Your illness can be cured

Throughout time, many of the prophets were able to heal people of their illnesses. But what was the purpose in the ability to heal the sick? Was this a way of telling people that they represented God? Or did these prophets understand the causes of these illnesses?  

If we are to understand the source of our illness, or disease, will we be able to cure our own inflictions?  Do all people have the capability to heal?  In the Tip of the Writing Brush is the following:

From now on, I shall save you from any pains, sufferings, or tumors by the Sazuke (prayer of healing). 6-106

No matter how serious your illness will become, I shall save you by the Sazuke (prayer of healing). 6-108

However serious an illness will become, never say that it will not be cured. 12-52

Understanding Causality is important in the removal of an illness.  Our prayer (sazuke and joyous service) begins this process.

How Do We Remove Evil?

surprised that there are no comments?

HEAVEN'S TRUTH CHURCH

I will start off by saying all people are good. In the Book of Prophecy (Ofudesaki) are the following verses:

Looking all over the world and through all ages,

I find no one who is evil. 1-52

Among all mankind, there is no one who is evil.

It is only a bit of dust (evil thoughts) stuck on. 1-53

The world today faces individuals that are called Islamic terrorist. They have decided to kill innocent people. What do we do with these people? Recently, there has been talk of killing these evil people, so that we will not have to worry about them harming us. From a logical point of view it does make sense; but from a practical approach, it will not be possible to eliminate every terrorist. It will not be possible, because there is a pool of people who share the same evil thoughts as the terrorists…

How Do We Remove Evil?

I will start off by saying all people are good. In the Book of Prophecy (Ofudesaki) are the following verses:

Looking all over the world and through all ages,

I find no one who is evil. 1-52

Among all mankind, there is no one who is evil.

The world today faces individuals that are called Islamic terrorist. They have decided to kill innocent people. What do we do with these people? Recently, there has been talk of killing these evil people, so that we will not have to worry about them harming us. From a logical point of view it does make sense; but from a practical approach, it will not be possible to eliminate every terrorist. It will not be possible, because there is a pool of people who share the same evil thoughts as the terrorists. These evil thoughts like viruses are contagious, and easily transferred from one impure mind to another. How do we prevent the spread of these evil thoughts that originate from a particular religion?

I will be politically incorrect and will talk about the Muslim religion or idealism, which is turning out these evil thoughts. Yes, the world continues to say that the majority of Muslims are good people, and oppose these terrorists; but it is from this pool of believers that these terrorists come from. We must deal with the Muslim religion.

We must become politically incorrect, and say that the Muslim religion is evil. We must change the minds of the terrorist, and the Muslim people and show them that their religion is wrong. How do we show a religion of billions of people that their religion may be wrong? How do we change the mindset of people who may kill for their religion, believing that God is with them? In the Book of Prophecy, God tells us to purify our minds of greed, arrogance, and self love. God tells us to calm our minds, and ponder. When we purify our minds, we will be able to understand God, and his teachings. God also tells us to pray with a pure mind to help these people eliminate evil from their minds.

How Do We Change Our Fate?

Why is change so difficult? We all promise that we will change, but will we? Statistics will say that we do not change. Look at the recidivism rate of alcoholics and gamblers. He or she may promise to stop his or her destructive behavior, but statistics will again show us that they will fail. So how do we change our behaviors when confronted with life’s challenges or temptations?

God tells us that there is fate that each of us carries with us. It is this fate that either presents to us as suffering or joy. This may explain why some people are inclined to become alcoholics and addicts, or why some people suffer. This may also explain why good people sometimes suffer. How do we make it possible to have only “Good” fate. God tells us to calm our minds, and ponder when confronted with challenges or temptations.

How do we calm our minds? God tells us to remove the thoughts of greed, arrogance, and self-love in order to eliminate “bad” fate. God also tells us that this is difficult to accomplish. But by acknowledging and not acting on these evil thoughts, we can eventually eliminate these thoughts from our minds. It is these evil thoughts that surround the pure soul (heart), and prevent it from radiating joy in our lives. It is these evil thoughts that the soul carries, that become our fate.

But negative fate is not hopeless. On the contrary, it gives us opportunities to purify our minds. It is our actions upon facing these confrontations that prove our intent. In the Book of Prophecy (Ofudesaki), God tells us that he does not want our apologies; it is to our positive actions that God accepts. It is these repeated challenges and temptations (fate), which provide us the opportunity to remove evil from our minds. It is the calming of our minds, and not acting on our evil thoughts that will eventually eliminate these thoughts from our minds. When this happens, our souls become detached from the negative fate (evil thoughts), and radiate only joy.

It is this soul (heart) which is not identifiable in our physical bodies that we claim to carry our negative thoughts (fate). Like the DNA of our genes, it appears to carry information that will affect our future. But unlike the immutable development of our genes, we can change our fate by changing our thoughts. We can do this by calming our minds and pondering.

Happy Mother’s Day

As most of us celebrate Mother’s Day today, we must remember and thank the original mother of all mankind. I will explain further. In the Christian religion, Jesus is considered the Son of God and was sent to save mankind. In the Heaven’s Truth Church (Tenrikyo), Miki Nakayama (Oyasama) was sent by God to save all mankind. Both were sent by God to teach mankind; but more important to help all mankind live a joyous life in heaven or on earth.

In Japanese, Oya is translated as parent.  In the story of creation in the Book of Prophecy (Ofudesaki), God created mankind to live a joyous life with everyone helping each other. From the Muddy Oceans, God randomly selected life from the sea, and created the first ancestors of mankind. God is said to have contributed his pure mind (heart/soul) to the first parents of mankind. Therefore, all humans have all the genes of the organisms of the ancient seas, but we also have the pure mind of God, which people refer as the soul or heart. But unfortunately, through incarnations, we have covered our hearts/soul with the evils of greed, arrogance, and self-love. We call these evils dust, but Christians may label them as sins.

The Mother of mankind was sent back to help mankind uncover our souls/hearts of these evils. God through Oyasama has given us the Book of Prophecy (Ofudesaki). In the sacred book, God gives us the instructions on how to remove evil (sins) from our souls/hearts. It is through the everlasting efforts of Oyasama, that we give thanks to the first mother of mankind.

Thank you Oyasama!

The “Key” is the Pure Mind

For those who believe that your religion is the truth, how do you spread the truth to the world? Some religions use fear in recruiting people; other religions promise a reward to bring people into their place of worship. In the Heaven’s Truth Religion (Tenrikyo), God tells us that he has already given us the truth. The secret to the “Purpose of life” is in this book called the Book of Prophecy (Ofudesaki), which is comprised of over 1000 verses. This book is accessible to anyone who has Internet access at heaventruth.com or the time to visit a few of our churches sparsely distributed across the country. The book is attainable, but is not easily comprehended. God tells us that to understand God’s truth, we must remove evil (greed, arrogance, and self love) thoughts from our minds. It is like God has placed the truth in a locked container, which everyone has access to. The key to the container is found in our minds. It is a pure mind that will open God’s truth.

Reincarnation as the Truth

The world is round, and it is not flat. This discovery, which was at first ridiculed, initiated the impetus in science of new discoveries. It is our old and false beliefs that sometimes hinder our progress as human beings. There is reincarnation, and there is no heaven or hell. How much more does the world have to suffer before we realize that we are causing our own sufferings? Our present conditions are what we have done in the past. Our actions of what we do today are foretelling our future. Our future is what we do today. We have control.   God tells us that we see joy and suffering in the world and we see good and evil in the world; but we do not understand the relationship.

The majority of the world is brainwashed into believing that there is a God that wants praise, and worship. But God loves us, like we love our own children. Do we want our children to praise or worship us? We want for them to have a great life. It is the same with God, God wants the world to live in joy. Yet there are religions that advocate the enslavement, and elimination of individuals that do not have their beliefs. But does God want us to kill his own children?

What greater blessing than a system of purification of the mind that God has created? We control our own destiny. If we do evil, we suffer. If we do good, we have joy. We are in control. Yet there are many in the world that only care about themselves or their families, and take advantage of others. They do not realize that they are harming themselves. God tells us that are merits and evils are accounted as credits and debits that must eventually be distributed. It is not God we must fear, it is our evil actions that we must fear.

Yet there is some of my Christian brother that will say that we are good and we believe in heaven. But you must realize that there are other religions that believe in the same concept of God and heaven that you believe in. One side may die for that belief, and the other side may kill for that belief.

Even Jesus said that he would be resurrected after death. Was he talking about reincarnation? Was he telling people, that you can kill my body, but you cannot eliminate the soul, which will come back? One of the bloggers once told me that the early Christians believed in reincarnation; might this be true?

It may not be a belief in heaven that will eventually save the world. It may be the belief in reincarnation that will enlighten our minds, to remove the evils in our minds. This will bring upon heaven on earth. Your thought please?

Heaven’s Truth and Energy

The mind is the source of what appears in the world, and the mind creates our future. How does our mind affect what happens in the world? Energy supplies the mind to create our thoughts, which are also made of energy. The different types of energies also differentiate our thoughts. Positive energy, which I believe, radiates from the pure soul or the innermost heart brings upon stability, while negative energies created by the mind brings upon instability.

Our minds create thoughts every day. This sometimes creates enormous amount of negative energy or instability in our bodies. Where does this harmful energy go? In the Book of Prophecy, God tells us that the heart (soul) and the mouth are our sand and filter. What does this mean? The pure positive soul captures these negative energies, like the sand that attracts the waste in purifying our sewage. The mouth refers to our ability to act on our negative thoughts or resist them. What does the soul do with the surrounding negative energies that it has attracted from the mind?

The negative energy can be released inside the body, causing mutation to the cells resulting in cancer. It can also cause disease and infections. The negative energy attached to the soul can also be released outside of the individual, causing sufferings or misfortune back to the individual.

In the Book of Prophecy, God also tells us that our bodies are not ours, but they are loaned to us. If this is true, our bodies are part of God and God has an enormous amount of negative energy that is created by our minds. God calls this energy his anger or regret. How does God release his regret or anger? Where does this energy transfer? God sometimes releases this energy into the environment, causing natural disasters like earthquakes, lightening and great winds.

Now we know how our bodies dispose of our negative energies or God’s regret and anger. It appears that this process brings upon suffering to us. How do we bring upon joy to ourselves? Let us now explain the mouth as the filter. Evil thoughts, which create negative energy, are greed, arrogance, and self-love. We have the ability to act or resist these thoughts. God tells us to calm our minds when we are faced with temptation or barriers and not act upon our evil thoughts. When this happens, gradually less evil thoughts emerge from our mind. This results in the elimination of negative energy. The soul (positive energy) is detached from the negative energies and now only brings upon stability and joy to the individual.
