As I study the Ofudesaki, I come across some interesting information that pertains to what is happening in the world. Some of this may be coincidence, but I feel it is important to share. In Chapter 6 of the Ofudesaki verse 6-91, God tells us the explanation for why natural disasters occur in this world. The following is my explanation today on the Tenrikyo Ofudesaki Study Group on Facebook:
It is interesting that God tells us God has been on the sidelines viewing the behavior of human beings. Now God is telling us, that the behavior of human beings is causing God’s consternation. We know that with our special prayer, God will begin to help save the world. But God is telling us in chapter 6 of the Ofudesaki that this regret of people’s behavior, is also being released as natural disasters like tsunami and earthquakes. Could God’s regret be the negatve energy created from our evil behavior? God is releasing these energy as these natural disasters. In chapter 6, God refers to himself/herself as Moon/Sun or Tsukihi. It is the moon and sun that have effect on our climate and geological movements. Can God be using the moon and sun to release the negative energy? It is ironic, that it may not be human pollution that is causing climate change, but it may be our polluted minds causing them. Something to ponder about!
