Solitude is something like a door returning to true self, without which originality cannot blossom. – When we cannot feel connection with society, we will rediscover connection with nature
We have often known from experience that the world is drastically changing. I think that many people must experience great stress as the old system is breaking down. Nothing is more important than keeping inner peace in such a situation.

Geniuses often prefer solitude because they know that something new cannot come out unless the mind is turned inward. As many people are afraid of solitude, they cannot get away from common knowledge even at the level of mentality. They give top priority to reading between the lines to seek for connection with others because they don’t want to be ostracized.

However, solitude is something like a door going back to true self and originality cannot come out without it. Don’t be afraid of solitude and accept it as it is. You will understand that it is just another form of being yourself. When you cannot feel connection with society, you will rediscover connection with nature.

When you move your body, feeling connection with nature, it becomes moving meditation. If you master it, you will be big enough person to become god.

When you gaze at your mind, feeling connected with inner nature, it becomes meditation. Inner awareness will lead you to enlightenment.

[Sleep is washing of brain]
According to last week’s “Science”, during sleep (especially during REM sleep) the circulation rate of cerebrospinal fluid increases fivefold, which seems to wash away waste substance in the brain.

[Secret of longevity is inactivation of brain]
According to today’s “Nature”, when cerebral activity is low, longevity gene is activated and longevity is extended. Mouse and eelworm are the same. This might be the principal regulating living world.
(At least from the viewpoint of brain circuit, “living a long mundane” seems to be correct.)

In other words, we must sit in Zen meditation.

[Sleeping and Forgetting] It is well known that sleep is important for memory consolidation. According to “Cell” published this morning, sleep is also important for forgetting of experiences. If specific brainwave involved in forgetting is consolidated, we get more forgetful.

[Forest Bathing] According to “Scientific Reports” published this morning, those who contacted with nature for more than two hours in the past week have good health or high well-being compared with those who didn’t. Good health or high well-being became the greatest with six hours of contact with nature. It seems there is no further gain in case of more than six hours.

According to “Nature Human Behavior,” a scientific journal published yesterday morning, young adults continued 6 weeks of mediation training with a new smartphone application program in which they direct consciousness to breathing and they have improved attention and memory.
