Q: I have a question for you, MARTH. I came to think the biggest problem in this world is a separation while I was listening to you. Would you please talk further details?

MARTH:
You are right. However, the more serious problem than that of a separation is everything in this world is connected as one… You may be surprised to hear that, but it is the truth…

If this world is connected as one, we cannot judge something that seems other, even if it is evil… To judge someone evil, to judge something bad, in fact, everyone judges something in various ways… We are fighting with something within ourselves…

You may be judging various kind of things such as sufferings and pains in your childhood, or your enemy, rival and so on… Or someone who never loves you… someone who treats you harshly… you are judging somebody or something within you, and you may think you are just… Criminals also judge others because of the childhood pains… If there are truly bad people, and if such an simple idea to catch them as my father did at the Tokyo District Public Prosecutor’s Office in Ministry of Justice is enough, our state power could manage them somehow. However, it is very difficult as we are connected as one…

That is because everything is connected as one, and everything is us. And when we judge someone, whom we believe other, with justice, we may end up in getting a feedback from it. And it doesn’t matter whether the one who judges is a great judge or not.

Therefore, what is truly troublesome is that the people such as Nobunaga, Attila the Great and Genghis Khan, who may have destroyed others because of justice, because of love, had to destroy themselves… because they harmed others who are connected as one with them. I wonder if it is most troublesome.

Many people believe and say, “It is O. K. to destroy them as they are to blame. It is O. K. to diminish them, attack them and kill them. “or “I am a justice. I am right. They are not worth living.”

I used to be a trainer of a self-help seminar in my youth and watched hundreds of thousands of people return to their original self… No doubt the true nature of human beings is love… I’m quite sure about it. It is not a question whether human nature is fundamentally good or bad. I really had witnessed the scientific facts. There were no people whose true nature was not love. Perhaps animals, trees, flowers and everything are part of love, and they are made of love… Human beings are naturally the same, too.

And what closes and covers the true nature of the suffering people is their conflicts and pains in childhood… If they consider they are right from such a point of view, they will end up destroying themselves who look others as the other is the self in the world of oneness.

Therefore, this is incredibly troublesome. Justice doesn’t always function in this world. Each one of us has difference kind of justice. What we think justice varies according to our home environments, our point of views and standpoints. We need to have truly deep and neutral awareness to recognize true justice. We honestly need to return to love. Only the people who regain their true self can find out what is considered to be really bad. Otherwise, they will do nothing but reactions. Most of us continue fighting with people who look others, whom we believed as evil according to our reaction and repellence in our childhood. At that time, however, we will destroy ourselves… When we harm the people who look others, we will get a godly punishment. We call it “bachi” in Japan...

It seems some leaders think that humans are not necessary for nature and animals and they should be diminished. However, if we destroy humans, who are connected as one, the ones who destroy their fellow humans will be in trouble… They will lose true wealth, true prosperity, true joy and happiness…

What I want to convey you most is that people are the beautiful embodiment of love, something magnificent, beautiful and loving. I saw people return to their original self of love for many years as a trainer of a self-help seminar in my youth. I saw millions of people had love in their original nature. the person himself may not know it. I want to convey it because it is true, although the person himself may not know it. And love fills our true being so much it will never allow us to stray from it…

I heard a leader of some big country talking on the internet the other day. “To be wealthy is convenient and good in various points. Before talking of having money or being wealthy, however, a man’s happiness cannot be measured if there is no peace and no love within a family.” I agree with him completely.

Our true nature is oneness, and everyone has his true nature of love. When we live with it, whether we have money or not, whether we have status, fame or not, doesn’t matter. We will be happy in spite of their presence or absence… Human happiness lies in regaining the quality of oneness in this sense. However, the quality of oneness may cause a great problem. The ideas that we will destroy the evil, we will beat the people who seem others, may spoil ourselves.

Therefore, if we want to live in the world of love, of oneness, which is our true self, we need to stop judging anything resulting from separations and conflicts… It is wrong to say, “They are bad. It is O. K. to cheat them, rob them and take them. “ This is what will spoil you. You will be damaged… You will get a godly punishment. You will get what we call “bachi” in Japan then. Who will give it to you? Is it God? No, it is your true self… your love of the higher dimension… It is called “Higher Self” in New Age term. It is also called non-self, Atman. Atman is the whole existence. It has a quite different point of view from that of our ego system. Therefore, we human beings suffer…

You may wish to live your life with peace, happiness and love… and you may think, “So, I will destroy my enemy, the evil. I will destroy people who I consider evil for me. “ However, it doesn’t work. Our planet earth has become the one of pains as many people who destroy each other live there… It is a problem of our strong belief that it is O. K. to destroy people who seem others, O. K. to tell a lie as they are bad, O. K. to cheat them and attack them. However, your universe doesn’t accept it. Atman, which is nothing but divine, and your true self have only a value of oneness. You should live like fish that can only live in the ocean. You should live like animals that can only live on land. You will spoil yourself if you ignore and oppose your true self of love and divinity.

Some people of religion try to destroy other religion as they think the other religion is wrong. I’m not saying the other religious people are not wrong. If you destroy them, even if they are wrong, you will get a divine punishment, who are the one who considers yourself as just. And, naturally, these other people will spoil them if they destroy, cheat and attack people. Therefore, we need to master the value of love of oneness. I don’t mean to tell you that you should be a good person.

I mean, that is to protect our love, the true love, which is our true quality and connected as one, and divine. I’m talking about protecting our divinity. It is never good for you to think of destroying others for that purpose. Both of the people, who say “I will destroy them because they are bad.” and who try to control them will surely suffer and destroy themselves… It’s not only that. We will live in a stressful and painful world even though we are not destroyed yet. We will have to live with much violence, annoyed by yakuza or mafia and threatening each other.

You may be killed. You may be threatened. You may have to live in such a bad environment. You may think of committing suicide or falling into various other troubles. I don’t want you to live as such. As far as our true quality is love, we need to realize that we should live with love, with our true self. Everybody’s goal in life is to find the true self. Fish needs to realize the water. You need to awaken to the quality of your true home and live in it. Then, you will be living in the true prosperity and true success… Everyone living on this planet has the same goal. That is to return to Atman, return to love, to eternity and live in it… then, such a life will make you happy and do you good…

If you think of destroying others and destroy them, you will spoil yourself, however right or just you are…  In other words, as soon as you lose the ideas of destroying others, you will live in a peaceful world… It is a world of love… It may be the true Sennen Okoku (the millennium). It is a world where the people have profound consciousness and never think of invading the homeland of others to destroy them… I feel to educate people so that they know the true self, and there will be no people who judge and take for the cause of love, will realize the true peace, and is love…

Therefore, the problem is not only a separation, as you mentioned, but also that our universe, our divinity will suffer and feel painful when we believe in a sense of separation as we are, in reality, connected as one, and we feel like blaming or destroying ourselves. This is also a problem.

Unless this world is connected as one, unless people have beautiful quality, they will feel all right however hard they fight. There may be no one who kills himself if so. I think there will be no one who warn us about our wars and conflicts unless our true self is love and connected as one…  We will warn us when we do something that doesn’t fit our true quality, and we will destroy ourselves.

Moses said, “Never cheat nor attack others who are connected as one with us.” He told us not to do it… Only the part about oneness and love may have been missing… In a sense, the world of oneness is harsh. In such world, a sense of separation from other is fatal. And you will suffer only because of it… I wonder if this prevents us from straying from the world of love…

It doesn’t matter whether you are rich or poor, whether you have a status, fame or not. What is more important than that is to live without conflicts, fights and separation within the world of oneness, and to treasure your true self of oneness. Otherwise, everybody will suffer. Life itself will lose joy, bliss and love.

So many people have never met their true quality of love. Our planet earth is filled with the people who have lost bliss and joy to live with the true self in the world of love… In other words, this is a world of what we call “bachi” in Japan… That’s reason why we suffer.

We can live with beautiful experiences. Humanity will be able to live an incredibly wonderful life, filled with love, beyond death… We will be able to live a life filled with joy and happiness… That is when we are free from a sense of separation and loved by the true self, the self of the higher dimension. When we are separated, our true self will send us a message. There is neither love nor joy within our hearts then…

All of us have to give up a value of separation if we have learned it from our parents. It is O. K. to succeed something wonderful coming from love that your parents told you. However, you will see that you should not succeed a value of separation such as conflicts, sufferings, hates. That’s because it doesn’t fit your beautiful true self, which the whole universe has… You may not live a happy life because of it… If you fight with strong fellows, with someone great, with the wealthy people, never to lose according to your childhood decision caused by a sense of separation and conflicts, you will suffer and fall into something evil.

I’m not telling you to be a good person.  Your true self tells you to truly realize it and lead a good life. It is a message from the universe, from Atman and from your true self that you should live a wonderful life, a life filled with love, a happy life and attract everything wonderful.

And I have told you everyone, all the beings are connected as one, love, and divine in its nature… Therefore, even if they make such excuses as they will not lose their light, nor love as they don’t destroy others themselves, it will not work that way… It is natural that the people who have such values will lose happiness first of all, they will live the most painful life and suffer most… They will psychologically live in the hell even though they are physically wealthy.

The reason for this is that their true nature is God and love however strongly they deny it. They may call themselves a devil… In reality, however, their true quality is love. Therefore, they will give themselves a punishment. They will judge them. Unless they are God or love, they will not do something like judging themselves… God does not judge them, but their higher self is the whole universe. Their higher self is Atman… That is, they will never forgive them who have become separate and ugly. They will try to regain the original self…

I want you to live shining brightly with your true quality, not against it. Then, you will find a life itself will be wonderful, and your family, ancestors, descendents and everyone will be happy. You will be truly wealthy. And it may be good that you become a king at that time… Even if you are not a king but a general citizen, you will be happy…

I want you to be happy. I want you to live happily so that you will neither cheat others, nor fight with them, nor judge them, nor control them, therefore, nor judge yourself, nor give you a punishment, without any conflicts, without any separation, in this world of love in its original nature. I want you to be happy with all my heart…

We have been familiar with the word, “karma” since the ancient times. That means ideas or notions. To have an idea of oneness will be wonderful and loving. However, I could not say having an idea of separation is good… That is because it comes from our fear. If we can convey the ideas of oneness to our children, the family will flourish very much, become very happy and  spiritually rich forever and lead a life of love…

On the other hand, however, if we convey ideas of separation, conflicts, fights and so on to our children, they are likely to spoil themselves because of such sense of separation, pains, sufferings, conflicts and fights which are out of tune with their true quality…

The word, karma is not a New Age term. It is nothing but an idea. Therefore, it is incredibly wonderful to have values and ideas of oneness, instead of the ideas coming from separation..

MARTH

I think two things are important for humanity to realize an eternal life beyond death…
First of all, it is able when science proves this world is not a reality. It is when it is not this world, but unknown and mystical world, immeasurable and is a dream like an illusion…

Secondly, it is when we realize that everything is connected as one, the ego is an illusion, “the self (the ego)” is nothing but a notion or a thought… Then, we will find there is no self who dies from the beginning…

MARTH

Q: Let me ask you a question, MARTH.
I read what you said in various media… What I’m always concerned is the self-boosting you often talk about. I seems to me even the people in the spiritual world, healing and religious world always aim for the self boost and are eager to win in a sense… I don’t feel they are trustworthy somehow. What do you think of it?

MARTH:
As you say, there is neither superior nor inferior, neither right nor left among human beings and in the whole universe. It is always true that everyone is a child of God, a child of the whole universe, a child of Love, a manifestation of Love and a part of the existence… That is the truth of all the beings. It is as certain as fish swims in the ocean and animals live on land… That is our true essence. Animals will be drowned if they live in the ocean… Fish will be dry if they live on land… Everything will be spoiled if we do something out of tune with our true quality.

If we feel like winning over others, who are in reality one with us, excelling them, improving us, and rejecting to be made fool of, we will be dried up like fish on land… I am deeply concerned about it. I have tried to raise a question whether all the human beings have become such… They are originally loving and beautiful beings. Therefore, they should not be the fish on land. They cannot live in the ocean if they are beautiful and great animals… I’d like to tell you we will be able to realize true success and prosperity when we live with love and sense of oneness as it is such in the story of Hanasaka-jiisan

You don’t have to aim to be the chosen one or the people of God, try to get such titles at all. Everyone is the children of the whole universe, and, in a sense, every insect, every bird, every flower, every tree, the earth and every elementary particle are a manifestation of love… There is nothing that is not part of God in this world… Nobody is not. Everything is it, and something magnificent, eternally unknowable…

As you say, we should never try to make the ego win, which is only partial and illusory, if you wish to step into the world of New Age, Religion and the spiritual. You should never go there with an approach of self-boost such as you try to be a leader by excelling others, to become somebody, to be great and to win, as if fish lived on land.

You should stop the self-boost, which comes from a dream of the ego, if you ever step into the spiritual world. You should never try to be something superior or great. When you give it up completely and become hollow, your true essence, your innate quality, love comes up. Then, you will find yourself truly fulfil your potential as a part, truly able to win a magnificent victory, truly win, live, flourish together, and receive everlasting true success there… That is truly a new future for humanity…

Q: What was your intension for choosing the songs in minor key, naming the coming album as “Minor Line – The Road to the East”?

MARTH:
This world is filled with sadness, sufferings, pains… Within the corrupted world, in the societies of separation and such culture, we humanity has thoroughly harmed each other… I picked up several rare minor-key songs among MARTH catalog to express such pains and tried to put my soul into them…

Now is the time to overcome our sadness with a sense of oneness… I cannot but feel all the people of the world are trying to stand up on their own, to start all over again, in the corrupted soceity and in the corrupted world, to create a world of the original loving nature… I just wanted to express such power…

Q: I watched the movie of your performance on the stage. I am little disappointed. I couldn’t hear you very well. When will your company release the DVD and other commercial products?

MARTH:
I apologize. It will take about three months for the production. However, my staffs filmed the movies by iPhone and posted in on YouTube immediately. You will see numbers of cameras set up on the stage and many engineers working hard. The engineers and many other people who are not shown on the movie worked together as one for this project…

In spite of nationality, cultural and language differences, it was made possible by their cooperation.
And most of the staffs are of foreign nationality. Cameramen, sound engineers, lighting crew were all foreigners. Only several Japanese were there. This is a proof to show it is possible to create something of unity and integration by cooperating with each other in spite of the differences of cultures and so on.

And it takes quite a while until the visual and audio data are polished to become final products. I wish all the wishes of the people involved in this project such as the camera crew, the sound engineers, the ligting crew, the members of the choir and the orchestra, will be reflected on them. Please look forward to the magnificent final products to convey everyone’s thoughts for this project…

Q: Let me ask you a question, MARTH. I felt you were humming some Spanish or Latin words on the stage. What made you sing like that during the middle and ending part of the songs?

MARTH:
Yes, that’s true. The introductory part, middle and the ending part of my songs are very long. Most of them are written by myself… They are not short as those of conventional Japanese pops. And I have been humming or singing a song without lyrics such as la la la for a long time.

It is an improvised performance. However, it is not Latin origin. It may express Old Judea in a sense… What I mean by the old Judea is that true El Shalom exsited in Asir, now recognized as a part of Saudi Arabia. After Isaiah left there, the city was moved to Israel. To begin with, the people of the old Judea are from the middle east. And talking about Spain and Italy, that you mentioned now, are a mixture of two cultures; Isram of the middle east and Christianity. Just like the Alhambra is built in the Isramic style… Its atmosphere and the sound of the introductory and intermediate part of my current music which I created may express the thoughts of the old Jewish. That is, in a sense, expresses “sadness”. It is the pains and sadness of humanity who is not able to live with love forever.

However, the truth of the world is never sadness. It is a place of eternity where everything is connected as one, and enternally beautiful and unknown… And where are the actual and pure-blooded old Jewish who have deep love in the world? I cannot but feel many of them are located in Japan, which has been hidden for many years. They have been protected because it is a separate island.

And I think all they need to do is nothing but to feel, live and convey that everything is connected as one forever. Everything is allowed to be different and is beautiful for this reason, therefore they need to convey love and the true self and each of them to take a different part, if there is any kind of mission for them. I also feel they need to convey everyone is connected, therefore they never harm others even though hurt by others, as they are the children of love, of God as everyone is as such, and it is a mission of the ancient people. I experimented this project as such trial… It may not have been successful, but we tried to put such spirit in it…

Q: Let me ask you a question, MARTH. I watched your live event on YouTube. It was such an amazing and great live performance. I look forward to the CD and DVD as you told us it takes three months for us to buy them. By the way, what made you hold such event, MARTH?

MARTH:
It seems that the people get hurt, laughed at, spoken ill of, made fool of, or lied by social media these days. I hear many stories that children kill themselves…

I used to be a vice president of Apple Japan. Steve Jobs and many other people have developed the IT industry. I feel the world is changing now and has become beautiful thanks to IT technology. On the contrary, however, so many children are lied or harmed on the internet, too…

I had been exposed to various false slanderous words. However, I have lived my life with love, only wishing for happiness of the people who hurt me, laughed at me, spoke ill of me, lied to me, without harming them. It is not because I am a good person but I just hated to lose my love…

I just didn’t want my love and my true self be hurt. In other words, it is possible for you never to harm your love, real self and the feeling of oneness with God by yourself… I stood on this stage with such single hope that I want to tell the children they don’t have to kill themselves even they are hurt by others.
I wished to show myself singing along with the orchestra at a world-renowned concert hall, even though I am laughed at, sponken ill of… And being not very good songs sung by not very good artist, I wanted to show and prove myself able to perform like this and tell them how happy I am to live within love. Moreover, I wanted to show adults it is possible to live without relating themselves to the unfortunately corrupted society, without adapting themselves to it, without pandering to it, as I have been living as such… I’m still trying to tell them you are allowed to live free…

MARTH

Q: I will ask you a question, MARTH.
How are the corrupted societies and civilization born?

 

MARTH:
First of all, that is when we forget we are part of the one being, part of God and part of Atman… when we forget our true nature is love, that means, humanity has become the ego. The separation called the ego is a state of forgetting our true quality that is connected as one and separate from it. That means we are psychologically away from our home, which is our true quality. I think it is the reason why humanity has been suffering…

There are the people who maintain the sense of oneness with Atman, and with Love and God. On the other hand, some people never believe it. However, when we have become the ego, we will be attacked by the true self; the whole universe. It is frightening. Our divinity, strength of our true self and its beauty has great forces which we cannot take lightly. I cannot but say our true self, which we can call love, the sense of oneness, a child of Atman or of God), attack us in full force, so that we, who are not awake, can realize it… So honest is a man, who is the whole universe.

Therefore, we can imagine the kings of the world, who are said to have succeeded, had to fail and could not live long enough… In spite of the ego’s expectations, our pains and problems arise when the ego, which is an illusion caused by a sense of separation, tries to win, excel, improve and become somebody, as such acts don’t fit our true nature…

I think we will fall into suffering as long as we stay as the ego… It is only because such a way of living is different from one’s true nature. And he may believe it is caused by some other person… If I am asked what is important for humanity to realize a new civilization, I say we need to end the ego first. I think we need to realize who we really are and what we are for that… And the answer is certain; our true quality is part of the existence, part of something unknown and mystical, whether we call it God, the heaven, love or whatever. And we need to understand we are connected as one with the wholeness…

We receive messages when we stray from there, for us to realize what is wrong… Because of that, we may feel like being punished, painful or suffer… And some of us may get into a harsh environment. I think we will see the potential of a new civilization when humanity can truly learn it since childhood.

That is a sign when the ego, our value of separation has begun to end. Then, we will get hold of true peace, wealth, love, brightness and true success… And it can last very long as it fits love, that is our true quality… It will be passed on to the children’s children, and to those children. Humanity will realize a truly beautiful civilization and a wonderful world where we can win together, love each other, support each other and play each different part…

Q: I felt vastness, grandeur and sadness to see your stage. I wonder what made me feel so.

MARTH:
There is nothing more beautiful than sadness. This world is corrupted, filled with sadness and pains because of our control and subordination system.
And this can be felt only by the people who have the heart of oneness…

It is very important for us to feel sad when the world is corrupted because of separation. Just because we have love and a sense of oneness, we feel painful and sad for the people who don’t… In reality, this world is filled with love, connected as one and eternal… Moreover, it is, in reality, unknown and mystical… However, everyone suffers and loses true wealth and success, true brightness and love, and true prosperity if we are born into the societies or civilizations made of a value of seperation… Success and brightness in this world is nothing but ephemeral and vanishing.

And we will eventually punish ourselves and suffer for our own awareness… We will continue telling ourselves, “ Be aware! Awaken!”
Sadness is magfinicent. It tells you that not only this world but you are not functioning well, you are away from your original true self and need to return to your true home, your true self now, and you have become so egoistical that you are separate from your true nature, from your godly and beautiful true self… I cannot but feel such sadness is the most valuable treasure for the people whose true quality is love…

Q: Good day MARTH! What does the world need to do to live as one? Is there a peaceful way to be rid of old control structures such as government and religion? Love & Oneness Always!

MARTH: Thank you, John. He is a mindfulness mentor from Australia.
I think he asks whether we can live together with the people of the old control structures, peacefully with no trouble, with no conflicts, with no stress, whether we can create the beautiful future with them hand in hand. I think this is a question of profit and loss. I wonder if humanity has never known what is profitable. It is only that our ignorance of the nature of the universe made our ego system prevail. We have never known our true nature is so amazing that it can nurture us, protect us, and give us incredibly beautiful life and true success and prosperity…
Everyone is part of God. We are part of the whole universe, part of Atman. I think people will go for what is most profitable (beneficial might be a better word, but from the text below profit, in the sense of money, seems to be the intent) if they realize it… whether they are young, old, or slow to realize it or quick…

On the contrary, if profit and loss, or what is incredibly profitable even for the ego system is common, I feel all of us may head for it. Then, we will never know who is faster. Because the people who developed the old control structures seem to have the greatest desire to gain profit, if I may say it directly.
When the ego wants to gain profit, however, we need to realize that boosting the ego is disadvantageous. Once the people from the old structures know it, they may be the quickest to start for it… All the people who have become wealthy temporarily are highly interested in it.

They seem to have developed incredible abilities to gain profit for their ego system and to outdo others. However, they will inevitably fall… They may feel something is not going well or something may be wrong when they are alone. They will do it all the same. That is because they strongly believe it is as they have lived it in the ego system, in the system made of separation. Once they start to realize the truth it will damage them and destroy them tremendously; if they know what makes them truly wealthy and splendid, and what makes them develop the power of the whole universe, their step may be faster… I feel it is crucial…

Our world will definitely be beautiful as the ancient people called it “Sennen Okoku (Kingdom of Millenium). I see a change is coming quickly. That may be what all of us feel now. I feel it is most important for us at this time of a change of direction…

Talking about profit and loss, what is most beneficial for the self and the ego system? What is it that never fails, and is sustainably wealthy and prosperous for us? What is something with which we can view everything and act from an essential standpoint of existence? What is something that is convincing enough for us to think it most crucial, most beneficial, neither failing nor destructive? And what is something that will promise us true success and sustainable prosperity for our families, for generations? To learn and convey all the beneficial points is important.

On the contrary, if we boost our ego system, try to win, attack, destroy others, become superior or inferior, everything will fail. We will be hindered, destroyed, and ruined because it is against our true quality. If everyone learns it, invasion of another’s homeland, or take, kill, fight, attack will be taboo. Because we will destroy ourselves if we do such things…

I think it will be a direct and truly powerful force when humanity learns it. This is my conclusion who has been involved in the spiritual world, in self-help trainings and works of the heart since my youth… I cannot but feel that it is the most natural way of transformation, or shift with a view of real profit and loss, and it may be the biggest way of transformation which releases most quickly while humanity believes in the ego system…
I deeply feel it would be incredibly powerful and significant if the children of the whole world can learn the true law of success, true law of prosperity, a release from serious damages and troubles and the system to enable them to avoid them…

I have received so many questions, but this is all for now.
Thank you very much.

 

All lives and things called elementary particles are divine and united with the existence when they are born to this beautiful and mystical world. I think its real quality is divine love of oneness. Therefore, the present world made of the egos and separations cause them great pains as it doesn’t fit their original qualities.

To be born into this world means to love the self who seems the other.
All the things in this world are a part of something beautiful that we call God or Creator and its child.
For this reason, it is very hard for us to live in the world of the small self and of separation.
Not to mention of fights, scrambles, cheating and killing each other, robberies, competitions, comparisons, all these things of separation don’t fit the true nature of the people who are connected as one. Their real nature of gentleness and love doesn’t fit it in the least.

I think such quality of oneness is a precious awareness shared in the holy book and the reason why people suffer in the world of oneness…
Therefore, we suffer from all the valued acts of separation such as winning, excelling, defeating, fighting, killing and deceiving each other. All of us may end up punishing ourselves by hurting, spoiling and torturing ourselves as we don’t fit our own true nature… That is the most important secret of the universal plan.

When we deeply realize it, we shall be able to overcome the separation, become tired of self-boost and self-improvement and naturally release all of them…
As a result we shall be able to feel calm, comfortable and relaxed, return to love and live in such loving place…
You will find true prosperity, sustainable happiness and peace, true success as a child of the whole universe there.
I cannot but feel such happiness is quite different from the one of the ego, which is a far greater joy beyond the ego.

From this point of view, MARTH sings, “Children of the whole universe, you don’t have to win. You don’t have to excel other people.
You are O.K. to come home to oneness.
You don’t have to harm others even though hurt. You neither have to become great nor to be superior”.
He continues to tell us everyone is a treasure of love of the whole universe and something divine…

MARTH

Q: Let me ask you about the lyrics of your music, MARTH. What do you mean when you say, “what you already have” in your music?
Is it something we had in childhood?

I think every life comes to this world as part of the whole universe, whether it is an animal, a flower or a tree. All lives come as a manifestation of Atman, of the whole universe, and as a child of God, or whatever you call it, within the world of unknown oneness.
When you are connected as one with the universe, you have such joy, bliss, and a sense of security because you are connected with everything. It is a life of no fight, no conflict, no mental conflict of separation. It is a world of no separation where we don’t have to blame others and fight with them.
I guess many people in childhood used to have such a pure heart and peaceful feeling that everything is one… MARTH expresses such feeling as “something you already have”.

Q: What is something we’ve been truly looking for?

As everything is connected as one, there is a sense of relief and joy, deep comfort, the heart of oneness. It is such comfort that there is no need for us to do some”hing that boosts the ego and makes the self superior at all. No need to excel and win over people who seem other. No need for us to fight or clash, which we learned here on the earth. No need for us to boast that we (as the ego) are amazing or great. It is an eternal comfort that we are part of the whole universe; accepting that we are connected as one, there is no need to fight at all. It is the true nature, the true essence of the whole universe, such quality of love and happiness. That is what “we have been truly looking for”.

Q: What is “the secret of the sky”?

“Sky” pronounced “Sora” in Japanese is also read and pronounced “Ku”, which is “emptiness, void”. Within the world of oneness where everything is unknown and mystical like a dream, there is the peace of the void. We lose it, however, within the ego world, while living in the societies of separation. Unfortunately, however, the world of disparity has prevailed on the earth because of our fear and suffering caused by a sense of separation. I mean to express by “the blue sky” or “the sky (sora, ku)” something that is not contaminated by such notions of separation. I think the joy of connecting with existence is beyond comparison. Then it is truly wonderful that we are connected as one, that we have no idea of separation, and that we have no negative thoughts.

You will be enclosed by something warm and happy when you neither fight nor blame others. You know that everything is one and you are part of it as well as everything is part of it. You will be able to understand that the people who continue fighting with you just don’t know the idea of oneness, however fiercely they fight or become brutal. The joy to be able to live protecting the goodness of the rules of oneness as part of the beautiful universe is beyond our ideas.

Q: Then, why do we get hurt as we grow older?

That is because we have currently such societies of the world where we believe in a value of separation. The ego world is the one where people believe in separation, that everything is not connected. It is natural that we believe in hostility, conflict, and fighting there. Therefore, our love and true essence within our original nature of oneness get hurt in our lives. We cannot feel that we are connected with everything. Our heart as a child of the whole universe is broken. Messages from the universe to awaken us – troubles and something like a punishment – continue coming to us. Such pains let us sense that something is wrong with us somehow and are the universe asking us to awaken . . . I think that all the rulers had to fail for this reason …

That we outdo people who seem other than ourselves in reality, rule them, become superior, or obey because of fear and listen to them because of fear of separation, all these are schemes of the ego. Such acts harm people. They destroy children of the universe whose nature is beautiful.

Q: What kind of lies make us lose our way?

What I mean is that we live in the societies of lies, which believe in something wrong, in the sense that we don’t think everything is a manifestation of the whole universe (God), and a manifestation of Creation. We never think that everything is connected as one within the world of unknown, mystical oneness.

Therefore, all the people, who are children of the whole universe, are searching. We have been searching for unity, true peace, true love and something truly connected as one all the time… We are always searching for them. In fact, we are fed up with the self. That is because it is not our innate quality. Maybe we will be searching for them even after we leave our bodies. Something that is connected as one… something united, something for which we can love people and forgive them, something with which we can feel everything is connected as one… As we are connected as one, we are searching for the heart that will never hurt people, never harm them even though we are hurt.

The true self is made of something that is connected as one, only we are not aware of it. We used to have one when we were babies… All of us have been looking for such an incredible feeling of security and love deep down. That may be a gift from the whole universe which only the people who have realized how silly it is to boost the ego receive …
We human beings, whose true quality is that of oneness, may not know yet that we can get true happiness only when we never boost the ego… I think that the most appropriate way of life for us is neither to win, nor improve, nor compete, but to realize there is true happiness when we feel for our friends who are connected with us as one… The ancient people of this country called it “wa – harmony”…

Q: I heard that you are from Japan, from Awajishima Island. Am I correct?

I don’t belong to anywhere. Never do I belong to anything in this world. I’m only part of the whole universe. However, this body as a human was born in Azabu, Tokyo. And my father’s father, my grandfather, comes from Awajishima Island, and my grandfatrher’s wife, that is, my grandmother, is from Jindai of Awajishima, too. So, my whole family have been living in Awajishima Island for generations. They seem to have been managing a temple and a shrine for a long time; that is, Jindaiji Temple, located in Jindai, which *Kūkai is said to have developed, and a shrine nearby. There is an incredibly old graveyard of my family there. Incredible amount of graves…
There is a shrine named Onokoro Shrine close to it.

According to the legend of that district, I heard that a leader named Isaiahnagit (translated as Emperor Isaiah in Japanese) came to Japan from the middle east with millions of people about two thousand six hundred years ago. They say he brought the leaders of twelve tribes and his disciple and prophet, Elijah, to Japan, too. He avoided conflicts and wars, persuaded everyone and headed for the peaceful land, the land of Jomon where there was no war. He said it was their homeland. And the king of the land called Jomon now accepted them willingly. He considered the people as siblings. I heard such a story.
And it is said that the leader named Isaiahnagit taught the people that one shall not harm others even though hurt by them. He said that one should not lose beauty as part of God and a child of God, otherwise, he shall hurt his own love, the essence, his soul. However hard a time one has to go through, however terrible the lies one has to hear, never harm anyone, however bad he is. This is what I heard about him. However, I didn’t hear that his disciples and the tribes accepted the teaching. It is only that this person named Isaiahnagit continued to convey it all the time. I heard that the first location where they lived in Japan was Jindai on Awajishima Island. It is the place my family comes from and my father always told me the story. My grandfather as well… They said Isaiahnagit from the middle east was filled with love…

My father worked for the Tokyo District Public Prosecutor’s Office of the Ministry of Justice. He always told me that I should neither harm others nor sue them. He told me never to boost the self, to become great and superior, never to seek after status or fame, in other words, never boost my ego nor be separate… He always scolded me and hit me hard, telling me to live small, feeling connected as one as a child of the universe. Otherwise, I shall lose my precious love and divinity. He never scolded me for any other reasons. This is how I was brought up in my childhood…

I deeply trust true justice presented in the teaching, because I feel what this person, Isaiahnagit, said is incredibly wonderful and true. I heard he came from somewhere around Arabia. The great tomb of Emperor Nintoku is in Nintoku-Tenno-ryo, where the descendents of Isaiahnagit live. They say glass vases from Persia are treasured there. I have little idea about Isaiahnagit, but I feel he must be a person of the beautiful heart, the one we should follow even now. My father was also a beautiful man of goodness and true justice. He was as strict as his father (my grandfather) was. I cannot but feel that the beauty of their hearts owes itself to the teaching of Isaiahnagit. I feel there must be people who have the same value in Jindai even now. If only there was something I could do . . . all I can do is convey only a small piece of the loving heart through my music…

(from Wikipedia)

The ancient people headed for the east with a wish not to harm others. The land of promise was the island in the Far East…

The time of new awareness is coming… within a turmoil of a big change. You may be fulfilling a dream which humanity has been wishing for the last two thousand years…

The lost ark of the ancient Judea has been much talked about and even depicted in Hollywood movies. The people all over the world have been enchanted by something mysterious in the ark for so long.
On the other hand, some people seem to say that there was not only “Ten Commandments” in it, but some other writings of ”Shikisokuzeku”; form is emptiness, a sense of reality is a false, it is not this world, we are eternally in the mystical, in the unknown.

They say what La Mu, the king of Mu Empire said was passed down to Sumerian civilization and Moses… And then, it was conveyed to Japan, which was considered to be the land of promise in the Far East, and then *Kukai endeavored to protect the law which was said to be powerful enough to transform the world…

As if supporting the sayings, it is said that numbers of ancient documents have been found in the world to write that there was no recognition of this world among the people more than ten thousand years ago, they felt like they had come to where and what was unknown and that they had no sense of a reality then… Is it real…?

MARTH declares that his recent book and music album are fictions. However, among his wide range of supporters are the people interested in metaphysics, they are new agers, historians of ancient civilizations, archeologists, researchers and scholars of various fields. Recently we even find some supporters who are willing to dig up an ark somewhere with a permission… Furthermore, it seems his family is related to a temple which Kukai founded on Awaji Island, Japan. Having said so, it may not be only myself who feels some kind of truth hidden in the essences of his music, poetry and essays…

*Kukai
Kūkai (空海), also known posthumously as Kōbō-Daishi (弘法大師 The Grand Master Who Propagated the Buddhist Teaching), 774–835,
was a Japanese Buddhist monk, civil servant, scholar, poet, and artist who founded the Shingon or “True Word” school of Buddhism.

MARTH also tells us about the ancient world.
“In the ancient times, when people felt that it is not this world as they understood this world is also that world, when all humanity had such kind of perception, substances shall transform itself. At a level of fundamental particles, everything is changing at this moment in time. Something that has been seen enhances itself and something that has been forgotten shall deteriorate…

It shall be a matter of course soon that it can happen at a level of atoms, of fundamental particles, or the levels which we humanity currently names so. In such a world there shall be no sense of “this world”. If it is so, “to be born” is fairly uncertain. And so is “dying”. When we die in that world, what does it mean? Do we die in the unknown, mystical and immeasurable place? What does it mean that substances shall be divided into fundamental particles, but remain as fundamental particles and electrons which I express in my poetry? The future science and humanity shall step into such a realm. I think we shall go forward such a direction within these ten years. And at that time, we shall know more clearly that the world is like a real movie. We shall come to discuss what dying in such a world and losing one’s body there are all about.”

Within the unknown and the mystical, how can we die? It is nothing but a change, like a traveler who makes a journey from the unknowable to the other unknowable and from the mystical world to the other one… Why can we not realize that we are not in this world…? I wonder if it will be a miracle for humanity when such awareness is a matter of course for us…
MARTH

MARTH always says to us, through his songs and poetry, “This is a magnificent world…It’s mystical, eternal, continuing to the end of the universe, just like in a dream, it is eternally extending. We give everything names in the world, by providing a name such as a reality or each different name, and also through our five senses, we recognize each thing as such. However, this world is still mystical, unknown, nor do we even know it is really this world…”
“We are, in reality, existing in such a space… No, never do we even know whether we live or not… When we suppose that we exist, we need to tell when, where and who we are. We have no idea when, where and who we are… Even if we name a place like New York or Paris, we will never know where we are forever… We may give a name to each place, but we never know where we are. It is beyond our mind. We can give a name to each person, but we never know who he is… Therefore, we never know whether we are alive or not.
Science-wise, at a level of fundamental particles, that of electrons, or we may not give such names, but of the unknowable and immeasurable level, everything is connected as one…”

 
MARTH entrusts his thoughts to his poetry…
And he says he always tries to be aware of a true reality saying “I am not… this is nowhere… only an unknown and mystical place…” even during his daily swimming. He also says he creates music from such space…

When we dig deeper into the healing music…
MARTH wrote a story about the ancient people who left their familiar homeland and headed for the land of promise in the Far East on the occasion of a release of “Because I Love You…Love Song for the World”. We think he may have recognized that the ancient individuals cherished the true reality which he often talks about more than anything… It is said that they committed themselves to the land of promise, to the great nature, to the whole universe and to something extraordinary. They were willing to travel tens of thousands of kilos to the east, deeply determined not to harm other people, nor plunder them. They say several hundreds of thousands of strong men kept on evacuating. When they finally succeeded in creating a new country and was attacked there again, they left there for the East as they never intended to harm others… Also, in the writings which their leader was said to have left, they never wanted to harm others, nor did they want to harm the nature, animals and everything… that may be because the ancient people knew that everything is connected as one in an unknown and immeasurable level and that there is no such world as this world…
