Daily Guiding Principles
 ー Written by Masami Saionji

1.

O gallant youth, soar to the heavens.
Ascend into the vast sky.
Listen intently to the voice of the heavens.
Do not lend an ear to what parents say, nor to what teachers say, nor to what adults say, not at all.
It is because they all speak in unison, only in a way that is convenient for themselves, for the schools, and for society.
Parents try to raise their children in a way that suits them.
A good school, a good society – it's highly questionable whether these are truly for the benefit of the children.
Especially if a child harbors a great ambition and chooses a path contrary to their parents, the parents become infuriated, feeling betrayed, and end up grieving.
Such utter nonsense.
Youth, listen to the voice of the heavens.
Cultivate your intuition and reveal the divine truth.
But never forget to repay the kindness of your parents.

2.

While living on this earth, the thoughts one has had and the actions one has taken, the file of such sentiments, as is, becomes something that reflects that person's life in the afterlife. In the end, the way one lives in this world becomes everything in the next.

3.

Animals may experience pain, but they have no fear of death. The fear of death is a special emotion given only to humans. However, even among humans, there are those who face death with fear and those who welcome it with joy, and the degree of pain and fear they experience naturally differs. Death is merely a process of shedding an uncomfortable and confining physical body to transition to a free and bright world. Death is not something to be feared.
