When people truly understand the gods/spirits/demons/angels/etc
Hey guys. I found this special little gem while messing around online. ;) It’s one of the books I’d be sending out to everyone! So, if you wanna read it, here’s the PDF!!
Just a little reminder…there’s some parts in this book that has a little bit of bias as it was written by a small group of people within Konkokyo
So just to clear up: Kami-sama does NOT support abuse or allowing yourself to be stuck in an abusive situation. Kami wants you to break free from anything that hurts your soul, at it’s core. Kami-sama wants true happiness for you.
You should not feel that your anger, or negative emotions, or pain and suffering is unjustified or wrong to feel. Yes, feel them. Feel all your anger, sadness, suffering….just the point Kami-sama wants to make is to not let it eat you alive, or overtake you. It’s okay to feel angry, but don’t let it turn into a rage and loose sight of who you are at your heart.
You should not accept that suffering just happens. Kami-sama wants you to break free from suffering, with your strength, Kami-sama’s strength and support, (and hopefully) the help of others lifting you up too. Never stay in a situation where you suffer.
Just wanted to clear that up.
Also, Konko is a very malleable faith.
It’s best, when reading materials, to keep what you like, but don’t be afraid to criticize or scrutinize, or ask questions and think about what you don’t like.
After all, we have a Conference and many gatherings every year just to talk about the things we find odd or that doesn’t settle with us in some of the materials, and that’s encouraged!
Konkokyo materials are not to be taken with the same amount of regard or authority as the Bible or the Tripitaka.
