Having spiritual dirt is your responsibilty.


Today, the sky was clear and the spiritual light of the sun was reaching the earth together with electromagnetic wave. I had been feeling the intense purification by the sun since yesterday. I witnessed a couple of car accidents yesterday though I think they were just by accident. A lot of people may have had headache today with the sunlight being so intense. I think a lot of people seem to have been affected unconsciously.

According to a news program on TV I saw in the afternoon, a criminal was arrested who sold a bracelet which cost no more than 20000 yen for 500000 yen, pretending that it could improve blood flow. The man who bought it may have suffered from a chronic disease and bought it desperately.Human beings are frail and apt to turn to miracles when the progress of the modern medicine seems to be delayed. In this criminal case, it was lucky that the police could build a case thanks to the material evidence of a bracelet.

About 10 years ago, there was a time when multilevel marketing system of nutritional supplement, which was introduced from abroad, became popular. The more stocks a distributor replenishes, the more he/she can be promoted in the organization and gain back margins from the lower-level distributors. It is the catch phrase that distributors of a high rank can gain a huge amount of money, which is the back margin of the sales from the lower classes, without doing anything and lead an idle life. But the reality of this system is that most of the distributors cannot make money continuously because of various problems such as having to put in stock a large number of supplements which have the expiration date.

And there is another business getting popular in modern society these days—a healer training course. They abuse invisibility of the spiritual world and are expanding their business by running a fraudulent certificate system. In this business they don’t deal in commodities, so it is a slightly different from conventional multilevel marketing in a sense. They give a certificate of a spiritual healer, which is worthy only within the group,  to the participants in exchange for hundreds of thousands of yen.

Since there is no trade of articles, there is no loss in this business, and if any trouble happens to a participant, it is attributed to the participant’s imagination or misunderstanding. On the contrary, the accuser would be denounced and the discussion ended. It may be difficult to build a case from a legal aspect.

A crucial difference between the business of giving people a certificate of a healer in exchange for money and that of multilevel marketing system is that the former abuses the name of invisible God or universe. They make up a nonsense hierarchy and a theory of spirits and run a system which deprives the sick in suffer of their money. This kind of business often passes some dead man off as a guru and base all their theory and effects on the man. They pass all the buck of effects to the guru already dead and advertise. If some trouble occurs and they are accused, they put the blame on the guru and use sophistry to escape the responsibility.

It is regrettable that spiritual dirt is attached on the old who are in suffer and ignorant of the spiritual truth and are urged to join such a group by his/her grandchild or relatives.

It is your responsibility in the future ahead to have spiritual dirt all over your body, whatever reason you have.The spiritual light from the sun affects the whole human beings. The true memorial service is just to devote gratitude in normal language to your ancestral spirits for your being kept alive without expecting any recompense. Scriptures or incantations which don’t make any sense are in the way. Pay psychics are not only unnecessary but also cause you spiritual dirt. It needs no reason for offspring to comfort their parents. There is something understandable between parents and children. You don’t need to ask someone else to hold a memorial service for your parents in your place.

Recent business depression seems to foment this new kind of pyramid scheme. Those who avoid working honestly arm themselves with knowledge of spiritualism, join the business and teach a strained interpretation of  the spiritual world. Surprisingly, I hear the remnants of sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway participate in the business, too. Such money-making business groups seem to get stronger  from now on. We need to sound the alarm. There’s no other way to reduce and get rid of your spiritual dirt outside of a memorial service for your ancestors held by you.
