The Way to the Mind of God

森羅万象第6巻 表紙

There have been a lot of ways or methods to seek for God since ancient times. But most of them are depending on a thing outside of yourself, not inside of your heart.

  • seek for A  Aを探し求める
  • ancient times 古代
  • depend 頼る

To search for God outside of yourself involves a lot of risks. You could end up spending a lot of time, energy and money over many years and when you look back on you life, you would regret what you did, thinking “Was this faith right?” It’s a shame that you realize what you did after spending so many precious years. You could learn a lesson from the experience, of course, but it’s still regrettable for you to realize it after wasting such precious things.

  • involve 伴う
  • end up ~ing 結局は〜するはめになる
  • look back on A  Aを振り返る
  • regret 後悔する
  • shame 残念なこと
  • regrettable 悲しむべき
  • waste 無駄にする

People who are in the middle of believing in something outside of themselves often say that they received benefits and they’re happy now. However, no matter how happy they are now, they don’t know what will become of them in the future, what will happen in the end. In short, you can’t be sure if your faith is right or wrong unless you spend a long time. This is like gambling. Will your faith lead you to God or Devil? Every religion will say only good things. After all, to search outside of yourself for God would is to gamble.

  • benefit 利益」
  • in the end 最終的には
  • in short 要するに
  • unless S+V SがVしない限り

Well, what is the faith leading to God without any risk? Seek for the way to Inner God inside yourself by tracing the spiritual cord of your ancestors. Inner God inside your heart leads to the Original God. If you do so, you’re sure to feel the true, great God in your heart instead of a personal god, when you will experience an absolute sense of security in the face of this World of Reality.

  • lead to A  Aに通じる
  • trace 辿る
  • ancestor 先祖
  • be sure to~  きっと〜する
  • instead of A   Aではなく
  • absolute 絶対的な
  • sense of security 安心感

As you continue holding thankful memorial services for your ancestors, the spiritual chord of your ancestors leading to God will be clearer and clearer, and you’ll find that your sense of security is different from what it used to be. Fortunate things to be thankful for will actually happen to you. It might be that you come to realize what you have been taking for granted is actually a fortune thing. But anyway you’ll begin to know what the true happiness is.

  • thankful   感謝の
  • fortunate 幸運な
  • come to~ 〜するようになる
  • take A for granted Aを当たり前と思う
  • anyway いずれにせよ

As you practice the thankful memorial services for your ancestors, you’ll come to sympathize with the holy spirit inside yourself and have a chance to visit a shrine where an outer god related to your Inner God resides for the purpose of offering gratitude. Interaction between you and God will begin.

  • sympathize 同調する
  • feel like ~ing 〜したい気がする
  • related 関係した
  • reside 住む
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • interaction 相互作用

Seek for Inner God inside yourself and offer gratitude to an outer god courteously. Holding memorial services for your ancestors is the safest and fastest way to reach God. By doing so, you can trace back to God with the use of the spiritual chord of your ancestors influencing you most.

  • courteously 丁重に
  • trace back to A Aに遡る
  • influence 影響する

This method comprises gratitude for being kept alive and the old spiritual essence of Yorishiro(寄り代)which has existed since ancient times. Yorishiro is an esoteric technique of ancient shinto and forms the basis of its secret rituals. In holding a memorial service for your ancestors, you are conjuring your ancestral spirits to the tanzaku(短冊), a strip of Japanese paper, or the memorial tablet. This method has a strong practical power because you’re making use of the spiritual cord of your family line which has a very strong influence on you. Recent occult methods are all infantile and can’t even compete with this one.

  • comprise 〜から成る
  • esoteric 秘儀の
  • ancient shinto 古神道
  • ritual 儀式
  • conjure 呼ぶ
  • memorial tablet 位牌
  • practical 実際的な
  • make use of A Aを利用する
  • infantile 幼稚な
  • compete 競合する

In holding this simple memorial service, if you should feel bad effects or be scared, just stop doing it. In case you are obsessed with a wrong notion or possessed with spiritual beings of the World of the Dead, you will experience discomfort due to your spiritual dirt. In such a case, just start with paying attention to ordinary things to be thankful for.

  • effect 影響
  • scared 怖い
  • be obsessed  with A  Aに取りつかれている
  • notion 観念
  • experience discomfort 違和感を感じる
  • dirt 垢

If you’ve made up your mind positively to hold memorial services to express your thanks to your ancestors, whether or not you experience discomfort in the process of your spiritual dirt being eliminated, keep on doing it at ease. You can also prepare yourself for the purification of the spiritual light of the sun in the years to come. Normally, you won’t feel any discomfort in holding it. Most of you will feel warm at heart. You don’t have to be worried or scared about.

  • make up one’s mind 決心する
  • express 表す
  • whether or not S+V SがVしようがしまいが
  • process 家庭
  • eliminate 取り除く
  • at ease 安心して
  • prepare 準備させる
  • purification 浄化

The spiritual light of the sun was intense today, too. Human beings will split into two: those who regain their youth and those who become mentally ill. They will do so regardless of their social status or where they live.

  • intense 強烈な
  • split 分かれる
  • regain 取り戻す
  • youth  若さ
  • mentally 精神的に
  • regardless of A Aに関係なく
