by sadhu,

or wandering holy men in India.

 

 

 

 

 

 

In Buddhism,

orange was the color of illumination

AND

the highest state of perfection.
