within and the world. I shall reveal the entire mind of each of you (God wanting us to understand the soul)
Imamade wa kami no zannen yamayama to
Mune ni hokori ga tsumori aredomo 12-3
Until now, to the mountainous regret of God,
much dust is piled in the hearts ( evil thoughts/energy surrounding the heart/soul). These energies manifest into suffering for ourselves.

Dono yona koto mo yu ni yuwaren 12-4

Once you have settled it in the mind,

Then the sufferings of the body will disappear.
The mind will be spirited step by step. (talking to early followers concerning weeding or guidance)

Kono shin wa doyu koto de aro nara
Mune no shiyan o kore ga daiichi 12-132
What is the meaning of this Original mind (the purity of the mind)?
Ponder the heart (what the heart brings forth). This is the most important (calm the mind when the soul brings upon suffering to make the mind pure).
Nani nitemo mune to kuchi to ga chigote wa
Kami no kokoro ni kore wa kanawan 12-133
If the heart and the mouth differ in expectation of result (heart attempts to purify mind and the mouth can prevents the action of our evil thoughts).

Summary: Chapter 12
God will begin to sweep the minds of the world. There will be no distinction between those in the religion and those who are not.
It is sad that much dust (evil) have accumulated in the hearts of the world. God could not act until today. Today God will reveal the minds of everyone (1887).
No one understood the words of God (Ofudesaki), this time God will work.
God will first sweep the hearts of his missionaries (timber) first. He says he wants these people to understand God’s truth, so that they can eventually convey the truth to others.
God is disappointed that the early followers cannot understand what has been taught to them. He has given warnings after warnings, but the early followers do not understand.
God will begin to weed the minds of the followers. He will start to place illness to guide them. He tells them to ponder the illness, and purify the mind. When this happens, the illness will go away. The mind will become spirited when the mind is pure.
God telling followers that God has been a spectator until now, but he will begin to work. God telling people what is written in the Ofudesaki will come true.
God says through the Joyous Service, everyone will be saved. God says that any illness can be cured by the Salvation service (sazuke) and the Joyous Service.
God again telling that the appointed date has not come, and telling early followers what has been said has not come true yet, but soon it will be seen (1887)
God talking to early followers that the time will come when they would see God’s work. God will teach the truth gradually as their minds become spirited.
God talking about the Shrine of God (Oyasama). God says that he is borrowing her mind, while lending his mind to Oyasama. Everything she writes or says is the truth. There is not a human thought.
God saying that no matter how much people have pondered, they do not have a mind to save others (not performing Joyous Service). But if they purify the mind, and pray, God will provide blessings (people coming to churches).
God also promises salvation against smallpox and other diseases.
God says that when all mankind is purified, the Kanrodai will be made. The Kanrodai represents the original mind (Oyasama’s mind). God wants us to purify our minds.
God talks about the illness that Shuji has. He says that this is a test. God says he has caused suffering for 39 years; and it is natural that one is skeptical of God’s blessings. But God tells that from now on God will begin to work. The followers and Shuji only needs to purify the minds to heal the leg.
God says that one must understand the origin of mankind, and why he was created.
God names the 10 instruments (sea creatures) in the muddy oceans at creation. He says that since that time, they have lived all different paths. God says that he will now train these people in this lifetime, and prepare them for the Kanrodai Service when all mankind is purified.
God telling early followers that he will enter their bodies and show them their minds shortly. He tells them that illness shown is a result of their thinking. God is showing them their minds or the way they are thinking. If they reflect and purify their minds, the illness disappears.
But if they do not reflect and purify their minds, he may withdraw from them and not guide them.
