How Foreigners Hold a Memorial Service for Ancestors

森羅万象第6巻 表紙

In terms of the spirit world, I’ve considered how a person with a foreign surname hold memorial services for ancestors, such as a Japanese woman who’s changed her surname to that of her foreign husband, a foreign family who’s become naturalized as a Japanese one or a Japanese woman who’s got married to a foreign man but still has her surname different from his.

  • in terms of A Aの観点から
  • surname 氏名
  • naturalize 帰化させる

Firstly, if you’re a Japanese woman who has a foreign surname, you can write her foreign name in the foreign language or in katakana characters on Tanzaku, a kind of cardboard for spirits to stay at temporarily. Because a memorial service is held through the doer’s brain in a way, an understandable language is good.

  • firstly まず第一に
  • brain 脳
  • understandable 理解できる

Secondly, if you’re a Japanese woman who has a different surname from that of your foreign husband, you should use her husband’ surname in holding a memorial service. When a couple uses their own surname separately, they can’t become one spiritually. They couldn’t feel like a family and troubles between them would never stop happening. Using husband’s surname produces harmony between married couples. The third incense stick you offer in a memorial service can take care of your own ancestors of the previous family line and other spirits related to you.

  • secondly 二つ目に
  • separately 別々に
  • produce 生み出す
  • harmony 調和
  • previous 前の
  • related 関係した

The word “Place” you write on Tanzaku is important, so write it in the language you feel best. “Place” means the location where spirits stay, so translate it into your language meaning “location” or “place” and write the word. When you hold a memorial service, you make use of your brain wave, and therefore the language of your own choosing is the best. When you show gratitude to your ancestors, use the words of your country meaning “gratitude for being kept alive.” The words do act on the spirits.

  • translate 翻訳
  • make use of A Aを利用する
  • brain wave 脳波
  • therefore それゆえ
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • keep A alive Aを生かしておく
  • act on A   Aに作用する

The reason why the language you feel the best is important is that by holding the spiritual ritual the doer’s thought and mental energy turns into magnetism that practically consoles spirits and the magnetism is etched into space. In this respect, if the doer wonders if the language is OK, the amount of the magnetism reaching spirits decreases.

  • ritual 儀式
  • turn into A Aに変わる
  • console 慰める
  • etch 刻み込む
  • respect 点
  • amount 量
  • decrease 減る
  • refer

If you’re not a Japanese, use the following illustrations as reference. The size of Tanzaku is about 30 centimeters tall. You can choose the language and the way you write it.


  1. Cross-type: you write the words meaning “The Place for My Ancestors’ Spirits” from left to right.
  2. Vertically-long type: you use Tanzaku made in Japan if possible. If you understand Japanese, write “The Place for The So and So s’ Ancestral Spirits” in katanaka characters or Chinese characters.

Use a stiff white cardboard and write the words boldly with a black or golden felt-tip pen so that your ancestral spirits can come close easily. Tanzaku must be thick (2mm is the best). Corrugated paper is not suitable due to its hollowness. If you can get only a colored cardboard, attach a white paper to the surface. Or if you make Tazanku out of some pieces of paper, you can use glue made of rice. Natural materials are easy for spirits to approach. Tanzaku must be stood up. Fix it with the a Tanzaku stand (you can make it out of two small notched wooden blocks).

  • stiff 硬い
  • boldly はっきり
  • felt-tip pen マジック
  • corrugated  paper 段ボール紙
  • hollowness 中空
  • surface 表面
  • approach 近づく
  • notched 刻みの入った

As for the cross-type Tanzaku, I’m not conscious of Christianity. The reason I suggest the form is that, when I visited Izawa-no-miya(伊雑宮) of Ise Grand Shrine(伊勢神宮), I  saw the holy energy spiritually and clearly and received the revelation saying “I’ll change the vertical flows to the horizontal ones.” The Sun God that gave it to me is the super-ancient God that had much to do with the creation of human beings and has spiritual effects on people in foreign countries as well as Japan. Also, you can write the words on Tanzaku from top to bottom in katakana characters of Chinese characters. Or you can do it in a foreign language from left to right using two lines and then stand up the Tanzaku.

  • as for A  Aに関して言えば
  • conscious 意識して
  • Christianity キリスト教
  • revelation 啓示
  • vertical 縦の
  • horizontal 横の
  • creation 創造

Lastly, in the case you’re a foreigner who has naturalized as a Japanese and changed your surname, use the new name in holding memorial services if you has just become naturalized and no relative has died recently.  There is no problem in it because the third incense stick can take care of your ancestors with a foreign name. In this case, however, if you feel no effectiveness of the memorial services and feel concerned about your ancestors, you can get another Tanzaku and hold a memorial service using your previous name and then the present name.

  • lastly 最後に
  • relative 親戚
  • effectiveness 効果

You can also prepare two bowls for incense sticks and put them side by side with a little space between them. Or you can hold memorial services using the previous foreign surname at first and later can change the name to the present one. Try some ways according to circumstances. You can decide which way to choose according to your level of understanding of Ise-Hakusan Dou. There’ll be no spiritual problem as long as the Tanzaku is put stably.

  • side by side 並べて
  • as long as S+V SがVする限り
  • stably しっかり

We humans are all connected to our ancestral spirits and live together with them. All spirits, no matter where they are, will be pleased to be shown compassion and gratitude by their descendants. Memorial services held by the method of Ise-Hakusan Dou do have practical effects on ancestral spirits across countries, peoples, religions and cultures.

  • connect 繋ぐ
  • be pleased 嬉しい
  • compassion  憐れみ
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち

Ignore the “God” or ” Buddha” You See When You’re Tired

森羅万象第6巻 表紙

The other day, a man in his seventies and I patrolled my neighborhood at night as an activity of the neighborhood association. We waled about three kilometers. At first, I care about his walking pace but it turned out that I didn’t have to. Looking at his sneakers, I found that he walked a lot everyday. He had a good posture.

  • the other day 先日
  • neighborhood 近所
  • posture 姿勢

It is said that aging begins with legs. I often see some young men these days traipsing around with his pants being taken down to his waste. I thought I wanted to be like the old man, so I asked him questions about the food he ate, walking with him. Predictably, he said he ate small amount of vegetable, fish and rice, adding that they were a feast for him.

  • aging 老化
  • traipse だらだら歩く
  • predictably 予想通り
  • feast ご馳走

When he was in his growth period, he was truly in starved state because of the war. Living in the city, he was lacking in food. I thought that the lack of nutrition during a growth period doesn’t affect physical bodies in late years. Despite the lack of food more or less, people might have no problem as long as they are mentally healthy.

  • growth  period 成長期
  • starved 餓えた
  • lack 欠く
  • nutrition 栄養
  • affect 影響を与える

By the way, many of the people often possessed by spirits tend to have a weak body. For example, such people are apt to depend on spiritual healers mentally and physically, so that spiritual dirt of the healers, others in terms of genes, is attached to their body and as the result they become sickly later. As for an accurate fortune-teller, he/she tells a fortune by getting possessed with a spirit. So his/her clients are likely to fall sick in their late years.

  • possess 憑依する
  • be apt to~ ~しがちである
  • depend 依存する
  • attach くっ付ける
  • sickly 病気がちな
  • as for A Aに関していうと
  • accurate 正確な
  • fortune-teller 占い師

When you have a feeble body due to the lack of nutrition or are extremely tired mentally, you’re easily controlled by spirits or affected by other spiritual beings. As you get starve, you will see hallucination. This is because when your body gets weak, spiritual magnetism of a spirit affects your body. Some people might say that their physical body has become strong after their spiritual body got weak, but this is a big mistake.

  • feeble 弱い
  • due to A Aのために
  • hallucination 幻覚

In a Buddhist sect, there is a ascetic training of making believers starve, depriving them of sleep and making them tired physically for the purpose of seeing Buddha. In this training, it is important to find out whether the Buddha a believer saw is true or false. The believer explains what he saw to an experienced person and asks for the judgement. The details are top secret. They are never told even among practitioners of austerities. In light of my spiritual experiences, I think that the judgement is based on an explanation of the lower half of the body of what he saw. You can’t make the judgement based on its face.

  • sect 宗派
  • ascetic training 修行
  • deprive A of B  AからBを奪う
  • purpose 目的
  • experienced 経験豊かな
  • austerity 禁欲
  • the lower half 下半身

If you see “God” or “Buddha” when your body are mind are tired, you had better ignore it. When you’re in goof condition physically and mentally, you don’t see any strange beings, and you’ll just be grateful to everything in everyday life, when you’re touching the highest spiritual being without any visible form. This is the highest state of Kannagara, or being with God. In short, to see ghosts or demons would mean that you are far from enlightenment because your mind is still so low a level as to tune in to such low-level spiritual beings.

Warning by God against Cannibalism

森羅万象第6巻 表紙

When I had dinner with a doctor who studied hereditary diseases, a topic of AIDS came up. According to him, researches on ancient remains of a race with a custom of cannibalism, or eating humans, and on its descendants show that they suffered from strange immune diseases just like AIDS. He assumes that if humans begin to eat each other they are programmed to die out by God because of immunologic abnormality . He said “the protein is the key to understanding it.”

  • hereditary disease 遺伝病
  • remain 遺骨
  • custom 慣習
  • suffer 苦しむ
  • immune 免疫の
  • assume ではないかと思う
  • die out 絶滅する
  • abnormality 異常
  • protein たんぱく質

Taking in food that has the same DNA structure causes harm to human bodies. AIDS, to be sure, is caused by two men with the same male chromosomes having sex. The protein of sperm of a man is absorbed in the other man through his rectum. I think it is the same as cannibalism. Men and women have chromosomes different from each other in arrangement, so normal sex has no problem with protein. As to the cause of AIDS, there are a lot of theories, though.

  • take in A  Aを取り込む

  • harm 害
  • to be sure 確かに
  • chromosome 染色体
  • sperm 精子
  • absorb 吸収する
  • rectum 直腸
  • arrangement 配列
  • as to A Aに関して

What I’m concerned about is genetically modified seeds and fertilizer. When a bug eats a plant whose genes are modified so that it can produce a particular protein, the bag dies. Animals and humans eat such genetically modified plants everyday. It can be said in this sense that beef is composed of such genetically modified plants. I feel that modifying protein is against natural laws. Problems of chemical fertilizers will take form next year (2009) due to international export restrictions of them. We are going to be more and more dependent on the chemical fertilizers with unknown side effects.

However, if you begin to worry about it too much, you cannot eat anything. When I take a trip, I myself will be eating various such foods. I think I have no choice but to accept such a social trend. But it’s important to know the problem. With the knowledge, you’d make a different choice in eating out. My gut is telling me that you had better avoid beef when you eat at a low-priced restaurant. In light of the vibration frequency of the earth and food situations, it is advisable to avoid beef. If you want very much to eat meat, why don’t you eat quality pork or chicken in small amount? I don’t say you must not eat any meat, but the quality of meat is important. I think cheap imported beef will cause your digestive organs such as bowels to breed. If you eat too much meat, you might have bloody stools for a few days.

There are Various Levels of Holy Spirits

森羅万象第6巻 表紙

All gods originate from one being. This one being branched off into numerous gods. You can call the being whatever you like, but all the efforts will be in vain. Having named the being carelessly is the cause of conflicts all over the world. It is something fundamental with no name. If I dare to describe what it is like, all I can say is that it is formless and full of love.

  • originate 起源となる
  • branch off 枝分かれする
  • numerous 無数の
  • in vain 無駄に
  • cause 原因
  • conflict 争い
  • fundamental 根源的な
  • dare to~ あえて〜する

A part of this fundamental being diverged and multiplied. Each energy bodies got together according to their characteristics to form a universe. I feel the fundamental being branched off into roughly three lines, from which what we call gods originate. This process is described in Kojiki(古事記), Japan’s oldest historical record, and a lot of Western myths hint it as well. Each energy body made its own dimensional space in the universe, in which there are a lot of dimensional stages.

  • diverge 分岐する
  • multiply 増殖する
  • myth 神話
  • hint ほのめかす

The farther an energy body is from the fundamental being, the more clearly its characteristics appear and it begins to be “self-assertive.” People called the energy body various names according to its character. Lower level energy bodies have its own form and individuality. So if you see a holy spirit like a human, it must be one residing in a world near the World of Reality. I call such spiritual beings personal gods. They are the ones very far from the fundamental being.

  • self-assertive 自己主張的な
  • various 様々な
  • individuality 個性
  • personal god 人格神

Because of its closeness to the World of Reality, personal gods have a stronger power to bring about benefits we wish for or miracles than the fundamental being. In short, personal gods are not high in spirituality but have a strong influence on the World of Reality.

  • bring about A  Aを引き起こす
  • benefit ご利益
  • in short 要するに

The fundamental being is ubiquitous and exists right here, right now. You and I are a part of the fundamental being. Nature, stars and everything as far as you can see are manifestations of the fundamental being. Therefore it cannot interfere with nor favor each individual. In the eyes of the fundamental being, everything is perfectly fair.

  • ubiquitous 遍在している
  • nature 自然
  • manifestation 現れ
  • interfere with A   Aに干渉する
  • fair 公平な

Personal gods have their own name. But most of the names are nothing but phonetic equivalents representing their character and features. Their true names have been hidden. When you say the true name, your voice becomes Kotodama(言霊), or a soul of words, and its holy magnetism comes close to you. To say it in fun would have an adverse effect on you. Once you’ve conjured up the magnetism, it’s difficult to have it go back.

  • nothing but A Aでしかない
  • phonetic equivalent 当て字
  • in fun 面白半分に
  • adverse 逆の
  • conjure up A Aを呼び出す

Whenever I describe a figure or form of a god, I add “when it appears as a personal god.”  The word “god” is open to misunderstanding because sometimes it refers to a higher being with no figure or form and at other times it refers to an individualistic lower being with a humanlike character and features.

  • whenever S+V SがVする時はいつでも
  • figure 姿
  • be open to A  Aを招きやすい
  • misunderstanding 誤解
  • refer to A  Aを指す

Just as there are various dimensions and stages about holy spirits, there are various levels of psychics. They can only see according to their spiritual ability. When a dimension is beyond the spiritual ability of a psychic, the psychic can see nothing. So they argue against each other sometimes.

  • just as S+V SがVするように
  • ability 能力
  • argue against A  Aを非難する

Many psychics pretend that they have a great spiritual ability, but they are just showing others their own self-absorbed world view. They can’t propose any concrete way to lead people morally. With psychics being like this, what should suffering people do?

  • pretend ふりをする
  • self-absorbed 自己陶酔的な
  • world view 世界観
  • concrete 具体的な
  • morally 道徳的に

They do nothing but make suffering people confused and can’t show any solutions to their problems. They are irresponsible and worst and have strong jealousy against others and adhere to making money. If you observe what they say and their point of view, you’ll know what they’re jealous and afraid of. Who is right will be judged by a third person who practices the method. If you do the right thing, you will keep on doing it naturally.

  • confused 困惑した
  • solution 解決策
  • irresponsible 無責任な
  • worst 最悪の
  • jealousy 嫉妬
  • adhere 固執する
  • third person 第三者

It is a hundred percent wrong to receive money from suffering people as a consultation fee or make them buy some expensive things. True gods would never support such deeds. But you have to remember that this is different from paying to have a shinto priest pray to God. It is oblation to have a shinto priest, especially at Ise Grand Shrine, pray to God. This means your offering to God thankful shinto prayers and shrine maiden’s ceremonial dance. It is one thing to ask a favor of God and it is another to offer gratitude to God.

  • consultation  相談
  • fee 料金
  • expensive 効果な
  • deed 行為
  • pray 祈る
  • oblation 奉納

Humans and Holy Spirits Have a Different View on Happy Marriage

森羅万象第6巻 表紙

I’m often asked by a reader if his or her betrothed is a right person. Asking me such a question means that the person, or those around them, must feel anxious about his/her marriage or have some problem to worry about.

  • betrothed 婚約者
  • anxious 心配な

As you hold memorial services for your ancestors in the right way, unnecessary magnetism you receive from spirits related to you decreases. So, when you make an important decision, things will go well somehow or when you decline to do something, you can make up your mind easily.

  • magnetism  磁気
  • related 関係した
  • decrease 減る
  • decision 決定
  • go well うまくいく
  • somehow どういうわけか
  • decline 断る

Also, you won’t feel any regret or have any doubt about the consequence of your decision. You’ll come to accept everything positively. As you hold thankful memorial services for your ancestors, everything you need will be given to you if it’s necessary.

  • regret 後悔
  • doubt 疑い
  • consequence 結果
  • come to~ ~するようになる

Everyone wishes for a happy marriage. Humans and holy spirits have quite different views on happiness. The sense of happiness will also be different from person to person. Some people make much of money or sexual relationship and others consideration for others or thought. A happy marriage depends on what you think happiness is.

  • wish for A  Aを望む
  • view 見解
  • from person to person 人によって
  • make much of A  Aを重要視する
  • relationship 関係
  • consideration 思いやり

Whatever you think about happiness, there’s one thing you have to remember: in this World of Reality, where physical bodies proceed to death everyday, everything is changing and so is what you think at first, no matter what you make much of and how much you make arrangements. So if you think too much of conditions before marriage, you’re likely to repent later.

  • proceed 進む
  • condition 条件
  • repent 後悔する

In the spirit world, deities of husband and wife often appear to be an old couple who have grey hair and very old. Why do they appear to be very old? There is a God’s will there. Most old couples have already lost desire for money or freedom of their physical bodies and take care of each other. There are no conditions or stratagems between them. In this sense, the best marriage partner may be the one you can live together with even if you’ve lost everything.

  • gray hair 白髪
  • snuggle up to A Aに寄り添う
  • desire 欲望
  • stratagem 駆け引き

Well, since you don’t know your betrothed well before marriage, it’s important for you to run a simulation dispassionately. For example, if he is much older than you, you have to imagine what your marriage life will be like in twenty years. If she has children, you have to think whether you can get along well with them.

  • dispassionately  冷静に
  • get along  やっていく

Also, you have to think about the relationship with the other’s parents or siblings. Or when he falls sick or loses his job, you have to ask yourself whether you’re determined to support him. If you can make up your mind to accept all these difficulties, you will feel less anxious about the marriage.

  • sibling 兄弟
  • fall sick 病気になる
  • be determined to~ 〜する決心をしている

As you can have gratitude for the present situations and feel happy for just being kept alive, you’ll come to be able to respect your marriage partner. You could forgive your disagreeable husband or nagging wife, couldn’t you?

  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • the present situations 現状
  • disagreeable 嫌な
  • nagging 口うるさい

The Way to the Mind of God

森羅万象第6巻 表紙

There have been a lot of ways or methods to seek for God since ancient times. But most of them are depending on a thing outside of yourself, not inside of your heart.

  • seek for A  Aを探し求める
  • ancient times 古代
  • depend 頼る

To search for God outside of yourself involves a lot of risks. You could end up spending a lot of time, energy and money over many years and when you look back on you life, you would regret what you did, thinking “Was this faith right?” It’s a shame that you realize what you did after spending so many precious years. You could learn a lesson from the experience, of course, but it’s still regrettable for you to realize it after wasting such precious things.

  • involve 伴う
  • end up ~ing 結局は〜するはめになる
  • look back on A  Aを振り返る
  • regret 後悔する
  • shame 残念なこと
  • regrettable 悲しむべき
  • waste 無駄にする

People who are in the middle of believing in something outside of themselves often say that they received benefits and they’re happy now. However, no matter how happy they are now, they don’t know what will become of them in the future, what will happen in the end. In short, you can’t be sure if your faith is right or wrong unless you spend a long time. This is like gambling. Will your faith lead you to God or Devil? Every religion will say only good things. After all, to search outside of yourself for God would is to gamble.

  • benefit 利益」
  • in the end 最終的には
  • in short 要するに
  • unless S+V SがVしない限り

Well, what is the faith leading to God without any risk? Seek for the way to Inner God inside yourself by tracing the spiritual cord of your ancestors. Inner God inside your heart leads to the Original God. If you do so, you’re sure to feel the true, great God in your heart instead of a personal god, when you will experience an absolute sense of security in the face of this World of Reality.

  • lead to A  Aに通じる
  • trace 辿る
  • ancestor 先祖
  • be sure to~  きっと〜する
  • instead of A   Aではなく
  • absolute 絶対的な
  • sense of security 安心感

As you continue holding thankful memorial services for your ancestors, the spiritual chord of your ancestors leading to God will be clearer and clearer, and you’ll find that your sense of security is different from what it used to be. Fortunate things to be thankful for will actually happen to you. It might be that you come to realize what you have been taking for granted is actually a fortune thing. But anyway you’ll begin to know what the true happiness is.

  • thankful   感謝の
  • fortunate 幸運な
  • come to~ 〜するようになる
  • take A for granted Aを当たり前と思う
  • anyway いずれにせよ

As you practice the thankful memorial services for your ancestors, you’ll come to sympathize with the holy spirit inside yourself and have a chance to visit a shrine where an outer god related to your Inner God resides for the purpose of offering gratitude. Interaction between you and God will begin.

  • sympathize 同調する
  • feel like ~ing 〜したい気がする
  • related 関係した
  • reside 住む
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • interaction 相互作用

Seek for Inner God inside yourself and offer gratitude to an outer god courteously. Holding memorial services for your ancestors is the safest and fastest way to reach God. By doing so, you can trace back to God with the use of the spiritual chord of your ancestors influencing you most.

  • courteously 丁重に
  • trace back to A Aに遡る
  • influence 影響する

This method comprises gratitude for being kept alive and the old spiritual essence of Yorishiro(寄り代)which has existed since ancient times. Yorishiro is an esoteric technique of ancient shinto and forms the basis of its secret rituals. In holding a memorial service for your ancestors, you are conjuring your ancestral spirits to the tanzaku(短冊), a strip of Japanese paper, or the memorial tablet. This method has a strong practical power because you’re making use of the spiritual cord of your family line which has a very strong influence on you. Recent occult methods are all infantile and can’t even compete with this one.

  • comprise 〜から成る
  • esoteric 秘儀の
  • ancient shinto 古神道
  • ritual 儀式
  • conjure 呼ぶ
  • memorial tablet 位牌
  • practical 実際的な
  • make use of A Aを利用する
  • infantile 幼稚な
  • compete 競合する

In holding this simple memorial service, if you should feel bad effects or be scared, just stop doing it. In case you are obsessed with a wrong notion or possessed with spiritual beings of the World of the Dead, you will experience discomfort due to your spiritual dirt. In such a case, just start with paying attention to ordinary things to be thankful for.

  • effect 影響
  • scared 怖い
  • be obsessed  with A  Aに取りつかれている
  • notion 観念
  • experience discomfort 違和感を感じる
  • dirt 垢

If you’ve made up your mind positively to hold memorial services to express your thanks to your ancestors, whether or not you experience discomfort in the process of your spiritual dirt being eliminated, keep on doing it at ease. You can also prepare yourself for the purification of the spiritual light of the sun in the years to come. Normally, you won’t feel any discomfort in holding it. Most of you will feel warm at heart. You don’t have to be worried or scared about.

  • make up one’s mind 決心する
  • express 表す
  • whether or not S+V SがVしようがしまいが
  • process 家庭
  • eliminate 取り除く
  • at ease 安心して
  • prepare 準備させる

The spiritual light of the sun was intense today, too. Human beings will split into two: those who regain their youth and those who become mentally ill. They will do so regardless of their social status or where they live.

  • intense 強烈な
  • split 分かれる
  • regain 取り戻す

Your Conscience and Ancestral Spirits Never Betray You

森羅万象第6巻 表紙

Visiting a website, I’m often led by my kenzoku-shin , a kind of guardian spirit, to visit another. I get a lot of information from my readers, too. Some websites are very dangerous. For example, there is a website trying to meet the visitors directly with the purpose of swindling them,  a website of a psychic or healer who tries to meet a female visitor to assault her sexually and spiritually, a website with the purpose of both and so on.

  • lead A to~ Aに〜するよう仕向ける
  • with the purpose of ~ing 〜する目的で
  • swindle だまし取る
  • assault 襲う

A website I was led to visit was especially awful. As soon as I visited the website, I got visions of the website owner’s bad deeds one after another. My kenzoku-shin, working under God, makes me see such bad deeds to inform me that there are such evil people in society these days. That they are being watched by the spiritual being in another world means that they have already been connected by a spiritual cord to where they go after they die.

  • especially 特に
  • awful 酷い
  • as soon as S+V SがVするやいなや

The owner of the website was advertising remote healing. According to him, the healing costs 20000 yen every time and a client has to take it several times. The client pays the money without seeing the face of the owner, expecting the effect one-sidedly.

  • advertise 広告する
  • effect 効果
  • one-sidedly 一方的に

The client doesn’t know that the owner only makes her transfer the money and do nothing. He is thinking that he can deceive her by e-mail saying he is supporting her spiritually. He has female customers send her picture first and if she is his type, he tries to meet her directly seeing the reaction of her. The owner had such an awful appearance that I wanted to say to him “Are you OK? You’d better go to the hospital before pretending and advertising that you can cure diseases.” That’s why he was advertising the remote healing, which doesn’t need to show his face.

  • transfer 振り込む
  • deceive 騙す
  • appearance 容姿
  • had better~ 〜したほうがよい
  • cure 治す
  • disease 病気

Once he succeeds in winning a female repeater, he has her send her whole body picture with excuses. If the women is his type, he tries to meet her, saying “You’re my special client, so I’ll give you a meeting session.” He charges her a lot more money than a remote healing and brainwashes her into having sex with him. If such women wake up from the brainwashing, a lot of problems arise. They can have skin diseases due to spiritual dirt as well as being swindled of her money. Or they can suffer from venereal infection from the evil healer. When complaints against him increase, he shuts down the website suddenly and changes the place where he meets his clients. In the case of such a website owner being a woman, it is likely that she sells expensive spiritual merchandise half-forcibly. She makes her client buy expensive spiritual goods threatening her well.

If these kinds of web owners close their websites, they start up the same kind of business again on the Internet using a different name. Such people will increase in number as the economy cools down. It is difficult to earn as much as 20000 yen a day in the real world. What they do is the same as a skillful remittance fraud. If the owner is a good-looking but bud guy and repeats the business in a skillful manner which doesn’t appear to be a crime, the number of victims will increase much more.

Those who call themselves a healer and advertise remote healing or meeting sessions are a hundred percent corrupt. There’s no exception. It is because they have fallen into the Devildom that they can do such a thing. Righteous gods would never help their business. Genuine healers never accept money nor need advertising. There are some self-appointed healers who insist that they can take on bad karma of clients in exchange for money, but this is nothing more than a deceptive logic. Brainwashed persons would say the healing was effectual. But if this is so, this is actually thanks to their ancestors, which is a fortunate case. Otherwise, their life span would be shortened in exchange for immediate improvement caused by a spiritual being behind the evil healer.

With the reduction of the World of the Dead due to the spiritual light of the sun, simple frauds unrelated to any spiritual being seem to be increasing. It will be more and more important for you to believe in your conscience(=Inner God) and your ancestral spirits only. They never betray you until the very end of your life. They will accompany you to the other world. This is what Shaka said just before he died, “Turn to your own light.”

Life is a Recording Time

森羅万象第6巻 表紙

There is a custom of offering flowers to a Buddhist altar where a portrait picture of a deceased person is decorated. This is practiced out of consideration for the ancestral spirit. It is not the flowers themselves that reach the spirit but the feeling of wanting to offer the flowers and the spiritual magnetism arising from the act of going to, say, a flower shop, a field or a garden to get the flower.

  • custom 習慣
  • offer 捧げる
  • deceased person 故人
  • decorate 飾る
  • consideration 思いやり
  • magnetism 磁気
  • arise 生じる

So, for example, if you don’t want your husband to think of you as neglecting your duty as a wife and you offer flowers to your Buddhist altar, thinking “This is a bother,” not the beautiful flowers but your reluctance to do it reaches your ancestors. Your feelings in preparing the flowers are attached to the living flowers as magnetism. Therefore, if you find yourself having such a bad feeing, think it over, feel sorry and change your mind, thinking “I want to please my ancestors,” the negative magnetism is overwritten and revised.

  • think of A as B AをBと考える
  • neglect 怠る
  • a bother やっかいなもの
  • reluctance 嫌々な気持ち
  • attach くっつける
  • overwrite 上書きする
  • revise 修正する

Human lives are like a recording time when you engrave various magnetism of your thought and action into your spiritual body. The duration of life corresponds to the recording time. Some have a recording capacity of 60 years and others 80 years. Some extend the capacity by exerting their originality and making efforts and others shorten it by doing bad deeds.

  • engrave 刻む
  • spiritual body 霊体
  • duration 寿命
  • correspond 相当する
  • extend 延ばす
  • shorten 短くする
  • deed 行い

When the recording is finished, the magnetism seems to be absorbed like a magnet into a playback device in another dimension. To which playback device the magnetism is attracted depends on its content. The magnetism is sorted out according to fields like a showcase in a video rental shop. The DVD are about action, education, love romance, pornography, crime, hell and so on.

  • absorb 吸収する
  • device 装置
  • sort out A  Aを分類する

In the playback device, what was recorded in this world is played repeatedly over and over again. Taken out of the playback device, fortunately, we are in the middle of recording. Even if there were bad scenes during the recording, you can overwrite and revise it to make a happy ending by recording good scenes. Well, what are you recording now? The recording time is limited. Why don’t you make the most of it?

  • in the middle of A  Aの真っ最中で
  • make the most of A  Aを最大限に活用する

What the Activities of the Sun will Bring about

森羅万象第6巻 表紙

According to news reports, a phenomenon that sunspots didn’t appear at all occurred in August of 2008 for the first time in a hundred years. This means that the sun has become inactive. According to an explanation of Henrik Svensmark, a Danish astrophysicist,

→The magnetic field of the sun will be weak.

→Cosmic rays reaching the surface of the earth will increase. The magnetic field of the sun keeps cosmic rays, including harmful ones, from reaching the earth.

→ There are data suggesting that the increase in cosmic rays adds to the amount of cloud over the earth. Because of the increase of cloud, the amount of rain is increasing lately. Without the increase of cloud, humans could die out due to the harmful harmful cosmic rays reaching the surface of the earth.

→When cloud increases, the amount of sunlight will decrease, causing the earth to cool.

  • sunspot 太陽黒点
  • cosmic ray 宇宙線
  • surface 表面
  • harmful 有害な
  • suggest 示唆する
  • add to A Aを増加させる

In short, as sunspots decrease in number, the temperature of the earth is likely to drop. In the reverse case, the temperature is likely to rise. That is, the unstable state of sunspots causes the instability of the temperature of the earth.

  • in short 要するに
  • temperature 温度
  • reverse 逆の
  • that is つまり
  • instability 不安定さ

For example, in August this year, the temperature in Hokkaido renewed the record of its minimum temperature. Also, Mt. Fuji was covered with snow as early as on 9, August, renewing the record for the first time in 94 years. As the number of sunspots decreases, signs of cooling are appearing in fact.

  • renew 更新する
  • record 記録
  • sign 兆候

On the other hand, the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) expects that the activities of the sun will be more and more intense and that humans will be enveloped in electromagnetic fields they have never experienced before. That is, in terms of the modern science, there are two opposite forecasts; one is the forecast that the global warming trend will continue and the other is the forecast that the global cooling will occur. The latter is in the minority, though.

  • intense 強烈な
  • envelope 包む
  • opposite 反対の
  • forecast 予測

According to my spiritual vision of the future world, the temperature of the earth is stable and about 20 degree centigrade on average. Since the future world comes after the change of the dimension of the earth and human bodies, it seems to have nothing to do with the present world. But a divine message I received says that the World of Reality has already begun to move toward the future world, corresponding to the revelation of the past that extremely high and low temperatures would alternate.

  • 0n average 平均して
  • correspond 一致する
  • alternate 交互する

Though I said the temperature of the future world is about 20 on average, when there are 15 days of 40 degree centigrade and 15days of zero degree, the average temperature is twenty. If this kind of situation should happen in the near future, activities of the whole world would be affected so much. The signs of this big change in temperature have been appearing recently. The holy message says “The change is going to be projected onto the World of Reality in June of 2009.” Extreme natural disasters are going to happen.

  • affect 影響する
  • project 投射する

Also, a divine message I received last year says “Be careful on September 18, 2008,” meaning that the state of Japan on that day will be projected onto the whole world like a prototype. If Japan has nothing disastrous on that day, so will the rest of the world. But if some serious problem happens to Japan before the day and the national mood is bad, such a bad state of Japan will spread to the other countries. However, I’m sure things will be all right now that more people have started reminding themselves of gratitude for being kept alive. I had not been allowed to make public the contents of revelations suggesting concrete dates, but this time I was told by a holy guardian spirit to write about it just once.

  • disastrous 破滅的な
  • now that S+V 今やSはVするので
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち

On the day I wrote about Futonorito brown rice, various kinds of readers appeared on the comment field and the fabric of human relationships was revealed. There are a lot of people these days who try to blame any problem to the government, public administrations, others and so on. They are the kind of people who are actually dependent on them. Human beings have to strive to breed conscience in this Wold of Reality, turning to their own Inner God. You don’t have to believe what I’m saying, of course. All you have to do is feel something in your heart to read my words. It is karma between you and me whether you feel something or not.

  • brown rice 玄米
  • blame A on B AをBのせいにする

The Position of Children Who are Hated by Their Parents and Have Nowhere to Run


There seem to be a lot of parents recently who have children but can’t accpet them instinctively and hate them. They don’t know why, and worry themselves about that. Some psychics might say plausibly to such parents “Your children must have been tortured by you in the previous life. So they’ve come into this world as your children to get rid of their karma. Now your children and you have had the place to learn from each other.” However, if you were told that you’ve got such karma, no solution would come of it. They’re parents and children in fact, and they’re facing reality in each of their positions.

  • recently 最近
  • instinctively 本能的に
  • plausibly もっともらしく
  • torture 苦しめる
  • previous 以前の
  • get rid of A    Aを消し去る
  • in fact 実際

In this case, such children are in a difficult position. An adult wouldn’t bear with it. They have nowhere to run. If you’re an office worker, you can quit the job when you’re bullied in the office, for example. If you’re a grown-up, you can leave your house t0 get a job when you’re abused by your parents. But such children are beaten up and blamed all the time by their parents. If they’re elementary school children, they can’t leave house to work and even if they manage to run away from home, they’ll be taken into custody by the police and when they come back home, they’ll end up being scolded all the more harshly by their parents. They have to go to school in such a family environment when families should be the place for emotional support.

  • bear 耐える
  • bully いじめる
  • abuse  虐待する
  • elementary school 小学校
  • end up ~ing 結局は〜することになる
  • scold 叱る
  • harshly 厳しく
  • emotional support 心の支え

Children can be cruel sometimes to others. Children who are not taken good care of by their parents, for example, would be likely to wear the same clothes every day, forget something to school, be scolded by teachers, and be bullied by classmates who say “You stink!” They’re leading their lives, envious of other happy children who are loved by their parents.

  • cruel 残酷な
  • envious 羨ましい

However, they may be able to bear with this kind of thing, taking their mind off. What makes them feel lonely beyond description is when they find an aspect of their mother’s sexuality.They want their mother to be a mother of their own. A mere idea of their mother being an ordinary adult woman would make them sad. If their mother is dependent on a man other than their father, they will feel themselves a nuisance or a gooseberry,though there are a lot of various cases. This situation is all the more agonizing to the children because they can’t go anywhere. They might be living everyday aware of death with adults around them paying no attention to them.

  • take one’s mind off 気を紛らわす
  • feel lonely 孤独を感じる
  • beyond description  言い表せないほど
  • aspect 側面
  • mere 単なる
  • dependent 依存して
  • other than A A以外の
  • nuisance 邪魔者
  • aware 意識して
  • pay attention 注意を払う

Such children, when they grow up, might take revenge on their parents or abandon them when they’re old without hesitation if such children had been kicked out of their house in their childhood. Also, when they themselves have a family in the future, they may do the same thing to their children. Some of them, of course, may be the opposites who love their children, thinking of their parents as an example of how not to behave.

  • revenge 復讐
  • hesitation ためらい
  • opposite 逆の人
  • think of A as B AをBと考える
  • example 実例

Human beings are caught in several patters and repeat one of them unless they are aware of their Inner God in their heart. George Ivanovich Gurdjieff, a Russian with a mysyical idea, asserted that human beings, unless they are awaken,  are like robots who repeat the same response as only a machine. But you can never awaken if you don’t cut off and get rid of the magnetism of a vicious circle passed on by your ancestors and the negative magnetism you’ve made in this world.

  • unless S+V SがVしない限り
  • aware 気がついて
  • mystical idea 神秘思想
  • assert 断言する
  • response 反応
  • awaken 目覚める
  • get rid of A Aをなくす

The ways to cut off the negative magnetism are the following;

  1. Holding memory services for your ancestors
  2. Reminding yourself of gratitude in every-day life, meaning being grateful for your present situations with the thought “Thank you so much for keeping us alive”
  • remind oneself of A Aを想起する
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち

Before you hope for solutions for family problems, you have to practice these two things first. And also, it’s important that you have gratitude to a spirit of your dead child when you offer the third incense stick during a memorial service. If you do so, ill feelings between parents and children will disappear before you know. Your problems will resolve themselves one by one.

  • solution 解決策
  • incense stick 線香
  • ill feelings わだかまり
  • resolve oneself 解決する
