Daily Guiding Principles
 ー Written by Masami Saionji


What you need right now is to find the path to complete freedom by your own hands. Freedom from mental constraints, freedom from physical constraints, and freedom from the complications of human relationships. You must be free in every aspect. There is no need to be bound by anyone. Live freely as you wish. There is no life more fulfilling than one in which you choose your own path and make your own decisions.


Why do humans live each day so constrained? It is because they unnecessarily follow thousands of trivial, frustrating rules created by others and themselves. Imagine how much lighter life would be if one could free oneself from even half of these pointless rules made by insignificant humans using one's own efforts. However, freeing oneself from these rules requires true courage. Moreover, the more one can escape from these rules, the closer one can get to God. This is because there is only one absolute law of God.


Have you ever once imagined a version of yourself that manifests the appearance of God? An image of yourself surrounded by all people, loved, adored, respected, yet boasting nothing, natural, bright, loving, humble, gentle, and shining beautifully. An existence where divine wisdom precedes all actions, where everything you undertake is successful, and there is nothing you cannot do. Such a version of yourself, for whom living for others is the greatest joy, is our true form as "children of God" bestowed upon us humans.


When you try to manipulate someone, inevitably, you will also be manipulated by someone else at some point. Everyone should live freely. If you wish to always be free, you should respect the freedom of others and not bind anyone to anything.
