The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Four: The Way of Humanity


The Founding Master said, “I always feel sorry for the strong who do not know how to play the role of the strong. One who is already strong must constantly help and guide the weak, and encourage them to become as strong as oneself; then one’s strength will become an eternal strength, and one will be forever respected as a forerunner and pioneer. Nowadays, the strong in many cases resort only to oppressing and deceiving the weak; how can this lead to eternal strength? The weak need not remain perpetually weak: if gradually their spirits open and they recover their inherent vital energy, then they also will some day stand in the position of the strong. When the weak awaken and stand in the position of the strong, then the position of those who oppressed and deceived them will naturally deteriorate. Therefore, really wise persons will always help all the more when others are poor and protect them all the more when they are weak, in order eternally to preserve their own strength.”
