Enjoy even the hardships

      Many things happen in our lives to learn about ourselves, who we really are. One of the most important purposes of our lives is to learn about your true identity (innate god).  If you are facing a problem now, think that you are testing yourself unconsciously how strong you are on the maternal side (innate god). If you are bullied, think what you are supposed to be learning from this experience. What is life about? You are challenging your innate god. You need to protect your heart (innate god). And in order to do so, you need to become strong.  You cannot stay passive. You have to become strong as a demonic god to protect your heart from getting hurt. 

     People say that the awakening is about recognizing the nothingness or the oneness.  But do these ideas help in raising a child? The important thing is to have compassion and kindness. This is the heart of god, the heart of Buddha. In real, we are here on a stage called Earth through the kindness of the greater existence. If it is true that nothing really exists, the phenomenon of birth will not occur. The fact that you exist today is the evidence of the love and mercy from the greater existence. If you’re practicing some religion or religious training that forces you to loose compassion or merciful heart, I suggest you stop it now. Through experiencing hardship in the daily life in actual society, compassionate heart grows naturally. This is the right way. A true spiritual training should be done in our normal daily lives interacting with the society.

      The human soul chooses to return to do this inconvenient world, because he wants to experience challenging and unexpected situations. When you are not in this plane, in other words when you don’t have a physical body (=time) , the world appears exactly and directly from your consciousness. After this physical life, if you didn’t commit suicide, you are able to stay in the world you desire. If you want money, you will be soaked in a golden ocean. If you want to have a lot of sex you can with thousands. If you want to bully someone, you will have thousands to bully and torture. Looking from other souls, this world is called hell.   

     If everything goes as you wish in this world as well, it might be fun for a while but you will eventually get bored. You would wish for more stimulation. It’s like a drug and your ego becomes larger and larger. At the end, you will be destroyed by your own ego. So try to enjoy every experience. When you couldn’t really enjoy it, simply observe it in a calm manner because in this physical world, time is limited and all experiences are precious. You could try to avoid those experiences that hurt your heart (innate god) in order to protect it. The physical body is a rental car. A temporal vehicle borrowed from your ancestors and your innate god.

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.

Focusing on one thing is the key to awakening

*Apology for the delay in updating. I had a problem with internet access for 2.5 days.

      There are numerous ways to heighten your spirituality in your daily life. A housewife can find her way in the housework. NEET (Not in Employment, Education or Training ) people can find his way while struggling with anxiety as long as he doesn't give up. Later in your life, you will understand that period was your training period of life. 

     There is a legendry Japanese manga called “Tensai Bakabon.” One of the character in this cartoon is the “le le le no ojisan” (an older man who sweeps the street saying le le le no le~ and that's all he does).  

     This uncle lelele-no-le is said to have been characterized from one of the monk name Cuuda-pantaka in the Buddhist scripts. 

     Cuuda-pantaka was a very clear-headed trainee monk in his past life. He vilified a female trainee who wasn't good at memorizing the chants. When he had reborn, from the reflection of this past life, he became a man who couldn’t even remember his own name. (In the place he was buried after his death, a ginger had grown. It was rumored that when you eat this ginger, you become stupid. The origin of this rumor probably came from the nature of Cuuda-pantaka). Being a trainee monk in his past life, he became a follower of Buddha in the next life once again. However, because he couldn't do anything, the other followers tried to expel him from the group.
     Buddha heard about this and called Cuuda-pantaka. He gave him a broom and told him to simply sweep all day. Since then, Cuuda-pantaka simply kept sweeping for years after years.  One day a thought came into his mind. “The filth in the human heart is hard to clean. But if you keep cleaning, it can change and purified. Without a doubt humans' heart can be changed.”
      When he reached to this recognition, his filth he had carried from his past life about vilifying the female trainee had vanished in a second and his intelligence revived 
(the above story is through my psychic reading).

       When you focus on one thing and simply devote, serendipity may occur. “Awakening” occurs in the same manner. As long as your goal is to be awakened, you are distancing yourself from it. Awakening should not be the purpose. Same thing can be said about happiness. If you could simply be grateful in what you have today, you will realize you are already happy.  You have a spiritual connection, perhaps a fate, in where you are and what you are doing now. Simply devoting on the work in front of you is the key to recognize happiness in one’s life. Don't think too much and just devote. Happiness and good fate will "come" to you (rather than trying/going towards it).
