Mission in Tokyo – PART 4

On the second day of my stay in Tokyo, I finished a job at a client company, working hard from morning till evening. At night, having been secretly asked to attend a party held by the publishing company, I went back to my hotel to change into a suit and left for the party.

  • client company 取引先
  • change into A Aに着替える

The party was a famous one, which about a thousand prominent figures in politics and the business world attend every year. The editor had been requesting me to feel the atmosphere of the party and tell him about the future of Japan. The editor was so worried about Japan that I said yes.

  • prominent 著名な
  • figure 人物
  • request A t0~ Aに〜するよう要請する
  • atmosphere 雰囲気

Arriving at the party, I found a lot of famous people I had often seen on TV. I couldn’t remember their names, though. They were not so impressive as I had imagined. They were all normal people. The aura of the party was not bright, with most of them in the shackles of material culture, which suggested that Japan’s economic future would be dark.

  • impressive 印象的な
  • imagine 想像する
  • shackle 束縛
  • economic 経済の

During the bubble economy period, the place for the party would have been shiny and loud. Seeing the color of the aura of the party made me realize that the age of the spirit had already begun. During this age, business people who focus on money only and have no intention to manifest their own Inner Gods would have hard times.

  • the bubble economy バブル経済
  • loud 派手な
  • focus 焦点を当てる
  • intention 意図

What I felt during my stay in Tokyo is that everyone were anxious about what they’re going to. Some were anxious to know the meanings of their past incidents. That is, most people were lacking in the viewpoint of “now”. They didn’t live their present lives wholeheartedly, taking the present time for granted.

  • anxious about A Aについて心配して
  • incident 出来事
  • lack 欠く
  • wholeheartedly 心を込めて
  • take A for granted  Aを当たり前に思う

If you live like that, your future will be wasted, for the future is made up of the present time. It is not until you live your life to the full, even if worrying about the future, that you can open up the rock door inside yourself to manifest your Inner God. You must not have your fortune told by a corrupt fortune teller to make your mind stable, or you will have all the more difficulty in opening the door.

  • waste 無駄にする
  • to the full 存分に
  • corrupt 堕落した
  • fortune teller 占い師
  • stable 安定した

On the day I left Tokyo, I walked on the streets of Ginza to buy some souvenirs, where there were a lot luxury cars, such as Maybach rarely been seen in the country. Thinking that there must be a lot of rich people living in Tokyo, I looked up at the sky, when I saw a big crow whose wings seemed about one meter long flying in the same direction as I was walking. “The crow must be flying toward the Imperial Palace, ” I thought. Did the crow plop on a Maybach? I don’t know.

  • souvenir 土産
  • luxury 高級な
  • crow カラス
  • direction 方向
  • Imperial Palace 皇居
  • plop 糞をする

Questions and answers (26)-(28)


Question 26:

What do you think of having my previous life read by a psychic or reaching back into the memory of my previous life by hypnotism ?

  • previous life 前世
  • psychic 霊能者
  • reach back into A Aを辿る
  • hypnotism 催眠術


It’s no good. You have to digest Karma of your previous lives step by step, but doing so can make Karma happen to you all at once. It means you yourself make up Karma which causes a blueprint you draw up before you’re born to go wrong. Compilation of your previous lives is “now.” If you attribute the present discontent to your previous life, you will give rise to unnecessary Karma and also add to handicap greatly.

  • digest 消化する
  • step by step 一つ一つ
  • all at once 一度に
  • mean 意味する
  • cause A to~ Aが〜する原因となる
  • go wrong おかしくなる
  • blueprint 設計図
  • draw up A Aを描く
  • compilation 集大成
  • attribute A to B Aの原因をBにあるとする
  • the present 現在の
  • discontent 不満
  • give rise to A Aを引き起こす
  • unnecessary 不必要な
  • add to A Aを増加させる

Almost all the psychics who receive money from people who come to them for advice cannot read their past lives exactly. Because such deed itself is far from the right one, seen from the eyes of the righteous god.

  • receive 受け取る
  • exactly 正確に
  • deed 行い
  • be far from A Aからかけ離れている
  • righteous 正しい

Keep on reminding yourself of gratitude, and you will wake up spiritually and come to stop minding your previous lives naturally,for you will begin to find by instinct that the present time is the most important.

  • keep on ~ing 〜し続ける
  • remind oneself of A  Aを想起する
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • wake up 目覚める
  • mind 気にかける
  • naturally 自然に
  • by instinct 本能的に

The present life includes reflections of all the previous lives. All the solutions to the problems caused in your previous lives lie in this life as challenges to overcome. So you don’t have to go back to the past. Your persistence to the previous lives can cause the order of those challenges in this life you set up to be destroyed.

  • include 含む
  • reflection 反映
  • solution  解決策
  • cause 引き起こす
  • lie in A Aの中に在る
  • chllenge 課題
  • overcome 乗り越える
  • go back to A Aに戻る
  • persistence 固執
  • order 順番
  • set up A Aを設定する

It is no use wandering your past lives. Now is the time you have to look at. Knowing the previous lives often makes your star wane, which puts unnecessary Karma in motion.

  • It is no use ~ing 〜してみても無駄だ
  • wander 訪ね歩く
  • star 運気
  • wane 弱まる
  • put A in motion Aを発動させる

Question 27:

What do you think of concepts of an unlucky year, fortune, fate etc?

  • concept 概念
  • unlucky year 厄年
  • fortune 運勢
  • fate 運気


You can change them all by reminding yourself of gratitude. Future is not fixed. You can change your fate by making efforts. Now that terrestrial magnetism has changed greatly, the study of destiny, which is a kind of statistics in the old age,  can’t be helpful at all. If you mind your future, you’ll be lost. If you make it a reference for the future, the consequences will be bad. You can be much happier in fact by relieving you ancestors’ spirits and creating your life for yourself than leading such a passive life.

  • fix 固定する
  • make efforts 努力する
  • now that S+V SがVする今
  • terrestrial magnetism 地磁気
  • the study of destiny 運命学
  • statistics 統計
  • helpful 役に立つ
  • be lost 迷う
  • reference 参考
  • consequence 結果
  • relieve 安心させる
  • create 創造する
  • for oneself 自分で
  • passive 受け身的な

Question 28:

I have some questions about lucky charms or objects which are said to have some mysterious power? I have doubted about those things for a long time. How should we deal with those healing goods?

  • lucky charm 開運グッズ
  • object 物
  • doubt 疑う
  • deal with A Aを扱う


As a matter of fact, those things make the owners’ life force wane. Those make them feel discontent and unstable and lead them to buy another.

  • as a matter of fact 実際問題として
  • life force 生命力
  • owner 所有者
  • wane 弱まる
  • lead A to~ Aに〜するよう仕向ける

Human beings have their own spiritual color. That kind of goods for commercial ends taking on magnetism of greed make the owner’s spiritual color of their own blur and their fortune decline.

  • human beings 人間
  • commercial ends  商業目的
  • take on A Aを帯びる
  • greed 貪欲
  • blur  ぼやける
  • decline 低下する

Keeping a cool head, you will see that you have come to get unstable and irritated more easily than before since you’ve got such spiritual goods. Once you have been stained completely with spiritual colors of those goods, you can’t make a level-headed decision and try to collect various healing goods one after another like an addict.

  • keep a cool head 冷静さを保つ
  • unstable 不安定な
  • irritated イライラした
  • once S+V いったんSがVしたら
  • stain 染める
  • completely 完全に
  • level-headed decision 冷静な判断
  • collect 集める
  • various 様々な
  • one after another 次から次へと
  • addict 中毒者
