I was in Japan, studying .. it was an experience of a lifetime. Teachers like this one, spoke only Japanese, for International students like myself, we had a translator, English for those of us from North America, Spanish for those from the countries that needed Spanish, and Portuguese for members from Brazil and Portugal. Here it is 2022.. and I am still assimilating and processing the experience and the lessons,
Yes, I was back again, and yes, the experiences were always a total immersion in the culture and the philosophy. Nothing was familiar, similar but different…
Now many years later, I look back and reflect on the journey that led me to today, I woke with a sense that I had somehow been away and have just come home again. Looking at the clock I see it is barely after 4 a.m. and I am awake with a mind full of questions and … and what…
PL Precept # 19 Begin once you Perceive.
I seem to have something I want to do, think I should be doing, but… it is not gelling… not clear what it is my subconscious is trying to make me aware of. I have been doing a lot of clearing out, cleaning up, could this be a by-product of the new spaces opening up around me?
PL Precept # 15 All is a mirror
What am I seeing? The 21 PL Precepts reveal the true path of life for all humankind. Beginning with Precept #1 Life is Art.
Today I will try to Grasp what is most essential – Precept # 17
Each Precept is written in simple and clear language, but the truth revealed in their words applies universally to all humankind. To be mindful today, I will do my best to continue to observe and try my best to declutter more of my “inner” thoughts so that I can progress in a meaningful manner, and do my best to live today with “good intentions”
PL Precept # 7 Everything exists in relativity.

Very interesting to see your perspective on the country which has been my home for the last 15 years. The pictures you post are of course commonplace for me, an Englishman in Japan! hope you can come back when travel restrictions are finally lifted.
I would have loved having someone who spoke my language and who knew Japanese wandering with me.. but such was not the case, never-the-less I was always made to feel welcome, but .. there was always that “unknown” that eluded me.
Another foreigner here living in Japan. It is interesting to see that not much has changed since you left this country 🙂
Very interesting impressions! 😉
thanks Tom.. Happy Week-end (long week-end end here in Canada)
