With the most recent TV models, all you need to do is to plug into the antenna, and type in your zip code. And the TV will automatically set you up to the channels in your district. It has become so easy and simple. In the old days, we had to start from the zzzzzz sound with all the lines showing on the TV screen and had to make adjustments. We needed the electrician to come and do it for us. Now we can do it all on our own.
The electro-magnetic waves exist in the air and it has to resonate with your TV at home in order to make it work. The same thing can be said about the spirits existing in the air. The problem is what kind of spirits are you resonating with? What sort of energy are you putting out? And as you know, like attracts like energy. The divine godly energy that creates lives in this world is also around us alive and well. Their electro-magnetic waves are very simple. Even the ultimate source, the Root God is saying,“Thank you for letting us live.” The energy that is emanating from the root is also a thanking kind of energy. It's not saying,“I will let you live”or“you must live.” It is just saying,“thank you” as if it's saying consciously towards a particular subject or an object. The root source is simply pouring out the energy of arigatō (gratitude) all the time and continues to give birth to all beings. The true god is not looking to receive thanks but is in gratitude at all times.
The energy of gratitude will give birth to like energy. We should try to do the same. When you are going to start something new say, “thank you for letting me challenge this.” When you are building a house say, “thank you for letting me build a house here on this land.” When you are starting a new job say, “thank you for letting me have this job.” Start everything by saying, “ikashite-itadaite arigato-gozaimasu, thank you for letting us live,” and it will energize like energy into your life and all things around you.
When I was writing the above words in the screen, a revelation came to me. It said, “this is the meaning of Kotohogi (言祝・寿ぎ) in Shintoism.” The essential truth of Shintoism is about blessing and celebrating everyone and everything. That is all, nothing else. When you are able to do this and ONLY this, you are giving birth to new good things, you are able to bring luck into your life. It is super simple. It is super uncomplicated. When you are able to bless everyone and everything, only say things to praise, you are actually purifying and cleansing yourself. And naturally good energy will be able to reach you. All fights and conflicts is merely a tangled string. Simply unwind it, and send a blessing. Give thanks that you are led to live. Then you can start over. Start weaving your life again.
Unlike in the 20th century when we had to adjust our TV sets, we are now able to set-up with our zip code and boom here it is! It has become so easy and simple. And now we can do it on our own. The old complicated chanting words, spending a lot of time sitting in front of an altar for rituals are no longer necessary. Those are out of date and expired. All we need to say is, “ikashite-itadaite arigato-gozaimasu, thank you for letting us live.” This is the timely chant to resonate with the highest divinity. Please for god sake, don't go to some strange "sensei", guru or a psychic and pay a lot of money thinking you can save yourself or others. You are only putting filth onto yourself.
Time moves on, and we evolve. Everyday is a new day. The word Kotohogi has such a beautiful sound to it. Lets just stay simple, be in this Kotohogi (gratitude) and live through. If you can do that, I can guarantee things will unwind and rebundle again in the right way.
Thank you for letting us live
