The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Four: The Way of Humanity


The Founding Master said, “When people try to accomplish something in this world, they may receive others’ approval or criticisms. If they simply feel pleased or displeased without giving it any thought, they are just like a child. When others criticize me, I must examine the situation, and if my conscience tells me I have no reason to be ashamed, then even though thousands of people criticize me, I must proceed apace with indomitable courage. On the other hand, however broad the approval, if my conscience tells me it is something I shouldn’t do, then I shouldn’t hesitate to throw it out like an old shoe. This is what a practitioner with self-power does.”
