Do you feel warm lights surrounding you?

Do you get sense of relief?

It’s a peaceful time, isn’t it?

Our future will be loving each other, respecting each other, taking care of each other.

We don’t need to rush.

Be ourselves.

Do what you have passion for.

That leads to our happy world.

José Mujica is Uruguayan politician who served as the 40th President of Uruguay from 2010 to 2015. A former guerrilla with the Tupamaros, he was imprisoned for 12 years during the military dictatorship in the 1970s and 1980s.

I didn’t know him till yesterday.

Yesterday I opened Youtube, the title “ the poorest president in a world” in Japanese which attracted me. So I watched the youtube, more and more videos about him.

While serving as 40th president of Uruguay, he donated around 90 percent of his $12,000 monthly salary to charities that benefit poor people and small entrepreneurs.

In his interview:

“I’m not poor. Poor doesn’t mean having few things, rather, it means having infinite desire, never satisfied, even with having more than enough.”

“We are born naked, and we die naked.”

“Try to enjoy your life.”

“The miracle of life is maximum happiness.”

”Unfortunately life has a limit. But Love doesn’t.”

I believe that Love, smiles, happiness are contagious.

Let’s do it.
