Imagine a world of peace…

Sri Chinmoy, the well known poet and peace dreamer, inspires us to imagine a new world – a world of peace and oneness.

“Imagination has power.
Imagination is power.
Therefore, be sure to have
A good and elevating imagination.”
“Imagination is a world of reality which is waiting for revelation and manifestation here in this outer world, which we know as reality.”
– Sri Chinmoy

Send love to the waters at nuclear plants in Fukushima

Please send your prayers of love and gratitude to water at the nuclear plants in Fukushima, Japan!

By the massive earthquakes of Magnitude 9 and surreal massive tsunamis, more than 10,000 people are still missing…even now… It has been 16 days already since the disaster happened. What makes it worse is that water at the reactors of Fukushima Nuclear Plants started to leak, and it’s contaminating the ocean, air and water molecule of surrounding areas. Human wisdom has not been able to do much to solve the problem, but we are only trying to cool down the anger of radioactive materials in the reactors by discharging water to them. Is there really nothing else to do? I think there is. During over twenty year research of hado measuring and water crystal photographic technology, I have been witnessing that water can turn positive when it receives pure vibration of human prayer no matter how far away it is. Energy formula of Albert Einstein, E=MC2 really means that Energy = number of people and the square of people’s consciousness. Now is the time to understand the true meaning. Let us all join the prayer ceremony as fellow citizens of the planet earth.   I would like to ask all people, not just in Japan, but all around the world to please help us to find a way out the crisis of this planet!!
The prayer procedure is as follows.

Name of ceremony: “Let’s send our thoughts of love and gratitude to all water in the nuclear plants in Fukushima”: March 31st, 2011 (Thursday), 12:00 noon in each time zone.

Please say the following phrase: “The water of Fukushima Nuclear Plant, we are sorry to make you suffer. Please forgive us.  We thank you, and we love you.”

Please say it aloud or in your mind. Repeat it three times as you put your hands together in a prayer position. Please offer your sincere prayer. Thank you very much from my heart. With love and gratitude,

-Masaru Emoto, Messenger of Water

The Importance of Humility

I found this post by in the blog authspot:

Recently, I have been learning to understand more and more the great importance of humility. In this life, we are all essentially connected. No one person is better than another. We all started out as vulnerable infants, babies dependent on others to ensure our survival. We needed to place trust in the hands of our parents, our family members, our community and fellow person. From this trust, we realized that we need one another to survive and it taught us the valuable lesson that though we might want to believe we are where we are because of independent actions, we could never be who we are today without the interpersonal connection with others.

On this note, the more I think about this universal tie to other people, I know that I must learn to be even kinder and more compassionate to all who cross my path. Though it is something I already do my best to improve upon everyday, I know that there is always room for improvement. I know that sometimes when my heart stays angrier at a person or withholds a form of love (i.e. maybe a compliment) two people are losing out on an important growing moment. Two people because whenever we give love to another person, we are essentially giving love to ourselves as well. We cannot do something good for another person without feeling good about ourselves.

And, conversely, if we put down others and treat them in anyway other than kindness and compassion we are hurting them and we are hurting ourselves. People make mistakes. Sometimes people make extraordinary mistakes that cut your heart deeply, forgive them anyway. Give them more love than their actions may warrant at that moment. Their actions are crying for love. Would you walk away from a baby that was crying, in need of love? No, you would embrace that infant and softly caress away his or her tears and tell them everything will be okay. To others, you can look beyond their age, their insecure veneers, and whatever other mask they have put on and see into their heart. You can see their need to be loved and treat them with every ounce of compassion you would give to yourself if the situation was reversed.

Though in the moment it may be difficult, I have seen the beauty this can bring into the world. I have seen people who have spoken with the harshest words turn around and give and learn to love themselves more when I have forgiven their not so kind actions. Remember, it is the actions that are not good, we are all intrinsically priceless. We can change our actions, we can learn, but some people simply need more patience and love then others at times. Remember that you might need someone to give you more compassion when you are at your most difficult times.

Keep in mind, the kinder you are to others, strangers, co-workers the better this world will be as a whole. When you treat the postal worker with kindness, he will treat his family better and his children may treat your children better. It is all a circle. We all affect each other. Though we might think it’s a large world and we can’t make a difference, how many times have you run into someone you know at a concert, Disneyland, or even on a vacation? It is a much smaller world than you may think…after all.

Japanese Men Create ‘Devoted Husband’ Organization

If you happened to be passing through Tsumagoi, Japan, on a particular day last year, you might have spotted a very strange sight: In the middle of a large cabbage patch, dozens of well-dressed Japanese men stood in a line. One at a time, they each yelled out, “I love you!” and “Thank you!” Their wives, who were standing nearby, wept with joy. This was the aptly named “Shout Your Love From the Middle of a Cabbage Patch” Day – and no, it’s not a bizarre Japanese version of Valentine’s Day. (Though their Valentine’s Day isn’t quite what you’d expect, either: In Japan, women are expected to buy flowers and chocolates for their husbands, instead of the other way around). Instead, this unique holiday is an original creation of the Japan Aisaika (“Devoted Husband”) Organization. The original Devoted Husband and founder of the club, Kiyotaka Yamana, wasn’t always so devoted – the businessman’s first marriage ended in divorce because he spent more time at work than with his family. But after a second marriage, Yamana realized that if he shifted his priorities by making sure to spend time with his wife and to tell her how much he loved and appreciated her on a regular basis, he would lead a much happier life. It may seem simple to many of us, but to Yamana, the concept seemed revolutionary. In Japanese culture, work is a high priority, and relationships often take a back seat to business. By creating the Japan Aisaika Organization, Yamana hopes to share his enlightened philosophy with fellow husbands, helping them to improve their marriages by being nicer to their wives. It seems that quite a few of his fellow men are ready for a change: Since the group’s formation four years ago, the organization has quickly grown to more than 150 members.

Along with the cabbage patch event, the group holds an annual “Beloved Wives Day” on January 31st, where husbands can tell their wives how much they appreciate the work that they do, and must follow five “golden rules,” which include looking their wives in the eye, and calling them by their given names, rather than the traditional “Mother.” “Husbands who take great care of their wife seem to care about those around them,” he said. “So if there are more devoted husbands on earth, the world would become more peaceful.”
