The New Diplomatic Strategies of Sir Winston Churchill:
A Spiritual Interview with the Former Prime Minister Regarding the Age of Perseverance

The tense situation continues in the Ukraine. In the Autonomous Republic of Crimea in southern Ukraine, a referendum for annexation by Russia was held, where 97% of the people supported the Russian annexation, and thus their Parliament declared valid the annexation by Russia. Russia acknowledged the result of the referendum and made a treaty recognizing the annexation.

Against this, Western heads of state and the media are calling the Russian invasion of Crimea Peninsula the start of a “new cold war era,” and are starting to call for stronger sanctions against Russia, such as “expelling Russia out of the G8,” and “freezing the assets of those associated with the Russian government.” U.S. President Obama also initiated sanctions, and asked other countries to follow his actions.

However, for Japan, in the last year alone Prime Minister Abe has met with President Putin five times, and Mr. Putin is scheduled to visit again this autumn. As Japan has advanced a friendly relationship with Russia, Japan is put in the difficult position of whether or not to follow the actions of the Western countries.
Is the Russian invasion of Crimea really an unwelcome “return to the cold war era”?

Master Ryuho Okawa of Happy Science Group called forth the spirit of the former Prime Minister of Britain, Winston Churchill, who led the fight in WWII, and was one of the persons who created the post-war reorganization. Master Okawa inquired on various political themes such as relations with China, and Churchill’s view on the Ukrainian situation.

※Master Ryuho Okawa of Happy Science’s video of “‘Strategic Diplomacy In the Era of Stamina’ — Churchill’s Spiritual Message” — will be available for viewing across the country and across the world at temples and branches of Happy Science. Also, the works, including this one, will be available in bookstores from early May.


What are spiritual messages?

“Spiritual messages” is a phenomenon wherein the words belonging to spirits from the spiritual realm are channeled down. The ability for this belongs to those with a high level of enlightenment, and it is different from “psychic phenomenon” (the phenomenon where one loses consciousness and enters a trance, and the spirit alone talks). Further, in cases of non-Japanese spirits, it is possible to send spiritual messages by selecting words out of the spiritual medium’s native language, and thus have them understood in Japanese.

What is a guardian spirit?

The human soul is, as a principle, composed of six entities, and one of these “soul siblings” in the spiritual realm works as the guardian spirit. That is, the guardian spirit is actually a part of one’s own soul. Therefore, the “spiritual message of the guardian spirit” comes through accessing a person’s subconscious, and its content can be thought of as that person’s true thoughts in the subconscious mind. →Read More


Churchill, the Hero against Hitler

The former Prime Minister of Britain, Winston Churchill, is most definitely a great hero of Britain. He may be compared to other heroes such as Admiral Nelson, who destroyed the combined fleets of France and Spain, or with Duke Wellington who defeated Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo.

Words like “twists and turns,” and “eventful” describe the life of the hero of Britain, Churchill, very well. Churchill was born to an aristocratic household in 1874, and attended the famed Harrow School. However, due to poor performance, Churchill was forced to give up on university, and instead went to Sandhurst Royal Military Academy, and decided to become a military man. After graduating from the military academy, he fought in places like India and Sudan. He also worked as a war correspondent.

In 1900, he fought in the Second Boer War, but became a prisoner of war. But he was able to escape. He was a man of astonishing luck.

That Churchill’s popularity has not waned in all these years is because he was able to thwart Hitler’s invasion during WWII, and was able to defend Britain as Prime Minister.

When the German Navy deployed massive numbers of “U-Boat” submarines and sank warships and civilian vessels alike, Churchill responded by obtaining fifty destroyers from the United States. And against an overwhelming German air force, after completing the radar network in five years, made it possible to discover German fighter planes quickly and prevented bombings on the mainland. Even after the war, Churchill published “The Second World War” and won the Nobel Prize for Literature. He was said to have both literary and artistic sense.


The Russian Invasion of Crimea Is Not a “Cold War” but an “Economic War”

Churchill was also a gifted orator. His numerous speeches continue to be learned and recited. Among them, his most famous is the “Iron Curtain” speech that given at Westminster College.

Churchill illustrated the conflict that already existed right after the Second World War between the States and the Soviets calling it the “Iron Curtain.”

“From Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic, an iron curtain has descended across the continent. Behind that line lie all the capitals of the ancient states of Central and Eastern Europe… Having crossed the ‘Iron Curtain’ and reaching Eastern Europe…the Communist parties or fifth columns constitute a growing challenge and peril to…civilization.”
With this speech, Churchill announced that the world had entered the Cold War era.

When we asked the spirit of Churchill, who lived in the midst of this critical era, about the Ukrainian problem, we received an unexpected answer.

“The problem is about whether the Ukraine chooses the EU or Russia due to economic problems.”

“It is on an economic level. It is not realistic to call it an “Iron Curtain.”

From Churchill’s perspective, the invasion of Ukraine is fundamentally different from a “new Cold War,” as it is an “economic war.” Ukraine could no longer exist under current circumstances economically and had to decide which would yield greater revenue: to go with the EU or Russia?
Indeed, it is different from the one-party dictatorship of the Communist regime in China, which takes away the rights of its citizens. Putin gradually is expanding freedom of speech and advancing the liberalization of the economy to the extent that it does not destroy Russia internally. Thus, he said that Russia today and the Soviet Union should not be treated in the same manner.


Collaborate With Russia and Establish a Siege Against China

However, if Russia and Japan should become too close with as allies, it could end up attracting a negative element in the form of “American vigilance.” The feeling that this is similar to the “resurrection of the Cold War” in the Western media signifies how the historical and political attitudes of the West appear to remain stuck in a Cold War mentality.

On this point, we would have to have the West understand that currently China, rather than Russia, is becoming more and more of a threat to the peace and stability in the world, and is in danger of creating a new Cold War.

Since Obama has become President, America has become more of an isolationist/”pacifist country” and their contribution to world peace has declined. With America’s influence waning, China is continuing with its military expansion. They keep intimidating surrounding countries, seeking to grab territory from the East and South China Sea, and claiming remote islands.
Southeast Asian countries such as the Philippines have been withstanding the spread of Chinese influence, but upon asking assistance from the U.S., were told to try and “solve their issues through dialogue.” This form of diplomacy of appeasement brings back memories of the relationship between Germany and Britain before the Second World War.

Chamberlain, who served as Prime Minister before Churchill, used diplomacy of appeasement against a rising Germany. Hitler, who was immensely popular with the people, declared rearmament in 1935, which was supposed to have been banned by the Treaty of Versailles. Prime Minister Chamberlain sympathized with Germany, who has been placed under severe constraints by the Treaty, and acquiesced to the British and German Naval Agreement that recognized Germany’s right to possess submarines. Due to this Agreement, not only was the German navy strengthened, but it led to the invasion of Ethiopia by Italy.

Even as Britain wanted to appease the Nazis, Churchill did not wish to act thusly. After the collapse of the Chamberlain regime, Churchill, who was at the forefront of criticizing the Nazis, became Prime Minister, and aggressively challenged Germany to war. However, if a firm stance had been initiated from the beginning against the Nazis, perhaps it would not have been necessary to suffer so many casualties.

The relationship between Britain and Germany then appears to be similar to the relationship between the United States and China today. We asked the man who fought against Hitler how to deal with China, which has been called the Nazis of today. He replied, “to seize China, Japan needs Russia.” He advised that, “From China’s perspective, the country behind them is most threatening,” so the relationship between Japan and Russia ought to be strengthened to defend against China’s increasing threat

The citizens might be reluctant at first to deepen their relationship with Russia, especially with the image of the Soviet Union from the Cold War still remaining.

However, Churchill’s spirit stated that, “Putin is not Hitler”. He insisted that he is also different from President Xi Jinping of China.

Indeed, China continues to expand their military expenditures, and their purpose remains opaque. They intervene in surrounding countries with different religions, ethnicities and languages, militarily creating colonies referred to as “autonomous regions”.

Russia’s actions, on the other hand, although they annexed the Crimean Peninsula, whose residents are predominantly Russian, and was originally a Russian territory, are fundamentally different from those exhibited by China.

He stated that, “President Putin is Pro-Japanese,” and “he thinks that for the future of Russia, it is best to bring Russia closer to the way Japan, the United States and Europe are organized,” and further, “if Russia made an alliance with China, they could destroy the U.S., but he doesn’t want to do that.” This was revealed also in President Putin’s guardian spirit’s spiritual message published two years ago. (“The New President of Russia, Putin, and the Future of an Empire” Published by Happy Science, by Ryuho Okawa).

From that perspective, to confound China’s ambitions is a most important issue for Japan and for Western nations. And to keep China in check, the relationship with Russia must not degrade.

Below are some points Churchill made also, all of which demand are attention. They indeed reveal the greatness of former Prime Minister Churchill.


  • Churchill’s evaluation of President Obama
  • What is necessary for Russian reformation?
  • How Churchill was able to see the danger of Hitler
  • What he said at the “Yalta Conference” where the post-war reorganization was decided
  • What is Russia trying to do by getting involved in the Ukraine and Syria?
    Churchill’s thoughts about the problem of the historical perspective being spread by China and Korea
  • Was the Tripartite Pact between Japan, Germany and Italy a good or a bad thing?
  • Analysis of Chinese military capability according to Churchill
  • “Apology” as a representative of Britain who wished for the United States to participate in the war
  • What will happen to the UN and the EU?

Astonishingly, it was revealed that when Churchill was born 2600 years ago, his soul had deep ties with Buddha. Please see the spiritual message for more on this.
