More Real News from Sendai, Japan

More news from "on the ground" in Japan Many thanks to my source

A family member received this incredible, touching letter
from a friend in Sendai, Japan.

I want to thank you so very much for your concern for me. I am
very touched. I also wish to apologize for a generic message to you all.
But it seems the best way at the moment to get my message to you.
Things here in Sendai have been rather surreal. But I am very blessed
to have wonderful friends who are helping me a lot. Since my shack
is even more worthy of that name, I am now staying at a friend's home.
We share supplies like water, food and a kerosene heater. We sleep lined
up in one room, eat by candlelight, share stories. It is warm, friendly,
and beautiful. During the day we help each other clean up the mess in
our homes. People sit in their cars, looking at news on their navigation
screens,or line up to get drinking water when a source is open. If someone has
water running in their home, they put out sign so people can come to fill up
their jugs and buckets. Utterly amazingly where I am there has been no
looting, no pushing in lines. People leave their front door open, as it is safer
when an earthquake strikes.

People keep saying, "Oh, this is how it used to be in the old days when
everyone helped one another."

Quakes keep coming. Last night they struck about every 15 minutes.
Sirens are constant and helicopters pass overhead often. We got water
for a few hours in our homes last night, and now it is for half a day.
Electricity came on this afternoon. Gas has not yet come on. But all
of this is by area. Some people have these things, others do not. No
one has washed for several days. We feel grubby, but there are so much
more important concerns than that for us now. I love this peeling away
of non-essentials. Living fully on the level of instinct, of intuition,
of caring, of what is needed for survival, not just of me, but of the
entire group.

There are strange parallel universes happening. Houses a mess in some
places, yet then a house with futons or laundry out drying in the sun.
People lining up for water and food, and yet a few people out walking
their dogs. All happening at the same time. Other unexpected touches of
beauty are first, the silence at night. No cars. No one out on the

And the heavens at night are scattered with stars. I usually can see
about two, but now the whole sky is filled. The mountains are Sendai are solid
and with the crisp air we can see them silhouetted against the sky

And the Japanese themselves are so wonderful. I come back to my shack
to check on it each day, now to send this e-mail since the electricity is
on, and I find food and water left in my entranceway. I have no idea from
whom, but it is there. Old men in green hats go from door to door checking to
see if everyone is OK. People talk to complete strangers asking if they need
help. I see no signs of fear. Resignation, yes, but fear or panic, no.
They tell us we can expect aftershocks, and even other major quakes,
for another month or more. And we are getting constant tremors, rolls,
shaking, rumbling. I am blessed in that I live in a part of Sendai that
is a bit elevated, a bit more solid than other parts. So, so far this
area is better off than others. Last night my friend's husband came
in from the country, bringing food and water. Blessed again. Somehow
at this time I realize from direct experience that there is indeed an
enormous Cosmic evolutionary step that is occurring all over the world
right at this moment. And somehow as I experience the events happening
now in Japan, I can feel my heart opening very wide. My brother asked
me if I felt so small because of all that is happening. I don't. Rather,
I feel as part of something happening that much larger than myself.
This wave of birthing (worldwide) is hard, and yet magnificent.

Thank you again for your care and Love of me, With Love in return,
to you all, xxxx.
