The Completed Testament Age Pastoral Counselling Lessons

“How to solve the the problems of our mind and emotions” by Yuji Otomo. We have for you, this publication ( pdf text and audio files), on internal guidance written by Yuji Otomo, who is a clinical psychologist living in Japan.

He and his Korean wife have 4 children. Some years ago I invited him to come to Europe to lead 2 seminars and Tomoko Harris was working with me on that project.  On the very day when everything was in place to announce his coming and begin to register participants, he had a massive stroke and has never fully recovered. He had worked with youth in Japan and counselling interracial couples in Korea and USA for many years, and I had great hopes that his seminars would open up a doorway especially for Japanese members to understand about psychology from the Divine Principle point of view, and begin to understand the patterns of behaviour in our families more clearly.

He was in a coma for several months and since becoming conscious he and his wife have continued on.  Mrs. Otomo works to support disadvantaged Blessed Children in Japan, as she cares for her children and husband who cannot speak or even feed himself.  Tomoko Harris has kept in touch with them, and sent the attached photo when she visited them last year.

Fortunately for us, I was able to recover some of his writings that I collected as I came to know his work with the help of a dear friend Hiromi Stephens, and arrange for him to come. This month, will show his book and audio files entitled  “The Completed Testament Age Pastoral Counselling” subtitled, “How to solve the the problems of our mind and emotions.” by Yuji Otomo .  Click here to listen to the individual lessons online as mp3 files

It is accompanied by a wonderful little book called “The Mirror Rule”, the Japanese version which is referred to in the on page 44. We have the english translation of this little book. Please read it before Mr Otomo’s or at least when you get to page 44. (download link to the English version here soon)

Then, as you finish those two readings, you will have had a delicious feast for your mind and will be digesting a lot of wonderful thoughts about how the Divine Principle relates to family relationships. Beyond that, there are 8 Practical Steps you can take. You have to take the practical steps after you read the other material if you want to have an adventure in liberation for your heart and emotions, in the privacy of your own home, just with you and Heavenly Parent. To do the 8 practical steps you need to put aside 2 hours and be undisturbed by anything else.

Some of you may have already read these books because I sold many at seminars in 2012-13. Now we are making the english pdf electronic version available here.  Please fully enjoy and share with others. If you have any questions about the ‘8 Practical Steps’ please email me at and I would be happy to make an appointment to follow up with you how to integrate those changes within yourself more deeply and progressively.

Wishing everyone a month of discovery, greater awareness and growing hope.

Sincerely, Susan Crosthwaite

    I am listening this morning. It is a good accompaniment to my cooking and cleaning up in the kitchen. I look forward to reading the pages again and applying this wisdom again to my daily response to life. Thank you Mr. Otomo! and thank you to Gianni for the high tech posting!

    Thank you SO much for this. Mr. Otomo was a Godsend to our community here in the SF Bay Area in California. We wish him the very best!

    Dear Susan,

    An interesting read. In the process of looking at whether this is an inspirational model or not. Research shows that inspiration lasts three days only. Incidentally, is there any applied research on the effectiveness of Mr Yuki Otomo’s prescriptive model whithin the Unification population?
    I so, where would I be able to find it?

    Thanks Susan.

    Hi Luz; great questions. I don’t think there are research results. Would you like me to email you the ‘Mirror Rule’? We don’t yet have permission to post it; it’s written by another author, but I can email you a rough pdf I made some years ago which is perfectly readable, and rounds out Mr. Otomo’s ideas. I can also email you the “8 Practical steps”, which I will ask to be posted today. Love, Susan
    P.S. Next week there’ll be some interesting articles he wrote for the Today’s World Magazine.
