QUESTION 5380: DO YOU WASTE THE MOMENTS OF YOUR DAY, OR DO YOU USE THOSE MOMENTS TO RE-ENERGIZE YOURSELF AND TO GROW BEYOND THE PRESENT YOU? EmilKoval©2018

MY THOUGHT 14428
QUESTION 5381: DO YOU REALIZE THAT DOING SOMETHING AND DOING NOTHING HAVE BOTH NEGATIVE AND POSITIVE CONSEQUENCES? THE POSITIVE AND NEGATIVES OF THE CONSEQUENCES OF DOING NOTHING OR DOING SOMETHING ARE BASED ON YOUR CHOICES, YOUR WHYS, AND YOUR HOWS? EmilKoval©2018

TRADITIONS/RITUALS: IF YOUR CULTURE HAS LONG LOST MANY OF ITS CULTURAL EXPRESSION, AS WELL AS TRADITIONAL RITUALS; THEN IT IS TIME TO RE-EXAMINE WHAT YOU HAVE LOST AND MAYBE RE-INSTATE SOME THEM ON DIFFERENT LEVELS OF APPRECIATION. SOME RITUALS DESERVE TO GO BY THE WAYSIDE AND SOME RITUALS ARE IMPORTANT TO CONTINUE. THAT IS FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL AND EACH GROUP TO DECIDE WHAT THEY WISH TO DO. EmilKoval©2018

REFLECTION 050: I HAVE LIVED IN JAPAN EIGHT TIMES FOR A TOTAL OF EIGHT YEARS. I HAVE TAUGHT ENGLISH FOR SIX MAJOR JAPANESE COMPANIES, AT WASEDA PREPARATORY SCHOOL, AND TO SPECIAL GROUPS AT WASEDA AND KEIO UNIVERSITIES. I REMEMBER THOSE ENLIGHTENING DISCUSSIONS. THE STUDENTS OF THE CLASSES THAT I TAUGHT IN THOSE COMPANIES WOULD TAKE ME OUT TO EAT AND DRINK AFTER EACH CLASS. UNDER THE FACADE OF BEING DRUNK, THEY WOULD SPILL THEIR INNER FEELINGS OUT TO ME BECAUSE THEY TRUSTED ME. I HAVE LEARNED MUCH AND HAVE REVEALED LITTLE. THEY WERE OLDER THAN I AND MAY HAVE PASSED ON BY NOW. I HAVE HAD DISCUSSIONS WITH YAKUSA, JAPANESE VETERANS OF WWII, AND SURVIVORS OF HIROSHIMA. ALL ARE LIKE BROTHERS AND SISTERS TO ME BECAUSE I HAVE ONLY LOOKED AT THEIR HEARTS, NOT THEIR POSITIONS IN SOCIETY. MOST PEOPLE LOOK FOR SOMEONE TO EXPRESS THEIR MINDS FREELY TO, WHICH IS VERY DIFFICULT IN MANY SOCIETIES; ESPECIALLY IN JAPAN. THERE ARE SO MANY STORIES FROM MANY WONDERFUL JAPANESE INDIVIDUALS THAT I HAD MET. THOSE STORIES ARE FILED IN THE LIBRARY OF MY MIND. EmilKoval©2018
