The Beginning Of The Star(9)/English

 

About Mr. Circle(3)

 

Circle only wants to look attractive.

(From “The beginning Of The Star”)

Mr.Circle said to the fairy with seven colors,

“I’m looking for those who have the same shape as I do.

Beautiful things make people happy.

Bright colors make us excited.

On the other hand,

there are beautiful things that we cannot express.

We cannot see a true heart easily.

It takes lots of time to know each other.

But when you realize a pure heart from others, 

You can see other’s sincerity.

Mr. Cirlce starts thinking of what a heart is.

The Beginning Of A Star (A New Edition)/「星のはじまり」

 

詩的な「星のはじまり」/Promotion(プロモーション)

 

“The Beginning of the Star” takes you on a journey of five characters,

Circle, Triangle, Square, Diamond, and Star,

as they seek the true meaning of life.

 

Mr. Circle only focuses on the appearance of everything.

Mr. Triangle loves showing off what he has.

Mr. Square only wants to stand out more than others.

Mr. Diamond only makes friends when they are convenient to him.

Mr. Star is colorless and transparent, so no one can see where he is.

禅語とペンギン

 

雨は降ったりやんだり。

朝から雷がゴロゴロ。

雨に打たれてじっとしている1匹のペンギン。

「ペンギンさん!!」と

声をかけても知らんふり。

喜怒哀楽を表に出さず、

じっとその場を離れない。

 

禅語の中に、

「応(まさ)に住(じゅう)するところ無(の)うして

その心を生(しょう)ずべし」という一文を見つけた。

「心をひとつところにとどめず、ことに応じて

自在に動かしなさい」

 

心が一点に定まると、

執着心が生まれ、がんじがらめになっていく。

ささいなことでも、大きなことに思え、

やがて周りが見えなくなっていく。

 

「心はいつも自由に遊ばせておく」

禅語の一文字一文字は、

何度読み返しても胸にこたえる。

 

一点を見つめるペンギンに、

「そんなに思いつめちゃダメよ。ねえ、こっちを向いて!」

ささやいてみたけれど、

最後まで相手にされなかった。

「バイバイ、ペンギンさん!」

 

洋書から学ぶ英文和訳(2)/Heart vibration

引き寄せの法則・洋書

 

“A belief is only a practiced vibration.”

(P86)

「信念とは習慣化された波動にすぎない。」

 

「引き寄せの法則」の中に

“Belief”の単語を見つけた。

辞書で調べてみると、

「信じること・確信・考え・信仰・・」と書かれている。

 

信念は志(こころざし)とつながっている。

環境や境遇によって、

信念の深さも人それぞれ。

 

思いが深ければ、

一つの考えが生まれ、

やがて揺るぎないものへと変わっていく。

 

けれど、信念はいつも試練と隣り合わせ。

周りから試されたり、

自分を見つめなおす機会に出くわしたり。

 

心の奥に秘めた信念を

時間をかけて熟成する。

根付いた雑草のように

思いが深まれば、

そう簡単に引き抜かれない。

 

一日の始まりも

一日の終わりも

すべては心の波動で回っている。

My favorite dictionaries!

 

This is my favorite place in my study.

The upper row has English Books, for example “Anne of Green Gables”.

The lower row has English dictionaries.


 

 

These six dictionaries have used for more than 20 years.

Every time I find new words,

I want to look up in the big dictionaries.

After checking the arrangement of each vocabulary,

I often recheck all words with definitions in English.

 

 

There are many words in the dictionary that I haven’t seen before.

Straying from the main topic so often,


I checked another words in the dictionary.


It’s the world connecting English grammar and tons of vocabularies.


Many books make me feel relieved.


 

Red one is a dictionary for junior high school students.

I love this dictionary because


it shows the meaning of the basics of each word.


I have many professional dictionaries, too.


It’s essential for me to examine the origin and application of each vocabulary.


The more I learn new words,


the more deeply I want to see the unknown world.


Dictionaries take me to the imaginative world.

With a smile in a simple life

 

Basking in the sun,

two dolphins and a flower are rolling from side to side.

I found those things in a 100 yen shop.

They make me smile every day.

 

 

These are “Noho-chan” that I bought a long time ago.

They are also smiling in my house every day.

Whenever I see someone’s smile,

even if it’s a moment,

I can feel time is a precious gift.

If I seek precious time for smile,

I will find a lot of happiness in daily life.

Real happiness might exist simple daily life.

(Thank you for Mercy!)

The law of attraction/Meditation

 

 

I found this book in a bookstore.

I was attracted by “The law of attraction”.

I have heard “Meditation” before,

but I didn’t know exactly what’s the meaning.

Now I understand something important for my life by reading this book.

I’m on the way to my dream,

but I enjoy simple daily life more than before.

I owe many people what I am.

I want to write many good stories by knowing myself more.

That is my wish.

Having gratitude for all the things and seeking slight happiness every day,

I’m going to take step by step.

Talk or Talk on and on

 

 

I talked with one of my friends through skype once a week .

She is living in America and helping me publishing ebooks,

so we often exchange our own ideas about my stories.

At the beginning, we just talk slowly and say silly things,

but in few minutes, we speak fast and laugh so often

because she is also a Japanese.

Our conversations are spoken in Japanese and English.

I like Japanese, so I feel at home to speak Japanese.

On the other hand, whenever I speak English,

 I can feel more energetic and talkative.

That’s why we might talk on and on.

Both language are very beautiful.

Japanese language is taking care of the courtesy.

On the other hand, I feel English has rationality and simplicity.

Both languages are very beautiful.

I want to keep on studying and really establish my own language world.

Writer’s diary/Home sweet home

 

The proverb says, “East or west, home is best”.

A hydrangea has bloomed near the gate of my house.


After it rains, it looks happy and joyful to get wet.


It’s been a long time until I could feel happy to stay home.


Now I think my home is best.


Once upon a time, I longed America and I went abroad to study English.


By experiencing outside world,


I learned the differences between America and Japan.


Thanks to these old days,


I realized many good things of both countries.


This hydrangea bloomed in a corner silently, but proudly.


We can find tiny blessings anywhere if we try to.


I want to make a smile for every blessing every day.
