I was just thinking of you last night, I happened to reading a little of a favorite
Author on Ch'an and Zen Teachings Charles Luk (Lu K'uan Yu) works have most interesting commentary and explanations for a symbolic metaphoric graphical systems they have utilized in the East.
His "Taoist Yoga" has replete content of Alchemical Meditation technique with graphical symbolic representations. One is the well known "Uniting of the Sun and Moon" also seen in other systems like the western Alchemists.
In his rare three volume work "Ch'an and Zen Teachings" in the part dealing with the Ts'ao Tung Sect (Soto Zen) he publishes a most unique System that can easily remind one of the Eclipse Cycle of Astronomy which portray the conditions of "Host" and Guest" in their combinational condition of presences. The Sufi also use this same Symbolic System, and language intimate to Confucus and Mencias. (pages160-161) and the I Ching. On pages 127 the Five Glyph of the I Ching and the Symbols are shown that indicate:
Host -the real comprising the seeming
Host coming to light
Guest returning to Host
Host in host
These are also shown integrated together into a symbolic Dorge such as the Tibetan use on page 151, Volume Two of the Ch'an and Zen teachings.
I hope some day you will show some of the Art you Create incorporating the symbols on a web site we can visit.
