“A Clear Sky”

A ninth grader named Kanoko represented the junior high school which she goes to, and participated in the 55th English Speech Contest for Junior High School Students of Fujinomiya-City on September 7th. The title of her speech was “A Clear Sky.” She placed her life into a lotus flower in her speech. When she did not go to school in her life, she was like in the mud. Then, she went through various experiences at a new place, and is growing every day to bloom a beautiful lotus flower in her life. As a result of expressing her life poetically in English, she got the second prize and advanced to the English Speech Contest of the East Shizuoka Prefecture.

The contest of the eastern district was held on September 21st, about two weeks after the municipal one. Her genuine smile attracted the audience and she received the biggest applause out of all of the participants. A judge said, “Appealing to the mind is important at this English Speech Contest.” Moreover, both judges praised her, saying, “First of all, the content of her speech is wonderful. Also, it matches with her personality.” As a result, she successfully won the first prize!

This is how she gained a ticket to move to the prefectural contest which was held on October 4th, about two weeks after the regional one. As she said, “I was not nervous, but I could not put my soul into my speech. So, I have some regret,” she could not maximize her charms. Also, the level of the participants was so high that, unfortunately, she could not advance to the national contest.

However, she has learned a lot through her participation in the contest, and her mind has grown bigger. After the contest, she said, “I will make more efforts, driven by regret.” Her great efforts have moved us, and given a great impact on the Konohana children who became interested in English thanks to her.

Isadon, who has supported her in terms of her mentality, made the following comment:
I have given advice that she should put her soul into her words throughout this speech contest. When I heard her speech on the previous day of the contest of the eastern district, I thought, “Her soul has begun to echo in her words finally. That was the best speech I have ever heard.” Therefore, the vibrancy which was beyond her English abilities echoed at the speech contest site, and led her to the first prize at the eastern district.

To tell you the truth, a vision came up to me the other day. In the vision, she is an adult and talks in front of many people in English. There is so much important data to show about the model of the new era to the world, as exemplified by the Konohana Family. When I was listening to her speech, I thought, “Here is an appropriate person for the next generation to convey such important messages.” Then, I said to her, “This contest is just one step in your life. These steps will continue all throughout your life. Please understand this and work on this contest.”

Now that English is the world’s official language, I saw a vision in which she will convey the Konohana spirituality, in English, in the future. I would like her to live a sacred life as, ultimately, a sacred person.

At first, I thought she would advance to the national contest, but unfortunately it did not come true. She looked a little regretful, but she knew that she has another path. We confirmed that this is the beginning of the next step. Also, I said to her, “Experiencing such a setback is the same as lotus flowers blooming out of the mud.”

In fact, I said to her, “Now that the English Speech Contest for Junior High School Students is over, it is time to begin to prepare for the one for High School Students!” She had a great experience this time, so I am looking forward to her bright future. I really appreciate everyone who has stayed with her and supported her in many ways to weave her story together. Thank you so much.”

It seems like a big soul is hidden in her small body. It is easy to imagine that she will make a speech on the importance of spirituality to people in the world in the near future. Surely, she will bloom as a beautiful flower in her life.

 

 

A Clear Sky

In early summer lotus flowers begin to bloom around my house. I’m always impressed with the beautiful flowers from the muddy pots. Looking at them reminds me of my past.

I was in the sixth grade when I stopped going to school. I didn’t like to study at all. I thought there was no need for me to attend my classes. I took care of my younger brother at home. I also spent my days doing things I liked to do. People around me often said “Go to school, or you’ll be in trouble.” I ignored all their advice. I was very selfish. I hate to admit it but I was stuck in the mud.

I came to a turning point in my life when I was thirteen. My family moved from Hokkaido to Fujinomiya to a community that consists of 100 members who received us warmly. I felt I was a part of this big family. For the first time I tried to be more open and talked with people of all ages.

One day an older man from the community said to me “Go to school, then you will be able to have experiences necessary for your age.” His words echoed in my mind. I tried to check myself again and again. Finally, I admitted that I had been making excuses to avoid school. It was time for me to go. I felt brighter and I looked forward to having new friends.

I enrolled, but had some troubles at my new school. I had a conflict with one of my classmates because of some communication on LINE. He and his close friends began to bully me. I was sad. I wanted to change and build a better relationship with them. In the past I would just blame everybody else and escape from school. But this time I asked myself. “What have I done?” I discovered that I was also wrong. I tried to listen to their opinions. Little by little they became friendly to me. They helped me to see things from many angles. It was time for me to grow.

I didn’t like science and math before. Should I give up on these subjects again or try harder this time? I decided to spend more time studying them. I read my textbooks in advance. Every time I solve the problems by myself, I’m excited like a scientist who discovers something new. I realized that a little more effort on what seemed so difficult can be interesting.

I enjoy my school life now. The simple school routines like, the morning greetings, handing in my assignments on time, serving school lunch and so on, make me more responsible. Working with my juniors is very challenging. Taking all the tests is very nerve-wracking. Playing soccer with my team is exciting. Listening to the teachers can be interesting or sometimes boring. Everything has a meaning and I’m growing every day. I treasure all these experiences and the friendships.

I remember the passage I read before. “Every child is a different kind of flower and all together makes this world a beautiful garden.” I will continue to open my heart and work harder. I’m determined to bloom like the lotus flower under the clear blue sky. What about you? What kind of flower are you? I’m excited to see you bloom too.

The Time to Swing into the Era is the 21st Century

3e99bbfc9e09c829f79d798d762204f6

The 21st century is the opening toward the year 3000!
Now that the era has entered the 21st century, a new time has begun toward the year 3000. However, looking at the current society, still so many people have been controlled by the materialistic values of the previous millennium. Therefore, modern people are hesitant to find a new value and move toward the future. As a result, such human figures have manifested as a world of confusion and hopelessness. Clearly, this is a message from the flow of the new era. However, unless we understand this deeply and take a step toward a hopeful direction, this chaos will continue.

Now is the time when we humans have an opportunity to step into a hopeful direction, which is all being revealed by the era. In addition, it prepares the energy we need to reach there. Now all preparations have been completed!

As the driving force, the era is allowing us to “repel”, a method of changing the orbit of a spacecraft by utilizing the gravity of a planet. Moreover, this also makes it possible to accelerate the spacecraft by utilizing the planet’s orbital motion.

The strongest driving force for modern people is the flow of the new era, which began on “the winter solstice of the galaxy” on December 21st, 2012. Just like the Earth’s winter solstice, the amount of light begins to increase. The solar system has passed the winter solstice after 25,800 years and a great transitional stage has begun, turning from an era of darkness into light. The time has come when we humans are allowed to harmonize with this great turning point, and repel with the new era toward the year 3000!

Humans are given an advanced ability to understand this exquisite system of “repelling” and physically explore the universe. And spiritually, if each one of us gains a high-dimensional consciousness, we will be able to reach this state of travelling in the universe even in zero gravity, utilizing the free energy which exists everywhere in this world. The next millennium is the era when we humans will be aware of how to travel the universe in such a state.

What is required of us is the “will” to sense the changes of the era and get on its flow.

地球背景

When we free our minds,
we can understand that we freely travel in the vast universe.

  It is not a simple spacewalk,
     but a state of traveling in the universe with WILL

“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.


Exploring This world from “Blood” ~Blood Donation / Blood Infusion~

Nut and Mind are high school students from Thailand who are here to learn our way of living in the Konohana Family. In order to broaden their worldview, a presentation about “Food”, a familiar theme in general, has been given to them. When the last session had finished, Mind asked Isadon about blood donation.

Mind:
Do you donate blood in Japan?

Isadon:
Originally, each spirit is independent. Therefore, the blood that indicates each characteristic of life is also a spiritually independent existence. In fact, blood is independent regardless of kinship, such as parents and children or brothers and sisters.

For example, is it possible to transplant organs, but you cannot mix your heart and Nut’s heart, can you? Therefore, the heart does not only carry nutrients through the blood, but it also consolidates our body as one network. Blood circulates through the heart, just like the solar magnetic field of the solar system which aligns to collect all of the stars. Therefore, originally blood should not be mixed with each other.

Medical care has developed and people have begun to transfuse; however, spiritually that kind of action brings confusion. If you transfuse blood with modern technology, the blood will eventually change in its circulation, won’t it? For example, in order to displace all the blood, it is told that it takes four months. This means that during that period, confusion occurs spiritually. Therefore, it is better not to mix blood as much as you can.

Mind:
Do you mean it is better not to transfuse?

Isadon:
If you need to get a transfusion then do not refuse it, however it is important to maintain your own spiritual harmony

If you are in the situation that you need a transfusion than it must be serious. However, it is important to live without experiencing such a situation, and more so live with a beautiful spirit.

If one has a mind that “I don’t want to die”, one wants to try anything one can to live. However, if you have been mentally prepared, your mind will turn to “Life is given, so I live a fruitful life and I can return it anytime”, and without depending on transfusion, as long as you have certain longevity, your life will revive. However, if you do not have such a mind, and you just want to live, and you choose whatever the means necessary, such as transfusion, then that mind is clouded.

When there was no technology for transfusions, people lived their lives more prepared for death. Nowadays, people have become dependent on technology to live, and no longer understand the meaning of their lives. Prior to technology, people were more accustomed to the certainty of death, and they lived with a high awareness for life. Today, people do not take life as serious because there is so much technology to make our lives easier, live longer, and live for gratification. If you live everyday seriously and improve your own heart, your day will be fulfilled so that your heart turns to a feeling of “I can die at anytime”.

As science and technology develop, peoples’ lives become richer and their minds become more fixed on fulfilling material wealth. Related to this, people have lost the meaning for life and seek only to prolong their own lives.

Originally, the meaning of our lives with a physical body was not concerned with material issues. The aim was to heighten our spiritual awareness, to realize where we came from, and to go back to the spiritual world after achieving our life purpose.

Therefore, as modern people, if you forget such a thing and your consciousness gives priority on physical matters, it will create confusion in society.

We, all live with a promise that someday we will die. So, it is important to live everyday based on an absolute promise that we will reach death.

Not transfusing means that you will have an extra preparation in your life. Primarily, human beings are not physical beings, but spiritual beings. When you think of life as a link to a world after death, then death isn’t fearful. We can consider of how each spirit is individually unique. Before, I spoke about how blood is a passage which collects polluted matter and filters it. Since blood is a passage, when you take others’ blood in, your blood will be also be spiritually polluted.

If modern medical technology is superior, and we are so grateful to live with it, then we will receive a long life. However, that means that you must receive others’ spiritual and physical pollution into your body the transfusion process. Nevertheless, I cannot deny such an act when someone is in need.

It is important to know such a way to purify your own spirit. If you make your life clean and purify your blood, you can always live as a beautiful person.

One:
Currently, we do have a blood donation campaign in Thailand. This is an action to “Help other lives through donating blood”.

Isadon:
That way of thinking is only putting a value on the longevity of life, without questioning the quality of life. Therefore, as more of this kind of thinking develops, a more confused society will manifest.

One:
I thought blood donation was a good thing to do.

Isadon:
Unfortunately, this is still a superficial way of understanding life.

Having preparation in life, and living with a good grace, means that the person’s life is healthy and harmonized with the way of life that the divine people have lived on earth. This is the way of thinking for people who live in the new era.

One:
When we hold the blood donation campaign, it is advertised as “this is the best deed for making other people live longer.”

Isadon:
That is the way of thinking with modern and shallow medical care. However, that does not solve more fundamental problems, and due to this, modern medical practice continues to expand.

One:
So I should be happy because I am a low blood pressure person.

Isadon:
If you have low blood pressure, then you can see this as both positive and negative. This is a reflection of your spirit, and in order to improve that status, you can change how you think, which will influence your diet, and your life with become healthier without low blood pressure.

One:
There is also a food therapy program to raise blood pressure in Thailand.

Isadon:
You should do that for balancing your spirit rather than for your physical health. Health is a reflection of a balanced spirit. If you only focus on physical health, then you will develop issues with your spiritual body. It will bring a problem for your life in another sense if your spirit is not healthy, because you only have a physical outlook of “Let’s be healthy!” Therefore, it is important to live by facing yourself at all times. Various stagnations show you the reality of your spirit, so do not escape from them. In that sense, that sounds like practicing with the mind of a monk, but currently, even monks do not do this much. (laughs)

Nut:
Currently, our spirit is not healthy. Therefore, many people have diseases and stay in an unhealthy state. So, how can we know the cause of the disease and how can we improve these states?

Isadon:
First of all, an unhealthy human state is influenced through a diseased earth. It can be argued that the society is sick. Don’t you think that sick people are in a poor situation? However, in fact those sick people create a burden on society.

If there are problems in society and there are people who feel uneasy, then there are people who become happy – they are people from insurance companies. When people get in a dispute, there are people who become happy – they are lawyers. Judges’ who keep their jobs would also feel content. When people become greedy and want to have unnecessary things, there are people who become happy – they are manufacturers. When sick people increase, there are people who become happy – they are pharmaceutical companies and doctors who profit from these situations. Therefore, this world is made of confusion and problems.

Nut:
Isadon told us everyone has an original spirit, but that science has categorized blood types. What does this mean?

Isadon:
Blood types roughly show the tendencies of individual characteristics. Even if there is someone who has the same blood type, each one of us are surrounded by different elements such as the environment and era. The blood sent from heart is a passage of life and the blood itself is spiritual; therefore, blood types can categorize one’s spirituality. When transfusion had started, there was no categorization at that time. From there, the blood was analyzed by science and the differences became clear. Then we were able to see that each of us is an original being. Therefore, ultimately, we have reached the point that blood should not be mixed. When we see someone’s personality by blood type, we can see only some rough tendencies; however, if we can look more accurately, then we end up finding that each one of us are original beings.

The current medical has put a high priority on people living longer, but there is also an importance on death. This is a short, beautiful, and wonderful life, isn’t it? The reason why people try to live longer by depending on the medical system is that medical care has saved people’s lives even though people do not face it themselves.

Not only for disease, but it is important to reflect back on yourself when you encounter any problems, and to find out the cause. In a sense, medical care has deprived us of an opportunity to reflect back on ourselves. That is because medical care itself misses the original purpose and has become focused on making money. This also deprives us from our life purpose as human beings.

Since birth, human beings meet various events, and live in order to develop themselves through knowing who they are. As a result we heightened our spirituality, let go of attachments, and leave our body with our own spiritual value. This is the real purpose of life.

Once you understand this, each one of you will learn from what you encounter in your life and grow. If so, there is no need to have a religion and a guru. The door of that era has just opened now.

Nut:
Before I went to my current school, I was planning to learn phycology at a university because I wanted to help mentally sick people. There are two ways to help patients with psychology: One is to listen to the issue of the patients and guide them; and another way is to prescribe drugs, for example, prescribe sleeping pills or drugs that make the patient function normally in society. When I checked for the popular university departments, I found the medical, engineering, literature, and commercial arts were the popular ones; however currently psychology is also popular. I think those people who want to be a psychologist actually just want to gain good salary rather than helping people.

Also, our king tries to advocate for a sufficient economy. It is told that in order to understand it, we must first be economically sufficient as individuals. That is to know sufficiency in what we wear, eat and live. However, people who come to learn about economic sufficiency in our educational centers are not in the state of mind to understand how to live as a sufficient state. They are just greedy, and try to learn something for making money and to be self-sufficient. I am not happy about this state.

Isadon:
That means that you have visions ahead of one’s time in you. Now, the era becomes that if you are greedy, you will face a dead-end. We have entered an era that scrapes off all of the unnecessary sheaf and chose only what is necessary from the era of expansion and development. This is not only applied for physical matters but also for the spiritual matters. Therefore, what you are thinking is a matter for the next generation. If you proceed with this thought, you will understand that you are doing something that society requires. That is what Konohana Family is acting on, and also something ahead of psychology.

You will study English very hard, and will come to take “the One-month Truth School” that will be held in February next year. So that, you will be able to master the world beyond medical care and psychology.
See you again!


Exploring This World from “Blood”

 ~ System of the Universe ~

Nut and Mind are high school students and One is a teacher from Mab-ueng School of Sufficiency Economy, an alternative school in Thailand. They have been staying in Konohana Family for three months since May 27th. As a part of the program to expand their worldview, they have had four occasions to deepen their understanding with the theme of “Food” for four times. In the 4th session, they had the opportunity of exploring the “blood” of this world with the theme of “Spiritual Evolution”.

Spiritual Evolution -2

 

Isadon:
Do you say Shinzou 「心臓」(heart) as “organ of heart” in English?

Yoko:
Shinzou「心臓」 (heart) is called “heart” in English.

Isadon:
Heart also means Kokoro 「心」(mind and spirit), doesn’t it?

Yoko:
In English both Kokoro 「心」and Shinzou「心臓」 are described as the same term, heart.

Isadon:
That is the same, isn’t it? How do you describe Shinzou 「心臓」(heart) in Thai?

One:
Kokoro 「心」is described as “Jitwinyan” and Shinzou 「心臓」(organ) is described as “Huajai”. The word, “Huajai” relates to Kokoro「心」.

Isadon:
That means both Kokoro「心」and Shinzou 「心臓」relate to 「心」(heart). In English both words are in common.

Shinzou「心臓」means center of the organ and it sends blood all over the body and the body functions. This is the same structure for the earth, the solar system and the universe. In terms of the solar system, the heart plays the role of the Sun. Therefore, depending on what the sun releases, movement of other planets are found. That is how the solar system operates.

In our body, when your mind gets excited, your heart beats a lot. Therefore, depending on whether your emotional state is excited or calm, an order goes to the heart, and how the blood is sent influences our activities. If your diet is unbalanced, the quality of your blood goes down. Putting a burden on your heart means polluting the person’s life and leads your life in a wrong direction.

Mind:
My teacher One supplementally explained “In order to live healthily, it is necessary to have a heart with goodwill and peace. If you get angry and irritated, your emotional ups and downs are erratic, your health is also like being on a roller coaster, ups and downs become erratic and cannot be healthy.” By hearing that, I feel I was slapped in the face.

Isadon:
It is important to choose good food in order to not to become a burden to your body, and keep your mind calm to judge things correctly. In any case, polluting blood caused by “Kokoro 「心」” will pollute your blood in your life habits. By polluting your blood, it influences other parts of organs and becomes unhealthy, and finally, this will result in death with stoppage of the heart. Therefore, it is important to maintain a beautiful body, a beautiful heart, and a beautiful life which do not pollute blood.

Human blood is a life itself, and that circulates life and distributes it to all equally. If the blood was polluted, pollution will be distributed to everywhere. And if the blood tube which is a passage of blood was crushed, the further parts from that point will be rotten.

Nut:
It is a very easy conclusion!

Isadon:
In fact, in the human society, there is a thing that circulates like blood and connects everything equally. What do you think of “blood of human society”?

Nut:
Isadon gives us a good question!

Isadon:
Ha, ha, ha.

Nut:
In a society, we influence each other by our activities and communication. I think if one group is not happy in the society, their unhappy vibrancy will be passed on to other groups by their words and actions, thus the current unhappy society is created. That caused by our thinking and actions. Therefore, it is necessary to think and act consciously in order to not to spread bad vibrancy to the society.

Isadon:
If we compare that to our body, the blood carries our heart as habit and expresses it. Human society is one creature in this case. So, what would be the thing which plays the role of blood which is equally distributed to the society?

What Nut expressed right now is the pollution of blood. There is a thing that carries pollution and beauty in the human society. That turns into polluted or beautiful things depending on the human mind. Our blood also becomes dirty or beautiful depending on our own heart, doesn’t it?

Three Thai people:
(They thought for a while)We give up!!

Isadon:
OK, I will give you the answer. (Laugh) That is “Money”.

One:
I also thought that is “ego”.

Isadon:
“Ego” is carried by money. Originally, money exists as a social system to distribute to everyone equally; however, there is some money that is kept in one place and not distributed equally. When the blood gets polluted in our body, it is purified through kidney and liver. In the same way, there is dirty money in the world that is used for crimes and wars. People’s heart can purify that kind of money.

Nut:
I understand why people do money laundering.

Isadon:
That is right. Well, I give you the next question. What do you think the “blood of the earth”? What is the most important thing for the circulation of life of the earth?

One:
Air or water?

Mind:
I think that is water.

Nut:
I think that is the natural system.

Isadon:
That is “water”. Water healthily carries the system of nature. That is the same as blood in our body.

Mind:
We, each human being, are the cells of the earth, if there is no water, the earth will die and as a cell, we will die out.

Isadon:
If so, the natural ecological network will not be maintained. When the water is polluted, the pollution will spread to all other lives.

One:
Our king also said the same thing, “Water is life”.

Isadon:
Well, the next question♪ What plays the role of the heart that circulates water which is the blood for the earth?

Nut:
I cannot respond if I do not concentrate to think since Isadon’s questions are becoming more and more difficult! It is more difficult than the national university entrance examination.

Isadon:
Since this is an important question, please think seriously. This is a very important matter.

Nut:
Isadon, please give us a hint!

Isadon:
That is given equally to all lives.

Nut:
Is that time?

Mind:
Is that soil??

Isadon:
Before the soil.

Mind:
It must be microorganisms!

Isadon:
That makes life to circulate and to nurture.
Here is the hint! That falls down from the sky.

Nut:
Is that rain?

Isadon:
The rain is also made of it. That is the most important thing for life.

Mind:
Is that spirit?

Isadon:
If the blood for the earth is water, will the water circulate as blood does? In our body, the system for circulating our blood is the heart. If so, what takes the role to circulate the water which is the blood of the earth? That falls down from the sky equally to everyone. That is the most important for life and also more important than water.

One:
Energy?

Isadon:
Yes, it is energy, but that is the source of energy.

Three Thai people:
We do not know ~!! (Laugh)

Isadon:
Do you give up? (Laugh) If you hear that answer, you will totally “understand!!” ♪ That is the source of all lives. That is the Sun.

Nut&Mind:
Ah~! (Laugh)

One:
However, the sun does not fall down to the earth, does it??

Isadon:
The sun light falls down to the earth and the sun will circulate the water. The sun light itself will not get polluted. Receiving the sun light, circulating blood of water, air and soil will get polluted

Well, I have a next question!! If the blood of the earth is water and its heart is the sun, what would be the “blood of the solar system”?

Mind:
I will think harder …

Isadon:
If you think it is difficult. Just imagine how the solar system is structured.

Mind:
Is that star?

Isadon:
That makes stars cooperate and circulate.

One: :
Is that the movement of each planet?

Isadon:
That is the source that creates them and makes them cooperate. Do you all give up? (Laugh)

Mind:
I give up!

Nut:
Is that the force of magnetic field?

Isadon:
Yes, it is! That is the “magnetic field”.  The solar magnetic field makes cooperation and circulation possible in the solar system. Well, this is the last question. What do you think is the “blood of the universe”?

What consolidates the whole universe is “the Spirit”. In this sense, the Spirit is the massive spirit, and existence of soul. That is the divine.

Today, I talked about blood of human body, blood of human society, blood of the earth, blood of the solar system, and blood of the universe. The blood of human society is money, the blood of the earth is water, the blood of the solar system is magnetic field, and the blood of the universe is the spirit.

As the scale is getting larger and larger, the materialistic staff will vanish and only the spiritual element will remain. As the thing minimizes to our body size, its density increases and becomes a physical matter. As the size becomes smaller and smaller, the physical matter vanishes and only spiritual matter remains. As it goes back to “KA”, the extreme smallest particle of the universe, the being as a phenomenon will vanish.

This means, our body describes the best condition to see the state of our heart (Kokoro). The state of the blood exactly shows our state of spirit (Kokoro). Pollution of blood has a physical element and a spiritual element. Money, the blood of the society also has physical pollution and spiritual pollution. Thus, everything is in the same system.

That is why if one’s spirit (Kokoro) is beautiful, the blood of the person is beautiful, and the person is physically healthy and lives a good life.
