Business trip to the US

(extraction from May 22) 
     I was hesitant to go on a business trip out of Japan, but this time it was hard to avoid.  As I flew over the Pacific Ocean, a thought came into my mind as we pass the date line. “We no longer need a stereotype or any kind of formats. We just need to focus on looking into ourselves in the environment and circumstance we have chosen to be in. The concept of time has changed.

     Today, we went to do some research on the natural environment offshore. Tomorrow we will be going into the deep forest. According to the local people, the weather seems to be much cooler this year. The tornados are occurring much earlier in the season than usual and in a greater scale. I’ve only seen just a little part of the US, but I sensed that the nature spirits are not honored. They are taken cared but not being worshipped. The sacred trees in Ise Jingu (The Grand Shrine of Ise) are worshipped for generations. The trees are honored by humans for thousands of years which creates a certain kind of aura (energy) to it. The nature and the creatures of Earth including humans are interconnected and the nature seem to grow and evolve accordingly.

   I’m still in the US on my business trip. Today, I’m going to write a fiction that came into my mind.

  R was introduced to an American named Bill at a dinner party. Bill is a former navy commander who entered an oil company and now working in the natural resource industry.  He said he lived in Yokosuka, Japan during his navy days.  Bill asked R for a drink later on. They talked about the nuclear power plant accident and many other interesting subjects. After opening the second wine bottle, Bill asked R, “Do you know the movie The Day After Tomorrow? Was it a big hit in Japan?”  R said, “Yes, it’s also famous in Japan and was a hit.” Bill said, “That great. You know, actually that movie was made as one of our government’s strategy to leak the information about the weather changes. Our government uses the movies often as a part of their strategy.  The invasion to Iraq in 2003 was also executed due to this information (R thinks his ‘government strategy’ refers to the Pentagon Report – climate changes alarm starting 2011’ ).  The government was planning to stock more oil for heat in order to prepare for the upcoming cold climate. In truth, paper money is not much of our concern. But I’ll tell you one thing. The world is worried about the US$, but it’s well protected for the US citizens. I can’t say anything about the dollars outside the US due to the exchange rates. But the same US$ will have different values from being an US citizen or not. I’ll tell you a secret. We will need a passport to protect money in the near future. (interestingly enough, US has its own law to the world that they don’t need to publicly announce how much money they are printing. This means, no matter how much debt they have, they can print money endlessly. The reason why this doesn't become an inflation disaster is because they have the military power and already in control of the world’s resources and economy). ”

     Through this conversation R sensed that the US government knows about the secret of the sun more than any other countries. The current Nasa website data on the sunspot is detailed. There are many reports and analysis on the predictions regarding the sunspot in the US.

   At the end, all the pricey products will be useless. Both US and Japan have great economic power and at the same time, we have the freedom to choose our own beliefs and religions. This is something in common. It is taken for granted, but still in many countries, this is not possible. In some places, there are still limitations and less freedom.

     My trip is over safely. I’ve felt protected by all your love and support through out this trip. I will be back to Japan at the end of this day. During this trip, I received many inspirations (revelations). It might be the weather. Because of this dry and clear air, the messages were all happy positive ones.  
I’ve come to an understanding that the humidity has a lot to do with the spirits existence. Japan is very humid and it feels like the spiritual energy is humid or dense as well compared to the US. In the old days, Kyoto was once a highly spiritual and culturally abundant place. It is located in a basin and very humid. It was both humid as in the weather and also in a spiritual density.

    In the US, I didn’t feel a lot of miscellaneous spirits flying around like in Japan. But constantly felt the big Lucifer (he is said to be a big devil but in truth he is a righteous god equivalent to Susanoo). Through Lucifer, I felt that Hilary Clinton is moving this entire country (Lucifer is behind her all the time, thus she is very powerful in many ways). I also came to an understanding that Hilary adores the Empress of Japan. I sense, one of the main reason of her recent visit to Japan was to see the Empress. There is a spiritual connection between these two ladies. Empress is a transformation of the sun goddess Amaterasu-ohomikami and Hilary is a transformation of Lucifer=Susanoo (Amaterasu and Sunanoo is like yang and ying of a coin=sun). The relationship of these two countries is inseparable like Tom and Jerry.

Look into yourself

    There was a TV show about this legendry man who claims that he could open any kind of dial type safe. He says the secret is to have the image in your mind that the safe will open. He images the inside of the safety box. As watching him talk, I sense that he becomes the safe resonating in the same frequency and feel the safety box from the inside. He says, “once I become one with the safe, the knowledge comes to me how it can be opened.”  This logic can be applied in relationships as well. If you can see how the opponent is seeing you, then you will know what to do to solve the problems you might be having.

      Lovers should look from the partner’s point of view how he/she is portrayed. Husbands and wives should do the same. Being the other sex. What would she/he be thinking in this kind of situation? Most people are only seeing things from his/her point of view. 
They don’t try to think from the opponent’s point of view. One of the purposes of our lives is to know who we really are, to really look at ourselves.  Once we realize this, we start to realize many things. Many people look at others and make decisions on what to do about one’s life. If you do things because many other people are doing the same, then once the many others start to collapse, you easily collapse as well. That is a wrong judgement.

     People who believe in his/her own good will and always have the habit to think about others from their point of view invites fortunate situations, things go smoothly without so much effort. 

     To really try to see yourself and learn who you really are while living a normal life is the fastest way to know what god is. You will start to remember who god is. This is a living meditation. Dogen(ōgen) is the actual person who established Zen and he tried to practice the meditative living. You don’t have to pay a lot of money just to go to meditation workshops. You will never find yourself through those kinds of meditations. There is no aim in true meditation. Simply live a normal life and see yourself, observe yourself, and when you can be truly grateful in your current condition or situation then you are enlightened. The more you feel deep appreciation to your life the more you are enlightened. A notable person who reached enlightenment has left a saying, “I cannot count how many times I had come to an awakening.” This means he had uncountable moments he felt appreciation about things happened in his life. So many people who became the victim of the earthquake and tsunami disaster are saying they are so grateful for this and that. They have and are still going through such a terrible experience and yet, they feel grateful for being alive and all the help and support there are receiving. From the realm of eternity (the view from the gods), these people are the fortunate people. We have come to a time where we have to face what happiness is all about.  During our short lives, many will come to a realization.

    Lets try to look into ourselves in our daily lives through these words.
