Nurturing a Snake or a Fiend in Your Heart could Hurt Your Inner God

森羅万象第6巻 表紙

I’ve got a message from a reader of this blog like the following:

“I thought I had lived on my own, but in fact I was being kept alive. Those who think themselves to be great are foolish. Those who realize that they are foolish are wise. Those who want more, feeling they’re lacking, are likely to lose many, while those who give for others are likely to be given. Those who cherish themselves above all will behave selfishly, while those who know themselves can respect others. Those who has a standard of values outside themselves deny themselves easily, while those who accept themselves as they are can make their dreams come true easily. And of course, those thankful for anything are thanked by others.”

I think this message expresses truth very well.

  • wise 賢い
  • cherish 大事にする
  • standard 基準
  • values 価値観

Lives are difficult to manage and very interesting. You can’t take anything with you when you leave this World of Reality. It is sure that you will die alone without anything. As long as you lead your life clinging to money, things and other people, all of which you cannot take with you to the other world, you will fight each other, commit sins and mourn. Because of such fleeting things, it is possible that you use God or even lose your life. It is ideal that you can enjoy your life without clinging to these illusions, namely money, things and people.

  • alone 一人で
  • the other world あの世
  • commit 犯す
  • sin 罪
  • mourn 嘆く
  • fleeting 儚い
  • ideal 理想的な
  • namely すなわち

But there’s one thing you can take with you to the other world. It is the Inner God that you’ve received in trust. It is important how you nurtured your Inner God while you were alive. The feelings of anger or sadness hurt your Inner God.

  • nurture 育てる
  • feelings 感情

Spiritual bodies of human beings are strange. They can take the forms of creatures in this world, reflecting your state of mind. Feelings can be a habit. There are various kinds of habits of feelings such as anger, mourning, criticizing, escaping, grudge etc. If you’re always getting angry without controlling yourself, you’ll fall into a habit of getting angry. You couldn’t help getting angry at trifle things. When you’re angry, another you are observing your own situation and can feel comfortable about yielding yourself to anger as if you were possessed by something. Your spiritual body,when you’re in such a situation, often does have horns on the head.

  • creature 生き物
  • reflect 反映する
  • state 状態
  • habit 習慣
  • cannot help ~ing 〜せざるをえない
  • trifle 些細な
  • observe 観察する
  • comfortable 心地のよい
  • possess 憑依する
  • horn 角

Also, some people are good at remembering a trifle thing that happened a long time ago and burning with anger. They are being filled with anger because of the trifle thing no other people can understand. The spiritual body of such people takes the form of a snake then. They couldn’t control themselves.

  • burn 燃える
  • snake 蛇

You can form your habit of feelings by yourself as you like. In short, what kind of habit you form is on your own responsibility. Nurturing a snake or a fiend in your heart could hurt your Inner God. If you hurt your Inner God, your are sure to fall ill by the reflection. This is what you can prevent by efforts. The following words can form a good habit of feelings and make you healthy physically and mentally:

  • as you like 好きなように
  • in short 要するに
  • responsibility 責任
  • fiend 鬼
  • be sure to~   必ず〜する
  • prevent 防ぐ
