It is remarkable news when spirituality enters politics and the news media covers it. In this CNN report, Japan’s First Lady Miyuki Hatoyama is shown in a video interview where she states that her and her husand, Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama, “eat the sun”. Miyuki Hatoyama goes on to say that she travels out of body and has visited the planet Venus.
In 2010, TIME magazine’s “Time 100” elected Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama as No. 6 among the 100 most influential people in the world. Can the future of humanity be a sun gazing culture once again?
CNN: Japan’s ‘Spacey’ New First Lady Miyuki Hatoyama ‘Eats the Sun’
The wife of Japan’s next prime minister claims she’s been on a UFO. CNN’s Kyung Lah reports. September 4, 2009.
TOKYO, Japan – Miyuki Hatoyama is unlike any first lady to hit Japan: A divorcee, a former actress, and an outspoken woman who demands equality from her husband.
Its the outspoken part that is generating some unusual press for the soon-to-be Prime Minister of Japan.
In a book called Very Strange Things Ive Encountered,” Hatoyama indeed writes a very strange thing.
While my body was asleep, I think my soul rode on a triangular-shaped UFO and went to Venus. It was a very beautiful place, and it was very green.
In an interview on a Japanese talk show, Hatoyama makes another unearthly claim, saying she eats the sun.
Like this, like this, she said, gesturing as if eating something from the sky. It makes me feel good and my husband does it too.
Hatoyama also claims that she knew actor Tom Cruise. Not in this life, but in a prior life.
I know Tom Cruise was Japanese in a previous life. I know that I was with him in the previous life. So, when I meet him and say, Long time no see, he will understand what I mean. Isnt it cool?
These comments might be brushed off as an eccentric ex-actors musings if she didnt have the ear of the most powerful man in the worlds second largest economy.
The DPJ, led by Yukio Hatoyama, pledges to shake up Japans politics, from economics to international relations.
Japan, for now, appears more amused than alarmed. While the Western press rants on about the odd ramblings of Mrs. Hatoyama, the Japanese press is brushing off the comments as peculiar but harmless.
Comments in YouTube under the clips from the Japanese talk show were divided, between people writing Mrs. Hatoyama was crazy to who cares?
Ex-Ministry of Foreign Affairs official Tomohiko Taniguichi calls the first lady fun for now.
Its actually helping her husbands popularity, says Taniguichi. Whether a first lady who believes in UFOs affects world policies – we just have to wait and see.
