We all have sinned.

We hear of tragedies everyday, where innocent people are hurt or killed for no apparent reason. For some they may wonder if God exists, or if God cares. The religious would say that we should not question God’s will, and the victims will be blessed in the after life. But for many, will this explanation be enough to console their grief?

It is said that God is concerned about our soul, and that physical material, including our bodies is secondary. To save the soul, or to have us gain salvation is the ultimate goal of God. Our material possession, including our bodies is only borrowed from God, while our souls (hearts) are ours. It is said that a soul lives forever existing in heaven or earth, or both depending on what religion one follows. For God, the physical demise of a body, may not appear as tragic as it is to us. To save the soul is the primary concern.

Let’s get to what we do not want to hear. We all suffer because we all have sinned. If we believe in the Bible, the taste of the forbidden fruit initiated God’s wrath. If we believe in causality, we cause our own sufferings as a result of greed, arrogance, and self-love in our minds. We reap what we sow. The following is from the Osashizu (Information):

God does not discriminate, does not play favorites. Listen carefully and understand. The people who understand me, and those that do not are regulated by the truth of causality. I have told you that human bodies are things lent, things borrowed. I have all sorts of things reflected in the world. Every thought is reflected back to the world. The world is a mirror. With each of you, everything is reflected on the body according to your own state of mind. As for what becomes of things from you previous lives, I also have told you that I have everything reflected on your body. February 4, 1889.

The original causality of the Origin was that God created all mankind to live the joyous life. If we believe this, we may be comforted that our sufferings of our loved ones are only temporary. The world is a mirror of our minds. If we do not like what we see, we must purify our minds. When all mankind is purified, we all will live joyously with everyone helping each other.
