anonymous asked:

I'm very close to kami, but I feel like I am a burden, so I try not to rely on them. Could you offer any assurance or guidance? Thank you <3

Hmmm..

I also feel the same at times… I can understand.

But basically it is taught, especially in Konkokyo, “Kami-sama exists to receive requests - people are people because of Kami, but also Kami is Kami because of people. “ 

 In the same manner, it’s trying to say that because people can rely on and pray to the kami, that creates the act of worship and faith. Without that, there are only spirits and physical beings, separated by two different worlds. 

I like this quote from FFXV actually,  “It is in receiving mercy that men offer praise, and in shedding grace that the gods illicit worship.”  

it’s actually a very Shinto-thinking quote. Most kami are worshiped for their good or benevolent qualities to people. Even if they harm others (such as the god of smallpox, Housougami, they are still worshipped, but in the sense to placate them and bring out their good qualities to receive their favour or healing. 

Therefore, in Shinto, to request or relieve your burdens onto the kami, is almost the source/origin of worship to the kami. The kami have always been seen as in a sense spirits  that are beyond us - spirits that evoke reverence and awe - in a beautiful or scary way - something beyond our own selves. When people pass away, they become an energy beyond their own selves - a kami as well. Everything is divine, but a kami is a kind of existence that is all-encompassing, physical, but also beyond and spiritual. Invoking awe for better or worse.

Kami gain more “power” in the sense of stronger energy toward human beings when they are communicated to, when they are prayed to, when they are relied upon. 

This is in the sense if you think of kami as a profession. As a professional, you want people to rely on you, to constantly ask you for work - whether its art commissions, doing repairs, editor work, writing work - when you do so and can fulfill this work well, people admire you and respect you. You cannot force others to accept work from you. 

The same is for spirits who are kami - that is why they want to be relied upon. You have to tell them and give them consent to help you - then they have more power to do so, and they are happy to help you with their powers, their profession.  It’s a mutual benefit.

So try to keep in mind when you rely on the kami, you are helping them, and they are happy to help you. It’s not a burden to them. They don’t think, “Oh, it’s them again..”, especially to kami close to humanity, aka. kami who have shrines and are well-known, they always want to try and help sincere practitioners and those who pray to them with a sincere heart. 



have some more anime boys in your life

Manga/Manhwa Worth Reading (Ongoing)

I’ll upload a list every month! Stay tuned.

1. Killing Stalking (depictions of strong violence and harassment, warning). The only reason I’m reading this is to find out how the relationship between the main characters will turn out to be.

2. Kamisama Hajimemashita (the most important arc of the manga just finished)

3. Tokyo Ghoul :re (the clowns are here)

4. Saezuru Tori Wa Habatakanai (One of my favorite yaoi manga. Warning, not everyone’s cup of tea, even though it’s a masterpiece)

5. Shingeki no Kyojin

6. Moritat (Law and Jesse omg)

7. Never Understand/ Out of control (last chapter came out this morning. An interesting read)

8. Kuroshitsuji (another arc finished, right?)

9. Horimiya (slow updates, but worth it)

10. A Man Like You (oh, the angst)
