谜=言+辶+米
谜,隐言也。
人生充满谜团。人生就是在不断设“谜”和解“谜”的链条中走过。
设“谜”,让生活充满悬念、充满好奇,也充满诱惑。解谜的过程是人生奋斗的过程,每次解“谜”都会得到一次意外的收获,收获了人生的本领和乐趣。“谜面”和“谜底”是紧密相扣的,尽管扑朔迷离,总有蛛丝马迹可寻。民间解谜有很多办法:会意、反衬、借扣、溯源等等。人生的解谜也如此。
然而…当局者迷…

迷=辶+米
迷,惑也。
心中的梦想还要坚持吗?脚下的路还能继续走吗?所做的选择后悔了吗?未来的方向还看得见吗?……
如果你感到迷茫了,因为你进入了新环境、接受了新事物。这就是人生,穿越一个又一个迷茫的历程。
如此…
站在人生的米字路口,你知道自己该如何抉择吗?

米=丷+木
米,取其象形也。
Idea worth spreading
传播思想,分享生活。
如果人生多惑,这里并没有给出标准答案。它营造了这样一个场:思考的起点,被传递,并形成力量,奇妙的共振,最终让所有参与其中的个体,都成为这个场及它能量的一部分,
关于梦想、奋斗、抉择、活法,折射的是你我的成长,收获的是顿悟和力量。米粒之珠,不期与日月争辉,但求以莹莹之光,照亮前路。

既然 ,在生命的大电影里,很少人拥有出离的勇气,那不如就趁早相遇属于你的精彩。

Brain
Brain, a confined space yet breeds countless ideas. And the ideas diffuse like scattered rays in all directions, arousing recipients' emotional resonance. As a result, a seemingly fleeting idea generates growing influences, motivates unlimited potentials and becomes worth spreading.

Teaser
Teaser, a true depiction unfolds the various choices along one's life path. We are confused and ambivalent every time we stand at the crossroads on the way to the future. The life path with innumerable crossroads makes us suffer, but grow in the meanwhile.

Brainteaser
Brainteaser, an essential element reveals the nature of life. One's life can consist of infinite brainteasers, making life mysterious, with all kinds of encounters, the good and the bad. One's life itself can also be a brainteaser, making life attractive, with numerous possibilities. In any case, life encourages us to dig deeper.
