800 Values for New Era Human beingSecond Edition Deiform Buddha Chapter 17: Consciousness, Structure and Energy
503. Consciousness, structure, and energy are three elements that make up the universe. 504. Consciousness decides existence. Different consciousnesses will lead to different forms of LIFE and existence and living conditions. 505. A person with an imperfect self is absolutely impossible to have a perfect consciousness. A person with imperfect consciousness is absolutely impossible to make correct judgment on things. The combined wisdom of three cobblers can never match that of a master strategist. The thinking of the multitude can never equal the great vision and insight of a saint. Democracy has always been the pursuit of people with mediocre wisdom, the magical weapon they employ to maintain their conservativeness, and the hidden weapon to strangle saints. 506. Different consciousnesses form different structures, and different structures make use of different kinds of energy. 507. There is nothing impossible. The only limit is the capability of consciousness and the transforming power of thinking.

508. Consciousness originates from structure and acts on structure. Energy is neutral. Energy comes and goes with the changes of structures. Consciousness comes from nonmaterial structure. Different nonmaterial structures give birth to different consciousnesses. We can perceive the differences between trees, flowers and grass, insects, fish, birds and beasts, mountains, rivers, sun and moon, and man, celestial beings, Buddha and gods. The differences between them lie in their different structures, or rather in their different consciousnesses. 509. The greater the energy, the more invisible a thing will be; the smaller the energy, the more tangible a thing will be. 510. All substances have consciousness. 511. The differences between different life forms lie in the differences of consciousnesses and structures. 512. The bewilderment of self comes from the bewilderment of ones consciousness. The bewilderment of life results from the disorder of ones consciousness. Our sufferings mainly derive from the sufferings of our consciousnesses. All our uncertainties are rooted in our indefinite consciousnesses, in our failure to understand ourselves, and in our failure to understand what we really need. 513. Most of mans sufferings, frustrations, anger, enmity,

disappointment, desperation and other negative and passive feelings originate from the consciousness of the small selfThis is my family, This is my whom and whom, This is my what and what Such consciousnesses are poison of soul, which may have a damaging and devastating impact on ourselves. If we have to deal with the endless and

800 Values for New Era Human Being

fussy troubles month after month and year on year, then we had better step out of the consciousness of the small self and walk towards heaven. 514. What is most powerful and vigorous is not in the exterior but is hidden in our consciousness. 515. When the self is perfect, then there will be no Taiji thinking, and there will be no opposites like truth and falsity, kindness and wickedness, beauty and ugliness, and good and evil. Then the thinking will be non-form thinking, the consciousness will be holographic, everything will blend naturally with everything else and become syncretic with Tao. 516. Lets take a look at water. It will take the form of any container in which it is held. Whether it is round or square depends on the container. Man also possesses this property. Different generals will lead to soldiers of different fighting capacities. Different environments will foster different kinds of men. When you are close to the mountain, you will be familiar with the twittering of birds; if you live beside the water, you will have a good knowledge of fishes; one takes on the color of ones company. If you associate with saints, you will have agile thinking, sudden enlightenment, and transcendence over the vulgarity; if you often mix in with laities, you will have prejudiced thinking, contention, and vulgar interests. 517. You should first have a thought before you can have a solution. If your thought has changed, everything will follow the change. When you are clear about your great wish, your intelligence and capability will be infinitely promoted. 518. Mans brain is used not only to store knowledge, but also to do thinking.

519. The highest realm of thinking for man is association, for celestial being is visualization, for Buddha is non-form, and for god is holography. 520. The highest realm of thinking is holographic thinking. It is the thinking of the Greatest Creator, or it can also be called the thinking of god, which is unimaginable to ordinary people. Buddha Sakyamuni has attained non-form thinking, Lao Tzu has achieved Taiji thinking, Mohammed has reached visualized thinking, Zhu Geliang, Einstein and the like have achieved associative thinking, artists like Beethoven have reached image thinking, and the common populace is capable of material thinking. Some prophets, witches, rabbis, astrologists, fortunetellers, people with extrasensory perception, and religious believers possess illusive thinking. 521. The greatest feature of illusive thinking is that every small step is a step forward but will finally retrace to the base point and that every idea is thought to be correct but will return to the starting point after a big circle. 522. There is a secret of life in visualized thinking. With visualized thinking, one can understand the Great Way of LIFE and will find the path to higher order of life space, and escape the bondage of time and space. Once we have understood the profundity of visualized thinking, we may be moved to tears and tremble with excitement. 523. A long-standing habit may induce stereotyped thinking, which is very difficult to break through once it is formed. The intellect of everyone is covered by an intangible web of thinking, everyone is weighed down by a heavy cross. They only cannot feel it or they can feel it but do not

800 Values for New Era Human Being

have the courage and power to break through its bondage. When they see people around live in this manner, they feel at ease and justified, they are accustomed to the situation and become numb and put up with it. They never think over questions like Why should it be like this? and Is it possible if I am not like this?. 524. We must be capable of unconventional thinking, otherwise it will be difficult to escape from foreordination. We should keep ourselves busy where earthlings are idling with hands crossed behind their backs and we should take it easy where earthlings are hustling and bustling, because 98% of the multitude are living their life according to the fore-ordinated programme. The tracks of their life and being have been programmed according to the screenplays. If we want to get away from the confines of heaven and earth, escape from the bondages of the Three Realms and Five Elements, and leave the realm of necessity for the realm of freedom, we must not share the frequency of or resonate with the thinking and consciousness of the multitude, instead we should act in an opposite way. 525. What is thought of as impossible in conventional thinking can be easily solved with unconventional thinking. Topography is an unconventional thinking. It can shift the position of space and make a closed space interconnected externally and internally. It is impossible to distinguish the exterior from the interior, just like the case of mobius strip, where it is difficult to tell the obverse from the inverse. Therefore, when we are faced with psychological obstacles, spiritual depression, and a difficult situation in life, we should say that we are in a hopeless situation. As long as we employ unconventional thinking, we may find hope right in front of us.

526. Unconventional thinking is the magical weapon for us to explore the profound mystery of the universe and find out the truth. It is the best way for us to find the true meaning of life. As long as we proceed steadily forward, we will finally enter a vast world, by which time we will be amazed to find the nature of the universe and profound mystery of life. We will be thrilled to find out that we have a beautiful future life of immortals, we will love life and mankind more deeply, and we will cherish this life even more. 527. That existence decides consciousness is conventional thinking, while the thinking that consciousness decides existence is unconventional thinking. The beautiful future belongs to those capable of unconventional thinking. As is known from the mystery of the three elements of the universe (consciousness, structure, and energy), the beautiful future is not created by hand but by the brain, namely by consciousness. 528. 1+1=2 is normal thinking, and is the conventional thinking that conforms with logic. It is the basis of human thinking. Such thinking has nothing wrong in itself. The problem is: once such thinking becomes stereotyped, it will unconsciously strangle our new thought. We will be confined within conventional thinking and cannot make any discovery, invention, creation and progress. Whats worse, we may become inflexible, stiff, bigoted, stagnant, aloof and proud, cruel, and unreasonable. 1+1=01+1=11+1=31+1=4 are unconventional thinking. Such thinking surpasses the conventional thinking. It starts from one phenomenon and extends the thinking to the vast universe and to the infinite time and space. It views the world as a whole instead of isolated individuals separated from each other. Such thinking can make people

intelligent, wise, modest, open, accommodating, gentle, merciful, and reasonable. 529. Buddha has given us a magical boatstructureto reach the other shore of life directly. Jesus has blessed us with the endless source of running water of lifeenergy. Lifechanyuan has offered us the roadmap of heaventhe Way of LIFE (the way of the Greatest

Creator)consciousness. The three fulcrumsstructure, energy, and consciousness have formed the trinity principle of self-improving and self-refining. 530. What the eyes see in front of us is the place we will go to. The space that our consciousness (spiritual perception) can perceive and concentrate on for a very long time is the space that our spiritual being will arrive at after the death of our flesh. 531. The consciousness of Buddha brings about the attainment of Buddhahood, the consciousness of a saint creates a saint, while the consciousness of a dog creates a dog. In the same way, whether one can become a celestial being, a sage, a mortal or a laity depends completely on ones consciousness. 532. The consciousness of injustice is brought about by the defects in self, namely by the asymmetry and imperfection of the nonmaterial structure of our life. Viewing the Greatest Creator as being unfair does not mean that the Greatest Creator is unfair, but rather it means you yourself are unfair. If there exists unfairness, there would be no universe. 533. The order of consciousness requires the establishment of correct views on the world, life, LIFE, and value, and the right positioning of ones place in the universe. According to the values of Chanyuan, we

800 Values for New Era Human Being

should know the coordinate system we are in and our position in the system, and understand the development direction of our life and being. Otherwise, our consciousness will be disordered, our mind will be a mess and cannot be put in order. 534. As far as the individual being is concerned, what is not in the consciousness does not exist. For something to exist, it must first exist in the consciousness. 535. If the consciousness does not change, the path of life will not change and the foreordination will not change. A certain cause necessitates a certain result. Happiness and anguish will be the inevitable result. However, if the consciousness has changed, the path of life will also change, and the foreordination will also change. The thing supposed to happen (result) will be transformed. Whether one goes to hell or heaven depends completely on his consciousness. 536. What is displayed externally is the intrinsic nature. If one wants to have a beautiful appearance, he must work hard on his intrinsic nature. And this intrinsic nature is the structure of life, which is referred to as gene by geneticists, as nature by Buddhism, and as nonmaterial structure of life by Lifechanyuan. 537. The life structure will determine the kind of LIFE space one will go to. The core of the determinant is our consciousness. To form good consciousness, we must concentrate our effort on thinking. The effort on thinking begins with cognition. If we cannot improve our cognition, we cannot promote our power of thinking. If we have not boosted our thinking, our consciousness cannot be transformed. If the consciousness does not change, the nonmaterial structure of LIFE will not be easy to

800 Values for New Era Human Being

change. If the nonmaterial structure of life does not change, we can only have characteristics of man. Man cannot go to the paradise, unless you have achieved the consciousness of angels, celestial beings, and Buddha. The nonmaterial structure of LIFE relies mainly on thinking. If thinking has not reached a certain depth, the corresponding consciousness structure cannot be formed. If consciousness does not change, the nonmaterial structure of LIFE will not undergo any changes. 538. A good structure (family) does not consume energy internally. As long as energy is consumed internally, the structure (family) will not be a perfect structure. A perfect structure can last forever, while a structure with a lot of defects cannot endure for very long. 539. The more symmetrical the structure of LIFE is, the more perfect it will be, and the more stable and firm it will be and the stronger vitality it will have. The more asymmetrical the structure of LIFE is, the uglier it will be, and the looser it will be, and the weaker vitality it will have, and the more likely it will perish. 540. Whether you are healthy and vigorous depends on whether the nonmaterial structure of LIFE is perfect. The better the structure, the more energy will be absorbed and the more healthy and vigorous you will be. The more defects a structure has, the more energy will be lost, and the more unhealthy and weaker you will become. 541. The differences of all things lie in the differences of their structures. Different structures absorb different energies. Replace the traditional structure with dissipative structure. Do not set up rules and regulations for yourself to restrict the free soaring of consciousness. This will not result in the isolation and occlusion of ones own thinking and

800 Values for New Era Human Being

consciousness, and the entropy value of ones own structure will not increase, and you will not go to the state of death. Then you can imagine yourself as celestial being and thus absorb the special energy needed by the LIFE structure of celestial beings. 542. Energy is attached to the structure. Without structure, energy will be in a mess. Only when energy is attached to the structure, will energy become holographic. Mess is disorder, while being holographic is being ordered. The energy in disordered mess has not any power. The energy in ordered holographic state can display mighty power. Structure will naturally absorb energy, and different structures absorb different energies. Energy is prevalent in the universe, and the channel for obtaining energy is boundless. 543. Life can be infinite, as long as you can uplift the frequency of thinking and obtain endless energy directly from the universe. Do not attempt to utilize others for your own benefit. As long as you can discover beauty and possess unselfish love, you can obtain endless source of energy. 544. The secret for the acquisition of inexhaustible energy lies in the full release of energy. Jesus has told us this secret: Give him more if he already has a lot, and snatches from him whatever he may have if he has very little. The more you contribute, the more greatly you will be remunerated. If you are stingy in contribution, you may lose what meagre possession you may have. You must absorb and accumulate energy, and at the same time you must also know how to release energy. It is selfish to only absorb and accumulate energy. If you have absorbed and accumulated too much energy, it will harm your body and being.

545. The powerful the energy, the greater the vitality of LIFE will be and the greater capability you will have in resisting disaster and hardships. Without energy, LIFE would wither and perish. If one wants to be vigorous and energetic, he must continuously absorb energy and at the same time prevent the loss of energy. The major energy needed by LIFE is the energy of soul. 546. As long as we can break through the consciousness fence, we will enjoy a new vision. 547. Energy maintains the state of LIFE, gives vitality to LIFE, and makes LIFE take on the most vigorous state. Energy can prompt the multiplication of LIFE, but it can not cause the qualitative change in LIFE. Therefore, it is impossible to change the quality of LIFE and become celestial being and attain Buddhahood by absorbing and accumulating energy. 548. Structure absorbs energy and gives rise to consciousness, while consciousness perfects structure. Therefore the core and starting point of self-refining is to change consciousness. 549. How do we open dharma-caksus? We should closely adhere to the three elements of the universeconsciousness, structure, and energy. If we have understood the relations between them, dharma-caksus will open naturally, and we will no longer be perplexed by any profound doctrines or theories. We will be close to god if we have opened the dharma-caksus, revere the Greatest Creator, have the interest of the world in our mind, and seek happiness for those in tribulation.

550. The errors in understanding lead to chaos in thinking, the chaos in thinking causes the disorder of consciousness, and the disorder of consciousness cause the bewilderment and misfortune of life. 551. LIFE lies in movement, health relies on mentality, happiness rests with soul, affluence depends on techniques, freedom lies in pursuit, perfection comes from thinking, and the attainment of immorality depend on consciousness. 552. The objective reality is the projection of consciousness, but it is not the projection of any individuals consciousness but the projection of group consciousness. Consciousness creates reality, while reality acts on consciousness. There exists a two-way not one-way correlation between consciousness and reality. Sheer idealism and materialism have both distorted truth and are thus both wrong. 553. The expansion the space for survival relies on human relations. However, if you want to ascend to the higher space of life, you must finish the worldly relations and foster relations with celestial beings and associate with celestial beings. The best way to expand the space is to begin from thinking. The place that our thinking can reach is the place that our consciousness can reach, and the place that our consciousness can reach is the place where our future life will be. 554. We may judge where a person comes from and goes to by his state of consciousness. If during his life he has a consciousness similar to that of an animal, then we can say for sure that he has come from the animal world and will be reincarnated as animal after death. If he has a consciousness of a saint at the time of death, then he will certainly go to the higher space of LIFE.

555. Do you want to get rid of your current plight? You must first realize your mistakes. All the current plights are the objective reflection of your wrong consciousness. As long as you retain your incorrect consciousness, you will never get rid of your current plights, and even if you have got rid of one plight, next plight will follow. And there would be no sign of an end. Only if you have realized your mistakes, can you find the direction for progress. As long as you have understood that there is nothing wrong with the world but something has gone wrong with you, you will be able to perceive the ultimate goal of life. Only if we have known the ultimate goal of life, can we proceed to a higher order of life. There are magical methods to get rid of your plights. First you must engage in penitence, because although ones own plights are seemingly caused by other factors, the root cause of the plights is yourself. 556. Soul is a spirited nonmaterial consciousness. Soul has eight major characteristics: (1). Soul is alive and has spiritualism; (2). Soul is nonmaterial and cannot be seen, heard, touched and measured in the material world; (3). Soul has not the slightest weight; (4). Soul is a consciousness; (5). Soul must be attached to a certain carrier so that it can have any function in the material world; (6). Soul has memory; (7). Soul has the attribute of terrain; (8). Soul can pierce or go through any objects like a beam of waves.

557. The difference between soul and psychic energy is that soul is a spirited consciousness, soul is not psychic energy, psychic energy is the source of LIFE and spreads all over the universe, while soul is only an entity of consciousness. 558. Because soul has a terrain attribute, you must familiarize yourself as soon as possible with the place you are going to. You are not able to go to the place you are not familiar with. 559. Independent consciousness means that we have a clear standard in our consciousness, by which we will independently make correct judgment of the numerous and complicated phenomena without being affected by what others say, by the immediate interests before our eyes, by emotion, and by authority. If we do not cultivate our independent consciousness, we will be plunged in a situation, following the wind whichever direction it blows. We will be led by the nose and there will never be a way out. 560. The best future is mainly achieved through visualized thinking, and wisdom and diligence only play a secondary role.
