“Having Entered the Mayan New Year, 2015” July 26th, 2015 by Isadon

 

Isadon's speech

On July 26th, 2015, a word came to me while I was participating in the ceremony of the Mayan New Year “11 MEN”. That is the word of “TIME.” About 20,000 years ago, the Mayan calendar started. Tracing that history and studying Katakamuna here in Konohana Family, it is said that there was the Mu continent in the biggest sea of the Pacific Ocean before Katakamuna civilization emerged. When the Mu continent disappeared, the civilization of “TIME” moved east and became the Mayan civilization. And the civilization of the soul of language moved west to the country of Yamato (the ancient name of Japan) that existed at the edge of the Eurasia continent about 13,000 years ago. About two years ago, we at Konohana Family encountered Katakamuna as a teaching. Last year, we met the Venerable Grandmother Nah Kin of the Mayan Solar Tradition and started to have a ceremony of the Mayan New Year here in the country of Yamato.

Looking back on that history, we had the winter solstice of the galaxy (which occurs every 25,800 years) on December 21st, 2012. When our planet, Earth, has the winter solstice it means the peak of the darkness with the least amount of light. We, on Earth, perform life activities based on the life energy of the sun. Moreover, all the lives are given the character of the self and create the times together. The winter solstice of the galaxy is 25,800 years (which is one spiral of the sun) came on December 21st, 2012 which coincided with the end of the Mayan calendar. This indicates that the Mayan people who took over the civilization of “TIME” understood such a universal and solar structure even in the ancient times.

turning point

We, Konohana Family members, have been preparing the mind to welcome a new era until now. Each one of us has learned the history of our unique mind, analyzed our karma, and has prepared in order to welcome the new era with the new mind. That is Konohana Family’s 21-year-old history.

Miraculously, we met the heliocentric calendar after the Tohoku Earthquake on March 11, 2011 occurred, which opened the door of a new era. Through meeting the heliocentric calendar, we came to understand that we do not live with our individual will, but receive the conversations of the stars and express the universal will in our lives.

We are preforming the ceremony of the Mayan New Year here at the foot of Mt. Fuji as the starting point of circling the Earth on July 26th, 2015 with such various meetings. This ceremony begins in the country of Yamato, Japan and goes around the Earth over the next 24 hours.

Please imagine that the minds of the universally conscious people become like waves on Earth, spreading their wings and circling the Earth. In fact, the Earth is round and we live in one world, while the times have been woven forever without any interruption.

There are still many conflicts and various difficulties on Earth. However, these were not created by anyone or anything but humans. It is the result of the fact that humans have lived utilizing their egos only for themselves. And, this has not been for a long period. Slipping back in time, it might have begun after the Industrial Revolution of about 250 years ago. Going back further, it may have begun about 800 or 1600 years ago. Before that era, humans were supported by nature and flourished with other lives as one of the parts in the network of life.

Now that we have entered the new era, the egos have reached their peak in humans. However, is this a really bad thing?

It is nothing of the kind. Humans needed to fully express their ability in order to know their high potential. Then, when they actually did it, the problems spewed forth. This is the current time. The “TIME” has arrived when humans will control the egos by the soul of language. Maya (the civilization of “TIME”) and Yamato (the civilization of the soul of language) have met, so this ceremony of the Mayan New Year has been held in the country of Yamato, Japan.

Thinking in this manner, we do not live only within the frame that we can understand. The times move by the conversations of the stars and that is the universal structure. We always repeat changes, transformation and transfiguration, and evolve in the system.

Let’s manifest the harmonious world on Earth again, imagining such a thing. We humans have an excellent ability and huge influence on Earth. If humans become aware of the truth, I can imagine that they will grow up to become a soul that will greatly contribute to the Earth and even the universe in the next era.

Overlooking Mt. Fuji

We have entered the 21st century and such an era has arrived at last. The door of a new era opened after the winter solstice of the galaxy on December 21st, 2012. We were given the preparation period of three years of 2013, 2014, and 2015. The year of 2015 is the last year. When this new year begins, people in the world will start to feel the flow of the new era and both humans and the Earth itself will welcome a new universal era!

If each one of us has the original path, Konohana Family is the one to express the universal will through this living as those who have realized it ahead of the world and have been awakened. I am sure that this will be reflected in the living of Konohana Family more and more in the future and will spread all over the world through the Earth network and the universe. I feel this gloriously sunny day is the proof of the divine will and would like to take the path consciously together with all of you.

Our path to establish the utopia on Earth began 21 years ago and now the times have caught up with us. People live with the 30-year cycle of Saturn and they know who they are for the first 30 years. Then, after knowing who they are, they express themselves in the life for the next 30 years. After that, they receive the result at the age of 60 and start the final preparation for the departure. We will weave a new era for sure during the next 10 years from the 21st to the 30th year of Konohana Family.

We live the universe, live the TIME and weave the era in such a sense. And there is our existence in the SPACE. Therefore, it is our purpose to live, observing our minds carefully and becoming aware of the universe, TIME and SPACE as the living being and the humans given a significant role.

Each one of us was given the original life by the universe. And we have entered the era when we should free ourselves from our egos and live for this world, receiving the divine will. That is a valuable and wonderful life. Let’s take the path with the responsibility for ourselves and high consciousness. And let’s realize utopia on Earth together.

Konohana Family

The Time When the Eastern Wisdom Blossoms

About 10 years ago, a Chinese woman visited Konohana Family at the foot of Mt. Fuji in Japan and said with excitement, “I learned about the ideal communism at my junior high school. Since then, I have dreamed of such a world, but could not find any in reality. However, I came from communist China to capitalist Japan today, and I have finally met the ideal communism here in Konohana Family that exists in capitalist Japan!”

Since 1981, the founder, Isami Furuta has received inspiration and provided advice on various social issues. Most of the people left him after their problems were solved. However, those who became interested in the structure of our mind and this world started to get together and formed the spiritual study group – later, many of them became the founding members. He also realized that human acitivies have damaged the beautiful Earth, so it is important to live in harmony with nature and all living beings on Earth.

In 1992 at the summit of Mt. Fuji-the mountain of the divine wisdom in the world, an inspiration hit him, “Preach the spirit that you have learned and mastered from the divine to the whole land under the Sun.” The whole land under the Sun is not only Japan, the Land of the Rising Sun, but the whole world. All living beings on the Earth live under one Sun, one soil, one water, one air and one wind. In order to transmit this spirit of oneness to the whole world, using Mt. Fuji as an antenna, in 1994, 20 members founded Konohana Farm, which was later renamed Konohana Family. The name “Konohana” comes from the goddess of Mt. Fuji, “Konohana Sakuyahime no Mikoto”.

The process of community development was not always easy. People in the modern society have lived only with their own will, tried to gratify their desires and considered that as their happiness. However, in the true meaning, the happiness of the individuals should match with that of the family, the country, all humans and the Earth. Also, modern people are not prepared to share their belongings including their hearts, and so were the Konohana founding members. In order to overcome that situation, it is essential to go beyond human egos and gain the broad worldview. In order to do so, what Konohana Family has valued the most since the foundation is to improve spirituality. Living in the universe means taking the path of eternal evolution, growth and changes. Each member has tried to get over his/her own ego by observing and facing him/herself seriously in daily life.

Currently, we have established a highly sharing community where about 100 non blood-related people, comprised of 80 members and guests, connect and support each other as one big family. The beekeeper who taught us how to keep bees said, “The Konohana Family’s lifestyle is exactly the same as the bees’ society!” That is the world where an individual does not insist on itself and exists for the whole throughout a lifetime. Later, we heard that Marx was interested in the bees’ community and assumed the spirit of the primitive communism based on the communism would have come from the bees’ ideal world.

Bees' society

As living beings on Earth continue to change and evolve, Konohana Family has been changing and evolving amazingly over 20 years. Our lifestyle is not only environmentally-friendly and socially sustainable any more, but beyond that conventinal ecovillage concept: We have coined the original term, the “Universal Circulation Method” for our unprecedented lifestyle. It is based on the cosmophysics of Katakamuna civilization that existed in Japan about 13000 years ago. 80 Katakamuna songs express the creation, development and destruction of the universe with the vibrancy of 48 sounds. The biggest characteristic of Katakamuna people is that they understood everything was made of vibrancy and lived with intuition in the community.

The Universal Circulation Method is reflected in every aspect of our daily life: agriculture, food, economy, social relations, education, childcare, environment, art, and medical care. Konohana Family is an agriculture-based community and, from the Katakamuna’s viewpoint, the Chinese character for Agriculture means to bend original life energy with human’s distorted thoughts to gratify desires and make money. Therefore, agriculture is not an original feature of nature.

ねぎ

Until we developed the Universal Circulation Method, we practiced organic agriculture without utilizing chemical pesticides or fertilizer. We started to keep chickens to use chicken manure in our fields and to cultivate our original Konohana microorganisms based on EM (Effective Microoraganisms) for manure fermentation, foliar application for crops, and feed and water for livestock. As a result, we became able to realize the healthy environments without odor and to produce safe crops. However, this cultivation method was far from our ideal, regarding low production volume and prevention of diseases. Then, our farming method has developed steadily through connection with a natural farming research center, and usage of green manure, carbon-rich materials, seaweeds and so on. Believe it or not, our current food self-sufficieny is 1000%!: we produce 10 times more that we actually consume. And in 2013, we finally met Katakamuna by fate and came to understand the back of the universal system.

 

What we do with the Universal Circulation Method is to resonate original universal vibrancy from the potential world in the fields (the phenomenal world) and to learn the universal system through growing crops. As a result, we will be able to receive beautiful crops with full of life energy. We resonate original universal vibrancy not only in the fields, but anywhere in daily life in order to make everything beautiful and full of life energy: when we cook, make miso and soy sauce, do the cleaning, play with babies and children, take care of bees and chickens, work in the office, make an attunement before the community meeting, and so on. Only when people try to improve spirituality in daily life and understand the universal system -everything spirals and circulates in the whole universe that consists of the potential and the phenemenal world, will the intuition to sense original vibrancy blossom in human consciousness. Through the meeting with Katakamuna, we have realizd that improving spirituality is the base of everything in this world and became convinced of the importance of our way of living that makes spirituality the first priority.

 

When the Chinese woman found the ideal communism in Konohana Family, we told her, “Our community was not established from the spirit of the communism. This is the world where we express the relationships of stars in the universe, the figure of the global ecosystem and the structure of our human body into our daily life. And this is exactly the ideal world over all religions and ideology where all humans will reach ultimately.”

 

On a global level, we have been facing many difficulties in the social, environmental, economic and mental aspects since we entered the 21st century. As a result of happiness which humans seek, what have human activities brought to the beautiful Earth? It is human mind that has caused all the global issues. No matter how advanced technology and superior architecture people develop and build, it could be beneficial or harmful, depending on human mind.

 

We live on the planet Earth travelling in the universe. We live under one Sun, one soil, one water, one air, and one wind. Above all, we live in the same time. Therefore, we are all brothers and sisters of one life and play a part of one life of the Earth in the Universal Circulation. In this way, all of our lives are supported based on the great universal system far beyond human wisdom.

 

This is the Eastern wisdom with holistic viewpoints and the Katakamuna’s worldview. When Katakamuna civilization came to Asia, Japanese islands were still part of Asian continent. Then, Katakamuna went to India via China, developed as Buddhism in India, mixed with Taoism in China later, and came back to Japan. In other words, the spirit of Katakamuna and Konohana Family’s community life already existes in the ideal of Chinese communism. That is why the Chinese woman would have sensed the ideal communism in Konohana Family.

turning point

Katakamuna remained under seal for about 6000 years. But now, it has become unsealed finally with the winter solstice of the galaxy on December 21st of 2012 which was the peak of darkness. The era has shifted from Western material civilization to Eastern spiritual civilization. Hana in Konohana means flowers in Japanese. Flowers here indicate cherry blossoms (the beauty of human lives), Japanese plums (the beauty of health), and peaches (the beauty of Utopia), which represent the countries of Japan, Korea and China. Originally, we are all brother countries. Therefore, it is important for us to get back to one and to establish the ideal East Asia in order to become a model for the world together. The whole land under the Sun expands from Japan, China, Korea, India, Asia to the whole world. The 21st century is the era during which the Eastern wisdom blossoms in the world.
