I try to walk without depending on car. I often use public transportation in Japan, because the system in Japan is very puctual and efficient. I walk on steps without using automatic escalator, which trains my muscles and benefits my health. I am healthy and love feeling nature!! I have writing my experiences in Amazon jungle.

"Amazon Paradise" ~Let us Revive the Paradise on Earth!"~

Following Inner voice

 

After graduating the college, I started to work for Panasonic Corporation.

Before starting working, the company sent two books written by Mr. Konosuke Matsushita, founder of Panasonic. It was an assignment from the company to read them and write what I thought. I read the books and got very impressed by the philosophy of Mr. Matsushita.

 

The section I was assigned in the…

First Bell Ringing

 

When I was seventeen years old, I happened to put on a radio at one evening. Then, vivid and rhythmical voice jumped into my ears. I was fascinated with the feeling. Something woke up inside of me.

The program was for learning English conversation. The rhythm and feeling of live English conversation fascinated me.

 

I was not a student who studies steadily and hard in school. However, I changed from the…

Wish for Peace

From my childhood, I always had strong wish that peace would be realized in the whole world.

 

When I was a child, I happened to listen to one piece of music and I cried hard.

The music was was “Finlandia”. At that time, I did not know what kind of message given  in the music. However,  the moment I heard the melody, I started to cry. I was surprised to see myself and did not know why I was responding that…

Amazon Paradise

 

By working in the middle of Tokyo, the message I received from Amazon jungle became stronger to me.

Those messages became more meaningful to me as time goes by.

In this one year, it finally became clear to me what the messages of Amazon really meant, and I have been thrilled.

I want to write the detailed story in Amazon here, to see the meaning of them deeper.

I wish I could reflect them to me who is in the fast moving society right…

Aloha,

Keith Rose here.

I’m organizing the ‘350 Honolulu’ rally to take place on Saturday October 24, 2009 from 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. at the State Capitol.

On that day throughout the world, rallies will be held to raise awareness of climate change and to establish a goal of 350 parts per million of CO2. This movement is in preparation for the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen December 7-18, 2009.

This 350 ppm number is The Most Important Number in the World and is a tangible and appropriate goal that our leaders need to have in mind going into the Conference.

We want to make an iconic image from Honolulu and what I had in mind is to form a large human ‘350’ in front of the Capitol Building. I want to have this assembled for photo at 3:50 p.m. If we have enough people we’ll form a human lei around the building.

I have the permit for the rally and want your support and participation for this event. As an environmental leader, please spread the word to your circle of influence.

Please see www.350.org. Thos organization and movement is founded by Bill McKibben.

I look forward to hearing from you and let’s make this the most significant environmental rally to date!

Sustainably yours,
Keith Rose
