The courage to continue

Recently, I was involved in a minor unfortunate accident and asked the insurance company I had commissioned to deal with it, but they only responded according to their manuals and practices, which could have led to further bad luck.

I had a hunch that this was going to end up being totally unfair and unreasonable, so I started to take action to do whatever I could instead of leaving it to others, and fortunately, someone came forward to help me.

Thankfully, I was able to avoid being exposed to unreasonable situations, but it was an experience that made me think a lot about human behaviour.

Especially, I was reminded of the danger of acting at the will of others because of a lack of knowledge, and the reality of how many people are immersed in a world bound by convention.

I also witnessed the reality that many people in this world work with the very disappointing mindset - that the title of "expert in helping people in need" is just a name, that they don't want to do anything troublesome or loss-making, that they don't care about people's misfortune or bad luck, and that as long as they make money, they are good at what they do.

At the same time, it was also an opportunity to see how many people accept the situation of 'justice not being served' as the norm.

It was then that I came across a film that shone a ray of light on my sense of entrapment and gave me the courage to keep fighting without flinching from difficulties.

It is the 2017 war drama film 'Darkest Hour'.

In 1940, the western European countries were occupied one by one by Hitler's Nazi Germany and were on the verge of collapse.

Britain, along with France, had resisted German aggression, but after the German invasion of France, there were growing voices within the British Government that it could not compete with Germany, which was far superior in military power, and that it should turn to a policy of appeasement against Germany.

Appeasement is a policy of accepting the claims of the enemy to a certain extent and trying to work out a solution in favour of one's own country through discussion.

In reality, the aim was the defence of the British mainland, and the policy was a reluctant one, with the priority being that Britain would not be invaded and disintegrate if continental Europe was invaded and disintegrated, and in a sense had no choice but to do Germany's bidding.

Halifax and others, who were Churchill's political rivals, strongly urged Churchill to pursue a policy of appeasement with Germany.

However, Churchill, who had just become Prime Minister, strongly opposed the policy of appeasement.

His aim was not simply to successfully implement a policy of appeasement to protect his country's security, but to defeat the fundamental evil of 'Nazism' itself.

The following is part of Churchill's first speech to Parliament as Prime Minister, which conveys his passionate commitment.

"I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.

We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind.

We have before us many, many long months of struggle and of suffering.

You ask, what is our policy? I can say:

It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us, to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy.

You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word:

It is victory, victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory, there is no survival."

- Winston Churchill (in the film 'Darkest Hour')

To support France in its fight against Germany, Churchill speaks to the nation on the radio.

"Side by side, the British and French peoples have advanced to rescue not only Europe but mankind from the foulest and most soul-destroying tyranny which has ever darkened and stained the pages of history.


but now one bond unites us all — to wage war until victory is won, and never to surrender ourselves to servitude and shame, whatever the cost and the agony may be.


conquer we must, as conquer we shall."

- Winston Churchill (in the film 'Darkest Hour')

There are fictional scenes in the film that appear to have been inspired by true events, as well as scenes based on fact.

One of the most memorable scenes was when his wife, Clementine, gave words of encouragement to Churchill, who was completely demoralised after being pushed to the very edge of having to accept a policy of appeasement.

"You have the full weight of the world on your shoulders.

But these inner battles have actually trained you for this moment.

You are strong because you are imperfect.

You are wise because you have doubts. "

_ Clementine Churchill (in the film 'Darkest Hour')

Churchill is often seen as a great and respected figure, but in fact he was also 'just one ordinary human being' who lost his way many times and experienced many failures.

This statement carries weight because it comes from his own experience.

"Success is not final, failure is not fatal.

It is the courage to continue that counts."

_ Winston Churchill

Churchill's speech to Parliament, in which he spoke of his determination to fight the battle decisively, with the support of the King and his colleagues, is a highlight.

"Even though large tracts of Europe and many old and famous States have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Gestapo and all the odious apparatus of Nazi rule, we shall not flag or fail.

We shall go on to the end.

We shall fight in France.

We shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be.

We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills.

We shall never surrender.

And if, which I do not for a moment believe, this island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God's good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old!"

- Winston Churchill (in the film 'Darkest Hour')

One of the challenges faced by many people around the world is that they fall into the mindset of 'as long as it's good enough for me, others don't matter', and even if deep down they know what is just, they refuse to do what is unprecedented or take risks or make sacrifices, and as a result choose to behave in a passive and egoistic way.

Nevertheless, every person comes across situations in life where they cannot remain passive and egoistic.

In such situations, how would you feel if you were constantly being tested as to whether the action you chose was 'good' or 'evil'?

In metaphysics, which has existed throughout the long history of humanity and long before religions, philosophies and ideologies arose, good and evil are clearly defined as follows.

Definition of evil:

1. Harming others.

2. Depriving others of their freedom of choice.

Definition of good:

Making choices that are not evil.

However, if you are harmed, you must of course fight with all your might to defend yourself.

This is because it is an act of saying 'No' to evil.

If you do nothing and turn a blind eye to the evil that others are doing in front of you (harming others, taking away others' freedom of choice) because you "don't want to get involved", "don't want to take risks" or "only want what is good for you", isn't that an act of being part of evil, even indirectly?

Churchill's strong will and attitude of "fighting to the end without a flinch" against the diabolical tyranny of Nazi Germany, unparalleled in the history of human crime, embodied the very action “FORCE” of those who know "good" and "evil" as defined in metaphysics.

For your information, what metaphysics actually means cannot be found by searching the internet, nor is it taught in common schools.

This is because it is the knowledge that has been deliberately hidden for a long time in the history of humanity.

The most valuable knowledge for humanity has never been brought to the general public, but only to a small group of people belonging to the ruling class, such as royalty, the aristocracy and the clergy.

Metaphysics, as a secret knowledge that famous historical figures have mastered and Churchill would no doubt have learned, was finally made available to the public at the end of the 20th century as 'No More Secret' and has now spread to over 60 countries worldwide, including Japan, where the number of people wishing to learn it is increasing at a remarkable rate.

Even those who distance themselves from religions, ideologies or conventional spirituality may be thinking, for example.

"I want to know what science alone cannot explain!"

"I want to know the mysteries of how the left and right brain work!"

"I want to know why we are born, why we live and what happens to us when we die!"
