Relation of Master and Disciple is No Good for Spirituality

81pvowlMOmL

There are some psychics who make much of the relation of master and disciple or pride themselves on having been a disciple of a famous teacher. It’s obvious that their spirituality is low and they are half finished psychics. The spirituality of such psychics who demand a lot of money from those in trouble is less than half of that of ordinary people working hard everyday.

  • make much of A Aを重要視する
  • relation 関係
  • disciple 弟子
  • obvious 明らかな
  • demand 要求する

Inner God of such a psychic is hiding itself deep inside. They are ignorant of true knowledge of the spirit world and obsessed with the fatally wrong idea that it’s good to be stained with another person’s spiritual color. Such spiritual teachers adopt their disciples and make them their puppets.They swindle their disciples out of money saying that they will teach the secret of enlightenment, and attach spiritual dirt to their disciples’ original spiritual bodies. The disciples exult to feel something they have never felt before, which is no more than spiritual dirt.

  • ignorant 無知な
  • puppet 操り人形
  • swindle 騙す
  • enlightenment 悟り
  • attach 付ける
  • exult 歓喜する
  • no more than A Aにすぎない

In Zen, there is a phrase, “if you come across a Buddha, you must destroy the Buddha, if you come across a master, you must destroy the master.” Ikkyu(一休), Hakuin (白隠)and Dogen(道元) said similar things, too. The true meaning of the phrase was suppressed by Zen sect because revealing what the great zen masters really wanted to say was inconvenient for the management of the organization. So the phrase has been handed down to this day without its clear explanation, interpreted as meaning “do not depend on others,” “introspect your own mind.” But the truth is its true meaning is much more serious.

  • come across A Aに出会う
  • similar 似たような
  • suppress 隠す
  • management 運営
  • interpret 解釈す
  • introspect 内観する

When Ikkyu reached spiritual enlightenment in his twenties, he thought, I feel,  “Oh, now I see clearly. I’ve gone a long way round. I hate my master. He is the very man who prevented me from becoming awake,” and felt angry. Ikkyu saw his comrades killing themselves after despairing of reaching enlightenment. He had an acute resentment of many comrads’ lives and souls being wasted.

  • go a long way round 遠回りをする
  • prevent 妨げる
  • awake 目覚めた
  • comrade 仲間
  • despair 絶望する
  • resentment 憤慨

His “bad” behaviors after his enlightenment that broke the conventions of Buddhism were irony toward masters. He was really thinking that masters confusing their disciples were misleading and unnecessary. Dogen didn’t adhere to forms, either and said “Just sit.” Ramana Maharshi, a sage of southern India, also said “Do not meditate. Just be there. Do not even think about trying to be. Just be. Do not wonder what being is?  Because you’ve already been.”

  • convention しきたり
  • confuse 迷わせる
  • misleading 誤解を招くような
  • adhere 固執する
  • sage 成人
  • meditate 瞑想する

Since you were born as a human being, you’ve had Something Great inside yourself. So all you have to do is to walk with it for a limited time. In this World of Reality, or material world, everything, including time, is in tandem. It’s important there to respect a vertically structured relationship, such as teacher and student or boss and his men, because knowledge is imparted from the one who mastered it first to a learner. The learner has to show gratitude, as a matter of course.

  • in tandem 縦に
  • respect 尊重する
  • impart 分け与える
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち

In the spirit world, on the other hand, all souls stand in line before Something Great, or God. There can’t be the relation of master and disciples there. Spiritual masters would be nothing more than sinful, stupid men before God. Even God would get angry to see them chiseling money out of his disciples using the name of God. “I do not belong only to you,” God would say. Everyone stands in line and is completely equal before God. Just stay as you are and go through thick and thin free from care with the following phrase in mind:

  • horizontal line 横線
  • sinful 罪深い
  • chisel 巻き上げる
  • completely 完全に
  • as one be あるがままに

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
  • influence 影響
  • greatly 大いに
  • awake 目覚める

My Personal View of Ghost Pictures

81pvowlMOmL

Yesterday, I watched a TV show featuring ghost pictures, where three judges commentated on ghost pictures. Though comments about ghost pictures have been often quite different from mine recently, those made by judges who appeared on TV in Showa era would often correspond with mine. A famous psychic Aiko Gibo(宜保愛子) or Mr.T, who was a founder of a new religion and famous in Kansai area, were capable of seeing the spirit world, aside from the level of the spirits behind them and that of their spirituality.

  • feature 特集する
  • ghost picture 心霊写真
  • correspond 一致する
  • be capable of~ing 〜することができる
  • aside from A Aは別として

The producer of the TV show must have tried to make the TV program as objective as possible by having three judges commentate on ghost pictures in advance and introducing a judgement common among them. However, the comments in this program were very different from mine.

  • objective 客観的な
  • in advance 前もって
  • common 共通の

Since the spirit world is invisible, there is no proving the existence of the world. So comments about it on TV are often accepted as they are without being verified. I think it’s more important in such programs to impart the knowledge of, and an appropriate attitude to, the sprit world  to viewers rather than just introducing judges’ comments. Now I’ll explain about ghost pictures from my spiritual point of view.

  • invisible 目に見えない
  • prove 証明する
  • existence 存在
  • verify 検証する
  • impart 教える
  • appropriate 適切な

In some of the ghost pictures shown in yesterday’s program, part of a subject’s body was transparent or missing. This phenomenon mostly suggest notices from ancestral spirits. The person in such a picture has to heed the part of the body because there is a possibility of the part or the whole body becoming ill sooner or later.

  • subject 被写体
  • transparent 透明な
  • phenomenon 現象
  • notice 知らせ
  • heed 気をつける

A certain judge in the program said that such a phenomenon was due to the possession of an evil spirit. But it’s wrong. If the spirit had been an evil one, the part of the body in question would have had a color or been hidden by a strange form of the spirit because the spiritual body of an evil spirit is very coarse.

  • be due to A Aが原因である
  • possession 憑依
  • in question 問題の
  • form 形象
  • coarse 荒い

When an ancestral spirit wants to let a descendant know his/her physical problem, the spirit covers up part of the descendant’s body to make it transparent on a picture. The spiritual body of an ancestral spirits who can protect its descendants is so clear as to make part of their descendant’s body transparent or invisible. In the case of evil spirits, on the other hand, the subject’s face is made black or an unnatural form appears in the picture.

  • let A 原形不定詞  Aに〜させる
  • so … as to~ 〜するくらい…
  • on the other hand 一方

In yesterday’s program, a picture of an elementary school student was shown. His face was deformed in the picture. This was due to lack of his parents’ memorial services for their ancestral spirits and a spirit of an aborted child. It’s easy for children to be affected by evil spirits, depending on the way their parents live.

  • deform 変形させる
  • be due to A Aが原因である
  • aborted 中絶した

In another picture, only clothes were appearing behind a subject. In this case, the phenomena was due to the work of a wondering spirit who didn’t want to surprise nor worry the subject yet wanted to attract attention. It’s just like a person who is fond of standing out is waving his hands before a television camera. The judges in the program made serious comments about this picture, but there’s no cause for worry, for evil spirits normally appear at the under part of a picture and evil gods at the upper part as strange forms.

  • wonder 彷徨う
  • yet にも関わらず
  • attract 引きつける
  • stand out 目立つ

The judges suggested that the picture be taken to a psychic to have it burned or purified. But this is not good because the owners of such pictures can fall preys to bad psychics. When you want to do something with ghost pictures, it’s best and safest to put it in an envelope and throw it away with other domestic waste. Do not try to burn it by yourself because it’s dangerous when an evil spirit gets out of the picture. Put it in a white envelope and seal it with glue or rice. Since evil spirits hate to be thrown away, it may make you forget the day of taking it out. So it’s better to put it in a garbage bag with other waste before collection day.

  • suggest 提案する
  • burn 燃やす
  • purify 浄化させる
  • fall prey 餌食になる
  • domestic 家庭用の
  • envelope 封筒

A picture in which an evil god appears can generate spontaneous combustion though not so often. So be careful about the place you put the garbage bag with ghost pictures in it before a garbage day. It’s better to put it on  a conspicuous place under which there is no combustibles so that you won’t forget forget the day you take it out. Also, if you go to a shrine or Buddhist temple to dispose of it  by car, you can have a car accident on the way. So it’s best to put it at a garbage collection area in the neighborhood.

  • spontaneous combustion 自然発火
  • garbage ゴミ
  • conspicuous 目立つ
  • Buddhist temple お寺
  • dispose of A  Aを処理する
  • on the way 途中で

You may think “Is this picture OK?” or “What about that picture?” But don’t worry. You are not affected by such strange pictures as long as you hold a memorial service for your ancestral spirits every day. All you have to do is throw such pictures or films away or delete them. What I mentioned above is my personal view. Please use it as reference. Comments about ghost pictures on TV might change from now on, don’t they?

  • memorial service 供養
  • delete 削除する
  • mention 言及する
  • reference 参考

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.

There are a lot of people worrying about job-changing or divorce. They’re not so sure about their future after making a decision that they can’t decide whether to do it or not.

  •  job-changing  転職
  • divorce 離婚
  • whether  S+V SがVするかどうか

One of the major differences between humans and animals is the ability to imagine and worry, for better or worse. Animals are, at it were, in the state of Kannagara(カンナガラ), or the state of being with God. They behave by “right” instinct without worry. They concentrate on here and now. When they feel stressed, they try to avoid the cause of the stress naturally. Humans , living in society, cannot trust their “right” instinct more often than not.

  • difference 違い
  • ability 能力
  • for better or worse 善かれ悪しかれ
  • instinct 本能
  • concentrate 集中する
  • more often than not しばしば

One of the methods for exerting your right instinctive power is holding grateful memorial services for your ancestors and reminding yourself of gratitude for being kept alive, which reduce your unnecessary negative magnetism. Magnetism of gratitude enables you to see your problems objectively.

  • exert  発揮する
  • grateful 感謝の
  • remind A of B AにBを思い出させる
  • reduce 減らす
  • magnetism 磁気
  • enable A to~  Aが〜するのを可能にする

* Do not take action as long as you’re worried about the problem.

If you practice what accumulates your magnetism of gratitude, you can consider divorce, guessing what your life would be like or the cost of living after the divorce. If you’re not sure about your life after the divorce, you had better not hurry because if you’re worrying about something while holding memorial services for your ancestors every day, there is a high probability that your ancestral spirits are against your idea.

  • accumulate 蓄積させる
  • consider 考える
  • had better not ~  〜しないほうがよい
  • probability 可能性

Or, if you leave the judgement to another person or a psychic medium who demands money, you cannot make a right decision because unnecessary spiritual magnetism like dirt prevents you from receiving messages from your ancestral spirits. You could fall prey to the psychic medium and become a good customer who bring him/her a lot of money. You would end up in having more problems, causing regrettable results.

  • leave A to B AをBに任せる
  • demand 要求する
  • prevent 妨げる
  • fall prey 餌食になる
  • regrettable 後悔するような

Your ancestral spirits are watching over you all the time because you’re connected to them by your spiritual line. Irresponsible advice given by self-claimed psychics is rubbish who make a living exploiting unfortunate people. Asking such people for advice is due to your confused mind.

  • watch over A  Aを見守る
  • all the time いつも
  • spiritual line 霊線
  • self-claimed 自称の
  • exploit 利用する
  • rubbish ゴミ

*Ponder and make a decision about your problem after reminding yourself of gratitude.

Do this, and you’ll have no regret. If you do whatever you can and consider the problem,  you won’t regret the result. If you do this by halves, you’ll regret having followed the advice from another person, thinking “There may have been another better way….”

  • ponder よく考える
  • regret 後悔
  • by halves 中途半端に
  • another 他の

While you live in this World of Reality, you’re connected to your ancestral spirits by the spiritual line of your family line. Begin cut off from the spiritual line means the death of your physical body. Instead of asking others for help, you should make the most of your spiritual line, through which life energy flows into you as well. This method of using your spiritual line causes good change in this World of Reality the fastest and most safely.

  • family line 家系
  • death 死
  • instead of A Aの代わりに
  • make the most of A  Aを最大限に利用する

Calm ancestral spirits are in so near a dimension to the World of Reality that they can have influence on their descendants. Also, the time they lived in this world is not so far away from the present time that they can do it appropriately and practically. Holy spirits in high dimensions, on the other hand, have difficulty tuning in to the World of Reality and tend to care nothing about personal affairs. They are apt to be anachronistic.

  • calm 落ち着いた
  • dimension 次元
  • influence 影響
  • descendant 子孫
  • tune in to A Aに波長を合わせる
  • anachronistic 時代錯誤的な

It’s no wonder that souls who left this world ten years ago and ones 3000 years ago are different in experience. The former can support your life much better than the latter. Calm ancestral spirits support their descendants like their own children until they leave the spiritual lines of their families for another trip. They are watching over the whole of your life.

  • wonder 驚き
  • experience 経験
  • the former 前者
  • the latter 後者
  • whole 全体

Once your ancestral spirits in pain get relief thanks to your memorial services, they try to protect you and repay you for your kindness in return. As you keep on holding grateful memorial services for your ancestors, more and more ancestral spirits get relief, forming a spiritual group whose mission is to protect you. This protection is like unconditional love similar to parents’ love toward their children. God has made a rule, as a means of getting through the trying human world, that those are helped who help their ancestral spirits.

  • get relief 痛みが楽になる
  • repay 恩を返す
  • kindness 親切
  • form 形成する
  • unconditional 無条件の

How to Repair the Damage of Your Soul

81pvowlMOmL

Why are memorial services for ancestral spirits necessary? I have had a spiritual reading about this question when I was deep in concentration. What I saw and felt then was a vision of the profound process through which a soul takes on a physical body to come into being in this World of Reality.

  • ancestral  先祖の
  • necessary 必要な
  • concentration 集中
  • profound 深い

When a soul in the other world, led by Inner God, tries to tune in to a mother’s body the soul chose, the soul goes inside of her family’s spiritual line back and forth many times. While this innocent soul goes through it, the bumps of the inside damages the soul and makes a mark on it. The soul cannot get through the spiritual line without being damaged  by the bumps. That is , all souls that pass through the spiritual line of the same family line are damaged on the same spot.

  • the other world あの世
  • tune in to A Aに同調する
  • innocent 無垢な
  • bump 凸凹
  • damage 傷をつける

The marks of damage are etched into the soul and form physical characteristics, genetic disease, personality or preference, which are to be handed down from generation to generation of the family line. The wave motion of the spiritual magnetism the damaged soul produces affects the DNA of its physical body. Holding grateful memorial services for your ancestral spirits repairs the ragged surface of your spiritual line and makes it smooth.

  • form 形成する
  • genetic 遺伝の
  • preference 好み
  • hand down 伝える
  • wave motion 波動
  • affect 影響する

The ragged surface of the inside of your spiritual line affects not only the prototype of your physical body but also your life even after birth. Because you receive life energy flowing through your spiritual line from the Primordial God, your physical body cannot help being influenced by it. The life energy is changed by the ragged surface of your spiritual line and flows into you.

  • prototype 原型
  • receive 受け取る
  • primordial 根源の
  • influence 影響する

If you succeed in making the ragged surface smooth, spiritual problems caused by the clogging of your spiritual line will disappear because all cells that constitute a human body are renewed every three months, each cell being renewed every day.

  • succeed in ~ing 〜するのに成功する
  • clogging 詰まり
  • constitute 構成する
  • renew 再生させる

What I mentioned above is just an aspect of effects the spiritual line of your family line has on your physical body. What’s more important is that by holding memorial services for your ancestral spirits can you trace back your spiritual line and realize the connection between you and the holy spirit and, beyond it, the Primordial Being.

  • mention 言及する
  • aspect 側面
  • trace back 遡る
  • connection 繋がり

You can never go back to the Primordial Being by the help of evil spiritual beings or self-appointed psychics or spiritual gurus. To receive any help from them could be a fatal obstacle to your life. Now that you live in this world, it is the safest and reasonable way  for you to take advantage of your spiritual line that connects you to your ancestral spirits, like it or not.

  • self-appointed 自称の
  • fatal 致命的な
  • obstacle 障害
  • like it or not 好むと好まざるとに関わらず

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

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
