Law of Gravity
Why are we talking about the law of gravity on this blog? In this world, there are some rules that are absolute. When you throw something up, it comes down due to gravity. It is the same with causality (innen). What you plant now, you reap in the future. This is also absolute. For example, good deeds will result in a joyous future, while bad deeds will result in future sufferings
There are many references in Tenrikyo literature where God is helpless to relieve the sufferings caused by our actions. But by God’s special prayer, God helps us sweep evils (greed, arrogance, and self love) from our minds. This results in positive behaviors which produces a joyous future (causality).
In summary what can we do?
Accept the consequences of your past actions in a positive way, while planting good seeds that will produce joy in the future.
