Observe Heaven’s Dao, grasp Heaven’s phases, that’s all.
Heaven has Five Thieves, one who sees them is prosperous. The Five Thieves are in the mind, put in place by Heaven. The Universe lies in the palm of the hand, all things are born from the self.
Humans have Heavenly Nature; the Human Mind is the trigger; establish the Dao of Heaven in order to settle Humanity.
When Heaven emits its killing intent, the Dipper moves & the stars shift; when Earth emits its killing intent, dragons & serpents appear in the land; when Humanity emits its killing intent, Heaven & Earth are upended; when Heaven & Humanity emit together, then all things will have a fixed foundation.
Human Nature has both cleverness & stupidity, it’s possible for both to be hidden. The perversity of the Nine Openings rest in the three most important. Both movement & stillness are thereby possible. When Fire is born from Wood, calamity develops & will overcome the Wood. When traitors arise in a country, their activity will cause its break down; one who cultivates awareness of this is called a Sage.
Heaven & Earth rob all things; all things rob Humanity; Humanity robs all things, too. When the Three Robbers are in their proper places, then the Three Powers are peaceful. Therefore it is said: Eat when it’s time & the whole body will be ordered; move at the crucial moment & innumerable transformations will be calm.
Humans know the spiritual as spirit, but they don’t know the reason why the non-spiritual is spirit. The Sun & Moon have their periods, the Large & Small are fixed, the Sage’s merit is born then, & the Spiritual Light emerges then. That theft is surely the trigger, in the whole world there is no one unable to see this, there is no one unable to comprehend this. When the Superior Person obtains it they solidify them self, & when the Inferior Person obtains it they take life lightly.
Those who are blind are good listeners, those who are deaf are good observers. Reduce profit to a single source & the usefulness of the multitude will be ten fold; by reverting three times in a day & night the usefulness will be a thousand fold. The Xin is born from things, it dies from things, & the mechanism is in the eyes. Heaven is not kind & so kindness is born, the sudden thunder & violent wind make everyone disordered.
The nature of Perfect Happiness is abundance, the principle of Perfect Stillness is honesty. Heaven is extremely selfish, but operates with extreme fairness. Control of beasts lies in the Qi. Death is the root of life, life is the root of death. Kindness is born from harm, & harm from kindness. By means of the principles of Heaven & Earth stupid people become holy, by means of the principles of Seasons & Things I become wise. People worry the Sage because of their stupidity, & I worry the Sage because I am not stupid. People consider sagacity strange, I do not consider sagacity strange.
Nature’s Dao is still, therefore Heaven, Earth, & all things are born. The Dao of Heaven & Earth is gradual, therefore Yin & Yang are victorious. Yin & Yang mutually push, & so variations follow.
Therefore, the Sage knows that Nature’s Dao cannot be defied, & as a result regulate it. The Dao of Perfect Stillness cannot be bound to written words. Thus, possessing this wonderful tool gives birth to innumerable images. The Eight Signs & Sexagenary Cycle, Spiritual moments & Ghostly hoards. The technique of Yin & Yang Mutually Succeeding clearly manifests & is put forth in form.
