New Philosophy of Life Written by Okada Jikan Mokichi, 1950 When looking at the present world thoroughly, everything has rapidly progressed. There seems to be no exception to this. Strange enough, however, we cannot see any progress in the religious field. This field is closely related to human beings but it remains unchanged or rather undergoes degeneration. It is shown by the fact that established religions always advocate their believers to go back to the right course; the founder’s starting point. It means that a person is put back to the original course when getting it off. Suppose they repeat it many times, they never progress. This contradicts cultural progress. […]
New Philosophy of Life Written by Okada Jikan Mokichi, 1950 I am resentful because our Johrei therapy is easily misunderstood by the world today. Let me explain this point in detail. Recently, the curative effect of Johrei is considerably being known. However, I hear that most people, especially specialists, still misunderstand Johrei very much. Here, I would like to educate them.
New Philosophy of Life Written by Okada Jikan Mokichi, 1950 Journalists assume as usual that all new religions are superstitious and evil. They act as if a fool always tries to show off the only thing they know. They just say it is disgraceful that evil religions full of superstition take advantage of the confusion after the end of the war and confuse people. However, they never mention why they appeared. They never consider its reason, either. They just regard all new religions as evil ones and judge them only with people’s gossip and their own decisions. I am just astonished at how simple they decide things. Therefore, we are […]

New Philosophy of Life Written by Okada Jikan Mokichi, 1950 When we thoroughly look at today’s society, bad people throw too much of their weight around. Therefore, good people are oppressed and suffering. Everyone knows these circumstances. Here let me explain why that happens.
New Philosophy of Life Written by Okada Jikan Mokichi, 1950 Just saying a religious belief, there are many types of them. I explain those as follows.
New Philosophy of Life Written by Okada Jikan Mokichi, 1950 It is inevitable that our religion is equally treated to other established ones. However, ours is incomparably different from others. Firstly, it includes other religions such as Shintoism, Buddhism, Christianity. It also covers philosophy, science and art. It, of course, covers isms such as the left and right wings, capitalism, socialism and communism. You would agree with the above description when reading the books, magazines and newspapers that we publish.
New Philosophy of Life Written by Okada Jikan Mokichi, 1950 It has been said since a long time ago that typhoons, heavy rains and floods are natural calamities that people cannot avoid. From our point of view, however, they are not natural but human-made disasters. Let me explain why we say so. Now, people in the scientific field are working hard to advance meteorology to reduce the damage from those calamities as much as possible. In Japan, the government, of course, invest a large amount of money in the facility for that purpose every year. I don’t know if it is getting any results. It seems that the original purpose […]
New Philosophy of Life Written by Okada Jikan Mokichi, 1950 Just saying wisdom, there is a various kind of wisdom. There are also shallow or profound ones. Let me explain them. ‘Shin-chi,’ ‘Zen-chi’ and ‘Ei-chi’ are the best wisdom. We should dedicate so much to religious faith to cultivate such wisdom. It is because they never spring up unless a person recognizes God and has a sincere heart. In this sense, they will never fail if they work hard based on Zen-chi. They can obtain true happiness. On the contrary, ‘Kan-chi,’ ‘Sai-chi’ and ‘Ja-chi’ are caused by evil. All criminals have such cunning wisdom. Especially, intellectual criminals such as a […]
