Tenrikyo - The Reason of Heaven


This universe is the body of God.

Ponder this in all matters.

XIII: 58 - 61

Everything will be different from what it has been until now.

From now on it will be as God intends. 

The newly created world of free and unlimited joyous life does not look like this. In that new world everything will be different. Perhaps we are being a bit slow in realizing that. 

Perhaps no one knows the intention of Moonsun

in descending from Heaven.

Honestly, this is the problem isn't it. We find it very difficult to clear away our self-centered thinking so that Moonsun's intention can be clearly known and understood. 

First, to help those who grow crops,

I desired to teach you on the matter of fertilizer.

Please ponder this. The method is to teach to the priorites of the children. 

Do not wonder why the fertilizer is effective.

If only God accepts your mind...

Though the method of teaching addresses the worldly common priorities of the children, the actual  intention is not worldly common. The actual intention concerns the human mind, its purification and the single-hearted salvation that is given as a return for its completion.
