Those who have a mixture of holy and demonic blood are often tested by God. There is no right and wrong in this world, and the universe survives through the forces of yin and yang balancing each other. However, human beings fight each other with weapons in their hands for the sake of their own righteousness and faith. There is no room for logic; there is only culture and tradition that has continued for centuries. If there are opposing forces and actions within us, and we continue to struggle with so-called bi-polar reactions, it is a challenge from God that we must overcome. When opposites can merge and harmonize, the anguish within us will disappear and there will be no more conflict in the world.

聖と魔の混合した血を持つ存在には、神からの試練が多く齎されます。この世界に善悪も正邪もなく、陰と陽の力がお互いに均衡を保ち合うことで宇宙は存続しています。しかし人間は己の正義や信仰のために、武器を手に取り争い合います。誠に哀しいことながら、それは仕方のないことであり、そこに理屈が介入する余地はなく、在るのはただ何世紀も続く文化と伝統なのです。もし己の中に相反する力と作用があり、いわゆる両極性反応に葛藤し続けるならば、それは克服すべき神からの課題に他なりません。正反対の性質を持つもの同士が融合し調和し得れば、己の中の苦悩も消え、世界からも争いは無くなるでしょう。
