Once joining an organization, no matter it is a religious organization, political organization, or a group of gangsters, you lose the freedom in lifetime and soul. No one in an organization can speak and act freely. A man without freedom is much the same as a sheep in the fold. Anyone who belongs to an organization would have a twisted mind and imperfect personality. The longer he stays in an organization, the more likely he becomes a paranoia, because long time nurtured by the idea and behavior of the organization would change one into a screw of that organization, and in the end he will become senseless even to himself.. The situation is the same as a tiger being enclosed in the zoo. As mountains become less familiar, the tiger would not have the courage of roaring among mountains any longer; and it would regard the world outside the cage as a prison while itself is in a prison. Actually, being a member of an organization is gambling undecided prospect; being a member of a religious organization is gambling soul; being a member of a political party is gambling fate or future, even gambling for the two. Therefore, all of the followers of religions and political parties in the world are gamblers, and there is very little rationality in them whatsoever. These people are clever in trifles but stupid in important things. Of course, those leaders who jostle against each other and eventually succeed can be excluded. Lifechanyuan is totally different from the above various organizations because the later are just tied by relationship of a same organization instead of by friendship and what exists in them is only the party spirit, while in Lifechanyuan people are tied by friendship rather than by a same organization or party. What brings us together is that we are in consonance with each other, love each other and we share the same ideal and goal. Thus, the relationship among us is that of friends, brothers and sisters, lovers, and what links us together is not the collective will, but friendship and our worship for the Greatest Creator. Therefore, Lifechanyuan primarily focuses on human nature and friendship, gives full play to the special skill, intelligence, and the truth, kindness, beauty inside each academician's character, and emphases on the fully enjoyment of joy and happiness of friendship.
Religious organizations have various ceremonies and regular gatherings, while Lifechanyuan doesn't have these.
Political parties have statutes and organizational disciplines, while Lifechanyuan doesn't have them too.
The members of a religion or political party must hand in an amount of money, while this is not the case in Lifechanyuan.
Each religion or political party has a rigorous organization form and struggle for power and status, while Lifechanyuan is different; the position of each Chanyuan-celestial is decided by destination and will last lifetime which in no circumstances should be replaced by others. For example, Crane- celestial is the General President of Lifechanyuan; this position will belong to him forever, even after he leaves the mortal world for the thousand-year world, he will still be the General President. Another example for the position of 8 sages of Lifechanyuan, once he or she be among 8 sages of Lifechanyuan, he or she will be in this position forever. Other positions such as Saints of Yin and Yang, Four Heavenly Kings, 8 Masters, 16 Zens, etc, all of them will last lifetime. This is the same as the stars in the sky, there is no replacement for this one and that one; each star has its particular position and function.
It is common that every religion or political party only protect its own interests (of course, what is left may be granted to the others). But Lifechanyuan protects for the interests of whole mankind.
Religious organizations or political parties have conditions for enrolling members, and they only open to those supporting them, while Lifechanyuan open to all human beings. No matter who you are, either religious follower, partisan ringster, leader or democratic personages, even habitual loafer, you could be a Chanyuan-celestial of Lifechanyuan if you are a saint.
There is no rule and regulations, no rights and obligations in Lifechanyuan. People are independent from each other, following their own inclinations. We will have a party when we are cheerful, singing and dancing; we will have no party in one even two years when we are under a cloud. Our causes depend on the drive force in every celestial's mind; we carry out our enterprise on their own initiatives and we do not compel anyone. There is a moral court deep in our heart which enables us to make self-confession, self-lawsuit, and self-judgment. There is no need to interfere us.
Xue Feng is only a guide of Lifechanyuan, who is not qualified to imperiously order others and give commands. Chanyuan-celestials respect him because of his wisdom and friendship as well as his sincere respect to them, and because of the same value in spirit from the inner heart. Xue Feng will never impose his will on any celestial who is unwilling to accept his opinion.
