What is compassion??
To care for others is not EGO at all.
To think others' situation is important for me how to treat someone who needs my support with compassion.
If I were in another situation, I just could imagine how I feel and think.
But it is not exactly how other people feel and think as far as I imagine the situation.
So sometimes I can feel my worthless & useless for others support which I can do my best.
But to try doing my best as I am is very important for me with HOPE & benevolence always.
David & I are very similar but different from each other.
So we can support each other when I feel not good of myself, and I can support him when he feels not good of himself in return.
Compassion is very precious to care for people, David & I believe.
So just loving someone with unconditional love is great think which we can do now.
Day by day, everything is changing and it will not come back again.
So just I want to focus on what I can do today to myself & to others with peaceful mind...^^
When we get older than before, we got many opportunity to face on someone's DETAH unfortunately.
And we need to face on this grief with compassion because many people need friends' and family's support when one lost someone special.
When I was 20's, I was too desperate to live anymore in this world.
And I almost try to say goodby this world but I could get another chance to live after the WORST situation of life.
Now I am alive because of the process of my life anyhow and I am so thankful of my life NOW to survive my life with my strength and weakness.
I learned my weak point in my past and I met many people after my terrible past.
So I could met YOGA and DETOX, YOJOEN who worked for 5 years until my marriage.
Now I am so thankful for my life that I want to make use of myself for someone who really needs me.
And I am very HOPEFUL for everything around us, because GOD is always watching & protecting above us at any single moment.
To make some action with HOPE & positive thinking can make it happen sooner or later.
To believe or not is not my concern, because I believe my strong energy to pray & wish for my precious people's happiness & peace anyway.
I don't know what will happen to us but I never forget HOPE to survive this world.
How are you today???
Do you feel your HOPE inside of your heart??
If you are very difficult situation now, please hang in there to survive with HOPE & peace as much as possible.
Because it will never keep so long that you will survive anyhow, I just want to believe our STRENGTH with benevolence, anyway!!!^^
In this world, human relationship is very important for me.
Especially, my precious friend of mine are very important for my life in the past and also now!
Because great friendship can not buy by money and the true connection of heart can make my life so great & positive encouragement for my life.
In my life, I met so many friends with true & honest heart and I really love them.
Now I live in Seattle in the U.S.A., and I cannot see all of my friends in this world so often.
But when I remember them in my heart, I can feel so much energy to move on in my life anyway...
Sometimes, I checked some friends' activity through FACEBOOK and their life looks so great as they wish.
So I want to do my best like my friends do as best as they do now.
My friends' great passion and energy can make me give great encouragement with compassion.
After I moved into Seattle, I could meet someone special through David and other persons.
And all of my precious friends became my part of life now!
So I pray for their happy life with benevolence and smile as much as possible, also for all of my friends in this world!!
I really love all of my friends in this world to live their own life with peace & LOVE at their living place every day.
Because we don't know about what will happen tomorrow so just I want to cherish TODAY as best as I can...
Today is the NEW MOON day of this month in 2017!!
I can feel very fresh energy inside of my mind with great energy, how about you??
Have a great weekend of the end of this month!!^^
This year of 2017 started on last Sunday and today is first Saturday after new year.
So it means that 1 week has passed already today.
Today after our meditation in this morning, David & I could feel so much peace and calm inside of each heart naturally.
Sometimes many thought popped up to our minds during our meditation but today we could concentrate to meditate deeper than usual.
Today it will snow in this evening...the weather forecast says to us.
So it is very very cold in this morning with clouds in the sky but my heart can feel so much peace & benevolence inside.
David and I could started TODAY with peace and stable mind and it is very important for us.
Because many things happen to us every day and it is like a drama for marriage couple.
But at anytime, we try to understand each other to share each feeling and thought as much as possible.
Last night, David looked enjoying my meals for dinner.
I made "Vegetable Quiche" to use my rice bread ban for David to surprise.
The day before yesterday, I tried to cook organic rice bread but it was not my ideal texture at all.
So I want to arrange the rest of rice bread ban and I made it for the base of quiche.
I spread all the rest of rice bread ban to the container of quiche as thin as possible and I baked it in the oven for a while.
And then I added some organic onion and some vegetables, brown rice and special source which I made with OMOCHI (rice cake in Japanese) like a cheese texture on the top.
David was very surprised how different texture of brown rice bread I made it into the base of vegetable quiche last night.
And we really had a nice time to share with delicious meal together.
To share with delicious dinner together every night can make our heart in peace to get closer naturally.
And after we meditation in this morning, we could have a wonderful feeling and our way of thinking can make our NEW DAY how to live today.
How is your new week of this year??
I wish that you have a great 1 week of NEW YEAR to connect with another week in this January.
Every day, many things will happen to your heart but I want everyone to feel peace & love inside of yourself as much as possible!!!^^
Yesterday and today, I want to focus on peaceful mind inside.
Something of my mind can influence of condition of heart usually.
And I want to feel better than before to keep my mind in peace especially in the end of year.
To connect NEW YEAR with peaceful mind is my precious part of life.
Only 1 day will change from tomorrow to next day of NEW YEAR but I can feel some difference from another day.
So I try to focus to keep my mind in peace without disturbing & worry about anything in my life.
And just I am doing my best as much as possible today, too.
Each day, I can feel something inside but I don't want to be overwhelmed anything around my world.
Not to make assumptions around my daily happenings is important for me.
Because everyone has different opinion & thinking each other.
ONLY benevolence can make my heart filled with peace & love deeply.
And we are existence of LOVE, I believe.
To love others and myself is my life mission to survive this world.
And to cherish my love inside is only what I can do in my life.
To love my life every single day can bring others' happiness naturally and this world will be better with LOVE, I believe.
Soon this year will finish but my LOVE and life will keep moving forward.
I have strong HOPE that NEW YEAR will be getting better day by day.
Because I believe in myself and our LOVE life will be better & deeper with each effort.
I just wish that everyone in this world will be happier and happier in a new year than this year.
Because we worth to feel happiness to cherish our life on this earth.
Someday we will die and it is not unavoidable after we were born.
Until my body's death, I want to cherish my life with benevolence & peace as well as possible.
No one knows tomorrow's destiny, it is up to GOD's Hand.
So just I want to do my best as much as possible as I AM today.
Please have a nice the end of 2016 and enjoy your fresh beginning of NEW YEAR soon...^^
May GOD BLESS YOU!
Today it is cold outside and the temperature was -1℃ in this morning.
But I have felt colder temperature yesterday so I felt not so cold outside today.
Today there is no snow but only icy on the road but the sky was so blue and beautiful with sunshine that I felt very clearness inside of my mind.
David and I started to walk as usual but his mind was caught his business world in the beginning of our walking.
His mind looked out of this beautiful world and he looked not enjoying this clear blue sky and warm sunshine at all.
But I just let David's mind go as he felt and just we kept walking together.
Whenever I tried to talk to him during our walking time, his reply was not clear and vivid so just I observed him with benevolence & smile.
Before our walking in this morning, I started to meditate but David could not to join our meditation time because he couldn't concentrate because of his business issue at that time.
So I did my meditation as usual as we do so just I am worried about David's mind of peace.
By YOGA & meditation, I can feel myself in peace & gratitude every single day and this routine can help my mind in peace & stable...A LOT!
Without my routine, I don't feel good begging of my NEW DAY so I wanted to recommend David by doing his own routine to keep his mind in peace & calm.
Especially today, he looked to need meditation but he skipped it.
But everything is his choice every day, so I have no judgement & no complains about his behavior at all.
Because I can understand his situation right now and just I focus on my consciousness in peace of own mind as well as possible.
Anyway our mind and heart tend to jump in the past & future all the time and our mind can be influenced by everything around us after we wake up every morning.
So it is normal mind's working so my YOGA & Meditation can give me time for my mind to take a rest & space for a while.
I am so thankful for today's beautiful sky & sunshine very much because it is very cold winter in Seattle.
But warm sunshine & clear sky can give me so much clear energy & great atmosphere inside my mind naturally and I really appreciate everything around me today...
I wish that your NEW DAY will be Blessed with pure & clear heart as well as possible!!^^
Today is 18th of December so only 2 weeks remain in 2016...so let's cherish each day in this year with smile & love!!
If I can not feel my stable & peaceful mind inside, I cannot feel anything good to live TODAY.
Sometimes David & I feel bad feeling each other but I tried to keep away from the negative energy by my breathing exercise.
We have some misunderstanding each other sometimes but we don't have no intention to hurt each heart at all.
So I try to let all my negative feeling & thought go for SKY and I pray for coming bock to our peaceful status for each of heat.
I can only recover myself to remove my negative feeling without someone's help or message.
And I don't take any bad things as personal things as my fault.
Some parts of my bad behavior or words can disturb someone's good energy but I have no idea how happens inside others' heart.
So only I can save my heart by releasing my guilty feelings & negative thinking not to hurt myself anymore.
Because only one who can hurt myself is my way of thinking and I don't want to hurt myself but to love more.
So just I learn how to recover myself with peace & love as soon as possible.
Not to take any negative feeling & energy is my way of step to move forward to live happily.
If you want to love yourself more please take anything as a personal things as you feel & think.
So you can step out of your own misery drama in life and you can make yourself positive & happy way.
I believe that anyone want to live happily every single day.
But sometimes someone can not feel positive status if one's mind in CHAOS.
Only one can solve your bad situation is own way of thinking, I believe...
So I am doing my best as much as possible today, too....
I wish that all beings in this world can feel comfortable & peaceful mind today, too!!^^
After our Meditation time in every morning, we shared with each feeling & thought for a while.
Today, we had a time to take a walk after Meditation time so we shared each thinking during walking.
After we had experienced Vipassana Meditation 10 days course, we could share each thought about our Meditation time.
Especially we started to meditate each other in every morning, our mind became clearer & sharpener than before.
So we could converse with clear mind each other to start NEW DAY every day.
Meditation is not only sitting time but also gives us wonderful afford to think how we really want to be as we are.
David and I have many differences but mostly we have so much common thinking how to live from now on.
From the end of last month, our love & relationship became much better & deeper than before.
Eating organic foods and similar life style can make our love become deeper & closer naturally.
Especially our Meditation time & sharing dinner time are important for both of us.
And we can exchange each thinking & feeling with honesty & frankly attitude.
I don't know what is going on to our marriage life but it is sure that our love is growing up day by day....
To share with each feeling & thinking can make our relationship be positive & thoughtful understanding these days.
So I am so thankful that we really have each other and keep our love going forward every single day...^^
I wish that your life is filled with LOVE & gratitude around you to enjoy your own way of life.
BE HAPPY ALWAYS at anywhere in this world!!
Today, David went to see his closer friend to have a coffee in this morning.
Just he came back to home in Seattle from his trip of Europe and we are looking forward to seeing him to share with his trip.
But after I woke up that I have less energy to see his friend in this trip because of the heaviest day of my period so I let him go to enjoy MENS' time.
So I started to do my YOGA after taking a shower and I could feel much better than before.
Soon David came back to home with smile and he took a shower to get ready for his work.
Usually he takes a holiday on Sunday to enjoy his favorite football game but he decided to work because he took more holidays in this week already for "Thanksgiving".
So we started to meditate before his work and we started to share with each thought to start our TODAY.
After we shared with each different experience & thought in this morning, we could feel so much positive energy to live together again and again.
I cried (happy tears!!) because I was moved by his talking and I could feel so much better motivation to start with pure energy of benevolence.
David went to work outside and I started to work at home by clear mind.
Many things happened to our hearts from last week and today and everything is getting better and better actually.
And some struggle of each heart can resolve with honest & pure communication each other day by day.
Every single day is not the same of our marriage life, especially in this month.
And we are going forward as we wish and our common part of loving each other.
How wonderful we share each other right now.
And we are thankful for TODAY's great start with LOVE & SMILE to cherish TODAY with love.
Anyway today is only this day and it will never come back.
So I want to cherish this day as much as I can do for us with LOVE always....^^
Today David got a call from his fiend who lives in L.A.
His friend told David that their common friend has a stroke and he is in the hospital now.
He became so depressed and worried about him but I had no idea what to do.
I have never met David's friend who is in the hospital now and I didn't know about him at all.
David seemed to see him but I felt that he had what he really need to concentrate now.
He is influenced by his friend's situation but I cannot do anything about it.
If my closer friend would face emergency situation, how could I do??
Just what I could do is praying for her (or her) peace in mind from Seattle....is it too cold attitude for friends??
To be influenced by someone's disease or emergency is not good for me, I think.
Just to focus what I need to do right now here is the very important and they we can thing about our friends, I think.
I can do for David is only making nice meals to cheer him up as much as possible.
Because I cannot feel as same as David feels about his friend because I don't know anything about him at all...
Just I pray for his recovery and his mind in peace in the hospital.
Because no one can change someone's life & destiny, NEVER.
Just we can pray for our precious friends' in peace of mind as much as possible, I think today like this.
