Do you sometimes wonder if God approves of what we are doing or thinking? Suppose we can find out God’s approval or disapproval. In the Tip of the Writing Brush is the verse:
In distinguishing between Kara (evil mind) and those of Nihon (pure mind),
fire (body) and water (mind) will be brought in to make the distinction 2-47
This terse verse has a profound meaning. If this is true, one can literally communicate with God. God uses the body in distinguishing how we are using our minds. If our thoughts and actions are adverse, illness is place upon our bodies. If our thoughts and actions are exemplary, health is placed on our bodies. This is God’s guidance for us to ponder over these inflictions, and eliminate greed, arrogance, and self love from our minds.
But is this happening today, or is this the future to come? We have a special prayer asking God to distinguish our minds so that the joyous world can occur one day sooner. With the sincerity of our prayers, hopefully God can begin to help us sweep greed, arrogance, from the minds of all mankind.
“Evil sweeping, save us please, Universal Saving God”
