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.

Tenrikyo

Why do people suffer? Why do good people suffer, and why do evil people appear to have joy? Why are some people afflicted by cancer? Why does an innocent child die? Why do people get into severe accidents? Are these coincidences or planned by an external force?

We believe that it is our own soul that brings upon joy or suffering to us. In the first verse in our most sacred book, God emphasizes the importance of understanding the soul by telling us:

Looking all over the world and through all ages, I find no one

who understands the heart (soul).  Ofudesaki 1-1

Gods tells us why we need to understand the soul:

In whatever matters, if the innermost heart (soul) of each of you

is purified, there will be no danger. Ofudesaki 13-83

Some people call the soul the heart or the spirit. Science has not yet  located or verified the existence of the soul, but many of us truly believe that it exists. “My soul exist, therefore I am” would be an analogous phrase to what the great philosopher Descartes once said to prove his existence. Our souls are who we are; and our bodies are only transient dwellings borrowed from God, that our souls utilize to seek true joy. Mankind was created by God to live the “Joyous life”. Some may wonder where the mind comes into play in relationship to the soul and the body. Is the mind part of the soul or is it associated with the body? The answer is somewhere in between. The soul interacts with our complex neural system (part of the body), giving each of us a unique mind that is ours to use as we please (see figure 1). Unfortunately, many of us use our minds in ways that go contrary to God’s pure mind. This is why we need to understand the soul.

IMG_1336figure 1

The soul enters the body and creates the mind, using the body’s complex neural system.

Why is understanding the soul important? Like the DNA (genes) that stores the information to construct and maintain our bodies, the soul stores the records of our past evil actions.The soul by itself is an amalgam of positive energies derived from God at our creation. Each of us has the positive energies of God within us. These positive energies should only bring upon joy to us (see figure 3). But throughout our past lives (incarnations included), many of us have committed evil acts or sins against each other. These negative acts produce the negative energies that surround the pure soul (figure 4). Sufferings, inconveniences, and temptations are a result of the delayed manifestation of these negative energies (figure 5) that surround the soul. We eventually reap what we have sowed. Understanding the soul explains how causality and karma function; but it is not as simple as this. There is more we can learn from the soul.

figure 4

When we act on our negative thoughts, we cause suffering to others; and also create negative energies which the soul collects and stores.

figure 5

Our negative energies around the soul manifesting into delayed sufferings and temptations to ourselves.

When we understand the soul, we realize that our present and future obstacles may be the result of our own past evil actions. We should not become angry at the messengers of our souls. Do not blame your spouse, coworker, strangers, or even God. It is easy to act with retribution when you feel that you have been wronged. It is also easy to blame others, even blaming God when suffering occurs. When we believe in the soul, we must look within ourselves first.

If we can calm our mind and not act upon the evil thoughts (see figure 6) in our minds when the soul delivers these inconveniences or temptations, we can gradually eliminate evil thoughts from our minds; and therefore eliminate the negative energies associated with our evil actions (figure 7). Eventually we can purify our minds and have only joy delivered by our pure positive soul (see figure 8). This is God’s promise of our salvation. Understanding the soul is the first step to our salvation.  The second step is believing in the soul and responding appropriately to what the soul manifest.

IMG_1295figure 6

Evil thoughts are greed, arrogance, self love, miserliness and covetousness.

figure 7

No negative energies or negative thoughts created if we do not act on our evil thoughts.

IMG_1337figure 8

Our positive soul only brings upon joy.

God tells us that God will begin to work to have the world understand the soul. God tells us in our sacred book:

From now on, no matter how serious the illness may be,

there is no illness that is incurable depending on the mind.  5-13

However serious an illness will become,

I never say that it will not be cured. 12-52

The saving of those whom doctors are unable to save is the foundation of the path. You tell them the teachings. They listen and they are healed. Oct 17, 1893 Osashizu

The sick must not be left to suffer. I trust none of you would leave the sick to suffer. Those whom doctors consider to be beyond their help will merely be left to die. Saving such people is called the basis for teaching. October 17, 1893 Osashizu

God will save you from any illness if one begins to purify his or her mind. The first step is to believe in the soul to begin this process of purifying one’s mind.

Understanding the Soul

THE TRUTHS OF HEAVEN

Why do people suffer? Why do good people suffer, and why do bad people appear to have joy? Why are some people afflicted by cancer? Why does an innocent child die? Some explain by saying it is God’s will, or only God knows. Sometimes we are told not to worry about what happens to us on earth; we are told that the good will be rewarded in heaven, while the evil will languish in hell.

We believe that it is our own soul that brings upon joy or suffering to us. In the first verse in our most sacred book, God emphasizes the importance of understanding the soul by telling us:

Looking all over the world and through all ages, I find no one

who understands the heart (soul).  Ofudesaki 1-1

Some people call the soul the heart or the spirit. Science has not yet  located or verified the existence of the soul, but many of us truly believe that it exists. As Descartes once said, “I think therefore I am” to substantiate his existence. “My soul exist, therefore I am” would be an analogous phrase for those who believe in the soul. Some believe that the soul leaves our bodies at death and enters the afterlife permanently. Others believe that our souls (we) will continue for eternity, existing  both in heaven and earth (figure 1).

Why is understanding the soul important?

OUR BELIEFS FROM A RELIGIOUS PERSPECTIVE:

God descended from heaven to teach us how to live the joyous life. God through Oyasama (Miki Nakayama) and the Ofudesaki (sacred book)  gives us the recipe to world salvation. These are the following instructions: 

To continue to purify our minds of negative thoughts ( sin/evil ) when confronted with temptation and sufferings manifested by the soul.

To spread and share God’s truth; telling people that illness and suffering may be God’s guidance to help one understand the soul/heart. This conveyance of God’s truth is called hinokishin .

To pray daily with our special prayer (Joyous Service), asking God to help people understand the soul/heart and to sweep evil from their minds. We pray for the salvation of others! This is why our prayer is so important in our faith.

 

Kanrodai at Ojiba is where our prayer is directed toward.

“Evil sweeping. Save them please, Universal Saving God “.

To heal the people whose minds have been revealed when God guides them to us by the sazuke (saving prayer); and teach them about the soul (heart), causality and true sincerity. True sincerity is a mind that ponders over suffering and obstacles that the soul delivers, and accepts these inconveniences in a joyous manner. This will make our minds pure and spirited; and by the principle of causality will bring forth joy in the future due to the pure soul (heart).

This process of (1) purifying our own mind, (2) spreading the truth (hinokishin), and (3) praying, continues until all mankind is purified of evil in their minds. God hastens for the day that all minds of the world are pure. When this occurs, there will be heaven on earth for all of God’s children.

GOD’S PROMISE:

All mankind will live a joyous life with everyone helping each other.

WHAT WE ASK YOU TO DO:

Please share this website with others; and have about the soul/heart. Continue to read the Ofudesaki to understand why God descended from heavan!

How Smart are we?

Just today I saw two baby birds who were being taken care by their mother. I thought to myself  how in nature animals protect and nurture their young. Science would explain this phenomenon as instinct to take care of their off springs. I believe that humans also have this instinct; but our cerebral system gives us the ability to override our instincts for better or worse. For example child abuse and abortion are examples of our mind masking our instincts. Who could imagine a parent not loving their newborn? But this is happening in our society. We have become too smart, even to think that we can ignore nature; but at what consequences to mankind?

Arrogance

Having arrogance I believe is the worst sin. Let me explain. Arrogance is not being right or wrong; it does not matter. Arrogance is thinking one is better than another person for any reason. It can be because of race, intelligence, power, influence, age, religion, etc. Again it is not about being right or wrong. If one feels superior due to being in the right, it is still arrogance.

Having arrogance is like a distorted mirror. As a distorted mirror does not reflect the true image; having arrogance, one may not be able to understand what appear before one. Arrogance often leads to suffering

It is from this perspective of arrogance that I would like to talk about the soul. The soul has no color, it has no intelligence, no politics, it is ageless, has no shape and no gender. Every soul is said to be equal and once pure. How can there be arrogance if we all believe in the soul?

But in this world, we place importance on what is related to our physical bodies, like wealth, education, politics, race, religion, and gender. This gives our minds opportunities to have arrogance, which often lead to anger, hatred, and senseless retribution.

It is for all these reasons that we should believe in the soul to have peace in the world. The following is information from our religion about the soul.

Why do we have joy or suffering? Ever since mankind was created, people have pondered why we suffer or have joy. Why do good people suffer, and why do bad people sometimes prosper? Religion tries to explain it. Some explain by saying it is God’s will, or only God knows. Sometimes we are told not to worry about what happens to us on earth; we are told that the good will be rewarded in heaven, while the evil will languish in hell.

Our religion believes that it is our own soul that brings upon joy or suffering to us. In the first verse in our most sacred book, is the following:

Looking all over the world and through all ages, I find no one

who understands the heart (soul).  Ofudesaki 1-1

Why is it so important to understand the soul? Some people call the soul the heart or the spirit. We all agree that our physical bodies are not immortal. Most religious people believe that there exists a spirit or soul in our bodies that is eternal. Science cannot confirm the existence of the soul, but many of us believe that it does exist. As Descartes once said, “I think therefore I am” to substantiate his existence. “My soul exist, therefore I am” would be an analogous phrase for those who believe that we are the souls. Some believe that the spirit or soul leaves our bodies at death and enters the afterlife permanently. Others like myself believe that our souls (we) will continue for eternity, existing in both heaven and earth (figure 1).

figure 1

The soul is an amalgam of positive energies derived from God. Each of us has the positive energies of God within us. These positive energies should only bring upon joy to us (see figure 2). But throughout our past lives, many of us have committed evil acts or sins against each other. These negative acts produce the negative energies that surround the pure soul (figure 3). Sufferings, inconveniences, and temptations are a result of the manifestation of these negative energies (figure 4) that the soul stores. We reap what we have sowed; but it is not as simple as this.

When we understand the soul, we acknowledge that our obstacles are the result of our own past evil actions. We should not become angered at the messengers of our souls.

It is also easy to blame others, even blaming God when suffering occurs. When we believe in the soul, we must look within ourselves first.

If we can calm our mind and not act upon the evil thoughts (see figure 5) in our minds when the soul delivers these inconveniences or temptations, we can gradually eliminate evil thoughts from our minds; and therefore eliminate the negative energies associated with our evil actions (figure 6). Eventually we can purify our minds and have only joy delivered by our pure positive soul (see figure 2 again). This is God’s promise of our salvation.

God will save you from any illness if one begins to believe in the soul to purify the mind!

 

OUR BELIEFS FROM A RELIGIOUS PERSPECTIVE:

God descended from heaven to teach us how to live the joyous life.  God through Oyasama (Miki Nakayama) and Tip of the Writing Brush (Ofudesaki)  gives us the recipe to world salvation. These are the following instructions: 

God encouraged the early followers to purify their minds by understanding the soul/heart.  God often placed illness as guidance on the early followers to help them purify their minds in order to hasten the performance of our prayer (Joyous Service). This service performed with a pure mind, initiates God’s blessings of world salvation.

God tells us to tell others about the soul; and to tell people that God will begin to help them purify their minds. Tell them that their illness may be God’s guidance to help them believe in the soul. God is giving them a preview of their future. This special guidance or blessing is what makes this religion so unique. We pray for the salvation of others! This is why our prayer is so important in our faith. This forewarning to others is called hinokishin.

God tells us to perform the Joyous Service (prayer) when our minds are pure (true sincerity). When our sincere prayers are accepted by God, God will then begin to work. God will place temporary illness as guidance to the people we had spread God’s truth to.

When people we have introduced the soul come to us to be healed, we further explain the soul and God’s teachings.  They are then healed and are able to believe in the soul; and begin to purify their minds by themselves. This process of (1) purifying our own mind, (2) spreading the truth (hinokishin), and (3) praying, continues until all mankind is purified of evil in their minds. God hastens for the day that all minds of the world are pure. When this occurs, there will be heaven on earth for all of God’s children.

OUR PATH:

To continue to purify our minds of negative thoughts ( sin/evil ) when confronted with temptation and sufferings manifested by the soul.

To spread and share God’s truth; telling people that illness and suffering may be God’s guidance to help one understand the soul/heart. This conveyance of God’s truth is called hinokishin .

To pray daily with our special prayer (Joyous Service), asking God to help people understand the soul/heart and to sweep evil from their minds.

Kanrodai at Ojiba where our prayer is directed toward.

“Evil sweeping. Save them please, Universal Saving God “.

To heal the people whose minds have been revealed when God guides them to us; and teach them about the soul (heart), causality and true sincerity. True sincerity is a mind that ponders over suffering and obstacles that the soul delivers, and accepts these inconveniences in a joyous manner. This will make our minds pure and spirited; and by the principle of causality will bring forth joy in the future due to the pure soul (heart).

GOD’S PROMISE:

All mankind will live a joyous life with everyone helping each other.

WHAT WE ASK YOU TO DO:

Please share this website with others and tell them about the soul/heart.

Santa Claus Sees All

When I was small, I believed in Santa Claus. I was told that Santa Claus sees everything that we do, from the good stuff to the bad stuff. I was often fearful at Christmas to find what I had under the Christmas tree. I usually don’t think of Christmas until November, but yesterday upon seeing John McCain’s eulogies, and the news stories of the sex abuse in the Catholic diocese, I began to see a similarity between God and Santa Claus. Let me explain.

Like my childhood memories of Santa Claus, I believe God sees our every action. This is opposite the philosophy that we can get away with evil as long as no one sees us doing it, like what is happening to the Catholic Church and what is happening in our government.   A little greed here, and a little take away there, the thought is that we will not be punished as long as we hide our actions from the public. We can say all the good things about a bad person, or bad things about a good person, but even the best eulogies will not affect the outcome of God’s plan for their soul.

I believe God sees our souls that stores our every actions and thoughts. The judgment of people is fraught with bias and error due to the contamination of evil in their minds; therefore right and wrong is sometimes difficult to distinguish in our daily lives. It is our souls that God will distinguish to either punish or reward us. This is why we should all believe in Santa Claus of our childhood!
