living to the last without regret


It is hard to live. You cannot live without hardships or sadness coming up by turns.

  • hardship 苦難
  • sadness 悲しみ
  • by turns 次々に

We were born in this world at long last. The following is my memory. When I was in my mother’s womb, I only had my memory in fragments. I just found myself seeing my parents’ faces and the room. In the middle of going through the womb to get out of it, I woke up and had my own consciousness, which is the same as I’ve got now, and since then I’ve kept all of my memories. I was suffering on leaving my mother’s body because I couldn’t breathe . A nurse slapped me on the hip but it couldn’t work out, so she soaked me in hot water, when I breathed for the first time in this world. What I thought then was,” I was born at last. I’m going to live this life to the full.

Buddha said that human beings cannot avoid living, aging, falling sick, and dying. Once a man was born, he gets old, ages, gets sick and dies sooner or later. Even a self-realized man like Buddha grew old, fell sick and died. Even a enlightened man cannot die without experiencing illness. If you get diseases, you cannot live free and must feel yourself miserable. But this is what a man should be.

God I feel transmits a message that a human life is a moment and you should go through as many  hardships as possible, accepting pleasantly, without divine favor, and that you are successful in life as long as you have gratitude for everything even if you end up in misery. Let’s live with no regret until the very end, the breaking of the spirit.
