Daily Guiding Principles
 ー Written by Masami Saionji


Life can be likened to a tapestry woven by the encounters and interactions of a diverse array of people.It is precisely for this reason that life can be declared wonderful.Through the meeting of people, a myriad of possibilities arise, allowing one to craft their unique pattern in the tapestry of life.It is never too late to start.Embrace new encounters wholeheartedly.They bring something new to you, something you've never had before.Avoiding others will never pave the way to a fulfilling life.So, without reluctance or inconvenience, and without hesitation, boldly forge ahead.Towards a splendid tomorrow.Continuously seeking something new.


Happiness exists everywhere.

It's right near us, within easy reach.

Happiness always surrounds us.

It is always ready.

It's not something far away or elusive.

To put it more succinctly, happiness exists within ourselves.

There are many people who seek happiness but cannot find it.

Despite it being right near those who seek it, they often remain unable to grasp it.

Those who cannot find happiness are people who truly do not understand what happiness is.

Happiness is not a reference to some special or exceptional state.

Happiness is something that shines within the ordinary, always present.

In other words, those who seek but cannot find happiness are people who are not aware of the happy heart within themselves.

A happy heart is one that can feel and spontaneously generate gratitude for even the most trivial things in daily life.

For those who lack a heart of gratitude in their everyday life, it's impossible for happiness to come.


The more good deeds one does for others, the happier one becomes oneself. God's light increases and everything becomes fulfilled. In addition, feelings of fulfillment, satisfaction, improvement, and accomplishment arise, making one increasingly eager to serve others. Those who pray the 'Prayer for the peace of the world' live by this as a matter of course.


To draw out the 'Infinite Possibility' that is equally bestowed upon every human being, there is no alternative but to exert effort. Through the act of striving, humans make their own the infinite potential already granted to them. If you spend your days without effort, your lifetime of infinite potential will remain dormant until the end. It is crucial to awaken to your own divinity as soon as possible. By awakening, the environment and circumstances you have lived in until now will rapidly transform, and a wonderful world will begin to surround you and take shape.
