The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Eleven: Maxims

26

The Founding Master said, “Even when one has practiced wholesomeness, if one resents others for ignoring it, a sprout of unwholesomeness will grow within that wholesomeness. Even when one has committed unwholesomeness, if one repents, a sprout of wholesomeness will grow within that unwholesomeness. Therefore, do not become conceited or self-satisfied with a moment of wholesomeness and thereby hinder your own progress; do not fall into degradation by giving up on yourself because of a moment of unwholesomeness.”
