Something that hinders the actions of ancestral spirits.


Human beings try to pray for something at a Shinto shrine or a Buddhist temple or turn to a healer or a psychic. And if our wish happens to be realized, we attribute it to the spiritual means on which we spent a lot of money and time. This may be because we humans don’t want to think our acts were useless. But the truth is our own life energy and the protective actions by our ancestral spirits made it happen.

  • pray 祈る
  • turn to A Aに頼る
  • happen to~ たまたま〜する
  • realize 実現させる
  • means 手段
  • spend A on B AをBに費やす
  • useless 無駄な
  • the truth is 実は
  • life energy 生命エネルギー
  • protective 保護的な
  • action 作用

Human beings, committing a fallacy of the effects of a spiritual means, would  cease to trust their own efforts and seek for something outside themselves without paying attention to their ancestral spirits. Ancestral spirits who have already rested in peace watch over us all the time feeling love and affection as if we were their own children. Even if we don’t care about them, they try to give us love that asks nothing in return.

  • commit 犯す
  • fallacy 錯誤
  • cease to~ 〜しなくなる
  • trust 信頼する
  • pay attention to A Aに注意を払う
  • affection 愛情
  • as if S+V あたかもSがVするかのように
  • even if S+V たとえSがVするとしても
  • in return お返しに

Even in the world today, parents with children are working hard feeling the responsibility and love with no condition for their children whether or not thanked by them. Parents believe that their children will understand them when they grow up to be parents themselves.

  • responsibility 責任
  • with no condition 無条件の
  • whether or not S+V SがVしようがしまいが

We are liable to ascribe good things to spiritual beings outside and bad things to wandering ancestors. But the truth is different and is the contrary. The spiritual truth is spiritual beings who interfere from outside try to color you with a different color from your own. They try to color you with the color of the spirit world they belong to. Many people happily mistake for a good thing this odd feeling of being colored with the different color from their original one.

  • be liable to~ 〜しがちである
  • ascribe A to B AをBのせいにする
  • contrary 逆
  • interfere 干渉する
  • color 染める
  • mistake A for B  AをBと間違って捉える
  • odd 奇妙な

For humans, the spiritual color of their own is very important like your own blood. If you are colored with a different spiritual color in the course of your life, negative rejection is to appear later in many forms, such as your health or fortune. You and your ancestors have the same kind of color in common. If an offspring is colored with a different color because of the dependence on other spiritual beings outside, his/her ancestral spirits try to get rid of the spiritual dirt. It is not until they remove it that they can work to realize their offspring’s wish. Yes. If the offspring is free from the unnecessary spiritual dirt, the protection power of the ancestral spirits will work much faster.

  • blood 血液
  • rejection 拒絶反応
  • such as A Aのような
  • fortune 運気
  • in common 共通に
  • dependence 依存
  • get rid of A Aを除去する
  • dirt 垢
  • It is not until S’+V’ that S+V S’がV’して初めてSはVする
  • be free from A Aがない
  • unnecessary 不必要な

Dependant people are always doing spiritual acts which worsen their fortune and going a long way around placing a burden on their ancestral spirits. Some spiritual beings outside try to expel your ancestral spirits trying to protect you because the latter prevent the former from making you dependent and binding you up spiritually.

  • dependant 依存しがちな
  • worsen 悪化させる
  • go a long way around 回り道をする
  • burden 負担
  • expel 排除する
  • the latter 後者
  • prevent A from ~ing Aが〜するのを妨げる
  • bind A up Aを縛り上げる

There are many religious groups that make its believers carry out the wrong kind of memorial service or put a curse which weakens their ancestral spirits. Some make them throw away a Buddhist altar for ancestors. There are so many artful spiritual traps which is truly cunning in this world that you have to be careful.

  • religious group 宗教団体
  • carry out A Aを行う
  • weaken 弱らせる
  • throw away A Aを捨てる
  • artful 巧妙な
  • trap 罠
  • cunning 狡猾な
