“We Are Eran People” A Message from the Era to All People Living on Earth

 

We are “Eran People.” That is, we are all travelers who board a common vehicle of the time and travel. The earth also boards this vehicle of time. Everything which exists in this world travels along time. Moreover, the earth physically travels in the universe.

Why does time proceed? It is because people established a standard of time such as one second, one minute, one hour, one day, and one year, and recognize time. This seems to be applied only to human society. However, this world exists under a cycle. Not only people divided it for their convenience, but also one day is one rotation of the earth. One year is one revolution of the earth. In a cycle with the four seasons of spring, summer, autumn, and winter, plants sprout, bloom, leave seeds, rest during winter for a while, and sprout again in spring. The time proceeds with such a repetition. Therefore, the cycle was not made by humans. Everything else in the world is also bound by this structure.

Now, we are facing a historical turning point in such a great cycle. You have begun to realize such a transition of the era, so you have encountered this message. Now, the global environment and world affairs have faced the peak of confusion. However, the era always continues to move toward the future. Therefore, the current chaos will surely settle sooner or later, and the world will not continue to move forward in this extension. If we are not blinded by our desires, we will see that the era is coming to a dead end, just as the seasons change. Now that we have faced an unprecedented crisis in human history, the era is telling us that we need to transform our attitude.

How should we live in the coming era?

 “The era is a life, has a will, and weaves the time.”

The 21st century is the beginning of “the Eraism.” Those who live “the Eraism” are not controlled by their own desires, and can live freely in the world. “Eran People” are universal travelers.

 “The Eraism” is a new way of living which will replace the conventional ideologies such as communism and capitalism. Communism was supposed to be an ideal world which humans thought of. However, nature was not incorporated into the base of communist society. Therefore, communism has developed with environmental destruction. Capitalism has stimulated human desires, generated competition and disparity, and brought contradictions to nature. So, capitalism has followed the same road with communism. Ironically, an extremely arrogant word such as natural preservation has been created in such a society. Therefore, capitalism will surely mark an end sooner or later. An ideology which emerges after communism and capitalism is that humans are not a main character, but the era is alive and has a will. Then, we humans will be able to reach a level of creating this world with the era.

The future is always unknown, and time always moves forward. Therefore, when we live the era, we always travel toward an unknown world. A destiny we will reach, brought about by the will of the era and the universe. If humans can see their own future, then the era would have to move along with human speculation. However, the era is weaved beyond it.

Looking back on recent human history, it was an era of destruction where human activities did not harmonize with the world. Even if people reflected on it and tried to change the situation, they would just continue to create a society for themselves after all. Their attitude is far from the universal will, which requires completing a world with a bigger frame as an extension of human roles. Historically and universally, humans were not born to create the era with their own will. Each one of us was born and will die, but we are just a part of one life for the whole of humanity and all living beings on earth. Even the earth and the universe is one life, and all of the worlds operated within them are stories.

The main character is the flow of the era and the universal law, which has a will. In order for that to express something through the era, we humans were brought down on earth. Unless we are open to read and understand a story, which will be expressed on the stage of the earth, it is impossible for us to receive the will of the era and live with it. It is said that our ancestor, Homo sapiens emerged on earth 200,000 years ago. Going back further, several million kinds of living beings have existed on earth so far since the first life emerged on earth 4 billion years ago. Out of all, it was about 70 million years ago that Tyrannosaurus swaggered on earth, which is considered “the strongest creature in the history of the earth.”

The era of dinosaurs was a part of the universal project. How big and strong can a creature become? A small and weak dinosaur, which originally had a full length of three meters and a weight of 75kg, expressed the will of the era. Through environmental changes it reached its height as Tyrannosaurus, the strongest creature during the history of the earth, which had a full length of 13 meters and a weight of 6 tons, over 100 million years of evolution. However, they came to an end when they exhausted their resources due to conquering this world, destroying other creatures, and ate each other. After they reigned as the strongest creature in the history of the earth, there was a scene where they killed each other. This figure was the same as modern people. In a current society where wars and conflicts do not cease, humans are like eating each other.

Looking at the history of biological evolution on earth, six great extinctions have occurred in the past 600 million years. The previous extinction occurred about 65 million years ago with the dinosaurs. It is said that there is the possibility of another extinction for living beings in the near future. According to statistics, we can say that we are moving toward an extinction right now. Each extinction occurs for a different reason. 65 million years ago, when a huge meteorite fell to earth, an unexpected ending for the dinosaur era came. Dinosaurs were forced into extinction by the subsequent dramatic environmental changes. But, even if the meteorite did not fall to earth, Tyrannosaurus might have been destined to become extinct anyway by eating off the other dinosaurs. If the earth is considered as one life, humans seem to be cancerous cells on earth. Therefore, considering the balance of the global ecosystem, we can say that such a creature has to be destroyed.

Comparing dinosaurs with humans, humans are given an ability to see the era from the past to the future. On top of that, an ability is hidden within them to understand the structure of the world and even to create the world. In a sense, it is humans that were given the highest ability and the biggest influence during the history of earth. If Tyrannosaurus is the strongest creature during the history of earth, we humans are “the greatest masterpiece.” However, great human ability is like a double-edged sword. If people continue to use it for their egos, they might bring about the next extinction. If they use it effectively, they also have the possibility of bringing a more advanced world, by overcoming the extinction crisis. The universe might require this of humans, to go beyond the lesson of Tyrannosaurus.

10,000 years ago, when humans still led a primitive life, they lived with the structure of this world. Whether they flourished or fell was up to the will of the era. At that time, humans emerged as one character in the history of biological evolution on earth, which interlocks with sunspot activities, crustal movements of the earth, and the transition of the era. In early time, it was a scene of humans who lived naturally with plants and animals without expressing their own will.

However, as Tyrannosaurus evolved to be the strongest creature during the history of the earth, humans have evolved to become a creature with the greatest ability during the history of the earth. It is humans that have evolved with the establishment of the ego. Each individual was given a hope, a miraculous ability and mission of self-realization. Out of all living beings on earth, it is only humans that have wishes and were given an ability to accomplish them. In the past, they have considered gratifying their wishes which came up within themselves as their life purpose, and have been controlled by their own desires.

Originally, living beings were not in a position where they could accomplish their own wishes. However, accomplishing wishes is gratifying desires, and humans have ended up becoming captivated by them. The more humans try to accomplish their wishes and the more their wishes come true, human desires expand infinitely, and their egos become even stronger. Now, such modern people have spread contradictions to the world, and have faced the peak of chaos.

This is a great universal experiment for if such an ability was given to humans, what kind of ending will they face? Furthermore, this is a great challenge for how humans will overcome contradictions, which they have brought about for themselves and this world by gaining such an excellent ability.

Now that the door of the 21st century has opened, the era of a new millennium from the year 2000 to 3000 has begun. We have shifted from the era when humans saw their own possibilities to one when we know who we are in this world and live through the truth of our life’s purpose.

Why does the universe exist? Why does the earth exist? Why do living beings exist? Why do humans exist? And why do YOU exist?

The era has arrived when the earth itself and the whole of humanity will become awakened. This is the beginning of an era when all humans will understand the meaning of boarding the Spaceship of Earth. They will express the will of the era on earth, which is an oasis created in the universe, and a miraculous utopia.

The era is alive and has a will. Originally, we humans stand at a position where we sense the changes of the era and live along with it. Therefore, we do not have to try to create the era with our thoughts.

From this viewpoint, the world is one. Everything moves as one along with the era. This is the true figure of the universe. When people with such a consciousness emerge on earth, their vibrancy radiates in the world. Then, those who resonate with it take action, which will change the world gradually. When more people who resonate with it take action and their vibrancy spreads throughout the world, such a chain of awakening moves the era. The vibrancy of awakening settles confusion in this world, embraces the earth which has been damaged by human activities, and restores the earth as an originally beautiful planet.

Each person’s awakening becomes like waves, which link with each other, and circle the whole earth. It does not have a sound and has no need for power. It is the same as we cannot hear the sound of time when it moves forward. It is also the same as we cannot hear the sound of rotation and revolution of the earth. Therefore, when the era moves, we cannot hear its sound. Please listen carefully and sense the sound of the era. Now, the movement of such a human awakening has begun on earth.

The time has arrived when we release ourselves from the frame of our egos, and live freely in the infinite universe. When our desires and ambitions disappear from inside of us, the universal truth will emerge. Then, we will be able to stand at the most appropriate position which is in accordance with the reason why humans were born. Those who become aware of such a truth read the era, feel its flow, and become “Eran People” who live here and now.

This is a message that the era is telling all people living on earth at the beginning of the 21st century.

A Record of the Konohana Family:

The Story of the Golden God

A long long time ago, even before the earth and the universe were born, there was only “vibrancy”. That was the eternal and perfect existence where everything matched completely without any distortion. There was only God.

God was bored. “I am perfection, so I cannot know even my existence. My perfect existence cannot know myself due to perfection.” God, the existence of only light, could not see what light is.

Then, God divided one perfect body. He created darkness to know what light is, and the earth to know what divine is. He put the imperfect world in a far place which was opposite from himself. Then, time and space were born. In this manner, time and space were to return to the original oneness again.

As a screw of a music box turns, in the journey to return from imperfection to perfection, this world resonates various sounds and creates music. This is one of a long long story.

The Era When Gods Governed the World

2page-3

How long has it been since the original oneness was divided?

Seven gods, the creators of the universe emerged into the world. From there, multitudinous unique gods were born continuously. They tried to act freewheeling, so the Great God of the Earth preached the rules of the mind severely so that they do not disturb the world. The Great God of the Earth is called “Kunino Tokotachino Omikami” and he got on the wrong side of multitudinous gods due to his severity.

“We cannot stand his severity anymore. What can we do?” Multitudinous gods discussed it and went to the Great God of the Divine. “Could you ask the Great God of the Earth to leave?” The Great God of the Divine received the appeal from the multitudinous gods and told the Great God of the Earth. “I am sorry to inform you, but please leave the front of this world at once. However, the time will surely come when the world reaches a dead end someday. Then, please emerge again and rebuild this world.”

Receiving this, the Great God of the Earth resigned into the direction of the North East (called the direction of “Ushitora” in Japanese), and came to be called “the Golden God of Ushitora” since then. This direction was feared as the “the direction of the demon” and had been sealed.

A long time has passed since then. Multitudinous gods continued to act freewheeling during that period. That is why, the current world is in such wild disorder. The world has come where people always prioritize themselves and strong ones beat weak ones. The time has arrived exactly as the Great God of the Divine said, “The time will surely come when the world reaches a deal end someday.”

 

The Birth of the Hana Matsuri
(meaning Flower Festival)

The time had passed and it was about 700 years ago.

Some ascetic monks went upstream of Tenryu River from Kumano to the Okumikawa area, Aichi Prefecture. Then, they began to preach the doctrine of ascetic practices to villagers through songs and dances which were popular in the Metropolis at that time. According to the doctrine, disasters of this world are brought by human sins. When people purify their uncleanliness, they can be reborn into a new self. This is the beginning of “the Hana Matsuri,” a nationally important intangible folk cultural asset which has been taken over in Toei-cho in the Okumikawa area.

During this festival, water was drawn from waterfalls and boiled in a pot at a furnace which is located in the center of the festival site, and some dancers continue to dance around it overnight. Then, gods emerged as rising vapor up from the pot, which comes down on the dancers. When such dancers and the audience dance together, people can interact with the gods, purify their uncleanliness, and receive a new life force. A newly reborn life is called “Hana (flower).”

The Hana Matsuri is held in the coldest time of the year. And many kinds of demons emerge during it. Out of all, the demon leader called the Sakaki (meaning a holy tree) Demon is valued the most in this festival as the one who awakens life forces which have sunk deep into the soil during the cold winter.

In modern Japan, demons are hated as an existence which brings disasters. So, on the last day of winter, on February 3rd, Japanese people say, “Get demons out of the house. Invite happiness into the house” and scatter roasted soybeans. However, in fact, demons come to shine light in the darkness within humans’ minds once a year. They shine light into the spiritual darkness of people who have deviated from the original path, and teach them to purify their minds and return to the original path. But, for those who try not to face the darkness of their minds, demons are disagreeable and the source of disasters themselves.

This Sakaki Demon was the figure of the Golden God of Ushitora who was sealed away a long long time ago.

 

The Third Son Who was Born on May 3rd

%e3%81%84%e3%81%95%e3%81%bf-300x251In 1951, when all of Japan was full of energy during postwar reconstruction, a boy was born in Mino-city, Gifu Prefecture. He was born on May 3rd as the third son, so he was named as “Isami (meaning five, three and three in Japanese).” Later, Isami Furuta became a founder of the Konohana Family and, now is called “Isadon”.

He grew up in a famous family in a local area where his father was a councilperson. He was so shy that he hid his face with a textbook not to be called on by his teacher during class. But, once he stepped outside, he was very naughty. He ran down the terraces with his friends, surrounded by the abundant nature of Mino-city, caught fish in the river, climbed up the roof of the local shrine, and took naps. It was very warm on the roof of the shrine, so it gently warmed his body which became chilled by the river.

Just before he turned 20, the spirit of his grandmother who passed away 5 years ago emerged above his head. He valued his ancestors since he was little, so he thought that she came to him as a guardian spirit. In fact, his job and human relationships brought much better results than his efforts. He married at the age of 21, and started an interior coordinating company with his wife, Ai-chan, in Komaki-city, Aichi Prefecture. At that time, his dream was to increase the number of his shops, earn more money, drive a nice car and have a good life.

 

The Emergence of Buddha

It was at the end of the year at the age of 30. Isadon suddenly realized that the existence of his grandmother who had been always above his head disappeared. Instead, the figure of a 50-year-old black man emerged. “Who is he?” Even if he talked to the man, there was no answer from him.

After the New Year began, he visited a cave at a quarry in Komatsu-city, Ishikawa Prefecture in January. When he looked at an over two-meter Buddha statue, a shock ran through his body. “This is Buddha.” Even after he left that site, the existence of Buddha intensely remained within his mind somehow.

After he came back home, mysterious matters happened. When he sat alone in his room, the golden Buddha came gliding close to him from his back and stopped above his head. How can he describe this figure? It is just precious. It was such an existence. The golden light shined and it was so brilliant that he could not compare it to anything else.

Tears welled up in his eyes. This is what preciousness is. There is such a world. He felt so grateful that he could not stop crying. “But, why? Why did such a precious existence come to me?” He could not stop crying, thinking like this. Such a state continued for three days.

A few days later, when he practiced meditation, a pain between his eyebrows appeared suddenly. He could not sleep at night on the third day from the emergence of the pain, so he just lied in bed. It was so painful that he could not stand it anymore and screamed involuntarily, “Ouch!!” Then, the pain disappeared suddenly, and something like smoke rose up between his eyebrows.

Somehow, he got a hole between his eyebrows. When he shook his head, he heard the sound of the wind. “There is a hole after all!” Then, he showed his face to Ai-chan, and said, “Hey, I got a hole between my eyebrows.” However, she said, “What are you talking about? There is no hole,” and ignored him. When he looked at his face in the mirror, surely there was no hole. However, whenever he moved, he heard the sound of the wind. “What has happened to me?!” He lied down in bed again without knowing what was happening.

Then, a strange thing happened suddenly. The space around him began to be absorbed into the hole between his eyebrows at a furious speed. He screamed in his mind, “Oh my God!” Something began to flow into it at a full speed.

It stopped after a little while, and the hole on his forehead was closed. He got up. Then, he saw a red bean sized small man wearing monk’s working clothes worshiping him earnestly around 45 degrees diagonally downward from view. “Who is he? I have seen him somewhere.” When he thought like this and looked at the man carefully, it was Isadon himself. “Oh, my God! It is me! Then, who am I??” When he looked at himself, it was a giant Buddha.

Then, he came to understand. “I see. The golden Buddha entered me. I was not good enough, so I cannot live with it and was expelled.”

Isadon Can See the Forms of Human Minds

After a period of time, Isadon began to care about people’s names irresistibly. Many names surged into him like flood from one to the next. On the third day, he could not sleep at night, could not stand it anymore and screamed involuntarily at dawn, “Wooooow!” At that moment, a line was drawn between the first letter of the name and the second one. He could see this showed some kind of law.

This is the beginning of “karma reading.” Names marvelously show unique forms of human minds (karma) which are different from person to person with the law of yin and yang.

He went to various houses on business every day, and mysterious matters began to happen there too. Even when he visited a house for the first time, he came to understand the issues of the house perfectly somehow, and could see how to solve them. Then, he came to give advice to people. When he started to talk, what he had never heard of came out of his mouth. It was not his words but the words of Buddha who entered him. Isadon was always outside of himself, listened to Buddha’s words and learned from them.

 

Tell the Truth of the Earth

One day, Buddha said to Isadon, “Practice a 1000 day training.” So, he practiced meditation every day for three years since then. When he meditated one day, he moved out of his body. As if a rocket is launched, he rose higher and higher. Finally, he flew out into outer space.

He looked at the earth with the moon at his back. “How beautiful it is… The blue planet is floating in a cosmic space. It was miraculously beautiful. However, something like keloid is seen here and there on this beautiful planet. They were traces of human activities such as cities and destroyed forests. They undermine the earth like skin cancer.”

A thought of a strong confession came up within Isadon’s mind. “It is me, not someone else that has made the earth in such a state. The seed is inside of all humans. I will tell this truth as the one who has realized the true figure of the earth.” Once he decided so in his mind, he was released from this cosmic space gradually, and returned to his body who was practicing meditation.

After he met the spirit of Buddha, he stopped eating meat and fish. He also quit dressing up. Ai-chan lamented like “We are supposed to earn much money and have a good life, but this is not how I understood it.” His parents were worried like, “Our son went out of his mind.”

However, at the same time, some people said, “There is an interesting person.” Such a rumor spread by word of mouth, and people who wanted to listen to him speak and learn about the mind began to gather. They listened to him speak on the second floor of his shop after work every night. There was a time when he continued to talk for 15 hours straight. Like monks who perform cold water ablutions in fall, they exposed themselves to the words which came out from Isadon, feeling like their minds were purified mysteriously, and returned home.

One day, he asked Buddha, “When people gather like this and an organization is created, will I become like a guru of a new religion in the future?” Then, Buddha answered, “Do not create an organization in the next era. People gather. Gather and talk. The truth will emerge from talk. The next world will begin from there.”

 

“I Feel Painful”

Day after day, it was a continuation of dialogues with Buddha. It was a path for Isadon to deny himself. Egotistic thoughts like “I want to do this and that” came up inside of him. “However, no matter how much I think, what Buddha preached is superior. If so, I should choose that.” While he continued to deny his thoughts in this manner, he was tormented by loneliness as if he would disappear once in a while.

His determination to take this path was firm. Still, he felt painful. He wanted Buddha to understand his pain, so he said to Buddha, “I feel painful.” Then, one word came back from Buddha, “If so, will you quit taking this path?”

Listening to it, Isadon became angry. “There are many people who do not know this precious path and do not take it in the world. However, once people meet this preciousness, who will not take this path? No matter what happens, I will stick to it. But, I am foolish and not appropriate to this preciousness. I feel painful to remove my ego. I just want you to understand my feelings.”

For a while, there was no word from Buddha. Then, Buddha said, “There is no way that you do not understand the preciousness of this path. You must surely know that.”

Buddha always watched and guided Isadon as his father, mother and master. Buddha understood his mind more than anyone else. Isadon was taught to separate from himself and look at himself. Without noticing it, he came to see things beyond his profit-and-loss calculation and intentions. In this manner, he took the path together with Buddha for 9 years since he was 30.

 

Why Don’t You Walk? You Can Walk.

When Isadon was 39, he met two shamans through a customer’s introduction: Sumiko-san who was 12 years older than him, and Ikuyo-san who was 12 years younger than him. After that, he began to visit Sumiko-san’s place. One day he felt Buddha, who should have been always right above his head, became a little far away suddenly somehow, and Isadon thought something was wrong.

When he went to Sumiko-san’s place, she said to him, “Mr. Furuta, now Buddha is telling you like this,” and she conveyed Buddha’s message. Isadon was surprised. “Buddha always talked to me directly, but why does he convey his message through Sumiko-san today? I felt Buddha has become far away for a while now. Don’t tell me Buddha is about to leave me.”

Then, he talked to Buddha in his mind. “Are you going to leave me? I am still like a baby and have no confidence in walking by myself.”

He did not speak out, but he just talked to Buddha in his mind. Then, an answer came back from Sumiko-san. “Mr. Furuta, it is all right. Buddha is not going to leave you, but he finished his role and is going to rise to the divine. He said he is going to watch you from above.”

When he heard of it, he thought, “What I have experienced until now is true!”

Until then, the dialogues with Buddha were always within his mind. When he began to hear Buddha’s voice, he doubted if he might have gone crazy. However, nothing can be born from doubt. Then, he repeatedly tried to remove the doubt, moved forward and encountered a new world which he could not see until then. As a result, he had nurtured the belief.

However, now an answer for what he thought in his mind returned from someone else’s mouth. “My experiences were not delusion. Buddha does exist.” This was the moment when he became able to believe in Buddha from the bottom of his heart. At the same time, finally he became able to get out of the doubt which he held somewhere in his mind for 9 years since he encountered Buddha.

But, now that he could really believe in Buddha finally, Buddha was about to leave him. He talked to Buddha desperately. “I am still immature like a baby. How can I walk this path without you?” Then, the words came back directly to him without going through Sumiko-san.

“You have grown up fully already. It is only you who thinks you are a baby. Why don’t you walk? You can walk.” Now, Buddha considered Isadon as his friend, not his son or disciple anymore.

Buddha rose higher and higher, and became far from him. Isadon was crying, thinking “Please do not go.” However, at the same time, he knew this time would come somewhere in his mind. This time, words came out from Sumiko-san. “Mr. Furuta, it is all right. You have  enough power to walk by yourself.”

 

Encounter with the God of the Sun

Isadon got in a car, and left Sumiko-san’s place. Now that Buddha who was with him for 9 years just left, he thought he will not have a dialogue with a spiritual existence anymore.

The voice continued, “I will protect you from now on.” Then, he thought, “I see. Now that Buddha is gone, I have no other choice but to follow this voice.” So, he said to the God, “I appreciate it.” Finally, the path with Japanese gods began after a nine-year training with Buddha.

 

To the Summit of Japan Before Sunrise

%e5%af%8c%e5%a3%ab%e5%b1%b1%e9%bb%92-624x630It was during Isadon’s 40th summer. A voice said, “Climb Mt. Fuji” which came down to him from the divine. When he asked why, he was told, “Stand at the summit of Japan before sunrise and receive an order.” He had no idea why he needed to climb Mt. Fuji at all. However, he thought, “God said so anyway, so I will do it” and headed to Mt. Fuji.

It was on a weekend, so Mt. Fuji seethed with people. It was his first time to climb Mt. Fuji, so he was very tired. “But, I need to reach the summit before sunrise definitely.” He climbed for his life and made it before sunrise finally.

The Eastern sky became bright gradually. He suddenly noticed something like a star was shining. He thought, “It is what called me here” and said to the light. “Now, I am standing at the summit of Japan as promised. Please give me your order.” It was 4:45 am on August 12th, 1991. Words came down from the divine. “Preach the spirit that you have learned and mastered from the divine, to the whole land under the sun from now on.”

“The land under the sun” means not only Japan, but also the land where the sun shines, that is the whole earth. Isadon promptly thought, “It is impossible. A person like me cannot play such a great role.” However, he asked himself. Buddha said to him, “Why don’t you walk? You can walk.” He thought, “I have learned to polish my mind for nine years. My determination to take this path will be firm in the future, too. If so, what I should do is just to continue to live this spirit.”

When he descended Mt. Fuji, he thought, “It was so hard when I ascended Mt. Fuji. But, now that I have overcome it, I feel like coming back here again. It is very interesting. Climbing is like a life in itself.”

 

Gods who do not polish their minds 

In terms of Isadon’s interactions with gods, he received messages directly or he judged the true intentions of various gods who came down upon two shamans. In such a situation, he questioned about the relationships between gods and humans. People own gods, saying “My God is the best” and gods who are involved with them did not try to correct such people.

Isadon learned from Buddha for 9 years and always polished his mind, so he asked various questions to gods with the sole purpose of learning more. Gods answered with dignity at first. However, when his consciousness became higher and his questions became more difficult, they dropped their heads, saying “I cannot answer your question…” and disappeared. Then, the next god with a higher rank appeared, saying “I will protect you.” This process was repeated, and the gods who protected Isadon changed seven times in total.

When he found out that Sumiko-san spoke god’s words and took money from her believers, he said to her, “You should not deceive people by talking about the gods like that.” Since then, he did not visit her place again. Also around Ikuyo-san, another shaman, gods apple-polish people, and they used the gods, so they did not polish their minds. As a result, Isadon came to hate interacting with gods gradually. One day, Ikuyo-san’s mother said to him, “Mr. Furuta, gods do not feel comfortable about you.”  He thought this is a good opportunity, said, “Then, please excommunicate me,” and left her place.

He felt refreshed. He thought, “I do not need protection from gods anymore. I will be devoted to the path of polishing my mind which has been given from Buddha.” It had been a year since Buddha left him.

 

Existence and Non-Existence

“I want to tell the way in which people should live and the truth of the universe to people in the world.” Isadon decided to create a training center for the mind where people learn the way of true life in his hometown, so he came back to Mino-city once in a while.

One day, he took a nap in the local shrine on the roof he always did in his childhood. It was a very sunny day, and he was sleeping comfortably, being surrounded by the holy forests.

Suddenly, he felt like someone told him to wake up, and he woke up. When he got up and looked around, numerous gods like armored warriors were everywhere from the stairs of the shrine to the hand rail. When he thought, “What are they?” he heard of a voice. “These existences are gods, too.” That is, the divine world is very broad like a pyramid from the god in charge of operating the universe to the god of poverty. There are various roles, and he was told that each human exists at the foot of the pyramid.

Isadon thought that this year was a time to learn the vast range of the divine world, he said “Thank you” and went down the stairs of the shrine. Clouds were in the blue sky.

When he left the sanctuary of the shrine, he became curious about what came above suddenly and looked up to the sky. Someone was there, looking at him. “What is it?”

He asked the existence that was in the sky. “Who are you?” But, there was no answer. He asked again, “What is your name?”

Then, the existence answered, “I do not have a name.” When he thought, “No name… How can I recognize you,” the existence said, “I am existence and non-existence.” It is the existence of the universal source which is the origin of all gods and everything in this world.

 

“The Phenomenal World” and “the Potential World”

In this world, there is “the visible world” which consists of visible matters such as the body and substances, and “the invisible world” which consists of invisible matters such as thoughts and minds. These two worlds are called, “the phenomenal world” together. Gods who Isadon had encountered so far were gods of “the phenomenal world.”

Behind “the phenomenal world,” there is “the potential world” where thoughts, life, even time and space do not exist. It is the world of only “vibrancy.” It is the eternal and perfect world where everything matches completely without any distortion. We live in “the phenomenal world”, so we cannot perceive “the potential world” with our thoughts. It is the world where even the concept of existence or non-existence does not exist, and which cannot be specified.

“Existence and non-existence” is the origin of everything in “the phenomenal world” and “the potential world.” It is also the universal system itself which is everywhere in everything.

Long ago, when “the phenomenal world” was created from “the potential world,” the Great God of the Divine called “Amano Minakanushino Omikami” emerged into the empty space. It is the Great God of the Earth called “Kunino Tokotachino Omikami” that emerged as the first god to create “the phenomenal world.” These two great gods express the divine mind of “existence and non-existence” which is the source of universal creation. Gods of “the phenomenal world” who Isadon had encountered so far were multitudinous gods who sealed away the Great God of the Earth.

 

I Exist Inside of You

Around that time, a Japanese drumming group which was led by people who gathered and learned about the mind under Isadon moved their operating base to Toei-cho, in Okumikawa. Since then, he became involved in the Hana Matsuri (meaning Flower Festival).

It was during Isadon’s 40th winter. One of his friends happened to bring a flyer which said, “Kumano is heaven in the world.” When he saw it, he strongly thought that he must go to Kumano somehow. Then, he happened to get to know people in Toei-cho, who visited Tamaki Shrine, the inner sanctuary in Kumano every month, so he began to visit there together with them. Also, he was asked to visit Ise Shrine after Kumano, by a man whose family traditionally played a role of the demon in an area of Toei-cho.

A few days before his departure, a brochure of a religious group was slipped in the shutter of his shop. When he looked at it, it said, “When people’s minds become beautiful, people begin to listen to the inner voice. It is Kunino Tokotachino Omikami.”  On the way to Kumano, he asked an accompanying woman who the God of Tamaki Shrine is, she answered, “It is Kunino Tokokachino Omikami.”

 

This was an interesting story. The following three shrines line up marvelously in a straight line from South West to North East toward the direction of Ushitora (North East): Tamaki Shrine which worships Kunino Tokotachino Omikami, the Great God of the Earth, Ise Shrine which worships Amaterasu Omikami, the God of the Sun, and Tsuki (Moon) Shrine which worships Seoritsu Princess who is a wife god of Amaterasu Omikami (Amaterasu Omikami is described as goddess in the myth, but in fact it is god). The ley line of the Earth, Sun and Moon is formed there.

Moreover, Mt. Fuji is located toward the direction of Ushitora as an extension of that, which fall in trajectory of each other at the beginning of the summer (May 3rd, Isadon’s birthday) according to the heliocentric calendar. In the Hana Matsuri, there is a scene where the Sakaki Demon who has the most important role and an old man have a dialogue. As one of his lines, the old man said, “Ise Tensho Kotaijin (meaning the God of the Sun), Kumano Gongen (meaning the God of Kumano), and Fuji Sengen (meaning the God of Mt. Fuji).” Therefore, the name of Fuji Sengen which had no connection with this festival at that time emerged already.

On the way to Kumano, iridescent clouds which were proof of fortuity emerged in the sky. Isadon visited Tamaki Shrine and stayed there at night. The next day, he stayed at Sakakibara Hot Spring. On the next morning, when he was waiting for the train to come to the platform of Sakakibara Hot Spring Station, and head out to Ise Shrine in the snowing weather, a sweet scent was drifting in the air suddenly.

“What is this scent?” He was about to ask above as always. Then, a word came up from underneath, around his abdomen somehow. When he asked why the message came from inside of himself although he always received it from above, an answer came back.

“I am inside of you.”

When he looked up, God existed above, too. However, he heard the voice from underneath (inside). Then, he realized that this is the existence of Kunino Tokotachino Omikami, the Great God of the Earth.

We receive food which is born from the soil to live. Therefore, we are all children of the earth. The soil is the earth, and the Great God of the Earth exists inside of each one of us who are its divided beings. If we polish our minds and transcend our ego, anyone will be able to hear the voice.

 

Let’s Go to the Foot of Mt. Fuji!

Isadon quit his job on his 40th birthday. He aimed to open a training center for the mind, taking care of his parents in his hometown. However, they did not welcome their son who quit his successful job and came back. No matter how hard he tried to do good things for his parents, he realized that if he pushed his thoughts to people with different values, it will just create unhappiness. So, he decided to leave his hometown. Then, what came up in his mind was Mt. Fuji where he received a message from God before.

“Let’s go to the foot of Mt. Fuji and create a village of Bodhisattvas.” Bodhisattvas mean an existence who consider the health of this world and others’ joy as their own. The village of Bodhisattvas is a place where people connect, help each other, share their joy beyond distinction of each other, and live together.

20 people who resonated with Isadon’s will gathered. Nobody was asked to go together. They felt, “I do not know exactly, but an important life will begin for sure.” Some vacated their houses, some overcame their parents’ strong opposition, and gathered with their own will.

On the spring equinox of March 21st, 1994, the gathering of the Konohana Family, the village of Bodhisattvas, began in this manner.

 

Invite Demons and Happiness into the House

There has been so much drama for 21 years since the foundation of the Konohana Family. People sensed that this would be an important way of life and became a member. However, each one of us were very immature, were trapped in our ego, and thought of only ourselves. So, we were far from Bodhisattvas.

Isadon treated each member patiently, preached the path of polishing their minds severely, gently and humorously with jokes, and helped them to transcend the frame of self. He himself became a demon and guided some members toward awakening, who were drowned in ego and became blind mentally.

It was exactly the severity of the Great God of the Earth (Kunino Tokotachino Omikami) who was hated by multitudinous gods a long time ago, and the true love to guide wandering people in the darkness toward light.

We do not remember exactly from when, but the Konohana Family began to hold the festival on the last day of winter on February 3rd during the coldest time of the year, where some essence of the Hana Matsuri in Toei-cho was incorporated. We scatter roasted soybeans, saying “Invite both demons and happiness into this house” with gratitude toward demons who shine light into the darkness of human minds, and teach the importance of moving toward the light.

Now, the number of Konohana Family members has become 80. Although each one of us is imperfect, we have tried to transcend the frame of ego and take the path. As a result, a way of life has been created where people with totally different backgrounds think of and support each other, share their minds, and live abundantly. Through such a warm bond, some “miracles” have occurred where people with mental diseases recovered their health one after another although neither doctors nor medicine could cure them.

Various incidents have occurred in the world from depression, suicides, economic collapse, terrorisms, natural disasters due to global warming, to the Great East Japan Earthquake. People have sought their own happiness and lived like “I want more and more.” That is why, the current society has been established. Various events which are occurring in the world give humans pain and suffering. However, through the challenges, doesn’t the earth give us some kind of message?

 

Fuji Sengen Konohana Matsuri

On December 21st, 2012 when the Mayan calendar marked the end of an era, we had a universally great event. The solar system where we live faced the “winter solstice of the galaxy” of 25800 years.

The winter solstice is the peak of darkness. The solar system which had experienced an increase of darkness entered the cycle of increasing light from the winter solstice. The fact that the amount of light increases means that something we could not see in the darkness will be revealed in the light and the truth will be revealed.

After a New Year began, “the first Fuji Sengen Konohana Matsuri” was held at the Konohana Family on February 3rd, 2013.

This was because a researcher on the Hana Matsuri asked the Konohana Family, which had held some essence of the festival, to take over the Hana Matsuri at the place of Fuji. Local people in Toei-cho taught us how to dance, play the Japanese bamboo flute and drum and how to make decorations of the site. The first Fuji Sengen Konohana Matsuri was held successfully as the place to understand the true meaning of this festival to express “being reborn and purified” and practice it in daily life. The energy of dancing people and gods who gathered from many places was integrated, and the entire site of the festival created a huge vortex. This became the exact place where the unity of gods and people was embodied.

The next year, 2014, during the morning of the festival, the Golden God of Ushitora who looked like the Sakaki Demon came to Isadon. The Golden God said, “With this day, the Golden God of Ushitora has become revealed.”

In such a situation, the Venerable Grandmother Nah Kin of the Mayan Solar Tradition received an inspiration as “Mt. Fuji is a place to connect with the center of the universe” and visited the Konohana Family. On July 26th, 2014, people of the Mayan Solar Tradition held the ceremony to celebrate the Mayan New Year with the Konohana Family in order to spread love to the world, using Mt. Fuji as an antenna. Interestingly, the Venerable Grandmother Nah Kin, who lives on the opposite side of the earth from us, had a vision where a pillar of light came down onto Mt. Fuji from the center of the galaxy; and the energy of love will spread to the entire earth during the same year that the Konohana Family was founded. Twenty years later, people who live under the same determination have met.

If Mt. Fuji is the mountain of divine wisdom which brings down the divine will, the Himalayas is the mountain of earth wisdom, where the will which sank from Mt. Fuji into magma comes out. Its cycle is about 6000 years, which is a quarter of the solar spiral around the galaxy, which has the winter solstice every 25800 years. In November, 2014, at the great historical turning point for the start of the 6000 year cycle, after the winter solstice of the galaxy, Isadon was invited to visit Hartola Village in the Himalayas and Auroville, which is the world’s biggest community in India. This is how he visited the mountain of earth wisdom.

 

Red Flame Turned into Gold and White Light

It had been 24 years since Buddha left Isadon. He had led this path alone, and had never whined. However, his wavering mind was burning like a red flame inside of him. It is the mind of “I just want people to become aware of the truth.” The flame of passion began to change from red into gold, and finally to white light through his stay in India.

At Auroville, Isadon encountered two spirits: the Mother, the founder of Auroville and Sri Aurobindo, her partner and a philosopher in India. Sri Aurobindo’s spirit, who Isadon encountered for the first time, led Isadon’ eyes toward various things. Whenever he looked at something, Aurobindo said, “I am there,” “I am there, too” and “I am everywhere.” When he thought this spirit exists in everything, words came from Aurobindo like, “I exist in everything, so I am non-existence.” Then, he sensed with intuition that this spirit is the Great God of the Earth, that is the Golden God of Ushitora.

Aurobindo’s spirit said, “You must know me. You have been with me all until now.” When Isadon asked, “You are also inside of me, aren’t you?” Aurobindo answered, “I am inside and outside of you and everywhere.”

The Mother’s spirit gently welcomed Isadon who had burnt himself with red flame like his elder sister. He suffered from duodenal ulcers before he travelled to India, so she said to him, “Come to me. I will heal your burnt body. From now on, I will help your role.” This means that the divine and the earth creates the world together.

Until now, although he told the truth, it did not spread as truth. Without the red flame of passion, he could not take this path. However, if he tells the truth from the bottom of his spirit from now on, it will spread surely. He does not have to burn the red flame anymore. Red flame will turn into gold, and finally into white light.

The era will begin when the divine leads the earth at last. Humans on earth understand and practice it. There is no egotistic will, but only the strength to follow the divine will because the truth is on the divine side, not on the side of ego.

In the Konohana Family’s 21-year path, “the divine law” and “the earth law” always have circulated. “The divine law” is the path of the Great God of the Divine (Amano Minakanushino Omikami) where the divine law comes down as inspiration. “The earth law” is the path of the Great God of the Earth (Kunino Tokotachino Omikami) where humans accumulate their experiences on earth and go up the stairs toward the divine.  What these two Great Gods’ minds manifest is the source of universal creation, “existence and non-existence.” We were all there originally, and now are taking a journey to go back to one again. It is just like the screw of a music box is creating music and returning to its original state.

Isadon says as follows:

Someday, people who govern this nation will come here and ask me. “We have tried to make a truly prosperous nation, but it has not worked well at all. How can we guide this nation rightly?” Then, I will answer like this. “It is not to create a structure or system. Please look at the minds of people who live here. When people can live with a mind like this, the nation will become truly abundant.”

 

Become Aware of the Truth and True Joy

On January 31st, 2015, the 3rd Fuji Sengen Konohana Matsuri was held, and the Golden God who was represented through a golden demon mask and a white costume emerged. While the Sakaki Demon mask was produced originally here in order to breathe life into it, the inspiration of creating a golden mask came up to Isadon suddenly, which was unprecedented in the tradition of the Hana Matsuri in Toei-cho. The finished mask was not the Sakaki Demon mask anymore, but the Golden God of Ushitora. Therefore, a performance with the Golden God of Ushitora, who was revealed to Isadon, emerged and was incorporated. In this manner, a new life was breathed into this festival which expresses “being reborn and purified.”

A few days before the festival, a soccer ball sized light sphere came down onto  sleeping Isadon at dawn. He wondered, “What is it?” and watched the light sphere which slowly came down from the ceiling. Then, two arms extended from it and the ball began to sing, “I am happy and joyful!” shaking both arms.

Isadon thought, “This is the figure of multitudinous gods who follow the Golden God of Ushitora.” A long time ago, multitudinous gods hated polishing their minds and sealed the Golden God. However, now they are aware of the truth and enjoy the true joy. This is the figure of people who just dance from the bottom of their spirits, become freed from their attached ego, and come back to one.

― When People are Reborn,
Purified and Dance Together,
a Happy and Joyful World will Begin ―

(This story expresses an essence of enormous amount from Isadon’s life experiences. We hope this will be an opportunity for you to analyze the flow of the era which is occurring on earth in the vast universal flow, and to explore what kind of society humans should create in the future.)

Why Do People Become Sick?
A Medical Revolution Which will Not Need
Drugs or Hospitals Anymore

Welcome to the Earth!

 The boundless and infinite expansion of the universe. The earth where we live is a really tiny existence within it. However, this tiny planet is a miraculous one out of all miracles in the whole universe. No matter how hard humans explore the universe, gathering the most advanced technology and wisdom, they cannot find life. On the other hand, the earth is like a sea of lives! All kinds of lives from animals, plants to invisible microorganisms link with each other and circulate infinitely, and create a symphony of majestic life for the global ecosystem.
Now, let’s look at how this life network exists!

Blood Connects Everything

Our human body is a collectivity of complicated and diverse functions, consisting of about 60 trillion cells. It is the blood that connects throughout the body. The diameter of the finest part is invisibly fine like less than one hundredth of a millimeter. Connecting all blood which spreads like a network from the crown to the toe, it is said that it becomes two and a half the length of the periphery of the earth. Blood runs though vessels which circulate so thoroughly that it continues to be provided throughout the body.

unnamed

It is the heart, the center of all organs which sends out the blood to the entire body. In Japanese, the heart (心臓) is literally the organ (臓) of the mind (心). When our hearts ripple and throb, they spread the state through the blood to the entire body instantly, and affects our actions. The blood carries the mind. If an unbalanced lifestyle pollutes the blood, the pollution spreads throughout the body. An unbalanced mind is the cause of an unbalanced lifestyle, and it pollutes the entire body. The unclean blood gives burden to other organs, and brings problems. If the blood vessels clog up due to pollution, the blood cannot run through there and comes to decay.

Blood has two types of pollution: physical pollution which can be detected by medical examination and a spiritual one which cannot be expressed with numeric value. Either way, the cause is the mind. When people live with a beautiful mind every day and their blood circulates throughout the body without any stagnation, they can be always healthy.

 

Now, let’s expand our viewpoints a little bit. When 60 trillion cells gather and form one human life, a society where humans gather and create is also one life. Then, what would be the blood of society? It is money which connects throughout a society and circulates. Money also carries the human mind. It can carry consideration and gratitude or carry anxiety and desires and inhibit the flow. Now, if money does not spread throughout a society, and stays in specific places, various issues will occur. If the blood of money does not circulate, a society itself will become sick.

 

Let’s expand our viewpoint more. The earth which consists of such a human society and other various lives is also one life. Then, what would be the blood of the earth?

unnamed-1

It would be the Water. Water is the source of all lives. The water which comes down on earth as rain flows throughout the earth, becomes a river, pours into the ocean, circulates throughout the world, rises up to the sky, becomes a cloud, and becomes rain again. It runs through the body of humans and other lives, and circulates everywhere on this planet. Water connects our lives, however now water pollution has spread due to an artificial production of micro plastics. They are so invisibly fine that we cannot collect them and they have spread gradually, beginning to bring a serious issue on earth. The only way to purify such an invisible pollution is through an invisible spiritual power, which is the human mind.

Then, let’s expand our viewpoint even more. If the solar system which consists of the sun, nine planets including the earth, and numerous small celestial bodies is also one life, what would be the blood of the solar system which connects everything?

“Always Look Towards Me”

 The Heart of the Solar System, the Sun

All life activities have the mind. The heart which is in the center of all, sends out the mind to the entire body, which creates our actions and our life. In the same way, the solar system follows the mind of the sun at the center, and all the stars move around it. It is the solar magnetic field that delivers the mind of the sun to the whole.

unnamed

Planets describe their original orbits, interlock with each other, share time, and continue to move forward along with the sun in the infinite universe. In such complicated motions, the morning and night come upon earth every day as promised; and so do the spring, summer, autumn and winter every year. It is because the solar magnetic field carries the mind of the sun, and connects the earth and the other planets as one life activity in the network of the solar system.

The sun shines light on earth, gives heat, creates winds, circulates water, which is the blood of the earth, and nurtures life.The sun is the heart of the solar system and at the same time, it is the heart of the earth. It sends out orders to the whole solar system, interlocks stars, and shows the direction to earth. When human minds deviate from it and a problem occurs, the sun creates natural disasters in order to tell its will to the earth, and sends a message to “Improve such an attitude” to us. Everything from the era which proceeds on earth to the way of our human life is under the solar guidance.

unnamed-3

Then, if the solar system is one life, there is an even bigger majestic life which includes everything in the world, making the solar system just a cell. Yes, it is the universe. Now, what would be the blood of the universe? What connects and circulates all, and ties the whole universe as one life? It is the spirit, the universal mind. Everything from humans who live on earth to the sun which guides the earth is under the universal mind, and is given life in the great network.

The Most Visible State – the Body

The bigger the scale of life expands from humans, a society, the earth, the solar system to the universe, the more invisible and spiritual the blood which circulates in it becomes. On the contrary, the smaller and closer matters become, the more visible, dense and physical they become. This world exists under the fractal structure where everything from big matters to small ones is based on the same system. Even in a smaller scale than the human body, there are roles of the blood. The smaller the scale becomes than the human body, the more invisible and spiritual it becomes again. Therefore, the human body is the structure which manifests the state of the mind in the most visible manner.

The World Which Becomes More Chaotic When It is Cured More

The blood is a state of mind itself. So, the mind can pollute or purify the blood. When the mind is beautiful, the blood flows throughout the body normally, the body is healthy and people live a good life. If the blood becomes polluted and we become sick, diseases teach distortions of our minds through symptoms. Therefore, they give us a chance to reflect on ourselves and correct the state of our minds.

However, in the modern era, medical technology has advanced and only symptoms have been cured, without having relevance with the mind. The medical purpose has become only to cure diseases and extend life, and people do not question the quality of life. Although the mind has the cause, if people do not correct it and deal with only symptoms, the mind surely brings other problems to a different aspect in life. However, people just consider, “Diseases are bad,” “A long life is good” and came to depend on medical treatment more and more without facing their own minds which have created diseases. As a result, the more diseases become cured, the more chaotic world they spread.

It is the same situation with terrorism which cannot cease in the world. A society creates terrorism, so we who create such a society are responsible for them. However, people look at not the fundamental cause but the superficial symptoms, consider terrorism as bad, and try to suppress them desperately. But, the more people try to suppress only symptoms, ignoring the fundamental cause, the bigger the contradictions become. Therefore, they will reappear somewhere for sure, and never settle.

Now, the national medical expenditure in Japan (what becomes the target of the health insurance treatment) is 40 trillion yen in total annually. This means a person uses 314,000 yen for medical treatment annually on average, which is a profitable industry. In the modern society where people seek only numbers, the profits of the medical industry are posted as GDP. If the number rises up, some people become happy, saying, “the economy has become activated.” However, is it truly a blessing? In order to measure the fullness of social welfare, the number of doctors and hospital beds is compared, and it is considered that the more shows a richer society with excellent welfare service. However, a society which needs such medical treatment is far from health.

The Importance of Death

Originally, everything links with each other, circulates and is healthy in this world. In such a state, diseases teach us that our minds have deviated from their original circulation. They occur so that we can learn the system of this world and the meaning of life through correcting it. Therefore, if we understand the structure, they do not need to occur anymore. However, modern society has continued to develop with diseases and problems existing. At many sites for medical treatment, doctors repeatedly give treatment to suppress symptoms based on examination data and knowledge, and do not cure diseases fundamentally. Moreover, hospitals and drug companies gain profits due to the existence of diseases. The current society is managed based on such unnecessary matters. Then, are there any specific bad people there? The whole society is the cause and each one of us who creates such a society is responsible for that.

Some time ago when medical treatment did not advance this much, people faced their lives every day, felt a sense of life, and returned their lives with determination when they were close to death. A sense of life means a state where peoples’ consciousness always communicates with the life network they belong to, and their intuition is sharpened to sense the core mind at the center in this network. However, modern people depend on medical treatment with the sole purpose of living long, which clouds the sense of life, where people lose the intuition to sense what is important in their lives. In addition, they came to feel fear about losing their lives. However, no matter how much we do not want to die, people die for sure. It is an absolute truth which is given equally to everyone.

When we sharpen a sense of life, face our minds every day, and live seriously, we come to experience a sense of great fulfillment just by living. When people reach such a mental state, determination to be ready to return their lives anytime emerges naturally, they can live fully, die a natural death, and depart with a sense of accomplishment. The modern medical treatment values only making patients live. However, our life is completed with death, so there is an importance in death.

The Miracle of All Miracles

We humans were born on earth with a body, and look at only visible physical matters. When we become sick, we try to cure our body somehow. However, human nature is not the physical body but spirituality.

Each human soul has a unique karma (=individuality). However, without the body, no matter how much distortions human souls have, they will not appear as phenomena. So, we cannot realize them. Then, we were given a physical body as a container for our soul, and given the path to know what kind of individuality we have through phenomena, and correct distortions if there are any. That is, living on earth means we can change. Even if we do not correct our minds and cure only the physical body, we cannot carry the physical state after we die. In a state without the body, no matter how distorted the mind is, we cannot correct it and souls cannot grow up.

The earth is a miraculous planet which is full of lives in the infinite universe. We live with the form of a body, learn the system of this world through various phenomena which we encounter in our lives, and can evolve our souls. This is the purpose of the earth, and the reason why we were born on this planet.

Please look at your body carefully – 60 trillion cells, blood vessels with two and a half the periphery of the earth, and a brain whose full function is said to be still sleeping at 90%. The human body is a masterpiece of life, which is full of mysteries beyond human wisdom. Also, humans cannot live alone. The sun, water, air, earth and wind–the divine blessings which we cannot create by ourselves nurture our lives. Furthermore, stars in the universe and numerous lives weave the network, we circulate our lives in it and exist here and now. How miraculous is it? In such a miracle, it is the miracle of all miracles that each one of 7 billion people on earth is given a unique individuality and lives only in this one life and has not existed previously, or will again in the future.

When humans, who are given such a precious individuality, connect with each other and establish one life network, the possibility of humanity will expand infinitely. When each one of us becomes aware of such a consciousness, the more we connect with each other, the more abundant we become. This is the true figure of this world.

The World is Originally Healthy

Every single person is given a life in the great life network, and plays their original role which nobody else can replace. However, people think of only themselves and perceive things only with their viewpoints. So, they came to misunderstand that they live with their own power, and have forgotten that their lives are supported by many of other existences. Their bodies exist in this network, but their consciousness has deviated from its connection and does not circulate anymore, which creates stagnation and problems. Such a state has occurred everywhere in modern society.

Originally, it is impossible for an existence not to contribute to other lives in the natural world. When plants grow up, they become food for insects and animals. When they finish their lives and return to the soil, they become food for microorganisms and nutrients for the next life. In the same way, it is the figure of nature that life activities always support other lives, link with each other infinitely, and continue to circulate.

There is the word in Japanese. The Chinese character of “Hataraku(働)” is written as “a person (人) moves (動).” When a person moves, he/she lives. Also, “Hataraku” means “make others (Hata) live easily (raku).” It is to contribute to other lives. Therefore, living itself is contributing to other lives. If someone becomes sick in this network, stagnation emerges and he/she cannot “Hataraku” for everyone else anymore.  Our health has a responsibility to play a role for the whole and support other lives. In the modern era, many people seek health for individual purposes, which is the reverse attitude from the original figure. It is the attitude of humans living in the 21st century to understand this fine life structure and live, in order to make a breakthrough in the stagnation of the modern society.

 

The Sun Teaches Us

Now, various issues are occurring in the world. For example, do you think terrorism, which occurs somewhere in distant countries, has nothing to do with you? Do you think natural disasters such as earthquakes and typhoons are natural wonders which humans cannot do anything about?

The earth where we live is under a solar guidance. The sun always continues to send its mind. When humans deviate from it, it creates appropriate phenomena on earth, and sends a message to “Realize what you have done.” Only when people know the reality of what is happening in the world, and can see what kind of influence they have brought here, they can begin to take the path of change. Diseases also manifest contradictions within us as phenomena. Therefore, if we just depend on medical treatment to cure only symptoms, we cannot realize the true meaning. That is why, the era has begun when each one of us sharpens our sense of life and finds out what the truth is by ourselves. In the past, people have sought physical wealth, and considered only an expansion of medical treatment and economy as a good matter. However, we have entered the era when we select only what is truly necessary and eliminate what is unnecessary. It might be painful temporarily due to the big distortions of the world. However, there will be a world where we can feel life itself is full of abundance, ahead of us.

There is a flow in this world. When we stop looking at only the surface of events and put our spiritual eyes behind it, we will be able to see a big flow which always continues to flow behind all events eternally. If we move away from our own positions and get on the flow, various things link with each other marvelously and things go swimmingly. Moreover, a world will emerge which we cannot imagine when we try to achieve something by our own power. In such a flow, unnecessary matters will be eliminated naturally, infinite possibilities which are sleeping within humans will blossom, and various individualities echo and connect with each other and circulate beautifully. This will be a world full of joy through dynamic lives, which is far beyond individual satisfaction.

Therefore, the sun continues to send its mind to us.
It is telling us,
“Always look towards me so that you can be beautiful and happy,
you can think of each other and connect with everyone, and
the world can be abundant.”

unnamed-7Pluto is an invisibly small existence, but it exists in the most outer position of the solar system, it describes the unique elliptical orbit, and carries the orders of the outer universe into the solar system. It is a planet which interacts with the universal spirit. In 2006, its size did not meet the standard of a planet, so it came to be classified as a dwarf planet. However, in this newsletter, it is considered equally with the other eight planets of the solar system, as one to play an invisibly important role.


The Medical Treatment is Inside of YOU

A life is a story. People do not become sick suddenly. They have taken a mental transition to reach there for sure. As “disease (病気)” is written as “energy (気) is sick (病)” in Japanese, the cause of disease is not in the physical body, but in the stagnation of the mind (energy). When life balance is lost and the mind does not echo with the body, diseases appear at the weakest part. If the balance of the soil of a field and its crops collapse, insects emerge and try to adjust it. In the same way, diseases are also a kind of self-purification to return unbalance to an original state. Originally, everything circulates beautifully and is healthy in this world. When we trace the process of how stagnation emerges and people became sick, and return to an original state, we can become healthy again instantly. It is the “original (元) energy (気),” that is “health (元気).”

The following letter (医) shows the origin of the Chinese character for “medical treatment.” Originally, the letter “医” was the combination of two parts to show the mind and the body. From the expressions such as “priestess” and “gratitude” which show the mind, we can see that people had an attitude to follow something greater than themselves, receive orders, and correct energy as medical treatment. However, now the mind has disappeared from the letter “医”. Then, the parts to show the Oriental physical medical treatment and nutritional therapy have disappeared. Finally, only the part to show surgical treatment remains as the current letter “医”.

Originally, medical treatment is a work to unlock the life system which consists of the microcosm of the body, which requires an analysis of the energy which flows throughout the body, and take a balance of the mind and body. By sharpening the sense of life and communicating with the body, which is a mandala of complicated lives, we can awaken our spiritual eyes. That is, we follow the great flow of this world which supports our lives, and live.

People with various diseases visit the Konohana Family. We ask them what kind of life they have lived until now, and analyze the mechanism of how diseases emerge. There is a reason why people become sick. When people realize it, the symptoms do not need to exist anymore. Then, if a good energy flows throughout the body by realizing it, it heals unhealthy cells and diseases will be cured naturally.

This is not a place where someone cures someone else, but a place where the sick people themselves understand the system of this world and return to the original energy. Unknown abilities which humans have not been aware of are hidden within us. If our traditional way of living has created diseases, being given a burden of diseases means a chance to break the traditional frame, and step into a new world. When you become aware of this, infinite possibilities which are sleeping inside of you bloom, the scale of life expands and you will live in a bigger world.

 

The medical treatment is inside of YOU, because it is YOU that create such diseases. It is not given from outside like drugs, so there is no side effect. Originally, there is the law of life which is the exquisite universal law within us. When we realize this, a world will emerge where each one of us learns only from events which we encounter in our daily life, guide ourselves into health, and neither drugs nor hospitals become necessary. This will be the medical treatment of the 21st century.

One Month Truth School at Konohana Family in Japan

Dear Earth Family,

I hope everyone doing well and happy.

5Who are you and why do you live?

When a problem happened, have you ever thought like
“Why did such a thing happen to me although I am not wrong?”
When people encounter problems, they tend to find causes outside of themselves, and try to change their environment. However, it would not change and only problems piled up. As a result, we have reached the current world where we cannot see our destination anymore due to various problems everywhere, from the domestic level to the global scale. But, if we change our viewpoint, a chance will come for a big transformation.
All humans have an ego (=individuality). Humans see this world through the filter of their ego. There are 7 billion people on earth, so there are 7 billion kinds of viewpoints. However, people have considered their own viewpoints as absolute, and have made other ones wrong. Therefore, human minds have become more and more separate in the past. We have fully experienced a world of anxiety, isolation, friction, disparity, and confrontation. Now, we have reached the stage where we cannot move forward anywhere at this rate. If you encounter a problem right now, it might be a message from the era, which has faced a great turning point.
“The seed of the problem is inside of you. So, change yourself.”
That is, when you change yourself, the world changes.

6

What kind of individuality do you have? How do you see the world through your own filter? When you can understand this objectively, you will be able to see the great system of this world which is a collectivity of 7 billion egos. Then, you will step out of the narrow frame of yourself, infinite possibilities which are sleeping inside of you will bloom, and you will be able to live freely as a majestic life beyond the individual frame. In contrast from the past era, when people become unified under a common value, they can richly resonate their individualities and they harmonize with each other to create a beautiful world. This is the figure of the universe where we live. This world exists under the fractal structure where everything from the microcosm, such as atoms, to the macrocosm, such as the universe, exists in harmony. Out of all, the human body can be perceived as an expression of this system in the closest and the most visible way. Therefore, analyzing yourself with a physical body is a shortcut to analyzing the whole world, and to know the true meaning of living in this world.


The One Month Stay Truth School is a place where you make a breakthrough in your life regardless of the presence or absence of life problems. There is no specific right answer. During the Truth School, each participant will nurture calm and objective viewpoints to perceive themselves, expand their worldviews, and master the power to open an original life by themselves.

“Preach the Spirit to the Whole Land under the Sun”

Korean girls called Somin (10-year-old), Shanrin (10-year-old) and Ieyon (8-year-old) and Shanrin’s mother named Linlin have been staying at the Konohana Family for a summer vacation since July 26th, 2016. They had an opportunity to talk with Isadon, a founder of this community. Shanrin was born and grew up with the Konohana Family until she became one year old, and she continues to come back to stay here with her mother every year. The talk with Isadon began with Shanrin’s question.

Shanrin:
Isadon, I have a question! What does “Konohana” in “Konohana Family” mean?

Isadon:
“Ko” means a tree, “No” means of and “Hana” means flowers. So, “Konohana” means a tree which blooms many flowers.

Shanrin:
This means the big tree of Isadon may bloom many small flowers like us!

Isaodn:
Hahaha! This is not true, though. A typical tree flower in Japan is a cherry blossom. They bloom beautifully all together and fall just the same. The goddess of Mt. Fuji is called “Konohana Sakuyahime no Mikoto” and it is said that her flowers are cherry blossoms or plum blossoms. She represents the beauty, graciousness, and transience of life.

What do you think plum blossoms represent? Plums are good for our health, right? So, they represent health and longevity.

There is another typical tree flower. Do you know what it is?

Shanrin:
Peach blossoms?

Isadon:
Bingo! It is said that peach blossoms are flowers of a lotus land in China. A lotus land means a utopia where everyone lives happily. Also, peaches represent eternal youth and longevity.

Moreover, “Ko” in “Konohana” also means individuals in Japanese. For example, each Konohana Family member is like a blossom. When each individual blooms a flower of their life, many flowers bloom on a big tree of the Konohana Family, making a beautiful big blossom like cherry, plum and peach blossoms.

In the beginning, I did not know about the goddess of Konohana Sakuyahime no Mikoto at all. Before we moved to the foot of Mt. Fuji in 1994, we went to see the sunrise at Mt. Fuji for the first time on New Year’s Day in the year of 1992. I was walking around the pasture at the foot of Mt. Fuji before the sunrise. Then, Mari-chan, a founding member took some photos of me walking around, and the light always appeared above my head in the photos! If the sun was up, it would be understandable that the light appeared, reflecting my head. However, although the sun did not rise yet, the light appeared in the photos.

When I looked at them, I sensed that the god of Mt. Fuji is happy to have us at the foot of Mt. Fuji. Later, when I went to the city hall of Fujinomiya city to consult about moving in this area, I also went to Sengen-Taisha shrine nearby. I asked a priestess, “Who is the god of this shrine?” Then, she taught me that it is Konohana Sakuyahime no Mikoto, the goddess of Mt. Fuji. I had no idea about what kind of goddess she was, so I asked her about it. Then, she gave me a brochure, which says, “Konohana Sakuyahime no Mikoto represents the beauty, graciousness, and transience of life.” Once I looked at it, I knew that this was a way of life we should aim for. That is why, we decided to call our community, the “Konohana Farm.” Later, when more and more international people came to visit us, it was renamed the “Konohana Family.”

Shanrin:
Isadon did not expect that the Konohana Family would become like this?

Somin:
Isadon is so smart that he knew it would become like this and started the Konohana Family!

Isadon:
Hahaha! I knew this way of life is important.

Somin:
It is very important!

Isadon:
When I was 40, I climbed Mt. Fuji for the first time. At the summit of Mt. Fuji, the divine said to me, “Preach the spirit that you have learned and mastered from the divine to the whole land under the sun.” “The whole land under the sun” means the whole world. I received the message to spread the divine spirit to the whole world, so I came to the foot of Mt. Fuji from Aichi Prefecture where I lived before.

Shanrin:
I want to climb to the summit of Mt. Fuji and receive a message from the divine!

Isadon:
Hahaha. Let’s climb Mt. Fuji together next time♪

Somin:
I want to go, too!

Isadon:
Sure. I have been to the summit of Mt. Fuji eleven times. When I received the message from the divine, I thought “One day, the time will come when this way of life becomes important for the world. Therefore, I should move to the foot of Mt. Fuji and begin a life to become a model of the world.” Then, the Konohana Family began with 20 companies who resonated with the spirit.

Shanrin:
Who came with you?

Isadon:
Eikoba-chan, Ai-chan, Nori-chan, Rei-chan, Mari-chan, Chanappi, Kazuko-chan, Haru-chan, Junji-man, Yasuedon.

Shanrin:
Yoko-chan!

Isadon:
She is not a founding member.

Shanrin:
She did not come with you?? Then, why is she your best friend in the community??

Isadon:
Hahaha! When she came to the Konohana Family for the first time 9 years ago, she said in front of everyone, “I want to learn the divine spirit here. In order to do so, I think it would be the best to learn near Isadon and help his work.” Since then, she has been working with me through coordinating the natural therapy program, editing blogs and doing the translation.

Shanrin:
I think her spiritual learning has ended?!

Isadon:
The learning of the spirit continues forever. It is the path to reach the divine.

Shanrin:
Do we reach the divine before we die??

Isadon:
Even if we die, we have to learn. (Everyone laughed at Shanrin’s unhappy face.)

Shanrin:
…Then, how about you, Isadon??

Isadon:
I continue to learn the spirit, too. The universe is very vast and complicated.

I knew this way of life is important. So did 20 founding members who came with me. However, nobody knew exactly what kind of life it would be at all. Since we had no clue, we have lived as the divine told us. Then, we have encountered people and events that we could not imagine. This is how the Konohana Family has reached here. I could not imagine this in the beginning, but the important way of life I thought has formed the way it should be.

Somin:
Can I ask you another question? I want to know where people came from!

Isadon:
I do not think people knew how they would become, either. Just like the Konohana founding members, they could not imagine that they would reach the current world. People are born, accumulate experiences gradually on earth and die. Then, new people are born and take it over. People, in turn, have lived on earth and have reached the current world. It is as if people have advanced like going up the stairs of earth. Every time they go up one stair, they come to understand this world and the divine spirit. However, I think that the divine who has been watching from above knows everything!

Where did humans come from? The ancestor of humans are called ape-men and we have become humans from apes. They existed on earth about 4 million years ago. Then, all of a sudden, apes learned to use a tool and fire!

Please imagine. In the beginning, the earth was a very hot planet. There was no life. Then, when it cooled down gradually, vapor became rain and it made oceans. At that time, the volcanic activities were active, so lava came out from volcanos and continental plates hit each other and rose, which made lands. It was about 4 billion years ago.

There was an existence who was watching how the earth changed. It is God. Where were you before you were born?

Shanrin:
I was “Mikoto (meaning living with God in the phenomenal world in Japanese)!”

Isadon:
Yes, we were only souls. It is the same figure as God. So, before souls embodied apes which became the base of humans, the souls of humans existed with God in the divine world and waited for a time when their receivers would become ready. The earth was formed gradually in the universe. Then, oceans were created and so was the land.

It is primitive cells that came down on earth as the first life. It changed in various ways, and became fish in the oceans. Then, they went up on the land and became amphibians like frogs. Next, they became reptiles like snakes and lizards, and divided into birds and mammals. Finally, apes appeared from mammals. When the divine spirit saw them from above, it thought, “They are the best receivers for us to come down on earth!”

There is a Chinese character of “神”and the right part of “申”means apes according to the Chinese zodiac. When life evolved to the stage of apes on earth, the God who was watching the process from above showed (示) the divine will on the body of apes (申). That is why the Chinese character of “神” is an old form of “神 (God)”! The God came down on apes and became the human ancestor of ape-men.

Ape-men and apes are totally different. Ape-men were given divine wisdom. Therefore, they started to use tools and fire.

Somin:
Do the monkeys that God did not enter just remain monkeys?

Isadon:
That is right. Apes that God did not enter continued just as monkeys and became chimpanzees and gorillas. On the other hand, apes that God entered became ape-men, the human ancestors. Humans have wisdom and came to have their own wishes. In addition, they have a high ability, so they became able to gratify their desires. A long long time ago, it was difficult for humans to survive. Therefore, they helped each other to live. However, when they became clever, made and discovered various things, and evolved, they became selfish and greedy, started to lie and even steal things from others and make conflicts!

Somin:
Because humans became greedy, a gap among people emerged.

Isadon:
Exactly! Originally, all the lives were connected with each other in the natural ecosystem. So, in the beginning, the world was not convenient only to humans. However, they thought of only themselves, so they created an artificial world where they destroyed nature. A long time ago, humans sensed the divine energy, talked with plants and animals, and lived with nature. It was to live with the divine. At that time, humans had a mind of “Nature supports our life” and “We receive life.” However, the modern people have lived only with their own power and thought, “I am not helped by anybody.” So, they have forgotten the existence of the divine.

Nature such as the sun, earth, water, air and wind gives equally to all lives. The reason why everyone can live is because the earth rotates and revolves around the sun, and the sun travels in the universe. That is why, time was born in this world, life was born and we can live every day.

I have realized such an important matter, so I decided to live with gratitude for nature to give us our life. In order to do so, the most important thing is not to prioritize our selfish mind, purify our spirits, and live for the world and others. This is how the Konohana Family has taken its path.

The current people have forgotten such a thing and live with their selfish mind. Therefore, the earth has been full of problems and has become a difficult world for all lives, including humans. Then, the Konohana way of life has become very important for the current world.

Somin:
Is the truth about humans because they are stupid and have a bad mind? Or is there anything else??

Isadon:
Looking at the current world, human activities have been really silly and they consider what becomes their problems as good matters! Originally, humans were divided from God and formed as each individual. Therefore, we have such a high consciousness within ourselves.

People do bad things, feel unpleasant or become sick. Then, they learn what was wrong. People become precious in this manner. However, it is important to realize “Why it has become like this?” beforehand, and change our own attitude even before having a hard time or become sick. It is called “Polishing our spirits.” Therefore, polishing our spirits is the top priority at the Konohana Family. Then, our spirits become more beautiful and the world becomes better without going through a hard time.

Somin:
If we do not know that, we will continue to hurt ourselves.

Isadon:
That is right. Such people tend to repeat the same problems. When a trouble occurs, they blame others or society for it, and do not want to reflect on themselves. Therefore, they leave themselves the way they are and try to change their environment, don’t they? However, all we encounter in our life is the result of how we have lived.

Somin:
Such people are silly!

Isadon:
They live hard; however, their efforts do not turn out to be a good matter. For example, there is the flow and law of this world. In this system, stars communicate with each other and time flows from the past to the future. However, if you do not know about it, and live only with your thoughts, no matter how hard you live, problems will occur in this world.

You know such a system already, so you can teach it to everyone in the future.

Somin:
It seems like I know what my problem is.

Isadon:
Hahaha. Ordinary people do not know that. Even if trouble happens to them, they just feel sorry about themselves and do not consider what their problem would be. When all humans reflect on themselves and purify their spirits, a beautiful world will appear automatically. However, instead of doing so, people try to become rich by owning money, ask for financial abundance from politicians, or blame others by saying, “My life does not get better because society is wrong!”

Somin:
Leaders have to take a risk, then.

Isadon:
That is right. If the world has not become a great one yet, then it cannot be understood in the society to live with an important way of life. In such a meaning, leaders have to take risks. However, even if many people do not understand it yet, you have sensed that a new era is coming, haven’t you? For example, at a place like the Konohana Family, although we do not know what will be ahead of us, we all know this way of life is important. So, we can live like this.

In Buddhism, people aim for “enlightenment.” It means not to separate ourselves from other people so that a gap does not emerge. We should respect all lives. On top of that, we should value other people just as we value ourselves. Therefore, they teach to live not only for ourselves but for the world. This is the way of life for great people.

Somin:
In order for ordinary people to be great ones, are religions necessary? Or, if we study very hard, can we become great people?

Isadon:
You are asking about “How can we become like that?” That is the way of thought based on achieving a goal by your own power. The past 6500 years was such an era when people developed science and technologies, competed with each other, and tried to become rich for themselves. However, from the universal viewpoint, the peak of that value came about 3.5 years ago on December 21st, 2012, and such an era has ended already. In terms of religions, the past 3000 years was the era when religions have said they would properly guide people, but at the same time, they have promoted divine favor and gathered people by saying, “If you join this group, you will be happy” or “You can become rich.” Also, they have made conflicts by saying, “My teaching is right and other teachings are wrong.” In this manner, religious organizations have been established and a gap between the guru and followers has emerged. This was not a great thing at all. The religious side has always thought of protecting and expanding their organization and cheating followers out of money, and the followers’ side has only wished for their own benefits. That is why, the place which is supposed to create a beautiful spirit has actually created very dishonorable humans.

Somin:
Now, I know the reason why all the adult and kid members at the Konohana Family live together like friends!

Isadon:
Exactly. Children will live in the future, won’t they? The future is a more advanced era, so the level of their souls are higher. That is why, the adults here treat the children just as their company.

Somin:
Children are small adults!

Isadon:
Humans have the age of their souls and bodies. The age of their bodies is a period of how long they have lived on earth this time. We cannot see the age of their souls from that. We can know the age of their souls by what kind of thought they have and how they live. However, older souls are not always better. If possible, it is important to become a person with a high and broad consciousness. That is why, everyone wants to go to the summit of Mt. Fuji. It is said that Mt. Fuji is the mountain of divine wisdom in this world. And our souls know that we can get closer to the divine there.

Somin:
I will spread Isadon’s spirit to my school friends!

Isadon:
If you want to spread it to everyone, it would become your value. So, it would be good to do so.

Now, I am answering your questions. I am answering what you want to know, but on the contrary, there is so much information I know. However, it is not a new story for you. You just remember stories that you have in your spirit. That is why, you can accept and understand it right away, saying, “Yes, yes! I knew that!”

Then, even if people around you do not understand it, you can have confidence in your life. Common people in South Korea have not understood such a truly important thing yet. Actually, many people in the world have not understood it yet. So, people who have understood the importance should live the spirit even if many people do not understand it. This is very significant. When we understand its importance, we can have a strong will and accomplish our mission. Let’s create a world where everyone lives for everyone and the earth.

Somin:
Then, peace prevails on earth!

Isadon:
Exactly! Not only that, the world will become truly abundant. We will be able to live with less amounts of money. Furthermore, unnecessary things will disappear, so the environment will not get worse. In such a meaning, a very simple and rich world will emerge.

Somin:
From my viewpoint, Isadon appears to be the biggest star out of all the people I have met, but at the same time, he seems just a part of the universe.

Isadon:
Yes, this is the story of humanity. It is a story of the universe. This time, you came to the Konohana Family for the first time. This is just the beginning to work together from now on. Let’s have time to talk together again♪

Somin:
Yes! Thank you for the great talk today♪

Mt. Fuji, Lotus flowers and people

――
In this way, the divine spirit has spread from the foot of Mt. Fuji to South Korea. The divine story will be continued forever.
