Being ordinary is better

    This photo was taken by one of the attentive reader of my blog. I sense he has a strong connection with Ise Jingu (The Grand Shrine of Ise).

    Every year around the time of chushu no meigetsu (autumn full moon), Ise Jingu holds a festival. They put out a contest for tanka and haiku (traditional Japanese style short and long poems). The selected best poems are read along with the traditional musical performance as offerings to the gods. The ceremony is called Jingu kangetsu-kai and it is held on the day of full moon somewhere between August and September. It is usually held at the Gegū (the outer shrine) but this year it was held at Naigū (the inner shrine) due to some construction.

     The authors of the selected poems are invited to attend the ceremony. At the lower end of the photo, the eboshi hat worn by the gakushi (ceremonial players of instruments) is showing. The “e” of eboshi means bird. All shrine priests and music players wear this hat that signifies a bird. The ancient Shinto understanding is that the birds are messengers of the gods. The reason why the symbolic creature is not a dragon or a snake is because the gods are trying to show us the future where the Time of the Phoenix (bird) will come after going through a long period of the Time of the Dragon that we are now staged. The dragons will soon evolve into phoenixes.

     These figures are symbolic images that reflect on the basis of civilization and culture of certain periods. The “long” feature of dragons and snakes are symbolic to the present time. When seen from the sky, trains and roads look “long”, a crawling creature like the snakes. An organized long line of people inkling a war. Fossilized dinosaurs (dragons) is said to be the source of oil. This all happened or is happening during the Time of the Dragons when people fight for land (earth) boundary.  We will soon be evolving into the Time of the Phoenix where we will be borderless and free as a bird.

    In the sky, there is the sun. The new era will be a civilization based on solar energy and flying freely. That is the message from the heavenly gods. We will be able to use telepathy. The development of the internet is the beginning of this new era. The high-techs will evolve to greater abilities.

     In the photo, you can see a large white aura emanating from the gakushi players and the two big circle of lights floating in the air. One is a light green. This is the same color aura of the god spirit I often see when I go to the Gegū. The light blue one, I see at the Naigū. It is very rare to witness such big god spirits. It proves that the gakushi players are living a faithful and honest life. Otherwise, they would not have appeared.

   Humans work hard and make efforts because they really don’t understand about life and god. And that is a good thing. Being ordinary, trying hard, making efforts and moving forward step by step.

    We just keep moving on. It is the same in space. There is an eternal current and breathing. Going into meditation or so called “spiritual path”, will stop you from growing. You think it’s a faster way to enlightenment but in fact, it’s delaying your life. It’s good to have problems and struggle through life and being ordinary. When you work hard, for sure, one day you will see a change for the better.

Think about your wishes lightly

    Sometimes, I come across thinking, “hmmm I wish it will turn out this way” and often it actually comes true. The secret to make it happen is to wish lightly. 

   What becomes an obstacle to the manifestation is in fact your ego (valuing only on self and not caring for others). Your natural life force is wasted when you have egoistic thoughts and your spiritual power is weakened. Thus, the more energy you put into thinking about egoistic wishes, the more spiritual power is wasted and leaked which makes it almost possible for your wish to come true. 

    So if you want your wish to come true, don’t strongly pray for it. Just keep in mind lightly. And simply focus on the act, “what can I do now to make it happen?”

    I see many people just praying strongly and not putting any effort in the act. Sometimes, wishes do come true only through prayers. But it may have come true without doing so.  When an egoistic wish comes true through strong praying, it often involves an egoistic spirit coming to help you in the materialization. Once this spirit is involved, they always require conditions in exchange. You would loose something in exchange for your gain.

     The fee charging psychic readers/ channelers are in contract with these evil minded spirits. Often they don’t even know this fact. You loose money as well as your life force to the spirits. The reader’s health is often affected. The only spirits that can truly help you is your direct ancestral spirits. True righteous gods don’t interfere in personal gains. They will support those who are working hard without any expectations. And when you are naturally in gratitude for your life, the deities will be pushing your back to assist you help the world or community and money will flow into your life naturally.
    Strong wishful prayer is the same as an incantation in ancient terms.  What actually happens is that you are enlarging your ego energy to become an independent living apparition (生霊). You are wearing out yourself both physically and mentally. This part of self will bring you down.  

  So once again, when you have a wish: 1. Think lightly. 2. Be in gratitude to your ancestral spirits and the gods that you are led to live.

    Accumulating the energy of gratitude is the best savings that will make your life go smoothly and effortlessly. Money can only buy you material things, but the savings of true gratitude can buy you both material things and life force/conditions. Unlike money or material things, this savings can be brought even to life after death. You will be surprised how much it is worth when you are up there. The more you use your energy in trying to help others, the more savings you will make. This is also another fact.

Live truthfully to your good will and everything will be all right.
