Once Your Mind Goes Out of Control, It’s Difficult to Stop It.

天津 神様

Once you begin to worry about the future, it’s likely that you cannot stop worrying and begin to suffer, though you haven’t been in any bad situation yet. Even in such a situation, you would manage to get over it. Time goes on with everything changing, like getting  new information, meeting new people or beginning to read this blog etc. Therefore, your state of mind you expected before will be different. The proverb “Fear is often worse than the danger itself” is true.  You may be most distressed before something bad happens to you.

  • manage to~ なんとか〜する

  • fear 恐怖

  • distressed 苦しい

When you become mentally ill, you will come to lose you cheerfulness in your expression. It’s important to look at your face in the mirror. Look inside yourself, not just looking at your appearance so that you can check your state of mind. Look at your eyes, and you know it. When you think “Oh, my face is awful today,” it’s important for you to try not to get angry or worried that day. Once human minds get out of control, they become difficult to control.

Mr. Munetada Kurozumi(黒住宗忠), a shintoist in Edo period, cherished and raised his Inner God and succeeded in turning it into Amaterasu-oho-mi-kami(天照太御神)while he was alive. He was always happy with a smile together with Amaterasu-oho-mi-kami. According to a famous anecdote about him,  every time he was said by an religious man “Your face is that of a stupid,” he was delighted thinking “Oh, my faith practice is doing well.” A relaxed facial expression raising no suspicion, not a serious one,  is the proof that the person’s mind is flexible. It’s very good as the proverb says “Soft methods often get the better of brute force.”

  • cherish 大事にする
  • raise 育てる
  • succeed in ~ing 〜することに成功する

  • suspicion 疑い
