June is the season when Japanese hydrangea is blooming beautifully. Just by watching the beautiful flowers, a happiness of being alive and gratitude is born within my life. From the evening sky and the mountain-scape I see while driving from Tokyo to Mt. Hiei, I think about my life, living in Japan. On the mountain path of Mt. Hiei, I encountered several deer. Sensing a gentle gaze when arriving at my atelier, I turned my eyes and there was a star that always talks to me, shining with a conspicuous glow that greeted me. When my life is touched by the life of nature, I always gain peace of mind and am comforted. I continually feel that there are hardship and sadness when living as a human, however when I feel the life of nature that is always there with me, the way I live is straightened and organized to continue to “live.” No matter what may happen, I believe that being born as a human, one should live as a human and that is what a human life is about. When I see the mountains, trees wet in the rain, flowers blooming sweetly in the fields, grasses growing strongly and bravely, the Japanese hydrangea flowering beautifully and strongly as the rain falls heavier, the infinitely clear sky-scape, and when they touch my life, I think about life. I wish from the bottom of my heart for everyone to be able to live happily and vigorously. If we live, considering and concentrating on living a happy life and live so as to understand what a human is, sorrow or hardship will gradually disappear. I sincerely hope that each one of us will think about life, work to live a fortunate life as a human and create a good society where everyone can live with vigor. I always entrust my heart to the infinite world far beyond the sky and wish to live in unity with Great Being, I leave my feelings, looking up at the vast sky. To be able to live, receiving guidance by Great Being, I will honestly express my feelings, and to Great Being… Thank you very much.
11th Jun. 2019 / in Tokyo
Thank you very much for the concert at Mitaka today, June 11th. Only the future existed, no past. Future, future, future—the state at the concert became the word "future." As we heard in the concert message, we receive unlimited energy pouring in from the universe, and it is everyone's wish to live healthily and happily, beautifully and strongly. That state of being was exactly what I experienced at the concert today. I feel truly blessed.
Thank you very much.
An infinitely transparent and beautiful world,
A single shining blue star,
An eternal soul.
The 19th king of Koguryo, Gwanggaeto the Great,
Was born under a light of Heaven,
In a world of war.
He continued to fight, and continued fighting.
He became a young king,
Leading the vanguard ahead.
He was challenged to risk his life in the middle of enemies.
The enemies, admiring the beauty of the young king,
Left without fighting.
He met desirable people to live together with,
Who became people of Koguryo, so we hear.
A wind was blowing in the land of the Gwanggaeto the Great, an infinity, an eternity, a clear mind.
He lived and kept his purest soul.
He entered into the enemy with an intention not to sacrifice anyone else's life.
He continued to fight.
There was a limit in this world, and
There was a limit in Heaven, he realized.
Soon or later far beyond Heaven,
An infinite world would be opened. Believing so,
He lived and fought together with Heaven.
Why could a human not live without a fight?
Why could a human kill a precious life?
He questioned the infinite world.
Soon or later, far beyond Heaven,
A time in which a light of the origin would appear,
A time in which many souls would accomplish their wish,
While knowing that there was a limit in Heaven,
A sorrow through his life with Heaven,
was engraved on the ground.
A time in which the land of sorrow would turn into light.
He continued to wish even after death, continued working,
He continued to make a time which would open far beyond Heaven
An appearance of a light of the origin,
An infinite world, opened far beyond Heaven.
All souls would wake up, revive, and gather.
The Beginning of a new era of new human beings.
Brilliantly and beautifully shining internality manifests the authentic state of our life full of love.
In my teens, I suffered from many diseases almost in every part of my body and experienced life and death crises several times. In such a critical moment I shed tears with slight hope. And after a dozen of years of investigations, I realized the source of hope I had embraced as an eternal bearing for opening up a future. By properly acknowledging the internal conditions of my body, I discovered that communion with another person’s life happened within my body and not only mine but another person’s physical or mental pains and a state of illness can be nursed gradually or rapidly owing to the nature of human life that could meet others in a much broader and unknown dimensional space. I did not need to operate consciously nor wish to make this process happen: towards unity with nature, everything happened just naturally and repeatedly. Now my piano improvisations express this marvelous encounter with people at a very deep level of human life so that each of you may realize an authentic state of love and realize that your life is indeed shining on to eternity in this vast universal space.
