In this chapter, I will talk about "oneness of mind and body (shin-shin Toitsu in Japanese)".
Mind and body are different in nature. Mind and body are also originally one. Therefore, it is natural to use them together. It can be difficult to combine two things that are different in nature.
As I have described in former chapters, most of the people use their mind and body separately. Therefore, it is necessary to always practice using mind and body together. I want to discuss not about the training but about being one with the Universe. When we do something which does not follow Universal principles, we will expect trouble or disorder with our lives or our surroundings. Mind and body are one. Therefore, it is necessary to use them practicing Universal principles. Oneness of mind and body means to practice your state of mind according to the Universal principles and live with Universal principles.
I established "Four major principles to unify mind and body" as the way to practice oneness with mind and body for anyone.
The four major principles are a practical way to practice oneness with the Universe. Practicing the four major principles is not the purpose of our training but rather a way for all of us to practice oneness with the Universe.
These four major principles are likened to four different routes to climb to the top of the mountain. In the same way that we can climb to the top of the mountain from any of those four routes, by performing one of these four principles, anyone can experience oneness of mind and body. You do not have to do two or three at once, only one at a time. Let's me explain each principle.
