Filial piety is the way to God. – PART 1


Filial piety, to love your parents, is the way to God. This is not a mere moral sense. It has a true practical spiritual power. If you rightly want Inner God to manifest itself and protect you, you must not go deep in the mountains to for Takigyo(滝行), to stand under a waterfall, nor pray for something to deities for example, because such deeds will only cause you to be possessed by wandering spirits unnecessarily.

  • filial piety 親孝行
  • mere 単なる
  • moral sense 道徳観念
  • practical 実践的な
  • Inner God 内在神
  • manifest oneself 顕現する
  • must not~ 〜してはいけない
  • pray  祈る
  • deity 神
  • deed 行い
  • cause A to~ Aが〜する原因になる
  • pessess 憑依する
  • wander 彷徨う

In the new age ahead, which can be called “the age of daytime” spiritually speaking, traditional spiritual practices will have the opposite effect to what was intended. Filial piety will be 100 times more powerful in spiritual power than such practices in that age. It is the time of resurgence of ordinary morals and the age that curious phenomena are to disappear is beginning.

  • daytime 昼間
  • traditional 伝統的な
  • the opposite effect 逆効果

The relationship between parent and child is apt to be the one causing mental conflicts because they are like each other. But they are connected with each other by a strong invisible bond no matter what. It doesn’t matter whether or not they are related by blood. Both good actions and bad ones you take toward someone who is closely related to you by some karma never fail to return to you.

  • relationship 人間関係
  • be apt to~ 〜しがちである

  • each other お互い

When I think of filial piety, I always remember a certain psychic. He exerted his extraordinary psychic power in this World of Reality from the early Showa Era to the 1940s. Unfortunately, a lot of new religious groups which worshiped him as their guru were founded and they all have been reduced to different ones at present.

  • certain ある
  • psychic 霊能者
  • exert 発揮する
  • religious group 宗教団体
  • worship 崇める
  • found 設立する
  • be reduced to A Aに成り果てる
  • at present 現在は

I don’t know him, Mr. M, personally nor do I know the teachings he left. He is the man only a few people know. But I still remember him because the spiritual current was huge which flowed into my mind on hearing his name.

  • personally 個人的には
  • teaching 教え
  • on ~ing 〜するとすぐに
  • current 流れ
  • flow into A Aに流れ込む

It is easy to have a spiritual vision about someone who is possessed by a spiritual being transmitting its messages of its own accord. Seeing him with my spiritual eyesight, I think Mr.M practiced filial piety very hard with a pure heart without taking any defiant attitude toward his stern parents, engaged in farming until he was in his mid-forties. I can see that his parents were very stern and formal.

  • spiritual vision 霊視
  • transmit 伝える
  • of one’s own accord 自分で
  • defiant 反抗的な
  • stern 厳しい
  • engaged 従事して
  • farming 農業
  • formal 堅苦しい

It seems that Mr.M practiced filial piety purely under such conditions and never neglected reverence to the gods and Buddha. One day, a spirit group, who had been watching over him, approved him and possessed him. Mr.M was the one who was possessed posteriori.

  • It seems that… …であるように思われる
  • neglect 怠る
  • reverence 崇敬
  • approve 認める
  • posteriori 後天的に

This spirit group belonged to a rare spiritual line. I know only a few people so far who are related to this kind of spirit group. This group is not bad at all. It exists in a spiritual dimension near the ground. It is a group composed of those spirits who live in a spiritual dimension in the underworld of the earth and one of the spiritual groups belonging to Shambala.

  • belong to A Aに属する
  • rare 珍しい
  • so far 今の所
  • dimension   次元
  • be composed of A Aから構成されている
  • underworld  地下世界

Since the group belonged to the world near this world, they could have exerted an extraordinary spiritual power in the World of Reality. The power of realizing what people wanted might be more than that of divine spirits.

  • divine 神の

By the way, the figures of spiritual beings living in this Shambala world are almost the same as the human beings. There is a certain feature common to all their faces. It is … TO BE CONTINUED.
