Society is harmonious, the world is peaceful, and mankind is beautiful and dedicated to all.
Wisely to choose the right path and method, a bright future is directly ahead!
As an individual, we have learned words from birth, to be able to use our own eyes and hearts to understand the color, shape and sound of all things in the world, to pass through the world, to absorb wisdom and create history, and learn to distinguish, define and choose from experience. It is choice after choice that constitutes everything in our lives and destinies, and the most primitive kinetic energy of all this is the wisdom buried in our spiritual world.
Wisdom is the foundation of everyone’s soul. Wisdom gives us the ability to taste the “quietness” in the soul and the ability to create higher self. It is wisdom that allows us to have a high level of clarity in the chaos of the world, to think wisely, it is possible to think about the spiritual question of “who am I, where am I, where am I going”. Wisdom is our higher self, and the higher self is the purest intuition of the soul. This is our original awareness of being human. From the beginning of birth to the end of life, we will all be born with this innate attribute. We are on a path that nurtures wisdom
Everyone has wisdom. From self-awareness to higher-self-consciousness, to nourish wisdom, it is an elevated form of body, mind, and soul. Many times, we “feel” that we or others do not have wisdom, are weak in wisdom, and have poor conduct. In fact, it is not that they or we do not have wisdom. The human body is a vessel that nourishes the soul, and each soul is conceived by wisdom. In this world, the display of wisdom and the level of growth are completely derived from whether a person can break away from self-consciousness in the process of growth and practice, to seek the natural world, to explore the universe, and to realize time and life, so that one has a higher-self-consciousness, and then use this higher-self thinking to irrigate one’s own wisdom, and give birth to a blossoming, harmonious wisdom.
And how can we open the channel from self to higher self?
In fact, it is quite simple. Self-consciousness seeks inward and from self. “I think, I feel” is all personal and ego, while higher self-consciousness seeks outward. “How to contribute and how to create” are all sublimated and derived from the self as the blueprint. Therefore, when one seeks outward and dedicates to others, it is a choice to connect with the higher self. In the journey of life, what kind of tempering and understanding, as well as self-reflection and awareness, does it take so that we can let go of selfishness and be the higher self? In fact, this is not difficult to understand. In many cases, we just lack a care and dedication to the mission of the soul, as well as an understanding of the self and love for everything in the world-love, a simple and profound word, it is the source of wisdom that nourishes our lives. Knowing love and releasing love, one has the source energy of wisdom. All the energy of love one gives will become a boost to purify and elevate the soul and to connect with the source of the spiritual world. The source is the unity of all things, the unity, the tolerance, the high-level energy that spreads and explodes again after going deep. It is the most precious gift that anyone with a heart and soul can have.
When the elevated form of body, mind, and soul appears in our lives, we will become luminous bodies, energy sources, transmitting this power to everyone we encounter, and then we will become even greater from this dedication. Energy and more wisdom eventually master the key to open the door of wisdom and become an opportunity for enlightenment and insight, and are cause and effect of great truth.
Buddhism says that an enlightened person possesses magical powers, including the six psychic powers of Heavenly Eye, Heavenly Ear, Thought Reading, Destiny Knowing, Divine Realm, and Omission. These psychic powers are the embodiment of the spiritual wisdom before the body and mind are united. After being in harmony with the Tao, it is “rebirth in the Tao”, and the process of “returning to the basics and returning to the truth” begins. The immortal Buddha saints who have escaped from “giving me, dedication, and giving” return to ordinary people, and live a true life. Therefore, the greatest magical power is nothing else, but after seeing, savoring, and unraveling, letting go of all attachments, and oneself, this is “Daotong”. “The gods are wise, and those who are acquainted with them. Wisdom is enough to reach everything, and those who are not affected by circumstances are called great magical powers.” “Being untouched by things, doing things without chaos, the road is wonderful!”
Here, we must know that wisdom is conceived by love, and is naturally toward the truth, great truths are always simple. What was the origin? In fact, it is the thought of giving and dedicating, which demonstrates the form of color, shape, and sound. The so-called attitude of a saint is the virtue of all living beings. All living beings can be sanctified, and holiness originates from all living beings.
The truth is in the world, serve the world!
When we understand that the return of truth is love and dedication, then we should examine ourselves and realize our own nature on the way to the universal path, so that we can have a deep and profound insight into the world we are in. Truth is all the allusions and reality that man sees are also created by man. Our spirit is born between the heaven and the earth. It is the spiritual life coexisting with all the spirits of the heaven and the earth, it can lead all into one.
In this regard, Chinese culture is very clearly explained and expressed. The Taoist classic ” Xi Sheng Jing – my life chapter” once stated: “My fate is mine, not heaven and earth. I do not watch or hear, gods are not born, and stay with the Tao forever. I am separated from heaven and earth, and I am self-sufficient. ” I am the master of my own destiny” is one of the important teachings of Taoism and one of the fundamental essences of the culture bred by the Chinese dragon spirit. Our personal lives, like the heavens and the earth, are all transformed by the nature energy. If people rely on wisdom, through learning, to figure out the principles of good fortune they can foretell the opportunity of Yin and Yang. And in turn cultivate and keep qi, return to the origin, be with the truth, keep the fundamental spiritual energy of life, purify the haze, and achieve the greatest self.
But this doctrine has been misinterpreted by posterity (in fact, it is the heart of the villain). One thinks that it is possible to ignore the creatures of heaven and earth, that personal life can take shortcuts, disregarding the laws of nature, the cosmic universe, and violating the wisdom of the heart and virtue in order to seek selfish desires, gain wealth, beauty and power, while forgetting the rule of “putting people first”, is bred by the rules of heaven and earth. Going against heaven and earth will surely be abandoned by the Tao.
If we don’t seek the truth from ourselves and follow cause and effect with Tao and love, then the consequences will be unbearable – resulting in rupture of civilization, destruction of spirit and annihilation of the soul, the appearance of all evils and perversions against human beings, pain and suffering, emptiness and ignorance. The “insanity” of the times, wisdom, art, and virtue will all die with devotion and love, and the obscure spiritual age will have to wait for the end of war, bloodshed, and civilizational disintegration.
In order to avoid this bad karma, we must reflect deeply, remove all visible and invisible obstacles, break through the hostility and selfish desires of the ego, stimulate the spirit of devotion in our nature and wisdom, make awareness a mission, make giving a habit, and make enlightenment a necessity, so that happiness and love in the soul can grow, sprout, and become a kind of “qi”. As the concentration of this “qi” gradually increases, the “black qi” that exists in the greater world will be improved, and the bad consequences of the causes of the present world will be avoided by changing oneself, with the light of love and devotion of oneself. Break through the doors of a new world and run to a better and wiser future.
This is not one person’s task – it is the mission given to all sentient beings in this era, the awakening of the spirit of devotion, the opening of the universal road, which requires all sentient beings to unite and achieve. When the thought arises , one can change the world. Although this thought cannot make one rich, and cannot make one beautiful as a fairytale, and it cannot change one’s destiny, but one can achieve satisfaction, happiness and understanding of the world. When one can discard all bad-feelings, and connect heart with higher self, and nourish oneself along with others with wisdom; Will one worry about a bright future?
It is the only way to save oneself and others, to be self-aware and aware of oneself and others, and to follow the destiny of one’s own life. Only those who have the virtue and destiny will be able to self-recognize and redeem themselves, and all living beings will be equal, so do not “violate the destiny” and hold on to the idea that it is just for the sake of redeeming people and saving people for the sake of saving people. The teaching is based on comprehension and quality. Everyone has different qualities and comprehensions, but the origin of wisdom is common to all, and everyone is taught to “understand rituals and reason”, to understand reason and etiquette, so that they can deal with circumstances, choose the right course of action and attitude.
If one is not virtuous, one will not be able to understand Tao because one’s sins are deep and one’s karmic barriers are endless, if one forcibly bless their energy and eliminate their karma, one will have repetition, karma and demons that cannot be removed. Therefore, it is only when the karma is eliminated and one can receive the spiritual energy, awaken the soul, activate the life force, transform and be reborn. Let the heart and soul restore to the original state, return to childlike innocence, be a happy, pure and kind, work hard, never ask for harvest, be the simplest self. Become one with the universe. Do not dwell on the mistakes, do not depend on the past, the breeze flowing by leaves no trace, the birds passing overhead leave no sound.
Everything comes from the earth and is above the earth; everything comes from nothing and is more perfect than nothing; everything comes from devotion and will be more. The truth is to be found in the simplicity of the red dust, and if one establishes a heart for the world, a life for the people, and a service for mankind, then peace will prevail for all time.
If one look for the future, all religions are unified.
We should carry forward spiritual civilization, promote the law of moral and wisdom, observe the laws of heaven and nature, one can achieve through helping others achieve. If we seek the future of the world, all religions are unified.
LU Xun said, “It is worth my death to expel the Manchus and restore China.” The interpretation of an enlightened person for the Chinese civilization respect. Confucianism raises the right spirit, Taoism repairs the atmosphere, Buddhism changes the resentment. Buddha, great mercy, to help others with food, clothing, shelter, property. Using one’s own internal and external wealth, knowledge, wisdom, and words to soothe the heart, soothe the body and mind, and free people from fear and distress. The highest level of ethics is as water, and is beneficial to all and without striving for fame and gain. Confucianism cares about the country and the people before anything else. Sun Yat-sen, the founder of the nation, served the public, and Chairman MAO Zedong, the founding saint, serve the people wholeheartedly… Both are beautiful chapters in the history books that overshadow the future generations and the world.
Then why is it that even though the foundation of salvation is in China and most people know the principles of righteousness, one still unable to break through and cultivate righteousness? Because of the inability to break through the desire of “selfishness, lust, money, fame, power, love”. With the influence of all ignorance, one’s insight becomes narrow, and has an evil view of the righteousness, and cannot resonate with the truth. If one wants to save oneself, the only way is to let go of all attachments and selfishness, devote oneself for the great rejuvenation of the motherland, harmonious society, world peace, and the good of mankind! Give all that one has – love for all, harmony and unity, common prosperity and sharing.
The universe is a whole. All things, including all living beings, are part of the universe. The fallen leaves return to their roots and eventually turn into soil. What comes from nature returns to nature. All living creatures spirituality is between heaven and earth as a result of the way of all, as the root and the tree is a whole, because of all the universe is an organic whole, so we don’t hurt others, for all of one’s damage eventually returns to oneself, this is the law of nature. This is the laws of nature, and this is what Chinese civilization, the civilization of the dragon’s spirit, has taught its descendants and the world’s most valuable lesson.
The dragon spirit has the power to be generous, to merge and to unite the Tao. Dragon civilization yearns for peace, strength breaks with combined rigidity and flexibility. Protect, respect， transform and carry forth all. To teach all beings to give of themselves, to elevate their spiritual level. Love country, love home, love oneself, love mankind, love all beings, and love the world! This is the foundation for unity of all religions and supports the ultimate goal of opening the new century, breaking ignorance and darkness. There is only one truth all over the world, only devotion and love govern everything. Only to “serve the world”, “giving love” and ” promoting the spirit of the dragon civilization ” into the universal principle can lead everyone to the right path. Awaken the soul, let everyone reflect and walk on the path of seeing their own nature, and releasing their love; then the future is bright, and disaster and darkness will eventually dissipate.
To know the truth is to gain the right method, to be humble and studious,
To know the Tao is to be a saint, to give of oneself and relieve of others,
To Know the etiquette is to know how to respect, to be reverent is beneficial to the world,
What is so hard about the right path? It is all because a selfish desire awakens an inner demon,
What is so easy about the right way? Self-reflection is the way to go.
Glory and legislation are legacy of Chinese nation, it will be passed down from generation to generation.
