Spirituality : Are you Okay?

  In Wikipedia, Mindfulnes is the psychological process of bringing one’s attention to experiences occurring in the present momentwhich can be developed through the practice of meditation and other training. Always people say MBSR, MBSR. What is MBSR? MBSR is the abbreviation for Mindfulnes-based stress reduction. It was made by Jon kabat-Zinn. He established the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. I’m a medical student, too. So I’m more interested in Mindfulness.

Definition of Jon kabat-Zinn

Mindfulness‘ is awareness that arises paying attention on purpose in the present moment non judgmentally.

“The present moment is the only time over which we have dominion.” – Thích Nhất Hạnh

Mindfulness : MBSR “Who ARE YOU?”

I want to try it! Maybe it can be my opportunity!

Planting the seeds

Hi! What’s up? Do you grow plants? I am planting seeds today. Maybe is it boring? But it is so interesting! Also it is really meaningful!  Planting trees is good for the environment, too. One idea popular  with the eco-conscious is to have trees planted for them. I planted seeds in plastic coffee cups abandoned on the road with my friends. It is nice to know I’m not alone. Life is really amazing. These tiny seeds will grow and grow. Small buds are cute Letters to Me. It will make me think deeply.

Letters to Me : You grow?

  Do you know ‘how much you grow’? A lot of times, we don’t care about it. Just live the daily life. The same day, same people, same work. But you know, there isn’t much we can do by our own will. It make us feel helplessness. Why do we grow plants? As the saying goes, “He that plants trees loves others besides himself.” It is our whyThis is very important to us. In the world, there are many things you can do. I want you can feel it. Everything is up to you!!!

Peace is up to you :0 Good luck!

Letters to Me : For missionary work! #5

What time is it now?

You know what? Even as we speak, maybe five people are dying. While I are writing a front sentence, ten more people die. Are you sad? I’m not sad. Im afraid there’s no more I can do. Actually sad because of it. I hate the fear inside of me. I hate me who even don’t try. When I know I can’t even feel it, I feel like everything is crashing downNow, it’s time to move on. But what can I do?

For missionary work

  In fact I think education is the most important. It’s not the education we generally know. I say ‘attitudes and values‘. I want to ask you one question. What is to remain in your heart? I think it is a moving experience. How many times are you touched? When is it? I think it is words. Meaningful words are the ones that have stuck in my mind. So I want to go missionary work. Though I should not necessarily through this method, I want to walk once. I want to be a memorable man. I want to stand on my own two feet. Finally next is my dearest word.

We have to work far beyond our ability. Always being out on the edge is where heaven will help us. That’s faith.

Peace is up to you 🙂 Good luck!
