Why do human beings keep fighting with each other or
Why can’t we talk instead of fight (war)?
People are trying to change others…
People don’t want to change for others…
People think “I am right, you are wrong”…
I was thinking about “how can we resolve issues of terrorism
and war in this world, can we talk instead of fighting?”
And then I realized “I need to think about my issue
first” (since I moved into my apartment in Montrose one year ago)… yes, I have
an issue about my living situation… my upstairs neighbor (64 years old woman who is not working) has been waking me up
every night (around 11:15pm, 12:15am and 1:15am) with loud squeezing footsteps (it sounds not normal & regular footsteps) for one year… I had to
call police twice, and I fought with this neighbor twice…
I tried to go to bed at the same time when this neighbor
goes to bed… it doesn’t work (for me late night energy is very negative… I like
positive energy in the early morning…The early bird catches the
And then I tried to reduce her noise with classic music
or wearing earplugs…but I still could hear her noise and sometimes I am not
able to go back to sleep…
One time I wished her to disappear… Oh no… this is very
negative thought… bad, bad, bad… this is not me…
Since I became a membership at Descanso Gardens… I walk,
meditate and read at this peaceful place, and I realized that “I should change
my thoughts about my upstairs neighbor”… yes, I realized that “I need to wish her
happiness instead of hate her noise”.
Lately I have been wishing her happiness… no matter what
happens… I will be ok…I need to remind myself about why I live here… because I
want to have a nice rose garden view with my eye level from my living room and bedroom, and
I want to have a nice mountain view from my kitchen, dining room and bathroom.
Life is beautiful no matter what… I believe inKarma.
I would like to keep to see beautiful thing and to think beautifully. I would
like to keep to be with good people and be kind to people. I think these make
us happy and bring happiness.
Regarding the North Korea issue… I wrote a tweet today to President
“Dear President Donald J.Trump, I respect that you are a
great negotiator. Would you send FOOD(love) instead of MISSILE(hate) to North
We are all same human beings, I believe in human beings. Everyone has a good heart, so we can talk and we can get
along each other. Do you agree?
As you know many department stores (in U.S. and Japan
both) are struggling these days due to consumer’s life style (online shopping, cheap
fast fashion stores and discount stores).
In general people want to have a convenience life style
and want to purchase reasonable price products.
Last October when I bought gift items (for myself and
friend who visited this store together) at RAINS in Ojai, I was very surprised by
that RAINS has a complimentary wrapping service (all Japanese department
stores have a complimentary wrapping service in Japan). I was smiling on the
way back to my home after I shopped at RAINS.
This spring when I heard about some Japanese department
stores in country side are closing business and their towns became like a ghost
town, I thought I want to find out why RAINS is doing well, and I wanted to
inform some great news about RAINS to Japanese readers who are struggling in
I’m glad that I did it. I met a wonderful CEO of RAINS (Mr.
Alan Rains) and found…
