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.
＊If you would like to learn more deeply about the 21st century View of Life and Death, please refer to the Japanese weblog for the One-Month Truth School, “The View of Life and Death –Become One with Death and Live.” http://khfm.us/life-and-death
The One-Month Truth School is the program to stay at the Konohana Family for a month, and learn about the 21st century worldview from various aspects.
Now that it has been 13.8 billion years since the universal creation of the Big Bang, and 4.6 billion years from the creation of the earth, we are experiencing severe changes. This is occurring through many overlapping turning points, which is a relationship woven by the stars!
Out of all, the most significant turning point is “the winter solstice of the galaxy” which we had 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.
Having the winter solstice of the galaxy means that the sun has faced the peak of darkness with the least amount of light in one solar spiral. It has been five years from the winter solstice of the galaxy. Therefore, we have entered an era when the light has started to shine from the peak of darkness. This darkness indicates the spiritual darkness. People cannot see the truth in the darkness, so things that they thought were right, and took action on, have brought about confusion to society. The conventional era was the one in which people insisted upon themselves and made conflicts in order to seek their own happiness. As a result, abundance was gained by only some people, which created a gap between the rich and the poor, and has spread poverty and conflict all around the world. Because people had no other standard of truth, their only choice was to continue to live in this way even though this has led to suffering.
A 248 year cycle of Pluto and the flow of the era
-The end of Western civilization, which began during the Industrial Revolution-
Symbolizing the era of darkness, Pluto reached the height of its cycle in 2008. In 2008, Pluto made a circuit of 248 years which led to the end of the Western material civilization that has continued for 250 years from the Industrial Revolution. People have developed Western science, physics and technology during the Industrial Revolution. On one hand, people have achieved economic growth, on the other, the world population has increased explosively, ignoring the global environment. As a result, this has brought various issues on earth. In a sense, the values based on Western civilization have reached their peak. As a phrase, “Every tide has its ebb” describes, after the universe reaches its peak, it always declines.
Humans who cannot receive the next vision
Now that we have faced the peak of darkness on December 21st, 2012, the darkness of the social structure becomes obvious as the light gradually shines in. Also, it seems that the state of human society goes from bad to worse as the status of the earth gets worse. Intellects in the world have figured out the great shift in the era, but nobody has a guideline of how to live for the next era. In fact, world leaders operate based on their national ego, and nobody has wisdom to guide the world to harmony beyond borders.
If we place the history of the earth into one year, 250 years from the Industrial Revolution occurred at 11:59:58 pm on December 31st. All humans are bound by only two-seconds of mind control, which is the value of the Western material civilization, and nobody seems to have yet transcended that idea.
We cannot become happy under the 20th century type of values anymore.
At the beginning of the 21st century, how will we humans perceive this historical chaos?
When You Know the System of World Affairs, It Is Interesting!
-The Era of Chaos Which Cannot Be Measured
by Conventional Knowledge-
Humans have sought happiness as an extension of gratifying their own desires, and developed society under such a value. And now, a dead end has reached its peak in every aspect, and the next generation has to pay the price.
《Environment》 Arctic sea ice will disappear in 2050!?
Now that global warming has advanced at an accelerated rate and Arctic sea ice has shrunk rapidly, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicts that there will be nearly ice-free summers in the Arctic. There is no one perfect way to predict summer sea ice loss in the Arctic, so NOAA looked at three approaches that result in widely different dates. But, all three suggest nearly sea ice-free summers in the Arctic before the middle of this century.
The current society has been based on a full commitment to economy. On one hand, some people feel happy and sad about the stock price movement every day. On the other hand, when the stock price rises, the economic activities become active, which gives more burden to the earth and advances global warming. Do you know of such a structure?
《Agriculture》《Food》 Agriculture and livestock industry, which is supposed to provide food as the source of our life, is currently the worst cause of environmental pollution.
At a modern agricultural site, a large amount of chemical substances, such as chemical fertilizers and herbicides, have been used in order to produce the mass yield of crops. As a result, soil, underground water and rivers have been polluted. Food which is produced with an intention of human greed, such as “I want to harvest more!”, “I want to earn more money!” is taken into the body of people who live with the desires of “I want to eat more delicious food!”, also with such a vibrancy of greed. In this manner, more unhealthy food is produced and consumed, more contradictions emerge as diseases in our body. There is a reality that the illness of humans, who are cells on the earth, makes the whole earth unhealthy.
《Society》A tide of wandering refugees have emerged! -The number of world refugees is 6.8 million, which is the biggest in history-
As we trace human history, we can see that the western civilization and the eastern civilization switch with every 1600-year cycle, and in the year 2000, the cycle changed. Interestingly, when the cycle switched over, the world convulsion and migration was surely underway. Now that we have faced the turning point of the year 2000, 5,500,000 Syrian refugees have migrated to Europe. Furthermore, currently we are facing a dead-end of assisting refugees in Africa, and the number of world refugees has reached 68 million!
Now, more refugees than ever in human history exist on earth. This has occurred because we have faced an unprecedented apex at which various turning points have overlapped, such as the 100 million- year cycle of global mass extinction, the 25800-year cycle of one spiral of the Sun, the 1600-year cycle of civilizations, and the 248-year cycle of Pluto’s orbital motion. When we trace the history of the earth, we have never had such a period at which so many turning points arrived around the same time.
We can say that this great turning point indicates the result of an ever expanded human greed and devotion for wealth as an extension of desire. The independence movement that is happening all over the world has resulted from the distortion created by each nation. All issues such as the Catalan independence in Spain, the Northern Ireland issue in the U.K., the Kurd issue in Syria, express a tendency of deep attachment to race. Therefore, it can be said that this great turning point is a phenomena that will lead the whole of humanity to unite once again.
《Economy》 The Chinese tactic of enacting “the 21st century silk road” is just an extension of 20th century economic growth.
China is still a communist country, but its capitalistic economy promotes rapid growth, which casts a gloomy shadow over China as a great contradiction. China is trying to find the possibilities of developing the next economic growth under the slogan “”, which is a vast economic zone design to link Europe to China by building the “Silk Road in the 21st century.” In other words, China is going to accomplish further economic development by two trade routes — “Silk Road Economy Belt (One Belt)” that connects Central Asia to Europe, and “the Ocean Silk Road in the 21st century (One Road)” that leads from the South China Sea through the Indian Ocean to Europe.
Through China’s intention, we can see why China has been called “the factory of the world” and is going to be “the economic center of the world” from now on, as well as an information source of the world. The symbol of this project is the coast-to-coast railroad which ties Europe to China that has been organized under the leadership of the Chinese government. Now that unprecedented environmental destruction is occurring, originally undeveloped lands are becoming industrialized. Surely, this is bringing about great contradictions as the natural environment is transformed into cities. This is bringing about a cancerous state on the earth.
If the “One Belt, One Road” becomes successful, it is predicted to create a huge economic area, which will involve more than 60% of the world’s population and 30% of the total GDP. If people continue this 20th century-type economic expansion based on human greed regardless of the era, this “Silk Road design in the 21st century” will not only bring about further distortion to China, but also the entire world.
《Politics》 American President Donald Trump was born as a product of the era, which indicates that the era requires a new value.
It has been about 250 years since the foundation of the United States and about 130 years since the construction of skyscrapers in New York City, which is insignificant in the 4.6 billion-year history of the earth. However, from the universal point of view, we can say that beautifully developed Manhattan has developed a state of skin cancer and has lost its original natural beauty, which is considered as the focus of disease on earth.
Now that we have passed the great turning point of the “Winter Solstice of the Galaxy” on December 21st, 2012, and the light has begun to come in, the real intention of the United States has come to the surface. That is “America First”, which is also occurring in Great Britain. Originally the United States was the generous multinational leader; therefore, the United States had been considered as a great country. However, they were only seeking their own profit in the end. According to documents which have not been released in the past, we can see that the United States has flourished through manufacturing wars as a global strategy. Now, we can see that this country has flourished through exploitation of poor countries in Africa and Asia. Therefore, it is just an illusion to see the United States as a world representative.
Great Britain and the United States have led the world under a hegemony of greed through seeking their own abundance, and other countries in the world have followed. It can be said that President Trump was elected as proof of the end of such an era. For President Trump, who was needed by the era and subsequently inaugurated, he has an important role to cause great confusion and disturbance through existing nationalism. Originally, the United States was a generous multinational leader, however the time has come when they will let go of their own greed and contributed their accumulated wealth to the world. When modern people think about the world on a global level, and become aware of the original purpose of humanity, true peace will prevail on earth.
《Education》 The cause of the current chaos is nations and people who do not reflect on themselves, considering they have no problems
Currently, people with the most advanced intelligence in the world get a job in the financial industry. In modern society, people who have distorted values, such as “The one who has money controls the world”, intelligence is only used for calculating profits-and-losses, and that leads the front lines of the current world. At the base of such consciousness, people put their priority on earning money as if it were a game, like through operating a hospital or charging lawyer’s fees from lawsuits; rather than having the thought “Let’s make this world better.”
The existence of such people has brought about an unkind way of life in society and the earth as a result. Many of those people did not think about the whole, became convinced that they were superior, and aimed for their own happiness. Then, they ended up as cancerous cells for the earth. This kind of value has spread all over the earth, and the original function for intelligence has been abused. People with a superior memory are considered to be an excellent person in the current society.
However, the most important thing for us as a living being is the ability to co-exist to other life forces. Originally, human intelligence was for making this world healthy so all of the people could become abundant. In modern society, that intelligence is used to make individual profits. That is why such a present condition is an extremely abnormal state.
The Solution for Future Exists Here
Mystery of the human body The truth is that organs communicate with each other
Did you know that “Neither the brain or heart is the command center of the human body”? As a matter of fact, every single organ and cell expresses a will and sends commands to each other. This is how the entire body exists. For example, the kidney plays the role of filtering blood, excreting waste products out of the body, and absorbing substances which are necessary for the body. When the kidney transcends the peak of its filtering function, it cannot deal with toxic substances any longer. Then, it begins to flow message substances through the blood in order to command the necessary organs. Interestingly, the brain is not involved in such a situation. Therefore, we came to understand that each and every organ exchanges information and directly communicates with each other to play a role in maintaining the health of our entire body.
The structure of the human body is exactly the same as the figure of the global ecosystem and the solar system
In the unboundedly vast universe, the earth does not exist alone. Only when the earth orbits the sun, there is the meaning of its existence. As the third planet in the solar system, it collaborates with other planets and expresses one life of the solar system. The sun orbits the galaxy and expresses one life in the Milky Way galaxy along with many other stars. Moreover, the Milky Way galaxy expresses one life in an even bigger group of galaxies.
A diversity of living beings exist on earth itself, and all lives work together to form one life as the global ecosystem. Every cell of the earth is made up of each human. As for the human body, 60 trillion cells gather and form one body. Therefore, the structure of the human body is exactly the same system as the figure of the global ecosystem and the universe itself.
The era has arrived when each one of us, who is a cell of the earth, becomes awakened
In the honeybee community in the natural world, worker bees, which have the shortest life span and a rapid metabolism, hold the key to the future of the entire community. In the same manner, in our body, each cell, which is the smallest unit of life, has a will. When each cell’s information is gathered as a whole, each organ becomes aware of its role and the entire human body is governed with health.
When we place this structure into the global life network, the way of thinking and living for each one of us holds the key to the future of the earth. Currently, we are facing a great turning point in which we will either create more chaos to the earth, or we will make it a healthy and harmonious world. We have developed advanced civilizations and technologies, so we live in this era abundantly in terms of materials. However, we have created a poor world with many conflicts and serious disparities due to human-centered ways of living and ignoring other lives. We can say that we humans are like cancer cells which destroy harmony in the body. Only when we become aware of that and transform from cancer cells into healthy cells, other lives will be happy with our existence. Now, the era has arrived when we humans express our intelligence on earth and in the whole universe.
As the planets in the solar system are aware of each role, communicate with each other, and take an infinite and eternal journey precisely along with the sun, each one of us should become aware of our own role and take actions in order to bring harmony and peace to the world. The era has come when we express such an original way of being as humans.
The reason why young people, who are supposed to create the next era, have lost their motivation to work and direction in life, is because conventional human values do not create a healthy world. So, once the direction is set, they will naturally have hope for the next era.
As the phrase, “whole body and soul” describes, when people living on earth become awakened and the network of awakening blooms on earth, we will express a world in which humans have not stepped into yet. Now that the door of the 21st century has opened, we humans have begun a great journey toward the 30th century.
Only when humans become awakened, Will the current chaos on earth naturally settle. Just as the macrocosm expands infinitely, the infinite possibilities of the microcosm hidden in each one of us will become realized.
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”!
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.
It was about 30 years ago. I owned an interior coordinating company at that time. I was driving a car on the freeway to go from Komaki-city where I lived to Toyota-city where I worked. When I was driving the car, the white dashed lines which divided the lanes of the road flowed backwards. It looked like the flow of time.
Going from Komaki to Toyota means that Komaki becomes the past and Toyota becomes the future. The white dashed lines flowed continuously. Toyota came closer to me with each moment and Komaki became further away. After I finished my work and returned home, the direction became the opposite. This time, Komaki became the future and Toyota became the past. The dashed lines flowed from Komaki to Toyota. Komaki came closer to me gradually and Toyota became further away.
I wondered, “What is this world?” At that time, I was heading to Komaki from Toyota. Then, I realized that I had boarded time, instead of moving from one place to another. Each dashed line became a frame of time, which came closer to me from the future to the present, and became farther away into the past. Horizontal scenes flowed backward, and it seemed to be the flow of events.
The American President at that time was President Reagan. I thought people who live in faraway countries, even President Reagan boarded upon this thin stretch of time, feeling the white dashed lines, which continuously flowed backward as the flow of time. Everything which exists as a phenomenon boards upon this time, which is very thin. If something or someone gets off this vehicle of time even for a moment, we cannot see it anymore. Death is something like that.
Perhaps, if we deviate from this thin sliver of time, we might disappear instead of dying. And if we can come back to this again, what disappeared will reemerge suddenly.
We recognize the past because it has reached the present after a time that went through such infinitesimal moments, like the advancing frames of a cartoon. So, the past exists even now. Then, the future exists also now. Since we go through this row of narrow moments with the advancing contexts of time, it seems like it moves and phenomena occur. As a sequence of frames becomes a cartoon, all moments exist in the universe now, and continue endlessly. I wonder if we exist by going through each moment.
I circulated such thoughts and saw the white dashed lines of the freeway flow backward. Everything and everyone including President Reagan boarded upon this. We are time people, so we always exist with time. This world flows.
The Fleeting World
Humans seem to understand that time never stops and moves in this manner, but actually they do not. It moves really quickly. In terms of individuals, this means that death is coming. In a bigger picture, time proceeds and the era moves. In its mechanism (I do not know if I should call it a mechanism), planetary movement creates the motion of time. Invisible planetary gears match with each other, and move the invisibility of time from past to future in a one-way direction.
Surprisingly, the mega system of time and space returns to its origin again. However, it is not the same because it moves from point A to point A’. What sustains such a thing? We cannot understand it by thinking. It exists because it exists.
For example, human bodies have the same structure. As we move from the point A of today to the point A’ of tomorrow, a row of days consumes our lifetime with time. When a cell dies, decays and leaves the body, a new cell with the same role is born in that place and plays a role in maintaining the whole of the body. However, it is not the original A, but A’ which has evolved through one cycle. The aging of the whole body proceeds by such continuation, and lifetime is exhausted.
Then, errors occur once in a while. These become the causes of sickness such as cancer. The reason why errors occur is that humans do not live in accordance with the law of the world; however even such human nature is the law.
Our experiences from the past are incorporated in our DNA as information. There is various information to show people’s nature such as causes of sickness. If we become aware of this and remove them, then we will not become sick anymore. When we make a sequence of DNA healthy without worrying about sickness, it would be possible to create healthy humans as models based on a perfect design.
However, humans have a unique personality. As each person is original and unique, each is created as a slight deviation from the original design. It is an expression of ego, a habit, nature and individuality. The purpose of this world is that every existence is original, instead of creating the same thing like ready-made goods. It is a characteristic of a life. Nothing is the same. Humans have ego, so they can deviate from the law. However, such a human nature is within the law.
Although we encounter a life which we do not expect, we do not have to worry about it. What we should do is just accept the impermanence of this world. It is “Itadakimasu (meaning to receive in Japanese).”
“Itadakimasu” is that “Itadaki (meaning a summit in Japanese) masu (meaning to increase in Japanese).” When we continue to climb a mountain, we can see how high it is. That is, a life is a never-ending path. An attitude of “Itadakimasu (I receive what comes) enhances our spirituality endlessly.
The world changes. If we hope today will be the same as yesterday, try to hold onto our current wealth, or cry over losing something, a mind of resistance will emerge. From there, worries and pains are generated.
A long time ago, Buddha preached the four inevitabilities of human life (birth, aging, sickness and death) are human fate, so receiving a life as a human means encountering struggle. The four inevitabilities are a symbol of the impermanence of this world and are life itself. If we resist it, pain will emerge. Therefore, when we just receive what comes with the spirit of “Itadakimasu”, struggle will disappear automatically.
It is interesting. For example, an event occurred at a point in the past, and a negative emotion occurred. I allowed it to linger even after that, and became discouraged. But, if each moment continues and exists in the universe, and we move from moment to moment and continue to live, an emotion which emerged due to an event of the past does not last by itself. It is us that chooses to hold onto such negativity. We continue to hold it while the world moves seamlessly, so in a sense, it is intentional.
Events themselves do not express any emotion. We just react to them emotionally. Habits and natures inside of us withdraw such emotions. If we become aware of this, any worries and pains will disappear right away.
Feel the World
Everything moves. When we see them move in a straight line, we cannot capture the nature of motion. Unless we understand nature, we only perceive things simply. If we see things flow just from left to right in a straight line, we spend each moment unconscious and we cannot perceive the whole picture.
When time passes, “the present” goes by. The present is marked by each moment, and the world moves. Even at this moment, time continues.
When I wake up every morning, I think, “Oh, morning has come again.” I feel time continues to flow eternally in my daily life as dashed lines on roads flow backward. A new time comes every moment. Morning comes and night comes. Morning comes again and so does night. This is repeated endlessly. Not only time flows, but also there are always meetings with new events. Time never stops, each tick is a new moment, and continues to provide us encounters with new events. It is an enormous energy. This energy moves the world. However, most people are not aware of it and unconsciously soak into the motion brought about by time.
Why does this exist? For those who begin to think like this, the world seems very new and mysterious. However, for people who are not aware of it or have no interest in it, they might say, “What are you talking about?” It might be impossible to express it with words. It is not to be expressed with words, but to be sensed.
We board on time and move. The world moves this way, which is called the era. Time and the era, which move the world where we exist, is a life itself.
Most people are not aware of it. Even if we are aware of it, we cannot resist it. We cannot see it with our eyes. However, it does exist surely. It moves the world with an enormous energy and weaves a history. What is it?
It is like a Galaxy
Time surely ticks in a one-way direction. If you see it moving from yesterday to today to tomorrow in a straight line, the range of your thinking must be narrow. If we see it in a simple way, it looks like it moves from left to right. However, when things move, there is surely a point which becomes a center. Only when things with connections gather around it and begin to rotate, the motion continues. It is not a line but a rotational motion.
It is weaved by “connections.” “A revolving motion” is “a connecting motion.” Connections are promises. There is an invisible thread of connections, which connect separate things as promised. Then, the whole rotates and encompasses its surroundings. It is like a galaxy.
The point in the center of the circle looks still. However, it rotates around something with a bigger role. If the center becomes still, the outer rotational motion does not occur. Everything works together, so individual circles can exist.
If scientific people listen to it, they might ask, “What kind of system is it?” It is their role to unlock and prove it.
An Indian saint called a particle “a universal electron.” Indian thoughts had no concept of particles, but he understood the existence. Then, can we explain particles physically? It is not to be explained physically, but it is just a fact that this world consists of such matters. It is the same as KA, a universally infinitesimal particle which is much finer than particles. The existence is not to be explained physically, but to be sensed. It is the truth. Humans have an ability to sense it.
When Einstein imagined the theory of relativity, there was no physical evidence at that time. It was later acknowledged. Now, people praise it as a great discovery, however if it was expressed before its time, would it be accepted in the same way? Although it is not seen physically, what people feel is the truth.
The World is a Life Itself
Humans tend to interpret what they cannot unlock with physical logic. If so, the topic would be like “Why were lives born?”
The reason why lives were born is that the world exists. This world is a life itself, and three dimensional lives were born to prove that. These connections become the source of emergence for the three dimensional lives. Relationships unite the order of this world.
This world moves with an order. Lives are generated due to this. Order exists because there is a will to tie it together. Its ultimatum is God. The reason why lives were born is that there is order. Three dimensional lives were created in order to make humans realize that the world is a life.
However, for those who cannot see order here, God does not exist and lives are not generated. Although people see order, the existence of God and the origin of lives change freely, depending on which level they see order. Even if it is the same life, what humans see changes, depending on where their consciousness is. The world is free like this, and seeds of lives exist everywhere. Its answer always waits for us, even in the future where science explores.
This world exists by a rotational motion. It moves as promised under the law. In order to do so, an axis is necessary. There is an axis in the center of everything, which rotates around a bigger axis. Since there is the earth’s axis, the earth rotates with precession, vibrates, and revolves around the solar axis. The sun also rotates and revolves around the central sun (the center of the galaxy). In the same way, the galaxy revolves around something bigger. Nothing exists alone. Everything links infinitely, and makes each other exist in such a relationship. That is, the world is one.
“Connections (En in Japanese)” are “Circles (En in Japanese)”
Why can such a complicated motion continue to exist? When opposite qualities face each other, a new thing emerges. This system is called “Taiko-Hassei” and everything is under “Taiko-Hassei” to make each other exist. Connections are created under promises and are weaved by a rotational motion.
When we look at only one circle, the center looks still. For example, the sun looks still from the viewpoint of the solar calendar. However, in a bigger picture, we can see that even the sun rotates by a bigger connection, spirals and continues to revolve around a bigger matter. The spiral is the same structure as the DNA of our lives.
The macro world, such as the solar system and the universe, and the micro world, such as DNA, exist under the same structure. Events and relationships which humans encounter in life are under the same structure. Very interesting!
Those who will live in the next era should be aware of harmonizing with the great will (the flow of the era) by understanding such a universal system, instead of living with personal desires and ambitions.
Confusion Has a Meaning and it is Temporary
Various events have occurred in the world in 2016, and the world has been very chaotic. No matter what measure is taken, we cannot find a resolution. A chaotic situation like mud has continued, but world leaders have still continued to take similar measures as they think they can solve issues with a superficial strategy. The time will come when they will realize it is meaningless sooner or later.
If we expand our viewpoint, we can see the current confusion has a meaning and is temporary. If our lifetime is 80 years, it is just one third from the 248 years of one Pluto’s revolutions. If we compare the 4.6 billion-year history of earth to one year, our 80-year lifetime is just 0.7 seconds, which is less than 1 second.
As the white dashed lines of the freeway flow backward, time never stops and ticks surely. Infinite life and death are repeated through it, as a giant and complicated mechanism is very simple. This means that if we change our viewpoints, we can understand it very easily.
Can You Have This Viewpoint?
Expanding my mind in this way, I am coming back to a physical viewpoint. Now, the Konohana Family is preparing to open a satellite shop called “Lotus Land,” but it is just an event for a moment from this majestic flow of time. As long as we live on earth, it is important for us to stay with a cycle of brevity and become aware of the fact that our lives are woven through this. If we do not harmonize with it, then we will return our life and take a broader perspective.
In order to perceive broadly in this life, we need to enhance our consciousness. When we enter a bigger cycle of life, we can look down at things. If we are trapped in what we see, we cannot see it completely. When our consciousness goes beyond it and we look at the world, we can stand on the side of what is operating this world. The lesson is to reach such a stage.
It is the same system for looking at the world and operating it, through seeing my mind and controlling myself.
It is just the same. Our train of thoughts and even planetary motion are under the same structure. It is just where we apply this system. Do we apply it to the big universe, the global ecosystem or an individual life?
There is surely a central axis in a rotational motion. The central axis is the time line. The phenomenal world exists due to “Taiko-Hassei” of “time” and “space.” A vertical time line emerged, and the horizontal function of the space line was generated. Then, phenomena occur and its sequence weaves the era.
When we cut away a portion, it looks like a cross. It is the “+ (TO)” letter of the Katakamuna (an ancient civilization which existed in East Asia about 13000 years ago), meaning integration. However, it looks like a cross because it is expressed on a plane surface. In fact, the place line rotates and follows the time line which continues to proceed seamlessly. This means that the rotational motion of the spatial line always spirals. Moreover, the time line in the center revolves around a bigger time line and spirals. It is a very complicated relationship.
All phenomena rotate. What kind of connections do we have for phenomena we encounter through rotational motion? Is it close or far? The place changes, depending on that, and keeps a rotational motion under “Taiko-Hassei,” which is a life.
Circles (Connections) are infinite and the time line penetrates through every core. Therefore, time lines are everywhere in this world. Our body consists of about 60 trillion cells, and the time line penetrates in each cell. What an incredible universe!
Describing a spiral means that there is always a cycle. Each rotation has its own cycle. We humans have a cycle of 80-years per lifetime, and insects have a cycle of a few months. Bacteria might have a cycle of a few seconds and even stars have a cycle of billions of years. Infinite time lines from micro to macrocosm interlock complexly. It is the time line that penetrates all. When we can understand its structure, we can say that the era which weaves time is a life, and we, those who live the era are time travelers.
When connections are cut, a rotational motion stops and phenomena disappear. That is, a rotational motion sustains connections.
I wondered why the Japanese currency is Yen (En in Japanese) yesterday, and right now Isadon talked about circles (En in Japanese). How interesting!
Money is the blood of society. It circulates the world, connects every corner, and returns again. Everything is a rotational motion. It is woven by connections. It is the same structure with the blood that which circulates our body and plays a role.
Our lives exists by a rotational motion. Without it, the time line disappears and so do phenomena.
It is called death. Lifetime is like a motion of flywheels. When a rotation begins, connections emerge, a form of one life is established, and an original cycle of the life begins. When the rotation ends, it is the end of a lifetime. The stronger and broader the rotation becomes, the longer the cycle becomes. The weaker the rotation becomes, the shorter the cycle becomes. It interlocks with other rotational motions and weaves a fabric of a majestic life, which is the real figure of this world.
Everything is a Frame which Weaves from the Beginning to the End of the Universe
I wonder why I exist. The form of me exists by being woven by connections, but why do connections emerge? At least, I do not feel I make myself exist intentionally, but isn’t my intention functioning after all because connections emerge?
Connections are generated when an intention functions. An intention (Ito in Japanese) is a thread (Ito in Japanese). An invisible thread of connections connect separate things. As a result, a rotational motion emerges and phenomena occur.
Humans are a self who they see and who they do not. When they reach a certain stage, they discover a new self who they did not recognize in the past. However, the new self has been here since before we came into consciousness.
We have existed even since before we were born. What we created in the past becomes causes and as a result, and phenomena emerge. It is called fate. This world exists under the law of cause and effect where phenomena occur appropriate to fate. The present exists as a story which has continued from a distant past. Connections which weave even this moment lead to the next event, and a new connection emerges from there again. In this manner, a story continues to unfurl. The beginning of fate is that of the universe. Also, the end of fate is that of the universe. So, it continues forever. Every existence is just a frame which connects from the beginning of the universe to the end of the universe.
The end of the universe means returning to the potential world. It is an empty state from the universal structure. Emptiness is eternity, which we, existences in the phenomenal world, cannot interpret. Therefore, we can say it is just a moment.
The universe endlessly repeats the process of birth, maintenance, destruction and emptiness. The last frame overlaps with the next new frame. It is empty and eternal. However, those who live in the phenomenal world like us tend to consider the end just as the beginning. The Lotus Sutra has a word of “Sanzen-Jindengo (three thousand is like a piece of dust in the infinite timeframe). It is said the universe repeats the process from birth to disappearance three thousand times. Three thousand times means infinite repetition beyond human thoughts.
When we come to think of things in such a scale, we are not trapped in what is close to us. However, it does not mean it is all right to neglect what is in front of us and our daily life such as waking up in the morning, having meals, and working. All phenomena exist appropriately to our level of consciousness, so we should not consider them as nothing. At the same time, it is just a momentary event from the majestic universal drama, so we do not have to be trapped in it. It is important to stay with it as information without being trapped in it.
The Biggest Theme for Humans
People cut away a part of a story, and consider it as themselves. However, everything is connected and the current self exists. If we cut away a part and try to perceive ourselves, we cannot reach the truth. Fate is woven through each moment, and phenomena change one after another. When the past is driven into distant memories, people tend to think only what they remember now is themselves. However, the result of fate which we have woven including far memories is us. That is, we are the universe itself.
When we analyze the meanings of fate (INNEN in Japanese) from the viewpoint of Katakamuna, I means a position, N strengthens the meaning of the previous sound (I), and NE means roots. Therefore, when a position of something is specified, it expands in an invisible place as roots, which is fate.
That is, fate is very deep-rooted. The result of fate from the past is manifested now. In other words, we can say that current phenomena indicate fate from the past like roots. Therefore, if we observe the current self deeply, even if we do not think of our past lives, we can see what kind of path we have taken in the past.
Even if it is the same event, we can interpret it differently due to the differences in our level of consciousness. So, our current mind weaves the future.
How high or low and broad or narrow is our consciousness? The amplitude of the space line and accuracy of the cycles change depending on awareness. How to express it is up to us. Each person has an original history. Information based on their past experiences is incorporated in the DNA by their personality and nature. The information becomes a base, which creates the future. Therefore, an intention, which weaves connections, is the universal law which is in charge of the reincarnation of life and also the exact intention of the person.
But, unless we know such a system, the intention becomes an unconscious one. Can we still call it an intention?
It is a state where an intention which has been woven unconsciously is expressed unconsciously. When we become aware of it and live, we can control our lives by ourselves. If it expands more, we can grow to the level of operating this world of a life. There is a level where people cannot control themselves and are controlled by ego. Or we can stand at the position of operating this world, so human possibility is really diverse.
In order to open a possibility, a motivation to explore it is necessary. If there is a motivation to seek it, time moves to reach there. The destination of the train of time changes by an intention. Unless an intention functions, unconscious time just passes by. It is called an unconscious intention.
For example, if people encounter an accident, many people consider themselves as a victim and blame others. However, in fact, we encounter it by fate which our previous self had established. On the other hand, it is not right to think everything is our fault.
It is an opportunity to learn the origin of things. That is why, we cannot get emotional. When we perceive things objectively without any emotion, it becomes a learning opportunity and accumulation to understand this world. We can expand our capacity by this, and live a life with a higher and broader will.
On the contrary, if we are trapped in our emotions and interpret things with a specific concept, we cannot make it a learning opportunity anymore and continue to stay in the same state. This means a decline in the world which always continues to change and transform. There are many people who do not recognize that they are emotional. They would like to judge things calmly, but in fact, they do it based on unconscious emotions, however they are not aware of this. In the modern era, such people’s emotions pile up, and emotions clash with each other on the national level, which becomes a major cause of conflict.
It is the biggest theme for humans to see themselves calmly and know who they are. We can limit our possibility, depending on our state, or expand it infinitely.
Majestic Habits and Nature
Connections continue by circles. The motion of the time line looks like a straight line. However, if we look at it without cutting away a part, everything rotates. The rotational motion works with the motion of the time line, it becomes a spiral. The planets of the solar system spiral and orbit the sun. The sun also spirals, orbits the galaxy and moves in the universe. Such a motion is the structure of this world itself.
Each planet of the solar system has an individuality. Mercury, the closest planet which indicates communication and rapidness orbits the sun rapidly. Venus, a planet which expresses love and beauty describes a steady and beautiful orbit of an exact circle. Earth describes a subtle ellipse and rotates with a groove. Mars which indicates passion and actions describe an extreme ellipse and rotates dynamically. Each orbit and speed is different, and each motion is a habit and nature in itself. Each planet orbits the sun as it is, works with each other, moves together, and the whole creates a harmony.
Each star marks a cycle at a certain rhythm with their habits and nature, and moves in the same pattern. Because its individuality exists as promised, it can work with each other. The time line of the solar system is the sun, but the sun also moves with habits and a nature as promised.
I see! Habits and nature are order. If there is no habit at all and everything is completely free, a cycle would not be generated. So then nothing can take a stance and work with each other.
That is right. Habits and nature are order. In terms of the Konohana Family community, I am the time line and everyone else orbits me with their habits and nature. When I show them a direction to go, some follow it and some move farther away from it. When I think they might not come back, they take a detour and come back because they are members after all.
In other words, habits and nature are individualities. What kind of characteristics do we have, and what kind of motion do we have in the whole? If we unconsciously take actions with habits and nature, we might disturb the entire harmony. However, if we perceive it objectively, and utilize it as individuality, we can expand diversity and open the whole possibility. Therefore, it is not to remove habits and nature, but to utilize them effectively. Since there are habits and nature, motions are generated in this world and phenomena occur. Humans, planets, and galaxies have habits and a nature. The ultimate and majestic habits and nature is the real figure of God.
Exactly! God has habits and a nature, so there is order in the world! The earth and the sun has an order and spiral, so morning and night come every day, four seasons are generated, and our life activities become possible. If there is no order and everyone moves separately, there would be no day or no season. So, we would not know when to sow seeds to raise crops. First of all, lives themselves cannot be born. Since there are habits and nature, a cycle is generated and we can live.
It is the promise of life. Everything exists in a rule of God’s habits and nature.
Each star is really unique. When I look at it individually, it is one-sided. For example, Jupiter plays a role of “expansion” and “development” and Saturn plays a role of “control” and “elimination.” A community cannot exist only with expansion or elimination. When what cannot exist alone gathers, expresses each individuality, and creates a network, the whole can keep balance. Each individual is unique and one-sided, and at the same time, the whole is in harmony. It is the universal law.
The awakening of common people is like this. According to the ancient Chinese calendar, the 21st century is considered as “the era of awakening for common people.” In the past, each ideology and religion defined values such as abundance and excellence, and everyone sought the same ideal uniformly. However, the real figure of the universe is not like that. As a matter of fact, YOU are extremely unique and original. Nobody else is like you. If people are not aware of this, individualities might be just a cause of disharmony. However, if you understand it fully, and contribute to society by playing your original role, you will be utilized and people will be happy that you are here. It is the era for common people to create such a harmony. If everyone is unique and is utilized fully, instead of making everyone the same with uniform values, everyone becomes essential. It is a very abundant world.
Ordinary “Universal Critic”
When I look at you, I think you are having fun. When you do something, you do not do it by yourself, do you? For example, when you make a presentation, you work with Mika-chan. When you make a demon mask, you work with Ryochin. When you make Konohana microorganisms, you work with Hiromi-chan. In this way, you do things through partnership with various people and teams including outsiders, depending on the situation. If we work with such unique people, a different world is created in each situation. We can do what we cannot do alone. I think it is the structure of this world itself.
It is very interesting and joyful. Not everything is given to me. Intuition and wisdom comes up to me once in a while, but if I try to do everything alone, it would be impossible. For example, when making a demon mask, I have a kind of sense, but there is another person who creates it. I am involved in various things and offer something. I feel I do everything, but as a matter of fact, I cannot do anything by myself. When various people are involved, maximizing their individuality, we can achieve what ordinary people cannot do. I think the era will begin when individuals utilize their advantages in the future.
I think it will be possible anywhere. Right now, our consciousness is trapped in the frame of ourselves, so each individual works separately. However, if our consciousness is freed, it will occur everywhere.
Those who want to be self-contained tend to hold what they do by themselves. It seems like I am swimming on the surface. I am involved in various things, and there is nothing I am doing by myself. It is one of the individualities.
When you have worries, you are worried about other people.
When I think what to do, it is all about other people. I perceive my personality, so I do not get emotional about myself. I can say it is a kind of destiny. When I say it is a destiny, it seems to be fixed. However, it is not fixed at all. If I have to choose a word, I am like a “universal critic.”
It is also an individuality.
However, the content itself which I talk about is not unique. What I talk about is the law of this world, so it is not unique at all. It is just an ordinary thing. It is difficult for most people to get out of their ego and see the world objectively, so I might look unique. But, once people stand at that position, they will understand that I just talk about extremely ordinary matters.
All lives spiral in a certain cycle. Our daily life, in which time moves from yesterday to tomorrow, is a spiral structure. Naturally stars move in this way, so we all exist under such a system. If people cut away a part, have the filter of an ego, say “I do not understand it” and deny it, and do not take in new information, they reach a conclusion that they cannot understand it. However, if we accept it as information with a flexible attitude, and think logically, we can understand it easily.
We are given life in such a system every day. When I listen to the structure of the world this way, I get moved again, feeling “It is awesome!” But, I cannot see such a thing in my daily life and live. That is why, I get surprised this much now.
This means that your view is so narrow. You only see what is around you.
A long time ago, when there was no clock and calendars, people saw planetary motion, and knew the transition of seasons. They applied it to hunting and farming, so they could survive. The planetary motion was the only clue that taught them the transition of the world. People could connect their lives by putting their consciousness toward it. Living was directly connected with planetary motion for them.
A long time ago, people talked with the divine and lived with the universe. They sensed the air of each moment, felt the moisture, sensed natural disasters and the threat of beasts with intuition, and escaped from it. This means that they had such a sharp intuition.
Intuition is to sense the planetary motion of the “divine” and feel the crisis of a moment, which is a “point.” (Both divine and points are pronounced as Ten in Japanese.) Those who were able to sustain their lives by that connected DNA continued into the future. Their descendants are us. That is, we are like a legacy which was generated in an extension of the DNA of intuition to sense the divine and points of time.
However, modern people have forgotten that completely, have drowned into material desires, and their intuition to sense what is really necessary has been paralyzed. Therefore, a huge confusion has occurred in the lives and society of the modern era.
A Point (Ten in Japanese) is the Divine (Ten in Japanese)
Time flows continuously. The future comes closer to us with each moment, and the past becomes farther away. It is a rotational motion, so time makes a circuit and comes back around. However, even if it is a cycle of one year or that of one lifetime, it does not return to the same point A, but reaches point A’ which has evolved for one cycle.
When a rotation stops and the time line disappears, life marks an end. But the elements that consisted of that life enter each subtle cycle. When the cycle ends as a human, the body returns to a cycle of atoms, and is incorporated into the cycle of the next role. Death belongs to the same cycle of life. It is a chain of life and death where a part of the body returns to nature every day, and we take in food which becomes a part of the body. It is also a rotational motion and a spiral motion.
When we talked about “the project of departure” at the community meeting the other day, Mika-chan described a diagram of the system of life. In the diagram, the time line was described in a straight line, and looked to flow in the same way. But, she said that the parts except for “life” which are periods of “death” are “points.”
There are two kinds of death. One is death in the phenomenal world (world with existence). It comes and goes between the visible and invisible world. In this case, although the body is destroyed, the soul is not dismantled. The other one is death in the potential world (world with no-existence). In this case, the soul is dismantled, returns to the potential world which is the source of everything, and becomes empty. It is a world where we reach as a result of enlightenment.
The visible world is supported by the invisible world behind it. Something like minds, personalities, and the nature of substances are invisible. The phenomenal world exists under “Taiko-Hassei” between the visible and invisible world. Death in the phenomenal world is to go from a visible place to an invisible place. When a certain period passes, the soul returns to the visible place again. It is life and death in the phenomenal world that repeats a cycle of the visible and invisible world. And a steady time continues to flow there.
On the contrary, death in the potential world is disappearance. Disappearance is a state where ego disappears, so there is no interpretation. Time also disappears. Therefore, we can say it is a point. Or, it means that we enter a cycle in which the living cannot interpret, so it is extremely long. It is existence and non-existence. It is long and short. Even if we try to perceive it with the thinking of the phenomenal world, we cannot understand it at all. A point (Ten in Japanese) is the divine (Ten in Japanese), which is the universe.
The phenomenal world (world with existence) exists under a dualistic structure with the visible and invisible world. If the potential world (world with non-existence) which is the source of everything is included, the world exists under a triplex structure. As the visible and invisible world exists under “Taiko-Hassei,” the phenomenal and potential world exist under it as well.
The cycle of life and death in the phenomenal world is a double helix where something visible intersects with something invisible. Moreover, if the cycle of life and death in the potential world is added, it becomes a triplex helix where the soul goes even to the potential world. There are helixes only in the phenomenal world and helixes in the entire world including the potential world, too. And the time line penetrates at its core.
Time continues to flow steadily in the cycle of the phenomenal world. However, in the cycle of the entire world including the potential world, time flows and stops repeatedly. In this manner, the universe repeats emergence and disappearance. When this cycle is expressed in a diagram, it looks like a lotus root. It is called the “lotus universe.”
Both “time (TOKI in Japanese)” and “space (TOKORO in Japanese) begins with TO in Japanese. TO means integration. Time (TOKI) means that integration (TO) emerges (KI). KO in TOKORO (place) means to roll over and RO means a hollow state. That is, an integrated energy of time flows and something rolls over from there. Then, the place is generated and phenomena occur. However, in fact, phenomena are fleeting things with a hollow state.
When the space line is generated, phenomena occur. We can see them, so they look steady. However, visible forms continue to change, so in fact, we cannot capture them. We cannot capture things in the visible world. Therefore, the phenomenal world is called “the impermanence of all things.”
We gain a form and appear into the visible world, but it is temporary. We can say that the invisible world behind the forms is our real figure. Either world flows with time and continues to change.
The place (TOKORO) is in a hollow state, so the time line can penetrate through it.
This world exists only when both time and space exist. Time and space exist under “Taiko-Hassei” and support each other simultaneously.
“You Got it?”
God created an interesting world.
The more we unlock it, the more we become moved with a feeling of “this law is everywhere!” Everything from the invisibly subtle microcosmic world to the giant macrocosmic world is under the same law. This means everything is given a really thorough consideration. However, the law is very simple. In this manner, a majestic world is created.
When I think of the real figure of the origin which has created this world, I get so moved by its greatness that I feel it is adorable, saying “You have done this much.” Thinking like that, God smiled and said, “You got it?”
We shared our thoughts with each other, which is great.
The reality of the universe exists there. When our human thoughts get used to the law, its reality will be unlocked. However, it is eternal and infinite. There is always an unknown future.
Now, people talk about God under the name of religions on earth. However, they see God with their emotions. Therefore, people make conflicts and wars under the name of God, and die. What narrow viewpoints do people see things with?
We cannot see the reality of God if we get emotional. Being emotional means seeing things with their own habits and natures. If so, we cannot see the reality and truth. It is important to free ourselves and sense it without any emotions, our own habits and nature. It is to be sensed, so we cannot talk with words.
That is why, we should know ourselves. Only when we know our habits and nature, and objectively know how disproportionately we see things, we will begin to know this world.
It is difficult for humans to do so. Although their habits and nature are pointed out, they cannot see their reality.
It is because people look from the inside out. They see things only through the filter of their ego. As long as we exist, we have a viewpoint to recognize, however, at the same time, we need to have a viewpoint to see ourselves from outside without the filter of our ego. This means that the distance from other people disappears. Other people’s viewpoints become our own, and our viewpoints become theirs. It is the world where I am you and you are I without any boundaries. Removing (Tori in Japanese) the gap (Sa in Japanese) between you and me leads to enlightenment (Satori in Japanese).
In order to manifest such a world, people need to gather and live in one boat. As people have survived as one life as a community during the severe era a long time ago, we will gather again, live as one life as a community and manifest the truth of this world. It is the only way for modern society to get out of confusion, where individuals get out of control and see things only from their ego. No matter how much we talk about the ideal world, if we do not do that, a new world will not emerge.
Can we reach a mental state where we can interpret this? All answers exist there.
When God smiles, you share this mind with God. Listening to it this way now, I feel his mind, too.
When I feel the existence of God, tears come out.
You are just trying to convey such a mind to everyone. You just want to feel it with everyone and understand each other with heart.
I believe in God, so I try to convey his greatness to people. However, when I say, “God exists,” people try to perceive it from their level of consciousness. Then, they do not understand what I mean anymore.
If I talk about his greatness, people try to interpret it based on their own concept. Then, his greatness cannot be conveyed again. So, if I say, “You should sense it,” people try to sense it at their level of consciousness again. After all, they do not understand what I mean.
I think it might be impossible. Those who encountered the scene like you can sense the air of the place, and get it. In order to sense it, it is necessary not only to be there but also to stay with it. However, those who keep their own concept interpret through their perspective anyways. So, we cannot understand each other. Nothing can be done about it.
In fact, you are just trying to understand each other. However, everyone sees things through their ego, so they cannot get it.
God is the real figure of this world, so we can get access to it from anywhere. It is different from what religions have piled up. Its purpose is different. Originally, religions are the path to understand the real figure of this world, instead of gratifying wishes and saving people.
When it is expressed with words, the nature is already slightly different. When we talk about understanding the real figure of this world, humans might try to learn it as knowledge. But, it is not true. We are the world itself, and can understand our unity and exist.
When we reach there, events on earth are not important anymore. There are infinite perspectives, and we can reach the mind of “Everything is fine” from anywhere. In a sense, it is a state of “non-existence.” However, phenomena “do exist.” The entity exists.
For example, if everyone’s mind becomes like “Everything is fine” at the community meeting, it would be proof that the whole is coming to a harmonious point.
If such a place is established here, visitors will wonder with a mysterious sense, “Well…Where is this?”
Ego is not for Gratifying but for Transcending
～From Humans To HITO～
Now, we are preparing for Lotus Land which will open on March 21st next year. Y-san, who visited here yesterday for the first time in months, said, “I feel the Konohana Family has changed enormously.” A part of Lotus Land will be a café, and I thought we need to indicate calories for meals. Then, she said she had experiences as a national registered dietician, and wants to be involved in its management. She sought her dream, went to Kyushu, did her best, but things did not go so well. After that, she came to consult with me, and encountered the project of Lotus Land.
As a matter of fact, we did not begin this project intentionally. We have received serendipitous encounters, and proceeded according to the flow. As a result, encounters with necessary things and people like her have come at a necessary timing. She said that she has thought hard by herself and made plans, but nothings has been successful. When I told her about how the plan of Lotus Land proceeded, she asked me, “Why is it going so well?” Then, I answered, “It is because we have woven connections.”
When we think and plan things with our brain, we ignore connections and do things with ego and desires. So, things do not go well. There is a cycle of the place with time as its axis in this world. When we deviate from the cycle, we deviate from the nature of this world. If we board on this cycle, things (the time line) flow naturally and things (the place line) are achieved automatically. In order to do so, unless we reach a certain state, we cannot encounter such a world.
Although something reaches a dead end, there is the next world ahead of the dead end. Even if A reaches a dead end, there is A’. In this manner, we can make a breakthrough. Although it looks the same, A’ has advanced for one cycle and it is different from the previous A. It is essential to transcend our ego and become the spirit of “receiving answers.” Ego is not to be gratified, but to be controlled and transcended. Only when people reach such a spiritual state, what to do in accordance with the flow will come up automatically.
Humans try to utilize themselves based on ego, and plot various things. However, when we transcend ego and see this world, we can see that the world continues to give us order. The world always gives us the next A’. Although we understand it or not, we are given life in such a structure. And today is always a new world which is different from yesterday.
When humans understand this structure, they will become an existence to understand from the beginning to the end of the universal structure which proceeds in “HI HU MI YO I MU NA YA KO TO (meaning one to ten in Japanese), which is “HITO.”
The macro-cosmos is a giant life. Everything from the galaxy, the solar system, the earth, the global ecosystem, nations, human bodies to each cell has a fractal configuration. The extremely giant macro-cosmos and the invisible micro-cosmos move under the same structure. This world is a vortex of fractal figures.
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.
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.
