仙佛慈訓: 修道是時時刻刻, 是沒有中斷的。休息了, 就浪費了光陰。要對自己的生命負責, 把愛心拿出來。其實你們都是老師的化身, 是小濟公, 不要濟私, 濟私就多煩惱。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Cultivating Dao is in every moment without a break in between. It will be a waste of time to take a break. Take responsibility for your own life and show your compassionate loving heart. Actually, you are all the embodiment of Holy Teacher Ji-Gong Living Buddha, you are little Ji-Gong (serving others: ferrying all sentient beings and being impartial), don't be Ji-Si (self-serving and biased). Ji-Si will cause vexations.

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Cultivate according to the dharma and teachings, but don't be confined by them. Cultivate one's heart without getting attached to the heart. Cultivate the dharma in the moment to become enlightened, yet transcend beyond its words, that is the dharma.

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: How do you unlock the treasure gourd (from within)? Isn't it opened when you give a smile? When you welcome everything with a smile, you'll realize just how marvelous the world is and how everyone is good. What's good or bad all depends on one's perspective.

仙佛慈訓: 當你有心結時, 如何打開? 打破執著, 拋開習慣。 修道修心, 你的心修了嗎? 步聖途而非貪凡福, 修天爵而不求來世福。 昇降關鍵, 要堅持到底。坦蕩、平常的心, 才能隨遇而安。 常保初衷, 成道有餘。拋開推拖、怠慢的心。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: When you have knots in the heart, how do you untie them? Break off obsessions/attachments, knock off habits. Cultivating Dao is about cultivating the heart/mind...Have you rectified your heart/mind? Follow this divine path yet do not seek worldly fortune. We cultivate to achieve heavenly peerage but not blessings/fortunes in a future life. Whether we rise up (to the absolute heaven) or sink down (to the underworld), perseverance is the key. We will be able to adapt to any circumstances with a broad ordinary heart/mind. If we maintain our original heart, we can attain the Dao easily. Stop making excuses nor being remiss.

仙佛慈訓:為什麼會有是非,因由心起,因為心存著過去的不好,現在的不好,未來也認為不好,這叫三心,過去心不思,現在心不存,未來心不想,才能真正清靜,心無罣礙。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Why are there disputes? They all stem from your heart and mind. Since people harbor all the bad things that have happened in the past and present in their heart, they believe that the future must also be bad. This is called "three heart & mind." Do not ponder in the past, do not dwell in the present, nor contemplate the future. This way, you can be truly pure and tranquil, and be free of hindrances.

仙佛慈訓: 要依附中道,中庸之道是我們的本性。我們的本性就是中正;你們的真心在哪裡呢?真心無所不在,但現在為了要讓你們明白,所以指了一個所在,《中正》才是我們始終不移的原則。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Be in compliance with the middle path, the Doctrine of the Mean, which is our true nature. Our true nature is impartial and righteous. Where is your true heart? Your true heart exists everywhere. In order to help you understand for now, the location is emphasized: "away from the extremes, right in the middle." 《Being impartial and righteous》is the constant principle that we should always follow.
