I recently read the book "Knowing.


Hello everyone, I'm looking forward to reading this article.

I want to read! I feel like I have to read it! I am washi artist Hiroya and I buy books as soon as I have a gut feeling that I need to read them, so they just keep piling up.

So today, I would like to introduce a book.

It is a new book by Mifuyu Ando, whom I introduced in last year's blog, "Practice Not Connecting.

I personally found it interesting to read it together with her previous book, because I could see how the author has changed from her previous book to the present, and how she thinks and lives her life.

I was a little disappointed that the content of the book was a little less penetrating to me than the previous book.

...Now, let me introduce the contents of the book.

Knowing" Author: Mihuyu Ando

  • Working hard toward dreams and goals is a noble thing, and it is a beautiful thing. However, it is not always the path that leads to happiness. Many people set their dreams and goals and start running after them without knowing themselves deeply. Often, this is not the path they should be on.
  • It can be said that we are making some kind of preparation for the future without even realizing it, or that we are still preparing for "that day" that will come someday. All of life is a period of preparation. We are building a vessel to receive "Knowing" every day so that anything can happen at any time.
  • The nature of "fear" varies from person to person. First, it is important to determine what the fear is. In many cases, what we fear hides something important and valuable to us. Worrying about money is because you have lived a solid life up to now, and being afraid of criticism on social networking sites is the flip side of your desire to express yourself.
  • I believe that the words, "What will happen next?" are magic words that make it easier to pay attention to information and announcements flowing from the future. Let's chant these words at every opportunity and stay as innocent as a child.

I believe that the book is the encounter itself, so please read it if you are interested.

We will be opening a store at the Nihombashi Takashimaya Department Store from the 24th, but nothing has been done.

I'm feeling a sense of urgency.

Well, I've never been able to get everything ready, and it's business as usual. I am sure that this time is the most unprepared I have ever been.

I am sure that this is the most unprepared I have ever been, but I look forward to your visit.

Thank you very much.
