Tip of the Writing Brush 11

In many religions, the occurrence of pain and illness may be associated with God’s retribution for one’s sins. But in our religion, pain and illness are associated with God’s love for his children.

Hereafter, all of you may receive

disorders of the body little by little. 11-2

Whatever disorders you may receive, do not worry,

for there is a great intention in the mind of God. 11-3

Through a disorder may come to the body,

I am making a distinction in each of your minds. 11-4

I shall distinguish those thoughts, which are sincere

from those which are self centered. 11-5

Verse 11-2 an 11-3 states that disorders or illness will be placed on the body, but not to worry because there is a purpose for the occurrence.

Verse 11-4 states that illness and disorder will be placed appropriate to how we are using our minds today (if we have greed, arrogance or self love).

Verse 11-5 states that God distinguishes our minds and shows it to us by disease, disorders or health, so we can ponder and remove these evils (greed, arrogance, and self love) from our minds.

In summary, illness and disease are not punishments from God. They are guidance from the heavens. God may be giving us a preview of our future sufferings. If we ponder over these discomforts, we may be able to sweep these evils from our minds, and create a joyous future.

“Evil (greed, arrogance, and self love) sweeping, save us please, Universal Saving God”
