The Original mind is the most important concept of the teaching. This mind represents the Original pure mind of God that was given to the first parents of human beings. This Original mind represents heaven, as told in the 2nd part of the Joyous Service. “These workings, earth and heaven representing, wife/husband created and brought forth.” Earth is represented by some of the existing sea creatures in the muddy ancient ocean that was selected by God. God wants us to return the mind to the mind that was given to the first parents. This is a mind without regret, covetousness, self-love, greed, and arrogance. This mind will only bring upon joy by our hearts.
