‘Wow! Such a cute plant. The round leaves look don’t have weight.’

I bring back the tropical-bonsai pot.

Holding in my palms, I found out the pot was quite heavy.

「かわいいポット。葉っぱが丸くて、重さがないみたい」

トロピカルな盆栽を購入。

受け取ったら、意外に重い。

Leaves are smiling,

round and flat, floating in the air.

Thin stem comes out

from a big chunk of root.

葉っぱはふわふわ笑いながら

空中に浮かんでいる。

か細い茎は大きな根塊から伸びている。

Heavy roots grasp earth. Leaves float.

Lower body grounds. Upper body becomes light.

Emotion is sterilizes. Psyche is clear.

重い根は地面を掴み、葉は浮かんでいる

下半身は床に繋がり、上半身は軽い。

感情は安定し、精神は澄み渡る。

Smiling

微笑みがこぼれる

Do you think the wall is white?

Yes. The wall is painted with white color. But if you draw picture all the wall has different varieties of white – gray. Even a surface has gradations.

Eyes catch the light. We see the color,texture, area and space

Aware the inside of room

壁は白いと思う?

壁は白く塗られている。でも、もし絵に描いたら、壁は白からグレーの間のいろいろな中間色で塗られるはず。ひとつの壁でさえ、白はひとつではない。

目が光を捕らえて、色を質を面積を空間を見る

室内を知る

We can’t see inside of our living body with own eyes,

but with nerves, feel the vibration of breathing.

生きている自分の体の内側をこの目で見ることはできない。

でも、神経で、呼吸の振動で感じることはできる。

Prana – life force goes with breathing.

Let breath touch all over within.

See the alignment of the bones, stretch or loose skin, lift or sinking organs

生気は呼吸とともにゆく

呼吸で全ての内側に触れる

骨の並びを、皮膚の張りを、撓みを、内臓の持ち上がりを、沈み込みを観る

Flow of Prana

Aware within us

生気の流れを観る

内側を観る

Roast sesame seeds in small pan. Keep shaking.

When it starts popping and smells good, pour into grind bowl.

With wooden stick, draw circles along the bottom edge slowly.

gomaae1

If I rush, grind quickly, seeds jump up, get away.

 

Focus on the movement of stick.

Grind slowly, smoothly, firmly.

Focus on the sound, color, fragrance with joy.

Mind-free.

 

Add cooked veggies. Mix up with Dashi and Soy-sauce.

Serve as a dish for body and mind.

無心

 

小鍋で胡麻を煎る。

パチパチはぜていい香りがしたら、すり鉢へ。

擦りこぎで底に沿って円を描いて胡麻を擦る。ゆっくり。

 

焦って早く擦ると、胡麻は跳ねて逃げ出してしまう。

 

擦りこぎの動きに集中する。ゆっくりと、滑らかに、確実に。

音に、色に、香りに集中する。その喜び。

無心になる。

 

茹でた野菜を加え、出汁と醤油と和えて、身体と心のための一皿になる。

Relax morning in a early-opened bakery waiting Anjani’s class starts.

bakery

 

In front of bakery there is a busy bus stop.

People come and go,

take a look fresh baked bread.

Asians, Westerners, Muslims, Indian,,,

Shop staff smiles brightly to each of them.

‘Good morning’

 

They say Freedom is limited in Singapore.

But here I can go where I wanna go

even in the night.

People take same bus, walk side by side

without wary eyes.

 

Not every country is like here.

 

Every place different kinds of freedom. Outer freedom is always in frame.

Sit quietly. See within. Peace, integration, freedom without frame is within.

 

 

自由

早起きのベーカリーでアンジャニ先生のクラスを待つ。

ベーカリーの前にはバス停があって、いろんな人が行き交う。

お店を覗くアジア人、西洋人、ムスリム、インド人。

お店の人はにっこり笑ってひとり一人に「おはようございます。」

 

シンガポールでの自由は制限されていると人は言う。

でもここでは、行きたいところに行ける。夜でさえも。

人々は同じバスに乗り、同じ道を行き交う。警戒せずに。

 

どこの国でもそうだってわけじゃない。

 

 

場所によって自由は異なる。外側の自由はいつも枠の中。

静かに座って、内側を観る。平穏と統合。枠のない自由は内側に在る。

‘I’m always on your side.’ My friend said with smiling.

Sounds sweetest.

But is it possible?

ganga

Everyone has different body, different stand point, different view.

Never be the same.

*

If you have always same as mine, does it mean you don’t have yours?

or

If I must have always same as yours, does it mean I shouldn’t have mine?

That’s scary ideas.

*

Even

I might not always on my side, my view, my convenience, my desire.

The more I attach them, the more I suffer.

*

Even body changes everyday.

Accept the difference between ex-me and me-now, me and you.

Follow the flow of life as it is.

*

Am I on your side? Maybe yes. Maybe not. So I smile always.

Every time I visit Mum, I find Japan keeps changing.

Even classic interior train has display as information board.

 

Japanese love ‘Kaizen’- ‘continually improve all functions in daily manners’.

Japanese are proud of this word, which spread out from their small islands.

Japanese are proud of their improvement, which they can see and show in charts.

 

i don’t oppose. It’s good. But how about our inside?

 

train door

Do we forget Zen tradition?

Do we forget happiness?

Do we forget ourselves?

 

Can I stand still for a while?

 

 

There is a small space.

a garden

 

I play there as playground.

Run. Jump. Turn around.

 

I take care there.

Clean. Cultivate. Watering.

 

I broke high wall.

Plant hedge.

Keep there healthy inside, outside.

Invite my friends sometimes.

Sit alone calmly most of the time.

 

Even hedge enclose the space,

land and sky are part of the Earth.

Wind pass though. Birds fly though.

 

No need to waste time to built anything concrete.

Once I go, the hedge will be vanished, the space will back to anonymous part of the Earth.

No worry. Be peaceful. Gratitude to be a garden right now.

Once has accident or operation, body awareness tends to be lost at that part of body. For me it’s left side. Left side is just quiet.

Right side is chatty and strong, works hard, compensates for left side.

Body is twisted. Center is lost.

 

Like a couple

Strong person wants go quickly, efficiently, more than weak person’s ability.

Strong person frustrates and pull. The more being pulled, the less weak person goes.

Couple can spilt, but the body not.

 

Strong side need to be gentle, wait and response to behalf.

 

Lotus devided

 

Ba aware the left side

Find the strength.

Start moving from there.

 

Breath in. Watch.

Breath out. Go a bit further.

 

Gently move right side

as a response  to left side.

Enough.

 

Breath into both side

Feel the whole body.

Body show the space to go further.

 

Be as a whole.

 

Sit in my balcony. Take off the glasses. Look the Sunset.

 

I’m shortsighted, don’t see detail. But who see the detail of sky completely?

Everyone’s sight is limited.

Leave the glasses. Then my sight has no frame, no limitation.

Sunset

Feel the sky as it is. No word is needed.

Feel the vibration with eyes, ears skin, with inner body.

Feel the vast space, above, front, side, behind, bellow and the tiny space I occupy.

 

All existence is vibration.

Sun set vibration penetrate though this pace in this moment.

Space is one. Existence is eternal.

I have many brothers and sisters in Bangkok.
