For me, the sea is like a mirror.
(I mean,) Our thoughts or actions come back to us.
For exemple talking of sports,if we train a lot ,the sea will
bring us the same amount of joy as of our practice.
On the contrary we will pay for our lack of respect.
Speaking of environment it is the same, if we keep the sea
clean we will be able to have tasty fish.
But if we pollute it we will eat contaminated fish.
The sea is a place where human beings thoughts and actions
are just reflected as they are.
And,the Japanese word for Nature is 「shizen」written into 2
Chinese characters "shi" and "zen" ,
"shi" also carries the meaning of oneself so to
damage Nature is to harm oneself.
When human beings go to the sea they really are tiny living
Even being rivals we have to help one another.Showing mutual
help allows reaching a higher level .
Oceans make men's bonds and teach human beings about Nature's
They tie people with people, bond people with Nature and the
oceans are linked into One Ocean.
I hope that the message of「One Ocean」 will reach and find
an echo in the heart of a lot of people.
I wish you will find your own 「One Ocean」.
