Black&white, light&dark contrasts… pay attention when these start to fade away

This year’s expressions in the sky look very different from last year. The weather experts are saying that this year will be a warm winter in Japan. But I think it will be different. I think there will be a mixture of very warm and very cold days. The gap between the warm days and the cold days will be very big and we will have extreme weathers with some heavy snowfall in a short amount of time. The average temperature for this winter may be higher than the average year, but we must pay attention to the day to day differences.

This kind of mixed weather will cause more expenses in the preparation. The snow tires are not cheap. However, even one day of big snowfall, without these snow tires, accidents could happen and there is no guarantee if the insurance will cover in such case.  If your insurance didn’t cover for the accident, and if it involved injuring another person, you may even have to sell your house, a real nightmare.

Know that extreme weather could really change your life upside down. In addition, these kinds of weather would affect not only the humans but the animals as well. 
For example, the bears may not able to get into hibernation and they may come out unexpectedly. If you think getting into the forest is safe during the winter, it may not be the case this winter. The kind of bears that live in the main island of Japan, could well kill a man if they are really hungry. When you are paying a visit to the shrines deep inside the mountain, make sure you carry a bell. The sound of a bell will also keep the spirits away. The bad spirits do not like the metallic ringing sounds.

In the traditional Buddhist funeral, they use a metallic sound like a gong to guide the deceased to lead to the next dimension, and to cut-off their emotional attachment toward the life they just passed. This makes sense in a spiritual way.

These past hundred years, the forests are diminishing. And one theory says the cause of this could be coming from the town lights lighting up all night and that may be the cause of their decay. During the dark hours, the leaves go into photosynthetic activity. But when there is light all day, their natural cycle is out of order and weakens the health of nature.

Having said that, we humans also need to have this variation in our daily lives. When we work we need to work fully. And then, we need to rest fully and deeply as well.  In much larger scale, when we are living in this dimension, we should enjoy “motion” and when we go into the life after-death, we enjoy the “stillness.”

In many ways, when the contrasts of light and dark or black and white start to fade away, it is life threatening to all living creatures. I had a revelation a while ago that the Days of Miroku is coming soon when the four seasons are fading away. Feel how these all tie together. And enjoy every moment by living through this time. We will live it through together.

Whats deep inside the Earth

Underwater ruins are often discovered in the Mediterranean. In Okinawa, there is a legend about an island that disappeared in one night. Also an underwater ruin made out of giant stone has been found that may have been an ancient sacred ground/ a place to hold rituals. I think that we will experience activities of the Earth such as sinking of islands and lands much more than what the scientists are now saying.

Just imagine. The surface of the Earth is a thin crust and it’s actually just on top of the mantle layer. And the mantle layer is all pulpy magma running through. In this magma, I sense a great will of the Earth. I somehow feel a very high intelligence inside this river of magma.

This flow of magma is creating the geo-magnetic energy. In my vision, I see this flow of magma in the mantle layer uniting with the magnetic-energy waves from the sun and they are breathing together creating a flow. It is like plus and minus, yin and yang or the couple god Izanagi and Izanami.

What I am trying to say here are:

* There is also a god deep inside the geologic stratum. Therefore, it is good to send our gratitude to the layers beneath the surface of Earth.

* I want you to know that success, happiness and health in this reality are given to the ones who have come to make peace with this god of the deep part of Earth. 

To begin with, how did someone decide where to build a shrine in the ancient time? This question will lead us to understand that the deep underground had a great will and intelligence. And someone must have felt certain locations that revealed its power thus come to know a shrine was needed to be build above those places. That was the god’s will.  

Thus when you visit a Shinto Shrine, don’t only be concerned about the building but most importantly:
Have the sense of gratitude to the earth beneath it.
Know that a god exists deep down in the ground and only send gratitude. (Don’t ask for any favors and wishes.)

Your thoughts will reach to the god of the very deep earth through your Innate God.  
In the Western world, people say there is a shambara, the legendary god’s kingdom exist deep underground. I feel that there are many passages that lead to that kingdom. In Europe the Alps, in Asia the Himalayas, in America and Canada the Rockies and in Japan Haku-san are the places where this passages exist.

Because of the god’s will, Haku-san (Mt.Haku) was intentionally not open to the public for a long time. Before Taicho-daishi (泰澄大師), a monk in the Nara period, opened the mountain to the public, it was a prohibited place to enter. It was controlled by god’s will not to become a place where people pay attention. I imagine that some local people did secretly enter the mountain before the time of Taicho-daishi and many never returned.   

Even today, I have heard someone who had seen a super giant tree in Haku-san. People had tried to search for this tree from the sky but have never found it. The tree seems to appear only when one has come alone and got lost in the woods. When one sees an unbelievable giant tree or an unusual flower that is a sign that one has come close to the entrance to shambara.

In Tibet, underneath the Potala Palace there seems to be a maze that leads to shambara. I think this palace was intentionally built above the maze in order to hide it.

I wish you to be aware of the possibility that the earth will sink and rise way more than one can imagine and the importance to send gratitude to the earth and the deeper layers.
