Third Edition

Listen attentively to anything which I, God, say! Everything depends on your mind.


Listen attentively to all the words of God! Everything depends upon your individual state of mind.


Commentary by Yoshitaro Ueda (2008)

From Michi no dai: Foundation of the Path 34:49

The verse says to listen carefully to what God says about anything at all. The phrase “Everything depends on the mind of each of you” means that God’s blessings are received according to the state of one’s own mind. God accepts our use or handling of the mind and manifests appropriate workings or blessings.
