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.

 

Konohana Family Newsletter vol.99 – KATAKAMUNA

The Cosmic Wisdom that will Return in the Modern Era
To Give a New Perspective to People who Live in these Chaotic Times

KATAKAMUNA

The World You See is Just the Tip of the Iceberg
Modern society has achieved a remarkable development due to scientific evolution, seeking more abundance and more comforts. Human wishes have generated new technologies one after another, changed the world for their convenience, and their living has become very convenient and comfortable. However, the more desires humans have gratified, the more one-sided desires they have expanded, ignoring nature. Humans’ activities to gratify their desires have brought a lot of contradictions upon the earth.
Global warming, due to consuming a huge amount of natural resources, has brought abnormal climate everywhere. Currently, it is ordinary to have tremendous snowfall in winter and huge typhoons and heavy flooding in summer. Moreover, various pollutants which have been discharged from a comfortable lifestyles are widespread in the environment. Therefore, it is said that it is impossible to purify radioactive waste and micro plastics. While people are seeking material abundance, bonds among people have been lost. People have conflicts, and so do nations. Disparity, declining birthrates, and an aging population have advanced. Furthermore, crimes which express anxiety and irritation of the whole society have frequently occurred. All of these phenomena have emerged as a result of what we humans have done so far. And now, the era has begun when humans have no choice but to face this fact finally, and although they have created these phenomena, they have turned away from the root cause.

For the coming era, it will be very severe to live, but there is something to bring us a viewpoint to make a breakthrough in this dead end, which cannot be solved by science any longer. It is Katakamuna.

As for the iceberg which is floating in the ocean, what emerges above the ocean is just 10% of the whole, and the rest of the 90% lies hidden below sea level. We can apply this to the world where we live, too. “The visible world” which the modern people sense with five senses is just the tip of the iceberg of this whole world. “The invisible world” which supports the existence of “the visible world” spreads behind “the visible world.” This combination of “the visible world” and “the invisible world” is called “GENSHO-KAI (the phenomenal world).” On top of that, there is a fundamental world which becomes the source of all existences of this world, behind GENSHO-KAI. This is called “SENSHO-KAI (the potential world of the source).”
The iceberg sometimes flows toward a different direction from the wind’s direction which blows over the sea. It is because the wind’s direction which can be sensed on land is different from the direction of ocean currents which move the iceberg in the ocean. This world operates by a huge invisible flow which cannot be classified by modern science. When we put our consciousness toward this flow, we will be able to see that a great will which operates this world exists. The fact that Katakamuna, which has been sealed for a long time, has returned in the modern era is also according to this majestic flow.
Now, let us guide you to the Katakamuna world, which unravels the whole picture of this world!

 

The Cosmophysics Civilization of 13,000 Years Ago

Katakamuna is an advanced cosmophysics and civilization which is said to have flourished in East Asia about 13,000 years ago when the solar system was in the peak of light. Katakamuna declined along with the flow of the era when the solar system moved from the peak of light to that of darkness, and the material civilization, in which people began to seek fulfillment through material existence. In such a situation, Katakamuna vanished from the center stage of history for a long time. However, in 1949, a physicist named Satsuki Narasaki encountered an old man during a geological survey of the ground in the Rokko Mountains, Hyogo Prefecture, and the old man showed “the Katakamuna literature.” From there, this wisdom became unraveled in the modern era.

 

The System which Infinitely Circulates
through a Qualitative Shift (NA) between
KATA and KAMU


The world where we live consists of GENSHO-KAI (the phenomenal world) which is the combination of “the visible world” and “the invisible world” and SENSHO-KAI (the potential world of the source) which is behind GENSHO-KAI and supports it. People who lived in the Katakamuna era sensed this existence of SENSHO-KAI with intuition.
SENSHO-KAI is the world of vibrancy which becomes the source of all phenomena, lives, and substances which emerge in GENSHO-KAI. This vibrancy is not what we can hear with our physical ears, but it fills the whole cosmos as the source of all existences. No distortion or turbidity exists throughout this nature. People who lived in the Katakamuna era sensed the vibrancy of this cosmic creation with intuition, classified it into 48 sounds through articulating syllables, and expressed them as symbols, which are called eight-span mirror letters. It is said that these 48 sounds became the origin of the current Japanese language.

The Katakamuna No. 5 & No. 6 Chants as Expressed by Eight-Span Mirror Letters

Each of these 48 sounds has an original meaning (SHINEN, meaning the source of thoughts) as an element which composes the universe. The ancient Katakamuna people created 80 chants (or 120 chants according to another theory) by combining these pure sounds in order to express how the world came into existence. More importantly, chants No. 5 and No. 6 begin with “HI HU MI YO I MA WA LI TE ME KU LU MU NA YA KO TO” which express the physics of creation, development, and disappearance of the universe, and the process of creating phenomena, which is indicated by the principle of numbers. Moreover, many of the chants are related to the original meaning of sex. The Katakamuna people had sex which is the fundamental system of life generation, through instinctively sensing the vibrancy of great cosmic life by TAIKO-HASSEI (an emergence when opposite qualities such as yin and yang face each other), such as between a man and a woman. They enhanced their own intuitions by resonating with the vibrancy of the cosmic source, and survived in an era which was of a very strict environment by utilizing a right life intuition. People of that time sensed the vibrancy of the source with the cells of their whole bodies (body and soul) instead of thinking with brain, they received guidance from the stars, had dialogue with nature, and lived based on the principle of life within the great cosmic circulation. This world of vibrant source, which is SENSHO-KAI is called the world of “KAMU (= God).” When everything matches with each other and the world of the pure vibrancy without any distortion becomes full of thoughts (SHINEN), and thoughts overflow, it will become beautiful distortion, emerge as GENSHO-KAI, and become a life. GENSHO-KAI, in which the network of various lives is expressed, is the world of “KATA (=forms, shapes). All existences emerge from the world of KAMU to that of KATA, and when they complete their roles, they will return to the world of KAMU again. They continue to circulate infinitely through a qualitative shift “NA (= transform into a new thing) between the two worlds. This system of great circulation between KATA and KAMU is “KATAKAMUNA.”

 

Modern Society has Reached the Peak of Pollution

Phenomena of this world consist of vibrancy, and all existences have their unique vibrancies. People who lived the Katakamuna lifestyle sensed the vibrancies and classified them into 48 sounds. They instinctively recognized the meanings hidden behind these existences by combining each sound and making words. As infinite harmony is created from the heptatonic scale (Harmonic Octaves) of C D E F G A B C, the uniqueness of various lives are expressed (named) appropriately by a combination of the 48 pure sounds, which have developed as a beautiful network in the natural world. However, people who live in the modern era have ignored each unique vibrancy and have been compelled by their desires, by using their high self-realization ability which cannot be seen in any other living being. As a result, they have manifested events which are appropriate to their own actions. Then, they have ended up creating an extraneous world which is far from the fundamental vibrancy which had created the universe.

The modern people who have been tainted with scientific thoughts in the modern era do not recognize an existence which they cannot perceive as three-dimensional phenomena. They are just conscious of “the visible world” out of the world of multiple structures. When insects eat crops, people use agricultural chemicals and kill them. Also, when people become sick, doctors prescribe medicines just to suppress their symptoms. In this manner, modern people have piled up contradictions in the world by not facing the root cause of the problem and repeating superficial measures. As a result, “the visible world” in the modern era is full of artificially distorted vibrations, which appears as a great impasse.

“The visible world” is a world of subjectivity. People’s consciousness is always “self-centered.” They do not objectively perceive what their actions have brought to the world. Moreover, even activists to promote peace and environmental conservation insist on justice through their own beliefs, and end up bringing about conflicts to the world. In contrast, “the invisible world” which is behind “the visible world” is a world of objectivity. Just like when bacteria purify water when it is polluted in the natural world, what has been distorted and polluted in “the visible world” will be purified through natural circulation including “the invisible world”, and all will become healthy. This is the original system. However, human activities in the modern era have generated pollution which is beyond the capacity of natural purification. Therefore, we have reached the stage where it is impossible to purify pollution only in the circulation of GENSHO-KAI (the phenomenal world) anymore. This infinite circulation system is universal circulation, which returns the distorted and polluted world that modern people’s consciousness cannot solve, to its original healthy state.

 

Live with Our Whole Soul and Body in the Universe

GENSHO-KAI consists of an infinite chain of causes and effects. When we perceive this infinite chain as one story, the existence of the great will, which expresses this story, will be seen behind it. This is called the objective background, which is the source of the system which makes the world exist and operate. This is also far beyond human intellect.

The world repeatedly changes, transforms and transfigures over the course of time, which never stops, and continues to move toward an unknown future. People who lived in the Katakamuna era sensed each moment with their whole soul and body, instantly judged what was necessary to survive in the environment, which was changing with every moment, and wove their lives into the fabric of life. They did not have fixed thinking, and lived in the moment, changing themselves just along with the change of the world. This continuation of changes is evolution, the figure of a beautiful life, and the original energy of life.

The whole soul and body means that billions of cells which compose the holistic body become parabolic antennas, the brain does not think but rather, the whole body senses the vibrancy, which penetrates life, and then expresses these vibrations through an attitude of words and actions. We do not live alone as a life in this world. First of all, there is the great universe, within which there is our galaxy, our solar system, our global ecosystem, and humanity. Then, each one of us exists. We live under this order of life, and all living beings exist based on the fundamental principle of the universe which is the original source.

DNA in the cells of animals and plants in the natural world respond to the universe without ego, so their life activities automatically reflect the cosmic system without being taught, and become a beautiful expression. In contrast, out of all living beings, only human beings have become a creature which has thoughts over the process of evolution. Because they were given an ability to realize their thoughts by ego, they have become prisoners of pleasure who gratify their desires, have enlarged their egos, and have forgotten that they are an existence that responds to the universe. Now, modern people have polluted the life world and even destroyed it by deviating from the fundamental principle of the universe.

In order for human beings to respond to the universe again, we need to return our thoughts from ego. We can align our thoughts with the universe by controlling our egos, instead of being controlled by it. Then, DNA in the cells of our whole bodies plays the role as an antenna which interacts with the universe. When we live as a life force, the cells of our whole body are already equipped with the life principles. Women express their lives as women, and men do so as men, and fulfill their lives. In the same way, information from the beginning of the universe to the end is asleep in our DNA which is a part of cosmic life. A blueprint of the future is within, and when we live as a life force, we engrave our experiences into our DNA to continue as wisdom for the next era.

When we release ourselves from the constraints of our ego, we will be able to live out true freedom. Analyzing the SHINEN (the source of thoughts) of “KUNI (which means a country in general Japanese)” by Katakamuna, it is not a territory which is divided by borders. It indicates a place where freedom (KU) has been established (NI). The true meaning of living out KUNI is to release ourselves, talk to the universe with our whole body and soul, and receive messages from the universe with our whole being.

Then, a pure and beautiful vibrancy of the cosmic source will emit from within you, and resound in this world. This vibrancy will resolve the distortion of the world, and give energy to all lives. As a result, something broken will be automatically recovered and return to normal. It is the world of universal circulation, expressed as Katakamuna.

 

Katakamuna People who Live in the Modern Era

It is said that the diameter of the Milky Way galaxy, where we exist, is about 100,000 light years. It means that it takes 100,000 years for light, which is the fastest observable nature currently and standard of modern physics, to move from one edge to the other within the galaxy. That is, it has a limit, so the universe cannot be unraveled by scientific observation.

However, in fact, there is something which is far beyond the speed of light and can instantly perceive the universe in this world. It is SHINEN (the source of thoughts) which is equipped with us. SHINEN is the emanation of the soul, which instantly runs through the universe at the speed of AMAHAYAMI (meaning the speed of SHINEN, 10-64 x the speed of light). The universe is also an existence which has a soul, and maintains the vast cosmic space which cannot be perceived by science and order of AMAHAYAMI. Katakamuna people did not have advanced observatory equipment or data, but they sensed the reality of the universe and lived. If we humans, having the same SHINEN as the universe, become aware of source consciousness, which maintains cosmic order and resonates with this dimension, we can become an existence who operates the universe with the consciousness of the original source.

The universe is an infinite chain of information. Opposite qualities surely exist at the same time (TAIKO-HASSEI) in the universe, so big is small and small is big. There is no right or wrong. There is only information of what happens from our perspective, based on the principle of cause and effect.  However, human beings invented paper and letters along over the emergence of various civilizations. Then, we began to two-dimensionally interpret this world which is originally multi-dimensional, and perceive things based on dualistic thinking such as good or bad, right or wrong. As a result, we came to fix specific matters, thinking “this is right,” and stand at a position of “I know the right answer.”

Science subdivides things and explores the divided parts very sharply. Therefore, the whole picture can be perceived by connecting them all. If we make a specific matter absolute, we will get an answer only from there, which ends up generating a fixed concept. This surely creates contradictions in the world which changes, transforms and transfigures. The reason why human beings fix a specific matter as the right answer is that this is humanity’s nature of wanting to be the one who knows the right answer. By standing at a position of “I know it,” human beings have become arrogant, forgotten that we are given life by this world, and deviated from the original meaning of why we exist in the universe.

No matter how much we believe we understand, it is impossible for us to reach the edge of the galaxy or create even one life. All existences in this world have been created with cosmic wisdom, and there is nothing which human beings can create through our own power.

Once upon a time, wisdom was floating in the universe. The wisdom received the request of the era and became SHINEN which causes phenomena. This is the beginning of the manifestation of this world. As the beginning was wisdom, we humans and all other existence in GENSHO-KAI will return to the wisdom again sooner or later. Then, all phenomena will become emptiness.

In order to understand this, human beings should stop standing at a side of “I know about this world” and stand at a side of “I am given life by this world.” Then, cosmic wisdom will automatically enter us. The universe continues to change, transform, and transfigure, and even truth continues to change along with the era. Therefore, we do not need to think “This is all correct” with the current Katakamuna interpretation. It is not to be fixed as knowledge, but to master it, resonate with the fundamental vibrancy of great cosmic life, and sense the great flow that is invisible and operates this world. It will be more and more difficult to live in the coming era. In this change of the era, you are currently encountering information to sense each moment and master your ability to survive.

The universe is information. Living is encountering a chain of information such as “This happens when you do this” based on the principle of cause and effect. Katakamuna is telling us this fundamental principle. However, there is a world in which this principle does not apply in the universe. We are under the law of the Milky Way galaxy which exists by TAIKO-HASSEI of time and space, based on the principle of cause and effect. If we go to another galaxy, there is another law. When we perceive the universe in this manner, a part of our brain which has not been used will begin to function. Then, our viewpoint will change. When it changes, people will be released from their ego and become free.

Currently, the era is about to change greatly. Although the era is about to change, human beings have not changed. Therefore, society has not changed, and the gap between our thoughts and reality is appearing as appropriate phenomena, which is our current society in this modern era. Various phenomena which are occurring in society are telling us that we have been given a great opportunity to change our consciousness and be reborn, which is a qualitative shift. How far can we humans, who contain infinite possibilities, reach? The time is coming when our human nature will be tested.

Katakamuna people are not the ones who lived a long time ago and are different from us. Katakamuna is the principle of the world where we live. Even this moment, the world operates by this system. When we understand this and live it out, we will become Katakamuna people (cosmic beings) who live in the modern era.

If you would like to explore Katakamuna further, please join “The One Month Truth School” which will be held at the Konohana Family.

*As for the year 2020, it will be held from February 23rd to March 21st. If you are interested in it, we recommend you apply for it as soon as possible since the seats are limited.

 

For the Central Sun and All the People Who Live on the Earth  ~Message from the Foot of Mt. Fuji~

If we decipher the modern society in which we live, we can see that human activities are spreading on a global scale and seem to control the world. However, it is very difficult to say that the existence of humanity has brought a healthy world order to this earth. The current reality is that in order to fulfill the desires of their individual egos, people have created a poor, immature world by competing, scrabbling with each other, and generating inequalities. Intrinsically, the earth’s ecosystem is an expression of an abundant world where diverse life forms harmonize and coexist. In such a world, the abundance sought by modern people has moved in a direction that conforms to the aspirations of their egos, and has brought disorder to a world where all life is supposed to be harmonious and beautiful. Humans are even now continuing to move forward in the direction sought out by their egos without feeling any sense of contradiction. Looking back on the history of the earth, and even sensing the formation of the universe, we can see that order has never been brought about by such a unilateral step. Furthermore, when we look at the current state of the world, we are beginning to see that society will no longer be viable if we continue in this way. Therefore, as a person who feels anxiety about the current status of human beings, I send this message out of concern for the future.

Twenty-five years ago, we established Konohana Family at the foot of Mt. Fuji and started a process to put our will into practice. As far as most modern people are concerned, our way of living is considered to be impossible. At the time Konohana Family was founded, no one, even the participants, understood what the purpose was or what actions they should take. What prodded us into action was intuition and trust rather than thinking.
Without any support or evidence, as a founder of this path, I suggested this way of life to everyone on the basis of spiritual encounters and the intuition that “I must achieve my principal purpose in my life,”. For their part, the founding members who encountered me started on this path without any guarantee, just with trust. What became the driving force was a consistent focus on correcting our minds and living with a beautiful heart. If we do not respond to the future of humanity, and also the future of the earth, with a beautiful heart, eventually the right of humans to exist on the earth will be called into question. However, many people who live in the present age are in a state of consciousness that does not take notice of this. That is why the current society is at a standstill, and the more you see the reality of society, the more clearly you can see this.

How should we, human beings live in the next Era?
When we look at modern human society, we see that people have created structures of human convenience such as laws and systems, and have tried to maintain order with restrictions they have built on the basis of people’s speculations. However, it can be said that these structures are a human ego-trip. In other words, if you look at the reality of this world from bigger and bigger and broader and broader viewpoints, it exists under the laws of a huge universe, such as those of the solar system, and the galaxy. The life ecosystem exists on the basis of the laws of the earth, and the order of human society will be sustainable only if we humans follow these laws and coexist with all beings on the basis of the same laws.
Unfortunately, those who have been leading humanity and leaders who were selected on the basis of human greed and thought are in mental states that are incapable of recognizing the basic mechanisms of such a world. That is why they are suitable as leaders of the present age. This can be clearly understood when we analyze the present state of the earth from the perspective outlined above, but it can be said that modern leaders have fallen into the absence of such mental circuits. And the current state of society is created not by the consciousness of certain leaders, but by the collective consciousness of all the people living in the present age.

Under such circumstances, 25 years ago, some people who could not see the future and had no idea where to go, but who just felt that this way of life would be important for the coming age, started to live together by transcending blood relationships. Those who felt a faint instinct toward this way of life relied on it, and those who did not have those instincts; just relied on their mutual trust, stepped forward; and have come through to the present day. The philosophy that became the most important pillar of this life was that of making the mind beautiful. Because we in this community are human beings, the ego takes precedence, and whenever a polluted mind has emerged from the ego, the members have questioned, examined and refined it each other. Living in our modern society, this naturally; seemed painful for many people. Therefore, for those people who had high ideals but could not face the reality of themselves, there was a limitation on joining this way of life, and as a result, they dropped out. Transcending the ego and recalling the true self that exists within is difficult not only for these people, but for many people who live in the present day. However, each of us knows, as the core of our being, that our human existence is at base a sacred existence, and that that is the most important thing in life.
Human beings are given diverse and unique egos that no other life form has. The ego brings diversity to the world. The true purpose of humans’ having been given their egos is to give abundant expression to the world through their diversity. Each person’s original personality has been given to them in order for them to play that role. However, in the history of their unique evolution, human beings have manifested abundance through the diversity carried by their egos, but moved in the direction of fulfilling the individual desires that spring from the ego, and as a result of each individual seeking their own happiness, through their diversity they brought disharmony to the world. Therefore, no matter how much the leaders who were chosen through the extension of the greed of such people; want to enrich the country, if humans do not fundamentally re-examine what it means to be a human being, they will not be aware that the current social confusion was brought about by a misunderstanding of what it means to seek happiness, and will not be able to bring the right order to the world as life.
The life of Konohana Family has been able to continue until today because it is built on the pillar of striving to make each person’s mind beautiful, and the reason behind that is a spirituality of high consciousness, i.e., —- love and trust. The Source of this world is a beautiful harmony based on love, and for the coming age, we should build a country (Kunitsukuri) in this way.

Therefore, even if you are not a person who can speak superior reason with high consciousness, if you are just honest and supple, and live with your intuition instead of thinking about your gain and loss, that will lead you to the beautiful world which is the substance of this world. This is because this world was originally beautiful, and it is only that humans polluted it with their own greed. Now, it is time to throw away ambition and create a truly beautiful world in order for humans to apply their superior abilities in service of the purpose sought by Source.
The truth is that we are not living in this world by our own powers, but we are given life and living within the great mechanisms of the universe. Therefore, we humans are by nature living out an existence in accordance with the intentions of the world that is making use of us, and we are not in a position to fulfill the desires that arise from us ourselves. In order to receive these subtle messages, we have to refine the spirit in your thinking part. When we reach such a state, the celestial body tells us how we should live. We receive orders from the universe (Mei) and reflect them in our own way of life. This is the true position of a person living on the earth, and living is an expression of orders from the universe.
There are many places in modern human society that take the form of a community, but to the extent that the community is devoted to the fulfillment of the individual ego, the ego will expand and eventually create contradictions. Once that state is reached, it becomes impossible for the community to continue its operation. As with religions of the past, it may have been possible to keep going within a certain restricted domain, but that was within a special world not accepted by the general public. That is why an awakening is needed now. If we expand our field of view, we see that the earth is a special area in the universe, and it is one community. When we humans who live as life on earth realize this, receive the order from the universe, and express it on the earth as physicality, a beautiful world will be brought to the earth. That is heaven on earth. That is the purpose for which the universe has brought us humans down to earth.

I now transmit to the universe the thought which is gushing forth from within — “One who takes the position of a physical human can finally talk about the intention of the universe as an awareness.” This is a declaration that what has been entrusted to humanity by the universe as the true purpose of human beings has been achieved, and this declaration is sent to the Central Sun, the Galactic Operating Center. This is the original attitude of the people who originally descended from the universe to live on earth.
When a person reaches such a level of consciousness, spiritual awareness is automatically expressed as physicality. Then we will have a time when some errors will arise between the universe and the earth. To those who do not understand these things, the universe will impart such phenomena as confusion, disorder, confrontation, and destruction. From now on, we will surely see tough times on earth, for us human beings and also for other lives. Due to humanity’s many activities, this planet, which is supposed to be beautiful and abundant, now overflows with physical and spiritual waste resulting from various contradictions, and it has become a waste dump for the universe. By nature, there is no waste in the universe. This is because it is the mechanism of the universe for everything to circulate without stagnation, and for contradictions to always be repeatedly released by the positive and negative TAIKOHASSEI. If we human beings are the source of these contradictions, then, in keeping with the release of the contradictions, human beings, as their source, also become a target for elimination. Garbage means being out of the natural circulation of nature, and if humans are the source of their contradictions, automatically, they will turn into unnecessary beings. In the Konohana Family, by broadening one’s worldview (physically and spiritually) and also by practicing the physicality of the ancient wisdom, Katakamuna, in life, one acts as a medium to bring the law of the universe to the phenomenal world, and to intentionally reset the present state of earth, which has become over-plus. The ability to physically perform the act of releasing such contradictions in the phenomenal world is given only to humans. It naturally appears to those whose spirituality has reached that level of consciousness. The source of that spirituality is found in the spirituality of the universe.

Thus far, humanity has not been able to understand the substance of the universe because of insufficient research into the physical from a spiritual point of view, and it has interpreted the universe based only on the physical. As a result, physical investigation has progressed, and now we can observe the universe more accurately through science. Life has also been explored through science, and we have been able to glimpse the meaning of human existence by looking at the scientific viewpoint in the light of spirituality.
However, no matter how much science has advanced, it is ultimately impossible for us to physically reach an understanding of this huge universe through science. The substance of the universe is the spirituality at the heart of the physical universe. The essence of human beings is also spiritual, and it is because we possess this spirituality that it is possible for us to elucidate the universe. By feeling the consensus of the universe at such a level of consciousness, and bringing down the substance of this world from there, it becomes clear what the universe is. If human consciousness reaches such a state, we will be able to live in accordance with the will of the universe. In other words, it is possible for us human beings to live as the universe itself, despite being so small, physically. When the soul that has reached this level of consciousness is released from the small physical frame of its physical body, it will eventually unite with the universe as a being full of this world.

As we live on Earth, we encounter various physical phenomena in our daily lives. This means that we are living with opportunities for detailed learning that are provided by these phenomena. When we humans encounter something that deviates from our own thoughts, we also feel sad and get angry, due to our immaturity. However, the law of the universe is divine justice, reincarnation, and a world of eternal circulation that constantly regenerates. If you have a thought fixated on a specific state within this, it will create a stagnation in the circulation and deviate from the intention of the universe. To what extent can humans free themselves from this captivity?
Instead of separating the current situation of the world from themselves, people must take responsibility for the fact that their way of being creates the current situation of the world and must work to express this living with a humble attitude. Until now, when people have encountered problems, they have set their own faults aside and focused their anger and criticism on the problems. However, what we need now is not anger or criticism, but rather an awareness of the nature of our existence and an effort to ourselves live humbly in the universe.
When we reach such a level of consciousness, we will know that all of this world is made of love. We, Konohana Family is a small existence, but it is an implementation of a way of life based on the order of the universe for the future of the earth. Just as in the formation of the universe, we who live here must fittingly express the precious miracle of the universe that is expressed in the ecosystem of the earth.

Wake up.
May this awakening lead humanity to step forth as a precious existence, along with the earth, the miracle of the universe.

Konohana Family Newsletter vol.98 – decipher the new “REIWA” era

Decipher the new “REIWA” era !


The Cycle of the Universe and
the Japanese Era Are

Linked

In Japan, since ancient times, there have been “Gengo” – titles for the eras. Ever since the administration of the country by samurais, which had lasted from the Middle Ages for a couple of hundreds of years, ended, and the administration was returned to the emperor in 1867, the “Gengo” has changed every time a new emperor has ascended the throne, and we have followed the transition from “Meiji” to “Taisho” to “Showa” to “Heisei”.

On May 1st, 2019, the “Heisei Emperor” who reigned for 30 years abdicated, and the new emperor ascended the throne. The new era was named “REIWA,” which means “Beautiful Harmony.”

As the new “Reiwa” era has begun, many Japanese people seem to have a feeling that “something will change.” That is how it should be. In fact, the change from one Japanese era to the next is linked to the movement of the stars in the universe. We live in the universe, and switching the cycle of the universe means that we will change the way we are. The change of the “Gengo” in Japan is of global significance, and it is also a cosmic ceremony that weaves the era.

Diagram 1.  Accord of the Cycle of Pluto and
Japanese Era Names

click the diagram to enlarge

Pluto’s cycle around the sun over the course of 248 years represents one of the milestones of an era on the earth. The most recent cycle was from 1760 to 2008, and it began from the peak of light (the center of the galaxy = the direction of the central sun). That began with the Industrial Revolution, and people’s lives have changed dramatically, with the material supremacy principle sweeping the world with mass production and mass consumption and the capitalist economy experiencing dramatic development. That cycle was closed with a symbolic event when the global economy fell into chaos due to the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy in 2008.
In this cycle of Pluto, there are some specific points, such as the aphelion and perihelion, and the ascending node and the descending node(*), in addition to the peak of light and the peak of darkness.These points show a marvelous match to the change of names of the Japanese eras.
Now, Pluto has announced the end of the cycle that started with the Industrial Revolution, and has been moving forward to the next cycle.


*Aphelion point and Perihelion point
The point where Pluto is the furthest from the Sun (Aphelion point) and the point closest to the Sun (Perihelion point).

*Ascending node and Descending node
The points at which Pluto’s orbit tilts strongly towards the ecliptic plane passing from south to north (ascending node), and from north to south (descending node).

 


 

The Era that Gives a Lot of Difficulties as
Learning Opportunities

 

Diagram 2.  Solar Spiral Motion – a 25800 year cycle


The Sun, which is the center of the solar system, is not a static presence in the space of the universe; with a spiral motion it orbits the Central Sun, which is the center of the Milky Way Galaxy. One spiral motion of the Sun takes 25,800 years, and each spiral encompasses a Peak of Light (summer solstice of the galaxy) and a Peak of Darkness (winter solstice of the galaxy). It repeats this motion about 9000 times, taking about 226 million years to complete one cycle around the Milky Way galaxy, and it never stops. Moreover, the galaxy itself keeps moving in the space of the universe. We always keep traveling in the vast space of the universe toward an unknown place.

 

Will “A Peaceful Era without Disaster” come?

On the day that the era of REIWA began, an interview of the Japanese people was conducted, and the most common answers to the question, “What are your hopes for the new era?” were: “I want to have an era without disasters” and “I want to have a peaceful era.” However, in keeping with the abnormal weather that has already occurred in various places this year, disasters have actually increased year by year. Even though we may spend our daily life without any problems, various problems have accumulated for society as a whole, and it has become more and more difficult for us to live in this world. This is closely linked to the cycle of the sun, which is the center of our solar system.

On December 21, 2012, the solar system reached the “Winter Solstice of the Galaxy” after 25,800 years, and since that day, the cycle has changed from one of increasing darkness to one of increasing light in the universe. The light is a spiritual light. In the era of increasing darkness, everything was in a cycle of expansion. As things expanded, more distance was created, and people became lonely, separated and struggled, and as a result of their pursuit of materialistic wealth to gain even more, the environment was destroyed, and now the earth is full of garbage that cannot be processed. However, in the midst of increasing darkness, people could not see what they were bringing to this world; they pursued lopsided wealth, believed that it was good, and built up a lot of problems on the earth.

As we have transcended the peak of darkness in which the truth cannot be seen, now, finally, the light begins to shine on our spiritual awakening, and the time has come to illuminate the substance which has been hidden in the darkness up until now. This means that phenomena have appeared as a result of past human actions, and the time has come for us to face this fact. As we now encounter such a physically difficult time, what is required of human beings is to contract. Just as when you inhale, you surely must exhale, the era has reached the peak of expansion, and our earth too, along with the sun, has entered a cycle of cosmic contraction. That contraction means that the distances from one thing to the next are diminished. The magnificent cycle of the sun shows us that.

The 1600-year Cycle of Civilization
Reflecting on the history of human civilization, we find a steady 1600-year cycle in which eastern and western civilizations alternately rise and fall every 800 years. When one group is in a “Prosperous period” of active blooming, the other enters a “Preparation period” to prepare for germination. As if tracing a double helix, the eastern and western civilizations become a pair, advancing the era as they develop.
★A 100-year Period of Upheaval
During every transition period when eastern and western civilizations trade positions, there have been major global upheavals which last about 100 years.
Reference: Institute of History of Civilization Law – The theory of the 800-year civilization cycle

The Ancient Chinese Calendar
According to the Taoist “Ancient Chinese Calendar” of China, the history of human civilization went through a “Blue Light Period,” during which kings controlled people, and a “Red Light Period,” when saints taught and guided people; since 1927, it has entered the “White Light Period,” during which people have awakened by themselves.
*For such a universal cycle to manifest, it must include transitional periods of about 100 years in length.

 

The Beginning of the 100 Years of Chaos

The cycle of human civilization, which started about 6450 years ago, at the midpoint of the solar system going from the peak of light to the peak of darkness, indicates that the modern age is also at the beginning of an era of absolute chaos.

Since the beginning of civilization, Eastern and Western civilizations have repeated a cycle of rise and fall every 800 years. The 800 years from the 13th century to the 20th century were the times of the Renaissance, the Age of Discovery, the Industrial Revolution, and the period when the Western material civilization that segregates and captures things scientifically blossomed and led the world. However, after 2000, the rise and fall of the East and West switched places. The Western civilization that flourished in those 800 years reached the end of its prosperity and entered the preparation phase of the next cycle, and the era of 800 years of Eastern civilization began to flourish instead.

The Eastern civilization is a spiritual civilization that senses the depths of visible matters and captures things in an integrated manner. Since the beginning of the modern age, Japan tried to catch up with the strong Western countries and forced to imitate them; as a result, Japan expressed “the Yamato (Japanese) spirit” in a distorted form like war, and totally lost its spiritual underpinning by experiencing defeat. When you lose something, you will look for something to replace it. That was the Western material civilization. Not only Japan, but also China and other Asian countries were similarly infected by Western civilization. However, because it was a borrowed civilization that was foreign to the original spirituality, it brought many contradictions to the Asian countries.
As the study of history reveals, there is always a global upheaval at the turn of East-West civilizations that lasts for a transitional period of about 100 years. From this point of view, the modern age is the beginning of a period of world turmoil. This chaos will be greater in the East than in the West, because, in the West, it can be recognized as a matter of course since it happens after the original civilization matures. In the countries in the East, however, many contradictions arise due to the incoming civilization that does not fit their spirits, so the chaos becomes even greater.

According to the “Ancient Chinese Calendar” of China, an ancient source of oriental wisdom, “the age of the common people’s awakening” will begin prior to the winter solstice of the galaxy and the transformation of east-west civilization. What can we decipher about the coming era from the cycle of the stars of the universe and the wisdom of our predecessors?

 

 

To Bring
a Beautiful World to
the Earth

Great Harmony, Spirit of Yamato (Japan)

There is another name for Japan that has been passed down since ancient times. That is “Yamato”. At one time in war, young Japanese people plunged into enemy ships with the Yamato spirit. However, the true Yamato spirit does not waste one’s life in such a way. In Chinese characters, Yamato is written as “Great Harmony(大和).” “和” means that each person is unique, respecting each other, making good use of their individuality, helping each other, and living richly. These become the great (大) harmony (和) that is “Yamato (大和)”.
The model for this is the earth’s ecosystem. There are millions of lives on the earth, all of which circulate, connect, and support each other. The world of that great harmony is Yamato (大和), and its name contains the meaning that the people of the country of Yamato are the existence that will bring the beautiful world to the earth.

The Era – from Expansion to Contraction

Now, it is time to change the way we are, in order to respond to global change. In the modern age, we are facing various cosmic turning points, and the biggest turning point in human history. However, even if the era has shifted, people’s consciousness does not change so easily. As the solar system enters the cycle of contraction, people’s consciousness is still on the course of expansion, and despite the earth’s having given various messages, people continue seeking more material abundance.
If you broaden your viewpoint, our living world always keeps spiraling toward unknown places. In that context, if you fix your values and live as a captive of your own perspective, you will move away from the flow of the era of the universe. That is why the universe generates various phenomena and gives them to us as messages urging us to correct our trajectory.

Shrinking means getting closer. Knowing others, revealing yourself, shortening distances, tightening bonds, and sharing with others — this is how we can live with trust and peace of mind without needing many things. This is abundance of mind, not material abundance.
Shrinking may seem constraining for those who feel comfortable with the sense of expansion. However, in the first place, the structure of our life exists only by connecting. In our natural ecosystem, there is no one living apart from others. Our own bodies are also made up of tens of thousands of cells in close association. Furthermore, innumerable stars in the universe, including the earth, also set this world in motion by connecting together on a grand scale, and we are given our lives by that mechanism.

In the previous era, which was heading toward the darkness, everything was in a cycle of expansion, and people came to assume that separating is affluence. However, that living style has brought many contradictions to the world because the substance of the universe is established by being connected. And to connect means to express love. In other words, the essence of the universe is love, and contracting means encountering its essence.

In the coming years, the light will reveal the truth and lead people to awakening. However, the light may seem dazzling for people who do not willingly face toward the light. At that time, instead of fleeing toward the darkness, open your eyes and see the truth. Until now, the era has been one in which the acts that people considered good actually gave rise to mistakes. With these mistakes coming to light, we will from now on enter an era in which the actions that we imagine to be good will in fact lead to truly good things. In order to bring about such a decisive awakening, the universe has given us various phenomena.

With a lovely, unshakable and dignified beauty, each individual is very unique, making the most of their individuality and harmonizing each other. That is the message carried by the new era of “REIWA”.
Unique lives recognize each other and live together in harmony. We were born to bring such a beautiful world to the earth.

“One Month Truth School” 
Open for your application !!

One Month Truth School 2020

One Month Truth School 2020

Quorum has already been reached!
Thank you for your interest.

One Month Truth School is a program to learn the way of life of humanity in the 21st century.

Introduction
“School” is a place where you will find something new to learn about what you have never known or believed before. When children enter school, they encounter many things they did not know before, and they expand upon the world as they receive each new understanding, while growing rapidly. However, as they grow up, their values get fixed, and they say, “I want to learn something like this.” After all, they will only receive what is in line with their values.

The One Month Truth School is not a forum that offers content based on just the values that you want to learn, because now the era is changing dramatically and we are no longer able to survive with our old values. These values have created the current society, and as a result, the world is facing a major impasse where no breakthroughs can be found anywhere. Right now, we human beings are standing at serious crossroads where if we continue to live with our old values, we will move onto the path of destruction. However, if we choose to change, then we will step into the flow of the universe, which no one can perceive from our past values.

*We can tell that the era is now at its greatest turning point, based on the cycle of the stars, and the history of human civilization. If you would like to know the details, please see the following.
Konohana Family English Newsletter 2019 Summer Solstice Issue

The One Month Truth School is an opportunity to meet a new world that you have never dreamed of, with a whole other dimension of learning than what has been taught in the past. When you abandon your attachments to your old values, and step into the unknown, you will break through your boundaries and meet your new self. This style of learning is going to help you make a breakthrough in your life by becoming more aware of how to resolve the problems of modern society, while opening a path to contribute to the future of the earth.

In the One Month Truth School, we welcome people who have a will to step into the new world, beyond the fixed concepts of modern society. We offer a program at Konohana Family which practices experiential learning.

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.
Website https://www.npo-greengrass.org/


 

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.”

P’s Report on Taking the Natural Therapy Program

In September, 2017, P visited Konohana Family for the first time and consulted with Jiiji about the anxiety and depression which she had suffered from for a long time. She revisited Konohana in January, 2019 and took the Natural Therapy Program for 6 weeks. As a result, she successfully graduated from the Program and the graduation concert for her was held on February 16th. During the concert, she shared the following “P’s Report on Taking the Natural Therapy Program” with Konohana Family members.


 

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

I am very happy to have this opportunity to tell the community what I have been able to experience while I have been here living among you. Before I came to Konohana Family, my world had become smaller and smaller, to a point where I felt nearly paralyzed, emotionally. This was despite intense spiritual and therapeutic work.
I live in the United States. I am seventy years old, married, with two children in their twenties; for many years I had a career as a professor. My arrival at Konohana Family is the result of reading an article in Communities magazine and recognizing immediately that there was something important here for me.
When I arrived, the main ongoing cause of distress in my life was depression and anxiety related to my marriage. Although my husband is a very kind, caring person, I have found it difficult to connect with him emotionally. As Jiiji has put it, for me, my husband is a great messenger from the divine, because the differences between us have brought to my attention a number of the negative patterns that I developed long ago, in my childhood.
Despite the fact that my parents made their best efforts to care for me in a loving manner, they had both suffered significant trauma while they were young, and the serious difficulties in their marriage meant that I did not emerge from my childhood with a feeling of safety and wellbeing. In fact, I developed a hyper-vigilant attitude toward the world. After my sister was born with medical issues when I was eight years old, I felt especially jeopardized, and fell into the first of many sicknesses that I have experienced over the years. Some of these were quite serious, and they generally occurred when I was facing a situation that I didn’t know how to handle.
Because there was no spiritual aspect to our life at home, I had no awareness of any sort of divine force on whom I could depend for help or guidance. I was encouraged to use my intelligence, work hard, and prepare myself for a good career that would give me financial security without the need to marry. I in fact followed this path, developing along the way a perfectionistic personality that brought with it many negative thoughts about myself and about the world at large. I eventually became a university professor, but still suffered from a lot of anxiety and depression. Then, about thirty years ago, I married my husband and began a family life that echoed many of the themes of my own childhood.
Due in part to my health issues, I retired from my job about fifteen years ago, and embarked on an effort to improve my mental and physical condition. Fortunately, I had the chance to encounter a spiritual healer who made me aware of the relationship between physical and mental health and spiritual health. This started the long search for spiritual healing that has brought me to Konohana Family today.
Before coming here, I had realized for a long time that allowing my ego to “earn” success in a career was not going to bring me happiness, but still, I was floundering. I would say I have a strong ethos of service to the broader world, but because my mental condition was so unstable, I was having continual emotional crises that caused me to “crash,” and most of my energy was being used to keep myself going and care for my home and my family. I had the feeling that I was barely alive.
Of course, the rest of my family also experienced problems as the result of my ongoing depression and anxiety. Basically, just like when I was a child and used sickness as a way to secure my parents’ attention, I ended up positioning myself as a needy person who required the help of the rest of the family just to continue to exist. The fact that my family was carrying so much responsibility for my life of course made it very difficult for them to live out their own lives in keeping with their individual wills.

What Konohana Family has offered me while I’ve been here is a different vision, a vision of how to live a psycho-spiritually independent existence. When I can do that, I trust that the rest of my family will also have a better chance to express their own talents and independently develop their own lives.
I see that this step toward my own emotional independence will allow me to begin to consistently and truly care about other people for the first time in my life, because I won’t need them to make my own life livable. Making this change within my family does not amount to “saving the world,” of course, but for me, it is a significant step in the direction of spiritual maturity.

How can I hope to make such a huge change after seventy years of living another way? I think it depends on having identified and made a commitment to trust another source of safety in life. While I have been here at Konohana, I have made huge strides in this direction. Part of this is due to some of the teachings that Jiiji has shared with me; part of it is due to what I have been able to sense about how this community functions.
For example, I have realized that the real source of the difficulties in my life has not been the traumatic events of my childhood per se, but my tendency to view them as a curse rather than as engraved invitations to spiritual growth. Because Jiiji has said so many things to me that have the “ring of truth,” and because I can see how successful the efforts of Konohana Family have been, I have decided to trust his reassurance that when I do what I need to do, the divine will kick in and support my efforts. In other words, I just need the courage to trust that it is a benevolent partner who is offering to dance down the road with me, if I will but join the dance.
One reason that I have had a hard time grasping these opportunities is that the issues I have been dealing with have looked too big for me to handle on my own – my mind couldn’t see a way to solve them. But as Jiiji and Yoko have repeatedly reminded me, I am not going to have to solve the entire problem on my own, and I don’t have to see the entire path to a solution from my current perspective. In fact, this is impossible, because I don’t yet have the skills or the mental perspective that will be needed. But if I can trust that my dance partner will join me, I can have the courage to take the first step. And after that first step, the rest of the dance will gradually become clear. As Jiiji put it, in a mind with room, many possibilities that are currently invisible will become visible. I have taken to heart the implications of this concept, which are a major revelation for me, and I have seen them played out many times in the community during the time I have been here.
In addition to these challenges to “step up” and take concrete actions to take responsibility for my own life, Jiiji has given me lots of encouragement about the possibilities that are still open to me at the age of seventy. It’s not like I need to just throw away my old personality and try to start over again — even the aspects of my nature that have been problems for me in the past (like my carefulness, and my sensitivity) can be put to good use in contributing to not only my family, but the broader world.
In fact, he has reassured me that it’s not too late to make this sort of 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.
Of course, when I go back to the US, I will face the challenge of holding on to what I have been able to take in here. I don’t expect everything to suddenly become easy, but I do feel like I’ve basically received what I need to lay down my addiction to seeking my own identity, my own life, in the eyes of other people. Much of this change is due to all the things I have had a chance to discuss with Jiiji and Yoko, but a huge part of it is due what I have experienced, rather than simply taken in intellectually, and when I think back on my spiritual life, it is the unexpected experiences that have stayed with me as touchstones, much more than the many books I have read.
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. It is impossible to overstate the level of calm, sincerity, and benevolence that emanates from the individual members, and from the community as a whole. Living in this sort of environment, one can come to expect benevolence, and living within that expectation is a very powerful experience. Because of all of this, the pace of life here seems very measured, predictable, and reassuring, as in the words to a song from the Thich Nhat Hanh sangha – “never in a hurry.” This is profoundly healing for those of us who are accustomed to self-generated anxiety (at best), or panic (at worst), on a daily basis.
During my six weeks here, as part of this “organism,” I feel like I have been privileged to have my nervous system “re-set” at a lower level, so that it takes longer to “get upset,” and so that the upset resolves itself more rapidly. It is probably also physiologically impossible for visitors not to respond positively to the diet of super-fresh organic foods grown and prepared with love. These are benefits of the program that I expect to take home in my bones.
Another great experiential gift, which I have witnessed countless times, is the willingness of visibly weary people here to just keep going, no matter what the current circumstances may be. Of course, “things happen,” but in general, life here seems to abide by the principle that “the show must go on.” To have this sort of communal stability underlying one’s daily life is profoundly reassuring for those who may otherwise have the sense of being alone in the universe, and it must be such a joy for members to know that they are contributing to that.
I don’t know what life will bring when I go back to the United States, but I do know that I will bring to it a different awareness. I have already noticed a gentling of my inner dialogue – although I can still see the frightened and controlling aspect of my personality at work in my mind, I can feel more compassion for her, and less of a need to compulsively follow her guidance. Although my emotional state still wobbles from side to side, the wobbling is less extreme, and subsides more quickly.
I had a good chance to feel the before-and-after difference this week when we had an English-speaking visitor from Shanghai. My ego immediately jumped up and wanted to create an identity for itself as the local one-person English public relations campaign for Konohana Family, and I suddenly recognized that I had not encountered anything like this from other people for weeks! Nobody seemed to be trying to impress me, control me, or receive something from me. Instead, they were just open to me, and willing to help and share however they could. Suddenly, I realized that this was a huge part of the way-of-being in the world that has been opened up to me during my stay. I am so grateful to have had this shocking experience of seeing how anxious and self-centered my typical way of interacting with others has been in the past, and to recognize the nature of the other way that has been modeled for me so consistently while I’ve been here.
I would like to close by mentioning a very important conversation that I had with Yoshiko one day as we were preparing potatoes. I told her about my extreme difficulties in making decisions, and she shared with me about a radical change in the way in which she herself had come to chart the direction of her life. She told me that she used to be in the habit of setting goals for herself, accomplishing them, and then moving on to the next goal. But when she came to Konohana, she felt, it wasn’t so much the fulfillment of a self-generated goal as it was her destiny. These days, she has the feeling that instead of actively choosing what she will do, situations that are appropriate to her simply appear, often situations in which she will be able to provide help to someone, and she is able to recognize them as “hers.” In this way, she is “being lived.”
When I applied for the Natural Therapy Program, my highest goal was to receive help in reaching a state like the one that Yoshiko so beautifully described to me. Although this still seems a long way off, my time here has allowed me to begin to see how this may eventually come to pass. I am very grateful to all of you for your help.

 


After P’s Report was shared, her supporter, Yoko read out “P’s Story” in which she reflected on P’s 6-week stay.


 

“P’s Story”
-Just a Part of the Story of P, who has Learned a Lot and has been Growing-

In 2017, a 68-year-old American woman named P, who had received a diagnosis of “generalized anxiety disorder,” visited the Konohana Family for the first time. When she had time with Jiiji, the main coordinator of the natural therapy program, she told him that she had been unhappy throughout her life, with mental symptoms such as anxiety, panic, depression, and mood swings, and in recent years, especially in connection with her marriage. She told him, “I know that at Konohana, you practice trusting in divine guidance and use it as the basis for your entire life. I am wondering if it might be good for me to come here for the Natural Therapy Program or the One-Month Truth School, to receive your support in learning to live in this new way.” Jiiji said to her, “What you need is not to receive treatment but to broaden your worldview. In order to do so, I recommend you take the natural therapy program first. Then, if you think it is necessary, it would be good for you to participate in the Truth School.”

A year and a half after her initial visit, P decided to spend six weeks to take the natural therapy program, and visited Konohana again. When she had time with Jiiji on the first day, she said, “Since I was here before, I feel that I have gotten smaller and smaller internally, tighter and tighter, more and more frightened because I feel so conflicted about staying in my marriage.” Then, he said as follows:
I have mentioned this before, but first of all, I think you should broaden your worldview. Why do humans live? What is death? Since we live in this world rather than just as individuals, what kind of place is this world? Most people live according to their daily schedule, and are driven by money; however, in fact, we are in the universe, and our life is supported by the system of stars, the sun, the moon and the earth. You mentioned that, because of relationship issues in your family, you have fallen apart emotionally. However, from the beginning, it has in general been true that the more living beings get together, the more abundant they get. On the contrary, only in the human world is it the case that the more people get together, the more problems such as factional disputes and confrontations occur. Therefore, I believe your problem is humanity’s problem. That is, you have been in this state as the representative of humanity.
Therefore, you need to know yourself accurately, and at the same time, I need to know you and give advice, so please start by writing a journal every day. I will make comments on it. Please consider me to be another objective self for you, and utilize me. The purpose of this program is that a new you will begin to think in a new way. The reason why those who could not be cured at general medical institutions can recover their health here is that they transcend their attachments to themselves and change their own perspectives.
It takes a lot of time to improve those who are not sick of their personalities and are stubborn people. Therefore, you have to be fed up with your personality first. Then, it is important to come to laugh at your past self and talk to her calmly.

She answered immediately, saying “I am fed up!” and Jiiji continued as follows:
Then, you have the potential to improve. Currently, the human way of being is out of order all over the world. This is a problem, but since it is out of order, the wisdom of how to deal with it is hidden behind the problem. Therefore, we need an ability to sense what kind of message is hidden behind problems. In order to do so, objective viewpoints and a broad worldview are required.

After the first consultation, P attended the community meeting that night. As the top agenda, we had time to discuss the Konohana Family Charter which was written up last year in order to deepen our understanding. This was a great opportunity for her since her theme of this program was to broaden her worldview. From the next day on, she attended the community meeting with eagerness, and tried to express herself honestly in her journals. Jiiji appreciated her active attitude, but at the same time, made comments on her journal as follows:
I think your way of thinking lacks a willingness to learn about your life positively in total. It is possible to be free, relax and spend your days positively. I believe the divine will for you will emerge with such a perspective. It is important to analyze the events you have encountered positively and utilize them for your life in the future so that your life experiences will not end up just bringing unhappiness to you.

It had been a week since P began to stay here. At the first week consultation, Jiiji did not mention what she had written in journals, such as her family issues, and said as follows:
You have worked hard as a university professor for a long time, but people who are socially excellent and have a high status and pride like you characteristically tend not to accept things unless they understand them. In this case, there is a pitfall. No matter how great the wisdom offered to them is, they tend to insist on interpreting it in their way. In case there is something they don’t want to accept, they tend to insist on their own conclusions as an excuse not to accept it. However, if you admit you have reached your current state as a result of your life history, I am just suggesting alternatives to improve your life.
I do this, first of all, because of my spiritual experiences, and because I actually have achievements in giving consultations to many people with issues. Also, people suffer with various kinds of egos and encounter various problems, and I would like people to see it as one of our achievements that, by manifesting the Konohana way of life, we have created a model that demonstrates that when we try to face and improve our own minds in our daily life, problems don’t occur in the community. I hope you accept my suggestions just as information, instead of judging whether they are right or wrong. It is a suggestion that “If you live this way of life, a society which it has been impossible for modern people to create will emerge.” This is also a suggestion to humanity.
As one of my life purposes, it is certain that I have given consultations to people with problems and supported them for a long time; however, the true purpose is to tell humanity to become aware of their true preciousness and express a precious way of life which is appropriate to them on earth. Moreover, it is to make the earth happy. I guess the earth is happy, listening to our talk. The reason why I am telling you the importance of broadening your worldview is that human beings should not be worried about themselves now, but their top priority should be to realize how much trouble they have given to other living beings and how much they have worked against the law of the universe.
I have given advice as information from not just one but from a few viewpoints. I would like you to be able to perceive things across a wide range, both vertically and horizontally, rather than seeing things from the one perspective of P. Therefore, I am going to offer various perspectives from now on, too.

After this, P tried harder to analyze herself in her journal, and Jiiji made comments as follows:
What I would like to suggest to you is that you quit trying to think of a solution by yourself. No matter how high your analytical ability is and no matter how hard you try, if the direction is wrong, there is no point in doing it. This is what excellent people fall into, surprisingly. Even if you try hard in this way, it does not mean you will break out of your own frame or gain a new way of thinking. I think the time has come when you should move on to the next stage in this project. I would like to suggest that you take actions beyond your own frame, such as participating in the work to see how your personality is reflected in your concrete daily actions, rather than exploring how to improve yourself through writing a journal. Let’s talk about it concretely at the next consultation.

At the second week consultation, Jiiji suggested to P something that had never been proposed in the 15-year history of offering the Natural Therapy Program. Jiiji said as follows:
I have interacted with you for the past two weeks, and there is something I want to tell you. This project is for making your life a healthy and happy one. In order to do this, first of all, you must become a healthy and happy person. I assume that if you read your own journals, you also know that your self-analysis is perfect. However, no matter how perfectly you can analyze yourself, unless you can live based on it, it will be impossible for you to manifest a healthy and happy life.
The first two weeks were a period for us to get to know each other. Let me explain that there are two Ps in you. First, there is P-A, who has lived your life. Then, there is P-B, who observes and analyzes P-A and says, “That is not good!” P-B has wisdom which is good enough to improve yourself. However, P-A, who has lived your life, resists the suggestions given by P-B. I am involved with this project and so is Yoko as your supporter; however, we are just on the supporting side, and the main characters are the two Ps in you. You have not prioritized one of the two Ps, so they have not fought to the finish yet. But, unless you go beyond your current situation and prioritize one of them, your life will end in a halfway manner. We cannot say that either outcome is fine, however. You are working on yourself now in order to prioritize the one you should live with. No worries. Whatever you choose, you are just you. However, we can clearly see that your future will be positive or negative, depending on which one you choose.
The most important thing in this project is for you to see your life objectively and prioritize the self who admonishes you. As a matter of fact, you should not have a choice at this stage. In order for you to live a healthy and happy life, there should not be a choice. Now, I would like to say the same thing to humanity as a whole. Do you seek a physically abundant life? Or do you coexist with the earth and others and seek true abundance? Both a Chinese university professor who is staying here now and you are teachers, so you both have a wise way of thinking; however, strangely enough, neither of you has fully utilized it for yourself yet. This is a tendency of those who are evaluated as excellent people in the modern era and have a high social status.
So, let’s make these two weeks one cycle, and have time for the two Ps in you to talk together as the next stage. It is key how P-B, who tries to guide P-A in a good direction, will persuade P-A, who has lived your life. You can write a journal as in the past, but as a new task from tomorrow on, let’s meet for a time which is not so long, like half an hour. Please express the two Ps in you, especially the one who should be admonished. Then, let’s have a discussion with the two Ps and me every day. I hope this initiative will provide you with the finishing touches for improving yourself throughout your life.

Jiiji came up with this suggestion because he thought that P, by just receiving his comments on her journals, tended to interpret his advice in her way. Therefore, he hoped she would gain objective perspectives by having time with him more often and talking directly.

After that, P had time with Jiiji for about half an hour every night, and the discussion between P-A and P-B proceeded. When she said, “When I get up in the morning, the negative P-A appears, thinking that my life is a mess and I have never improved in my life,” Jiiji said to her, “When you encounter P-A, that is the exact chance for improvement. When you get up in the morning and feel negative, it is your chance! Please give the training to yourself.” He also encouraged her, saying, “As your goal, the ratio between P-A and P-B does not have to be 0:100. Around 40:60 would be good. It is all right to have 40% P-A for the sake of diversity, since we also need to prioritize problems in order to learn about life. Let’s meet a new P tomorrow!” When her thinking focused on her husband’s issues and she was dominated by P-A, Jiiji said to her, “Living a life is like always taking an exam about how our mental state is. The mental state which comes out is the answer. No matter how negative or positive a thing seems to be, everything is the divine love. In fact, everything is positive. It is your freedom to think negatively; however, you have a mind that tends to interpret things negatively, so you just do so. In this world, phenomena always occur with a positive backdrop; there is always love in the source. The thing is whether you can become a person who can receive this from the phenomena which you encounter in this world.” In this way, P became familiar with Jiiji’s attitude of “accepting everything just as information” and the difficult system of such challenges for the mind as “trying not to have a joy which is convenient for myself.”

P gradually began to gain a calm and objective viewpoint. Jiiji suggested that she compare her recent journals and those from the beginning of her stay, and helped her recognize her changes by recognizing the decrease in negative thoughts in her recent journals.
One day, she received a message from her husband. Although she reacted to it emotionally at first, she was able to return to a calm mental state soon. Jiiji said to her, “His message was a great test today! In this case, he is a divine messenger. In fact, all phenomena can be seen as coming from the divine, depending on how we interpret them. It is quite difficult for those who have not become awakened yet to have such a beneficial perspective for their lives. It is important to find the key to this perspective. Perhaps you have paid attention to what is close to you, like your husband, rather than trying to find the key and explore the truth. That is why contradictions have occurred in your life. If you begin to understand the truth to this extent, he is not only your husband but also a divine messenger at the same time. Please always keep it in mind that every moment is a dialogue with the divine, and if we are immature, it could also be a test, in a sense.

P began to expand her worldview little by little. As a result, she decided to have time with Jiiji every other night, instead of every night. She also took her PC to the main hall where everyone gathers in order to spend more time in the community, and helped with hanging the decorations for the Flower Festival which was coming up in a week. In this manner, she tried to have more communication with the Konohana members. Then, Jiiji said to her, “It is good for you to write a journal and have time with me; however, I thought it would be more beneficial for the current you to sense Konohana’s daily life through this program, and I have suggested this before. Konohana’s daily activities could be anything, including selecting beans, attending a member’s departure ceremony (note: one of the members had been hospitalized and passed away suddenly, and we had her departure ceremony to see her off) today, or joining the community meeting. I would like to offer alternatives which you have never experienced, such as a different culture and new perspectives. As for the departure ceremony, that was an event which nobody would have been able to create intentionally. Each Konohana member took on as their role whatever they are capable of doing, and brought it to the event. If our member had not passed away at that time, all this would have been impossible. Therefore, I thought the divine gave it to us. In this manner, we live in a drama without any script.
Modern people are smart and always try to do things correctly. This is significant and indicates the excellence of human beings. However, I wonder if the value of “receiving our life,” which modern people have forgotten, could be visible in such an event as the departure of our member. The Konohana lifestyle is not something that people can create intentionally, either. It is difficult to analyze what lies behind the Konohana way of life. I believe the divine message is hidden in a place which people cannot create or encounter intentionally, no matter how hard they try.
Currently, your mental stability has been guided by the environment here. It is important to establish a new mental state in you so that the stability will continue when you go back to your original life in the US in the future. If it is created in you, it will function beneficially no matter where you go. As the base for that, it would be interesting for you to join the Konohana daily life and see what kind of spirituality the people you encounter have.
On the day before the departure ceremony, eight members performed the special Konohana flower dance, and you joined it with other members at the end. I was hoping you would, and was observing you. I was enjoying myself there, and at the same time, I was observing many things, including you. The day of the Flower Festival is coming up very soon, so please try to muster the courage to join in this time too.
As Jiiji suggested, P was willing to dance in front of everyone during the disco time (note: the audience dances, swinging an ax) after the demon dance on the day of the Flower Festival. At the fourth week consultation the next day, Jiiji said as follows:
It differs from case to case, but usually four weeks is the period in which we can have a clear idea about how to proceed with the program. I think these four weeks were the period for you to be able to arrive at an understanding of your current state. You still have two weeks to go. You decided in advance to stay here for six weeks due to your schedule, but I think this number is very good.
The series of ceremonies of the Flower Festival will end tomorrow. In general, we do not hold this Festival due to religious beliefs. I believe the festival is a different culture for you and American people, but we express what ancient people conveyed about the system of the earth and universe, and that we are a part of the natural ecosystem, in the modern way. In the coming era., people from all over the world may need to demonstrate flexibility and positively accept each other’s different cultures and that which is unfamiliar. So, in this way, we have been able to offer good experiences which you have never encountered before. Our activities are not for spreading the Konohana way of life, but I think it is very important in order to spread to humanity a way of life which is based on a global and universal viewpoint. Therefore, it would be good if we can work together on this from now on.

Receiving his words, P was about to participate in work in the fields for the first time on the day after the Flower Festival. However, she got a high fever, did not feel well, and ended up resting in her room for five days right after that.

When her fever went down and she was able to have time with Jiiji, it had been seven days from the previous consultation. Then, Jiiji said as follows:
It has been seven days from the previous consultation. Western people call the number 7 “lucky 7,” but according to the Katakamuna civilization which flourished in East Asia about 12,900 years ago, seven indicates a “qualitative shift.” That is, to throw off the old characteristics and to make a course correction in order to move forward. Therefore, the number 7 indicates one of the big cycles that bring about changes, rather than simply having good and convenient things. While you were resting, you might have suffered physically, but there was one thing I was looking forward to.
When I have given advice to care guests, there have been cases in which they got a fever by using a part of the brain which they had never used. It is the same as with children who get a fever when they grow up and get wisdom. Perhaps it is to increase their thinking capacity and thinking patterns. This time, it has been your theme in this program to broaden your worldview and perceive things with an objective viewpoint. You have encountered new viewpoints in this short period of time, but it could be quite difficult for you to take the time to digest them. Your conventional mental habits might disturb the process, too. So we sometimes get a fever or do not feel well at this point in the process. That is, we gain an awareness which we have never gained or receive a chance to reflect on ourselves during this period.
The reason why I usually provide a weekly consultation is that I am aware of the number 7. Therefore, I think it is good that it has been seven days since the previous consultation.

When P was asked how she had been in the past week, she said, “I had many strange dreams and felt like something dark was being released while I was resting. But after my fever went down, I felt good and calm. I have reflected on what I have learned here and remember Jiiji’s suggestions, so I have confidence about moving forward. I also feel as if I am a baby and cannot find a good balance yet.” Then, Jiiji said as follows:
It is all right. A baby will grow up from here on out. If you were a baby physically, it would take time to grow up; however, if you are a baby spiritually, you will grow up rapidly. When people get sick, they tend to think that a bad thing has happened, and after having a hard time, they finally became relieved of the painful situation. Surely, sickness occurs depending on a person’s mental state in many cases because it is a message. As for the flu, some catch it and some do not, even if they are in the same environment. Also, some catch it for a negative reason, and in fact, some do so for a positive reason. Therefore, I thought it was all due to the divine will to have time together today, seven (meaning a qualitative shift) days after the previous consultation.
What is important for feeling the divine will is whether or not we put our consciousness on the divine. For example, do you talk with the sun, the moon and stars? Do you talk with the wind? Do you talk with the soil? Do you talk with food when you eat it? Originally, everything is yourself. I believe talking with everything and living in good relationships is living out the divine will. Then thoughts like “How can I sense the divine will?” or “How can I sharpen my intuition?” are unnecessary. For example, when you do not feel well, your body is not comfortable, either. You do not feel like going out, and instead rest in your room. When you feel good, you feel like going out, throwing out your chest and taking a deep breath. In the same way, when we live, we can sense messages naturally. All right! You will be like that. If you sincerely believe, “That is right!” and continue a dialogue with the divine, you will be like that for sure. I did not have a living master in my life; however, my intuition has become much sharper and I am sometimes surprised by its accuracy. I believe this factit would be the result of believing and continuing a dialogue with the divine.
As you mentioned before, it is all divine messages and detoxification to have many dreams, get a high fever and sweat a lot. When we reach a consciousness that the divine works for our detoxification, we will be able to think, “Although I do not do it by myself, the divine does it for me because I am life.”

Listening to Jiiji, P said, “I have tried too hard to have the control myself.” Then, Jiiji said as follows:
You are a smart person, speaking in the modern way. You are so smart that you also have the perspective to see yourself objectively; however, then you fall into even more pitfalls. That is, you have pride that you have the ability to be able to analyze that much. Because of this, your realization that your life is given and supported will be delayed.
From such an analysis, we can say that humanity will begin to take the path to become healthy for the first time from now on. Now, a new cycle of 25,800 years has begun on earth. However, the history of 25,800 years ago is not directly connected to modern people. Therefore, a totally new era has begun. Modern people could just look forward to this, but they are worried because, although they have caused the modern chaos, they cannot find the cause for it. Above all, human beings have not yet mastered how to utilize themselves, which is of central importance. The coming chaos will make the contradictions even more apparent. They will be exposed because the light of the era has begun to shine. Therefore, if we learn from the modern contradictions, they will naturally disappear. Mega-disasters will soon appear everywhere in the world, but they should come, because we are in this era. If people can receive the true messages behind them, we should actually look forward to them. The reason why such disasters come is that people have not realized that they themselves have sowed the seeds for them. Perhaps if, before the disasters come, we humans realize this and the social system changes, such events will not occur. It is the same as with sickness. It does not have to be given to those who have become awakened.
This time, when I heard you were not feeling well, I thought, although I did not suggest anything to you, “The divine has given the finishing touches to you in this way.” In this sense, I think you have begun to have confidence about utilizing P-B. Our encounter with you was very important. At first I felt your case was quite difficult, but you came to achieve your purpose surely without going back that much. Therefore, if you summarize your experience in such a clear case and leave it to us, it would be a help for those who have not become awakened yet.

Now that she has mastered the way of thinking to be able to control herself, she has successfully graduated from the Natural Therapy Program after six weeks. Jiiji has said to her many times during the program, “By reversing your thinking patterns, you will have a useful ability not only to save yourself, but also other people.” Currently, she is more stable and says, “The Konohana community has given that stability to me. It is in my body, so I can take it back to the US. Now, I do not need to see the whole plan and know that new abilities and new tools will come one by one, so I can relax. This was a huge, huge lesson for me. I am looking forward to trying a new way of life from now on.”
It is our joy if you continue to live healthily. Above all, your healthy life means that the divine is with you. Let’s live a life to promote the awakening of humans as members of the earth community in the future. Again, congratulations on your graduation!

 


At the graduation concert which celebrates the care guest’s graduation from the Natural Therapy Program, Jiiji, who is in charge of the Program, gives a message to the care guest for their departure toward a new life. This time, it took more than one hour for both P’s Report and P’s Story to be shared. After that, Jiiji gave the following message to P and humanity.


 

“The Message from Jiiji to P”

Thank you for being with us for a long time today. If I talk as long as the reports from now on, I will end up giving you pains (laughter from everyone). However, since I have been asked to talk, I would like to talk a little bit.

It is February 16th, 2019 today, and the day of P’s graduation concert. However, for me, as a result of accumulating these days, I am in the middle of adjusting my mind toward “The Truth School” which will begin on February 24th. Right now, you have just had an opportunity to reflect on P’s work through the Natural Therapy Program by listening to P’s report and P’s Story; however, I was not just talking to people in front of me there, because if one person becomes happy, the earth will become commensurately healthy.

Since when have human beings become mentally sick? It is no doubt since the point at which people gained complicated egos and high abilities to gratify their desires. These abilities have been very attractive for human beings. However, as a result, we have given big challenges and trouble to other living beings on earth, which are also our family. Not only that, we are facing a situation in which we have to receive the contradictions brought about by what we have done. In fact, most modern people have completely deviated from the law of the universe, do not live each day with the consciousness of living in the universe, and have ended up encountering the current difficult phase of life and natural disasters. This is because, for a long time, human beings have tried to become happy and rich.

I always talk about the same thing, but it is because I would like people to remember their true value. P has worked on a 6-week project, and her theme has been her life. It is as if she completed the Truth School Program in the space of 6 weeks. The Truth School, which will begin on February 24th, provides participants with the opportunity to understand the true way of human beings in the course of one month. In keeping with this system, if P’s life becomes healthy and abundant, people around her will become happy, too. Human beings have forgotten this very simple law of the universe and nature in which everyone is linked to each other and creates together.

Currently, human beings have brought various issues to earth. In fact, we humans are like cancer cells for the earth, and cannot find the direction to move forward in the future. I think I always tell people the same thing, but this is my life. The Konohana members are my partners who can prove how important and beneficial it is for human beings to live according to the law of the universe and nature.

P is facing a graduation ceremony today, so we have gained another member who understands how important it is to live in this way. Eventually, we would like to create an abundant world where everyone can be happy together, rather than having a joy which tickles individual egos. Like other living beings, we humans have been brought down to the earth with this purpose. We will continue to provide the Natural Therapy Program to make people aware of the truth. At the same time, we also hope that those who have encountered the importance of this will work together with us and make the earth a beautiful place.

P is very intelligent and has a high analytical ability, so my suggestions to her have been very diverse. As a result, I have been very inspired by her. Also, Yoko summarized P’s story, and she successfully achieved a difficult task. Great job. I appreciate the divine for giving me this very important relationship with a deep connection to each other.

We are going to live to express the importance of this way of life on earth in the future, too. I would like to take this path with awareness. P, congratulations on your graduation. I really appreciate the encounter with you.

 

 

 

Water Spreads Peace and Harmony to the World!

Please Send Sacred Water from Your Region!

The Konohana Family is a farm based spiritual community at the foot of Mt. Fuji in Japan. We will hold “Fuji Sengen Konohana Matsuri (Festival)” during the Farmer’s New Year (end of January to early February). It is an important festival to purify people’s spirits and to rebuild the earth.

Sacred water is collected from all over the world and poured into one pot. This is the “Water Heating Ritual” which fuses these sacred waters into one water. Divinities and Buddha reside in the vapor which arises from the pot, and creates the setting for the festival to begin. 

Then, various sets of dancers dance around the pot all day long. Divine energy comes to the dancers through the vapor, and people can communicate and play together with divines by dancing with dancers, and the people get purified and given a new life energy. We will spread the energy of peace and harmony to the world with this vapor that is a mixture of diverse cultures. We believe it will greatly help to make this world harmonious in many ways.  You can see the film of the festival from this site.

 Please join us if you can. The next festival is planned on February 2nd, 2019.

Dance with three girls with a fan.

 

Sakaki Demon – The demons remind us to look into our darkness (ego) in our mind by staring at us.

 

Princess Seoritsu takes a role to purify this world through the action of water.

 

 

Four young men dance energetically for an hour and near the end of the dance they vigorously splash hot water in the pot using special brushes. All of the accumulated sin and disgrace is purified, and they can then begin the farmer’s New Year with purified body and spirit.
 

==============================================================

Instructions:

Please clean a small plastic bottle and pour sacred water (suitable water to use for this ritual such as spring water, water from a waterfall, temple, shrine, river or pond) from your region, but not tap water.

We only need a little – 30 ml is enough, and seal well.

Please write down the name of the region, country, and also your name, on the bottle.

When you send it by postal mail to us, so please write down the above and your address clearly.

Postal Address:
Michiyo Furuhashi,

==============================================================

On the next day of the festival, the ornaments and straw sandals are returned to the universe in the fire ritual.

In the water ritual, the fused and heated world water in the pot is returned to the earth through local river.

After the festival we will send you the sacred world water which was heated at the festival, a report and a small gift.

The water which you sent to us was fused into other world water and heated up in a pot. We danced around the pot all day long with praying the world peace and harmony. The water absorbs all the energy.

We would like to share the small amount of water for those who sent the water from your region, and if it is possible please return this water to your local river or ocean.

Hoping pure vibrancy will spread all over the world and true peace prevails on Earth. As you pour the mixed world sacred water to your local water shed, that means you will also join this sacred festival and take part in an important role to create the harmonious world.

Thank you for your cooperation!

Let’s make this world a peaceful and harmonious place together!

Konohana Family, Japan
