vol.4 Fifth Element - フィフス・エレメント。

今まで住んできた家の近くには、たいてい徒歩圏内に神社があったこともあり、何か物事を始める時や思うことがあると、参拝するのを習慣にしてきました。神社は昔から落ち着く場所で、エネルギーをくれるスポット。世の中の喧騒から離れた空間は、改めて自分を取り戻せるような安心感を与えてくれます。これまで様々な神社へ行っていますが、特に印象に残っているのは、京都の貴船神社。もともと、“気生根”と書いて“きふね”と呼ばれ、万物の氣の根源地と言われています。なぜか夏に思い立って行くことが多い神社です。


貴船神社への道のりは、京都駅から1時間ほど。北へまっすぐ、比叡山を目指して、電車を乗り継いで向かいます。貴船口駅を降りると、夏なのにとても肌寒く、それまでと違って空気感が重い。時間が止まったかのように、変わらず存在する森林や絶え間なく流れる川の荘厳さに圧倒されます。今からおよそ1300年前に建立された貴船神社は、本宮、中宮、奥宮からなる神社。駅から奥宮まで、全長約3kmの参道を徒歩で向かいます。本宮、中宮と順番に参ったあと、目的の奥宮へ。奥宮だけは別格で、この神社の中でも特に“氣”の力を強く感じる場所。参拝に優劣をつけるものではないですが、自分にとってこの場所は相性がいいようで、体の内側から生まれ変わったようなエネルギーがもらえる、指折りのスペシャルパワースポットです。


先日、氣について調べてみたら、人・モノ・場所の関係にもそれぞれ相性があると、五行の教えに書いてありました。思い返えせば、これまで出会っている人。モノ。場所など、上手く説明できないですが、すべてのタイミングやバランスが重なって、助けられたことがたくさんありました。無意識のうちに、目に見えない縁を受け取って、良い氣の循環があるのかもしれません。普段、どうしても目の前のことばかり意識し、頭だけで考えがちなので、もっと五感を研ぎ澄ませて、直感的な感性を保つことで、より生活が豊かになるのではないか? そんなことを思いながら、自然を大事にしたり、身のまわりのモノを長く大切にして、日頃の“縁”を素直にキャッチできるよう、ていねいな暮らしを心かけるようにしています。ちなみに、五行的には、自分と夏の相性はいいみたいです。今年も、また夏の貴船に行きたくなってきました。

Since there were shrines that were usually within walking distance near the houses I used to live in, I made it a habit to visit when there was something to think about when I started something. The shrine has been a place of calm for a long time and is a spot that gives energy. The space away from the hustle and bustle of the world gives you the peace of mind that you can regain yourself. I've been to various shrines so far, but the one that impressed me was Kifune Shrine in Kyoto. Originally, it was called "Kiki root" and called "Kifune", and it is said to be the origin of Ki of all things. It is a shrine that is often visited in summer for some reason. The journey to Kifune Shrine is about an hour from Kyoto Station. Head north and head towards Mount Hiei, changing trains. When I got off Kifuneguchi station, it was very chilly even in summer, and the feeling of air was heavy unlike before. As if time has stopped, you will be overwhelmed by the majesty of the ever-present forests and the ever-changing river. Kibune Shrine, which was built about 1300 years ago, is a shrine consisting of the main shrine, the Nakanomiya, and the Oku shrine. From the station to Okumiya, walk the 3km long approach. After visiting Hongu and Nakanomiya in order, head to Okumiya. Only Okumiya is a special place, and the place where you can feel the power of "Ki" is especially strong in this shrine. Although it is not a matter of worshiping, it seems to me that this place is compatible with me, and it is a special power spot that is one of the best power spots where you can receive energy like being reborn from inside your body. The other day, when I looked up at Ki, it was written in the teachings of the five banks that the relationships between people, things, and places are compatible. Looking back, the person I have met so far. mono. I can't explain the location well, but I was able to help a lot because of the timing and balance of everything. There may be a good cycle of Ki, unknowingly receiving an invisible edge. Usually, I tend to be conscious of what is in front of me and think only with my head, so I think that by sharpening the five senses and maintaining an intuitive sensibility, it is possible to enrich our lives. Thinking about such things, I value nature and cherish the things around me for a long time, and I try to live a polite life so that I can catch everyday “relationship” obediently. By the way, from the five perspectives, it seems that the compatibility between myself and summer is good. I want to go to Kifune again this summer.
