Story of The New Works

@ A convincing work is not made at the beginning of this year. I had very few good works this year. Before firing I offer sacred sake and salt on a household Shinto altar and clap my hands together twice and pray for safety firing and masterpiece work. However, the result is annihilation or commonplace work... Praying to the God doesn't reach at all. Where is my God?

@ Mine cave-in accident in Chile, All 33 Chile miners freed in flawless rescue. A miner admitted "I have been with God and with the devil. I fought between the two. I seized the hand of God, it was the best hand. I always knew God would get us out of there." I also believe in him and the god, and seized the hand of God.
