163. The Ways of Striving
1 The first way of striving is chanting the Grand Orison. When chanting the Grand Orison, you are on your hands and knees, coordinating your breathing with each prostration. From a viewpoint of exercising, this is a whole body workout.
2 When you chant the Grand Orison daily for a hundred days, you can see the effects. It can help you get rid of diseases naturally.
3 The Lord of Universe Church asks strivers to chant the Grand Orison to lessen the miasma of violence with righteous qi, without looking for “what one can gain and without seeking one’s own blessings.”
4 As long as one ignores the “self,” remains focused, acts unselfishly and thinks of all the living beings of this world, his health will improve naturally. The logic of it is quite a mystery.
5 The second way of striving is quiet sitting. Quiet sitting can reverse the course of dying but the key to quiet sitting is “continuity.”
6 By making quiet sitting a part of your daily activities, you can surely attain good health and accomplish great things, as long as you practice it every day, which helps supplement the depleted jing, qi, and shen.
7 We are now in the End Time of the Third Epoch. As God’s holocaust-rescuing missionaries, we are called to resolve the problems of humanity. We need to temper ourselves. Only with healthy bodies can we continue to strive.
7 今天是三期末劫的時代。我們都是 上帝的救劫使者，都有使命解決世人的困難，所以更要磨煉自己。有了健康的身體，才可以長期奮鬥下去！
