Am I crazy?


Most likely yes.
For a long time already I refuse to work for Chinese companies, because I am under the impression that the Chinese are liars and thieves – they prove it globally on a daily basis (I wrote several times about “Chinese quality parts” in my Trek bike!) and on national TV proudly announce their acts as heroic deeds in the name of their motherland.
Since the American people have recently chosen to make a delusional psychopath King of America and that king (together with his billionaire buddies) has now declared war on life on planet earth – which includes the life of my four children! – I chose to recline work coming from America in my PERSONAL choice of NOT supporting people who try to kill the planet.
(Anyway, working in this industry for over 30 years has shown, that rates offered by American companies are the same like those offered by companies from Vietnam, Malaysia, India etc. Therefore I have the greatest trouble imagining that AMERICAN translators living in AMERICA can make a living on those slave rates.)

By reclining work offers from China and America I probably hurt myself more than anybody else. But knowing that these people are destroying the planet AND are enemies of freedom … I cannot bring myself to work with a clear consciousness for them. In this way I am also trying to prepare myself for the questions my grandchildren are likely to ask 20-30 years from now …

So, probably I AM crazy.

 

Usually I add one of many quotes I have on file to mail inquiries, like the following from Thomas Jefferson:
“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.
If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation,
the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property
until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”
Thomas Jefferson, 1802
(• Maybe “banking institutions/banks” should be replaced by “Trump and his billionaire buddies”)

往診 ・・・

開業している鍼灸師なら何方でも時々往診するでしょう。

しかし、

先日お電話頂いて、相手の母親が「肺の病気を患っている」から***お灸****の先生を探しているとの事。どんな病気かと問い直た所で肺気腫と肺癌と言われた。どちらも治らない病気だと説明した所で、それが承知していると言われたが、往診してくれるかと聞かれた。私は一人で仕事しているから往診は先ず治療院に来れない人に限らせ、そして昼休み、夜や休日(緊急以外)しか出来ないと応えたが、取りあえず住まいは何処かと聞いたら、頂いた返事にびっくりした:東京。

東京に私より遥か優れている先生が大勢いるし、先ず近くの先生を頼むべきですので、此方の出番はないはずと説明した。

しかし、近くに***お灸****してくれるの先生を探していたが、いずれも「お灸はやらない」と断られたから、ネットで検索すると「代田文彦」先生の本に出会い、代田先生に頼もうと思ったが、先生は既になくなったから、「弟子」を探したそうです。それで私の名前が出たそうだ。(私も検索してみたが、そのような繋がりは何処にも見つからない!)

代田先生は「弟子」を取らなかったが、代田先生の教えに沿って治療を施す者ならば、現在東京で開業している多摩川病院の先輩が適切だと薦め、何人分のリストを患者の送信した。最終的結局私にお願いしたいとの事になった。

代田文誌の本にも所々で出てくる:数時間汽車(当時は未だ「電車」がなかった)を乗って往診しに行き、患者の傍にいながら治療し、その家で泊り込み、そして患者を救った。私は文誌先生に全く及ばないでしょうが、大先生も患者のためにそのような長旅を惜しまないなら、私のような下っ端の三流職人は「文句」を言う資格なかろう。

しかし、患者の自宅付近に本当にお灸してくれる鍼灸師が(殆ど)いないようでしたら・・・実に情けないお話になる。伝統的な素晴らしい鍼灸診療を金儲けのため肩凝りや腰痛患者に鍼を刺し、十分電気を掛け「チン」と言う流れ作業に置き換えたのでしょうか。もし本当にそうであれば(私は何処にも出かけない田舎者ですので、都会の事情は全く知らない)、がっかりだし、とても悲しい!

勉強会その2・・・

先日「学生相手」の勉強会について「おしゃべり」した。
以前から妻に責められ、他にも勉強をしたい人を相手にして、そのような「勉強会」をすべきだと。
方々下記のような「セミナー」が開催されているが、新米の給料(?)では参加が厳しいを考えて、若い先生方がかわいそうにも思う。そう言う意味で色々と悩みながら一度でも声(手)を上げてみようかと思う。
ただし・・・! 2-3念ほど臨床経験あれば、技術も知識も私のものを遥かに超えるに違いない。経験のある先生が私のやることみれば、すぐにでも私は無知無能な南蛮人だと明らかになるでしょう。
私は「正しい鍼の刺し方」知らないし、「正しい知識」など一切ない。
技術は三流、知識は出鱈目。
そのような状況で、どの「流派」にも属しない私は無法地帯で「適当」に治療するのみです。
出鱈目だから人によって「新鮮」に感じられるかもしれない。

やるとしたら2人や4人 - 此方の治療院を使うと想定し、ベッドは2台しかない - がお互いに治療をし、私はそばで見て、場合によって手を取って「案内」する。その間色々なお話をする。
もし何方がそのような「勉強会」に興味あったらご連絡下さい(HPに書いてあるメールアドレス)。(計画/企画は出来たら希望者にやって貰いたい)。
参加費はどうしたらよいかが良く分からないは一人1-2000円かな・・・

ベンツ乗る人は他人を気にする必要ないよいだ

20170421115554

先日治療院の近くにこのような風景見ました。
写真の右側にあるトラックが先にそこに止まって、荷下ろし作業中だった。それなら分かるし、文句もない。
所が左側のベンツのスポーツカー(女性ドライバー)は後に来て、郵便局に用があったようだ。当たり前のようにトラックの向かい側に車を止めて、事実上道路を一車線になるように封鎖してしまった。

ベンツの生産国ドイツでも「ベンツを乗っている人は特別優先権を持っている」と言う表現は諺なみです。
そのベンツのドライバーはやはり、「多数の人間に迷惑を掛ける事に興味ありませんわ」と思っているだろう。

少々宣伝・・・

A little self-promotion
昨年所謂下記のリンクで行ける「口コミサイト」に登録しました。
Last year I have registered at the “word-of-mouth” site found at the following link:
https://www.shinq-compass.jp/salon/detail/2390/

何人の患者がコメントを書いて下さった。もしかしてそれが参考になるかもしれません。
Some patients were so kind as to write comments. Maybe they could serve as “advertisement” for my clinic …

小田原城と桜

小田原城と桜

Odawara cherry bloom

休診日の4/13はお天気も良くて突如「お出かけ」を決心し、小田原城に行きました。
行って良かった!
広い敷地内に桜は満々開でした。100%パーフェクト。参考まで老夫婦が写っている写真も掲載します。
帰り道に温泉も入り、家に帰ってワインを飲んでお休み。

半日の事ですが、そのような気楽な行動は子供が全員家を出た今30年ぶりに出来たような気がします。

Trump supporter? – May I have a word …

Well, as a supporter of Trump you endorse his doings, right? Right!

Broadcasted interviews show people stating “give the man a chance”, or “he is doing a fabulous job”.

Naturally, these people are entitled to their opinion/belief/behavior.

So am I.

As such, I would like to question the legitimacy of some of his actions.

Start with the “less important” ones: his declaration of war on the planet.

It is no secret that he is clearly opposed to environmental protection and has publicly called climate change frequently a hoax in spite of the overwhelming evidence to the contrary (=delusion). Lately he made the incredibly wise decision to put a person in charge of the environmental PROTECTION agency, who is an outspoken opponent (enemy) of such protection. Prurit, Trump and their billionaire buddies are interested ONLY (like in “only America first”) in a few billion dollar desperately needed extra pocket money a few top executives will make. I very much doubt that any ordinary worker will see any benefits from this policy.

The agenda therefore is: Pollute as much as possible. Go and kill the planet – and in doing so the future of mankind.

But since he is such a wonderful guy, that is alright, right? Right!

http://time.com/4703569/trump-budget-epa-climate-change/
“We’re not spending money on that (-> environmental protection) anymore,” White House budget director Mick Mulvaney said during a press conference on Thursday. “We consider that to be a waste of your money.”

Trump’s delusional “vision” that climate change is just an invention of people, who want to slow down the economy (what exactly does that mean?) means, however, he and everybody who is supporting him endorses the goal to kill the future of the children, grandchildren, their children and grandchildren …… for countless generations to come. Right? Right!

If it were possible that you could choose to pollute “America FIRST AND ONLY” … I would say: go right ahead, be my guest.

Unfortunately, every 6-year old knows, that is not possible. All the dirt and dust you sanctioned to create will affect the entire planet = mankind as a whole. And NOBODY – not even Trump, who seems to think he is the ruler of the world – has any “right” to do that.

(and once things start to fall apart can do anything about it; his dirty Harry approach: “you do as I say or I blow your head off” does not work with mother earth)

What you are about to do WILL affect also my children and grandchildren. I don’t like that idea! If I get just half a chance, I will gladly pick up a gun and shoot Trump and his buddies. He has just converted me – and probably a LOT of other people on the planet – to “terrrosim”. Maybe he should send over one of his firing squads so that I can be “fired” (upon).

I am working in the field of medical care. And there is one thing I can assure you of.

In case of violation of the laws and rules of nature, this nature does NOT offer any mitigating factors, grace periods or other special treatment. Only certain punishment!

Right now mankind as a whole is for MOTHER earth something like the fleas on a dog. Its presence starts itching. And mother earth, or mother nature, WILL react to the violations of her laws and rules. No exceptions. It does not matter what any of those top idiots like Trump, Xi, Putin etc. say. Or what YOU, the Trump supporter, wishes to do or see to happen.

So .. MOTHER earth WILL give the naughty boy Trump and everybody else a little spanking. For sure. 100%. However, as opposed to the spanking administered by a basically loving mother, a “little” spanking by mother earth may easily wipe out our entire species. Unfortunately a lot of other species will be dragged along into hell. Who will take responsibility for that? Trump? You? Unlikely.

But that is alright, right? Right!

Fuck our children.

Fuck our grandchildren.

Fuck other countries / people.

Fuck the planet.

Fuck the future.

(to use the eloquence of American culture)

Trump will not be around to see this wonderful scenario, since he is already a delusional geriatric who will not live that much longer. I wonder how his currently 10-year old son will evaluate his father’s actions in 30 years.

How about you? If you live another 30 years and have grandchildren, how exactly will you justify your actions today to them, when coastal areas have flooded, vast areas turned into deserts, countless species become extinct and temperatures have soared so high, that crops will wither and cause billions of people to starve to death?

Problem: you cannot just go and buy a new planet in the convenience store at the corner once you have destroyed this one. In case you have not yet noticed: there is only ONE globe = habitat to many species. Humans are just one of the many and definitely depend on many other species.

Or does that not concern you, since you are living in this “great” country America, where the (so-called?) laws of nature have been abolished by presidential order and thus do not apply.

No need to explain anything.

No need to worry about anything.

Right? Right!

Do the people standing behind Trump and cheering him on really/earnest believe, they can get away with this? Unbelievable.

I remember asking my father when I was young, why he did not do anything to stop Hitler and his insane policies at that time.

Now I dread the time when my children and grandchildren will question my actions in relation to the global climate. I am trying very hard NOT to be a burden on the planet.

How about you? What are YOU going to tell your children?

But who cares, right? Right!

There is so much RIGHT here, it seems Trump supporters voluntarily limit their field of vision to a very narrow strip of the right-sided field of vision of the right eye only. Naturally, that makes is difficult to see the “big picture”.

Please forgive me rambling around like this, but this is something I wanted to say. There are MANY things more I would like to say, but I leave it at this for the moment. Even if there may not be any next time.

Einstein once said:

A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be.
