124. Using the Twenty Watchwords to Cleanse the Mind and Keep the Heart Pure Forever
1 Human hearts are full of desires. Everyone wants to pursue sophisticated material enjoyment, taking fame and wealth very seriously, and being unable to control themselves.
2 Strivers of the Church, once initiated, should use the Twenty Watchwords as their code of life, to turn their mortal hearts back to their original state. They should live their lives according to the Twenty Watchwords and, at the same time, use them to cleanse their mind, remove all selfish desires and keep their minds pure.
3 “Persistently explore the truths of all matters with an undivided mind” means to concentrate and be completely focused. When you fulfill one word of the Twenty Watchwords, the remaining nineteen will be followed through. Your mind will be open and you will not be influenced by desires for fame and wealth. You will not commit foolish crimes. Circumstances will not make you act against your conscience and your conscience can “remain unbiased” and guilt- free.
4 When a person has this kind of internal cultivation, he can restore the innate pure heart [heart of a baby]. His body and mind will be in harmony and he will continue to strive while observing all rules and regulations.
