Don’t Forget Your Past

It is said that the human minds forgets easily. This pertains to business, social and religious events. For example in business there is a saying, “It is not what you have done in the past, but what you can do for the company now.” With this reasoning, companies release their employees without regret.  In friendship, sometime we forget all the good times in the past, and become distant from some one due to a petty disagreement.

In religion, we are so appreciative when we a saved from an illness, or personal difficulties. But as time passes, we forget about God’s blessings that were received. The following is a verse from the Osashizu:

Even if I reveal the free and unlimited workings of God, you remember it only for the time being. But when a day passes, ten days pass and thirty days pass, you forget it entirely. I have taught you, but the truth does not stand. It is not because it cannot stand. It is because you do not uphold it. Your not upholding the truth is the bases of dusts (evil). May 9, 1898

In summary, we must be cognizant of the past to go forth in the future. Remember what got you here!
