Ofudesaki chushaku

4:54 Many people from each country will begin to return yearning for Jiba. However, all of them are all My children, the children of Oyagami. They will be returnees who return because of the causality that exists between parents and children. Thus you must never think that it is a coincidence when they return.

『おふでさき註釈』、p. 61


Commentary by Yoshitaro Ueda (2008)

From Michi no dai: Foundation of the Path 34:50

God says that no matter where people may come from, “they all are of the original causality.” The word “causality” is a translation of the Japanese word “innen,” which is here used in the sense of the causality of origin. The original causality tells us that all of us humans were given birth at Jiba of Origin by God the Parent, whose children we all are. Since all of us are equally connected to God through the causality of origin, God does not discriminate among human beings.
