How does God Guide Us?

How does God communicate with us?  In the sacred books, it is said that God directly talked to the prophets like Moses, Elijah, Jacob, Jesus, and Oyasama. But how does God communicate to us now? Do we only have the written words of our sacred books to decipher and guide us?  In the Tip of the Writing Brush are written:

From tomorrow, I shall begin to request anything of you.

You must follow the words of God. 4-41

Day by day, disorders will come to your bodies. Ponder it.

God is informing you of your mistaken mind. 4-42

This cleansing will be a difficult matter,

but I say there is nothing to be called illness. 4-09

Whatever pains, sufferings, tumors,

fever, or looseness of bowel are also from dusts (paths of mistaken mind). 4-110

In summary, God may be guiding our lives by these disorders that may be inflicted on our bodies. When we reflect on these disorders, and remove greed, arrogance, and self-love from our minds, our hearts will become pure, and the illness will be returned back to God.
