Be careful with static eletcricity


Among my colleagues, there is a male employee whose parents carry out a big agricultural business on a farm. I hear that they grow rice mainly and vegetables, too. He sometimes gets emotionally exhausted from work and I have often been worried about him. But strange to say  he often gets totally refreshed mentally and physically after weekends. Though he has still a lot of things to do, he comes to the office refreshed. He not only looks better on the surface, but also his spiritual aura gets thicker.

Interested, I asked him how he spent his holidays. He said that he usually gets up early in the morning and messes about with the soil, fertilizing crops and pulling weeds and then idle the whole afternoon watching TV and taking a nap and that the more he is suffering mentally, the more he messes about with the soil.

I feel unnecessary static electricity goes off from my body when I touch plants or soil. Unnecessary static electricity accumulated in human bodies seems impurities with my spiritual eyes. In Shinto, a purification ceremony is performed with Haraegushi(祓串), a stick of a white tree with a branch of a plant called “Cleyera japonica”(榊)attaching to it. By cutting through the air with the stick, static electricity at the place is neutralized. The most powerful plant which can get rid of static electricity is perhaps a leaf of a hemp used to be used a long time ago.

I have heard that porters dwelling in a mountain who help climbers wear a copper wire on their wrist. Doing so makes a difference in the degree of exhaustion. It improves physical endurance. This is because the copper wire discharges the static electricity accustomed in the body.

People who get easily frustrated should wear clothes or an underwear made of natural material which doesn’t take on static electricity. If possible, they should avoid nylon material as bedclothes for their health. When I use a blanket of 100% nylon, I feel very tired on waking up. Be careful with nylon material which crackles. This static electricity gives stress to cells and may be one of the causes of cancer.
