1:73 People will interpret this marriage in various ways with their human understanding. Yet the reason that I, Oyagami, made it come to be is completely different and from My deep intention.
Commentary by Yoshitaro Ueda (2008)
From Michi no dai: Foundation of the Path 32:46
1:73 The verse says that the “self-centered mind”—which is to say, self-serving ideas and thoughts—will not do. God’s mind has nothing in common with any thought that arises from human thinking.
