maternal love protecting treasurable place


I’ve received a mail from one of my blog readers asking about a picture taken under the Torii(鳥居), a gateway at the entrance to a shrine, of Geku(外宮) of Ise Grand Shrine(伊勢神宮).

  • receive 受け取る
  • gateway 門
  • entrance 入り口
  • shrine 神社

It was a rare picture, which was taken when the reader invited his customers from overseas to Ise Grand Shrine. The picture of a few staff members and foreign customers was taken right under the Torii of Geku. The upper part of their bodies and space above were all covered with shower of light like a rainbow. It was a belt of too strong a light to see their faces.

Seeing this picture through my spiritual sight, I saw some ancient personal gods, a god taking on a human form, whose faces were foreign ones and hairs were all long. I felt existence of holy spirits having to do with ancient Christianity or Judaism. Those beings seem to have been giving off light of pleasure, sympathizing with spiritual waves of Geku. Replying to the reader to this effect, I received a mail from him saying the customers were all Jewish people and reverent believers and he understood what I said very well.

What I think of from this episode is potential possibility of Geku of Ise Grand Shrine. Geku is where a breath of the Original God beyond a particular religion or sect is going down. If a Christian who can communicate with a higher spirit of Christianity visited Geku, he/she would feel Christ. A Jewish who can communicate with the highest deity of Judaism would feel Yahwe at Geku, and a buddhist reaching a higher state of mind would feel the Buddhist nature,for there exists much higher spirituality at Geku leading to all religions.

I imagine that if leaders of all religions visited Geku, they would have no choice but to keep silent. They would think over religious conflicts because of “nostalgia” they must feel there with no reason, though they couldn’t declare any admission or acceptance of it, afraid of losing their positions.

Izogu(伊雑宮)of Ise Grand Shrine is the other holy place where a living holy spirit still exists. Compared with higher universality of Geku, I feel it a Japanese native spiritual being. While I can see Polaris through my spiritual vision at Geku on occasion, every time I visit Izogu, I can see an orange sun disk whose outer edge is waving . It is Amaterasuohomikami(天照太御神)who works in order to protect Japan entrusted with the holy place of Geku. This god, full of maternal love, is very dependable.

There are many Japanese people who , born and raised in Japan, talk about channeling, or mediumship, with western angels and a foreign religious faith. But none of them is connected with the spiritual entities related to angels. It’s no more than an illusion caused by the possession by wandering spirits as a result of them abusing spiritual worlds so that they can make money from its business.

We Japanese are now living in this spiritual magnetic field of Japan this time. In spite of the fact that you live in this holy magnetic field, if you had an illusion of angels with wings, you would end up in escape from reality. Now that we are living in Japan, it’s a big waste. Let’s live in the real world, shall we?
