Even if he ate, he could not absorb the nutrients.
Nor could he get rid of the toxins from his body.
His weight dropped to almost half of what it was before.
As he continued to lose weight, he become like a man waiting for death.
In these circumstances, where there seemed no hope of a cure, what helped him was “feelings of thanks.” Without hating one’s lot in life or getting bitter, his parents and friends continued to believe and pray for his recovery. As long as he lived, he could feel gratitude for the things around him. When he came to know that, he came to spend his days feeling grateful. Almost as if the demon of ill health noticed that, his symptoms began to improve.
In the words of the head doctor: “This is a miracle.”
He was to make a full recovery.
If we can live our days filled with gratitude, we can know that the world is one filled with miracles. Music is a present born from grateful days. It is a present for everyone. This feeling of gratitude is what he composes on piano day by day.
