The Pith and Marrow
of talking to oneself
I am going to tell you absorbed in spreading TEN-DOU.
I wish, you would talk
to yourself and answer your own questions such as shown below for the
sake of your advance in the Way.
Have not you ever prevented your junior from his
rising in the world?
Have not you ever brought disgrace upon the Way of your
Have not you ever
neglected your business to become a master of
Have not you ever been
retiring in any work for the Way?
Anyone used to spare the
lifetime given from Heaven for useless matters so
crazy as to have an illusion that it must be at onefs disposal. Anyone used to
spare the wealth given from Heaven and have an illusion that it must be at
onefs disposal, so that one might sow the seeds of onefs sins and crimes.
You should neither
underestimate nor overestimate your own ability. Not to
speak of the spirits in SAN-KAI, do you know how many people are there in
the world? How many people have you ever saved? How many men of ability
did you recommend to Heaven? Clear your head in order to consider the
I have never seen before
such a man who would devote himself to any holy
affairs as much as his worldly one. If a man would devote himself to any holy
affaires as much as his own, so nobody should be left unsaved in the world.
You should have to be responsible to the world for the public Salvation.
Rack your brains! Use your
brains! People who have something to do with
the Way shall be found within your reach, as far as your eye can reach and
within easy reach of your voice. There are so many men of wisdom should
be found where you might have not the least idea. Look at their eyes, watch
their behaviours and see through their minds additionally so that you could
extract and expose their original soul to your GEN-KAN. Calm yourself! Be
faithful from your heart! Expression shall be of secondary importance. A
man would feel with faithful mind.
Donft waste your time on
vain deeds, but make use of it for the sake of the
Way. You might just as well lecture nothing but the reason. You shall never
complain that you have little time. You might have no time as far as you
would think so, while you should have too much time to spare as long as you
would think so. You shall never complain that you have little ability. If you
might have 30 percent of necessary faculty by nature and manage to create
extra 20 percent for it, you could leave the rest 50 percent of it to Heaven. Do
your best in the physical and mental phases as well!
You shall be picked up, if
only you will give up yourself. If you will give what
you have, you shall be given what you want. Help others, so you shall be
helped. Save others, then you shall be saved. The fortune comes when you
recognize it, you shall miss it as sooner as you will go astray. Heaven helps
you whenever you ask for it, while you may scarcely retire before you can
expect of it.
You shall never complain
that you are too young to do. Let you be young,
there are so many people younger than you. Let you be old, there are so
many people older than you. There is a centre in the faithful mind. Nothing
shall be found where there is no faithful mind. As soon as you have saved
the right, you shall save the left. If you think of forward, you shall think of
behind next. You shall never visit the neighbourhood so often as to forget
the distant place. Anywhere you can find those people who are waiting for
you within your reach. You shall make it a rule to ask to yourself so often as
to recall them to you. Make a step forward in a remote region for the sake of
further spreading TEN-DOU. Never cease delivering a series of lectures on
the Way. If the time comes, you will find a lot of divine flowers in full bloom
Now, I have finished
sending a message for TEN-DEN SHI.
gGood medicine used to
taste bitterh c this word shall be dedicated to gthe
pith and marrow of talking to oneselfh.
