Summary: Chapter 8
God’s regret builds up day by day due to the evil thoughts of mankind. Negative energy of negative thoughts. How can God release the regret (negative energy)? God promises to work to sweep away the evil from the minds of man, and also release his regret. How does he do this?
God needs to have the early followers have a pure mind to perform the prayer. They need a pure mind to teach the people who God brings to them. This is why God compares the prayer’s mind to Oyasama’s mind to see if the prayer has a pure mind to convey God’s truth.
With the acceptance of the prayer, God places illness as guidance on others, and brings them to our places of worship to heal, but more important to purify their minds. This is how God releases his anger and regret.
God will teach the early followers the hand movements of the Joyous Service. It is not from a human mind.
The innermost heart of the world is reflected to God. Everyone has only self centered thoughts.
God wants the early followers to understand the blessings of child birth, either to delay or quicken the birth for the safety of the mom and child. He also wants us to consider the protection from small pox that he has blessed them with. He tells them that the pure mind brings upon these blessings.
God says that the place of residence (where God is) is where human beings were created.
God says that the parent of mankind lives at the residence. Oyasama (Miki Nakayama) is the parent. Because the parent exist, God’s blessings are possible. God needs the parent (Oyasama) to compare minds.
God discerns the good and evil. God says if your debts (evil) pile up, a path of oxen and horses may be possible in the next incarnation. But God says he will save you from this fate if you purify the minds.
God says that things have occurred, but we cannot see their origin. Do not know about cause and effect (karma, innen). God says that he will now show the future now by guiding people by placing illness.
God says that natural disasters are God’s work of releasing his anger and regret.
God says that he has been a spectator until now, letting natural law take effect(causality), but God says he will start to work now.
Site of Kanrodai (Original mind) located by the early followers by sweeping their minds of greed, arrogance, covetousness, miserliness, and self love. When they walked over the site, their bodies all stopped at this same location. The exact location is where mankind was created. Oyasama’s soul returns to this site in 1887, making the Kanrodai the shrine of God, where Oyasama and God exist to purify mankind.
Unless this Kanrodai is seen, God cannot go out to give us our blessings of bringing new people to be saved. This is where the prayers to save the world is directed toward, especially in 1887 when the soul of Oyasama returns to the origin. The identification of the site of where mankind was created is important. It prepares for the date where God begins to work to save the world (1887)
When all mankind is purified, the service will be done, and great blessing from heaven will come to the world.
