Naoto Matsumura is the only human who now lives in Fukushima’s 12.5-mile radiation exclusion zone in Japan.

At first he fled the radation-riddle area, but he returned soon after to feed his animals.

Matsumura then realized that there were thousands of other creatures that needed to be fed, as well. The 55-year-old says he knows the radiation levels are dangerous but refuses to worry about it.

“They told me that I wouldn’t get sick for 30 years. I’ll most likely be dead by then anyway, so I couldn’t care less,” he said.

Seems like it’s always a fine time to center into the everyday  magic of kindness, simple things (a.k.a. what Dorothy Day called ‘the little work’), and other ‘revolutionary acts’.

See what stirs for you …

Boiling mud hole at the Sulphur Lake
from TripAdvisor.com

From what I’m hearing, seeing around me, and experiencing myself in various ways, it sounds like a lot of us are feeling the psychic-energetic rollercoaster these days.

Many now are feeling the influences of the steamy fiery trine in cahoots with the very lunar, watery, highly sensitizing, boundary- (and structure-) dissolving Pisces-Neptune frequencies, too, where the pre-fab, ‘should do’ agenda goes right out the window.

There are days like this, and plenty of them in these ‘transformation times’ of ours.

If I’ve done my usual energy ‘tracking’ and clearing approaches to clear out the funk, and the funk (or fiery anger) is still there … well, maybe it’s just one of those days when it’s wisest to flow with and open to the mysteries of the energy that’s present.

Aside from my usual repertoir of energy management ‘tools’,one thing…
