Title of the Newsletter

農 業 革 命

Agricultural Revolution

When agriculture changes,
the world changes!

A lively season has arrived at our fields this year, too!
We deeply breathe in a vibrancy full of life, as those who live with the farmer’s spirit is our basis, on an earth where young leaves sparkle in the warm sunlight, colorful flowers bloom, and many insects fly lively around. How rich a world of life is when woven by nature! From a long, long time ago, humans have received abundant blessings given by nature to live, and also our lives have been supported in the circulation of interdependent beings.

However, before we knew it, people came to forget about communicating with nature. “I want to be rich”, “I want more”, such thoughts have expanded in the human mind, and people came not to see nature’s blessings. As a result, they began to distort nature for their own convenience.

At many agricultural sites, farmers do not communicate with crops, and a large amount of chemical fertilizers remain in the soil in quantities that cannot be absorbed. As a result, it has flowed out and polluted underground water and rivers. The crops, which have lost their life balance by unnatural fertilizers, have a reduced resistance to diseases and insects, to a point where agricultural chemicals have become necessary.

Both agricultural chemicals and chemical fertilizers have been made through the development of chemical weapons during the past major wars. In the postwar era, the US started to control food in Japan, by shifting bombs and tanks into agricultural chemicals and chemical fertilizers. Many people who were driven by greed followed this, and a disintegrated world commenced. Those who sought production succeeded, the diversity of crops disappeared, and the ecosystem began to lose its balance.

In fact, the food which we humans continue to eat every day look healthy but they continue to destroy not only nature but also our own lives. This is the reality of the agriculture method, which is the mainstream of the modern era.

Still, nature continues to give
We live our daily life, being mainly aware of the “visible world”. The “invisible world” of mind and thoughts exists behind this “visible world.” Both the visible and invisible world together are called “the world of life (the phenomenal world).” Further in the back of this, “the world of vibrancy (the potential world)” exists, which is the source of all lives. We humans come from the world of vibrancy into the world of life, gain a physical body, experience various matters, and return to the world of vibrancy. We repeat this process infinitely.

However, when humans are trapped in something visible, their consciousness comes to circulate only in the “visible world.” This is the figure of modern agriculture. Common farmers tend to arrange only the appearance, and do not see the potential nature of existence. As a result, they repeatedly produce crops superficially, and then increased the distortion of this world.

However, when we get out of this trapped state, and understand the whole system of this world, we will be able to see how subtle, beautiful and infinite the world is. Then, we do not need to live with greed and anxiety, and everything will come to us with great abundance, just by receiving things as they are.

We farmers cultivate our fields in the society through producing food which is truly beautiful and full of universal life force. Agriculture is the basis of human life. When agriculture changes, the world greatly changes.

We have sought true wealth and reached here —

Welcome to an exquisitely beautiful world!

Let’s have a look at
the history of FARMING!

In the vast universe, the earth incessantly moves forward.
We are constantly moving forward with a new world.

TIME OF HUNTING & GATHERING

    • Humans migrate where they can harvest food.竪穴式住居
    • Humans flowed with the nature and lived off of anything they could gather.

 Human and Nature are one
縄文&弥生時代

 

BEGINNING OF FARMING

 Approx. 10000 years ago高床式倉庫

    • Humans could produce food systematically through the development of farming.

 ➡ They began to settle down and form societies

    • Marked by a change in the passive to active lifestyle.

Beginning of possession
縄文&弥生時代-001Humans put more priority on knowledge and technologies than intuition.

 


INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION

 Approx. 250 years ago

    • Industrialization had dramatically proceeded with technical revolution and the drastic change of human life style.
    • Human population began to increase at an accelerating pace.
    • Humans pursued to further materialize wealth and develop science.

    Opening of a mass production & mass consumer society.

     

     WORLD WAR I
    WORLD WAR II  

     

    GRATE AGRICULTURAL REVOLUTION AFTER THE WAR

    爆弾

    To recover from the devastation of the war, increases in food production were required.

    • The U.S., which privileges the capitalism, developed a strategy to control agriculture = the basis of human life, all over the world.
    • Unlike permicultural methods, which adapt food requirements to the local environment, the HYV methods (a high-yield cultivar) which need massive chemical fertilizers prevailed.農薬散布
      The mass production of homogenized crops have become the conventional agricultural method which uses chemical fertilizers and agrichemicals.
      ➡ The establishment of a high profit global corporate system.

    Beneath the surface of agricultural exploitation, vast issues have arisen related to: environmental pollution, ecological degradation, and the depletion of ground water through abstraction techniques.

     

    Here below is an Introduction to Modern Agriculture –

    Potential & Phenomenal Worlds

    Conventional Agriculture

    No.1 Cause of Environmental Pollution
    Chemical Fertilizers, Agrichemicals, GMOs, and Seed Manipulation

    • Main Stream in the Modern Society.
    • Due to the need for human convenience, the essential life force of nature has deteriorated.
    • Without a relationship between humans and nature, the collective system becomes destroyed.
    • Humans do not have an objective perspective to see the “whole picture” because they can only see what is visible to the physical senses.
    • ➡ Human cannot see that the cause of the problem is themselves.
      Human only see the surface of the phenomena, and tolerate it, without improving their attitude. Consequently, this creates more problems.

    Farmer 

    Distorted crops will be distributed to a society that have no place in nature, and invade the physical and spiritual body of humans.
    A Chain Effect of Distortion

    People forget the will of universe since they are trapped with the desire to fulfill their own benefit and convenience.

     

    Organic Agriculture

    Organic farmer
    However・・・

        • There are a lot of strict rules.
        • High expenses are required to obtain an organic farming certificate.
        • Still emphasizes crop production and consumer dependency.
        • In fact, organic farmers do not increase their productivity and consumers.

    They are restricted by their desire for money and the rules wrapped with consumerism, so their purpose in life is to live for selling crops, and live without a priority on nature.

    Put more priority to oneself than a will of universe.

     

    Natural Farming

        • It emerged based on the spirituality that flows with the system nature.

        • Later, it became more scientifically acceptable and the spirituality was forgotten.
        • The purpose of scientific researchers is to attract social acceptance.
        • Spirituality of everyday life is not questioned.

    Universal Circulation Method

    Shift from a self-centered way of life
    to 
    living with the universal will

    “Universal” means the original and pure vibrancy which is not distorted by humans, and the way the whole of the universe is.

    We are a life that has been given a particular role in the universal system of lives, which are interdependent with each other. When you realized this fact, humans can release their own ego, and perceive the world of vibrancy as the deepest part of life. Humans can harmonize with the most beautiful vibration of existence, and live with all other creatures, together, in the rich circulation of life.

    When you live with the universe, without planning, naturally lacking elements will be compensated.
    = The world which is everything circulates abundantly and does not need to have uneasiness and compete. 

    In harmony, crops grow spontaneously with an abundance of life force.

    Farmers learn the system of this world with crops, gain an ability to see through the nature of things, and nurture the source which make life more beautiful and healthy. That vibrancy spreads to the society as food and the whole society becomes more beautiful.

    The state of all life becomes active and

    Fully actualizes the unique talents of each being to form one complete life is

    the earth itself.

    At Konohana Family,
    We use materials that follow the natural system,And grow crops with the Universal Circulation Method.

     Microbial Materials

    Microorganisms are the first life form that emerge from the world of vibrancy and they exist in various places such as in soil, water, air, food and our body. Since the very beginning of the establishment of the community, we utilized microbial materials such as “Konohana Kin” which we uniquely cultured by adding highly anti-oxidized leaves of red pine, loquat, bamboo and seasonal plants, and also a brown rice amino-acid, a photosynthesized microorganism to enhance the biodiversity of our rich rice and vegetable fields.
    Microorganisms are very sensitive, so they are greatly influenced by the state of the human mind, which plays a role in microbial development. When humans release their attachments and receive whatever nature provides, the microorganisms can enrich the crops and natural environment with their beautiful vibrancy, full of undistorted life force.
    Also, microorganisms have a function to purify the soil and river. They are a wonderful component in natural circulation!

    Clino Zeolite

    Clino Zeolite is made of incinerated zeolite which is a mineral made of coagulated volcanic rock, which generates a negative electrical charge.
    In earth’s long history, plants have always evolved by taking nutrients, which are broken down (eroded) organic matters in the soil (such as the carcass of animals or plants from the previous generations).

    Clino Zeolite enhances nutrient absorption in the soil, that otherwise could not occur due to the excessive applications of chemical fertilizers, to an eroded state with its magnetic power. As well, it adjusts the soil’s environment to its original capacity that has been developed over evolution, and allows for restored soil composition.

    Neem

    Neem is an evergreen tree native to India and is referred to as the “Miracle Neem”. It contains various natural effective substances such as Azadirachtin, and prevents the growth of true fungi that cause diseases; in addition to suppressing the appetite and reproduction of insects. However, curiously, it is a miracle plant that does not affect beneficial insects or animals.

    Zeolite adjusts the soil balance and supports the body of crops, and Neem protects crops from disease epidemics and insects due to environmental changes caused by global warming.

    In fact, it turns out that NPO Green Grass imports this neem product from Thailand with the connection of Phra Sangkom, who is one of the participants of the Earth Summit (hosted by the NPO Green Grass in November, 2015). A necessary thing will naturally come — that is the life of the Universal Circulation Method!

    Let’s Make Hydrogen Water
    with Rice Rinsing Water!

    one small step

    Radical Oxygen causes many diseases and aging to the body, and also shortens the longevity of materials. Then, hydrogen water can get a lot more attention to improve these state; however, hydrogen servers or makers are expensive.

    Good News!
    You can make it very easily with something that you throw away on a daily basis.

    A Very Easy Way to Make It!

    You can use either brown rice or polished rice. Rinse them well three times. Pour the rinsed water after the third time into a sealable container or a bottle in order to prevent exposure to air. Leave it for fermentation at room temperature for 24 hours. If you live in a tropical area, leave it for 12 hours. If you live in a cold area, leave it bit longer. By tasting, you will find the best timing. That’s it! You can make natural reduction water.

    The best one has a beautiful fermented taste from the fermented rice water, and does not have a sour flavor or that of mere simple water.

    *Please use it up within 48 hours since the effects will be lost after 24 hours.

    How Amazing! – How to Use the Hydrogen water.

    • Prevent oxidization of your body which causes some disease by drinking it every day.
    • Use as a skin lotion and a bathing agent. It gives moisture to your skin.
    • Mix with warm water and massage your scalp as a substitute for shampoo. It can help prevent hair loss and the greying of hair.
    • Use as a mouth wash and tooth paste. It prevents the oxidization of your mouth and prevention of cavities, and smoothen the surface of teeth.
    • Use for house cleaning, and washing clothes and/or dishes. Without detergent, it refreshes things very well.

    It is very easy to make, so please try it first! Synthetic detergents pollute the world’s water. If you replace it to this H-water, it will make the rivers and oceans cleaner, and you do not need to buy detergents and soaps because it is biodegradable.

    How wonderful that we can totally utilize what we have thrown away every day!
    The earth is designed to circulate and harmonize everything.

    Let’s be in the flow of this universal circulation together!

Water connects people in the world to be ONE

Dear Friends,

On behalf of Konohana Family, I would like to announce that we had such a beautiful festival and rituals beginning on January 28th this year with a lot of laughter, tears and joy, and closed the whole process on February 4th.

Thank you for bringing water from your region for the “Fuji Sengen Konohana Matsuri (Festival) 2016”! We have received sacred water from 33 countries (59 places) internationally, and 22 places in Japan. In total, sacred water from 34 countries, 81 places were fused together into one pot and heated.

The main day of the festival on January 30th began with this ritual to heat the water. When water is turned into steam and steam goes up, the divine can come down into the festival with steam as its vehicle. When the festival proceeds, people purify their spirits and dance together all day. As a result, they can remember the life purpose of becoming one with the divine, which they have forgotten for a long time. At the end of the festival, the heated water was spread around the whole Earth so that this sacred water reminds all the people in the world of the importance of purifying their spirit.

On February 3rd, the ritual of fire and water was offered. All the materials used in the festival were burned to return to the divine. Also, the portion of sacred water used in the festival was poured into a sacred river in this area in order to return it to the ocean, the source of the Earth.

Originally in Japan, politics and festival have the same origin and both were pronounced as, “Matsuri Goto.” “Matsuri” means improving our spirit in order to serve for the world and people, and also live together with the divine. Therefore, we consider this festival as a ritual to breathe life into this world so that true peace prevails on Earth. That is why, it is important to live with the spirit of “Matsuri” in our daily life and Konohana Family members practice it every day.

We deeply appreciate everyone who participated in this sacred ritual in various ways.
We hope you will have a chance to come over and join the festival next year to experience the unity with the divine and spread harmonious vibrancy to the whole Earth together!

with warmest regards,
Michiyo Furuhashi
on behalf of Konohana Family

Various Demons show up in this festival. Demons are considered as Gods, and urge us to look at our ego in our heart. When each one of us becomes aware of the ego in our heart and transform it to use for the bigger purpose with a wide worldview, we can make this world a harmonious place. They are a powerful reminder.

Please Join The True School from February 14 – March 12, 2016

True School Participants 2015

We are at the greatest Turning Point!

There are people who question the current society and search for a new way of life.

Reflecting back to the history, the era always changed and transformed, and people sought a new way of life to go beyond the conventional social frame from the role of worker to that of change agent. Currently, the whole earth is facing such a difficult moment, therefore, increasing this kind of people must be the proof that the time has come for human beings to change our life style.

Let’s take a look at the universe.

The earth takes one year to go around the sun, and the sun also does not stay at the same position. Our solar system goes around the central sun which is the center of the galaxy by taking 22,600,000 years for one cycle. Our solar system does not move only in a cyclical movement, but also a spiral movement every 25,800 years as one cycle, and goes around the central sun by repeating the movement 9000 times as one cycle. The nine planets including the earth go around the sun with spiral movement, and the whole solar system keeps moving in the universal space with 240 km/ second. (Please check this video.)

As the earth has the winter solstice once a year, the solar system has a winter solstice every 25800 years. The winter solstice is the peak of darkness which has least light. On December 21, 2012, the solar system had the winter solstice, and changed from the cycle, which moves toward the darkness to the cycle that increases the light. Increasing light means that the truth which has been hidden in the darkness becomes clear.

Turning point

Is this story of universe mind-boggling for you?

However, in fact, we are living in the universe.

Pluto takes 248 years to go around the sun, which indicates to us the end of the materialistic era after the 250 years of industrial revolution in Europe. Also, the civilization cycle of East and West switch places of rise and fall every 800 years describes that we are at the turning point from the western materialistic civilization to the eastern spiritual civilization.

West&East Civilization Cycle

Moreover, the Chinese Universe Calendar tells us that the “The Era of People” begins now, after 3000 years of “The Era of Kings” and the next 3000 years of “The Era of Saint.” It is not the era that only one excellent leader will guide the whole. The era begins where every person will awaken.

We are surely at the greatest turning point of the era.

About “The One Month True School”

 “The One Month True School” is a place where you can read this flow of extraordinary era, and disclose your emotions that are generated in there, and you will awaken to who you really are.

Many people feel difficulties as they live and lose hope in modern society. The long lived materialism has brought a lot of problems to the society, and people are still dreaming happiness on the extension of the same value system. However, the hope for the new era is beyond conventional values.

In the One Month True School, we pull up each individual’s consciousness by offering information that you did not think of on your own. Rather we discuss and search together to widely open your worldview. By doing so, you will understand which state our current society is in and the meaning of our current social difficulties. Thus, we gain the ability to think of what kind of ways would be good for you and also the earth.

Mind-control is done by grasping and controlling the characteristics of your mind objectively. We, human beings can establish a healthy world for us and also other life forms and rejuvenate the whole earth to the harmonious world by using that control or new learning.

In any era, each individual surely achieves one’s own role, and bears the era. When you awaken to consciously shift the era by reading the flow and playing your own role as you are rather than just being bombarded by the wave of the era, human beings will live with hope as a cell of the earth which keeps metabolizing and welcomes death with hope.

The earth is one life.

Welcome to a learning opportunity that can awaken you to your role as a person who plays a key role in your life to live dynamically with a rich spirit!

You are Meant to Be Born for This World

~ Prescription of Cancer in the 21st Century:
From Trapped to Inspired ~

I am an observer of this world. I always observe beings in this world, in people, and in nature. I can find there are various laws in that observation. However, most people put priority on their desires or interests, they cannot notice the laws. Therefore, the world that human beings created ignores the laws, as a result, contradictions have generated on the earth. Now, the contradictions have reached the peak of human society. In a way, that describes the high capability of human beings. However, that high capability is not always expressed in a good direction because that high capability can be used to bring about extremely negative matters, such as wars.

In this state, we, human beings live a very unhealthy life every day. One of those unhealthy phenomena is the invasion of chronic diseases. Currently, cancer is the top resultant of death in Japan. So, I thought about the feelings of those cancer cells. They have such a high capability and excellence in a way. They know the suitable ranges for their habitat and once the environment is set, they expand their power exponentially. They spread their power by parasitically surviving off of other living creatures.  From this statement, can you imagine the current state of human beings who are living on this container called the Earth?

Cancer cells make a suitable area and go into that frame. When someone gets trapped in their thoughts, it is described as 囚in the Chinese character. This shows person (人) is trapped in a frame (□). When the bottom part of this frame is removed, an entrance is created and information is coming from outside, and when the top part is removed (門), a law of the universe will come in. When it happens, Trapped (囚) becomes Inspired (閃). When one is trapped, thoughts go around in one’s brain, and the person lives only with thoughts based on own values.スライド1In contrast, the trapped state is called “horizontal” thoughts.  When the horizontal thought follow the vertical thought, it functions soundly, and when this vertical energy (|) and the horizontal energy (-) meet, they become oneness (十) and it is the same structure as the earth. Our body, the solar system, the galaxies, and the universe are also the same structure. The cross of Christianity is also the same. In Katakamuna (ancient Cosmo-physics which emerged about 13,000 years ago), is read as the path from (-) Hi (means 1 one) to (十) To (means 10 ten), and together it is read as (十) Hito (means human) which describes well-established enlightened human beings.

スライド3Cancer cells create their own world when they find a suitable area for them to live. However, even the environment is pre-established for the cancer cell in order to increase its population in someone’s stomach, generally, the cancer cell does not spread around, because there is an immunizing power to suppress the cancer cell in the human body. There, the cancer cell follows the laws of their inhabitant area, when the gate opens they take a role 閃 (inspired), and they function as normal cells.

However, when we try to understand the Chinese character for cancer (癌), it describes when one carries goods (品) up a mountain (山), one will be sick (病), and this letter indicates greedy human characteristics. Cancer cells have a high capability and expand their area more and more. For example, if they go into the stomach, rather than focusing on their own role in the stomach, they change the cells which have various roles in the stomach into cancer cells. They end up creating a cancer dominated world, and the function of the areas where the cancer has increased begin to break down. Ultimately, the important functions stop working in the body, and the whole life function will be terminated. As a result, those cancer cells die together. The cancer cells are naturally co-existing with other cells when the host body is healthy; however, if they ignore and spend their capability only in order to expand their world, they end up killing themselves.

However, the problem is not only the cancer cells. Naturally, our body can be balanced between the cancer cells and normal cells. Therefore, increasing cancer cells means there is surely a cause to make the ecosystem disturbed in our body, and that helps to increase the cancer cells. For example, eating food that enhances the cancer cell, or creating such an environment, or keeping a state of mind that resonates with cancer cells. The cancer cell resonates with a greedy state which holds heaps of goods. That is the state of closing one’s gate and not harmonizing and connecting with others.

Originally, cancer cells did not exist as cancer cells. When conditions are set, normal cells turn into cancer cells. Looking at cancer cells like this, can you see them as the current human beings on earth? Human beings are also originally generated from nature, and they acquired ego within the circulation of lives, put priority ego based conditions, and as a result turned into the cancer cell of the Earth. That is how the current human beings exist as cancer cells on the earth. In that sense, the leaders of the modern society who keep putting a burden on the earth are more or less the leaders of the cancer cells. When we see how human beings were originally in a mutually beneficial position with the earth’s ecosystem, must the leaders of future human beings totally flip around their conventional values?

If the human beings do not change the current attitude, the universe and the earth’s ecosystem will give us realization for our problems through various phenomena that reflect such attitudes. This is the message to “Connect with others and harmonize”. Moreover, this message tells us, “You are meant to be born for this world and this world gives birth to you.”

In the early days, people did not get cancer so much; however, more and more people get cancer currently. According to the recent statistics, one in three Japanese people die with cancer, and one in two people get some sort of cancer in one’s life. From there we can see that the attitude of the current society reflects those who put priority on themselves and do not care of others, are attached to money and goods because people do not feel connected with each other, and therefore they feel an uneasiness to their lives. The current people think happiness is about having a lot of money and goods, and misunderstand thinking that achieving is one’s success. However, that is the opposite attitude from the superior being’s which human beings naturally should be. The cancer cells tell us, “Your attitude for living is exactly like being cancer cells.” Once your heart opens and becomes harmonious, the cancer cells end their role and naturally vanish.

Since entering into the 21st century, human beings face many more difficulties in many ways. However, that is not a problem in this world. Your very small attachment to your daily life becomes big, links and forms this whole world’s reality. At the same time, our individual problems and worries that are shown in this society are also contributing toward this reality. Therefore, when we release ourselves from our small trapped situations in order to solve those problems, then that becomes the key for our resolution. Each of us has the key in our hand.

No one would like to be like a cancer cell. Naturally, we were born for this world, so our real purpose as Hito十 (human beings) is to contribute to this world, end one’s life with pride, and that is the ideal human life. Please take a look at yourself and think about how human beings are supposed to live.

First of all,
change your Trapped
to Inspired.

Cancer cell to healthy cell
