Entrust the Tosaiga “Kaiou”
When the sun fails
Things that can be changed and that cannot be changed.
To discern them one from another, the courage to accept what cannot be changed, and the will to change what can be changed.
This is quite difficult, but there is also a sense that this is what it is to live with a will.
Things that cannot be changed.
Firstly, I think it’s to accept who you are.
Even if you don’t become someone, you find unwavering value in the place of “being”.
It is to accept each other as an unique (irreplaceable) individual without loving or being loved conditionally .
When it comes to things that can be changed, words Romain Rolland said about the artist’s mission come to mind.
“It is the artist’s business to create sunshine when the sun fails.”
It is not limited to artists.
I think this is what it means to change.
“What If I had been born as a child of big business family.
What If I had the brain to compete for the first or second place in the world.
What If I had been born as a celebrity child.
What If I had been born into the family of an Arabian king.
I know these are just delusions that might make you laugh, but we all repeat similar patterns of thinking.”
“We all start from only one cell (fertilized egg), and it repeats the division steadily into two, into four and made a mouth, eyes, a heart to the entire body.
Everyone follows the same path according to the blueprint of life.
Blueprints are not what you draw, and you don’t know where they come from.
It can only be said that it was made.
Because I was needed… I feel that way.
everyone’s destined to be needed and here, we have the world without any fragment.
When there is no sun, create it.
It may be to recall that you are a light source itself.”
