Those Connected to the World of Gods Come to be Able to Render Gratuitous Service

In Showa era, there lived a strange old woman in a mountainous area of Nara prefecture. When exorcists training themselves in Omine mountain range got possessed by evil spirits and couldn’t get rid of them by themselves, she was the last person for them to turn to. She didn’t give any advice to people in general. She just warded off evil spirits possessing professional exorcists or their spiritual dirt for food in return.

  • get rid of A Aを取り除く
  • turn to A Aに頼る
  • ward off A Aを清める

When I was young, I knew two cult leaders who had met this woman. According to what one of them told me about her, if psychics or spiritual leaders making a lot of money using the name of God died in Japan, they have to spend 21 days in the ground of her garden in the form of big earthworms before leaving this world.

  • earn 稼ぐ
  • spend 過ごす
  • form 形
  • earthworm ミミズ

She showed the earthworms to him on request. Taking off two seat mats on the ground of her garden, he saw various large and small earthworms moving on it. Strangely, the earthworms were various in kind, length, thickness and color. Some of them looked like snakes 30 centimeters long.

  • on request 要望に応じて
  • various 様々な
  • length 長さ
  • snake 蛇

The day he met her was just ten days after a religious leader died secretly, so he told her only the name of his religious organization and asked her if his soul had come to the ground. She said “Ah, Mr. so and so came here recently” and pointed to one big earthworm. The earthworm was a black one about twenty centimeters long and had a weird appearance. It looked as if it were writhing in agony. The name she said was correct.

  • secretly 内密に
  • organization 組織
  • point  指差す
  • weird 奇妙な
  • appearance 姿
  • writhe のたうち回る

I’ve never met her before. I feel that she has something to do with a spiritual being involved in the underworld, for the area she lived in is where a huge black dragon acting for Kunitokotachi-o-kami (国常立大神)descended a long time ago.

God is like air and serves everyone for free. So, you must not claim that God is yours, nor price it to exploit unfortunate people. Those who are connected to the World of Gods know with awe that the world is the one full of service and love. They would feel sorry for unfortunate people and be anxious to help them without expecting anything in return.

  •  serve 役に立つ
  • claim 主張する
  • price 値段をつける
  • exploit 搾取する
  • connect 繋ぐ
  • awe 畏怖
  • be anxious to~ 〜したくて仕方がない

Self-appointed psychics, spiritual gurus or spiritual healers who cannot make a living without accepting money from unfortunate ones are never qualified to do so, because those connected to the higher energy come to be able to live a life of simplicity without accepting any money from the unfortunate. Without such spiritual ability, you couldn’t possibly heal people.

  • self-appointed  自称の
  • be qualified to~ 〜する資格がない
  • simplicity 簡素
  • heal 癒す

If a psychic or spiritual healer accepts money from people, they are never connected to the right spirit world. Indeed, they hold an event one after another in order to squeeze money from people in trouble. Those who are connected to a devildom don’t hesitate to accept money from the poor. They make easy money and “eat” flesh of the opposite sex in the name of God, even breaking others’ families.

  • squeeze 搾り取る
  • hesitate ためらう
  • divildom 魔界
  • flesh 肉

In light of the destination of their souls after death, what they do for a living is anything but a paying business. Their accounts of life are made to balance after all. Japan is a spiritually distinctive country where strange figures like her are born.
