5:29 If you are capable of truly awakening to My intention, I shall teach you the hand movements of the Service of the Kanrodai that manifest the providence of the beginning of the world.

『おふでさき註釈』、p. 76


Commentary by Yoshitaro Ueda (2009)

From Michi no dai: Foundation of the Path 35:51

When people come to understand God the Parent’s mind “truly”–i.e., in the depths of their hearts–God will teach “the hand movements of the beginning of this world,” referring to the hand movements for the Service, hand movements that represent the principles of God the Parent’s work during creation. God will teach the hand movements for the Service, which are based on the truth about the creation of this universe. God will first sweep people’s hearts clean to enable them to become aware of and understand the Parent’s intention before teaching them the hand movements for the Service, which represent the truth about the beginnings of origin. Such is the logical order.
