Mirror of the Earth

Pocket

 

When I was little, I was keeping the mirror of the Earth.
Even when I was sleeping during surgery,
I was keeping the mirror of the Earth while sleeping.
Did you know that, mom?

The original owner of the mirror is the Great Spirit.
The Great Spirit has lost it and was looking for it,
but in fact, it was me who was keeping it.
I showed it to the Great Spirit and said, “Look, here it is”
Since then, it came to pass that I would keep the mirror.
I had always kept the mirror in my “pocket of heart”.

(when he was 7 yrs.)

 

 

In the mirror of the Earth,
every feeling of every living thing is reflected.
The reflection is sometimes in black-and-white
and sometimes in full-color.
When it is in full-color, it sends a message
that the Earth is a miracle itself.
On the Great Spirit’s birthday,
the mirror of the Earth reflects a bright light.
And the whole Earth is wrapped up in the light.

I learned the great secret, mom.
Things exists because there exists time.
Time exists because there exist things.
Each and every thing is made of time.

There are two reasons why thing is made of time.
First reason: As time goes on,
things are made or reformed by human, or
they change their shapes or move to another place.
Therefore, we can say that time makes things.

Second reason:  Things are made of particle of time.
Time is made of invisible small particle.
And things are made of invisible small particle, too.
If we look very carefully to the smallest detail,
we will see that everything is made of same particle.

Time, things, light, they are all made of same particle.
Therefore, we can say that things are made of time.

Everything is made of same particle, this very truth is something really great.
Everything is made of same particle, this very truth is something really wonderful.

When particles get together, they stick to each other as if being pasted.
Our heart, our flesh, they are all made of particles stuck together.
The Great Spirit, the spirits, the Earth, the stars,
they are all made of same invisible small particle.
Our bone, our lungs, our hair,
they are all made of same invisible small particle.
Without that small particle, we can no longer be alive.
So, we should not be nasty to our body.
Nor we should not hurt others.

We should not wage war,
because at war we are to take other’s small particle by force.
We should not steal small particles.
We should not steal other’s life and body.
Killing means to steal other’s small particle,
and that is why killing is bad.
We should make our life a good one.

Rushing does not make a difference.
Impatience does not make a difference.
We had better keep calm, and live free and easy.

When I saw TV news, President of the USA said,
“We will wage war to bring peace”.
Well, that is what I cannot see clearly.
If you wage war, you will no longer be peaceful.
I want to see him someday to ask what he really meant.

The future is not for one person, but for everyone.
If someone insists “The future is only for me”,
the other people think they have no future and get depressed.

(8 yrs.)

 

 

We create a brighter future by believing.
The more we believe, expect and imagine,
the more surely our image happen in reality.
Without imagination, we cannot go forward.

There are various people on the Earth.
For example, we have various skin colors that are chosen by the Great Spirit.
It is just like when we choose our clothes in a clothing store,
asking ourselves which one will suit us better.
It is wonderful we have various skin colors,
and it is wonderful each one of us has different figure and character.
Thanks to the fact that we are different from each other,
we can recognize each other.
If everyone is the same, it does not make sense.

Having a happy life means doing others kindness.
Happiness does not come to us spontaneously.
It is when we do good things that we feel happy.
When we do something bad, badness will pay us back.
What is most important in our life is thoughtfulness.
If we live thoughtfully, our town will be full of happiness.

(9 yrs.)

 

 

I want to make the world much happier.
I want make the Earth bigger and bigger for everyone to be happy.
“Making the Earth bigger” means “making happiness expand”
I mean, I want to wrap the whole Earth in happiness.

(7 yrs.)

 

 

We are alive to bring happiness to each other.
We have life to help each other to bring happiness to each other.

(9 yrs.)

 

 

May all sick people be healthy.
May all country at war be peaceful.
And may all poor people be rich.

(8 yrs.)
