A Heartfelt Thought... 3

While my father was doing business with the hospital in Osaka, Mr.Hamuro was a doctor and a manager of the hospital. Mr.Hamuro had always tried to support my father in many ways. Even after my father’s retirement, Mr.Hamuro kept sending letters trying to continue a friendship. Through my psychic reading, I feel that Mr.Hamuro had some sort of problem with my father in a past life and now trying to make peace. They each carry the karma of Fujiwara and Tachibana Family, so I sense that Mr.Hamuro simply couldn’t stop doing something for my father. He probably didn't know why he feels that way. In spite of Mr.Hamuro’s heartfelt effort, my father still didn’t go to Kasuga-Taisha. It was very interesting for me to see the reaction of the descendents carrying the karma of their ancestors.

In the later days, Mr.Hamuro’s face was like an Okina (翁). Those who have dedicated their life for a divine purpose will turn into an Okina face like you see in the Noh play mask. A very soft, light smile. Only those who had contacted a high rank god spirit above the 7th dimension of the Worlds of the Gods would start to look like an Okina. The present Emperor has started to have an Okina face. Living in this dimension, they already start to look like a god.

I sense that when a god appears in a human like form he would be wearing an Ikansokutai (衣冠束帯), traditional formal court dress, with an Okina face. A goddess would have an Otafuku (お多福) face. A smiling face with eyes slanting downwards with big round cheeks.

The man with an Okina face said “God has already given everything to people. All we need to do is to realize that.” In a way, this is a very tough thing. What happens when he/she doesn’t come to a realization? He/she will only be the way they are or become worse.

A better one or worse, our future depends on each and one of us. 

In the recent election for the House of Representatives, the nation truly worried for the country and made a serious decision. An understanding came to me through this election. I reconfirmed that the god has given his life in our hands of humans. The future can change. It all depends on us. Whatever the result, god will accept.

We must choose to live. We must make an effort to live.

1. By sending gratitude towards our ancestral spirits, through each family spiritual line, the healing energy can spread to all human beings.

2. Pay a visit to the shrine close to where you live (Uji-gami jinjya). You have the fate to live in that area. Therefore you have a relationship with your local god. Send gratitude to your uji-gami (local god). This will help the Kuni-tama (国魂), the god that protects this country, and give him power. This energy will extend to help the Mother Earth to heal as well. Not only will it help Japan, but it will help the world to become a place of peace.

The gods does not help each individual, but he/she will try to protect the leaders, such as the Emperor or the Prime Minister. We chose our leaders. We must be responsible to support them as well.

A Heartfelt Thought ... 2

The reason why my father said that he didn’t want to go to Kasuga-Taisha is because he wanted to respect his own ancestors. Kasuga-Taisha worships a personal god of Fujiwara family.

For generations, as a Shintoist, my father’s family has been worshipping God Susanoo. Our family has been the keeper of Susanoo’s onizuka mound. We have been told that our family’s root comes from Tachibana (橘氏) Family. And that the Tachibana Family’s root god is Susanoo. (The famous Kamibito and psychic of Showa, Matsuzo Matsushita told my father that the Tachibana Family is the ancestor of Masashige Kusunoki,a notorious samurai general of Kamakura period, and my father’s family.)

The big four noble family in Japanese history are Genji, Heishi, Fujiwara-shi and Tachibana-shi. Out of the four, Tachibana Family has taken over the karma of God Susanoo. This family had experienced the same calamity as in the mythology of Susanoo.

According to the Mythology of Japan, Susanoo had committed numerous sins at Takamagahara (heaven)
and was expelled from the World of the Gods. He was sent to Ne-no-kuni (Hell).

The truth behind this incident was that Susanoo took the blame of other gods. These gods were the bureaucratic members who were positioned under Amaterasu. Why did these gods commit such crime? The whole system of the World of the Gods was running in a pyramid like operation. Goddess Amaterasu was at the top of the pyramid and other gods lined up under her. Then God Susanoo suddenly appeared out of the blue with the same level of power as Amaterasu. The other gods were afraid of him and thought he might take over the whole system. So they laid a snare. The gods destroyed Amaterasu’s precious farm and blamed it on Susanoo. For some reason, Susanoo never said anything against the blame and silently went to Hell.

The same thing happened with the Fujiwara Family and Tachibana Family during the early Heian Period (794~). The Fujiwara Family succeeded in curry favor with the Imperial Family and became very powerful. The incident called “Jouwa no Hen (承和の変)” is one famous affair where Tachibana Family was trapped just like Susanoo in the mythology. The family that carried the karma of Susanoo has repeatedly experienced exile in history.

Even in the modern day Japan, the blaming on one person is still happening. This election of The House of Representatives was to blame former Prime Minister Aso. Our society has a habit to make one person take blame and be expelled. Is it really just that person’s fault? We have to think about that.

Going back to Kasuga-Taisha, the actual origin of this shrine is way older than 1300 years ago when the Fujiwara Family became the Uji-gami of this shrine.

Way back in the ancient days, Kasuga-Taisha was a shrine to worship Mt.Mikasa (御蓋山) as a god. Therefore, this shrine takes a very unusual style of merging the ancestral spirits and a god spirit.

The Fujiwara Family worked on foreign affairs and had a chance to learn a Tao spell from China. They learned the secret technique to worship their ancestral spirits together with a god spirit of the mountain in order to sublimate their spiritual level. This is how they succeeded in this World of Reality.

To be continued…
