In the whole universe, everything must be in balance if it is to survive, if it is to prosper in the highest sense, in the highest level. So, in order to live our life in this world and understand Heaven at the same time, we should try to balance our life so that the spiritual part of our Self will be blossoming, and also the worldly part of us will be more developed.
Good afternoon. I am very happy to meet you today, the supposed-to-be one of the most intelligent races of people in Asia or in the world.
Is the translation OK? Yes. If the translation is OK, you’re supposed to smile, but I didn’t see anybody smile.
So long. You translate from English better or from Chinese? (Would it be easier in Chinese… She is asking the translator: Would it be better in English? Would it be better for you to translate from English to Japanese? Of course, English please.) Your English is better? (Yes.) OK, then it’s fine. (Thank You.)
Some people told me that they have a test the Japanese IQ is very high. Is that true? No? If what I speak today you understand immediately, then that means your IQ is very high, because what I speak is not concerning mundane business or economic affair or political business, but it's concerning the matter of the world beyond our intellect. If we want to be successful in this world, it doesn't matter in which aspect, we need IQ, and also, we need training, and also, we need ambition. Now, if we want to understand something about the world beyond this world, we need all these things plus something more. And that something more we already have within ourselves: that is our wisdom. If we do not try to remember our wisdom, try to develop it, try to recognize it, then our life is a little bit empty, feeling kind of not fulfilled, not completely balanced.
Is this so long? I spoke only three sentences. It looks like 30 sentences. I thought that Japanese people spoke very little. Because most of the time you work, you don’t have time to speak. So, let’s go back to our theme.
Now, if we look around in this world, we see everything is created in a kind of balanced manner. Therefore, there is day, and there is night; there are women, there are men, etc. Also, when we work very hard every day, we need, sometimes, to go out in the nature and relax and do something different than what we do every day.
I was making a joke. You’re not offended, huh? I was trying to bring some laughter into the Japanese audience, but I don’t think I succeeded. Do the Japanese people laugh a lot? Yeah, they do, huh? Yeah? They do? Because what I read in the newspaper is that you’re working, working, working and don’t do anything else. Is that true?
But I met some Japanese next to my house, where I live. They are very nice, and very, very happy, always smiling, so I don’t think this is very true. Maybe because that family, they’re balanced.
When we want to find happiness in our life, we should live a balanced life. Many of us live a life of too much materialism and we have forgotten the real spirit, the real Self, inside us. That's why we have tried very hard but our world has not been very progressive. Maybe we have progressed in some aspect and then we regressed in some aspect. That is because we have forgotten the more important part in our life: that is our spirit, our wisdom.
In the whole universe, everything must be in balance if it is to survive, if it is to prosper in the highest sense, in the highest level. In our world we are much more preoccupied with the material aspect. That's why we cannot understand Heaven. In Heaven, people are too much preoccupied with the spiritual aspect, therefore they cannot understand man. So, in order to live our life in this world and understand Heaven at the same time, we should try to balance our life so that the spiritual part of our Self will be blossoming, and also the worldly part of us will be more developed.
Therefore, while living in this world we still can understand and contact with Heaven, because in Heaven there are higher teachings for us that we can make use of in order to help mankind to develop in a more civilized manner, in all aspects. You see, our brain is just like a computer, a first class-computer, and according to what information we give to the brain, it will come out. So now, what we pick up in this world are not always the best information and not always the highest quality of information. Therefore we have to go to a higher dimension in order to pick up better information, better quality of information, to give it to our brain, and then in turn the brain will give it out to the society or to our daily life activity.
