now or never

“Things happen for a reason.”

We hear this when something
undesirable happens.

By reasoning so, we try to see the positive side of things, or
try to maintain positive attitude.

When something undesirable brings about something better,
we confirm this idea that we have to embrace and endure undesirable things because they lead to something meaningful.

We’ve seen countless disasters and sufferings this year.
Many are right in the midst of them.

“Why these things happened to me?”
“Why do I have to go through such misery?”


New year’s resolution is not my thing,
but for this coming year, i plan to write down a few.

If you’ve always wanted to do something,
but for various reasons, have kept putting off,
now is the time.

Time is always shorter than we expect.
Time always passes faster than we hope.
Time is always against us.

now or never.

It’s 2012.

visible or invisible

Let’s be realistic.
We don’t know much about what happens to us when we die.

If you believe in afterlife, do you think you will have the same face, same voice, and same character? Or, do you think you will feel like a saint all of a sudden?

Do you think you will be full of life and energy as soon as you shed your physical body? No more sickness or hardships?   

After we die, we no longer have physical body, so, it’s logical to think that all physical senses will go away. It’s also natural to expect that some kind of non-physical body will take over the role of expressing ourselves.

According to Reikongaku, we have this non-physical body called yutai which overlaps with our physical body for the entire time we live in this world.

Unfortunately, yutai is not a perfect super body, and it does get injured, infected, or damaged.

What’s more important is that the condition of our yutai at the time of death determines where we end up. We won't have much choice there.

Reikongaku has been trying diligently to inform people about this, and the way to condition our yutai so that after we die, we will enter into the best possible environment.

This is heavy.

i think this is the most important subject for all human kind.  Any of the superior philosophy or teachings will mean nothing if they don't lead you to happier afterlife…

if you believe in afterlife that is…

real or not real

The term "non fiction" used to appeal to me.

A claim that it really happened, made it seem meaningful.
Fiction, on the other hand, felt like it was a controlled reality.

Now, these terms mean nothing to me, fiction or non fiction.

Everything that materializes in any form,
anything that i can sense,
i take it as real.

Even a story made up in some stranger's head,
even a child's interrupted dream,
it really doesn't matter.

Because anything can happen, anything can be real.
We just don't know it until we decide to know it.

Story of Taroh's initiation into spiritual world,
illustrated by good friend, MM, was just uploaded.

fiction or non fiction, you are the one to decide.

this way or that way

Our spiritual body is distinct from our physical body.

We, spirits, need physical bodies
to express ourselves in this world,
but other than that, we’ll be fine without them.

Physical bodies, on the other hand,
do not work without us spirits.
A body is often referred to as a vehicle. 
i think that’s a good metaphor.
Every day, we, spirits, operate this highly complicated
mechanism called body.

Each vehicle is unique.
One may work better than the other.
One may last longer than the other.

Can we choose which vehicle to drive?
That, i don’t know…
But i think each drive has very specific purpose and goal.

We don’t just drive around in our cars.
We plan to get somewhere, meet someone,
do something.

In this scenario,
Reikongaku plays a role of the latest navigation system.
It’ll show us how to get there,
in the fastest, the safest, and the surest way.

The latest navigation system... oh yes, that's what it is.

today or tomorrow

Death is an event that we all encounter one day.
Where there is life, there is death.

No life can avoid it, escape through the crack,
or be forgotten.

If there is anything equal in this world for everyone,
it has to be death. It will come to you, it will come to me.

What’s not equal is how it comes.
Some die young, some die in pain, some die in vain.

What’s not equal is where we end up.
We don’t know how it will be.

We hear different stories.
Good will go to good place, bad will go to bad place.

i used to think that i’m in a range of fairly decent person.
Nobody will object to my entering into heaven.

How silly and obnoxious that was.

Who would tell you that you are a good person? 
You?  Your family?  Your friends?  Your enemy?
Good can be bad, and bad can be good. We all know that.
This cannot be an universal ticket to heaven.

Then what?

Reikongaku says,
what determines your destination is the condition of your spiritual body at the time of death.

That’s all there is.   Simple, logical, and convincing.

What’s not fair is that most people haven’t had
the opportunity to know it.

But, is it really the case?

It’s never too late. Let’s find out.

plus or minus

Mechanism of human reproduction is amazing.

After multiple decades of heavy usage, human body can still create another brand new human body (baby).

Everything new out of everything old. How fascinating!   

Assuming that you believe in spirits…do you think baby’s spirit was created by parents, or is it a part of parents’ spirits?

Reikongaku says:  body and mind? Yes.  Spirit? No.

According to Reikongaku, spirits are something that have been in existence for much longer time, and for some reason, only tiny part of them were pulled into physical world to be born as babies. This is also called reincarnation.

So, each baby, although its body and mind are brand new, its spirit is pretty old in worldly term.

But at birth, spirit is just as tiny and innocent as physical body. It does not remember anything from its past.

Reincarnation is often perceived as rebirth of individual consciousness in its entirety, that is, when i die, i will retain my consciousness the same way i do now, and when i’m born again, my entire consciousness will be born again as well.

Reikongaku explains differently. When i die, i will retain my consciousness the same way i do now, but what will be born again is only a tiny part of me that i won’t even know when that happens.

Why not the entire consciousness? What part of it will be born again? What for?

By asking, you just opened an entirely new series in the study of Reikongaku.

Reincarnation can add or subtract. When we were born, we didn’t start from zero, we started from minus…

this or that

Reikongaku talks about reincarnation, but not in a way most people have heard before.

Reikongaku receives information directly from higher spirits.

Once you decide to trust this link, and open up to the wealth of information poured in from above, you will find that so much of the human mysteries can be explained and understood to an amazing degree.

Trust involves faith or belief beyond uncertainty. Nothing can be proven to the point there is no room for objection. Even science evolves because there are always rooms for further experiments and developments.

No matter what we do, uncertainty cannot be avoided, which means there is always some risk.

Of course i want everyone to trust and accept reikongaku, but i know it’s impossible, and i don’t blame anyone.

Free will is the most powerful asset all human beings are equipped with. It doesn’t look that way, you might say. And i agree. It doesn’t look that way.

But ultimately, free will and its consequence are what we all must embrace.

Free to accept, free to shun, free to be saved, free to be doomed.

oops... will go back to reincarnation… next time.

in or out

i am into spirits, that is, spiritual study and spiritual training.

i recall the very first time i consciously thought of someone called God.

i was in kindergarten. The school was run by catholic church, and at graduation, each student received a gift, a thick black covered bible.

i remember opening the big book and read the first sentence.

“In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.”

Wow! God can do that?

i imagined the darkness, then the light, water, land, plants, animals…

A few lines were the most i could read back then, after that, the book was never opened, left alone in the back shelf for over 10 years.

i went to Christian high school. This may sound unique, but the country i grew up in, kids were mostly of Buddhism lineage, but went to Christian schools with no hesitation. And schools accepted students regardless of their religious background. 

We attended service every morning and studied bible every week. Though i was rebellious to the know-it-all attitude of faculty faces, i always had deep respect to Jesus, the person i only knew from my bible studies.

i was never into religion. But i think my attachment to Jesus always kept me searching for something beyond my ordinary senses.

There is a book titled "Spirit Jesus" written by the master of Reikongaku. 

The book, like all other books written by the master, is inspired by higher spirits. It talks about the life of Jesus from the time he was born on earth through modern day in the twenty first century.

Throughout the history, he has always been very active with the lives of people. 

Now i know that Jesus, Buddha, and Krishna, among other superior spirits, are great buddies to one another, and that they all have a lot to say to us.

easy or difficult

Why do you live? What for?

i keep asking the questions. And i keep asking "why?".
Before long, i notice that we live to be or feel happy, comfortable, safe, content, satisfied...
The state without worry, threat, pain, discomfort, fear, sorrow...

No matter where we live and how we live, we try to attain more. Individuals differ greatly, but ultimately, we all keep struggling and fighting to attain what we think happpiness.

Reikongaku often comments on human struggles and hardships.

It's human nature to avoid or eliminate hardships.  Physical bodies and minds seek comfort.
Is it right or wrong? It's a different story.

If we free ourselves from all relationships, responsibilities, and obligations in society, and live in a far away temple and meditate all day every day, we might reach the state of still and peacefull minds.

But, spiritual growth and development require those hardships. Focusing on avoiding them all the time will never help us.

If we live in a society, interact with other people, minds will be stirred and distructed.

Those harships and struggles are indeed the essential ingredients for spiritual growth. Higher spirits coming all the way down near our level to help and guide us chose to live that way.

We still try to avoid hardships as long as we are in physical bodies.

Even then, knowing that hardships are integral part of our lives, and spiritual growth comes from living through them may change our way of thinking.

Only if it leads us to spiritual growth.

fiction or nonfiction

Information is overwhelming.
With the internet search at my fingertips, i always get more information than i can digest.

Is the more the better?  i say not necessarily..
It takes more time to read and understand, compare and analyze.

i don’t know how much of the information online is reliable or not, but % for unreliable must be quite high, and everything i read or hear, i need to make a personal decision. i often need to rely on my instinct. Especially when things are not validated by cold facts, it’s up to the reader to decide.

Talk about existence of spirits involves this personal decision. Existence has not been proved scientifically to satisfy the majority,  but the same is true for non-existence. It's unlikely that proof will be available either way because we’re talking about something non-physical which is outside of science.

Ultimately, accepting the existence or non-existence of spirits depends solely on each person’s judgement, or gut feeling.

Still, truth is either they exist or don't exist. 

Before going through never ending information and debates, i chose to believe their existence, and proceed with it. Now all i want to know is what they are, how they are, and why they are.

i think i made my life simpler by making that decision.

sunset or sunrise

The background picture looks sunset to me. When i asked my friends, one said it looked sunrise to him. The other said that you really cannot tell from the picture if it's sunset or sunrise unless you know where the picture was taken.

i realized that everything, more or less, is like this. Things are the way one sees it. The way i assume, or believe, or expect, that's often the only way to see things.

If there is truth, however, that truth must be the only truth regardless of how i see it or understand it.
The only truth that i think i've found so far is that we are all spirits. That's the big truth, the big picture. Now i need to know the details.

i've always wanted to know the truth, the truth about us, and i met Reikongaku. Out of all the great masters and teachings, i met Reikongaku. This was in spring of 2005.
