26. The Master said, “Truth being obscured, one is dragged; being dragged, one goes astray; going astray, one commits transgressions. Since foolish persons are attached to thoughts only of themselves, they become obscured by selfhood and all their functions go astray; but when it comes to criticizing others, they have no obscurity at all and thus are ever clear. If they redirect this clarity and use it to rectify their own faults, they will attain great wisdom and great blessings.”
