The black hair of Koguryo women.
In ancient times of Koguryo kingdom,
From the scent of black hair, it is said,
People saw a certain time in the future.
Love is the core of life at all times.
The women of Koguryo who committed to the truth
We live together to realize the truth.
Our earnest wish will be realized.
In an ancient capital, I encountered the souls of my ancestors.
A nostalgic aroma.
The truth of souls I know deep inside my heart.
A slope in old times.
A wind blowing at the time of walking the path in ancient times.
I know the wind.
In the heat of summer,
A pleasant wind blows.
People worked at all times for their descendants.
The time of truth revives.
At the foundation of the ancient capital,
I see souls of my ancestors.
Souls awaken and revive.
We live together
To open up a human era where eternal souls shine forever.
18th Jul. 2019 / at Biwa lake
Today we held the “Legends of Koguryo Rediscovered” concert at Biwako Hall by the lake.
One day, guided by souls, I happened to stand next to Lake Biwako, and I was surprised to hear an unexpected message. After that I came to build some buildings as bases on Mt. Hiei close to the lake. I had not planned any of them. They were built because I followed the true demands of my life at any given time. I’ve come to feel recently that that is why people often become suspicious of our activities. It’s now clear to me that they don’t understand the way of living true to one’s deepest demands.
Today as I listened to the ripples of Biwako, I heard a message from the bottom of the lake. The sound taught me that Japan is a country where gods dwell. We have to regain beautiful Japan and become beautiful people. That is indeed a human. How other people are do not matter. Each person is to live beautifully. And that is a human being. To have come to learn that, I am grateful that I had a chance to come to Biwako today.
From the sound of Master Idaki Shin’s drums at the concert, I saw God had manifested. I shivered in awe. I wondered if anyone won’t understand such a thing because I felt that it was obvious to everyone. I understand from seeing light-scapes. God was manifested yesterday and today, and it was moving more today than the day before. Japan will change, the world will change, and humanity will change. I’m delighted to feel that things transform day by day.
Tomorrow is Nara. When I went there last week for my lecture events, I realized that Nara had changed. Though I’m not sure how the land might be tomorrow, I feel that layers are being stripped off and the beautiful capital, it once was, will revive. I look forward to tomorrow.
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.
