107. Following the “Original” Way Home
1 Most ordinary people become lost from birth. Why did we lose our direction? This is because we lost what was innate when our true nature and our original heart were changed after we were born, and we ended up thrashing about in the cycle of reincarnation, remaining fallen from life to life.
2 Is our home today really our home? I think it is just a temporary one. This home we have today serves us for some decades at the most.
3 We need to cultivate the Dao and attain the Dao, so that we can return to our original home and live there forever. It is our ultimate goal to unite at our “old home.” Our old home is the origin of the great cosmos.
4 The Lord of the Universe created the cosmos and gave life to all things. Why then does he have to “kill?” He wants us to live and die in a natural way.
5 If a nuclear war between the Soviet Union and America broke out, those who sacrifice will not die of natural causes, but by man- caused destruction. It will be a massacre. This goes against the heavenly Dao. It goes against how God created the universe.
5 如果美、蘇核子戰爭爆發，為此而犧牲的人類，不是自然的死，而是人為的滅亡，是集體被殺。如此就違反天道，違反 上帝創造宇宙的大道。
6 In the devastation of nuclear war, human flesh will be vaporized and their spirits would also be destroyed. This is why the world is presently at risk. The future of the human race is indeed bleak.
7 We all understand that we are in an unusual time. Natural and man-made disasters are all happening at the same time. If we do not get ready for them now, when are we ever going to start? I feel so sad.
8 I hope that all of God’s creations can “follow the original way home,” but this is up to each individual’s own cultivation of the Dao, how much merits and virtues they can accumulate and their luck.
8 我希望 上帝創造的萬性萬靈都能「就原路還家」。但是，這完全要看大家的修道、培功積德功夫與造化了。
