We are human beings so we can feel, eat, listen, touch, smell, talkand watch some objects around world.
So we can feel pain or pleasure through our body sensation fortunately.
If we were born as a wild flower, we cannot move, talk, listen, smell, feel, eat something around this world.
All nature is born as it is with wild sensation & intuition and they have never complain about their whole life.
In nature, I can feel so much energy inside of my mind naturally without words & thinking...just I can feel somthing in my mind.
I think that our spirit is very similar with all nature around us.
And just we have body and sensation with brain, so we tend to think too much sometimes in our mind.
After we born as a human beings, many things make me think and feel in my life.
Sometimes our mind & thoughts can disturb my way of thinking to live in this world.
But we cannot stop thinking every day.
If I were a wild flower, I can live easily and more simply than myself now.
But I am thankful for my life as human beings these days.
How is your life now??
Are you satisfied with your life as you wish when you were young??
What is your purpose in your life??
What can make you feel happy & content around you recently??
The end of last month, I have experienced so many lost & grief unexpectedly but now I can feel happiness of my life with DAVID.
And how to live with flexible mind is my important part of life because everything is changing every single moment.
"EVERYTHING is changing" as VIPASSANA MEDITATION teaching says, the truth of this world is that's all, I believe.
And maybe "DEATH" and "LIVE" are changing, too...so it means that between death & live is not existence because everything around us is changing even death and live, too.
So we can release all our worries and fears in our lives and just we need to enjoy TODAY's Blessing around us, I think.
Life is too short so we need to move on every single day as we hope.
Our future will decide our way of thinking so I want to think anything as positive as I wish...and it will make happen actually sooner or later, I know.
Today is the final day of WINTER in JAPAN and tomorrow will be new begging of spring.
Let's enjoy this end of winter season today to connect new spring with gratitude, shall we???^^
David really love to talk.
And sometimes he starts to talk to strangers in a shop or on the street suddenly.
I like to talk but not so often as David talk.
David tends to figure out of his thinking through his talking and I tend to think inside of myself more than talking to others.
Sometimes we can communicate each other well and sometimes we keep silence until we want to start talking.
But to communicate each other is very important to understand how we feel and think at that time.
So we try to communicate each other well as we can do.
Sometimes any words can not express my thinking because my emotion & thinking has not enough words to talk.
So I tend to wait until I can find better way of talking to express my heart better than now.
How is your communication??
Are you good at talking to express your heart??
Sometimes talking can make some misunderstanding each other because we have different way of taking some words to self.
But not to communicate can make more misunderstanding than less talking, so David & I try to communicate as much as possible not to misunderstand.
To be honest is essential to tell how I am thinking and how I feel to others, and it is the best way to understand others.
Sometimes to keep silence is good time to make our mind in peace and to figure out what I am thinking clearly.
To meditate can make us think & talk proper way with peace, I feel these days.
I hope that your communication can make someone's understanding more than before without misunderstanding.
I wish that your TODAY will be pleasure to communicate with others as well as possible!!^^
Cooking time can make me happy because I can use my intuition with my creative idea every day.
By David's great effort, I can cook all meals with delicious organic fruits & vegetable.
Usually, I don't cook all organic foods by too much arrangements.
Because all organic foods has so much taste naturally and I don't need to add so much flavor & seasoning.
How delicious when I just baked or steamed all organic vegetables without seasoning.
Sometimes I use a little salt to pull out of organic vegetables' sweetness inside so just I can use my imagination of arrangement & mixture.
David really love my cooking meals and I am so happy that he always gives me delicious smile when he eat my meals..
In return his effort and smile, I want to cook him today more than yesterday.
Every day I can enjoy my cooking to adjust our body & mind condition.
To eat every meal is like a routine but it can influence us a lot after long days.
Recently, David looks so happy when we eat together our dinner with smile & nice conversation.
Cooking is my expression of love and sharing with our dinner can make our love & relationship become better & deeper than ever.
To cooking with my creative idea is like an experimental way for me.
So only 1 time, I can cook my taste and it will never happen because I am changing every single day.
That's why we can enjoy our TODAY's dinner together as the first & final taste which we can experience in our marriage life.
Anyway to use my creativity for my cooking is my pleasure.
And I can get David's honest & pure impression of my cooking, so I want to cook better than before day by day.
I am so happy that I can cook organic foods as usual as my normal meals in Seattle.
And I am so thankful for David's great understanding how precious our meals can make our body & mind with love & smile.
I wish that your every meal can make you happy as much as possible to make your tomorrow's energy.
And I don't want to waste of all organic foods so I use all parts of organic vegetable as much as possible.^^
Last night, David & I went watch baseball game on Safeco field together.
Just one day before of yesterday, David's friend called him to give us free ticket the baseball game for free.
He has another plan last night so he couldn't use the ticket.
And he gave us his tickets for us with his love.
After I heard of his offer to us, I was not interested in it at all.
When I went to watch any baseball games in Japan, I couldn't enjoy at all.
To watch baseball game is not my hobby so I didn't want to go at first.
But after he came back to home last night, I changed my mind.
To go watching the baseball game with David will make him happy, I thought.
So we went to Safeco field together and we had a nice time together.
To know David's happy smile is my happiness, too.
So sometimes I can compromise to adjust his favorite way and it became a nice time for both of us.
There were many people at the Safeco fields and they looked happy to watch the baseball game on live.
The score was very behind but David & I really had a nice time together for free last night.^^
Recently David & I started to meditate every morning again.
And the time of meditation can bring us so much energy to let us calm & stable with confidence somehow.
I cannot explain how works the meditation's time for our body & mind with any words.
But day by day, as our meditation became deeper & better, we can feel so nice atmosphere inside our mind & heart clearer than before.
So we tried to keep our habit of meditation as long as possible and today we tried to meditate in the evening again.
Because we wanted to meditate at that time.
And it was good time for both of us and we felt nice atmosphere again to finish today with peace together.
Some research showed the effect of meditation that our brain can feel relaxation & keep our body healthy state not to get bad disease.
David & I are getting to meditate day by day and it became to our essential time of our daily life now.
Of course, we will keep trying to meditate every day like brushing teeth time usually.
And it will accumulate our great part of lifetime and anyway we can feel better inside of each heart.
Today, it was very nice weather with sunshine & blue sky after cloudy morning.
And spring will come soon with warmth soon, we can feel.
We found cherry blossom tree today on the way of driving fortunately.
Only 1 tree, we could watch lovely cherry blossom and we are looking forward to watching many them soon...^^
Today I took a walk in this afternoon.
In this morning, there were so many clouds in the sky but little by little SUN came out of the heavy clouds.
So I decided to take a walk to get some organic foods.
I checked one big supermarket but I couldn't find my favorite items there at all.
So I changed my mind to extend my waling course to check another organic shop.
But this was the first time to get there by walk and I was in lost in the middle of the way.
I found that I mistook a wrong direction and I quickly turned to back to the correct road.
And finally I arrived at a small organic shop but it seemed to close soon.
Because I found a note "All items are 30% OFF!" on the door of this shop.
Many products has already sold and there were so less items there and I started to check to get some organic foods.
This shop was very nice but normally organic products' prices are more expensive than other supermarkets.
So we didn't buy organic foods there so often.
I got some organic dried beans and their prices were quite cheap.
I asked the casher when this shop will close and why.
She told me. " We are closing in the end of this month...because we have no money."
This local organic supermarket was opened about 40 years ago but soon it will close unfortunately.
I was very sorry for this shop that long years' management became in financial difficulties...
I didn't have so much money today because I didn't know anything about this closing sale before leaving our home.
So I will try to get other items not to waste other items there before closing day.
Anyway, there were many big supermarkets (COSTCO etc.) are build recently and then small organic shops are influenced by them so much.
Business management looks very tough but sometimes we need to decide serious decision to survive.
Flexibly we have to make a choice how to live with each value and worth.
I am very happy that David & I have a common value in life mostly, of course we have some differences.
But usually we can discuss how to live together with healthy diet to eat organic foods as much as possible.
To make our immune system keep strong & tough is very important to live longer as long as possible.
So I want to cook for him to make our healthy state keep for better way.
Anyway, it is sometimes difficult that we have to live with adjustment of serious reality.
I was very lucky to get some nice organic dried beans with very cheap prices today.
At the same time, I realized how tough we are living in this economic world...
If you don't feel enough enrgy to work today with fatigue and less energy, how do you do that day??
Are you still going to keep working with hide your fatigue??
Or are you taking a holiday to take a rest enough to recover yourself from all fatigue???
Serious and most people tend to work with patient and effort somehow.
But I don't think it is not good idea.
You worth to love yourself more than other's need or expectation to work hard.
To take a rest enough to work againn is better choice , I believe.
You are not living for working , work may need to make your life to establish for proper way.
But sometimes you need to cherish yourself more than work.
To feel your body & mind how you want actually & turly is very important thing every day.
To be consious of your heart is very precious.
And if you feel any fatigue to work today, I recommend to take 1 more holiday for yourself as a emergency.
It's not be a lazy but to be yourself just 1 extra holiday, you worth to do that.
Only choice let you allow at anytime in front of you.
I hope you don't ignore your TRUE derise and hope.
And to take a extra holiday does not mean "escape" from work at all.
To be yourself by taking a enough time to recover from fatigue is fundation to live your life.
And to love your natural voice from your mind & body is sending some messages every single moment.
So just listen to it carefully ,please.
Because the voice is very minute & faint sense , so everyone needs to be careful to catch it !
I recommend it by ovserbation about your breath by YOGA or DETOX to notice it.
It is easy to find it naturally and clearly.
I hope you can feel enough energy without any fatigue today after waking up today.
And I wish you will have a great day today with smile & love as much as possilbe!
To live today and to concentrate at this present are importand to focus on my life.
Sometimes I plan to make my future happy later in the near future.
And sometimes I remind of my past to make use of my present thinking to go forwad for better way.
But normaly I try to focus on myself at this moment.
If I don't live at this moment, it is very waste of my life time...
Because every single moment is moving 1 second by 1 second , and my presnce keeps moving forward.
So maybe "PRESENCE"can say that it is not exist but changing....
I don't think that it taks for granted at all as TODAY and tomorrow come always.
"EVERYTHING IS GETTINNG BETTER AND BETTER."(あらゆることが、すべてより良い方向に向かっています。)
This strong message can give me a huge energy to feel as the message says.
And I try to say this message to myself evvery day with my breath.
Also with my each breath, I feel to come in good things by inhale and to go out by exhale...
My body, mind & soul keep changing every single breath even I can't notice the sensitive change inside my body.
All cells of my body happen something to renweal & verso-up for proper KEIKO as I AM...
How about you??
I think you are changing like I am.
After full moon DETOX, I cried a lot by deep hurt in my hidden place naturally.
To let my tears flow is better purification than hiding my true heart to myself.
So I don't to hesitate to cry in front of DAVID at all.
My tears tends to let him worry about me more but he accepts me always with generousity and kindnes with deep love.
His understanding & compasson with acceptance is very useful and helpful to know WHOLE KEIKO for both of us.
His LOVE can make me cry more and more and my tears also overflow my true heart how I feel and how I want to live from now on,,,,
Great effects of DETOX influence me and it gives me a lots of surprise and forturne meeting in this month.
I don't want to use my precious time not to waste at all.
And I feel so much energy inside that "KEIKO's mission" can wait to start little by little for next 3 month until the end of November....
Now I am 39 years old and I will be 40 in Novemeber soon.
For me , 39 means "Thank you" years to express my gratitude my precious people in my life.
And I want to welcome the next 40's generation to share my gratitude for others in return by my whole heart somehow.
Some nice project and great opportunity are waiting for us, I can tell.
And it makes my life excite and it will be my part of my lifework , for sure....It's my plesure!
I wish I can see my precious people in this world for next 3 months, just before my new age.
I will do my best TODAY and I can feel happy today, it means no regret today and to know my happiness forever.
I am so thankful for everything TODAY as it come in peace.
And I will start this NEW DAY with LOVE & SMILE as much as possible, sounds good??
I wish you will start your own TODAY with positive way naturally, because I know our way of thought make your reality as you think & image.
Let's start today with your hope & wish with gratitude as today exists itself, shall we???
I like this "Yogi tea " which blends organic herbal tea.
And each tea bag has a message on the tag.
Yesterday I got a message from this Yogi tea, it says...
"Life is a flow of love; your participation is required."
David & I liked it so much.
And sometimes we talked about this spiriutal message from the tea bag.
It insprires us in our mind usually as this tea knows about our life.
This Yogi tea has many kinds of blend of herbal tea and all the tastes are so nice.
To drink it & to enjoy the mssage are nice time for us.
David & I fel something surprisingly reality yesterday and we cried together.
But the reality doesn't change even we cry together or smile.
How to manage this reality and how to overcome this happening together are important without tears.
Just we realized how we love each other & our love doesn't change at all what will happen to us.
So I want to try this happening for our nice opportunity to overcome with David for next step.
The way of thinking is better than crying together.
Because our reality matters how to observe & to manage it together.
We cried again and our tears finished to overflow a little but the sorrow time was over.
To let ourselves down in sorrow is waste of time, because we are very happy together now.
I am very positive person and I want to find the positive side of any reality as well as possible.
In this morning, my eyelids are a little a swelling by tears but we could smile again with lots of tears together.
Just to be consious out happiness at this moment is preciours for us to concentrate our long life from now on...
I want to smile more than tears, and I want to see David's smile more and more.
How is your life??
I wish your life will be more smile than tears each day as much as possible.
Today is full moon day!!
And also , today is 13th on Friday, you know...
I wish you can enjoy this full moon day in June.
By the way, if you find that someone did unplesant things to you unexpectedly.
Maybe you will feel angey or hatred to them unconsiously.
But you don't need feel such a negative emotions inside of you.
Because others' any actions & words & behaviors are not your fault at all.
So I want to recommend you to use this way ot thougt if you happened to such unplesant things unexpectedly.
If a stranger visit you with unplesant souvenir for you but you don't need it, how do you respond his offer?
You don't need the souvenir at all so you can say ,"Please bring it back to yourself , because I don't need it."
This is an example story.
The souvenior is somebody's unpleasant attitude for you, and you don't need to take it at all.
Just you don't need accept other's negative energy and you can keep your heart in peace.
If you afford to feel the others some compassion with benevolence, you can worry about what is wrong with their heart.
Others' negative behaviors and words are not your responsibility.
So your heart doesn't need be hurted such a pitying aciton at all.
They want to hurt their own heart to act with negative mind not others.
Sometimes you may happen to such a unplesant thing , so please try to think this way of thought to keep your heart in peace.
It's very simple and easy wat to protect your precious heart.
Once you decide only to take in positive energy in your heart , all negative one isnn't needed for you at all.
I wish your heart can keep in peace always to feel your happiness every day...
