Wants



Wants


Listen all of you! 
Truth is animitta,
yet Truth is the existence of nimitta within animitta. 
Truth is absence of all things,
yet the existence of all things in the universe is also Truth.


When giving birth to the whole of creation,
it is Heaven’s will to do so with harmony. 
All creations which live therein must realize the obvious logic that they must learn to discard their greed and coexist.


Because one’s individual self exists, others exist. 
It is Truth that people understand that they are all one. 
It is Truth that people do deeds absent of the thoughts that they have done them. 
A life of Truth is a righteous life- one in which man lives absent of any wants in his mind.  Reighteousness means for everyone to know that they are one and to act accordingly. 
It is important for people to know that they are one.


A complete life is one in which man does not live based on greed. 
A complete life is one simply lived according to the flow of Nature. 
When man lives his life in non-existence,
he will become others, and so naturally, all conflicts would disappears;
man would live a life that is of Nature’s flow,
and he would be able to live decently.


Man, because he is man, lives a life that is focused on making a living.
But originally, man should live a life of oneness, a life in which he as an individual does not exist. 
For it is only when he lives such a life that it is a true life indeed.
A true life is one in which  there is no distinction between you and me.
A true life is one in which there is no such things as rank.
A true life is one in which there is no “dual life”- a life in which man lives connected to the world as it is. 
For sure, a true life is one in which man lives absent of self, and so even if the winds were to blow or the rain were to fall, he would live accordingly.
A true life is one in which there is on ‘me’; there is only ‘us’.
A true life is one in which man lives knowing the Whole – knowing Truth.

Man’s wants have made the world what it is today.
He thinks that so many different things exist in the world, which is why homes, societies, and countries have become selfish – ones in which he seeks to live well alone.
Therefore, man is in a constant state of unhappiness and darkness.


A mind absent of wants is the true Mind.

Heaven must be one,
earth must be one,
and man must be one in order for the world to be right.
Heaven, earth, and man must be one in order for the world to be right.
Man must have no wants, in order for the world to be right,
Furthermore, man’s absence of wants is the only road to his eternal life.


So long as man has wants, religions, ideologies, and philosophies cannot be right; neither can politics nor societies.
Through the saints, Heaven has convoyed its will to man that he must not harbor wants.
However, this will could not see the light of day, for man was not able to eliminate the cause of his wants;
For the saints were unable to teach man how to completely discard the mind he has;
For the saints did not know how to discard it, and so man was unable to do so.


Heaven has its season,
And now is the time in which the perfect and infinite ‘DO (Truth)’ has come to the world.
May you and I live together in the true world;
Let us enjoy eternal life, blessings, and happiness.
