“The future depends on what you do today.”

“The future depends on what you do today.”

“The future depends on what you do today.”

― Mahatma Gandhi

So think about your future every action you make.

Not only your future, it can be everyone’s future.

Each of us has a key to effect this world.

When you do something positive today, it will help creating positive future.

When you do something negative today, it will help creating negative future.

No one wants negative. We all need positive.

But once a while, we make mistakes, we make wrong decision to do something negative.

That’s ok.

We all need to learn to forgive ourselves also.

We all humans, we make mistakes.

Mistakes are ok as long as you learn positive lessons for our positive future.

Then your negative action turn to something positive.

“Future depends on what you do today”

What good did I do today?

Seems like much… Well, I made my son smile. I made my son feel that he is loved.
I make good meal everyday for my family so my family can be healthy and well, so my son can grow up strong and healthy. I thought about water, so I tried not to waste any water. I recycle everything I know that is recyclable. I meditate for my own peace. I am writing this blog so I can maybe spread little words to people.

and so many more little things.

and these little things will help creating our future.

“The future depends on what you do today.”

Every little things we do everyday is part of our future.

So smile!

Your smile now will help creating our positive future. 🙂

We went to Arches National Park, My son sit under the giant arch, and he learned to appreciate the power and the beauty of our planet Earth. Beauty of our planet touched his heart. He loves nature. That heart will lead him to do something to help save our planet.

This is beautiful cycle of our action.

Little things we do is not LITTLE. It is beginning of BIG. 🙂

Presidential Election. Conventions and the future America.

I am not political at all.(it does not mean I do not care about the country). I live in United States but I am an immigrant from Japan.

I am born and raised in Japan and I came to this country when I was 17 years old as an exchange student.

I have been living in this country for over 15 years now.

 

I love America.

I love Japan, my home.

 

Right now, there is presidential election war going on toward November. I heard Romney and Obama speaking. And there were so many more amazing speeches by other people as well.

I have no right to vote,  Because I am Japanese citizen.

But I love this country with all my heart. That is why I live here and had my son here. As I am international person, I have much of international view about this country. There are so many things that can be corrected. There are so many great things that no other country in the world have. Every country is the same way. It is just like no person is perfect, no country is perfect. Existence of Ying and Yang. It is the universal law.

 

I truly wish the best for America.

 

Equality every way, Harmony, Peace, Happiness, Health, Rights, Great Education, Taxes, health care, and costs that make senses to people, Best for the future generations, Special care for the  Environment and the Earth, Good leadership to have great foreign relationship, Equal respect for elderly, young, children, rich, poor, middle class, any races and any nationality, LOVE and CARE  and so much more I cannot write all.

I can tell the same thing to any other countries in the world including my own home, Japan.

 

Yes, I am a person who wish we can all live in harmony together under the same roof named Earth, as United Nations of Earth.

 

Most of all, Fundamental part of humanity,  we all should receive equal respect, equal rights, always respect each other and care and love for each other and the Earth that will promote peace and harmony to our lives and the planet. And please, please NO WAR no matter what. War is one of the worst thing we can do as humans. It is simply mass killing event that has no care and love for each other. 100% negative and there is no positive reasons to have war.

I may sound like I am talking about such unreal dream, but I think it is really fundamental part of us.

 

We all live on this one planet, Earth. We all are connected. Out of billions of planets in the space, We all live together on one planet. and we all call it home. We feel pain in our heart when we see children ding other side of the world. When one major country hit economy crisis, rest of the world will be effected. We all depend on each other some way and we all support each other many ways.

 

I simply care about the Earth and people.  and I want all of us to be happy and have a great environment so we can live our lives to the fullest.

I want my son and our future generations to have great lives and I want our beautiful Earth to be healthy forever.

 

 

Eastern Medicine

As I am born and raised in Japan, I strongly believe in Eastern Medicine.

Most of the hospitals all over the world is based on “Western Medicine”, such as the most common hospitals and Dr’s offices you visit when you feel sick. Doctors will examine you and will prescribe you the medicines.

If you have some illness, they may suggest you to have surgery that will cost whole a lot of money, or make you soak with the medicines that is very strong chemical.

Yes, they may cure some illness, they may not. Western medicine is based on getting lid of the symptoms and discomfort when you feel ill. Not really focusing on curing totally or preventing. When they give people surgery, people feel better sooner and they feel like they are cured. But depending on what type of illness you have, many people end up going back to the Dr. again for something similar.

In my experience of Hospital in Japan and Hospital in America, there are major differences. First, COST. American medical bills are so high even with insurance, it is expensive! And if you do not have insurance, you are basically stay sick or injured. Japanese hospitals are much cheaper and we have much better medical insurance system in Japan so we all can be covered with medical insurance with less cost.

Next is medicines. There are so many medicines available in the U.S. is illegal in Japan because many medicines in the U.S. is considered too strong and can be harmful. My son is born with Athma and he was born in the U.S. Since he was very small, he was given inhaler. So every time he has athma attack, I gave him inhaler. When I went to Japan with him one day, he had athma attack and I did not have inhaler with me. So I took him to the hospital in Japan(with out insurance), when I told Japanese Dr. I normally give him inhaler, he was very surprised and told me “Oh No way, we give little children inhaler. That is too strong for the small children and it is illegal”. I was very surprised to hear that and shocked. They gave him breathing treatment and prescribe the patch to prevent Athma attack. I have never seen that patch in the U.S. U.S. Dr. give him Shots and medicines. Also, visiting Japanese hospital without insurance, for everything, it cost me only $70. WOW, when U.S. hospitals can easily cost over $300 or more.

Also, I realize Japanese Dr. do not easily give you medicine. When U.S. Dr. ALWAYS give you medicine.

I have never left the hospital without prescription. No matter how minor it is, they will ALWAYS give you prescription medicines.

I have heard that medical system in the U.S. is truly based on the money the health care companies make. Not curing the patients. More medicine they sell, more money they can make. They do not want to totally cure people, they want people to stay unhealthy so people will come back to the hospitals to spend more money on medicines and medical bills. After learning about the system and difference between medical systems here and Japan, It makes senses to me.

Often western medicine helps people sooner. But they hardly focus on prevention and curing. When eastern medicine will focus on prevention that will lead to the cure. Most of the illness we commonly get come from our life style, food we eat and environment. If we eat healthy, have a healthy life style with less stress, surrounded by the beautiful healing nature, we can prevent so much illness.

Some people are hooked on medicines. Headache=Medicine! Stomachache=Medicine! Depressed=Medicine! Anything unusual=Medicine! Most of the medicines are the pure chemicals that is so unnatural to our body and always comes with all kinds of side effect and some of them seems deadly. So instead of always taking medicines, why not think of “What is the source of this symptoms?” It could be stress, it could be the diet, it could be the relationship with others… so on. People should more focus on the source of illness or pain. Not just to feel better at the moment spending lots of money.

Natural, Alternative way for the health you can do regularly is…:

Meditation

Exercise

Do what you really love

Always take a moment to rest and relax

Eat healthy

Fresh Vegetable and fruit juicing

Avoid prepared food product

Sleep at least 8 hours a day

Qi Gong

Hiking or spend some time in Nature.

So many more but I can’t think of it right now.

Please think, we all should live healthy in natural way.

Health does not come from medicines, Health come from our own body and nature.

Our body has very powerful healing power when we live the life style to let that power work in our body.

Taking most of the medicines is not going to cure you, it only make your symptoms go away or cure you temporally but not totally.

Believe in our own power and strength we have in our own body naturally!

Cheers to our health!!
