Inga Ouhou (What gose around comes around)

I'd like to use some four-character idiomatic compounds Japanese as a title sometimes.
Their English meanings are following.

Today, I picked 因果応報 (In Ga Ou Hou) impulsively, 
Because it comes Buddhism spirit, 
I am desperate for inner contentment.

My ideal of the daily life is to start with a cup of plain hot water in the morning,
do Yoga and meditation,
work then socialize or read and write in the afternoon then cook vegetarian meal for a supper and take a hot bath with pinch of salt and read in the bath tub and go to bed before 10 o'clock in the night.

So far, I get only 50%, so compensation is required. 

Inga Ouhou means all facts are results of what you have done.
It is a different from Karma, it is called 『業(Gou)』in Japanese.
Karma is an action, what you do, say and think.
Be careful, thinking is a part of them.

Karma leads result, these happenings are called Inga Ouhou.
And Karma is also carried over from past life or created from your intention of life purpose as if it were muscle training.

And you get involved in life purpose of your family, friends and others to clear your Karma or for just helping others.
You might think being used is a sacrifice, though
If you focus on your life purpose, you can recognize the difference between sacrifice and hearty assistance.

Every appearance caused from too many factors to call 'Inga Ouhou',
we should not judge people because it is almost impossible to conclude.
And certainly it is not our business.

Folding Keyboard Ryudo

Today is Aquarius new moon.
Write down 10 wishes on the paper or note.
Handwriting is key.

This is folding keyboard, the maker is Ryudo. I was interested, but hadn't had long years. Because I have laptop. But we don't bring computers daily, do we?
So I started to think, if I had that, I might write more often... Before buying it, I investigated which keyboard was the best as there were so many kinds.
First of all, It has to be light, otherwise, it will stay at home.
And thought of the place where I mostly would use... it would be on a train, not a cafe as I commute long hours every day.
So it has to be small and quiet.  I don't want to bother others.
If I use a keyboard on my bag when I seat, my iPhone needs to place to stand, Ryudo is compact, ideal typing and has a stand. It's not very strong but enough to hold my iPhone 7 plus.
One thing I cared was that Ryudo was battery powered not chargeable. So I looked over all other keyboard, but still Ryudo seemed desirable.
It was good buy.








-The book is a structure- Walter Crane

The 19th-centry English illustrator Walter Crane  (15 August 1845 – 14 March 1915) was one of the first artists to produce illustrations for full-color "toy books".

 "The book is a structure," he emphasized the importance of designing book.


"This beautiful house is a structure of lines and colors," Crane often compared books to buildings. 

He was particular about the design of entire page, and the illustration artist's arm was not one illustration, but the spread page itself as well as the book itself. Think of it as an architect who designed a house, considering the overall balance of the two-page spread by the power of design.

Crane was concerned with the formative beauty and decorative nature which the document originally had. That beautify the page, cooperation and harmonious collaboration of harmony in the perfection of the illustrator decorator what is was thought to produce a beautiful book.
