The process is important, not the result

  Be an observer. It’s not about being indifferent or neglecting the situation, but doing the best you can do and then letting go of the consequences. We tend to have the desire to say something against the result when we had put in so much effort. But when we let that feelings go, and see it in a calmly manner, we will be able to see the truth.
    You might be wondering what I’m talking about. The point is that if you are really working hard, doing your best, you can become an objective thinker. Most people when they put so much effort, they want to have the result that matches their efforts. They are not happy when the result was less than expected.

  But the laws in this World of Reality, is that material things are just in this dimension and it will eventually be lost, disappear and the value shifts to something else. The efforts and the hardships you went through during the process of making something is where the value lays. This energy is eternal and will be taken with you even after the physical death. This world and the world after death is almost an opposite world.

  What I am trying to say is that there are too many people in this world who are only looking for results and forgetting the process. Those who’s purpose of life are only about results, they sort of look edgy and emotionally unstable.

  Life will always end. It is a limited world. So if you could let go of the results, and simply be truthful to your conscience, not being ashamed of yourself but instead proud of yourself, you are a true winner. The energy of those attitudes will affect the other/after world in a good way.

  The process of sending ancestral kuyō is the same. You cannot see the results. But it is about having mercy and compassion to those who came before you. Again, it’s not about the result. If I did this… will I get this…?  The fact that you are alive today is because of your ancestors who came before you. You do the kuyō, simply because you want to say thank you to them.

  There are too many people in this world that takes things for granted. Those are the ones who suffer after death.

  Be the observer, the one who calmly focus on the process. If you can be a master observer, you will understand eternity.

Thank you for letting us live

I would like to spread the Gratitude Awareness towards ancestral spirits and everything around us so 5% of the world population will start acting on it on a daily basis.
