800 Values for New Era Human Being (Third Edition)
December 01 2017
二零一八年是持续一千年的新时代元年，人类新时代从二零一八年一月一日开始，前三十年是净化淘汰期，人类要进行一次大净化，主要是心灵的净化， 不适合新时代需要的意识要被淘汰，接下来的十年是调整期，人类传统的生产和 生活模式将被崭新的模式取代；此后，人类就进入了万教归一、天下大同、风调雨顺、人人开心快乐自由幸福的时期，直到三零一七年年底结束。
A new era for humankind has begun on New Year’s day of 2018 which will last for a millenium. The first thirty years will be a time for soul purification and the elimination of outdated consciousnesses. A large- scale purification will be necessary for humanity, mainly soul purification. Those consciousnesses which are not suitable for the needs of the new era will be eliminated. The following ten years will be the transition period – the traditional production and life modes will be replaced by new models. After that, we will enter a harmonious era when all religions, beliefs, schools of thought will unite as one, favorable weather will prevail throughout the year, and everyone will enjoy happy, joyous, free, and blessed lives. This new era will last till the end of the year 3017.
Humanity will soon enter the Lifechanyuan Era; the thousand-year new era is unveiling. The “800 Values for New Era Humans” reflects the essence of human wisdom; it not only points out the direction for human development, but also indicates the detailed ways to sublimate everyone’s LIFE. These values are grace bestowed by the Greatest Creator; they are the precious teachings of Gods, Buddhas, Celestial beings, and saints; the result of painstaking efforts made by ancient saints and sages, and reflect beautiful visions that humans have been dreaming of for ages.
宇宙中有二十个平行世界，有三十六维空间，每一个生命有无限的发展空间， 人类所在的地球叫人间，人间是高低层生命往返的中转站，也是神魔佛怪仙妖人 兽交战争夺的战场，光怪陆离五花八门争杀夺抢苦难重重是人间常态，生于人间， 每一个人都要经受心灵的冶炼和精神的痛苦，而最终牛进牛棚猪进猪圈仙入仙境佛去佛土。
There are twenty (20) parallel worlds and thirty-six (36) dimensional spaces in the universe and every LIFE has an infinite space in which to develop. The Earth where humans live is called the Human World. It is the transfer station for LIVES from higher and lower spaces and the battlefield of Gods, demons, Buddhas, monsters, Celestial beings, evil spirits, animals, and humans. It is normal in the Human World to see all kinds of bizarre and motley disputes and sufferings. Everyone born in the Human World has to undergo a smelting of their heart and pain of their spirit. Eventually, cattle will go to their sheds, pigs will go to their pens, Celestial beings will go to their fairyland, and Buddhas will go to their pure land.
为新时代的到来我们已经做好了理论和实践上的准备工作，这套系统的理论 就是《禅院文集》和《雪峰文集》，这套系统的实践就是生命禅院在中国大陆实 行了近八年的第二家园生产和生活模式，《新时代人类八百理念》第三版是《禅院文集》和《雪峰文集》的高度概括和浓缩，是生命禅院理论的精华所在，这也是新时代人人需 要明白的基本道理。
To welcome the new era, we have already made preparations in both theory and practice: the systemetic theories are Chanyuan Corpus and Xuefeng Corpus, and the systemetic practice is the production and life mode of the Second Home that Lifechanyuan has developed in China over the last eight years. The third edition of the “800 Values for New Era Humans” is a highly summarized and consolidated version of Chanyuan Corpus and Xuefeng Corpus; it contains the essence of Lifechanyuan Values and includes the basic principles for everyone in the new era to understand and follow.
人类的历史是苦难的历史，充满了战争、动乱、饥饿、痛苦、焦虑、忧愁、 恐惧，这是由各民族不健康的文化和带病毒的生产和生活秩序造成的，现在需要 拨乱反正重塑文化和秩序。我是俄罗斯火星人波力斯卡所言的在中国西部诞生 的“伟大的指导灵”，我将指导人类进入持续一千年的美好时代，结束人类苦难 的历史，让人类从此开始崭新的幸福生活。
The history of mankind is one of suffering; it is full of wars, unrest, hunger, pain, anxiety, sadness, and fear. This is caused by the unhealthy cultures of all nations and their viral production and life order. Now we need to bring order out of chaos and remold cultures and orders. I am the “Great Spiritual Guide” who was born in western China and identified by Boriska Kipriyanovich in Russia, the boy from Mars, and I have come to guide people into a beautiful era which will last for one-thousand years; it will end the history of suffering, and let humans live in a new and happy world.

Those who read it shall cherish it deeply, contemplate it carefully, take it seriously, brew it fully, and practice it actively. If you do so, you will see how right it is and how valuable it becomes over time. Its value is far from mundane and will bring unbelievable returns.

May you begin a brand new LIFE journey!
May peace and joy be with you!
Open the windows, the sunlight and fresh air will come in.
Take a broad view, you will see the faraway mountains fresh and green. Stay and study in Lifechanyuan; a new LIFE will begin.
Your spirituality will grow and your thinking will transcend that arises from human nature and ethics.
Revere the Greatest Creator, revere LIFE, revere nature, and take the Way of the Greatest Creator.
Let everyone live well: the aged, the children, the widowed, the orphans, the disabled; not only ordinary people, but presidents as well; not only the rich, but prisoners as well, even livestock, domestic fowl, and wild animals.
Three quarters of all criminals are not inherently criminal, but are forced into their situations by unhealthy cultures and social systems which have been established by humanity.
What is the best state for human survival? The core is simply this: take the way of the Greatest Creator and establish a government that functions “without interfering with the natural rules”. The more that governments manage and care, the worse human conditions become.
The more laws and regulations there are, the more problems will arise, especially the stronger the repression of human nature is, the stronger the restraints of one’s subjective initiative and creativity will be. It is as if to tie up people’s hands and feet with numerous ropes, and then shout to them: Hurry up! Move!
Closure leads to ignorance and backwardness, and rigidity and extinction as well, for a person, an ethnic group, and a country too.
The Earth belongs to all humanity. People should be allowed to flow freely throughout the world and not be restricted in the name of countries.
A global government should be established to coordinate global affairs.
Democracy is the pursuit of mediocrity. The “Superman Philosophy” should be implemented, which means whoever is in charge should have the final say, and bear all consequences.
Today’s real problems cannot be solved from historical experiences, but only with open and creative thinking.
Those who judge new things with traditional values are reactionaries
reluctant to make progress.
The judgement of right and wrong should be based upon these four essential elements: fact, science, logic, and spiritual perception. It should not be based upon the words of the ancients.
Meritorious people are prone to be the biggest obstacle to advancement.
There is nothing good about mysterious and spooky things; all furtive and sneaky things are bad.
The western way of managing state affairs according to laws is so inexorable, while the oriental way of ruling states by men is so complicated, that neither method is ideal. States need to be ruled in compliance with Tao.
Putting all affairs into the public domain is the best solution to all problems.
18. 哪些程序属于不良程序？凡难以获得开心、快乐、自由、幸福的生 活，总是让人焦虑、痛苦、烦恼、忧愁、恐惧、担忧的程序就是不良程序
What are bad programs? All of the ones that prevent people from leading happy, joyous, free, and blessed lives, but make them feel anxious, miserable, annoyed, dreaded, and worried.
Mankind is facing multiple crises, and the most important one is the crisis of the soul.
What money can buy is not precious, but what money cannot buy are treasures.
Preaching alone cannot accomplish a goal; it also needs to be completed by a corresponding program.
People fall into five categories:
• Ignorant people are driven by instincts
• Laities are driven by desires
• Mortals are driven by emotions
• Sages are driven by rationality
• Saints are driven by spiritual senses; they are Celestials
Man has six senses: vision, hearing, smell, taste, touch and spiritual sense.
The sum of positive and negative energy in the universe always equals zero; therefore, what everyone pays is always equal to what they gain.
Life is a short journey of LIFE in the human world.
All the preaching and orders that make people happy, joyous, free, and blessed are moral, all of those that prevent them are immoral.
We should pursue three great treasures in life:
1. Soul wealth
2. Spiritual wealth
3. Material wealth
Soul wealth is the most important and should be pursued first, then comes spiritual wealth, and material wealth is the third. None of these three great treasures are dispensable and a life without any one of them will be imperfect.
People live to pursue a happy, joyful, free and blessed life. All activities of a person or the whole of humanity should be centered on this goal. If we have ignored this goal of the existence of life, we would be putting the cart before the horse, whether it is studying for a doctorate’s degree, marrying to create a family, establishing a company, pursuing an official career for more money, or self-cultivation. Pursue happiness, joy, and freedom and fully enjoy them along the journey of one’s life, hence love life and LIFE, love nature, and feel grateful - this is the moral of being a man and also the primary value and purpose of life.
29. 人生的最高境界是: 博览群书、胸怀世界、起沉疴、挽狂澜、为民造福，把地球建成世界各民族和谐共处的乐园。生命的最高境界是: 修行修炼，度尽天下苍生；成仙成佛，成就无上正觉。
The highest realm of life is to read extensively, have the world in one’s mind, resolve malpractice issues which have endangered society for an extended time, make vigorous efforts to improve situations, benefit people, and build the Earth into a paradise where all people will live harmoniously with each other. The highest realm of LIFE is to self- improve and self-refine, release souls of people from purgatory, become a Celestial Being or achieve Buddhahood, and realize Supreme Authentic Wisdom.
The easiest habit to form and the easiest to ignore, but the most harmful to life and LIFE is the habit of getting used to accepting favor and forgetting to feel gratitude.
31. 越容易获得的越珍贵。我们需要高度地清醒，凡是轻易地来到身边 的，都是珍贵的。我们不能认为轻易获得的就没有多大价值，相反，最容易获得的是最珍贵的，应该把这看作是上苍的恩赐，也应当把这个道理看作是人生宝典。
All that is most easily obtained is the most precious. We must be very clear-headed that what comes easily is very precious. We should not think that what we have gained easily is of little value. Rather, that which is most readily available is the most precious. We should regard them as favors from the Greatest Creator and we should take this principle as a valuable lesson of life.
32. 人生的八大天机：一、付出越多 收获越多；二、心灵越丑 痛苦越多
；三、结构越美 相貌越美；四、话语越多 损伤越重；五、心灵越美 未来越美； 六、拥有越多 烦恼越多；七、我执越强 离道越远；八、越走捷径路途越远。
The eight (8) secrets of life are:
1. The more one pays, the more they gain.
2. The uglier one’s soul is, the more painful they feel.
3. The more perfect one’s LIFE structure is, the more beautiful their appearance will be.
4. The more words one says, the greater their loss will be.
5. The more beautiful one’s soul is, the brighter their future will be.
6. The more one possesses, the more trouble they will have.
7. The stronger one's ego is, the further they are from Tao.
8. The more shortcuts one pursues, the longer their journey will be.
33. 人生八大玄机，一.特危时刻求上帝；二.说“不”可免灾祸；三.感觉比智慧更可靠；四.捕捉第一次信息刺激；五.忏悔可消因果；六.恍兮惚兮中得真情真道；七.空灵秀奇妙无穷；八.常读无字天书即可与上帝直接对 话。
The eight (8) mysteries of life are:
1. Ask the Greatest Creator for help at critical moments.
2. Say “No!” to negative and pessimistic thoughts coming from one’s mind to avoid disasters.
3. Sensation is more reliable than wisdom.
4. Capture stimulation from information that is offered for the first time.
5. Confession can release karma.
6. Obtain truth and Tao from the evasive and elusive.
7. Enter the spiritual pure land and unite with Tao.
8. By reading the “books without words” (the natural and social phenomena in the human world) often, you can converse with the Greatest Creator directly.
The Greatest Creator is the primary productive force.
Live for happiness, joy, and freedom, but not for “doctrine”, “truth”, nation, political party, organization, religion, or family.
The eighteen causes of life’s suffering are:
1. Incorrect values and outlook on life, views on LIFE and the universe
6. Complaining and grumbling
8. Excessive ambition for victory and struggle due to the desire to excel over others
9. Arrogance and insolence
10. Dependence on others
11. Infatuated and poisoned love
12. Possession and occupation
13. Contention for fame and gain
15. Ambition to transform and control other people
16. Deviation from the law of nature
17. Violation of laws and disciplines
18. Consciousness of marriage, family, nationality, state, political party, religion, and organization
The present condition of human beings is caused by humanity’s past, and the present condition of any individual is caused by their past. Tao is just, so do not complain to heaven and earth, nor to society, other people, or the government.
To create happiness for all humanity and each individual, we must firstly rely on the Greatest Creator, and secondly rely on ourselves.
The purpose of creation is for the created to please and serve its creator. It was we who created technology, so its purpose is to please and serve us. It was the will of the Greatest Creator that created us and so our purpose is to please and serve the Greatest Creator.
● From God’s perspective, humans are ignorant
● From Buddha’s perspective, humans are evil
● From Celestial Beings’ perspective, humans are short-sighted and stupid
● From mankind’s own perspective, humans are both good and evil but wise
● From animals’ perspective, humans are inconceivable and horrible
● From plants’ perspective, humans are wonderful and great
Humanity’s suffering comes from humanity itself. Every individual’s suffering comes from themselves. The functioning of Tao abides by rigorous logic and order. The equity and impartiality of the Greatest Creator embodies in the functioning of Tao. If we cannot realize this, the suffering will never end, and the vicious cycle will continue forever.
The most important thing in life is not to try one’s best to possess material wealth but to manage to change one’s way of thinking.
Firm faith in the Greatest Creator, believing in Karma, and putting our best into everything we do are the three magic weapons to achieve carefree lives.
Time and energy are the diamonds of life which should be inlaid on the crown. Time and energy should be spent on the places and causes that can best embody the value of life.
Life is a journey; regardless of how many reincarnations we undergo, if we lose our memory each time, then we still have only one LIFE. Even if we live many thousands of lives in the human world, we will not know our past and future ones and they have absolutely no meaning or relations to us. Only people who can clearly understand their past and see their future are living in reasonable ways and only such people can turn tragedy into comedy, move from the realm of destiny to that of freedom, and fully enjoy the delicacies during their life journeys and appreciate their beauty.
The nature of the world is illusion. Life was originally an illusion. The question is how long the illusion may last. If we can survive for a thousand years, ten thousand years, or a hundred million years in the illusion, then the illusion will be meaningful.
Be people-oriented, not doctrine-oriented or system-oriented.
Perfect human nature should meet these eight conditions:
1. Revere the Greatest Creator, respect Gods, Buddhas, and respect other people.
2. Have no ambition for victory and no desire to fight for superiority.
3. Love nature.
4. Be modest, trustworthy, and honest.
5. Be sympathetic and compassionate.
6. Be able to adjust yourself and remain calm no matter whether you are in prosperity or adversity.
7. Conform to the laws of nature and do not seek eminence.
8. Love LIFE and love laboring.
A life without direction is blind and a life without values is perplexing. The affliction and misfortune of life lie mainly in the lack of direction and values of life.
Life is like this: You become either like the sun or like a reflective material. If neither happens, your life would be completely in the dark, and eventually like a pile of rotten garbage or a dirty and dark route.
Everything is but a game and only LIFE is true and exists forever. Reality is like a game; those who are obsessed with it are muddleheaded; those who are happy and pleasant in the game have an awakened consciousness. Attempting to own the reality is like a dream of an idiot, only with a game-playing attitude can people not miss their life.
Nothing is of an extraordinary or very important matter to life. Only LIFE is important enough to be maintained and cherished the most. Life is limited but LIFE is boundless. Everything in life should be centered on LIFE, which is the core theme of life.
The universe is holographic and everyone intrinsically possesses the natures of Gods, Buddhas, Celestial beings, Humans, animals, and matter; due to the differences of the ages in which they live, family environment, education, self-motivation, and other variables, some people eventually achieve glorious, premium-quality lives while others end up living defective ones.
A great wish can induce a great life, and a great wish has an incredible effect on life. All who have achieved great results are people with great wishes. Without great wishes, life is like duckweed that drifts with the tides. Without great wishes it is impossible to scale the peaks of life and LIFE.
55. 人，只要不清楚自己死亡后的情景；活着，不论活得高贵还是卑贱；其实， 都是在做垂死前的挣扎。
People, as long as they do not know what will happen after their death, actually remain in a death-bed struggle, no matter if they lead a noble life or a humble one.
There are eight “miracle programs” in the human body. The operation of a human body is a program, in which eight miracle subprograms are embedded.
2. Being rescued
4. Self-healing (releasing self-healing magical chemicals)
5. Magic power and art
6. Going crazy
7. Being possessed by evil spirits
8. In bliss
When conditions are ripe, these eight (8) programs will automatically start up and operate.
Life cannot lack belief, for a life without belief is contradictory and confusing. It will be a life which has neither direction nor prospect, and it is doomed to be a tragedy.
If people want to benefit others, they must first live well themselves, while if people want to do evil, they can live for others first!
People’s short life decides their LIFE futures. Every one of our words, actions, ideas, and intentions shape our futures. Our merits and sins are recorded justly every moment of every day and night. What we follow and where we go are entirely our own choices.
The most urgent things in life are to transform our LIFE’s nonmaterial structure and let it evolve towards higher LIFE spaces, and to sublimate our personality and perfect our spiritual nature. None of us knows what will happen tomorrow, but one certain thing is that our LIFE structure will determine our LIFE future.
Favor is not debt, but when you are desperate to pay a favor back, you may have no choice but to sell what you depend on. To avoid such a dilemma, do not owe others any favors.
Everyone has unlimited potential, but the main reason for not giving play to that potential is not because we are born stupid or have insufficient mental skills, but because we never find our best life track to follow from start to finish.
One heavy blow can destroy a person and render them powerless and incapable of recovery, however it is often the impact of seemingly insignificant small-load energies that become the main culprits in destroying lives.
Observing the numerous people on the street who are busy coming and going, back and forth, we will actually find only “two people”, one is pursuing fame, and the other is pursuing wealth. It is normal for the masses to pursue fame and wealth, however, if we are unable to keep a sober mind, but rather join the ranks of pursuing fame and wealth, we are putting our carts in front of our horses, and delaying our precious lives.
Life is so short that big businesses should be chosen over small ones. Everyone has the capital to take on a big project, and the capital is – love.
Life is like a play, no matter how short or long nor whether it gains or loses or succeeds or fails. As one play rises, another falls, rising here and subsiding there; achieving prosperity in the human world might result in a fall in the kingdom of heaven.
Everything has already been doomed. Facing numerous and complicated life issues, we have only one way to deal with them: keep calm to handle all naturally occurring events.
There is no doubt that humans have free will. It is precisely this free will that causes the hesitation, trouble, agony, fear, and sadness in life.
One of the guarantees of a happy life is to understand and know yourself. Without understanding and knowing ourselves, there will be a series of troubles and pain in life. People are used to attributing all the troubles and pain to outside causes and to other people, but never to themselves.
Question: Who writes the script of our life and arranges the track of our LIFE?
Answer: It is we, ourselves, us. Question: Who is the director? Answer: It is the program.
The shrewd person only cares about immediate benefit; the wise one plans for the future.
People play all kinds of tricks to hook fish and Satan does the same to hook people; fish cannot see the people behind their traps and people cannot not see Satan behind his traps.
Man is absolutely not the result of random evolution, but has been created by angels according to the will of the Greatest Creator.
There are no wronged lives or souls in the universe, and here are reasons why:
1. The Greatest Creator is equitable and never treats anyone unjustly.
2. The operation of Tao is meticulous and accurate, “Divine punishments, though slow, are always sure, with big meshes yet letting nothing slip through”.
3. Punishments and rewards are meted out accurately by Karma; “weal and woe are not predestined, you cause them yourself ”.
4. Reality is the projection of one’s own consciousness.
5. Understand that what we are receiving in this life is the result of what we have done in previous lives and that what we are doing now will decide what we will receive in future lives.
6. The Law of Attraction reveals that those with the same frequency will resonate with each other, "birds of a feather flock together", those with the same ideas will be attracted to each other, and those in the same boat will share their weal and woe.
7. Minds are the most important of the Three Realms, and consciousness is the most important of all rules.
8. the sum of negative and positive energy always equal zero, the losses and gains remain in balance, and you will always gain something when you lose something but lose something when you gain something.
Intelligence is blinded by benefit; minds are blinded by intelligence; our nature is blinded by our minds.
Do not offer help if someone does not ask for it, but help at the first moment he does.
Dharma has no set rules, non-dharma is dharma; form has no set shape, non-form is form.
Keep the core principle but change the others according to the situation.
Low wisdom is characterized by rashness; medium wisdom by competition; great wisdom acts foolishly; and supreme wisdom is formless. Solve contradictions with formless wisdom, and dissolve all visible conflicts and contradictions with intangible thinking. Low wisdom is kept busy mapping out systems, medium wisdom is occupied with perfecting laws and regulations, great wisdom is preoccupied with spiritual civilization, and supreme wisdom roams freely and unrestrainedly in the spiritual world.
Little changes occur gradually but great changes happen instantaneously.
Quiet places are free from misfortune, but bustling places may breed disaster.
When you are on the wrong path, the faster you walk, the greater will be your losses to endure; When you are on the right path, you will have taken the best shortcut, even if you encounter temporary setbacks, frost and severe cold.
All theories and viewpoints are suitable for only particular spatiotemporal environments and are only applicable under specific conditions; as environments change, either time and space change or conditions change, such theories or viewpoints must not be applied blindly and mechanically.
Times are changing, ideas are changing, lifestyles are changing, and the way that husband and wife get along should also change. Change is the only constant in life.
Happiness always belongs to those who conform to the trends of the times and act according to changing circumstances. While affliction will always be visited upon those who stick to traditions without considering the changes or even fearing them.
Any day could be the last day of your life. So, get things done as best as you can and leave no regrets behind.
Thinking has these eight ladders:
1. Material thinking
2. Image thinking
3. Associative thinking
4. Illusive thinking
5. Visualized thinking
6. Taiji thinking
7. Non-form thinking
8. Holographic thinking
Wisdom is divided into these five levels in increasing order:
1. Human eyes wisdom
2. Deva eyes wisdom
3. Wisdom eyes wisdom
4. Dharma eyes wisdom
5. Buddha eyes wisdom
That which can be imagined in one’s mind basically has existence.
Nothing is ever impossible in the universe, but has only not yet been realized or transformed by thinking.
Tao, virtue, benevolence, righteousness, and courtesy: Having obtained Tao, take no account of virtue.
Having obtained virtue, take no account of benevolence.
Having obtained benevolence, take no account of righteousness. Having obtained righteousness, take no account of courtesy.
Lacking Tao, attach importance to virtue.
Lacking virtue, attach importance to benevolence.
Lacking benevolence, attach importance to righteousness. Lacking righteousness, attach importance to courtesy.
Form gives birth to mind, but mind can transcend over form.
Humans have three origins: the origin from the pyramid, the origin from the Garden of Eden, and the origin from the reincarnation of the dragon.
Negative, passive, and pessimistic words, moods, and consciousnesses will bring pain, misfortune, and disaster; being alive, one should remain positive, active, and optimistic.
The bewilderment of one’s self comes from the bewilderment of their consciousness; the bewilderment of life results from the disorder of one’s consciousness. Our suffering derives mainly from the suffering of our consciousness, and all our uncertainties result from our unclear consciousnesses— we do not know ourselves or what we really want.
It is only if we express ourselves clearly that the universe will better cooperate with us. If we do not understand ourselves clearly, the universe will be unable to cooperate with us. The Greatest Creator helps those who help themselves. Never expect help from immortals or emperors without your own effort.
The greater the energy, the less visible a thing will be; the smaller the energy, the more tangible it will be.
The three constituent elements of the universe are: consciousness, structure, and energy.
Everyone should beautify their soul garden by getting rid of the following poisonous weeds and barnyard grasses:
Jealousy, selfishness, anger, hatred, complaining, comparing, cursing, worrying, anxiety, fear, dishonesty, wickedness, ugliness, lies, sloppiness, hypocrisy, laziness, greed, avid possession, forced occupation, desire to excel over others, belligerence, exculpation, disputing, and other toxic weeds and barnyard grasses.

sincerity, kindness, virtue, love, faith, honesty, peace, diligence, bravery, unselfishness, devotion, service, care, tolerance, consideration, compassion, mercy, and other beautiful flowers and plants.
Affection, love and sex are precious gifts bestowed upon us by the Greatest Creator. We are supposed to bloom and fully enjoy their pleasures and sweetness.

A mind of comparison is a mind of wickedness.
Vanity is the cancer cell of life.
Complaining is a poisoned arrow.
Selfishness is the source of trouble and the primary pass to hell.

Rage is an emotional cyclone; those who are raging are the first one to get hurt.

Gratitude is the first element toward sublimating LIFE’s quality.
Selflessness is the pass to heaven.
Giving and dedicating are the best ways to accumulate treasures in heaven.
Money, power, position, fame, and beauty are the devil’s bait.
The more you possess, the more trouble you get.
Health, calmness, joy, contentment, and peace are rewards from the Greatest Creator.
Only when you possess nothing can you own everything.
As a human, honesty is the best policy.
Once the fundamentals are established, the proper way appears.
If one can achieve an integrity of body and soul through self-improving and self-refining, then real spirit will grow in them, great talent and virtue will appear from them.
Keeping one's faith is the first priority in life; breaking one’s word is a crime.
Being negative is like cutting one’s own and other people’s arteries to release blood.
Repentance is an effective way to purify one’s soul, it is also a good solution to help one eliminate negative karma and avoid bad consequences.
Praying has incredible supernatural power. Pray more when you feel that you are too trapped by your surroundings to realize your beautiful ideal.
Being cold is symptomatic of lacking vigor and vitality, and those who lack enthusiasm and passion cannot do great things.
Greed is a psychological disease.
Arrogance is a devil’s quality.
Stubbornness is a symbol of rigid thinking.
The truth can be found in neither debates nor arguments.
Cheating is a crime.
Suspicion is a kind of phenomenon of psychological perversion.
Resentment is poisoning yourself and others.
Cursing is a wizardry and the cursor will become a demon, so do not curse, no matter how angry you are.
Hate ruins the haters.
The most vulnerable to injury are the weakest and most defective parts.
Praising others shows the beauty and richness of one’s soul.
Belittling others shows the ugliness and thinness of one’s soul.
Humbleness is the beginning of progress, sublimation, and the bridge toward heaven.
Trust is “honey” and distrust is “a knife”.
As humans, we need to have some religious sentiment.
Being one’s natural self is their greatest beauty.
Do not judge others; be careful about conclusive words before they leave your mouth.
Say your own words, do your own thing, go your own road, and cultivate your own Way; do not bother with others or regard other people’s business.
Faith is truth; love is LIFE.
Forgiving and tolerating others will broaden our paths and living spaces.
Chase after the sun, and you will escape the darkness; chase after happiness, and you will escape trouble; chase after paradise, and you will escape this mortal world.
Those from whom ugly things emanate, prove themselves to be ugly.
If you escape from yourself and are afraid to face yourself, then you will suffer endless pain.
Love is a state of being, it is like the sun shining and flowers blooming.
Love does not possess specific objects; love is the blossoming of our most beautiful qualities.
Whoever lives for others is belittling and trampling their personalities and dignity.
Beware of those who say, “I do this for your own good”, as they could have selfish intentions and really do it for THEIR own good.
Criticizing each other causes misery and suffering, and shows that you are rigid and stubborn.
Egalitarianism is unfair; communism without belief in the Greatest Creator does not work.
We should have light in our eyes and love in our hearts; thoughts need to be kind and routine work needs to be diligent.
Quality decides function and the quality of a person decides their value and function in society.
Dignity depends on good character to maintain; power and wealth cannot build dignity.
It is easy to have good relationships with everyone if we do not ask any favor from them; I would not care about the price of wine if I did not drink it. The best way to resist something is: “Don’t use it! Ignore it!”.
Take things as they are, associate with others by following naturally come-and-go relations, act in accordance with one’s intrinsic nature, and take advantage of opportunities as they arise.
Only saints are qualified to guide others.
Always cherish and create your blessings instead of overconsuming and wasting them. Once your blessings run out, you will have a rough time.
Great oaks from small acorns grow; put more efforts into basic things.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Little things make big things happen.
What we have seen is where we are going. What have we seen?

There are no gates to fortune or misfortune; you cause both for yourself. The effects of good and evil are like shadows following forms.
Good will be rewarded with good and evil will be punished by evil.
Divine punishments, though slow, are always sure, with big meshes, yet letting nothing slip through.
The world is faultless; all faults lie within us.
Only gods can distinguish right from wrong; Tao judges our merits and demerits.
If you are sincere and genuine, then you will get what you want; if you have a worried and unsettled frame of mind, then you will get what you try to avoid.

Without enthusiasm and passion, one should never expect to taste the delicious in the world.
Those who maintain excellence in everything they do will eventually be rewarded generously; those who are careless and slack in everything will never see the light of the day.

Always concentrate on one thing; as long as you do one thing deeply, carefully, and thoroughly, you will get all that you need from it.

Thinking is a magical power. Magical power is the higher level of thinking information wave that shackles the lower level of thinking.
Our thinking is more or less confined by some higher thinking.
All regulations, concepts, ethics and behavioral rules, authoritative theories and sermons, religious regulations and rituals, scientific theories and methods, and exemplary models and habits are powers that constrain human thinking.
All methods are just convenient methods or timely methods, but not constant methods; once any cognition becomes fixed, it attends to one thing, loses all others, and becomes an obstacle to further thinking.
Implementing Lifechanyuan values in daily life and abiding by the community’s production and life procedures are the magic tools to ensure the long-term existence and continuous perfection of the new life mode for humans.

The law of universal gravitation of LIFE: there is mutual gravity among LIVES that are brought together by karma in the universe; the magnitude of this gravity is a direct ratio of the debt that each owes to the other but an inverse ratio to the amount of favor that each has done for the other.

Higher level LIVES have fewer conflicts with their surroundings; lower level LIVES have more conflicts with theirs.
The core element of the consciousness of higher LIVES is love; The higher their level of LIFE is, the higher the level of love in their consciousness is; the lower their level of LIFE is, the lower the level of love in theirs is.

LIFE has eight big secrets; to attain them, you must build your merits and virtues to exchange.
What does not exist in consciousness does not exist in LIFE; therefore, make the best use of your time to expand your space of LIFE. Be neither nostalgic for things which appeared briefly nor for the human world; they are all just flashes in the pan. Try your best to be familiar with the place for which you yearn and be an awakened person.
The nature of LIFE is the soul; the nature of soul is consciousness, so consciousness is LIFE.

380. 我们身体上有的，要充分使用; 不用，是对造物主的反叛。我们身体上没有的，不要企求; 若企求，那就是“行邪道”。
We must make full use of our bodies; if we do not, we will be rebelling against the Greatest Creator; we would be “practicing evil ways” if we prayed for what our bodies do not have.
“Seeds take roots where they land”; wherever you live, treat that place as your home, protect its environment, and create beauty.
Freedom is supreme and priceless; it is the symbol of LIFE in heaven; the degree of freedom shows the level of a LIFE; the greater a LIFE’s degree of freedom is, the closer they are to heaven; the less a LIFE’s degree of freedom is, the closer they are to hell.
Individuals and groups cause their own lack of freedom; if one within an unfree group wants freedom, the only thing to do is - ESCAPE! Escape to a free place, if you cannot find a free place on Earth, then flee to heaven.
Do not sympathize for or commiserate with the weak, for they are parasites; once you are entangled with the weak, they will suck off your blood and your whole life will turn to misery. Who are the weak? The debilitated, disabled, ill, and poor are NOT, but those who constantly rob your energy are.
When many people's consciousnesses resonate, they live in the same world; heaven and hell are the real worlds created by the LIVES whose consciousnesses resonate; everything on Earth is created together by the “people” who are here.
All changes in the universe have reasons, all changes of nature are the results of quantitative changes; there will be no qualitative leaps without the accumulation of quantitative changes: when quantitative changes reach their limit, they will inevitably cause qualitative leaps.
As long as we treat everyone and everything objectively and fairly, then we will not waste time on hatred and revenge, but only concentrate on our own futures of sublimating ourselves.
Different faiths lead to different mental states and psychological activities, which lead to different words and actions, which lead to different results and ways of life; faith is the navigator of life, different faiths make different lives; therefore, faith determines lives.
Arrogance comes from ignorance, and it is the touchstone of testing the richness of one’s inner beauty.
Character is the accumulation of characteristics that one inherits from their previous LIVES; character is definitely not inherited from one’s biological parents. Character will determine one’s overall developmental direction; it is one’s original nature which is the potential energy of consciousness one can barely handle or control by themself, that’s why we often hear the saying "a leopard cannot change its spots". Character decides what kind of life one will achieve.
The more marvelous a method is, the easier it is to practice; tricks and shortcuts are ultimately not simple and easy ways to do things.
If you do not surrender your human mind, then you will not achieve the nature of a Celestial being; if you do not abandon the human world, then you cannot ascend to the fairyland above.
If you do not close a door, then another nine will not open to you; if you remain wedded to one love, then you will not be able to embrace another truer love; if you do not leave your heavy baggage, then you will not be able to walk farther; if you do not remove your blinders of conventional thinking, then you will not see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Die, yesterday's me; embrace today's me! Die, today's me; embrace tomorrow's me!
Do what you want without breaking the rules; enjoy a carefree life without grumpiness.
Are there any unfair phenomena in human society? No, not at all! Everything is a fair adjudication of the mechanism of cause and effect; everything is the fairest arrangement with the rewards and punishments of Tao.
Everyone has their own LIFE trajectory, everything is destined; it might seem on the surface that we have been wronged, but that appearance might have actually resulted from our own imperceptible thoughts and behaviors
When death comes, we should die clearly and leave no regrets to the last moment; we should never come to this world in vain; while we are still alive, we must distinguish the priorities of life：What is important and what is unimportant; otherwise it will be too late to feel regret!
399. 不要留恋过去的一切，与其留恋过去，不如开拓未来，宇宙无边无际，时空无穷无尽，生命的未来没有终点，生命永远在旅途中，前方的景色我们闻所未闻见所未见; 不管当下我们处在何等美妙的环境中，我们依然需要去开辟处女地，去开拓新的道路，进入新的境界。因为快乐就在创造中，不在享受中；幸福就在奉献中，不在获得中；自由就在不断地放弃中，不在守旧守成中。
Do not be nostalgic, open up to your future rather than dwelling upon your past; the universe is boundless, time and space are endless; the future of LIFE is endless, LIFE is always on its journey. The scenery ahead is unknown and unprecedented for us; regardless of how wonderful our current environment might be, we still need to open up new territories, to explore new ways, to enter the new realms. Joy lies in creating, not in languishing in material comfort; happiness lies in devoting, not in acquiring; freedom lies in continually abandoning, not in sticking to old ways and achievements.
Once one stops marching forward, they will inevitably move toward dispiritedness and depravity; once unwilling to abandon all their possessions, one will inevitably slip towards selfishness and greed; once clinging to ancient ways and bygone values, one will never have the chance to see the incomparable new wonder and beauty.
The universe is an illusion and its size relates to our consciousness; the stronger the consciousness, the bigger the universe; the weaker the consciousness, the smaller the universe; the universe would not exist without consciousness.
The universe is the product of the consciousness of the Greatest Creator. The universe did not originate from the Big Bang; rather, it came into being because Wuji gave birth to Taiji and chaos evolved into holographic order.
The universe has eight (8) forces:
• The strong force
• The weak force
• The structural force
• The repulsive force
• The conscious force
• The spiritual force
The universe is made up of three elements:
404. 宇宙中有20个平行世界，人类生存的世界是xy世界，所谓的鬼魂生存的世界是-x-y世界，神佛生存的世界是xyz世界，妖魔生存的世界是-x- y-z世界，千年界在xy-z世界，万年界在x-y-z世界，仙岛群岛洲在xyz世界。
The universe includes twenty (20) parallel worlds,
• Humans live in the XY world
• Ghosts live in the -X-Y world
• Gods, Buddhas, and Super Celestial Beings live in the XYZ world
• Monsters and demons live in the -X-Y-Z world
• The Thousand-year World is in the XY-Z world
• The Ten-thousand-year World is in the X-Y-Z world
• The Celestial Islands Continent is in the XYZ world
The universe exists for LIFE and LIFE exists for the universe; when LIFE dies out, the universe will perish; when the universe ends, LIFE will be extinct.
The solar system was designed to serve humans on the Earth.
The moon did not come into being naturally, it was created specifically for LIFE on the Earth; apart from its other functions, the moon serves as a warehouse, mainly to store UFOs.
The UFOs that we occasionally see in the sky are not from outer space but from within the moon, which is a gigantic warehouse storing many “tools” that Super Celestial Beings once used, and UFOs are one kind of them. The moon has a gate which can be opened at any time and there is a huge “palace” beneath the mysterious Bermuda Triangle which Super Celestial Beings use as temporary lodgings on Earth. When such needs arise, Super Celestial Beings can exercise remote control of the UFOs within the moon at any time and use them to visit Earth.
● The atmosphere is the earth’s skin
● The ozonosphere is to protect LIFE on the Earth
● Water is the Earth’s blood
● Photosynthesis is the headspring of food for LIFE
● Symmetry in nature is a mysterious force
● The perfect scale is the Golden Ratio
● The brain is the epitome of the universe
● Genes are the sealed book of LIFE
● Conditioned reflexes are the protective mechanisms of LIFE
● Sexual pleasure is not only for the continuation of ancestral lines
● The beauty of nature is the masterpiece of the Greatest Creator
There is a negative cosmic velocity in the universe; namely, the speed of the nonmaterial, which is faster than that of light.
Everything in the universe moves in accordance with Tao. The spirits of all LIFE forms are connected to that of the Greatest Creator. Each thing and every phenomenon follow its own principles and laws. Whether it be the operation of celestial bodies or the action of an ant or a bee, everything is controlled by Tao. The universe is holographic, and a thought can spread across it within an instant.
The total energy of the universe is always zero, which enables its stable order.
The holographic phenomena means the universe is holographic. A holographic universe means that the universe is so expansive that there is no exterior and so small that there is no interior. Everything and all Phenomena are holographically interconnected, nothing is independent of anything else, and no phenomenon is independent of any other phenomena.
The unity of opposites is only the appearance of the universe, not the essence of it; the essence of the universe is a holographic-order entity. There are no opposites such as justice and injustice, good and evil, or beauty and ugliness within the holographic order.
There are grand universe and small universes. The boundless universe is called the Grand Universe and the bounded universes are called small universes. The Grand Universe is made up of a vast number of small universes. The universe in which humans live is a small universe, and it is called the Earth Universe.
416. 凡在时间范围内的所有物体，包括天体宇宙，都有一个起源，都有一个诞生的时间和发展的过程，宇宙也不例外。宇宙诞生之前为“无极”， “无极”的状态是：无外无内，无大无小，无边无际，无虚无实，没有时 间，没有空间，没有物质，没有精神，是一派清明，又是一片混沌，是一切的有，又是一切的无。
All objects within the scope of time, including celestial bodies, have an origin, a time of being born and a course of development. The universe is no exception. Before the birth of the universe, it was “Wuji”.
The state of Wuji is:
● The absence of large and small
● The absence of borders
● The absence of entity and non-entity
● The absence of time, space, substance, and spirit
● All is a state of clearness and brightness as well as chaos; all is a state of existence as well as nonexistence.
Chaos is a disorderly state, but holographic order is an orderly one; chaos was the state before the formation of the universe, while holographic order has been the state afterward; Chaos (Chinese 混沌） means mess, lack of order；in Chinese holographic order is written as浑沌, 浑 means wholeness and inseparable integrity, and Dun (沌) means a borderless and expansive state like the immense ocean. In the state of chaos, there is no heaven, no earth, no borders, no limits, no center, no yin or yang, and no middle way. In the state of holographic order, there is Taiji, the One in the unity of opposites, the two poles, and the middle way.
The law that maintains the zero sum of positive and negative energy is called the law of cause and effect.
The existence of natures is what causes the clear-layered, well- structured, multiform, and constantly changing wonder of LIFE and all natural phenomena. If everything were devoid of their natures, then the universe would return to its chaotic, primordial state of chaos.
The material world is the positive universe; the nonmaterial world is the negative universe. Non-material things are of the negative universe as they are non-physical, intangible, invisible, untouchable, inaudible, and cannot be sensed, measured, or perceived, yet influence the material world. The dream world is a type of negative universe; namely the nonmaterial world.
The positions of materials and non-materials and the spheres of their activities are called space. Space can be positive or negative; non- materials exist in negative space; materials exist in positive space.
Positive space is determined by the existence and distribution of materials and negative space is determined by the existence and distribution of non-materials.
Space can change an object’s shape and its rules of operation. Space includes natural spaces and thinking spaces. In different spaces, operation rules and the existence of LIFE and objects are different.
Changes of space can cause changes of one’s physical functions, thinking, and the survival state. One must change space if they want to change themself.
Nature gives us corresponding feedback to whatever information we enter; there are no coincidences in the universe, all phenomena must have their determining factors. All natural phenomena have causes which lead to inevitable results; this is the program and objective law which is not subject to the will of man.
Space can be compressed, expanded, and dissolved.
The passageways connecting the thirty-six dimensional spaces are called space tunnels.
Spaces are vitally important to people; a good space can bring people’s capabilities into full play and make them feel relaxed and happy, while a bad space will oppress human nature and limit their talents, reducing them to mentally and physically fatigued “prisoners”. Therefore, we should strive to create or enter good spaces and avoid creating or entering bad ones.
Time is the recorder of the state of material movement; time is born of movement; there would be no time without movement.
Time has eight (8) great characteristics:
1. Time is nonmaterial
2. Time can be negative or positive
3. Time is particular and universal
4. Time is a variable
5. Time pervades all material spaces
6. Time is both longitudinal and latitudinal
7. Time has different interpretations in different spaces
8. Time can be compressed, expanded, and dissolved
Time tunnels are dense time networks which are composed of positive and negative time and are widely distributed throughout the universe.
Time changes everything and everything exists within a specific time; to make an object exist eternally, you must make its time of existence eternal.
There is latitudinal time and space in the universe, but time does not exist in latitudinal time and space; in latitudinal time and space, one cannot feel the passage of time, but insofar as earth time is concerned, several seconds of latitudinal time and space can be several decades, centuries, or millennia.
Our physical bodies are in positive space, but our spiritual entities are in negative space.
To escape from the bondage of time and space, one must think whimsically, unconventionally, and act against norms.
Tao is the commonality of the universe, and the core of Tao is the Greatest Creator. Revering the Greatest Creator and following Tao is the perfect and harmonious integration of one’s individuality with their universal commonality. Only those who integrate their individuality perfectly and harmoniously with the commonality of the universe have sober minds and bright prospects. Those who abandon this general principle and direction cannot secure bright prospects no matter how intensely they engage in self-cultivation.
Nonmaterial is the reverse side of material and does not possess the characteristics of material; all material passes through the processes of birth, growth, decay, and death, but nonmaterial does not; everything in the nonmaterial world can miraculously transform in an instant. From the perspective of the ever-existing universe, everything is transient, illusory, and valueless. To obtain eternal existence, one must break away from the control of time; to do this, one must work hard to perfect the spiritual entity of their LIFE. When all conditions are ripe, success will follow; once you manage to break through the limitation of time, you will be able to enter latitudinal time and space as you like, feel relaxed and happy, and be overwhelmed by unparalleled beauty.
It is impossible to understand the nonmaterial world by means of science, intellect, facts, and logical reasoning, the only way to know it is to let one’s consciousness enter the nonmaterial world and be there to observe it just as we enter our dreams; it is only by entering into the nonmaterial world in person that we can understand it. There are two types of nonmaterial worlds, one is to be perceived from a longitudinal time tunnel and the other is to be perceived from a latitudinal space tunnel; this is to say that to learn about your past or future, you must enter a time tunnel; to know about other nonmaterial worlds existing at this moment, you must enter a space tunnel.
437. 如果我们看不到物质世界的一切，证明我们的肉眼出了问题，瞎 了，或闭了，或被蒙了；如果我们看不到反物质世界的一切，说明我们的灵眼出了问题，或是瞎了，或是闭了，或是被蒙了。
If we can not see anything in the material world, then our physical eyes have failed: they are covered, closed, or have become blind; if we can not see anything in the nonmaterial world, then our spiritual eyes have failed: they are covered, closed, or have become blind.
The sum of positive and negative energy in the universe is always zero, the total score of wins and losses is always zero, and behind the glory of every winner hides the bitterness and misery of a loser. Therefore, for the sake of other people’s happiness, we should only take what is necessary for us instead of having an insatiable greed for all benefits.
439. 宇宙八大辩证法：一、空即色，色即空；二、穷则反，终则始； 三、微则著，细则大；四、生死互根，阴盛阳衰；五、无则有，有则无；六、心灭性显，心生性隐；七、动静相宜，明晦相依；八、正反对称，比例制约。
The Universe has these eight (8) dialectics:
1. Form is emptiness; emptiness is form
2. When things are exhausted, they revive; when they end, they begin again
3. The hidden becomes clear and the smallest becomes big
4. Life and death are the root of each other; Yin flourishes and Yang declines
5. To own nothing is to have everything and to own everything is have nothing
6. Our nature emerges when our mind is silent; it subsides when the mind is active
7. Motion and stillness co-exist; brightness and darkness are interdependent
8. Positive and negative are symmetrical; development is constrained when the balance of any proportion is broken
Tao is the consciousness of the Greatest Creator and the blood of the universe; it is nature, the synthesis of all laws, and the general program that governs the operation, mutual generation, and restraints of everything in the universe.
Tao has these eight (8) characteristics:
1. in holographic order
2. Eternal reliability
3. Instantaneous detection and response
4. Lack of interior or exterior but transcendence over time and space
8. Illusory yet actual
The content of everything represented by Tao is expressed in forms; without form, Tao’s content would be difficult to materialize. Form is the embodiment of Tao, but is by no means Tao itself, just as a cell in a human body is the embodiment of that person, but is definitely neither him nor her.
Tao exists in everything; everything exists in Tao; Tao is the One. The vast universe has only one consciousness, that of the Greatest Creator, which is manifested through Tao.
The attributes of Tao have no contradictions; if one has conflicts in their minds or has conflicts with others, they are not in tune with Tao; if there are conflicts within a group, it is not in tune with Tao.
The operation of Tao begins with minor details, achieves in dribs and drabs, and consummates in both the profound and the subtle, but there is no trick to it.
Zen is the best approach through which one can become enlightened; any other approaches can be described by words, but only Zen can be carried out with soul. Having understood the truth of Zen, formal education is unnecessary because heaven, earth, and all other phenomena are “books”; we can read the “books without words” of heaven, earth, and all phenomena at any time, whether we are awake or asleep.
Note： Here Zen means the process of reading and observing the wordless book (every phenomenon of nature, society, and the whole universe), understanding it by thinking, verifying, and eventually getting the absolute truth of oneself and the universe, and obtain enlightenment.
One thing is eternal: from the remote past to the distant future, it has been committing itself silently. Its semblance can change at any time, but its essence always remains the same, in the past, the present, and the future; as long as we are willing to rely on it, we always can, and this is where we can entrust our LIVES— Tao. Tao is the embodiment of the consciousness, and the spirit of the Greatest Creator; by entrusting our LIVES to Tao, we are entrusting them to the care of the consciousness and spirit of the Greatest Creator; in one word, we must entrust our LIVES to the Greatest Creator.
Essences cannot be understood other than through their uses. This is a big mystery which simply suggests that the meanings of all essences are expressed by their “uses”. To allow one's essence to be understood, they must concentrate their efforts on their uses. It is only by expressing our uses that we can attain Tao because the values of everything lie in their uses and without them, their essences cannot be understood.
The values of things lie in their uses; the functions and the values of Tao are embodied completely in its uses. The greater one’s use is, the greater their value is, and all objects in the universe express their value through their use. As far as humans are concerned, the more uses one has, or the greater uses they have, the greater value they have, the richer intentions they will attain, and the more easily they will approach eternity. We cultivate ourselves by expanding our uses; the more useful we are, the better we do in cultivation.
Holographic order is the characteristic of Tao, chaos is the appearance of holographic order, and holographic order is the essence of chaos. Actually, 99.9999% of people see chaos, but only one in a million see a holographic order world. Jesus, Sakyamuni, and Lao Tzu are great because they understand this holographic order rather than just chaos. The perception of chaos is narrow-sensed, one-sided, local, and linear; the perception of holographic order is broad-sensed, comprehensive, integrated, and nonlinear.
To learn from Tao, one must learn from everything in nature, from the mirror, and from children; to achieve Tao, one must forget themself and faithfully reflect the truth and facts. Those who have achieved Tao are like mirrors which reflect everything truthfully, including the endlessly changing outside world; they do not distort facts or scenes. One who has no self but faithfully reflects the truth and the facts is one who has achieved Tao.
The pursuit of various techniques is a minor consideration, but the pursuit of Tao is a major one. It is easy to acquire and learn techniques but extremely difficult to achieve Tao. Do not fall into and get stuck within the traps of techniques because techniques are endless. The research for techniques cannot be completed in even a hundred thousand years, so let us go directly to the headstream - Tao.
It is difficult to reach heaven, but more difficult to understand oneself; it is difficult to pursue Tao, but more difficult to confront oneself truthfully.
One's chickens and dogs will not follow them to heaven by their having achieved Tao; one's friends and relatives will not become immortal because of their becoming immortal; everyone must complete their own path.
455. 我们的修炼要集中在悟道、求道、得道、行道上面，不要迷恋在 功、法、术、仪式上面，要注重内涵，不要注重外表和形式，修炼的核心是为了完善生命的反物质结构，而不是获得智慧和特异功能，我们要在思维上下工夫，要在意识的转换上下工夫，不要在打坐练功上下工夫。
Our self-refinement should be concentrated on the perception, pursuit, attainment, and practice of Tao, and we must never be infatuated with Gong, magic, techniques, or ceremonies. We should pay attention to inner qualities rather than to appearances and forms; the core of self- refinement is to perfect our nonmaterial structures of LIFE rather than to obtain wisdom and supernatural powers; we should work on our thinking and our transformation of consciousness instead of on meditation and practicing our skills.
The perception, pursuit, verification, attainment, and maintenance of Tao is the road to the sublimation of LIFE.
To perceive Tao means to understand the following principles by observing the endless variety of phenomena in the boundless universe:
• The laws and rules that govern the operation of the universe
• The origin of all things and phenomena
• The principles of the operation of LIFE
• The secrets and profound mysteries of the universe, of time and space, and of life and LIFE
The pursuit of Tao is to establish one’s own outlook on the world, LIFE, life, and values, on the basis of the perception of Tao.
The verification of Tao is to validate through one’s practices over and over again, whether the outlooks on the world, life, LIFE, and values are correct and conform to the laws and procedures of the evolution procedures of Tao.
The attainment of Tao means that one has understood the secrets and profound mysteries of the universe, time and space, and life and LIFE, and has established unshakable correct views on the world, life, LIFE, and values.
The maintenance of Tao means that one will self-improve, self-refine, and behave according to the views on the world, life, LIFE, and values that one has established, and will stick to their faith and belief no matter how the world may change, what great events may happen in the vicinity, whether they are in prosperity or in adversity, and regardless of how great a temptation with which they are faced. They will remain resilient and strong even after going through endless battering from hurricanes from every direction, and remain seated on the fishing boat, unaffected by stormy waves. Jesus’ teaching that, “one who has the greatest endurance will be saved”, is the core meaning of maintaining Tao.
A man of great virtue is one who follows the way of Tao. ”Tao” has no clear fixed entity. What does it look like? It is elusive and evasive, in which there are forms; elusive and evasive, in which there are entities; so profound and obscure, in which there is essence of energy. The essence of energy is really true, which is verifiable. Dating back to ancient times, its name can never be abolished, but the very beginning of all things can be observed according to it. How can I know the beginning of all things? Through Tao.
“10-9=Tao”! Tao has intricate layers of meanings, however when they are all reduced to their basics, they are simply the law, the order, and the One. For us, the meaning of “10-9” is the casting away of numerous and complicated matters in life and the concentration of all our efforts onto one thing: to thoroughly, intensively, and completely attend to one matter is to obtain everything from it that we need; that is to say, as long as we stick to the One, we will be in tune with Tao. Undivided attention, whole-hearted devotion, total commitment, and perseverance are the embodiments of “10-9”. As long as we are capable of this, there is nothing that we cannot achieve; rubbing ropes against wooden boards will cut into them and dripping water onto stones will wear them down; channels form when water flows, and melons' pedicles fall when their fruit ripens.
Who can change the evolution program that ruled by Tao? We should not attempt to do so. What we need to do is escape from the trappings of LIFE. It is impossible for those who cannot save themselves to save others; save yourselves first, then save others. Can the poverty-stricken offer financial help to others? Can the imprisoned help other prisoners to escape from their cells? Those who have fallen into a trap should try to escape from it on the conscious level first. As long as you are awake spiritually and have a sober mentally, you can escape from the trappings of LIFE, one step at a time.
Ultimate Tao cannot be pursued according to relationships; it has no favorites and it will not help you if you are poor and pathetic nor punish you if you are rich and powerful. The only measure of reward or punishment is to see whether or not you are following Tao. If you are, then you will be rewarded; if not, you will be punished.
The way to become a Celestial being lies in the following methods:
● Being free from the secular even while remaining in the secular world
● Being away from worldly affairs in your mind even when you must interact with them
● Doing your best to complete your duty to be free from cares and worries
● Remaining ordinary while transcending beyond the ordinary
Anyone who is always happy, joyous, and free is a Celestial.
To become a Celestial, one must sever all their worldly ties and foster new ones with other Celestial beings; it is hard to be a Celestial being while still being constrained by worldly ties.
Let your mind abide nowhere and be free from cares and worries; follow your own nature and be unrestrained; follow your destiny and be carefree.” Be content no matter where you are, what you encounter, or what you are doing.
Your transformation process from being a human to becoming a Celestial or to achieve Buddhahood must include these three items:
● Pay back your debts and end you worldly ties
● Accumulate your merits and virtues by serving and dedicating
● Perfect your LIFE’s nonmaterial structure
For those whose goal is to become a Celestial being: fame, power, wealth, and rank are traps, and glory, humiliation, favor, and disfavor are obstacles. It is only with the least amount of selfish desire and indifference to favor and humiliation that one can embark on the road to becoming a Celestial being, and the lack of selfish desire is the starting point toward reaching that end. If selfishness is not banished, then one will be bound to live as a laity, and if their desires are not extinguished, then they may be engulfed by the flames of desire. To become a Celestial being, one must reduce their selfishness, decrease their desires, keep a sober mind in the face of fame, power, and carnal pleasure, and use materials when necessary, but never be enslaved by them.
467. 欲成仙，须超凡脱俗，反常退进。俗尘只用一个字形容: 躁；凡世只用一个字形容：闹；仙境只用一个词形容：清静。所谓超凡脱俗，就是远离躁和闹，归于清静。
To become a Celestial, one must detach themself from worldly affairs and withdraw from worldly pursuits.
Only one word can describe the secular world: restless Only one word can depict the human world: noisy
Only one word can portray the fairylands: serene
Transcendence over worldly affairs means the taking of a great leap from restlessness and noise to a return to serenity.
What kind of space one lives in is dependent on their LIFE structure. Animals scurry about on the ground, birds soar in the sky, bees buzz among flowers, flies dash between garbage piles, ordinary people hustle and bustle in private ownership and having families, sages wander freely in public ownership, Celestials enjoy leisure in non-ownership, and Super Celestial Beings play at will in their own worlds.
One of the magic codes for becoming a Celestial being is to be able to create a future fairyland in our consciousness. We must first imagine ourselves as a Celestial being in our consciousness: “Different modes of thinking correspond to different forms of LIFE”. If we always envision life in the Thousand-year World, then the structure of your LIFE will develop toward that end and we will go there when the conditions become right. Others may think that we are dead, but we will actually have departed the human world to enjoy a Celestial being’s life in the Thousand-year World.
The way of Buddha has beliefs of “five monastic precepts and ten kindnesses”, and “precepts, calmness, and wisdom”, the way of Christianity has beliefs of original sin and penance, and the way of Humans has a set of theories and rules governing human relationships. The way of Celestial beings’ beliefs encourage the exhibition of their natures, being free and joyful; follow your own nature and be unrestrained; follow your destiny and be carefree.
When we are tired and fatigued, we have strayed from the Celestial way; when we are happy and unrestrained, we are closer to the Celestial way.
Swine must possess the thinking of the swine keeper to know the meaning of their lives; people must possess the thinking of their keeper to know the meaning of their lives; anyone who knows the meaning of their life has become a Celestial.
To become a Celestial being and achieve Celestial immortality, one must strive to find the “spiritual pure land”, plan their life around it, spread their love across the world, and contribute more to the new era.
Eight (8) major consciousnesses are involved in the process of advancing from the human world to heaven; that is, ascending from a human being to a Celestial being:
1. Enlightened Consciousness of LIFE. LIFE is a nonmaterial structure with spirituality; it undergoes endless transmigrations without annihilation.
2. Enlightened Consciousness of Life and Death. Life and death are only appearances, not essences; forms, not truth. “Boundless grasses across the plains come and go with every season; wildfires never quite consume them, they are tall once more in the spring wind”. When your boat reaches the other shore, you simply disembark.
3. Enlightened Consciousness of Karma. “As a man sows, so he shall reap”; “Divine punishments, though slow, are always sure; with big meshes, yet letting nothing slip through”.
4. Enlightened Consciousness of Space. There are twenty (20) parallel worlds in the universe, thirty-six (36) dimensional spaces, and paradises and hells. Paradises are for perfect LIVES; hells are for defective ones. There are different spaces of LIFE for different life states. Each LIFE lives in a space corresponding to their LIFE state.
5. Enlightened Consciousness of Predestined Relationships. All relationships are predestined. Relationships with ghosts will drop one to hell; relationships with Celestial beings will raise one to a fairyland. If one’s debts are not paid off, they cannot get out of their plight, and if one does not have enough merits and virtue, they cannot reach the fairyland.
6. Enlightened Consciousness of Mind and Nature (LIFE’s nonmaterial structure). Reality is a projection of consciousness; consciousness creates reality. Form gives birth to mind, but mind can transcend over form. “Minds are the most important of the Three Realms, and consciousness is the most important of all rules.” Fragrances will attract butterflies to flowers and pure hearts will be frequented by Celestial beings; minds that do not abide anywhere are Tathagata; nature is the characteristic of structure; it is Buddha.
7. Enlightened Consciousness of Eight-diagram Arrays. The universe has thirty-six (36) Eight-diagram Arrays and they are the sources of games. They are full of fun; for example, power, money, fame, gain, carnal pleasure, and affection are Eight-diagram Arrays from which no one can detach themself once they become entrapped; it is only after one has acquired supreme Authentic Wisdom that they can transport themself outside the samsara world of endless transmigrations.
8. Enlightened Consciousness of the true Origin. Everything has its source, its origin. Consciousness, structure, and energy are the three constituent elements of the universe; all others are “as a dream, an illusion, a bubble, a shadow; as dew and lightning; thus, you should meditate upon them”. The Greatest Creator is the source of everything and therefore the real origin; if you understand Him and follow His way, then any of the eighty-four thousand (84,000) methods will lead you to a smooth path, otherwise, you will be at the edge of a cliff.
How does one become enlightened? If one can achieve an integrity of body and soul through self-improvement and self-refinement, then they will have grown real spirit, great talent, and virtues concentrated within them. Without the Great Vow, they will find it difficult to understand the profundity of the universe, and to become enlightened. If they can achieve the following, then the light of their soul will become brighter, their consciousness will become clearer, and they will finally become enlightened.
● Hold and keep to the “One”
● Be free from ego and selfishness
● Revere the Greatest Creator, LIFE, and nature wholeheartedly; follow the Way of the Greatest Creator
● Devote your heart and soul to the creation of a reality in which the talented are put to good use, the whole world becomes one big family, no one pockets anything found on the ground, and doors are not bolted at night
● Everything is in harmony, the wind and rain come in their time, and everyone is happy, joyous, free, and blessed
The program cannot be initiated unless conditions are ripe and one cannot ascend to become a Celestial being if their self-improvement and self-refinement have not achieved the necessary ideal level.
Heaven is the general term for the Thousand-year World, the Ten- thousand-year World, and the Celestial Islands Continent of the Elysium World.
The Thousand-year World, the Ten-thousand-year World, and the Elysium Celestial Islands Continent are not fanciful imaginations. They are inevitabilities caused by the law that the sum of all positive and negative energy is always zero, just like the inevitable existence of Mercury, Venus, Mars, and the outer planets in our solar system and of our seven apertures, hair, limbs, and all of our internal organs.
The Thousand-year World is a celestial body that is nine-hundred and sixty (960) light years from Earth. About ten times the size of Earth, it is currently inhabited by approximately two-hundred-million (200,000,000) Celestial beings. As the basic life span of LIFE for Celestial beings on this celestial body is about a thousand (1,000) years relative to Earth time, it is called the Thousand-year World. It is a world of pure sincerity, kindness, and beauty; one of love, peace, pleasure, and where human nature is sublimated; anyone with a perfect human nature can undoubtedly go there, as there is no limit to the population size.
480. 天国万年界。在离地球3480光年处的遥远太空，有一个美丽的星 球，其大小比地球大16倍，拥有16颗等距离排列的太阳，那里生活着一亿左右的仙，这些仙的基本特征与道教所描述的陆地仙差不多，他们的寿命相对于人间而言约为35000年左右，所以叫万年界。
The Ten-thousand-year World is a beautiful celestial body located three- thousand, four-hundred and eighty (3,480) light years from Earth. It is sixteen (16) times the size of Earth and is surrounded by sixteen (16) equidistant suns. About one hundred-million (100,000,000) Celestial beings live there. The basic characteristics of these Celestial beings are pretty much the same as those of Land-Celestial beings described by Taoism. They enjoy life spans of about thirty-five-thousand (35,000) years relative to Earth time, and thus this celestial body is called the Ten- thousand-year World.
481. 天堂极乐界是地球宇宙的总称（人类所在的宇宙是个小宇宙，叫地球宇宙），地球宇宙是相对于其他宇宙而言，地球宇宙的结构是太极椭圆体，这个太极椭圆体叫法旋系，其中有3000个旋河系，每个旋河系内有 3000个银河系，每个银河系中有3000个太阳系。或者说，极乐界由3000个大千世界，或900万个中千世界，或270亿个小千世界构成。
The Elysium World is the general term for the Earth Universe (the universe inhabited by humans is a small one that is called the Earth universe). The Earth Universe is called this in relation to other universes; its structure is a Taiji ellipsoid which is called a Law-Rotary Galaxy. Law-Rotary Galaxies contain three-thousand (3,000) Rotary-River Galaxies, each Rotary-River Galaxy contains three thousand (3,000) Milky-Way Galaxies, and each Milky-Way system contains three thousand (3,000) Solar systems; in other words, the Elysium World is composed of three thousand (3,000) macro worlds, nine million (9,000,000) medium worlds, and twenty-seven billion (27,000,000,000) small worlds.
482. 仙岛群岛洲是上帝的后花园。仙岛群岛洲有800亿个岛，每一座岛与地球大小差不多，每一座岛都有一个名称，每一座岛只住一位天仙，除 300亿座已由天仙作为自己的“家园”外，还有500亿座岛屿目前无仙居住，等待着从人间、千年界、万年界修行修炼成天仙的“人”去住。
The Celestial Islands Continent of the Elysium World is the Greatest Creator’s backyard; it has eighty-billion (80,000,000,000) islands, each the size of Earth. Each island has a name and only one Super Celestial Being inhabits it. Apart from the thirty-billion (30,000,000,000) islands that have been used by Super Celestial Beings as their “home”, the remaining fifty-billion (50,000,000,000) islands are not currently inhabited by any Celestial beings. They are to be inhabited by “people” from the human world, the Thousand-year World, and the Ten-thousand- year World as they succeed in transforming themselves into Super Celestial Beings through self-cultivation and self-refinement.
The Elysium World has ten (10) continents:
1. The Lotus Continent
2. The Borneo Continent
3. The Kasyapa Continent
4. The Yingwu Continent
5. The Amita-Buddha Continent
6. The Celestial Islands Continent
7. The Three Realms Transit Continent
8. The Moon Temple Continent
9. The Gods Continent
10. The Supreme Authentic Wisdom Continent
The Celestial Islands Continent is one of the continents of the Elysium World.
Super Celestial Beings are the highest realm that humans can ascend to; their base camp is on the Celestial Islands Continent of the Elysium World.
● Hostess Yu’e of Xuefeng Island on the Celestial Islands Continent is a Super Celestial Being
● Guanshiyin, the revered Goddess of Mercy and Compassion is a Super Celestial Being
● Angels in western culture are Super Celestial Beings
Super Celestial Beings are Buddhas; the difference is that Buddha has certain restraints, while Super Celestial Beings do not. Buddha has responsibilities but Super Celestial Beings do not. The greatest characteristic of Super Celestial Beings is that they can play in whatever way they think is most interesting. After Buddhahood is attained, there are still higher realms awaiting, but after becoming a Super Celestial Being, none remain to be pursued. Super Celestial Beings mainly engage in self-entertainment and do not care about affairs in heaven or the human world. Buddha does not pursue entertainment and is not obsessed with momentary relaxation, but focuses on the acquisition of Supreme Authentic Wisdom. Super Celestial Beings are the freest, most pleasant, and happiest LIVES in the universe. As the favorites of the Greatest Creator, they do not undertake any responsibilities or obligations. Buddha is the most intelligent and self-disciplined LIFE in the universe; Buddha will bear responsibilities and obligations when necessary.
Heaven is for happy and joyous people; it is not for those who are weighed down by worries. The longer one is happy and joyful, the better and more stable their nonmaterial structures of LIFE become and the closer they are to paradise.
To obtain a visa to the Thousand-year World, the Ten-thousand-year World, or the Elysium World, one must give up their ego and enter into a holographic state. To give up one’s ego is not “to keep heavenly laws and extinguish humanly desire” as advocated by Confucianism in China, nor is it a rivalry against “the realization of individual value” as advocated by American culture; rather, letting go of self means the abjuration of obstinate belief in oneself. If you are convinced that your own cognition is completely right and immaculate, then you may be correct in every step along your way, but finally go astray into illusive thinking and never be able to walk out of the desert of LIFE and the “Cave of Silken Web” of transmigration.
Heaven, whether the Thousand-year World, the Ten-thousand-year World, or the Elysium World, is a place of liveliness and recreation, and this is particularly true of the Celestial Islands Continent; if you are not good at or have no intention of having fun, then why do you self-improve and self-refine to enter the land of heaven? Do you want to be a police officer in heaven? Let me tell you, there are no police, lawyers, judges, director generals, section chiefs, or supervisors there.
People who cannot dream about a colorful dreamland will rarely enter heaven, so if you often see green mountains and clear rivers, gentle breezes and bright sunshine, and delightful auspiciousness pervading everywhere in your dreams, then you will go to the Thousand-year World. If you often dream about amazing and beautiful sceneries, soaring through the skies, and feeling wonderful when interacting with the opposite sex physically, mentally, or spiritually without the slightest fear or trepidation, it is evident that you will go to the Ten-thousand-year World. If you dream that you can make yourself invisible, soar freely, transform yourself at will, and make reality change by your own consciousness, then this indicates that you will enter the Elysium World.
To aim for heaven, you must climb over two (2) huge mountains; one is the man-made program, and the other is your personal “Egypt of the Soul”.
The man-made program includes family, nationality, state, religion, political party, the current social order, and the way of life. To enter heaven, you must walk out of these programs; you cannot reach heaven without escaping from them.
The Egypt of the Soul includes jealousy, comparison, complaining, arrogance, wrath, possessiveness, forced occupation, enmity, tenets and doctrines, commandments and dharma, contention, greed, laziness, and intentional action. If you do not clear away these trash in your soul, then you cannot reach heaven.
Please abandon the human program, flee from your ”Egypt of the Soul”, break your chains, and fly toward freedom.
490. 如何积累天国财宝呢？一、敬畏上帝、敬畏生命、敬畏大自然、走上帝的道就是积累财宝在天国；二、无私地付出奉献就是积累财宝在天 国; 三、化解恩怨、仇怨、给他人和社会带来宁静祥和及温馨，就是积累财宝在天国；四、发善念、行善举就是积累财宝在天国；五、歌颂上帝、歌颂基督耶稣、歌颂佛陀释迦牟尼、歌颂仙人老子、歌颂人类历史上的贤圣贤哲，赞美生命、赞美生活、赞美他人、赞美和保护大自然，就是积累财宝在天国；六、给人以生活的信心，促使人向往美好未来，消解人的焦虑、忧愁、恐惧、担忧，就是积累财宝在天国；七、绽放给他人不带来一丝一毫精神上、心灵上、肉体上伤害和痛苦的美妙情爱和性爱之花，就是积累财宝在天国；八、充分地展现自己的艺术美，就是积累财宝在天国。
How can we accumulate wealth in heaven? Here are eight (8) ways:
1. Revere the Greatest Creator, LIFE, and nature, and follow the Way of the Greatest Creator
2. Dedicate selflessly
3. Dissolve enmity and bring serenity, peace, and warmth to others and to society
4. Have a kind heart and do good deeds
5. Sing praises to the Greatest Creator, Jesus Christ, Buddha Sakyamuni, Celestial being Lao Tzu, Prophet Mohammed (PBUH), and the sages and saints throughout history; sing praises to life and other people; sing praises and protect nature
6. Promote people’s confidence in life, prompt people to long for beautiful futures, and relieve people’s anxieties, worries, trepidations, and fears
7. Bloom your romantic and sexual love in ways that do not bring any psychological, spiritual, or physical harm, or stress to anyone else
8. Fully exhibit your artistic beauty
The Kingdom of Heaven does not accept children who have never grown up; neither adults lacking childlike minds nor childish adults who have not grown up are accepted in heaven. People’s traditional lifestyles hinder them from growing up; many people are still immature and cannot become “ripe crops” even well into their advanced years; this is something that provokes our thoughts. “Ripe crops” are certainly children who have grown up and matured; if you have never grown up, then you are surely not eligible to enter heaven.
492. 要去天国千年界，我们要做到以下八点：一、敬畏上帝、坚信上 帝、始终对上帝心存感激；二、敬畏生命、敬畏大自然；三、没有嫉妒心、怨恨心、争斗心、贪婪心、执着心、私心、埋怨他人心；四、不以任何理由和借口束缚和妨碍他人的幸福和自由；五、善良，心善、面善、语善、行善；六、诚实，实事求是、实话实说、不欺骗、不撒谎；七、勤劳，不懒惰、保持居住和周围环境干净整洁、优美和谐；八、守信，说话算数不食言、信守诺言、信守合约。
To enter the Thousand-year World, one must meet the following eight (8) requirements:
1. Revere and believe firmly in the Greatest Creator and always be grateful to Him
2. Revere LIFE and nature
3. Possess no jealousy, resentment, belligerence, greed, stubbornness, selfishness, or complaints against others
4. Never hinder other people’s happiness or freedom under any pretense or excuse
5. Have a kind heart; kindness can be felt from one’s appearance, words, and behavior
6. Be honest, practical, realistic, and truthful; never lie or cheat
7. Work hard and keep your living and surrounding environment clean, tidy, beautiful, and harmonious
8. Keep all promises and agreements
493. 要去天国仙岛群岛洲，必须成就天仙果位；要成就天仙果位，必须具备天仙的生命结构。自洽，就是天仙生命结构所需的八大品质之一。 “自洽”就是自身形成了一个完备的体系，自身不缺少什么，自身内部一切相当协调一致地运行，不用借助外界的一切就能满足自身所需一切。“自洽”就是如来，“无我相，无人相，无众生相，无寿者相，无法相，亦无非法相”。“自洽”就是“恍惚”、“窈冥”、“妙徼”、“牝牡”、“阴阳”、“太极”。
To enter the Celestial Islands Continent, one must achieve the status of a Super Celestial Being; to achieve this status, they must possess the LIFE structure of a Super Celestial Being. Self-harmony is one of the eight qualities which are required in the LIFE structures of Super Celestial Beings and it refers to a self-formed complete system which is defective of nothing, has good coordination and congruence, and satisfies all it needs internally. Self-harmony is Tathagata with no form of self, others, living beings, lifetime, dharma, or non-dharma. Self- harmony is “trance”, “obscurity”, “the subtle”, “male and female”, “Yin and Yang”, and “Taiji”.
How can we cultivate the character of self-harmony? There are eight (8) ways:
1. Create millions of images and dharma within your mind; namely, “create reality with consciousness”
2. Life is death, death is life, glory is disgrace, and disgrace is glory; show no concern for life, death, glory, or disgrace; possess strength but retain gentleness; know and observe all, but remain obscure
3. There is no essential difference between form and emptiness; consciousness returns to the state of zero, and the soul returns to the spiritual pure land
4. Everything is but a game, only LIFE is true, so do not persist in anything
5. Have everything but possess nothing; transcend over time and space and maintain a powerful and unconstrained style
6. Enjoy and please yourself within your own consciousness completely and freely；follow your own nature and be unrestrained; follow your destiny and be carefree.
7. Maintain a holographic status with no interiors or exteriors, no borders or boundaries, no rights or wrongs, no truths or falsehoods, and no kindnesses or wickednesses
8. Make the “real”, illusive and dreamlike; make the “illusive”, reasonable
There is neither oppression nor exploitation in heaven; all those who want to enter heaven by self-improving and self-refining must not contend, fight, or debate with others; they must not despoil, oppress, or exploit others, nor should they bring unhappiness or unpleasantness to others under any pretense in any way. They must never restrict another’s freedom for any reason, nor should they impose their views or opinions on others or cause spiritual, mental, or physical harm to anyone.
If you have paid off all your debts in the human world, accumulated enough merits and virtues in heaven, and have great qualities, then you will go straight to heaven after you pass away; if you have eliminated all concepts of families, nationalities, states, political parties, and religions from your consciousness, and if you like freedom, happiness, and joy, then you will enter the Thousand-year World of heaven after this life journey ends; if you often dream about soaring freely and can maintain a state of pleasure without sexual contact, then you will enter the Ten- thousand-year World of heaven after this life journey ends; if you possess the consciousness of Buddha, then you will enter the corresponding Elysium World after this life journey ends; if you revere the Greatest Creator, LIFE, and nature, follow the Way of the Greatest Creator, possess supernatural powers, and can create the world that you yearn for, then you will undoubtedly enter the Celestial Islands Continent of the Elysium World.
497. 成仙三步曲，第一步：告别了烦恼、痛苦、忧伤、焦虑和恐惧，生活在开心、快乐、自由、幸福中，已经成仙了。第二步：心无所住，心无挂碍，随缘放旷，任运逍遥，时时处在愉悦中，已经是仙了。第三步：无心，一切皆性活在性中，灵活圆融异常灵敏，拥有64种神通。心无所 住，心无挂碍，无我无相，自在自洽，与道合一，潇洒飘逸。
These three (3) steps are required to become a Celestial being:
1. Be free from trouble, pain, sorrow, worry, and fear, and live a happy, joyous, free, and blessed life;
2. Let your mind abide nowhere, be free from worries and cares; follow your own nature and be unrestrained; follow your destiny and be carefree, and maintain a state of pleasure at all times;
3. Be free from your mind, everything is nature and you live by exhibiting your nature; you are humble, flexible, highly sensitive, and possess sixty-four (64) magical powers. Your mind abides nowhere; you have transcended your ego and are not affected by forms, and you have been free from attachments which lead you into the state of self-harmony; you are in tune with Tao, unrestrained, easy, and elegant.
Becoming a Super Celestial Being and reaching the Elysium World is to reach the peak of LIFE; humans cannot become god and can never become the Greatest Creator.
499. 我们一直在j求道，其实道不远人，道不弃人，鱼在水中，人在道 中，道就在我们身上，道就在我们身边，道就在我们日常的生活中，道就在千姿百态的事物中，道就在千变万化的现象中。顺道而行就是得道，把自己融入道中交给道管理安排就是得道。
We are always pursuing Tao, actually Tao is never very far from us and never abandons us; Tao surrounds us just like water surrounds fish; Tao exists in our everyday lives and throughout everything; Tao also exists in all changing phenomena. Going with the flow of Tao, letting yourself melt into Tao, and having Tao manage and lead your life means that you have attained it.
Everything runs in Tao, including the behaviors of governments; therefore, do not complain or get upset or enraged, but just do what you need to do. If you choose to plant a flower, that is your business; if the government chooses to destroy your flower, that is their business.
Ultimately, Tao will give everyone fair and just trials.
There is a supernatural soul in the universe, and this supernatural soul is the Greatest Creator.
502. 万物有源，源头就是上帝；生命有等级，生命的最高级就是上帝；万物在运动，运动的初动力就是上帝；宇宙有序，秩序的制定者就是上帝; 万物有灵，灵的源泉就是上帝。
About the Greatest Creator:
● Everything comes from its source; the Greatest Creator is the ultimate source
● LIFE has levels; the Greatest Creator is at the highest level
● Everything is in motion; the Greatest Creator is the ultimate driving force of all motions
● The universe is in order; the Greatest Creator is the designer of the order
● Everything has spirit; the Greatest Creator is the ultimate source of all spirits
503. 无极生太极，太极就是上帝。太极自然而来，故自然就是上帝。 Wuji gives birth to Taiji and Taiji is the Greatest Creator. Taiji came into being naturally, so nature and the Greatest Creator are one and the same.
The Greatest Creator has eight (8) features:
7. Supreme Powerful
8. Absolute Wisdom
The Greatest Creator is:
● The supreme leader of the universe
● The master of all gods
● The nerve center of the universe
● The core of energy
● The cradle of LIFE
● The birthplace of wisdom
● The creator of the universe and of LIFE
● The driving force of the universe
● The energy center of the universe
● The sweet spring in the desert; the beacon in the dense fog
● The ancestor of Buddha; Allah, Grand Brahma, and heaven
The Greatest Creator is not a god; there are many gods in the universe, but the Greatest Creator is exclusive.
Jesus Christ is not the Greatest Creator but a god.
Our relationship with the Greatest Creator is the most fundamental of all human relationships.
The Greatest Creator never communicates with individuals directly with human languages. All things are the Greatest Creator’s “language”. Ever- changing phenomena are the Greatest Creator’s words to humans.
People capable of understanding the “book without words” are having dialogues with the Greatest Creator.
The Greatest Creator never records his will with words or enters anyone’s mind to grant them special instructions or edifications; he never tests or inspects anyone; neither does he worry that some deity or demon might usurp his authority; he never judges anyone.
Where is the Greatest Creator? The essence of the Greatest Creator is in the Zero World, but the spirit of the Greatest Creator pervades everything throughout the universe.
Where is the Zero World? The Zero World is the point of zero in the universal coordinate system through which X, Y, and Z axes all must pass. The twenty (20) parallel worlds are all connected to the zero (0) point; as a result, the Greatest Creator exists simultaneously in all twenty (20) parallel worlds. Without the Greatest Creator, none of them would exist.
All spiritual wisdom originates from, and all glory remains with the Greatest Creator.
It is Tao that governs the universe and keeps the orderly operation of everything. Tao is the consciousness and the magical power of the Greatest Creator.
The way of nature is the way of the Greatest Creator; the way of the Greatest Creator is the way of nature.
The Way of the Greatest Creator has eight major meanings:
1. The universe is the product of the consciousness of the Greatest Creator
2. Everything comes into being as a result of creation
3. Everything runs in the consciousness of the Greatest Creator – Tao
4. Demonstrate our nature and act by conforming to nature
5. Revere and emulate the Greatest Creator
6. Reality is the portrayal of LIFE’s free consciousness
7. Happiness, joy, freedom, and blessings are the themes of LIFE
8. Everything is but a game
The essence of the Way of the Greatest Creator is nature (refers to the intrinsic nature of things), love, and Tao.
Nature is the feature of structure; Love is the feature of energy;
Tao is the feature of consciousness.
The core of the Way of the Greatest Creator is to ”reap what you have sown”. If you want to eat cucumbers, then you must sow cucumber seeds in the field; in this way, you will undoubtedly reap cucumbers but not watermelons or pumpkins. The Way of the Greatest Creator is the Way of nature; therefore, you can undoubtedly reap melon from melon seeds and reap beans from bean seeds. If you deviate from this, you may reap beans from melon seeds or the reverse. To be less abstract, in the fields of selfishness, greed, jealousy, resentment, ignorance, fatuity, and trickery, no matter what seeds you sow, they will always mutate into the wrong kinds of plants. “Reap beans from melon seeds” or “reap melons from bean seeds”. It is only in the fields of kindness, honesty, credibility, and unselfishness that you can “reap what you have sown”. In order to do that and realize your dream, you must follow the Way of Nature; deviating from it will cause hope to become desperation and comedy to become tragedy.
The Way of the Greatest Creator is broad and profound with extremely abundant intensions and extensions; it transcends time and space and governs everything; it is so extensive that there is no exterior and so narrow that there is no interior; everything runs in it and it changes everything and governs the universe.
The Way of the Greatest Creator is:
● The Way of light
● The Way of creation
● The Way of LIFE
● The Way of love
● The Way of freedom
● The Way of happiness
● The Way of magic
● The Way of holographic order
The way of the Greatest Creator is the way of nature, so humans should comply with and harness the power of nature, while neither conquering nor reforming it.
There was only one coincidence in the universe: the birth of the Greatest Creator. All things other than that are matters of inevitability; inevitability is the order of the universe and the order of the universe is inevitability. The universe is unified harmoniously by Tao; Tao is law and principle. Everything within the scope of law and principle is inevitable. There are absolutely no coincidences; so-called coincidences are links in the chain of inevitability.
There is no final judgment because judgments are being rendered continuously. What judges LIFE is not the Greatest Creator, gods, Buddha, or Hades, but Tao - the consciousness of the Greatest Creator. Tao operates every moment without pause.
Letting all LIVES live happily, joyously, freely and blessedly is the original purpose of the Greatest Creator’s creation and remains HIS will.
Understanding, revering, and believing in the Greatest Creator and following His way are the preconditions for our conscience to develop. One who has no Greatest Creator in their mind will be unable to develop their conscience; it will die out. We can even say that such a person has no conscience and is a heartless unruly troublemaker. Following the Way of the Greatest Creator is the fundamental prerequisite and guarantee for the entire mankind and each individual to lead a happy life
Anyone who wants to become, or thinks they can become, the Greatest Creator is an incarnation or representation of Satan; anyone who instigates others to attempt to become the Greatest Creator is a representative or an accomplice of demons.
Soul power is the highest level of energy in the universe; all soul power comes from the Greatest Creator. As long as we continue to believe in and follow the Way of the Greatest Creator, we will have no shortage of soul power. Essence and spirit are energies second only to soul power. The energy of essence mainly comes from the nimbus between heaven and earth, and this nimbus includes the energy brought to man by everything in nature; namely, the energy given to man by all the beauty of nature and the energy of carbohydrates converted from food. The energy of spirit mainly comes from the level of consciousness. It is a structural energy, a program energy, a belief energy, and can even be generalized as the energy of Tao.
All those who regard their reverence to the Greatest Creator as the faith of their lives and perceive the profundity of Tao with their souls, and all those who pursue Supreme Authentic Wisdom and strive to achieve the highest realm of life, are leading spiritual lives. In order to attain a spiritual life, one needs to listen to the teachings of Jesus Christ and take the Way of the Greatest Creator by following Jesus’ instructions.
Why should we take the Way of the Greatest Creator? Because we can only get to higher LIFE spaces via revering and walking on the way of the Greatest Creator. Without revering the Greatest Creator and walking on His way, we can only hover in a certain space or slide into lower spaces, but we can never ascend to higher spaces.
528. 上帝之道是开心、快乐、自由、幸福之道，不论处于顺境还是逆 境，不论面临绝望还是死亡，一定要保持自己内心的宁静和喜悦，要相信上帝会明察秋毫，奖惩分明。要敢于把自己的生命交给上帝安排，把自己的人生交给道管理。
The Way of the Greatest Creator is the road to happiness, joy, freedom, and blessing; you are to keep a peaceful and joyous inner mind whether you are in prosperity or adversity or even facing desperation or death.
Be convinced that the Greatest Creator is perceptive of the minutest detail in everything and is definite about punishments and rewards, and be brave enough to have the Greatest Creator take charge of your LIFE and have Tao manage your life.
529. 上帝创造的一切，错落有致、层次分明，只要我们服从上苍的安 排，谨守做人的本分，沿着人性的轨迹前行，不论我们的人生是顺是逆，是明是暗，我们的人生就是无悔人生。
All things created by the Greatest Creator are arranged in clearly defined layers; as human beings, as long as we obey the arrangement of the Greatest Creator, keep to our duties strictly, and advance along the trajectory of human nature, we will have unregretful lives, no matter whether we are prosperous or in adversity; or in brightness or darkness.
Even gods, Buddha, Celestial beings, monsters, demons, and goblins are powerless before the Greatest Creator, so on our road of life and LIFE, everything will give way to us and cannot harm us as long as we cling tightly to HIS hand.
The Greatest Creator does not decide anyone’s destiny; everyone’s destiny is ultimately brought about by themselves and is the result of their consciousness.
Understanding things is not for the sole purpose of enjoying and living harmoniously with them; what is more important is to make use of them to serve us and to broaden our scope of free activity to the greatest extent. Following the Way of the Greatest Creator does not mean to endure hardships and sufferings, but to enjoy life and LIFE, and obtain more happiness and pleasure to the greatest extent.
Great love is like a mountain and is wordless; the Greatest Creator’s love for us is constant, eternal, and has never been expressed in any human language; if conditions are attached to love, if it needs to be repaid, or if it needs to be expressed in words, then such love is only small love; not great love.
Why should we be in awe of the Greatest Creator? The Greatest Creator is the supreme sovereign king of the universe, the creator of LIFE, and the guardian of equity and order. Without the Greatest Creator, there would be no universe, no mankind, no god or Buddha. So should we not be in awe?
● Only if we feel awed, can we do whatever we desire to, but not go against HIS rules
● Only if we feel awe, can we obey the objective law and act by conforming to nature
● Only if we feel awed, can we understand that “there are divinities watching over us” so that we dare not harbor evil ideas or conduct misdeeds
● Only if we feel awed, can we live in harmony with nature, beings, and everything, instead of doing whatever we want including the butchering of beings.
Awe and respect derive from feelings of gratitude, humility, passionate love for life, and heartfelt esteem for the creator and the governor.
If we do not follow the Way of the Greatest Creator, then we can barely solve the problems of life; if we do not sublimate the quality of our LIVES, then we cannot have great lives.
The Way of the Greatest Creator is neither of private ownership nor of public ownership, but of non-ownership; resources are shared but occupied by none; everyone uses resources as they need them, but nobody occupies or accumulates them. It is only in this way that the human world can become an ideal land and those beautiful dreams of mankind can be realized.
537. “三分人事七分天”，这是说，要成就某事，要达成心愿，要实现理 想，个人的努力只占三分，七分要靠天，这个天就是上帝，就是道，就是程序，就是天时、地利、人和，就是自然。人的智慧是非常有限的，人的努力也是有限的，如果天时不顺，如果地利不便，人再努力，也是枉然。
“Man proposes and God disposes”. That is to say, one’s success in achieving something and realizing certain wishes and ideals relies 30% on individual diligence and 70% on God; in this sense, God means the Greatest Creator, Tao, the program, good timing, geographical convenience, harmonious human relations, and nature. Human wisdom and human endeavors are both very limited; if time and geographical positions are not favorable, then you cannot achieve anything no matter how much effort you exert.
By following the Way of the Greatest Creator,
● You can disengage yourself from the abyss of misery and arrive directly at the most ideal realm of LIFE
● You can connect with the origin of the universe and enjoy the pleasures of LIFE at any time
● You can shake off the bondage of time and space and let your thinking and consciousness race freely across the unlimited universe
● You can accumulate your merits and virtues and pay back all your debts from all your past lives
● You will have a limpid mind and a clear consciousness to realize your dreams
Following the Way of the Greatest Creator is the most convenient, simple, direct, and effective path; by following it, you can dispense with all taboos and need not immerse yourself in daily exploring and searching after Tao, virtue, benevolence, righteousness, courtesy, wisdom, credibility, and technique; you need not chant scriptures or pray every day, or go to great lengths to cultivate special magical power or techniques. You need not tread great distances to follow the enlightened or engage in serious heated discussions. All you need is to conform to nature.
540. 上帝之道是自然之道，一切要在自然中成就，急于想获得什么，急于想到达目标，都背离自然之道，“瓜熟蒂落，水到渠成”就是自然，强 行、强为就背离自然，有意识地努力和顺其自然要结合起来，没有有意识地努力，必然会原地转圈走不出迷茫、迷乱，走不出36道八卦阵，没有顺其自然的心态和态度，必然会焦虑，必然会争，会有为，会欲速不达，会适得其反。
The Way of the Greatest Creator is the Way of nature; everything is accomplished naturally. It is against the Tao of nature to expect to obtain and achieve something as soon as you want it. “Melons' pedicels fall when their fruit ripens and channels form when water flows” - this is what is meant by nature. Force and compulsion are against nature.
Conscious effort should be combined with adherence to the course of nature. Without conscious effort, we can only circle around our original spot and cannot walk out of bewilderment or the thirty-six (36) Eight-diagram Arrays. Without an attitude and state of mind that adheres to the course of nature, we will certainly feel anxious and contentious, overemphasize effort, and our eagerness for success will backfire; in the end, we may get the opposite of that for which we have wished.
For five thousand years, humans have only had smattering clues of the Greatest Creator, but without a correct and relatively complete understanding, we could not be in HIS awe; without feeling awed, our lives as individuals would be perplexed and doleful, and society as a whole would not be able to eliminate the hidden troubles and establish auspicious and peaceful vital forces in harmony with nature. One can only have a perfect life by following HIS Way; human beings can only lead themselves out of confusion by doing the same.
Walk on the way of the Greatest Creator but not on the way of gods, because Satan is also a god.
The Greatest Creator is love, sincerity, kindness, beauty, faith, honesty, happiness, joy, freedom, and blessing, and so should we be; the Greatest Creator, as the name means, is a wonderful creator, and so should we engage in and derive pleasure from labor and creation; the Greatest Creator per se is selfless dedication; so should we emulate the Greatest Creator and derive happiness from selfless dedication.
Human beings must never say or do things in the name of the Greatest Creator.
The ways to contact the Greatest Creator are to read the “book without words”, to meditate, and to pray.
If one's life is not smooth, then they must be going against the Way of the Greatest Creator; HE will not use suffering and misery to treat those people who walk along his way; no, not at all. If we encounter tribulation and suffering, it is not that the Greatest Creator is testing us, but that we have deviated from HIS Way.
The will of the Greatest Creator manifests itself through the rules and laws of nature.
Those who practice divination, fortune-telling, magical arts, evil arts, or charmers, consulters with familiar spirits, wizards, or necromancers, are all hated by the Greatest Creator.
Do not put the Greatest Creator to the test.
“Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.”
“Forgive those who have sinned against you and the Greatest Creator will forgive your sins; if you do not, the Greatest Creator will not either.”
Have firm faith in the Greatest Creator and have no care for tomorrow.
Judge not others and you will not be judged; for as you have judged, so shall you be judged, and by your measure will it be measured upon you. When we see others' shortages, we shall consider that we might be uglier and worse than others.
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”
“All those things which you would have others do unto you, do even unto them.”
“Enter through the narrow gate, for wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction and many enter through it, but small is the gate and narrow is the road that leads to LIFE and very few ever find it.”
“Guard against false prophets, for they come to you in sheep's clothing but are inwardly ferocious wolves; by their fruits, you shall recognize them.”
Not everyone who calls to Jesus, “Lord, Lord”, will enter the kingdom of heaven; only those who do the will of the Greatest Creator will be so blessed.
In the kingdom of the Greatest Creator, people do not marry; only those who do not marry are entitled to enter the kingdom of the Greatest Creator; those who want to marry can never reach the kingdom of the Greatest Creator.
Faith is truth and love is LIFE; faith can accomplish everything. Little faith brings about small achievements; great faith brings about great achievements. Without faith, you will be at loose ends and will achieve nothing.
561. “门徒说：‘人和妻子的关系要是这样，倒不如不结婚了。’ 耶稣对门徒们说：‘这话不是人人都能接受的，唯独有这种恩赐的人才能接受。能接受的，就接受吧。’ ”
“The disciples said, ‘If this is the situation between husbands and wives, then it is best not to marry’, but Jesus said, ’Not everyone can accept this word, but only those to whom it has been given, so only the ones who can accept it should do so’.”
For whosoever does the will and walks on the Way of the Greatest Creator is our spiritual relative.
My brother keeps offending me, but I will forgive him seventy-seven (77) times; if we do not forgive others from the bottom of our hearts, then the Greatest Creator shall not forgive us.
Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant; whoever wants to be first among you must be your slave.
Give back to Caesar what is Caesar's, and to the Greatest Creator what is the Greatest Creator’s.
The Greatest Creator is not for the dead, but for the living.
Those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.
What goes into a man's mouth does not make him unclean; what comes out of it does.
What does it benefit someone to gain the whole world and yet lose his LIFE? What can anyone give in exchange for his LIFE?
Love the Greatest Creator with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this: ' Have love for your neighbor as for yourself ’.
To worship the Greatest Creator, you need not go to churches, temples, Taoist abbeys, or mosques; the whole universe and nature are the places for our souls to worship the Greatest Creator.
Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, store up treasures in heaven. For where our wealth is, there will our heart be, and there we will get in future.
The realm of our LIVES will certainly be manifested by what we value; we will live wherever our full consciousnesses are.
The sky will not offer rain to a land that is a barren desert; likewise, heaven will not offer spirituality to a heart that is a barren, spiritual desert.
The mind governed by the flesh is death but the mind governed by the Spirit is LIFE and peace.
Unless we change and become like little children, we will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”
“A man's foes shall be his own household”.
What is great faith? It is 100% doubtless belief and acceptance; it is having faith in both what you already understand and what you do not yet know. If great faith cannot be established, then we are as water without sources or trees without roots.
Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the LIFE, so we must listen to his teachings and follow his guidance.
Those who hear the words of Jesus and act upon them will be as the wise one who built a house on a rock; and the rain came down, and there was a flood, and the winds blew, but the house remained because it was based on solid ground; those who hear the words of Jesus but do not act upon them will be as the foolish one who built a house on quicksand, and the house collapsed with the slightest breeze.
Do not take an oath because we cannot control changes or developments; once we fail to hold to oaths, we break our promises, thus we shackle and bind ourselves.
Be neither attached nor detached in relationships.
The proper amount of affection is good for one’s emotions; however, if it is excessive, it becomes toxic and brings troubles and sorrow.
People who enjoy more abundant love in their lives have more beautiful souls; they have gentler characters, calmer tempers, and are closer to the Greatest Creator; they understand more about how to love life, nature, and other people.
People who suffer from having less love in their lives have uglier souls; they have venomous characters and more irritable tempers. They are farther from the Greatest Creator; they know less about life, and have less amount of love towards life, nature, and other people.
The lower the level of LIFE, one experiences lesser love. What is hell? A place that is devoid of love is hell.
The higher the level of LIFE, one experiences more abundant love. What is heaven? A place that is brimming over with love is heaven.
The attitude toward love: handle naturally come-and-go relations with no resistance, act according to your nature, take advantage of opportunities that arise, embrace love as it comes and keep a peaceful mind when love goes, never obsess or be infatuated over it, and never attempt to possess or occupy anyone through coercion. Let love develop naturally when both partners share mutual feelings of attraction, never impose your will upon another if you do not resonate with them, and the standard should be that both parties feel happy and joyous.
Escape from the whirlpool of human relationships; we are not heartless or unfeeling, but we must not become entrapped by them. As with eating and drinking, we need food and water, but we do not view them as the purpose and significance of our lives. If we waste our entire lives looking for food and water, then there would be no value or significance to being human; in the same way, if we live primarily for our relationships, then we can never climb the mountains and cross the rivers to reach the realm of freedom.
Love has its own frequency, but only those who share the same ones will resonate in sympathetic vibration; love will be found with love, a heart without love cannot find love; to obtain love, you must first understand it, then seek and maintain love with love; those who lack love cannot feel it from others.
Affection, love, sex, and beauty are demonstrations of the most primitive attributes of nature. They are the most precious elements that make up LIVES; they are the sources of all fun and the most essential motive forces for which we live. In order to enjoy rewarding lives with excellent futures, we need to exert effort on them by melting ourselves into them rather than isolating ourselves from them. When we do that, life will be unusually brilliant with highlights too beautiful to be absorbed all at once, and bubble over with vigour, vitality, and endless enjoyment; when we isolate ourselves from them, it becomes more like the Gobi desert with utterly dreary cries and screams, dead silence, and an endless sea of tribulations.
Sex is a resource, not only a material one, but one of mental and spirit. The resource of sex between men and women is a particular resource which is of even more value and significance than food.
This resource can offer these eight (8) major benefits and pleasures:
1. It makes people placid and gentle
2. It makes people satisfied and content
3. It makes people love life and LIFE
4. It makes people yearn for the future
5. It guarantees our propagation and continuation
6. It pleases people and makes them happy and joyous
7. It allows people to feel grateful
8. It gives people a taste of the blissful realm
The best way to live is to go with the flow; the best way to associate with others is to follow naturally come-and-go relations; the best way to achieve tranquility is to accept things as they are; the best state of being is to unite with Tao; the most wonderful affection comes from the intrinsic nature, and the highest love is the love from one's intrinsic nature.
Exclusive relationships between men and women are ugly phenomena; they are nice from humanity's perspective, but very ugly from Celestial beings’ perspectives. Similarly, having more than one attached love relationship is also ugly. It is best to take things as they come, associate with others by following naturally come-and-go relations, act in accordance with your natures, and take advantage of opportunities that arise.
The love between husbands and wives, and between lovers with exclusive relationships, and the love who pledge solemnly to love eternally and pledge, “For you, I am pining myself away without regret” are all toxic, and falling into toxic relationships can lead to nothing but a painful life.
Love and sex can help us achieve our ideals, but they can also ruin us. Broad and extensive love is the quality of LIFE in heaven; narrow and exclusive love is the character of LIFE in the human world; scrambling for and possessing sexual resources is the nature of animals.
Love and sex are only beautiful embellishments and a spoondrift in life; definitely not the whole of life.
596. 真正的情爱是无私的，一旦有私，试图把对方当成自己的私有商 品，或是自己的点缀或附属品，这样的情爱就变得异常的丑陋，显出了奴隶主的猥琐和霸道；如诗如画的高尚情爱就坠进了低级趣味的陷阱，再也培植不出爱的芬芳花卉来。
True love is selfless; once selfishness enters your love, you will attempt to possess the other person as your own private property or as an embellishment or accessory, and such love will become extremely ugly by showing the indecency and domineering nature of a slave owner, and the picturesque and noble love will invariably fall into the trap of vulgar taste and no longer emit a flower-like fragrance.
Sex, is neither a dreadful monster nor a flood; if you let a river flow naturally, it will not become either of those, but if you block the water and do not let it flow naturally, then once the floodgates open or the dam breaks, it will cause devastating floods and becomes a monster. The more repressed sex is, the more violent it will turn, and it will become a dreadful monster or a flood.
Our heart (mind) can perceive the material world (Bodhi tree), and our soul (consciousness) is like a bright mirror which can “observe” how the heart responses to all kinds of phenomena. When reaching a state of enlightening, and perceiving the intrinsic nature of LIFE, the consciousness can create millions of things and phenomena by itself, thus it transcends all “dust” on the “mirror”, and reach the other shore of true freedom.
Women are beautiful for their softness which can overcome hardness; soft beauty is neither cowardice nor a lack of will. It will neither be acceptable to everyone nor be bullied arbitrarily; on the contrary, soft beauty is an extreme strength from within. Soft sentiment is like water; it can wash away all dirt, drip through stones, and conquer everything.
Love is an attribute and a precious gift bestowed upon us by the Greatest Creator; all love is pure, true, kind, and beautiful. The perfect man will sincerely love all ladies in the world and the perfect woman will passionately love all gentlemen in the world; this is not being fickle, but a noble quality possessed only by Celestial beings.
To marry is to be duped by patriarchal clan rulers, by autocratic governors, and ultimately by Satan.
Marriage certificate is a legal sales agreement, ever since one has this agreement, they lose their most freedoms in life.
Chinese written characters were created divinely. Let us consider what the character “婚” (marriage) really means: 女 means women and 昏 means confused. So, “婚” means confused women; when women are confused, they marry and men unite with women who are confused is called “结婚” (getting married).
Of all the orders established by human beings, marriage and family is the worst. It is only beneficial to those who dominate others, other than that, there are no other benefits.
Secular family members push us toward hell and hinder our ascension toward heaven; Jesus Christ said that “a man’s foes would be the members of his own household".
Traditional marriages and families have caused a great deal of harm; relationships between married couples are the most difficult to maintain and the most unfortunate, upsetting, restricting, and emotionally destructive, which has been proven by countless examples everywhere across many millennia; therefore, to see through it and emancipate oneself from traditional marriages and families as soon as possible is to swim out of an abyss of misery and reach a shore of freedom.
The traditional family life program is where the suffering of individuals and mankind exists; marriages and families create “boundless seas of bitterness”.
Families are prisons for our souls and shackles that weigh us down; they are also the root causes leading people towards narrowness, selfishness, and greed. Families are barriers that fetter people from liberating their nature and their freedom and are the greatest obstacle to their realization of beautiful lives. Families are also stumbling blocks that prevent people from advancing toward higher levels of LIFE spaces.
None of the contradictions, conflicts, or disasters occurring in traditional families are caused by parents, children, husbands, wives, or any sisters or brothers, but by the program of family life itself, which carries spiritual viruses; regardless of how civilized people are, they cannot avoid being infected by them once they become involved in the family program.
It is unnecessary for lovers to marry; if they yearn for a long-term relationship, they should avoid being together every day and night.
If you have a traditional family, love it, and do not leave it, then no matter how well you engage in self-cultivation, how advanced the method is, or how thorough your cultivation is, you can never reach heaven.
“Boundless is the sea of bitterness; repent and you will see the shore”. What is the sea of bitterness? Marriages and families are; marriages and families are the root causes of all agonies and afflictions; people’s vexations, depressions, anxieties, and misgivings all stem from them.
“Boundless is the sea of bitterness; repent and you will see the shore”. Where is the shore? The shore is the Second Home (now renamed as New Oasis for Life community) created by Lifechanyuan; devoid of marriages and families, it offers the most ideal lifestyle and is the only hope for humanity to end its suffering and afflictions.
We should address problems from their root causes; the root cause of suffering and afflictions is the existence of families. They are like garbage; if not cleaned up, flies cannot be kept away. Without the disappearance of families, people’s misery and afflictions will never end. To occupy yourself with relieving people’s endless misery and suffering at the surface level rather than by addressing their root causes is dealing with them ineffectively; it is like trying to stop water from boiling by scooping it up without turning the flame off or like cutting branches off brambles instead of digging up their roots. Wherever families exist, so will endless misery and suffering; if we do not deal with the root cause, then the misery and suffering will remain and never end. Buddha, Jesus Christ, and Bodhisattva Guan Yin could not help even if they were still in the mortal world; were families to exist in heaven, even heaven would become an abyss of misery.
Marriages and families are devil’s cradles; even angels become devils when they marry; all are prone to commit crimes once they do so.
Families are not the cells of society; rather, individuals are. The essence of a society is its people, not relations of production; families are only relations of production and can only be called cells of certain social formations and relations of production rather than the cells of a society.
The most beautiful societies have no families.
Difficulties and hardships never crush people, but the invisible pressures and destructive nature of marital and family bonds make them lose confidence in life and feel that their life is meaningless, even to the point of collapsing.
Marriages and families are hotbeds of and the soil that generate selfishness and the sources of trouble and misery; they are the root causes of crime.
The human world is only mortal because of the marital bonds which symbolize that couples possess each other, occupy each other, depend on each other, tie each other down, and form shields against the outside world; no one who is wrapped in a marital bond can be unselfish enough to reach the realm of heaven.
The most complex and troubling relationships in the world are marital bonds; not only they are the saddest and most disappointing ones, but also the most desired and desperate. When involved in them, one must avoid being too tough or too soft, too close or too far, too strong or too weak - these are relationships that cannot be attached to or escaped from; they are tangled like silk, untouchable like flames or ice, and are messes that cannot be described easily.
Marriages are tombs of love and families are sources of humanity’s sins. Being involved in marriages, people lose their freedom; having families, they become selfish. Marriages and families have generated boundless misery and are the abysses of misery itself.
Ending nuclear families and establishing Xuefeng-style communistic BIG families is the inevitable process for new era humans.
Escaping from nuclear families is not escaping from relatives; it is escaping from the traditional life program and entering a new one; it is definitely neither abandoning one’s duties and obligations nor disregarding one’s relatives.
Traditional families are ingrained; family consciousnesses have infiltrated into everyone’s blood, cells, and even their souls; traditional families are like huge icebergs which have grown for thousands of years, so they will not disappear today or tomorrow, but mankind has reached the crossroads of the times. When enough people realize the disadvantages of traditional families and take part in the work of actively melting these icebergs, then mankind will have hope and the Greatest Creator will show appreciation by offering us a way out. Vicious cycles can change or even reverse their directions and people can be led into a happy era; however, if too many people choose to maintain their traditional families instead of joining to melt these icebergs, then they will suffer the punishments of natural law.
Throughout history, family tragedies have emerged continually; from remote countrysides to prosperous cities, from the illiterate to Nobel prize winners, from the general public to celebrities of official, commercial, and cultural circles, the tragedies resulting from families are repeated everywhere. "Facts speak louder than words"; Family life patterns should be contemplated, discussed, and transformed.

After breaking up marriages and families, is any life pattern better than the traditional one? Yes! Since 2009, Lifechanyuan has put into practice an alternative mode of production and life; that is, “the Second Home”, now renamed the “New Oasis for Life” community. One hundred and eighty (180) people, early and late, and young and old have participated in our practice for up to eight (8) years, and our practice has proven that the life pattern of the New Oasis for Life community is superior to the traditional one.

- “No one will keep lost articles found on the roadside and doors will not need to be locked at night”
- Everything will be in complete harmony; the weather will be good for harvesting and everyone will be happy, joyous, free, and blessed.
The Second Home (New Oasis for Life community) has eight (8)

(6) 每人拥有一间神圣的自由空间——卧室，这个卧室不受人打搅和干 扰，任何人不得以任何理由和借口侵犯这个自由空间，其余的空间都是公共空间，公共场所；
The Second Home (New Oasis for Life community) consists of people who are unwilling to marry and establish families, have divorced but chose not to remarry and set up another family, and couples who are both Chanyuan Celestials. This new life pattern copies the lifestyle of Celestial beings in the Thousand-year World. The main content of this new life pattern includes:
1. Non-ownership - everyone possesses nothing yet owns everything
2. No marriages, no families, and no distinction between close and distant relationships; relationships between everyone are as those between sisters, brothers, relatives, or lovers
3. Everyone works to the best of their abilities and takes what they need but never wastes or indulges in luxuries or extravagances
4. The New Oasis for Life community is responsible collectively for everyone’s food, clothing, shelter, transportation, birth, aging, illness, and death, for rearing and educating the children, and for nursing and supporting the elderly
5. Everyone chooses jobs according to their skills and interests and does their best to ensure the highest quality performance in the work they do; there is no place for lazybones or parasites in the New Oasis for Life community
6. Everyone’s bedroom is their sacred and private space which is free from disturbance and interference; no one is allowed to intrude into these spaces under any pretense with any excuse. All other spaces are public
7. Let everyone enjoy happy, joyous, free, and blessed lives
8. Individuality shall blend with commonality; commonality shall accommodate individuality. There shall be a uniform will which does not conflict with the happiness of anyone and everyone must be able to exhibit their special talents. It is both an integrated group and a paradise consisting of mutually independent individuals
9. Holographic management will be implemented; namely, that non- management is the best management. There are no bosses or offices; Everything is carried out voluntarily by community members following the “800 Values for New Era Humans”
The Second Home (New Oasis for Life community) bombards traditional marriages and families - a program of life which is infected with viruses. Such viruses will encroach upon the sincerity, kindness, beauty, love, faith, and honesty of human nature and gradually drag the originally happy, joyous, free, and blessed lives into abysses of suffering, anxiety, enslavement, and desperation. To disband them and replace them with a new style of life is the most important matter that concerns everyone's happiness. Leaving traditional families for Lifechanyuan's New Oasis for Life community seems on the surface like leaving one small family and simply entering a bigger one, but the content of life is actually totally different. Not only is the New Oasis for Life community capable of what traditional families are, but also of much, much more.
The Second Home (New Oasis for Life community) is the No.1 home in the world, a happy and auspicious place that is blessed by the grace of the Greatest Creator, a pleasant and jubilant place that is cared for by Jesus Christ and Buddha Sakyamuni, and a free and beautiful place in which the dreams of the sages and saints from past generations are realized. This is the first home born for the grand cosmic adjustment of LIFE; it serves for the purification of Earth and lays foundations for the new life of humanity after 2013; it is hoped that virtuous people will find the gate to the number one home and join us as members ASAP. This is the most important thing in one’s life. The time has come to redefine traditional relationships which are based on kinships ; all those who follow the Way of the Greatest Creator and whose souls resonate with ours are our relatives.
In order to realize the ideals of sages and saints as well as the wishes of the broad masses and to set a good example for mankind, Lifechanyuan has initiated an unprecedented model of a new lifestyle for humanity’s future - ```the Second Home (New Oasis for Life community). This is no longer idle theorizing, but a reality of life; the New Oasis for Life community is a copy of the Thousand-year World, but in the human world; It is the base of self-cultivation and self-improvement for Chanyuan Celestials to thoroughly remould themselves to achieve Super Celestial Beings, and the transfer station from the human world to heaven. The New Oasis for Life community is exploring a new pattern of life for humanity; we believe firmly that when everyone lives according to the life pattern of the New Oasis for Life community, their tribulations will be alleviated, their suffering will be eased, nature’s deterioration will be reversed, and we will enter the Lifechanyuan Era that is to last a millenium. The New Oasis for Life community has solved problems that have been with us for thousands of years, such as support for the elderly. By continuous consolidation and improvement, the New Oasis for Life community will become a paradise, not only for children, young people, and middle-aged people, but particularly for the elderly.
All members of the New Oasis for Life community have chances to move to a different branch every three years; that is, after working and living in one branch for three years, they can be relocated to another one and move among all the branches in the world.
Any member living and working in the New Oasis for Life community who is found to have caused intentional physical, psychological, or spiritual harm to any other member will be expelled from the community immediately.
Laziness is the archenemy of the New Oasis for Life community; diligence symbolizes beauty, while laziness creates ugliness; diligence leads to bright futures, while laziness ruins the happiness endowed to us by the Greatest Creator; laziness destroys everything, it makes people sink into depravity, corrupts and erodes people’s wills, spirits, souls, and bodies, and causes the collapse of diligent collectives; it destroys the spiritual health of communities as viruses and eventually casts listless and spiritless spells over everyone and everything. What comes out of it is depression, ruination, and destruction.
Laborers have the greatest souls, although they may not be able to write articles exhibiting great talents and insights or they may not be eloquent or clever enough to exhibit their intelligence. Laborers may look very ordinary and may not be able to explain Dharma and Tao, or recite and quote phrases and sentences from the classics, they still have the greatest souls and their behaviors prove that they have abided by the teachings of Jesus Christ, Buddha Sakyamuni, Lao Tzu, and sages and saints.
Birthdays are not celebrated in the Second Home (New Oasis for Life community).
Only festivals which glorify nature are celebrated in the Second Home (New Oasis for Life community).
The Second Home (New Oasis for Life community) implements a holographic management pattern - non-management. Everyone is both a master and a servant; one is different from another only in the type of work they do; there are no hierarchical relationships such as between leaders and subordinates; no one is allowed to impose their will on others and everyone does their best to bring their qualities of sincerity, kindness, beauty, love, faith, and honesty into full play; everyone says what is on their minds, does their own work, takes charge of their own responsibilities, builds their own paths, and goes their own ways without minding anyone else’s business. They are responsible to themselves and the Greatest Creator but to no one else; they will not offer help unless it is asked but will give it immediately when it is; anyone who offers any suggestion will be responsible for its execution. Everyone builds a sacred court in their own conscience from which to pass judgment upon themselves.
The most significant characteristic of the Second Home (New Oasis for Life community) which distinguishes it from secular society and other communities is that there are no marriages or families and no individuals upon whom to depend with regard to one’s love and sex life; we take things as they are, associate with others by following naturally come-and- go relations, act in accordance with our natures, and take advantage of opportunities as they arise.
The Second Home (New Oasis for Life community) is not a shelter; those who intend to escape debts, obligations, entanglements, or punishments cannot join us.
The Second Home (New Oasis for Life community) is not a charity.
The Second Home (New Oasis for Life community) is a paradise which consists of the most civilized, diligent, kind-hearted, and selfless people.
Principle of the romantic and sexual love in the Second Home (New Oasis for Life community):
Romantic love is a precious gift bestowed upon us by the Greatest Creator; sexual love is the inevitable path to sublimating human nature and leaving for the high-level space of LIFE; romantic and sexual love are two souls dancing to the same beat. As long as both parties are attracted to each other, they can do whatever they feel is appropriate; nobody supervises, interferes, bothers, gossips, or backsides; lovers never possess, occupy, or are jealous of each other; freedom is above all else and lovers respect the other party’s freedoms fully without even the slightest reluctance or causing any mental, spiritual, or physical harm to each other.
The eight (8) advantages of living in the Second Home (New Oasis for Life community) are:
1. Life is guaranteed; there is no longer any need to worry about basic necessities of life such as food, clothing, shelter and transportation; you will be cared for when you are sick and your affairs will be dealt with after you pass away.
2. You will live for your values and faith, escape from the secular world, and no longer be entangled in worldly affairs.
3. Without the fetter of families, you will achieve more physical, mental, and spiritual freedom; nobody will watch you, bother you, or tangle with you; you will no longer trouble with, worry for, or feel anxious about your children’s issues.
4. Regardless of how you might change, you will always be able to find someone whose personality and temper fit yours and with whom to work, chat, and enjoy life.
5. As our division of labor is clear-cut and each person is in charge of specific responsibility, you will have a great amount of free time in which to do what you want and read what you like.
6. There are endless activities and entertainment to keep you from ever feeling bored or lonely.
7. Our collective energy will always support you to achieve Tao quickly, liberate yourself from the samsara of reincarnations, and then leave for heaven.
8. Our collective energy will help you to overcome all hardships.
The Second Home (New Oasis for Life community) defines no rules or regulations and no leadership roles in the traditional sense; one is different from another only in the division of labor; there are no top-down relationships between leaders and the governed; everyone is the owner of the community and everyone needs to carry out their responsibilities and obligations; all affairs should be handled flexibly in accordance with the principle of “Keep the main but change the others according to the situation”; “Dharma sets no rules; it is ever changing”. Anyone can do whatever they want as long as they are consistent with Buddha-nature which consists of sincerity, kindness, beauty, love, faith and honesty.
The Second Home (New Oasis for Life community) does not practice democracy, but rather Superman philosophy, which means that all affairs are assigned to individuals, each person has the final say over their own work, and anyone who accepts a job has the final say over how it gets done but is also responsible for any and all consequences.
648. 第二家园（生命绿洲）不是任何形式的一种组织，既不是政治组 织，也不是宗教组织。第二家园是由心甘情愿按照《新时代人类八百理念》进行生产和生活的同频者们组成的一个非常松散的乌托邦群体，没有任何组织形式，没有任何可以超越宪章、公约、宪法、法律去制定法规的权力，更没有代表政府任何一级组织处理矛盾冲突和违法乱纪事件的权力。

654. 小作坊式生产方式必然会被淘汰，必然会被流水线式生产方式代 替。小作坊式家庭生活必然会被淘汰，必然会被流水线式第二家园（生命绿洲）生活代替，这是历史的必然。或者说，不管你愿意不愿意，传统家庭生活方式必然会被第二家园生活模式代替，传统小家庭秩序将成为一种愚昧落后生活方式进入历史的垃圾箱。
Small workshop production modes will inevitably be eliminated and replaced with the streamline production mode; small workshop style families will inevitably be eliminated and replaced with the streamline style - the Second Home (New Oasis for Life community) lifestyle.
Whether you approve or not, it is a historical imperative that the traditional family lifestyle will be replaced by the New Oasis for Life mode of life; the traditional small family system will be seen as an ignorant and backward lifestyle to be swept into the garbage bin of history.
Collective life is superior to individual life and is the best lifestyle for self- improvement and self-refinement. If you cannot blend into a collective lifestyle and go through edification and smelting with collective lives, then you will never be able to enter heaven.
To scale the highest realms of life and LIFE, we should resolve to blend ourselves into collective life because without doing this, our dreams and ideals cannot be realized. Mankind has not yet experienced a true collective life. A group of people simply living and working together cannot be counted as a real collective life unless all their members’ basic necessities of life such as food, clothing, shelter, transportation, birth, aging, illness, and death are included as public rights. There is neither private property, private ownership, nor marriages and families; the members live together and share all their blessings and woes; any differences between members in terms of status or material enjoyment would signify a departure from the tenet of collective life.
A perfect and ideal group is made up of excellent individuals; without excellent members, any so-called ideal group would only be a castle in the air and impossible to achieve.
Consciousness determines existence: the state of consciousness will determine the form of LIFE, and that will determine one’s way of life and living conditions.
The combined wisdom of a hundred cobblers can never match that of a master strategist; the thinking of the multitudes can never equal the foresight and sagacity of a saint. Democracy will always be the pursuit of mediocrity, the magical weapon by which to cling to bygone values, and the hidden weapon with which to strangle saints.
Consciousnesses sense territories; they like familiar places but feel uncomfortable in strange ones, so they usually reincarnate into familiar environments; therefore, if you yearn for a place, you must first develop a conscious familiarity with it.
Consciousnesses originate from structures and they react upon structures. Energy is neutral; it comes and goes with changes of structures. Consciousnesses come from nonmaterial structures; different nonmaterial structures give birth to different consciousnesses.
The ultimate goal of life is not to move toward death, but toward another realm, just as the ultimate goal of a fetus is not to grow in the womb, but to enter the human world. Human society is like a big “womb”; one must transit through the passageway which appears as "death" in order to advance to their next realm. Therefore, death is not the end; it is the beginning of another journey of LIFE.
Do not learn too many skills; specializing in one is enough. Even without much expertise or talent, one can lead an easy life, even if they own only one virtue such as honesty, diligence, kindness, sincerity, simplicity, or keeping the faith; life is very short, so it is unnecessary to exhaust yourself staying busy.
Consider water, it takes the form of any container that holds it; it can be round or square; we also possess this property. Soldiers who are trained by different generals will have different fighting abilities and different environments will foster different kinds of people. If you live on a mountain, then you will learn the tweeting of birds; if you live beside water, then you will learn about fish; if you work with ink, then you will stain yourself black; if you often associate with saints, then you will develop agile thinking, sudden enlightenment, and transcendence over vulgarity; if you often mingle with laities, then you will have prejudicial and narrow thinking, and prefer contention and vulgar taste.
Have an idea before you construct a method; when your thoughts change, everything changes accordingly; first have a concept, then carry it out.
Holographic thinking is the highest realm of thinking; it is the thinking of the Greatest Creator and can also be called the thinking of gods, which is unimaginable to ordinary people. Buddha Sakyamuni attained formless thinking, Lao Tzu achieved Taiji thinking, Celestials achieve visualized thinking, Zhuge Liang, Einstein, and the like achieved associative thinking, artists such as Beethoven reached imaginal thinking; common people's thinking is material thinking and religionists' thinking is illusive thinking.
The most significant feature of illusive thinking is that every small step seems to progress forward but it eventually returns to its original starting points; that all sentences from each theory are correct and irrefutable but that they return to where they began after traversing big circles.
Long-standing habits induce mindsets which are very difficult to discard after they form. Everyone’s intellects are covered by invisible meshes of thinking and everyone is weighed down by heavy crosses, though they cannot feel them; even after having felt them, they lack the courage and power to break away from them. Seeing people around them living in this manner sets them at ease and justifies their own behaviors; they become accustomed to their situations, numb, and tolerant of them.
They never think to ask, “Why are things this way?”, or “Is there another, better way?”.
669. 必须要反常思维，否则难逃宿命，要忙世人之所闲，闲世人之所 忙，因为98%芸芸众生是按照宿命程序演绎人生的，他们的人生和生命轨迹是早已按照剧本编好了的；如果想逃脱天地的疆域，想跳出三界不受五行的束缚，想走出必然王国进入自由王国，就绝对不能与芸芸大众的思维和意识同频共振，必须“反其道而行之”。
It is impossible to escape from fate without unconventional thinking; we should work on things that the world ignore and not follow the crowd, because ninety-eight percent of people live according to planned programs. The trajectory of their lives and LIVES have been programmed from screenplays. To avoid the confines of heaven and earth, escape from the bondages of Three Realms and Five Elements and leave the realm of necessity for that of freedom, we must not resonate with the thinking and mindsets of the multitudes; rather, we should act in the opposite way.
In Buddhism, the three realms refer to the following destinations for karmic rebirth:
Kāmaloka is the world of desire, typified by base desires, populated by hellish beings, preta (hungry ghosts), animals, humans and lower demi- gods.
Rūpaloka is the world of form, predominantly free of baser desires, populated by dhyāna-dwelling gods, and a possible rebirth destination for those well practiced in dhyāna.
Arūpaloka is the world of formlessness, a non-corporeal realm populated with four heavens, and a possible rebirth destination for practitioners of the four formlessness stages
Five elements (Wu Xing) is a fivefold conceptual scheme that many traditional Chinese fields use to explain a wide array of phenomena, The "Five Elements" are Fire (火 huǒ), Water (水 shuǐ), Wood (木 mù), Metal or Gold (金 jīn), and Earth or Soil (土 tǔ). In the order of "mutual generation" (相生 xiāngshēng), they are Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water. In the order of "mutual overcoming" (相克 xiāngkè), they are Wood, Earth, Water, Fire, and Meta
What is thought to be impossible with conventional thinking can be solved easily with unconventional thinking. Topology is one kind of unconventional thinking; it can shift positions of space and interconnect closed spaces both internally and externally and makes it impossible to distinguish between interiors and exteriors, just as with Mobius strips, where it is impossible to determine the obverse from the reverse.
Therefore, when you face psychological obstacles, spiritual depression, and difficult situations in life, never consider that your situations are hopeless, because unconventional thinking can guide you to find hope right under your nose.
Unconventional thinking is the magical weapon for us to explore the profound mysteries of the universe and discover their truths; it is the best way for us to find the true meaning of life. As long as we proceed forward steadily, we will eventually enter into a vast world at which time we will be amazed at the nature of the universe and the profound mysteries of LIFE; we will be thrilled that a beautiful future life as a Celestial being awaits us, we will love LIFE and mankind more deeply, and we will cherish this life even more.
As we know from the mystery of the three elements of the universe, consciousness, structure, and energy, our beautiful futures are mainly created not by our hands, but by our brains; that is, by our consciousnesses.
You are the only one who can end your worldly ties; the best way to do this is to offer formless alms-giving.
The most brilliant swordsman lacks a sword; the most supreme mind- dharma lacks a mind; the most profound Buddha dharma lacks dharma; the greatest self lacks self.
Buddha is our deepest intrinsic nature, and this nature is Buddha.
676. 应如是生清净心，不应住色生心，不应住声、香、味、触、法生 心，应无所住而生其心。要无我相，无人相，无寿者相，无众生相，无法相，无非法相，空即色，色即空。
We should cultivate pure and clean minds which do not abide in form, sound, smell, taste, touch, or dharma, but actually abide nowhere; we should have no notions of our self, others, lifetime, living beings, or of Dharma or non-Dharma; form is emptiness and absolute emptiness is form.
The merits and virtues of formless alms-giving outweigh those of seven- treasure alms-giving which are as countless as the grains of sand in the the Ganges, the returns on them are inconceivable. One should give without a mind abiding in form, sound, smell, taste, touch, or Dharma; Bodhisattvas should give alms without a mind abiding in notions of form. Everything with form is unreal; all those who are called Buddha have detached all forms; Bodhisattvas should have no longing or attachment when they practice meritorious virtues.
Those who suggest that Buddha Sakyamuni preached Dharma are either slandering him or do not understand either the essence of his teachings or the gist of Dharma. All dharma is the way of Buddha; the real way of Buddha is free from self, others, living beings, lifetime, and dharma.
679. 一切有为法，如梦幻泡影，如露亦如电，应作如是观。一切无为 法，无法言明它，来时如雷电，去时似梦幻，无虚无实、无声无息、无边无际、无招无式，看不见、摸不着，威力无穷；偷不了、藏不得，变幻莫测，万物都是它，它又不是万物，顺应它，一帆风顺，万年太平；逆恼它，坎坷不顺，祸延未来。
All Intentional Dharma are like dreams, illusions, bubbles, shadows, dew, and lightning; thus should you meditate upon them. No Unintentional Dharma can be expressed clearly; they come like lightning and vanish as illusions. There is neither entity, nonentity, sound, breath, edge or border, fixed rules, nor fixed modes; they are invisible, intangible, tremendously powerful, can neither be hidden nor stolen, and are forever changing; they are not everything yet everything is them.
Conform to them and you will enjoy a smooth and peaceful life for tens of thousands of years; go against them and your future will suffer frustration and disasters.
Buddha Sakyamuni is not the ancestor of Buddha; only the Greatest Creator is.
The Tathagatas' words are truth and correspond to reality; they are ultimate words, neither deceitful nor heterodox. The Dharma that the Tathagata has obtained is neither real nor unreal. The Tathagata has physical eyes, deva-eyes, wisdom eyes, dharma eyes, and buddha eyes. The Tathagata has neither whence (to come) nor whither (to go); thus, he is called the Tathagata.
Everything with form is unreal; if all forms are seen as unreal, then Tathagata, the state of Buddha, will be perceived.
All saints and sages differ because of their unintentional Dharma.
All ways are Dharma and yet all ways are not Dharma; Dharma has no set rules; Dharma always varies according to the situation. So-called Dharma is not Dharma.
685. “我当度众生”，莫作是念。（不要有“我要度众生”这样的念头。） Do not have such thoughts as, “I should liberate all living beings”.
“Those who see me by outward appearance and seek me in sound are treading the heterodox path, and cannot perceive Tathagata.”
Buddha has no mind; Buddha is our most intrinsic nature. With an enlightened consciousness nature is perceived, which is the perception of Buddha.
Without a perception of nature, one will always be bewildered and seek Dharma externally but never find Buddha; without it, even those who can explain the creed of The Twelve Classics only say demonic words; without it, it is impossible to obtain the way of Buddha; without it, even praying for Buddha, reciting sutra, chanting mantras, giving alms, keeping precepts, making vigorous efforts, building or repairing temples, making offerings, freeing captive animals, kowtowing, and burning incense, one still cannot attain Buddhahood.
When Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara attained Prajna Paramita - the enlightened wisdom that can reach the shores of freedom - he realized that all forms, feelings, thoughts, behaviours, and cognitions are only illusions; with this realization, he had moved beyond all trials and suffering.
Form does not differ from emptiness nor does emptiness differ from form. Form itself is emptiness; emptiness itself is form; so too are feelings, thoughts, behaviours, and cognitions.
All Dharma is empty of characteristics; its true nature is no Birth nor Death, no Defilement nor Purity, no Increasing nor Decreasing.
Therefore, in emptiness there is no form, no feelings, thoughts, behaviors, cognition; no eyes, no ears, no nose, no tongue, no body, no mind; no color, no sound, no smell, no taste, no touch, no dharma; no realm of eyes and so forth until no realm of mind consciousness. There is no ignorance and also no extinction of it, and so forth until no old age and death and also no extinction of them. There is no suffering and no origination of suffering; no extinction of suffering and no path of cultivation that leads to no suffering, therefore there is no wisdom of enlightenment, and no attainment of such wisdom either.
Through reliance on Prajna Paramita - the wisdom that can bring us to the shores of freedom - the Bodhisattva is unimpeded in his mind and there is no hang-up in his heart; since there is no impediment and hang-up, he is not afraid and he leaves distorted dream-thinking far behind; ultimately, Nirvana!
Relying on Prajna Paramita - the wisdom that can bring us to the shores of freedom - will help us to attain Anuttara-samyak-sambodhi - Supreme Authentic Wisdom.
Gaté Gaté Paragaté Parasamgaté Bodhi Svaha!
Go, go, go! Go to the other shore with transcendent wisdom. Go to the realm of freedom; go to attain enlightenment; just go!
Life is a journey of LIFE in the human world; what is heard and seen during the journey is an illusion; indulging in the illusion is like living in an abyss of misery, while not getting lost in the illusion takes you to heaven.
697. 梦境就是一个幻象，但我们人很少被梦境所迷；人生就是一个幻 象，为什么我们就迷在其中觉悟不了呢？当我们醒来，梦境消失。当我们的人生结束，人生幻象就消失。
Dreams are illusions, but we rarely indulge them; life is an illusion, so why do we indulge it unconsciously? When we wake up, our dreams disappear; when life ends, our illusion will disappear.
Nature has been polluted, who has polluted it, and who are its worst polluters? Are those who earn the most polluting nature the most? Who has polluted nature more seriously, the poor or the wealthy? Are those who possess the most wealth harming nature the most? The more we take from nature, the more we accumulate a debt which we must pay back. Those who are in debt must pay their debts; no one else can pay debts for them, nor should they be allowed to.
Across thousands of years of this civilization, who have been the most unselfish people? They are Jesus Christ, Buddha Sakyamuni, Lao Tzu, and Mother Teresa; therefore, it is right to follow their teachings.
Being happy is the most important thing in life; to enjoy one day of happiness is to be a celestial for one day. What can lead to happiness? Being philosophical and enlightened!
To unify all dharma, laws, and regulations into the Greatest Creator’s will and all religions, beliefs, schools of thought into one uniform belief system, the world will be one family, a stateless world will be in great harmony; these are the main themes of the New Era.
702. 家庭、国家、政党、宗教的存在是地球环境被污染，全球贫富悬 殊，资源配置不合理，世界动荡不安，人类危机重重，低层老百姓生活艰难，人力资源和物质资源浪费巨大的根源。
Families, states, political parties, and religions are the root causes of the following:
• Pollution of the Earth’s environment
• Global polarization of the rich and the poor
• Unfair and irrational allocation of resources
• A turbulent world with severe crises
• Hardships of working and lower class
• Huge waste of human and material resources
The world should move toward unification and become a global community; it is best to strengthen the role and function of the United Nations continuously for it to eventually become the global government.
Everyone in the world should regard themselves as citizens of Earth; not merely those of regions or countries.
The earth belongs to all its citizens; everyone has the right to migrate and move freely throughout it.
When all is unified into the One, everything can benefit from the power of the One:
• Sky, by attaining the Oneness, became clear;
• Earth, by attaining the Oneness, became peaceful;
• Spirit, by attaining the Oneness, became divine;
• True nature is like an empty valley, and by attaining the Oneness, it became fully productive;
• All things, by attaining the Oneness, became alive;
Saints, by attaining the Oneness, can bring peace and prosperity to the world;
The whole of mankind can have only one government, one belief system, and one order; we can only have one goal, one wish, one path to build, and one road to follow all through our lives because otherwise it will be impossible to achieve clearness, peace, divinity, and fullness.
Excess breeds confusion and heterogeneity causes miscellaneous; Only when all dharma, laws, and regulations are unified into the Greatest Creator’s will and all religions, beliefs, schools of thought are unified into one uniform belief system, and the whole world becomes one family, people can hold the Oneness. With the Oneness everyone will enjoy harmony, peace, auspiciousness, favorable weather, and happy, joyful, free, and blessed lives.
Single people should be chosen as leaders in all regions. Single people are more selfless and open-minded and they are less tied and troubled than those who have their own families. Basically, single leaders are better than those who are in familial relationships because they are more in line with the interests of the general public.
Localism and nationalism are symbols of barbarism and fatuity. No affairs on earth belong to any particular nation or local adherents; rather, they belong to the whole of humanity. The administrations of every region should be exercised, not by the people chosen from among the locals or from among local nations, but by the most outstanding talents selected from the whole of humanity. It will only be when all the talented are not ignored, but rather are entrusted with important missions, that the whole world will be united as one family and the toiling multitudes will obtain freedom and happiness.
All affairs in the world are of concern to all citizens of the Earth. Everyone has their natural right to condemn and intervene in the affairs in any corner of the world, and the same applies to the affairs of all countries, political parties, religions, nationalities, and organizations.
The most important universal value is to believe in the Greatest Creator, which is the cornerstone of all universal values. Faith has nothing to do with religion.
711. 从二零一八年元月一日起人类进入了新时代，即生命禅院时代，其标志是我们已经为人类进入新时代准备好了一个庞大的理论体系，并获得了从实践上解决一切问题的成功经验，同时，国际大家庭从法律的层面也诞生了。除此之外，全世界范围内不愿结婚的单身人士增多，离婚率大幅度上升，各国的入境签证越来越便利化，这是全球进入新时代的重大标 志。
On the first day of 2018, mankind entered the New Era; namely, the Lifechanyuan Era. The symbol of this is that we have prepared a huge theoretical system for mankind to enter the New Era; we have obtained successful experience of resolving all problems in practice. At the same time, the international family has come into being at the legal level. The number of single people who are unwilling to marry has increased worldwide; the divorce rate has risen dramatically; visa policies of many countries are becoming simpler. All these are significant indicators that the world has entered the New Era.
The changes of things are not decided by people's free will; mountains cannot stop spring from coming. When the earth is frozen, everything looks solid and strong, but when the spring wind blows, snow and ice melt and fresh grasses come alive. Families, states, political parties, and religions seem very strong, but even they will inevitably collapse when the wind of the New Era blows; nothing is indestructible.
In the new era, people will need neither management by law nor management by people, but management by Tao, the core of which is taking the way of the Greatest Creator. The core of the Greatest Creator’s way is nature’s way and the core of nature’s way is the harmonious coexistence of humans, society, and nature.
The way for people to get along is to make each other feel happy, joyful, free, and blessed.
The way for people to get along with society is, “the talented will be put to good use and the whole world will be one family”, “no one will pocket anything found on the ground and doors are not bolted at night”. People share bliss and shoulder misfortune together; affairs are coordinated globally and all resources are shared.
The way for people to get along with nature is to keep mountains green, the sky blue, mountains and rivers beautiful, soil rich, water clean and clear with abundant fish and shrimp, to protect wild animals from harm, poultry and livestock from abuse, with singing birds and fragrant flowers everywhere, and favorable weather will abound throughout the year.
In the New Era, Lifechanyuan funeral ceremonies are implemented: the body is cremated and the ashes are scattered across rivers, lakes, seas, green mountains, and fields; this dispenses with the building of tombs, the keeping of ashes, the establishment of memorials, and all marks and traces of the deceased.
In the New Era, no one will celebrate birthdays, but only natural festivals such as Spring Festival, Qingming Festival (Tomb sweeping day), Mid- Autumn Festival, and Water-splashing Festival, and there are no celebrations or festivals related to gods, Buddhas, Celestial beings, people, states, political parties, religions, or militaries, including Christmas, Buddha's Birthday, and so on.
In the New Era, people will no longer exchange gifts; they will no longer hold celebrations or receive gifts for relocations, promotions, birthdays, or other affairs.
In the New Era, churches, Buddhist temples, mosques, and Taoist abbeys will no longer be built.
In the New Era, the interests of all humankind will be above those of the local and the individual; personal and local interests will be subjected to the interests of all humankind.
Let the talented bring their genius into full play and make the best use of everything; let everyone work and have shelter.
Saints manage affairs by reducing interference and by civilizing people wordlessly.
Do not honor the virtuous, so that the people will not fight.
Prize not rare objects, so that the people shall not steal.
Shut out from sight the things of desire, So that the people's hearts shall not be disturbed.
The perfect saints abandon wisdom；the greatest benevolence abandons righteousness；the highest artifice abandons profits.
Tao manifests itself in nature, and renounces all ethical sermons.
Accomplish but claim no credit.
For he who attains Tao,
In dwelling, he is wise to choose the pure land,
In heart, he goes deep into peace and the profound, In dealing with others, he is sincere and kind,
In words, he is honest and trustworthy,
In governing, he is good at handling with fair,
In work and life, he is able to utilize people’s ability, In action, he is aware of grabbing the best timing.
Fill your hall with gold and jade, but you will be unable to safeguard them; arrogance with wealth and power sows the seeds of one’s own downfall. Retire after accomplishing; this conforms to Tao - Natural Law.
By the existence of things, we profit; by the non-existence of things, we are served.
Those who value the world as themselves may be entrusted with the government of the world; those who love the world as themselves may be entrusted to care for the world.
You will reach that with which you resonate:
Those who resonate with Tao will unite with Tao; Those who resonate with virtue will attain virtue;
Those who resonate with pessimism and negativity will fail; Those who resonate with the devil will be welcomed by Him.
Good runners leave no tracks; good speeches leave no flaws for attack; good reckoners make use of no counters; well-shut doors make use of no bolts yet cannot be opened; well-tied knots make use of no rope yet cannot be untied. Sages are good at helping people display their talents fully; therefore no one is deserted. They are good at making the best use of things; therefore nothing is useless.
The divine method for managing the world is to follow Tao and not to try to control anything through human interference. He who makes it spoils it; he who holds it loses it.
Eliminate extremes, extravagance, and arrogance.
Superior virtue has no intention to be virtuous and thus is virtue. Inferior virtue cannot let go of virtue and thus is not virtue.
With the presences of Tao, virtue need not to be mentioned;
With the presence of virtue, benevolence need not to be mentioned;
With the presence of benevolence, righteousness need not to be mentioned;
With the presence of righteousness, courtesy need not to be mentioned (courtesy mainly refers to rules, laws, and regulations).
There is no greater disaster than insatiability and no greater fault than excessive desire.
When governments are gentle and clean, their people become honest and loyal, but when they control strictly and severely, their people become cunning and discontented; good fortune lies within bad and bad fortune lurks within good.
The way of Tao benefits all but harms none; the way of saints accomplishes but does not contend.
In the New Era, everyone needs health-cultivation to be free from disease to the greatest extent; health-cultivation needs the cultivation of essence, qi, spirit, and body. Before health cultivation, we need mind cultivation; before mind cultivation, we need virtue cultivation; before virtue cultivation, we need to enter Tao. Those who are good at health- cultivation can offer preventative treatments for diseases:
• Less speech nourishes the internal qi
• Preventing a distraught mind nourishes the spirit qi
• Mild taste nourishes the blood qi
• Avoiding anger nourishes the lung qi
• Eating moderately nourishes the stomach qi
• Less thought nourishes the liver qi
• Less desire nourishes the heart qi
• Less lust nourishes the essence qi
Before you can cultivate your body, you first must calm your mind and be free from fuss, worry, attachments, delusions, lust, greed, and indulgence; settle your inner spirit while keeping your desire out.
• Overeating causes one to become overweight
• Indulgence in lust makes the spirit turbid
• Excessive thoughts disturb our minds
• A mind without peace prevents sharp spiritual perceptions, without which, Tao cannot be attained
• A troubled heart will leave us exhausted
• Excessive physical exertion will leave us feeble
• An overweary spirit will make us weak
• Expending too much qi will finish us
• Being free from anxiety and stress will allow our spirit to be sufficient
• Speaking less will allow our qi to be sufficient
• Being free from lust will allow our essence to be sufficient
• Meat-eaters have thick auras; vegetarians have clean auras; grain- eaters are wise; qi-eaters possess high spirits.
745. 怒则气上、喜则气缓、悲则气消、恐则气下、寒则气收、热则气 泄、惊则气乱、劳则气耗、思则气结、静则气生。久视伤血、久卧伤气、久坐伤肉、久立伤骨、久行伤筋。
• Anger drives qi up
• Joy smoothens qi
• Sadness vanishes qi
• Fear lowers qi
• Coldness restrains qi
• Heat allows qi to escape
• Shock scatters qi
• Overexertion expends qi
• Thinking blocks qi
• Silence generates qi
• Watching for too long hurts the blood
• Lying in bed for too long hurts qi
• Sitting for too long hurts the flesh
• Standing for too long hurts the bones
• Walking for too long hurts the tendons
Eat moderately, sleep regularly, do not overwork or overuse your mind or body. Those who are frightened and have excessive thoughts will harm their spirits; those who are very happy and joyous will be too distracted to preserve their spirits; those who are sorrowful will block their flow of qi; those who are angry will be confused so not cured; those who have fears will not restrain and quiet their spirits.
747. 平易恬淡，则忧患不能入，邪气不能袭。导筋骨形全、剪情欲神 全、靖言语福全。目不欲视不正之色，耳不欲听丑秽之言，鼻不欲向膻腥之气，口不欲向毒刺之味，心不欲谋欺诈之事。
Remaining calm and indifferent to fame and fortune will prevent misery from approaching and evil from invading; physical exercise will keep your body healthy; reducing your lust will preserve your spiritual health; talking less will maintain your blessings sufficiently. Guard your eyes from improper sights, your ears from improper words, your nose from foul odors, your mouth from strong flavors and poison, and your mind from considering deceptive actions.
When you love someone, do not love them too much; when you hate someone, do not hate them too much. Keep fewer words in your mouth, less food in your stomach, fewer thoughts in your mind, and get less sleep at night. Excessive sleep makes your spirit turbid, frequent drunkenness makes your qi scatter, excessive sweating hurts your blood, and exhaustion of strength damages your body. Moving continuously without resting disturbs your qi and frightens your spirit.
Ascending to extreme heights may scare you out of your wits.
● Remain undisturbed, whether you are granted favour or subjected to humiliation, and your liver will be peaceful
● Remain deferential and grateful whether in stillness or motion, and your heart will be calm
● Eat moderately, and your spleen will not leak
● Practice pranayama and less speech, and your lungs will be sound
● Desiring less and staying indifferent to fame and gain will keep your kidneys healthy
● Eat before you are hungry, but stop before you are full; overeating harms your spleen but hunger harms your stomach, and excessive thirst hurts your blood but overdrinking hurts your qi
● Never overeat when hungry or over-drink when thirsty to avoid food expansion and hurting your heart and lungs
● Prevent the wind from blowing against your back, for no one enjoys longevity when the back of their head is constantly blown upon.
Anger weakens your qi and illnesses will invade when your qi is weak; thoughts damage your spirit, and your heart is prone to be tied when your spirit is tired. Avoid extremes of joy and sorrow; eat a balanced diet; do not get drunk at night; and most importantly, never allow yourself to feel rage in the morning. Do not see, hear, speak, or think about evil or improperness. Purify your heart and restrict your desires, empty your brain, and then attain quietness in motion. Let your heart be at ease and your kidneys at rest, and lead restful lives.
751. 肝精不固，目眩无光；肺精不固，肌肉瘦弱；肾精不固，神气减少;脾精不固，齿发浮落。凡有动作，不可过劳，过劳则损气；不可不动，不动则气血凝滞。无劳汝形，无摇汝精，乃可以长生。目无所见，耳无所 闻, 心无所知，汝神将守形，形乃长生。
● Consolidate your liver’s essence or your eyes will be dizzy and lack lustre;
● Consolidate your lungs’ essence or your muscles will atrophy and be weak;
● Consolidate your kidneys’ essence or your spirit and qi will be weak;
● Consolidate your spleen’s essence or your hair will fall out and your teeth will decay;
● Do not overwork, for that will damage your qi;
● Do not remain immobile, for that will coagulate your blood and block your qi;
● Enjoy a long life by not overusing your body or draining your essence;
● Let your eyes look without seeing, your ears listen without hearing and keep your mind from thinking excessively to avoid overconsuming your spirit; then your spirit will guard your body and give you longevity.
There are eight unlivable places:
1. Amid dirt and clutter
2. Amid loud noise
3. Amid negativity and trouble
4. Amid hustle and bustle
5. High, elevated places
6. Amid gloom and dampness
7. Amid poor ventilation
8. Around graves and temples
Those who value their lives do not harm their bodies by over-nourishing themselves even when they have wealth and rank, nor do they exhaust their bodies for profit in order to rise above poverty and low status. We can often shake our desires off to attain calmness and purify our minds to achieve serene spirits. Overusing our brains, worrying, having sorrow, sadness, excessive joy, fear, endless anger, anxiety over what has been wished, and disharmony between Yin and Yang all hurt people.
Water has its source, so surely it flows far; Trees have their roots, so surely they are leafy;
Houses have their bases, so surely their pillars stand upright; People have their essence, so surely they live long lives.
755. 枕不可过高，高令肝缩，过低又令肺缩。目之泪肝漏，鼻之涕肺 漏，口之唾肾漏，外汗心漏，盗汗小肠漏，寝而涎脑漏，梦与鬼交神漏，淫欲者身漏。神满不思睡；气满不思食；精满不思欲。
● Your pillow must be neither too high nor too low; being too high causes your liver to shrink, but being too low causes your lungs to shrink.
● Tears from your eyes indicate leaks from your liver
● Mucus from your nose indicates leaks from your lungs
● Saliva from your mouth indicates leaks from your kidneys
● Sweating while awake indicates leaks from your heart
● Sweating while asleep indicates leaks from your small intestines
● Drooling while asleep indicates leaks from your brain
● Dreaming of intimacy with ghosts indicates leaks of your spirit
● Lustful people show leaks from their own bodies.
● One with a full spirit wants no sleep, one with full qi wants no food, and one with full essence wants no lust.
The taboo of a day is overeating, the taboo of a month is getting extraordinarily drunk, the taboo of a year is excessive work and rage, and the taboo of a lifetime is being often bullied in the early morning. Embrace the One, keeping peace while neither worrying nor scheming.
Sadness causes streams of tears, bitterness causes your nose to run, anger generates goiter, and rage causes deep-rooted ulcers; your qi follows what your heart desires and gathers where your heart stays, which can generate anything; therefore, great people restrain their grief and bitterness and refrain from anger.
Lack of physical bonding between sexual partners, Yin and Yang, causes diseases due to blood stasis and qi stagnation; therefore, those who remain celibate and abstinent are prone to be sickly and short-lived, while excessive indulgence in lust will damage their lives. Rich food smooths the intestines but also causes phlegm; breakfasts should be mild and early, lunches should be rich and full, and dinners should be small; following these rules, one can have a long and healthy life.
Lead a leisurely and unrestrained life with neither cravings nor painstaking effort; feel content no matter where you are or what you are doing.
Without overusing your kidneys, your essence is preserved; without overusing your body, your qi is preserved; without overusing your heart, your spirit is preserved. When your essence, qi, and spirit are perfectly preserved, you will become naturally immortal.
It is no disgrace to be poor and low, but it is to flatter and beg others when you are; it is no honor to gain wealth and rank, but it is to benefit the world with what you have gained.
Gaining fame and wealth improperly invites fortune to become misfortune, but enduring hardships and poverty that are the hardest to bear invites bitterness to become sweetness.
Misfortune comes very easily from wealth and rank, we must stay loyal, honest, and humble to avoid great trouble; fortunes and blessings are destined, we must remain thrifty and simple to extend their time with us.
Everyone is born with a conscience; once we lose it, then we would be no higher than beasts. Saints and sages teach people the right way; by deviating from it, people will always go through thistles and thorns.
There are no fools in the world, so how can one deceive others? Suffering is everywhere, so how can one enjoy leisure alone?
Material wealth causes wise people to lose their wills, but foolish people to sin more; in either case, passing the material wealth that one has accumulated on to their children does irreparable harm.
People might not encounter difficulties, but they should not forget about the existence of adversity; flukes happen, but people should not keep them on their minds.
It is sinful to fly flags and beat drums for the wrong routes.
People need to be down to earth when performing meritorious deeds because remaining even slightly lustful for fame will misdirect them toward achieving the wrong goals. Preaching and self-cultivation should be based on non-utilitarian thought; if one cares more for success or material gain, then they will descend into vulgarity.
With a head that is constantly clear, one can avoid heavenly punishments; with a spotlessly clean conscience, one can untie the divine mesh.
A merciful attitude is the root that sprouts to make all living beings survive and grow and the moral courage to refrain from doing wrong can be a tower of strength for the world; therefore, a man of noble character bears neither to harm an insect nor to embezzle a single penny; this way, they benefit and set a noble spirit for all humans and natural beings.
To find the truth when fame and fortune disappear, you will reduce your cravings; to find the cause of your suffering from adversity, you will stop your complaining.
Heaven offers small blessings to make you feel proud before sending serious disasters; do not rejoice excessively when they come because the important thing is how well you handle them. Heaven also offers small setbacks to admonish you before sending great fortunes; do not feel discouraged when they come because the important thing is how well you survive them.
How long are our lives? Fighting with others for fame and fortune wastes our lives which are as short as the sparks from flint stones knocking against iron; how big can it be, the world where people compete with each other? It is tiny as a snail’s antenna in such a vast universe.
When we accept that successes and failures co-exist within our lives, it becomes unnecessary to pursue successes too fervently; when we acknowledge that life and death are each other’s roots, it becomes unnecessary to take all means to protect our health.
Those who lead easy and wealthy lives should learn the pain of the poor and underprivileged and those who are young and strong should understand the bitterness of the old and feeble.
Do not reproach others for small faults; do not reveal their private matters; do not bear grudges against them. Refraining from doing those three things helps to cultivate one’s moral character and to avoid disaster.
Those who make others happy have rich hearts; those who make others joyful have rich spirit; those who make the others feel blessed have material wealth.
The pursuit of life leads to endless troubles but the pursuit of death leads to endless benefits.
Those who oppress the poor insult their creator but those who are kind to them honor theirs.
Laying good foundations in advance is better than setting up tents and building houses hastily on sandy beaches; improving the soil first is better than sowing seeds in barren fields for quick results.
• Do not affect the interests of the group for the sake of a small self interest
• Do not favor yourself by pretending to cater to publicity
• Do not contrast others' shortcomings to your advantages
• Do not envy others' advantages over your shortcomings
• Do not use power and authority to bully orphans and widows
• Do not willfully kill animals to satisfy your taste
• Do not block individual’s opinions because of group doubts
• Do not reject others’ advice because of your own stubbornness
• Do not heed only one side in case you are deceived by the wicked
• Do not be wayward and driven by anger
Good fortunes cannot be invited intentionally, maintaining a happy mood is the right way to invite them; disasters cannot be shunned by flukes, discarding hatred and grudges from one’s mind is the correct way.
Gaining and consuming too much brews disaster; abnormal acts forebode misfortune.
The faithful never yearn for blessings, but heaven guides them to attain them unintentionally. The insidious rack their brains to avoid calamities studiously, but heaven deprives them of their spirit and strength to meet disaster as they attempt to escape.
If you have done nothing to trouble your conscience, then you should not fear late-night knocks on your door; nothing can be concealed, for gods are watching from just above your head.
Those who do not want misfortunes in their lives should ensure that nothing amiss lurks in their darkest closets. Live in silt but remain unstained; know about scheming but never scheme.
The beauty of all things is the masterwork of the Greatest Creator, from which we can feel His love.
Merits and mistakes do not offset each other; undoubtedly, one needs to pay for their wrongdoings regardless of their great merits.
Behaving in a well-educated, self-cultivated, and self-restrained way is a compulsory course throughout one’s life.
Cosmic geometry tells us that the world in which we live is not Euclidean; that is, the circles of Euclidean geometry are no longer circles and parallel lines may eventually intersect or diverge. The sums of the three inner angles of triangles are not 180º; therefore you should never negate any ideology which you take as unnatural or unreasonable based on your personal experience; different mental realms lead to different understandings.
The wave-particle duality teaches us that the nature of things or the way that they move depends on the observer’s consciousness and that different consciousnesses create different realities. It can be concluded that heaven and hell must exist just as rich and poor people do, from which we know that these 800 Values for New Era Human Beings will bring peace and happiness to everyone.
Superstring theory seems to bridge the incompatible gap between general relativity and quantum theory by arguing that strings do not move in normal three-dimensional space, but rather in higher dimensions of space which we cannot imagine. Our past concepts about space were wrong; it is not limited to three dimensions, but could have as many as ten, or even twenty-six of them. Paradoxes and contradictions always reconcile themselves in certain ways eventually, but we can never reconcile them unless we improve our understanding and do not cling to theories of so-called "absolute truth".
The universe is a hologram, and humans and the universe are one. The vibration of a butterfly’s wings in Alaska can eventually lead to a storm in the Cape of Good Hope, so no one should ignore their own little efforts; someone's small cough might also cause heaven to shake.
Why are scientists unable to establish a Unified Field Theory? Because they only recognize four forces: the weak force, the strong force, gravity, and magnetism, but not the other four forces: the structural force (the force attracted by the structure of a material or a non-material), the repulsive force, the conscious force, and the spiritual force. This shows that science and religion both have blind spots and that the only way to see them is through holographic theory.
When your toe steps onto a thorn, your brain should sense it instantly; if it does not, that is not because there is no thorn, but rather because your brain is either too dull, too slow, or is malfunctioning. The world is about to change greatly and sensitive brains have already sensed this; if yours has not, then you must change your thinking and reposition your outlook on life, your sense of values, your worldview, and your understanding and awareness of LIFE!
When you believe that you are right, then you are already wrong.
There are eight Ways in the mortal world:
• The Way of the Greatest Creator
• The Way of Gods
• The Way of Buddhas
• The Way of Celestial beings
• The Way of Humans
• The Way of Animals and Plants
• The Way of Ghosts
• The Way of Devils
Without ending your worldly ties, you will have to reincarnate and come back; without paying off your debts, you will have to return.
If you are confused and unable to find answers from humanity’s historical experiences and accumulated knowledge, then read “the book without words”！
It is said that “The core of truth is in one sentence, while falseness is spread over millions of books”. Actually, one sentence is too long, the core of truth is only one word: NATURE.
（Note: here “NATURE” means the characteristics of LIFE’s nonmaterial structures.）
These 800 Values for New Era Humans are an open system; time and space change ceaselessly, new thoughts, new ideas, and new methods emerge endlessly, and these 800 Values are subject to constant updating and perfection. This is the third revision; with the developments of the times, that which should be added will be and that which should be deleted will be. We shall never follow the beaten track and the old routine or stick to obsolete ideas stubbornly, and we shall never impose limitations. While Deiform Buddha is in the human world, he will take charge to add and delete; when Deiform Buddha passes away, saints in the world will take charge and continue to do so. No one else may add to it or delete from it because that could compromise its nature of holographic order.
