Harmful Results of the System of Husband and Wife Retaining Separate Family Names

いざわのみや写真

There are old couples who resemble each other in face and atmosphere. They didn’t resemble each other when they were young.

  • resemble 似ている
  • each other お互い
  • atmosphere 雰囲気

There are a lot of reasons for this. For example, they eat the same thing for many years or they live in the same environment or a wife takes in her partner’s protein during intercourse.  But the most influential reason is they are connected to the same spiritual line of the husband’s family line. They, sharing the similar atmosphere, have the same surname, as a matter of course.

  • intercourse 性交
  • surname 姓名
  • as a matter of course 当然のこととして

If they call themselves a different surname, their spiritual lines they’re connected to are different. In the system of husband and wife retaining separate family names, wives remain connected to their family line. Wives are affected, for better or worse, by their family line through its spiritual line. Spiritual energy wives’ spiritual bodies receive comes from the family line of their family homes.

  • affect 影響する
  • retain 保持する
  • separate 別々の
  • for better or worse 善かれ悪しかれ

Therefore, if a husband and a wife uses a different surname, even if they are married, they are just living together in the same house because they’re affected by different spiritual backgrounds. They cannot be a true couple who can open up to each other profoundly. Wives would be apt to be concerned about their family home and they’re likely to end up doing chores for her own family.

  • open up 心を打ち明ける
  • profoundly 深く
  • be concerned about A Aを気にかける
  • be likely to~ 〜しそうである
  • end up ~ing 〜するはめになる
  • chore 家事

Once a husband and a wife whose spiritual backgrounds are different have a fight with each other, they can split up unable to back down. This is because their guardian spirits are different and they belong to different family lines. They would find it difficult to meet each other halfway and compromise.

  • once S+V いったんSがVすると
  • split up 溝ができる
  • back down 引き下がる
  • belong to A Aに属する
  • meet A halfway 折れる
  • compromise 妥協する

Should the system of husband and wife retaining separate family names be granted here in Japan too, divorce rate are sure to rise and as a result children will suffer and Japan will be shaken to its foundations.

  • grant 認める
  • divorce rate 離婚率
  • be sure to~ 必ず〜する
  • suffer from A Aに苦しむ
  • be shaken to its foundations 根底から揺らぐ

Affection Without Expectation

いざわのみや写真

Parents love their children all the time, even when they get old. They think their children are like their doubles and when children suffer, parents can feel as if they were suffering.

  • parent 親
  • double 分身
  • suffer 苦しむ
  • as if S+V あたかもSがVするかのように

But why do they so? Getting pregnant, giving a birth, raising children, sending them to school for a long time, having them get a job and get married― time, labor, money, affection, expectation, dream that parents spend or have for their children are beyond description. When parents begin to feel that their unconscious expectation for their children, having spent most of their life time raising them,  is likely to be betrayed, they seem to begin to suffer.

  • pregnant 妊娠した
  • raise 育てる
  • labor 労働
  • affection 愛情
  • expectation 期待
  • beyond description 言葉に出来ない
  • unconscious 無意識の
  • be likely to~ 〜しそうである
  • betray 裏切る

But don’t you think affection without expectation can exist ? If you raise your children to be twenty, your responsibility ceases publicly.Parents should enjoy the rest of their lives together with their Inner God without counting on their children.

  • exist 存在する
  • responsibility 責任
  • cease 終わる
  • the rest 残り
  • count on A Aに頼る

Also you should bring up your children so that they won’t be dependant on you. Sooner or later parents die before their children. So you can’t help your children forever. And your children, unexpectedly, are often tormented with your tacit expectation for them.

  • so that S+V SがVするように
  • dependant 依存した
  • forever 永遠に
  • torment 苦しめる
  • tacit 暗黙の

That children, who are supposed to succeed to their family line, are suffering mentally often means that there exist some ancestral spirits who are also suffering. In such a case, all you have to do is practice holding memorial services with gratitude using three incense sticks. Memorial services out of love without any expectation really work on ancestral spirits. Just remember human beings can improve much more easily than you think.

  • be supposed to~ 〜することになっている
  • succeed to A Aを継ぐ
  • family line 家系
  • ancestral 先祖の
  • practice 実践する
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • incense stick 線香
  • work on A Aに作用する

Parents’ obsession can involve their children.

いざわのみや写真

It is often said that marriage is not the goal of life. Married couple would face new challenges in life after the marriage.

  • marriage 結婚
  • face 直面する

If you have desire to want something, the desire ends as soon as you get it. But when you meet someone, new unexpected things will happen for better or worse.

  • desire 願望
  • as soon as S+V SがVするとすぐに
  • unexpected 予期せぬ
  • for better or worse 善かれ悪しかれ

Karma plays an important role in human relationships. Souls concern or attract each other. There are various levels of karmas―a karma between souls of living human beings or one between souls of the deceased and souls of living human beings etc. As a result of these karmas having effects on the World of Reality, human beings meet each other, get married or pregnant.

  • role 役割
  • relationship 関係
  • concern 関わる
  • attract 引き付ける
  • the deceased 故人
  • have effects 影響を与える
  • get married 結婚する
  • get pregnant 妊娠する

There has been a problem whether we should approve of artificial pregnancy made possible by the latest technology. I believe it’s better for people who really want children not to be obsessed by the desire one-sidedly. I think they should let nature take her course. But if they do have the desire, of course, they had better make right kind of efforts to make it happen.

  • approve of A Aを是認する
  • artificial pregnancy 人工妊娠
  • the latest 最新の
  • obsessed 捕らわれる
  • one-sidedly 一方的に
  • let nature take her course 自然に任せる

Some parents commit suicide worrying about the future of their children. Others try gene manipulation to have children. As there is a possibility that parents’ obsession with children or egoism can involve the children and confine their Inner God, I’d like to warn them.

  • commit 犯す
  • suicide 自殺
  • gene manipulation 遺伝子操作
  • possibility 可能性
  • egoism エゴ
  • confine 閉じ込める
  • Inner God 内在神

Try your best and let nature take her course. Then accept all the results. This is the way to Kannagara, or being always with God.

  • accept 受け入れる
  • result  結果

It’s important to eat during the day.

いざわのみや写真

I’ve been feeling since February 3rd this year that I get full eating smaller amount of food than before. I used to drink cheap wine in a 1.8 liters bottle made in Japan but I can’t drink it now because it tastes so bad.

  • get full 満腹になる
  • amount 量
  • used to~  〜したものだった

I had disliked to eat until I entered a kindergarten. I didn’t feel hungry if I didn’t eat and didn’t feel tired playing outside all day. I still remember that I felt pain at mealtime. I feel, somehow, I’m going back to what I used to be.

  • dislike   嫌う
  • kindergarten 幼稚園
  • all day 一日中
  • mealtime 食事の時間

Those whose appetite is strong have stronger physical bodies than their spiritual ones and the frequency of vibration of their spiritual wave motions is rough. Or it can be said that they are trapped in a habit of eating.

  • appetite 食欲
  • frequency of vibration 振動数
  • wave motion 波動
  • trapped   囚われた
  • habit 習慣

Spiritual wavelength of the World of Reality has been rising in the direction of subtlety because of spiritual sunlight and the electromagnetism of the sun. It matters whether you can tune in with this wavelength or not. If you can’t, symptoms of diseases will appear.

  • wavelengh 波長
  • the World of Reality 現実界
  • direction 方向
  • subtlety 精妙さ
  • electromagnetism   磁気
  • matter 重要である
  • tune in with A Aに合わせる
  • symptom 兆候
  • disease 病気

Now we are in the period of transition from the age of a physical body playing a main role to that of a spiritual body. We still need to eat. It’s important to take in well-balanced necessary nutrition and eat until 70 percent full. It’s advisable not to eat after 9 p.m. If you have to eat after 9 p.m., you should skip supper and eat the next morning or if you do, you should eat a little. Midnight snacks are really bad and unnecessary. Unless you eat during the day or within four hours after sunset, your physical body will weaker and weaker in the future ahead.

  • transition   移行
  • well-balanced バランスのとれた
  • nutrition 栄養
  • advisable 望ましい
  • supper 夕食
  • midnight snack 夜食
  • unless S+V SがVしない限りは
  • sunset 日没

Human beings are entering a new age when hidden spiritual bodies come to play a more important role than physical bodies. To make this change happen naturally, it’s important that you make your related spirits rest in peace with gratitude and your spiritual body light.

  • related   関係した
  • rest in peace 安心して眠る

I’ve remembered an episode in a TV program Mr.G talked about, who had been a pioneer of Japanese jazz drummers since the end of WWⅡ.

  • pioneer 先駆者
  • WWⅡ 第二次世界大戦

When he was young, Mr.G worked part-time as a jazz performer at a base of the U.S. occupation army. He was a heavy smoker then.

  • part-time アルバイトで
  • occupation army 占領軍

A manager of the club saw Mr.G working hard late every night, so one day he gave him an expensive pack of cigarettes of a famous brand as a present. On seeing the pack of cigarettes, he saw that it was worthy of a couple of days of work. He made a gurgling sound.

  • expensive 高価な
  • on ~ing 〜するとすぐに
  • be worthy of A  Aの価値がある
  • make a gurgling sound  ごくりと喉を鳴らす

But he thought a thing, and he declined to accept it. The manager asked the reason. “A pack of cigarettes would be out soon. And after that, I have to smoke a cheap cigarette again as usual. Once I know the good taste of the expensive cigarette, the cheap one must taste very bad. If you would continue giving me the cigarette for the rest of my life, I would accept it,” he replied.

  • decline 断る
  • accept 受け取る
  • once S+V いったんSがVすると
  • rest 残り
  • reply 答える

Well, human beings, once born, get old gradually, fall ill, and die without exception. This is the right course of life. There are troubles and difficulties in life. So are diseases, misfortunes and fortunes. This is what a life should be.

  • gradually 徐々に
  • fall ill 病気になる
  • exception 例外
  • trouble 問題
  • difficulty   困難
  • disease 病気
  • misfortune 不運

If you’re always chasing for good things, don’t you feel stressed? If you don’t have any gratitude to your physical body, which was sent as a gift from God, thinking ” I hate this piece of shit,” then troubles with your body do increase. If you take good care of an old car, it will last. It is not until you accept the present situations and have gratitude to it that the course of your life begins to be corrected so that you can enjoy your life.

If you think you’re strong, you have to be careful about your health.

いざわのみや写真

I drove my business car today in a lot of snow. I had used a car which could change to four-wheel drive until last year but I can use a rear-wheel-drive vehicle now.

  • four-wheel-drive 四輪駆動
  • rear-wheel-drive 後輪駆動

It snowed a lot today, so I drove the car carefully because it was my first time I used it. It being rear-wheel-drive, I drove it very carefully thinking that it was easy to slip. I drove it keeping the speed not more than 40 kilometers an hour. Some four-wheel-drive cars and front-wheel-drive cars were passing mine.

  • slip 滑る
  • pass 通り越す

Remembering about last year, I found the road was the one where I had driven my four-wheel-drive car at the speed of 60 kilometers an hour. Four-wheel-drive vehicles are stable and difficult to slip. But once it exceeds a certain critical point, it can be out of control and you can’t stop it.

  • stable 安定した
  • exceed 越える
  • critical point 臨界点
  • out of control 制御不可能な

On snowy roads, unexpectedly, there are a lot of car accidents caused by four-wheel-drive cars. Because they can really move, terrible accidents can happen. I thought the easier to slip the car you drive is, the more careful you become when driving and more less likely you are to have accidents.

  • unexpectedly 意外なことに
  • terrible 酷い
  • be likely to~ 〜しそうである

I feel it holds true for your health, too. If you think your body is fragile, you won’t overwork yourself. You will try to get a good sleep or be careful about food you eat.

  • hold true 当てはまる
  • fragile か弱い
  • good sleep 十分な睡眠

If you were young, on the other hand, you would have confidence in your health and have fun all night or make do with junk food. But once you lose your health, it is very difficult to get it back. So people with long life might have been fragile when they were young.

  • on the other hand 一方
  • confidence 自信
  • make do with A Aで済ます
  • once S+V いったんSがVすると
  • might have pp 〜したかもしれない

It is when you’re in good condition that it’s important to remind yourself of gratitude and never to forget the fundamental truth that you’re being kept alive.

  • condition 状態
  • remind oneself of A Aを思い出す
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • fundamental 根本的な

However hard you try to remove spirits, there is no end.

いざわのみや写真

A lot of psychics swindle their clients in trouble out of their money, lying that they can remove the spirits possessing the clients. A lot of people in trouble visit famous psychics who appear on TV. But are they, who say ” I can remove it” and receive money from their clients, really capable of removing those spirits? Do they do such a thing only for those who need to do so? Aren’t they making money like business charging their clients per spirit?

  • swindle 騙し取る
  • remove 取り除く
  • appear 登場する
  • capable できる
  • charge 請求する
  • per 〜につき

Clients who have their spirits possessing them removed in exchange for a lot of money might say with joy “Mr. so and so has removed the spirit possessing me and thanks to him the spiritual problem has been solved. I was saved.” But the truth is the situation is to the contrary.

  • in exchange for A Aと引き換えに
  • solve 解決する
  • to the contrary 逆の

Truth is that to have pay psychics or religious groups remove spirits possessing you is to attach spiritual dirt to you. They are not removing the spirits from you but attaching spiritual dirt to you. After temporary improvement, another problem you feel like taking counsel about will happen one after another, and you will end up being “a repeater, ” that is , you will continue visiting the psychic or religious group forever. This is how you’ll be swindled out of your money gradually.

  • dirt 汚物
  • attach くっつける
  • temporary 一時的な
  • imprvement 改善
  • feel like ~ing 〜したい気がする
  • take counsel 相談する
  • one after another  次から次へと
  • end up ~ing 結局は〜することになる
  • This is how S+V このようにしてSはVする

If you, as well as psychics,  have a way of thinking of “removing spirits,” you cannot cut yourself away from Devildom. As long as you are conscious of those spiritual beings, you are in the dimension where you are affected by them.

  • as well as A Aだけでなく
  • Devildom 魔界
  • as long as S+V SがVする限り
  • be conscious of A Aを意識する
  • dimension 次元
  • affect 影響する

If you think that you have to remove spirits possessing you every time a strange or unpleasant thing happens to you, you won’t be relieved unless you ask someone for advice. Then, your Inner God will shrink back and you will be a living dead who can’t live of your own free will. This is just what Devildom wants.

  • be relieved ほっとする
  • unless S+V SがVしない限り
  • ask A for B AにBをくれと頼む
  • shrink back 萎縮する
  • living dead 生ける屍
  • of one’s own free will 自由意志で

When I decide that someone who has something to do with me needs removing spirits possessing him temporarily, I do it for him without letting him know it because I’ve made a promise to do so with my holy spirits. I cut the negative, spiritual magnetism covering him from a distance. If I told him about it, he would worry about why such a spirit is possessing him and the fear would attract another spiritual being. Also he would try to depend on me and his ”way to Inner God” would be narrowed.

  • have something to do with A Aと何らかの関係がある
  • magnetism 磁気
  • from a distance 遠くから
  • attract 引き付ける
  • depend on A Aに頼る
  • narrow 狭くする

A lot of self-appointed psychics or healers talk about “God” “angels” and “world peace” like daydreamer and think that to tune in to the wavelength of high dimensions would figure things out. But this world is not so easy as they think.

  • tune in to A Aに波長を合わせる
  • wavelength 波長
  • figure A out Aを解決する

More and more spiritual beings in the World of Hell are taking refuge in the World of Reality, so such pay psychics are to face the hellish spiritual beings first. Simply put, they will be beaten up first.

  • take refuge 逃げる
  • beat up A Aをやっつける

In short, you don’t need to remove spirits possessing you with money, time and pay psychics. If you realize the fact that “you’re being kept alive” deeply, the spirits with you will also be kept alive as your Inner God will manifest itself. And each person can move on to a world he should be. You, a reader of this blog, have also some karma with me, and you are with me.

  • in short 要するに
  • manifest oneself 顕れる
  • move on to A Aに進む

Don’t be afraid nor make light of spirits.

いざわのみや写真

In spring, I sleep well and feel good. It seems that physical bodies perceive the change of seasons during sleep and switch their sensors from the one for coldness to the one for warmth.  Apart from this reaction of a physical body, you can feel sleepy because of a spiritual reason.

  • perceive 知覚する
  • apart from A Aは別として
  • reaction 反応

There are a lot of people who have a car accident because they feel sleepy suddenly in passing a spot where a fatal accident took place in the past. You can be very sleepy when you go to a place which used to be a battle field a long time ago, or an office or a house where a lot of wandering spirits gather.

  • suddenly 突然
  • fatal accident 死亡事故
  • take place 起こる
  • used to be ~ 以前は〜であった
  • battle field 戦場
  • wander 彷徨う
  • gather 集まる

You have to be careful when you begin to yawn suddenly at some place. Even if it has nothing to do with spirits, you can yawn suddenly due to high-voltage lines affecting physical bodies magnetically or some other physical causes.

  • yawn あくびをする
  • even if S+V たとえSがVするとしても
  • have nothing to do with A Aと関係がない
  • due to A Aのために
  • mangetically 磁気的に

Also, there are some cases where children won’t stay in their rooms or can’t concentrate on homework feeling sleepy because of the effects of spirits. Of course, it is mainly because they just don’t like to study, but when their parents start to hold memorial services for their ancestors, the effects of wandering ancestral spirits on the children will decrease as the spirits feel at ease. As a result, such children come to concentrate on study and their grade will improve. I know a lot of cases like this.

  • concentrate 集中する
  • memorial service 供養
  • ancestor 先祖
  • decrease 減る
  • feel at ease 安心する
  • grade 成績

I have just written a lot about the relation between sleepiness and spirits. Well, then, what should you do when you feel sleepy? It is not good that you, afraid of spirits, try to avoid or remove them. It is worst to have the thought of “driving away” spirits. Self-appointed professional psychics swindle their clients who are scared of spirits out of their money in exchange for performing rituals to drive away spirits, but you would end up covering your spiritual dirt with other different spiritual dirt.

  • relation 関係
  • avoid 避ける
  • remove 取り除く
  • swindle 騙し取る
  • in exchange for A Aと交換に
  • ritual 儀式
  • end up ~ing 結局は〜することになる

Even living human beings would get mad if they are avoided or excluded, so would spirits. Also, if they are made light of by people, they will try to make them know that they do exist. So it’s important that you are not afraid of spirits unnecessarily nor make light of them.

  • get mad 怒る
  • exclude 排除する
  • make light of A Aを軽んじる
  • exist 存在する
  • unnecessarily 不必要に

When you feel the existence of spirits or feel sleepy extraordinarily, you should think “Thank you so much for keeping us alive.” This phrase includes subtle spiritual meanings which are not that you’re afraid of, making light of or attacking spirits. With this phrase, you can handle a wide range of spirits ranging from low-level to high-level spirits.

  • extraordinarily 異常に
  • include 含む
  • subtle 精妙な
  • handle 扱う

From now on, the new age will come when this World of Reality plays the main part. That is, living human beings will play the main role. Human beings with Inner God in their hearts will not be controlled by invisible spiritual beings like they were in the past. Therefore you don’t have to be afraid of spirits.

  • the World of Reality 現実界
  • main part 主役
  • Inner God 内在神
  • invisible 見えない
  • therefore それ故

A few people might get sleepy in holding a memorial service for their ancestors, which means that there a lot of ancestral spirits and spirits related to them who have longed for the service. If you practice holding memorial services with gratitude for them, with a Tanzaku, a strip of fancy paper, set securely and three incense sticks offered, everything around you are sure to change gradually for the better. Looking back later, you would understand it.

  • practice 実践する
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • be sure to~ 必ず〜する

Memorial services for yourself is very effective on dissolution of your past trauma.

いざわのみや写真

It is possible for human beings to forget something unbearable you want to forget superficially. But your spiritual body will remember it.

  • unbearable 耐えられない
  • awful ひどい
  • superficially 表面的に

Violence directed against you when you were a child by your relative to depend upon especially remains in your spiritual body deeply. Violence you can talk about with others is no problem. The experience that you were hit by your father to bleed when you did something wrong, for example, can be a good memory after he passes away.

  • violence 暴力
  • direct 向ける
  • relative 親戚
  • especially 特に
  • remain 残る
  • possibility 可能性
  • pass away 亡くなる
  • bleed 出血する

But the kind of violence that you cannot talk about can be a problem. It is memorized as a wound in the magnetism of your spiritual body. The same thing can be said in the case of your social life. So, it is very good mentally and spiritually that you can talk about such an awful experience with others or confess it to others. Because it means that you have already sublimated it in your own way.

  • wound 傷
  • confess 告白する
  • magnetism 磁気
  • sublime 昇華する

In this respect, the custom of confession of Christianity is reasonable. Interesting enough, you can confess it with an animal or a plant. It seems that the Original God has set the default of life so that unless creatures get in touch with each other, their life force will decrease.

  • respect 点
  • custom 慣習
  • reasonable 理にかなっている
  • the Original God 根源神
  • unless S+V SがVしない限り
  • creature 生物
  • decrease 減る

If you notice your family member or colleague stop chatting or talking positively, you have to worry. It is a sign that he or she is in a mentally tight spot. You have to take care of your conversations to prevent some mental disorder, too.

  • notice 気がつく
  • cease to~  〜するのをやめる
  • conversation 会話
  • prevent 防ぐ
  • mental disorder 精神障害

Even if you have come of age and think you have forgotten some past mental trauma, the memories engraved in your spiritual magnetism can be remembered again without knowing it because of stress you receive in your social life. You cannot not understand the reason why you’re so depressed or sad because you’ve forgotten the past memories. You cannot associate the phenomena with their causes. In an extreme case, self-injurious behaviour such as wrist cutting might begin. I think alcoholism without any clear reason is also an act of self-harm.

  • c0me of age 成人になる
  • engrave 刻む
  • because of A A のために
  • reason 理由
  • depressed 落ち込んだ
  • sad 悲しい
  • associate A with B AをBと結びつけて考える
  • phenomena 現象
  • cause 原因
  • self-injurious behaviour 自傷行為
  • alcoholism アルコール中毒

To improve this phenomena fundamentally, you should have the faith to be conscious of God in your heart, and hold memorial services for your ancestors with gratitude, though you might think it takes a long time or think it strange. I believe this is the shortest way to improve mental problems naturally and solve them.

  • improve 改善する
  • fundamentally 根本的に
  • faith 信仰
  • conscious 意識して
  • ancestor 先祖
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • solve 解決する

You can suppress symptoms by drug therapy, but there are side effects that do harm to your health. So I recommend that you practice holding memorial services for your ancestors, drink a lot of tepid water and do some exercise together with a little drug therapy. If you do this, you will be OK without any drug. Ideally, it is best not to take drugs from the beginning.

  • suppress 抑える
  • drug therapy   薬物療法
  • side effect 副作用
  • do harm 害を与える
  • recommend 勧める
  • tepid ぬるい

Spiritually speaking, there are two cases like the following:

1. There are some negative wounds in your spiritual body because of trauma inflicted by others.

2. Though you don’t have any traumatic experience, you’re covered with magnetism of dissatisfaction of your ancestral spirits related to you.

  • inflict 与える
  • dissatisfaction 不満
  • related 関係した

Regarding to 1, you should say ” Thank you so much for keeping YOUR NAME alive” several times  after holding a memorial service for your ancestors. Or when you have free time, after three incense sticks have burnt out, you should put an incense stick and say the same thing many times while the incense stick is burning. This is a memorial service for you, and can heal spiritual wounds of your past. Fire of incense sticks can burn the negative, spiritual magnetism.

  • regarding to A Aに関して
  • incense stick 線香
  • heal 癒やす

Also, if you have any mental disease, growing up plants is also good. If the mental disease is serious, you should water plants everyday and raise them. To raise living things is to raise your heart.

  • disease 病気
  • water 水をあげる
  • raise 育てる

As for 2, as your spiritual body is sublimed by holding memorial services with three incense sticks, the symptoms will be improved. But don’t expect for the result hastily. If you hurry, you’ll have an unnecessary clinging mind. It’s important you practice this steadily, living a social life.

  • expect for A Aを期待する
  • hastily 急いで

Spiritual magnetism (= ectoplasm)looks like smoke at a glance. You can neutralize magnetism of anxiety by fragrant smoke. Some self-appointed psychics make light of the effects of smoke of incense sticks, which proves that they don’t have any ability to grasp spiritual reality.

Taoism is very spiritual, practical teachings, which has affected Ise Grand Shrine and the Imperial Household. Smoke cannot have any influence on deities, but it does have huge influence on spirits. Smoke is valued in Taoism more than in Japan. Smoke of incense sticks plays a role of connecting deities to spirits.

Thank you so much for keeping us alive.

True religious faith is what each one of us should have.

いざわのみや写真

Now that you have been born, it is important that you have “faith of your own color.” That is, religious faiths of others are those of their color. You have to have your faith of your own color. Ise-Hakusan Dou is the way to aim for Inner God and be awake to your own god, which leads you to true happiness. What others worship is not yours.

  • now that S+V SがVする今
  • religious faith 信仰
  • that is つまり
  • aim for A Aを目指す
  • awake 目覚めた

The faith should not be had in groups. Human beings are all different from each other in face, character, and so on. Every one of us is like a star. Stars travel in the universe with the current of galaxies and move in the same direction. Just as each star travels with the big current of a galaxy, the direction of your faith is important.

  • each other 互い
  • character 性格
  • and so on など
  • universe 宇宙
  • galaxy 銀河
  • direction 方向

The direction of Ise-Hakusan Dou is;

1. To pay attention to what you have taken for granted in the present situations and to have gratitude for it.

2. To offer only gratitude to ancestral spirits and deities.

3. To foster and develop God in our hearts.

That’s all.

  • pay attention to A Aに注意を払う
  • take A for granted Aを当たり前と思う
  • the present situations 現状
  • offer 捧げる
  • gratittude 感謝の気持ち
  • ancestral 先祖の
  • foster 育てる
  • develop 発達させる

Unless you make a mistake in this basic direction, you don’t have to worry about details of manners or differences of words. Those who cling to the ways incantations and congratulatory addresses are said and say “This has to be done like this” or “You must do this like that” are actually not connected to God or don’t know anything about God. Because they don’t know God, they try to depend of formalities.

  • unless S+V SがVしない限り
  • detail 細かい点
  • cling to A Aに執着する
  • incantation 呪文
  • congratulatory adderess 祝詞
  • formality 形式

Low-level spiritual beings in the World of the Dead or Devildom love teachings which bind down human minds. By making humans chant meaningless incantations, they try to make them expect something good. Religious faiths which promote dependence like this will make you separate from your Inner God and you will never feel the sense of security forever.

  • Divildom 魔界
  • bind down A Aを縛り付ける
  • expect 期待する
  • sense of security 安心感
  • forever 永遠に

There are some people in society who hate religious groups and believe in their own efforts. They don’t have any household Shinto altar and rarely visit their ancestors’ graves during Obon festival. On the face of it, they appear to be the ones who lack faith, but as long as they can do what is mentioned at No.1 above, I think they are socially great.

  • society 社会
  • hate 嫌う
  • rarely めったに〜ない
  • grave 墓
  • on the face of it 一見すると
  • lack 欠く
  • mention 言及する

However, various kinds of obstacles you have to get over are in store in life so that you can improve yourself. In the course of life, you have to experience difficulties and sad things you can never avoid. In such situations, even people who look strong, as people are weak sometimes, may think they’re unlucky and lose their ways.

  • obstacle 障害
  • be in store  待ち構えている
  • improve 改善する
  • avoid 避ける
  • weak 弱い

I wish they had the faith like No1, 2 and 3 in such a difficult situations. Unfortunately the right kind of religious faith is little, if any. Because most religions become corrupt gradually and their main purposes turn into collecting money before believers know it. If you happen to join a religious organization which thinks much of collecting money, you will end up thinking that you shouldn’t have believed in God after spending a lot of money and time. This is miserable. The right faith has nothing to do with money.

  • unfortunaltely 残念ながら
  • corrupt 腐敗した
  • purpose 目的
  • collect 集める
  • happen to~  たまたま〜する
  • think much of A Aを重要視する
  • end up ~ing 結局は〜するはめになる

No 2 and 3 are important. We may have repeated reincarnations for the purpose of realizing them. In terms of souls, it is halfway done for human beings to just work, enjoy their lives and die. Now that you have been given a life in this world thanks to a series of miracles, such a way of life is really a waste. It’s important that you should realize God in your heart deeply while you’re alive.
