@jakebeamish Hi Jake, kuu ha raku no tane. I translate it as bitterness (kuu) is the seed（tane) of joy (raku). But raku is literally ease, or convenience.
Also kuu can be read as suffering and even suffocation, and the character for raku is used for fun and joy.
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
