From “The Beginning Of The Star” by Ray Kamijo
It takes a long time for things to mature. This process is very noble and precious.
It is not easy to open your heart, but if you open it, the people around you will open theirs.
Each person who lives in this world exists to help someone else.
Even if someone hurts you in school or at a meeting and you are suffering because of this,
there is something waiting for you at the end of the tunnel.
Even if you feel that the tunnel is very long,
there is surely something important waiting for you that only you can do.
You are a very important person.
1) He is a man of a great ability(=a very able man).
2) The matter is of no importance(=not important).
3) She spoke Chinese with great fluency(=very fluently).
4) The road is icy, so take care(=be careful).
5) You are at liberty (=free) to leave any time.
A sparrow is watching me!
He (or she) is begging me some grains of rice.
With the waking up early in the morning,
I’m going to put some grains of rice on the plate.
However, this sparrow seems to be interested in a human being, not rice.
The mother of the child is observing him, which were walking around the ground.
The mother sparrow tries to approach her child.
Even though they are tiny creatures, they have full of love in their heart.
One of sparrows are also looking at me among the branches.
I’m writing HEART to HEART (108 stories)
which appearing many creatures like Sparrow, Cat, Crow, Raccoon dog and so on.
Now, this story spreads all over the world little by little.
I hope that people feel happier through HEART to HEART.
When spring comes,
everything looks so bright and shining.
Things which we can see look more colorful and bright
as if they woke up from the long hibernation.
“Journey of Life” has published in Amazon on April 11, 2013.
The students who are majoring Japanese in Belmont University
translated Japanese poems by Ray Kamijo into beautiful English ones.
Two languages spread out to the big sky over boundaries.
just like flowers come into bud bathing in the sun.
If we keep desiring dreams in our heart,
a road that we haven’t expected plain flowers.
Not only bright flowers, but also plain flowers are equal to get sunshine
from the sun every day.
Wealthy qualities exist not outside of appearance, but inside of each heart
whether we can keep desiring dreams to come true.

Short poems and sayings include deep meanings.
I found a good sentence in Sai Kon Tan.
When you really want to observe something,
keep looking at it until you thoroughly understand it.
This is how, for the first time,
you will be able to see not just what it appears to be,
but what it really is.
Things which one can see have many kinds of shapes.
If he thinks much of outside of shapes,
he is apt to lose a substance.
When he thinks and with our own heart,
and takes much time until he understands inside of things,
real things hidden in mist will appear.
The deeper he thinks, the more he will see the reality.
