OFUDESAKI 9-15

Interpretation:
The word preparation (moyo) is very important. God will not just go out to save the world. There are prerequisites or preparations that must be done before God will go out to save others. These instructions are all in the Ofudesaki. All through the contents of the Ofudesaki, God is preparing the early followers for the sole purpose of saving the world.

OFUDESAKI 9-11

Interpretation:
This translation is completely different from Church Headquarters. Weeding and fertilizing are both God’s guidance to help us understand the teachings. Both of them result in the purification of the mind, resulting in the elimination of illness. God compares this to the attempted elimination of illness by doctors and medicine.

New Year’s Resolution

 

As we start the New Year, it is a tradition to make a resolution.  We know the common resolution that most people make, but what resolution does God want from each of us?  In the Ofudesaki, the word shinjitsu or shin is written over 173 times.  So this must be a very important word or message that God wants us to understand. What is the definition of shinjitsu?  Church Headquarter translates shinjitsu as truth, sincerity, and truly, but this may not be what God wants to convey in using this word.  In the Ofudesaki, God often tells us to know or understand the Origin of human beings. You may ask what does the origin of human beings have to do with the word shinjitsu? I believe that shinjitsu refers to the Original mind of God that was given to the first parents of human beings. This is a mind without regret, covetousness, self-love, greed, and arrogance. This is a mind that will make us spirited, and have the Joyous life. God wants us to return to this mind. This is why I believe that this word appears over 173 times in the Ofudesaki.

 

The Origin explains the beginning of human beings, but it also symbolizes the Original mind (shinjitsu) given to the first parents. This Original mind represents heaven, while the earth, the instruments in the muddy ocean, represents the body. This is why God tells us in the Joyous Service, that human beings were created of components from both heaven and earth.  God tells us in the Ofudesaki that the Service is the beginning of the world, because we are asking God to sweep away the evil thoughts, so everyone can return to the pristine original pure mind of God that was given to the first parents.  This is a mind that will bring upon only joy.

 

In summary, the attainment of the Original mind (shinjitsu) is difficult. Most of us will fail to keep our resolution. They say most resolutions are broken in 17 days. But if one truly wants to attain the Original mind, and sweep our evil thoughts, the instructions are in the Ofudesaki. God tells us that when we attain the Original mind, we will become spirited and have the Joyous life!

OUDESAKI 9-10

Interpretation:
We know that illness exist in the world, but God tells us that illness should be nonexistent in human beings. God gave the first parents of human beings the Original pure mind of God. This is a mind that will bring upon only joy. This is why God tells us that illness should be nonexistent. God wants us to return to this pure mind. This is a mind without regret (oshii), covetousness (hoshii), self-love (kawaii), greed ( yoku), and arrogance (koman). Illness comes from the mind (from Mikagura-uta song 10).
