“The 21st Century View of Life and Death” Part 2

We live in the universe. However, people have not recognized that they live in the universe yet. “The 21st century View of Life and Death” Part 2 is going to unlock this universal structure and deepen our understanding about death which surely comes to all lives!

Yin and Yang

We live in the visible world every day. We perceive the figures and forms of everything including our own body with our eyes, and recognize existence. Modern people’s way of thinking, which is represented in the scientific field, considers only this “visible world” as everything. Only when visible phenomena occur, modern people recognize existence. If they feel there is a problem, they try to solve it in a visible method.

However, there is always an invisible existence behind visible matters. Mind, thoughts, souls ――― we cannot see them with our eyes, but such invisible matters become the nature of visible matters which emerge on the surface. “The visible world” appears as form and yang energy, while “the invisible world” is without forms and is yin energy. We call the combination of this “visible world” and “invisible world” as “The World of Existence (Phenomenal World= the world where phenomena occur).” Both our visible body and our invisible soul behind it form “the world of existence.”

The Universe Breathes

The universe is always based on two opposite matters, and this system is called Taiko-Hassei according to the Katakamuna cosmophysics, which was established in East Asia about 13000 years ago. When there is heaven, there is earth. When there is a man, there is a woman. In this manner, there is always the existence of yin and yang which becomes a pair, and makes each other exist. Then, if “the world of existence” is yang, there must be the existence of yin which will become paired with it. It is called “The World of Non-Existence (Potential World = the World of the Source of All Phenomena).” Our modern thinking considers that something “exists” as a premise, so we cannot perceive this “world of non-existence” through such a way of thinking. It is a world of only vibrancy where even a concept of existence or non-existence does not exist.

Originally, this world (the universe) was “the world of non-existence.” However, one day, “existence” was created from “non-existence (nothing).” Time and space were born in the world where nothing existed, and diversity has expanded through this process of creation. And it has become the current phenomenal world. When this expansion reaches its peak finally, this process will contract gradually, and settle toward non-existence (nothing) in the end. That is, it returns to “the world of non-existence.”

The universe infinitely repeats this process from emergence to disappearance. It is a great breath of the universe. The universe slowly breathes in a majestic scale beyond our imagination, and all lives exist in such a world. Also, our own lives are supported under the same universal structure.

All information from the beginning to the end of the universe is sleeping. Great clues are hidden so that humans achieve the universal evolution in the future.

 

A Story of Life of Universe

If we consider only the visible world as everything in this world, we would think birth is the beginning and death is the end. However, in fact, this world is not based on such a simple system. We continue an eternal journey along with the flow of time, transforming our figure from a body, to only a soul, to the universally finest particle, all in a multi-structured world where “the world of existence” is three-dimensionally overlapped with “the world of non-existence” which is its source. It is the story of life, which is woven in the great universal breath.

Let’s Look at the Transition of the Soul.

The soul gains a body, and is born as a human on earth, which is “the visible world.” It cannot recognize what it is, in a state of only a soul. However, once we gain a body and come down on earth, we encounter various phenomena. Our figure, the environmental setting of our birth, and even every single event which we encounter in our daily life occur in an appropriate way to ourselves. The soul begins to know what it is through such phenomena. We live to know ourselves in “the visible world” which accurately reflects our own figure like a mirror, and to evolve ourselves.

When the cycle of our life marks the end eventually, the soul leaves the body. This is death. Components of the body, which were tied by the soul so far, are decomposed at the atomic level, and become ingredients for the next matter in the circulation of the global ecosystem. On the other hand, the soul returns to a different-dimensional universe, which is appropriate to its spiritual level. It is “the invisible world.” Some return to a high-dimensional position in “the invisible world,” and some fall into a low-dimensional position like hell, depending on how much they spiritually grow up while they are alive. After a certain period passes by, we gain a body and come down on earth again. This is how we start the next life in “the visible world.”

The soul follows the flow of time which heads in a one-way direction from past to future, moves forward in a spiral motion between “the visible world” and “the invisible world,” and repeats reincarnation. It is as if food enters the body. We can see the food with our eyes. When we eat it and it enters the body, we cannot see it anymore. However, the food which cannot be seen moves through our visible body as energy. When it is excreted from the body finally, it changes form and becomes visible again. Although it is either visible or invisible, it surely continues to exist, and circulates in “the world of existence.”

Numerous souls (Figure 2) repeat emergence and disappearance, and exist in the universe (Figure 1).

One Trace in a Gigantic Life

As every single life with the body has a life-span, a soul also has a life-span. It is, so to speak, the expiration date of the soul. When the soul, which evolves through many lives and has fully learned, faces the life-span, it becomes the universally finest particle and returns to “the world of non-existence” which is the source of “the world of existence.” The universally finest particle is much finer than an atom or a particle. It is the universally smallest scale which we cannot perceive with modern science, and they becomes ingredients of all existences in this world.

The story of the soul marks the end by becoming the universally smallest unit and returning to “the world of non-existence.” However, as the universe infinitely repeats the process from emergence to disappearance, the end of the story of a soul could be the beginning of the next story. The point, where this end is overlapped with the beginning, is just one point in the flow of time. Also, this point indicates “the world of non-existence,” so we can say that it is eternal. And, the trace of the story of every single soul will be engraved in the gigantic life of the universe.

“Thoughts (pronounced as Omoi in Japanese)” are “Heavy (also pronounce as Omoi).”

Then, how will the soul take the path of evolution? It is only while we are alive with the body in “the visible world” that the soul can evolve. However, if we are trapped with only visible matters, we cannot become aware of the true reason why we came down on earth. For example, you study hard, achieve excellent grades, get a job with a high social position, earn a lot of money, purchase a nice house and a car, gain whatever you want, and think you are satisfied with your life. This is status for many modern people. However, when we look at it through spiritual eyes, just the ego has expanded.

The soul is bound by the weight of the body on earth while we are alive with the body. However, once the soul leaves the body, it loses the mass. If there is no attachment to the earth, it rises straight up and returns to a different-dimensional universe, which is its original place. That is, heaven. However, if we expand our ego and hold many things, the thought of such attachment becomes a weight. Then, even if we leave our body, we cannot rise up. In extreme cases, the soul cannot reincarnate anymore, and its thoughts become heavier and heavier, and such a soul falls into the magma of the earth. Then, it becomes burned, becomes decomposed into the universally finest particles, and resets the existence of itself.

It is You that Judges Yourself.

How much do we polished our minds while we are alive? While we live as humans on earth, souls of various levels gather here. However, once we leave our body, our souls will become classified into a different-dimensional universe which is appropriate to each soul. Therefore, souls of different levels do not interact with each other. On the contrary, the earth is a place rich in such diversity.

When souls finish their learning on earth and return to their appropriate positions, they create a program for the next life based on the result of their previous life. For example, if we made war in our previous life, we might be born in the opponent’s nation in the next life. In fact, our current enemy who we hate and fight against could be our descendant in our previous life.

Our individual life-span is incorporated in the program, but when we are born on earth, such a memory will be completely erased. It is because if we know the answer in advance, we would think beyond the frame of time and lose an opportunity to become aware of our life purpose. Living in the phenomenal world means travelling with time. Our life purpose is to live each moment “now” without being trapped in the past or fixing upon the future, to receive events we encounter every moment, to know what kind of vibrancy we emit, and to change ourselves.

Even if our memory of the past is erased, all the records are engraved in our soul. Our physical DNA disappears with the dismantling of the body. However, all we have done each moment has been engraved in our spiritual DNA, and that accumulation has created the current you. Although you dress up beautifully, gain a high status and a good reputation from the society while you are alive, once you die and get out of the body, the reality of your soul will be revealed. It is you that judge yourself then, because you have stayed with your own life and confirmed everything. That is why, you cannot fake yourself. If pollution is engraved in your soul, the program of your next life will reflect such pollution and begin.

Flowers of a Big Tree which Follows the Universal Consensus.

When we are born on earth, souls do not create a program alone. We always discuss with this world.

In the flow of a long long time, numerous souls have come down on earth, played an appropriate roles to each era, and departed the earth. They repeat reincarnation and engrave their history. At the same time, they are asked to express the era from the side of the world. Every single soul is given an original role. They continue to weave the universal story which has continued from a long time ago, as a part of a gigantic life of the era.

When we trace the flow of time, we reach the beginning (= end) of the universe. On the contrary, when we move forward, we reach the end (= beginning) of the universe. All information from the beginning to the end of the universe is sleeping in our spiritual DNA.

In order to awaken it, we do not have to think. When we let go of the attachment of “ourselves” which is ego, the awareness will naturally come out. It is because we are originally a part of the universe. As the information of the entire body is input in each one of our cells in the body, all information of the universe is engraved in our soul. When we engrave our history in our soul, it is also engraved in the universe. Evolving our soul means evolving the universe itself.

When our soul evolves, beautiful flowers of life will bloom there. It is not just one flower. It is flowers of a big tree of a gigantic life with numerous buds. When you feel that you are one of them, fully bloom your original flower, and create a network with other flowers, it will become a gigantic beautiful tree in full bloom, which is in accordance with the universal consensus.

 

When you die,
head straight toward the light.

Currently, a lot of issues are occurring on earth. The cause is the pollution of the human mind. Humans have brought various issues to the earth as a result of forgetting to purify their souls through reincarnation and accumulating spiritual pollution. Therefore, this time, we will tell you the attitude when you die.

The Karma of the Earth

When your body faces death, your soul rises up. Rising up means rising to the heavens. When your soul leaves the body after death, it loses the mass of the body and naturally rises to the heavens. When this happens, a polluted soul holds a lot of attachment which becomes a weight, and cannot rise up. It ends up drifting around the earth like mist.

Still, it gradually goes upwards because it does not have a body. However, the souls with a lot of attachment continue to remain in the material world even if they rise up, and they end up drifting in the outside of the atmosphere without returning to the heavens. The earth is a physically beautiful blue planet with white clouds floating; however, when we spiritually look at the current earth, it has become grey, covered with souls which cannot leave the three-dimensional world even though they lost their physical body. The vibrancy of the caught-up souls comes down on earth, which delays human awakening on the current earth.

Then, what should we do when we face death? When a soul faces death and gets out of the physical body, it looks down at that body from slightly above. If there is some attachment to its own life, it will keep watching the body. That is, it looks down. Or, if it holds onto things or schedules such as “I want this,” and “I want to do that,” it will end up looking down at the ground by paying attention to such matters. The present era is the time when people expand their desires based on ego, and polluting their souls is supposed to be attractive.

However, when you have realized that you have died, first of all, please look at the above by all means. Then, you will surely see light. That is the direction which you should head to after you have faced death. Please do not think of anything that you leave behind you. Just go straight toward the light. If you do so, you will surely rise up. There is no need to hold a funeral or sutra recited by a Buddhist monk. What you should do is just release your attachment, and head straight towards the light. You can return to your original home, only by doing so.

This is very important for not polluting the earth spiritually. Currently, we humans not only pollute the earth in a visible way, but also in an invisible form. That becomes the karma of the earth. Therefore, please always keep this in your mind because death surely comes to anyone of us, and it could be tomorrow.

Ray of Light in Darkness

It is not only human souls that cover the surroundings of the earth. Animal souls, whose lives are taken away by humans, become spiritual grey mist and also cover the earth. A tremendous number of animals are killed for meat which is eaten by humans every day. Their fear, in the moment when they are killed, is beyond our imagination. Animals scream, emit the vibrancy of fear, and their lives are taken away. We eat the meat with such vibrancy in our daily life.

When lions eat zebras in the natural world, it is the circulation of life. The zebra’s life is taken over to the lion, and the zebra’s soul rises up without any regret. However, the souls of animals which are killed for humans to satisfy their desires, cannot rise up. They cover the earth and resonate the vibrancy of fear. Such vibrancy has brought a great impact to the spiritual pollution of the earth. Therefore, the modern era has become a very difficult time for humans to become awakened. That is why, it is important for us to try not to generate such wandering souls in our daily life. As a result of such efforts, when we face death in the future, we can depart gracefully without being trapped on the earth.

Spiritually, it is an era of darkness on the current earth. People have not woken up yet. However, in such a situation, if there is a handful of people who begin to wake up, they will become a ray of light in the darkness. Even a slight light can be seen very well in darkness. It will surely become a signpost for people who are far away.

Awakened people begin to purify this world with their enlightenment. When such movement expands and the earth is wrapped with a beautiful harmony, the world will become beautiful instantly, and the earth will restore its original luster.

Our life exists to purify our souls ――― Then, what is “beautiful”? The 21st century View of Life and Death Part 3, which will be published during the autumn equinox in 2018, will unlock what the true beauty of life is!


The Konohana Family English Newsletter Vol.6

“The 21st Century View of Life and Death” Part 1

This is about “the 21st century View of Life and Death.” However, people experience life and death even if it is not in the 21st century. Our life does not end when we are born, live and die. We repeat being born, living and dying over an eternal period of time.
However, many modern people fear death. According to a survey, more than a half of Japanese people “fear” death. Also, another survey confirmed that more than 90% of respondents in their 20’s-70’s consider death as “sadness,” and more than 60% feel anxious about it somehow.
No matter how much we fear and feel sad about death, it surely comes to us because tomorrow comes. When we think, “I do not want to die” and live today, death surely gets closer to us every day in which we live.

Time is life

No matter how much we try to stop the flow of time, it is impossible because time is life. Time never stops and continues to change, transfigures and circulates, so it is the base of the universe. We are a part of the life of the times, and continue to travel on the vehicle of time in the universe.

We cannot encounter an existence which does not get on this vehicle of time in this world. Everything has a unique cycle, each cycle marked by time, which are interlocked with each other and compose a great chain of life.

When one cycle in that great life marks an end, we call it “death.” Every living being surely will face death. However, instead people fear death, avoid it, consider death vaguely, and live blindly. When death is ambiguous, the meaning of life is also unclear. All issues which we encounter are generated from the fact that we are alive. While we make the meaning of life vague, we continue to hold the same problems.

Why are humans born, and why do they live and die?
The view of life and death is a fundamental theme of humanity. Each one of us lives according to a cycle and reason for our existence. Only when we understand the great system of life, will we be able to live a truly fulfilling one, and depart beyond death with joy.

 

“The 21st Century View of Life and Death” is delivered in a series.
The system of life in this world will be unlocked in Part 1!

The Body Continues to Change through Circulation, however the Soul Ties it together.

Everything exists based on yin and yang in the universe. If our body is considered as visible yang, invisible yin exists behind it, which is the soul.

As we say “yin and yang,” yin exists first in the original system of this world, and then yang is generated based on it. For our life, the soul exists first, and attracts various substances in the universe by connection. This is how our body is formed. The state in which the soul and body become a pair is when we are considered “alive.” The soul’s original connection weaves everything from the shape, personality, to what kind of family we have, and where we are born. The connection between each soul and body has an original cycle, which is longevity.

When the lifetime ends, the soul leaves the body. Then, components of the body which are tied by the soul are released from the connection, and begin their journey to return to the three-dimensional ecosystem. They become ingredients for the formation of future life. On the other hand, the soul returns to anther dimensional universe which is appropriate for each soul.

The different dimensional universe which is appropriate for each soul exists widely from hellish to high-dimensional universes with multi-dimensional structures. With so many probabilities of dimensional universes, it is the world of living beings on earth where varying degrees of souls gather into existence as one time and space. That is, living on earth is like a tour of experiences in an ecosystem where we can encounter diverse existences all at the same time. Souls live a life which are appropriate to the cycle of each level of awareness, face a death which is appropriate to the life, return to the universe, after which they come back to earth with another appropriate connection, and mark a new cycle.

Relay of Life

Nothing increases or decreases in the universe. The universe just changes the form and circulates. Therefore, it is the universal reality that everything continues to change and transform. In such a great universal circulation, our body also changes and circulates in the ecosystem.

The five elements which compose the global ecosystem are earth, water, fire, wind and air. Humans circulate with the five elements and live. We eat crops which are nurtured by the earth and drink water. Our excrement becomes the source to nurture the next life, which takes in the sunlight, transforms it into energy, emits it, receives wind, and breathes in and out. Carbon dioxide which was emitted becomes food for plants to grow. It is a relay of life in which life always flows from others to ourselves, takes in necessary things, changes form and become taken over by others again. The flow is not one, but many patterns overlap and link with each other. We are always given a fresh life from various existences in the circulation of the natural ecosystem, we are supported, and also create a part of it. On the contrary, unless we are in this circulation, our life cannot exist. It is the “altruistic” system in which our existences support others to maintain this circulation.

It is the soul which ties the various functions of the body that incessantly continue to change and transform, and maintain as one life form. Humans have considered this life form, which has never been in the same state even for a moment, as the “self.” Furthermore, they began to become trapped in the recognition of the self. This is the ego.

Modern People who are Trapped in the Ego and have Forgotten the Great System of this World

There is a significant difference between humans and animals; humans can become aware of the ego. Animals also have an ego, but it is instinctive and not what they are trapped in. However, the human ego stands at the side of themselves, which they become attached to.

The universe in which we live always continues to change and transform, which is its reality. But, humans, who have developed an ego, came to fix themselves and maintain their same state, rather than change according to the universal law. When a human (人) enters a frame (□), it becomes the Chinese character for “constraint (囚).” In this manner, people have confined themselves in the frame of the ego. Moreover, they have forgotten that this world is a chain of life in which everything supports each other, and they are a part of it.

This world is a network of life in which independent individuals are connected by an altruistic system. Every single human soul has an original individuality. When they are connected with each other and become one collectivity, they create an abundant world full of diversity. However, when we look at each individuality, it is also “one-sided.”

When a one-sided person has forgotten to collaborate with others and lives for self-satisfaction, the world will develop problems which are appropriate to its imbalance, and it will reach a dead end. This world makes humans experience their own imbalance through a deadlock, and learn the importance of connecting with each other. However, the more humans put their consciousness toward “themselves,” the stronger the human ego becomes, for which they have lost sight of this system. They are trapped in only visible values, have forgotten that the whole is the collectivity of individuals, and have sought their own happiness. As a result, individualities, which are supposed to complement each other and enrich the world due to diversity, came to make conflicts due to this diversity and generate disharmony in the world. Then, they have brought various issues both to the world and humans.

The Eternal Self Exists Deep Inside of You

We show our will by crying as soon as we are born, and seek eating and sleeping. It is an instinctive action to survive, but it is not our life purpose.

This world is a so-called fabric of life. Numerous lives weave the circulation of life under the five natural elements of earth, water, fire, wind and air, which are expressions of the expansion of the natural ecosystem (the phenomenal world). On the other hand, there is the circulation for the home of souls (the potential world), which is the source of all lives. The original energy as the source of life which comes from there always continues to give a fresh life force to us.

 

Yin exists first in this world, and yang is generated based on it. Yin is the thread in the fabric of life, and yang is the cloth. However, modern people are trapped in only visible matters, and have forgotten the existence of this thread. The world has lost sight of the thread and has become confused to the origination of the visible world. As a spinning top which loses its axis, the world has continued to be in a wavering and unstable state. However, no matter how much we do not recognize that existence, we are constantly given life in the circulation of the thread and cloth. Our true purpose of being born in this world is to gain the body, live in the phenomenal world, and polish our souls which are behind the visible body through phenomena. This plays the role of being the fundamental axis of how we live.

Unless we incessantly breathe, eat and excrete, we cannot survive. We can say that living is a state in which we are bound by the body, and also bound by water, soil and air. However, originally, souls are infinite existences.

The eternal self exists behind the figure which you think is “yourself.” When we remove the constraint of the self, the unknown world which we have never encountered will expand. Infinite possibilities are hidden within humans.

A long time ago, there was only light in this world. If we are in only light, we cannot see it. God, who was the perfect light itself, was bored. “I cannot know myself because I am perfect.”

Then, God divided its perfect body. God created darkness to understand what light is, and threw it to the farthest point from himself. God created a very long path to return to the original light.

Admission into a School of the Earth

Each one of numerous souls which floats in the universe is very unique. Because it was divided from the perfect oneness, every single soul is imperfect, one-sided, and has an original individuality. However, the souls cannot see their own figures as they are. “How can I understand myself?” Then, the planet Earth was created by the universal consensus. The souls came down on earth together, gained perfect forms and personalities which were appropriate to their individualities, and began a tour of experiencing the global ecosystem.

Many things occur on earth every day. The souls, which have gained a body had various experiences throughout life, and came to know who they were through these experiences. What kind of vibrancy we emit changes the events we encounter. “I see. I am such an existence.”

The flow of time is majestic, and changes are very slow in the universe. However, phenomena occur one after another in the system of repeating changes, transformation and transfiguration here on earth. In such a situation, the paths of souls are diverse. Some learn from the events they encounter one after another, and evolve rapidly. Some are trapped by visible matters, forget the purpose of coming to earth, and repeat the same thing many times. It is like they entered the school of the earth.

When the expiration date for learning finally comes, souls face graduation in the form of “death.” They return to a different dimensional universe which is appropriate to their level of awareness.

Earth is the only place where souls can know who they are and evolve. After they end their learning, they return to the universe with a report card from the earth school. Then, they come to the earth again to learn, thinking “Alright, I will learn more this time!” after a while.

In order to Make the Whole Universe Beautiful

Stars in the universe are interestingly watching the process for the evolution of souls on earth. When the souls, which have gained a body through coming to earth, enhance themselves and become aware of the truth, stars react to it, and the center of the galaxy billows and becomes astir. Even if it is only one soul, if it is excellent, it has such an influence on the universe.

Currently, the souls, which came down on earth as humans, live with a very narrow worldview. They are trapped in the ego and have lost sight of their life purpose. It seems as if they are distracting themselves out of their fear of death, while trying hard to gratify their own desires. As a result, problems have overflowed in the world.

However, the era surely moves toward the direction of light. Since God put darkness in the farthest point from himself, we have experienced what darkness is, have repeated life and death so many times, and have taken a path to return to the original world of light.

Now that the era has faced the 21st century, we have entered a new cycle from the year 2000 to the year 3000. This means that humans living on earth have faced the era when they become aware of the true meaning of life. It is different from the conventional era when one sacred person appeared and preached teachings, and people who sought help swarmed to get them. When each one of us awakens to what is sleeping inside of ourselves, we will become precious and live. Such an era has finally arrived.

We have faced the era when we evolve from the existence of one who is trapped with the ego and brings confusion to the world, to one who expresses the true value of humans on earth and brings the right order to this world for all living beings. When each one of the souls becomes beautiful, the earth and the universe will become beautiful.

In order to do so, we should remove the constraint of the “ourselves.”

The structure of this world which consists of “the world of existence” and “the world of non-existence” will be unlocked in Part 2 of the View of Life and Death.

To The People Who live The New Era towards Year 3000

The Mayan New Year Ceremony on July 26th, 2014

July 26th is the Mayan New Year. Three years ago, on July 26th, 2014, Venerable Grandmother Na-kin who is the spiritual leader of the Mayan solar tradition in Mexico visited the Konohana Family and held the ceremony to celebrate the Mayan New year at our sacred land – Miyanoshita Place by overlooking the Mt. Fuji. Since then on this particular day, the Konohana Family has held the ceremony every year to enfold the earth with a wave of prayer. In the early morning of July 26th, 2017, the Konohana Family members get together at the Miyanoshita Place, and after offered a song and a dance of Katakamuna, Isadon gave the following speech.

 

To The People Who live The New Era towards Year 3000

~ What We Encounter in Our Life Is An Evidence of Our Life ~

Right now, by attending this ceremony under the cloudy sky with misty rain, an image came in my mind that is the Earth floating in the universe space.

It rains on the ground, but it does not rain on the earth itself because the earth is located in the universe space. Here, at this moment, it is raining misty rain as if it is in consideration of the universe. This is the water of life that is the proof for us to live on the earth. If you think of that as an unpleasant thing, an unpleasant world will be developed on the earth. But, if you think the rain gives moisture to your life and can then receive it as “I am humbly receiving it”, you are given a very precious thing. Because with this blessing of water, we can weave and live our life.

It is July 26th today, the Mayan New Year. The reason we celebrate the Mayan New Year with this kind of ceremony is because we have lived our life to encounter this kind of thing. That is also a proof of our life.

We, human beings encounter various events on this earth as long as we are alive. Whatever you encounter in your life is all evidence of how you have lived your life, and you encounter it as a result of your life up to that point. Currently, there is so much stagnation that cannot be solved at the global level, and though world leaders have been exploring ways to solve them; the stagnation will not be solved with that movement. Because whatever the phenomena, it was given to them as a result of how they have lived their life up to that point. Therefore, it is necessary to change their (and our) attitude to life in order to change the phenomena. As a result of encountering the phenomena, if they realize what kind of their attitude of life brought that result and change it, naturally and automatically, the phenomena will lose its significance of being and vanish. When they do not change their attitude to life without learning anything, but keep exploring phenomena, it is called “Desire”.

This natural world and also the law of the universe consists of a system of retribution. There is a cause, and because of this there is a result. There, a suitable phenomenon promises to occur. There is nothing more thankful than this because a suitable phenomenon will emerge for that person. And now, why you are gathering here together is that you have lived the deserved life. I wonder how much consciousness you have to gather here together on this occasion. That current consciousness will appear as a form in every one of your future lives, and at the same time, this creates a society. That is a matter of course.

It is time for human beings to need to know about this. The era of looking at the surface of unpleasant occurrences, and then trying to solve them, has ended. How you will live from now on, depends on how you think of your own life and what you want in that life. This means your life is in your hands. Why we have not had it in our hands is because we ignored the system of life which we have been given from the world , and have instead lived selfishly by following our desires.

We gather here together today because as a people who understand the system, we have the awareness to be able to embody this in our life as a phenomenon. There is no profit-and-loss arithmetic or a desire to have a better life for ourselves. Living only as the era requires while the universe is also formed. By living so, at this major turning point, we can clearly show how people can live in the future era. You all stand here as people who are aware of it.

Now, rain comes down. On this ceremony day, is it a blessing of the universe if weather is sunny and dry? That is a human centric thought and desire. If the weather is always sunny, we cannot live. From the universe, this is the effect of the circulation of life on earth. We need to understand such a system as an evidence of why we live, and also to understand all happy and unhappy matters are part of the system of life. The people who understand that do not live their life for their convenience. This is how to live beautifully: by cutting off one’s desires, and instead living based on the law of the universe.

Every year is a special year and every day is a special day. Every moment, we keep moving forward to an unknown place. In that flow, July 26th, 2017 is the special day. To me, I feel “The time has come”. Because small oak seedlings were planted at the four corners of this ceremony site. These were planted just recently, but I was not particularly paying attention. The seeds were sown, spring came, rainy season came, and I felt sorry for these small trees which had grown a certain size to have to stay in their small pots during the summer. Then I wondered where to plant them, and inspiration came to me to plant them at the four corners of the Miyanoshita place. The significance of this ceremony place was then completed by planting them here.

Seedling of the Himalayan Oak

This oak I named the Himalayan Oak. When I was invited by the Haltora village of Himalaya to visit there three years ago, I took a walk in the village with an eye out for something that I can take home as a memory. There was an oak tree. This oak had some green immature fruits and said to me, “take me along”, so I picked some of them and brought them back with me. After I saw the seeds, only four of them have grown, and these four seedlings were planted at the corners of this ceremony place.

Even though there is no physical evidence, Himalaya is my spiritual birth place. When I came down to the earth about 1000 years ago as my first incarnation, Himalaya was the first land I lived. Then, my Indian friend invited me three years ago to visit Himalaya, I spoke to the mountains of Himalaya and declared, “I am home now”. That was the journey to confirm my roots. As a proof, I am currently at the foot of Mt. Fuji, Japan. Mt. Fuji is the spiritually highest mountain on earth, which is located at the center of a high vibrancy generator of earth, by two tectonic plates that are striking and rubbing against each other. That is the highest energy place, where natural disasters such as earthquakes and eruptions occur, which means rebirth of life is vigorous. This shows the reality of the universe and means that living is a repetition of destruction and rebirth.

Life always repeats change, transformation, and metamorphosis, circulating around, then moves forward to an unknown future. As we live 10 years, 20 years, 30 years, and 40 years, we have never stood at the same position twice. We are born into this world as a baby and since then, we have been living the ‘same’ life. Somehow, we forgot that we cannot exist in the same place more than once, because we are Life. Not only human beings, but the earth and also the entire universe takes that journey. We make an interwoven story of life together with the earth, the sun and the galaxy.

Well, do the current human beings on earth have such a consciousness in their daily life? Probably not. That is why people’s consciousness is at the human consciousness level, and people are trapped with their ego, living with emotion and desire.

Depending on the person’s consciousness level, they encounter the most suitable phenomena among all other possibilities. This is the system of the universe. Why current human society becomes in such a state is that our daily consciousness is at that state, and the appropriate phenomenon occurs for that consciousness. It may sound as if you are punished, but once you know the truth of this system, the thought “How thankful it is!” will gush out from you. That means, a human life comes into being in synopsis with one’s consciousness and likes. All the phenomena tells us about this.

Three years ago, this oak came from Himalaya which is the birthplace of my spirit. If Mt. Fuji is the mountain where the divine wisdom comes down, then that teaching penetrates through Mt. Fuji, enters the earth, and going through magma, it gushes out again to the surface of the ground that is the Himalaya, the mountain where the wisdom comes out of the earth. Before this trip to the Himalaya, we went to offer the dance of the Fuji Sengen Konohana Festival to Kumano, which is called Takamagahara (the heaven of the world) in order to greet the mountain where the wisdom comes out from the earth, in Japan. On the previous day, the weather forecast mentioned that the strong typhoon with 930hPa will hit the area, but when we went there, we hardly even encountered any rainstorm. In the early morning, when we arrived at the Tamaki Shrine at Mt. Tamaki, the inner shrine of Kumano’s three major shrines, the area had been surrounded by very clear air.
After successfully offering the dance, we wandered around and I encountered the lignitized Japanese cedar. It told me, “Take this seed with you”. I took and sowed it. That is this tree planted in the center of this ceremony place.

When I planted this oak, I told Hirocchi, a priest of the Konohana Family, “When you will hold a ceremony 200 years later, it will have grown into a beautiful Kumano cedar, please expect that.” (laugh) It is still a seedling, but the life is surely passed on from the lignitized Japanese cedar of Kumano, Takamagahara, which is heaven on the earth, and has settled here.

Kumano is the home ground of the Kuninotokotachi, the divine of the earth. From this location, Mt. Fuji is on the north-east (Ushitora) direction. Japan is on the Ushitora direction from India, termed the ‘belly button of the earth’. On the terrain of Japan, there is Mt. Fuji. The teaching of the divine went through Mt. Fuji, into the earth through the magma, gushed out of the ground in the Himalayas, gliding though the Ganges river southward, reaching Pondicherry at the southern edge of India, and from the Indian ocean the teaching spread out to the rest of the world. That is a 6500-year history. The current civilization has spread throughout the earth in this way. The time of reset of this civilization arrived during the winter solstice of the Milky Way galaxy, on December 21st, 2012.

Now, the time has come for us to live the next era of this civilization. “We” means all human beings. Fortunately, with the discovery of the Chibanian, it has been proven that the earth magnetic field can (and has) be reversed. I talked about the reverse of the magnetic field for years, without any evidence, but now the time has come where it has been proved. Reversing the magnetic field means values of things will also be reversed.

Life has not been respected in the most current era: People searched for materialistic wealth by destroying life. The coming era is about working along with the preciousness of life, connecting with it and expressing harmony. Our source of life is the Sun. The Earth embodies and expresses that. The next cycle is about not breaking with life through one’s own ego, trying to fill one’s desire to be rich: it is instead about following the law of the universe, collaborating, harmonizing, and living with abundant love. The era has begun. Before now, we could not have express such a simple thing because we loved ourselves based on our ego.

Still, people in the world are searching for wealth in the world of desire, competition, anger and conflict. But, it is impossible to be wealthy by knocking against each other’s energy and making both ourselves and the other worn out. The earth’s ecosystem becomes rich by connecting with each other. That is infinite. Life transforms its form and passes a baton from one form to the next: but there is no destruction. Thus, life creates its network and makes the world abundant. That is exactly the relationship among the Sun, the Earth and other planets. We, human beings also live in this relationship.

You came to the Konohana Family with a special connection. Therefore, you gather together with a special commitment, but do you not indulge in your everyday work? If that is so, we cannot embody true abundance. With this special connection, we gather here together consciously living every day in the flow of what we have committed ourselves to; the commitment all through our life as a base, and live with whatever phenomenon we are given. If one does this, infinite sustainable energy, woven by planets and termed free energy, will appear in one’s life. Human beings do not really know that abundance. When people share everything with others, expressing that we are one with nature and that life is one, enormous abundance which we cannot imagine now will appear on the earth. We will embody that on this land, and as a pioneer of this coming new era we must become an example of that.

In 2014, we also celebrated the Mayan New Year 10OC at the Miyanoshita Place, but with the Venerable Grandmother Na-kin who is the highest priestess of the Mayan Solar tradition. The Mayan ceremony is held today at Tonina Pyramid in Mexico. It is 6:40 am here. On this early morning of July 26th, 2017, it is the beginning of this ceremony to enfold the earth with a wave of prayer. This is the beginning of the earth-scale ceremony with the people who always have consciousness and awareness of the earth like this and live in the universe as an earth being.

Let’s go back to the topic at the beginning.

Depending on what kind of consciousness we have in our daily life, we weave connections for our future phenomena. Therefore, you should not have complaints about what you encounter. Because what you encounter faithfully reflects and embodies your own consciousness. If you complain, that means you complain to others, or the universe, without looking at yourself. If you accept what you encounter bravely and correct your own attitude, the life of each one of us will become abundant and superb. We, Konohana members, have been aware of it and have lived as a model on how to live this way.

I have talked about a lot of things that may be difficult to understand for many people. There is Mt. Fuji in the direction of Ushitora (north-east): the oak tree of the mountain where the wisdom comes out from the earth, and the lignitized Japanese cedar of Takamagahara, the heaven on the earth, have rooted on this land. What I speak of does not have foundation. I have been talking about the reverse of the magnetic field on the earth, and what I meant was the value and life of people who live on the earth will change. There is no logic, but what came down and sprung from me was the truth.

The evil thoughts based on profit-and-loss arithmetic is a person’s egotism and a cling to the material world. However, originally, we are the life that is embodied through the law of the universe. If our heart is beautiful, naturally the wisdom of the universe comes down to us. If our heart is beautiful, infinite wisdom will spring out from us from the beginning to the future of life. That is why we need to improve ourselves. How we can improve ourselves is by always observing what we think and how we live right now, and always consciously live in a thought-pattern and consciousness we can be proud of. In this way, you achieve your everyday goal and role.

If you so do, the universe appears in way of living. The earth’s ecosystem, the infinite chain of life appears in your way of living. This will bring to us a life filled with love, excellence, and abundance.

As I stand here, having talked for some time, the misty rain has stopped. This mist represents the vibrancy of source which creates our life. Please be aware that your thoughts will truly become phenomenon during this opportunity. That is also horrifying because if you have foolish thoughts, that will also become a phenomenon. That is why you need to keep watching yourself. What you should keep watching is your own mind.

Early this morning of July 26th, 2017, it is not only the Mayan New Year. I asserted this message to the people who are living in harmony with the earth’s new era towards the year 3000, with all of you in the form of this ceremony happening at the daybreak of earth’s consciousness.

The universe indicates the infinite world is attainable as a life to us. We would like to express this faithfully without polluting it.

A Revolution of Consciousness Begins with Food

The earth which nurtures crops full of life energy
In the unboundedly vast universe, the earth where we live is a tiny existence like a piece of dust. The network of various lives, called “the ecosystem” exists on earth, which is full of blessings of the divine and earth. Food which is a blessing from the divine and earth are gifts for all living beings. It is a miracle in the universe.

Everything is made of vibrancy
Everything from life to substance are made of “vibrancy” in this world. “Vibrancy” is the source of life energy and the home for all lives. In fact, we take in “vibrancy” through food. The vibrancy of food affects not only the body, but also the mind. We weave our lives in such a chain of vibrancy which everything radiates. Do you know there are foods with vibrancy that destroy lives and the beautiful vibrancy to nurture them?

Let’s look at the current situation with food in the modern era
We eat food which is essential for our lives every day. “Food” is life. “Eating” is a relay of life where eating life and the eaten life become one. It is a joy to become linked and melt into each other and nurture a new life.

However, the current situation with food in the modern era is that many people continue to eat unhealthy food mass-produced for business, do not respect life and weaken their own life energy. The typical example is a slaughterhouse for cows, pigs and chickens. Meat is produced and processed like industrial products, not as “life.” When we eat meat, their vibrancy of fear and grudge through suffering and dying enters our body and pollutes our spirit. This is the most awful matter in terms of eating. Moreover, now that the vibrancy covers the whole earth, the earth has become a spiritually unhealthy planet.

When we change our diet, our consciousness will change
Then, the world will change

Originally, “eating” is sensing the life energy of food (vibrancy) and receiving only what the body needs in order to connect with the lives of this world. An ability to sense what is necessary and unnecessary for itself is equipped in life as life intuition.
A long time ago, humans had a life intuition and lived by avoiding danger in the great nature and food which threatened life. They caught the voice of food, saying “Please eat me. Thank you,” appreciated blessings from nature, and connected their lives to the next generation. However, people have forgotten to communicate with nature along with the flow of the era, have been controlled by desires, and have a blunted life intuition. If life is vibrancy and our life intuition functions orderly, even if the amount of agricultural chemical left in the field is under the standard, we would sense the distorted vibrancy in the food used with agricultural chemical, and would not choose it. However, the modern people are used to unhealthy food which is full of additives. As a result, their senses are so dull and out of order that they even feel that such food tastes delicious.
Now that the current world is full of materials and information, and the era has reached the peak of confusion, in order to revive the original human ability, it is essential for us to purify our mind. If our mind becomes pure, our intuition will become sharp, and the nature of things will come into sight without us thinking. When we become aware of the connection of lives and the original vibrancy, and begin to live with it, a symphony of various lives resound on earth.

What kind of action should we take in order to bring a healthy world on this miraculous planet?


Recommendation for a peaceful and abundant “Brown Rice & Grain Vegetarian Meal”

Abundance to share the food with everyone
Joy to experience genuine food

The earth provides appropriate food to all living beings on earth so that every existence can live healthy. There are various kinds of grains in the world, but rice’s yield per field is the highest out of all grains. Also, when we eat it as brown rice, it is the most balanced food out of all grains. Healthy grains and vegetables, which are nurtured with five natural elements (earth, water, fire, wind and air) and the harmonious spirit, are full of life energy and rich in medical properties. As medicine to cure diseases and food have the same source, food is medicine. There is a world where the more crops people grow, the better the environment becomes, and the more food we eat, the healthier we become.
There are seven important reasons why we should practice a vegetarian diet which does not include meat or fish.

Our Body and Mind, Eels and the Earth are All Happy!
Please Enjoy the Eel-like “Mt. Fuji Himatsubushi”!

ひまどん(修正)

Our café & shop “Lotus Land” had the grand opening on May 5th. Its concept is “peaceful food which are gentle, not only to our body and mind, but also plants and animals in nature and the earth.” Those who have preferred to eat meat before visited and became surprised, saying “What a delicious meal only with vegetables!” People who do not know that this place offers only vegetarian meals happened to come here and became impressed, saying “This deep-fried food is really good! This chicken-like staff is made of devil’s tongue, so it is healthy, too!”
Lotus Land’s specialty is “Mt. Fuji Mimatsubushi”! We took inspiration from the “Hitsumabushi” which is the famous eel dish in Nagoya. “Hitsumabushi” is a Japanese cuisine with grilled eel on rice. Then, “Mt. Fuji Himatsubushi” is a special vegetarian dish which is made of tofu, Japanese yam, devil’s tongue, and burdock as a replacement of Japanese eel which is currently listed as an endangered species. The name of “Hima (meaning a spare time in Japanese) tsubushi” was generated through our thoughts to invite people from the busy world to spend their spare time here.

Let’s protect Japanese eel as an endangered species!
Do you know that the extinction in the modern era is much more rapid and massive than the mass extinction in the past? More than 100 species continue to become extinct every day due to the destruction of the ecosystem. Currently, it is said that about 24,000 species on earth are on the verge of extinction. Moreover, the current extinction is tens of thousands faster than that of the past one. Such a crisis has been progressing around our daily life. Japanese eel is just one example. Due to overfishing and deterioration of the habitant, it is considered to have a high possibility that it will become extinct in the wild in the near future.

To make this world “Lotus Land”
Why are lotus flowers which bloom from mud so beautiful and impressive? It seems like the lotus flowers are telling us that if each one of us goes through muddy and chaotic experiences and learns from them, the true beauty we originally have will bloom. “Lotus Land” also indicates utopia where colorful flowers bloom.

At the beginning of the 21st century, we humans have established society as an outstanding existence out of all living beings on earth. However, the existence has sacrificed many lives and the environment. Therefore, it is casting a dark shadow on the future of humanity. The chaotic mud seems to represent the exact figure of modern human society.

The earth is a miraculous planet in a vast universe. Being a life on earth, being a human who has the highest ability out of all lives, and being yourself is the miracle of all miracles. When humans who are given precious individualities become aware of their originality, the human potential will expand infinitely. The network of awakened humans will expand as the leader of all living beings on earth. A world of diverse lives with unique individualities will resonate with each other in harmony as an expression of the beautiful vibrancy on earth. In fact, infinite possibilities are hidden in that chaotic mud at the same time.

This awakening begins with food which we receive as the source of our life every day. Hope you will spread the vibrancy of harmony and peace all over the world.


“A Thousand Paper Cranes” by Kyoko Kitao from the Konohana Family

 

Now, a thousand paper cranes are hung on the wall in my room. In Japan, a thousand paper cranes are a symbol of longevity, so they are given to people who suffer from serious diseases. The cranes in my room are what everyone, specifically the children, in the Konohana Family had made when I was hospitalized. I found out that I had cervical cancer about two years ago. Then, I lost a large amount of blood on October 26th in 2016, so I became hospitalized right after that.

Kano-chan, a junior high school girl asked everyone to make them together. Then, all of the members from nursery school children to elderly people made more than a thousand paper cranes in only two days. When the cranes were hung from the ceiling of my hospital room, they were like a pillar of rainbow light.

Thousand Crains

On the day when Kano-chan brought them to me, I was supposed to have an exam to receive radiation therapy. However, I lost a large amount of blood a few days before and after that I had a fever of 38 to 39 degrees Celsius. But, after she came and gave me the thousand paper cranes, my temperature went down suddenly, and I was able to complete the exam successfully. I thought it was impossible for me to do so on that day, so it was a mysterious experience.

The Konohana Family is a big family beyond kinship, where 84 people live together as one family. I gave birth to two children, and in a reached situation like this, my husband took care of me throughout the 24 hours in the hospital. If I lived a traditional life, I might have had many worries such as childcare and housework, but I do not have to worry about anything since I live in such a big family. Not only during my hospitalization, but also daily, biological parents do not have to take care of their own children in the Konohana Family. Before I was hospitalized, I belonged to the vegetable production team and took care of seedlings. And the childcare team takes care of the children, including mine.

Everyone is a mother, a father, a grandmother, and a grandfather for the Konohana children. All of the children are my children, and it is a big family where all of the children are just like siblings. I did not give birth to Kano-chan, but she cares about me in this manner.

When I was hospitalized and a doctor said, “Please call your family,” so many people gathered into my hospital room that they could barely fit in. When the nurses came to my room to check my temperature, they became overwhelmed by the number of family members. When I almost passed out, I was surrounded by so many people, my pain was gone, and I felt better gradually. When I was in critical condition, my family (meaning the Konohana members) was called. However, we laughed a lot in my hospital room in the end, and said good-bye. I even said to them, “See you again, everyone.”

I am really happy to have met such a wonderful family. Furthermore, it is a family beyond kinship. They are people who question the current society and gather to seek a new way of life for the next era. They are a family with “spiritual connections” who are trying to create a utopia together. They are a very important family for me.

I believe that everyone’s thoughts brought me back to this world. When I was sleeping in the hospital, I had many dreams. In one of them, a pillar of light came down from the divine onto my stomach exactly where my cancer existed. It is just like the thousand paper cranes that everyone had made for me.

The power of “thoughts” can curse and kill people like magic, or save them. If everyone unifies their minds and thinks of each other, we can even create a better world.

We do not consider just the Konohana Family as our family, but all people of the world.

Nations fight against each other, and there are even conflicts nationally. Moreover, conflicts do not cease amongst religions, which are supposed to save people. There are political confrontations, and there is also bullying and harassment in schools and work places. Even in small families, or between couples, quarrels occur.

The earth is one and everything is connected. However, borders are drawn everywhere and the earth is divided. When I think of myself, do I have any border in myself? Due to my strong ego, I protected myself, could not express my honesty, and did not understand how other people feel. I protected myself so firmly that it is no wonder that I received cervical cancer.

I received it, reached a dying stage where I cannot do anything by myself, and then I have finally realized that every place around me is full of love. I tried to do everything by myself, instead of depending on other people. I even thought it was better. Reflecting on my past, I think I trapped myself in a really hard shell. Now, I have learned to leave everything to the divine, trust other people, and release myself.

Isadon, the founder of the Konohana Family always says, “I do not have to think of myself. I always think of everyone. I do not need to think of myself because everyone else thinks of me.”

It is a world where everyone thinks of each other. I am you and you are I.

If everyone lives for the earth and humanity, a utopia will emerge on earth. In order to do so, first, I think I should remove the walls I have made around me.
