For the past few months, I've been in New Zealand running meditation tours. The energy of nature is so pure and strong here that when people spend time with it, simply and quietly, their own original nature emerges. Our original nature is in harmony with all other nature. When enough people reveal it and live by it, I believe a new spiritual era will also emerge, and the conflicts heating up around the world today will lose their fire.
For this reason, I bought land on the north island of New Zealand and discovered 12 places of enlightenment for tour groups to visit. So many things have happened since I first acquired the land. It was recently approved by the government as a holiday park, so now we are able to begin making it more comfortable for visitors.
In November and December, three groups of fifty to eighty people visited from the U.S., the U.K., Canada, South Korea, and Japan. For some of them, it was their second time on the tour. I met with each group of a couple of occasions. On one, I walked with them in a forest and showed them a 300-year old hwangchil tree and a 1000-year old kauri tree that I had discovered on the property. I tried to help each of them feel the energy of nature and have their own enlightenment through nature. Through their connection with the earth, I hope they grow to become people who live for the earth as Earth Citizens.
On the second occasion, I have them a special hwangchil soup that I made, and they put on a talent show filled with passion and energy. Many of the people were able to express parts of themselves that they've kept hidden until now.
At that time, I sent them energy and told them that we are all like wireless electronic devices. We can interact with nature through energy. We can receive energy and transmit it for the sake of the health, happiness, and peace of ourselves, other people, and the earth.
The amazing people who came on these tours were concerned for the earth and want to do more for the sake of the earth. I told them that when they leave the earth, they should leave with no regrets.
By the end of the tour we had all become united as one. I look forward to welcoming many more Earth Citizens to the Mago Holiday Park in 2016.
You are a creative soul. In the purity of nature, your soul can be born anew.
Imagine you hear the sound of the flowing water. Taste it with your whole body.
Release all superfluous thoughts, emotions, and preconceptions. Let the sound of the water carry them away as you feel your brain becoming lighter and brighter.
Entrust everything to the energy. Let the flow of energy take care of it for you. You don't have to try to do anything. You are designed to heal yourself naturally.
Just as you can't see air, you can't see the divine. God exists in the air. Through your nose and mouth, air has been constantly coming into your body since the moment you first cried at birth. The first action most of us took when we were born was to expel air out of our lungs, which was expressed as a cry. You need to exhale before you can inhale. When you inhale, God comes to dwell inside your body. Even when you're sleeping, God enters you, as long as you have life.
God is life, and the source of life. Air is also the source of your life. Can you live without breathing? No matter how much money or power or popularity you had, without being able to breathe, you couldn't live at all. So standing before God, you have to be humble. And when you breathe, you need to be humble.
God doesn't come to you because you pray and say, "Please come to me," or because you pay tithes or make sacrifices. Without any conditions or strings attached, the moment you are born, God comes into you with the air that you breathe.
It is said that God is in every place. If the God of oneness is in every place, then wouldn't the God of oneness also be inside your body? God is always with you, complete and perfect.
What feels the divine inside you is your spirit. When you feel your divinity within, that's what enlightenment is. If you cannot feel your divinity within, then even if you have it, it's like you don't have it.
Because God is in all of us, we are all equal. Everyone is precious because we all have God inside our bodies. That's what makes each person divine and sacred, and that's why you deserve to receive respect. When you can feel your divinity, you have an awareness or consciousness that let's you respect all other people.
Unfortunately, we are living in a world where people are losing their love and respect for one another. When people try to possess and own other people and control them, then that is not godly. You could say that those people have fallen or become corrupt.
A sense of the divine in everything can be found in all of the ancient traditions and cultures of humanity. But that kind of spirit and sense, through the development of modernity, has been lost in many cultures. It's been overtaken by the artificial--everything has become so artificial and synthetic or processed. Through this development, we've grown more distant from the divine and the natural.
God was already there before manmade institutions such as religions and nations ever existed. The answer, then, to regaining your sense of the divinity inside you is not in manmade systems, or even in an enlightened teacher. Everything you need is already inside you. If you have a brain, then you've got it all. The answers are in your brain, beyond your preconceptions and learned knowledge. The brain was not made by human beings, but by God the creator; it's also nature. I think of nature as God.
Return to the divine by returning to what is natural. God is in every breath you take. Breathe quietly with this awareness today and be enlightened to the divinity that is always with you.
Oftentimes, an ocean raging with rough waves and storms makes us afraid and uncomfortable. However, from the viewpoint of the Tao, these are all part of a natural process of change and purification. A silent ocean without waves or storms is a dead ocean without any life.
A person who knows the Tao does not fear the waves and storms of the ocean. Flow with the Great Wave of Life created by nature, and burn each and every moment of your life for the value and dream that you believe in. Use all circumstances as an opportunity to awaken, choose, and act.
I suggest actualizing a lifestyle that benefits everyone, including the earth, by circulating positivity and hope. You can do it if you view the world with the eyes of Tao. Then, the energy of change that is sweeping many corners of the globe can become the soil for your dreams.
I dream of a world filled with love for humanity and love for the earth. In my dream, human beings practice Earth Management. We look at the whole earth and manage its resources in a sustainable way that allows all people and other creatures to live healthfully and happily in harmony with nature. This dream can only be achieved through each and every moment of each and every person's life whose consciousness is awake. These people are the hope of the earth and the hope of humanity.
To awaken people's body, mind, and conscience, open their Tao eyes, and empower them to live with positivity and hope, I developed Brain Education, and more recently, Belly Button Healing and its Healing Life wand. Belly Button Healing uses the powerful acupressure point of the belly button to activate and circulate your body's internal energy, maximizing its natural healing ability while clearing any negative emotions and brightening your spirit.
Then, centered in the Tao, with sparking eyes of light and a healthy body of activated internal energy, you can heal your family and community. This world needs this now more than ever.
