How much is your handicap?


There is a handicapping system in golf. I don’t usually play golf, though.  A good golf player is a single-digit handicap golfer and a professional player plays golf with no handicap. A beginner plays with a lot of handicap and he goes around the course with  a good single-digit handicap golfer. In this game, it is important how much handicap you play with before playing, I think. There will be some rule about it.

  • handicapping ハンディ
  • professional プロの
  • important 重要な

We can say the same thing about our journeys of souls. Before we were born in this world, we knew how much debt you owed in the previous lives. We consider before we are given birth how much we can improve ourselves paying back the debt. There is also a chance of our giving a birth a miss if we think that paying back the debt would be so hard that we might end up in increase in the debt.

There is no change in spiritual worlds because of fixation of state reflecting deeds in the previous lives. So if you want to change your situations, you have no choice but to come into this world and grow up in spirituality. If you have accumulated too much debt, you are likely to be born selecting a handicapped body, sickly body, or family environment and so on in order to pay back a huge amount of debt. But on coming into being, your memory is erased so that your nature can reveal itself, for if you kept the memory of your accounts, this precious life would be a throwaway match and there would be no shock which makes your soul grow up.

How do you live in anxiety that there is no knowing the future? Once you are born, it is no wonder that you are always comparing yourself with others, for both a person with positive handicap and one with huge negative handicap live together in the same place.

  • positive   よい
  • negative 悪い

The purpose of your life is not to be rich. Because humans are doomed to die alone with no possession. The point is how much you can grow your inner god. It is preposterous to pray to god for something or expect its protection. It is the way you live trying to grow your inner god that attracts the true help from the parent god.
