[ 2007/6/24 ] Spirit of service
I went to the church in Yotsuya today. A lot of Filipinos had come there. Anyway, I sometimes think in the church. because I feel odd to them every time.
Is Filipino a race who has the spirit of service for someone? To be brief, "Do they make giving to someone?" This is a simple topic to Filipino who lives in Japan.
They are often expressed like this.
"They work sacrificing oneself for the family. In a word, they overflow in the spirit of service."
I think that this word frankly describes about them. The purpose of their serving is family's, relative's, Friend's profit and help. And, the close relative based on them is an object. They give it for the profit within the range, and a conception any more is a little. (When Filipina marries the Japanese, Filipina hopes for passive participation to Japanese parents. However, they keep helping their family.)
In a word, they are satisfied with status in the relative. at same time, they are satisfied with thanks from the relative. If such a satisfaction is not returned, do they give it to the family?
Moreover, they try to avoid the event thought to be disadvantageous as much as possible. However, they do not hesitate to ask for help to someone. It is scenery seen well mutually even by Filipino.
That is, free service without the return is not done easily. I think so.
I question you here.
1. Recently, did you give anything to someone?
2. What are love and the service that you think about?
Next, How about a Japanese case?
Though a Japanese range of the family is very narrow... Free service to the family is natural. This might be the same also even in Filipino.
About the spirit of service, a moralistic education is often done in the age of childhood. for example, Parents say to their child. Become a helpful person for someone. Moreover, such the one is also in the proverb. "Nasake wa hito no tame narazu(Finally, giving to someone benefits you. Therefore, give it to someone without expecting the returns.)"
Sometimes, It is said that the Japanese is gentle. It is because there are a lot of people who give it to someone. Keeping taking it from someone is shameful for the Japanese.
This difference produces an international weakness of Japanese People. The Japanese keeps giving it to people who think the deprivation from the person to be a success.
When the race is different, the idea is different. Japanese and Filipino's attitudes are different for serving. It is sense of values that exists in race's basis. Therefore, the behavior of Filipino and the Japanese is different even for the Catholic. It is related how to they are interpreting god's teaching.
The country where the race doesn't exist together is few now. If you live in Japan, it is important to understand a Japanese basis. And, it is also important that you do just like the Japanese. Because you did the decision to live in Japan. You can return to the Philippines if the Philippines is good. "When in Rome, do as the Romans do"
There is a spirit of service such as "ON" and "GIRI" in Japan. There is no conception only of taking advantage of someone and something there. It becomes a selfish person only by own profit.
[ 2007/6/21 ] Rabies
Japan also includes, rabies becomes popular again in Asia. The cause is dissatisfied of the inoculation. Especially, a young child etc. are dead a lot.
It is not an exception in the Philippines either. The inoculation is not often done though it is a family dog. The inoculation is not usually done for the stray dog.
And, the person who has purchased health insurance is a little. So if the baby is bitten by the dog, it is serious.
First, the hospital that can be treated is limited. Secondarily, the body doesn't recover only by the diagnosis and treatment once.
The salary of one month is lost in the diagnosis and treatment about two times. So parents who do not have savings cannot help the baby.
However, there is too no money needing if the dog is inoculating first by them.
It is important to forecast the future. An unexpected accident can be evaded by the preparation. We should become wise. Please have information and prepare worst, for your important person.
