Wherever you would like to put this post will be good and helpful im sure
heres the traditional Text i found online ,ill highlight the parts of the text that im wanting clarity on
Ill list the Lines of this text that i want help with understanding and also translating to understandable clear English if you possibly can
I put this post in exploring Buddhism because i did not know where to put this post .
In this Line on the real heart mind i dont understand 道心者，本來不識不知，順帝之則之心
，為真心---- it seems to directly translate as follow the emperor principle heart, i cant understand it-- maybe you can clarify its meaning and give explanation?順帝之則之心
2 the next part is his secrets and key to understanding how to subdue(tame) the human heart/mind 降心者 ,降其人心之假也. So in this line 降心者，降其人心之假也。然降人心，非是守心空心，亦非是強制定心，須要順其自然
----what does Liu mean about one must follow this naturally? how does one do that? in one context does liu mean? in what way is he implying one should follow the heart mind naturaly to subdue it? im confused about his method of subduing the heart/mind here and how does he do it?
3 he further explains how to subdue(tame) the heart mind quoting a quote from Wuzhenpian (understanding reality- english-Thomas Cleary translated this book) 悟真雲：順其所欲，漸次導之 so does Liu say "follow the desires,gradually directing and guiding"? ---what method is Liu getting at here and how do i follow this? ,what is the books intent here and how do i understand this line so i can put into practice.
I know this line is important because he calls the two words wonderful secrets "只此二語，便是降心妙訣"
4 曰為者，心必降也；曰不為者，不強降也。降而不降，不降而降，有用用中無用，無功功裏施功矣--- here he says about not forceful subduing,as like above this seems to be his main device on how to tame the mind ,i get a feeling its not a form of sitting and meditating but a way to bring about Samadhi
，至堅至固，牢不可破....- im wanting a direct translation of each character here(so it will help with my chinese) and general explanation on this part
6 does this 煉己之功，莫先於降心
mean.--- "first there is none who do not first subdue the human heart mind ?"= first subdue the human heart
