It's simple. There is hope. It's YOU!
The corruption-free people's politician Taro YAMAMOTO knows what he is talking about.
The answer is inside you. You have got the power. You are not powerless. You can use your power. All you have to do is learn how to optimise the way you use your power. Trial and error. Learn from mistakes. We can make progress even when we feel we completely failed. There is hope. It is within us. Let us live and learn! Don't allow the unreasonable and ilogical "fear" overwelm you. Remember that "fear" is the strongest feeling that affects all of us. That's why the horror films can be the blockbusters all the time. Recognise that when "fear" is disturbing you. Realise that "fear" is in fact within your head. Try to calm down and look around. Take a deep breath and practice a bit of yoga poses, always followed by Savasana (the Corpse Pose) = the total relaxation lying down with your limbs wide spread, focusing on your quiet breathing in, and then very slow gentle breathing out [ideally taking twice as long time; when you inhale in 3 seconds, try exhaling in 6 seconds]. Keep calm and carry on. We can do it! We are not powerless! We have friends!
