Fukushima Radiation is the silent rain of Japan

Silent Rain is what we call Radiation in Japan….

And it’s good to think of that when we are arguing whether Fukushima’s radiation will arrive like a train on time at 9am in Los Angeles train terminal on October 21st of 2014, or some of it early, some of it later and some of it whenever…

Those are the cycles of life. Endless and non time specific.

So for the silent rain here is:

“I had a discussion with a great master in Japan,
and we were talking about the various people
who are working to translate the Zen books into English,
and he said,
‘That’s a waste of time.
If you really understand Zen,
you can use any book.
You could use the Bible.
You could use Alice in Wonderland.
You could use the dictionary,
because the sound of the rain needs no translation.'”
-Alan Watts




Or as another great one said:

“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret;
it is only with the heart that one can see rightly;
what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
-Antoine de Saint-Exupery
