There are various kinds of people living in this world. Part 1

廃墟の中の鳥居

A president of our client companies, to whom I owed a lot for many years, wound up his company and retired. He said that he had planned to quit his job at the age of sixty and live a slower-paced life managing the apartment he owned near his house.

  • president 社長
  • owe 負っている
  • wind up A Aを整理する
  • retire 引退する

Every time I go near his office on business, I drop in on him even now. When I visit him, he serves me a cup of coffee and some snacks and confections and when he lacks them, he goes out to buy them, which makes me feel obliged. He is really a good man full of kindness.

  • every time S+V SがVする度に
  • drop in on A Aに立ち寄る
  • confection お菓子
  • lack 欠く
  • feel obliged 恐縮する

When I saw him the other day, he looked a little bit tired. I asked why. According to him, he asked a building firm to repair his apartment in the previous summer, and a carpenter and a man who was in charge of the disposal of waste materials came to work on the repairment. The ex-president was so kind that he brought them some snacks and confections during the break.

  • the other day 先日
  • repair 修理する
  • previous 前の
  • in charge of A Aの責任がある
  • disposal 廃棄

Talking with them during the break, he found that the man in his fifties who was in charge of the disposal of waste materials had no fixed place to live in and could only do a part time job due to the lack of a driver’s license. Feeling sorry about him, the ex-president offered him a job of taking care of the garbage disposal and the maintenance of the apartment on holidays on condition that he must have his guarantor. And if he could do that, he would offer him a room for free, he said.

  • part time job アルバイト
  • due to A Aのために
  • offer 提供する
  • maintenance 維持
  • on condition that … …という条件で
  • guarantor 保証人

A couple of days later, the man brought a woman in her fifties with him as the guarantor, who was the wife of the president of the company the man used to work for. After moving in, he did the job a couple of times on holidays at first, but after a while he ceased to work at all.  And to the ex-president’s annoyance, women living in his apartment began to cancel their contracts and leave the apartment one after another. Asking the women the reason, he found out that the man always tried to speak to them persistently when he met them in the corridor and stalked them. They said that they couldn’t stand it anymore and were scared at him.

  • used to ~ 以前〜していた
  • cease to~ 〜するのをやめる
  • annoyance 悩み
  • contract 契約
  • one after another 次から次へと
  • persistently しつこく
  • corridor 階段
  • stand 我慢する
  • scared 怖がった

The ex-president got angry and went to the room of the man, but the man wouldn’t come out pretending not to be at home. Opening the door with a duplicate key, he found that the room was filled with electric appliances and furniture he picked up at a garbage area. At present, the ex-president has been persuading the man to leave the room.

  • pretend to~ ~するふりをする
  • duplicate key 合鍵
  • electric appliance 電化製品
  • persuade A to~  Aに〜するよう説得する

I have seen the man two times last year. First time I saw him, he was working at a warehouse of the ex-president. The moment I saw him, I got such a spiritually bad impression from him that I still remember the scene very well. The second time, I saw him walking with a middle-aged woman in a gay dress. The man is a very small, skinny guy and about 150cm tall. His hair comes down to his shoulders and is dyed gold. He was in colorful clothes then. He has thin lips and the edges of his mouth are raised a little. He appears to be always chuckling grimly.

  • warehouse 倉庫
  • the moment S+V SがVするやいなや
  • impression 印象
  • gay 派手な
  • skinny 痩せた
  • dye 染める
  • grimly 気味悪く

The vibration I perceived from him when I saw him was that of Gakikai(餓鬼界), or the World of Hungry Spirits. Such a man being very rare, I gazed at him well and got a vision of a hungry ghost just like the one described in Gakizoushi(餓鬼草紙), a picture scroll which describes aspects of ghosts who suffer from hunger and thirst and haunt the world of human beings.

  • vibration 波動
  • picture roll 絵巻
  • describe 描く
  • aspect 側面
  • haunt 出没する

I felt then that he was not possessed with a hungry ghost but a reincarnated hungry ghost itself. This hungry ghost, made of his spiritual body, had a imbalanced, big penis compared with his body unlike the one in the picture roll. I felt that he was so spiritual a man in a sense that he was incomparable with pay psychics in this world.

  • be possessed with A Aに憑依されている
  • reincarnated A Aの生まれ変わり
  • imbalanced 不釣り合いな
  • incomparable 比較できない

Looking back, the ex-president was regretting accommodating the man as if he had been charmed. This World of Reality is where various kinds of spirits from high to low dimensions transmigrate like a melting pot. So you have to be careful to survive. I etched my energy of gratitude into the space of his office for fear that the ex-president shouldn’t be stabbed by him due to the trouble of making him quit the place.

  • regret 後悔する
  • accomodate 受け入れる
  • charm 魔法にかける
  • transmigrate 転生する
  • etch 刻む
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • for fear that S+V SがVするといけないので

生かして頂いて 有り難う御座位ます
