February 2019

Around this time of year, the festival of Setsubun in Japan is observed to welcome the season of Spring. The name means “seasonal division,” which also refers to the observance of Risshun.

Meishu-sama described the spiritual significance of Risshun on February 4th and Paradise on Earth Day on June 15th as two big turning points of the year, when the Light from the divine realm manifests its power in a significant manner. Risshun is a time for cleansing and laying the groundwork for new beginnings, as well as preparing to receive the full blessing of the increased Light - the spirit of fire - around Paradise on Earth Day. This recurring cycle accelerates purification, helping us to rid our bodies of impurities.
