Tao Te Ching Chapter 49-8 Faith
I attain faith. (Ch.49)
A: "Master Bonbon, how can I attain my faith?"
B: "The more money you donate to our organization, the closer you get to your faith."
You may laugh at Master Bonbon, but are you sure the priest next to you is better than him?
Let's make it clear that salvation or Satori is free of charge.
You don't have to pay for your faith.
Let me put it another way.
Whether you have faith or not, your objective is to maintain the circulation of the fundamental energy Tao. Nothing else.
The moment you remember this, you attain faith.

Tao answers your question!
☞«Kamikaze Diaries: Reflections of Japanese Student Soldiers». "Kami" etymologically means "up above". The Japanese still think that there is something devine up there. The kanji / Chinese character is also pronounced "Shin". The way the divinity wants to do his business is, therefore, called "Kami nagara no michi / Shinto". Once in a while, gods up there send some divine winds to shake and save the floating world. Those students were supposed to be the divine winds incarnated, but they knew what they really were. Read their testimonies.
