When You Breathe In, You’re Taking in Life Energy as Well as Oxygen

天津 神様

Whenever I see people who are worried, irritated, depressed and sick, I find their breathing is shallow. In breathing, they don’t send air and prana, or life energy, not only to the bottom of their lungs but also to their abdomen. They seem to breathe not with their abdomen but with their neck. Such a way of breathing leads to chronic lack of oxygen, weakening all the cells of their body. When cells get weak, the power of circulation inside their body will decrease and they can be obese. It goes without saying that when a physical body is weak, so is a mind.

  • whenever S+V SがVする時はいつでも
  • irritated イライラした
  • depressed 落ち込んだ
  • breathing 呼吸
  • lung 肺
  • abdomen 腹部
  • neck 首
  • lead to A Aを引き起こす
  • chronic 慢性的な
  • circulation 循環
  • obese 肥満な

Breathing is important because it takes in life energy from space as well as oxygen. This life energy, taken in, becomes nutrition for your spiritual body, strengthens it and influences your physical body, too. Physical bodies age and become ill sooner or later, but by breathing slowly and deeply taking in life energy, you can have your mind stable. Even if you feel pain in some parts of your body, you can bear it as long as your mind is stable.

  • as well as A  Aだけでなく
  • nutrition 栄養
  • age 年をとる
  • sooner or later 遅かれ早かれ
  • stable 安定した
  • bear 耐える
  • as long as S+V SがVする限り

Not only breathing deeply but also reminding yourself of gratitude is important. By doing so, you can have your Inner God reveal itself and unexpected good things will happen to you.

  1. Breathe in through your nose slowly expanding your abdomen in such a way that you use the whole abdomen.
  2. Breath out through your mouth or nose. Take double the time of breathing in.
  3. As you breathe, remind yourself of gratitude saying in your mind ” Thank you so much for keeping us alive” if it’s possible.
  • remind oneself of A  Aを想起する
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • reveal oneself 現れる
  • unexpected 予期せぬ

When I use my PC, I often sit in a reclining chair with my legs stretched. In doing this, my abdomen moves up and down every time I breathe. I could move it greatly as if it were a creature or something. If you feel that the energy of your spiritual body is getting low, concentrate on trying the things above for about ten minutes so that your abdomen moves up and down greatly, and you’ll find life energy filled in your body like a pump.

  • stretch 伸ばす
  • every time S+V SがVするたびに
  • creature 生き物
  • concentrate 集中する

The other day, looking at myself in the mirror before taking a bath, I found my waist was narrowed. And the muscle of my shoulder looked stronger. I remembered then that my waste had become so slim that I needed to draw my belt tighter. Also, the change of drinking water from cold water to hot water seems to have affected my waistline. Drinking cold water makes your body cold, so that you body tries to accumulate fat against coldness unconsciously. It’s also important not to make your body temperature low in terms of immunity.

  • narrow 狭くする
  • muscle 筋肉
  • seem to have pp 〜したように思われる
  • accumulate 蓄積する
  • fat 脂肪
  • in terms of A  Aの観点から
  • immunity 免疫

To stay healthy from now on;

● Be conscious of your breathing.

● Drink hot water. It’s advisable to drink more than one litter of tepid water a day about your body temperature.

● Take in natural mineral and salt from kelp. Cut a sheet of kelp into two or three, wash it lightly with water, put it in a cup with tepid water in it and drink it. You can use the kelp during the day, adding hot water to the cup. You don’t have to do this everyday. You can do it every other day.

● Take care of the nutritional balance of your meal. You should eat soybean processed food, root crops, seaweed and brown rice. Japanese food is good.

I feel that these things above will be more and more important from now on. In addition to it, the most important thing is to remind yourself of the following phrase every day;

  • conscious 意識的な
  • tepid water ぬるま湯
  • advisable 望ましい
  • kelp 昆布
  • add 加える
  • every other day 一日置きに
  • nutritional 栄養の
  • soybean 大豆
  • seaweed 海藻
  • brown rice 玄米

Who Judges Your Sins ?

天津 神様

Anyone has made mistakes and regretted what you did. You might be in trouble now. Contents and degree of worries are different from person to person. And every time you make a mistake, you worry and wonder if the sin is forgiven by God?

  • regret 後悔する
  • every time S+V SがVするたびに

But it is not that something outside of you forgives your sin or not. If nothing bad happens to you after you did a bad deed, do you think the sin was forgiven by God? Otherwise, would you think the sin wasn’t? The true God is not the being to forgive you or not to forgive you. God just enjoys itself or feels sad together with you.

  • deed 行い
  • otherwise さもなければ
  • together with A Aと一緒に

In other words, if you commit a sin, your conscience never forgives you. Spiritual worlds are where your thought is expanded. As long as you have your physical body in the World of Reality, even if you do some bad deeds, you can deceive yourself or forget about them, thinking “It’s not my fault,” or “The guy is also to blame” and so on. However, once you’ve lost your physical body and become a soul, you can’t think like that. When you remember your sins you committed in the past, your guilty conscience is expanded and you’ll suffer from it. Then you begin to judge yourself.

  • commit 犯す
  • conscience 良心
  • expand 拡大する
  • deceive ごまかす
  • fault 過失
  • once S+V いったんSがVすると

It is your conscience, or Inner God, that judges whether you’re forgiven or not. If you think that you did something wrong, all you have to do is do something good exceeding your sins without expecting of a return. The attitude holy spirits have toward sins committed by humans is so simple that it may lead to misunderstanding. My words of explanation might be misunderstood, but still what I’m saying is right in light of  Kannagara(カンナガラ), or the state of being with God. A revelation says “Admit your sin honestly, and you’ll be acquitted.”

  • judge 判断する
  • exceed 超える
  • return 見返り
  • attitude 考え方
  • misunderstanding 誤解
  • in light of A  Aに照らして
  • revelation 啓示
  • admit 認める
  • acquit 無罪とする

If you commit a sin, you have only to admit it and accept the consequence. As long as you want to run away from the judgement or extenuate your sin, you cannot stop asking God for forgiveness and struggling with an uneasy feeling. Live life to the full in this World of Reality together with God existing in a universe inside of you. Receive anything happening to you and taste good things and bad things with gratitude. Then, all you’ll find out will be great gratitude for the present situations.

  • consequence 結果
  • extenuate 軽減する
  • struggle 悩む
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • the present situations 現状

For you to commit a sin is to make your Inner God do the same thing. Your Inner God would hide itself in the depth of your heart. This is a real shame. It depends on you whether you give delight to your Inner God, living in this World of Reality with you, or make it sad. The way you live in such a way that you please your Inner God is desirable because you were born to please God and enjoy yourself, too.

  • depth 奥底
  • shame 恥ずべきこと
  • delight 喜び
  • desirable 望ましい

What Should You Do to Make a Decision without Regret?

天津 神様

The other day, I talked with a business acquaintance coming from another prefecture on business. According to him, a second-tier construction company listed as a stock in the region that he lived went bankrupt.  An executive of a local major relationship bank became the president of the construction company a month ago after removing its founding family.

  • acquaintance 知人
  • prefecture 県
  • second-tier 準大手の
  • construction 建設
  • go bankrupt 倒産する
  • executive 役員
  • remove 排除する

The bank must’ve known the inside affairs of the company. What happened during the month? It seems that the suspension of the loan to the company triggered the bankruptcy. The local bank, unlike major ones, made an unshrinking decision to make the company go bankrupt without hesitation, I thought. The bank itself must’ve been desperate. Bold decisions of this kind will be difficult to make.

  • affairs 事情
  • suspension 一時停止
  • trigger 引き金となる
  • unshrinking 大胆な
  • hesitation ためらい
  • desperate 必死の

The company seems to have got contracts too easily for the past few years. If you work for a company closely related to such a prime contractors, when it begins to get contracts taking no account of profits, you can think about what to do next observing the situation. But subcontractors, sub-sub contractors or individual subcontractor can’t do this. They don’t know what’s going on in its client companies, no matter how hard they work. The employees have no choice but to believe the contractor, work hard receiving a draft payable four months later and manage to make a living expecting the money. But suddenly one day, they can’t cash the bill.

  • contract 契約
  • prime contractor 元請け
  • take account of A Aを考慮に入れる
  • profit 利益
  • observe 観察する
  • make a living 生計を立てる
  • cash 現金化する

I feel pity for subcontractors. They cannot help continueing getting contracts with their prime contractor providing them with work steadily, even when they feel something is wrong, like relationship between men and women. If you made a quick decision, you could avoid a tragedy of the future. But it’s difficult to do. You’re likely to avoid facing up the reality, thinking “Economy might get better soon,” or “I think I can handle it.” The same thing can be said about personal matters.

  • feel pity かわいそうに思う
  • cannot help ~ing 〜せざるをえない
  • provide 供給する
  • steadily 安定的に
  • avoid 避ける
  • economy 経済
  • personal 個人的な

So, what should you do to make up your mind? First, practice holding appreciative memorial services for your ancestors to get rid of your unnecessary, negative spiritual magnetism and then do what you can do to the best of your ability. By doing so, you can make a clear decision by yourself. You could do it without any hesitation. You would be ready to accept any consequences.

  • practice 実践する
  • appreciative 感謝の
  • ancestor 先祖
  • get rid of A Aを取り除く
  • to the best of one’s ability 精一杯
  • by oneself 一人で
  • consequence 結果

When you can’t make up you mind despite the practice of holding the memorial services, it can be the best not to make a decision for the time being, which means that challenges for you to experience and overcome still remain. If you don’t try your best to get over them, you’ll regret.

  • despite A Aにもかかわらず
  • for the time being しばらく
  • overcome 乗り越える
  • remain 残っている
  • regret 後悔する

Also, if you leave a decision to a fortuneteller or another person, you’re sure to have regret about the decision and feel uneasy endlessly because you’ve abandon what you should’ve overcome and left it as it was. The same kind of problem will happen to you again.

  • leave A to B AをBに任せる
  • fortune teller 占い師
  • be sure to~ きっと〜するだろう
  • feel uneasy 不安に感じる
  • endlessly 際限なく
  • abandon 放棄する

In modern society, a lot of people, not knowing what to do, are apt to consult pay-charging psychics or healers, rely on mumbo jumbo attaching to them unnecessary, negative spiritual magnetism, and be lost in a maze with no exit, making their situations much worse. Therefore, it’s important to know the following phrase, which definitely improves your life without the help of others:

  • modern society 現代社会
  • be apt to~ 〜しがちである
  • consult 相談する
  • pay-charging 有料の
  • rely on A  Aに頼る
  • maze 迷路
  • exit 出口

It’s Only You Who can Cure Your Mental Illness

天津 神様

People that fee-charging psychics and healers knowing the spiritual world to some extent dislike and want to avoid most are those suffering from mental illness. In fact, it’s impossible for them, who are depended on by their clients in exchange for money, to deal with such illness.

  • receive 受け取る
  • to some extent ある程度
  • suffer 苦しむ
  • depend on A   Aに頼る
  • in exchange for A Aと交換に
  • deal with A Aに対処する
  • as a matter of fact 実際問題として

Gods never extend a helping hand to such psychics and healers because they swindle money out of their clients. They do spiritual business because of their ignorance of the spirit world. They don’t know they’re just exchanging their life span for money. Such business has so spiritually difficult problems.

  • swindle 騙しとる
  • ignorance 無知
  • because of A Aのために
  • exchange 交換する

The problem is that as mental illness of a person progresses, spirits from various spiritual worlds begin to relate themselves with the person, according to the degree of the illness. People who are always complaining about something and have had grudge against society for many years will become mentally ill gradually and be affected by spirits with the same kind of mind. If the mental illness gets worse enough to be apparent from their words, actions and facial expressions, they can be said to be in the state of being unable to control themselves. Such people can commit an indiscriminate murder.

  • progress 進行する
  • relate oneself with A Aに関わってくる
  • complain 不平を言う
  • grudge 恨み
  • gradually 徐々に
  • affect 影響する
  • state 状態
  • commit 犯す
  • indiscriminate murder 無差別殺人

People under the influence of evil worlds will increase further. So fee-charging psychics and healers will end up facing a spiritual fight against evil spirits behind their clients. Spiritual beings who can make humans kill a lot of people are so strong that they will be defeated easily.

  • influence 影響
  • further さらに
  • end up ~ing 〜することになる
  • be sure to~ きっと〜する
  • defeat 打ち負かす

Not to become mentally ill, its prevention is important. It is holding appreciative memorial services for your ancestors everyday. Once you begin to suffer from mental illness due to spiritual waves your lost ancestral spirits give off, it’s possible for you to encounter a serious problem.

  • prevention 予防
  • appreciative 感謝の
  • due to A Aのために
  • give off A Aを発する
  • encounter 遭遇する

However, the very first cause of your mental illness is your mental weakness or attitude to try to escape from reality. Conversely, the key to the improvement of your mental illness lies in yourself. In short, you can cure yourself. Furthermore, it is only you who can cure your mental illness. Mental illness can never be cured by others. All doctors or counselors can do is improve it, but it’s only temporary. After a while, you’ll find yourself suffering from the same mental illness. Basically,you have to get back on your feet.

  • cause 原因
  • attitude 態度
  • conversely 逆に言えば
  • improvement 改善
  • furthermore さらに
  • temporary 一時的な
  • get back on one’s feet 立ち直る

I know from my experiences that a lot of people who had suffered from depression or had had a strong feeling of anxiety for decades improved dramatically as soon as they began to hold an appreciative memorial service for their ancestors. There are a lot of stages of mental illness ranging from a mild symptom to a severe one. Countermeasures against these are;

  • experience 経験
  • for decades 何十年も
  • improve 改善する
  • range 範囲にわたる
  • symptom 症状
  • countermeasure 対抗策
  1. Hold a memorial service for your ancestors everyday with yorishiro, a medium at which spirits can stay temporally, such as a strip of paper or memorial tablet, and three incense sticks. If you can’d do this;
  2. Hold the memorial service without saying anything. Just offer three incense sticks to your ancestors. If you can’t do this either,
  3. Try to remind yourself of gratitude in your daily lives, always thinking “Thank you so much for keeping us alive.” If you’re too sick to do this,
  4. Have your family member hold the service for yourself. The symptom of your illness would be improved little by little. And try to do it when you think you can.

Doing your best is most important in a short life. It’s no use expecting something good to happen to you without doing anything.

  • medium 媒介
  • incense stick 線香
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • try best 最善を尽くす

To Avoid Contact With Others Would Cause Your Soul to Rot

天津 神様

I listened to an interesting talk show on the radio this morning which was about fermentation. According to it, fermentation and putrefaction are different things. Putrefaction is mainly caused by a particular single microbe, while fermentation by a lot of microbes and as the result of their cooperation, ingredients good for human bodies are produced. Working by a single microbe results in bad ingredients and a lot of microbes good ingredients.

  • fermentation 発酵
  • putrefaction  腐敗
  • microbe 微生物
  • cooperation 協力
  • ingredient 成分
  • result in A Aという結果になる

One day, as one episode of the talk show, a man and his wife were trying to make home-brewed sake, but the fermentation wouldn’t begin. They had had a quarrel before making it. They wondered why. Then, it occurred to the wife that the atmosphere of their quarrel might have affected the fermentation. So they indulged in affectionate familiarities in front of the wooden barrel, when the fermentation began.

  • home-brewed 自家醸造の
  • quarrel 口喧嘩
  • it occurs to A that … …ということがAの頭に思い浮かぶ
  • familiarity 馴れ馴れしい行為
  • barrel 樽

I felt this showed a fundamental law of this world God laid at the inception of the World of Reality. More often than not, cooperative actions are more important than independent ones in company organizations. In the same way, to seclude yourself up in a house could make yourself physically and mentally sick.

  • fundamental 根本的な
  • inception 初め
  • more often than not しばしば
  • organization 組織
  • in the same way 同様に
  • seclude 引きこもらせる

If you were to live alone in this world, your life might be easy. Such an easy life, however, couldn’t cause the fermentation of your soul. God has made this world in such a way that souls of the selfish persons trying to avoid contact with other people rot. It is not until you receive good and bad stimulations from others that you can make your soul ferments and your conscience develops.

  • in such a way that S+V  SがVするように
  • rot 腐敗する
  • It is not until S’+V’ that S+V S’がV’して初めてSはVする
  • ferment 発酵する
  • conscience 良心
  • develop 発達する

○ Bullied at office and home

○ Bullied at school

○ Troubled by the relationship with neighbors  etc.

Don’t worry. All you have to do is accept them positively thinking of them as precious stimulations that make your soul ferment for the better. If you regard them as bad and try to avoid them, the fermentation will stop and putrefaction will begin. The phrase to cause fermentation that raises your Inner God is:

  • bully いじめる
  • trouble 悩ます
  • relationship 関係
  • neighbor 隣人
  • All you have to do is ~ あなたは〜しさえすればよい
  • positively 積極的に
  • stimulation 刺激
  • for the better 良い方向に
  • avoid 避ける

Mental Space Can Protect You from Evil Spirits

天津 神様

Vicious crimes have been happening these days in which female high school students, elderly people and children are the victims. These crimes are really malicious because the victims are mainly weak people. Criminals of these crimes have no sense of shame at all and they commit the crime without hesitation. Selfish people who have no room in their heart are terrible beasts.

  • vicious 凶悪な
  • crime 犯罪
  • malicious タチの悪い
  • commit 犯す
  • hesitation ためらい
  • selfish 利己的な
  • beast 獣

Once you’ve lost your mental space and get possessed with spiritual beings from the World of Hell, you can’t control yourself with your mind totally occupied by them. You would do something vicious without hesitation like a robot controlled by someone else. If you have some mental space, you will suffer some mental conflicts even when you’re possessed. Thinking ” I shouldn’t do this” or ” I’d be arrested,” you will have a conflict against your desire to commit a crime.

  • once S+V 一旦SがVすると
  • get possessed  憑かれる
  • occupy 占める
  • suffer 苦しむ
  • desire 願望

The size of mental space differ from person to person. For example, Mr.A’ mental space is 80 with 100 being the whole and Mr.B’s is 50. Suppose that a spiritual being from the World of Hell whose spiritual body are the size of 50, is trying to possess Mr. A and Mr. B each. Mr. A would suffer a mental conflict between his conscience of 30 and his malicious desire occupying  50, while Mr.B couldn’t control himself because his mind is fully occupied by the malicious desire and he would commit a crime with no hesitation.Mr. B’s spiritual body would see himself committing a crime as if someone were looking down the scene. His spiritual body would be observing all of his surroundings with understanding.

  • differ 異なる
  • suppose 考える
  • conscience 良心
  • observe 観察する

If you have enough mental space, even if you’re said bad things or possess by a spirit from Hell, you can handle it absorbing them into your space. Also, crafty spiritual beings know how big a person’s good will, so they keep away from such a person avoiding the contact with the person. In this sense, reminding yourself of gratitude in your daily life, and thinking ” Thank you so much for keeping us alive” are very important, which can be a strong talisman.

  • absorb 吸収する
  • crafty ずる賢い
  • keep away from A Aに近づかないでおく
  • in this sense この意味で
  • remind oneself of A  Aを想起する
  • talisman 魔除け

To have enough mental space, it’s necessary for you to practice holding memorial services for your ancestors and try to notice what you should be grateful for that you’ve taken for granted. If you do it, you’ll understand that you’re kept alive, and your capacity of accepting everything, good or bad, will increase gradually. You can expand your mental space to infinity. It’s like a small universe. If you succeed in expanding your mind to the small universe, then you can make people around you touch the sea of good will. When this kind of people increase in number, it’s quite easy to make this world a much better place.

  • notice 気がつく
  • grateful 感謝して
  • take A for granted Aを当たり前と思う
  • gradually 徐々に
  • expand 広げる
  • infinity 無限

Once Your Mind Goes Out of Control, It’s Difficult to Stop It.

天津 神様

Once you begin to worry about the future, it’s likely that you cannot stop worrying and begin to suffer, though you haven’t been in any bad situation yet. Even in such a situation, you would manage to get over it. Time goes on with everything changing, like getting  new information, meeting new people or beginning to read this blog etc. Therefore, your state of mind you expected before will be different. The proverb “Fear is often worse than the danger itself” is true.  You may be most distressed before something bad happens to you.

  • likely ありそうな
  • manage to~ なんとか〜する
  • get over A Aを乗り越える
  • fear 恐怖
  • danger 危険
  • distressed 苦しい

When you become mentally ill, you will come to lose you cheerfulness in your expression. It’s important to look at your face in the mirror. Look inside yourself, not just looking at your appearance so that you can check your state of mind. Look at your eyes, and you know it. When you think “Oh, my face is awful today,” it’s important for you to try not to get angry or worried that day. Once human minds get out of control, they become difficult to control.

  • cheerfulness  明るさ
  • state 状態
  • once S+V いったんSがVすると

In such a case, from a spiritual point of view, spirits similar to you in spiritual wave are coming near and as the result, your worries will grow larger in your mind. To prevent this, it’s effective to remind yourself of gratitude to your ancestors. In the World of Reality, making efforts is important in everything. As for the prevention of mental illness, you should do something about it, not leave it as it is. Anyway, it’s important for you to try to recall gratitude in everyday life.

  • point of view 観点
  • similar 似ている
  • prevent 防ぐ
  • effective 効果がある
  • gratitude 感謝
  • ancestor 先祖

Mr. Munetada Kurozumi(黒住宗忠), a shintoist in Edo period, cherished and raised his Inner God and succeeded in turning it into Amaterasu-oho-mi-kami(天照太御神)while he was alive. He was always happy with a smile together with Amaterasu-oho-mi-kami. According to a famous anecdote about him,  every time he was said by an religious man “Your face is that of a stupid,” he was delighted thinking “Oh, my faith practice is doing well.” A relaxed facial expression raising no suspicion, not a serious one,  is the proof that the person’s mind is flexible. It’s very good as the proverb says “Soft methods often get the better of brute force.”

  • cherish 大事にする
  • raise 育てる
  • succeed in ~ing 〜することに成功する
  • turn A into B AをBに変える
  • anecdote 逸話
  • every time S+V SがVするたびに
  • stupid 愚か者
  • be delighted 喜ぶ
  • suspicion 疑い
  • proof 証拠
  • get the better of A Aを打ち負かす

You’re not beautiful? No problem. Take good care about your beauty from within. People who hate themselves(=God)are often ugly both in appearance and character.

  • ugly 醜い
  • appearance 容姿
