Theory of Johrei

Healing Art for Tomorrow Part Ⅱ
Written by Mokichi Okada, 1943

Before explaining the theory of Johrei, let me tell you why I focused on such medical art. First of all, the question is how humans were created. Religionists say that God created them. From a scientific view, Darwin’s theory of evolution explains that amoeba became a lizard, a monitor and then an ape in order and finally became human beings. Aside from whether they are true or not, since they explain the events from the far distant past that we cannot see nor hear, it is impossible to believe them.

On the other hand, there is something that no one cannot deny. That is humans made themselves. In other words, parents make their children. Then they become parents and make their children. This is an absolute truth. Needless to say, they don’t do so consciously. Therefore, most people haven’t realised this fact yet. In this sense, there is no doubt that humans have the ability to make humans even if they do so unconsciously. This is, of course, the expression of the mysterious power that no one can explain. In this sense, I thought that humans should have the healing power for human diseases because they actually make themselves. If something is produced by a machine or substance, it should be repaired with them. In the same sense, I thought that human diseases should be cured by humans.

However, if we think that this theory is correct and humans have the ability to cure diseases, how do we exert and apply it? This is the last question to solve. Then I made a study based on this theory and discovered that humans can exert the healing power for diseases through my will, belief and skill. I also found through my experiments that it got a great result. This is the explanation of why I discovered Johrei and how I completed it. For that reason, it would be said that Johrei is a kind of healing art as never before.
