The nature’s flow is the life of nature

Last March, when thousands of Japanese people died suddenly due to tsunami, I felt the futility of life with the feelings of loss and regrets. The book’s content was rather different from my usual thinking about life and it felt unfamiliar and somewhat shocking, but it helped me to self-reflect on my busy life filled with greed. This book pleadingly and earnestly states that the life I live currently is false and a dream; while living, I should wake up from the dream and live in the true world, instead of the dream world. I don’t understand the contents of the book completely, but I keep reading this book because I feel the genuineness of the author’s message that one must wake up from a dream and must not live in a dream world.
