The Eight Meanings of the Way of the Greatest Creator
Lifechanyuan takes the Way of the Greatest Creator, but what is the Way of the Greatest Creator and what are its meanings?
In general, the Way of the Greatest Creator is the Tao of nature, the Way that Jesus Christ, Buddha Sakyamuni, the immortal Lao Tzu, and Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) guided people to take. The Way of the Greatest Creator has eight major meanings:
1.The universe is the product of the the consciousness of the Greatest Creator.
2.Everything comes into being through its creation.
3.Everything runs in the consciousness of the Way of the Greatest Creator.
4.You must give play to your nature and conform to nature.
5.You must revere the Greatest Creator and follow his example.
6.Reality is the portrayal of all kinds of free LIFE consciousness.
7.Happiness, joy, freedom, and blessings are the main melodies of LIFE.
8.All is but a game.
I. The Universe is the Product of the Consciousness of the Greatest Creator
Structure generates consciousness. The original cosmic consciousness is Allah - Ancestor of Buddha, the Greatest Creator.
After the birth of Allah - Ancestor of Buddha, the Greatest Creator, Wuji turned into a being which had consciousness, and hence everything began to follow the consciousness of the Greatest Creator. Chaos turned into Deiform. Yin and Yang and the Four Images came into being. The universe took shape. Gradually the 20-parallel worlds and 36-Dimensional Space were formed and the appearance of time resulted from material movement. So, the universe is the product of the consciousness of the Greatest Creator. Acknowledging this is to take the Way of the Greatest Creator.
II. All Things are Created
In the beginning, the universe was Wuji and was void. With the being of the Greatest Creator, so began creation with consciousness and the creation of the first batch of LIFE - Gods, the sun, the moon, and the stars, and then the second batch LIFE - Angels (Super Celestial Beings). Then the Gods and Angels were asked to create all things based on a “blueprint” designed by the Greatest Creator. For all the LIFE we see on earth, not only people and animals, but even the grass and bacterial microorganisms come into being through His creation. We often observe that some LIFE seems to be of natural birth and can not see its creation process. In fact they are not formed by natural birth, but as the result of the operation of the reproduction program of LIFE. Understanding this is to take the Way of the Greatest Creator.
III. Everything Runs in the Consciousness of the Greatest Creator - the Tao.
The sunrise and sunset, the ebb and flow, the blooming and fading of flowers, the changing of seasons: who arranges and controls all these things? The answer is Tao. The intercourse of a man and woman gives birth to fertilized ovum which gradually develops in the womb of the mother to eventually form a complete human body with eyes, a nose, hair, hands, and feet. After nine months pregnancy and giving birth to a child, comes infancy, childhood, youth, adulthood, old age, deterioration, and death. Who arranges and controls this? The answer is also Tao. As long as we conduct mediations and read our revelations, we will find that everything in time and space is in the arrangement and control of Tao. Where does the Tao with the eight characteristics come from? We can ask the question this way. The normal operation of human society relies on the maintenance of constitutions, laws, rules and regulations. Where do they come from? Undoubtedly, they are developed by people. People are operating them from behind and here is the answer. The law that maintains the effective operation of all things in the universe - Tao, was developed by the Greatest Creator. “Someone” is operating the Tao from behind. And this “someone” is the Greatest Creator. Constitutions and laws reflect the people’s consciousness; therefore, Tao reflects the consciousness of the Greatest Creator. Conversely, the consciousness of the Greatest Creator is Tao. All things move in Tao, that is, all things move in the consciousness of the Greatest Creator. Recognizing this is to take the Way of the Greatest Creator.
IV. Highlighting Nature and Conforming to Nature
All things have Nature: mountains have mountain Nature, water has water Nature, Gods have God Nature, devils have devil Nature, people have human Nature, and beasts have beast Nature. Where do the Natures of all things come from? The answer is that the Natures of all things come from their structures. The kinds of structures determine the kinds of Natures. The structures of all things are created by the Greatest Creator. If things live and exist by their Natures, then they are following the will of the Greatest Creator. If they do not live and exist by their Natures, they are doing so against the will of the Greatest Creator. A dog is to watch the house and guard the yard, a cat is to catch mice, and a mouse is to dig holes and steal and eat granary. Only when all things perform their own functions can the universe move in an orderly way, and only then can it meet the decree of the Greatest Creator. If things were to deviate from their Natures, then they would deviate from the Way of the Greatest Creator and would thus be punished by the Tao. Take people for example. People have to live and exist by human Nature. Were they to lose their human Nature, they would be bound to be punished. Likewise, expending or suppressing human Nature is also deviating from the Way of the Greatest Creator. Let us say the Buddhist monks and nuns or the Christian priests and sisters have their innate human Natures destroyed or suppressed. That would be a deviation from the Way of the Greatest Creator. Human eyes are to see, ears are to hear, and sexual organs are to procreate. If they were to be left unused, it would also be against the will of the Greatest Creator in creating them. Roosters are created to crow, hens are created to lay eggs, and people are created to be active on the earth to please the Greatest Creator. If roosters refused to crow, hens refused to lay eggs, and people did not please the Greatest Creator, then what would be the use of the roosters, the hens, or the people? Chinese Taoists pursue magic powers and the arts, and that is not right. It is against the Way of the Greatest Creator. The things that are necessary for people’s survival and existence have been designed in structures of LIFE by the Greatest Creator, no more and no less. For instance, our eyes can only see chromatic images in the wavelengths between four hundred and seven hundred nanometers and our hearing threshold is between twenty hertz and twenty kilohertz, and that is enough. Exceeding those ranges is adverse to people. Many Chinese practitioners work through the Du Meridian and Ren Meridian, the microcosmic and macrocosmic orbits, retreating, making plant seeds germinate from within the hands, opening the third eye, or self-refining to bring out the primordial spirit, and so on. All these practices are contrary to the Tao of nature, thus contrary to the Way of the Greatest Creator. Just as the rooster that wants to lay eggs instead of crowing or the hen that wants to crow instead of laying eggs, the results are predictable. So taking the Way of the Greatest Creator is to highlight innate Natures and to follow them. "A clear-sighted mind is to perceive the Natures and perceiving these Natures is to attain Buddhahood." One will never attain Buddhahood if they do not perceive Natures and follow them.
V. Revering the Greatest Creator and Following the Example of the Greatest Creator
Reverence of the Greatest Creator allows us to "Do whatever we desire to, but not to go against the rules". If you do not revere the Greatest Creator, you will be lawless and do whatever you desire and bring harm upon yourself as a result. Therefore, revering the Greatest Creator is fully beneficial, brings no harm, and costs nothing. If you do not revere the Greatest Creator, disasters will befall you. Why should you refuse the deal with only gains but no losses?
The Greatest Creator is love, sincerity, kindness, beauty, faith and honesty, happiness, joy, freedom, and blessing. So we need to follow the example of the Greatest Creator. The Greatest Creator is also creation. So we should follow the example of the Greatest Creator to work and create and to get joy from labor. The Greatest Creator is also selfless dedication, so we should follow the example of the selfless dedication of the Greatest Creator and obtain blessing from selfless dedication.
VI. Reality is the Portrayal of the Diverse Free Consciousness of LIFE
Consider that if you have loose bowels, you must have eaten rotten or spoiled food, and if you have a headache, you probably wore something unsuited for the weather or lacked sleep due to excessive thinking. Consider that if someone scolds you today, you might have hurt them in the past. Is that not so? If we trace the roots of our situations, pains, misfortunes, or even the disasters we encounter, they are all the results of our false consciousness and the defects in our soul. "Good will be blessed with good and evil will be cursed with evil. If it is not repaid now, that is only because its time has not yet come. Once the time comes, it will surely be repaid". If you want to know what you have done in the past, look at your present situation; if you want to know your future situation, watch your present words and deeds. Your consciousness determines your life environment and your survival state. Like attracts like and identical frequencies resonate. Beauty attracts beauty and ugliness invites ugliness. If we are nice to LIFE and nature, LIFE and nature will be nice to us, but if we bring harm to LIFE and nature, LIFE and the nature will naturally bring harm to us. "Divine punishments, though slow, are always sure." "Misery and happiness have no doors - if either comes, one brings it upon themself." If we carry out the devil’s deeds, we will become devils and if we act like beasts, we will become beasts, but if we follow the example of Buddha, then we will attain Buddhahood. “When you approach the mountain you will learn the twitter of birds; when you approach the water you will understand the freely swimming fish.” Birds of a feather flock together and like begets like. The Greatest Creator has bestowed certain free consciousness upon us. We make the choices of what to do and what not to do. All of us are responsible for our choices. Reality is the portrayal of various free consciousnesses of LIFE. We have neither heaven, the earth, society, nor others to blame. If something seems wrong, it is neither with the universe nor the world, but with you. If you do not understand this, then your Life is confused. If you do understand this, then your Life is one that is as clear as crystal. This is the Way of the Greatest Creator.
VII. Happiness, Joy, Freedom, and Blessing are the Themes of LIFE
Did the Greatest Creator create people to suffer? No, definitely not! Was it for them to fight and kill each other, contend for power, cheat on each other, conspire against each other, and to worry and be miserable? No, definitely not! The Greatest Creator created people to lead happy, joyful, free, and blessed lives.
We see the blue sky and white clouds, the blossoming of all kinds of flowers and birds twittering cheerfully. These are designed to please our minds and bodies. I guess the adults reading this have enjoyed physical love ? How does that feel? Wonderful, right? The Greatest Creator designed organs and senses to let us enjoy Life and LIFE. These facts prove eloquently that the Greatest Creator loves us. The Greatest Creator is compassionate and wants us to lead happy, joyful, free, and blessed lives. Therefore, happiness, joy, freedom, and blessings are the themes of LIFE. Any human activities should be carried out and preceded tightly around attaining these attributes for everyone.
Some people claim that they are not happy, joyous, free, or blessed. In fact, you asked for all your problems. For instance, perhaps you have a spouse who makes you feel unfree. Well, may I ask you why you should have married and found a spouse in the first place? Was that not your own choice? Did you not ask for it? Were you forced to do it by the Greatest Creator? The Greatest Creator has bestowed divine freedom upon you, but you voluntarily gave it up, so who is to blame?
We grow crops, engage in production or labour, make money, become officials, start businesses, etc. What are the ultimate the purposes? Do we grow crops for the sake of growing crops, work for the sake of working, and make money for the sake of making money? Definitely not, we do these things to achieve happy, joyful, free, and blessed lives, right? So, remember that these are the themes of LIFE. No matter what you do, regardless of your status, your identity, or your fame, as long as you possess them in your lifetime, you are on the Way of the Greatest Creator and your Life is a successful and rewarding one.
VIII. All is but a game
The universe is in the condition of joy. The purpose of the Greatest Creator, creating all these things is but a game. Everything is but a game. Only souls are real, but life is a game. One can not be too persistent on things and should not possess and occupy too much. Excessive persistence and too much possession and occupation will cause you to lose the true nature of LIFE and make the game turn into the pain of fighting and killing and turn a drama into a tragedy. It is not worthwhile. Therefore, Life is but a dream. All the four elements are void. We need to experience lives to the fullest and live them that way. Play the game as much as you like. Enjoy it to the fullest if it is fun but give it up if it is not. Why are you so serious and so persistent? Nothing is yours. The Life stage is just a game. What can you keep after death? Only the soul is real!
The eight points mentioned above are the main meanings of the Way of the Greatest Creator. If you comprehend, understand, and practice them, then you are on the Way of the Greatest Creator. If you do not comprehend, understand, or practice them, then you are away from the Way of the Greatest Creator.
