Daily Guiding Principles
 ー Written by Masami Saionji


Both medicine and pharmacology, as well as art and science, all of civilization and culture, originate from the divine wisdom of God. There is no need to detest all these just because they are contrary to nature. However, it doesn't mean that one should be completely immersed in them either. Wise individuals are those who can walk the middle path amidst these. At times relying on medicine and civilization, and at times not needing them. It's crucial to navigate through situations using the appropriate intuition and judgment, granted by the divine wisdom from God, according to the place and time. Humans should not live in a rigid, inflexible manner, leaning extremely towards one side or the other. Always living flexibly is something to aspire to. For this, becoming a person who can be sincerely grateful for everything is a necessary condition.


World peace is not something that can be brought about by any one particular saint or divine being.
World peace is established in direct proportion to the improvement of the soul of each and every person in humanity.
It is through each individual awakening to spirituality and through the great power of completion that the path of peace and harmony is achieved.
Therefore, it lies in the hands of each and every one of us.
It is also the responsibility of each and every one.
It is not about someone else doing it; you are one of all humanity who bears the responsibility for achieving that peace.
This must not be forgotten.
You must never do anything that would lower the level of all humanity for the sake of oneself alone.


The human heart is not so fragile, nor is it weak. When the heart is aligned directly with the heavens, divine wisdom flows straight into it, unleashing a power that can make even the impossible possible. Humans are inherently meant to be this way. Those who appear to have fragile and weak hearts are merely not aligned directly with the divine; their heart's tip has deviated somewhere, causing not all of God's energy to reach the body directly, but rather to be released along the way. This is similar to the difference between inserting a hose straight into a water tap and inserting it askew. When inserted askew, water leaks from the gap between the tap and hose, gushing and flowing away, so not all of it reaches the body, thus weakening the heart's power.


Let us always live by this principle: to fully embrace each day, speaking only words of goodness, love, and compassion, and refraining from uttering any harmful words. Should someone speak ill, let us have the wit to swiftly change the topic.
