Mr. David Atkinson (Ex ALS patient)

I'd like to introduce a DVD that we produced 10 years ago.

We interviewed Mr. David Atkinson, who used to suffer from ALS(Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). His symptoms started when he was 54 and within several months, he couldn't move - he couldn't even roll over on his side when lying on his bed by himself.

However, he started Edgar Cayce for ALS and his symptoms gradually lessened. And when I met with him in Arizona he had flown there by airplane by himself. He was able to walk, talk, and eat by himself.

In this interview we talk about what he did for his medical treatment and what he did as Cayce treatments. This is not a "how to" video about how to use the Cayce remedies. He is talking more about the mental and spiritual aspects. In particular, he said it is very important to have a good mental attitude and have hope for the future. He also talks about spiritual study.

When I met him, 10 years ago, naturally he didn't look like a healthy person. He spoke very slowly, and he had to eat with great concentration as it was very hard for him to swallow. While he was suffering from ALS he was unable to eat or drink through his mouth, so he still needed to take care when eating.

However, he said that he may look like an unhealthy person, but in fact his health is very good, he is able to do everything by himself and is enjoying his life. Before he had ALS he was a very successful businessperson, but afterwards he became a very spiritual person. One of the biggest effects of this disease is that it forces you to get in touch with your spiritual side and live more spiritually. The cure is not just about getting massages and other treatments. It's all about how you think and live each day.

Edgar Cayce gave only one reading for ALS patients unfortunately. So, we cannot compare many readings. But Cayce gave many readings on Parkinson's, and MS and other similar diseases, so if you are interested in these, you can read his reading on them.

The interview is in English, with Japanese subtitles. We hope this interview will give some hope for the ALS patients and their families.

The law of the jungle

I found this Q&A on a website, and it was very interesting. I feel this is an important message for everyone. The original is in Japanese, and I have translated the main points so it is much shorter than the original one.

Q: We have a "law of the jungle" and I know that this is an inappropriate question, but in nature some animals eat the weaker animals - this is the law of the jungle. So, I wonder why in human society, we don't have that law of the jungle. Long ago, when small groups of people went to battle, the weaker group were killed by the stronger group. Nowadays though, the society supports the weak, using our tax money. I think the fact that strong genes survive is natural providence. In other words, we no longer have natural providence. Please tell me what you think about this, but without talking about human rights.

A: I think you are misunderstanding something. In nature, there is no "law of the jungle". There is no guarantee that just because you are strong you will not be eaten, and similarly you will not necessarily be eaten just because you are weak. For examples, tigers are stronger than rabbits, but rabbits are surviving all over the world, and yet tigers are on the verge of extinction. At an individual level, there is a law of nature. And in the end, every individual will die. The length of a life is different but from the viewpoint of nature, there is no difference. One dog may live 2 years, another dog may live 10 years, there is no meaning.

At the species level, it is "survival of the fittest", however most people misunderstand what this actually means, and it is not the "law of nature". The "survival of the fittest" doesn't mean that strong creatures survive, it means that creatures most suited to the environment will survive. And it doesn't mean survival of an individual creature, but that their genes are passed onto the next generation. In nature, there are many ways we can adapt successfully to the environment. For example, it is not necessarily the fast-acting creatures that survive, it is also possible for the slower, less-active creatures to survive too.

There are lots of different kinds of creatures, fast, slow, big, strong, weak, small and so on. There are many different forms in nature. As long as that form is suitable for nature, there is no need to consider if they are "strong" or "weak", the most important thing is whether they are suitable or adapted to the environment. If one individual lives for ten years and has one baby and there is another individual that births ten babies, but only lives for a year, the individual who births ten babies is more suited to the environment.

For our species, survival means to continue to the next generation. We have a lot of strategies to do this. Each living creature has different strategies on how to survive and continue the next generation. For human beings, we have a survival strategy and that is "society" and being social. In other words, helping each other and supporting each other to live longer and make sure that the human gene is continued into the next generation. The proportion to which we can survive as a species (human beings) depends on how we help each other. It depends on the power of society. Our society is more advanced than ever before and in the past weaker people would have died but now we are able to help them survive. We are doing a good job of passing on our genes to the next generation.

We don't need to be concerned about passing on the best genes possible - in fact, it is the effective genes that are important. We cannot know what kind of environment will lead to which genes being passed on. In society, if someone is handicapped we do not know whether in the future they might in fact have an effective gene that is needed. We just don't know. And so in human beings there are many different patterns and forms of humans. This is our insurance to make sure that humans survive and carry on into the next generation.

In the Amazon jungle, we can't survive alone. In the huge expanse of nature, humans are very weak. We are all weak when compared with nature. We need society in order to survive. This is why we have society, it is our survival strategy for humans. Humans have come together to support each other in order to ensure that the human gene continues into the future.

We are all weak. To cooperate with each other is our survival strategy.

A way to improve our life greatly

Last spring, 6 students graduated from the Contemporary Feng Shui Advanced Class and they became Feng Shui consultants in Japan.

Several days ago, I met with one lady and heard a very interesting story from her.

After she became a Contemporary Feng Shui consultant, although she lives in Tokyo, she was able to do many consultations throughout Japan, in places like Kyushu and Osaka and so on and she did many consultations over the year.

Thanks to this, she was able to see the results and benefits of Feng Shui. One person threw away about 80% of the stuff in their house and they had many changes in their life occur very quickly and they experienced big changes in their good fortune.

Her client realized deeply the connection between the stuff they have in their house and their emotions. They realized that these things affect each other on a level that they didn't know about before. They were able to look at what they have and decide what they really want, and what they don't. They were able to decide if the things they had were aligned with what they wanted in their life and if it didn't then they found a way to get rid of that thing.

One client threw away about 80% of the things they owned! Another client threw away clothes and furniture and replaced some of these with new items that better fitted their lives.

What happened in their lives after they did this? Here are just a few of the things they noticed:
One client received a big project that he had never expected to receive.
One client became friends with a celebrity. She felt this kind of person was above her status level, but after making changes she was able to meet and become friends with such a person.
One client began a love relationship with a rich man who even has his own private jet!
This is just a few of the amazing results.

The Feng Shui consultant was so amazed by the things that happened in her clients' lives. She said that she recommended the clients throw away a lot of things, but she personally couldn't throw away as much of her belongings. She was so impressed by the changes in her clients' lives that she too wanted to throw away more. She realized that throwing out things was so important and always asking yourself, "do I want this item in my life?" or "is this item aligned with what I want in my life?"

Throwing away 80% of the things you own is almost like major surgery on your house! It is almost like a death and rebirth situation.

I still have my own problem. I have a lot of things in my house, I have many clothes I don't wear anymore and I have a lot of books, too, many of which are complete sets of series, but I will never read these again.

I wrote about throwing away 80% of your things, but this doesn't mean that you have to throw away everything, or make a lot of garbage. We are not focused on throwing away everything. If we focus on throwing away things, then we will end up believing that empty white space is the best sort of space to invite good fortune. This is not the point.

Throwing away things is the result - the most important thing is to look once more at what we have, and decide what of those things do I like? What things make me feel happy and comfortable? What things do I want to use my time and energy on in my life?

The key is rethink the focus of our life. This is a chance to think about our life's focus, and how the things we already have help or hinder us achieve this focus. This process is the work we must do to attract new energy. The process is what is important for changing our lives.

When we leave our house, there is a lot of information coming at us, through our eyes and ears and we cannot control this information. And unfortunately this information does affect us. Especially in downtown Tokyo, or other big cities, you are surrounding by noisy sounds and sights.

Fortunately we can select what we want to have in our houses. We can decide what do we want to buy? What do we want to select? What do we not want to choose? A gift we received from somebody, or something we have used since we were a child... do we want to continue using that thing or keeping it in our life? We can make this decision.

When I visit people's houses, I often find people keep things that they don't really like or need, just because they feel guilty for throwing it away because it was a gift, or it would be a waste to throw it away. Most of us have spent money and bought a lot of cheap things; cheap furniture, cheap things from the 100 yen store, or cheap plastic umbrellas and so on. We need to get rid of these cheap things and fill our lives and houses with more quality items.

In fact, at the moment, I am training to become a Feng Shui consultant, and I have been to some houses to do my training. I advised some people to throw away the box that they keep their slippers in in the entrance.

These people told me that they don't have guests come to their house. Maybe once or twice a year people visit, however, they have 4 to 5 pairs of slippers in their slipper box in the entrance hall. They don't use them! They think "someone might come" so they prepare the slippers, but they are wasting space in their narrow and small entrance area, for something that they don't need.

Also, I went to one lady's house and she had a spare futon stored in her closet that she used only once or twice a year when guests stayed with her. She lives in a very small apartment and the futon takes up such a lot of cupboard space and is a waste of space really.

In fact, several years ago, I decided not to have a futon for guests. I moved into a very small apartment with a very small closet. When I threw out the guest futon, I felt a clear feeling of "this is my space, for my life". And when a friend came to my town to visit, I decided to reserve a hotel room for them, or if they didn't mind, they could stay at my house in a sleeping bag.

Of course, that meant I was spending money on their hotel room cost, but that is a better use of my resources than keeping a spare futon in my cupboard space for the other 364 days when it wouldn't get used. We need to be more ruthless! Once you stop wanting other people to think you are a good person (because, for example, you have a spare futon ready for them to stay at any time) your life will become easier.

When I tidy up my house I try to remember that everything has information. And I imagine what kind of information it is and what kind of energy that thing has. And then I decide whether I want to keep it or throw it away. Even if it is inside a cupboard or drawer and you can't see it, these things have information for us too. And we need to tidy up the things in our drawers, too.

And I found that when I tidy up my house I downsize as much as possible and this has not caused me any problems at all. This means that we already have enough. And it means that we will use the things we have much more carefully and possibly buy less in the future, too.

A few days ago I attended the Tony Robbins workshop in Japan. In the workshop they had lots of booths and they were giving away many things to the attendees for free. Some booths were giving away CDs and books for free. There were long lines of people queuing to get these free gifts. However, I and a feng shui friend I went there with didn't line up to get anything, because we didn't want those things even if they were free.

What percent of the things you own are really necessary for your life? If you decided to decrease what you own by 80% what would you keep as the remaining 20%?

If I promised that your life would improve greatly if you decreased your belongings by 80% would you take action to do this?

Holidays or changes in the season are a good time to tidy up our houses, let's do this!

Ps. This is not only things - we need to say goodbye to relationships in our lives that we no longer need, too. If we create time and space in our lives then new experiences and relationships will come our way.

Chipenketsu !

Last weekend Temple Beautiful held a workshop run by Mr. Ryusei Saegusa who is an Aikido master and teacher, and he is also an alternative health chiropractor incorporating spiritual practices into his work (Noguchi Seitai).

At the workshop, we learned about the meridian points of the “Chipenketsu” and this is the 54th meridian point for the bladder. He said this meridian point is very important for controlling the muscle of our buttocks. Of course we usually use this muscle, but we do it unconsciously. But it is very important that we can actually control these muscles consciously, both the left and the right muscles separately.

If we train these muscles, which are connected to the sacrum muscles, then our body alignment and posture improves because the deeper muscles in the buttocks become stronger and are much more able to support our pelvis. Our body moves into the right position, with our chest upward facing the world.


And thanks to this, our body becomes like an antenna naturally. This means we can notice danger naturally, or we can find good smells easily and so on. In other words, we are able to attract good things to us much more easily. If we learn to consciously control the muscle around the “Chipenketsu” point our lives will begin to change.

Mr. Ryusei said we that we are like weak dog, one with its tail between its legs. However if this dog returns its tail to the natural place, they can get their confidence back. He said that recently in Japan, that many people are living like this dog, with their tail between their legs. We need to return to our natural strong posture and regain our confidence. And in order to do this, we need a strong sacrum to support us.

The good news is that because the sacrum is supported by muscles, we can train them.

If you are a woman, you can do this easily by tightening the inside of the vagina, and it is easy to feel the “Chipenketsu” and strengthen these muscles. Similarly for a man, you can feel the “Chipenketsu” on the inside of the anus, so by training these muscles we can strengthen the sacrum.

This is a short movie of one participant. I hope you can see that she is moving her left and right buttock muscles independently.

Pyramid of Japan

Last weekend I visited Hiroshima for three days.

I went there in order to climb some ancient ruins. One is north of Hiroshima, and some people call it the "pyramid of Japan" and it really does look like a pyramid! It is believed that more than 20,000 years ago that ancient people held rituals at the top of this mountain. There are big huge rocks arranged there on the top of this mountains. It's very interesting.



On the second day I visited some other very ancient ruins(Nouga-Kogen). Some spiritual psychics have said that this was the main place to communicate with the universe and world long, long ago. The huge rocks there are thought to be a kind of antenna for communicating. The rock formations are similar to what you can find around the world, at Stonehenge for example.





Then on Saturday I visited Miyajima. This has become a very famous place recently, since it was give World Heritage status. I saw a lot of foreigners there, too. Miyajima island is a very spiritual place, and on the mountain we can find many stacks of rocks again.

What was interesting for me, was that the place I visited on the second day was directly north of Miyajima. In other words, these ancient ruins and Miyajima are exactly north/south of each other. Also, some psychics have said that Miyajima and the ruins I visited on the second day resonate with each other. Other psychics have said that long, long ago aliens from outer space visited this place. And although we haven't found it, even now, these alien beings have a UFO base on the mountain.



One more thing that was interesting was on the last day when I was driving back to Hiroshima from Miyajima, I saw a big UFO around the location of the ruins I visited on the second day. It was so huge, I actually thought it was a replica of a UFO or something at first. But one of my friends saw the same thing from Miyajima, so maybe it really was a UFO.


I think that long ago, people on earth were able to communicate with other beings throughout the universe, using these kind of stone formations. I think it was a very easy thing for them to do. But modern man has forgotten how to do this, we have forgotten that we have the ability to communicate with the universe. Long ago, we were primitive people, but we have evolved into modern man, but I don't believe this - I think that even 10 to 20,000 years ago we had an amazing civilization, but for some reason this disappeared, and because of this, we started to evolve again. This is kind of like a hobby for me, to look for and find proof of the great civilization that we once had long ago.

What are your thoughts on this topic?
