True Sincerity

True sincerity is said to be the “Truth of Heaven”. What is true sincerity? It is the mind that is void of greed, arrogance, and self-love. When we eliminate arrogance, anger, hate and retribution disappear. When we are without greed, sharing and goodwill begins to appear. When we eliminate self-love, we become caring for others. In the Book of Prophecy (Ofudesaki), it is said that our minds become spirited when we purify our minds of greed, arrogance and self-love. This is the state of mind when joy pervades our lives, regardless of any circumstances that may appear in our lives. It is the state of mind, which allows us to completely lean on God to help us live a joyous life.
