Néng Biàn Huà Yú Wù Fēi Shén Qì Zì Biàn Huà
the ability to carry out Transformation (Bian Hua)
of Matter or People Outside of Oneself is simply wrong.(Wu)
It is the Divine Qi (Shen Qi) only that is responsible for
Self-Transformation (Zi Bian Hua).
Yĕ Shén Gāng Dà Bù Kĕ Biàn Huà Biàn Ér Huà Zhī Shén Qì Shǐ Zhī
The Divine Spirit is strongly fortified, which is totally necessary
for the Transformation (Bian Hua) [to take place properly].
Such Change (Bian) also involves the Conversion (Hua)
of the Spirit Qi (Shen Qi), which brings its use on.
Fēi Biàn Huà Shén Qì Yĕ Shén Qì Bù Hé Zé Bù Néng Biàn Huà
It is incorrect that Change (Bian Huan) affects
the Qi Spirit (Shen Qi- of the Mind and Heart).
the Qi Spirit (Shen Qi- of the Mind and Heart),
when it is a state of Disharmony (Bu He), the general rule is
that it cannot be made to Transform (Bian Hua).

The same as with matter, and therefore likewise the people of the world.
All of it is said be responsible for Calamity and Personal Misfortune (Zai).
Therefore they say it is all due to the result of Heaven and Earth (Tian Di).
That it is simply the result of Fortune whereby death
is the inevitable end result.
Also they say that because the Constellations are interlocked
and alternate in their degrees.
The Sun and the moon deviate from their norm,
and become bright and visible.
Sì Shí Shī Dù Yīn Yáng Bù Tiáo Shuǐ Hàn Bīng Zāi Yì Dú Liú Xíng
The Four Seasons fail to achieve their [normal] limits and time.
Yin and Yang does not shift or mix its boundaries.
Rivers and lakes dry up [and everywhere is in] drought.
There are soldiers fighting and personal misfortune
along with epidemic disease and pestilence of a poisonous nature.
At that time the mass of the people
Sǐ Shāng Shī Yŏu Mìng Guò Jiē Dāng Xiū Zhāi Xíng Xiāng Sòng Jīng Fū
Zhāi Jiè Sòng Jīng Gōng Dé
have become casualties from it all.
But the [true] Master is friendly with them and their lot in life,
and it is an error to desist when it is suitable
to study, fasting from meat, and having retired into a room
to burn incense and chant the liturgies.
