Do Not Use God!

Many people mistakenly assume that praying to God for others’ health or world peace is a sacred thing. They think it’s good to pray for others, as long as not for themselves. But what I want them to realize that such a pray means trying to use God. Aren’t they trying to force God to do something?

If someone near you is sick in bed, you have to do something to help him/her first before praying to God. It’s advisable that you should be thankful for the sick person being kept alive after supporting the person.

Whether you are sick or unhappy now, you have to be grateful for being kept alive. As long as you try to use God, things won’t change for the better. You have to know that trying to use God itself is blasphemy. Mother nature, or God, is working hard to maintain this world where we live.

When you were born into this World of Reality, the karma you made in your previous life was balanced by the action of Ubusuna Kami, a local god of your birthplace. So once you are born, you don’t need to care about your previous life any more. What you are now is the result of the total of your own karma. All you have to do is do your best as long as you are alive, which is your mission in this World of Reality.

In this sense, it’s a foolish act to pray to God or a bogus cult figure in order to escape from reality without making efforts. If you are such a person, what were you born for? A “sacred” prayer to make God work for your own sake is far from it.

Imagine you work hard every day to get a small salary to provide for your children and they are always complaining to you ” I want more! I need you to work harder!” What would you think about them? Wouldn’t you feel sad? Wouldn’t you feel like leaving them? On the other hand, if your children are always thankful to you for working hard for them, you are sure to want to work harder. God would feel the same.

Too many people put pressure on God into working for them. It is the thankfulness of children (human beings) that makes parents (gods) feel happy. Direct the following words toward God, and everything will turn out all right ;

Light Exercise Gets Rid of the Spiritual Magnetism of Wandering Spirits

The other day, I was watching a TV program that featured a famous critic. He, over 70 now, makes it a rule to go up and down the stairs of a high-rise apartment he lived in. He used to take a walk for exercise, but since he was attacked by a ruffian, he has been doing the exercise of going up and down the stairs instead. The inside of his apartment is secured, so it’s a good idea, I think. What impressed me most is that he tries to keep healthy in spite of his old age. He might take more exercise than an average young man.

In the country, people move about by car and as a result they walk less often than people living in the city. When I stayed in a city where my office was located, I may have walked more than five times as long a distance as I do now. I walked a lot more every day though I went to office by train.

In the animal world, being unable to walk means death. people had better walk more so as to keep the strength of their legs as long as they can. I make a dash on a slope every day to get rid of my lack of exercise.

By the way, I called on an acquaintance of mine the other day and found a large treadmill in his living room. He told me that the machine weighed as much as 100 kg and it was the second one. He had owned another lightweight treadmill before, but as he got used to it he came to want a more powerful one.

He searched the Internet for a high-end treadmill and found a lot of expensive, large treadmills sold online. According to him, those treadmills are good ones whose speed is six kilometers per hour. I think treadmills are useful for the old. After checking a lot of treadmills he decided to buy the present treadmill sold in a mail shopping catalog. Its speed is ten kilometers per hour and cost him about fifty thousand yen.

I ran on his treadmill three times in all. The surface on which you run is very soft unlike the one of asphalt pavement roads, which is very important for the knee. Running on the road can hurt your knees and cause chronic gonalgia.

While you run on a treadmill, you should be conscious of the inside of your legs. The next day, I had a muscle ache where I hadn’t had it before. Muscles I couldn’t train just by walking on the road were trained due to the treadmill.

The only problem with a large treadmill is noise. There was a thick rubber sheet under the machine, but it was making a big noise because of its rotor and vibration. I thought I wanted to buy one, taking into consideration the membership fee of the sports gym and the danger of a car accident in running outside.

Walking or taking a light exercise can get rid of the spiritual magnetism of wandering spirits. Bad circulation causes your spiritual body to become impure. To drink hot water and take exercise makes your mind very stable. Well, in this way, it’s true that devoting yourself to your job with sweat on the forehead is the best.

Take exercise in your daily lives. Remember that you have rented your physical body from your ancestors. You must keep your body healthy in order to grow your mind.

Sitting all the time for mediation never makes your Inner God reveal itself. It’s essential that you keep both of your mind and body healthy. You don’t need any religious rituals or ascetic trainings to do it. Just as Buddha suggested, taking the golden mean – keeping balance in anything you do and never sticking to anything- is important in life.

Producing a Good Spiritual Magnetism

One scene from the movie Forrest Gump, which I saw several decades ago, was impressive. Having had his a relative die and become lonely and nihilistic, he suddenly began to run without reason. He just ran and ran straight, and finally he ran across America. Though he succeeded in crossing America as a result, he didn’t began to run with a such goal.

He running through the great nature of America looked like Christ.Trying to see him running with silence, people who got interested in him began to gather around him.

What I thought watching the scenes of the movie was how beautiful a man looks devoting himself to something. When he was nihilistic, no one paid attention to him. People avoided him and he was lonely. But, no sooner had he been absorbed in one thing, enjoying doing it and moved by the great nature, than people began to gather around him. He had no intention of attracting people or becoming famous.

In the modern world, there are a lot of people feeling lonely. As long as you wonder how you become friends with others and how you can make people like you, people will pay no attention to you. People who tend to feel lonely should try to enjoy something in the present situations. The mind is like a creature, and is also Inner God. You can make it “small” or “large” at will.

When you please your mind by devoting yourself to something with gratitude toward the present situations, your spiritual body begins to give off magnetism comfortable for others.

The essence of the human mind is conscience, or a thoughtful mind. People, wanting to touch its magnetism, will be attracted to such a warm-hearted person. On the other hand, when you try to depend on someone or attract people, your magnetism is heavy. People feel its heaviness and can’t enjoy themselves.

Directing your gratitude toward your ancestral spirits and gods every day can be a practice to give off the comfortable magnetism. As you do it every day, your spiritual body comes to take on a good magnetism that attracts others naturally.

What kind of magnetism do you put on today?

Making Efforts in the Dark Makes Your Soul Develop

You might think that living in this World of Reality is really tough. But it is not true, for everything is not accidental but has its own meaning. Since you don’t know its meaning or reason, you are apt to think that life is tough and harsh.

Everything happens as a result of some cause. Each family, whose members share the same spiritual line of their family line, is affected by other dimensions.

For example, a boss who has been distressing a lot of subordinates and people around him receives a negative energy of grudge from them. Any deed against his conscience, or Inner God, no matter what reason he has or what situations he is in, is sure to cause himself the negative energy, . It is possible that he will fall ill, have an accident or be distressed by another.

If the boss has a son, the son can commit violent acts against him when the boss gets old. Or his wife can be hard on him and abandon him in his old age. This is because there is a kind of karma, a balance sheet of cause and effect, among family members. If karma is not offset in the present life, it is carried over to the other world. Causes and its consequences have a very complex interrelation because the cause of a consequence happening now is not always due to a cause in the present life.

But you don’t need to worry, trying to know the reason or cause of a thing. If you’re worried too much, you may fall a prey to a bogus psychic or a bad religious group that squeeze money from you, adding to your bad karma. To get involved in such a person or group makes you lose a chance of sublimating your karma. Also, trying to know your previous life can revive your bad karma that would otherwise have been sublimated, making it your another mental burden.

Accept your present situations as they are. Everything, good or bad, has its own meaning. As long as you think “I could bear it if I knew the reason,” you cannot sublimate your bad karma. Making efforts even in the dark makes your soul grow up. Not being allowed to know the reason itself is important and has some meaning.

After you die, you’re to know all the currents of causes and consequences. In the other world, anyone will be convinced of the meaning of everything that happened in the past and strongly regret what they did.

When you come to an end with gratitude toward everything that happened to you, a great sublimation will occur. The words that offset your bad karma and improve your future are:

It’s Energy of Gratitude and Ancestral Spirits that Save You

People live worried about something, for they’re not sure about the future. But thanks to the anxiety, they can make efforts every day.

There are some people, trying to know their future so as to feel relieved, who visit a religious group, a psychic or a fortune teller. However, since they come to slight their important housework job, health checkup or medical treatment gradually, they will find themselves having lost a lot of time and money and gotten into new trouble. All they have to do is just do what they have to do, after all.

Well, is there a strange, sacred power that helps you to do things? Yes, there is. It’s the energy of gratitude that you accumulate by having the right faith, or being grateful for your ancestors and your present situations. When you’re in trouble, the energy works unconsciously together with the help of your ancestral spirits.

God never shows favoritism. It regards the whole human beings as one entity , so it doesn’t pay attention to each person’s desires. It is shameful that many people and bad religious groups try to make God do something in favor of themselves, which is blasphemy. Such a selfish pray will have an adverse effect on them.

Also, right deities never save your ancestral spirits or spirits in agony in exchange for money. Bad psychics threat their clients by saying “Your ancestors are suffering,” ” Your problem is due to spirits” and recommend them to pay for an expensive memorial service. Can’t the poor hold a memorial service for their ancestors? It is clear that such a service has nothing to do with the right kind of deities. To pay a lot of money to bad guys who use God only makes them rich and fat.

To survive this tough world, it’s best to make efforts working on practical problems and to accumulate magnetism of gratitude in the invisible world. If you do this continuously, your future will change for the better. It’s you that help yourself just like “God helps those who help themselves.” God doesn’t pay any attention to personal desires, but helps people who try to live, for it’s God that has control over all living things.

In this world of Reality, you cannot see the future and it makes you uneasy. But this is the reason you can train yourself very well. If you lived in a world where you can see the future, you couldn’t develop or evolve at all.

Any trouble happening in this world will come to an end without exception. The grace of God lies in this fact. Now is the time when souls of people making efforts positively even in difficulties evolve dramatically, so that human beings will separate into two groups: those who evolve and those who degenerate.

It’s the Efforts You Made in the Past That Help You Now

You can make your heart positive or negative. It’s up to you which one to choose. No matter what happens, it’s all up to you whether you choose to be positive or negative about it. In any case, limited time passes without discontinuity.

If your life time is, say, eighty years, don’t you think it better to spend a lot of time keeping a positive mind than a negative one? However hard he tries, everyone has to leave this world for the the other world.

However, I know it’s sometimes difficult to keep a positive mind. In such a case, it’s the magnetism of gratitude you accumulated in the past that practically backs you up. It, which can be accumulated by holding a memorial service for your ancestor every day, will have a great impact on your future with a time difference like a wave wave.

The thought energy you generated in the past will support you in the future. In other words, it is not God that helps you now but the efforts you made in the past. When you’re in a trouble, the positive magnetism of gratitude of your own making will wrap you gently, encouraging you to face up to the trouble. This shows an advanced spiritual essence.

On the other hand, if you’re always praying for something to gods or your ancestral spirits, the negative energy of imploration and dependence will wrap you when in trouble. The more you try to depend on something or escape from reality, the more negative energy, or Reiki(レイキ), you’ll have as a spiritual handicap. In this sense, accumulating positive energy by offering gratitude toward gods and your ancestors every day is a kind of ingenuity to make your life a better one.

Some people take the trouble to visit a psychic, spiritual healer or religious group, only to receive unnecessary negative energy that makes them unhappy. You have to know that some founders of religious groups are wicked. They attach spiritual dirt to visitors and pretend to remove it by performing rituals in order to make money. The truth is evil spirits control them from behind, making them do what the evil spirits want them to.

This is a reason for which pious persons who have the wrong kind of religious faith tend to be unhappier and poorer than non-religious ones. This phenomenon will be clear to everyone in ten years or so. They’re losing their luck and life energy.

The same thing can be said about wicked spiritual healers. They actually don’t want their clients to get better. Because, once they do become healthy, they stop visiting the healer, and their income decreases as a result. So, they secretly plant a kind of spiritual “time bomb” on their clients.

Healers make their clients’ health better at first and then make it worse on purpose after a while for them to come back again. They repeat this on and on for the purpose of squeezing money out of the sick. Healers don’t know they themselves are controlled by evil spirits. They can make a lot of money, but at the same time his/her life energy is absorbed by the evil spirits in return for the money.

You can choose whether you lead your life with a positive attitude or a negative one. The future is not fixed. You can make a choice in any time no matter what situations you’re facing. A positive attitude and gratitude will surely change your future for the better.

Comforting the Whole Ancestral Spirits

I used to say that when you hold a memorial service for your ancestral spirits,

(1) Put up the first incense stick at the right part of an incense holder and imagine your whole male ancestral spirits related to your surname.

(2) Put up the second one at the left part of the incense holder and imagine your whole female ancestral spirits of your familine related to your surname.

(3) Put up the last one at the front part of the incense holder so that the three incense sticks form a triangle, and imagine the whole spirits related to you, such as spirits of dead babies, relatives, acquaintances, living persons, pet animals and so on.

When I started this blog site, I recommended the way like the above. However, seeing the reactions of readers, I felt that some people couldn’t concentrate well on the service because they were taking too much care of their family name. Adopted children or their parents having got divorced, they were so much worried about which name to imagine that they made their ancestral spirits feel uneasy.

So, if you don’t know which family name you should imagine in holding a memorial service for your ancestors, I recommend that you imagine the whole of your male and female ancestral spirits regardless of your surname.

Ancestral spirits who need your help still have their own individuality and gender. Going back to your family line for no more than three generations, you’ll find that the number of your ancestors are huge. So if you imagine only ancestral spirits of your family name, you’ll fail to comfort a lot of them.

Anyway, an important thing is for you to comfort the whole of your ancestral spirits without omission. Try to offer gratitude to all of your ancestral spirits in your own way, no matter how.

People are apt to make much of the deceased they know. But the truth is such spirits who have just died are taken care of by spirits who passed away before them. Therefore, as you succeed in comforting the whole of your ancestral spirits, it becomes easy for the spirits having left this world before to take care of the spirits who have just gone into the other world. Again, when you hold a memorial service for ancestors, try to comfort all of your ancestral spirits without sticking too much to particular dead people or your family name.

As you hold a memorial service every day thinking about your whole ancestral spirits, you will cease to stick to your family name or line. Then memorial services for your ancestral spirits will change into the ones for all human beings, the couple of the original man and woman and gods. Thorough memorial services for ancestral spirits will make you in the state of Kannagara(カンナガラ) , or being with God. This is the safest way to make you recognize that you have already been with God.

The fact that you live in this present time means that you stand on the edge of the biological chain made by all living things who lived in the past for millions of years, including your ancestors. The deed of offering gratitude to all living things in the past holds them together and passes on their lives to the future.

No matter what situations you’re facing, you have to accept and respect yourself, so that your future will be bright for sure.
