Ofudesaki chushaku

2:7 People of the world at large may say, “That is a disease” “That is a pain,” but it is nothing of the sort. All such things are My hastening and My guidance that comes from My deep intention.

Commentary by Yoshitaro Ueda (2008)

From Michi no dai: Foundation of the Path 32:49

II:7 What this means is that God will assemble performers for the Service through what we call “illness” and “pain,” which will provide opportunities to give guidance. The verse makes it clear that “illness” and “pain” are not what they seem but are ways in which God urges performers to come along while guiding and drawing them.
