On 1st January, 2020, two birthday parties were held at the exactly same time around Beelationship: the one was held in Japan and another one was in the U.S.A.
At each party, people were listening to the birthday elder’s life story and feeling into who he/she was.
That was one of the richest moments of the birthday parties.
Celebrating both elders’ birthdays on the same day and at the same time was such a special and rare occasion.
What was happening?
Both elders are ones of people who made a big impact on Beelationship.
The director of Beelationship, Hachi, feels that what they brought into the world, for example the strength of motherhood or how to follow what is going on deeply, were “blood” in her body and for Beelationship.
(She once experienced that “blood” in her body was frozen, she became stuck easily.)
After she lost her words and listened to a deep sound for a while, feeling like bowing respectfully, what popped up in her mind was the Joseph’s coat of many colors somehow.
(Maybe it was connected with that the embroidery work of colorful mat was reflecting back again and again lately around Beelationship.)
She was not sure to be deep enough to understand but it might be telling this:
Let’s play together more following our interests! Play will help us to feel into other perspectives in an unexpected way. Then we can take time to listen to our hearts deeply and see what to do clearly. It will be the practice for holding a variety of perspectives even when some perspectives might not be accepted easily.
Knowing elders life stories and feeling into who they are mean a lot.
That might shake your soul to remember why you are here.
(Hachi had to be careful not to burn her finger while she was baking an apple pie for the party.)
Happy birthday, dear elders, thank you for sharing your life stories and who you are. Also thank the organizers for preparing for the wonderful birthday party.
