Secret to Happiness

     For the last few thousand years, many ideologies, religion, beliefs, teachings including the modern Law of Attraction type of pragmatic methods has been presented. The basis to all of these ideas comes from the humanly desire of happiness.  Its also a human instinct to find a way to live in a restful mind.

    No matter what, the best technique is the power from within that cares for others, sympathy, mercy, in Buddhist term, compassion. all the acts of kindness and thoughtfulness. This is the most powerful tool. You become the mirror to yourself. The inner beauty will bring beautiful outcomes. 

     Even if you were cursed by a powerful anathema, when your mind is strong enough to have compassion to the one cursing you, you could easily repel the energy back to him. The energy returns to the giver and he will be destroyed by his own power. If you are saying the *kotodama ikashite-itadaite arigato-gozaimasu everyday, being modest with a sense of gratitude in your daily life, you dont need to worry about any curse reaching you. It will clearly bounce the energy back to the giver without even knowing.

     Same about money. As long as you have the desire for more money, you will be a failure. When you naturally feel that you want to make people happy and be giving, god will bring you the money you need.  There is a spiritual law, like draws like. The magnetic energy will attract the same kind of energy you are emanating. The desire to want more money will attract low spirits with similar desires. Your luck will turn down.  When your desire is to be giving, you will attract the higher spirits who are willing to help.

     Until the 90s (Showa period in Japan), Earth was bounded by the energy from the moon and the Law of Gravity, Attraction and Manifestation was active. Now from the Heisei period (after the 90s), the Earth is now bounded by the energy from the sun.  The sun is a giver. It gives us light, heat and electro-magnetic power. Now our driving force has to switch over from attracting to giving.  This is a big shift of the Universal Law. If you are still working on the Law of Attraction, your energy force is going against the current flow. And it may bring you unfortunate results. Please be careful.

     The Western mind is said to be based on the ancient way of living as hunters. If you dont have it, you go and get it kind of mind set. This idea seems to be the hidden base of their ideology and religion. In Japan, we also had a custom of hunting. But prayers were always said to give thanks to the lives of the animals. In the fall, the shrines would hold ceremonies to send gratitude for the good harvest. The custom of celebrating the harvest in the fall is seen all over the world, but we must not forget to be in gratitude in our daily lives.  In Japan, still today, we always say itadakimasu meaning thank you for the food before we eat our meals, also gochisosama after the meal to send gratitude once again.

    From now on, it is essential to be consciously aware about compassion and gratitude in our daily lives. When you are, the power from the sun will support you and change your life a great deal. No one can go against the enormous power of the big sun waves.

*kotodama: vibrational energy of words

Ikashite-itadaite arigato-gozaimasu
Thank you for letting us live

I would like to spread the Gratitude Awareness towards ancestral spirits and everything around us so 5% of the world population will start acting on it on a daily basis.
