1 Cultivation of the Dao, tempering the mind, and cultivating oneself according to religious practice are interrelated. As you cultivate the Dao, you cultivate your mind and cultivate your being. The “practice” of self-cultivation includes actions, deeds and ascetic practices as well.
2 Why do we talk about “movement?” Living requires moving. Moving keeps balance between body and mind. Sitting all day long interferes with this balance.
3 When looking at it, quiet sitting appears motionless, but internally the qi-and-blood is still moving. The key is to keep the mind unstirred. If the body is in sitting position and yet the mind is not at rest, what use does it have? You must keep the mind calm and unstirred.
4 You can reach total quietude when the mind is unstirred. By transforming and expelling murky qi and yin qi, your body will change internally.
5 The true-yang qi from within will rise slowly, and ultimately work in concert with God’s perfect spirit-yang Qi, which is drawn in through silent chanting, allowing changes to take place while practicing quiet sitting.
5 內在真陽就慢慢升起來，最後與 上帝的靈陽真炁，即每次靜坐默運到身體內部來的祖炁相調和，發生變化。
6 Even though the body is not moving, the internal workings of qi are proceeding and the qi-and-blood continues to move. As the body is expelling yin qi, yang qi continues to rise with all moving naturally.
