― The World Always Gives Us the Next A’ ―
It was about 30 years ago. I owned an interior coordinating company at that time. I was driving a car on the freeway to go from Komaki-city where I lived to Toyota-city where I worked. When I was driving the car, the white dashed lines which divided the lanes of the road flowed backwards. It looked like the flow of time.
Going from Komaki to Toyota means that Komaki becomes the past and Toyota becomes the future. The white dashed lines flowed continuously. Toyota came closer to me with each moment and Komaki became further away. After I finished my work and returned home, the direction became the opposite. This time, Komaki became the future and Toyota became the past. The dashed lines flowed from Komaki to Toyota. Komaki came closer to me gradually and Toyota became further away.
I wondered, “What is this world?” At that time, I was heading to Komaki from Toyota. Then, I realized that I had boarded time, instead of moving from one place to another. Each dashed line became a frame of time, which came closer to me from the future to the present, and became farther away into the past. Horizontal scenes flowed backward, and it seemed to be the flow of events.
The American President at that time was President Reagan. I thought people who live in faraway countries, even President Reagan boarded upon this thin stretch of time, feeling the white dashed lines, which continuously flowed backward as the flow of time. Everything which exists as a phenomenon boards upon this time, which is very thin. If something or someone gets off this vehicle of time even for a moment, we cannot see it anymore. Death is something like that.
Perhaps, if we deviate from this thin sliver of time, we might disappear instead of dying. And if we can come back to this again, what disappeared will reemerge suddenly.
We recognize the past because it has reached the present after a time that went through such infinitesimal moments, like the advancing frames of a cartoon. So, the past exists even now. Then, the future exists also now. Since we go through this row of narrow moments with the advancing contexts of time, it seems like it moves and phenomena occur. As a sequence of frames becomes a cartoon, all moments exist in the universe now, and continue endlessly. I wonder if we exist by going through each moment.
I circulated such thoughts and saw the white dashed lines of the freeway flow backward. Everything and everyone including President Reagan boarded upon this. We are time people, so we always exist with time. This world flows.
The Fleeting World
Humans seem to understand that time never stops and moves in this manner, but actually they do not. It moves really quickly. In terms of individuals, this means that death is coming. In a bigger picture, time proceeds and the era moves. In its mechanism (I do not know if I should call it a mechanism), planetary movement creates the motion of time. Invisible planetary gears match with each other, and move the invisibility of time from past to future in a one-way direction.
Surprisingly, the mega system of time and space returns to its origin again. However, it is not the same because it moves from point A to point A’. What sustains such a thing? We cannot understand it by thinking. It exists because it exists.
For example, human bodies have the same structure. As we move from the point A of today to the point A’ of tomorrow, a row of days consumes our lifetime with time. When a cell dies, decays and leaves the body, a new cell with the same role is born in that place and plays a role in maintaining the whole of the body. However, it is not the original A, but A’ which has evolved through one cycle. The aging of the whole body proceeds by such continuation, and lifetime is exhausted.
Then, errors occur once in a while. These become the causes of sickness such as cancer. The reason why errors occur is that humans do not live in accordance with the law of the world; however even such human nature is the law.
Our experiences from the past are incorporated in our DNA as information. There is various information to show people’s nature such as causes of sickness. If we become aware of this and remove them, then we will not become sick anymore. When we make a sequence of DNA healthy without worrying about sickness, it would be possible to create healthy humans as models based on a perfect design.
However, humans have a unique personality. As each person is original and unique, each is created as a slight deviation from the original design. It is an expression of ego, a habit, nature and individuality. The purpose of this world is that every existence is original, instead of creating the same thing like ready-made goods. It is a characteristic of a life. Nothing is the same. Humans have ego, so they can deviate from the law. However, such a human nature is within the law.
Although we encounter a life which we do not expect, we do not have to worry about it. What we should do is just accept the impermanence of this world. It is “Itadakimasu (meaning to receive in Japanese).”
“Itadakimasu” is that “Itadaki (meaning a summit in Japanese) masu (meaning to increase in Japanese).” When we continue to climb a mountain, we can see how high it is. That is, a life is a never-ending path. An attitude of “Itadakimasu (I receive what comes) enhances our spirituality endlessly.
The world changes. If we hope today will be the same as yesterday, try to hold onto our current wealth, or cry over losing something, a mind of resistance will emerge. From there, worries and pains are generated.
A long time ago, Buddha preached the four inevitabilities of human life (birth, aging, sickness and death) are human fate, so receiving a life as a human means encountering struggle. The four inevitabilities are a symbol of the impermanence of this world and are life itself. If we resist it, pain will emerge. Therefore, when we just receive what comes with the spirit of “Itadakimasu”, struggle will disappear automatically.
It is interesting. For example, an event occurred at a point in the past, and a negative emotion occurred. I allowed it to linger even after that, and became discouraged. But, if each moment continues and exists in the universe, and we move from moment to moment and continue to live, an emotion which emerged due to an event of the past does not last by itself. It is us that chooses to hold onto such negativity. We continue to hold it while the world moves seamlessly, so in a sense, it is intentional.
Events themselves do not express any emotion. We just react to them emotionally. Habits and natures inside of us withdraw such emotions. If we become aware of this, any worries and pains will disappear right away.
Feel the World
Everything moves. When we see them move in a straight line, we cannot capture the nature of motion. Unless we understand nature, we only perceive things simply. If we see things flow just from left to right in a straight line, we spend each moment unconscious and we cannot perceive the whole picture.
When time passes, “the present” goes by. The present is marked by each moment, and the world moves. Even at this moment, time continues.
When I wake up every morning, I think, “Oh, morning has come again.” I feel time continues to flow eternally in my daily life as dashed lines on roads flow backward. A new time comes every moment. Morning comes and night comes. Morning comes again and so does night. This is repeated endlessly. Not only time flows, but also there are always meetings with new events. Time never stops, each tick is a new moment, and continues to provide us encounters with new events. It is an enormous energy. This energy moves the world. However, most people are not aware of it and unconsciously soak into the motion brought about by time.
Why does this exist? For those who begin to think like this, the world seems very new and mysterious. However, for people who are not aware of it or have no interest in it, they might say, “What are you talking about?” It might be impossible to express it with words. It is not to be expressed with words, but to be sensed.
We board on time and move. The world moves this way, which is called the era. Time and the era, which move the world where we exist, is a life itself.
Most people are not aware of it. Even if we are aware of it, we cannot resist it. We cannot see it with our eyes. However, it does exist surely. It moves the world with an enormous energy and weaves a history. What is it?
It is like a Galaxy
Time surely ticks in a one-way direction. If you see it moving from yesterday to today to tomorrow in a straight line, the range of your thinking must be narrow. If we see it in a simple way, it looks like it moves from left to right. However, when things move, there is surely a point which becomes a center. Only when things with connections gather around it and begin to rotate, the motion continues. It is not a line but a rotational motion.
It is weaved by “connections.” “A revolving motion” is “a connecting motion.” Connections are promises. There is an invisible thread of connections, which connect separate things as promised. Then, the whole rotates and encompasses its surroundings. It is like a galaxy.
The point in the center of the circle looks still. However, it rotates around something with a bigger role. If the center becomes still, the outer rotational motion does not occur. Everything works together, so individual circles can exist.
If scientific people listen to it, they might ask, “What kind of system is it?” It is their role to unlock and prove it.
An Indian saint called a particle “a universal electron.” Indian thoughts had no concept of particles, but he understood the existence. Then, can we explain particles physically? It is not to be explained physically, but it is just a fact that this world consists of such matters. It is the same as KA, a universally infinitesimal particle which is much finer than particles. The existence is not to be explained physically, but to be sensed. It is the truth. Humans have an ability to sense it.
When Einstein imagined the theory of relativity, there was no physical evidence at that time. It was later acknowledged. Now, people praise it as a great discovery, however if it was expressed before its time, would it be accepted in the same way? Although it is not seen physically, what people feel is the truth.
The World is a Life Itself
Humans tend to interpret what they cannot unlock with physical logic. If so, the topic would be like “Why were lives born?”
The reason why lives were born is that the world exists. This world is a life itself, and three dimensional lives were born to prove that. These connections become the source of emergence for the three dimensional lives. Relationships unite the order of this world.
This world moves with an order. Lives are generated due to this. Order exists because there is a will to tie it together. Its ultimatum is God. The reason why lives were born is that there is order. Three dimensional lives were created in order to make humans realize that the world is a life.
However, for those who cannot see order here, God does not exist and lives are not generated. Although people see order, the existence of God and the origin of lives change freely, depending on which level they see order. Even if it is the same life, what humans see changes, depending on where their consciousness is. The world is free like this, and seeds of lives exist everywhere. Its answer always waits for us, even in the future where science explores.
This world exists by a rotational motion. It moves as promised under the law. In order to do so, an axis is necessary. There is an axis in the center of everything, which rotates around a bigger axis. Since there is the earth’s axis, the earth rotates with precession, vibrates, and revolves around the solar axis. The sun also rotates and revolves around the central sun (the center of the galaxy). In the same way, the galaxy revolves around something bigger. Nothing exists alone. Everything links infinitely, and makes each other exist in such a relationship. That is, the world is one.
“Connections (En in Japanese)” are “Circles (En in Japanese)”
Why can such a complicated motion continue to exist? When opposite qualities face each other, a new thing emerges. This system is called “Taiko-Hassei” and everything is under “Taiko-Hassei” to make each other exist. Connections are created under promises and are weaved by a rotational motion.
When we look at only one circle, the center looks still. For example, the sun looks still from the viewpoint of the solar calendar. However, in a bigger picture, we can see that even the sun rotates by a bigger connection, spirals and continues to revolve around a bigger matter. The spiral is the same structure as the DNA of our lives.
The macro world, such as the solar system and the universe, and the micro world, such as DNA, exist under the same structure. Events and relationships which humans encounter in life are under the same structure. Very interesting!
Those who will live in the next era should be aware of harmonizing with the great will (the flow of the era) by understanding such a universal system, instead of living with personal desires and ambitions.
Confusion Has a Meaning and it is Temporary
Various events have occurred in the world in 2016, and the world has been very chaotic. No matter what measure is taken, we cannot find a resolution. A chaotic situation like mud has continued, but world leaders have still continued to take similar measures as they think they can solve issues with a superficial strategy. The time will come when they will realize it is meaningless sooner or later.
If we expand our viewpoint, we can see the current confusion has a meaning and is temporary. If our lifetime is 80 years, it is just one third from the 248 years of one Pluto’s revolutions. If we compare the 4.6 billion-year history of earth to one year, our 80-year lifetime is just 0.7 seconds, which is less than 1 second.
As the white dashed lines of the freeway flow backward, time never stops and ticks surely. Infinite life and death are repeated through it, as a giant and complicated mechanism is very simple. This means that if we change our viewpoints, we can understand it very easily.
Can You Have This Viewpoint?
Expanding my mind in this way, I am coming back to a physical viewpoint. Now, the Konohana Family is preparing to open a satellite shop called “Lotus Land,” but it is just an event for a moment from this majestic flow of time. As long as we live on earth, it is important for us to stay with a cycle of brevity and become aware of the fact that our lives are woven through this. If we do not harmonize with it, then we will return our life and take a broader perspective.
In order to perceive broadly in this life, we need to enhance our consciousness. When we enter a bigger cycle of life, we can look down at things. If we are trapped in what we see, we cannot see it completely. When our consciousness goes beyond it and we look at the world, we can stand on the side of what is operating this world. The lesson is to reach such a stage.
It is the same system for looking at the world and operating it, through seeing my mind and controlling myself.
It is just the same. Our train of thoughts and even planetary motion are under the same structure. It is just where we apply this system. Do we apply it to the big universe, the global ecosystem or an individual life?
There is surely a central axis in a rotational motion. The central axis is the time line. The phenomenal world exists due to “Taiko-Hassei” of “time” and “space.” A vertical time line emerged, and the horizontal function of the space line was generated. Then, phenomena occur and its sequence weaves the era.
When we cut away a portion, it looks like a cross. It is the “+ (TO)” letter of the Katakamuna (an ancient civilization which existed in East Asia about 13000 years ago), meaning integration. However, it looks like a cross because it is expressed on a plane surface. In fact, the place line rotates and follows the time line which continues to proceed seamlessly. This means that the rotational motion of the spatial line always spirals. Moreover, the time line in the center revolves around a bigger time line and spirals. It is a very complicated relationship.
All phenomena rotate. What kind of connections do we have for phenomena we encounter through rotational motion? Is it close or far? The place changes, depending on that, and keeps a rotational motion under “Taiko-Hassei,” which is a life.
Circles (Connections) are infinite and the time line penetrates through every core. Therefore, time lines are everywhere in this world. Our body consists of about 60 trillion cells, and the time line penetrates in each cell. What an incredible universe!
Describing a spiral means that there is always a cycle. Each rotation has its own cycle. We humans have a cycle of 80-years per lifetime, and insects have a cycle of a few months. Bacteria might have a cycle of a few seconds and even stars have a cycle of billions of years. Infinite time lines from micro to macrocosm interlock complexly. It is the time line that penetrates all. When we can understand its structure, we can say that the era which weaves time is a life, and we, those who live the era are time travelers.
When connections are cut, a rotational motion stops and phenomena disappear. That is, a rotational motion sustains connections.
I wondered why the Japanese currency is Yen (En in Japanese) yesterday, and right now Isadon talked about circles (En in Japanese). How interesting!
Money is the blood of society. It circulates the world, connects every corner, and returns again. Everything is a rotational motion. It is woven by connections. It is the same structure with the blood that which circulates our body and plays a role.
Our lives exists by a rotational motion. Without it, the time line disappears and so do phenomena.
It is called death. Lifetime is like a motion of flywheels. When a rotation begins, connections emerge, a form of one life is established, and an original cycle of the life begins. When the rotation ends, it is the end of a lifetime. The stronger and broader the rotation becomes, the longer the cycle becomes. The weaker the rotation becomes, the shorter the cycle becomes. It interlocks with other rotational motions and weaves a fabric of a majestic life, which is the real figure of this world.
Everything is a Frame which Weaves from the Beginning to the End of the Universe
I wonder why I exist. The form of me exists by being woven by connections, but why do connections emerge? At least, I do not feel I make myself exist intentionally, but isn’t my intention functioning after all because connections emerge?
Connections are generated when an intention functions. An intention (Ito in Japanese) is a thread (Ito in Japanese). An invisible thread of connections connect separate things. As a result, a rotational motion emerges and phenomena occur.
Humans are a self who they see and who they do not. When they reach a certain stage, they discover a new self who they did not recognize in the past. However, the new self has been here since before we came into consciousness.
We have existed even since before we were born. What we created in the past becomes causes and as a result, and phenomena emerge. It is called fate. This world exists under the law of cause and effect where phenomena occur appropriate to fate. The present exists as a story which has continued from a distant past. Connections which weave even this moment lead to the next event, and a new connection emerges from there again. In this manner, a story continues to unfurl. The beginning of fate is that of the universe. Also, the end of fate is that of the universe. So, it continues forever. Every existence is just a frame which connects from the beginning of the universe to the end of the universe.
The end of the universe means returning to the potential world. It is an empty state from the universal structure. Emptiness is eternity, which we, existences in the phenomenal world, cannot interpret. Therefore, we can say it is just a moment.
The universe endlessly repeats the process of birth, maintenance, destruction and emptiness. The last frame overlaps with the next new frame. It is empty and eternal. However, those who live in the phenomenal world like us tend to consider the end just as the beginning. The Lotus Sutra has a word of “Sanzen-Jindengo (three thousand is like a piece of dust in the infinite timeframe). It is said the universe repeats the process from birth to disappearance three thousand times. Three thousand times means infinite repetition beyond human thoughts.
When we come to think of things in such a scale, we are not trapped in what is close to us. However, it does not mean it is all right to neglect what is in front of us and our daily life such as waking up in the morning, having meals, and working. All phenomena exist appropriately to our level of consciousness, so we should not consider them as nothing. At the same time, it is just a momentary event from the majestic universal drama, so we do not have to be trapped in it. It is important to stay with it as information without being trapped in it.
The Biggest Theme for Humans
People cut away a part of a story, and consider it as themselves. However, everything is connected and the current self exists. If we cut away a part and try to perceive ourselves, we cannot reach the truth. Fate is woven through each moment, and phenomena change one after another. When the past is driven into distant memories, people tend to think only what they remember now is themselves. However, the result of fate which we have woven including far memories is us. That is, we are the universe itself.
When we analyze the meanings of fate (INNEN in Japanese) from the viewpoint of Katakamuna, I means a position, N strengthens the meaning of the previous sound (I), and NE means roots. Therefore, when a position of something is specified, it expands in an invisible place as roots, which is fate.
That is, fate is very deep-rooted. The result of fate from the past is manifested now. In other words, we can say that current phenomena indicate fate from the past like roots. Therefore, if we observe the current self deeply, even if we do not think of our past lives, we can see what kind of path we have taken in the past.
Even if it is the same event, we can interpret it differently due to the differences in our level of consciousness. So, our current mind weaves the future.
How high or low and broad or narrow is our consciousness? The amplitude of the space line and accuracy of the cycles change depending on awareness. How to express it is up to us. Each person has an original history. Information based on their past experiences is incorporated in the DNA by their personality and nature. The information becomes a base, which creates the future. Therefore, an intention, which weaves connections, is the universal law which is in charge of the reincarnation of life and also the exact intention of the person.
But, unless we know such a system, the intention becomes an unconscious one. Can we still call it an intention?
It is a state where an intention which has been woven unconsciously is expressed unconsciously. When we become aware of it and live, we can control our lives by ourselves. If it expands more, we can grow to the level of operating this world of a life. There is a level where people cannot control themselves and are controlled by ego. Or we can stand at the position of operating this world, so human possibility is really diverse.
In order to open a possibility, a motivation to explore it is necessary. If there is a motivation to seek it, time moves to reach there. The destination of the train of time changes by an intention. Unless an intention functions, unconscious time just passes by. It is called an unconscious intention.
For example, if people encounter an accident, many people consider themselves as a victim and blame others. However, in fact, we encounter it by fate which our previous self had established. On the other hand, it is not right to think everything is our fault.
It is an opportunity to learn the origin of things. That is why, we cannot get emotional. When we perceive things objectively without any emotion, it becomes a learning opportunity and accumulation to understand this world. We can expand our capacity by this, and live a life with a higher and broader will.
On the contrary, if we are trapped in our emotions and interpret things with a specific concept, we cannot make it a learning opportunity anymore and continue to stay in the same state. This means a decline in the world which always continues to change and transform. There are many people who do not recognize that they are emotional. They would like to judge things calmly, but in fact, they do it based on unconscious emotions, however they are not aware of this. In the modern era, such people’s emotions pile up, and emotions clash with each other on the national level, which becomes a major cause of conflict.
It is the biggest theme for humans to see themselves calmly and know who they are. We can limit our possibility, depending on our state, or expand it infinitely.
Majestic Habits and Nature
Connections continue by circles. The motion of the time line looks like a straight line. However, if we look at it without cutting away a part, everything rotates. The rotational motion works with the motion of the time line, it becomes a spiral. The planets of the solar system spiral and orbit the sun. The sun also spirals, orbits the galaxy and moves in the universe. Such a motion is the structure of this world itself.
Each planet of the solar system has an individuality. Mercury, the closest planet which indicates communication and rapidness orbits the sun rapidly. Venus, a planet which expresses love and beauty describes a steady and beautiful orbit of an exact circle. Earth describes a subtle ellipse and rotates with a groove. Mars which indicates passion and actions describe an extreme ellipse and rotates dynamically. Each orbit and speed is different, and each motion is a habit and nature in itself. Each planet orbits the sun as it is, works with each other, moves together, and the whole creates a harmony.
Each star marks a cycle at a certain rhythm with their habits and nature, and moves in the same pattern. Because its individuality exists as promised, it can work with each other. The time line of the solar system is the sun, but the sun also moves with habits and a nature as promised.
I see! Habits and nature are order. If there is no habit at all and everything is completely free, a cycle would not be generated. So then nothing can take a stance and work with each other.
That is right. Habits and nature are order. In terms of the Konohana Family community, I am the time line and everyone else orbits me with their habits and nature. When I show them a direction to go, some follow it and some move farther away from it. When I think they might not come back, they take a detour and come back because they are members after all.
In other words, habits and nature are individualities. What kind of characteristics do we have, and what kind of motion do we have in the whole? If we unconsciously take actions with habits and nature, we might disturb the entire harmony. However, if we perceive it objectively, and utilize it as individuality, we can expand diversity and open the whole possibility. Therefore, it is not to remove habits and nature, but to utilize them effectively. Since there are habits and nature, motions are generated in this world and phenomena occur. Humans, planets, and galaxies have habits and a nature. The ultimate and majestic habits and nature is the real figure of God.
Exactly! God has habits and a nature, so there is order in the world! The earth and the sun has an order and spiral, so morning and night come every day, four seasons are generated, and our life activities become possible. If there is no order and everyone moves separately, there would be no day or no season. So, we would not know when to sow seeds to raise crops. First of all, lives themselves cannot be born. Since there are habits and nature, a cycle is generated and we can live.
It is the promise of life. Everything exists in a rule of God’s habits and nature.
Each star is really unique. When I look at it individually, it is one-sided. For example, Jupiter plays a role of “expansion” and “development” and Saturn plays a role of “control” and “elimination.” A community cannot exist only with expansion or elimination. When what cannot exist alone gathers, expresses each individuality, and creates a network, the whole can keep balance. Each individual is unique and one-sided, and at the same time, the whole is in harmony. It is the universal law.
The awakening of common people is like this. According to the ancient Chinese calendar, the 21st century is considered as “the era of awakening for common people.” In the past, each ideology and religion defined values such as abundance and excellence, and everyone sought the same ideal uniformly. However, the real figure of the universe is not like that. As a matter of fact, YOU are extremely unique and original. Nobody else is like you. If people are not aware of this, individualities might be just a cause of disharmony. However, if you understand it fully, and contribute to society by playing your original role, you will be utilized and people will be happy that you are here. It is the era for common people to create such a harmony. If everyone is unique and is utilized fully, instead of making everyone the same with uniform values, everyone becomes essential. It is a very abundant world.
Ordinary “Universal Critic”
When I look at you, I think you are having fun. When you do something, you do not do it by yourself, do you? For example, when you make a presentation, you work with Mika-chan. When you make a demon mask, you work with Ryochin. When you make Konohana microorganisms, you work with Hiromi-chan. In this way, you do things through partnership with various people and teams including outsiders, depending on the situation. If we work with such unique people, a different world is created in each situation. We can do what we cannot do alone. I think it is the structure of this world itself.
It is very interesting and joyful. Not everything is given to me. Intuition and wisdom comes up to me once in a while, but if I try to do everything alone, it would be impossible. For example, when making a demon mask, I have a kind of sense, but there is another person who creates it. I am involved in various things and offer something. I feel I do everything, but as a matter of fact, I cannot do anything by myself. When various people are involved, maximizing their individuality, we can achieve what ordinary people cannot do. I think the era will begin when individuals utilize their advantages in the future.
I think it will be possible anywhere. Right now, our consciousness is trapped in the frame of ourselves, so each individual works separately. However, if our consciousness is freed, it will occur everywhere.
Those who want to be self-contained tend to hold what they do by themselves. It seems like I am swimming on the surface. I am involved in various things, and there is nothing I am doing by myself. It is one of the individualities.
When you have worries, you are worried about other people.
When I think what to do, it is all about other people. I perceive my personality, so I do not get emotional about myself. I can say it is a kind of destiny. When I say it is a destiny, it seems to be fixed. However, it is not fixed at all. If I have to choose a word, I am like a “universal critic.”
It is also an individuality.
However, the content itself which I talk about is not unique. What I talk about is the law of this world, so it is not unique at all. It is just an ordinary thing. It is difficult for most people to get out of their ego and see the world objectively, so I might look unique. But, once people stand at that position, they will understand that I just talk about extremely ordinary matters.
All lives spiral in a certain cycle. Our daily life, in which time moves from yesterday to tomorrow, is a spiral structure. Naturally stars move in this way, so we all exist under such a system. If people cut away a part, have the filter of an ego, say “I do not understand it” and deny it, and do not take in new information, they reach a conclusion that they cannot understand it. However, if we accept it as information with a flexible attitude, and think logically, we can understand it easily.
We are given life in such a system every day. When I listen to the structure of the world this way, I get moved again, feeling “It is awesome!” But, I cannot see such a thing in my daily life and live. That is why, I get surprised this much now.
This means that your view is so narrow. You only see what is around you.
A long time ago, when there was no clock and calendars, people saw planetary motion, and knew the transition of seasons. They applied it to hunting and farming, so they could survive. The planetary motion was the only clue that taught them the transition of the world. People could connect their lives by putting their consciousness toward it. Living was directly connected with planetary motion for them.
A long time ago, people talked with the divine and lived with the universe. They sensed the air of each moment, felt the moisture, sensed natural disasters and the threat of beasts with intuition, and escaped from it. This means that they had such a sharp intuition.
Intuition is to sense the planetary motion of the “divine” and feel the crisis of a moment, which is a “point.” (Both divine and points are pronounced as Ten in Japanese.) Those who were able to sustain their lives by that connected DNA continued into the future. Their descendants are us. That is, we are like a legacy which was generated in an extension of the DNA of intuition to sense the divine and points of time.
However, modern people have forgotten that completely, have drowned into material desires, and their intuition to sense what is really necessary has been paralyzed. Therefore, a huge confusion has occurred in the lives and society of the modern era.
A Point (Ten in Japanese) is the Divine (Ten in Japanese)
Time flows continuously. The future comes closer to us with each moment, and the past becomes farther away. It is a rotational motion, so time makes a circuit and comes back around. However, even if it is a cycle of one year or that of one lifetime, it does not return to the same point A, but reaches point A’ which has evolved for one cycle.
When a rotation stops and the time line disappears, life marks an end. But the elements that consisted of that life enter each subtle cycle. When the cycle ends as a human, the body returns to a cycle of atoms, and is incorporated into the cycle of the next role. Death belongs to the same cycle of life. It is a chain of life and death where a part of the body returns to nature every day, and we take in food which becomes a part of the body. It is also a rotational motion and a spiral motion.
When we talked about “the project of departure” at the community meeting the other day, Mika-chan described a diagram of the system of life. In the diagram, the time line was described in a straight line, and looked to flow in the same way. But, she said that the parts except for “life” which are periods of “death” are “points.”
There are two kinds of death. One is death in the phenomenal world (world with existence). It comes and goes between the visible and invisible world. In this case, although the body is destroyed, the soul is not dismantled. The other one is death in the potential world (world with no-existence). In this case, the soul is dismantled, returns to the potential world which is the source of everything, and becomes empty. It is a world where we reach as a result of enlightenment.
The visible world is supported by the invisible world behind it. Something like minds, personalities, and the nature of substances are invisible. The phenomenal world exists under “Taiko-Hassei” between the visible and invisible world. Death in the phenomenal world is to go from a visible place to an invisible place. When a certain period passes, the soul returns to the visible place again. It is life and death in the phenomenal world that repeats a cycle of the visible and invisible world. And a steady time continues to flow there.
On the contrary, death in the potential world is disappearance. Disappearance is a state where ego disappears, so there is no interpretation. Time also disappears. Therefore, we can say it is a point. Or, it means that we enter a cycle in which the living cannot interpret, so it is extremely long. It is existence and non-existence. It is long and short. Even if we try to perceive it with the thinking of the phenomenal world, we cannot understand it at all. A point (Ten in Japanese) is the divine (Ten in Japanese), which is the universe.
The phenomenal world (world with existence) exists under a dualistic structure with the visible and invisible world. If the potential world (world with non-existence) which is the source of everything is included, the world exists under a triplex structure. As the visible and invisible world exists under “Taiko-Hassei,” the phenomenal and potential world exist under it as well.
The cycle of life and death in the phenomenal world is a double helix where something visible intersects with something invisible. Moreover, if the cycle of life and death in the potential world is added, it becomes a triplex helix where the soul goes even to the potential world. There are helixes only in the phenomenal world and helixes in the entire world including the potential world, too. And the time line penetrates at its core.
Time continues to flow steadily in the cycle of the phenomenal world. However, in the cycle of the entire world including the potential world, time flows and stops repeatedly. In this manner, the universe repeats emergence and disappearance. When this cycle is expressed in a diagram, it looks like a lotus root. It is called the “lotus universe.”
Both “time (TOKI in Japanese)” and “space (TOKORO in Japanese) begins with TO in Japanese. TO means integration. Time (TOKI) means that integration (TO) emerges (KI). KO in TOKORO (place) means to roll over and RO means a hollow state. That is, an integrated energy of time flows and something rolls over from there. Then, the place is generated and phenomena occur. However, in fact, phenomena are fleeting things with a hollow state.
When the space line is generated, phenomena occur. We can see them, so they look steady. However, visible forms continue to change, so in fact, we cannot capture them. We cannot capture things in the visible world. Therefore, the phenomenal world is called “the impermanence of all things.”
We gain a form and appear into the visible world, but it is temporary. We can say that the invisible world behind the forms is our real figure. Either world flows with time and continues to change.
The place (TOKORO) is in a hollow state, so the time line can penetrate through it.
This world exists only when both time and space exist. Time and space exist under “Taiko-Hassei” and support each other simultaneously.
“You Got it?”
God created an interesting world.
The more we unlock it, the more we become moved with a feeling of “this law is everywhere!” Everything from the invisibly subtle microcosmic world to the giant macrocosmic world is under the same law. This means everything is given a really thorough consideration. However, the law is very simple. In this manner, a majestic world is created.
When I think of the real figure of the origin which has created this world, I get so moved by its greatness that I feel it is adorable, saying “You have done this much.” Thinking like that, God smiled and said, “You got it?”
We shared our thoughts with each other, which is great.
The reality of the universe exists there. When our human thoughts get used to the law, its reality will be unlocked. However, it is eternal and infinite. There is always an unknown future.
Now, people talk about God under the name of religions on earth. However, they see God with their emotions. Therefore, people make conflicts and wars under the name of God, and die. What narrow viewpoints do people see things with?
We cannot see the reality of God if we get emotional. Being emotional means seeing things with their own habits and natures. If so, we cannot see the reality and truth. It is important to free ourselves and sense it without any emotions, our own habits and nature. It is to be sensed, so we cannot talk with words.
That is why, we should know ourselves. Only when we know our habits and nature, and objectively know how disproportionately we see things, we will begin to know this world.
It is difficult for humans to do so. Although their habits and nature are pointed out, they cannot see their reality.
It is because people look from the inside out. They see things only through the filter of their ego. As long as we exist, we have a viewpoint to recognize, however, at the same time, we need to have a viewpoint to see ourselves from outside without the filter of our ego. This means that the distance from other people disappears. Other people’s viewpoints become our own, and our viewpoints become theirs. It is the world where I am you and you are I without any boundaries. Removing (Tori in Japanese) the gap (Sa in Japanese) between you and me leads to enlightenment (Satori in Japanese).
In order to manifest such a world, people need to gather and live in one boat. As people have survived as one life as a community during the severe era a long time ago, we will gather again, live as one life as a community and manifest the truth of this world. It is the only way for modern society to get out of confusion, where individuals get out of control and see things only from their ego. No matter how much we talk about the ideal world, if we do not do that, a new world will not emerge.
Can we reach a mental state where we can interpret this? All answers exist there.
When God smiles, you share this mind with God. Listening to it this way now, I feel his mind, too.
When I feel the existence of God, tears come out.
You are just trying to convey such a mind to everyone. You just want to feel it with everyone and understand each other with heart.
I believe in God, so I try to convey his greatness to people. However, when I say, “God exists,” people try to perceive it from their level of consciousness. Then, they do not understand what I mean anymore.
If I talk about his greatness, people try to interpret it based on their own concept. Then, his greatness cannot be conveyed again. So, if I say, “You should sense it,” people try to sense it at their level of consciousness again. After all, they do not understand what I mean.
I think it might be impossible. Those who encountered the scene like you can sense the air of the place, and get it. In order to sense it, it is necessary not only to be there but also to stay with it. However, those who keep their own concept interpret through their perspective anyways. So, we cannot understand each other. Nothing can be done about it.
In fact, you are just trying to understand each other. However, everyone sees things through their ego, so they cannot get it.
God is the real figure of this world, so we can get access to it from anywhere. It is different from what religions have piled up. Its purpose is different. Originally, religions are the path to understand the real figure of this world, instead of gratifying wishes and saving people.
When it is expressed with words, the nature is already slightly different. When we talk about understanding the real figure of this world, humans might try to learn it as knowledge. But, it is not true. We are the world itself, and can understand our unity and exist.
When we reach there, events on earth are not important anymore. There are infinite perspectives, and we can reach the mind of “Everything is fine” from anywhere. In a sense, it is a state of “non-existence.” However, phenomena “do exist.” The entity exists.
For example, if everyone’s mind becomes like “Everything is fine” at the community meeting, it would be proof that the whole is coming to a harmonious point.
If such a place is established here, visitors will wonder with a mysterious sense, “Well…Where is this?”
Ego is not for Gratifying but for Transcending
～From Humans To HITO～
Now, we are preparing for Lotus Land which will open on March 21st next year. Y-san, who visited here yesterday for the first time in months, said, “I feel the Konohana Family has changed enormously.” A part of Lotus Land will be a café, and I thought we need to indicate calories for meals. Then, she said she had experiences as a national registered dietician, and wants to be involved in its management. She sought her dream, went to Kyushu, did her best, but things did not go so well. After that, she came to consult with me, and encountered the project of Lotus Land.
As a matter of fact, we did not begin this project intentionally. We have received serendipitous encounters, and proceeded according to the flow. As a result, encounters with necessary things and people like her have come at a necessary timing. She said that she has thought hard by herself and made plans, but nothings has been successful. When I told her about how the plan of Lotus Land proceeded, she asked me, “Why is it going so well?” Then, I answered, “It is because we have woven connections.”
When we think and plan things with our brain, we ignore connections and do things with ego and desires. So, things do not go well. There is a cycle of the place with time as its axis in this world. When we deviate from the cycle, we deviate from the nature of this world. If we board on this cycle, things (the time line) flow naturally and things (the place line) are achieved automatically. In order to do so, unless we reach a certain state, we cannot encounter such a world.
Although something reaches a dead end, there is the next world ahead of the dead end. Even if A reaches a dead end, there is A’. In this manner, we can make a breakthrough. Although it looks the same, A’ has advanced for one cycle and it is different from the previous A. It is essential to transcend our ego and become the spirit of “receiving answers.” Ego is not to be gratified, but to be controlled and transcended. Only when people reach such a spiritual state, what to do in accordance with the flow will come up automatically.
Humans try to utilize themselves based on ego, and plot various things. However, when we transcend ego and see this world, we can see that the world continues to give us order. The world always gives us the next A’. Although we understand it or not, we are given life in such a structure. And today is always a new world which is different from yesterday.
When humans understand this structure, they will become an existence to understand from the beginning to the end of the universal structure which proceeds in “HI HU MI YO I MU NA YA KO TO (meaning one to ten in Japanese), which is “HITO.”
The macro-cosmos is a giant life. Everything from the galaxy, the solar system, the earth, the global ecosystem, nations, human bodies to each cell has a fractal configuration. The extremely giant macro-cosmos and the invisible micro-cosmos move under the same structure. This world is a vortex of fractal figures.
Who moves it? What we can say it is?
