Motoake (Amoto) Origin of Universe
Motoake (Moto-ake; moto, origin; ake, opening) literally means “opening of origin”, i.e., creation of Universe. Amoto (A-moto; A, cosmos, Universe; moto, origin) is a synonym, and it means creation of Universe.
The profound and beautiful Motoake chart was designed by Toyoke-sama to teach how the universe is created by the Original Presence, Amemiwoya. The charts were especially created by S. Sakata for this site. We colored the central circle pink to show it clearly. In the circle are three symbols. The upper spiral which opens counter-clockwise is the A symbol of Ame, Cosmos. The other spiral which opens clock-wise is the Wa symbol of Wa, Earth. In the very center, the ho-tai U symbolizes the movement of creation caused by Amemiwoya. This is most important. The central circle represents the place of Amemiwoya.
Creation was brought about by movement. This is the beginning and the origin of Universe. It divided into Earth and Cosmos, the rest of Universe. The Wosite letters A, U, Wa describe this process. They are in the center of the figure, and they represent the Center of Universe and Amemiwoya. Here is an enlargement of the three central ideograms.
Enshrined in the central circle with Amemiwoya is Minakanushi, first of mankind on earth, and first of the top leaders of Japan, the Kunitokotachi. This place is called Amoto. It is symbolized by the North Star.
The eight ideograms in the innermost ring are the names of the eight Akuta-kami: To, Ho Ka, Mi, Ye, Hi, Ta, Me. These eight govern the corresponding eight phonemes. The Akuta have special important functions having to do with space and time.
Next, we turn our attention to the second Motoake chart with two colors.
There are eight kami in the second ring; they are called Anami-kami. (The ring is colored pink.) Anami-kami are in charge of the phonemes A, I, Hu, He, Mo, Wo, Su, Si (the phonemes in the pink ring). Anami-kami are Kami that bring down cosmic vibrations to form the human body. They control the mime-katati.
How is this done? In response to the phonemes, thirty-two Misohu-kami produce human mime-katachi (human appearance and constitution of the body). Misohu-kami are thirty-two reverberations of voice. They are shown colored yellow in the outer two rings of the chart.
Because there are eight kami in each of the first two rings and sixteen in each of the next two rings, there are a total of forty-eight kami represented by the forty-eight ideograms for the phonemes of Wosite.
Hutomani and Motoake
The Motoake chart shown above symbolizes the manifestation process. It was designed by the sage Toyoke-sama to help people understand the process of Universe. It comes from the Hutomani document written in Wosite by Amateru Amakami. As we stated in Post #1, the original name given by its author was Moto ra tutaye no humi. This means a humi for solving a problem by applying the principles of Amenaru-miti, the Way or Law of the Cosmos, as taught by the Motoake chart.
Meaning of Hutomani
What does the word Hutomani mean? Let us break it down into its parts.
Hu is the appearance of a new strong movement, an inspiration from Ame, Cosmos/Universe.
To is the gathering of the inspirational movement and stabilizing and solidifying it. It also refers to the teaching of To no Wosite from ancestor To-no-Kunisatsuchi as taught by Toyoke-sama.
Ma means receiving new energy, gathering the energy, and conveying it down to earth.
Ni is harmonizing the energy and manifesting that energy.
So, Hutomani means:
A new strong movement of inspiration appears from Universe. The movement is gathered, stabilized, solidified according to the teaching of To no Wosite. The new energy of movement is received, gathered, and conveyed down to earth. This energy is harmonized and manifested on earth.
We will provide you, dear Reader, further explanations of Hutomani and the Motoake.
