Daily Guiding Principles
 ー Written by Masami Saionji


For humans, the greatest happiness lies in knowing that there are people in this world who care about them. Whether it be a spouse, child, parent, sibling, friend, or acquaintance, it doesn't matter who it is. It's about having someone who can be a pillar of support for your heart when you really need it. For this reason, we should aspire to be such a source of support for someone else. Especially Friends praying together for world peace are the most precious beings. I want to cherish them forever.


The one who obstructs your happiness is neither your husband nor your wife.
Not your children, nor your mother-in-law.
The one who obstructs you is yourself.
No one else but you.
Your incorrect thoughts, emotions, and knowledge are what obstruct you.
Happiness is not something that others can give you.
You must create it with your own hands.
For that, you must always unite your heart with God.


The beauty of a human being is formed by goodness and love. The joy and beauty of being able to serve others spill out from every line on a person's face, from their expressions, and even from the deepest engraved wrinkles, shining forth the joys and tastes of life, emitting a truly marvelous beauty. This beauty is unlike the superficial beauty of the flesh; it is a beauty that touches the hearts of those who see it, stirring within them the desire to embody such beauty themselves. The beauty of the spirit is indeed the greatest beauty.


One must always be close to good books. In particular, the writings of Goi Sensei (Master Goi), as they reflect the truth from heaven just as it is, should be read as much as possible, carefully, and repeatedly. One must grasp the essence until the truth becomes as clear as if it were in one's hand, from the depths of the subconscious mind. When one's heart is filled only with truth, one's way of thinking naturally aligns with that of the writings of truth, and one is no longer distracted by trivial matters, thus changing one's fate. If you wish your heart to be as clear as the blue sky at all times, it is recommended to read a page of Goi Sensei's writings every day.

※Masahisa Goi (1916-1980)

A proponent of world peace and the founder of the Byakko Shinko Kai. We affectionately refer to him as "Goi Sensei (Master Goi)" with gratitude in our daily lives.
