Katsuko Yamamoto, called "Kakko-chan", is a teacher at a school for gifted (challenged children) in Japan.

She encounters the wonderful characters and powers of the children through her daily life with them, These are "big powers"-invisible; yet they support us and they let our life live. This was the encounter for her to know the preciousness of life.

A child remembers and says "The pink swaddling clothes I wore after birth hurt my skin!". Another child sees the change of season and language as colors.
Being with those children, Kakko-chan came to feel that "They must know something important-the truth."

In the film, she talks about her exchange with children.
Additionally, there are comments from the authorities of archaeology, medicine and other sciences. This story is going to tell you that disease and impairment (handicap) has meaning.

Everything and everyone exists becuase it is necessary. It is all right for everyone "to be" in different way and each person is important and precious in life. This heartfelt documentary represents the big and vigourous power to let our life live and gently unlocks the secret of our lives.

Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month January 2010
Painting byCliff Stelover
“You have endless energy only whn you are working for the good of the whole - you have to stop working for your little selfish interests. That's the secret of it. In this world you are given as you give.”

Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month January 2010

“You have endless energy only whn you are working for the good of the whole - you have to stop working for your little selfish interests. That's the secret of it. In this world you are given as you give.”
Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 44

I also would like to share some of the quotes from the Peace Pilgrims's site below.


* We can all spend our lives going about doing good. Every time you meet a person, think of some encouraging thing to say - a kind word, a helpful suggestion, an expression of admiration. Every time you come into a situation, think of some good thing to bring - a thoughtful gift, a considerate attitude, a helping hand.

* There is a criterion by which you can judge whether the thoughts you are thinking and the things you are doing are right for you. That criterion is, Have they brought you inner peace? If they have not, there is something wrong with them - so keep trying.

*If you love people enough, they will respond lovingly. If I offend people, I blame myself, for I know that if my conduct had been correct, they would not have been offended, even though they did not agree with me. "Before the tongue can speak, it must have lost the power to wound."

*To those who feel depressed, I would say: Try keeping your surroundings full of beautiful music and lovely flowers. Try reading and memorizing thoughts that inspire. Try making a list of all the things you have to be thankful for. If there is some good thing that you have always wanted to do, start doing it. Make a meaningful schedule for yourself and keep to that schedule.

*Although others may feel sorry for you, never feel sorry for yourself - it has a deadly effect on spiritual well-being. Recognize all problems, no matter how difficult, as opportunities for spiritual growth, and make the most of these opportunities.

*From all the things you read and from all the people you meet, take what is good - what you own 'Inner Teacher' tells you is for you - and leave the rest. For guidance and for truth, it is much better to look to the Source through your own 'Inner Teacher' than to look to people or books. Books and people can merely inspire you. Unless they awaken something within you, nothing worthwhile has been accomplished.

*No one is truly free who is still attached to material things, or to places, or to people. We must be able to use things when we need them and then relinquish them without regret when they have outlived their usefulness. We must be able to appreciate and enjoy the places where we tarry, and yet pass on without anguish when we are called elsewhere. We must be able to live in loving association with people without feeling that we possess them and must run their lives. Anything that you strive to hold captive will hold you captive, and if you desire freedom you must give freedom.

*The spiritual life is the real life - all else is illusion and deception. Only those who are attached to God alone are truly free. Only those who live up to the highest light they have find their lives in harmony. Those who act on their highest motivations become a power for good. It is not important that others be noticeably affected. Results should never be sought or desired. Know that every right thing you do - every good thing you say - every positive thought you think- has good effect.

*All people can be peace workers. Whenever you bring harmony into any unpeaceful situation, you contribute to the total peace picture. Insofar as you have peace in your own life, you reflect it into your surroundings and into the world.

*That which is received from without can be compared with knowledge. It leads to a believing, which is seldom strong enough to motivate to action. That which is confirmed from within after it is contacted from without, or that which is directly perceived from within (which is my way), can be compared with wisdom. It leads to a knowing, and action goes right along with it.

*In our spiritual development we are often required to pull up roots many times and to close many chapters in our lives until we are no longer attached to any material thing and can love all people without any attachment to them.

*You cannot leave a situation without spiritual injury unless you leave it lovingly.

*If you want to teach people, young or old, you must start where they are - at their level of understanding. If you see that they are already beyond your level of understanding, let them teach you. Since steps toward spiritual advancement are taken in such varied order, most of us can teach one another.

*Physical violence can end even before we have learned the way of love, but psychological violence will continue until we do. Only outer peace can be had through law. The way to inner peace is through love.

*Concentrate on giving so that you may open yourself to receiving. Concentrate on living according to the light you have, so that you may open yourself to more light.

*Sometimes difficulties of the body come to show that the body is just a transient garment - that the reality is the indestructible essence which activates the body.

*After you have found inner peace, spiritual growth takes place harmoniously because you - now governed by the higher self - will to do God's will and do not need to be pushed into it.

*Nothing threatens those who do God's will, and God's will is love and faith. Those who feel hate and fear are out of harmony with God's will and are likely to have difficulties.

*All difficulties in your life have a purpose. They are pushing you toward harmony with God's will.

*There is always a way to do right!

*What we suffer from is immaturity. If we were mature people, war would be no problem - it would be impossible.

*Of course I trust the Law of Love! Since the universe operates in accordance with the Law of Love, how could I trust anything else?

*For Light I go directly to the Source of Light, not to any of the reflections. Also I make it possible for more Light to come to me by living up to the highest Light I have. You cannot mistake Light coming from the Source, for it comes with complete understanding so that you can explain and discuss it.

*Judging others will avail you nothing and injure you spiritually. Only if you can inspire others to judge themselves will anything worthwhile have been accomplished.

*Never think of any right effort as being fruitless - all right effort bears good fruit, whether we see results or not. Just concentrate on thinking and living and acting for peace, and inspiring others to do likewise, leaving results in God's hands.

*You cannot change anyone except yourself. After you have become an example, you can inspire others to change themselves.

*In a conflict situation you must be thinking of a solution which is fair to all concerned, instead of a solution which is of advantage to you. Only a solution which is fair to all concerned can be workable in the long run.

*Your motives must be good if your work is to have a good effect.

Aren't they wonderful?

Message from Echan

Message to Australians about Earth Pilgrims

On the occasion of presenting this film outside of Japan for the first time I would like to take note of the fact that the Aboriginees have the longest tradition of sacred pilgrimage, walkabout, on Earth. It might be no coincidence then that this vast treasure trove of true pilgrim culture, Australia, has called me to present this film.
As our entire planet faces more and more challenging demands on it ( and we inevitably all are involved) it might be a good time to check out the core message of Earth Pilgrims. Please join us to firmly ground this message in the ancient Earth of Australia.

Echan Deravy's vision - The East West Merging Point

Here you will find information on the activities of one man who has a rather unusual mission in Japan. In fact it appears so unusual that we are hard pressed to pigeonhole it. Perhaps then it behooves us to look back at where this radical communicator has come from. In doing so we'll get a more comprehensive vision that will do justice to over three decades of evolving creativity. The key word linking his entire Japanese sojourn would undoubtedly be 'Transformation'.

First let's look at the transformations he himself has gone through. That forms the basis upon which his current 'message' rests. If nothing else, Echan Deravy is a disciple of change with a deep faith in the power of metamorphosis.

September 1974: After five years of trans planet travel and adventure Echan arrives in Japan with the intention of entering a zen monastery at age 22. He entered zen instead and left the monastery behind. For the next 15 years oriental philosophy was the central focus of his life and involved balancing the raising of a family (through university teaching positions and a unique acupuncture center) with martial arts practice and the complex study of oriental medicine. By the time he left Japan in 1989 he had acquired a Japanese level one proficiency certificate, an acupuncture and moxibustion license to practice issued by the government and a fifth dan ranking in the way of the bow-oft referred to as zen archery. He had completed a cycle that was dominated by study and internship with some of the last true masters of Japan's waning traditions.

It seemed like the school of rough knocks. Japan can appear a very strict environment to do anything in. The rules of social life go back a long way-long before people like Echan showed up in fact...

The next 12 years saw Canada unfold in his vision. In the pristine environment of Vancouver island a Corporation came into being. Japan Consultants Inc. was to pioneer business links between Canada and Japan through real estate consulting. As president of the corporation Echan was responsible for all aspects of the overseas investing via both private and corporate transactions.

Extremely valuable first hand experience was gained in the particular sensitivities of that quixotic character-the Japanese businessman. Canada's CBC channel featured the work Echan had done to bring investors to the economically strapped town of Kimberly in their television special 'Venture'. 15 years as a student and a teacher as well as a doctor of oriental medicine had now transformed into a short but powerful burst of activity as an international wheeler and dealer. Then, theJapanese economy crashed.

So did Echan. He fell hard as did many others both inside Japan and around the world. An inflated economy was likened to a bubble. It burst. The resulting stress and overall disintegration of a very promising business career propelled Echan to transform yet again. By 1993 he and his wife had co-written and published their first book to be written about consciousness, evolution, the couple and individuation as well as the now rather well known prophecies concerning 2012.

A new career as a writer, public speaker (in Japanese) and worldwide adventure and research/ seminar facilitator began. Over the next several years 37 worldwide and completely amazing workshops had taken Japanese to Peru, Mexico, Egypt, Europe, Ireland and Scotland as well as England, Italy, Hawaii, Australia, Costa Rica and Greece. He had literally created a new genre. Never before had the concept of showing up at a specified location on your own (as opposed to an itinerary and flight plan all booked by a travel agency) to begin a study of Mayan sacred sites or climbing the Andes to get to Machu Pichu been proffered to the discriminating Japanese traveler. It was a huge success. Attention to detail, painstakingly learned at the point of a needle literally had metamorphosed into this. But there was to be more.

Though living in Canada Echan was soon required to be lecturing all over Japan and thus crossed the Pacific over 60 times in ten years to deliver leading edge concepts to the growing audiences from Hokkaido to Okinawa. His ability to communicate with pioneers in diverse fields in the West and then to introduce those concepts to Japan kept him far ahead in the changing times. Finally after one plane too many Echan got the message to return to live in Japan now that the children were adults. This is where it really began to get interesting!

He was the first to bring remote viewing training to Japan and to teach it to hundreds over the next nine years in Japanese. Long before crop circle books were being written he was in the 'field' with Japanese actually feeling the crop transformation up close and personal. Whether it was diving with cetaceans or exploring ancient temples his adventurous spirit drew literally hundreds to participate in world seminars and literally millions to hear his message via the internet and television.

Since 2002 his corporation Maranatha Japan has done translation, interpretation, publication, and media appearances as part of his mission to assist Japanese in becoming sovereign individuals capable of making theor own informational choices. The ongoing central work of public speaking has resulted in much more high profile creativity. Audiences around Japan now look to Echan for hints about what is likely to be happening in the next few years as human consciousness obviously has to evolve if we are to survive. I mean if this is not obvious then there would in fact be no market for Echan's unique brand of transformative communication. He is a 'talking shaman' who takes the job very seriously yet evokes a great deal of laughter at his events.
