The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Four: The Way of Humanity


Concerned that some of his young male and female disciples were straying because they had not found the right path of practice, the Founding Master said, “There are some of you who advance quickly in your practice in the beginning but digress later, and others who learn slowly in the beginning but advance quickly later. I have foreseen your tendencies, and guided each of you appropriately. But if you are over thirty, your lifelong character has by now been mostly decided. I myself am rather worried about those who have not yet matured, but this is something that should be a matter of great concern to the persons themselves.”
