『おふでさき註釈』、p. 79


Commentary by Yoshitaro Ueda (2009)

From Michi no dai: Foundation of the Path 35:55

Although God the Parent is openly revealed in this world, there has so far been “no one who knows the truth.” From now on, God will teach the truth of any and every matter. God will then show free and unlimited workings. We humans can only understand the meaning of God’s workings if God teaches the truth of all things or the truth of heaven. When God shows the divine workings without explaining them, we will not understand their meaning. If God explains them, however, we will be able to understand what they mean and represent. We will also be able to use our minds and lead our lives in accordance with the truth of heaven; this, in turn, will allow us to receive God’s free and unlimited blessings.
