Today, I went to have a YOGA class of a fitness club.
And I enjoyed the Yoga class with comfortable relaxation and great feeling inside.
I was getting to ready for going outside after the Yoga class, my Japanese friend started to talk to me.
And another Japanese woman joined to talk with us and we started to talk each other in Japanese.
We shared with each body condition and each thinking a little, and the new Japanese woman suddenly confessed that she lost her husband last September.
I lost my closest uncle in Japan last year, and the other Japanese woman lost her friend of the fitness club last month.
So we understood how hard the woman felt so down after she lost her husband.
She tried to let us not worry about her too much, but her eyes were filled with tears.
I hugged her and I felt so sorry for her loss that nobody cannot stand the loss who really love in our life.
To be alive today is Blessing, I thought after we said "Good Bye" each other.
And today I am alive fortunately without accident and trouble.
I love David and David loves me, this is very miracle and very lucky for me.
So I want to cherish each day with gratitude and I want to be my best without regret when I die someday.
Today is only 1 day in my life and it will never come back.
Life is too short to look back, so shall we seize this day with love and gratitude as much as possible?^^
Today, it is the final day of 2017 and it will be new year tomorrow.
David went to work today and I went to a meeting in downtown Seattle to get ready for my Japanese class at a organic sushi restaurant in this morning,
The Japanese class will start next February but from last week, our staff meeting has started already.
It is a great opportunity to start my new job in Seattle and the meeting was so meaningful for me.
The meeting was not only meeting but also like a lecture of starting of business.
To set staff's mind up is the most important, so we shared with great time together.
I learned a lot today and I am so hopeful and positive our new Japanese class with wide view of my life.
And David came to pick me up there and we were so happy to get together.
David and I had a really great time together with Jacuzzi time of a fitness club and dinner time at our home with smile and love.
I cannot believe that tomorrow will be new year after some hours.
I can hear of the sound of fireworks to celebrate New Year but we will start to sleep as usual as we do.
We could look back this year with love and gratitude each other and we are very looking forward to welcoming New Year with hope and positive mind.
Today, we are so happy to be together and we will be happier tomorrow than today, for sure.
Each day, we will cherish our love and each existence and we will love more and deeper than before.
I am so thankful for David's love and his great care for me in this year.
Many things happened to us in this year but our love became much deeper and wider than before, we can feel.
To feel our love is very important of our marriage life and it is our basement.
And then, we can visualize our dream and future plan together and it will make happy sooner or later, I believe.
"Well-being" means to love each other more and then we can achieve each hope as we wish.
GOD is watching and protecting above us every day, so we need to focus on what we want to be as we are...
Anyway, I wish that your 2017 will end with hope and your 2018 will start with benevolence and peace as much as possible!!^^
Yesterday was a big event which David & attended relative's funeral service.
After we came back to home, I cooked for our dinner with peace & gratitude.
To lose someone in this world is sure of grief but we need to go on our life with smile & positive feeling because we are ALIVE today.
Anyway I just prayed for relative's soul in peace at the ceremony yesterday and I thought many things about life and death.
After funeral service, many people got together to talk with David & me.
Especially David's friends have not seen each other more than 10 years but they could recognize him with his smile and I introduce myself for all of them with shaking hands and talked a while.
Most his friends knows his childhood which I didn't know but they looked so happy to see both of us yesterday.
Many people has each own life now and David & I have unique life now, too.
And we had so many happenings last week that David & I faced on it together to survive with benevolence & peace as much as possible.
No one knows tomorrow's destiny so just I want to enjoy & cherish TODAY wish smile & love as I am.
Many people has sufferings & worries but we need to move on with compassion & hope.
And we don't know when we will die so just we need to focus on what we do today everything in front of us.
Just I appreciate with my life today with gratitude because I am happy with my healthy body & mind from my parents.
No one knows own destiny how to die someday in this world, it is beyond our power and understanding.
So just I want to seize TODAY as I am and it will connect myself tomorrow better than today, right??
I sent a message to my parents today about my thinking and gratitude after many happenings of last week.
My parents live together in Shizuoka city in JAPAN now and just I wish their peaceful life as long as possible.
We own nothing in this world before we born and we will own nothing when we die from this real world someday.
To experience of my life now will continue next my journey of spirit, I believe, so how do you want to live your life until your death??
Let's cherish our life today with gratitude & smile as much as possible, shall we??
Anyway...life is too short to look back so just keep moving on as we are!!
I wish that you life will be better today than yesterday and you can feel your happiness & peace in your heart today!!^^
Today is the 2nd day of 2017.
Yesterday, the 1st day of 2017 could make me feel something special to start new year.
But in the U.S.A., from today, everything has just started as usual.
In Japan, NEW YEAR is very special to gather family and to take a long holidays.
But in Seattle, I don't need so much special feeling about NEW YEAR because today is just normal day to begin usual life.
I want to cherish THIS DAY as special as I am because no one knows tomorrow's fate.
Many trouble and happenings has possibility to occur our life every single day.
So just I feel that TODAY is very special with Blessing and I don't feel it is for granted at all.
Just to seize the day as it is final day of my life, I can do my best as I am today.
Last year, my grandmother passed away and many precious friends got serious disease or death suddenly.
Every day I am doing my best to keep our lives long as much as possible by our vegetarian diet & meditation.
Also my YOGA life can help me a lot not only for body but also for mind to keep in peace.
And my healthy life style maybe a little unique more than normal people but I feel so much energy inside without too much eating foods every day.
Also to keep eating organic foods with gratitude can make our life with peaceful mind get great energy naturally.
How is your 2nd day of 2017??
After change of NEW YEAR, I hope that you will find your new goal or better passion to make your life use of in this world.
Like a wild flower, let's live our own life as we wish with passion & gratitude for this precious life on this earth, shall we??^^
Yesterday, I got a terrible new at Paris in France.
Some bombs hit many citizens by terrorist.
I thought whether my friends who live in Paris now are safe after the news.
I could know that they are safe through Facebook and I felt relieved.
But many people in Paris felt shocked by these bombs and I felt something terrible inside.
Terrorist might want to show something by these bombs with their lives.
But the way to show their thoughts was totally wrong way.
Many citizens was taken away their precious lives suddenly and also terrorists passed away with their bombs.
All lives are important and nobody cannot deprive from other's life with any reasons.
And all energy of our lives had better to use positive way to live in peace.
To use each life for negative way is worthless and meaningless, I think.
The happening of some bombs at Paris didn't make better things at all.
Just they made tragedy, sorrow and misery for everyone.
Instead of hating each other, we had better to understand each difference to love more and better.
Just I pray for better reincarnation of all victims' soul in peace...
Why do people pray?
And to what do many people pray ??
What is GOD ??
I don't know indetail but I have my faith to pary.
To pray for something HUGE existence which made this univerese, maybe it is called by "GOD".
But for me, "GOD" is not pariticular religion at all.
How about you??
And why you are praying in silence with your eyes closed??
In Japan, to pray in front of shrines & temples are tradition somehow.
And sometimes I will pray for them but my prayer is always simple and same.
“To be happy always in peace for all beings in this universe.”
Of course, I am the part of beings, so I can pray not only for myaself but also for all my precious beings together.
And I learned Vipassana Meditation before.
The teaching of it can let me help how to live with YOGA.... A LOT.
Sometimes I recommend to my precious friens & folks to take part in this course as you want at anytime.
Only 10nights and 11 days of this full course for the first time and it is free.
This organizasion is based on Donation of all over the world..
And fundamental way of thought & simple tool of Metitasion in life let me make my CORE in my life.
Of course daily life of Meditation time let me be in peace & stable day by day.
Meditation time is not different from PRAYER time but it may be similar for someone.
Or it is complete different type & time for others, it is O.K. for each understanding... I think.
Anyway to pray or to meditate in silence with eyes closed to connect myself and something of universe, I can feel.
And I just feel content & satisfaciton after prayer & meditation time with peaceful state.
To start your TODAY is very important time, I think.
To pray or to meditate for the begging of your day is preciuos part of your time, I guess.
So I am keeping my daily habit with YOGA as much as possible...
How do you start TODAY??
I wish you can start of your NEW DAY today for your peaceful mind as much as possible, it is my wish!!
If many people can change to eating more vegetables & fruits without animal products, I guess less disease will become.
And it means less medicines and many doctors don't need to cure.
Of course it will be less hospital after that, everyone can feel healthy & happy more than now.
It is not easy for everyone that to buy organic foods to cook by self every day.
But if you can afford to buy organic foods as possible , I want to recommend it as soon as possible.
The influences of foods seems less than other materials but it can effect your body & mind slowly.
But for sure, organic foods & plenty of vegetables can heal yourself easily & make your body without disease.
DAVID gives me his change of mind & body recently after his eating foods of my cooking.
I just try to cook for own style based on Macrobiotics with organic foods every day.
But he can feel lots of energy without any fatigue and his skin became more clear than before.
He tells me his honest response every day & always gives me reaction to express his comfortable state now.
And I realized how great all organic foods has for human beings to keep self comfortable & happy.
To change of eating style by self can change the terrible circulation.
For example,to eat fast foods and to gain weight , and then many body's problem occur...like high blood pressure , fatness and diabetes etc.
And disease need more medicines and to check the body condition or treat some problems of body at hospitals continually.
So I am thinking a nice suggestion that to cut this worse circulations is better to change every meal as possible.
It can gives you a great effects & comfortable influences later, not soon.
Agriculture is needed to change the thought to cultivate vegetables not the quantity but quality.
But it's not difficult way, I believe it.
Because little by little, population of vegetarians is increasing.
It's a wonderful change and I wish it can keep on more in this whole world.
What you eat makes your body & mind ,you know...so I want to choice proper foods to make it better way than before.
To make self by foods looks like a experiment and it is fun for me.
So what will you eat today for yourself??
