With all your heart.
Be one with Kami.
Kami’s blessings begin within
Hearts grateful and caring,
I’m not entirely sure what’s happening lately, guys, but asks seems to be getting eaten left and right or they’re just not sending. This is kinda bizarre. I apologize! I opened my inbox, and I saw a bunch of messages from people that I’d not gotten any notifications for. :(
Currently, Ash is in the process of trying to find a job so that she can send out these books!! The last many months have been a seriously difficult time for me, but things are finally getting a little more stable. Maybe sometime I’ll write about it, because I really felt like it was a faith experience. There was a lot of pain and sadness involved, but as I come out of it, I’m starting to see a clear picture.
I’ll answer all the asks as soon as I get the chance to gather my brain and think about what I need to do!!
Now you can hear what space itself sounds like – and it’s like the Dawn Chorus of birds singing in spring interspersed with deep bass pulses from the sun.
Andrew Williams used data collected by satellites and spacecraft to generate the incredible sound you would hear if you tuned a radio in to outer space.
The most compelling recording is the “Dawn Chorus” of electrons hitting our upper atmosphere.
They sound like starlings tweeting above a bubbling brook, interrupted by the sun’s pulses.
As a person fascinated and in love with our Universe around us, and also as a Konkokyo believer, this really resonates with me.
To me, Kami-sama’s body is the universe, and Kami-sama is great nature itself.
Hearing the sound akin to a forest with a heart beat, even if it’s generated….is a little comforting. It’s quite interesting. Click the link to hear the sound. What do you think?
