First of all, we have to admit that the Bible is the accomplishment of the Ephraim which loyally records the Jewish history, explains the relationship between the God, Devil and human beings to the furthest degree, and gives the direction the human beings should take.
The Bible, the Koran, the Buddhist Scripture and the Tao Te Ching are the eternal and effective treasures and collections of human wisdom, teaching us how to behave and develop into the higher level of life space.
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth”. The first sentence in the Bible did tell the truth. But the things covered by the cossack may not be the holly things. And the people wearing the sacred cassock may not be the abbot.
The problem with the Bible is that the God it introduces is not the genuine Greatest Creator.
We have known that the Greatest Creator has the 8 features. The Greatest Creator is sole and only, amorphous, neutral, mysterious, impartial, merciful, supremely powerful and wise. The wisdom of the Greatest Creator is revealed through its establishment of the Universe order, design of the life program and knowledge about the past and the future.
Then, does the God in the Bible have the above-mentioned 8 features?
According to the Genesis, Adam and Eve were instigated to eat the fruit on the Wisdom Tree forbidden by the God in the Bible. Because they have violated the order of the God (in the Bible), they were repelled out of the Eden.
It indicates that the God in the Bible is a. incompetent; b. improvident; and c. impartial.
He is incompetent because he was a loser at the beginning. The first couple of human he created betrayed him. So can we still say it is supremely powerful?
Can we still believe in a “person” who often loses? The Great Flood had killed most of the human beings. What happened to them afterwards? They still wouldn’t listen to his words. The Moses Ten Commandments are actually the directives of the God in the Bible. Can you tell me how many of them are obeyed by the human being? Actually not even one. The God in the Bible seemed to know nothing about how to control the human beings. The only measure it takes is to voice warnings and threats against the human beings. Thousands of years has passed, the human beings remain the same. Is there no means to control the human beings? Or is there some other force constraining this Almighty God? If this is the case, is this God not sole or only? For thousands of years, the human beings have been violating hisorder. What is he waiting for?
The God in the Bible is improvident because he didn’t know that Adam and Eve were going to betray him or the development trend of what he had created. Is this God, who is not able to predict the future or the past, still reliable? If the Earth is going to get out of the Solar System and this God knows nothing about it, how can he save the human beings? How can this GOD administer the deities, Buddha, celestial beings and Devils when he found it difficult to control the human beings? How can he manage the spacious Universe?
The God in the Bible is impartial because it cannot tell wrong from the right and because it is unreasonable.
Why would Adam and Eve betray the God in the Bible? There are three major reasons. First, the genetic structure of Adam and Eve had faults, or was imperfect. The life created by this God was now its own constraint. This angered the God very much. It is just like the house built by an architect who put every efforts was fallen and hit his own feet. Is the house or the architect that should be blamed?
The second reason they betrayed is that they were instigated and seduced by the snake. Adam and Eve are humans while behind the snake was the Devil Satan. The energy and wisdom of human beings can’t match those of the Devil. This God didn’t punish the Devil Satan. Instead, it imposed inflictions on Adam and Eve and drove them out of Eden. Is it fair? If a rapist raped an 8-year-old girl, would it be fair to blame the girl for her sexual organ and weakness instead of bringing justice to the rapist?
The third reason of betrayal, which is also the most important one, is the damned Wisdom Tree that can tell the good and evil. Who has planted it in the Eden and why? It’s just like putting a poisonous sweet on the dinner table for the kids. Or it’s like playing the porn video for the young girls while teaching them to retain their innocence. Would a moral person do such a thing? Isn’t this “person” who planted the Wisdom Tree in the Eden has caused the betrayal of Adam and Eve?
Besides, does this God, who had created Adam and Eve, has other measures to take rather than driving Adam and Eve out of the Eden? Is it fair not to give them a second chance simply because they have made only one mistake? Does one mistake justify their life-long sins?
Jesus came to the Mortal World to atone for the human beings’ sins. According to the Bible, all the people have their “original sin”. Where does the “original sin” come from? Actually, they are inherited from Adam and Eve, the ancestors of human beings, whose sins were formed because they had eaten the fruit on the damned Wisdom Tree.
When we are born, we have the “original sin” inherited from Adam and Eve. The “cross” on our back was much too heavy. According to this logic, “the son of a thief is always a thief”, “the son of a criminal is always a criminal”, and “the son of an emperor is always an emperor”. That’s why in ancient China, in the feudal period in particular, “If a man committed crime, all his family members would be sentenced to death”, or “If a man attained the Tao, even his pets ascended to Heaven”. This also explains why the thrones can only be passed on to the next generations of royal families. This is because it complies with the logic in the Bible.
If somebody has sins, the God in the Bible and the Satan sined first. Is it humanitarian to inflict on billions of humans throughout the history simply because of the wrongdoings of Adam and Eve? Why not executing Adam and Eve and creating a new pair of humans at the time? Is creating a new couple so difficult for the God in the Bible?
All the people are born with sins. This is why each of us comes to the Mortal World to endure the sufferings. But the sins are not inherited from our ancestors. They are made by oursleves in the previous cycle of life. If we don’t have sins, we would all have become Buddha or celestial beings.
According to the Exodus, when Moses and Aaron, in the capacity of the GOD in the Bible, asked the Egyptian Pharaoh to let the Israelis leave Egypt, they were refused. Consequently, the GOD in the Bible imposed 10 plagues on Egypt. 1. Plague of Blood. The water of the Nile will be changed into blood. The fish in the Nile will die, and the river will stink; the Egyptians will not be able to drink its water. 2. Plague of Frogs. The Nile will teem with frogs. They will come up into your palace and your bedroom and onto your bed, into the houses of your officials and on your people, and into your ovens and kneading troughs. The frogs will go up on you and your people and all your officials. 3. Plague of Lice.The dust of the ground became lice, lice came upon men and animals. All the dust throughout the land of Egypt became lice. 4. Plague of Flies. The houses of the Egyptians will be full of flies, and even the ground where they are. 5. Plague of Livestock Death. The fifth plague of Egypt was an epidemic disease which exterminated the Egyptian livestock; that is, horses, donkeys, camels, cattle, sheep and goats; 6. Plague of Boils. The sixth plague of Egypt was Shkhin. The Shkhin was a kind of skin disease, usually translated as “boils”.; 7. Plague of Hail. The seventh plague of Egypt was a destructive storm; 8. Plague of Locusts. Locusts will devour what little you have left after the hail, including every tree that is growing in your fields.; 9. Plague of Darkness. Total darkness covered all Egypt for three days 10. Death of the Firstborn. The tenth and final plague of Egypt was the death of all first born in Egypt — no one escaped, from the lowest servant to Pharaoh’s own first-born son, including first-born of livestock.
It is understandable that the God punished Egypt because Egyptian Pharaoh wouldn’t obey his order. However, it was unreasonable and went too far to kill the first-born of all humans and animals in Egypt. You can punish the Egyptian Pharaoh for his disobedience. Why inflicting on the common people? Even worse, the God would kill the kids of the girl slaves working as donkeys in the lowest rank. Can we still say the God behaving like this merciful? It was behaving without humanitarianism just like a Devil.
Even more abominable, the Pharaoh of Egypt wouldn’t let the Israelis leave mainly because the God had hardened the Pharaoh’s heart. Before the Ten Plagues came, the God in the Bible had done something. According to 7:3 in the Exodus, Jehovah told Moses, “And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt.”
It means the God in the Bible had prepared a trap for the Egyptians, trying to find an excuse for the following plagues. In Exodus 8:19, “Then the magicians said to Pharaoh, “This is the finger of God.” But Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he did not listen to them, as the LORD had said.”. In Exodus 9:35, “And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, neither would he let the children of Israel go; as the LORD had spoken by Moses.” In Exodus 10:20, “But the LORD hardened Pharaoh’s heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go.” In Exodus 10:27, “But the LORD hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he would not let them go.” In Exodus 11:10, “And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh: and the LORD hardened Pharaoh’s heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go out of his land.”
It was the God in the Bible who let the Israelis leave Egypt. But it was the same God who had hardened the Pharaoh’s heart and sparked the conflicts so that the Israelis couldn’t leave Egypt easily. So what the God in the Bible was doing? It was encouraging the people to revolt while telling the authorities about the revolt and encouraging the government to oppress them mercilessly. Isn’t such a person a schemer and two-faced?
The Bible has the Old Testament and the New Testament. The part telling what happened before Jesus was born was called the Old Testament and the part telling things after Jesus was born was the New Testament. The Testament actually means agreement, covenant, and contract. The whole Bible is the agreement, covenant and contract between the Israelis and the Greatest Creator.
So here is a paradox. There are over 3,000 nations in the world and why the God has established the Testament with the Israelis? Does this mean the other nations are not the subjects of the God? If they are, why has the God only established the Testament with the Israelis while neglecting all the other nations? If they are not, what’s the origin of all the other nations? Are Adam and Eve only the ancestors of Israelis and not the other nations? The Israelis are created by the God. Does it mean the other nations are created by the Devil?
There are 1,656 years between the Genesis and the Great Flood. There are 857 years between the Great Flood and the Exodus. There are 396 years between the Exodus and the founding of the Israeli State. There are 510 years between the founding of the Israeli State and their captive to Babylon. There are 152 years between their imprisonment in Babylon and the reestablishment of Jerusalem. There are 450 years between the rebuilding of Jerusalem and the birth of Jesus. There are 2003 years between the birth of Jesus and today. So according to the Bible, the history of human beings is about 6,376 years.
According to the Bible, there were only 8 people survived the Great Flood on the Earth. They were the couple of Noah, their three sons and their wives. It means that 4,700 years ago, there was no one else living on the Earth except for the Noah family.
But this has brought some other questions. First, where do the American Indians come from? According to the theory of Continental Drift, America drifted away from the other continents. But it couldn’t happen within 4,700 years of time. Then how the Noah family reached America from the Middle East? After the Great Flood, there were only 8 members in Noah family. It was impossible for them to get dispersed. Noah couldn’t let one of his sons and his wife to cross the freezing Siberia and the Bering Strait to get to America.
Second, where did the African blacks come from? From the perspective of genetics, the blacks, yellows and whites have their separate ancestors. A couple of pure whites couldn’t generate the blacks and yellows. Even the evolvement couldn’t produce the blacks and yellows in 3,700 years of time. Besides, according to Darwin’s evolutionary theory, the survival of the fittest, could the Israelis able to write the Bible evolve into the African blacks? The blacks are not the matches of Israelis in the intelligence no matter how we exaggerate their abilities.
Now let’s come to the Chinese nation. The first Chinese King was born about 4,600 years ago. The story of Dayu‘s Flood Control happened about 4,200 years ago. It was impossible for the future generations of Noah to come to mainland China 100 years after the Great Flood. Even if they did it, how could they produce so many people who followed Dayu to control the flood?
Where does the Chinese nation come from? Are the Flood Control by Dayu were just the Great Flood?
From the perspective of the Bible, the biological evolutionary theory could never be accepted. But once we accepted the theory, it would deny the theory that the God created the human beings. But if we denied the evolutionary theory, there was no way to explain the origin of the blacks and yellows and we can’t say Adam and Eve are the common ancestors of all human beings.
The first child of Adam and Eve, after they were driven out of the Eden, was Cain, followed by Abel. “And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD. And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering: But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect.” Out of jealousy, Cain killed his brother Abel.
We want to ask the God in the Bible some questions, “Why do you favor the offerings of Abel instead of those of Cain? Is Cain killing his brother Abel not your fault? If you had never favored one of them, how could it arouse the jealousy of Cain? Why the people created by you had so many troubles? Adam and Eve wouldn’t follow your orders and their kids killed each other. As the God, you don’t have the ability to solve these problems? Or is it what you have designed?
Cain was a murderer and deserved the punishment. But you told Cain, “Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold.”
So what kind of the justice standard is it? It is hardly understandable not to levy the punishment on the criminal. But it is even more understandable to have revenge of sevenfold on those who would punish the criminal. Is it protecting the criminal?
That’s why the few thousand years of human history were full of blood, violence and crime. The God in the Bible has been protecting the criminals.
“Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold.” Because Cain is a criminal, we can fully understand it as ““Therefore whosoever slayeth the criminal, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold.””
We can conclude we had better become criminals because the criminals are protected and the good men are not. The good men have the risk of being revenged sevenfold.
In the Bible, there are a large number of prophets and dreams. The prophets are the representatives of the God in the Mortal World. They have unimaginable wisdom and power, which sink the average people with average wisdom into the mist. If someone says, “I am a prophet”, should we believe him or not. If we don’t, we are standing against the God. If we do, how can we know the prophet is a fake or not?
Now let’s talk about the dreams. There are many dreams and dream analysis in the Bible, in particular in the Revelation. Of course, those who can analyze the dreams are all prophets. But they have also brought a lot of puzzles.
First, has the prophet had the dream at all? No one could see his dream and he could well compose some dreams and cheat us. If he really had the dream, was his analysis correct, or was he analyzing the dream on the reverse aspect?
I want to ask the God in the Bible, in the Old Testament, you used to talk directly with the human beings. Then why you stopped doing so later? Are the Adam and Eve on other planets also disobeying your orders? Why would you warn the human beings in the form of dreams? Why not tell us the truth directly? Don’t you have the ability to do so? Don’t you have time? Don you have some secret sorrow?
I can give many other examples to state that the God in the Bible does not have the features of being sole and only, amorphous, neutral, mysterious, impartial, supremely powerful, merciful and wise as genuine Greatest Creator has.
So we can affirm that “the God in the Bible is not the genuine Greatest Creator”.
Human beings have direct or indirect relationships with all other matters and things in the Universe, of which the relationship with the Greatest Creator is the most important. These relationships directly determine the extinction or survival of human beings, and the prospect of each individual. This chapter will discuss the 8 relationships between the Greatest Creator and humans.
The Greatest Creator is amorphous and thus can be in any form. The form of human beings is designed based on the form of the Heaven God. That is to say, the appearance of humans resembles that of the God rather the Greatest Creator.
The Gods in the Heaven are created by the Greatest Creator. The humans are not produced by the Greatest Creator directly. The African blacks and American Indians are the first batch of humans created by the Gods. The Egyptians and European whites are the second batch of humans created by the Gods. The Asian yellows centered on the Chinese come from the Elysium World. They are the third batch of humans on the Earth and the mutations from the Dragon, which is the follower of the God of Evil. So the ancestors of the yellow race are not humans. Adam and Eve are the ancestors of Israelis and most of the people in the Middle East, created by another God in the Garden of Eden.
Humans can never reach the wisdom of the Greatest Creator. Only the God can understand the wisdom of the Greatest Creator. The blacks and whites, when refined to a certain senior level, can understand the wisdom of the God. With the genes of Celestial Being and Buddha, the yellow race, if can recognize the mind of nature, can possess the wisdom of the Celestial Being and Buddha. And the Israelis and the most of the people in the Middle East lie in between.
The relationship of affiliation
The humans are not directly administered by the Greatest Creator. Instead, they are governed by the Gods in the Heaven.
Humans are administered by one God. However, the relationship is often intervened and damaged by another God. Because the God World also follows the principle of unity of the opposites, these two Gods are equal in power and strength, unable to beat the other side. So the Mortal World can never reach the perfect state or maintain peace. The human heart is always seeking balance between good and evil, and beauty and ugly.
For example, one God has created Adam and Eve and the opposing God has planted a so-called Wisdom Tree in the Garden of Eden, alluring Adam and Eve to eat the fruit, which changed the genetic model of the thought of Adam and Eve. The God who created Adam and Eve knew about the evil intention of the other God and repeatedly told Adam and Eve not to eat the fruit on the Wisdom Tree. However, Adam and Eve failed to resist the temptation and were trapped by the other God. The God got angry and expelled Adam and Eve out of Eden.
We call the God who genuinely cares for the human beings as the God of Light, and the other God as the God of Darkness. Jesus is the representative of the God of Light and Satan is that of the God of the Darkness. The God of Light is concerned about the future and destiny of the human beings. It cares about the life perfection of each individual person, hoping the humans can reach the freedom and happiness in their mind, and the freedom and pleasure in their flesh by pursuing the truth, good and beauty. Fully aware of the position of the human beings in the competition between the God of Light and the God of Darkness, Sakyamuni has taught his followers to forsake the human life and seek surmounting to break away from the God of Light and God of Darkness and get into the Elysium World directly out of the Samsara world. In surface, the God of Darkness cares for the humans very much. He teaches people to pursue possessions, wealth, power, position, beauty, fame, success, ownership and luxury life. In every means, the God of Darkness keeps the people busy with the immediate interest so that they don’t have enough time to have deep thinking. His purpose is to fail the plan of the God of Light. In essence, the God of Darkness doesn’t care for the human beings at all. He is just distracting the people from the real life purpose.
Though not governing the human beings directly, the Greatest Creator knows the present and future of them clearly. He is also fully aware of the rivalry between the God of Light and the God of Darkness. The God of Light hopes to bring everlasting light to the Mortal World while the God of Darkness hopes to sink the Mortal World into the perpetual darkness. However, either the everlasting light or the perpetual darkness will damage the unity of the opposites in the Universe. So they will have to keep the balance.
The Greatest Creator cares for the human beings by setting up the cause-effect relationship (order and procedure).
First, the Greatest Creator gives the humans beings certain degree of free will, allowing them to select on their own between light and darkness. What the Greatest Creator has given is just what we have pursued. We deserve the current situation. The Greatest Creator has neither deprived nor added anything. We are simply following the “path” made by the Greatest Creator.
For instance, Adam and Eve could make their own decisions whether or not to eat the fruit on the Wisdom Tree. If they didn’t eat it, they could continue to enjoy their life in the Eden forever. If they ate it, they would be driven out of the Eden and work hard to survive.
I will give another example. We find an injured rabbit on the way and make our own decisions as to how to treat it. We can just let it go, not helping or hurting it, and continue our journey. The result of such selection is that, one day when we are injured and need the help of other people, no one will offer their help or do harm to us. If we take the injured rabbit, give it bandage and food, we have protected a life and get rewarded by the life-span extension and upgrading. If we take the opportunity to seize it and cook it, we will suffer from the shortened life span and degradation.
We will be treated the same way we treat the others. The God will treat us in the same way we treat the God. We will receive what we have paid. The more we have paid, the more we will be rewarded. What we have paid and what we will receive will always be equal.
In general, people will get what they have been aspiring for. If you dream for wealth persistently, you will have the wealth. Such is the case if you long for power, you will have power; if you seek for prostitute, prostitute will find you. And if you think of the devil, the devil will come. If you pursue Buddha, Buddha will guide you. If we persevere and focus on our dream, we will get what we want.
Many people may have aspired for something but have failed to get it. This is not the problem with the order and procedure set up by the Greatest Creator. It is because we have been hesitant, not perseverant, or have made too much haste.
If a person wants to become a writer but can’t endure the poverty or seclusion on the way to the writer, intervened by the wish to run a company, official position or study of the “function of horse tails”, it will put the Greatest Creator, the God or the Evil into confusion as to what should they do. Whether to help you become a writer or make you a company owner? As a result, you can neither become a writer nor a company owner.
In the primary school textbooks there is a fable telling the story of a fishing cat. A kitten and an elderly cat went fishing on the lake. The elderly one was concentrating on fishing and got a lot of fish. The kitten just kept looking around for butterflies or dragonflies. When the dark came, it didn’t get fish, nor butterflies or dragonflies.
It is not because the Greatest Creator is impartial. It is because we don’t know clearly what we want.
The cheats do not have good will, the bandits do not have mercy, the Buddha doesn’t kill life, the celestial being doesn’t pursue fame or wealth, the money seeker are not sentimental, the politician must curry favor with the public, the philanthropist doesn’t pursue interest, the scholars must tolerate seclusion, the power lover does not consider principle or friendship, the bootlicker is shameless and does not worry about losing face, the military general is not scared by the sacrifice of his soldiers. To remain healthy, one must nourish one’s life. To upgrade the life quality, one must learn to refine or improve himself. To keep away from the prison, one must stay away from the crimes. To avoid becoming the animal in the next cycle of life, one must have the human nature and stop doing evil things. To enter the Thousand Year World after death, one must pursue the perfect human nature in the limited life. To enter the Ten Thousand Year World in the next cycle of life, one must understand, pursue and gain the Tao. To enter the Elysium World, one must respect the Buddha and get out of the Desire World, Lust World and Lust-free World. To keep out of the Hell, one must do more good deeds than bad deeds. To remain out of the frozen world, one should not cheat others or inflict on the good people. To keep out of the Fire World, one should not kill life on a groundless basis.
“As you sow, so will you reap”. Plant sesames and you can’t get watermelons, sow grass seeds and you can’t get crops. What Goes Around Comes Around; Such a life, such a death. The Greatest Creator is just and impartial and reward us in accordance what we have done.
The past of us is the present of us. And the present of us is our future. Such is the cause-effect relationship between us and the Greatest Creator.
The Relationship in Emotions
Though we were not created by the Greatest Creator directly, the source of life came from the Greatest Creator. Nothing would have existed without it.
If there was no Greatest Creator, there would be no God or Evil. If there was no God or Evil, there would be no human beings. That is to say, there would be no human beings without the Greatest Creator.
As far as “the blood relationship” is concerned, the Greatest Creator is the father of the God and Evil. The God is the father of the human beings and the Evil is the uncle, which means the Greatest Creator is the grandfather of human beings.
Jesus called the Greatest Creator as the Father because he was created by the Greatest Creator. However, if human beings also call the Greatest Creator as the Father, we would put us in the equal position as Jesus, which has violated the relational ethics. Because Jesus and other God created us as required by the Greatest Creator, the Father of human beings is the God, instead of the Greatest Creator.
From the perspective of relationships, the Greatest Creator is our grandfather while Jesus and other Gods are our fathers, and Satan and other Evils are our uncles. The celestial being is the senior life form of human beings and the Buddha is the highest life form of human beings.
The grandfather always loves the grandson. Also the father always loves his son. If we respect the grandfather and do not anger him, we will have a bright future. Even when father and uncle punish us, if we get the love and favor from our grandfather, the father or uncle would have to let us go because they respect the Greatest Creator.
The concept of the distance between the Greatest Creator and us can be explained from two aspects From the physical world’s perspective, the distance between us is immeasurable and extremely large. At present, the farthest galaxy we can detect is 27 billion light-years away from us. Quark, the smallest particle we know, is over 30 billion light-years from the Earth in the negative direction. And the Consciousness energy cluster of the Universe is not in the center of the Universe, just like the human brain is not in the middle of the human body. If we see this issue from the perspective of the 36-dimensional space, the matter of the Greatest Creator is in the Zero World while the human beings are in the Mortal World. Between these two Worlds, there is an insurmountable gap. So as far as the spiritual body is concerned, the Greatest Creator stays together with the human beings and there is no distance between us. All things in the Universe are the reflections of the Greatest Creator. The distance between the Greatest and the human beings, if shown in an improper metaphor, is just like that between the finger and the body. There is some distance between the finger and the head, but as a part of the body, we can also say there is no difference between them. Any movement and feeling of the finger is related to the brain.
Though the Greatest Creator seems far from us, it will react instantly when we do something and give us orders, just like the finger and the brain. As a result, the Greatest Creator actually stays with us and knows all of movements and behaviors, either physical, mental or psychological. And all the directives from the Greatest Creator can reach our body and soul instantly without the slightest errors.
The Greatest Creator is amorphous and that’s why the human beings cannot see the existence of the Greatest Creator. But it does not mean the Greatest Creator does not exist or his existence has nothing to do with the human beings. As a matter of fact, each of us is living under the care of the Greatest Creator. There is a mutual-response and cause-effect relationship between the Greatest Creator and us.
If we compare the Greatest Creator as the sea, the human beings are the fish swimming in the sea. The Holy Father, the Holy Spirit and the Son of the God in the Bible refer to the Greatest Creator, the psychic energy of the Greatest Creator and Jesus, who executes the directives of the Greatest Creator. The psychic energy of the Greatest Creator permeates the Universe and we just live in the spirit like the fish living in the water. Lao Tzu, in his Tao Te Ching, talked about Tao, which is actually the Holy Spirit. The “Tao awareness”, “reaching the Tao” and “practicing the Tao” actually mean awareness of the existence, operation and function of the Greatest Creator and combination with the spirit of the Greatest Creator through thinking, understanding and logical reasoning. When you have been integrated with the spirit (Tao) of the Greatest Creator, you have “reached the supreme wisdom” stated in the Buddhist Scripture. At this time, you will definitely become a celestial being and not far from the Buddha.
You might say, “What you have said sounds reasonable. But I still can’t sense the existence of the Greatest Creator’s psychic energy and its influence on me.”
This has something to do with the levels of wisdom. The Einstein’s theories of “E=MC2”, “Gravity bends light passing a massive object” and “Spacetime curvature changes with enengy and mass” may puzzle the ordinary people because the levels of their wisdom haven’t reached the height to understand his theories. However, Einstein himself was puzzled by the “quantum mechanics” and “uncertainty principle”. He thought that because the Greatest Creator looks after everything, it has created the physics laws. As a result, the Universe is in order, which means knowing the current situation of the Universe would lead to understanding of its development and changes. However, according to the “quantum mechanics” and “uncertainty principle”, the future is unpredictable and there might be multiple results. For instance, the more accurate we measure the position of the small particle, the more inaccurate we will measure its speed, and vice versa.
The more profound and abstract a certain theory is, the more difficult it is to understand. For the ordinary people, the theory has become metaphysics. But if we have a open mind and think deep enough, there is nothing we cannot reach.
There are three levels of life achievements. The first level is the Presidents or billionaires. To have some knowledge about this level, you have to read The Law of Success written by Napoleon Hill known as the creator of millionaires.
The second level is the breakout of the worldly pursuit. Before becoming the Presidents or billionaires, you can imagine the splendor and brilliance it can bring you. But when you find becoming the Presidents or billionaires is not able to bring you the genuine happiness and pleasure, you will feel it a burden and redundancy. You believe there is upgraded life. The worldly things can’t satisfy you. However, you can’t get out of the influence from the worldly society. At this time, your thought will definitely develop into the eternal region to gain the maximum freedom and life. Your wisdom has been upgraded into a new level and you can understand the negative side of too much perseverance and too great success in the world. Thus you can reach the level of “freedom, both physically and psychologically, out of the worldly desires”.
The third level is the understanding of the Universe mysteries and life meaning. At this time, you can feel “the sky is high and the sea is deep for the free movement of birds and fish”. You have reached the state of “forsaking the worldly desires and pursuing what your heart guides you”. You have known that the life itself has no birth or death. Then you have entered the Elysium World. You look back at the Presidents and billionaires, you feel that they are simply much too na?ve as the children’s games..
Now let’s continue to discuss why we can’t sense the existence of the Greatest Creator and the influence of the Greatest Creator’s psychic energy.
Just now I said it related to the levels of the wisdom. If our perception only stays in the first level, we are just like a frog in the well and can’t sense the brilliant outside world. Even if other frogs come to tell us how rich the outside world is, we still can’t believe them and will think they are simply exaggerating. If our perception is limited within the second level, we are just like a frog in the pond and can’t imagine the splendor of the rivers, lakes and seas.
The Greatest Creator is being with us in our body. We sense each other. Whether or not you can sense the existence of the Greatest Creator depends on the sensibility of your soul. A poor-quality TV set can hardly receive the audio and video signals from the TV station. Even if it can, the image is not clear or it is too noisy to hear clearly what the broadcaster is talking about. A black-and-white TV set can’t receive the colorful image. Even if the quality of the TV set is good, it can’t receive the signal if it is tuned to the wrong frequency.
“Only if we have the same mind can we sense each other.” If we have the same frequency and resonance, we can sense each other.
All things are the Greatest Creator, who is not all the things. The finger is human, who is not a finger. The embassies represent their countries, which are not embassies. The scientists are the science, which is not the scientist. The religions exist for the God, who doesn’t exist for the religions. If we can understand this, we would understand the corresponding relationship between the Greatest Creator and human beings.
The Greatest Creator and all things in the Universe sense each other. The same frequency is key to the mutual frequency. If we know this, we have found the way to correspond with the Greatest Creator (the way of communication). If we want to listen to a certain program, we have to turn on the radio and tune to the corresponding channel. If we want to talk with someone, we have to dial his or her number. If we want to communicate, or talk with the Greatest Creator, we have to connect our souls to the psychic energy of the Greatest Creator.
The Greatest Creator actually does not have a name. Human beings have given some names to the Greatest Creator for him to be easily identified. The Christians call him Jehovah. The Muslims call him Allah. The Buddhists call him the Ancestor of Buddha. The Taoists call him the Original Heaven Ancestor. Some people also call him the Creator, Imperial Heaven, Heaven, Emperor Heaven, Indian Heaven, etc. Some even call him the Elderly Heaven Lord. In fact, these names are all right. Only if we have the sole and only, amorphous, neutral, mysterious, supremely powerful, wise, impartial and merciful Greatest Creator in our heart, it is acceptable no matter what name we give him.
Life Chanyuan has summarized the features of the 3 major religions and called the Greatest Creator as the Allah, Ancestor of Buddha and Jehovah.
Here I would like to state solemnly that some people call Sakyamuni, the founder of Buddhism, as the Ancestor of Buddha, which is completely wrong. Sakyamuni is just a representative sent by the Ancestor of Buddha to the Mortal World. If the people called the ministers of the Chinese Emperors in the past as the Emperor himself, we would be sentenced to death. If some schools of the Christianity, because of the Holy Trinity, call the Jesus as the Greatest Creator, they are completely wrong. The reason is simple. We don’t call our father as the grandfather.
We have understood the corresponding relationship between us and the Greatest Creator. Then how do we communicate with the Greatest Creator?
To be specific, we communicate with the Greatest Creator through meditation and pray.
Meditation means getting into the deep thinking and imagination by forsaking the psychological activities aroused by “the sound, fragrance, taste, touch and law” in the mind. It is a state of mind inaction giving up fame, wealth, life and death, thinking about the Universe mysteries and life meaning. After a long period of meditation, our consciousness will integrate with that of the Greatest Creator and our wisdom will be upgraded in quality. When our state of mind reaches the indescribable happiness and pleasure, we have been closely connected with the Greatest Creator. This is the most direct, effective and difficult way of communicating with the Greatest Creator. The “Zen Method Getting Out of the Earthly Mind” in the chapter of “Nourishing Of Life” is a way of meditation.
Jesus has told us very clearly about how to pray and what to pray. We just follow his instructions. In general, the pray must be done in piety and should never be performed in a perfunctory manner. The content of the pray must be the gratitude to the Greatest Creator for its favor, mercy and support, praise of the Greatest Creator’s wisdom, supreme power and greatness, followed by your expression of the will to behave in the Greatest Creator’s will without caring about your own success, failure, gain or loss. Then you have to confess, earnestly, your sins and mistake, and ask for the forgiveness of the Greatest Creator. Finally, you should ask the Greatest Creator to steer you onto the right path so that your life can enter the higher life space in the next cycle of life. The pray is concluded by saying that our pray is done in the capacity of Jesus, the father of human being in the Heaven.
The pray is an individual, not a social activity. The loud pray intended to be heard by others is hypocritical and useless. The pray must be done quietly without being voiced. Because our psychological activities will become a kind of thought wave and emit our wish and mind to the Universe, just like EEG and ECG. The Greatest Creator will receive the wave and respond to us. Besides, because human beings are also part of the Greatest Creator, we hear our pray represents that the Greatest Creator hears too.
When praying, never have the evil thought and pray for someone’s bad luck, for promotions or wealth, for the family splendor, or complain about the Greatest Creator’s impartiality because all these will be heard by the Devil and you will really have trouble. The evil thought is not in the same frequency with the Greatest Creator. Instead, it has the same frequency with the Devil. Why do we have to communicate with the Greatest Creator?. I will answer this question in the chapter of “Life”.
The macro-celestial moving order, such as the orderly movement of the Law-Rotary Galaxy, the Rotary-River Galaxy, and all the Star Systems within each. The micro-material structure order, such as the orderly movements of molecules, atoms, electrons, protons, nucleons, mesons, hyperons, and gluons. The order of LIFE transmigration, for instance when a person’s spiritual nature is upgraded to a certain level, they will become a Celestial Being or a God, but when their spiritual nature is downgraded to a certain level, they will become a dog, a pig, or a tree. If the person’s spiritual nature remains unchanged, they can become another person in their next life cycle. Such is the case with an ox, which can become a person or another animal when its spiritual nature is upgraded or downgraded. A Celestial Being can be upgraded to Buddhahood or downgraded to personhood.
The LIFE Structure mainly refers to the genes of all LIFE forms. These genes, as with unexposed film, can be copied repeatedly. The genes of all LIFE forms (the films) are different from each other. The genes of human are different from those of pigs, those of cats are different from those of birds, those of willows are different from those of peach trees, and those of roses are different from those of peony. In general, genes are featured by the homogenous compatibility and hetero-nature repulsion.
For instance, the Asian, African, and European lineages of our species have the same nature and are compatible with each other, so their members can interbreed and produce viable offspring, however, since human, animal, and plant genes are not of the same kind but are incompatible with each other, they can not mate, and even if they were to attempt to do so, new LIFE would never be generated. Though oxen, sheep, dogs, cats, pigs, chickens, deer, rats, snakes, and otters are all animals, they cannot mate and reproduce because their genes are not of the same type and have different characteristics.
However, the genes of a few life forms are similar. For instance, humans and apes, horses and donkeys, wolves and dogs, chickens and peacocks, apple trees and pear trees can mate or get engrafted. But the new life forms produced are not the same as their parents and they can’t produce their own future generations. For instance, the humans and apes can produce barbarians, who are infertile. The horses and donkeys produce mules, which are infertile, too. The wolves and dogs can have the infertile Bei. The chicken and peacocks can produce the infertile phoenix. And the apples trees engrafted to the pear trees can produce the infertile apple pears.
Though resembling each other, the humans and monkeys have different genetic structures and can Mate. Even if they mate with each other, they cannot produce any new life. That’s why humans are not evolved from the monkeys. Of course, we can’t say the monkeys are involuted from the humans, either.
The fertilized egg only visible via the microscope will end up growing into a tangible life with head, feet, eyes, nose, hair, eyebrows, skin, nails, heart and blood vessels. It is the fruit of the Greatest Creator’s great wisdom. The human hair can grow limitlessly. But the eyebrows and eyelashes, when growing to a certain length, will not continue the growth any more. Why? Because the growth of hair will not impact on the activity of the life while the growth of eyebrows and eyelashes will block the vision. From the embryo to a grown-up, the life grows in strict proportions, which is also designed by the Greatest Creator. Otherwise, the left leg is already 1 meter long while the right one is very short; or the head has taken shape but the ear hasn’t grown. It will produce a monster. Or the heart has begun to work while the blood vessels haven’t started their growth. Thus the heart will die from lack of oxygen.
As a matter of fact, the mechanics engineers and the architectural engineers are also the designers of the genes. The drawings of machines, buildings and bridges designed by them are genes of structures. Based on these genetic structures, they will manufacture real machines and build buildings or bridges. The work of the workers is based on and within the framework of these genetic structures (drawings). If a building is designed to for 5 floors, the workers will not build a 6-floor building. The genetic structure has even defined the window size, position and materials, the wiring and piping.
The evolutionists believe that humans are evolved from the monkeys, monkeys from the insects, insects from the simple cells, the birds from the terrestrial animals and terrestrial animals from the aquatic life. It is the same as the aeroplanes are evolved from the buildings and buildings from the Swiss mechanical watches.
The great leader, Chairman Mao Zedong predicted the future development of more than twenty issues during his lifetime which later proved to be accurate. How? Because Mao Zedong had wisdom. Anyone who predicts future developments accurately is wise. The wiser they are, the more qualitative and quantitative will be the predictions that they give. Scientists are people of wisdom because they have created most of our inventions. Without wisdom, any activities would definitely become messy and disorderly.
A country running in order and balance where people enjoy their life and work is often governed by a wise brain trust. If the people in this country voice frequent complaints and are annoyed by the criminals, it is definitely governed by a leadership without wisdom.
If a family, in three generations’ time, still can’t cultivate some promising one in it, it is a family without wisdom.
Some people can find the essence from the phenomenon, or know the time of qualitative change from the speed of quantitative change, these people have the wisdom. ZHUGE Liang is such a person, proved by his Memorial on Sending Out the Troops, and his weather forecast ability before a battle.
Everything in the Universe runs according to the laws, whether the celestial movement, life growth, ebb and flow, or human life change, etc. None is able to run away from the restrictions of the rules.
Those who know the laws of things and their movement know about the future.
Human beings are able to forecast the time of solar and lunar eclipse hundreds of years later, the calendar and the cosmology destiny of billions of years later, and the weather and temperature in a few weeks’ time. They also know that it takes 18 years for a baby to become a grown-up. The skilled and experienced doctor can know the estimated death date of his patient by judging through the symptoms. Some people with special capacity can calculate a person’s life span. For instance, A Taoist priest once told Chairman MAO 2 numbers, 99 and 8341 (these 2 numbers coincidently match many big events in his life)
The Greatest Creator knows the past and future of everything, Gods and Devils know the movements and changes of many things, and the Buddha knows the past and futures of people. Confined by their genetic structures, human can never know everything. For instance, they can never know the last digit of π, or even whether it is cyclical or irrational.
Humans can never have the same wisdom as the Greatest Creator does. But they can reach the level of God or Buddha. The problem is that when we have the wisdom of the God or Buddha, we cannot, or don’t want to be a human any more. The ordinary humans want to survive. When they possess the wisdom of Buddha or God, they want to die. For them, survival is meaningless and death is vital for the life. If they have a fortunate death, they can enter the Thousand-year World. If they have a bad death, they have to endure sufferings for the next cycle of life. The “pleasure” and “happiness” rely on the ignorance. Once they are literate, the distress and trouble will follow. The “pleasure” and “happiness” of the humans cannot arouse the interest of the literate people, who see the life as a tragedy. I can give you an example. A young deer is jumping and playing joyfully because it is ignorant. When it knows the surrounding tiger and wolf are killers, it will not be happy any more. As human beings, they never intend to become a young deer simply because of the pleasure and happiness it enjoys. The God and Buddha never intend to become a human, either, unless he is from the senior life space with a special mission.
The Universe is the aggregate of all energy in which there is an energy cluster. The relationship of the aggregate to the energy cluster is the same as that of an egg white to an egg yolk. In this energy cluster (egg yolk), there is a very small energy embryo which also contains an even smaller nucleus. This nucleus is the nerve center of the Universe which is the causal body of the energy and the thought zone of the Universe. This is the Greatest Creator.
Energy itself has neither thought nor consciousness. The mammoth energy emitted by nuclear bomb explosions can kill both “bad people” and “good people”. It can destroy Kings’ palaces as well as thatched cottages, simply because the energy does not have consciousness.
Energy can be extremely powerful, but the thought behind it can be even more powerful, which means that the thoughts of the scientists who made the nuclear bombs were even more powerful than the bombs themselves. The small nucleus in the energy cluster, the nerve center of the Universe, which is the Greatest Creator, is even more powerful than the overall energy of the Universe. That is why we say that the Greatest Creator is supremely powerful beyond all energy.
To understand the Greatest Creator with human emotions is drawing a conclusion with incomplete data. If we judge the features of the Greatest Creator through the perspectives of life and death or from the difficulty and poverty of people, it would be like appointing a rat to be the Grand Judge of the Supreme Court of the world.
Can we judge that the Greatest Creator is merciless when we see a diligent elderly lady suffering from paralysis on her bed before she dies or when we see kind and honest people suffering from misfortunes throughout their lives?
Some people who are “born with silver spoons in their mouths” do not have any virtues, but they obtain power and wealth with ease. They do a lot of immoral things in their lives but die peacefully in their old age and have splendid funerals. Can we judge that the Greatest Creator is biased for those people and against good ones? To understand the mercy of the Greatest Creator, we cannot use the right and wrong criteria of people. We have to make these judgments from the perspective of time-space, LIFE cycle, and the level of spiritual nature.
From the chapter of “Time-Space in the Universe” in the Life Chanyuan, we have known that there are 36 dimensional spaces in the Universe. The life cycles among the Heaven World, Elysium World, Negative Black Hole Body, the Ten-thousand Year World, the Thousand Year World, Mortal World, Positive Black Hole World, Livestock World, Animal World, Plant World (the Insect World and Bacteria World form the other 2 life systems), the Hell, Frozen Layer and Inflamed Layer.
The human beings are in the middle world, the Mortal World. And the spiritual nature of mankind is lower than that of the God, Buddha or Celestial Beings, but higher than that of the livestock, animals, or plants. The level of the spiritual nature descends from the Heaven World to the Plant World.
For instance, the God knows everything in the Universe. And the Buddha knows everything in the Fairyland, Mortal World, Animal World and Plant World, but not in the Heaven World. The Celestial Beings only know everything in the Mortal World, Animal World, and Plant World, but not in the Elysium World or Heaven World. The human beings only know about the Animal World and Plant World, but not in the Fairy Land (Ten-thousand Year World and Thousand Year World), Buddha World (Elysium World), and the God World (Heaven World). The animals only know the Plant World, but not the other life spaces. The plants are the most ignorant life, knowing nothing about the Universe and can only take everything upon them.
From the perspective of the God, the human beings are ignorant. From the perspective of the Buddha, the human beings are evil. From the perspective of the celestial beings, human beings are short-sighted and stupid. But from the perspective of mankind, human beings are intelligent, though some are good and some are bad. From the perspective of the animals, human beings are scaring and inconceivable. From the perspective of the plants, human beings are fantastic and great.
The human beings are ignorant because they don’t know where they are from or heading towards. Throughout their life, they are in a muddle, giving up those they should have and pursue things they shouldn’t have. When living, they don’t know why they live. When dying, they don’t know how they die.
Human beings are evil because they bully and even kill each other, show disrespect to the God or Buddha, hunt the wild animals, and pollute the waters. If the Greatest Creator is not merciful, how can it allow us to abuse the Earth created by it?
From the perspective of human beings, the genetic engineering is a great, marvelous and promising career. But if we see from the angle of the Greatest Creator, it is dangerous and evil. Some day in the future, the mankind will pay for it. If the Greatest Creator is not merciful, it will not give us the admonishment and warnings.
Imagine we have raised several dogs in our homes. If these dogs have learnt to unlock the bedroom doors, what will happen?
The human beings are short-sighted and stupid because they only care for the short-term and individual interest, instead of the long-term and collective interest. People tend to spend their time making money and seeking fun, reluctant to take time to think about the meaning of life. The result is that they have harvested dozens of years of joy but lost the happy life enduring thousands of years. Everybody understands that if he is all honest, the Mortal World will become the Paradise. But the fact is that everbody just plays tricks while hoping the others are honest. And only a few of the human beings are honest. Most of them are simply tricky. They not only messed up their own life, also lost the bright future.
Now let me answer those three questions raised in the above paragraphs:
When the diligent elderly lady had to suffer from the paralysis on bed for years before she passed away, what does it imply?
An ambitious and wise boss is aware that, before appointing a staff to an important position, it is imperative to give him the opportunity to experience all difficulties and take almost all tasks in the company, and foster his virtues of selflessness and sacrifice. The stricter the boss is, the more rewards the staff will obtain in the future. MAO Zedong arranged his son to work as a peasant, worker and later a soldier in the Korean War. Why? He hoped his son would experience some difficulties and know about the common people first before taking the throne.
The wise parents also know that they shouldn’t spoil their kids by giving them what ever they want. Otherwise they will not make excellent career in their future life. Too much indulgence in childhood can only lead to regret in the old age.
In the eyes of the Greatest Creator, people are just in their childhood. Suffering is imposed upon us by the Greatest Creator in the hope that we can find a better place after our death, either in the Thousand-year World, or at least that we can return to the mortal world after death and enter the Thousand-year World after further self-refining and self-improvement. This is why wise people regard the Greatest Creator as the merciful Heavenly Father.
Judging from the perspective of people, the Greatest Creator is really merciless to impose suffering on the diligent elderly lady before her death, however, if we stand in the boots of the Greatest Creator, we will find the mercy. It would be totally brutal to end her suffering before her death.
The father of the late US President Kennedy would not let others save his son about to be drowned in the river. For ordinary people, he was really merciless. But very few people knew that he was seizing the opportunity to let his son experience the sufferings, hoping he would become someone in the future.
So the Greatest Creator is doing the same thing when imposing suffering on a good and honest person throughout their whole life because doing so is just to cultivate their virtues so that they will be qualified to enter the Thousand-year World.
The US immigration policy has set many regulations. Only by following these regulations can one be qualified to live on this land. To work as a professor in Oxford or Cambridge University, you have to obtain certain level of education and experience. Even if you are lucky and have obtained a position there, you cannot maintain the job because the students will find the common-sense mistakes and confused logics made by you. An excellent family will not allow their future generations to marry imprudently. A pure organization does not accept new members unscrupulously. The Thousand-year World is a piece of pure land, refusing the access of “stinking people”, just like the sitting room will not tolerate the existence of dog droppings or chicken manure.
Jesus said, “Blessed are the poor in spirit. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness. Blessed are those who mourn.” Why? Jesus said, “for theirs is the kingdom of heaven”. Shakyamuni said, “The humble lives of living people are just to eliminate sins from past lives. Only in this way can they self-improve and reach the Supreme Wisdom.” The Celestial Being, Lao Tzu said, “Blessings are disguised as misfortunes” and “In order to take, one must first give.”
The Greatest Creator gives much consideration before imposing suffering and plight on good and honest people throughout their whole lives. To give lifelong fortune and happiness to a person sounds very attractive, but that person would really be over-consuming their blessings. The more you get, the more you will lose. Everyone knows that the higher one climbs, the more serious an injury they will suffer if they fall.
Everything in the Universe follows the principle of the unity of opposites and in the end, your gains will equal to your losses. The more you gain, the more you will lose and the less you gain, the less you will lose. An Indian religion advocates asceticism and it is not an ignorant practice. John D. Rockefeller, who earned wealth with oil mines, donated hundreds of million of dollars to charities and only kept a small part of his riches. He was not an old fool. The Kung Fu star, Jet LI donated his sponsorship income to the Temple, not because he had too much money to spend. They both understood what Tao is and they have possessed its wisdom.
Can we still say that the Greatest Creator is not merciful? If everyone believed “the Greatest Creator does not exist”, then mankind would not exist either. The Greatest Creator is there because a large number of people believe in and admire it. Because of this, the Greatest Creator allows us to live on the Earth and hopes that we can follow, give up evil, and return to good. From this perspective, the Greatest Creator is very merciful.
If a court were controlled by a good judge, then every criminal would be punished, but if it were controlled by a bad one, many innocents would suffer. If it were controlled by proletariats, capitalists would have a hard time, and vice versa. If it were controlled by a God or Buddha, evil would be constrained, and so on. The neutral, unaffiliated, and non-party is the least partial.
Sunshine is impartial because it casts itself on all people. The earth’s air is breathed by both good and bad people. Water, which is vital for LIFE, is abundant at a very affordable price to everyone. So the Greatest Creator is fair and impartial.
The Greatest Creator is also impartial because everyone dies. If the privileged could live for thousands of years or even for eternity, the poor would be hopeless. Thus, any thought or practice which hopes to give immortality to a certain fraction of people is in conflict with the impartiality of the Greatest Creator and can never be realized.
The human beings have tried to eliminate the diseases, such as cholera, typhoid, smallpox, plague and cancers. It is really a naughty behaviors causing trouble for the Greatest Creator. For each disease eliminated, the Greatest Creator has to generate a new disease to take its place, such as HIV/AIDs, SARS, special air molecules disease, etc. We will have to see who is more powerful, man or the Greatest Creator?
The reason is that the Earth cannot sustain so many people if the Greatest Creator does not generate new diseases which kill some people. If all the people on the Earth keep living for ever, do we still have enough space to live? It is the same case with a pretty garden. If all the visitors stay inside and do not leave, how can the other visitors come in and enjoy? Is it fair for the late comers if they are kept out?
Some people are always hoping that the “good people” can get more than the “evil people”, and that the Greatest Creator should send the “evil people” to the hell. If the Greatest Creator fails to do so, it would be unfair.
Such naive idea is simply the sentimental wish. Few people would think they themselves are evil or bad. But the fact is that all people are evil. Aren’t you evil when you slaughter the animals and eat their meat? When you slaughter them mercilessly regardless of their helpless cry, protest and fear, when you stab the shining knife into their chests or cut off their throats, you are not a kind person at all for the animals.
There is no difference between eating meat and slaughtering animals. Meat-eating is the bad behavior itself. Why Buddhists would not eat meat? They are just avoiding re-committing sins to enter the senior life space after death.
All those eating meat are not good. Maybe some people think that it is sensible to slaughter the pig and eat its meat because the pig is raised by themselves. But is it really sensible? Does raising the pig justify slaughtering it? The kids are raised by their parents. Can they be …, too? Does it really make sense?
Notes: I talk about the issue of meat eating from the perspective of “all life is equal” and becoming Buddha. I am not opposed to eating the meat. In fact, I am a meat eater, too. So I am not a good person.
Refusing to eat the meat is what good people will do. We advocate vegetarianism.
But if all the people refuse to eat meat and become the Buddha, it will break the life cycle. The human beings have their duties to live on the Earth. They are part of the life chain. Without this part, the life of many spaces will not have carried on and end in extinction. There will be no Hell, thus no Heaven. There will no mortal world, thus no fairy land. If all the people do not eat meat, get married, have babies, just like Buddhists do, there will not be the future generations. This is not what the Greatest Creator wants.
If we look at the history of Buddhism, we will find that each time when the Buddhism is prosperous, there would be a devastating attack on it. Why? Why such an ancient religion can only maintain its survival without being disseminated across the whole world? The problem does not lie in the Buddhism principles, but in the ways of self-improvement.
Here we have to talk about the Falun Gong. As a Buddhahood exercise, Falun Gong is not wrong at all. There are 84,000 kinds of Buddhahood exercises, and Falun Gong is one of them. It is a pleasing thing that the people like Falun Gong as a Buddhahood exercise, which demonstrates that the Chinese people actively pursue goodness. LI Hongzhi has his merits because he has triggered the people’s desire for goodness. He, together with ZHANG Hongbao, can be called the masters of spiritual nature.
The problem is that it has relabeled the Buddhahood exercise as the Buddhism and upgraded Falun Gong into the so-called Falun Great Law, which is a violation of the Buddhism. What is the Buddhism? In The Diamond Sutra, Sakyamuni said, “The so-called Buddhism is no Buddhism”, “Tathagata once said all laws are Buddhism”, “If some people say Tathagata has ever explained the Buddhism, they do not understand my words and are actually slandering the Buddha.” What Sakyamuni said has told us, to understand the Buddhism; we have to forsake the laws. The laws without laws are Buddhism and vice versa. Falun Gong is correct but the Falun Great Law is not. Because it focuses too much on the laws and its laws can not be Buddhism at all.
So what is the law? The law is the order or objective principle adopted by the Greatest Creator to govern the effective operation of the Universe and life. The formula in physics, molecular formula in chemistry, the equation in math, the structural formula in biology, and the casual schema in life science are all laws. All laws are Buddhism and are designed and made by the Greatest Creator.
“All life in the prehistoric period was made by the laws without exception.” “The immeasurable and countless Universe, space, and celestial bodies contain immeasurable and countless life, which is generated by the laws. No life is positioned to comment on the laws.”
He has gone too far. The laws are created by the Greatest Creator. But Master LI said he has made the laws. So can we conclude that LI Hongzhi is the Greatest Creator or the Greatest Creator is LI Hongzhi.
There is only one Greatest Creator in the world, either the One or LI Hongzhi.
Let’s presume LI Hongzhi is the Greatest Creator. Does Master LI have the 8 features of being sole and only, amorphous, neutral, mysterious, fair, merciful, superbly powerful and wise.
Human beings can never overcome the Greatest Creator. If Master LI was really the Greatest Creator, would Falun Gong have experienced such disastrous difficulty? How could he claim himself as the Greatest Creator even when finding it difficult to survive on his own motherland?
The Greatest Creator is amorphous, governing the whole Universe and unable to survive, with difficulty, on the Earth in the form of human. And Master LI was born in the mortal world, which can be proved by his archives in the past decades. Can he be the Greatest Creator?
The Greatest Creator has never talked with the human beings directly. And think about the many lectures Master LI has given us.
The Greatest Creator is mysterious. And we know about everything about Master LI. Can he be the Greatest Creator?
The Greatest Creator is omniscient. Is Master LI omniscient, too? He might not be able to answer the questions of physics, chemistry, math or biology for the senior high school students, not mention the questions raised by scientists. Can he be the Greatest Creator?
LI Hongzhi is a master of spiritual nature, having his own distinctive understanding of the Universe and life. But if he goes too far, he is sure to have problems.
There are many wise men in the mortal world. Some live secluded, and some look like average. But they possess great capacity. Some people slow, but they have superb wisdom. Some look normal and ignorant but they are fully aware of the life essence. They hide their capacity, just as Tao is, but they are able to make great achievements at the critical time.
All in all, the Greatest Creator is impartial. The success or failure of an individual, organization, or nation all rely on the balance of the Greatest Creator. It is only by forsaking ourselves that we can see the impartiality of the Greatest Creator. If we attempt to understand the Greatest Creator by focusing on our own’s preference,success,failure, gain and loss, then we will never find this impartiality, or even a shadow of it.
The Greatest Creator administers all things in the Universe with psychic energy. Such psychic energy is the Tao stated by Lao Tzu in his Tao Te Ching. We can also understand psychic energy as the Consciousness and thinking of the Greatest Creator.
Our bodies are fueled by blood, while the Universe is fueled by psychic energy, the consciousness and thinking of the Greatest Creator. Consequently, the intelligence of the Greatest Creator is actually the “blood” and vital force of the Universe.
All human movements, including speaking, eating, sleeping, studying, working, and loving are based on physical instinct and human consciousness and all of the Universe’s movements, including the movements of celestial bodies, the continuation of the order of galaxies, and the life and death of all beings within it are based on the laws of physical movements and the psychic energy and consciousness of the Greatest Creator.
The Greatest Creator does not reveal itself, instead, it reveals its psychic energy. The Greatest Creator has never favored or communicated with any group of people or given any special revelation directly to anyone. The intelligence of the Greatest Creator is permeated in every space of the Universe and in all the movements of matter. It is to be found in each of us. The Greatest Creator stays with the Universe, all things, and all people.
Since the Greatest Creator is with us, why can we not see it? The answer is that the Greatest Creator is mysterious. What does this mean? To be specific, the psychic energy of the Greatest Creator – the consciousness, thinking, laws, Tao, “blood”, and vital force – is non-material and is dark energy that is invisible, intangible, and can neither be explained nor understood.
Such non-material and dark energy perform their functions quietly and without evident appearance or symbols. Though it seems that non-matter and dark energy do not exist, they are actually objective existence, which is ubiquitous and strictly loyal to its nature at all times.
In the chapter of Primary Longevity Means in my Lifechanyuan, I state that the causes of human body aging and death, according to their damaging force, are arranged in the following order: the mind activities aroused by the 7 emotions and 6 sensory carnal desires, drinks and food, sleeping, labor, weather, air quality, noise, cosmic force (terrestrial magnetism, gravitation, radiation, and rays and waves of all kinds)
The human body aging and death are facilitated by each anger, excitement, emotional change, depression, cigarette, liquor, improper drink or food, late sleeping or insomnia, overstress , cold or hot wind, rainfall, frost, polluted air inhaled, unpleasant sound, sunspot activity, volcanic eruption, earthquake, leakage of nuclear facilities, bomb explosion, sandstorm, etc.
Most of the people agree with my explanation. But most of them do not understand how the above factors change the growth structure of the human bodies. Why? The answer is also that The Greatest Creator is mysterious.
The Greatest Creator is mysterious, only revealing the result without showing the process.
Why? Because everyone would become a God if he understood how things move and change. If so, he would compete with The Greatest Creator. For instance, the ministers, governors and common people only know the results of the Political Bureau (the highest decision-making body of China) meetings of CPC’s Central Committee in accordance with their limits of authority. But they never know the process of these meetings. Otherwise China would fall in disorder.
Absolutely not. The Greatest Creator wouldn’t let us know the process just out of its mercy. For instance, a baby is born and someone tells its parents how the baby will grow up and end up in being drowned in a river at the age of 15. Just image what the consequences will be like.
Of course, it does not mean that The Greatest Creator will never let the humans know how things move and change. As a matter of fact, he just reveals all mysteries in front of the mankind. How much the people can understand the process depends on the individual’s spiritual nature and wisdom. The purer their spiritual nature is and the wiser they are, the more and deeper can they understand, and vice versa.
For instance, the falling of apples is shown, fairly and selflessly, to almost all the people by nature. But only Newton reached the law of universal gravitation. Many people have taken lifts. But only a few have ever thought what would happen if constant energy is added to the lift (no-cable constraint). The life would keep accelerating and its quality would increase. Infinite energy is needed before the speed of the lift could exceed that of the light, which is impossible (the antimatter is not considered in this case). As a result, Albert Einstein got the famous equation of E=MC2, which led to the nuclear bombardment of Hiroshima and Nagasaki of Japan. Moreover, most of us have the experience of keeping ourselves warm close to the stove or campfire, have seen the burning things or have felt hot in the face when cooking at the gas cooker in the kitchen, but have any of us reached the theory of Quantum Mechanics? Only Max Planck did. Many of us have sat under a tree and only Sakyamuni found the 36-dimensional space and the ways to Buddha and Buddha Land.
The Greatest Creator treats all people equally, either the white, black, or yellow, the Kings, specialists or common people, either the rich, or the middle class or the poor, either the Muslims, Buddhists, or Christians. The Greatest Creator has offered the same opportunity and right. Take a broad view and you will see faraway mountains are fresh and green..” If you can open your window of your mind and cast your eyes into the future, you can detect the spiritual light given out by The Greatest Creator among billions of natural phenomena around you. And you can obtain the great and supreme wisdom that leads to utmost understanding.
I feel a little bored about staying at home for one month and now I find a new job about teaching English again. The job time is in the evening, from 5 pm to 8: 30 PM. And I also need have six or seven classes at weekends. The salary is about 4200 RMB per month.
We can never say The Greatest Creator is male or female because if that were so, then there would have to be a Greatest Creator of the opposite gender to be the opposite, which would dampen the uniqueness and exclusivity of the Greatest Creator.
Nor can we understand the Greatest Creator by using the “bipolarity” in the principle of the unity of opposites. That is to say, we can not define the Greatest Creator as true or false, good or evil, or beautiful or ugly, because if we define the Greatest Creator as good, then there would have to be an evil and opposite Greatest Creator as the opposite of the good Greatest Creator, which would again dampen the uniqueness and exclusivity of the Greatest Creator.
Everything, including animals, humans, Buddha, and God, has its respective nature. Then, of what nature is the Greatest Creator? The Greatest Creator is without nature, which means the Greatest Creator does not have the nature of matter, animals, humans, Buddha, or Gods. It is not at all correct to classify the Greatest Creator into any section of LIFE.
If we were to say that a certain person has the nature of an animal, then we would be degrading him or her. To say that the Buddha has the nature of humans is to degrade the Buddha. Such would be the case to say that a God has the nature of Buddha or that the Greatest Creator has the nature of matter, animals, humans, Buddha, or a God. As a result, The Greatest Creator has no nature. The Greatest Creator is neutral.
It is imperative we discuss the Kirtan and the Bhakti movement because is involves the Greatest Creator.
Kirtan and Kirtan responsory are originated from the traditional Indian wisdom literatures, which have been inherited by some masters with spiritual nature. The most outstanding leader of the Kirtan and the Bhakti movement is Srila Prabhupada. The Movement shines with wisdom, focusing on the spiritual features, instead of the material or flesh attributes of human beings. Many of its contents are valuable and worthy of being adopted.
But we have to know who is Kirtan. According to the many lecture sheets of Srila Prabhupada, we know that Kirtan is the Supreme God of the Universe, which is acceptable. However, he also said that Kirtan was sole and only and the “source of all sources”. Who can be sole and only? Who can be the “source of all sources”? Only The Greatest Creator is. So we can conclude that Kirtan is The Greatest Creator.
In his lecture sheet ‘Definition of the God’ in the Kirtan responsory , Srila Prabhupada said, “When Kirtan showed up on the Earth, he had 16,108 wives, each of whom lived in the marble palaces decorated with jewels and equipped with furniture made of ivory and gold, demonstrating extreme splendid.”
Being neutral, The Greatest Creator is neither male nor female. How could The Greatest Creator have 16,108 wives? Why don’t we say Kirtan have 16,108 husbands? Evidently, it is the idea of male superiority. Moreover,The Greatest Creator was much too libidinous if it really had so many wives. Are we extolling or desecrating The Greatest Creator when we generate so many wives for it with the mentality and the lust of flesh of human beings?
The wives of Kirtan lived in the “marble palaces decorated with jewels and equipped with furniture made of ivory and gold, demonstrating extreme splendid”. In fact, the laymen have imposed their own wills on The Greatest Creator. Would The Greatest Creator like marbles, jewels, ivory and gold simply because these things are precious in the eyes of the common?
Kirtan responsory is the goddess of love and is to reach the harmonious integrating spiritual nature and god. Nevertheless, we have to be cautious about the Kirtan , who is not The Greatest of Creator but is labeled so, thus the Kirtan responsory is extremely dangerous.
