A description of the experience
When cultivating Qi, do not constantly talk about how to keep it.
When descending the mind, it should be doing without doing.
If you know the origins of movement and stillness then there is no reason to ask.
To face the real reality, deal with daily affairs.
When you deal with daily affairs, do not be obsessed with them,
If you are not obsesssed, then you will have a calm mind,
When the mind is calm, the Qi will naturally circulate,
If the Qi circulates, then the Elixir can be conceived, consequently Kan and Li can co-ordinate with each other within the kettle.
When there is Yin and yang the repeated cycle will be initiated,
This will bring you a natural derivation of new life - like thunder.
White clouds are moving upwards.
Sweet dew is sprinkling.
I will drink the wine of longevity by myself.
How can others know how free and unfettered I am?
I listen to the songs without strings.
I understand clearly the functions of natural creation.
Twelve sentences to show you the ladder of ascent to Heaven.
