The path to reach the heart of Kami



    There are numerous religions and methods that have been introduced to the world from the ancient times. Most of those teachings were about believing in a savior outside of yourself and not inside your heart. When you believe in something outside of yourself, there are many risks and dangers that come along with it. People spend a lot of time, money and efforts for a long time only to realize one day, is this really the right way to live? Why am I still unfulfilled? Even if you are happy with the religion you believe in, the future is uncertain. What will come at the end? Are you sure your will reach the righteous god(Kami)? All religion will say beautiful things. But in truth, when you rely on anything outside of yourself, it is a gamble.

    Then what belief would bring you safely to the righteous god without any risk? It is the path from your innate god through the pipeline of your ancestors. Only from your innate god, would you reach the Root, the origin of all things. When you trust your innate god, you will start to sense the greater god rather than the god created by humans. When you start to sense that, you will finally feel the absolute comfort being in the realm of reality.

    When you worship your ancestral spirits with gratitude, the pipeline that reaches to the Root source will be cleared. You will start to feel grounded in a true sense. You will start to encounter numerous moments in gratefulness. Maybe those things were already there and you are simply starting to realize it. You will start to “know” the true meaning of happiness.

    When you continue the gratitude sending to your ancestors, you will naturally start to sense your personal god within. Then you might find another god related to your innate god who has been supporting you. Your direct communication with god(s) will start.

    Seek a god within yourself and simply send gratitude to an outer god. Worshiping your ancestral spirits with gratitude is the fasted way to become one with god. Your strongest influence comes from your direct ancestral line. And ascending that stream is the only way to reach the state of god.

   The oldest spiritual essence used in the very ancient times is “gratitude” and “yorishiro – 寄り代”(a place for the spirits to stop by to repose for while).The path that I am introducing here includes these essences. “Yorishiro” is a hidden technique that is the basic secret source in ancient Shinto (Ko-Shinto).

    Ancestral worship using tanzaku as a “yorishiro” will actually reach your ancestral spirits. It has a very strong practical power. It is most powerful because you are reaching the spirits who has the strongest fate with you. The occultic rituals created in the past few hundred years are very immature and in no comparison.

    If you feel offended or feel fearful to this simple act of ancestral worship with gratitude, please don’t do it at all.

    For those who have a strong belief of other ideas or are deeply influenced by the World of Ghosts, will not agree to what I am saying. If you could simply send gratitude to all the daily matters that occur in life, that would be good enough.

    Most people will not feel anything and are able to continue with a warm heart. However, in the process, some of you might feel uncomfortableness. That is due to the ancestors’ or your spiritual dust that you are carrying. If you continue with compassion to your ancestors, it will eventually fade away. This process is necessary to prepare yourself to be “baptised” by the spiritual radiation from the sun.

    The spiritual radiation from the sun is getting stronger. From now on, human will be divided into two ways. Those who become younger at heart and those who become mentally disordered. Financial wealth has nothing to do with it.

From now on, I would like to reload the articles from the past in my choice unless the author writes something significantly important.

Hi, Thank you very much for translating IseHakusanDou. I'm one of the Japanese readers of it, and a man who want to become the same profession as you!

I read this article with high respect and interest. And can I ask you a few questions if you have time?

Is this a kind of compilation of some original articles by you? And I noticed that the word "reside" in this sentence [“yorishiro – 寄り代”(a place for the spirits to reside)] might possibly be better to change "drop by" or "stop by" because Mr.IseHakusanDou says ancestors' spirits do not stay at yorishiro for a long period but just 1 hour or so after we offer them 3 stocks of incense. I'm not sure if this thought is proper or not, but I would appreciate it if you give me a reply. Thank you for reading!
