“The 21st Century View of Life and Death” Part 4

The System of Sex
The beginning of everything

 In “The 21st Century View of Life and Death” Part 1, 2 and 3, the system of the world has been analyzed, in which all lives infinitely repeat life and death in the flow of eternal time. Moreover, we explained why we are born in this world. All lives are created by the principle of sex. Sex, which is the source of our life, will be revealed in the final issue of “The 21st Century View of Life and Death”!

 The Fundamental Principle of Life which Connects Eras

The world where we live has been created by the principle of “TAIKO-HASSEI” that two opposite qualities of yin and yang make each other exist. This principle of universal creation is called sex. The Chinese character of sex () is written as the mind () lives (). The mind () indicates that the divine pillar comes down to the center, and two opposite energies of yin and yang are born at right and left. It is the divine (universal) mind. The pillar which stands in the center is the divine law which makes this world operate. The system, in which phenomena occur by TAIKO-HASSEI of yin and yang around the divine pillar, is called the divine mind.

 In the first place, why do we live? It is because this world, which creates us and makes us exist, exists first.

Many of modern people think they live by themselves. However, the truth is that we exist because this world exists. Every single life, substance, phenomenon which exists in this world and we human beings are all born under the divine law which creates this world, are maintained by that law, and the world operates. The original figure of life, in which we follow that system and live with it as our pillar, is shown in the Chinese character of sex.

However, modern people greatly misunderstand the meaning of sex. While trying to gratify desires of egos which gush out from inside, instead of following the system of this world which supports our life, people have forgotten the existence of the law and have made sex as the means to get rid of stress and gain pleasure. In this manner, a guilty consciousness is generated, and sex has become secrets and has been distorted. In the end, it has become something far from truth as prostitution and rapes have occurred. Because the mechanism of creation which is sex gets out or order, everything which is created from there in this world also gets out of order. This is at the base of the modern society. Unless we change its way, it would be impossible for the world to become healthy.

We are born into this world through sex, and connect lives toward the next era through sex. This is the fundamental principle of life which is essential in order to create us as life, maintain this world and connect eras. It is also sacred. Our origin is in sex. Originally, instinctive desires which are equipped with human beings exist to enhance human dignity and contribute to the life world.

Then, let’s look at the system of sex which is our origin!

 

Everything from small life to big one exists by the same principle of sex in this world.

The System of Sex

First of all, a pillar comes down from the divine to the earth. In “The 21st Century View of Life and Death” Part1 and 2, we explained that there is the potential world (the world of non-existence) which is the source of all lives behind the phenomenal world (the world of existence) where we live, and that our life is supported in the system of universal circulation in which pure life energy is always given from the potential world. The potential world is “KAMU (God).” That is, it is the world where modern people who only recognize visible matters cannot see or feel with their sensitivity. The pillar which comes down from the divine works so that this pure vibrancy of KAMU reflects (UTSUSU in Japanese) in the phenomenal world. This is called “KAMU-UTSUSHI (the principle which becomes the origin of creating phenomena).” The profound divine law which is the source of our life comes down to the phenomenal world through this. This vertically penetrating force is the function of masculinity. 

On the other hand, “AMA-UTSUSHI (the principle which causes phenomena)” is the function to receive the divine pillar and seeds of life from it, horizontally rotate with the vertical divine pillar as an axis, and manifest the invisible divine law. This horizontally rotational force is the function of femininity. The masculinity which brings down the invisible law is yin, and the femininity which manifests that law as phenomena is yang. Both are equal, and none of them can exist alone. The universe creates phenomena as life due to this TAIKO-HASSEI. The vertical yin pillar is called the time axis, and the horizontal yang pillar is called the place axis. When the time and place meets perfectly, life will be born. 

The Birth of Stars

Let’s look at the system of the earth based on this structure. First of all, a vertical pillar emerges and penetrates from north to south. A horizontal rotation occurs with the vertical pillar as an axis. The vertical axis is yin, and the horizontal rotation is yang. Looking at the yang rotation from north, it is counter-clockwise. Looking from south, it is clockwise. Counter-clockwise rotation is the yang function of entropy. Clockwise rotation is the yin function of anti-entropy which suppresses it. That is, the function of yin (clockwise rotation) and yang (counter-clockwise rotation) exist in the horizontal yang rotation at the same time. The strongest energy emerges at the equator where both forces compete against each other. Then, phenomena occur and many lives are generated there. Moreover, the magnetic fields emerge with the vertical pillar as an axis, and the whole earth becomes a gigantic spherical magnet (life form).

The earth, the solar system, and galaxies are all under the same physics. Incessant sex of yin and yang occurs everywhere in the universe, and continues to create lives into the world. Our sex between men and women also exists under the same system. 

The world between the potential world and the phenomenal world is called “AMA World.” It is the world where both potential and phenomenal world overlap and cause qualitative shifts to create phenomena, and it is the womb of the universe. The vertical pillar which comes down to the AMA World indicates male genitalia in the sex. The horizontal rotation which emerges around it indicates female genitalia. When a man and woman have sex, the male and female genitalia join and the man brings down the sacred divine pillar into the woman. She receives a seed of life from the pillar and nurtures the life which traces the 3.8 billion history of life evolution on earth. Ultimately, she plays a holy role of sending it out as a human being into this world. In this manner, the sex which we human beings operate is very sacred as it exists under the same system with the universal structure.  

The Sun and the Moon

The divine seed which comes down when a man erects a pillar is based on light. The beginning of all lives is light. The light which nurtures our existence which lives on earth is radiated from the sun. The sun rises every day, brings days and nights to earth, and becomes the base of the life rhythm which is time. It is sperms, male physiology that is created by the cycle of the sun (yang) every day. On the other hand, female physiology is based on the cycle of the moon (yin). Eggs in a woman’s body are created by the cycle of the moon which repeats waxing and waning.  

It is not only the power of the sun that has created lives on earth. The sun brings light to earth, and causes natural circulation of earth, water, fire, wind and air. The moon, which was born when a part of the earth became separated, kept a perfect distance from the earth, caused ebbs and flows of tides by that gravitation, stirred seas, and created various lives along with the sun. Dynamic life activities were born on this planet not only by the sun, but also by the moon which becomes a set with it and stays along with the earth. The earth has become a beautiful planet full of lives which is rarely seen even in the universe due to two functions of yin and yang. 

The World which has been Deviated from the Law

Then, have you recognized that yin and yang of masculinity and femininity has been reversed? In the world which becomes the source of life emergence, the yin pillar which exists in the back is masculinity, and the yang rotation which manifests it is the function of femininity. However, when the energy of the life source goes through the AMA World, causes a qualitative shift, and emerges as life into the phenomenal world, the femininity becomes yin and masculinity becomes yang (a reversal phenomenon). Both are in an equal relation which expresses TAIKO-HASSEI (the principle that when two opposite qualities of yin and yang face each other, they create a new life). 

However, currently relationships between men and women have been greatly distorted in the human society. Some time ago, men brought down the profound divine law which is the universal wisdom by erecting a pillar, and integrated groups. Women had a perspective to choose a man who had right wisdom, and played a role of receiving that seed and creating the world which is appropriate to that law on earth. Due to this TAIKO-HASSEI of yin and yang, a world with order which the divine law governs was expressed on earth. However, as eras went by, men came to dominate the world not by the universal wisdom, but by the power. In that background, women have lost the perspective to choose men who have right wisdom.

As we say “yin and yang,” yin comes first in this world, and yang emerges as forms based on it. Yin in the phenomenal world is women. Therefore, women are supposed to have wisdom to choose the right men first. Then, when men try to improve and enhance themselves so that they can be chosen by women, both existences become equal. However, in the flow of the era when only visible matters have become important, people have lost the power to sense something important behind visible matters. In addition, women have come to flatter those who have powers, rather than trying to see through the men’s nature. It is money and authority in the modern era. Men have forgotten their original role, and made efforts to gain those things, rather than the universal wisdom. In this manner, the world has been greatly deviated from the divine law, and the material world dominated by money and authority has emerged. Furthermore, we have made sex, which is the source of our life, the tool to gratify our desires, dominate with power, and flatter.  

Return to the Origin

True gender equality is not just about equality in the system. It means that both men and women become aware of the meaning of their existences, and are in the right yin and yang relationship based on the divine law.  

For example, please imagine that you think you can work fully by yourself and live for the whole life. However, originally, we are imperfect by ourselves. Long ago, this world was perfect oneness. Then, it exploded and space was born from there. It was divided toward diversity, and the current life world was born. Then, those who became separated began to express TAIKO-HASSEI with each other. Because we were separated from the perfect origin, we are one-sided by ourselves. We try to attract each other and join due to the sense of shortage. That is, we try to return to the original oneness.

Returning to the origin means the original wisdom which is our source comes out. We became divided into individuals, gained egos, and as a result, fell into the misunderstanding that we live alone in this world. However, when people become attracted with each other again by the divine connection, encounter each other, join and sharpen their originally equipped sense of life, they will resonate with beautiful vibrancy of the universal source which is also our origin. In this way, it is the origin of sex to resonate with the great universe.

When people understand this system and have sex (KAMU-UTSUSHI/ AMA-UTSUSHI) with high consciousness which resonates with the universe, such an act has a power to correct the order of the world. Then, it sends further advanced excellent souls which will create the future out as human beings into this world. Essentially, instinctive desires are equipped with us, not to gratify our desires based on egos, but to sense the vibrancy of life source, enhance ourselves, and contribute to this world which created us.  

The Divine Mind

As stars in the universe harmonize under the law of oneness and continue to travel in the universe without stagnation as if it is promised, we human beings were also created by that law and our life is supported under it. Therefore, it is essentially natural to live according to the law. It is to contribute to this world and live in the flow of the beautiful world. Moreover, our own life also becomes very smooth and abundant.

Currently, many stars have reached the turning points of each cycle in such a flow. This indicates that the great transition period of the era has arrived on earth. Our body began from the sex between a man and a woman, which is our father and mother. Such a consciousness of sex was the 20th century type. We came down under that 20th century values.

However, now that the era has entered the 21st century, a new millennium from the 21st century to the 30th century has begun. It means that the era of new values which are different from conventional ones has begun. The world has shifted from the era when people lost the divine pillar and became greatly distorted, to the one when we erect the true pillar, and masculinity and femininity play a sacred role as an equal existence under that pillar. The era has begun when the divine mind lives on earth and the true sex is expressed.  

Now, you have encountered this message as that pioneer. This means that the future earth will begin with YOUR awakening. 

 

Sex between Men and Women is not only Sex

Partnerships with All Things

Sex does not indicate only that between men and women. We have been separated from the perfect oneness of our origin, gained each deviation, and spread to this world. Although we were imperfect, we were given positions appropriate to each individual, have played original roles with our deviation as individuality, and have created the world full of diversity. We are imperfect as one piece, so opposite existences attract each other and express TAIKO-HASSEI. The divine pillar surely exists in the center of TAIKO-HASSEI. That is, all existences in this world is sacred because they were born from the divine mind. Although their appearances and functions are different, everyone is essentially equal. The TAIKO-HASSEI of such diverse existences links with each other infinitely, changes dynamically, and connects the life world where we live toward the future. This wide variety of partnerships, which become the source to maintain the world, are indispensable and sacred. 

All things exist under the system of partnerships. Me and the universe, me and the sun, me and the moon, me and the earth, me and the soil, me and air, me and water, me and life, me and the heart, me and hands, me and legs, me and animals, me and plants, me and microorganisms, me and someone, and me and everything. We always live along with all existences. There are far and close, and shallow and deep relationships, but each one of them is essentially important. Now, we exist here thanks to these partnerships. Nothing exists alone in this world because the nature of the universe is in connection. Connection means a goodwill. We are connected with all things by the deep bond based on the goodwill, and our life is supported in such a connection.

When we perceive the system of this world in this manner, it will be seen that loneliness does not exist in the world. Currently, many people have lost the bond which connects themselves with the world. In the flow of the era when only visible matters have become important, people cannot see that their lives are supported by the partnerships with many existences, any longer. They have misunderstood that “I live by my own power,” and have come to seek their own happiness. As a result, they have brought discrepancy to society, generated the concept of superiority and inferiority, and even damaged the global ecosystem which has nurtured our life. Although the global ecosystem still continues to nurture our life, such a bond has been severed unilaterally from the human side. In this manner, many people have lost the bond and live a lonely life in the modern era.

However, the truth is that we are given positions and roles which are appropriate to each individual through the system which manifests the divine mind, which is sex of the universal fundamental principle. Then, we were created into this world along with many other existences. The world operates because such numerous partnerships link with each other. Ultimately, all existences are in the TAIKO-HASSEI relation with the divine. When we have realized that, loneliness does not exist in the world anymore. All relationships around you offer opportunities of deep learning toward the profound universal truth. You might consider this is good and that is bad; however, everything is generated from a goodwill to make you become aware of the truth through partnerships with you. The divine pillar surely exists in the center of such TAIKO-HASSI.

If you understand this and sense the beautiful vibrancy of the universal source which flows behind all phenomena, everyone can fully exert their individuality through their appropriate roles, and contribute to the health of the world. Existing in harmony of such high consciousness itself is sex, which is living out the divine mind. The awakening of KAMU-UTSUSHI and AMA-UTSUSHI which manifests the invisible divine law as phenomena exists not only in the sex between men and women, but everywhere in the world where we live.         

Sex is the fundamental principle of the universe which generates something new through TAIKO-HASSEI by opposite qualities, and creates the unknown future. We sincerely hope that many people will become aware of this truth and the world will be surrounded with the beautiful vibrancy.

“The 21st Century View of Life and Death” Part 3 ~ What is Beauty?

In “The 21st Century View of Life and Death” Part 1 and 2, it was explained that humans were born with a body on earth to purify their souls, and we continue the journey of an eternal evolution, continuing to reincarnate in the multi-structural universe. Then, what is “Beauty” in the first place? In Part 3, we are going to analyze “Beauty” which modern people misunderstand greatly, and deepen the reason why we live in this world.

A Journey to an Unknown  World

We live out the universe. There are numerous stars in the universe, and none of them stays in the same place. As the earth orbits the sun, the sun orbits the center of the Milky Way galaxy, and the Milky Way galaxy also orbits an even bigger group of galaxies, all stars infinitely link with each other, become one majestic vortex, and continue to travel together toward an unknown place in the infinite universe.

There is an absolute order, which is the existence of time. Everything in this world boards on a vehicle of time which never stops, and proceeds toward the same direction. Because the earth gets on the flow and runs through the universe together, morning and night comes to earth every day, four seasons are born, and our lives are nurtured.

In fact, there are a wide variety of living beings which are estimated at 870 million kinds on earth. As all stars in the universe are connected with each other under the absolute order, living beings on earth also play original roles, brilliantly link with each other, and establish a world with one connection of life, which is the global ecosystem. It is a very beautiful world. In the flow of time, every single existence is given a life, and repeats birth, life and death. The whole always gains a new life energy, and continues to evolve as one life without staying still.

In such an incessant flow, there is only one existence which goes against it – humans. Other living beings exist as time flows, and fulfill their life according to the system of nature. However, humans who gained ego came to have the mind to hope to “maintain” a specific condition. Such a mind has generated stagnation in the flow, and has brought various issues.

However, as nobody can stop the earth from rotating and revolving, no matter how much we want to maintain a particular flow of time, it is impossible. Looking back on the history of the earth, it has been a succession of changes. Great environmental changes which have knocked the bottom out of the conventional way of being have occurred on countless occasions from the emergence of life to the birth of humanity. Life has repeated mass extinctions each time, and has evolved toward a new kind of existence which adjusts to the next environment. It is a journey to an unknown world which never stays still. It is us, the current humans that have become as a result.

Now, the world has begun to cause various phenomena which break the mold. It means that we are in a great transition period.

We came down as humans on earth in such an era. If “life exists to purify the soul,” what would it be like to become beautiful?

 


*As for the history of the life evolution on earth, please refer to the Konohana Family Newsletter Vol.3 “Eraism has Begun.”


This World is  Beautiful

Pollution is to Go against the Flow of the World and to Deviate from the Nature of the Universe
The Nature of the Universe is to Connect

Each one of us has a different individuality, and lives an original life every day. It seems to have nothing to do with the universe, but as a matter of fact, we are in the system of the universe.

It is the Milky Way galaxy that expresses the system of our life in the biggest scale. The universe expands even beyond the Milky Way galaxy. However, it is a different-dimensional world which we cannot interpret with our senses, because we live within the Milky Way galaxy. Therefore, we are going to trace the structure of life with the Milky Way galaxy as the greatest influence.

Each one of the numerous stars which are scattered throughout the galaxy is very unique. Such countless unique existences mark each cycle, work together without exception, and form the one life of the galaxy. It is the solar system and the global ecosystem that condenses the system and are expressed closer to us. Moreover, it is our body that is expressed closest to us.

Our body is the collectivity of various and complicated functions which consist of tens of trillions cells. Please look at your body. From your eyes, ears, nose, mouth, arms, legs, blood vessels and nerves which are spread around the whole body, bones, muscles, organs with various functions to hair and nails, there is a multiplicity of parts in the body. In every single part, more complicated and minute functions exist, work together without exception, and form one life of you in harmony like a miracle. If they do not work together and exist separately, life would not be able to emerge as it does. That is, the nature of the universe is to connect. Connecting is possible only based on goodwill. That is, the universe is created based on goodwill.

Life is Beautiful

In such a connection of goodwill, all existences board on the common vehicle of time.

After our body becomes fertilized in the mother’s womb, it traces a 3.8 billion year history of life evolution from a small life which is just less than 1mm, going through fishes, amphibians, reptiles, to mammals. We are born in this world over 280 days. Then, our body repeats birth and death at a cellular level every day in the circulation of the five natural elements of earth, water, fire, wind and air. We grow up from a baby to a child, then to an adult. Wrinkles are engraved in the skin across the ages, and hair becomes white. When our life span ends, the body without the soul will be decomposed at the atomic level, and become components which will compose the next life. Death is a beautiful moment when we will be released from the conventional connection and return to the circulation of the ecosystem.

In this manner, individual existences continue to change along with the flow of time. The whole, which is the collectivity of individuals, repeat metabolism and always continue to be born anew. This changing figure without stagnation is the beauty of this world.

Beauty is that everything flows without stagnation, changes toward the future and evolves. It is the exact figure of the universe. The universe always moves toward an unknown place and repeatedly changes transforms and transfigures. It is because the universe is life. Life continues to change without staying still. Our body expresses such a system closest to us, and tells us what life is and what beauty is.

Let’s Move toward a New World Together

Humans are given an extremely special ability in this beautiful world. In the system in which everything becomes connected and circulates, human who gained ego became conscious of “the self” in particular. With such a high ability, they came to maintain themselves and think of changing the world for their convenience, rather than changing themselves according to the flow of the world. Such a mind has created stagnation in the flow in which everything continues to change, and has generated various contradictions such as lies, tactics, conflicts and isolation. They are opposite from the nature of the universe in which unity is the base.

Everyone seeks a beautiful world; however, the modern society has become a world that prioritizes human convenience and cannot be really called beautiful. Cities which look developed beautifully have generated a vast amount of garbage behind them. Self-centered minds have created conflicts, loneliness, diseases and crimes; which have become rampant behind people who dress beautifully. If we go against the flow and try to control the world by force as we want, it needs a lot of energy. People have collected more and more, hurt each other, scrambled to fight, generated much waste, and ruined the earth and even their own lives. The entire world is full of problems, but it is natural for people to have many issues, and they cannot even recognize that they themselves have created the problems.

Many people look at a visible form and say “It is beautiful.” However, the true beauty is in “the mind” behind it. No matter how hard we make the form look beautiful, if the mind behind it is polluted, such a mind will surely become a problem and come back to us. However, if we do not recognize that our mind is polluted, we tend to blame others and the society for the problem we encounter. On the contrary, we pretend that nothing happens.

If the flow in which everything changes without stagnation is the beauty of this world, pollution is the function to stagnate the flow and deviate from the nature of the universe. Modern people have generated this many of problems, but they have avoided seeing the pollution of their mind which is the cause of the problems. However, the basis of the universe is goodwill. If our mind ignores the system of the body, goes out of control, and we drink and eat too much, our body becomes sick and tells us that. In this manner, if people’s minds become separated and they live selfishly, the world causes mega disasters, tells us that we cannot live alone, and promotes us to connect with each other. Connecting means weaving life.

If we deviate from this great flow and bring out contradictions to the world, the universe always guides us to return to the flow again. As long as you go against the flow and try to stay at the same place, the universe will continue to give you problems. It is because the universe guides you, saying “Let’s move toward a new world together.”

In the World like a Miracle

Living a life is not keeping the same self and seeing new scenery, but changing and renewing ourselves through encountering new scenery each moment. When people encounter something new, they tend to look at it based on their conventional path. If it is beyond their understanding, they tend to resist it. They try to protect their current self, and set the world within a range which they can accept. However, when we live in this world, originally, we do not stand at such a position.

The earth is a planet full of lives, which is very rare even in the universe. There is a world like a miracle which nurtures a wide variety of lives. The earth orbits the sun, and the moon orbits the earth. The moon and the sun play a role of yin and yang in a miraculous position from the earth, and nurture living beings on earth. Light and heat which arrive from the sun create the circulation of earth, water, wind and air. The gravitation of the moon causes the rise and fall of the ocean, and circulation of the water. Comparing the earth to the size of an egg, the thickness of the atmosphere is said to be just an egg shell. In such an atmosphere, life breathes. At the same time, the magnetic field of the earth protects the life from harmful solar flares, and moreover, the solar magnetic field protects it from harmful cosmic rays. Because the planets in the solar system mark the accurate cycles around the sun, morning and night repeatedly come to earth, and so do four seasons. The relationship of the solar system exists in a network of harmony which is created by numerous stars in the galaxy. If just one thing becomes out of order, life will not be able to exist on earth as it does. Only when relationships based on such a miraculous balance link with each other, the world where we live can exist. There is nothing which is created by humans.

Many modern people think that they live in this world with their own power. However, the truth is that our life is supported by a vast universal system which is far beyond our understanding. When you let go of the small constraint of the self and understand the universal system which continues to support your life even in this moment, a beautiful world will be revived in you. Then, the universal will becomes your own.

A Story which Continues Forever

Things are supposed to go forward only based on facts in the universe. When humans become one with the universe and express their pure will without lies or tactics on earth, things will become phenomena surprisingly smoothly. Other lives fulfill their life according to the system of nature. On the contrary, humans have their own will and the ability to create this world along with the universe.

When human consciousness becomes one with the universe, a world with infinite free energy will be expressed. Stars continue to race through the vast universe and have never refueled over the 13.8 billion years from the birth of the galaxy. Originally, the universe is an existence with perfect free energy. If we follow the system, everything flows beautifully with very little energy, without any waste. It is a very calm and comfortable world.

People have gone against the flow in such a world with free energy. As a result, they have fought, become tired and become hurt. However, no matter how hard we resist it, the universe surely moves forward. For humans who have gained ego, the existence of the self is very significant. But, looking from the universe, it is just the piece of a figure which expresses the era.

No matter how hard each one of us humans lives on earth, the era surely moves forward with the will. Then, an existence which does not match with the flow will just be destroyed as the conventional history of the earth shows. The era creates a new life which replaces it. In this manner, the story of the universe continues forever.

The Fundamental Mind of the Universe

Humans who gained ego became conscious of “the self” in particular in the world where everything changes, and have brought stagnation to the flow. We can perceive it like this: if it just flows without stagnation, we cannot really know what it is. When we go against the flow and experience the stagnation, we will know what the flow is from such a comparison. Then, if we let go of the constraint which became the cause of the stagnation, and live along with the flow of the universe with the stagnation-free mind, how beautiful our life will become!

In other words, ego is individuality. Each one of us humans has an original personality. Out of a wide variety of living beings which exist on earth, humans are the only kind which is this full of diversity. Humanity longed for beauty, created scripture and models in the past, and tried to copy them uniformly, thinking “this is the right way of living.” However, it is a world which is borrowed. If the universal system is based only on phenomena, then truth is not in the world which is borrowed and written in scripture, but in your original path.

There is another important element for beautify, which is diversity. As complicated and various functions form our body, about 870 million kinds of lives weave the global ecosystem, and numerous stars create vortices and travel in the universe, a wide variety of existences become connected, resonate each vibrancy, and become like one life. That is why, an abundant, dynamic and beautiful world will be expressed like a symphony.

The world gave diversity to us humans, and entrusted it to us to express the universe on the common vehicle of time. Now, while we live this life, how much can we reach this truth? You might think that you live a healthy life, but your own daily activities continue to pollute the earth and yourself even now. If you realize this fact and wish for a truly beautiful world, please begin with you first. It is not a difficult matter at all, but we move toward our true life purpose which is sleeping in everyone. When you move toward the purpose and fulfill your life with all your might, you will know what you have brought to this world throughout your life. You will experience your own worth when you leave the body and return to the original place as the soul.

Even if we have lost the purpose, the universe always causes various phenomena and guides us toward awakening. This is the exact will which the universe shows to us —- the fundamental mind is love.

ー The story of the universe ー


 

One day, seven Korean children came to play with Jiiji, Mr. Universe who lives at the foot of Mt. Fuji. There was a girl who often lied among them. Her mother asked Jiiji to explain why we must not lie, and he talked to the Korean and Japanese children as follows:

Please Tell a Lie

First of all, do you think it is all right to lie? Or, do you think we must not lie? Jiiji thinks it is all right to lie. In order to experience what is going to happen if we lie, unless we lie, we would not understand, wouldn’t we?

Lying is saying what is different from truth. There is only one truth, but there are many lies. Therefore, when people lie, they become clever. Such people will be in trouble if the truth is revealed, so they think a lot in order to continue to hide it. However, such a way of thinking is bad. If bad thoughts increase in the head, this person becomes bad.

Children do lie. So, when you want to lie, please do so. However, there is one important thing when you lie, which is to know that “I am lying now.” A lie is different from truth, so when you lie, you will be surely in trouble later. Then, if you know you have lied, you will be able to realize “Oh, I have lied, so things have become like this.” If so, it will become an opportunity to quit lying.

If people do not understand that they have lied, when a problem occurs, they tend to blame others, instead of considering that they were the cause. Such people are real troublemakers. Lying in childhood does not make a child a liar, but it will allow them to learn what is going to happen if they lie. However, if they do not understand that they have lied, they cannot learn from lying. They become genuine liars who lie without realizing that they lie. Jiiji has met many adults like that. Adults tell children not to lie. However, in fact, adults lie more than children do. That is, humans lie.

When I grow crops in the field, I encounter various things. First of all, the sun, plants, animals, soil, rain, wind – everything is honest. If crops do not grow well, they tell us honestly where the cause is, such as an imbalance of the soil, unsuitable weather and so on. When fertilizer was applied too much, crops will become sick and tell humans that something is wrong. If humans try to learn from nature all of the time, it never lies and tells us various things honestly. Therefore, when I am in nature, gratitude comes up and my mind becomes very calm.

However, when humans come to nature, lies will emerge. It is because they tend to think of everything for their own convenience. However, it is different from truth, so it will surely lead to problems. Which means, when humans live, problems occur.

When people lie, they think there is a good thing to be had by doing so. That is why, they lie, don’t they? However, when we lie, an inconvenient thing which is opposite from what we thought will occur. Although we think we get the benefits in the midstream of life, we are supposed to receive trouble equivalent to our lies in life and die. When we end our life as a liar and are born again next, our life will begin as a liar.

If we continue to lie, our minds become bad. Then, good things will not occur in life. In this manner, this world tells us “it is not good to lie.”

Therefore, please tell many lies for learning in your childhood. And please be in trouble many times. Please realize the reason why you are in trouble is that you have lied. Then, you will become a person who does not lie without fail. And please live a beautiful life.

That is all for Jiiji’s lecture about lying today♪

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

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

Yin and Yang

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

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

The Universe Breathes

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

Figure 1: The universal system which repeats emergence and disappearance

You can download for enlarged figure from here.

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

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

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

 

A Story of Life of Universe

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

Let’s Look at the Transition of the Soul.

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

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

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

Figure 2: The system of reincarnation of souls
Numerous souls (Figure 2) repeat emergence and disappearance, and exist in the universe (Figure 1).

One Trace in a Gigantic Life

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

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

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

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

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

It is You that Judges Yourself.

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

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

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

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

Flowers of a Big Tree which Follows the Universal Consensus.

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

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

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

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

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

 

When you die,
head straight toward the light.

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

The Karma of the Earth

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

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

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

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

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

Ray of Light in Darkness

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

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

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

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

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

The Konohana Family English Newsletter Vol.7

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

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

Time is life

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

Relay of Life

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Eternal Self Exists Deep Inside of You

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

Admission into a School of the Earth

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

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

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

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

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

In order to Make the Whole Universe Beautiful

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

木之花记 -金色神明卷-

 

很久很久以前,甚至在地球及宇宙形成之前,世界只有“震动”。那是一个和谐的、没有丝毫歪曲的、既永远又完美的世界。那个世界里只有神明。

神感到了厌倦。
“我是完美的,因为完美我甚至不知道自己的存在。由于太完美,我不能知晓自己”。
神,仅仅是光的存在,但神看不到光是什么。

所以,神分离了一个完美的身体。他为了知道光明,创造了黑暗,同样,他为了知道天,创造了地。
他将不完美的世界放在一个离自己遥远的相反的地方。那时,诞生了时间和空间。从此开启了回归完整本源的时空。
就好像转动了音乐盒的旋钮,在从不完美回归完美本源的旅途中,这个世界演奏着不同的音符,谱写着非凡的乐章。这是其中一个很长很长的故事。

从此开启了回归完整本源的时空。
就好像转动了音乐盒的旋钮,在从不完美回归完美本源的旅途中,这个世界演奏着不同的音符,谱写着非凡的乐章。这是其中一个很长很长的故事。

作为宇宙的创造神,这个世界先后出现了七代神明。同时,个性丰富的八百万神众也陆续诞生了。由于这些神众任性作为,大地之神严厉地说教他们为了不扰乱世界,遵循心的法则。大地之神被称为“Kunino Tokotachino Okami(国之常立大神)”,由于他的严厉,站到了众神的对立面。

“我们不能再忍受他的严厉了。我们该怎么办?”
众神讨论之后去找了大天神。
“您可否让大地之神退位呢?”。
大神明接受了众神的提议并转告大地之神:
“很遗憾,贵尊是否可以从这个世界先回避一下?但随时间的流逝,这个世界将在某一天迎来尽头。到时,请贵尊再次降临,届时请重建这个世界。”

随后,大地之神退到东北方向(日语中称为“Ushitora(艮)”方向),从此被称为“Ushitorano konjin(艮金神)”。这个方角被视为恐怖的“鬼门”,并被封印。

从那以后又过了很久。在这段时间里,众神继续着他们任性的作为。世界处于自我为中心,弱肉强食的混乱状态。就像大神明说的那样,“这个世界将在某一天迎来尽头”,时间的尽头已经到来。

 
花祭的诞生

随着时间的流逝,到了大约700年之前。
一些熊野的苦行僧沿着天龙川河逆流而上,到达现在的爱知县奥三河地区。然后,他们开始表演城市里流行的歌舞,以此给村人传达苦行的教义。其教义就是,“世间的灾难来自于人犯下的罪恶。当人们洗净污秽,就可以重生并获得崭新的自己”。这就是现在的奥三河·东荣町传承的日本重要无形民族文化遗产“花祭”的由来。
花祭期间,人们事先会从瀑布取来神圣之清水,仪式时在祭场中央的火炉上用锅煮水,并有复数舞者围着它整夜起舞。到时,神会从水蒸气中降临到舞者身上。当这些舞者和观众一起起舞时,人们就可以跟神互动,洗净污秽,并获得新的生命力。重生的生命被称为“哈那(花)”。

花祭每年在最冷的时候举办。而且有许多鬼出现。其中的鬼王叫做“榊”(sakaki,意为一种神树),是花祭中视为最尊贵的存在,它可以唤醒沉睡在寒冬土壤中的生命力。
在现代日本社会,鬼被嫌弃为祸害。因此,日本人在节分(立春的前一天–土用之丑),会一边说:“把鬼赶出(房间)去,把福请进来”,一边撒豆子。但,其实,鬼每年都会照亮一次人内心的阴暗处。它们照射人灵魂的阴暗处,教导人净化心灵,回归本源正道。然而,对那些不愿面对自己内心阴暗的人,鬼面目可憎,被视为灾害之源。
榊鬼是很久以前被封印的艮金神的象征。

 
5月3日出生的老三

いさみ

1951年,全日本正在激情满满地开展战后重建时,一个男孩出生在岐阜県美濃市,取名为古田偉佐美 (Furuta Isami)。由于他生于5月3日,家里排行老三,因此他取名为“Isami (日语意思是五、三、三)”。后来是他创立了木之花家族,现在他被人们称为“Isadon”。

他生长在一个有名望的家族,父亲是当地一位市议员。他小时性格腼腆容易害羞,上课时为了不让老师点到他,就用书挡住脸。但是,他一旦走到教室外面,就变得非常淘气。他和小伙伴们在美濃的大自然里跑下梯田,畅快玩耍,又到河里抓鱼、爬上当地神社的屋顶再睡个觉。神社屋顶被太阳照射的非常暖和,温暖了少年刚从河里出来的身体。

在他马上要进入20岁的时候,5年前去世的祖母出现在他的头顶。他从小尊重祖先,因此他认为祖母是作为他的守护灵出现的。他在工作和人际关系上常常事半功倍。他21岁结婚,与妻子爱将(Ai-chan)一同在爱知县小牧市开了一家建築内装公司。那时,他的梦想是增加他店面的数量,挣更多的钱,开一辆好车,过上好生活。

 
佛陀出现

在他30岁年末的时候,Isadon突然发觉一直在他头上的祖母消失了。同时,出现了一个50岁左右皮肤黝黑的中年男人。

━━━━━  “他是谁呢?”  ━━━━━

他问了这个人,但他没有回答。
过了新年元旦,他参观了一个位于石川県小松市采石场的洞窟。当他看到一尊两米多高的释迦摩尼像时,有一股电流像触电似的穿过全身。

━━━━━  “这是佛陀”  ━━━━━

离开那里以后,不知为什么,佛像一直清晰地留在他的脑海里。

回到家以后,不可思议的事情发生了。

当他独自坐在房间时,金色的佛陀从他身后闪烁出现并停留在他的头顶。该如何形容呢?那就是一个神圣的存在!闪耀的金光耀眼无比,是从来没有过的。

他流着眼泪明白了神圣为何物。知道了竟有这样的世界,他禁不住流下了眼泪。“但是,为什么?为什么会到我这里?”。他泪流不止,开始思考这个问题。这种状态持续了三天。

数日以后,当他静坐冥想时,眉心突然开始疼痛。疼痛出现后的第三天,他夜里也无法入睡,只能躺在床上。如此疼痛,他再也无法忍受,不禁大叫:“疼—!!”。随即,疼痛突然消失,在他的眉间似乎升起了一缕青烟。
他感觉眉间出现了一个洞。当他摇头时,他能听到风声。“到底是不是有一个洞啊!?”。他转头对爱将说,“嗨,我的眉间出现了一个洞”。 但她说,“你说什么呢?哪有什么洞啊!”然后不再理睬他。当他对着镜子时也看不到那个洞。可是,

每当他走动的时候,他就听到风的声音。“我到底怎么了?!”。他再次躺到床上,也不知道发生了什么。
突然发生了一个奇怪的事情。他周围的空间被猛烈的吸进眉间的洞里。他心里大叫:“我的天呐!”,有一种东西正在全速流进那个洞里。

过了一阵,前额的洞穴关闭了。他起了身。那时他看到了一个红豆粒大小的小人身穿作务衣,在45度角斜下方朝他虔诚地礼拜。“他是谁?我在哪里见过这人?!”。他这样想着,仔细端详那个人,发现那人竟是Isadon自己。“我的天呐!是我自己!那我是谁??”他又看看自己,竟是一尊大佛。
他开始懂了。

━━━━━  “我明白了。金色佛进入了我的身体。我不够优秀,所以不能跟金色佛生活在一起,于是被驱逐出体外”。  ━━━━━  

 
看到人类心灵的形状

过了一段时间,Isadon不知不觉开始关注起人的名字,到了无法自拔的地步。许许多多的人名一个一个像潮水般涌向他。第三天夜里,他又无法入睡,破晓时不禁放声大叫,“哇啊–哦!”。瞬间,名字第一个字和第二个字之间连起一条线,似乎看到其中的规律。
这是以后Isadon判读karuma的开始。名字表现出各自不同的心的形状(karuma),却都遵循着阴阳的法则。

他每天因为工作要去不同的家里,这时神奇的事情不断发生。尽管他第一次到别人家,却能发现别人家里出现的问题,并能看到解决的方法。不久Isadon开始接收别人的相谈。当他开始说话,他会说出一些自己从未听过的内容。那不是他自己的话,而是他体内佛说的话。Isadon自己一直在他的身体外面,聆听佛的话语并从中学习。

 
传播地球的真相

一天, 佛陀对他说,“修炼1000天”。所以,以后的三年时间里他每天都进行冥想。

某一天他冥想的时候,他脱离了自己的身体。好像火箭发射,越升越高。最后,他飞到了外太空。

背对着月亮,他凝望地球。
“真美啊—这颗宇宙空间漂浮着的蓝色星球”。它神奇的美丽。但是,类似伤疤(keloid)的东西在星球随处可见。它们是人类活动的痕迹,比如城市和被破坏的森林。他们就像皮肤癌一样腐蚀着地球。

Isadon心里感到一种强烈的忏悔。
“让地球变成这样的,不是别的就是我自己。种子存在于所有人的心中。明白地球真相的我,要传播这个信息”。做出这个决定后,他慢慢从宇宙空间回到了自己正在冥想的身体。

他遇到佛陀以后,就停止了吃肉和吃鱼。也不再穿着华丽的衣服。爱将说“我们本来要挣钱过好生活,但这跟我们的约定不一样”。“我们的儿子脑子进水了”,他的父母也很担心。

但与此同时,有些人通过传言知道了“有个有意思的人”。想听他的话并想探索内心的人开始聚集起来。每天晚上,人们都到他店铺二楼听他讲话。有些晚上,他连续讲了15个小时。Isadon涌出的话语,好似在瀑布斋戒沐浴,让人感到心得到神奇的净化,洗净后各自回家。
有一天,他随口问佛,“人们这样聚集起来,如果形成一个组织,我是否将成为某个未来宗教的大师?”。佛答道,“下一个时代不需要组织。聚集人们,聚集并谈论,真实会从谈论中出现。下个世界将从那里开启” 。

 
“我感到痛苦”

每一天,Isadon继续着与佛的对话。这是Isadon否定自我的过程。
他心中涌现各种自我想法,如“我想做这个做那个”。但是,“无论如何佛陀的教诲都更高一筹。这样的话,我就选择佛陀”。在他持续否定自己的过程中,他受着孤独的煎熬,感觉自己似乎要永远消失掉。
他道心坚定。然而,他仍觉得痛苦。他想让佛理解他的痛苦,他对佛说,“我很痛苦”。佛说到,“如果这样,你要放弃这条道吗?”。

听到这话,Isadon感到气愤。
“很多人都不知道这神圣之道。然而,一旦遇到谁会离开?不论发生什么,我会坚持。但是,我天资愚笨,配不上它的高贵。要改过自新我感到很痛苦。我只想让佛陀理解这个”。
稍许,佛缄默无语。然后,佛说,
“你不是不知道。这你肯定知道”。

佛有时像父亲,有时像母亲,有时像师傅,无时无刻都守护着他,引导者他。佛比任何人都明白他的想法。
佛陀教会他脱离自我反观自我。Isadon逐渐开始超越功利和自我思维,去接触事物。

这样,他从30岁开始,随佛求道9年。

お釈迦様

 
为何不试着自己走路?你可以走路

Isadon 39岁时,他通过客户的介绍结识了两位女性萨满法师:一位是Sumiko-san,比他年长12岁;另一位是Ikuyo-san,比他年轻12岁。那以后,他偶尔去拜访Sumiko-san。不知何时他忽然觉得一直在自己头顶的佛离他远了一点,他想真是奇怪。

有一天,他去Sumiko-san家的时候,她跟Isadon说,“Isadon-san,现在佛有话跟你说”,然后她传达了佛的话。Isadon很惊讶,“佛向来直接和我说话,但为何要通过Sumiko-san传话给我呢?前些时候开始感到佛疏远我了,佛是不是要离开我了 ━━━━━”。

他在心里对佛说,“你要离开我吗?我还像个孩子,不敢自己走路”。他并没有开口说话,仅仅是在心里跟佛说话。那时,回答来自Sumiko-san。“Isadon-san,放心,佛不会离开你,他只是完成了任务,要回到天上。从此以后,佛会在天保佑你”。
听完这话,Isadon想,“我所经历的全都是真的!”。

那之前,他跟佛的对话一直是在内心进行的。当初他听到佛的声音的时候,他还怀疑自己是不是疯了。但是,怀疑不会有什么答案。所以,他尝试去除掉疑心,努力向前进一些,从而遇到从未见过的崭新世界。周而复始这种体验,结果,孕育了信仰之心。
但是,他内心的想法现在从另一个人的嘴里说了出来。“我的经历不是幻觉。佛确实存在”。这时他从心底确信佛陀了。同时,摆脱了遇到佛以来的9年中,一直存在于内心的疑惑。

可是,现在他终于能真正相信佛了,佛却要离开他。他恳切地对佛说。“我还像个婴儿,在寻道的路上怎能没有您呢?”。这回佛没有通过Sumiko-san而是直接回答了他。
“你已经长大了。只有你自己认为自己是个孩子。试着走路吧。你可以走路”。佛改了对Isadon的称呼。把Isadon看做是自己的朋友,而不再是儿子或学生。

佛越升越高,远离了他。Isadon边哭边想“请别走”。但是,他也知道这一刻迟早会到来。这次,Sumiko-san说,“Isadon-san,没关系,你已经有足够的力量了。”

 
遇到日本之神

Isadon开车离开了Sumiko-san的家。现在与他共处9年的佛离开了他,他想自己不会再跟神灵对话了。

但是,当开车三分钟左右,到一个红绿灯前面时,好像看到空中有什么。好像是一张脸,也似乎是什么魂。这时,一个声音降临了。“我是日本之神”。他想,“我不相信神,神怎么会来到我这样一个人的面前呢?”

声音继续说道,“从此以后我将保护你”。他想,“现在佛走了,我没有别的选择,只能听它的了”。所以他对日本之神说了声“请多关照”。从此,随佛九年之后,同日本之神的旅程开始了。

 
日出前到日本顶端

那是Isadon人生中第40个夏天。一个声音从天而降,“去攀登富士山”。当他问为什么,他被告知,“日出前站在日本最高峰,然后接受指令”。他并不知道为何要攀登富士山。但是他想,“神这样说了,那我就要做”。他决定去攀登富士山。
周末的富士山人山人海。这是他第一次登富士山,他感到非常的疲惫。但是,“我绝对要在日出前登上顶峰”。他拼命地攀登,最后在日出前登上了山顶。

富士山(黒)

东方的天空渐渐变白。他忽然发现有个东西像星星似的在闪耀。他想,“那就是让我来到这里的东西吧”。他向星光说。“现在,我如约站在了日本的顶峰,请赐予我指令”。那是1991年8月12日早上4点45分。神谕从天而降:“从现在开始,把你的心传授到太阳下的每一片土地”。

“太阳下的土地”意味着不仅仅是日本,还包括太阳照到的所有土地,那就是整个地球。Isadon马上想到,“这不可能!像我这样的人不可能完成那样浩大的任务”。他开始自问自答。佛告诉他,“试着走路吧!你可以自己走路”。他想,“在过去的九年里,我学习净化心灵,今后我求道的意志仍然坚定。那么今后我要做的不就是继续保持我的心吗”。

下山的时候,惊讶地感到攀登时的艰辛早已变成了“我会再来”的决心。心里想,攀登富士山就像是人生。

 
不愿净化心灵的神们

Isadon与神灵的交流,要么他直接收到讯息,要么通过两位萨满法师Isadon再判断神的真实旨意。这种情况使他产生了一个疑问。人们各自拥有自己的神,并觉得“我的神最好”,且神也不会纠错。

Isadon随佛9年修炼净化心灵,所以他总是抱着纯粹的好奇心询问神各种问题。神一开始回答的非常有威严,当他的意识层次提高,他的问题也变得难度更高时,神垂下头说,“我不能回答你的问题…”然后就消失掉了。接着下一个更高位的神出现说“我会保护你”。这个过程一直反复,保护Isadon的神一共变了七次。

当他发现Sumiko-san一边说着神的旨意,一边从信徒那里收钱的时候,对她说,“你不应该用神的话来欺骗别人”。从此以后,他不再去拜访她。在另一位萨满法师Ikuyo-san那里,神奉承人,且人又利用神,都不去净化内心。所以,Isadon开始不喜欢与神共处。某一天,Ikuyo-san的母亲说,“古田san,神对古田san并不感觉舒服”。他想这是一个好机会,于是说,“那就把我逐出门吧”,然后离开了她的家。
他感到心情舒畅。他想,“我不再需要神的庇护。从今以后,我将投身于佛陀开示的净化内心道路。”那是佛离开他的一年之后。

 
现象与潜象

为了告诉人们应该怎样生活,告诉人们宇宙的真理,Isadon决心在家乡创立心修道场,让人们学习生活的真实,因此他时常回到美濃市。

有一天,他正在童年时经常在屋顶睡觉的当地神社睡午觉。那是阳光明媚的一天,围绕在神域的森林中,他睡得很舒服。

突然,他感到有人在叫醒他。于是他起来环顾了四周。他看到数不清的神明身穿铠甲,排满了神社的整个台阶甚至扶手处。他想,“这些是什么?”。他忽然听到“这些也是神”。他被告知,神的世界广阔无边,存在着掌管宇宙的神到掌管贫穷的神,神各司其职,像金字塔一样,每个人也处在金字塔的底端。

Isadon回想这一年是学习神界广大的一年,说了一声“谢谢”,然后走下神社的台阶。蓝色的天空装点着白云。

当他离开神域时,有意看了看天空,看到有什么在看着他。“那是什么?”。
Isadon向它问到“您是谁?”,但没有回答。他又问了一遍,“您的名字叫什么?”。
这时有了回音,“我没有名字”。

他想,“没有名字  ━━━━━ 那我怎么认识它好呢”,那个声音说,
“我是现象、我是潜象”。
那是宇宙本源的存在,是所有神明和世间万物的本源。

 
“有的世界”和“无的世界”

这个世界里,有包含肉体和物质的“可见世界”,还有包含思想和心灵的“不可见世界”。这两个世界合起来叫做“有的世界(现象界)”。Isadon到目前为止遇到的神都来自“现象界”。

在“现象界”的后面,还有“无的世界(潜象界)”,那里不存在思想、生命,甚至时空。那是一个只有“震动”的世界。它是永恒的世界,没有任何扭曲,完美无暇。我们生活在“现象界”,因此我们不能通过思维来理解“潜象界”。那个世界里,连存在与不存在的概念都没有,不可名状。
所谓“现象界”和“潜象界”是,“有的世界和无的世界”全部之本源,是遍满于一切万物的宇宙体系。

遥远的以前,当“有的世界”从“无的世界”里诞生时,一位名叫“Amano Minakanushino Okami(天之御中主大神)”的天界的大神明第一个从虚空出现;作为“有的世界”里的第一个神明名叫“kunino Tokotachino Okami(国之常立大神)”的大地之神也诞生了。这两位大神诠释着宇宙创造的本源“现象与潜象”的天意。从前Isadon所遇到的“有的世界”里的众神,就是合力封印国之常立大神的八百万神众。

 
“我在你体内”

那时,常在Isadon那里聚会学习的和太鼓团体将他们的活动舞台搬到了奥三河的東栄町。由此,Isadon有缘开始参与Hana Matsuri (意为“花祭”)。

那是Isadon40岁的冬天。他的一位女性朋友无意带来的一份宣传单上写着“熊野是人间天堂”。他看到这信息后,不知为什么强烈地感到自己必须去一趟熊野。那时,他又碰巧在東栄町认识了每个月都要去参拜位于熊野三山里的玉置神社的人们。他就决定跟他们一同随行。

同时,有一位出身東栄町世代扮演鬼角色的家族的人,邀请他参拜玉置神社后,再去拜访伊勢神社。

出发的前几天,一个宗教团体的宣传册夹在了门缝里。他打开宣传册,看到上面写着,“当人的心灵变美,人们开始聆听来自内心世界的声音。这个声音是Kunino Tokotachino Okami(国之常立大神)”。在去往熊野的路上,当他询问一位随行女士玉置神社所供奉的神灵时,她回答“是Kunino Tokotachino Okami(国之常立大神)。”

有个有趣的故事。供奉Kunino Tokotachino Okami(国之常立大神)-大地之神也就是地球神的玉置神社;供奉Amaterasu Omikami(天照大御神)-太阳神的伊勢神社;供奉Amaterasu Omikami(天照大御神)的妻子-Seoritsu姬(瀬尾律姫)的东荣町槻(日本語为“tsuki”,意为“月亮”)神社(神话故事中Amaterasu Omikami(天照大御神)被描述为女神,但实际为男神),从西南到东北,整齐地排成一列,正好指向Ushitora(艮)方向(东北方向)。大地、太阳、月亮的灵位在那里形成一线。
不仅如此,在它面向东北方向(Ushitora(艮)方向)的延伸线上、地球历中的立夏(5月3日)(也是Isadon生日)的方角,矗立着富士山。在花祭仪式中有段花祭中的重要角色榊鬼与代表人的老翁进行对话的一幕。老翁的对白中有一句是,“Ise tensho Kotaijin(伊勢天照皇大神)、Kumano Gongen(熊野権現)、富士浅間(富士山之神)”。可知,与这个仪式无关的Fuji Sengen(富士浅間)在那时便已经出现。

在去往熊野的路上,天空出现了祥云。Isadon拜访了玉置神社并在那里过了一夜。接着他又在榊原温泉住了一晚。第二天早上他在飘雪的榊原温泉车站等电车前往伊勢神社的时候,空气中突然漂来了一股香甜的味道。
“这是什么香气?”,他习惯性地抬头问道。然而,从他的丹田处发出了声音。他问,以前都是从天上听到声音,这次为什么出自身体内部,对方回答,“我在你体内”。
他再次抬头,看到天上也有神。但是,这次听到的声音来自下面(体内)。他意识到这就是Kunino Tokotachino Okami(国之常立大神)- 大地之神的存在。

我们是从土壤中获取食物来维持生命的。因此,我们都是大地之子。大地也就是地球,我们都是他的一部分,大地之神存在于我们每个人的体内。如果我们能净化内心并超越自我,任何人都会听到内心的声音。

 
去富士山脚下吧!

在Isadon40岁时辞掉了工作。他的目标是在他的家乡照顾父母的同时,开一家心灵道场。但是,父母并不欢迎这个辞去优异工作回家的儿子。他意识到不管他怎样努力为父母尽孝,都不能让持有不同价值观的人接受他的想法,那只能带来不幸。他决定离开家乡。这时他想起了曾经收到神的讯息的富士山。
“我们去富士山脚下吧!然后建立一个菩萨村吧”。菩萨是指把世界的和平或把他人的快乐视为自己的健康快乐的存在。菩萨村是一处人们心灵相通、相互帮助、彼此不分你我、分享快乐,并共同居住的地方。

20位赞同Isadon想法的人聚到了一起。没人劝说一起走。他们只觉得,“还不太确定,但肯定的是将开始一种新的生活”。有些人整理了家产,有些人顶住了来自父母的强烈反对,根据自己的意愿聚集在了一起。

1994年3月21日,春分之日,富士山脚下的菩萨村-木之花家族就这样开始了。

 
鬼进屋,福也进屋

自木之花家族创立以来的21年间,发生了许许多多戏剧般的故事。人们直感这是很重要的生活方式,并且聚集到一起。但是,我们每个人都非常的不成熟,总被自我蒙蔽,并只想到自己。因此,我们尚离菩萨很远。
Isadon耐心对待每个成员,有时强硬,有时温柔,有时幽默,认真教授净化内心的方法,帮助人们开化自己。他俨然成为一个鬼,教导被自我迷惑心灵的成员走向觉醒。
那简直就是很久很久以前被众神隔离的大地之神(Kunino Tokotachino Okami(国之常立大神)的严厉,同时也是引领人们从黑暗走向光明的真爱。

不知从何时起,木之花家族在一年中最冷的一天(也是冬天的最后一天)2月3日举办起祝祭,其中融入了一些東栄町花祭的精华。带着对鬼的感激,抛着黄豆说“鬼进屋吧,福也进屋吧”。鬼照射人内心的阴暗处,教示人们走向光明。 ━━━━━  。

现在,木之花家族的成员已经增加到80名。尽管我们每个人都不够完美,但我们努力超越自我的禁锢并走向正途。结果,开启了一种崭新的生活方式。来自不同背景的人相互着想,分享内心感受,过上富足的生活。在这种温暖的絆(kizuna,有联系、支撑、互助的意思)里,“奇迹”发生了,有心理问题的人们逐渐恢复了健康,而之前医生和药品都没能治愈他们。
社会上蔓延着抑郁症和自杀,世界发生了经济崩溃、恐怖袭击、全球变暖带来的自然灾害的增加以及日本福岛地震等。人们为了满足自己的欲望,在生活中追求的“越来越多”。这就是现代社会。世界上发生的许多事件给人类带来了无限痛苦。然而,通过痛苦,地球是不是也在给我们一些警示呢?

 
<富士浅間木之花祭>(konohana matsuri)

2012年12月21日是玛雅预言中的世界末日。当天宇宙发生了重大事件。我们居住的太阳系迎来了25800年一次的星系冬至。
冬至是黑暗的顶点。太阳系自冬至以后逐渐从黑暗期进入光明期。光明的增加,意味着我们看不到的暗物质被光照射,真理将显现。

迎接2013年新年后,木之花家族在2月3日举行了第一回富士浅間木之花祭。
契机是有一个研究花祭的学者提议木之花家族在富士的大地上继承传统的花祭。并由東栄町的传承人从一传授了花祭的舞蹈、日本笛子、太鼓,以至会场的装饰。第一回富士浅間木之花祭举办得非常盛大非常成功,让人们理解了花祭的真意就是“重生与净化”,并在日常生活中实践它。花祭集聚了很多舞者和来自各地的神明,在仪式现场他们的能量相互交融,形成了人和神合为一体的旋涡。

第二年的2014年,花祭当天的早晨,长得很像sakaki(榊)鬼的Ushitora(艮)金神降临到Isadon身边。金神说,“就在今天,Ushitora(艮)金神的封印将会解除”。
2014年的木之花家族,家族全体遇到了很大的动摇,这一年成了不平凡的一年。因歪曲事实的流言,家族在网络上受到了很多的非难,周刊志也刊登了家族的事迹,一直依赖Isadon的家族成员每一个人,用自己的语言,重新确认了选择木之花生活方式的理由和生活的真意。

在这种状况中,太阳玛雅族最高祭祀,尊母Nah Kin氏受“富士山是连接宇宙中心的场所”的灵示,到访了木之花家族。并在7月26日玛雅新年之际,为了以富士山为天线,向世界发信真爱,与木之花家族共同举行了玛雅新年祝祭。不可思议的是,与木之花家族创立的同时期,生活在地球反对侧的Nah Kin氏,看到了从银河中心有一束光照射到富士山,把爱和能量传播到地球全体的未来景象。20年后,基于共同意志生活的人们终于聚到了一起。
如果富士山是天的意志降临的天教山,那么潜藏在熔岩里的意志喷发的地教山就是喜马拉雅。他的周期是每25800年出现一次冬至的太阳系周期的四分之一,大约为6500年。2014年正好是银河冬至到来,并开始6500年新循环的重大历史转折点。就在这一年,Isadon受邀拜访了喜马拉雅Hartola村和世界最大社区印度曙光村。

 
红色火焰变成金色 继而成为白色的光

自佛陀离开Isadon起经过了24年,他独自走在这条道的先头,从未抱怨。但他动摇的心像红色火焰般一直在他内心燃烧。那颗心就是“我只想让人们懂”。他只希望人们认清真相。那种热情的火焰通过拜访印度,逐渐变成了金色,继而开始变为白色。

在曙光村,Isadon遇到了已经去世的创始人maza和他的伴侣印度思想家Sri Aurobindo的灵魂。初次遇到的Sri Aurobindo的灵魂,引导Isadon的视线,让他看到许多事物,每当视线停留在某件事物时,Aurobindo说,“我在这里”,“那里我也在”,“我无所不在”。当Isadon想,他的灵魂遍满万物时,Aurobindo却说,“存在于万物,即是不存在”。这时Isadon直觉这就是地球之魂,也就是Ushitora(艮)金神。

Aurobindo的灵魂说,“你知道我。你一直和我在一起”。当Isadon问,“你是在我的体内吗?”。Aurobindo答到,“我在你的体内,也在你的体外,我无所不在”。

Maza的灵魂就像温柔的姐姐,迎接了偶尔因为红色火焰的炽热而把自己烧焦的Isadon。面对这次印度之行之前患十二指肠溃疡的Isadon,说,“来我这吧。我会治愈你被烧的身体”,“从现在开始,我将帮助你”。这意味着神和地一起创造世界。
从前,尽管讲的是真实,但真实并未得到认可,只能靠热情的红色火焰前行。但是,从现在开始只要用心讲真实,真实将会得到认可。再不用燃烧红色火焰。红色火焰将会变为金色,最终将变成白光。

天采配地的时代将要到来,地球上的生命要理解它,并要实践它。那里没有自我意识,只有遵从天意的意志。因为真实不在人的自我中,而是在天的一边。

木之花家族所走过来的24年中,一直存在着“天之理”和“地之理”的循环。“天之理”是,天意开示的天之御中主(Amano Minakanushino Okami)之道。“地之理”是,人类在地上积累经验,一点一点走上天阶的国之常立(Kunino Tokotachino Okami)之道。这两尊大神所展现的是宇宙创造的源泉-神之用心“现象与潜象”。我们都处在从自己所在的地方,回归到原本为一个的旅程中。就如音乐盒的按钮奏着音乐,回到最初的状态。

Isadon说:会有一天,管理这个国家的人将来此发问,“我们已经努力去尝试建立一个真正富裕的好国家,但并不如愿,我们应该如何引导这个国家?”。那时,我将这样回答他们。“那不是建立体制机制的问题。请看生活在这里的人们的内心。当人们都以这样的内心生活的时候,那里就是真正富足的国家”。

 
觉悟真实 走向真正的快乐

2015年1月31日。
第三回富士浅間木之花祭仪式中,头戴金色面具身穿白色衣装的Ushitora(艮)金神开始登场了。这是当初为了给Sakaki(榊)鬼面赋予生命力,而独自制作面具过程中,Isadon忽然涌现制造金色面具的启示,而制造出来的。制作完成的面具不再是Sakaki(榊)鬼面,而是Ushitora(艮)金神。这样花祭仪式中新增加了解除封印的Ushitora(艮)金神的演目,给意味“重生与净化”的花祭,赋予了新的灵魂。

花祭的前几天黎明时分,正在睡觉的Isadon感觉到一团足球大小的光从屋顶缓缓降临下来。他想,“这是什么?”。他继续仔细观察,发现从光环中伸出两只手臂在左右挥舞,并开始唱到“好高兴啊!好快乐啊!”
Isadon想到,“这就是跟随Ushitora(艮)大神的八百万诸神的模样”。曾经因为厌恶净化内心,而封印金神的诸神,开始觉悟到真实,享受着真正的快乐。这也是祝祭中忘我地跳舞,挣脱自己的禁锢,最终成为一体的人们的模样。
