One day, I would love to be able to talk like that in my own language and also in English.
On the last night of my trip to the US after the retreat, we saw a beautiful rainbow on the way to Oakland. A rainbow is a good sign, it means hope to me. I felt it was celebrating for all of us who had for the past 9 days worked passionately to create a better world for humanity. Well, I admit we are far from perfect, but every one of us had the clear intention for creating a world that we would like to live in.
It's OK to get hurt
It's OK to get beaten up
As long as I have my intentions clear
All I want is peace,
peace in me, peace in you, and peace on earth
I stand up again and again
making a lot of mistakes until I get it
I stand up and do the best I can in that moment
If I fail and create mess, I connect with myself
Deep moment of silence to find the beauty of needs
Then, I am ready to stand up again to give another try
I guess my English is like that of children, but still I would like to express myself in English so that I can reach those of you who may not read Japanese.
