Tenrikyo - The Reason of Heaven


This universe is the body of God.

Ponder this in all matters.

XIV: 41- 44

about all matters day after day,

This is what it is all about isn't it. This is why we want to change.

Hereafter, it is the Parent who will direct.

Nothing said against Me shall I ever accept.

This refers to single-heartedness with the Parent as the foundation of our thinking in all matters. The gift of heaven is given to mind that follows the directions of the Parent. In the mind that is turned away from the Parent the fruits of the limitations of causality are accumulated.
