Following the principle revealed in the Shinji for July 1, Kami gives us two points of realization, followed by three deep understandings we must have in the Shinji for July 15.
Here is first point of realization.
The majority of people, who are leaders, loved and respected in society, all live by the principle of the path.
They give back the strength of their unmei to the world (society) and have the kokoro (conviction) to walk the right path.
Those who have kept learning Kami’s teachings should be living like one of the majority of people shown in this Shinji. People, who are leaders, loved and respected does not indicate a person, who gains status nor leaves properties, but goes on the right path without being swayed regardless how much the environment changes. Because they are living a life fulfilled with happiness, people surrounding them love and respect them. Pure and simple, personality matters.
In coming society, many people will be attracted by a person, who lives with an enriched kokoro; kind, caring, and speaking words of love. Those people live by the principle of the path naturally. They harmonize with others without going beyond or less their own parameter. That is how they give back the strength of their unmei to society, and are being loved and respected.
Second point of realization follows.
To the Shinja
How are you striving to make the best of the teachings in your life?
Do you have the kokoro (resolve) to live and give back to the world (society)?
Kami is asking “How are you striving to make the best of the teachings in your life?” You must reflect yourself and realize how you have been living; if you are learning Kami’s teachings, if you are lacking the effort to live by the teachings, or if you are giving back your strength to the society. Those who have been striving to make the best of the teachings would answer “I am giving back to the society based on the teachings.” The accumulation of your effort living by the principle makes the big difference in the future.
Three deep understandings follow.
Human beings cannot become the person (existence) who guides society based solely on knowledge and experience.
They become complete for the first time when awareness from the principle is gained, understanding is deepened, and their kokoro (life) is supported by the principles.
People cannot become the person (existence) who guides society based solely on knowledge and experience. Therefore, people are not attracted by how much information you have nor how rich you are in things and appearance. Moreover, if you are only relying on material, knowledge, and experience, people will see you as thoughtless and insincere. What you need in your life is a kokoro, which is supported by the principles. The kokoro will suppress your jittai, shine the power of your unmei, lead your life healthy without any accidents, and let you live out your life. This is the flow of the coming era.
Here is second deep understanding.
When human beings learn the teachings as a family, live in a family where ties are deepened based on the principles, they know for the first time what the true human kokoro is and experience the worth of a family.
This is the environment (home environment) that fosters the human being who lives a life guided by their unmei.
To hone your unmei, it is necessary to learn the teachings as a family. “Learn the teachings as a family, live in a family where ties are deepened based on the principles” means understanding your position in your family and relate with them correctly. The environment will foster the true human kokoro; an enriched and compassionate kokoro. Human beings hone personality and unmei inside the family environment, where they make the best use of their strength for their family members. You will surely be able to live a life guided by their unmei.
Lastly, third deep understanding follows.
Do not take lightly the teachings that Kami has revealed to the world (society) through Shisha.
The teachings will foster human beings who will guide society on the right path; society will deepen the right connections and evolve, the more people there are who live by the teachings.
Kami’s teachings show the right kokoro that human beings should have. It is not a religious doctrine nor regulations. Therefore, put the teachings into your life. If you are able to practice the teachings into your daily life, you will be a person, who will guide society on the right path. You will give influences on you family and people around you. Society will deepen the right connections and evolve, the more people there are who live by the teachings. Family is the smallest unit of society; if your family members live by the teachings, your family will evolve.
The given unmei that each and every one of us has is honed inside family environment. It is not difficult. You just need to relate with them correctly by understanding your position in your family; father, mother, grandfather, grandmother, child. Keep learning Kami’s teachings with your family, and foster a harmonized family environment where unmei can be honed.
