Those who Use People to Make Money

81pvowlMOmL

War industries are similar to evil psychics, fortunetellers and religious organizations in that they use people in trouble to make their livings. If it were not for conflicts or wars on this planet, war industries would go bankrupt . As long as the world is in the state of peace, they cannot help but close their businesses. They don’t necessarily need wars if only there is a threat, or state of tension, of war.

  • industry  産業
  • similar 似ている
  • living 生計
  • conflict 争い
  • cannot help ~ing 〜せざるを得ない
  • threat 脅威
  • tension 緊張

When the world is in peace, they supply weapons to politically unstable countries for free. Also, they act in secret to cause a war in a neighboring country to make a country that has bought expensive arms from them realize that the country is safe thanks to their arms. It’s important for each country to develop and preserve weapons for self-defense, though.

  • politically 政治的に
  • neighboring 近隣の
  • develop 開発する
  • preserve 保持する
  • self-defense 自衛

The way war industries do business and the way evil psychics do business are almost the same. Psychics who demand a lot of money from counseled persons try to make a strong impression on people who visited them for the first time for advice about not so serious a problem so that they will come to the psychics over and over to pay a lot of money. It’s easy to cheat mentally unstable people out of money.

  • demand 要求する
  • counseled 助言された
  • impression 印象
  • over and over 何度も
  • unstable 不安定な
  • cheat 騙す

In Showa era, evil psychics would often tell visitors about their life span. They made the visitors buy at an extraordinary price gravestones, hanging scrolls, Buddhist statues, pots, signature stamps and so on, saying “You’re destined to die soon like this, but you can prolong your life if you do this.” The total amount of money they’ve swindled out of people in trouble by making them scared about the invisible world might be equal to the amount of money war industries have made. Psychics are worst in every way who demand money by foreseeing people’s life span too easily. They are the lowest of the low in terms of humanity, the level of spirituality and the knowledge of the sprit world.

  • era 時代
  • life span 寿命
  • extraordinary 法外な
  • hanging scroll 掛け軸
  • destined to~ 〜する運命にある
  • prolong 延ばす
  • swindle 騙し取る

To tell the truth, I’ve come to be able to foresee when a person will die and where the soul will go after death since I began to feel Kunitokotachi-o-kami (国常立太御神)inside me. My wife is often surprised to know that my predictions really come true and says to me “Are you Damian in The Exorcist?” lol

  • to tell the truth  実は
  • come to~  〜するようになる
  • destination 行き先
  • prediction 予言

Kunitokotachi-o-kami is the holy spirit who controls the underworld, including the Hell. When I ask him about when a person’s dies, He lets me know the person’s current life span. However, there are some strict rules He made:

*Do not tell the person about when he/she dies.

*Do not even give the person a hint about it.

*Do not tell those around him/her about it, either.

*But you are allowed to tell the person how to prolong life.

  • current 現在の
  • strict 厳しい
  • be allowed to~ 〜するのを許されている

Death is an important event through which people can learn a lot. So, if you prevent a person from learning something important by telling him/her when he/she dies, you’ll call down divine punishment on your head.

  • divine 神の
  • punishment   罰

My experiences tell me that human life-span changes. This is because your behaviors in everyday life have influence on the future, which means you can change your future greatly. It’s important to awake to the path of right and establish your own religion based on the faith of reminding yourself of gratitude for being kept alive.

  • experience 経験
  • behavior 行為

Only Genuine Shinto Prayer is the One Yamatohime-no-mikoto Received from Above

81pvowlMOmL

There used to be high government officials called Jingi-kan(神祇官), who  had supported shinto rituals held by the Imperial Family since the age of the ancient Ritsuryo system(律令制度). The position was handed down from parents to children because of the secrecy of the rituals. It’s like if your father has a powerful position in the Imperial Household Agency, you are supposed to enter it, too.

  • official  役人
  • ancient 古代の
  • secrecy 機密性
  • be supposed to~ 〜することになっている

As a result, powerful families who have occupied the position of Jingi-kan came to express their own authority. They, trying to gain Emperor’s favor, took advantage of the high position and came to be haughty in their behaviors. They also formed their own shinto sects to make money

  • authority 権威
  • haughty 傲慢な
  • sect 流派

Inside the Imperial Court, they furiously competed against one another for promotion, keeping an eye on the others. Holding back rivals from achieving success, they were absorbed in factional strife. They sometimes went so far as to hurl imprecations at their rivals.

  • compete 競う
  • promotion 昇進
  • keep an eye  見張る
  • absorbed 熱心な
  • factional 派閥の
  • imprecation 呪詛

There seems to be the same kind of rivalry among politicians and high government officials in the modern world, too. The character of privileged people has been the same since ancient times. Human societies have not made much progress in this respect.

  • the modern world 現代世界
  • privileged 特権を持った 
  • progress 進歩
  • respect 点

The problem is that some powerful families asserted that they had been involved in the secret rituals by the Imperial Household since the age of Emperor Jinmu(神武天皇), and made up shinto prayers that they said had been handed down only in their families. Most shinto prayers handed down to the present day are fake ones made up like this. It’s natural that such prayers should have no effect on holy spirits.

  • assert 主張する
  • make up A Aをでっち上げる
  • hand down  A Aを伝える
  • the present day 現代
  • fake 偽の

In modern times, a certain family was expelled from the Imperial Court because the family was defeated in a factional struggle against Yoshida family(吉田家) and condemned by Emperor Meiji(明治天皇) for their spirituality in shinto rituals. This family had also formed their own shinto sect. It is said that when the family left the Imperial Court, it predicted that without their shinto rituals, the Imperial Family and its nation would be perish, which is nothing more than a parting shot by those who cling to power.

  • modern times 近世
  • a certain ある
  • expel  追放する
  • defeat 打ち負かす
  • condemn 避難する
  • predict 予言する
  • perish  滅びる

The system of Jingi-kan has gone now, but somehow a shinto prayer that is said to have been handed down in a certain family, who has already died out, is popular these days. Some self-appointed psychics or healers are making a lot of money by telling their clients this shinto prayer. They really don’t know what this shinto prayer is like and its spiritual background. They buy the license of using it from a bogus psychic and with unfounded confidence sell it to those unfortunate, not knowing what they do makes their and people’s Inner God disappear.

  • somehow どういうわけか
  • self-appointed 自称の
  • background 背景
  • bogus インチキの
  • unfounded 根拠のない
  • unfortunate 不運な

A personal god of Amaterasu-o-ho-mi-kami(天照太御神) feels sad about this. A personal god of Susanoo(スサノオ) tells me that he will catch at once all of the scoundrels, responding to the false shinto prayer. The only genuine shinto prayer from the World of Gods is the one Yamatohime-no-mikoto(倭姫命) received from above −Oharae-no-kotoba(大祓詞). The other ones are what humans made up.

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.

What is the Spiritual Line?

81pvowlMOmL

Seen through my psychic eyes, a spiritual line looks extending from under the bone of each shoulder. And the two spiritual lines become one over head and extends more toward the sky. The spiritual line extending to another dimension can be said to be a mark on the world that ancestors have made. It’s like a pipe through which ancestors’ spiritual DNAs have been flowing since the beginning of the human race.

IMG_3567

 

  • extend  伸びる
  • dimension 次元
  • mark 跡
  • ancestor 先祖
  • the human race 人類

Humans were like God at the very beginning they were born from God. As time went by, they increased in number just like a tree grows up branching out in a number of directions. Ancient humans at the early stage were like the trunk of the tree, while the modern humans are like the edge of a leaf. Ancestors are like the branch between the leaf and the trunk. Some ancestors’ spiritual lines are ten centimeters long and others are one meter long.

  • increase 増加する
  • branch 枝分かれする
  • direction 方向
  • trunk 幹

The spiritual line extending from your right shoulder and that extending from your left shoulder twine around each other and extends as one spiritual line beyond time and space.  As your spiritual line is purified and becomes thick and as the result your soul has developed, you appear to have two wings extending from your shoulders and a ring over your head. To be exact, the ring is the spiritual line like a pipe. The way it looks depends on the spiritual ability of a perceiver.

  • twine 絡む
  • purify 浄化する
  • thick 厚い
  • to be exact 正確に言うと
  • depend 次第である
  • perceiver 知覚する者

In the Western world, such a person is described as an angel with two wings on the back and a halo over the head, while in Buddhism the halo is expressed as one behind or above the head of a Buddhist statue.

  • describe 描く
  • halo 光の輪
  • Buddhist statue 仏像

The right-sided spiritual line is the spiritual line of your family line. The left-sided spiritual line is the one of your Inner God. The former is replaced with another when your family name is changed because of marriage or adoption. When your family name is changed, your look and preference are also changed.

  • family line 家系
  • replace 取り替える
  • adoption 養子縁組

If a married woman refuses to change her family name, for example, she is likely to get a divorce because her own family’s spiritual line doesn’t tune in to her husband’s. So, if you hope for your daughter’s happiness, you should make her focus on her new family. Married women can fit into their husbands’ families fast by holding memorial services for their husbands’ ancestral spirits.

  • refuse 拒む
  • be likely to~ 〜しそうである
  • divorce 離婚
  • tune in to A Aに同調する
  • ancestral 先祖の

When an evil spirit possess a person, the spirit tries to bite off the person’s right-sided spiritual line because once the person is cut off from his family’s spiritual line, the evil spirit can control the person both mentally and physically. It is because the protection by ancestral spirits is very strong in the World of Reality that evil spirits try to destroy the right-sided spiritual line first.

  • evil spirit 悪霊
  • possess 憑依する
  • bite off A  Aを噛み切る
  • mentally 精神的に
  • protection 保護

Evil psychics or spiritual healers have their right-sided spiritual lines broken and have a hole in their spiritual body beneath the right shoulder. They, evil spirits going in and out of their holes, are unwilling to appease ancestral spirits and even deny them. The hole grows bigger and bigger, until the evil spirit tries to bite off the left-sided spiritual line connecting to Inner God. When the left-sided spiritual line is cut, the person dies.

  • unwilling   〜する気がない
  • appease 慰める
  • deny 否定する
  • connect 繋がる

You might wonder “Is my spiritual line all right? ” or “Is there a hole in my spiritual body?” But don’t worry. If you can notice it while you’re alive, it’s OK.  Just think about now and the future without being stuck in the past. If you keep away from any spiritual deed that attach spiritual dirt to your spiritual body and practice holding memorial services for your ancestral spirits and reminding yourself of gratitude, the hole will regenerate and close up. Don’t worry.

  • notice 気がつく
  • be stuck 囚われる
  • the past 過去
  • attach くっつける
  • dirt 垢
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • regenerate 再生する

The left-sided spiritual line is connected to the spiritual center beneath the right side of your chest that controls your soul and Inner God, while the right-sided spiritual line is connected to the spiritual center beneath the left side of your chest that controls your physical body.

  • beneath 〜の真下の
  • chest 胸
  • control 司る

Appeasing your ancestral spirits with gratitude for them cleanses your right-sided spiritual line. Reminding yourself of gratitude for your daily lives and gods cleanses your left-sided spiritual line. The cleased spiritual lines become one thick spiritual line over your head, through which the life energy from the Primordial God flows into you. With the life energy, you could live a very happy life in this world.

  • cleanse 綺麗にする
  • daily lives 日常生活
  • life energy 生命力
  • primordial 根源の

Those Connected to the World of Gods Come to be Able to Render Gratuitous Service

81pvowlMOmL

In Showa era, there lived a strange old woman in a mountainous area of Nara prefecture. When exorcists training themselves in Omine mountain range got possessed by evil spirits and couldn’t get rid of them by themselves, she was the last person for them to turn to. She didn’t give any advice to people in general. She just warded off evil spirits possessing professional exorcists or their spiritual dirt for food in return.

  • era 時代
  • exorcist 祈祷師
  • get rid of A Aを取り除く
  • turn to A Aに頼る
  • ward off A Aを清める

When I was young, I knew two cult leaders who had met this woman. According to what one of them told me about her, if psychics or spiritual leaders making a lot of money using the name of God died in Japan, they have to spend 21 days in the ground of her garden in the form of big earthworms before leaving this world.

  • earn 稼ぐ
  • spend 過ごす
  • form 形
  • earthworm ミミズ

She showed the earthworms to him on request. Taking off two seat mats on the ground of her garden, he saw various large and small earthworms moving on it. Strangely, the earthworms were various in kind, length, thickness and color. Some of them looked like snakes 30 centimeters long.

  • on request 要望に応じて
  • various 様々な
  • length 長さ
  • snake 蛇

The day he met her was just ten days after a religious leader died secretly, so he told her only the name of his religious organization and asked her if his soul had come to the ground. She said “Ah, Mr. so and so came here recently” and pointed to one big earthworm. The earthworm was a black one about twenty centimeters long and had a weird appearance. It looked as if it were writhing in agony. The name she said was correct.

  • secretly 内密に
  • organization 組織
  • point  指差す
  • weird 奇妙な
  • appearance 姿
  • writhe のたうち回る

I’ve never met her before. I feel that she has something to do with a spiritual being involved in the underworld, for the area she lived in is where a huge black dragon acting for Kunitokotachi-o-kami (国常立大神)descended a long time ago.

  • have something to do with A Aと何か関係がある
  • involved 関係した
  • the underworld 冥界
  •  descend 降臨する

God is like air and serves everyone for free. So, you must not claim that God is yours, nor price it to exploit unfortunate people. Those who are connected to the World of Gods know with awe that the world is the one full of service and love. They would feel sorry for unfortunate people and be anxious to help them without expecting anything in return.

  •  serve 役に立つ
  • claim 主張する
  • price 値段をつける
  • exploit 搾取する
  • connect 繋ぐ
  • awe 畏怖
  • be anxious to~ 〜したくて仕方がない

Self-appointed psychics, spiritual gurus or spiritual healers who cannot make a living without accepting money from unfortunate ones are never qualified to do so, because those connected to the higher energy come to be able to live a life of simplicity without accepting any money from the unfortunate. Without such spiritual ability, you couldn’t possibly heal people.

  • self-appointed  自称の
  • be qualified to~ 〜する資格がない
  • simplicity 簡素
  • heal 癒す

If a psychic or spiritual healer accepts money from people, they are never connected to the right spirit world. Indeed, they hold an event one after another in order to squeeze money from people in trouble. Those who are connected to a devildom don’t hesitate to accept money from the poor. They make easy money and “eat” flesh of the opposite sex in the name of God, even breaking others’ families.

  • squeeze 搾り取る
  • hesitate ためらう
  • divildom 魔界
  • flesh 肉

In light of the destination of their souls after death, what they do for a living is anything but a paying business. Their accounts of life are made to balance after all. Japan is a spiritually distinctive country where strange figures like her are born.

  • destination 目的地

How Children Play with Clay Tells Their Future

There had been a spiritual disturbance happening for a week, starting from November 11, in the other worlds ranging from the World of Gods to the lowest dimensional world. Susanoo(スサノオ) seems to have brought down his short sword. He is likely to bring down his long sword at least three times next year.

  • disturbance 騒動
  • bring down A   Aを振り下ろす
  • at least 少なくとも

I feel that gurus or healers with spiritual dirt of the World of the Dead or those whose original magnetism is little are beginning to go through a tough time. However, those who show some negative reaction at this stage are better than those none in a sense, for their spiritual bodies are trying to adapt to the change.

  • dirt 垢
  • magnetism 磁気
  • go through A Aを経験する
  • reaction 反応
  • adapt 適応する

From next year on, electromagnetic waves and spiritual ones emitted from the sun will be much stronger. Those who do spiritual business for money may not show dangerous symptoms soon, but later they will be forced to have their bodies purified at a time. They won’t bear the pain.

  • electromagnetic wave 電磁波
  • emit 放出する
  • deal in A  Aを商う
  • symptom 兆候
  • force A to~  Aに〜するよう強いる
  • purify 浄化する
  • bear 耐える

Spiritual healings that healers do by using spiritual magnetism of human beings will do harm to human bodies in the long run, no matter how much their spiritual power seems to be good. Like blood transfusion, your own blood, or magnetism, is the best for your body. Being covered with your original spiritual magnetism is the shortest way to become one with the holy spirit your ancestors’ spiritual line leads to. The holy spirit is Ubusuna kami(産土神) or Ujigami(氏神).

  • harm 害
  • in the long run 結局は
  • blood transfusin 輸血
  • spiritual line 霊線

Those who try to turn to another’s spiritual magnetism for help will end up in wandering forever, never being able to have confidence in themselves because they are separated from their true identity, or Inner God. Keeping your own original magnetism is the key for everything. Do not let another’s magnetism contaminate you.

  • turn to A  Aに頼る
  • wander 迷う
  • confidence 自信
  • separate 分ける
  • contaminate 汚染する

Children playing with clay originally can concentrate on the play for hours. The abilities acquired at this time will help them to study or work for the rest of their lives. To say exaggeratedly, how children play with clay tells their future.

  • clay 粘土
  • originally 独自に
  • concentrate 集中する
  • acquire 獲得する

I feel that those children whose parents are too strict or lacking in love tend to create small works that have no character. They are likely to wait for a teacher’s direction without thinking or try to make the same kind of thing as a child next to him is making. This is true of adults,too. Some are always reading others’ facial expressions and too self-effacing.

  • strict 厳しい
  • lacking 不足して
  • tend to~ 〜する傾向がある
  • character 特徴
  • direction 指示
  • true 当てはまる
  • self-effacing 遠慮がちな

Many founders of companies seem to have original ideas and exercise their ingenuity. They are, as it were, something of an inventor. They wear their own original magnetism and have a strong faith in themselves. Negatively speaking, they may be narcissistic. They can concentrate on play or a hobby alone without getting bored. Their spirituality is not necessarily high, though.

  • founder 創業者
  • ingenuity 工夫
  • inventor 発明家
  • faith 信頼
  • get bored 飽きる
  • sprituality 霊性

Mentally wandering people don’t know what they want to do even when they have fun. They have nothing they can devote themselves to. If this continues, they can end up as preys to wicked spirits controlling religious groups that bind down their believers’ Inner God by detailed rules and give them orders. Such people may feel comfortable and safe by obeying the orders. But they will never get true peace of mind forever.

  • prey 餌食
  • bind down A Aを束縛する
  • detailed 細かい
  • obey 従う

Seeing people putting their heart to something or enjoying themselves is pleasant to see, which makes the seer happy too. To attract people, you have to enjoy yourself first.

The Shortest Way to Enlightenment is Near You

森羅万象第6巻 表紙

A very weird middle-aged man George Ivanovich Gurdjieff went on a long journey searching for the way for human beings to “awaken.” That is, he didn’t know his mystic method from the beginning. He had a strong will and intuition by nature. Convinced that there must be a hidden secret in this world, he set out on the journey.

  • middle-aged 中年の
  • awaken 覚醒する
  • mystic 秘宝の
  • intuition 直感
  • by nature 生まれつき
  • convince 確信させる

To continue his journey for the truth, he did anything. The episode is well known that he painted a sparrow yellow and sold it as a canary. In the middle of the journey, he took a hint that when human beings are put in an extreme situation, the door of a new consciousness of human beings is opened up. In order to make money for the journey and put himself  in an extreme situation, he thought of various hard work where he had to reach his quota.

  • sparrow すずめ
  • extreme 極端な
  • consciousness 意識
  • various 様々な
  • quota ノルマ

For example, he purchased a lot of old corsets for a low price, made some alterations on them and sold them at a much higher price pretending that they were the latest fashion. They sold very well partly because he put a lot of effort into the advertising, which was rare in those days. Different from ordinary people, he didn’t hire any person and made all of the corsets by himself without sleep or rest. He imposed the task on himself as a means of awakening. He kept on sitting eating little food and concentrated on the detailed work for a long time. He sometimes lost consciousness at the desk and fell asleep, but as soon as his consciousness came back he resumed the work.

  • purchase 購入する
  • alteration 改良
  • pretend 偽って主張する
  • the latest 最新の
  • advertising 広告
  • in those days 当時は
  • impose 課す
  • means 手段
  • concentrate 集中する
  • resume 再開する

Once he made a lot of money in this way and gained “something,” he abandoned his stable job and set out on another journey for the truth. Besides this episode, there are a lot of episodes of his hard work under harsh working conditions during his journey. He is definitely a man who gained “something” posteriori after all.

  • abandon 捨てる
  • besides A Aの他に
  • harsh 過酷な
  • definitely 間違いなく
  • posteriori 後天的に

In his late years, he said a lot of interesting things. Interpreting one of his remarks spiritually, I think he is saying like this:  “In super ancient times human beings were developed, created and raised by a certain “thing” and devices called Kunda-buffer for binding them up mentally and making them dream (which I feel is like a microchip) were attached to them so that they couldn’t escape and were controlled remotely by it from the moon.”

  • develop 開発する
  • device 装置
  • bind A up Aを縛り上げる
  • mentally 精神的に
  • attach くっつける
  • escape 逃げる
  • remotely 遠隔で

Gurdjieff suggests that this device is similar in nature to actions to tamper with a spiritual point on the backbone, such as meditation or yoga, or trainings for awakening Kundalini, and that these actions will end up enslaving human beings again like they were enslaved in super ancient times. In short, these actions are foolish ones to restart the Kinda-buffer device memorized in the genes and nothing more than mental degeneration in the name of spiritual training.

  • tamper with A   Aをいじる
  • backbone 背骨
  • enslave 奴隷化する
  • memorize 記憶する
  • gene 遺伝子
  • degeneration 退化

What he said is right. I think he is suggesting a fundamental fault of the modern religions. I’m sure those who they imagine have awakened by meditation are on the verge of falling into the Evil Zone, for their private lives are often depraved. They are corrupt in terms of a social and family life, too. They are sure to fall ill later in life because the direction of their spiritual training is fundamentally wrong. They have to look straight at their inside, not outside. It is rare and could be said to be a grace of God that you should reach the true enlightenment by only meditation, like Ramana Maharshi, an Indian sage.

  • fault 欠陥
  • religion 主教
  • verge 際
  • depraved 堕落した
  • corrupt 腐敗した
  • grace 恩寵
  • sage 聖人

Another interesting remark of his is “As long as you live alone, you never know your weak points. Your weak points consist in the relationship with others.” That is, unless you know yourself you can never awaken and only in a family or a society can you receive negative stimuli caused by your weak points from others. And also he says that the negative stimuli from others are the very treasure and they are worth buying. His purpose of life was not to waste his limited life but to acquire the perfect liberty by awakening. Therefore negative stimuli, mentally or physically, were all welcome for his big goal.

  • relationship 関係
  • stimuli 刺激
  • treasure 宝
  • purpose 目的

We suffer problems related to parents and children, school life or social life. But are we aware of those problems pointing to our weak points?  Especially, a conflict between parents and children is one of the eternal themes of human beings. It is often said that when you feel like taking care of your parents, they are already gone. Mr. Matsuzo Matsushita (松下松蔵), a god man of Showa era, imposed himself on absolute obedience to his stern parents as a spiritual training and as he got through the training, he came to acquire a very strong psychic power. Or Mr. Munetada Kurozumu(黒住宗忠), a great god man of Edo period, devoted himself to his parents before he experienced the magical encounter with Amaterasu-oho-mi-kami(天照太御神).

There exists a universal law in this world like a mechanism that grateful actions for parents or ancestors, from whom you physical body comes, have positive effects. Being kind to your living parents and holding memorial services for your dead parents or ancestors are the shortest way to spiritual enlightenment. You don’t have to go on a grueling journey like Gurdjieff. It doesn’t matter whether you are kind to your parents strategically and hypocritically. It’s admirable that you can do it.
