Tenrikyo Dynamic Mission CHOOSING A VIEWPOINT

Point of view

The teaching of the Reason of Heaven also holds that no two human minds are exactly the same. That means that literally there are as many points of view as there are human minds.

Ponder over this talk, all of you in the world.
There is no mind the same as another.

When we look at the human journey over all times and places we find that attempts have been made narrow those diverse points of view down to a single point of view or  groupings of views that are deemed to be acceptable and views that are deemed to be unacceptable. The usual means employed in this narrowing process being reasoning and the application of either physical or psychological force.

Even until now, there have been teachings, ethical and ancient,
but there has been no one who knows the origin.

When we look all over the world through all ages we find that various points of view, belief systems and cultures have come and gone. It is also apparent that generally the points of view within a consensus grouping, a belief system or culture, find it difficult to imagine the end of the truths of the world that they subscribe and are bound to. Even though, when we look all over the world and through all ages we find that there is a constant current of restless dissatisfaction with the status quo within the human imagination that has led to changes of point of view. Those changes have happened either gradually or dramatically though in many cases the actual cause of those changes of point of view remain obscure or totally unknown. We also find that  the effort to establish a "correct" point of view for all human minds is constant and ongoing, so far no single lasting point of view or grouping of views has been successfully reasoned or imposed by force, either physical or psychological and human minds though clustered in a variety of belief systems and cultures remain incredibly diverse in their points of view and dissatisfaction with the status quo also remains high.

After listening to the sermons of those on the high mountains,
listen to the teachings of God in Truth and ponder.

The teaching of the Reason of Heaven deals with two categories of point of view. The first category holds all of the ordinary human thoughts, ideas and concepts that are based on the point of view and experience of being a separate individual body located in time and space. The second category is the point of view of the original consciousness that is deeper than and the origin of the first and is "free and unlimited" in its working as it is not bound to the limitations of a body such as illness, weakening and death.

Until now, all humankind has been pondering
only with the human mind..
This time, there is no need at all
to ponder with the human mind.

It is because of the dissatisfaction with the first category that the knowledge and understanding of the second category is offered as relief, salvation and true satisfaction. When awakened, the second category, informs the first category with a joyous free and unlimited point of view. 

The approach of the Tenrikyo Dynamic hastens awakening the human mind to the reasoning of the second category, the point of view of the free and unlimited original consciousness of all equally. If it appears that the Tenrikyo Dynamic teaching is mixed in with the first category it is the work of entering into the human mind and developing means for calming and settling the first category of human thinking, namely the point of view of ordinary reasoning based on a self centered imagination bound to and limited by a body.

This world is constructed on reason.
So I shall press upon you everything with the reason in verse.
I shall press, though not by force or word of mouth.
I shall press by the tip of My writing brush.

This universe is the body of God.
Ponder this in all matters.
So long as you remain unknowing that the body is
a thing borrowed, you can understand nothing at all.
