We need to raise the consciousness of our mind through gratitude and compassion. Unfortunately, in the present world, materialism prevails, and when Kokoro (mind) is absent, money is used as the center of one’s existence.
This materialistic form of existence not only results in ignoring universal principles based on truth, but also results in the instability of one’s heart. According to Master Kawakami, one’s humanity and truth is based from the heart, and neglecting this truth for materialistic obsession will result in a world headed for biological and ecological destruction.
Master Kawakami believes that compassion and gratitude are necessary for world peace; and with this belief as our corner stone we can all walk hand-in-hand.
