Tip of the Writing Brush 13

There are many people who believe that they are superior than others because they are wealthier, have a better occupation, have a better education, have political office, have a better religion, or feel that their race is more superior. The following verses are from our sacred book.

All of you throughout the world are brothers and sisters.

There should be no one called an outsider. 13-43

That there is no one who knows the origin.

That is the reason for God’s regret. 13-44

Those living in the high mountains and those living in

the low valleys, their souls are all the same. 13-45

Verse 13-43 states that everyone is equal as a child of God.

Verse 13-44 states that God is sad that we do not know why mankind was created.  God created mankind in order to live a joyous life.

Verse 13-45 states that the souls of the rich and poor are equal.

Verse 13-46 states that because we do not know this, we humans think that there is some sort of hierarchy in class.

In summary, most of the sufferings that are occurring in the world are caused by the belief that there is a high or low among people. If we knew the origin, or God’s intent on creating mankind, we would treat everyone like if they were our brothers and sisters.
