Konohana Family Newsletter vol.100〈English〉

 
It is the biggest change ever in human history!

The time to correct the trajectory of humanity has finally arrived!

The people who live in the present era have fallen into a “Self-centered” way of thinking ────
Can you release yourself from this spell?

 

 
The Earth, a planet created through universal consensus

We live in the universe.

In the universe, everything is connected, circulating and harmonized. Each of the countless planets in the vastness of space have an original individuality which are unique to each other. The diversity of the planets interact with each other, maintain a perfect balance on a magnificent scale, and connect with each other as if they were playing as a single symphony, while vibrating a beautiful harmony.

The Earth was born with the consensus of the universe.

The Earth is a model of the universe. Fire, water, soil, air, wind, minerals, microorganisms, plants, animals ――― A variety of natural elements with various functions play roles that cannot be substituted by each other, while creating a rich life network called the Earth’s ecosystem. This life network is connected in an infinite circulation, which has evolved over the past 13.8 billion years, from the birth of our galaxy, to the past 4.6 billion years, with the birth of our planet. The Earth has become a unique planet with a vast life force which cannot be found anywhere else in the universe.

At the peak of its eternal evolution, humanity was born upon the Earth as the only species out of the millions of others to exist, or have existed, upon this planet.

In ancient times, humans received their orders from the planets, interacted with nature, and lived according to an ecological cycle with many other lives. The people during those times intrinsically knew that they were part of this great universe and that their lives were provided and supported by the circulation of the cosmos. However, this life, which appeared at the end of a long evolutionary journey, began to evolve rapidly, which is historically unprecedented. Human beings have come to bring a massive influences upon the ecosystem of this planet, which continues to circulate beautifully according to the arrangements of the universe.

 

 

Extraordinary natural phenomenon are the messages that wake us up

Human beings have very different points of view from other lives. This is due to their outstanding egos.

The Earth, the planet of diversity, has many unique lives. Among non-human lives, there are not many differences between individuals of the same species. Individual lives seem to exist according to the will of the individual, but on the premise that each serves their role as a species, and completes their life without deviating from the cycle of the Earth’s ecosystem, which connects all functions together. However, human beings were given different characters within the same species, and came to see themselves separately from each other because of their uniqueness. While in the past they were aware of the existence of “oneself”, they have since forgotten that they are a part of this great world. Now humans give priority to fulfilling the purpose of the individual over serving the whole as a species.

Human beings have a high creativity that is not found in other lives. They have come to realize the desires that spring out from them by utilizing their abilities. Their desires grow further as their wishes come true, and their egos grow steadily. As a result, humans have forgotten the existence of the stars, communicating with nature, and, rather, they have started expanding the artificial world, which is convenient only for themselves, while ignoring many other lives.

The current world, created by modern people, is very negative, which stems from people putting themselves first, while only seeing situations according to their own perspective. Then, if there is something that they do not like or that does not match their preference, they regard it as a foreign object, deny and discriminate it, or attack it as an enemy. Even environmental protection, and peace movements perpetuate confirmation bias by denying and opposing each other. If something does not meet their standards, it becomes a target to be denied and even destroyed, whether it is an individual, a nation, or even nature.

On the other hand, the life force of the world embraces human beings, allocates for a variety of diverse lifeforms without denying any of them, and supports the uniqueness of each role. If human beings had an extraterrestrial perspective, we would know that the Earth is a place where everything is shared, and everything exists in mutual accord with each other. Then, we would realize how strange and ridiculous the current lifestyle of humanity has become, in which we only insist for ourselves and do not think of others. While having the highest ability among the many lives on Earth, humans pollute the environment, hurt other lifeforms, and even kill each other of the same species. It is totally unsuitable for the formation of this world, and it is harmful for the entire ecosystem; and as such, nature is ridding itself of what no longer serves the harmony of the whole.

In reference to the present, the world has been evolving according to natural selection. We realize this based on six mass extinctions that have occurred over the past 600 million years, and when we look back on the history of the Earth, there have been various natural disasters that have laid the foundation for the next stage of evolution. The word “extinction” may bring about a sense of fear or dread in those who are obsessed with themselves because they think that they will be broken and lost, however, it is only the natural metabolism of the Earth, which allows it to become healthy and continue to harmonize with the processes of the universe. Even though such a movement has already begun, human beings attempt to rectify the crisis with only superficial means by using their high abilities to accumulate more contradictions with the vast lifeforms of the Earth, which only exacerbates the situation.

 

 

Capitalism, a system for distributing the world’s abundance, is leading it into bankruptcy

If the Earth was created through the consensus of the universe, then there should have been a cosmic intention to create the Earth. But then why did the universe give birth to such an odd and ridiculous creature like humans?

Capitalism is a major factor that has contributed to the influence of negativity nowadays. In the past, abundance used to be what was given by nature, and humans were in a position to receive it and glorify that abundance with nature. However, as capitalism grew, abundance became something that had to be won through competing with others. And even though people won it and gratified their desires, they could not become happy. Typically, once people become satisfied, they tend to keep their satisfaction indefinitely. Nevertheless, people have sought to expand their egos by pursuing greater satisfaction, and therefore, they continue to experience dissatisfaction as they constantly inflate their egos. While humanity’s competition with itself has generated failures, the winners have a fleeting sense of superiority, and once they get used to it, it turns into an obsession for success.

As if the whole of society had fallen into a state of drug addiction, people keep expanding the artificial world with a uniform set of values, and further push forward in a direction without any prospects. Further, those who hold the reins of society, and expand the artificial world without paying any attention to nature, are considered as “excellent people”. However, such people cannot see that the society as a whole is being driven toward destruction because they are consumed by their artificially induced sense of excellence.

People have fallen into a big misunderstanding that freedom and abundance are only for fulfilling their own desires. In order to control such greedy people, who cannot live in harmony without being given rules, the government has created laws and applied them uniformly for people. People mistakenly got the idea that freedom meant that they could do anything in as long as they did not violate the law, which enabled them to act freely in order to gratify their own desires. As a result of such actions, the Earth is now overflowing with problems, and while people continue to practice modern science, they cannot find the fundamental causes or solutions. And while they are good at subdividing things and analyzing them one by one with high precision, they do not have the ability to connect them in an integrated manner and discern the nature behind the phenomena. Mass media creates sensationalism by only focusing on the surface problems, while both politicians and the masses eagerly criticize each other, which creates further impasse as society fails to resolve the mounting discord. Unfortunately, nobody realizes how to cooperate with each other and solve their problems together.

This is the result of human beings forgetting that they are just one of the milieu of lives that make up nature. They have forgotten that they were given their lives by the celestial bodies and nature, and continue to insist on their egocentric claims, and cannot see that this is the source of the conflicts, environmental destruction, and mounting global impoverishment. This is the spell of “self-centered-thinking” that all modern people have fallen into, and unless humanity is freed from this spell, the world will never become a better place.

 

 

The runaway ego is a global theme brought about by humanity

The time has come for human beings to return to the starting point of life.

Let’s expand our view into the universe again. Unquestionably, we are living in the universe now. In the universe, everything is linked, circulating and harmonized. There is our galaxy, under the laws of this great universe, our solar system, and the Earth. We human beings live as part of this preciously beautiful ecosystem expressed on the Earth. If this cosmic law got out of order, and the current balance cannot be maintained, we may not continue to exist very much longer. All beings, including human beings, are alive under this great cosmic law, and it is natural for us to live up to the law of this great source of life.

Modern people are fascinated by what they see in front of them, such as money and possessions, so their physical consciousness has become very strong. Therefore, if the environment is polluted, they develop new technologies to clean it up, and if there are conflicting situations, then they negotiate in order to accommodate each other’s interests. In this way, they practice a healthy resolution of problems by getting physical results for physical phenomena. However, the essence of the universe is based in spirituality, not in physicality. There is a deep spirituality behind all phenomena, and based on that, the order of this physical world is expressed. When you realize that, you will know that the attitude behind the operation of modern human beings is biased towards physicality. Now, that bias has created contradictions that appear as phenomena. Before you try to resolve it using physical means, start by noticing the mistake in your spirituality, correct it, and return to the essence of the universe. Thusly, the physical phenomena will become extremely peaceful, and the contradictions will be naturally resolved because the essence of the universe consists of benevolence, love and harmony.

Modern people think that the world is controlled by human beings, and that their will operates the world. However, the truth is that the Earth was created by the consensus of the universe long before the birth of mankind, and continues to be guided by the spiritual operation of the universe throughout its long evolution.

It may not be understood by modern people who see the world in a self-centered way, but now the era has entered the 21st century and we human beings are standing at a great crossroads. Will we choose to continue to live an egocentric 20th century lifestyle, which will lead to ruin? Or, will we take a step into the next millennium, and evolve towards the 30th century, with the recognition that we are universal beings.

Since the industrial revolution, the lifestyle of human beings has undergone tremendous development. That was also an era when the potential of human ability was examined. Nature has accepted humanity’s actions, but it does not mean that nature will continue to allow human beings to pursue their own desires, and disturb the order of the whole. But now is the time for human beings to learn what will happen if they continue to do so. If we fundamentally correct humanity’s activities, which are creating the current situation on the Earth, then we must realize that we are each representatives of humanity. This is not an environmental issue, but rather an issue concerning the egocentrism of all human beings.

The solution does not require a new political or economic system, which has already been attempted in order to resolve the excesses of capitalism – called communism. However, the people who advocated communism as their ideology were consumed by the very system that they created, and instead of overcoming the problems of capitalism, they created a society with no individuality spirituality that managed people uniformly. This type of idealism only became a conceptual change, but not one in practice. As you can see, no matter how you attempt to conceive of a new ideology, and try to improve the world, if you don’t fundamentally correct the spirit that creates the problem, then all attempts just become a mockery towards progress.

So what should we focus on when we examine the root cause? Spirituality, the source of all phenomena, and prior to the existence of human beings, there was an ecosystem, the Earth, the solar system, the galaxy, the universe, and out of such cosmic harmony we arose. So, we should focus our minds on the life force network of this world.

When we do this, the most difficult consideration for modern people to remove themselves from is their self-centered interests, which binds them by their own standards and limits how they can see the phenomena of life. Now the time has come for human beings to transcend their egos and create a world that harmonizes with the great will of the universe. This is, in fact, the greatest change of direction in human history, for we are making a change in our life’s trajectory. And this perspective allows us to know the true meaning of why human beings have arisen upon the Earth.
 

To every human being who lives in the 21st century

The era has entered the 21st century, and we are facing a major milestone in the long story of the Earth. The millennium, which has just started toward the year 3000, will not evolve according to the science developed during the 20th century. Now is the time to correct the autocratic behavior that has brought about such an evolution, and change our perceptions towards nature.

The Earth has started to rectify the contradictions that humans have accumulated on this planet. It requires enormous energy for human beings to correct their way of life, and change their direction. If it requires natural disasters, then these will cause tremendous pain. However, do we really need to undergo such hardship when we have such advanced abilities?
 

A conscious revolution to live

No matter how much human beings destroy this world, the natural world has the power to repair the destruction that we have influenced, and return it to its original state of health. However, that takes a very long time. That is why we must use human wisdom instead of relying on time.

Wisdom is not something that can be obtained by learning, but it is the essence of life that sleeps in the DNA of each one of us, and springs out intrinsically. Since we are a part of the great cosmic life force, all of the information from the beginning of the universe remains within our spiritual DNA. The properties of this universal wisdom are appropriately expressed according to the era in which we live. If the modern age is foolish, then there is wisdom to overcome such foolishness, and when we turn our consciousness towards the wisdom within ourselves, our latent potentials will arise. This is brought about because the era, which is driven by the will of the universe, has already changed its direction towards the next stage of evolution.

Rather than being subservient to the waves of time, human beings need to channel the will of the universe and create this world together, which will become a heaven on Earth, throughout which the will of the universe is expressed. It will not come about through systems of thought, like capitalism or communism, which only seek to control the production of wealth for human beings. It is the conscious revolution of life that will completely overturn humanity’s current level of awareness, which will bring about an age that has never before been experienced in all of human history.

To the people who control the power and wealth of the world
Please use your high status and excellent abilities to make this world truly healthy. The true value of man is spiritual. No matter how much you are admired in the current distortions of society, it is not your true value when you leave your body and become a spiritual being, and return to the universe. To become a truly worthy being, please have the courage to guide society in the right direction with a spirit of restoring the relationship between spirituality and physicality. Originally, those who were in positions of responsibility had to seriously consider the whole (the life force of the Earth, which includes human beings) and make decisions to create a proud country (Earth). If you can return to such a noble heart, then you will become truly precious in the lives of all sentient beings.
 

Awakening as a conductor for the Life Symphony of the Universe

The Earth is a miracle of the universe. In the first place, it is also a miracle that the universe has become a phenomenon. It is a message from the great will, far beyond human thought. Therefore, it is natural that the existence of this planet is a miracle in the universe, which can be said as SHINPI. SHIN means God, and PI means secret of the universe. SHINPI resides across every corner of our daily lives, however modern people, who have become polluted in their thinking, cannot believe of such an existence. Even though there is already a miracle in front of us, we have fallen into such a foolishness that we cannot understand that life is a miracle. Nevertheless, by recognizing the foolishness of our ways, and living according to the natural expression of SHINPI, then we will have made the first step toward removing the contradictions of this planet.

The most prosperous life on the Earth today is humanity. Essentially, life is something that grows in wealth as is prospers. If the essence of the universe is benevolence, love and harmony, then by sharing with more beings, we can express the Earth’s natural richness and diversity, which connects us with our life support network. However, why is the current world generating so many contradictions as humanity continues to grow? Originally, the more people we had to share with, the more abundance we could create and receive from the world. We must be aware of that.

When people hear the word “Heaven on Earth”, they may feel like this is only an imaginary world which is too impossible to realize. However, if we look at it from a different perspective, we can see that heaven on Earth is approaching because the destruction of humanity’s contradictions have already begun, along with the existing social systems. If you sense the will behind the messages that the Earth is communicating, then you can see that the cosmic intention is to bring us into a utopian era, which has been the striving of humanity since its inception. The realization of this great new world is entrusted within the awakening of each one of us.

We are now at the biggest cosmic turning point in human history. At the same time, human beings are facing an impasse as to what kind of world we are going to live in, as an expression of cosmic life.

The self-oriented, or human-oriented, worldview which has led to the fall of modern humanity, not only creates great contradictions for ourselves, but also casts a great shadow on the potential of humanity to prosper as part of the life force network on the Earth. We are now required to learn from the phenomena of this reality, transcend our self-oriented way of life, and live as an expression of the Earth’s beautiful ecosystem, which is a true miracle of the universe. It can be said, that human beings have a mission to become great conductors of life on the Earth through employing our high abilities. Now, we have passed the year 2000 and we have entered a new era in this great universe. The time has come for us to unleash our full potential as a conductor of this cosmic symphony, and live as an expression of the vast diversity of lives on this planet, according to a universal perspective.

To all of humanity
If your heart resonates with this message, please spread this freely to the people related to you across your countries and in your own languages. Please awaken to the original purpose as to why human beings were born into this world, realize the preciousness of being human, and express the consensus of the universe according to your own will. Then, you will become a leader in expanding the life network of our new planet. This message urges the awakening of every human being who lives on the Earth, since now is the time for everyone to take a leading role.

I hope to meet the beauty within each one of you as an expression of this beautiful Earth.

 

The 11th Earth Summit

〜Getting on the flow of this era,
and swing-by to the new world〜

What should we aim at in this confusing era
in which the materialistic society has reached its end?

Currently, various accumulated problems in the world have gradually become apparent, and many people cannot see their future vision in the confusion. However, it is very beneficial if you cannot see the vision. When you do not see clearly, you can trust in the bigger beings rather than your own thoughts!

When one cannot see things, s/he becomes uneasy and says “we do not know what will happen.” One feels fear of the unknown and tries to maintain the present conditions. However, the earth is constantly moving forward to the unknown place in the vast universal space at 30 km/ second. Even though we think the current place is the absolute, in the next moment, we will be in a totally different place. This is the substance and nature of this world which constantly keeps changing and transforming. The energy that comprises this world is enormous and we human beings can neither fully comprehend it nor fully attain it.

When a space probe goes to its destination, the method called “the swing-by” can be used. If the space probe tries to go to the destination with only its own energy, it would be necessary to generate additional vast energy to complete the journey. Instead, by using the gravity of the planets, the driving force of the space probe increases. By getting onto the planet’s revolution orbit, we can efficiently reach to the destination with the less fuel. In the same way, the current strongest driving force on this planet is the flow which has started from the “Winter Solstice of the milky way galaxy” on December 21, 2012. Having now transcended this winter solstice, that was the peak of darkness, the transition period has started. The time has come to swing-by to this vast flow of the era by getting out of this invisible confusion we human beings go through. The Earth summit is a great opportunity to have such a transition.

“Otona” is a person who has a will to make a good contribution to the world regardless of age. The Earth Summit is the place where people come together and discuss with each other, go beyond the boundaries of generation, country, and religion, and become a source of transmission to spread the network of awakening. On this 11th Summit, we would like to create the space for the people who are facing a dead-end or deadlock and would like to get out of that state to discover the new way of life together by expanding our worldview and unfolding the flow of the vast era. When one reaches a deadlock, it is a message from the universe that says “Please move forward to the new route.” When you can be released from your individual captivity and get on to the great flow, you will find an unseen new world ahead of you. Then, your one and only unique flower of life will bloom beautifully.
Why don’t you come together on this era, and swing-by to the new world?

This Is The Universe Project

Nut and Mind are high school students and One is a teacher from an alternative school in Thailand, and they have stayed at the Konohana Family for three months since May 27th. They will leave in 10 days to return to Thailand, however prior to leaving they had time to talk to Isadon. Two days before, at the children’s meeting, a dialogue between a Korean girl, Somin and Isadon was shared, so this time began with questions about the World War II.

One:
In Thailand, we do not study about the World War II in detail until we enter university. Therefore, Mind and Nut know about such a war; however, they do not know why it happened.

Mind:
Why did World War II happen?

Isadon:
In short, it is the result of human beings only thinking about themselves and even robbing other in an attempt to be rich.

Briefly explaining the flow of World War II, it started during the era from 15th to 17th century, which is called “The Age of Discovery”, when the European people colonized the world. An example of this era is how a country called the United States was formed through enslaving African people in order to build up an economy to become independent from England. In 1914 World War I began, and Germany, which was one of the most powerful countries at the time, was defeated in the war. The victorious countries expanded their right and interest in the world, and only Germany got poor. Out of this situation, Hitler appeared in Germany, advocated for the superiority of the Germanic race, appealed for an exclusion of Jewish people, and tried to reconstruct the Germanic race. In 1939, Germany invaded Poland, then World War II began.

In the meanwhile, the stage was being set after the Meiji era when Japan won the Japanese-Sino war and Japanese-Russian war, participated in World War I, gained global recognition, and attempted to join the strong countries of the world. After that, Japan involved themselves in World War II with Germany and Italy in the name of releasing Asian countries from the US and the UK. At that time, India was a colony of the UK, Vietnam was a colony of France and Indonesia was colony of the Netherlands. As for China, strong countries of the world flocked toward it in order to take concession. In that situation, Japan attempted to join the big countries and took over Korea and Taiwan. Later, Japan provoked the war with China with the name of integrating Asia. However, in reality, the purpose was to get concession for Japan. Then, the strong countries which colonized the world, such as the US and the UK, were in conflict with Japan since their concession would not be shared with Japan, and they imposed an economic blockade. In this way, Japan’s oil resources were cut off, they faced an economic deadlock, and entered to the World War II.

However, Japan did not start the war by itself. At that time, the biggest industrialized country, Germany was developed in Europe through Nazism, but it was isolated internationally. Later, a totalitarian state was established in Italy by Mussolini as fascism, but it was also isolated internationally like Germany. So Germany, Italy and Japan became tied together in a military alliance.

Some objectively minded people considered that the national power of Japan could not win over the US. However, as the military alliance between Japan, Germany, and Italy grew their respective governments were suppressed from opposing war. In fact, Germany occupied Eastern Europe and France and even expanded the war field in Africa. But when the war field expanded too much, it became difficult to replenish necessary goods for the army. As a result, the military alliance of the three countries were defeated. Italy surrendered first, Germany surrendered next, and Japan surrendered in the end. It is told that 7-9 million German people died, 10-20 million Chinese, 21-28 million Russians died, and in total 60-85 million people died. This shows that 2.5% of the world population at that time were victims of the war.

Japan, Germany and Italy were defeated in this way, and the allied powers won World War II. When Japan was about to lose, the Yalta Conference was held, which included Churchill from the UK, Roosevelt from the US., and Stalin from Russia. During this meeting, they discussed which victorious country would take which defeated countries when the war had finished. However originally, the US, European countries such as Portugal, Spain and the Netherlands colonized all over the world. As a result, when World War II occurred, their respective national strength fell and those colonized countries were freed. In this sense, World War II did not have all negative influences.

The atomic bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki became the triggers to closing the War. However, that led to a polarization of strong countries, with communism in the Soviet Union, and capitalism in the US, which produced the cold war era. Immediately from this influence, the Korean War started, and the Korean Peninsula was divided into North Korea and South Korea. In the long run, this became a proxy war for the US against communist countries like the Soviet Union and China. Next, the same thing had occurred in the Vietnam War. In Cambodia, the neighboring country to Thailand, there was the Khmer Rouge massacre, but they were also communist forces. Moreover, the Jews who lived in Europe migrated to the US through German persecution, they brought their superior scientific technology, and at the same time the capital of Judea was used to found Israel. There is a story called Lawrence of Arabia, and during World War I, the UK promised a Jewish state in the Middle East; however Lawrence of Arabian was a spy from the UK.

One:
However, he is described as a hero, isn’t he?

Isadon:
That’s because the story was drawn by the western countries. They have created Israel, a Jewish state in a region were the Arab people originally lived. Many Jews who settled there were those who once lived in the Soviet Union. So collective farm communities, such as Sovkhoz and kolkhoz, became the basis for the current Kibbutz (collective agricultural community) in Israel.

One:
Oh, I did not know that!

Isadon:
I have briefly explained about the background of World War II, in fact there are so many cruel events that occurred and many people died. That kind of national character has not changed and still continues today.

Therefore, even after World War II ended, there are many stories related to exploitation and colonization which have led to the Middle-East wars (i.e. the Gulf War, the Iraq War, the War in Afghanistan, and the current development of I.S). The developed nations have continued to search for national benefits, which have become the dominate forces of the world. The victorious countries of the past, that have led the world with the illusion of justice, are now being revealed as gratifying their own desires based on savage laws and partnerships.

One-chan:
Because the US does not want to end the war, does it?

Isadon:
That is right. By now, the US was on the side of justice; however, the US moves based in its own rights and interests. The US seems to be involved in most of the recent wars in the world, such as the Iran & Iraq Wars.

One-chan:
The power of the US comes from selling guns and arms, right?

Isadon:
President Obama went to Vietnam and had a business meeting to sell them arms before he came to the Ise-Shima Summit that was held in Japan this past May. Later, he visited Hiroshima and gave the speech to say “Let’s make a world without nuclear weapons”.

Mind:
Why did President Obama go to Vietnam to sell arms and come to Japan to talk about peace??

One:
Because he is a politician!!

Isadon:
Politicians always think of their national benefit, and they are chosen based on the rights and interests of their country. Therefore, they are not necessarily superior people even though they are at a socially high position. That is because the current people are always search for their own benefit. Then, Isadon is aiming to build a world in which each one of us are awakened, who can become a superior person based on harmony, think of the earth as a one country, and create a world together rather than creating a country only representing the rights and interests of individual desires.

A peaceful world can still be created if Isadon could represent us, because he does not think of himself first. That attitude is the same as the divine. The Divine creates this world in an autocratic way; however, the Divine leaves this world for his/her own creation. Therefore, when human beings feel the will of the Divine, an ideal world will be created any time.

Nut:
Why can the corrupted politicians hold power in the world?

Isadon: That is because human beings put priority on their own benefit, and choose politicians who are beneficial to themselves. For example, a money making world can only be established when people are greedy. Currently Japan seems peaceful; however, it is like having a war every day with moneymaking and competition. In addition, the US capitalist companies, such as McDonalds, KFC, and Seven-eleven infest the world, and the financial system of the world is dominated by the US right now.

When I speak about World War II, the story does not end as a single story. Before that, there was World War I, and more stories continued from the previous era, and even after World War II, this story of human greed continues.

Mind:
If World War Ⅲ occurs, there will be no place for us to live…

Isadon:
Before you worry about the possibility of World War Ⅲ occurring, the earth has been giving humans messages through earthquakes and volcanic activities. We have faced the winter solstice of the galaxy from 25,800 years on December 21st, 2012, and now the era shows that it is changing greatly.

Today, the Japanese emperor announced his feelings and showed his intention to abdicate the throne before he passes away. The Japanese imperial system has continued for 2,600 years. In such a meaning, it is said that Japan is the world’s oldest nation, based on the same bloodline. However, it is just 2,600 years, so it is only one-tenth of one solar spiral of 25,800 years. So far, 59 Japanese emperors have retired out of 125. Therefore, living retirement is not rare in the Japanese history. However, it has been 200 years from the previous one, so I sense the fact that the current emperor announced his feelings at this timing as an important sign from the viewpoint of the era.

The peak of darkness arrived on December 21st, 2012 and the dawn of the galaxy ended on the day of the summer solstice on June 21st, 2016. We are going toward the era of light, so the Japanese emperor sensed the shift of the era, and felt like this. This is a great event from a universal viewpoint. Moreover, looking at the 248-year cycle of Pluto, we can see the transition of the Imperial succession interlocks with the era based on the relationship between the sun and the Pluto.

Therefore, now that we have faced the great turning point of the universe, we can predict that big disasters will come to Japan. Of course, they will come all over the world, but they will come to Japan first ahead of other countries.

One:
Do you mean natural disasters?

Isadon:
In various ways. The current situation is happening so that Japanese people can restore the original spirit of Yamato. Now, Japanese people’s spirits have been polluted by the US, so such disasters are necessary in order for the Japanese people to become aware of the spirit of Yamato. Then, the Japanese emperor who is getting old has sensed with his intuition that it is getting difficult to accomplish a heavy duty like before, so he has been thinking of giving the throne to the young Crown Prince. The emperor is called “Ten (divine) No (emperor)” in Japanese, so I feel he has sensed the “divine will” with intuition. In such a meaning, his announcement shows the arrival of a universally new era.

Now that we have faced the great turning point from 25,800 years ago, we have entered an era when each one of us will become awakened, from the era when kings and saints governed people. The Japanese emperors have offered rituals with the divine in order to govern the nation. However, the era has arrived when each one of us connects with the divine and thinks of how to operate the earth. It is the arrival of the era when each one of us becomes aware of the consciousness of the “celestial being.”

In order to awaken human minds, which prioritize gratifying their own desires with an expanded ego, the universe and the earth will continue to give humans a severe environment in the form of disasters. That is because the more severe the environment becomes, the more humans will remember to help each other.

One:
The big flood which happened in Thailand two years ago is a good example. Because of this natural disaster, people got together and helped each other.

Isadon:
Especially Japanese people are known as ones who support each other and maintain order in case of such disasters like earthquakes. If Thai people also have such a tendency, this might come from the Buddhist spirit.

What I would like to convey the most is we can create a heaven on earth if we try to enhance our spirituality, transcend our ego and gain a great spirit, without receiving such severe messages. In such a meaning, don’t you think the Konohana way of living can be a model of the next era? When you return to Thailand, I would like you to create such a place there, too.

Mind:
It is very difficult!

Isadon:
Never give up!!

Will you live with a low consciousness, saying it is difficult? Or, will you aim for a higher consciousness and live without giving up? Which would you choose? When your ego is prioritized, you will live with a low consciousness. When you look toward the divine, and depend on the divine, you will be able to live with a high consciousness. It is just up to you if you can accomplish it or not.

Mine:
What Isadon is saying is true. It is just up to us if we live with a high consciousness or give up. When I look at the Konohana Family members, they are trying to live their daily life to become a model. If I feel like giving up, I will remember everyone here. No matter how difficult this way of life is, everyone here has been trying to live with a high consciousness. Therefore, we should not give up easily!

I sometimes have mixed feelings. I want to help people, but my friends are very stubborn. So, I feel they deserve it.

Isadon:
You do not have to think of achieving that. The most important thing is that you live with a high consciousness. Today, we talked about World War II. As a matter of fact, nobody wanted to do such a war. However, nobody could stop it and humans had to experience such a horrible matter. In a sense, the era was necessary.

Now, the era has shifted from that of conflicts to that of integration. The divine and the era is for those who have realized this. Many modern people cannot understand the pioneers of an era, but the divine is for them. That is why, they can become a person to accomplish an important mission in this world. Such people are called, a “celestial being.” Therefore, it is important what kind of spirit we have. Then, the flow of the era carries us into the next one.

You have come here with a very deep connection with us. This connection does not end at this time. This is just a beginning for us to accomplish an important mission together.

One:
The reason why I am crying now is that I feel like I am a stubborn student and was hit by a great teacher! So, I should work harder.

Isadon:
First of all, it is essential for you to become flexible.

One:
I feel it is very difficult.

Isadon:
That is because you make yourself a top priority. It would be good if you can live for other people.

One:
What you say is always right, so there is no room to discuss with you. No matter how difficult it is, I should do it. In a sense, I feel like I am a wild animal, and Isadon is a hunter and caught me. So, I cannot escape anymore!

Isadon:
Do you know what will happen next?? We will welcome you as our family and live together happily♪

One:
Wow! Thank you!!

Isadon:
This is not a project just for you. This is not a project for Japan and Thailand, either. This is the story of earth and a universal project.

You came here and thought, “The Konohana Family is a great place!” Therefore, you should not think, “I cannot do this in Thailand!” when you return there. Now, the divine project has begun. The era has arrived when stubborn people like you will become awakened instantly. The era has passed the great turning point already.

The divine is for us. The era flows the way it is. The important thing is that we live with a high consciousness.

Exploring This World from “Blood”

 ~ System of the Universe ~

Nut and Mind are high school students and One is a teacher from Mab-ueng School of Sufficiency Economy, an alternative school in Thailand. They have been staying in Konohana Family for three months since May 27th. As a part of the program to expand their worldview, they have had four occasions to deepen their understanding with the theme of “Food” for four times. In the 4th session, they had the opportunity of exploring the “blood” of this world with the theme of “Spiritual Evolution”.

Spiritual Evolution -2

 

Isadon:
Do you say Shinzou 「心臓」(heart) as “organ of heart” in English?

Yoko:
Shinzou「心臓」 (heart) is called “heart” in English.

Isadon:
Heart also means Kokoro 「心」(mind and spirit), doesn’t it?

Yoko:
In English both Kokoro 「心」and Shinzou「心臓」 are described as the same term, heart.

Isadon:
That is the same, isn’t it? How do you describe Shinzou 「心臓」(heart) in Thai?

One:
Kokoro 「心」is described as “Jitwinyan” and Shinzou 「心臓」(organ) is described as “Huajai”. The word, “Huajai” relates to Kokoro「心」.

Isadon:
That means both Kokoro「心」and Shinzou 「心臓」relate to 「心」(heart). In English both words are in common.

Shinzou「心臓」means center of the organ and it sends blood all over the body and the body functions. This is the same structure for the earth, the solar system and the universe. In terms of the solar system, the heart plays the role of the Sun. Therefore, depending on what the sun releases, movement of other planets are found. That is how the solar system operates.

In our body, when your mind gets excited, your heart beats a lot. Therefore, depending on whether your emotional state is excited or calm, an order goes to the heart, and how the blood is sent influences our activities. If your diet is unbalanced, the quality of your blood goes down. Putting a burden on your heart means polluting the person’s life and leads your life in a wrong direction.

Mind:
My teacher One supplementally explained “In order to live healthily, it is necessary to have a heart with goodwill and peace. If you get angry and irritated, your emotional ups and downs are erratic, your health is also like being on a roller coaster, ups and downs become erratic and cannot be healthy.” By hearing that, I feel I was slapped in the face.

Isadon:
It is important to choose good food in order to not to become a burden to your body, and keep your mind calm to judge things correctly. In any case, polluting blood caused by “Kokoro 「心」” will pollute your blood in your life habits. By polluting your blood, it influences other parts of organs and becomes unhealthy, and finally, this will result in death with stoppage of the heart. Therefore, it is important to maintain a beautiful body, a beautiful heart, and a beautiful life which do not pollute blood.

Human blood is a life itself, and that circulates life and distributes it to all equally. If the blood was polluted, pollution will be distributed to everywhere. And if the blood tube which is a passage of blood was crushed, the further parts from that point will be rotten.

Nut:
It is a very easy conclusion!

Isadon:
In fact, in the human society, there is a thing that circulates like blood and connects everything equally. What do you think of “blood of human society”?

Nut:
Isadon gives us a good question!

Isadon:
Ha, ha, ha.

Nut:
In a society, we influence each other by our activities and communication. I think if one group is not happy in the society, their unhappy vibrancy will be passed on to other groups by their words and actions, thus the current unhappy society is created. That caused by our thinking and actions. Therefore, it is necessary to think and act consciously in order to not to spread bad vibrancy to the society.

Isadon:
If we compare that to our body, the blood carries our heart as habit and expresses it. Human society is one creature in this case. So, what would be the thing which plays the role of blood which is equally distributed to the society?

What Nut expressed right now is the pollution of blood. There is a thing that carries pollution and beauty in the human society. That turns into polluted or beautiful things depending on the human mind. Our blood also becomes dirty or beautiful depending on our own heart, doesn’t it?

Three Thai people:
(They thought for a while)We give up!!

Isadon:
OK, I will give you the answer. (Laugh) That is “Money”.

One:
I also thought that is “ego”.

Isadon:
“Ego” is carried by money. Originally, money exists as a social system to distribute to everyone equally; however, there is some money that is kept in one place and not distributed equally. When the blood gets polluted in our body, it is purified through kidney and liver. In the same way, there is dirty money in the world that is used for crimes and wars. People’s heart can purify that kind of money.

Nut:
I understand why people do money laundering.

Isadon:
That is right. Well, I give you the next question. What do you think the “blood of the earth”? What is the most important thing for the circulation of life of the earth?

One:
Air or water?

Mind:
I think that is water.

Nut:
I think that is the natural system.

Isadon:
That is “water”. Water healthily carries the system of nature. That is the same as blood in our body.

Mind:
We, each human being, are the cells of the earth, if there is no water, the earth will die and as a cell, we will die out.

Isadon:
If so, the natural ecological network will not be maintained. When the water is polluted, the pollution will spread to all other lives.

One:
Our king also said the same thing, “Water is life”.

Isadon:
Well, the next question♪ What plays the role of the heart that circulates water which is the blood for the earth?

Nut:
I cannot respond if I do not concentrate to think since Isadon’s questions are becoming more and more difficult! It is more difficult than the national university entrance examination.

Isadon:
Since this is an important question, please think seriously. This is a very important matter.

Nut:
Isadon, please give us a hint!

Isadon:
That is given equally to all lives.

Nut:
Is that time?

Mind:
Is that soil??

Isadon:
Before the soil.

Mind:
It must be microorganisms!

Isadon:
That makes life to circulate and to nurture.
Here is the hint! That falls down from the sky.

Nut:
Is that rain?

Isadon:
The rain is also made of it. That is the most important thing for life.

Mind:
Is that spirit?

Isadon:
If the blood for the earth is water, will the water circulate as blood does? In our body, the system for circulating our blood is the heart. If so, what takes the role to circulate the water which is the blood of the earth? That falls down from the sky equally to everyone. That is the most important for life and also more important than water.

One:
Energy?

Isadon:
Yes, it is energy, but that is the source of energy.

Three Thai people:
We do not know ~!! (Laugh)

Isadon:
Do you give up? (Laugh) If you hear that answer, you will totally “understand!!” ♪ That is the source of all lives. That is the Sun.

Nut&Mind:
Ah~! (Laugh)

One:
However, the sun does not fall down to the earth, does it??

Isadon:
The sun light falls down to the earth and the sun will circulate the water. The sun light itself will not get polluted. Receiving the sun light, circulating blood of water, air and soil will get polluted

Well, I have a next question!! If the blood of the earth is water and its heart is the sun, what would be the “blood of the solar system”?

Mind:
I will think harder …

Isadon:
If you think it is difficult. Just imagine how the solar system is structured.

Mind:
Is that star?

Isadon:
That makes stars cooperate and circulate.

One: :
Is that the movement of each planet?

Isadon:
That is the source that creates them and makes them cooperate. Do you all give up? (Laugh)

Mind:
I give up!

Nut:
Is that the force of magnetic field?

Isadon:
Yes, it is! That is the “magnetic field”.  The solar magnetic field makes cooperation and circulation possible in the solar system. Well, this is the last question. What do you think is the “blood of the universe”?

What consolidates the whole universe is “the Spirit”. In this sense, the Spirit is the massive spirit, and existence of soul. That is the divine.

Today, I talked about blood of human body, blood of human society, blood of the earth, blood of the solar system, and blood of the universe. The blood of human society is money, the blood of the earth is water, the blood of the solar system is magnetic field, and the blood of the universe is the spirit.

As the scale is getting larger and larger, the materialistic staff will vanish and only the spiritual element will remain. As the thing minimizes to our body size, its density increases and becomes a physical matter. As the size becomes smaller and smaller, the physical matter vanishes and only spiritual matter remains. As it goes back to “KA”, the extreme smallest particle of the universe, the being as a phenomenon will vanish.

This means, our body describes the best condition to see the state of our heart (Kokoro). The state of the blood exactly shows our state of spirit (Kokoro). Pollution of blood has a physical element and a spiritual element. Money, the blood of the society also has physical pollution and spiritual pollution. Thus, everything is in the same system.

That is why if one’s spirit (Kokoro) is beautiful, the blood of the person is beautiful, and the person is physically healthy and lives a good life.

 

The Time When Everyone Lives as a Specialist in Exploring Spirituality

Have you ever heard of Yuzuru Hanyu? He is a 21-year-old Japanese male figure skater and currently ranks at the top in the world. He got a gold medal in the 2014 Winter Olympics, and amazingly marked the world record of 330.43 in the Grand Prix of Figure Skating Finals; held in Barcelona, Spain in December, 2015! He broke the score of 300 for the first time in history, whereas before reaching a score of 280 would secure the gold. When he broke the world record, it was said, “A miracle has happened!” and “He has reached the Divine state.”

What is a difference between him and us? He is just an ordinary young man in a sense. The difference is that he has removed all restraint.

This year, an 18-year-old Japanese male figure skater named Shoma Uno accomplished a quadruple flip officially for the first time at the Team Challenge Cup, which was held in Spokane, US. In this manner, the current best record continues to be updated. When someone achieves something new, the old goal is updated and the new world-record holder becomes the goal for everyone. Then, everyone’s restraints are removed. This world continues with such a succession.

However, many people have a strange mind such as “I cannot do this!” or “I am not good enough!” In a meaning, it is the way they are. But…

Aren’t you confining yourself with such assumption?

The truth is that your life goal has no limit. It is you that create these limits. People tend to think like “I am such a person” and try not to do more than that.

If we would like to bloom our potential, we need to remove such hindrance. When most people have an experience, they begin to determine themselves based on that. However, an experience is for removing the resistance. Nevertheless, people own their experiences due to their ego, make them a common knowledge, and continue to be in such a narrow frame. However, the future exists for us to transcend our past experiences. Therefore, it is all right to utilize them, but we should not fix upon them and reach a conclusion based on them beforehand.

This is how to transcend our ego.

Now that we have entered the 21st century, young professionals in various fields including figure skating like Yuzuru Hanyu and Shoma Uno have appeared and blossomed their own potential to expand the human possibility further.

However, here is a little concern. Does the expansion of human potential contribute to humanity or for the livelihood of the Earth? Looking at the current society, many people have a narrow worldview and set their goal only to blossom their own ability. A new era has arrived for sure, but still it is expressed on individual desires. A 15-year-old Japanese genius programmer named Soto Yamauchi, who got first prize at the age of 11 as the youngest in an international programming contest, said, “I would like to contribute to human evolution and think it is cool to advance the human path, rather than become a billionaire!” His passion is the exact goal for humans to achieve in the 21st century.

The time has arrived when humans live with such a broad worldview. No matter how high your ability is, if it does not match with the universal structure or the flow of the era, your high ability becomes a seed for problems in your life and for this world.

Many people who want to create a community have visited the Konohana Family. The important message for them is: This world consists of a circulation of infinite lives. Therefore, a community is not to be created, but simply emerges with the era. When the era is expressed, each one of us is given an appropriate role to express the era, and then we are born on Earth. So, a community cannot be created because you want to do so. On the contrary, those who are eager to create a community express their strong ego. Therefore, it can be said that they are unsuitable for that.

In fact, many of these people cannot see their reality. In this manner, certainly the time has arrived when human consciousness should change.

Various contradictions have piled up in the current human society. However, the truth is that there is no mistake in this world. There is no right or wrong. IF there is a problem, it would be “ignorance (it is written as 無知 meaning “no wisdom” in Japanese).” It is a root cause of all problems. It is the ignorance at the origin of this world, as well as our own existence.

On the contrary, what kind of person would be with “wisdom”? As 無 also means infinity, it is the one who has infinite wisdom. So, it is the person who accumulates experiences infinitely, gains wisdom, and continues to evolve. When people reach such a state, the human consciousness to gratify individual desires will disappear, and they will live as the universal being.

In order to do so, what kind of attitude should we humans take? Originally, we were born to accomplish a mission given by the era, and play a role given by this world. This is the exact meaning for our existence. The individual exists for the whole, and the whole makes the individual exist. Only when these two become consistent, will both individual health and true peace prevail on earth.

When will humans be aware of such a truth? President Obama visited Hiroshima on May 27th. Hopefully, he will visit Nagasaki next time. Now, this has been a very significant topic which that the whole world has paid attention to. The fact that he has suddenly decided to visit Hiroshima indicates that the era is moving forward very quickly. He did not visit Hiroshima for the convenience of Japan or the US. Clearly, this is a sign that the era is facing the next stage.

That is why the young generation with unprecedented talents has appeared recently. They have ignored the common knowledge of the past, including ideas such as “this is the current world record, so there will not be another,” removed such limitations, and have been exploring such a new world.

Then, what kind of role has been given to the Konohana Family, and what kind of switch have we turned off? It is to turn off the switch of the “ego”. Because we have turned off the switch of the ego, our current lifestyle has been possible. We have already lived for more than 20 years, sharing one wallet and all belongings with everyone in the community. Moreover, we cherish and scold other people’s children as our own. How many people in this world can do such a thing? A world without any boundaries has been already achieved here!

However, the range of the ego is diverse from something rough to something fine. Therefore, as a spiritual specialist who faces the ego seriously every day, and removes it beautifully, we will continue to seek this path where people might think, “Oh my goodness! Can humans do that??” We are a specialist in exploring spirituality, and live as a model for the future of humanity.

The era surely removes restriction and continues to move forward. Therefore, removing the limitations of the “ego” is the true figure of our life and our purpose. Now, the era has entered the stage where everyone lives as a specialist in exploring spirituality.

Those who can prioritize removing limitation can live with the era, and contribute to the whole of humanity, and the era.
