It is the Grace of God that Everything Changes

In the World of Reality, it is important to make efforts and continue to do so. There is no such a thing as fate. The future is not fixed. Just one universal law exists in the universe: things change. Sakyamuni once said “All things are in flux and nothing is permanent.” That is, everything, good or bad, is sure to change.

You can gradually change the direction of your life by making constant efforts. No other belief is more absurd than that of giving up changing the future without making any efforts with the assumption that the future is fixed. It is the assumption that the present difficult situations will never change that makes you suffer.

How do things change? For example, you will come to be able to accept the present situations by changing your attitude. Situations of both you and the other person will be forced to change, and so on. It’s bad to focus only on the present and despair.

If you committed suicide because of your restricted vision, your state of suffering in agony would be fixed and your soul would be attracted to the fixed world. The suffering in the fixed world is beyond imagination. The mere thought of suffering or pain lasting forever is horrifying. I feel the truth that everything changes in this world is the grace of God.

Unfortunately, some people grow inflexible and obstinate. Their hearts are easily hurt by trifle things. They live life as if they were already in Hell. It’s important to be flexible and soft, physically and mentally. If you have flexible thinking and body, you don’t get hurt or injured by absorbing impact or stimulus. If you don’t, your body cells will be harder and harder and you’re likely to have cancer or some disease.

Let go of yourself and stop being particular about small things, and you can avoid having cancer or diseases. Try to be flexible in many respects.

However, it’s not easy to change mental attitude. Therein lies the importance of holding a memorial service to appease your ancestral spirits and reminding yourself of gratitude to God everyday. Being grateful all the time makes the magnetism of gratitude accumulate in space. It’s important to continue to do these.

Just as your blood is the best for your body when you get blood infusion, the magnetism of gratitude that you have accumulated in space will have good influences on you. It will surely change the course of your life for the better.

Dependant People can’t Change the World

A person of a supernatural idea living abroad once said “If at least 7700 pure persons concentrate on world peace and produce a spiritual energy, they can improve the world.”

It is said that in Japan, it was about only a small part of the population that made Meiji restoration. The number of the people is thought to be only about ten thousand people in terms of the present population of Japan. They made the revolution that changed the whole country. The number must be much less than you imagined. Only ten thousand people can change lives of more than hundred million people.

There are many religious organizations in the world that have more than a hundred thousands, or millions, of members. But they haven’t realized world peace yet. They cannot even bring their believers peace of mind, either. Why? Because religious groups of servile believes are powerless.

Even if believers with passive-dependent personality who are always wanting something get together, saying like “I want you to do this for me,”or “If I go there, I’ll get lucky,” they cannot change the world. Even a religion of more than one million devotees has only a voice of its fat leader who enjoys a luxurious life. God, absolutely fair and square being, would never support such people doing unfair things.

There is no name list of this blog, much less membership list. You’re reading this blog of your own accord. I don’t force you to do something. Readers of this blog don’t know each other’s name. This is why I can write anything I want.

There are already more than a ten thousand readers of this blog who make a practice of appeasing their ancestral spirits and reminding themselves of gratitude to their present situations. Every time I publish a book, the number of the readers of this blog seems to increase by the thousand.

“Why are you going to write another book?” I was asked by a reader. Because there are still a lot of people who have fallen victims to bad spiritual teachers, whose true purpose is to make money. I have to wake up such people in need of help who don’t know this blog. This has to do with the future of this country and the children to come.

It is best if you yourself appease your own ancestral spirits. What you have to believe is your conscience and your ancestral spirits. Those who practice this will get divine protection.

Part of the Creator resides in each of you as Inner God. This is why you have been kept alive to this day.

The World of Reality is Where You can Find out God

The other day, our family was in charge of keeping an eye on the dump site so that animals such as crows or cats wouldn’t scavenge on garbage bags. People in my neighborhood have to do this job by turns.

  • be in charge  責任者である
  • keep an eye 見張る
  • dump site ゴミ捨て場
  • scanvenge 漁る

One of my family members got up early in the morning, went to the dump site and found the garbage was scattered by animals. I, together with the other family members, went there with cleaning devices and garbage bags to clean up the site. The dump site stunk.

  • scatter 撒き散らす
  • device 用具
  • stink 臭う

If I had left the site as it was, other inhabitants would have hesitated to put their garbage and garbage trucks wouldn’t have collected the broken garbage bags as a rule. This happening was stimulating for me because normally I’m not the person to take care of our house’s garbage.

  • inhabitant 住人
  • hesitate ためらう
  • collect 集める
  • as a rule 原則として
  • simulating 刺激的な

If garbage trucks were to stop collecting garbage in the city, the people would get into real trouble. The streets would be full of garbage, cars couldn’t pass along the streets and people couldn’t live there due to the bad smell. Epidemics could break out, too.

  • get into trouble 厄介なことになる
  • due to A Aのために
  • epidemic 疫病
  • break out 勃発する

The fact is social lives, which we are apt to take for granted, are easy to collapse. The happening on that day made me reaffirm the importance of the unnoticeable people working for the whole society such as refuse collectors.

  • social life 社会生活
  • be apt to~  〜しがちである
  • take A for granted Aを当たり前と思う
  • collapse 崩壊する
  • reaffirm 再確認する

Their importance is also true of the spiritual world. Spiritualistic ideas remote from reality are useless, like high dimensions, spiritual ladders, aliens and so on.  These are nothing but illusion like daydreaming.

  • remote 離れた
  • psychic 霊能者
  • nothing but A Aにすぎない
  • illusion 幻想

Some psychics may say that they’ve found God through meditation. So what? They call themselves enlightened men and receive a lot of money from believers just by talking about their unusual experiences. What a peaceful world!

  • meditation 瞑想
  • enlightened 悟った
  • peaceful world 平和な世界
  • unusual 普通でない

However much they boast of their “high” spirituality, they cannot eat anything nor have their excreta and garbage collected without others’ help. Indeed, they are being kept alive by people working hard in the real world.

  • boast 自慢する
  • excreta 排泄物
  • indeed 実際

You have to observe the fact that you exist in this World of Reality with your physical body, which a succession of miracles can only make possible. This world is within God. In other words, only in your daily lives can you have the chance to see God.

  • observe よく見る
  • physical 肉体の
  • succession 連続

Thanks to your ancestors, you have your physical body now. Your body is a product of both your invisible ancestral spirits and your soul. Purify your physical body and ancestral spirits, and you’ll see this world is filled with God’s will. Only in your ordinary lives can you catch a glimpse of the blessings given by the Great Being.

  • thanks to A Aのお陰で
  • product 産物
  • be filled with A Aでいっぱいである
  • catch a glimpse of A Aを垣間見る
  • blessing 恩恵

My Personal View of Ghost Pictures

81pvowlMOmL

Yesterday, I watched a TV show featuring ghost pictures, where three judges commentated on ghost pictures. Though comments about ghost pictures have been often quite different from mine recently, those made by judges who appeared on TV in Showa era would often correspond with mine. A famous psychic Aiko Gibo(宜保愛子) or Mr.T, who was a founder of a new religion and famous in Kansai area, were capable of seeing the spirit world, aside from the level of the spirits behind them and that of their spirituality.

  • feature 特集する
  • ghost picture 心霊写真
  • correspond 一致する
  • be capable of~ing 〜することができる
  • aside from A Aは別として

The producer of the TV show must have tried to make the TV program as objective as possible by having three judges commentate on ghost pictures in advance and introducing a judgement common among them. However, the comments in this program were very different from mine.

  • objective 客観的な
  • in advance 前もって
  • common 共通の

Since the spirit world is invisible, there is no proving the existence of the world. So comments about it on TV are often accepted as they are without being verified. I think it’s more important in such programs to impart the knowledge of, and an appropriate attitude to, the sprit world  to viewers rather than just introducing judges’ comments. Now I’ll explain about ghost pictures from my spiritual point of view.

  • invisible 目に見えない
  • prove 証明する
  • existence 存在
  • verify 検証する
  • impart 教える
  • appropriate 適切な

In some of the ghost pictures shown in yesterday’s program, part of a subject’s body was transparent or missing. This phenomenon mostly suggest notices from ancestral spirits. The person in such a picture has to heed the part of the body because there is a possibility of the part or the whole body becoming ill sooner or later.

  • subject 被写体
  • transparent 透明な
  • phenomenon 現象
  • notice 知らせ
  • heed 気をつける

A certain judge in the program said that such a phenomenon was due to the possession of an evil spirit. But it’s wrong. If the spirit had been an evil one, the part of the body in question would have had a color or been hidden by a strange form of the spirit because the spiritual body of an evil spirit is very coarse.

  • be due to A Aが原因である
  • possession 憑依
  • in question 問題の
  • form 形象
  • coarse 荒い

When an ancestral spirit wants to let a descendant know his/her physical problem, the spirit covers up part of the descendant’s body to make it transparent on a picture. The spiritual body of an ancestral spirits who can protect its descendants is so clear as to make part of their descendant’s body transparent or invisible. In the case of evil spirits, on the other hand, the subject’s face is made black or an unnatural form appears in the picture.

  • let A 原形不定詞  Aに〜させる
  • so … as to~ 〜するくらい…
  • on the other hand 一方

In yesterday’s program, a picture of an elementary school student was shown. His face was deformed in the picture. This was due to lack of his parents’ memorial services for their ancestral spirits and a spirit of an aborted child. It’s easy for children to be affected by evil spirits, depending on the way their parents live.

  • deform 変形させる
  • be due to A Aが原因である
  • aborted 中絶した

In another picture, only clothes were appearing behind a subject. In this case, the phenomena was due to the work of a wondering spirit who didn’t want to surprise nor worry the subject yet wanted to attract attention. It’s just like a person who is fond of standing out is waving his hands before a television camera. The judges in the program made serious comments about this picture, but there’s no cause for worry, for evil spirits normally appear at the under part of a picture and evil gods at the upper part as strange forms.

  • wonder 彷徨う
  • yet にも関わらず
  • attract 引きつける
  • stand out 目立つ

The judges suggested that the picture be taken to a psychic to have it burned or purified. But this is not good because the owners of such pictures can fall preys to bad psychics. When you want to do something with ghost pictures, it’s best and safest to put it in an envelope and throw it away with other domestic waste. Do not try to burn it by yourself because it’s dangerous when an evil spirit gets out of the picture. Put it in a white envelope and seal it with glue or rice. Since evil spirits hate to be thrown away, it may make you forget the day of taking it out. So it’s better to put it in a garbage bag with other waste before collection day.

  • suggest 提案する
  • burn 燃やす
  • purify 浄化させる
  • fall prey 餌食になる
  • domestic 家庭用の
  • envelope 封筒

A picture in which an evil god appears can generate spontaneous combustion though not so often. So be careful about the place you put the garbage bag with ghost pictures in it before a garbage day. It’s better to put it on  a conspicuous place under which there is no combustibles so that you won’t forget forget the day you take it out. Also, if you go to a shrine or Buddhist temple to dispose of it  by car, you can have a car accident on the way. So it’s best to put it at a garbage collection area in the neighborhood.

  • spontaneous combustion 自然発火
  • garbage ゴミ
  • conspicuous 目立つ
  • Buddhist temple お寺
  • dispose of A  Aを処理する
  • on the way 途中で

You may think “Is this picture OK?” or “What about that picture?” But don’t worry. You are not affected by such strange pictures as long as you hold a memorial service for your ancestral spirits every day. All you have to do is throw such pictures or films away or delete them. What I mentioned above is my personal view. Please use it as reference. Comments about ghost pictures on TV might change from now on, don’t they?

  • memorial service 供養
  • delete 削除する
  • mention 言及する
  • reference 参考

Smart Students are Protected by Their Calm Ancestral Spirits

81pvowlMOmL

If I had been holding memorial services for my ancestors in the Ise-Hakusan Dou way when I was a high school student, I could have gotten into a more prestigious and less expensive and university.

  • get into A Aに入る
  • prestigious 有名な
  • expensive お金のかかる

With a spiritual body that gives off negative magnetism or a spiritual being that affects you, you couldn’t concentrate on anything though you think you are. Even if you sit in front of a  desk studying for a long time, you wouldn’t get good results in exams. You would be worrying about the future, reading a text book.

  • spiritual body 霊体
  • magnetism 磁気
  • concentrate 集中する
  • result 結果
  • exam 試験

It’s difficult for grown-ups to judge whether they are under the influence of spiritually negative magnetism because results of their work depend on their mood or social situations. But in the case of students, it’s easy to judge it because of their test scores. Getting good scores depends on luck as well. Now that  a lot of universities use computer scored answer sheets, it’s important whether you can have a flash of inspiration that enables you to notice trick questions.

  • grown-up 大人
  • influence 影響
  • as well  もまた
  • inspiration 直感
  • notice 気がつく

Looking at smart students with my psychic eyes, I find that most of them are protected by a lot of calm ancestral spirits, who watch over their descendants in order to keep them away from spirits giving off negative magnetism. They also lead their descendants to find good books or teachers. If they find the existence of bad classmates, they make efforts so that the classmates won’t approach their descendants. They work hard trying to protect their descendants just like grandparents cherish their grandchildren.

  • calm 落ち着いた
  • ancestral 先祖の
  • watch over A Aを見張る
  • descendant 子孫
  • effort 努力する
  • cherish 大事にする

By the way, a lot of university entrance examinees visit shrines to pray for success with their examinations in Japan, but this is no good custom because to visit a shrine for personal desires makes visitors under the influence of negative spiritual magnetism. They throw small change into offertory boxes and “order” God to realize their dreams. If you were God and small change is thrown at you to make you realize their desires, what would you think? Don’t you think it’s rude?

  • examinee 受験者
  • personal 個人的な
  • small change 小銭
  • order 命令する
  • rude 失礼な

In fact, Kenzoku-shins(眷属神), spiritual beings protecting God, are angry at such people’s rude behavior because people are trying to make God work, or use God, for their own sake. Do not think that God is to make your dreams come true, or you’ll have great spiritual handicaps. God never works to realize your small personal wishes. If your wish should be realized as the result of your prayer “unfortunately,” it’s not by God but by a partial spiritual being who is sure to demand something precious to you in return.

  • in fact 実際
  • handicap ハンデ
  • partial 不公平な
  • in return お返しに

If small change is thrown at your face by another person and you’re asked to do something for the person, you’ll get angry or ignore the demand. You must not do to God what you don’t want to be done to yourself. Do to God what you want to be done to yourself.

  • throw A at B AをBに投げつける
  • ignore 無視する
  • demand 要求

If you have some wish, you have only to appease your ancestral spirits by holding grateful memorial services for them. Appeased ancestral spirits become your guardian spirits and take care of you like your parents. However, do not ask a favor of your ancestral spirts because your request makes them worry or bewilders them and prevents them from resting in peace. They would force themselves to help you.

  • have only to~ 〜しさえすれば良い
  • appease 慰める
  • grateful  感謝の
  • guardian spirit 守護霊
  • ask a favor お願い事をする
  • bewilder 当惑させる

Once your ancestral spirits have got relief thanks to your grateful memorial services, their sense of relief makes yourself feel relieved in turn and a good environment where you can feel truly secured will be offered to you in this World of Reality. In this sense, it can be said that discords or wars never cease where there is no custom of holding memorial services for ancestral spirits.

  • get relief 楽になる
  • discord 不和
  • cease 止む
  • custom  慣習

Becoming Mentally Ill Stops Time

81pvowlMOmL

“It has become difficult for companies to borrow money from banks these days,” lots of people from my work say. It used to be easy for a company to borrow, say 20 million yen a month, from a bank. But now it’s impossible without putting up collateral or another guarantor.

  • borrow  借りる
  • these days 近頃
  • collateral 担保
  • guarantor 保証人

I hear that it is difficult for a person to convert a housing loan to another low interest one without an additional guarantor. An acquaintance of mine told me that he was told by a bank to make his wife’s father another guarantor in converting his present housing loan. He was angry about that.

  • convert 帰る
  • acquaintance 知人
  • angry 怒った

I also hear that more and more regional banks are going bankrupt in the U.S.. If banks in Japan go bankrupt and payoff system is introduced, presidents of small companies will be forced into difficult situations. I hope for the improvement of this kind of financial system.

  • more and more A ますます多くのA
  • regional bank 地方銀行
  • bankrupt  破産した
  • introduce 導入する
  • improvement 改善

By the way, I saw a documentary program on TV the other day, where a homeless man was being interviewed, whose job was to sell an information magazine, by a reporter. He stands on a street all day to sell the magazine he purchased and when he sells a copy, he can pocket about 100 yen as profit. He used to be a day laborer working at construction sites, but one day he broke his leg and got fired.

  • by the way ところで
  • all day 一日中
  • purchase 購入する
  • profit 利益
  • day labor 日雇い
  • construction 工事

The reporter said to him “It’s easy to receive welfare if you visit the public park where volunteers distribute boiled rice to day laborers.” The homeless man said “I won’t. I can still walk. If I receive welfare, I don’t think I can bring myself to work again.” Seeing him trying to live his hard life as far as he could, I felt admiration for him. From God’s perspective, he would look shining more than a man working for a big company complaining all the time.

  • welfare 生活保護
  • distribute 配る
  • admiration 感心
  • perspective 観点
  • shine 輝く

Problems occur one after another in this World of Reality. But as long as you keep your mind healthy, you problems never fail to change with time and your agony will be over. If you become mentally ill, in contrast, the lapse of time stops and you’ll go through hell. And when you die in this state of mind, your agony is fixed. So it’s important to take care of your mind all the time.

  • one after another 次から次へと
  • never fail to~ 必ず〜する
  • as long as S+V SがVする限り
  • in contrast 対照的に
  • lapse 経過
  • state 状態
  • fix 固定する

A practical method for maintaining yourself mentally is holding grateful memorial services for your ancestral spirits and yourself, which can discharge your unnecessary negative magnetism.

  • practical 実践的な
  • maintain 維持する
  • grateful 感謝の
  • discharge 放電させる

In holding a memorial service for your ancestors with the use of three incense sticks,

  1. Offer the first incense stick for your male ancestral spirts, then the second one for female ones.
  2. Offer the third one for other spirits related to you.

In offering them, don’t call a particular name because there are a lot of dead people you don’t know or you’re not aware of. If you call some name, you can’t appease other spirits or living spirits affecting you and as a result your memorial services become ineffective.

  • ancestor 先祖
  • particular 特定の
  • aware  気づいて
  • appease 慰める
  • affect 影響する
  • ineffective 効果がない

You don’t know all of the spirits related to you. So, all you have to do is do what you should in this world and leave the rest to the other world. Calm spirits take care of other spirits who need help, using the magnetism of your gratitude. If you have some dead person you’re especially worried about, just think of the person when you offer the third incense stick. If you’ve come to forget to think of him/her, it means the person has already rested in peace.

  • rest 残り
  • leave A to B AをBに任せる
  • calm 落ち着いた
  • especially 特に
  • rest 休息する

If you’re going through hardships, call your name and offer one more incense stick during the service, saying “YOUR FULL NAME, I am grateful for being kept alive” after offering the third incense stick. This is called a memorial service for yourself. But this is a method only for a special occasion where you’re mentally troubled. In normal cases, you don’t have to do this. This cheers you up spiritually. Do your best whatever happens. Everyone has had trying experiences.

  • hardships 困難
  • occasion 機会
  • cheer 元気付ける
  • trying 困難な

If you’re reluctant to hold a memorial service for your ancestors, it’s OK. You don’t need to. If you do it against your will, the memorial service becomes for the sake of yourself, not your ancestors. And you can get antsy all the more. It’s important that you hold a grateful memorial service for your ancestral spirits naturally when you feel like doing it.

  • reluctant 気が進まない
  • against one’s will 意思に反して
  • get antsy 不安になる

Being Positive Heals Sick Families and Friends

81pvowlMOmL

There seem a lot of people who have depressed and anguished feelings, caring about sick families. They have to know that they can’t cure others’ diseases however hard they worry. Worrying too much would damage their own health, which makes the situation much worse.

  • depressed 憂鬱な
  • anguished 苦悶の
  • relative 親戚
  • disease 病気
  • situation 状況

Diseases are a consequence of your state of mind. Modern medicine can deal with the consequence as a supportive measure. Techniques of modern medicine have developed largely to be sure, but the fundamental cause of diseases is still unknown and often not paid attention to. It’s been regarded as outside of medical science and in the field of psychology or religion somehow.

  • consequence 結果
  • state 状態
  • modern 現代の
  • fundamental 根本的な

This is because human beings don’t know why life arises, after all. If invisible human mind is unraveled by science, the universe, seemingly unrelated to human mind, will be unraveled, too.

  • arise 生じる
  • invisible 見えない
  • unravel 解明する
  • unrelated 無関係の

The universe has the only one mind, which is the same as yours. People can understand each other’s emotional pain. This is not so much because they have the ability to imagine as because they share the same mind. Imagine you have a family or friend suffering from a disease. At this very moment, your mind is near the person. So, if you lift up your heart and send your gratitude to the person, you can heal him/her without saying anything. This is what true spiritual healers do.

  • emotional 感情的な
  • ability 能力
  • share 共有する
  • imagine 想像する
  • suffer 苦しむ
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち

Or, what if your child is mentally ill? Then you must not be pessimistic about your child’s future, spending your time in a blue mood. Enjoy your life and live positively, which will do much good to your child. Your child may make sarcastic remarks like “You look happy don’t you, huh?” But, at the bottom of his/her heart, your child is feeling relieved.

  • pessimistic 悲観的な
  • positively 積極的に
  • sarcastic 皮肉な

Most traditional religions or spiritual methods are apt to make people feel gloomy. They oppress people and make them depressed, for if the believers or clients should awaken and become light of heart, such religious groups or healers can’t make money or maintain their organizations by threatening or instilling a feeling of fear into them. Also, nonsensical incantations are no better than a placebo. It can only give you a false, temporary feeling of relief.

  • traditional 従来の
  • gloomy 陰鬱な
  • oppress 抑圧する
  • threaten 脅す
  • instill 植え付ける
  • incantation 呪文
  • false 偽の

You are like an end of a rope extending from the one and only mind, namely the Primordial Being. The part between you and the mind is like your ancestors. If the rope had been broken, you wouldn’t be here. Even if it’s not broken, the loosen fibers of the rope make the end loose.  Holding grateful memorial services for your ancestral spirits and reminding yourself of gratitude toward the one and only mind bunches the loosen fibers together and braces up the whole rope.

  • fiber 繊維
