Mr. Kanamori’s “Children Full of Life”

Mr. Kanamori’s “Children Full of Life”

One of my internet sources of Inspiration is a site called Karmatube.com.  I have blogged about these folks before, and I have to do it again.  Because I subscribe to their site, I receive a Karmatube Video of the Week by email every Friday morning.

I try to go through every video each week, but sometimes they stack up, just as my email does.  Last Friday, however, I took the time to view the video that week and was deeply rewarded and refreshed for having done so.

The Karmatube Video of the Week for Friday, January 15th was actually the first of a series of 5 documentary shorts about a truly special teacher, Toshiro Kanamori, who teaches his fourth grade students in Kanazawa, a town northwest of Tokyo.

Mr. Kanamori teaches, besides normal curriculum, some of the grand themes in life:  love, compassion, patience, teamwork, dealing with grief and most importantly, the capacity to be happy.  He has his children write their inner thoughts each day in their journals, and they in turn share what they have written.

In the course of sharing, these children learn to listen to each another, to respect and to support one another.

Singing Siyahamba with the World

I’m speechless. I’ve just had an extraordinary experience with an amazing hymn. This video pretty much says it all. This past week, I had the great honor to participate in the world-wide Annual Meeting of the Christian Science church. And this year, we ALL had the distinct opportunity to feel an incredible sense of global unity through music. Check it out here on youtube!
