Fate and Gratitude

     115 years ago in the Meiji era, a huge earthquake struck offshore of Iwate Prefecture. Tsunami was recorded to be 38.2m high and killed more than 20,000 people. (
     The earthquake/tsunami disaster that struck Japan on March 11th, the epicenter had slightly moved south to the offshore of Miyagi Prefecture. This means in 100 yrs, the epicenter had moved down south. The prediction and caution for the next one would be offshore of Chiba or Tokai.  Before the offshore quake occurs, we also have to be cautious for the quakes on shore.
     However, we cannot just live in fear everyday. We must know that as a soul/spirit, we had chosen to live on this land of Japan. It is a fate that we chose. The Chain of Islands of Japan itself is a godly body. It’s alive and moving. We should honor this sacred land. The earthquake merely suggests that the dragon, god of this land, is being active.
     There is a story about a fisherman and his son. Amongst one big family, only one son and his father had survived the earthquake in Iwate occurred in Meiji era. The son said to his father, “lets quit being a fisherman and leave far away from the shoreline.”  The father said, “no we can’t do that. We have been fishermen for generations. The lives of the fishes have brought us to life, and we made our living from it. When we take away the small lives, the bigger lives (gods) will take our lives. This is a natural order/cycle. So until death greets us, we must send our thanks to the fishes and to the ocean. This is our fate. We take other creatures’ lives and so our family’s life is taken. We cannot run away from our fate. We must live through it. That is what life is all about.
      In order for us humans to live, so many creatures had sacrificed their lives and we must send our gratitude to them. There is a big cycle that is going on beyond our awareness. We must always say “itadakimasu (thank you for this food)” before we take away their lives and before we consume it into our body. And we must do our best not to take their lives as much as possible. God is always watching us. We must honor this land and ocean that we live in. We must honor all lives and our own lives as well. We must do our best to protect ourselves by being aware and prepare for possible disasters. Once we are prepared, we just let go of the control and let the nature take over. We simply need to be in gratitude and live a normal life.
      Ever since the 3.11 disaster, the geomagnetism is high in different parts of Japan. The land is trying to maintain a delicate balance. Observing and sensing these movements of the land, I cannot stop thinking how closely it is linked to the human brain waves.  Future is a blank sheet of paper. The humans create the scenario. It is possible for us to calm the movement of the land. We must continue to send gratitude to Mother Earth by saying “ikashite-itadaite arigato-gozaimasu, thank you for letting us live.”

”Tomorrow, on July 15th, 15:40 Japan time. Full moon. At 22:11 : comet 69P/Taylor will come closest to the sun (7.7year cycle)”(

      This means that from 12hrs before this will happen, from 10am tomorrow, gravity will influence the Earth. It will be full moon as well. 
The solar flare is quiet right now. So lets observe calmly with caution. All phenomenon can be revised by the energy emanated by many humans. The best and highest source of energy comes from gratitude. 

Ikashite-itadaite arigato-gozaimasu
Thank you for letting us live
