Commentary by Yoshitaro Ueda (2009)

From Michi no dai: Foundation of the Path 34:68

God will teach all things from now on, says the Ofudesaki, adding, “Make certain you make no errors of the mind.” Although we might be excused for making mistakes on account of ignorance, we will have no excuse once we are taught everything. We must not handle our minds or live our lives in ways that go against God’s intention or against the truth of heaven.

God’s providence is constant and the same for all times. Previously, however, no one had any knowledge of it. Only since we were told about God’s teachings and intention have we been in a position to know the preciousness of God’s providence. Our awareness of God’s teachings and intention allows us to understand how to receive the divine providence and workings. This awareness also helps us understand what constitutes going against God’s intention and what undermines our ability to receive the divine providence.

This concludes my remarks on Part IV.
