Ise has picked up its momentum


I visited the Grand Shrine of Ise(伊勢神宮) on May 4 in the 19 year of the Heisei era(2007). According to my inspiration, Gekuu(外宮), the Outer Shrine of Ise, is not a place for the sacred spirit serving food for Naikuu(内宮), the Iner Shrine of Ise, but the miracle place leading to both Polaris, the highest in a holy rank, and the Big Dipper as its Kenzoku(眷属),  a subordinate.

  • serve 提供する
  • miracle 奇跡の
  • lead to A Aに通じる
  • both A and B AとB両方
  • holy 神の
  • rank 格
  • subordinate 従属物

The next important is Izouguu(伊雑宮), one of an associated shrine of the Grand Shrine of Ise, the official name of which is Izawanomiya. This is an uncommon place where there still exists the spirit of Amaterasuohomikmai at the highest level in holy rank ranging from 1 to 10. And Naikuu has been recognized as a shrine until now where ancestral spirits of the Emperor reside.

But, when I visited Naikuu this time, I saw a number of holy shining pillar stand between heaven and earth. From this year(2007) on, the World of Gods has started move. It has been advancing vigorously. The world is going to change a lot.

A suggestion has come to me that I should read the world ‘Ise’(伊勢)as ‘ikioi’(勢い)meaning ‘momentum’ in Japanese. In the days ahead, a sense of time will accelerate with great vigor and human beings will also change.

  • with great vigor 怒濤の勢いで

Ise is going to be paid attention to worldwide. The earth from Hakusan(白山) to Ise has been important area since the ancient times , connecting remains of sun worship.

There is a sacred plan where first the spirituality of Ise will be known in the world and then Hakusan.
