HINOKISHIN

God tells us in the Tip of the Writing Brush to tell people that he is going to work. We must tell people (plant the seeds) that God may place illness to guide them to sweep evil from their minds (Ofudesaki 14-65, 14-66). We must tell them now; how do we expect them to understand if they do not know the meaning of each occurrence that the soul delivers?  This is called hinokishin. Tell people, the following:

  1. God has descended from Heaven to save all mankind. God wants us to understand the heart (soul). We reap what we sow.

  2. That illness or suffering may be God’s guidance to remove evil (greed, arrogance, and self love) from your mind. The suffering is not punishment but God’s guidance to help understand the soul.

  3. When your mind is pure, the soul will only bring upon joy.

 

Hinoki is a refined and valuable timber and shin is defined as the truth. Could the process of hinokishin be defined as one who has true sincerity spreading God’s truths?
