Relax your mind

We all have an ego that wants to be thought well of by others. When people criticize us for something, we are hurt or depressed because we cannot accept it.

All of these things can be said to be your mind creating suffering. Your mind is picking up suffering. It is your mind that sees criticism as negative and receives it as suffering, giving them value.

It is not that you are suffering because some person was mean to you, but that you are suffering because you are obsessed with it at the time and perceive it negatively as “oh trouble” or “oh I hate it”.

The same is true of stress. There are many causes, but most of them are actually caused by our own selfish beliefs. This includes the frustration that comes from expecting something and not getting it the way you want it, or the victim mentality that says, “I’m doing all this, and yet I’m the victim.

It is not that you alone live in the world, but that people and people, people and nature, and many other things are related to each other, so it is natural that things do not go your way.

What is a rich life?

There are occasional people who live in the city for a long time and then take the opportunity to retire from work and start living in the countryside. I believe and practice that the appeal of country life is a life where one can enjoy spending time and effort without being constrained by time.

The idea of how to efficiently use people, things, money, and resources to increase profits is that of a corporate organization, and I believe that one of the reasons for the increasing number of people who say they do not feel affluent is that individual lives are run in the same way, with efficiency as the top priority. Of course, there is also the problem that salaries have not increased in the past 30 years and, conversely, real wages have declined. ・・・・

However, simply put, today, you can get anything you need by paying for it, and as long as you pay for it, someone else will do everything for you. I don’t have to move a single body, and I don’t have to break a single sweat. Such a life may have the same goal of seeking something, but the process is completely different. In particular, since there is no history of one’s own passage of time, there are no hardships or problems that may occur during that time. Therefore, there is no need to make efforts to solve them. As a result, we have to live our daily lives without the emotions that are supposed to well up from within our bodies. I believe that it is important for people to “live with emotion and inspiration” in their lives, and I believe that this will enrich their lives. For more information, please read one of my book series “Wind Phone”. I am sure you will be able to feel something.

You will be exactly who you have been thinking and acting

In Buddhism, there is a concept called “the principle of cause and effect. When we look to the future with hope, the more positive we are about our lives, the more we believe that the future is not fixed, that fate does not exist, and that we can create our own future. When we get a good result, we never say it is fate. They will say it is because they worked hard.

On the other hand, when we look with regret at past events that have already happened, we have the feeling that they were destiny given to our lives. This means that we may feel that destiny appears only for results, and only for results that are incompatible with our will. Then we come to accept it as fate.

In order to make one’s destiny (outcome) good. The action that is the cause is important. William James, an American psychologist and philosopher, said that if you change your mind, you will change your actions. When actions change, habits change. When habits change, personalities change. When the personality changes, the destiny changes. Buddhism also teaches that changing one’s mind changes one’s destiny, and it is assumed that destiny exists in both the East and the West, and that it depends on one’s actions.

Therefore, it can be said that you become the person you think and act you are. If you sow the seed of a radish, it will grow into a radish, not a carrot. If you sow a sunflower seed, a tulip will never bloom. I believe that with one’s own “mindset,” one can come close to becoming a person, if not become one.

“The Phone of the Wind” and the presence of the soul

Through my experience of living in the mountains for a long time and communicating with animals and plants that do not speak human language, I thought that it would be possible to communicate and exchange feelings with those who have passed away by changing the way we view “death.

The life and death of a living being are connected on a single line, and death is considered to be an extension of life. We can think that just because a person dies and his/her body disappears, it does not mean that the person is gone, but that he/she still exists as a dead person. We humans not only have a physical body, but also a body of consciousness, including the senses, intellect, and mind, and we believe that the mind is the life force (energy) that controls all of these.

Without this idea, “The Phone of the Wind” could not have been created. Even after the death of a loved one, we can still use the “wind phone” to convey our thoughts and feelings. The ability to communicate with the dead is not an act of the five senses, which allows us to “see, hear, and touch” using the sense organs on the body before death, but rather an object of the mind, which allows us to “feel,” and we believe that this will be possible even after death. This is difficult to describe in words and has something in common with prayer and faith.

Life force (energy) is not only the power to live and vitality, but also the mind itself. Only when the mind has power can the power to think and the power to live be created. But where is that mind located in the human body and what form does it take? Is it the mind in the living, or is it the soul when it comes to the dead? I don’t even know if “soul = mind. It is precisely because no one knows, that we are able to communicate and exchange thoughts and feelings through the “Wind Telephone.

Then, does the “soul” of the deceased exist forever? I believe that the soul exists as long as there are people who knew the deceased, and that the soul also disappears when there are no more people who knew the deceased.

For more information, please read with my book “The Phone of the Wind”.

At the bottom of the healing process is prayer.

Today, seven people from Taiwan and one from Hong Kong are visiting “The Phone of the Wind”. Since the beginning of this year, visits from Europe, the U.S., and East Asian countries seem to be more frequent. However, more than 50 of “The Phone of the Wind” centers have been established around the world, and the number of people who are grieving is increasing due to such disturbing events as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria.

In order to heal people’s grief, we need to add “feeling” to the five senses (seeing, hearing, touching, tasting, and smelling), and only then will people feel healed. This feeling of something is important and is a movement of feelings that we all have, but it is difficult to express outwardly, and it is similar to prayer.

“The Phone of the Wind” has the unique feature of being able to “feel” the caller’s feelings, such as “I can’t hear anything, but I feel the caller’s feelings,” and “I can’t see anything, but I feel the caller’s feelings.

We believe that visitors to the “The Phone of the Wind” are healed by praying for their loved ones who have passed away.
