“We all share the same vision and dream and that is ‘One Peaceful World’.” – Michio Kushi
Throughout human history, everyone, without exception and in their own way, be it through force, through the spread of ideas, through politics, religion, ethics, science, technology, economics, writing, art, music, by raising families or by living simply have shared the same vision and dream and that is to create one world of peace. Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan, the Romans, Napoleon, Hitler, Moses, Jesus, Mohammad, Buddha, the great philosophers, scientists, inventors, writers, artists, musicians, socialists, capitalists and so on have all done so in their own unique way and in their own sphere of influence. These are the words that my father taught me.
Furthermore, without exception, all have failed to realize this dream. Why? Michio and his teacher, George Ohsawa, believed that they failed because they forgot and ignored the fundamental importance of food. Food is our source and origin and without addressing the importance of our daily food and what we eat and how it creates and changes us, which is “macrobiotics”, then real peace could never be established.
In other words, the macrobiotic movement is the first movement of it’s kind to address food. It is the first biological revolution to establish one peaceful world. It is a peaceful movement without weapons and the use of force. It based on physical experience and biological change caused by changing what we eat everyday and not by imposing any ideas or concepts.
My father and George Ohsawa believed that by returning to a proper way of eating in harmony with natural order, in other words, a macrobiotic approach of living, then health, happiness and One Peaceful World would naturally and eventually follow. Without the peaceful natural biological revolution known as the macrobiotic movement then One Peaceful World could never be established.
