The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Three: Practice


The Founding Master said, “Have you ever seen heavenly beings? Heavenly beings do not reside in some distant heavenly realm. The infants over there are heavenly beings: since they don’t have one iota of selfishness in their minds, they receive heaven’s endowment through their mothers, but as their self-consciousness begins gradually to grow, their endowment from heaven also gradually comes to an end. People cultivating the Way without selfish thoughts will receive immeasurable endowments from heaven, but as soon as they begin to have selfish thoughts, the path to heaven’s endowments will also be blocked.”
