Daily Guiding Principles
 ー Written by Masami Saionji


The seed of the peony, though it may envy the modest and charming flowers that bloom in the wild, cannot bloom such flowers itself. The destiny of the peony seed is to bloom into a beautiful and vividly colorful flower. Similarly, every person has their own destiny, unique to each individual, and one must fulfill their own destiny. One should not imitate others or envy them, but rather clearly find and live according to their own destiny. This is the true path.


Illuminate the many troubled souls with your shining light. People seek your light and admire you as their strength. Your "Prayer for the peace of the world" attracts many troubled souls. There is no need to give anything. Simply pray in silence for the fulfillment of their destinies. The faces filled with sorrow will be filled with joy, and people will find peace.


What are the things we are given from heaven?
They are love, truth, beauty, joy, honesty, and brightness, among others.
Evil, strife, ugliness, darkness, worry, fear, anxiety, and suffering are not given to us from heaven, but are arbitrarily created by humans themselves.
If we simply accept what is given to us from heaven as it is, that is sufficient.
Then, everything will naturally fall into place, and we can smoothly navigate the course of life.


You were born into this world with a mission given to you by God.
You must not forget that the environment you are currently placed in is your precious mission at this moment.
It may seem to you an insignificant and trivial mission.
However, it is through the accumulation of fulfilling these small missions that one reaches a greater mission.
No matter the environment, it must never be neglected.
