We continue hot dry days. But, when we open all windows and doors, unconditioned by air conditioners and fans, we can sit in peace and quietude, enjoying birds’ singing in wholly wholesome nature.
People celebrate Tanabata (usually written:七夕Shikiseki: Seventh Eve) on the 7th day of the seventh month for Weaver and Cowherd stars (Vega/Altair) reuniting across the Milky Way. People write their wishes and aspirations on small slips hanging on bamboo.
What are our aspirations? We aspire to reunite with our true original nature, the wholly wholesome world, the true self, not conditioned and enslaved by money, matter and power, fortune and fame, Mammon and Mars, etc.
Otherwise we are doomed to destruction. When we settle in our original true nature, dharma dhâtu, truth realm, nirvâna, no karma wind, we are in holy harmony and happiness with true penetrating peace and practicing prognosis.
