“I’d Rather Do What I Have to Do Myself Than Use Gods”


I hear that when a Japanese author Soseki Netsuke(夏目漱石) went to the U.K. to study more than a hundred years ago, the town was so full of exhaust gas that his clothes tuned black. It was around the time the Industrial Revolution was at its height.

  • exhaust gas 排気ガス
  • the Industrial Revolution 産業革命
  • be at one’s height 最盛期である

Soseki was concerned that Japan would also follow the same road in the future. I feel that he saw a vision of what Japan would be like. He was like a spiritual medium when young though he was mentally unstable. I feel he was suffering from being so for some time past. This experience, however, helped him to improve his sensitivity to literature in later years.

  • concerned 危惧して
  • unstable 不安定な
  • help A to~ Aが〜するのを助ける
  • improve 改善する
  • sensitivity 感性
  • literature 文学

Seeing Ougai Mori(森鴎外), an old master of Japanese literature, I feel a holy, high-leveled spirit of Taoism. He must’ve been a very generous person. Though Soseki was also great in terms of spiritually, I feel Ougai was much greater.

  • Taoism 道教
  • generous 寛大な
  • in terms of A  Aの観点から

As long as your spiritual magnetism is unstable, like Soseki in his youth, you’ll be mentally unstable and get irritated easily when the magnetism of other spiritual beings affects yours.

  • as long as S+V SがVする限り
  • magnetism 磁気
  • affect 影響する

So, if you put a talisman or a spiritual product in your child’s room in order that the child can pass an entrance exam, for example, the child will be affected by their spiritual magnetism. The child will find it hard to concentrate feeling sleepy and cease to study. This is due to your wrong faith of asking gods for what you want. The thought of trying to use gods to improve your child’s grade is absolutely wrong.

  • talisman お札
  • entrance exam 入試
  • concentrate 集中する
  • cease to~ 〜しなくなる
  • be due to A  Aが原因である
  • grade 成績
  • absolutely 絶対に

The faith of trying to use holy spirits has been prevailing in this country for centuries. It is fearful not to know the spiritual truth. If you come to sympathize with true God, you will think “I’m afraid to use God. I’d rather do what I have to do myself than use God.”

  • prevail 蔓延する
  • fearful 恐ろしい
  • sympathize 感応する
  • be afraid to~ 怖くて〜することができない
  • would rather~ むしろ〜したいと思う

People today would think ” I don’t know the spiritual truth because nobody told me.” But this way of thinking is wrong. There used to be a lot of people who led a respectable life and offered only gratitude to gods by their own self sensitivity without being taught by others. Such an idea as trying to use gods or asking them for something wouldn’t come up from them.

  • there used to be A 以前はAがいた
  • respectable 立派な

In the modern world, there are a lot of fee-chagring psychics or gurus who preach God’s teaching but cannot sympathize with God. They don’t believe in God in fact and are profane in the true sense of the word. It is because they don’t believe in God that they can make money by doing spiritual business cheating people not familiar with spiritual things.

  • fee-charging 有料の
  • psychic 霊能者
  • preach 説教する
  • profane 不信心な
  • cheat 騙す
  • familiar with A  Aをよく知っている

They may think that what they’re doing is a good thing. But in fact, they are disordering and contaminating pure spiritual magnetism of others in exchange for money. People coming to see such pay-charging psychics are mistaking the feeling of wrongness as good due to their ignorance of spiritual truth. Susan(スサノオ)hints to me that those who try to depend on such people are also to blame.

  • disorder 撹乱させる
  • contaminate 汚染する
  • in exchange for A  Aと引き換えに
  • feeling of wrongness 違和感
  • mistake A as B AをBと間違える
  • due to A Aのために
  • ignorance 無知
  • hint ほのめかす
  • depend 頼る
  • be to blame 責められるべき

Electromagnetic waves from the sun will be more and more intense. It’s important that you hold memorial services for your ancestors with gratitude to decrease the spiritual magnetism of your lost ancestral spirits and keep away from the spiritual magnetism different from your own. Whether you do this or not will decide your destiny.

  • electromagnetic wave 電磁波
  • intense 強烈な
  • keep away from A Aに近づかないでおく
  • destiny 運命
