The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Four: The Way of Humanity

29

The Founding Master said, “A person who wants all things in the world to be just as he wishes is as foolish as a person who builds a house in sand and presumes he will live in splendor for thousands of years. A wise person will be satisfied and grateful if six out of ten times things work out in life the way one wished. Moreover, even if all ten things turn out to one’s liking, one does not monopolize those satisfying things but enjoys sharing them with all the world. For that reason, not only will one avoid misfortunes, but one’s blessings will always be infinite.”
