The Purpose of life/addition to

There is a  hexagonal stone pillar, when completed, the heavens will open and golden nectar will flow, overflowing the special vessel placed on top of the structure. When this occurs, mankind will be able to live as long as he or she wishes without illness or disorders. This is promised by God in the Tip of the Writing Brush, but with a caveat. Mankind must purify his or her mind of greed, arrogance and self love.

This pillar represents the creation of human beings

As proof of My beginning of human beings,

I shall put the Pillar (Kanrodai) into place. 17-9

But the structure represents not just proof that God created  human beings, but it represent something more important. It represents God’s purpose for the creation of human beings.

In the verses of the Tip of the Writing Brush, God  emphasizes the origin becoming (naru) of mankind. This is the conditions before the creation of mankind, especially the purity of the instruments that were used to create mankind; and the thoughts of God before the creation.

The construction of the Pillar represents God’s effort to save the world. It shows people not only where human beings were initially created, but more important, the reason why humans were created. When the world becomes aware that mankind was created to live a joyous life, it will be easier for people to eliminate greed, arrogance, and self love. This knowledge of the origin  will facilitate our prayers to sweep evil from our minds.

This future pillar becomes not only a physical focal point of our prayers, but also holds the answer to the purpose of life.

The reason God began human beings     

was the desire to see you lead a joyous life.  14-25

Only when we believe this from our innermost heart, can we cleanse our minds. It is with this mind that we pray to God to sweep the evils (greed, arrogance, and self love) from the minds of all mankind. As the minds of the world mature, the construction of the pillar will also become closer to construction. When the minds of the world are purified, the pillar will be completed, and peace will finally settle on the earth.
