Utilitarian, Useful Religious Faith Leads to the Path of Evil

Family members are each an individual soul in the middle of an eternal journey. To improve your soul, it’s important what kind of faith you have. If you’re greedy, for example, you’ll be attracted to the faith that increases worldly desires. If you like to live alone, the faith that makes you lonely.

Or, if you’re fearful of Armageddon, you’ll be obsessed with a wrong religious group where the believers try to survive without saving other people. There is also a case that you choose not to have any religious faith.

Though there are various religious faiths, such a faith as fosters thoughtfulness and compassion for others is the nearest to God’s will. In this respect, considerate people with compassion for others are great even if they don’t have any religious faith.

In reality, however, people are sometimes too busy living their lives to have thoughtfulness or compassion for others. They know that having these is important, but they sometimes find it difficult to put them into practice.

The daily habit of your holding a thankful memorial service for ancestral spirits and preparing things, such as incense sticks or tea, for them fosters your thoughtfulness and compassion subconsciously. This is because the spiritual magnetism produced by the deed accumulates in space and this magnetism turns into energy that supports the doer. Anything that you do in the World of Reality returns to yourself.

Purifying the spiritual line of your family line has good effects on those around you as well as you. It’s up to you whether or not the deed becomes your habit. The habit of appeasing your ancestral spirits changes your life for the better. It’s up to you and your karma whether you can keep on doing it.

There have been a lot of gurus or psychics since a long time ago who assert that it’s no use holding memorial services for ancestors and that the faith in God is most important. No use holding memorial services for ancestors? I think it’s OK. I mean, I offer my gratitude toward my ancestors who gave me life just out of compassion. I expect nothing of them. Utilitarian or useful religious faiths with exchange conditions will lead you to the path of evil, misleading you.

The right kind of god, full of thoughtfulness and compassion, would come close to those who try to help the unfortunate, while leaving those who are always seeking personal gains. Once the right kind of god leaves you, a demon that devours greedy people’s souls will come close to you instead. You have to be careful about that, for once you’ve fallen into this situation your destiny and the destinies of those around you are affected very badly.

How to Wake up the Creator Deity inside Yourself

The Primordial that produces everything exists not far away from or high above the World of Reality but in the hearts of human beings who live their lives having both good and bad experiences. This is why the more you try to search for God outside your heart, the more you’re separated from God. God is so close to you that you cannot notice its existence.

In this sense, it’s important to perform a ritual to remind yourself of God every day instead of searching for God outside yourself. The practice of offering gratitude to God for being kept alive results in your Inner God manifesting itself.

The Primordial, or Creator deity, produces everything. Does it hope to be given something by others? No. It just produces everything and gives them away. In your heart, it would want you to give something for others. What human beings with Inner God inside should do in this World of Reality is to offer and devote gratitude toward your Inner God, God inside yourself.

It’s rude to ask God for something you want, which makes your Inner God hide itself, when a vicious circle of life begins. Lives of those whose Inner God is hiding itself don’t go as they thought.

Give gratitude toward everythingー your family, acquaintances, colleagues, pet animals, food, house, machines, gods and spiritsー, and your Inner God will wake up. You have the Creator deity inside, no matter how miserable your present situations are or how sick you areーas long as you’re alive in this World of Reality, not in any other world.

A Man is like a Flower on the Edge of a Branch

In life, it is unavoidable to be bereaved of loved ones. Every time someone you know well passes away, you’ll think about his/her life. It’s a good thing for you to remember the deceased.

However, as time goes by, you’ll cease to remember the deceased, which is unavoidable because you’re too busy living your life to remember dead friends.

Deathdays, Equinoctial week and Lantern Festival are when you remember the deceased. You have to be careful not to be too busy taking care of guests who get together to forget the deceased. It’s important to remember good things about the deceased.

A holy spirit tells me that a man is like a flower on the edge of a branch. Flowers wither at the right time. As it is natural that flowers are out, it’s good for human beings just to stay alive. Strong rain sometimes falls on flowers, but flowers just being in blossom until they perish is important.

The point is flowers (= living persons) can bloom thanks to the branch (=their ancestors). Yes, flowers are supported by the branch. Water from the ground is sucked up and sent to the flowers through the branches. Supported by branches and trunks, flowers are out as representatives of the whole. You, or a flower, have to live your life with might and main for the sake of your ancestors supporting you from behind as well as yourself.

Every time I die, I think of one thingー any trouble or tragedy happening in life was nothing, so was any crucial accident. I’m sure you will feel the same thing after you die.

Even if you are in trouble now, thinking about death, you’re sure to remember it after death and laugh. You’ll regret that you could have been tougher and improved yourself much more. And you’ll say “I’m frustrated. God, just give me one more chance!” It depends on the way you live whether you’ll be able to find a branch on which you’ll come out.

How to Live with God

When people start their own business or have a new plan, some of them may visit a psychic or a reputable fortune teller for advice. They don’t know that visiting such a person itself can affect their new business or plan because it handicaps them spiritually.

Some may say “That’s not true. My business is successful now thanks to a piece of advice they gave me.” But, if they had made a choice on their own without any help from others, they would be much more successful now. Quite a few people have lost a lot of time, money and luck because of spiritual handicap.

Also, do not think much of such psychics or fortune tellers in a short time. More often than not, the final result will turn out to be the exact opposite. You have to know just getting involved in such spiritually filthy people affects your lifetime and health.

Spiritual gurus who earn their livings by receiving consulting fee, using spiritual methods, need repeaters. That is, they need others’ unhappiness, unstable state of mind and troubles. As they make money by using others’ misfortunes, they get more and more spiritual dirt.

Just getting in touch with such a spiritual guru spiritually contaminates you and causes you another serious problem and you will end up in becoming a repeater who visits the guru over and over. Yes, you’re sure to fall a prey to the guru.

The gurus become richer and richer, while their clients become more and more miserable without being killed nor lived. For clients to become happy means that their gurus can’t earn enough money to live on.

In this World of Reality, it’s important how you make money, in other words, by what means you make up your physical body in terms of spiritual point of view. The money you get by deceiving people, the money by killing a man, the money by making people happy, the money by contributing to societyーthese are all the same money, but your look and life changes depending on how to make money, for the way you make money influences your spiritual body.

Once you receive money from the unfortunate in exchange for spiritual advice, you’re denied the help from the World of Gods. Spiritual dirt as filthy as dirty dust cloth is attached to your spiritual body. It’s impossible for you to notice it.

Do not mistake such spiritually filthy gurus for great teachers or stars. They are the farthest being from God. My Kanzokushins(眷属神) call them “things that send people down the garden path.” Kenzokushins regard them not as persons but as things. They treat them like objects. It is those who work with diligence that are the closest to God.

Also, it’s not true that your life is doomed due to your birthday. This World of Reality is not so simple, for your efforts bring about the help from the other world.

  1. Hold a memorial service with gratitude for the sake of your ancestral spirits every day.
  2. Have the religious faith of being grateful toward God.

Practicing these, do what you want according to your conscience, and your life will be led for the best by Inner God. This is called Kannagara(カンナガラ), or living with God.
