The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Twelve: Exemplary Acts

18

The Founding Master discarded nothing needlessly, whether it was a piece of paper, a pencil stub, or a piece of string, saying: “No matter how abundant certain things may be, if a person does not know how to use them sparingly, he will receive the retribution of poverty. Water may be abundant in the world but, if a person wastes it needlessly, he will experience the causal retribution of being reincarnated where water is scarce and of suffering a water shortage.”
