Look at how causality is working in the world, and you will see the journey taken before. January 30, 1892 Instructions (Osashizu)
Looking at the world today, we see joy and suffering. Is there a path to joy? Is there a path to suffering? Can evil thoughts and actions lead to one’s suffering; can good thoughts and actions result in joy and happiness? What prevents us from seeing this relationship? It is time.
Let me give you an analogy. If we find a seed, we do not know what fruit it will bare unless we plant it and wait. Sometime this process takes a long time. It is time that obscures this relationship between the seed and it’s fruit. Time may not be relative to God who created the earth millions of years ago; but to us it may place a barrier to what is an obvious relationship. This time may span many life times, before the seed bares the fruit. We see, yet we do not see. We see suffering and joy, yet we do not understand their origin.
