The World of Reality is a distinctive dimension where a man’s true character is tried.

There are good times and bad times in life, but they are all gifts. That you were born here in this world is a result of your soul having made a choice and wanted to be born. Though we human beings were born after approving of various kinds of challenges and struggles in life, we are apt to be troubled and tormented as soon as we were born, thinking “I was not born because I wanted.”

  • gift 贈り物
  • result 結果
  • make a choice 選択を行なう
  • though S+V SはVするけれども
  • approve of A Aを是認する
  • challenge 課題
  • struggle 苦闘
  • be apt to~ 〜しがちである
  • troubled 悩む
  • tormented 苦しむ
  • as soon as S+V SがVするやいなや

The World of Reality is a distinctive dimension where the nature of a human soul is tried. You can think and do anything you want in this world. Your life itself is a gift in essence, which means you could enjoy your life with a grateful heart whatever happens.

  • dimension 次元
  • nature 本性
  • in essence 本質的に
  • mean 意味する
  • grateful 感謝に満ちた
  • whatever~ 何が〜しても

There is a law that if you forget the major premise that you should be grateful for a gift called life, a source of discontent and troubles never cease. Why on earth do I make much account of holding a memorial service for ancestors and related spirits? Because its purpose is for each of us to realize our own inner god entrusted by God and live our lives, full of good and bad,  to the last with a substantial sense of security .

  • law 法則
  • major premise 大前提
  • source 源
  • discontent 不満
  • cease 終わる
  • on earth いったい
  • make much account of A Aを重視する
  • memorial service 供養
  • ancestor 先祖
  • related 関係した
  • purpose 目的
  • realize 気がつく
  • inner god 内在神
  • entrust 任せる
  • to the last 最後まで
  • substantial 大きな
  • sense of security 安心感 

This is easy to say in theory, but it is difficult to feel secure in this world with your ancestors or related spirits giving off wave motions of agony. Even if you’re told that you are entrusted with a god in your heart, such a talk may be an empty theory  with your mind full of troubles and anxieties. The purpose of a memorial service with gratitude is not for you just to live this short life easily by lessening your spiritual handicaps but to become aware of your inner god and gain an eternal sense of security by doing so.

  • in theory 理論的には
  • feel secure 安心した心境になる
  • go off A Aを出す
  • wave motion 波動
  • agony 苦しみ
  • even if S+V たとえSがVするとしても
  • entrust A with B AにBを任せる
  • empty theory 机上の空論
  • anxiety 不安
  • lessen 小さくする
  • become aware of A Aに気がつく
  • eternal 永遠の

To live  with gratitude for everything, feeling a sense of unity with your inner god, or conscience—this is the state of Kannagara(カンナガラ). If you are in such a state, you will come to lead your life reflecting God’s will naturally. This world would be easy for you to live in.

  • sense of unity 一体感
  • conscience 良心
  • state 状態
  • come to~ 〜するようになる
  • reflect 反映する
  • will 意志

I Ka Shi Te I Ta Da I Te  A Ri Ga To U Go Za I Ma Su
