Ofudesaki chushaku

4:62–64 Everyone in the world are equally My children. It is best that everyone gain insight into the hastening of My intent, which is to teach and instruct you in all things so that you can live a joyous, enjoyable existence.

『おふでさき註釈』、p. 62


Commentary by Yoshitaro Ueda (2008)

From Michi no dai: Foundation of the Path 34:51–2


To God, who created all humankind and the world, all humans in the world are equally God’s own beloved children. How can there be any discrimination against any of them on God’s part.


God is saying: “All My children throughout the world are equally dear to Me and, because I love them all dearly, I want to save them all. That is why I am trying, with every ounce of sincerity I can muster, to do so.”


God wants to teach God’s beloved children any and everything in order to hasten something. What is it that God is trying to hasten? It probably includes the awakening of God’s children, as indicated by the next verse. We may also say that God is trying to hasten their salvation and spiritual growth. These things may be implied by the word “quickly.” God’s hastening is focused on those things.
