This message is a mixture of things that I am interested in and things that I find that I hope can help other people in their journeys. Some things I post here just serendipitously pop up or someone sends it to me and then I think, "Oh, this would be great for..." and I send it to them or sometimes I post it. The last two days I stumbled upon these videos about Japanese culture and how it is viewed through the eyes of traditional carpentry. I firmly believe that learning about other people, other things or other arts can help us gain a better perspective about ourselves. To see how others live helps us to understand how we live. Their passions, love and suffering are the same as our passion, love and suffering. As the Dalai Lama said, "We are all the same." One of the greatest skills to acquire is the ability to see things from another person's perspective. I usually like to vary my message/posts and not post the same things or too many videos in a row, but I really liked these two videos. They really inspire me and help me to understand Japanese culture better. I hope that they inspire you in whatever you do. Please enjoy and have a wonderful day!
