Keeping in Mind (Okunen 憶念) [5]

Keeping in mind means that

You recall the One with love.

That you love the One far beyond your “I.”

Did you know this?

That your thoughts directed at the One

Are the thoughts directed at your own world.

That your thoughts directed at the One

Constitute nothing else than your own personality.

Let us imagine that,

You think of the One

As a frightening existence who gives punishment.

You will probably

Think of the world

As a frightening place full of calamities.

Let us imagine that

You think of the One

As a powerless existence.

You will probably

Think of yourself

As someone powerless in front of the world.

Let us imagine that

You think of the One

As an existence who provides you with blessings.

You will probably

Think of the world

As a place that provides you with blessings.

You feel great love for the One.

At this time you will be able to feel

The great love from the One.

At this time you will also be feeling

Great love for the world.

You keep in mind the One with all the love of your heart

And you feel great love for the world.

Then the world responds to it

And the world becomes for you

A place of spiritual blessing.

You will feel that the world

Is a place filled with the great love of the One.

When you melt into the great love of the One

The great love of the One fills you.

And you share the great love with the others.

At this point,

The absolute boundless great love

Will increasingly overflow

From within your chest.

And you will be filled

By the great love of the One

Deep and crystal clear in every respect.

Then the life of the One

Charged with a fierce power similar to a storm

Will regenerate your body and mind.

This newly born

True person of no rank is you.

Prayer (Kigan 祈願) [4]

When a wish deepens it becomes prayer,

When prayer further deepens it becomes conviction

And when conviction deepens it becomes gratitude.

Or, it may be something nobody notices.

Actually, at each and every moment while you are living you are praying.

You are born from the prayer of the One, from the life of the One.

This is why your life at every moment is pure prayer.

And at this very moment too,

Unknowingly you are coexisting with prayer

Let us try to dig up layers in your unconscious,

A book emerges, consisting of tens of thousands of fascicles covered by prayers.

Actually you are living

Turning over each of these pages one by one.

After all, which page are you turning over while you are living?

Nobody knows it better than yourself.

Right now how are you spending this moment

And which page of prayer are you turning over

This is left to your free will.

Even at the page praying for jealousy, at the page praying for self-punishment,

Or even at the page with a prayer based on anger

Whatever, the turning over of pages is free.

On the other hand,

Praying for the person in front of us saying “please cure her”

Praying for a dear person living afar saying “please bring her happiness”

Praying for a friend saying “please give him good health”

Or praying for the world to become richer

All these choices constitute your freedom.

And whatever the negative character of the page of prayer you turn over,

Whatever karmic debt you create because of this,

The One is always here prepared to carry the debt you have created.

This is because the One

Has generated and raised you

On the basis of prayer.

And because the One

Waits forever, forever.

He keeps waiting forever

While praying with utmost sincerity

For your healing and your happiness

For your health and richness

And for your spiritual progress.

You are the only child of the One.

Therefore the whole universe

Is revolving with you alone at the center.

Standing on the Setsu heart of the One (Shutai sesshin 主体切心) [3]

(1)

Everyone

Lives with some kind of pain in the heart.

Where in the world could we find a person without Setsu heart?

Such person is nowhere to be found.

If you look away from the pain in your heart,

You will turn into one of these adults entangled in the world

Who put on a face as if they knew everything.

If you look away from the pain in your heart,

You will loose your child’s heart

Closing the door to heaven.

It is because

Your intention (Ki) to understand the suffering of others

Will fade away.

You may even want to use your position

To stand on the top of other people.

Or you may even be willing to harm others’ heart.

This could become the type of emotion (***instead of “heart,” to avoid repetition)

That you discharge into the world.

When shutting one’s eyes to the pain in the heart

One looses the most essential quality as a human being (*** “quality” added)

Which is the ability to empathize with the existence of others.

(2)

For instance let us suppose that

You exclusively turn your attention to the pain of other persons

And that you don’t notice the pain in your own heart.

At a certain point the other party will start using his/her suffering as a shield,

Thinking that receiving your attention

Is her own right.

And he/she will even come to think that you have an obligation

To be at his/her service.

When you realize it after a while

You have become enslaved to that person’s ego.

(3)

In everything that exists there is a Setsu heart.

Needless to say that the One

Also has a Setsu heart.

This Setsu heart

Is a heart that loves you

To the point of bearing the whole brunt of your pain. (***check with the author for the

addition of “the whole brunt”)

This Setsu heart

Is the heart of the One

Willing to offer you everything to a heartbreaking extent. (***check with the author for the

addition of “everything”)

If you stand on the Setsu heart of the One

This heart is sublime.

Preserving such sublimity

Leaves no room for others

To let their egos enslave you.

Not a single space where any kind of ego could penetrate.

If you stand on the Setsu heart of the One

Other people will also awaken to the Setsu heart of the One

It involves such a possibility.

The Setsu heart of the One

Is transparent like the blue sky and elevated like starry heavens

Additionally,

It is as immovable as a huge mountain.
