I Have an Ideal

Xue Feng
Lifechanyuan: http://www.lifechanyuan.org

(Translated by Transn Ltd. and Edited by Kaer)

Following the footprints of immortals, sages, oracles and saints, I have crossed and trekked numerous treacherous mountains and rivers. Roaming all through the wilderness of soul, I have been spreading the message of the Greatest Creator. The wishes of god and Buddha and the expectations of oracles and saints have converged to form my ideal, which is as clear and bright as the shining sun and can be food of thought for you to meditate over.

Human beings have been trekking along a long path soaked with blood. Jesus and Sakyamuni have revealed to us that in the universe there are many higher spaces of LIFE and have earnestly and tirelessly admonished us not to go astray from the great road of LIFE. Numberless immortals, sages, oracles and saints have exerted their utmost effort for the happiness of mankind. Their souls are still shining brightly over us, warning us not to act against the law of nature and wishing us to live a happy life.However, blinded by the dense fog of “civilization”, mankind has been straying further and further away from the great road…

I want to kindle a beacon of hope to light up the endless darkness, bringing mankind a ray of hope. I want to create an oasis out of the vast and isolated desert, offering an auspicious and harmonious habitat for LIFE on earth. I want to build a land of spirit and soul out of the boundless ocean of flaunty material prosperity, leading to the land those people who yearn towards the Greatest Creator, love LIFE and nature, and possess beautiful human nature and soul and making them eternally severed from the abyss of sufferings. I will shepherd them safely to the Thousand-Year World to enjoy the wonderful time of the millennium.

The people favored by god and Buddha are still miserably shackled in spirit and soul. In this bustling world overrun with desire for material acquisition, people with a purer and better heart are more prone to spiritual and psychological tortures, and cannot afford even a moment of peace and quiet. Every place reeks of putrid smells. What meet the eyes are wickedness and evils that have gone unpunished. Man’s tremendous amount of legal articles and religious teachings are powerless to avert the depravity of morality and the prevalence of wickedness. The viciously misleading evil soul and the junk thought have taken up the throne of truth.

Despotism has not only caused the loss of personal and spiritual freedom for the governed but also has caused the governing class to be trapped in the quagmire of desperation, without any hope to obtain the true freedom of LIFE.

I want to tell people that the plight of mankind does of lie in the material aspect but in the spiritual aspect. The wasteland of spirit and soul is the real source of human suffering. Seeking the homestead for spirit and soul is an urgency for mankind. The blind pursuit of material acquisition is only analogous to quenching one’s thirst with poisoned wine or stopping water from boiling by scooping it up and pouring it back. Thus such acts will cause the ruin of not only the earth but mankind itself.

An era is a demoniac era if the dignity of a person is determined by the amount of money he has earned and the social position he has attained and if the value of man is not measured by his moral character and good deeds. A society is an evil society if it allows its subjects to become upstart through speculation and plundering instead of getting rich with honest and diligent labor. A government is a despotic and satanic government if it spares no effort to force-out new thinking, attempting to lock people in an ignorant and barbarian and savage world. A nation will be one void of wisdom and oriented toward insanity and destruction if it does not advocate dedication and love but blindly instigates its people to use violence.

Man’s worry originates partly from ignorance and partly from selfishness. Because of ignorance, we have invited demons in but shut the door against god and Buddha. Because of selfishness, we have chosen wickedness but abandoned righteousness. A lot of good ideals and kind moralities are often snuffed out in the cradle. The desolation of soul is the optimum soil to breed junk thought and religious plague.

Today people are engulfed in information. Television, networks, newspapers and magazines, books, and lectures are infusing mountains of information into us, far more than we can digest, thus causing the indigestion, malnutrition, and ill health. The pursuit of knowledge has become a morbid thirst. The more we attempt to swallow down unthinkingly, the less we understand. Various media have become the fertile soil to cultivate ignorance and manic and blind adherence.

Having no beliefs, no principles, no wisdom, and no spiritual perception, those literati have made up rancid articles under the pretense of maintaining stability, advocating reform, carrying forward culture, inheriting legacies, publicizing morality, and promoting benevolence, and under the disguise of adhering to “belief”, cultivating oneself, pursuing freedom, and fighting despotism…They have fabricated so much cultural garbage and so many spiritual drugs that it is impossible to clean them all up. The roughly manufactured scum has become our daily food for thought, which has directly distorted our values, destroyed our human environment, and polluted our pure heart.

Having no beliefs, no principles, no wisdom, and no spiritual sense, those literati hangmen worship those rancid articles as classics under the pretense of maintaining stability, advocating reform, carrying forward culture, inheriting legacies, publicizing morality,and promoting benevolence, and under the disguise of adhering to “belief”,cultivating oneself, pursuing freedom, and fighting despotism… As for those works of wisdom, which shine resplendently with thought, they look down upon them as “heresies” and wielded their cultural butcher knife toward them without hesitation…

The Chinese people, on the one hand you have been heaving sighs that China has become a land deserted by the Greatest Creator, but have you on the other hand acquired the broadness of mind to include great wisdom? Can you recognize it when great wisdom really “descends from heaven”?

I have an ideal that the Greatest Creator may enter China and the human world, that Christianity and Buddhism may regain their prevalence here, and that humanity may be restored on the beautiful land.

When conspiracy and tricks prevail over truth, justice is taunted, enthusiasm meets with contempt, reverence for the Greatest Creator is regarded as ridiculous, oppression and bully are viewed as inviolable power, the hoodwinked masses are meanwhile branded as ignorant,freedom is slandered, life is trampled, right and wrong are reversed, black and white are confused, and good and evil people mix together, then in such situations we have no choice but to search the source of LIFE. Only in this way can we pierce through the indistinct murk and see the light. Only in this way can we steady the steer in the turbid and turbulent waves and ultimately reach the ocean of LIFE.

In this unusual time of superficial prosperity, when actually crises are lurking everywhere, we are not yet in the position to sing praises of the virtue or merits. At a time when the journey is rough and treacherous, flattery and conservativeness cannot salvage us. Now it is not yet the time when “the bank of injustice” has gone bankrupt completely. Any non-action and dawdling will only speed up the approach of “doomsday”. We will only eventually lose our beautiful homestead and splendid future if we are only capable of destruction and are incapable of construction, if we don’t know how to repay other people’s favors and are only bent on vengeance, and if we only want to acquire from others and do not know how to dedicate to others.

For many centuries, man’s blind behaviors have dug out an abyss, which can engulf us at any moment and thus should be filled up. The sooner it is leveled up, the better it would be.

Reverence for the Greatest Creator and adherence to his road is our only hope, because only in front of the Greatest Creator can we have equal human dignity; because we should worship the Greatest Creator so that our mind can possess soul, our knowledge be transformed into wisdom. And only in this way can we understand the meaning of LIFE and embark on the great road of LIFE.

You may lock yourself up in the ivory tower, lose yourself in the piles of broken papers, and engross yourself in the so-called academic research, thus placing yourself outside the social issues. In so doing, you seem to have entered a serene heaven. However, can you expect any egg to remain intact if the nest is overturned? Poke your head inside a cave,leaving your hindquarter exposed and fancying that what is not seen does not exist. Can you derive from your research any great achievements that may do any good to humankind?

The unrealistic teaching or “truth”that blindly preaches pursuit of happiness of future life is absurd and wicked. A person always wearing a smile is relentless at heart; a person always with tears is cruel at heart.

Children are suffering starvation and cannot afford education; the poverty-stricken have no money to treat their diseases. However, we are manufacturing various kinds of luxury products, and building one after another lifeless skyscrapers. Isn’t this a mockery and blasphemy against LIFE?

If our neighbors have no freedom, we ourselves cannot obtain complete freedom. If our brothers are suffering starvation, we cannot swallow the dainty food in our mouths. If people in the remote areas are crying, we will not be able to enjoy quietly the comfort and luxury of big cities.

I have an ideal. I will lead those who truly yearn towards the Greatest Creator to Lifechanyuan, and transform the jarring hullabaloo into a fraternal movement, and play a convivial symphony of LIFE.

I firmly believe that mankind can certainly walk out of the dark canyon and the wasteland of spirit, and enter an unprecedentedly beautiful field. I firmly believe that soul will prevail over flesh and that people will eventually obtain the freedom of body and mind and the serenity of LIFE.

This is not a golden fantasy for the remote future. The majestic tides are surging with mighty momentum. Among their broad bosoms are contained colorful gems that can decorate man’s life and make it more noble and beautiful. When the unexpected supernatural incident comes,the mysterious power shall strike people’s heartstrings, the vast fields will take on the splendid coating, the polluted rivers will become clear and pure again, the turbid sky will be changed into expanses of colorful clouds, and the free rhythm will reverberate in each inch of the land.

Eternal virtue remains with Jesus Christ!

Supreme wisdom is ascribed to Sakyamuni!

Eternal glory belongs to the Greatest Creator!

202. Only God can distinguish between right and wrong; our merits and demerits are judged by Tao.



203. If you are sincere and genuine, then you will get what you want; if you have an unpeaceful frame of mind, then you will get what you do not want.



204.Let nature take its course, do not hold inordinate ambitions; everything has merits and demerits, do not pursue perfection; when surrounded by a thousand rivers, drink only enough to quench your thirst.



205. Difficulties are overcome by easy things; great things are accomplished by the details.



206. Examine yourself in silence, but never accuse others’ of having faults during chats; it is good to be benevolent but much more important to not be evil.

249. Everything has its limit, and when that limit is exceeded, it will be transformed into something else; therefore, know the limits.



250. With psychic energy, mountains will flourish with trees, water will brim with fish and turtles, the sky will produce good weather, the earth will abound with a wide variety of LIFE forms, and people will show endless charm.



251. Without a good program (system) as the guarantor, good will and dedication will vanish like soap bubbles. This is why having the right life mode is of great importance; moral preaching alone does not work.



252. Avoid those who idle about and have nothing to do; they will weave colorful tales, but come up with no constructive ideas.



253. Beauty dwells in symmetry and proportion; it also dwells in simple and unsophisticated minds.



254. Every knack is deeper than the sea, so admire craftsmanship.



255. The more that people look up to you, the more important it is to keep yourself humble and sober-minded; the higher the position you have, the more important it is to remain modest and cautious. Otherwise, you encourage disaster.



256. Only as the lowest people have dignity, and a nation has dignity.



257. Those who help others, help themselves; those who harm others, harm themselves; those who cheat others, cheat themselves. This principle is only understood by people with great wisdom; if you cannot understand this principle, then you are an ignorant person with a blind soul.



258. The energy level of food is related to the consciousness of the eater; gratitude will maximize it.



259. To be truly noble, you must be humble; the bright road sometimes looks dark and the road leading forward sometimes curves backward.

343. Lower levels of LIFE serve higher levels LIFE, and all LIVES serve the Greatest Creator.



344. There are 36 eight-diagram tactics in the universe. LIFE has innumerable traps; it is only by escaping from the traps of LIFE that can we enjoy the freedom of LIFE.



345. Continue to die and continue to be newly born, the meaning of LIFE is in it; continue to destroy and continue to create, the meaning of life is in it.



346. The way to reach a more beautiful LIFE space is to pay your debts, end your ties, accumulate merits and virtues in heaven, and perfect your LIFE structure.



347. The most wonderful experience is when your consciousness is in the "zero state", because it is only then that you can feel everything.



348. A LIFE that close to death is stiff; a LIFE full of vitality is soft.



349. Be kind to all living beings and they will be kind to us.



350. Nothing is worth recalling with nostalgia at the cost of LIFE; everything is a flash in the pan, floating smoke, and passing clouds.



351.The most lofty and greatest thing in life is to explore LIFE!

The most significant thing in life is to research LIFE!

The most joyful thing in life is to revere LIFE!

The most peaceful thing in life is to march forward along the trajectory of LIFE!

355. When everything is a dilemma and indecisive, it is better to follow the drive of heart rather than brain analysis.

359. The quality of a LIFE lies in its structure; the more perfect it is, the higher the quality, the better the space, and the greater that LIFE’s freedom will be.



360. The best end-result of LIFE is to live in the back garden of the Greatest Creator - the Celestial Islands Continent.



361. The purpose of LIFE’s evolution and transmigration is to maintain the dynamic balance between the ethics of the universe and the entire LIFE of the universe.

362.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 to the debt that each owes the other but an inverse ratio to the amount of favor that each has done for the other.



363. If one leaves this life with an unrealized wish, then they will be reincarnated into the human world another time.



364. An outline of standards and revelations of the transmigration of LIFE:

(1)People with the utmost benevolence will become Buddhas

(2)People with the greatest love will become Super Celestial Beings

(3)People with the greatest happiness will become Deity Celestial Beings

366. Higher levels of LIFE have fewer conflicts with their surroundings; lower levels of LIFE have more conflicts with their surroundings.



367. The core element of a higher levels of LIFE’s consciousnesses is love; high levels of LIVES contain much love in their consciousnesses; low levels of LIVES contain little love in their consciousnesses.

369. “The law of the jungle” and “The survival of the fittest” from theory of evolution are portrays of the animal world, but real people do not agree with it.

371. Genetic engineering is extremely dangerous because it is likely to create monsters and demons.



372. Biological robots will emerge eventually; they will bring blessings to some people but misfortunes to others.



373. LIVES travel through transmigration and transformation; humans might ascend to celestial beings, but also degrade animals as well.



374. LIFE has eight secrets; to understand them, you must build your merits and virtues to exchange.



375.What does not exist in consciousness does not exist in LIFE. Therefore,make the best use of time to expand your space of LIFE. Do not be nostalgic too much for the Human World; it is only a flash in the pan. Try your best to be familiar with the place you yearn for and be a sensible person.



376. The nature of LIFE is soul. The nature of soul is consciousness, so consciousness is LIFE.



377. The more simple the more attention should be paid to things; the closer people are to us, the more they will form the joys and sorrows of our lives.



378. How can a LIFE achieve eternal bliss?

The answer is simple:Only self-consistent



379.Freedom symbolizes heaven, control means hell.




380. We must make full use of our bodies; If we do not, we are rebelling against the Greatest Creator; it would be evil to pray for what our bodies do not have.



381. Plant roots wherever you live; treat that place as your home, protect its environment, and create beauty there.



382. Freedom is supreme and priceless; it is the feature of LIVES in heaven. The degree of freedom shows the level of a LIFE. The greater the degree of freedom is, the closer to heaven that LIFE is; the smaller the degree of freedom is, the closer to hell it is.



383.Individuals cause their own lack of freedom and groups cause their own lack of freedom. If non-freedom is caused by a group and one wants to be away from that group, then the only thing to do is to escape; find a free place to go. If you can not find a free place on Earth, then flee to heaven.



384. Do not sympathize for or commiserate with the weak; they are parasites.

When you are tangled with the weak, they will absorb your energy and your life will eventually succumb to a tragic end.

Who are the weak? The sick, disabled, ill, and poor are not, but those who constantly syphon your energy are.




385. When many people's consciousnesses resonate in common, they live in the same world. Heaven and hell are the real worlds created by the people whose consciousnesses resonate in common, like everything on Earth is created by the “people”together who have been to the Earth .




386. All changes in the universe have reasons. All changes of nature are the results of quantitative changes. There will be no qualitative change without the accumulation of quantitative changes. Quantitative change reaches the limit will inevitably occur qualitative leap.




387. As long as we treat everyone and everything objectively and fairly, then we will not waste time on hating or avenging, but only concentrate on having our own futures and sublimating ourselves.




388. What kinds of faith will lead to what kinds of spiritual states and thus mental activities.What kinds of mental activities will lead to what kinds of words and actions.What kinds of words and actions will lead to what kinds of results and ways of life.Faith is the navigator of life; different faiths will achieve different lives.what kind of faiths will lead to what kind of lives.




389. Arrogance comes from ignorance, this is the touchstone of testing whether a person is rich from inside out.




390. Character is what one inherits from their past life.Character is not inherited from one’s parents.Character will determine a person’s overall development direction.Character is nature, the original feature, which is the potential energy of consciousness that one hardly can handle or control by oneself. It is discribed as "leopard cannot change his spots".

Your character decides what kind of life you will achieve.




391. 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.




392. If you do not die with a human heart, then you will not ascend to the nature of a celestial; if you do not abandon the human world, then you cannot ascend to a fairyland.




393. If you do not close a door, then another nine will not open to you; if you do not abandon a lover, then you will not embrace a truer one; if you do not drop a piece of baggage, then you will not walk very far; if you do not remove the blinders of conventional thinking, then you will not see the light at the end of the tunnel.




394. Die, yesterday's me; embrace today's me! Die today's me, embrace tomorrow's me!





395. Do what you want without breaking the rules and be able to do anything of your own free will that is not perverse.




396. 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.




397. Everyone has their own LIFE trajectory; everything is destined. A phenomenon is seemingly wrong, but it is our own thoughts, behavior, and perception that are wrong.





398. When we die, we must die clearly and without regrets,and never come to this world in vain. while we are alive on earth, we must distinguish the priorities of life :what is important and what is unimportant. Otherwise it is too late and we will die with regrets.



399.Do not be nostalgic for all the past. Open up the future rather than look back the past.The universe is boundless; time and space are endless.There is no end to the future of LIFE; LIFE is always on the way.The scenery ahead is unknown and unprecedented for us.No matter how wonderful the environment in which we are at present, we still need to open up virgin land,to explore the new way, to enter the new realms.Because joy is in creating, not enjoying material comfort; happiness is in devoting, not getting; freedom is in continually abandoning, not being conservative and maintaining the achievement.




400. Once people stop marching forward, they will inevitably backslide into dispiritedness and depravity;once they are unwilling to abandon all their possessions,they will inevitably slip towards selfishness and greed;once they cling to ancient ways and bygone values, people will never have the chance to see the incomparable phenomena and scenery.

401. The universe is an illusion and its size relates to consciousness; the stronger the consciousness, the bigger the universe; the universe would not exist without consciousness.



402. The universe is the product of the consciousness of the Greatest Creator. The universe did not originate from the Big Bang. Rather, the universe came into being because Wuji gave birth to Taiji and chaos evolved into holographic order.



403. There are eight forces in the universe:

(1) Magnetism

(2) Gravity

(3) The strong force

(4) The weak force

(5) The tectonic force

(6) The repulsive force

(7) The conscious force

(8) The spiritual force



The universe is made up of three elements:

l Consciousness

l Structure

l Energy



404. There are twenty (20) parallel worlds in the universe.

● People live in the XY world

● Spirits live in the -X-Y 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

● Gods, Buddha, and the Celestial Islands Continent are in the XYZ world



405. The universe exists for LIFE, and LIFE exists for the universe; when LIFE dies out, the universe will perish; when the universe is dead, LIFE will be extinct.



406. The Solar system is designed to serve humans.



407. The moon did not come into being naturally; it was created especially for LIFE on earth. Apart from its other functions, the moon serves as a warehouse to store UFOs.



408. The UFOs that we occasionally spot in the sky are not from the outer space but from the center of the moon, which is a gigantic warehouse which stores many “tools” that celestial fairies once used. And UFOs are one of these tools. The moon has a gate which can be opened at any time. Beneath the mysterious Bermuda Triangle, there is a huge “palace”, which the celestial fairies use as temporary lodging on earth. When such needs arise, celestial fairies can exercise remote control of the UFOs within the moon at any time and use them to visit earth.



409. The earth:

● The atmosphere is the skin of the earth

● The ozonosphere is the protector of LIFE on earth

● Water is the blood of the earth

● Photosynthesis is the headspring of food for LIFE

● Symmetry in nature is a mysterious force

● The perfect scale is the golden mean

● The brain is the epitome of the universe

● Genes are the sealed book of LIFE

● Conditioned reflexes are the protective mechanism of LIFE

● The pleasure of sex is not only for the continuation of the ancestral line

● The beauty of nature is the masterpiece of the Greatest Creator





410. The universe has negative cosmic velocity; namely, the speed of nonmaterial, which is faster than that of light.



411. The Universe:

● Everything in the universe moves in Tao

● The souls of all LIFE forms are connected with the soul of the Greatest Creator

● Everything and every phenomenon has to abide by their own principles and laws, whether it is the operation of celestial bodies or the actions of ants and bees

● Everything is controlled by Tao

● The universe is holographic, and an idea can be spread across the universe in an instant



412. The total energy of the universe is always zero; it maintains its relative stable order with zero-total energy.



413. Holographic order means that the universe can be so expansive that there is no exterior and so small that there is no interior. Everything is in holographic telepathy with the universe; nothing is independent of anything else, and no phenomenon is independent of any other phenomena.





414. The unity of opposites is only a phenomenon of the universe; not the essence of it. The essence of the universe is holographic order. There are no opposites such as justice and injustice, good and evil, or beauty and ugliness in holographic order.



415. The universe can be divided into microcosms and macrocosms. A universe without a border is called a macrocosm, and a universe with a border is called a microcosm. The macrocosm consists of a vast number of microcosms. The universe in which man exists is a microcosm which is called the Earth universe.



416. All objects within the scope of time, including celestial bodies, have an origin, a time of birth, and a course of development. The universe is no exception. Wuji reigned supreme before the birth of the universe.

The state of Wuji is:

(1) The absence of exterior and interior

(2) The absence of large and small

(3) The absence of borders

(4) The absence of entity and non-entity

(5) 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.





417. Chaos is a disorderly state, while holographic order is an orderly state; chaos was the state before the formation of the universe, while holographic order is the state after the formation of the universe; chaos means mess, lack of order and a borderless and expansive state; holographic order means wholeness and inseparable integrity. 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.




418. Causality is the law that maintains a zero sum of positive and negative energies in the universe: it is also known as the law of cause and effect.




419. The existence of nature is what causes the clear-layered, well-structured, multiform, and constantly changing wonder of LIFE to unfold as it does. If everything were devoid of its nature, the universe would return to its original state of chaos.




420. The material world is the positive universe; the nonmaterial world is the negative universe. Non-material things are of the negative universe if 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; the nonmaterial world.




421. The positions of materials and non-materials and the spheres of their activities are called space. Space can be positive or negative. The non-material exists in negative space; material exists in positive space. Positive space is determined by the existence and distribution of material; negative space is determined by the existence and distribution of nonmaterial.





422. Space can change an object’s shape and its rules of operation. Space includes natural space and the space of thought. In different spaces, LIFE and objects have different rules of operation and different states of existence. The changes of space cause changes of LIFE in the aspects of physiological mechanisms, modes of thinking, and states of survival. One must change their spaces of activity if they want to change themselves.





423. Nature will offer us corresponding feedback to whatever information we put into it. There are no coincidences in the universe. The occurrences of all phenomena have their corresponding necessary factors. There are no natural phenomena that do not have causes. All necessary factors will inevitably lead to certain results. This is the program and the objective law that are not subject to the will of man.





424. Space can be compressed, expanded, and dissolved.





425. The passageways connecting the 36-dimensional space are called space tunnels.




426. 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.



427. Time is the recorder of the state of material movement; time is born of movement; without movement, there would be no time.



428. Time has eight 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 space

(6) Time is both longitudinal and latitudinal

(7) Time has different manifestations in different spaces

(8) Time can be compressed, expanded, and dissolved



429. Time tunnels are dense time networks which are composed of positive and negative time and are widely distributed throughout the universe.



430. Time changes everything and everything exists within a specific time. To make an object exist eternally, you must make its time of existence eternal.

431. 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 its passage. But insofar as earth time is concerned, several seconds of the latitudinal time and space can be several decades, centuries, or millennia.



432. Our physical bodies are in positive space, but our spiritual entities are in negative space.




433. To break through the bondage of time and space, one needs to have a touch of whimsicality, unconventional thinking, and retroaction.




434. Tao is the commonality of the universe and the core of Tao is the Greatest Creator. Revering the Greatest Creator and following Tao means the perfect and harmonious synchronization of one’s individuality with the universe’s commonality. Only those people who have perfectly and harmoniously unified their individuality with the commonality of the universe have sober minds, and only they will have bright prospects. If you abandon this general principle and direction, then you cannot secure a bright prospect no matter how much you engage in self-cultivation.



435. Nonmaterial is the reaction to material but it does not possess the characteristics of material. All materials pass 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, and to do this, one must work hard to master the spiritual entity of LIFE; when all conditions are ripe, success will follow. Once you break through, you will be able to enter latitudinal time and space as you like, feel relaxed and happy, and be overwhelmed by unparalleled beauty.



436. 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 make one’s consciousnesses enter the nonmaterial world and go there to personally observe it, as when entering a dreamland. We can only understand the nonmaterial world by personally interacting with it. There are two types of nonmaterial worlds; one is the type that is perceived from a time tunnel, and the other is the type that is perceived from a space tunnel. The one that is perceived from a time tunnel is longitudinal and the one that is perceived from a space tunnel is latitudinal. 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. If we do not see anything in the material world, it means that our naked eyes have failed; they are covered, closed, or have become blind; if we cannot see anything in the nonmaterial world, it proves that our spiritual eyes have failed, they are covered, closed, or have become blind.




438. The sum of positive and negative energy in the universe is always zero. The total score of wins and losses is always zero. Behind the glory of winners are hidden the bitterness and misery of losers. 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. Eight dialectics of the universe:

(1) Emptiness is form and the very form is emptiness

(2) When things are exhausted, they revive. When they end, they begin again

(3) The small can grow big and detail matters

(4) Life and death are the root of one another. Yin flourishes and Yang will decline

(5) To have nothing is to have everything and to have everything is to have nothing

(6) The mind abides nowhere, the nature shows. The mind abides somewhere, the nature fades

(7) Motion and stillness co-exist. Light and dark are interdependent

(8) The positive and negative are symmetrical, and the proportion constrains



440. Tao is the consciousness of the Greatest Creator, the blood of the universe, nature, the synthesis of all rules and laws, and is the general programme that governs the operation of everything.


441. Tao has these eight (8) characteristics:

(1) Holographic order

(2) Eternal reliability

(3) Instantaneous detection and response

(4) Lack of interior or exterior and transcendence over time and space

(5) Spirituality

(6) Fairness

(7) Non-sluggishness; immediacy

(8) Elusiveness, yet substantiality




442. The realization of everything represented by Tao is expressed in form. Without form, Tao would be difficult to materialize. Form is the embodiment of Tao, but is by no means Tao itself. In the same way, the cells in our bodies are our embodiment, but they are not us.




443. Tao exists in everything; everything exists in Tao; Tao is ONE. The bulky universe has only one consciousness, that of the Greatest Creator, which is represented by the way of Tao.




444. The attributes of Tao have no contradictions. If one has conflicts with others, then that person has not followed their Tao; if there are conflicts within groups, then those groups have not follow their Tao.




445. The operation of Tao begins with minor details, continues in dribs and drabs, and consummates in both profound and subtle, but there is no trick to it.




446. Zen is the best approach through which one can receive the enlightenment of Tao. Any other approaches can be described by words; only Zen can be perceived with soul. Understanding the truth of Zen does not require formal education, because heaven, earth, and all phenomena are all “books”. We can read the books of heaven, earth, and all phenomena, the “book without words”, at all times whether we are awake or asleep.





447. 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 in the future; as long as we are willing to rely on it, we always can, and this is how we can settle for LIFE. It is Tao; the embodiment of the consciousness and the soul of the Greatest Creator; by entrusting our lives to the care of Tao, we are entrusting them to the care of the consciousness and soul of the Greatest Creator. In one word, we must do exactly that.





448. Without use, entities are of no avail. This is a big mystery. This profound thought means that the realizations of all entities are exhibited by their “use”. To obtain an entity, one must spend time and effort on their “use”. Without “use”, no entity will be obtained. It is only by exhibiting our “use”, that we can achieve Tao, because the value of thing lies in its “use”. Without use, one cannot obtain an entity.





449. The values of things lie in their use. The functions and values of Tao are embodied completely in use. The greater and the more the use, the greater the value. All objects in the universe exhibit their value through their uses. As far as we are concerned, the more uses one has or the greater use one has, the greater value they will have and the greater realization they will have. Therefore, they will be more likely to endure. We cultivate ourselves to expand our uses. The more useful we are, the greater achievements we will obtain in cultivation.




450. The characteristic of Tao is holographic order. Chaos is the phenomenon of holographic order; holographic order is the essence of chaos. Actually, 99.9999% of people see the chaos, but one in a million perceive the holographic order. Jesus, Sakyamuni, and Lao Tzu were great because they understood the holographic order rather than just the chaos. The perception of chaos is narrow-sensed, unilateral, local, and linear, while the perception of holographic order is broad-sensed, comprehensive, integrated, and nonlinear.





451. 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.




452. The pursuit of various arts is a small matter, but the pursuit of Tao is an important matter. It is easy to acquire and learn art but extremely difficult to achieve Tao. Do not fall into and get stuck in the traps of arts because arts are endless. The search for arts cannot be completed in a century of millenia, so let us rush directly to the headstream - Tao.




453. It is difficult to reach heaven, but more difficult to understand oneself; difficult to pursue Tao, but more difficult to confront oneself truthfully.






454. Neither chickens nor dogs will follow you into paradise as a result of your acquisition of Tao; neither friends nor relatives can become celestial beings by shadowing your success in achieving that goal. Everyone must achieve Tao through their own efforts.





455. Our cultivation should be concentrated on the perception, pursuit, acquisition, and practice of Tao, and we must never be infatuated with exploits, magic, arts, or ceremonies. We should pay attention to meanings, rather than appearances and forms. The core of cultivation is to perfect the nonmaterial structure of LIFE rather than to obtain wisdom, extrasensory perception, and psychokinetic powers. We should concentrate our thoughts and efforts on our transformation of consciousness, instead of on sitting cross-legged and practicing our skills.




456. The perception, pursuit, verification, acquisition, and maintenance of Tao is the road to the sublimation of LIFE.

● The perception of Tao means to understand, 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, and the secrets and profound mysteries of the universe, of time and space, and of LIFE and being.

● The pursuit of Tao is to establish one’s own outlook on the world, LIFE, being, and values, on the basis of the perception of Tao.

● The verification of Tao is to constantly validate through one’s practices whether the outlooks on the world, life, being, and values are correct and conform to the laws and procedures of the evolution of Tao.

● The acquisition of Tao means that one understands the secrets and profound mysteries of the universe, time and space, and LIFE and being, and has established unshakable correct views on the world, LIFE, being, and values.

● The maintenance of Tao means that one will self-improve, self-refine, and behave according to the views on the world, LIFE, being, and values that one has established, and will stick to their faith and belief no matter how the world may change, what great events have happened in the vicinity, whether they are in favorable circumstances or in adversity, and no matter how great a temptation with which they are faced. They will remain resilient and strong even after going through endless batterings of hurricanes from every direction, and remain seated on the fishing boat, unaffected by the surging stormy waves. Jesus’ teaching that, “one who has the greatest endurance will be saved”, is the cornerstone meaning of maintaining Tao.



457. Tao’s effect on the practical world is huge and grand; the track of the world’s movements follow it absolutely. Tao is immeasurable and inexpressible; it arouses all phenomena of the world, although it is absolutely immeasurable; it gestates and creates the universe, although it is absolutely inexpressible; it is far-reaching and dark, but the smallest micro hypostasis that creates the world has come from it. The smallest micro hypostasis is true and can be proven authentic. Tracing from ancient times through today, we see that Tao has always existed, and can explore the genesis of the universe through Tao. How can I know the status of the genesis of all things? I study it through the principles of Tao.





458. “10-9=Tao” Tao has intricate layers of meanings. However, when reduced to a nutshell, it is simply the law and the order; the one. For us, the meaning of “10-9=Tao” is to cast away the numerous and complicated matters in life and concentrate 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 ONE, we will be connected to Tao. Undivided attention, whole-hearted devotion, total commitment, and perseverance are the embodiment of “10-9=Tao”. As long as we are capable of this, there is nothing that we cannot achieve; constant water drops wear away hard stones, sawing will cut wood into halves, the pedicles will come off naturally when the melons are ripe, and a channel will be formed when the water arrives.





459. Who can change the program of the evolution of Tao? We can neither change it, nor should we attempt to do so. What we need to do is escape from the traps of LIFE. Those who cannot save themselves cannot 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 first find a way to escape by their thoughts and consciousnesses. As long as you are awake spiritually and sober mentally, you can escape from the traps of LIFE, step by step.




460. Ultimate Tao cannot be reached by active pursuit. Great Tao has no feelings. Tao would not help you if you were poor and pathetic; it would not punish you if you were rich and powerful. The only measure of rewards 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.




461. What if you are not in an ideal environment?

● You may actually refine yourself by immersing yourself in the world of laities

● You may keep yourself aloof from worldly affairs by involving yourself with them

● You can accomplish your wishes by your devotion

● You may make yourself outstanding from the ordinary by following the steps of the ordinary.



462. Anyone who is always happy, joyous, and free is a celestial.



463. To become a celestial, one must finish all worldly ties and foster new ones with celestial beings. It is hard to be a celestial being while still engaging in worldly ties.



464. Let our minds abide nowhere, but follow what is predestined and be unrestrained. “You must just enjoy your life no matter where you are or what you are doing.”



465. You must do three things in the process of transforming from human to celestial:

(1) Pay back your debts and finish you worldly ties

(2) Accumulate your merits and virtues

(3) Purify your nonmaterial structure



466. Fame, power, wealth, and rank are traps. Glory and favor, as well as humbleness and humiliation are obstacles. Only with the least amount of selfish desire and indifference to favor and humiliation, can one embark on the road to celestial immortality. The lack of selfish desire is the starting point toward becoming a celestial being. If selfishness is not banished, one will be bound to live as a laity, and if their desires are not extinguished, then they may be engulfed by the fires of desire. To become a celestial being, one must decrease their selfishness, weaken their desires, and keep a sober mind in the face of fame, power, and carnal pleasure; never be enslaved by material but use it as you will.




467. To become a celestial, one must be detached from worldly affairs and withdrawn from worldly pursuits. There is only one word to describe the secular world: restless; there is only one word to depict the human world: noisy; there is only one word to portray fairylands: serene. Transcendence over worldly affairs means a great leap from restlessness and noise to a return to serenity.





468. Every type of LIFE structure lives in its corresponding space. Animals scurry about on the ground, birds soar in the sky, bees buzz among the flowers, flies dash to and fro between garbage piles, laities hustle and bustle in private ownership and having families, sages wander freely in public ownership, celestials loiter in non-ownership, and fairies follow their own inclinations in their own world.



469. One of the requirements for attaining a celestial being status is to be able to perceive the future fairyland in our consciousnesses. We must first imagine ourselves as celestial beings in our consciousness; “Different modes of thinking correspond to different modalities of LIFE forms”. If we always envision life in the Thousand-year World, then the structures of our LIVES will develop toward that end in the long run, and we will go to the Thousand-year World when the conditions become right. Others may think that you are dead, but you will actually have departed the human world to enjoy a celestial being’s life in the Thousand-year World.



470. Buddhism has theories of “five monastic precepts and ten kindnesses”, and of “precepts, calmness, and wisdom”, Christianity has theories of original sin and penance, and human ethics has theories of rules governing human relationships. The theories of celestial immortality preach the exposition of nature, freedom, and pleasure, following predestined relationships, freedom from restraint, and peripateticism.
