The Law of Gravitation of LIFE——Superior Self-Improvement (1)

 

Xuefeng

 

 

 

“Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.”

 

The motion and direction of any object are the effect of gravitational force. It is hard for any object to break free without resisting to the gravitation that being bounded or constrained. The law is suitable to the material world as well as to the nonmaterial world.

 

Law of universal gravitation of LIFE can be expressed like this: Gravitation exists between (among) any destined LIFE in the universe. The magnitude of gravitation is directly proportional to how much they owed to each other and is inversely proportional to how much they do favor to each other.

 

That is to say: the more the debt, the greater the gravitational interactions will be; on the contrary, the less the favor, the more the reaction forces will be.

 

The main reason that the soul of many self-refining people can not reach the thousand-year world, the ten-thousand year world and Elysium world is the effect of the gravitation for LIFE on earth. This is the procedure of Tao, which can not be overcome only by consciousness.  

 

The main reason that many people who have been at the death’s corner come back to LIFE is due to the effect of gravitation of LIFE on earth.

 

Many people have already arrived at a beautiful place in their dreams, bur they wake up at last which is also the effect of gravitation.

 

No matter how far away from home, people overseas would miss their hometowns from time to time. A famous western proverb says: East, west, home is best. There is also a similar oriental proverb: Be it ever so humble, there is no place like home. Li Shimin, the first emperor of the Tang Dynasty, earnestly enjoined Xuanzang who was leaving for India: “Love and cherish your homeland rather than the temptations of the other.” Why is the hometown so attractive? Because we owe debt to our hometown. It is the mountains and rivers in our native land that cultivated us, and it is our families that favored us. This is the effect of gravitation of LIFE and nobody can resist it.  

 

Transmigration and reincarnation of LIFE will be made toward to the world with powerful gravitation, or the world which you were over-debt in your previous life. If you owe a debt to a person, you will be reincarnated as a person to serve him in your next life, or will be reincarnated as an ox, a horse, a dog, or a sheep. If you owe debts to animals, you will be reincarnated as an animal, or even a kind of vegetable to serve those animals.

 

Buddhists attach importance to predestination, but what is predestination? Predestination is the combination of debt and favor. In China, there are such sayings as “Though born a thousand miles apart, souls which are one shall meet.” and “A fate match across a thousand miles is drawn by a thread.” Here the meaning of the word “thread” is the gravitation of predestination, which is also a combination of debt and favor and is non-escapable for anyone.

 

In Chinese saying, “Husband and wife are foes”. In man’s world, marriage is just like bringing a protracted lawsuit against each other.

 

You would by no means leave this world unless you have paid the uttermost debts. That’s why Jesus the Christ taught us whoever smites us on the right cheek; turn to him the other also. The Buddha Sakyamuni said in The Diamond Sutra that “Furthermore, Subhūti, if there is a good son or good daughter who memorizes and recites this scripture, but is belittled by others; it is because this person committed crimes in a prior life which resulted in negative rebirths. Through enduring the disparagement of others in the present life, the bad karma from the prior lives can be removed, and one can attain peerless perfect enlightenment.” Actually, you are blessed if someone reviles or persecutes you, and it’s one of the most effective ways to pay your debt. Therefore, the starting point for your advanced self-refine should be that you are brave enough to accept being reviled or persecuted without any resentment or revenge idea in your mind; you have to be willing to accept all the sufferings. You should be absolutely obedient to your parents, patient to your brothers and sisters, and more yielding to your spouse. You should also your devote heart and soul to the education of your children without expecting return.   

 

Jesus told us that a man’s foes should be those of his own household. We owe to our families and this gravitation will attract us back to the Mortal World. Thus, our families are the biggest factor preventing us from entering Heaven. Goodness and loving-kindness follow us all the days of our life, so we have to go back to the Mortal World to repay them. Therefore, any advantage or benefit we got in the Mortal World is just like a net of gravitation which restricts us from entering Heaven.

 

Jesus the Christ taught us: “For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his LIFE shall lose it: and he that loseth his LIFE for my sake shall find it.”

 

“Verily I say unto you, there is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God's sake,who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life ever lasting.

 

Jesus’ words are exactly the truth. What we should abandon everything we possess in the Mortal World. But how? The only way is to experience the toughest hardship, the most miserable suffering, and bear the most painful torment. In order to repay those kindnesses, everything we do should like that of the cows- they eat grass but produce milk. We should be like candles—as long as we are alive, we will flame ourselves to pay back the debt we owed in previous LIFE.

 

Jesus told us one more time, for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

 

But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven.

 

Buddha also preached to us that we should do our best to give alms and accumulate merits constantly. In this way, the fruit of its reward will be unconceivable.

 

We will understand the law of universal gravitation of LIFE as long as we enter into the world of nonmaterial. Some people have dreamed of flying in very beautiful spaces, which shows small magnitude of gravitational force from the Mortal World; while some other people have never experienced flying in their dreams, some even have not dreamed a colorful dream in their life, which shows big magnitude of gravitational force from the man’s world.

 

Although Newton’s three laws of motion are descriptions about the law of the material world, it is suitable for the world of nonmaterial, and inspirations may also be reached from this. In addition, we can understand this principle from the case of the three cosmic velocities.  

 

The launch of a satellite must meet the requirement for the initial velocity; otherwise it is impossible to rotate around the earth. The initial or circular cosmic velocity is 7.9 km / sec; the second or escape velocity is 11.2 km/sec and then the satellite can escape from the gravitation of the earth and make rotation with other planets of the solar system around the sun; the last one is the third velocity, and the spacecraft at this speed is able to escape from the gravitation of the solar system and make rotation out of the solar system.

 

The thousand-year world, the ten-thousand-year world and the Elysium world that I had described are just like the levels of the three cosmic velocities. The first cosmic velocity is required for the travel to the thousand-year world, the second cosmic velocity is required for the travel to the ten-thousand world, and the third cosmic velocity is required for the travel to the Elysium world. It is impossible to reach the above three worlds unless the requirements for the minimum speed is achieved. Of course, this is a metaphor, but the theory is similar.   

 

Pay your debt! Free yourself from the shackle of the gravitation of LIFE in lower space! Pay the uttermost farthing we owed to in lower space! The best way to pay our debts is to accumulate merits and give unconditionally. Do you know why I said that the best self-refine is to construct Lifechanyuan? The reason is that we are initiating an era of Lifechanyuan for human kind, and this era will benefit human kind, animals and plants, rivers, lakes, the sea and the sky. We are culminating our greatest merits, which is sufficient to offset what we have owed to all forms of LIFE on earth for thousands of years, including what we owe to our families. Why should we hold in awe and veneration to LIFE and nature? This is just the answer.

 

Understanding these principles, we feel sweet even enduring hardship and tiredness. The enjoyment should be given priority to others, and the hardship and tiredness should be left for ourselves. “One should set up sublime personality, work hard to do the ordinary things and always the first to endure the hardship and the last too enjoy comforts.” In this way, we can farthest inflame ourselves.

 

Please don’t return hurt for hurt and eye for eye. On the contrary, please give them a blessing.  

 

The law of universal gravitation of LIFE tells us that, the magnitude of gravitation is direct proportional to what we owed and inversely proportional to what we are favored. The more the owed, the greater the magnitude of gravitational interactions will be, and the more difficult in leaving for Heaven; on the contrary, the more the favor, the less the magnitude of gravitational force, and the easier leaving for Heaven. When we face our imminent death, we would rest in peace if we are free of concerns and debts. Otherwise we will have to turn over in our graves with restless soul.

 

Please do not accept favors readily. It will be your debt once you accept it. Those favors relief other people but you will be shackled.

 

Please do not kill animals at will. In this way, that animal is freed but you will be shackled.

 

Please try to be a vegetarian as far as possible. Animals are LIFE too. What is owed to the animals must be repaid at last.

 

What is gained must be correspond with what is paid, and any excess is unnecessary because it means debt for you.  

 

I’m not able to guide everything. You should get to know the principles first and then put to practice.
