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.

God in Each of You Has Begun to Influence the World of Reality

I feel that the acceleration of time has begun in other dimensions, or worlds, as well as in the World of Reality. When I wen to see another dimension, leaving my physical body in the World of Reality, I would often feel there was no time or that time stopped there. 

When your life in this world is over,  you soul is attracted to a dimension like a magnet, according to the level of your soul. And in the dimension, your soul is fixed with the state of your mind being the same as that in the World of Reality.

Your soul spends a lot of time in the dimension that has no change or time. So if you want to improve the situations in the other world, you need to be born into this World of Reality, where there are many risks to weaken your soul though they happen to you so that your soul can develop.

What I’ve just described above is the conventional explanation about the World of Reality and other dimensions. However, I feel that some change or time seems to have begun in other dimensions, too.

What happens the next?  You’ll have the consequences of what you did, whether it is good or bad, very fast in this World of Reality. Your way of life and good will or ill will influence your present state of mind immediately.

Your physical body will also change for the better or worse very fast as a result of spiritual change. You are moving into the new age that the present state of mind influences the body directly. Some cancer patients will get worse quickly and others will get better drastically.

What you have to do, especially in this age, is to believe in, and take care of, yourself. To live depending on others due to the lack of confidence is to abandon yourself. It’s wrong to have faith in “outer gods” other than your Inner God and to be dependent on a self-claimed spiritual teacher.

Spiritual teachers who work miracles in exchange for a lot of money are 100 % substitutes for devils. They make people in trouble dependent and lacking in confidence. They don’t know they themselves are made to do so by the devils.

Those who abandoned themselves will be abandoned by their own body cells. That is, they are going to fall ill. Believe in Inner God inside yourself, no matter how bad your present situations are or how weak your body is. Be determined to accept any difficulty together with your Inner God. If you are lucky enough not to face any difficulty, then try to be grateful to Inner God for your present situations.

In the future ahead, Inner God in each one of you will begin to have influence concretely on the World of Reality. Inner God never fails you and accompanies you to the other world. You have to realize the fact that you are already in the state of the absolute security, always embraced by God. Various things happen to you just to make you realize that.

Faith Mediated by Other People No Longer Works

Bad new religions and psychics have to make money in order to maintain their organizations or lead a luxurious life. They use God not for their believers but for themselves. They work for money against their conscience. They care nothing about the people who visit them for help. If the believers feel great security and become happy, the gurus or psychics become unnecessary. This is why they make those in trouble temporarily happy and then unhappy again and again, stirring up trouble to get credit from the solution.

  • religion  宗教
  • maintain 維持する
  • organization 組織
  • luxurious 贅沢な
  • conscience 良心
  • this is why S+V  こういうわけでSはVする

Some gurus or psychics know what they’re doing and others don’t. Gods never support spiritual teachers working to maintain their organizations. What they do to make money to maintain their groups is like this:

● They make their believers scared, saying bad things are going to happen to them.

● They squeeze money out of their believers, suggesting the world or nation is in danger.

In short, it is wrong to form a religious group or to become a full-time psychic in the name of God. Such conducts make them away from true gods.

  • support 応援する
  • scared 怖い
  • squeeze 搾り取る
  • suggest 暗に示す
  • be in danger 危険にさらされている
  • full-time 専業の
  • conduct 行い

Such religious groups and psychics separated from true gods will be possessed by evil spirits. No other profit groups are better than bad new religions for evil spirits, who enjoy fear and greed of human beings. They consume negative energy such as sexual desire between believers, sadness of family members who have their family life ruined, sorrow by the believers who have become broke because of religious activities and so on. Devotees of such religious groups are nothing but immolations.

  • possess 憑依する
  • fear 恐怖
  • greed 貪欲
  • sadness 悲しみ
  • immolation 餌食

It is true that spiritual leaders, gurus or psychics who screw money out of those in trouble are possessed with evil spirits, no matter how much they appear to be good persons. Spiritual possession enables them to commit such bad deeds. They will keep producing such pathetic believers to earn their livings. They don’t know they themselves are bound to fall victims to the evil spirits in the end. They will see the true identity of the evil spirits at their deathbeds and, frozen with fear, be recalled from the World of Reality.

  • screw 搾り取る
  • pethetic 哀れな
  • earn 稼ぐ
  • be bound to~ ~する運命にある
  • victim 犠牲者
  • frozen 凍って
  • recall  回収する

It is natural and can’t be helped that greedy people are exploited by bad religions or psychics whom they got in contact with. But it’s very sad that their relatives or children who share the same family line are also affected. If they had had nothing to do with such religions or psychics, their living environment would have become much better.

  • natural 当然な
  • exploit 搾取する
  • get in contact with A Aと接触する
  • relative 親戚
  • affect 影響する
  • environment 環境

Keep away from any negative handicap that wastes your life energy and money. Spiritual light in the electromagnetic waves of the sun will divide companies, people and religions in two: those with conscience and those with no conscience.

  • waste 無駄にする
  • electromagnetic wave 電磁波
  • divide 分ける

It’s important that you hold a memorial service for your ancestral spirits at home to appease them every day, which deed develops your conscience, and remind yourself of gratitude to gods. The new age has already begun when the faith mediated by other people no longer works. True gods need no money. You have to know that, once you get involved with a fee-based psychic, it becomes impossible for the holy energy to approach you.

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.

In the World of Reality only Efforts can Improve the Situations

A reader of this blog said, “Am I allowed to say ‘I’m grateful for being kept alive’ ?Because I live in misery and I don’t think I’m grateful for my present situations.” I replied “Repeat the phrase even if you don’t believe it.” Another reader said that she hated her husband so much that she could kill him. I replied “Say the phrase to him in silence for all your hatred against your husband.”

  • allow 許す
  • misery 悲惨
  • reply 答える
  • hate 憎む
  • for all A Aにも関わらず

Even if you keep on thinking “I’m miserable,” or “I hate him,” you can never change the reality. On the contrary, you will end up wearing negative magnetism all the more and your situations will get worse. It’s no use waiting for the time you can be grateful for the present situations. You have to make a move.

  • reality 現実
  • on the contrary それどころか
  • end up ~ing 結局は〜することになる
  • It is no use ~ing 〜してみても無駄だ
  • make a move 行動する

The World of Reality is where making efforts is important. Even when you are suffering from poverty, illness or hatred against someone, repeat the phrase “I am grateful for being kept alive,” which I received from the World of Gods, and you’ll come to see things objectively from the point of view of life and death and your hatred will disappear because the phrase is very powerful.

  • effort 努力
  • suffer 苦しむ
  • objectively 客観的に
  • disappear 消える

The souls of Amaterasu-o-ho-mi-kami (天照太御神)and Kunitokotachi-o-kami (国常立太神)dwell in the phrase “I am grateful for being kept alive”, or in Japanese “Ikashiteitadaite arigatougozaimasu.” To say the words is to call the names of the gods. In response to the call, the gods appear from the universe of your heart as Kanzeon Bosatsu(観世音菩薩), a bodhisattva of mercy and salvation, to save you.

  • dwell 住む
  • in response to A Aに応じて
  • save 救う

There is a tale in Buddhism called the Burning House. In the tale, some children are playing in a burning house without noticing the critical situation. Though an adult standing outside the house is telling the children to get out, they refuse to listen to him. Seeing the state of emergency, Kanzeon Bosatsu appears as a child of the same age and says to them “Hey, come outside! I’ve found three great toys. Amazing!” Then, the children come out of the house, dubious of what he said and they are all saved.

  • tale 説話
  • burning 燃えている
  • critical 重大な
  • refuse 拒む
  • emergency 緊急
  • amazing 凄い
  • dubious 疑わしい

To help someone, you need to tell necessary lies in some cases for the sake of the person. You have to believe that the mercy of God does exist in this world. It shows itself through your ancestral spirits, who watch over you all the time. With efforts, it would all work out OK.

  • for the sake of A  Aのために
  • mercy 慈悲
  • watch over A Aを見守る

A Lot of People Do the Opposite of Truth

Office workers are sometimes scolded by their bosses for unreasonable reasons. In such a case,  I’m willing to be scolded. Looking into his eyes, I give responses to what he’s saying. But you have to be careful not to do so too frequently because your attitude can be offensive.

  • scold  叱る
  • be willing to~ 進んで〜する
  • rensponse 反応
  • attitude 態度
  • offensive 相手を害する

It makes him more angry for you to say what you have to say while he’s scolding you. So, it’s better to say what you want to say briefly only after your boss has finished saying what he wants to say. You don’t need make him understand all of your say on the spot because you’ll have to get along well with him from this time on. It’s not your words but your behavior and attitude that matter at workplace.

  • briefly 簡潔に
  • on the spot その場で
  • matter 重要である
  • workplace 職場

If you’re right, what you said will turn out to be right sooner of later. When your boss finds what you said to him is right, he’ll remember your responses and attitude at the time. I don’t get angry even when I’m scolded by my boss for an unreasonable reason. During that time, I think about his everyday life or background. Seeing that he easily gets mad at trifle things, he must be full of stress and I feel sorry for him.

  • sooner or later 遅かれ早かれ
  • unreasonable 納得の行かない
  • get mad 怒る
  • trifle 些細な
  • feel sorry 可哀想に思う

People often suffer from their own “poison.” What tortures them is themselves, not others. The same thing can be said about people suffering from spirit possession. The more afraid you are of spirits, or the more you try to avoid them, the more spiritual dirt you’ll attract. “I want to avoid unpleasant beings,” “I wish I were the only one who enjoy happiness,” “I want useless people to keep away from me,” – this kind of selfish way of thinking attracts wandering spirits. Also, the desire that you want to attract only good things and what you want attracts evil spirits, too.

  • suffer 苦しむ
  • tortunre 苦しめる
  • possession 憑依
  • attract 引きつける
  • evil 邪悪な

Just trying to give something to others brings you good fortune, for spirits who want to give in the same way as you do will come near to you. More often than not, small business owners can’t make profit as long as they desire to make a lot of money. This is because such strong desire shows itself in their businesses or their attitudes to employees. Customers will sense their desire and won’t feel like buying their products somehow.

  • fortune 運
  • more often than not しばしば
  • employee 従業員
  • feel like ~ing 〜したい気がする

Also, if you believe in God, it’s no good to ask God for help all the time. It is those who want to make God happy, support God and offer gratitude to God that will be given delight, helped and thanked by others. There are a lot of people who do the opposite of truth.

  • ask A for B  AにBをくれと頼む
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • delight 喜び
  • opposite 逆

Now that the dark world where true gods have hidden themselves is over, the original right kind of current or world will get back. There are a lot of religions or customs that will backfire. It’s important for you to be grateful for your present situations and what you’ve taken for granted and make decisions with a heart to give.

Do not Separate The Dead from God

In India, where Sakyamuni was born, there has been no custom of building gravestones since ancient times. They burn dead bodies and throw the ashes into the sea. It’s natural and reasonable that living things that were born on the land return to the sea because all creatures were born in the sea in ancient times and moved onto the land. I feel the custom of the deceased returning to the sea through the river reflects the world view of Shinto. There is no tomb in India, while a lot of tombs in Japan, the final destination of Buddhism.

  • custom  慣習
  • gravestone 墓石
  • reflect 反映する
  • world view 世界観
  • destination 目的地

Sakyamuni wouldn’t understand any Japanese Buddhist rituals for the dead. He doesn’t even know the Buddhist sutras written in Japanese at all. He would be surprised to hear Buddhist monks chanting them because they are meaningless, phonetic equivalents. Almost all of Buddhist sutras were made up hundreds of years after he passed away.

  • ritual  儀式
  • meaningless  意味のない
  • phonetic equivalent 当て字
  • pass away 亡くなる

Buddhists, however, believe in Buddhism or Buddhist scriptures just because they believe in Sakyamuni. The truth is the Japanese Buddhism lacks spiritual ground. They bury the dead under the name of Sakyamuni on the basis of Buddhist scriptures he doesn’t know, which is horrible. It’s no wonder they can’t send the deceased to the other world in the right way.

  • lack 欠く
  • on the basis of A Aに基づいて
  • horrible ひどい
  • no wonder 驚きではない
  • the other world あの世

Well, how did Japanese people treat the dead before the Buddhist custom of building gravestones diffused all over Japan? I feel that people in those days used to put dead bodies on the ground away from their houses and covered them with earth. When someone dies, they lay the dead body next to another and cover it with earth. If the space for the dead bodies reaches its limit, they put them onto other ones. As the result, the accumulation of dead bodies became like a small hill, which is the prototype of ancient tumuluses for the Emperor. A huge tumulus like a small hill was built for each emperor and its form was the result of accumulation of interments.

  • treat 扱う
  • diffuse 広まる
  • earth 土
  • limit 限界
  • prototype 原型
  • tumulus 古墳
  • interment 土葬

Japanese people in ancient times believed that death is returning to nature, and that the deceased become part of nature, or God. The essence of Shintoism is offering gratitude to Great Nature(=God)that gives them everything. So they offererd gratitude to the dead, too. This is why they devoted the magnetism of gratitude to ancestral spirits on a stated day or in a stated season in accordance with the movement of the sun.

  • essense 本質
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • stated 決まった
  • ancestral 先祖の
  • accordance 一致

Modern Buddhism is very costly and perform unnecessary rituals. It’s a shame that they lack the point of view, or the deeds, of offering gratitude to the dead. I hope all Buddhist sects adopt rituals that express gratitude to the dead and hold rituals at local temples to pray for the repose of the deceased. It’s unavoidable that Buddhist temples are dependant on  contributions from local people for their living expenses. I think it’s necessary for them to conduct activities based on their conscience so that local people can contribute to the temple of their own accord.

  • costly お金がかかる
  • unnecessary 不必要な
  • shame 残念な
  • deed 行い
  • conscience 良心
  • contribute 献金する

It was a mistake for Shintoism to hand over its role to hold funerals to Buddhism. Since Shintoism separated the dead from God due to the concept of impurity, Shintoism has lost its true ancient spirituality. I think Shinto Shrines have developed in such a way that they keep God to themselves and treat God as if God were a patented article.

  • hand over A Aを手渡す
  • funeral 葬式
  • impurity 汚れ
  • keep A to oneself Aを独り占めする
  • patented 特許を取られた

As more and more schools of Shintoism make up their original prayers, they have come to be self-assertive. Such prayers are meaningless for God. Ohara-e-no-kotoba(大祓詞) is the only prayer that reaches the World of Gods. It’s important to restore the deeds of offering gratitude to both God and the dead without separating them.

  • prayer 祝詞
  • self-assertive 独善的な
  • offer 捧げる
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち

Unconditional Love is Too Big to Recognize

You are living in this World of Reality. This fact itself is a miracle and it proves that God exists. People die easily. When I was an elementary school child, I would often catch frogs and crayfishes to keep them in a glass tank at home. I could keep them alive for only a few months. I let them die over and over because of my lack of knowledge. In the glass tank(=a universe), only death occurred, not birth. I was not God for the creatures.

  • miracle  奇跡
  • prove 証明する
  • exist 存在する
  • crayfish ザリガニ
  • lack 欠如
  • occur 起こる

How about this World of Reality? Creatures are born, grow up, give birth to their children and die, and the children grow up, give birth to their children and die. The cycle of life and death goes on and on without any breaks. Especially humans try to live as long as possible. Some people take these for granted and think that everything is a product of chance. But it’s easy to deny them, for the modern science shows that there is no such planet as the earth in the universe. The planet earth is quite rare. The Great Creator is watching over it.

  • give birth to A Aを産む
  • go on 続く
  • break 中断
  • especially 特に
  • product 産物
  • chance 偶然
  • deny 否定する
  • rare 珍しい

Birth of a baby is a miracle, but the fact that the baby grows up for a few years after the birth is also a miracle because a baby can’t live without any assistance from others. That is, there was unconditional love there. You all experienced, and have been experiencing, miracles. Unconditional love of God, who keeps alive all creatures and the earth, is too big to recognize. It’s beyond the cognitive capability of human beings. The affectionate ruler,or God, will be satisfied to see human beings trying to live between heaven and earth through good times and bad.

  • go through A Aを経験する
  • assistance 援助
  • unconditional 無条件の
  • recognize 認識する
  • cognitive 認知の
  • affectionate 愛情深い
  • satisfied 満足して

As long as you live, you are destined to experience things associated with sex, aging, illness and death. All of them are hints for developing your conscience. In the profound sense, there is no misfortune in this world, for everything passes and changes for sure. There’s nothing to be afraid of. After death, unfair things that happened to you never fail to turn into fortunate ones because of a universal law that makes the accounts of good and bad balance.

  • as long as S+V SがVする限り
  • destine 運命付けられて

Diary on a Trip to Ise and Mt.Hakusan – PART 11

Standing in front of the main building of Hakusan Chukyo Shrine(白山中居神社), I felt spiritual vibrations of ancient deities. They were those of Izanagi(イザナギ) and Izanami(イザナミ)or of the whole mountain. In large shrines that have fain in Mt.Hakusan, rituals for Izanagi and Izanami are performed. It was in the later years that Kukurihime-shin(ククリヒメ神)was added to the main deities Izanagi and Izanami. Originally, Hakusan Shrines were shrines where only Izanagi and Izanami were worshipped.Kukurihime-shin had been concealed for a long time as the secret deity who harmonized her parents, Izanagi and Izanami.

  • ancient 古代の
  • whole 全体の
  • ritual 儀式
  • originally 元々は
  • worship 崇拝する
  • conceal 隠す
  • harmonize 調和させる

According to Japanese myths, Izanagi and Izanami gave birth to all deities belonging to Amatsu-kami (天津神)and Kunitsu-kami(国津神) and produced the land of Japan. However, just as Izanagi and Izanami are not especially worshipped in Ise Grand Shrine, most present shrines that worship deities belonging to Amatsu-kami don’t make much of them.

  • myth 神話
  • give birth to A Aを産む
  • produce 生み出す
  • make much of A Aを重要視する

In the present shinto shrines, various rites and rituals are performed not with Izanagi and Izanami being the main deities but with Kukurihime-shin being such. In Hakusan shrines, in contrast, Izanagi and Izanami have been worshipped as their main deities since ancient times. It can be said that Mt. Hakusan is the mountain where Izanagi and Izanami still rest.

Then I went to a small shrine on the right side of the main building where Amaterasu-o-ho-mi-kami was worshipped, when I got the same vision of a sundisc as the one I get in Ise.  And at another small shrine whose main deity was Ninigi shin(ニニギ神), I felt the same kind of holy energy. Also, at a small shrine near the entrance of Hakusan Chukyo Shrine whose main deity was Sarutahiko-shin(猿田彦神), I sensed a holy energy.

Such a shrine is rare in that all small shrines in the precincts are active. Though there are a lot of shrines whose main deity is Ninigi-shin all over Japan, this was the first one where I could feel the holy energy. It is unfortunate that most of them have become so polluted with visitors’ energy of greed that I can’t feel any holy energy there.

Hakusan Chukyo Shrine is where all stars of deities who descended to earth in ancient times, which is called Tensonkorin(天孫降臨), including Izanagi and Izanami, still reiside and rest. It can be the main stage for the second Tensonkorin. It is interesting that Geku(外宮) of Ise Grand Shrine and Hakusan Chukyo Shrine were both founded during the reign of Emperor Yuryaku(雄略天皇). I feel that here lies the divine will of Kuni-tama(国魂), the guardian deity of a country who steers the state behind the scenes.

As the line between Mt.Hakusan and Ise on which holy energy falls “opens up,” this shrine will be more and more famous. It is when a lot of people visit this shrine and Ise that these places are spiritually connected and a new door of the World of Gods will open. This is what was designed by God a long, long time ago. When this happens, all conflicts will be resolved in harmony, such as conflicts between Amatsu-kami and Kunitsu-kami, nations, people, family members and so on.

It seems that intervention from the future into the present is needed for children of the future to be born. This has to do with the advent of UFOs, which suggests the intervention from the future. In Japanese myths, Kukurihime-shin disappears suddenly after mediating the quarrels of her parents, never to appear. After her disappearance, a lot of deities were born. That is, she came from the future beyond time and space to save her parents. This is the reason she had to disappear.

If you can afford to make a round trip between Ise and Mt.Hakusan, you may be the one that came from the future with the mission to harmonize human beings. I want you to do this with care as a representative for those who cannot afford to or all human beings.

  • can afford to~ 〜する余裕がある
  • round trip 往復

  • representative 代表

Even If you cannot afford to for some reasons, there’s no problem. All you have to do is cleanse your spiritual line and remind yourself of gratitude, which contribute to the world. It’s also important to visit the shrine of your birthplace and a shrine near your house. But remember, when you do these, you must do it by yourself or with your family, not in a group, because doing them in a group doesn’t meet the will of the gods.

After this, I visited Nagataki Hakusan Shrine(長滝白山神社) and Shirayama Hime shrine(白山比咩神社) and completed this trip to Ise and Mt.Hakusan finally. Now I feel everyday that I’ve become much younger in body and in mind.
