The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Three: Practice


The Founding Master said, “You must foresee that there comes a moment of great danger when you are proceeding with your practice or your work. For practitioners, the moment of great danger occurs when various types of wisdom begin to open. For workers, it occurs when various rights and powers begin to devolve to them. This is because, when persons of lesser spiritual capacity begin to acquire a little wisdom, they could lose their dedication to great practice and easily become satisfied with petty wisdom; and, by acquiring a few rights and powers, the workers become selfish, greedy, and arrogant, no longer focusing on advancing the project. At such a time, if practitioners and workers are not careful, they will cause themselves to fall into the abyss.”
