Check Your Mind

Verifique a sua Mente

Master Ryuho Okawa

Please listen to the CDs and DVDs of my lectures, and see if you begin to sleep in less than 5 minutes.

It means something is making you unable to listen.

I also did some experiments before.

When I was working in a company, there was someone possessed by an evil spirit of a dog.

He knew pretty well about the spirit world and said he would keep a secret about me and asked me to take the spirit away.

So, I thought I should help him, so I made him listen to a tape recording of one of my spiritual message on the Truth.

When he began to hear my voice, in front of me, he began to completely fall asleep in less than 3 minutes, I think.

I was surprised to see the effectiveness of it.

Nowadays, our organization has become quite big, and I have no chance myself to be present in such kind of situations, but some people, when they read my books, can only see that something is printed, but its meaning cannot enter into their mind.

They are like in an unclear state of mind and simply cannot understand what is written, even if they try several times, or something twinkling on printed letters keeps them from reading.
It’s exactly the same situation as people who cannot listen.

He will not understand what he reads and begin to react violently.

So you can easily see his situation.

Such people often hesitate to come to our local temples.

So, when you feel that you are not able to read our books of Buddha’s Truth, to listen to our CDs and DVDs, read or hear our sutras, feel rejection towards them and want to escape from the place, want to shut your ears, or cannot sleep well at night, etc.

If you have these symptoms, you need to understand that you are in danger.

If you become unable to listen to them, you are in danger, and you can test this by yourself.

So, even if there are not so many direct lectures from me, please come to verify your state of mind.

 

Por favor, ouça os CD e o DVD das minhas palestras e veja se você começa a dormir em menos de 5 minutos.

Significa que algo está impedindo você de ouvir.

Eu também fiz alguns experimentos antes.

Quando eu estava trabalhando em uma empresa, havia alguém possuído por um espírito maligno de um cachorro.

Ele conhecia muito bem sobre o mundo espiritual e disse que manteria segredo a respeito de mim e me pediu para afastar o mal espírito.

Então, achei que deveria ajudá-lo, então fiz com que ele ouvisse uma gravação de uma de minhas mensagens espirituais sobre a Verdade.

Quando ele começou a ouvir minha voz, na minha frente, ele começou a adormecer completamente em menos de 3 minutos, eu acho.

Fiquei surpreso ao ver a eficácia disso.

Hoje em dia, a nossa organização se tornou bastante grande, e eu mesmo não tenho mais chance de presenciar tais situações, mas algumas pessoas, quando lêem meus livros, só conseguem ver que algo está impresso, mas o significado não consegue entrar dentro de sua mente.

Eles ficam num estado de espírito confuso e simplesmente não conseguem entender o que está escrito, mesmo que tentem várias vezes, ou surge algo piscando sobre aas letras impressas que os impede de ler.

É exatamente a mesma situação das pessoas que não conseguem ouvir.

Ele não entenderá o que lê e começa a reagir com violência.

Então você pode ver facilmente a situação dele.

Essas pessoas muitas vezes hesitam em visitar nossos templos locais.

Então, quando você sente que não é capaz de ler nossos livros da Verdade de Buda, de ouvir nossos CDs e DVDs, ler ou ouvir nossos sutras, sente rejeição a eles e quer fugir do lugar, tem vontade de tapar os ouvidos, ou não consegue dormir bem à noite, etc.

Se você tiver esses sintomas, precisa compreender que está em perigo.

Se você se tornar incapaz de ouvi-los, está em perigo e poderá testar isso por si mesmo.

Portanto, mesmo que não haja tantas palestras diretas minhas, por favor, venha (numa delas) para verificar o seu estado de espírito.
