Filial piety is the way to God. – Part 2


The nose on these spiritual men’s face looked irregularly big. They look just like Tengu(天狗), a long-nosed goblin. But they are slightly different from Tengu of a natural spirit. Their bodies are like those of humans. In that sense, they may be more advanced beings than Tengu.

  • irregularly 異常に
  • advanced 進化した

As is often the case with all spiritual beings of the line of Tengu, they look like a luminous body flying in the air when they move in the World of Reality. They are often described as UFO. A single luminous body which is witnessed by people and changes its body are often the spiritual body of Tengu.

  • as is often the case with A Aにはよくあることだが
  • luminous body 発光体
  • describe A as B AをBと述べる
  • witness 目撃する

When Mr.M, a psychic, was possessed by them in his forties, he suddenly vomited a large amount of blood, enough to fill a washbowl, and almost died. After he recovered, he found himself having a supernatural power. Human blood plays the important spiritual role of connecting a physical body to a spiritual one. He seems to have had his blood changed into spiritual blood by the spirit group. There have been incidents where UFO extracts blood from animals in foreign countries. A lot of mysterious things concerning blood are often caused by spiritual beings in the lower dimension of the World of the Dead. His case is different from this in dimension, though.

  • possess 憑依する
  • suddenly 突然
  • vomit 吐く
  • washbowl 桶
  • recover 回復する
  • supernatural power 神通力
  • play a role 役割を果たす
  • connect A to B AをBと繋ぐ
  • physical 肉体的な
  • seem to have pp 〜したように思われる
  • incident 事件
  • extract 抜き取る
  • dimension 次元

Mr.M was assigned by the spirit group near the World of Reality to realize people’s personal wish. The group is one of the marginal groups belonging to the righteous God, so there is no problem with that. But, generally speaking, when a miracle happens to people, there will be “an exchange of values” that they have to lose something in return. You have to remember that life is completely fair.

  • assign A to~ Aに〜する任務を与える
  • marginal 末端の
  • generally speaking  一般的に言えば
  • in return for A Aと引き換えに
  • completely 完全に
  • fair 公平な

Mr.M’s sayings and actions were often excessive. I think, actually, his face and appearance looked like that of a big Tengu. One of my old acquaintances I’m much obliged to has once met Mr.M. When he was dying from fever as a child, his parents asked Mr. M to pray for his recovery and he was saved. He visited Mr.M before entering a medical school to say a word of thanks to him. Mr. M said to the acquaintance of mine “God stands by you,” and favored him and invited him to stay with him for about a week. What he witnessed during the stay was all surprising.

  • excessive 過度な
  • apearance 姿
  • acquaintance 知人
  • be obliged to A Aにお世話になる
  • fever 熱
  • medical school 医学部
  • stand by A Aのそばに立つ
  • favor 気に入る
  • invite A to~ Aに〜するよう招く
  • surprising 驚くべき

He saw with his own eyes Mr.M get rid of the chronic pain of a visitor by nodding just once, and cure a physically handicapped person having trouble in arms and legs in a moment. A lot of people visited Mr. M from all over Japan from morning till night.

  • get rid of A Aをなくす
  • chronic 慢性の
  • pain 痛み
  • nod うなずく
  • cure 治す

What surprised him most was like this; when he and Mr.M went out into the garden, they saw a transport airplane of the U.S. Occupation Army flying over a nearby mountain. Mr.M told him to see the plane so that he could see the scene of him getting it down. Mr.M put his arm toward the plane and shouted at it and then it went down abruptly. Just before it crashed into the mountain, Mr. M lowered his arm and the plane went up again. Mr. M showed various miraculous phenomena to him.

  • transport airplane 輸送飛行機
  • occupation army 占領軍
  • so that S+V SがVするように
  • abruptly 突然に
  • lower 下げる
  • various 様々な
  • phenomena 現象

Well, the age Mr.M lived was the time when the World of the Dead in the early Showa Era was most powerful. I feel that the reason he showed a number of miracles and mysterious things to people was to make them believe his sayings. I feel what he wanted to say to people was like this: The nearest way to feel happy in this world is

1. to be devoted to your parents as long as they are alive and if they are gone, to hold memorial services for them with a will

2. to worship the Sun

What he wanted to say most was the former.

  • Showa Era 昭和
  • a number of A 数多くのA
  • the nearest way 近道
  • devoted 献身的な
  • as long as S+V SがVする限り
  • be gone いない
  • with a will 熱心に

In recent years, the number of murder cases between parent and child has been increasing. In some cases,  a parent and his/her child in this world killed each other in the previous life. They chose the relationship of parent and child by consent which would cause mental conflict in order to pay the huge debt (karma) at a time, but they were defeated by the karma and added to it.

  • in recent years 近年
  • murder 殺人
  • increase 増える
  • previous 以前の
  • relationship 関係
  • by consent 同意して
  • mental conflict 心の葛藤
  • in order to~ 〜するために
  • debt 負債
  • defeat 打ち負かす
  • add to A Aを増す

Some people say that their parents ask too much of them. It is better to do what they can do, to be sure, because there is no one but has requested too much of his parents as a child, right?  Those who could practice filial piety but didn’t will surely regret later when their parents pass away. Those who cannot so much as regret over the death will have their life go toward the same circumstances as their parent’s life.

  • ask A of B  AをBに求める
  • It is better to~ 〜したほうが良い
  • There is no one but~ 〜しない人はいない
  • regret 後悔する
  • pass away 亡くなる
  • the same A as B Bと同じA
