The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Five: Cause and Effect

22

The Founding Master said, “If people are reckless in pursuing all kinds of unwholesome conduct and does not discipline themselves, then others will definitely discipline them; and if others do not discipline them, then Truth definitely will. Therefore, sensible people abstain from committing unwholesome conduct before others stop them and willingly submit to their advice before Truth stops them. Thus, they need never be nervous that their unwholesomeness will be exposed, and their mind will always be at peace.”
