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?”
