@Sam K and @Bobby I think you should both know, I had to run your messages through a translator since I only recognized a few kanji and a few words. 🤦‍♀️ I have a long way to go. ::withers:: I do appreciate the words of encouragement tho. <img src="> 

 

I figured you would, but practice is practice, right? 😁

Me too!

I started learning japanese 3 years ago on and off and I'm still a beginner lol 

I didn't learn any japanese AT ALL last year. Hopefully that'll change.

一緒に頑張りましょう!


はい、そうです。頑張らましょう!

Yes, though I'm nowhere near native-level fluency. I can get by when I'm there and manage some conversation as long as it doesn't get too technical, but you won't see me giving eloquent speeches in Japanese anytime soon.

 

My proudest moment in all my years studying Japanese was last time I was there, when an old guy at a train platform started a conversation about Trump with me and I actually held my own. 😆


if you can have a conversation about politics then you speak better than I do. I can barely manage to string sentences together. I’m jealous. 🙂

I've attempted to learn so many languages ( 8 of them actually, and I can't speak any of them.

Me, too, @ckaricai! My number is not so high, and I've mostly stuck with European languages, but you'd think I would have become fluent in at least one of the languages I've studied over the years.

 

Still, I don't see myself as a failure; I don't live in a very cosmopolitan area, and would have little opportunity to practice French or Italian or Tsalagi, and most of the immigrants to the area from former Soviet states speak related languages which are not Russian - not that I was ever fluent in that either.

 

But just studying a language opens connections in your brain that wouldn't have opened otherwise. It's really hard to consider concepts you don't have words for, and there are always concepts in a language that don't exist in others, or have to be approached through some very convoluted path. By studying Japanese, you have access to those ideas unique to that language. And right there, you are far more successful than anyone who has not attempted to learn any language beyond the one they spoke at home as children.

Ah thanks for this reminder. It's true. Studying languages does open up your concepts for abstract things. One of the things I find interesting about japanese (that I've learned so far) is that when you are ready to tell someone you are interested in them romantically you "confess" to them. This confused me at first because in English, a confession is a religious ritual or an admission of guilt. Not a declaration of love. I was trying to figure out why these characters in the stories I read and watched felt guilty about admitting they like someone till it dawned on me that I needed to think of it as an admission of love and I wondered why I never thought of it like that before.  I also like that in Japanese the word "predator" is spelled with the kanji for "catch" and "eat" and "person" and shows up in romance stories when the character who is being chased starts talking about being scared to be eaten when the chaser shows their lust for them. I was confused about why they were suddenly talking about eating and being eaten when they weren't necessarily talking about sex till I saw a reference to the kanji and looked it up. Then I understood. And if you are wondering, one of the words for "animal" is spelled with the kanji for "move" and "thing." I appreciate kanji more as I learn them. Anyway, thinking about the way the japanese do love made me realize other languages do express different types of love. I had been thinking society as a whole lacks the words to talk about different kinds of love, but nope. It's just that those words don't really exist in english. It's not common for us to talk about agape versus romantic love. We just say "love" and then use whole paragraphs to make distinctions. But English has lots of words for "kill". Guess that means that to english speakers fighting and killing is more important than loving. It's kind of annoying. We need more words for love.

APRIL 9th: Energy Shift - likely shift into a new wave of Persistence collectively and personally, though it may be matched by those who amplify a stance of Unchanging.

This.  🤦‍♀️
On one hand, you have efforts to help others affect positive change - like how calm, peaceful, and cheerful it was at the vaccination clinic I attended yesterday.

On the other hand, certain other people in my life are just actively looking for reasons to be angry these days, actively looking for others to blame, and coming up with all kinds of crazy conspiracy theories to justify both.  

 

They seem to get such an adrenaline rush from their anger, I regularly find myself thinking "Will you PLEASE stop and listen to yourself?"


Of course, all the conspiracy theories are somehow tied into Canada's vaccine delivery efforts.  

And nobody spreading the conspiracy theories has ever offered any evidence / proof beyond "my gossip-loving friend says..."  

Never mind that the "friend" is never involved AT ALL in any aspect of vaccine research / development / procurement / delivery / booking appointments / giving injections... 🙄

pointlessness and lack of direction. Even though I had a direction in mind (specifically regarding my next writing project), all my old doubts and insecurities have been resurfacing. Reading this, I realized that it is my job to choose and commit to my direction. It was such a relief to recognize what was going on and how to address it. 

yes yes!!! 

 

i logged in just to say this too! woke up definitely feeling that energy shift and had a huge voice journaling breakthrough when i asked myself why i really want to go in certain directions vs why i’m telling myself i want to go in those directions. the latter of which was causing negative pole Perseverance feelings early this month and late March...old feelings of doubt and insecurity and purposeless resurfacing and knocking me out along with the Nexus recovery lol.

 

i feel so much lighter and excited and most importantly, CAPABLE(!). really looking forward to giving this positive pole of Perseverance a go since i’ve decided i’m going to keep heading in the directions that bring me joy...even if/when i face internal and external obstacles. because i must 🤷🏾‍♀️ also, perseverance is apparently one of my essence’s favorite overleaves and what my entity comes to my essence to guidance for so...time to tap into that!!! 🔋🔋🔋🔋

 

also, my spirit team put this song in my head as i was about to hit post so sharing it here too hehe

quick Paint composition. today's mood swings, or maybe how I am feeling since the past week. mostly due to my family's situation and the toll this pandemic is taking on all of us. anyways, all will be ok 💜 in the meantime, feel it to heal it.

 

lots of rest, selfcare, patience....and love!!!

PSA for anyone who needs it -- reread the energy report if you feel like crap!!

 

April has been weird. I've been going from feeling optimistic to feeling lost and drifting, then back again. I decided to look up the April dates of note yesterday and found it really helpful to reread the negative pole of Perseverance and realize that's how I felt -- pointlessness and lack of direction. Even though I had a direction in mind (specifically regarding my next writing project), all my old doubts and insecurities have been resurfacing. Reading this, I realized that it is my job to choose and commit to my direction. It was such a relief to recognize what was going on and how to address it. 

 

 

 

An update on what I wrote on Friday -- I'm not sure what happened, but since later that day, I've been feeling fantastic and have a renewed sense of purpose and inspiration. Once I committed to my writing project (and to not putting pressure on my writing to make me a living), I started seeing the book I'm going to write -- about overcoming blocks to creativity -- and my brain has been running overtime fitting all the pieces together from all of my experiences and studies. I'm so excited to work on this for the rest of the year (approximately), and I feel like I'm finally doing what I was made for -- studying what I love, piecing together a comprehensive structure of a subject based on evidence from different disciplines and experiences, and teaching it to others. It reminded me that I've always felt the most alive when I'm learning something new and gaining mastery with it, not necessarily doing something with it over and over.

I just finished WandaVision, and I cried so hard over the last episode. That is such a bittersweet quote "What is grief if not love persevering".

Just checking.... Has anyone else experienced a time warp of recent...? My sister-in-law's birthday was 3, maybe max 4 days ago. I've meant to call her, so i've kind of... kept an eye on it... ahem.... Well, her birthday is the 6th of April. If i wasn't actually sitting in my bed, i would have just fallen off my chair when i noticed today is the 15th????? Whaat?? At least 5 days just completely vanished somewhere? I admit i'm not the best with time in general, but this is just really weird, and, so i'm just checking..... 😏😶

For those of you still iffy after the energy shift, I thought I would share this article I read about the cynic attitude since it is a theme for this year. I've honestly felt it's presence more so than perseverance with the energy shift but I suppose perseverance is a great way to sort through the contradictions the cynic attitude presents so we can aim for a more active ever evolving intelligence in our lives.

@Bogi, I love this quote. My mom's friend wrote this quote in her sympathy card and I wondered where it came from. 💖
