After January in 2017, today it became February today!
And this month is shorter days of a month than other months in a year, so it will pass so fast...I guess.
Last month, David & I faced on someone's death unfortunately and we need to go on our marriage life with strength of each mind.
I have experienced some people's death in my life but I cannot get to used it with grief to lose their life.
But we have nothing own in our life both before we are born and after we pass away in this world.
So just I want to cherish TODAY as I can feel myself through my body because I am alive now!
Someday I will say goodbye for my life but I believe that my journey of spirit will go on forever.
And I am so thankful my life with DAVID because we have so much love each other with compassion & benevolence every single day.
Today during our meditation time, my idea of story about "LIFE" came up to my mind naturally.
Just I follow my feeling and thinking and I told DAVID about my whole story after meditation time.
David looked so surprised at my story that we could share with each thinking & feeling for a while.
We are doing our best as we are and our life is going forward as GOD's guide, we believe.
And just focus on what we need to do today can make our life better than before, for sure!
We have similar dream which we will make happen sooner or later and our marriage life connect with it.
And every single happenings of our marriage life can make us love & understanding each other to survive this world together.
Today it is so beautiful day with sunshine & blue sky and my mind is very clear with peace & love anyway.
To seize TODAY will make our tomorrow be better than today, I believe...
We are ALIVE so just I want to cherish each day until my body will not move anymore in this world.
How is your TODAY??
I wish that you will have a wonderful begging of FEB in 2017 with Blessing & smile as you wish.^^
What to eat today is our choice how to live with your body and mind.
Our body and mind are made by what we eat in our past.
And the foods' influence is very huge for me and it is like offering for my holy body and mind every day.
We tend to not to care our internal organ when we eat every meal usually.
Because our internal organ are working every day whenever you eat something.
So sometimes internal organ give us some emergent message by pain or disease suddenly.
But our body is very tough so sometimes we ignore the signal of body's alert.
I am very careful to eat something today.
And I don't want to eat too much to make my internal organs get fatigue so much.
So I try to eat something with chewing a lot to make my digestion system work easily.
Not to in hurry is very important when we eat something.
Because to eat something in hurry can make our internal organs so much burden to digest.
So what are you going to eat today??
And how do you care of your internal organ to live well at healthy condition of your body and mind today??
I wish that you can cafe for your internal organs when you eat something every day to live long with your body & mind as long as possible.
We don't know our limit of our lives and no one knows.
But I want you live longer as well as possible as you wish.
So let's eat healthy organic vegetables and fruits with gratitude today, shall we??
All of our foods are made by GOD and they are BLESSING for us, aren't they???^^
Every day, our mind is changing at every single moment.
And somethings can influence our minds unexpectedly but I want to try keeping in my mind with peace & benevolence.
So I start my day with YOGA, meditation and walking in the morning to keep my mind in peace as always as possible.
And all my routine can support me with peace and I can observe myself and around my world with calm condition fortunately.
Also my organic vegetarian diet can help my mind & body in peace with pure energy of foods, I believe.
This world has so many advertisements and stimulus that our mind tend to be influenced by their energy a lot sometimes.
But I really love to live simply with LESS materials which I have enough now.
So just I want to keep my mind in peace with calm as well as possible without influence of out side of CHAOS world.
Only what I know is "We are born with nothing and we will die without owning anything.", so to have something more is not so important for me that I survive this world.
If I can stabilize my mind with peace of inside, I can feel so much content with my peaceful noble silence.
Because ONLY GOD can watch and protect our lives and I have no worries about my life at all.
Not to chase so much materials can make me so be simple & satisfaction with everything which I have now.
To appreciate with my life is very precious for me every day because I am very happy today, too.
I have everything now and I don't want to get something anymore...how I can feel like this today??
I don't know but just I have strong faith of my mind about my value of life these days.
And I really appreciate with everything around me today and just I feel BLESSED by GOD.
How is your today??
Can you feel "Gratitude" for your life now??
So just let's keep moving forward as you wish and do our best, shall we??
GOD is always open to our life as we hope so just keep go on with truth and benevolence.^^
To live today better than yesterday is very important for me.
Because every day is different from yesterday and other days so just I want to do my best today better than before.
If I can do my best and I can feel better than yesterday, I can feel myself GOOD inside my mind.
To keep my mind in peace and benevolence can make me feel nice today.
After YOGA, meditation and walking in this morning, I can feel wonderful with my better mind than yesterday.
Today is 11th of Jan in this new year and already 1/3 of this month has already passed!!
How fast one day is passing by!!
After I wake up every morning until I sleep at night, I can feel the speed of the day's going on.
But I don't feel in hurry at all just I concentrate my day with my mind always.
For me, house working is my daily routine but I really love to do it by myself.
To support David at home is my pleasure and I will do something different from last year in this new year.
Little by little, I am thinking my new things to do in this year to make our marriage life get better than last year.
And it is my secret mission and I want to keep myself going forward as well as I can.
In this January, many things happen to us and every happening can make us learn how to live together day by day.
Just keep doing our best each day will let our life go better direction, I believe truly.
I believe that GOD will bless us always and I am so thankful for everything around us today...^^
Today is so beautiful day with blue sky & sunshine and this cold weather can make me feel pureness of my heart inside...^^
Have a great day wit smile & benevolence anyway...^^
After the end of 2016, the new year came us usual as the day turned out to 2017.
Only 1 day passed but NEW YEAR can make me feel refresh feeling to start NEW begging somehow.
Last year, David & I went to "Tsubaki Shrne" in Seattle to pray for NEW YEAR as Japanese do as tradition.
So we woke up earlier than usual to arrive there before many guests gather to the shrine.
In this morning, outside was snow on the road and David car has lots of ice & snow.
So David drove his car very carefully until our arrival at the shrine.
Many cars were on the road after accidents so our NEW YEAR has started with safe & slow driving.
After our prayer at the Shrine, we could feel so much great feeling and fresh mind each other.
This shrine located with nice river outside of city and we really love to visit for New Year's prayer together.
After our prayer, David and I visited his friend who works with his at his previous job.
David & I met his family for the first time and we really had a nice time to communicate each other.
Then we visited beach side on the way back to home and we took a walk on the beach side.
The sunshine came out of the dark could in the sky and we could feel so much HOPE & potential our NEW YEAR with pure and clear heart.
New year is just the day after the end of year and only 1 day has different as usual as day goes by.
But today we could feel totally different mind each other to start NEW YEAR with positive feeling A LOT!
Anyway we can keep going forward as we wish every single day so let's make our NEW YEAR the BEST in our marriage life together!
If we believe each love & faith inside deeply, we can do anything we wish now.
So just to keep doing our each best will make our wishes come true, I can feel it today!
How is your NEW YEAR??
I wish that you have a wonderful new begging of 2017with hope and LOVE inside of you as much as possible!!^^
Today is called "Black Friday" because after Thanksgiving day is for SHOPPING.
It looks like Japanese "New Year SALE" after new year's day for me.
But we woke up usual after long driving last night and we could feel a little fatigue because many things happened to us last a few days.
So we started to meditate for a while together to keep our mind clear & calm to start NEW DAY today.
After rain last night, sunshine came out of the sky and it is so beautiful day with clear blue sky today.
We don't need to get so much materials for shopping today like most people do so we started our day with our peaceful mind & love.
And my face was not look good but I felt silence in my mind with stable feeling.
So we have a nice time together with open heart how we feel now and today each other.
Day by day, our mind is changing right now and many things happen to us every single day.
But I like to cook as usual to my heart in peace with LOVE to adjust our body & mind to daily life.
Anyway how to eat to make our body & mind is up to our choice every day and it can help us to be clearer our mind to live together.
And to keep our healthy organic vegetarian diet are so wonderful for both of us to connect each other more than before!!^^
Every single happening can influence our mind & thought and we handle mange how to live together from now on.
We realized how BEST we are a TEAM to survive this world today and we are so thankful for TODAY's love and happiness.
Today's our dinner (for me, this is the only 1meal a day...so it is very important!) will can facilitate our body & mind to heal our fatigues to recover for tomorrow, for sure!
I enjoyed cooking by myself and it became "THE BEST" dinner for us today.
If someone brought you a gift which you really don't need now, how are you going to do the gift??
I would ask one, "Please bring it back to your home, because I don't need & want your gift at all."
This is the very smart way not to get unnecessary things from others.
In Vipassana Meditation, I could learn how to keep my mind in peace at anytime.
Maybe someone wants to give negative thought or minus feeling to you, but we don't need to get it to my heart at all.
The negative energy & minus feeling is not ours but theirs.
So just we need to focus on how I want to keep our mind in peace at anytime.
And someone's negative energy is theirs and we could to keep away from it with peaceful mind by ourselves.
And to keep away from negative energy can let us feel better than before because our way of thinking decide our way of feeling today.
I decide to live with positive & plus energy every day and I want to focus on myself in peace & good feeling as much as possible.
To start with Meditation & YOGA can help me to keep myself in peace & positive thinking.
And this power is huge and great influence of my life.
Because my good feelings is based on my way of thinking.
And to start with positive feeling in peace can make my TODAY be happy with peace.
I don't need to let myself down with someone's negative energy at all, it is waste of my energy.
To keep own mind in peace is each responsibility.
And only I can make my day in peace & positive feeling by my strong decision and faith, I believe.
Today it is a very wonderful weather with sunshine & clear blue sky.
I wish my heart can shine like today's sky with love & smile.^^
Because I decided to keep myself in peace & positive today, too!!
Today I got up as usual as I wake up in the morning.
Because I could sleep well & enough last night and my body could feel so wonderful to start with smile.
Last week, I got a sad news about my folks at Shizuoka city in Japan.
And my mind was stuck the sad news and my mind was not easy to feel peace & ease anyway.
I tended to think too much about it and I need to handle it by myself.
I am living at Seattle in the U.S.A to be with DAVID now.
And everything in JAPAN cannot control by myself and it beyond my wish.
Some of my friends & relatives gave me nice message to make me feel at ease not to think about the sad news here.
I decided to move to Seattle and MOM said to me, "Your choice of life is your way of life and don't worry too much anything in JAPAN."
I love my family in JAPAN and I wish everyone can live without disease & trouble in peace every day.
But sometimes sad happenings happen and I cannot avoid the reality.
ONLY GOD KNOWS all happenings' result and I need to mange myself to keep in peace.
To think too much is not good for me at all because it make me feel stress & frustration these days.
And I cannot make myself smile during my overthinking time.
So I need to release my concern about the sad news anymore and just I started to pray for it here in Seattle.
My prayer may not work for it but it doesn't matter for me at all.
Just to keep praying for my folks in Japan is my everything which I can do for it right now here.
After I decided how to handle my concern about it, I could feel better and sleep well last night.
I want to enjoy this day with smile and I don't need to make myself down all the time.
And only my way of thinking can make my day be happy and I like positive way to live with David.
Just I am doing my best and all I can do for it now.
Today is Vernal Equinox Day in a year and 23th of Mach will be full moon again.
Day by day I can feel the daylight longer than the day before.
And the warmth of spring has coming little by little.
Today is the new start for me on Monday.
And I have nice feeling after meditation & YOGA in this morning.
Something sad happened to me in JAPAN but it is beyond my ability to handle & mange it by myself in Seattle, U.S.A.
I chose to live in Seattle with DAVID after our marriage.
My MOM said to me, "You chose your life in the U.S.A., so if something bad will happen to us (MOM, DAD and grandmother), you
have nothing to do and be patient for future's unexpected happenings, O.K.??"
When I left my hometown of Shizuoka city in JAPAN, I don't know what the real meaning of MOM's words.
But now I can understand how she really want me to understand.
I have no power to handle & manage anything in JAPAN because it is too far for me to control them.
I feel useless & worthless for anything in JAPAN even it is like a emergency for me.
ONLY GOD KNOWS all the conclusion and I have to let everything go in my future.
And sometimes I need to release my attachments of my family & precious people in JAPAN because it is beyond a big pacific ocean.
I don't mean that I have to give up everything but that I need to be patient for something because I chose my life in Seattle, U.S.A... anyway. ><
To choose something means to release something on the other hand of myself.
Sometimes it seems too hard to release my attachments for something important but I need to be peaceful mind & calm of my heart with DAVID.
To meditate & do my YOGA in every morning can support me so well and my deep breath can help me a lot to feel myself easy.
Maybe I was thinking too much during my sleeping time about something in my mind but it is not good for myself at all.
To make myself feel at ease in peace is my lesson today.
I have something in my mind still now but I need to focus on what I really need to do here in Seattle today.
Anyway I just wish that all my precious people of many different countries are happy with peace & stable as well as possible.
To make a wish for this universe can let me release my too much thinking naturally and I need to let them go little by little anyway...
I chose my positive life with DAVID to love each other more day by day...^^
And from today, daytime will become longer than day before yesterday little by little until summer!
I love this season because many beautiful flowers can enjoy us with colorful & cheerful energy with warmth & great sunshine!
To live on this earth needs to pay some cost for water, electricity etc...
But not only to make money to live but to be yourself is important for me.
Especially now David & I are shifting for new stage how we want to live together.
Of course, some money is necessary to live to pay some cost to live in Seattle.
So we have to get some money to live together but we don't need so much materials and gorgeous things for our living at all.
We just want to live simply with minimum materials and it let us feel comfortable naturally.
Without being stimulated by economic value & worth to buy more & new materials, we really want to live as we are.
To meditate in every morning can bring us great effect & influence to our mind & heart to begin new day these days.
To realize how we are blessed around us now is essential for me.
And we understand how we have enough in our marriage life with content & satisfaction today.
To focus what we really want to achieve in our marriage life is very important for us now.
And day by day, we are getting better and better as we want to live....I can feel actually.
So just we need to feel gratitude for our blessing every day in peaceful mind and we had better to move forward as we want.
Just we had better to do our best each day to focus on each faith & passion which we really achieve in our life.
Like is too short to look back our past and I'd like to focus to go forward with smile & benevolence as much as possible.
Anyway, also today I can feel happiness like I could feel it yesterday...so I will be happier tomorrow than today, for sure!!^^
