Men and women alike showed great admiration, and give their respect.
All availed of themselves to see [with their own eyes]
the Red-Character Writings (Chi Wen).
The Large Characters (Da Zi) were everywhere.
These completely filled in the blank parts extensively [for them].

With Cinnabar's Bright Ray (Dan Guang) of the Cavity

the Ten Directions (Shi Fang- East South West North East-North East-South
West-South West-North Upwards and Downwards),
it was all the same.
With brilliance [evident] within a person's own body,

Externally, [the same thing happened], and all took part

[the effects of it with] the Way (Dao), and each one of these is correct.
At the Beginning (Yuan Shi) Externally (Wai) there was [just] life.
But with Heaven overhead and the Earth Within (Nei),
there comes a transformation of the entire body.
Jiē Tóng Cǐ Dào Zì Fēi Liè Shèng Kāi Jiāo Bù Néng Huà Chéng Pì
All of these effects are a result of the Way (Dao).
Certainly this runs counter to the common ranking order [of things].
But the Sages opened up the teachings of Religion (Jiao),
that things cannot be Transformed or Converted (Hua).
Concerning this sort of accomplishment of 'Turning Into' (Cheng),
a good example is the analogy of
