A Summer Trip with a Hidden Angel of Death
I was thinking about life and death sitting in a train. And, a decent old man with a summer hat and mourning dress-like dark clothes was sitting on an opposite couch, reading a book.
I was thinking that God should send an angel of death to a man destined to soon face his own death prior to his death. Then he has to stand before God for the final judgment. Most of people would be condemned to the hell. Subsequently Satan should appear to such people, requesting their souls since they must have sold their souls for wealth and happiness in this world to Satan. I wondered if Satan would rather appear before the last judgment or immediately after their death.
I was sitting in the train for almost one and a half hours. Finally, the decent old man got off the train. I was thinking how anyone can design elementary particles, electrons, and photons (light) so that they form atoms, molecules, chemical compounds, rocks, stones, clouds, plants, animals, and finally human beings that have souls working above the material world. Only God can design such physical conditions to create living things and human beings eventually.
In the train, almost every passenger was using smart phones. Only children and parents were happily talking to one another, since they are in summer holidays. Therefore, a great amount of electric magnetic fields and radio waves were flying, floating, and vibrating in the air of the car of the train where I was sitting. Then I started to think how can our brains produce souls and spirits to imagine God, Heaven, angles, and other spiritual entities with belief and confidence.
Our material brains must be a kind of smartphones. On the display of a smartphone, we can retrieve a picture of, say, Mt. Fuji, through Internet connection. It can be live images of the mountain being taken by a video camera set around Mt. Fuji and being sent to the smartphone in real time. Mt. Fuji is a real thing. But its image on the display is not a real thing. However, we can check a real state of Mt. Fuji in real time. This scheme can apply to Heaven and our brains. Heaven is a real entity, existent in the spiritual universe, and we can see it in our brains like a smartphone showing Mt. Fuji.
Watching landscapes along a railway line out of the window, I thought that the summer always comes every year while many people are dying every year. However, I didn't see any ominous things in this journey, though a train delayed for 13 minutes in a 2-hour return trip to home.
When I got back home, a TV program presented a documentary about the new volcanic island in the process of building up, covering and absorbing adjacent Nishinoshima Island in the Pacific Ocean 1,000 km south of Tokyo. A scientist said it was not an ordinary process of creation of a volcanic island. It is a rare case that the process of creation of a volcanic island resembles that of creation of a continent, since this volcanic island contains light rocks like a continent though volcanic islands are usually made of heavy rocks. Accordingly, this new volcanic island would not sink into magma to disappear in the ocean eventually. Japan is expected to have a new territory in the Pacific Ocean near the Ogasawara Islands.
The volcano of this new-born island looks like a miniature version of Mt. Fuji, though Mt. Fuji does not emit smokes like this new one. However, a million years later, present Mt. Fuji might be gone after a big eruption, while this new volcano becomes 4,000 meters high to be a successor of Mt. Fuji for the future Japanese. Indeed, it was undersea volcanic activities one million years ago that paved the way for building up of Mt. Fuji, though it was 100,000 years ago that Mt. Fuji was actively and decisively formed.
Finally, it is not unlucky to live and die in a country where Mt. Fuji exists, I reckoned.
In addition, I saw a little angel like a small child in the train, and she said, "Where are you going?" watching me walking an aisle in a car. I said in the mind, "I read the Bible which indicated a place."

Mar 8:22 And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and besought him to touch him.
Mar 8:23 And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought.
Mar 8:24 And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.
