29. The Master ordered the organizing of the Chŏngt’ohoe (Right Earth Association), a friendship and practice association of the wives of ordained male devotees: “Only when the earth is well prepared will all things grow properly; only when domestic assistance and spousal encouragement are solid can the Order’s workers serve the public selflessly.” He also said, “If the earth’s energy is right, then all things in the soil will grow properly; if wives offer encouragement properly and mothers influence their children properly, then their husbands and offspring will act and grow properly. These become the ground for properly building the Order and rectifying the world.”
