PL teaching – Live Each Day With Excitement > Challenge everything with enthusiasm. You will be rewarded with joy and encounter happy occurrences.
I am back from the most amazing time away, where each and every day was a new challenge. The rewards were many and the happy encounters and memories made, endless. There is no way that I can begin to tell you, or share with you all that has happened to me in the last 9 days. As I took in the country, the people, the environment, and all that went with the days and nights away in this remarkable country called Japan, I knew that it was a new chapter in my journey of self discovery. the images and sounds, the friends made, in one word, it was all profound. A simple egg – became not just an egg, but a “wow”, the taste was different and the colour of the yoke was as bright as the sun. Telling you this is so mundane, you had to be there, I thought a dye had been used, but I was assured that no this was the colour of the yoke in Japan. Certainly in every other instance I had to see a yoke it was the same intense orange.
Be assured that as the days progress and my mind recovers from the jet lag, I will be recounting the many moments/insights and learning, much is still being assimilated and processed. I was there to learn, I was on a pilgrimage, the Director of the International Office of PL – Rev. Tokuo Itagaki, and his team of assistants and staff did an amazing job. the Rev. Fukito Kimura who coordinated the Rensei Training was outstanding. It was a phenomenal experience.
There were hundreds of people there trying to communicate with one another, The main languages being Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish (Castellano), we were only 5 English, 4 USA and 1 Canadian (yours truly), we came together because of our faith and dedication to PL (Perfect Liberty).
For the Founders Day Ceremony ( Kyososai), August 1. PL followers came by the bus load. We are talking of thousands of people who came to worship/pray and celebrate. During service, as promised I held you all close to my heart so that the blessings could be shared with you. Oshieoya-sama’s presence brought total silence and reverence, it was totally awesome. The flames spell out LIFE IS ART
