Everything we see is a perspective, not necessarily the truth. All we do *has* to have a meaning and based on perspective, the interpretations are bound to change. We all have a different view on the world, objects, situations and even the meaning of words… Sometimes it's overwhelming and makes me question does everything have to have a meaning at all ?!
Koi is a beautiful word and may be so many different things. For me it is a 恋 - 'love' in Japanese. And the koi fish - a beautiful creature, originating from Japan. Feng shui says that having the spirit of the koi near you will attract good luck, fortune, and spiritual benefits. What a beautiful outlook!
