Received a message from PL and call from SB about them receiving reply messages from Sensei. How wonderful!! PL even told me one of the member couldn't hold back her tears when she receive this news from Sensei. Truly feel Sensei has never and will never miss anyone out when we seek him.. A great mentor that is so compassionate to all his fellow disciples.
Met YC, D, CH, CL, and the rest of the Carpentry Group at canteen. Chat with them regarding Sensei's message to them on preparation for tomorrow night's performance. Hope they will start to seek Sensei in their lives too.
Read Sensei's essay "Facing the Past, Embracing the Future". About how should Japan face the fact that the misery inflicted by Japanese militarism on people of Asia during WWII, Sensei wrote:
To make a sincere accounting of historical realities and reflect on past misdeeds is hardly "masochistic" or self-denigrating. It is, rather, a courageous amd honorable act.3 Oct 2008
