Since it’s the New Years time, lets talk about a fanciful fable.
In the Kojiki, God Izanami and Izanagi (parents of Amaterasu) are said to have done a “Kuni-umi-no-shinji”(a divine work of the land-making). The husband and wife deities stood on Ama-no-ukihashi, a bridge that connects this world and Heaven or the Worlds of the Gods, and used the divine sword to stir the open sea.
The Ama-no-ukihashi bridge, I sense, is a vehicle to travel between one dimension and another. I see it in a cloud like form that is made out of magnetic energy ball
in five colors.
The Japanese mythology tells, the couple deities put their power together and stirred the ocean from this five-color cloud with the Ame-no-nuboko, the divine sword. When they took the sword out from the ocean, the seawater dripped from the tip of the sword and created lands.
This story has many layers of hidden meanings. One of the hidden meanings is about Kuni-umi (land-making) that could be interpreted as “giving birth to children.”
The “five colors” are significant colors that have been used from ancient times in rituals. It signifies the Creation, the Yin & Yang and the Five Elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, water).
So, imagine this. A couple lying on top of a five-colored futon and united. This must be a very good way to create a child. The Hoko sword is wider on the pointed end which represents the male organ. The ocean is the female.
What if the divine sword, Ame-no-nuboko, that was used to create land on Earth really existed? Wouldn’t that be exciting?
Actually, it did exist.
It existed on one of the slopes of Mt.Haku behind Hakusan-Chukyo-Jinjya. What was used in the myths had been transcribed in this World of Reality as a form in the nature. I was amazed when this photograph was shown to me. It took a form of a giant rock. Something peculiar happened to this rock and it no longer exists. To be continued…
