Do not Depend on Things or Persons Other Than You

81pvowlMOmL

There are a lot of people who don’t believe in themselves. They assume that they aren’t good enough, depending on others or religions, trying to escape from reality. They should know that it’s no use trying to depend on others. Each human being is like a universe. Such a mental attitude, which distracts their consciousness from their own universes, would cause themselves huge losses and paralyze their universes.

  • assume 思い込む
  • depend 頼る
  • attitude 態度
  • distract 逸らす
  • loss 損失

Why is it no use trying to depend on others? Why does such a mental attitude do you harm? Because you’ll die alone. The more dependant on others you are, the more pain you’ll suffer when you die.

  • harm 害
  • dependant 依存的な
  • suffer 苦しみ

Imagine that your spiritual guru inculcates you with a doctrine that he will appear before you when you’re about to die. Because he doesn’t appear on your deathbed, you’ll despair and continue to suffer even after death. You have to know that however hard you wait for the guru, he never appears.

  • imagine 想像する
  • inculcate  教え込む
  • doctrine 教義
  • despair 絶望する

Also, if you believe the doctrine that God is outside of you, you’ll be panicked too when you’re on the point of death. Because God never appears before you at that time. The fact is not what you think it is. It is mostly your ancestral spirits you have never seen that appear on your deathbed. Though you’ve never seen them, you’ll be able to recognize them as  your ancestors somehow. Or there may be some ancestors you know there.

  • mostly 大抵は
  • ancestral   先祖の
  • recognize 認識する

All human beings are born in this World of Reality through their parents, or ancestors. In the same way, when they leave this world, they are to meet their ancestors. There is no one who comes into being without their ancestors.

  • in the same way 同様に
  • ancestor 先祖

When you go back to the other world through a dimensional wall , you go through a spiritual line of your family line. After passing through the dimensional wall, your soul heads for another world, according to the level of your soul.

  • dimensional 次元
  • head for A Aに向かう

Those are blessed who realize deeply that something great exists in themselves as Inner God, for when they leave this world, the lights of gods related to them will accompany them, together with their ancestral spirits. So, if you want to live always conscious of your Inner God, live life in this World of Reality, interacting with others, and ponder the meaning of the following words:

  • blessed 幸いな
  • Inner God 内在神
  • ponder よく考える
  • meaning 意味

I Ka Shi Te I Ta Da I Te  A Ri Ga To U Go Za I Ma Su

I AM GRATEFUL FOR BEING KEPT ALIVE

Great Men Are Great Men. I Am What I Am.

天津 神様

When you hear that there is a person with a special, strange power or a great or amazing person, you will feel like relying on such a person. But, you won’t be able to stop feeling uneasy no matter how hard you try to ask for help without directing your mind to your Inner God. Your life will never change with or without a great person.

  • feel like ~ing 〜したい気がする
  • rely on A  Aに頼る
  • feel uneasy 不安に思う
  • ask for A Aを求める

When you’re told something you don’t know and have something of a spiritual experience for the first time, feeling elation, you may think that you’ve got a sense of security at the time. However, you’ll find in time that such an experience was nothing but a sham. People trying to rely on gurus receiving money are wasting their money and time. Some of them, looking back in ten years, will find themselves in worse situations than before and begin to think that ordinary people who don’t try to rely on anything are happier compared with themselves. Others who have relied on something outside themselves for life, when they feel that their life will soon be over, will begin to feel scared of the simple fact that they have to die alone. People like these cannot meet God that they believed would come to meet them and die alone insecure, so that they will be attracted to a insecure world like magnets.

  • something of a A ちょっとしたA
  • elation 高揚
  • sense of security 安心感
  • sham まやかし
  • waste 無駄にする
  • insecure 不安な
  • attract 引きつける

Well, not to be like that, it’s important for you to direct your mind to the Great Being in your heart all the time. However, if I suggest that you believe in something great inside yourself, you’ll find it hard to believe it. If so, what I’m saying to you would be an empty theory. So, why don’t you start to hold memorial services for your ancestors with gratitude ? When you do that, you’ll understand that your ancestral spirits emitting negative waves begin to decrease in number, for they are relieved by your memorial services. You might be worried to think that if you hold memorial services for other spirits as well as your ancestral spirits, you could attract evil spirits too, but this is not the case. As long as you live, you cannot avoid being related to other spirits than your ancestral ones. Spirits coming near you in holding a memorial service are only ones related to you. Unless you do something about your ancestral spirits in pain, you’re to live under the influence of spiritual magnetism, which is a great handicap to your life.

  • suggest 提案する
  • empty 虚しい
  • theory 理論
  • emit 放つ
  • evil  悪い

If you live your life trying your best without being influenced by this negative spiritual magnetism, you’ll come to feel something important you haven’t noticed. You’ll come to feel that you’ve been kept alive thank to a lot of people. And you’ll go on to realize in your daily lives that God exists in all and everything. Then you’ll realize God exists in yourself too. In such a state of mind, you’d know what the true sense of security is.

  • influence 影響
  • magnetism 磁気
  • come to~ 〜するようになる
  • be kept alive 生かされている
  • thanks to A  Aのお陰で
  • go on to~ 次に〜する
  • exist 存在する
  • sense of security 安心感

Even if you reach this state of mind, problems occur in life while you’re alive. But you’ll be able to accept them with gratitude. When you’re going to die, you can accept it as it is together with your Inner God. You’re sure to go to a secure world.

  • accept 受け入れる
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • as it is そのまま

I Ka Shi Te I Ta Da I Te    A Ri Ga To U Go Za I Ma Su

Thank you so much for keeping us alive.

Souls surely go back to their hometowns.

いざわのみや写真

I’ve remembered a female guru I met in Showa era who was a founder of a religious group. I got acquainted with her when I was in my twenties and had dinner with her several times. She was already an aged woman.

  • guru 教祖
  • era 時代
  • founder 創始者
  • religious 宗教の
  • get acquainted with A Aと知り合いになる

She moved to Tokyo from Kyushu when she was young, but she couldn’t get any full-time job because of her poor educational background. So she got a part-time job at a large hospital and worked as a helper of the sick for a long time. She seems to have gone through hardships.

  • educational background  学歴
  • hardships 苦難

According to her story, she was present at hundreds of people’s final moments who didn’t have any relatives to depend upon. She was the only person who was present at their deathbeds. Having no one to depend upon, such people led a variety of unordinary lives. Some of them had Tattoos on their bodies.

  • hundreds of A 何百ものA
  • relative 親戚
  • deathbed 臨終
  • a variety of A 様々なA
  • unordinary 普通でない

Their sleeping faces as they were dying unconscious were pure and simple like that of an innocent child. Some of them talked in a delirium unconsciously about their souls leaving their bodies and coming back to their hometowns, saying “Ah, I can see the grove of the village shrine,” or ” I can hear the sound of summer festival” and so on.

  • unconscious 無意識の
  • innocent 罪のない
  • in a delirium うわ言で
  • hometown 故郷
  • the grove of the village shrine 鎮守の森
  • festival 祭り
  • and so on など

Souls, just after dying, seem to go back once to where they were born and raised though memories of the place are often forgotten while people are alive. And then, in 49 days, they leave for a world according to the way they lived in this world just as objects are attracted by a magnet.

  • raise 育てる
  • alive 生きている
  • leave for A Aに向けて出発する
  • according to A Aに従って
  • attract 引き付ける

Life seems to be long, but actually it’s short. There are a lot of unpleasant things and sad things in this world. So are a lot of good things. They’re all gifts for you. I hope you take them all with gratitude. If you are choosy, you might miss precious ones. All you have to do is accept all of them with gratitude.

  • seem to be ~ 〜であるように見える
  • unpleasant 嫌な
  • sad 悲しい
  • gift 贈り物
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • precious 大切な
  • All you have to do is ~ あなたは〜しさえすればよい
  • accept 受け入れる
