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