Just looking at the title of the president of National Chauvinistic Husbands Society, I thought that his wife must know his weakness. I believe that I am not the only one who thinks this way. I feel that the last phrase “There is no cutest creature in this world other than a wife only when she is in a good humor” hits the nail on the head.
Reading this article, I imagine that his wife is probably not a dog-type but a cat-type person. I was surprised to learn that as many as 7,500 men sign up as members, which the society is proud of. It might be fair to say that brave men get together in order to get a key to an eternal mystery.
“Only people who have overcome the challenge can get eternal love.” This is true. I highly evaluate these 7,500 men all over Japan at least in that they recognize the challenge is not in the society but in the home. The reality is that most soft men utilize the company as the second mother, or so to speak a shelter.
I hear that there are a great number of men who develop a phobia of going home. Men who escape from the front line of the fight cannot have matured as men.
Let’s suppose that you dislike a centipede. Try to catch a centipede and closely observe it for a while. The longer you observe it, the less creepy and less scaring you will feel it. Instead, you will get to admire its elaborate form and beauty like an artwork. It is the same with a spider or cockroach.
Long time ago, I watched a TV program. A female researcher of cancer got to love cancer cells one day after she kept on closely watching them. They say that cancer cells cannot live under the presence of oxygen. The female researcher said: “I want to protect them.”
This is an example of “key to an eternal mystery.” Just stare at the object without denying or admitting it, namely, just by getting rid of all emotions.” You can get to love the object you stare at, even cancer cells. What is most important is “just gaze at it.” Most couples make a mistake gazing at the other side with expectations. This leads to dissatisfaction or anger with the other side.
“Those who have overcome the challenge” means those who succeed in gazing at the other side by getting rid of any desires in their heart. Try to apply this technique of “just gazing” not only to your husband or children but to yourself. Enlightenment is near at hand.

Shanti-phula has indicated some parts of the following text in black boldface type or in red letters.
English translation of a Japanese article: PRESIDENT ON LINE – April 19, 2010 –
Must-read for husbands, who can solve daily quarrels at home overnight
You have happened to be caught in this page. How lucky you are! I, Shuichi Amano, am the president of National Chauvinistic Husbands Society with 7,500 members.
Why does a couple, who used to be in much love with each other, cut each other’s throats and curse and swear? The key to solve this eternal mystery is to get to understand the two facts. One fact is that marriage is a prank played by God who tries to bring together a man and a woman who never get along and only a couple who have overcome the challenge can get eternal love.
The other fact is that the God is exactly your wife. Nobody except God can continue to give you a new form of challenge every day.
There is no cutest creature in this world other than a wife only when she is in a good humor.
