Secret of North Star

%ef%bc%97%e5%b7%bb

Though I’ve been writing about North Star many times since I began to write this blog in May 2007, I have avoided referring to its color as a big secret. However, I think it’s time to write about it.

  • refer to A Aに言及する

Every time I visit Geku(外宮) of Ise Grand Shrine(伊勢神宮), I perceive it to be the sacred place where North Star and North Dipper Seven Stars have been worshipped. At Geku can you see Ameno-minaka-nushi-no-kami (天之御中主神), or Ohkuni-tokotachi-oh-kami(大国常立常太神)in the form of North Star of the present century. Geku is where the spiritual vibration that produces life and keeps them alive is pouring down.

So when I visit Geku, I get visions of North Star and North Dipper Seven Stars in my mind. The color of the star corresponding to North Star is different from those of the other stars, which are shining white. North Star is light greenish blue or Paris green.

The companion star of North Star, or Alcor, is also light greenish blue.  I feel it’s related to the world after death. That is, North Star produces life, while Alcor controls death. There is a mechanism in the universe that pairs of yin and yang produce and develop everything.

It takes a long time for stars to become North Star by turns. I feel that a star coming in the center of the universe changes its color from white to light greenish blue. When North Star changes, the land of the earth that receives the energy from North Star is also changed. In Japan, as of present, it’s the region situated between Ise and Mt.Hakusan(白山). With the change of North Star, the region where the light of creation pours down changes. Nara, Kyoto, Izumo used to be a place like that.

Ancient civilizations in foreign countries also developed on the lands that received the energy of North Star. As North Star changes, nations and regions where civilizations rise change. The movement and replacement of North Star means the change of the universe that the Fundamental Being expresses.

  • rise 興隆する
  • movement 動き
  • replacement 置き換え

The color of North Star is not visible with an astronomical telescope.It’s the image in my mind. It’s interesting that a lot of buried properties in ancient times have the same color. Ancient people must’ve thought of North Star as the center of the universe, too. I feel that they regarded the color, which they saw spiritually, as the one showing nobleness and tried to expresse it on articles.

  • astronomical telescope 天体望遠鏡
  • buried property 埋葬品
  • nobleness 高貴さ
  • article 品物

The idea of worshipping North Star and its color traces back to Taoism in ancient China. I can feel even now that Taoism had a strong influence on Ise Grand Shrine in the age of Emperor Temmu(天武天皇). The soul of Lao-tzu(老子), who is the founder of Taoism and has been worshipped as God in China, came from North Star at that time.

I want to name the nine stars “North Dipper Nine Stars” :North Star, North Dipper Seven Stars and Alcor. These nine stars represents the whole universe and the universe in microcosm. They have practical effects on the earth and societies.

  • represent 表す

And it is Hakusan-Kukuri-hime-oh-kami(白山ククリヒメ大神) who controls North Dipper Nine Stars. The name is not just a name for one goddess. It also shows both a state of other gods being controlled by her and children of the future, for all human beings have gods inside. There are a lot of gods on this planet, aren’t there?
