Can one worship God and pray for blessing? (39)
If one worships God with the intent to pray for blessing, one
must prevent oneself from making mistakes and repent one’s sins.
Otherwise, he will be punished, despite all his prayers. However,
a practitioner of Tao places emphasis on practicing Tao, and places
little importance on praying for blessings. In history, many kings
and emperors were greatly blessed and where are they now?
This is why the Fifth Patriarch of Tien-Tao said “The mortal
knows only to pray for blessing but never ponders that if the
True Self is lost, what blessing is there to pray for?”
