The Eye-Opening
Natural Therapy Program

As modern civilization has developed, people have forgotten to live with nature. They have rushed to try and gratify their own desires, sensing pleasure when their desires are satisfied, and considering this pleasure to be proof of abundance. Currently, contradictions due to this orientation have begun to crop up as problems everywhere in the world.
Various eras have left their mark on earth, up to the present day. The transitions from one era to the next can be linked to the planetary movements of the solar system. Many people have not realized this yet, but the cycles which planets describe have brought to the earth the turning points of the eras. For example, AI (Artificial Intelligence) is sweeping the world now. Changes throughout society, and even our individual actions, are about to be controlled by AI. This symbolizes the current era, and the will of the planets is reflected there.
In this flow of the era, various contradictions have also begun to appear as problems in the family. Now that child abuse, domestic violence, unattended deaths, and even nurse murder are occurring, the young generation which is supposed to create society with hope has lost hope. People in their 20s to 50s, who have the most productivity, have experienced mental illness. Currently, about 4 million people in Japan go to medical facilities due to mental disorders. It is said that the number of those who are on the verge of developing mental problems is ten times this number. That is, about one third of Japanese people are mentally sick. However, modern psychiatric care is centered on symptomatic treatment, which tries to suppress symptoms with medicine. Even counseling does not have the effect of making people fundamentally healthy. On the contrary, the longer patients are sick, the more medical costs are incurred, generating profits for hospitals. In fact, there is even a tendency not to hope for the fundamental recovery of patients at psychiatric facilities. In reality, medical costs are included in the GDP and become an indicator of abundance.
As reflected in the writing of “diseases (病気)” with characters meaning “energy (気) is sick (病)” in Japanese, all sickness is caused by our minds. Just as none of our bodies are the same, our individual minds are more unique than they look. Although pathological symptoms seem the same, each person’s process for reaching them is different. Therefore, we cannot deal with each situation according to some uniform prescription such as, “we should do this for depression.” What kind of environment was a person born in? What kind of personality does he/she have? How has he/she lived their life? Moreover, what kind of transitions has his/her soul gone through? What kind of social environment is he/she in now? Through the Natural Therapy Program which NPO Green Grass provides, we make efforts to respect each person’s original life, to walk together, to analyze the root cause for sickness, and to find the path to true health.
Numerous miracles have occurred, so that those who could not improve with modern medicine have been able to recover their health here. That is, they have begun to take the path to re-conceptualizing the source of their sickness, and realizing their life purpose. This is the path for individuals not only to recover their own health, but also to bring health to the society which has generated them, and to create an abundant society. Currently, the time is coming when the world will require a big shift in people’s viewpoints. The planetary cycles of the solar system are telling us this. This is the manifestation of the great will of the universe, which is beyond our human comprehension. At the same time, the healing of our sick minds here on earth will bring evolution to the universe.
Hoping that many people will live with hope through the Natural Therapy Program to recover their health in the future…

 


NPO Green Grass
NPO Green Grass was founded in 2001 by people who had the same vision as Konohana Family. It provides various social contributions in collaboration with Konohana Family, with the purpose of creating a society where people support each other and live together.

Why don’t You Recover your Mental and Physical Health in an Environment Surrounded by Nature Rich in Greenery at the Foot of Mt. Fuji?

A Program to Face and Improve Our Minds
In collaboration with Konohana Family, NPO Green Grass provides a program to help participants face and improve their minds. This is the Natural Therapy Program (known as the “care stay”), in which people stay at Konohana Family and try to recover their mental and physical health.
According to data for the year 2014 provided by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, 3,920,000 people in Japan went to medical facilities due to mental illness, including 1,120,000 patients with depression and 770,000 patients with schizophrenia.
At modern medical facilities, the chronicity and prolongation of mental illness and the current practice of relying solely on medications have become social issues.
Considering these issues, NPO Green Grass accepts for its program those with mental disorders (depression, schizophrenia), various dependencies (drug, alcohol and nicotine), problematic actions (staying-at home, school refusal) and lifestyle diseases. There are numerous cases in which care guests have improved their condition dramatically in a short period of time and have been able to return to society. As a result, even modern medical institutes have paid attention to our activity.


*In the case of Non-Japanese guests, we provide the program to those who can communicate and explain their physical and mental state in either Japanese or English.


 

3 Pillars of the Natural Therapy Program

1. Healthy Diet full of Life Energy = Gaining Physical Immunity
Food is considered medicine at Konohana Family. Almost all food is produced by the community through the Universal Circulation Method (based on the principle by which the source of life energy which is brought to nature). A diet full of life energy actually works as medicine both physically and mentally. Vegetarian meals are centered around brown rice. Food therapy based on enzyme-rich diets such as Nishi-style Koda therapy (fasting, half-day fasting, and raw food) is also prescribed. This diet is very effective at improving not only physical conditions like atopy but also emotional instability and mental disorders.

 
2. Regular Life Rhythm Based on Nature = Living with the Rhythm of the Moon, the Sun and the Earth
By living in keeping with a rhythm based on nature, care guests can take in the natural energy which is “the original energy” that draws forth a natural immunity within the body and allows them to recover their health.
Everyone can regulate their physical and mental rhythms easily by living in accordance with the regular life rhythm (the rhythm of the moon, the sun and the earth) through such practices as working during the daytime, having meals on a fixed time schedule, and reflecting on their experiences at the end of the day in an agriculture-based community lifestyle.

 
3. Reflecting on the Mind that has Caused Disease = Gaining Mental Immunity
We do not cure care guests. What we do instead is to help them search for and face their way of mind — the root cause of their diseases, and to provide an environment within which they can improve their life consciousness. The important thing is to help them to gain a “Mental Immunity” to face themselves without running away from their problems. By learning from members who work on such things in their daily lives, care guests are able to maintain a stable mind and lead a healthy life even after they encounter problems back in their original environment (family or company).

 

“High Spirituality” creates a “Healing Place” and spreads a beautiful vibrancy.

Healing Space (Harmonious Spirituality)

An individual healthy mind and body creates a healthy society.
→ Realization of a world without medical care

 

The Contents of the Program

Support System
A member becomes the supporter and generally shares a room with the care guest. A reliable 24 hour support system is provided.

Counseling
We generally provide counseling to the participant prior to the program, upon entry, and weekly after that to decide on their therapeutic process.

main supporter – Jiiji

Diary
When care guests get used to staying here, they start to keep a diary. The main supporter reads the diaries and makes comments.

Daily Life
As for the way the care guests spend their daily life during their stay, the main supporter provides suggestions which are appropriate to each guest’s situation. In many cases, care guests spend time freely for the first week without being given a task by the main supporter. After they get used to staying here, they do what they can do, such as working in the field, helping with housework, etc. during the daytime. By writing a journal and reflecting on the counseling they receive, they gradually nurture objective perspectives that allow them to see themselves clearly.

Rehabilitative Training
Care guests can have various work experiences in Konohana Family as a part of rehabilitative training.

Collaboration with the Care Guest’s Family
There are some cases in which we contact the care guest’s family during the stay, and if possible, we ask the family to attend the counseling. We can proceed with the program more effectively by trying to improve the situation including the family relationships.

Graduation
Generally, the program ends when the care guests are given a score of 70% improvement, based on the main supporter’s judgement). We do not give a 100% score during the stay in order to encourage the care guests to continue improving their situation through practices back in their original environment. The end of the program is called “graduation” and “graduation concerts (graduation ceremonies)” are held to celebrate their departure toward a new life.

Course after Graduation
After graduation, some guests return to their original school/company, and some continue to stay here. In this case, some try to stabilize their body and mind more as a long-term guest, and some try to look for a future vision by staying on as a helper. Also, some work outside in rehabilitative training for the future, secure an income to pay for their accommodation fee here, and deepen their learning through continuing the Konohana lifestyle.

Aftercare
After graduation, counseling and mail exchanges are provided upon request. Also, there are many people who continue to stay after the completion of the residential care program, and/or visit here regularly to deepen their learning. By living in the community as part of a family for a certain period, they gain strong bonds with members and are greeted with a warm “Welcome back” upon their return visits. They feel relieved to have a second home where they can ask for consultation any time.

Cost
The program costs US$30 per day, including accommodations, meals, facility charges, laundry, etc. Special expenses such as doctor’s fees are paid by care guests. All the care-related services such as counseling, support system, etc. are provided free of charge. The period of the stay is generally one to three months.

“P’s Report on Taking the Natural Therapy Program”
-Never too late to make a shift in our life!-

An American woman, P took the Natural Therapy Program from January to February, 2019 and has changed a lot. We would like to introduce her experiences.

“I am a seventy-year-old American. When I was a child, my mother was depressed due to an unhappy marriage and encouraged me to use my intelligence and have a good career, so that I wouldn’t need to depend on a husband in the future. I worked hard and became a university professor; however, I have been unhappy almost all my life. The main cause of distress in recent years has been depression and anxiety related to my own marriage of thirty years. Due in part to health issues, I retired from my job fifteen years ago, and began a long search to improve my mental and physical condition. This has brought me to Konohana Family today.”

In January, 2019, P visited the Konohana Family, feeling as if she was clutching at straws. Jiiji, the counselor of the Natural Therapy Program, said to her at the consultation, “What you need is not to receive treatment, but to broaden your worldview.” With this understanding, she began to take the Natural Therapy Program.

First, she was given the task of “writing a journal to know herself accurately.” She worked hard on it every day, utilizing her excellent intelligence, and Jiiji evaluated her highly, saying “Your self-analysis is perfect.” However, at the same time, he thought, “No matter how many ideas people have for trying to improve themselves, if these thoughts come from their mental habits or desires, people will be trapped in them and unable to realize the fact that they are actually bound by their own thoughts. Instead of improving, they will fall into the misunderstanding that expressing their own thoughts is freedom. Surprisingly, this is a trap into which intellectually excellent people tend to fall.” In this situation, he gave a revolutionary suggestion after P had stayed here for two weeks!

This was the proposal that P would distinguish two Ps in herself, and have time every night for a discussion among P-A, who has lived with her mental habits and emotions, P-B, who tries to admonish P-A objectively, and Jiiji. He said, “P-B has wisdom which is good enough to make herself healthy. However, P-A, who has lived her own life, resists P-B’s suggestions. Therefore, the most important key in this project is which P you are going to prioritize. When you reverse your thinking patterns, you will have an ability not only to save yourself but also to be helpful to save even others.”

After this, when P woke up in the morning and negative thoughts came up, Jiiji encouraged her, saying, “When you encounter P-A, this is actually your chance for improvement. When you get up in the morning and feel negative, it is an opportunity!” When P initially reacted emotionally to a message from her husband, but then regained her calmness quickly, Jiiji said to her, “His message was a good exam today! Living a life is like always taking an exam to know our mental state. It is important to accept everything just as information.” Through this work, P began to get out of the state in which she was bound by herself and lacked an objective viewpoint and came to see her own reality. As a result of having broadened her worldview gradually, she successfully graduated from the Natural Therapy Program after six weeks.

“Reflecting on my life now, I have realized that the real source of the difficulties in my life has not been the traumatic events of my childhood, but my choice to view them as a curse rather than as engraved invitations to spiritual growth. In fact, Jiiji has reassured me that it’s not too late to make a shift in my life, and that all the energy that has been going into my suffering can be a very powerful agent for the good when it is re-directed. This is an immense encouragement for me.

Much of my change here is due to what I have experienced, rather than simply taken in intellectually. Many of the experiences that will stay with me came to me as a result of observing, interacting with, or just floating among the members of the Konohana Family. They were just open to me, and willing to help and share however they could. Now, I know I do not need to foresee the whole plan; when I do what I need to do, the divine will kick in and support my efforts. I am very grateful to all the members of the Konohana Family for everything they have given to me.”

“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?

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.

“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.”
