This was my third time in Korea, but my first time in Japan and I was very impressed.
We had a little of everything as we visited Okinawa and Okayama. Over 1,000 people attended lectures in each place, despite swine flu warnings.
And we had the opportunity to share even more about Ho’oponopono during the many interviews. In addition, we had a small lecture and different and very special meals with such interesting people.
We were invited to stay overnight at an Inn in Wara. What an incredible experience.
This was the first time for me to sleep on the floor–or almost on the floor. We ate delicious natural food prepared by the Funakoshi family.
At the Inn, owned by the couple and their three children, they all cook with a lot of LOVE and blue solar water. And they take very good care of the Inn. I am so grateful for this experience.
Here are some pictures of my trip (click to enlarge):
Then we took the bullet train from Okayama to Tokyo. I shared with Ihaleakala how impressed I was by the respect that the Japanese have for everybody, which they show by the way they bow to each other.
Even the guards on the train and the waiters in the restaurant don’t discriminate. They bow to everyone over and over, not just one time. They keep bowing until they leave, never showing you their backs.
I told Ihaleakala that I understood bowing as the Japanese people’s natural way of cleaning.
Think about it. When you start a relationship with respecting the other by bowing, by recognizing God in the other person, don’t you think the encounter will start in a more positive way? You are a bit more aware and conscious.
It was interesting enough that Ihaleakala asked me to share this in an interview with a magazine in Tokyo.
Even if you cannot do it physically, bow to the other person mentally before talking. Be conscious that God is in everyone and everything. Bow and come pure of heart, you will avoid a lot unnecessary discussions.
