Be the Winner

One of my reader sent me the words said by Shikō Munakata (Born 1903. Internationally recognized woodblock printmaker):  I am Aomori  (Aomori Prefecture is his home ground)

I have my home town and I have me thats allits pretty simple.  I feel that wherever I go, I am here and I am there, everywhere. My body brings Aomori and I feel its buried inside me. So there are no borders between Aomori and me. That's how I feel. Maybe Aomori is not happy that I said so, but I AM AOMORI. Im not a place, not a hometown. So I must be an Aomori bogyman! Ahahaha.

My insight:
He is a man in disguise. He is actually a Spirit of the Great Nature of Aomori. He just came to play and have fun in this world.

In order for a man to be born, a merge must occur between a traveling soul and the Ubusuna-kami (a god spirit of the birthplace). We have all gone through this process to be born in this world.

From his words, I understand that he feels the importance of the god of his birthplace, Ubusuna-kami. In his case, his ego is already much smaller than average people. His consciousness is in motion together with a land.

Even today, most people are still suffering from problems in a small realm called self.  

The truth is that we are all spirits of the land, the spirits of Japan and moreover we are part of Earth and part of the whole Universe.

However, we still seem to suffer through reality.

Even if I told you that You Are the Universe, what is going on in your reality wouldnt change and you still cant let go of your suffering state of mind.
So how about thinking the other way around. Could you imagine that the Great Spirit (you) has entered your small world by his own choice? And just through this limited time, he has come to experience the disability or the uncomfortableness. It was your own choice whether you like it or not. So you dont have to believe that you are one with the Universe, or go to a psychic or attend workshops and pay a lot of money to solve your problems.

If you have that kind of time and money, its so much better to go and enjoy good food, read or watch a movie. Whatever you do at your own home, you will get a good insight because you are in your personal original magnetic field. You can come to a decision through your own power. Things you feel by talking to a fee-charging psychic sensei is totally wrong. You are poisoned by the spirit behind this psychic and not being yourself. The spiritual seminars/workshops are the same. When I see the room with my psychic vision, I see the room filled with smoke (magnetic energy) that is coming from the spirit behind the presenter and the participants are all in trance.   

One of my reader sent me a photo of a seminar. The photo was taken from the very back of the seminar room. The sensei, teacher was in the front giving a lecture. In that photo, I could see a monstrous being with many fangs sticking out from his mouth. At the end, even the organizer will be eaten by this evil spirit.   

Shikō Munakata had a very hard time in his youth including poverty, ill-treated at school and having poor eye-sight. His success didnt come around until his mid-life. Even though one is in a spiritually high state, this human realm will make you experience many sufferings. To look it from the other way, it means the more suffering you choose to have the bigger soul you are.

If you are having a real hard time now, its going to be all right. Try to find joy in this limited realm while you have it.

Even in hard times, if you dont forget to be grateful and to have fun, you are a winner. You didnt loose against the choice you made before you entered this world. You have reached the peak of one mountain.

Practice to be Flexible

The problems in life could be coming from you being in many ways "stiff." Having a stiff body or having a stiff heart. They could both get you into trouble. If your heart were stiff, when someone says something unpleasant to you, you would be badly influenced by it more than necessary.

The ego that makes you want to look good is stiffening your heart. It is binding your heart. When your body is stiff, that could become the cause of all kinds of illness. It's a sign of bad circulation. When you're experiencing a sense of stiffness, your body is giving out a signal to warn you. It's saying you better do something about me.

The readers ask me questions about their illness. When his illness is cancer, I could see it as a hard lump. The image I see through my psychic vision in cancer patients is that his whole body is stiffened. The stiffness of one's heart will link to the stiffness of one's body. If you are stubborn, you should watch out. You do have a tendency of creating a tumor in your body.

In this world, one of the key factors to bring happiness into your life is to have a flexible heart and body. A flexible heart would make your physical body strong and have control of your emotions. The "flexibility" could be the answer to make your life easier.

I was very surprised when I paid a visit to Gekū of Ise Jingu for my first time to offer the Shinon-kansha(神恩感謝), the formal visit to attend a ceremony to offer gratitude to the gods. The way the priest chanted the Norito, Oharae-no-kotoba (大祓詞), was so gentle and relaxed. His state of mind was like the water in a stream. He was so calm. He totally relaxed my ceremonious attitude at once. He had no strain of trying to chant well. There is a Japanese archaic word, Kotohogu, meaning “to voice the word of rejoice or celebration.” The priest of Gekū chanting the Norito reminded me of this archaic word. He had melted my heart and body with his ability of voicing.

In Ko-Shinto (ancient-Shinto), an outbreak of an evil spirit was said to occur from being obstinate. When you start to become obstinate, you have to watch out for yourself.

Well, many things happen in one lifetime. Simply untie the knot as you walk step by step.

This photo want sent to me from a reader who recently took a picture at Izawa-no-miya shrine. It is very rare to see this kind of orb with a clear print of an ancient bronze mirror and a glow around the circle. It is a kenzoku (retainer) of Sun Goddess Amaterasu-Ohomikami. It is protection this shrine where the god reside.
