Last month, I found this Vipassana Meditation center in Seattle.
And also I found 1 day Meditation course there fortunately.
I booked it on 2nd of April with David.
Because we need to have a day to make ourselves sink in noble silence.
We keep our habit to meditate every morning to start new day from last February.
And I am going to take part in the 1 day course with David.
Our meditation time can bring us a great energy to start a new day.
And to meditate is necessary habit for us now and we will continue it together from now on.
Today is the end of March and tomorrow will be April soon.
It is very beautiful weather with sunshine & blue sky.
Someone wears only T-shirts and someone does only sandals.
There are people who wears swim wear on the beach today...already it looks like a summer season now.
Many people in Seattle are strong for cold temperature and they don't wear too much clothes.
Sometimes I cannot believe how little many people wear light clothes for me.
Anyway tomorrow will start new month...and I wish that new month will be happier than before day by day.
And I wish that everyone will enjoy this warm season with beautiful flowers & smile as much as possible!^^
In winter season, there were so many days of rain in Seattle.
And now the weather is getting better than before with sunshine and I can take a walk in daytime.
I am so happy that I can take a walk with warm sunshine these days.
And after taking a walk, I can feel so much comfortable feeling both in my body & my mind.
To take a walk is the best exercise for me and it is necessary for my life.
David likes taking a walk, too.
And we love to walking together.
Sometimes we take a walk by each self to focus on what we are thinking in silence.
And to take a walk by myself is a nice time to keep my mind in peace & stable.
Taking a walk can bring me a nice flow through my body to my mind and I want to recommend all of my friends.
Especially to take a walk in the nature is the best...near the sea, in a forest and around a lake, etc.
I love the location of the seaside to take a walk the best because I can enjoy the sound of the sea.
To take a walk by beautiful sea is my favorite and I really love it!
I am just happy to feel the comfortable atmosphere by walking by seaside and I can feel gratitude for my life now.
Anyway I wish you have enough time to take a walk in your life, it will enrich your life...for sure!!^^
Only 3 days, this March will finish soon...
I cannot believe how quickly time is passing.
After this month, it will have passed one forth of this year already!
Day by day, something happened to me and every day can not bore me at all.
Sometimes I felt so happiness and sometimes I felt very bad but I don't mind all my past.
To seize THIS DAY is the most important for me because looking back to my past is not my concern.
To cherish today can bring my some new discovers and experiences and it can enrich my life.
To focus on today is my priority to think what I can do for today.
And every happening can make me grow up day by day.
Sometimes tough things happened to me but even the happening gave me some learnings in this life.
Life is too short to look back so I want to cherish in front of my situation.
To focus my today is possible to do by myself even I am very tiny existence in this huge world.
Anyway only 3 days in this March, I want to cherish at any single moment as well as possible.
How about you??
I wish you will have the wonderful ending of this March to continue new April soon...^^
Every day many babies are born and many people are dying every day somewhere in this world.
And sometimes it happens to my knowing people.
To know somebody's dying with hopeless situation makes me so sad that I cannot do anything about it.
Only GOD knows what will happen next.
In this morning, I got a terrible news in JAPAN but I cannot do anything about it at all here in Seattle.
And only what I can do for it is praying for peaceful status to finish one's life as God's guide.
I decided to live in the U.S.A after I got married David and I don't regret it at all.
But this situation hurts me inside of my heart terribly even I cannot do anything about this situation.
Just my heart feel heart-rendering sorrow and my stomach feel bad inside of myself...
I know that this world has so many irrational things which we don't want & need in our life.
But it happens actually to me now and I feel so much worthless to one's life.
I am not a doctor and I have no tool to cure of someone's life.
To pray for one's peaceful status of mind to let one's body go off from one's spirit.
To release all my attachment for one's life is important for me know.
Because I have nothing to do it at this moment.
Just I wish for one's heart in peace to go the heaven soon...
And only what I can do for it is keeping my mind in peace at any situation.
To overcome this sad situation can let me grow up with strength & giving up what I cannot change in this situation.
Anyway there are so many this world not to change by my choice and just I need to face on it.
Not to run away from this sad reality but to face on this can let my get stronger & tougher than before, for sure...
May all beings in this world be in peace for next re-incarnation...BE PEACE!
I cherish my life until my body's death because only I can do for my precious life.
Today is ester for celebration of the Resurrection.
But I am not Christian and I don't know how to celebrate Easter today.
Yesterday, I looked at an event of "Hunting Ester Egg" for kids in a public park.
But for me, I don't mind the celebration for Easer at all and I just don't know it.
How is your day today??
I cherish trust for the foundation of human relationship and it is very important for me.
But sometime, the lack of trust can hurt my heart terribly and I was hurt by someone who doesn't cherish the trust without unconsciousness.
And maybe the value & worth of relationship is completely different from mine & the others with ignorance.
So I may not be hurt by someone's unconscious ignorance and they don't meant to hurt me at all.
Because they don't know how important the trust I care for human relationship and they just don't understand my value of life.
There are so much differences & misunderstanding between people's relationship and I don't need to be hurt by others' ignorance.
Maybe I need to release my hope for what others cherish my importance of trust for human relationship.
And just I need to learn our differences about the value & priority in each life.
Today is very calm & quiet Sunday for Easter.
And I want to cherish this quietness & calm atmosphere with peaceful mind.
Because I love the noble silence in my heart deeply and I need it especially today.
Today is the celebration for the Resurrection....so I'd like to revive myself more & better than yesterday.
Just I need to focus on being better of myself day by day.
I believe that "EVERYTHING IS GETTING BETTER AND BETTER every day!" and it worth to shout loudly to the sky as wish!^^
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!!
Yesterday I got a great news from a Japanese company.
The company introduces Macrobiotic diet & healthy life style through internet and I read some columns sometimes.
And a few days ago, I found a page of the company to want to hire a writer now.
I just tried to write my passion to get the job of writer because I love Macrobiotic cooking & healthy life style.
And I like the company's passion to introduce their wonderful columns to many people in JAPAN.
After I sent my message to apply the job and I got a nice new from it yesterday.
I felt so nice reply from them that maybe I will be able to write to the contents soon.
But at first, I have to write "Test Writing" about something to test my writing and I wrote it again and sent it as soon as possible.
And again I got a wonderful reply after they read my 1st test writing before I sleep last nigh again.
They want me to start my writing as soon as possible and I was so happy to know that.
David said, "I am proud of you, KEIKO.!" and I felt the same way, too.
Now today I made my profile to send them again and I tried to write my 2nd test writing.
I wish my test writing will be pleased with their way of thinking and I hope to start my writer carrier in JAPAN!! ^^
Anyway I am so lucky that I can make my experiences & learning in JAPAN use of something new & good job of writing soon!!
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.
Last night I couldn't start to sleep so well.
I don't know why but I started to think something too much and my mind was awake until midnight.
I tried to fall asleep but I couldn't.
And just I waited to feel sleepy in the bed.
Little by little, I could feel sleepy after midnight and finally I could start to sleep.
I woke up the same time as usual as I wake up in this morning.
But my body could not feel good after sleeping not enough.
I need to sleep in this afternoon to recover my less sleeping than usual.
To sleep well & enough is the most important to keep healthy body & mind.
After waking up in the morning, I want to feel good to start new day.
Today is totally different from usual and I realized how important my sleeping time at night well.'
Anyway I will sleep tonight more than last night to recover my body condition.
Just my body feel to need sleep more today.
I will try not to think too much before sleeping tonight to start sleeping better & deeper than last night. for sure!^^
Yesterday David got a good news and I could get a good news, too!
We had so much happy feelings each other that we could feel very nice to watch each smile together.
Recently, something happened to us without intention & purpose to feel bad each other.
But we handled & managed to make them better to make us positive world anyhow.
We believe that "Everything is getting better and better day by day!" and we said it aloud to the sky as much as possible.
In JAPAN, words which we use has a power & energy to make it happen actually.
And I believe that our saying words has huge power itself and we need to be careful to use any words.
All words need to use for the direction of TRUTH & LOVE at anytime because all words of ours can move us for the direction.
To use our words means that our energy move forward of better way & positive direction as we say.
Sometimes bad situation happened to us but it didn't matter with us at all.
Not happenings but our faith will bring us the great reality as we hope & wish with positive words.
And it could happen to us yesterday and we were so glad to get each GREAT news.
GOD (creator of this universe) is watching & protecting us at any single moment.
And only GOD knows our future but we can control our future by using positive words to make it happen sooner or later.
Today is the day before full moon and I am careful to use my words to myself and DAVID.
Because much energy of FULL MOON has started to influence us today, too!
I wish my love & faith inside of myself can reach this huge UNIVERSE to make it happen for better & positive way as I wish.
And I have no doubt our future with happiness & love all the time.
To believe inside myself & DAVID's love has no enemy in the world.
And our life is getting better and better day by day....obviously!
I appreciate with everything around me today, too....and we are BLESSED by GOD at anytime.
Have a great day with smile & Blessing at your living place in this world! ^^
Your reality can make your thought & words to this universe, I believe truly...
