Good order, Health and Efficiency
—— On the Building of the Home
The sun will rise on time, otherwise it is not punctual, and this will make it extremely difficult for the living creature to adapt to.
The lack of order causes chaos, the imbalance of health, and the loss of efficiency; good order ensures good health and high efficiency. The building of the home shall guarantee the health of people and at the same time pursue high efficiency. Therefore everything must go on in an orderly and methodical manner.
The more order there is, the higher the efficiency and the better the health. The more order there is, the more leisure time and entertainment time there will be.
In order to guarantee that everyone has a good health and works efficiently, the home shall secure order in the following eight aspects.
Good order in consciousness, planning, work, division of labor, living, food, entertainment, and advance and retreat.
I have put forward the following advice for you to consider and adopt.
Good order in consciousness
Uphold the"800 Values for New Era Human Being", revere the Greatest Creator,revere LIFE,revere nature, follow the way of the Greatest Creator, pursue the joy, pleasure, freedom and happiness of life, seek the sublimation of LIFE and ascension to the Thousand-Year World, Ten Thousand-Year World, and Celestial Island Continent of the Elysium World, strive to finish the worldly relations and enter the Second Home (now New Oasis for Life) to lead new life of mankind. Do not accept other consciousness, do not waste time and energy on them. Concentrate on the Chanyuan values. In this way we can reach the order of consciousness.
Good order in planning
There should be plans for what we do every day, what we do in our whole life, what we do, and how we do it. As Chanyuan celestials, we have our part of work in the home every day, we work all our life to pay back the debts accumulated over different lives, and build up the wealth and treasure for the life in the heavenly kingdom. We should concentrate our effort and energy on this goal and should not be distracted by other considerations. In this way we can ensure the good order of planning. The home as a whole shall hold exchanges of learning Chanyuan values at seven to nine in the evenings of Monday and Wednesday. On Friday, from seven to half past ten, we will discuss about the defects in the building of the Second Home and our failures to uphold the Chanyuan values. Everyone shall contribute ideas and proposals to the building of home.
Good order in work
Choose a job in the home that you like most, that is closely combined with your character and special skills, and at which you can bring your talents into full play. Then devote to the job completely, perform the job creatively, and try your best to make it perfect. Do not casually change the character and content of the work, and this is good order of work.
Good order in division of labor
This concerns the home as a whole. Every subunit of the home shall assign all the work of the home to each individual, no matter how small the work may be. There must be special persons responsible for all the work, and then allow the responsible persons to finish their assigned work creatively. Do not interfere and transfer people casually, and place special emphasis on the most important matter, and this is good order in division of labor.
Good order in living
The home shall ensure that everyone has adequate amount of sleep. The members shall follow the law of nature. The home shall keep early hours to ensure good health. Eleven at night is the time to go to bed, six in the morning is the time to get up. Generally, seven hours of sleep is enough for adults, and younger people can have an additional hour of nap at noon, which lasts between thirteen and fourteen o'clock. We should get up when it is time to get up. As long as we have formed the habit, we will become more and more healthy and more and more vigorous. We should change the habit of staying up until midnight and getting up very late in the morning. In this way we will have a good order of life.
Good order in food
The Second Home has two meals a day. Breakfast begins at half past nine, dinner starts at half past five in the afternoon. Meals will be held on time, and will not be advanced or delayed. Snacks will be prepared so people can get as they like. The amount of food taken should be moderate. Having too much food each time is not good to health, and food shall consist of vegetable and meat in appropriate proportion. The food should not contain too much or too little meat. The home will try to ensure that there is no leftovers. All Chanyuan celestials residing permanently in the home should have meals on time. No one shall skip meals or have too much or too little for one meal. And this is good order of food.
Good order in entertainment
The home shall create rich and colorful cultural entertainment and games. Gleeful evening party shall be held on the last Saturday of each month, and on the evening of every Saturday, there will be unified arrangement of games and entertainment or temporarily organized entertainment activities. On Saturday evening people can stay up late and on Sunday people can get up late or go outing or shopping.
Good order in advance and retreat
The important affairs of each subunit shall be subject to the unified planning and arrangement of the headquarter, and the subunit should not take liberty to make plans and arrangement. And each subunit shall independently plan and arrange small affairs and shall not ask the headquarter for instruction. Chanyuan celestials outside the home (with the exception of those who have rendered meritorious services) should apply one week in advance to the director of a subunit for the entrance and exit of the Second Home. The director of the subunit shall make overall arrangement. The flow of Chanyuan celestials between different subunits shall be determined after full consultation between directors of the related subunits. Generally only excellent Chanyuan celestials are entitled to the flow. Any Chanyuan celestial who does not perform very well in a certain subunit will not have the chance of transfer. He will have to either engage in self-refinery and self-cultivation in the same subunit until he has reached relative perfection or go back to the secular world. We should firmly prevent the transfer of Chanyuan celestial who has caused many troubles or has not behaved well in one subunit to
another subunit. Everyone should use their head and work hard to create a life of good order. When everything is in good order, efficiency will be raised and we can enjoy better health.
