Death is creation, reunion with God, and the mystery of the twinkling of an eye. When the soul returns to the original fountain of life with its memories, it will mix with the many memories of various beings and be born again as a drop of water. At that time, the former personality will be gone, and it will become a piece of someone else's soul, whose name will be unknown. Thousands, tens, or hundreds of millions of years from now, when all reincarnations are complete, we will all be welcomed equally into the great light. There will be no loneliness and no suffering. I still believe that if we just keep moving forward silently, even in difficult times, we will someday reach the nirvana of eternity.

死は創造であり、神との再会であり、瞬く間の神秘です。魂が記憶と共に命の原泉へ還った時、様々な存在の数多の記憶と混ざり合い、再び一滴の雫として生を受けるのです。その時、かつての人格は既になく、名も知らぬ誰かの魂の欠片となるでしょう。何千年、何万年、何億年後か、全ての輪廻転生を終えたら、皆等しく大いなる光の元へ迎えられます。そこにはきっと孤独もなければ苦悩もありません。困難な時もただ黙々と前だけを見据え歩みを進めていれば、いつか悠遠の涅槃に至ることができると、私はまだ信じています。
