Directionology is a Groundless Human-Made Divination

Konjin(金神, golden god): god of azimuth worshipped in Onmyo-dou(陰陽道), yin-yang philosophy or an occult divination system based on the Taoist theory, where it’s prohibited to go out or move in the direction toward the god, or to get married to a woman from the region in the direction. It is said that if this rule is broken, seven family members of the person are supposed to be killed by Konjin.  (From Kojien dectionary).

According to an ancient book of Onmyo-dou entitled Hakinaiden, Konjin, abominated and feared by people, is the spirit of Kotan-daiou(巨旦大王), who was destroyed by Gozu-Tennou(牛頭天王), the king of heaven with the head of a bull, and his dead body was cut to pieces. The direction of Konjin varies from year to year. Though some new religion asserts that Konjin of ushitora(丑寅), meaning “northeast,”  is the righteous god who was sealed up in Kimon(鬼門), the demon’s gate, and his true identity is Kunitokotachi-o-kami(国常立太神). It’s true that Kunitokotachi-o-kami is the highest rank of Konjin but the assertion that Konjin is the god of Kimon who controls azimuth is wrong. Konjin is too great a god to punish people who moved in the wrong direction.

When a person plans to build a new house on a land and the person or his contractor moves the soil of the land, bad things, including death, sometimes happen to the person like a curse. People in ancient times didn’t know the reason, so they associated such evils with azimuth and developed the divination system. Directionology, or azimuth divination, is nothing more than a groundless human-made divination. Many fortunetellers have been making a lot of money using this divination, though.

  • associate A with B AをBと結びつけて考える
  • nothing more than A Aにすぎない
  • groundless 根拠のない
  • fortuneteller 占い師

Why then do bad things happen when people dig earth to build a house? This is because the land of Japan itself is the body of God. You don’t need to worry about azimuth direction. As long as you pay your respects to the land(=God)in any way before starting the construction, there’s no problem. Since there are a lot of Kenzoku-shin, part of God, living especially in Japan, it’s important that you pay your respects to the land in advance. If you’re not sure if respects were paid by the contractor to your land on which your house was built, just say in your mind “I’m grateful for being kept alive” every day, for I received these words from Kunitokotachi-o-kami residing in Geku(外宮) of Ise Grand Shrine(伊勢神宮). Kunitokotachi-o-kami is the Great Golden God, who controls the earth and life.

The Great Golden God tells me that he will save those who try to live to the last without depending on others and abandoning themselves.  The way he saves people is different from person to person, but he will save such people in the true sense. On the other hand, he tells me that those are no longer necessary who try to ask outer gods, psychics or spiritual healers for help, not being able to believe themselves, and that such dependent people are the result of degradation of souls transmigrating over and over for a long, long time.

  • transmigrate 輪廻転生

You don’t need to feel fear to hear this. Is your body weak? It’s OK. Is your mind unstable? No problem. All you have to do is nourish yourself (= part of God or Inner God), never giving up yourself. To nourish yourself is to nourish the Great Golden God’s child.

  • fear  恐怖
  • unstable   不安定な
  • nourish 養育する

By the way, it’s true that Ultraman represents Golden God. It sounds like a joke, though. The producer of Ultraman was inspired by Konjin. The story is about battles against monsters from space. It is based on an aspect of the historical event that did happen in ancient times, which is also related with the secret of the emergence of humans. Ultraman has been gaining popularity again these days. This is a sign of the revival of the Great Golden God. I began to write this blog in the same period. You are going to see a very interesting world begin.
