About the author

Masahisa Goi
Born in Tokyo, Japan on November 22, 1916, Masahisa Goi was a poet, philosopher, writer and singer. Though he aimed at a career in music, he found himself spontaneously drawn to the realms of philosophy and spiritual guidance. At the age of thirty he attained oneness with his divine Self. Before departing from this world in 1980, he named Mrs. Masami Saionji, his adopted daughter, as his successor and leader of the world peace prayer movement that he initiated.
More Information



from the Preface
In this book, I write about my own spiritual journey, just the way it unfolded. And in relating these events, I find that I naturally tend to write from the standpoint of one who cannot help but place greater emphasis on the spiritual than on the physical side of life. Indeed, it would not have been possible for me to live in any other way.
Through my own real experience, I became clearly aware that the physical body is one of the vessels of the spirit. I realized that a human being is essentially spirit, and acts via the physical body by means of thoughts and physical elements combined.

I would not encourage others to take the road that I have travelled, for each person has his or her own individual path in life. My wish is for each person to live with dignity in the way that suits them best, and to progress along their own path without losing their way, always praying to the inner divine self.

The title of this book, One Who Unites Heaven and Earth, came about through my spiritual experience of uniting my divine (heavenly) self with my physical (earthly) consciousness. It is my hope that, in reading this book, even a few more people may recognize that, by nature, all human beings are able to do the same.
