You can be Positive without Unnecessary, Obstructive Magnetism

As economic conditions get worse, more and more women face a predicament. Socially vulnerable people are affected first. As for companies, women are more likely to encounter restructuring than men. I think, from my social experiences, that women are more diligent than men. If I compare ten female employees with ten male ones, I think there is one outstanding man among them. But on average, ten women seem to achieve better performance than ten men.

  • predicament 苦境
  • vulnerable 弱い
  • affect 影響する
  • encounter 遭遇する
  • on average 平均では
  • achieve 成し遂げる

If I were a manager, I would employ women, as permanent employees, and aged men receiving a pension who are honest and humble. By doing so, I could build a strong, ideal organization in terms of hiring expenses, retirement money, problems of sexual relations between male and female employees and so on. In the present imbalanced society, organizations of this kind could contribute to society, depending on the type of occupation though.  Every year will be crucial even for big companies. Companies’ prospects ten or twenty years from now are more and more likely to fail.

  • employ 雇う
  • permanent employee 正社員
  • pension 年金
  • honest 正直な
  • humble 謙虚な
  • ideal 理想的な
  • expense 費用
  • imbalanced いびつな
  • prospect 見込み
  • fail 外れる

Especially, housewives with children would be subject to economic trend. If their husband is uncooperative when it comes to a family matter, they will suffer triple distress economically, mentally and physically, taking care of their children like treasure. As they have no way out, such pressure on women must be heavy. This is really the Gurdjieff work. If they can get over it, they will have a face like that of Kannon in later years.

  • uncooperative 非協力的な
  • distress 苦しみ
  • way out 逃げ場

If you’re a housewife with children, you have to think about your children’s safety and life first. Your husband can wait. If your husband should abuse you, you have to think about where to escape all the time and save money secretly so that you and your children can live. In the middle period of Showa era, households were under a harsh condition in general. For example, the mother of Beat Takeshi, a famous Japanese comedian, brought up her children to be good men with her often struggling with her husband, whose salary was small. I hear the children are thinking that their mother has made them what they are and they didn’t need their father. The couple, however, lived until the end of their lives. I imagine that when he passed away, she must have shed tears that only that married couple know who have been together for a long time.

  • abuse 虐待する
  • harsh 過酷な
  • struggle 喧嘩をする
  • tear 涙

However hard your family life is, you don’t need to worry about anything as long as your mind is stable. Time passes even if you stumble. Everything will turn into good memories, definitely. For your mind to be stable, unnecessary spiritual magnetism is obstructive. You have only to decrease the spiritual magnetism related to you, holding memorial services for your ancestors constantly and look on your present tough situations calmly, never looking away from them. You can be positive without unnecessary, obstructive magnetism.

  • stable 安定して
  • definately 必ず
  • obstructive 邪魔な
  • look on A   Aを静観する
  • positive 積極的な

This world is essentially where various misfortunes and sad things happen. It is no use trying to avoid them. If a misfortune happens to you, it’s important that you smile at it, watch it calmly and have the mind to try to dissolve it. If you can laugh at it despite its harshness, I’m sure you can get over it. The present journey of your soul, or your life, will end in big success. This is because the best pressure makes you grow mentally.

  • misfortune 不運
  • avoid 避ける
  • dissolve 溶かす
  • despite 〜にもかかわらず

In This World, You’re Supposed to Encounter Stressful Things One After Another

Some who didn’t like children have three beautiful children and others who liked children and wanted to have one cannot have any. Life is so strange.

  • strange 奇妙な

The same thing may be said about money, too. Taking a look spiritually at those who have made a huge amount of money on the stock market or by investments, I can see that many of them would say “I don’t need money,” or ” Money’s nothing.” In fact, those who treasure money are likely to miss a chance of investment. If such people start investing for money, they will fail. It seems that desire and its consequence are in inverse proportion to each other.

  • stock 株
  • investment 投資
  • think much of A Aを重要視する
  • treasure 大事にする
  • consequence 結果
  • inverse proportion 反比例

Many rich people, however, seem unhappy in their family life. I hear that many of the legendary gamblers, who were very successful in investment by developing a revolutionary method, went bankrupt before they died. This world is where you cannot have your own way in everything, after all. As soon as you’re satisfied with your income or material aspects of life, for example, it often happens that your health problems occur. There seems to be a law in this World of Reality that you encounter something stressful one after another.

  • legendary 伝説的な
  • revolutionary 革命的な
  • go bankrupt 破産する
  • occur 起こる
  • encounter 遭遇する

There is one way to stop stressful things like these from happening in your life – to be thankful for your present situations. And to keep on being thankful, you have only to offer gratitude to your ancestors. As you hold memorial services for your ancestors, who have passed the baton called life since ancient times, you’ll come to generate magnetism of gratitude, thinking “I’m still happy even with this present situations.” By doing this, you can escape from the interference of the moon, which generates the counter-rotating magnetism that prevents human beings from developing.

  • thankful 感謝して
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • generate 生み出す
  • magnetism 磁気
  • interference 干渉
  • counter-rotating 逆回転の

If you want your children, all you have to do is be thankful for your present married life. If you lead your life with this attitude, you’ll find you’re pregnant suddenly one day. If you don’t have any gratitude nor thoughtfulness to your husband or wife, just thinking “I want my children!, ” a baby angel, seeing you, would worry and avoid you. The baby angel would think “If I were born into their family, what would they begin to want or worry about next?”

  • married life 結婚生活
  • attitude 考え方
  • pregnant 妊娠して
  • suddenly 突然
  • avoid 避ける

Around those who live their life accepting their present situations and generating the magnetism of gratitude, will spirits with the same kind of magnetism gather. It is not difficult for spirits living in invisible worlds to grant and give you money, which is empty after all. But they can do nothing for you to be thankful.

  • accept 受け入れる
  • gather 集まる
  • grant 授ける
  • empty 虚しい

Being thankful to the present situations emits really noble magnetism to the World of Reality. You don’t know how many spirits make sacrifices to make you generate this magnetism, which may be the best present for the being who made this world come into existence.

  • emit 放つ
  • noble 尊い
  • sacrifice 犠牲
  • come into existence 出現する

The Act of Giving Makes the Karma of Being Given

The times when I was a junior and a high school student were the most painful years in my life. I was suffering from general malaise of unknown origin. In part, this may have been because I became tall rapidly during the six years, but anyway I would often have dizziness and a palpitation of the heart. I went to hospital for checkup many times, but the doctor, failing to determine the cause, told me that it was OK because I was just at puberty.

  • painful 苦しい
  • general malaise 不定愁訴
  • unknown origin 原因不明
  • dizziness 目眩
  • palpitation 動悸
  • puberty 思春期

At that time, I was thinking that this was because I tuned in to various spiritual beings like a sophisticated radio, for I have been spiritually sensitive since I was a little child. But I didn’t know what to do then. I felt like my life energy was sucked by something. I was pale all the time. To relieve this pain, I read a lot of books on religions and supernatural ideas of all times and places in search of a practical method. I tried many ones by myself.

  • tune in to A Aに波長が合う
  • sophisticated 高度な
  • sensitive 敏感な
  • suck 吸う
  • relieve 和らげる
  • supernatural idea 神秘思想

When I entered a university, I got a driver’s license and I often visited shrines and Buddhist temples by bike mainly in Kinki Region. Also, I would consider Yorishiro(寄り代), which I perceived was the secret principle of spiritualism, and experiment on it many times.  Besides, I happened to meet various religious gurus due to strange karma, and practiced a lot of spiritual methods. However, I was still suffering from general malaise. I couldn’t find anything that made me convinced of my thoughts on spiritual things I had felt since I was born, nor any practical method for improvement. All I tried were just a play of spiritual possession on the surface of my consciousness and led to a system for money set up by wicked spirits.

  • region 地方
  • perceive 知覚する
  • experiment 実験する
  • besides さらに
  • convinced 確信して
  • improvement 改善
  • possession 憑依
  • surface 表面
  • wicked 邪悪な

After all, it solved my general malaise worshiping the holy spirit with the words “I Ka Shi Te I Ta Da I Te  A Ri Ga To U Go Za I Ma Su,” which I received spiritually at Geku(外宮) of Ise Grand Shrine(伊勢神宮), enshrining Shinsatsu(神札), a kind of talisman, in the household shinto alter in my house and holding thankful memorial services for my ancestors. I could be mentally stable and physically stronger especially after I began to offer gratitude and three incense sticks to my ancestral spirits. Also, I came to be rich enough without hoping for money. Above all, it was the stability of mind that made me happy .

  • solve 解決する
  • enshrine 祭る
  • ancestor 先祖
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • incense stick 線香

As long as you’re mentally unstable, you’ll come to dislike your life. The instability of mind could lead to death. Conventional religions can only give you a sense of security by making you dependent on them. But this sense is a fake one which will vanish sooner or later. Now I understand that my suffering during the six years of my school days was given me on purpose by a certain holy spirit so that I could be led to learn spiritual things and that my soul, which had been in a world far away from this world before I was born, could tune in to this world.

  • dislike 嫌う
  • lead to A Aをもたらす
  • conventional 従来の
  • security 安心
  • fake 偽の
  • vanish 消える
  • on purpose わざと

If you want to be loved, you have to love others. In this World of Reality, there is a law that you can never get what you want without giving anything. This is why I haven’t emphasized the effects of holding memorial services for ancestors. If you hold a memorial service for the purpose of getting something, the practice will have the opposite effect. If you do it for you, not for your ancestors, nothing good will happen and your practice will turn out to be disappointing.

  • law 法則
  • emphasize 強調する
  • opposite 逆の
  • disappointing がっかりさせるような

It not until you have the desire to help your ancestors and console and heal gods, no matter how little, that you can get help from gods and spirits. Giving your gratitude to gods and spirits related to you makes the karma of being given something, while worshiping gods with the hope of getting something will result in losing something precious. The faith of giving your gratitude causes you to be given something without having to hoping for it. The difference between these attitudes is very big.

  • desire 願望
  • related 関係した
  • result in A  Aという結果になる
  • precious 貴重な
  • faith 信仰
  • attitude 考え方

The More Growth Rings You Have in Your Heart, The Tougher You Grows.

I have often gone out to a deep forest on holidays since last year. My house is in the country of a provincial town. Driving for an hour from where I live takes me to unspoiled nature, where I take pictures of it, for I feel like taking pictures of the present nature and keeping them for good. I take a picture from various angles as I like.

  • provincial 地方の
  • unspoiled 手付かずの
  • feel like ~ing 〜したい気がする
  • present 現在の
  • angle 角度

I went out yesterday with a friend of mine who was familiar with cameras. Taking pictures is not my hobby, so I don’t know anything about the latest AF single-lens reflex cameras with a lot of functions. So I learned from him how to take a picture of moving clear streams and illuminance adjustment.

  • familiar 詳しい
  • AF single-lens reflex camera 一眼レフ

Ridge lines of winter mountains without foliage are clear, so it’s easy to see landforms with mountains. I could keep seeing the view without getting bored. Indeed, there are few bald, barren mountains in Japan. There a lot of foreign countries where there are only barren mountains even if they are of the same latitude as Japan. I feel that the amount of trees propagating themselves is proportional to the number of nature spirits living there. It’s easy for trees and plants to thrive in Japan even when they’re left alone, which has to do with the spirituality the ground of Japan has. In the human body, for example, hairs grow up at important warm spots where a lot of capillary vessels are concentrated, such as a head, armpits and sexual organs. A lot of trees growing up naturally in Japan means that the ground is alive and active. We are living on such a big living thing.

  • ridge line 稜線
  • foliage 葉
  • landform 地形
  • get bored 飽きる
  • barren 不毛の
  • latitude 緯度
  • bald 禿げた
  • propagate oneself 繁殖する

  • capillary vessel 毛細血管

It is said that the more growth rings a tree has, the better it is as timber. A growth ring is formed in a year. Trees in Kyushu region, which is a warm region, grow big enough to be made into a pillar in ten years, while in cold regions such as Akita prefecture, it takes at least 30 years for trees to grow up enough. Though these are the same kind of timber, but they are quite different in price. Because the durability of timber is proportional to the number of its growth rings, the more growth rings a pillar has, the longer it lasts. In the same way, those who have got over difficulties with a positive attitude with a lot of “growth rings” in their heart will be tougher and tougher. They will not only have their heart last long but also acquire eternal life.

Selection Based on the Mind will be The Key to a New Evolution


In the long history of the earth, it was natural that human beings become unable to walk, bite, and eat gradually and die at last. In ancient times, they died just because of lack of teeth. Until a hundred years ago, human beings died once they couldn’t lead a normal life. If animals living in nature are unable to walk, it means death, which is a natural law God laid down. In the long history of living things, strong individuals have survived and evolved with their genes passed on from generation to generation.

  • lack 欠如
  • death 死
  • lay down A Aを制定する
  • survive 生き残る
  • evlove 進化する

In the case of mammals, only one out of hundreds of thousands of sperms can succeed in fertilization. Natural selection has been occurring even in the modern age. Because of this seemingly severe law, creatures have evolved and developed. In the modern age, lack of a basic function of the physical body doesn’t lead to death thanks to the development of medical technology. Even an unconscious patient could live for decades, meaning that the law of natural selection has changed.

  • mammal 哺乳動物
  • sperm 精子
  • fertilization 受精
  • natural selection 自然淘汰
  • seeminlgy 一見すると
  • lead to A Aをもたらす
  • unconscious 意識のない

Now, what is a new natural selection for the development of the human beings? It is the present civilization that has developed medical technology. The development of civilizations is caused by a divine will and it is a result of a law of great nature. It can be said that physical bodies of human beings have begun to degenerate rather than evolve as civilizations develop. God has developed civilizations while making physical bodies of human beings degenerate.

  • present 現在の
  • divine 神の
  • degenerate 退化する
  • rather than~ 〜よりむしろ

What is the human evolution, with their physical bodies degenerating? I feel that the maturing of the physical body as living things has come to an end and that a new age, for the first time in human history, is about to begin when they try to leave their strong genes with mental toughness. That is, the standard of natural selection for the development of human beings will change drastically from the physical standard to the mental one.

  • maturing 熟成
  • come to an end 終わる
  • standard 基準

Well, can those survive who try to depend on God or others? What about disgraceful people trying to chant meaningless spell words for some good effect? I can see a certain sign to signal who to perish naturally in the hearts of such dependant people trying to use even spiritual beings. This is a really dreadful sign.

  • depend 頼る
  • disgraceful 恥ずべき
  • chant 唱える
  • meaningless 意味のない
  • perish 死滅する
  • dreadful 恐ろしい

Though the physical body has been playing the main role while the spiritual body a supporting one up until now, the human physical body will be weaker and weaker because of the electromagnetism of the sun and the spiritual body will play all the more important role. If your spiritual body, or mind, is good, the state is reflected in your physical body, which will also evolve into a new body.

  • main role 主役
  • supporting role 脇役
  • electromagnetism   磁気
  • reflect 反映する

From now on, your mind is the key to everything. It’s important to develop your conscience and keep it. Human beings will evolve by natural selection as they have. The key factor of the evolution will only change. The most important key is your mind being stable and having gratitude all the time.

  • matter 重要である
  • conscience 良心
  • stable 安定した
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
