As One Network News December 2022

Snow has started falling on streets and fields around Japan, after colored leaves were dancing in the cold wind. Such beautiful scene reminds us that we are living in winter. How quickly the season is passing.
Lots of people, around the world, seemed enthusiastically watching the football games on TV. While watching the World Cup games every four year, I once again wonder "What are national borders? What is a country? I think about it.
It may seem ridiculous to other living creatures to see humans drawing lines on land that originally belonged to no one, arguing about who owns each. Originally human beings are like a family living on this Earth that belongs to no one.
We all want to live together in harmony, sharing our wisdom. Such a wish seems to be in everyone's heart.
This month, we will bring you another report on the As One Network, which is working around the world to realize such a wish.

The typhoons have passed. While many people are still working hard to recover from the massive disasters, our sympathies are with those who affected by the disaster. At the same time, we suddenly realize that we are now in the midst of autumn, the season of harvest. The buzzing cicadas had been replaced by the cool singing of bellbirds, and red dragonflies are playing over the fields after rice was harvested.
Indeed, the mother earth has given us free present of its infinite abundance. Having received such a gift, how can we make the most of it and pass it on to the next generation?
The earth continues to nurture living beings by giving them abundance without asking for anything in return.
We humans were born from the same planet, originally "one".
But people and people have been repeatedly fighting and opposing each other for a long time.
Why is this? Human beings are not like this, we think.
Again, this month's As One Network News will be a report on the activities of people in various regions, who believes in the possibility of human beings and wishes for their happiness.
