Trees and plants grow by its own nature. Humans are the only one who “think” and “wish” the way to live. No matter how hard humans try, we are powerless to the great Law of the Universe. So why do we continue “thinking” and “wishing”? Why is it that we worry and suffer? I find this simular to my calligraphy.  There is no end, there is no giving up. The way to fallows the law of the universe is to throw away all our vanity, personal minds, and rigidity to keep a meek and humble heart. I believe  calligraphy is one of the guidance to find this way.

草木は努力しなくて咲き、人間だけがこうでなければならないと考えて生きている。どんなに頑張っても宇宙法則は変わらないのに、何故人は考え、頑張るのか。人間の悩み苦しみとは、何なのか。これで良しということもなく、完成ということもない。虚飾や私心を捨て去り、剛強を捨て、柔和でへりくだった心を持つことが宇宙法則なのだ。それを諭した一つが書の道ではないかと思う。
