I am humbled and grateful to in any way help spread Vince’s message.  A while back we featured his first video -Angel of God Hugging the World (our title not his :-) ) and now I am moved almost beyond words to publish this follow up.

After the Darkness

After the darkness
After the storm
After the long night of sorrow
There is a new life
There is clear thought.
There is a hope for tomorrow
When the pain is too deep for tears
When it hurts as though you are burning
There will be cleansing
There will be love
When peace descends, peace descends…
That is when you will be learning
Dry your tears
Remember there’s no separation
You are me
I am you
We are God
It is true
You are the light of the world
I am the light of the world
I am the messenger
You are the key
We share a gift that will set us all free

After the windfall
After the rain
After the thunder is silence
There is a new day
There is new breath
There is an end to the violence
When uncertainty feels like a chain
When the strain is beyond comprehension
There will be flickerings moments of truth
an insight to site into ride into a new dimension
Dry your tears
Remember that there’s no separation
You are me
I am you
We are God
It is true
You are the light of the world
I am the light of the world
I am the messenger
You are the key
We share a gif that will set us all free
The wonder is that there is always a mystery
The answer is waiting if we really want to see
If we can let go, let go, cross over the bridge to the fire
With a heart that’s burnt clean
With nothing to hide
The truth will unfold
And will not be denied
You are me
I am you
We are God
It is true
You are the light of the world
I am the light of the world
I am the messenger
I am the messenger
Only the messenger

    My name is Vincent Marx, and I currently live in Tokyo as a teacher and writer. Thanks to Evolution Ezine, my life took an interesting turn in December of 2010. It was on Evolution Ezine where I saw Juan Mann’s original FREE HUG video (http://www.juanmann.com/). I guess you could say I was inspired, because less than two weeks later I had done my own FREE HUG event in Shinjuku. Then, I quickly learned how to edit my own videos.

    I had been doing FREE HUG events for only about three months when the terrible earthquake and tsunami hit Japan. I was wondering what I could do to help, and I was thinking that life was somehow calling me to spread compassion through FREE HUG events. I wanted to go to Tohoku and give everyone there hugs. It was actually my boss who gave me the idea to “collect hugs” from other areas who had experienced disasters in the past. He sent me and two of my coworkers on a weekend trip.

    As I woke up on the morning of the trip, I kept asking myself what song I should use for the video. Well, in the subway, the first song that I heard on my mp3 player was “Angels” by my friend Beverly Graham (http://www.beverlygraham.com/). I knew right away! It was the perfect song.

    We traveled to Hiroshima, Kobe, Osaka, and Nagoya (all cities that have experienced a disaster) and “collected” hugs and messages to “take” to Tohoku. I joined a group called Ganbaranba, and in May and again in July, I went to Ofunato (one of the cities in Tohoku that was almost completely destroyed by the tsunami) to deliver the hugs and messages that I collected.

    Beverly sent me more of her songs, and I listened to them over and over again. Finally, I chose “After the Darkness” because it seemed to fit perfectly with the video clips from my trip to Ofunato.

    Ganbaranba is a group of people who volunteer their time to help in the recovery efforts by making and serving Japanese noodles. They have welcomed me as the only “non-cook.” While they prepare and serve noodles, I go around and share the messages I collected and pass out the little picture books that I wrote (https://sites.google.com/site/vincemarx/english-education-for-chil/). That’s what I’m folding and handing out in the video. Of course, I also help the cooks as much as I can, and I plan to go with Ganbaranba every chance I get.

    The next trip to Tohoku is tentatively scheduled for around August 20th. On this trip, I will take my FREE HUG sign with me (as well as my messages), and I will do actual FREE HUG events in the shelters. I will need everyone to send me positive energy and courage, so that I might step beyond my comfort zone and spread love and compassion to those who may need it the most.

    Before the earthquake and tsunami, I had the idea of doing a FREE HUGS for WORLD PEACE event and getting video clips from all around the world. That project was put on hold, but now I have started to work on it again. I want to compile the hugs from around the world into one video with “world peace” as the theme. Then, on International Day of Peace, which is September 21, I would like to get people to do FREE HUGS for WORLD PEACE as a world-wide peace demonstration. Already, there are two cities in Portugal and three cities in Brazil that have decided to participate.

    It looks as though Vince is making things better for the Japanese people. They look like grateful hug receivers. Thanks for the video.

    Really could use a hug if anyone is willing to send me one.
    My Dad died last Friday and today my Mom turned on me in a way that leaves me totally hurt and baffled.
    Thank you
    Blessings

  8. [...] Do you remember Vince?  He is the one who collected hugs to bring to some of the areas in Japan that were seriously affected by the Tsunami.  You can follow his story here…. After the Darkness [...]
