Yŭ Yì Yǐ Chéng Zhèng Fú Huái
Like having Wings for Assistants (Yu Yi),
there is True Accomplishment (Cheng Zheng),
with help raised up through the Hand and Ankle.
Xúe Dào Jù Bèi Shēn Tǐ Qīng Jŭ Huāng Huāng Hū Hū Rú Yŏu Máo
Yŭ Lái Jí Jŭ Shēng Gù-Yuè Fú Huái
To study and learn the Way (Dao) completely,
one needs to prepare the body without harshness,
so that it can be raised up to act as if suddenly in a trance,
possessing then feathers in a plume,
invited to now begin rising upwards like the climbing Sun.
Therefore this is called
'to help raising up with the Hand and Ankle' (Fu Huai).
Zhǎng Shēng Jiŭ Shì Nǎi Fēi Qù
[This is] Longevity (Zhang Sheng).
Looked at for a long time,
only then does it fly away.
Dé Dào Bù Sǐ Dù Shì Zhǎng Cún Nǎi Néng Bái Rì Hún Fēi Rù Tài
To aquire or obtain Eternal Life (Bu Shi) and Immortality (Du Shi),
one needs Fullness of Existence (Zhang Cun).
Then there is the energy and capability so that even in the broad daylight
the Hun (the Superior Vital Spirit) can fly swiftly into the Great Purity (Tai Qing).
