Previous fates collected, protectionwill be done (by the heart/soul)
Forever, this will certainly settle (the heart becomes pure).
*(The heart (soul) was once pure, but has dust surrounding it. These dusts are the evils of arrogance, greed, and self-love. These dusts are what causes us to have illness or misfortunes in our lives by the principle of Karma, causality or innen).
There is no one who knows the pure heart (soul). The pure heart brings upon joy due to positive causality. It is the heart that carries our fate (karma, innen, causality). It carries the negative energies from our negative thoughts.
Tells us that the “Purpose of Life” is to live a Joyous Life.
God descended from Heaven to save all mankind. Saving implies the return of all mankind to the original pure heart(soul). When this occurs, there will be only joy emanating from the innermost heart.
If we are spirited (mind pure), by the law of cause and effect, our future will be prosperous and joyous. When the world is spirited, there will be everlasting joy.
God tells us how to save others. Perform the Joyous Service (prayer). This service brings people to our churches. But the service only works with a pure mind of the prayer. This is why God hastens for the early followers to purify their minds.
God says that his workings have not been seen yet , but will come in the future (1887).
God wants the early followers to have a pure mind, so that they can pray to save others. He warns them through the Ofudesaki.
God warns early followers through the Ofudesaki (Tip of the Writing Brush). If early followers do not listen, he then gives guidance through illness (weeding the mind, to remove evil from minds). God enters them, and guides them.
God talks about the path of joy. God tells us that it may not be easy, due to causality. But if we persist by calming our minds when suffering or inconvenience occurs, gradually we can purify our minds. This will bring upon joy in the future. But true joy is shared joy, so we must share the teachings with others (narrow path). This is why God has given us a prayer (Joyous Service) to perform, that will bring others to our churches (narrow path). God is said to compare our minds with that of Oyasama’s mind during our prayer; and if it is pure, God will give blessings (guidance) to those who are open minded (nihon). They come to us, we teach and pray for them, and they are cured of the illness (guidance).
God then warns Shuji (Oyasama’s son) that his leg pain is a guidance from God; Shuji’s mind is not pure or the followers minds are not pure, and tells him how to purify his mind.
Mankind is not evil: only dusts of greed, arrogance , and self love have surrounded his heart (soul); this dust (evil thoughts) originates from the mind.
God predicts the passing away of Oyasama (Miki Nakayama) when the early followers finally purify their minds (1887). Why would the passing away be beneficial? This is when God will begin to work, and the Joyous Service begins to become effective in bringing people to our churches. Oyasama’s soul returns to the original location of creation (Kanrodai), and the world will have access to God. This is why we pray toward the Kanrodai. This pillar will become the shrine of God due to Oyasama returning to the original site of creation in 1887.
Talking to Shuji and early followers to replace their minds so that the Joyous Service can become effective. God Promises Shuji a wife and 60 more years if he follows God’s instructions. This does not occur due to Shuji not following God’s requests.
