Red Tae Geuk 8 Pul-Jong Gon ‘Earth’ 8
Gon is last of the nature symbols. While the universe is the ultimate creative force, the earth is the ultimate receptive force, taking everything in, nurturing them and achieving great results through its nature rather than its effort. Gon teaches us to be receptive to the laws of heaven and nature, and to work with and through them, not against them.
