10:54 Heaven and earth are physical manifestations of the essence of Kunitokotachi-no-Mikoto and Omotari-no-Mikoto, the true Parents of human beings. The entire human race was born in the embrace of heaven and earth due to Oyagami’s protection. Thus, all people in the world are all My beloved children and human beings are all brothers and sisters.

*Note: The essence of heaven and the Moon is Kunitokotachi-no-Mikoto. The essence of earth and the Sun is Omotari-no-Mikoto. At the world’s beginning, Moon-Sun entered Izanagi-no-Mikoto and Izanami-no-Mikoto to create human beings and the world. The essence of Moon-Sun is presently manifested in heaven and earth, and humans are bestowed with life and are born in the embrace of heaven and earth. Thus, heaven and earth are the true Parents of human beings. Human beings live in the bosom of Oyagami, the embrace of heaven and earth, and are protected night and day by Oyagami’s providence.
In the Mikagura-uta, The Songs for the Service, we sing: “Representing heaven and earth I have created husband and wife. This is the beginning of the world.”

註 天は月様くにとこたちのみこと、地は日様をもたりのみことの御理である。この世の初め月日両神がいざなぎのみこと、いざなみのみことに入り込んで人間世界をお造り下された。この月日両神の御理は、現に天地とお現れ下され、人は天地の間に生をうけて生まれて来る。即ち、天地は人間の真実の親である。人間は、天地抱き合わせの親神様の懐住居をさせて頂き、日夜親神様の御守護を頂いて暮らしているのである。おつとめおお歌に、
ちよとはなし かみのいふこときいてくれ  あしきのことはいはんでな  
このよのぢいとてんとをかたどりて  ふうふをこしらへきたるでな  これハこのよのはじめだし
