Tenrikyo /It is God

In this world, sometimes no matter how convinced we are right, we cannot change those who do not believe like we do. Up is down, and left is right to them. It is like politics, where ethics is gone; people will vote for their party candidate even if he or she is corrupt. In religion, sometimes common sense goes out the window, when faith overrides reasoning. What do we do?

It is said that the world is a mirror. What happens in our lives is a reflection of our minds. God shows us what we have done in the past. God is showing us our mindset.  God tells us not to hate the messenger that brings upon the inconveniences to us; God tells us to have understanding and compassion for these fallen souls. God tells us to ponder and reflect on what has occurred. By this process, we can purify our minds of arrogance, greed, and selfishness. We believe that change comes from within, and then spreads to other people, like these fallen souls.

It is this change from anger to compassion in the face of hostility or inconvenience that God accepts as true sincerity.   It is true sincerity that makes the special prayer (Joyous Service) to save the world effective. It is God that eventually saves all mankind when our sincere prayers are accepted.
