17. The Master said, “The master takes the lead in all matters and has no complaints because he is the owner. He is concerned about and takes care of all his workers, whether they are at the center or on the fringes of the business, shares all hardships and joys with the entire group, does not abandon the enterprise regardless of either favorable or adverse conditions, and works hard till the very end to bring it to completion. Since you have all joined this Order of the great Way, you should be sincere masters of this public path, by reflecting often on yourselves to see how well you are maintaining a master’s mentality.”
