Those Who Control Their Words can be Free


There has been a strong relation since a long time ago between art, such as playing a musical instrument or performing a dance, and the spirit world. According to Japanese myths, Amaterasu-oho-mi-kami(天照太御神)was able to get out of Amano-iwa-to(天の岩戸) where she was hiding herself, thanks to the laughters of gods that saw Ameno-uzume(アメノウズメ)dancing and the rhythm of their claps.

  • laughter 笑い声

I feel this story suggests a great secret technique that a lot of laughters and rhythm(= a beautiful wave length=music=words=the spirit of words) enable your Inner God to appear from deep inside you. Gurdjieff, a Russian of supernatural idea, also found out a key to awake the human beings in the music and dance of the ancient Sufism and had his disciplines practice them.

Art by musical instrumentalists or professional dancers becomes more and more beautiful as they add their inner world to it as well as their techniques. The facial expressions of artists also reflect the beauty of their mind. Artists whose face reflects their beautiful mind are great whether they are famous or not. Faces are important for artists.

The words human beings speak contain spiritual magnetism. If you speak bad language to others, abusive language to yourself or obscenities, you will attract evil spirits corresponding to the contents of the words. Such people as is always using bad languages or emitting negative energy will be wound by evil spiritual beings before they know. Fortunate things will never happen to such people.

  • contain 含む
  • magnetism 磁気
  • abusive language 悪口
  • obscenity 卑猥な言葉
  • end up ~ing 〜するはめになる
  • attract 引きつける
  • correspond 一致する
  • wind 巻きつく
  • fortunate 幸運な

On the other hand, such people as speak words that please, encourage or console others will be covered with positive spiritual magnetism corresponding to the contents of the words. Such people will come to lead a peaceful life.

  • on the other hand 一方
  • please 喜ばせる
  • encourage 励ます
  • console 慰める

By the way, Oto-hime(乙姫), appearing in the ancient story Urashima-Taro(浦島太郎), is said to have possessed huge worldly treasure, which Urashima-Taro witnessed. In shinto sects, it has often been said since a long time ago that Oto-hime equals a person who keeps “sound” inside. This suggests that those who control language, or the spirit of words, can be free in this world.

  • possess 所有する
  • treasure 宝物
  • witness 目撃する

You may not understand well the meaning of the spirt of words quite well. But this means that the words which human beings with Inner God inside them speak are very important. It’s very good thing to do for your destiny to reflect on what words you speak every day.
