1 Today we are already facing the End Time of the Third Epoch. So, all the people living in the world, tell me which one of you does not have desires? So, there must be opportunities for people to follow their natural side. Let them vent their basic desires moderately, so they can satisfy their innate basic desires without suppressing them.
2 Strivers of the Lord of Universe Church have to face the general public, and resist the temptations and challenges of the environment. Dealing with the challenges of the environment is complying with nature.
3 If you cannot comply with nature, you will be eliminated by nature. Only those who can do so can become elevated. In other words, those who can resist material temptations will become divine beings in the human world.
4 Take daily life lightly. I don’t mean to say that everyone should not have utilitarian thoughts. Just understand that whether you have it or not does not matter.
5 After you have been initiated into the Lord of Universe Church, the more you are engaged in Church teachings, the more your desires for fame and wealth will lessen.
6 You will basically have no utilitarian thoughts. You will have no desire to make a fortune but just to have enough to meet your family’s basic needs. Only when you are indifferent to fame and wealth can you talk about cultivating the Dao.
7 Those who have a firm belief in seeking the Dao do not have utilitarian thoughts naturally. Worldly fame and wealth cannot rattle their Dao heart [Dao mindset.]
