Comment on verse 1 to 16 Part 5

These verses are important in that they tell the simple, yet profoundly difficult truth for us humans to take in. The solution to all human difficulties is found in our mind. How simple is that? But it is difficult for us to really believe in it.

The very reason of our being is to lead joyous life. Everything on this earth, including our own life, are meant to realize this joyous life. Our mind is free, but we must use the freedom in the direction of realizing mutual happiness. When these truths are understood, God's free and unlimited workings are just in front of us.

If a big shouting does it, I sure would like to shout this truth to the world. But, of course it won't work that way. As we are reminded time to time, it is the daily, step by step doing that really counts.



All human bodies are things lent by God.
