Mental Wave Motion of Peace

I have spoken about human thought and the power of words. This time I would like to share two happenings with you.

The other day, August 9, a Nagasaki prayer service was held at the Myohoji. Many officials attended the service. The day before the service someone made this remark to Marsha Joyner, one of the promoters, and the honorary president of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Coalition of Hawaii. “What if it rains on the day of the service?” Since the venue for prayer service was outdoors, it was natural to ask that. Ms. Joyner answered frankly, “It will not rain.” There was nothing to support her answer. She just answered that way. On the 9th, the day of the service, it was a cloudy morning and it rained from time to time. However, when the prayer service began, sunlight shined from between the clouds.

Several years ago, Sister Hideko Suzuki, who I highly regard, came to Hawaii to lecture. She held a two-day workshop at Turtle Bay. At the end of the first day, she said, “I’ll be taking a walk tomorrow morning.” At that moment a participant asked, “What are you going to do if it rains?” Sister Suzuki simply answered, “Tomorrow, it won’t rain.” The lecture for the day ended. And just as she had said the morning of the second day began with fine weather. Can you understand the meaning of this? Those, who know the truth, know it.

It is very important to make preparations as instructed by the news. Yet you should not be overly worried and concerned. The more you make the rains and typhoons a subject of conversation, and the more you worry about a typhoon, the rains and typhoons head strongly to you. “There is no effect.” “Things are okay.” We should plainly and positively think this way. We should envision fine weather and say, “It will be clear tomorrow.” By so doing the actual state of things will change.

The above-mentioned two people are working for society by expressing love. Heaven perfectly answers the thoughts of such people. They are traveling heaven’s path of altruism (benefitting others).
