Questions and answers (20)-(21)


Question 20:

I think everyone of us has a factor of cancer cell, and when we can’t prevent it from developing, we have cancer. If we sublimed our arrogance, jealousy, and conceit well, could we avoid having cancer?

  • factor 要因
  • cancer cell がん細胞
  • prevent A from~ing Aが〜するのを防ぐ
  • sublime 昇華する
  • arrogance 傲慢
  • jealousy 妬み
  • conceit うぬぼれ
  • avoid 避ける


Stubborn people have to be careful of cancer. I feel such people have cancer cell turn into a lump and become cancer cell. If such people remind themselves of gratitude for the fundamental truth of being kept alive, the cancer cell will soften up. In addition, I’ve got a image that if people don’t drink enough water, they can’t sublime magnetism of stress, and as a result of it wound cells and bring about factors of having cancer. I feel a lot of hot water and kelp help keep away cancer.

  • stubborn 頑固な
  • turn into A Aに変わる
  • lump 塊
  • remind oneself of A Aを思い出す
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • fundamental 根本的な
  • truth 真実
  • keep A alive Aを生かしておく
  • soften up 柔らかくなる
  • in addition 加えて
  • magnetism 磁気
  • wound 傷つける
  • bring about A Aを引き起こす
  • kelp 昆布
  • keep away A Aを遠ざける

Question 21:

There is a colleague in my office who suffers from depression. Though he goes to a hospital regularly and takes medicine, he gets no better. He has been absent from office without notice for the last month. He said he didn’t feel well especially these days but that he didn’t know the reason. His family members are away, so he can’t have any support from them. I think I should recommend him to hold memorial services for his ancestors like you say, but I’m not sure if he can do it or not. Do you have any good advice?

  • colleague 同僚
  • suffer from A Aに苦しむ
  • depression 鬱
  • regularly 定期的に
  • medicine 薬
  • get no better 少しも良くならない
  • absent 欠席して
  • notice 通知
  • especially 特に
  • these days 最近は
  • reason 理由
  • recommend 勧める


Many of the ancestors of such depressed people are suffering because they have had no memorial service held for them. Depression can’t be got rid of easily even if others take compassion on them. To be sure, most of them are not in such condition that they can hold the memorial service on their own, but if they can make their ancestors relieved, they are sure to be relieved themselves and get better in return.

  • have A pp Aを〜してもらう
  • get rid of A Aを取り除く
  • take compassion on A Aに同情する
  • to be sure 確かに
  • condition 状態
  • on one’s own 自分で
  • relieved 安心した
  • be sure to~ きっと〜するだろう
  • in return お返しに

You may as well recommend him to read my book or blog as the first step. If he can read them, he will get better little by little and be able to practice the memorial services.

  • may as well~ 〜した方がよいだろう
  • as the first step 第一歩として
  • little by little 少しずつ
  • practice 実践する

There are many cases that depressed people improved dramatically through the practice. But, if they find the service itself unfitted to them, they should stop it immediately and begin to look for something to feel grateful about in their daily lives.

  • improve 改善する
  • dramatically 劇的に
  • unfitted 合わない
  • immediately 直ちに
  • grateful  感謝している
  • daily life 日常生活
