Are you sad and depressed at times? Do you want to be happy and spirited? God tells how one can become spirited now; and also tells us how to obtain a joyous future.
God tells us to remove greed, arrogance, miserliness, and self love from the mind. These are the evils or dusts that prevent one from becoming happy and spirited. But it is not easy removing these evils from our minds.
God through his guidance gives us the opportunity to remove evil thoughts from our minds. By calming our minds and not acting on our evil thoughts when faced with adversities and temptations, we can gradually prevents these thoughts from originating from our minds. By this process, step by step our minds become pure of these evil thoughts and we become spirited.
God descended from Heaven to save all mankind and has given us the Book of Prophecy (Fudesaki), which contains the following instructions to save all mankind.
The removal of greed, arrogance, miserliness, covetousness, and self-love from our minds will result in joy. The accumulation of these evils or dusts will result in future sufferings for the individual. Our thoughts and actions of today determine what happens to us in the future. We control our own future!
God wants us to share this truth with others; he tells us that true joy is shared joy. We cannot experience true joy ourselves while others suffer. For this reason, God has given us a special prayer that will allow us to share God’s truths with others.
We believe in the law of causality and reincarnation. Good thoughts and actions result in joy. Evil (greed, arrogance, and self love) thoughts and actions result in suffering and inconveniences in the future. Cause and effect have no time limitations. The effects of our actions may not develop until the next life.
With the acceptance of our special prayer (Joyous Service), God will begin to shorten the time lapse between the cause and effect, making the relationship easier to understand. That illness or suffering is God informing you of evil (greed, arrogance, and self-love) in your mind today. God gives you a glimpse of the future by this guidance. By pondering the illness and responding positively (acknowledging the evil in the mind, and not acting on them), the illness subsides; but more importantly the evil originating in your mind decreases. By this process, one becomes spirited, and the future becomes more joyous.
OUR PATH: (to share our religion)
To spread God’s truth to others.
To continue to eliminate greed, arrogance, and self-love from our own minds; thus making our special prayer receptive to God.
To pray daily with our special prayer (Joyous Service), asking God to help sweep evil (greed, arrogance, and self love) from the world’s mind.
To heal the people whose minds have been revealed when God guides them to us; and teach them about causality and true sincerity. True sincerity is a mind that ponders over suffering and obstacles, and accepts these inconveniences in a joyous manner. This will by the principle of causality bring forth joy in the future.
