Summary

You do not know what path you are on. You do not understand causality, innen or karma.

God will start to work now to save the world.

People will start to come from all over to be saved from illness as God begins to prepare to work.

God telling early followers not to worry about the many people coming for God’s  blessings. God is hastening the Service to save mankind.

God telling the early followers to perform the Joyous Service. He will begin to work to bring people to the residence (churches).

God telling people he will guide the early followers with illness. Warns them to ponder over the illness. By pondering and reflecting, one can become healthy, but more important purify the mind.

The prayer (Joyous Service) with a pure mind will bring upon God’s blessings (1887).  God will bring more people to the places of worship.

God also tells us that if we remove greed, arrogance, covetousness, miserliness, and self love from our minds, we will become spirited.

With the acceptance of the special prayer, God distinguishes Nihon (God has entered), the people that can understand, and kara (God has not entered), the people that cannot understand. God begins to guide the people who have an open mind (nihon), and brings them to the places of worship.

The people of nihon (God has entered) only follow the people of kara (God has not entered) in the high mountains. God warns  the people of nihon concerning the regression to cow’s and oxen in their next lives if they continue to follow the evils of kara.

God tells the early followers, that if they get illness, it may be God guiding them to purify their minds.

God tells us that he will distinguish Kara  and nihon . He will guide the people of nihon first, by placing illness on them.  They will understand the relationship between the mind and body, and ponder to purify their minds. When this happen, they will be healed and saved.

The dust in the minds of the world, God also calls it his anger and regret. How does God release this negative energy or regret from the minds of mankind? God will begin to work by entering into the bodies of nihon  and release it as illness (guidance).

God telling people that when all mankind is purified, there will be paradise on earth.

This paradise, God  says there will be no more disease or illness. Man can live as long as he wants. There will be only joy.

God tells the early followers that they do not still understand God. God tells them he will place illness to guide them . He asks the early followers to calm their minds and ponder the occurrences.

God tells them to understand the Ofudesaki, but they still do not understand.

God emphasizes calming the mind and pondering to purify the mind. God tells us to perform the Joyous Service (prayer) with this kind of mind.

God calls the Joyous Service the “fertilizer”. The pure mind of the prayer is the “water”, which makes the fertilizer effective in bringing in a large “harvest” (new members).

God wants to distinguish kara  and nihon . This is accomplished by performing the Joyous Service. God helps guide the people of nihon first.

God loves everyone. God will do anything to save his children.

God tell everyone to understand the Ofudesaki. He wants people to calm their minds and perform the service. He wants them to take God’s path and go out to save the world. When this happens kara will become nihon.

God tells us not to be depressed, because the path of joy will come.

God tells us that he has already open the narrow path to joy by giving us the prayers (Joyous Service and teodori), but weeds ( bad thoughts) have begun to sprout among the early followers. God warns them to remove these evil thoughts from their minds, in order for the prayers to be effective in bringing new members to the places of worship.

God tells us that we see what is occurring now, but we do not understand what caused them. We do not understand causality, or how our minds effect the future.

God tells the early followers that he will teach them the hand movements for the Joyous Service to save the world.  He says even a mute will be able to pray by the hands only.

By this path of prayer, the root of all illness will be eliminated.

God will begin this path by starting with the people (nihon) in the high mountains.  They may ponder over their guidance, and become spirited in mind. For this to happen, God encourages the early followers to pray with a pure mind.

God tells the early followers that what has been predicted has not occurred, but will occur shortly (1887?).

After the world takes this path of praying, kara will become nihon.

God tells us about the creation of human beings. God created first human beings from a serpent and loach in the muddy ocean. Man has evolved from these origins.  He  created human  beings to live a joyous life (purpose of life).

God tells us that our blessings from God come from our sincerity (pure mind) in our minds.

God tells you not to have evil in your minds.
