505 What Is the Aim of Your Pursuit?
1 If the object of your pursuit isn’t to seek the truth, then you may as well take advantage of this opportunity and return to the world to make a go of it. Wasting your time this way is really not worth it—why torture yourself? Couldn’t you enjoy all sorts of things out in the beautiful world? What use is it to wander around here looking for a place where you can be happy? The Son of man has nowhere to lay His head, so how could you have a place of ease? How could He create you a beautiful place of ease?
2 Aside from My judgment, today you can only receive teachings on the truth. You cannot gain comfort from Me nor can you gain the happy nest that you think of night and day. I will not bestow upon you the riches of the world. If you pursue genuinely, I am willing to give you the way of life in its entirety, to have you be like a fish back in water. If you do not pursue genuinely, I will take it all back. I am not willing to give the words from My mouth to those people who are greedy for comfort and are just like pigs and dogs!
