FAQ 3-4

Q3.

How long does it take for spiritual dirt to disappear? If I experience spiritual healing just once, does it become a sin which never disappears?

  • dirt 垢
  • disappear 消える
  • sin 罪

Answer.

As long as you hold memorial services for your ancestors with gratitude, remind yourself of gratitude in everyday lives, and keep away from any spiritual business, there’s no problem. You are in charge of  your inner god, too. Develop your conscience, and you’re OK. Also, to take a cup of tepid water with a tiny amount of sea salt in it many times a day would advance the purification of your physical body and spiritual one. You can change yourself mentally and physically as long as you live. This is a privilege of the World of Reality. In the other worlds, your state of the moment you die remains fixed.

Q4.

I decided to continue practicing memorial services for my ancestors even if I didn’t understand the reason well. It’s been a month since I started it. And I’m gonna carry it on. I had had gratitude for my ancestors before I started it, but the ritual with incense sticks doesn’t feel right somehow, and I always wonder if this is a right thing to do, or if I can truly make myself understood by the spirits. I cannot help feeling a little uneasy.

  • continue 続ける
  • even if S+V たとえSがVするとしても
  • ritual 儀式
  • incense stick 線香
  • wonder if S+V SはVするのかしらと思う
  • make oneself understood 自分のことを理解してもらう
  • cannot help ~ing 〜せざるをえない
  • a little uneasy 一抹の不安

Answer.

All you have to do is to offer incense sticks toward the Tanzaku(短冊, a kind of strip of paper)with gratitude in mind and leave the place. When you do it, you should use three incense sticks from the beginning. Your mind to try to help your ancestors, reversing at your subconsciousness, will help yourself after all. If you can continue the practice, it means your heart reaches your ancestral spirits. If not, you are sure to stop doing it. Believe what you’re doing.

  • All you have to do is ~ あなたは〜しさえすればよい
  • offer 捧げる
  • from the begining 始めから
  • reverse 反転する
  • subconsciousness 無意識
  • after all 結局は
  • mean 意味する
  • reach 届く
  • ancestral 先祖の
  • be sure to~ 必ず〜する
