Everything will eventually change

     As time goes by, the world will always change. One person’s life continues to change at the same time. Feeling of despair and hopelessness rises when one assumes that “things will not change.”  No matter how hard your life is right now, it will change. Don’t loose your hope. One day, you will look back and it will only be a memory of the old days.

     But there is one thing that everyone possess and is eternal and unchangeable. It is one’s good will (innate god).  This is ever lasting. A good will is something you do for others without any expectation, without give and take type of deal. Everyone possesses this, but some people might have pushed it somewhere aside and lock it away.   

     The other day, there was a TV show 
about a Japanese soldier who was injured at the end of WWII. He was shot at the back of his ear, lost all his memories including speaking skills, wondering around some countryside of China for over a year. One very poor but very kind Chinese man had sheltered him for fifty years with many hardships until he was finally able to find his family back in Japan. The Chinese man who saved this Japanese soldier, was an abandoned child who was saved by one kind person. When he saw this soldier being lost in the street, he thought of himself and couldn’t leave him being beaten and terrified. Even though, Japan was an enemy at that time, he also saw the soldier as the victim of war. He simply couldn’t let him starve to death. It was a very difficult time. It was even hard for the family to get enough food for themselves. But still, he couldn’t abandon this young soldier. Because of poverty, he might have ignored the man at the first time. But still when he went home, he couldn’t stop thinking about the terrified and starving soldier. This is the good will (innate god’s work).

    Innate god nests in each and every one of us. 

The most important thing in our lives is not about social success. It’s about how much your innate god manifests. I believe those who are living with honest good will really start to shine from now on. The innate god will start to come forth and give a glow. On the other hand, those who are putting aside the good will, their faces will look dark like the black hole.  

   Things will start to change when the right time comes. So don’t worry about the future and simply continue to work with your good will. Whether it may look like hypocrisy from others is not a concern. Just start acting towards what feels right to youself. Your innate god knows and sees everything.
