132. Repenting and Praying Cultivate the Spirit and Condition the Body
1 When we pray to God and we have legitimate wishes, God will grant them. All requests from strivers with righteous qi will be accepted by God. This is the so called anthro-celestial communion.
1 我們一面在懺悔，一面有什麼心願，凡是合情合理的事情都可以祈禱，可以請求 上帝。凡是有正氣的的同奮請求， 上帝一定會接受。這就是天人親和。
2 When we reflect and repent, the engendered spirits and our spirits are linked to each other, and the engendered spirits serve as bridges [messengers] delivering our prayers to heaven.
3 Since you are believers and strivers, you should be doing the five cardinal disciplines. They benefit you without causing any harm. Doing the five cardinal disciplines diligently means you are tempering your mind. This is because reflection and repentance are most closely related to tempering the mind.
4 The workings of cultivating the spirit and conditioning the body take place during quiet sitting and when you are reflecting and repenting. It is at this time that the engendered spirit and your mortal spirit are united.
5 If you do not want your engendered spirit to leave, you need to keep striving. All members of the Quiet Sitting Class had the union with their engendered spirits.
6 Why should some of the strivers that come to the fifty-five day training this time ask their engendered spirits to come back? Let me tell you, many of your engendered spirits, of at least one-fifth of you, had already left. I am responsible for inviting them back.
7 I hope you, the persons of affinity and mortal spirits, will strive continuously with your engendered spirits, so that you will remain united forever.
