Comment from reader: By reading the last blog, a thought came to me. There is a traditional way to process silver ore into pure silver. To explain the process briefly, you let the bone ashes absorb impurities. The impurities along with lead will eventually be all absorbed by the ashes and only pure silver remains. I felt that the human world is the same. In order to become pure, we mix the impurities and refine it to become the genuine element. I want to try not to become the impurity. I thought that the elevation of the dimensions might be just like this chemical phenomenon.
Reply: In the World of Reality, the dimension we live in, all levels of souls are gathered in one place. No matter what sort of environment you are raised in, some do cruel things and some try to help others. For our hearts to mature, both good and bad influences are necessary. The only place where hearts can mature is in this World of Reality. In other dimensions, even in the World of Gods, there is an order where hearts could not mature. It remains in the same condition as when you had entered the dimension.
Even if you’ve managed to have any negative interference in your social life, you might have some health problem and need interference of others in the process of your treatment. As long as you live, you will be interfering with others. Both positive and negative stimulations are necessary for us to mature. When you have recognized that you had received an impure stimulation, simply let it go along with the same quality that you had with you. If people say bad things about you, simply let it go and stop doing the same to others. If people said good things to you that made you happy, do the same to others. If you continue to work on this process, what kind of heart do you think will remain?
This is the same idea of alchemy in the Western mysticism. Alchemy was about purifying a substance into a pure material. This also implicates the idea to change human souls into a pure and harmonious one. The aim was to become one with god. A man who had practiced this in his real life in Japan is Kūkai*. Kūkai was very knowledgeable about minerals. Some experts explain the reason why he opened a temple in Mt.Kōya is because the area has a rich underground vein of mercury. When Kūkai was studying in China, I sense that he was introduced to the Western alchemy and attained a secret ritual that has something to do with the correlation between mercury and the human spirit body. The temple complex built on Mt.Kōya, the pillars are painted in 朱色, vermillion color. To make this particular paint, mercury is used. Layers of vermillion that is made with mercury is also used as a base coat on the Buddhist statue.
Actually, Ise is also a producing center of mercury from the ancient times. Ise district has a rich underground vein of mercury. The color of the circle of light that represents the sun goddess, Amaterasu-Ohomikami witnessed through my vision at Izawa-no-miya of The Grand Shrine of Ise is exactly this vermillion color. Mercury is the most adequate mineral that is necessary to create a color that expresses the most significant god. The spiritual vibrational energy that is radiated from mercury is exquisite and gives effect to stabilize human brain-wave.
Thank you for letting us live
