Humans and Holy Spirits Have a Different View on Happy Marriage

森羅万象第6巻 表紙

I’m often asked by a reader if his or her betrothed is a right person. Asking me such a question means that the person, or those around them, must feel anxious about his/her marriage or have some problem to worry about.

  • betrothed 婚約者
  • anxious 心配な

As you hold memorial services for your ancestors in the right way, unnecessary magnetism you receive from spirits related to you decreases. So, when you make an important decision, things will go well somehow or when you decline to do something, you can make up your mind easily.

  • magnetism  磁気
  • related 関係した
  • decrease 減る
  • decision 決定
  • go well うまくいく
  • somehow どういうわけか
  • decline 断る

Also, you won’t feel any regret or have any doubt about the consequence of your decision. You’ll come to accept everything positively. As you hold thankful memorial services for your ancestors, everything you need will be given to you if it’s necessary.

  • regret 後悔
  • doubt 疑い
  • consequence 結果
  • come to~ ~するようになる

Everyone wishes for a happy marriage. Humans and holy spirits have quite different views on happiness. The sense of happiness will also be different from person to person. Some people make much of money or sexual relationship and others consideration for others or thought. A happy marriage depends on what you think happiness is.

  • wish for A  Aを望む
  • view 見解
  • from person to person 人によって
  • make much of A  Aを重要視する
  • relationship 関係
  • consideration 思いやり

Whatever you think about happiness, there’s one thing you have to remember: in this World of Reality, where physical bodies proceed to death everyday, everything is changing and so is what you think at first, no matter what you make much of and how much you make arrangements. So if you think too much of conditions before marriage, you’re likely to repent later.

  • proceed 進む
  • condition 条件
  • repent 後悔する

In the spirit world, deities of husband and wife often appear to be an old couple who have grey hair and very old. Why do they appear to be very old? There is a God’s will there. Most old couples have already lost desire for money or freedom of their physical bodies and take care of each other. There are no conditions or stratagems between them. In this sense, the best marriage partner may be the one you can live together with even if you’ve lost everything.

  • gray hair 白髪
  • snuggle up to A Aに寄り添う
  • desire 欲望
  • stratagem 駆け引き

Well, since you don’t know your betrothed well before marriage, it’s important for you to run a simulation dispassionately. For example, if he is much older than you, you have to imagine what your marriage life will be like in twenty years. If she has children, you have to think whether you can get along well with them.

  • dispassionately  冷静に
  • get along  やっていく

Also, you have to think about the relationship with the other’s parents or siblings. Or when he falls sick or loses his job, you have to ask yourself whether you’re determined to support him. If you can make up your mind to accept all these difficulties, you will feel less anxious about the marriage.

  • sibling 兄弟
  • fall sick 病気になる
  • be determined to~ 〜する決心をしている

As you can have gratitude for the present situations and feel happy for just being kept alive, you’ll come to be able to respect your marriage partner. You could forgive your disagreeable husband or nagging wife, couldn’t you?

  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • the present situations 現状
  • disagreeable 嫌な
  • nagging 口うるさい
