Where is your passion?

I traveled with Terrie Symons who channels Ashtar 

for 2 weeks, this summer.


I interpreted her/his words.


When I interpret,

I am just a TUBE to change English into Japanese,

or Japanese to English.


And, I usually don't remember

what I interpreted.


However, 

since I repeat same phrases

many times,

some of the words which Ashtar said

struck my heart.



Where is your passion?

What makes you happy?


I am a counselor,

and I sometimes ask the same questions 

to my clients.


Many of my clients say

"I don't know"

"I have no idea."

" I don't know what I like to do."

or

"I thought I liked 〇〇, but 

 these days, I don't like it any more."

"I liked ○○, but I don't want to do it any more."

AND

they want to know 

how to find their "like" s.


I personally think  that

it takes while to find what you really like,

because 

I did some experiments to find what I like.


I used to wonder what I like.

Many people told me to do what I like

when I had difficult time.


I didn't know what I like.

I spent most of my time for my work,

for my mother and father.

I liked English, so I became an English teacher,

but I didn't like working in a big system,

and I was tired of working which includes English.


If you are not sure what you like,

it needs time to gain the feeling that you like something.


If you are not sure what you like,

your sense of "like" is numb.


so you need rehabilitation.


My first experiment was for 1 month.

I decided to choose what I like to eat.

Ramen, hamburger, cake, ice cream,

potato chips, etc.

Whatever I wanted to eat, I picked up

for each meal, or for snacks.


Then about a week later,

I noticed that the food I chose was not always what I liked.

I mean,

when I chose, I thought " Oh! I like it."

but

when I ate it, I felt unsatisfied, dessapointed.

I was not happy.


I started to notice that 

I chose what I like to eat 

based on my knowledge and experience.


For example,

Last time, when I was tired,

 Udon was really delicious.

I am tired now, so I like to choose Udon.

Chocolate cake looks good, but

apples have more vitamins.

So, I like to eat apples.



Then, gradually, I started to feel

how I feel when I eat what I like to eat.


What I like to eat strongly depends on 

my condition of the day.

So, it means,

if  I liked cheese very much one day,

I didn't like cheese at all next day.


However, by doing that experiment,

I could learn how I reacted

when I had something I like.


This experiment was really interesting.


If you are not sure what you like,

do some experiment.

Try anything you want to do.

Then you can find out

what you like, and dislike.

And you will know how you feel

when you find something you like.
