The key to the solution of all problems, whether they concern an individual, a nation or the world, is makoto – love.
The lack of administrative ability stems from a lack of love. The shortage of material blessings is caused by a shortage of love. The absence of morality is due to an absence of love. The deterioration of social order is the result of the deterioration of love. Indeed, the basic cause of all distressing problems is an insufficiency of love.
Religion, education and the arts are only skeletal forms without love at their core.
Ah, makoto, makoto! I say to all humanity that the only key to solving all problems is love and love alone.
