Tenrikyo - The Reason of Heaven


This universe is the body of God.

Ponder this in all matters.

XII: 123 - 126

Everything that has been done is all by Moonsun,

but there is perhaps no one who knows this.

Moonsun is the original and persistent cause of all that is. In the past we studied and imagined all sorts of causes without being aware of this basic fundamental truth because of which all causes can be known. 

Today, there will be no time even to look aside.

I shall show you the proof quickly.

This is an invitation to see the proof of the truth quickly, right now at this moment. Open your eyes and stop imagining just long enough to see the truth as it is. 

When you see it, be convinced, whoever you are.

All of My talks proceed in this way. 

Reason from what you have seen. When the voice of the self-centered imagination, the voice that covers the truth like a speck of dust on a closely held lens is silent there is indeed only one. 

My regret up till now 

is not something that can be told in words. 

There is no need for us to analyze the dust that clouds our mind and put it into words. It is enough to just sweep it out until the mind is clear of it. 

If we wish to receive God the Parent's workings, or blessings, then we have no choice but to be sincere in putting into practice what Oyasama taught us. We must be prepared constantly to carry out what Oyasama teaches us to do, without letting our own minds get in the way.
