The Power of Money

There are many people who worship money or power in our society. But money or power cannot guarantee a happy life. Money can’t help you when you become sick. Money can’t prevent sufferings. Money or power cannot guarantee you a happy life. What is it that we need to know to have a joyous life? In the Osashizu is the following:

You might not understand easily if I speak of causality. Listen and understand the truth well. If things happen the way you wish, that is because of causality. If things do not happen the way you wish, that is also because of causality. If you pass through life with no awareness of causality, with no awareness of causality at all, then there is no knowing what sort of causality will manifest itself. However hard you try to cause something to happen, it might not happen, such is causality. Were it possible for the power of money to make anything happen, it would be as though the one truth did not exist. Causality means that the power of money cannot cause things to happen.August 26, 1890

In summary power and money do not guarantee us our happiness. It is the awareness of causality that will help us acquire a joyous life in the future. When we remove evil (greed, arrogance, and self love) from our minds and help others, we guarantee ourselves of a joyous future. This is causality. This is God’s guarantee.
