37. The Master said, “Even when you are building a house, you need to have beams, posts, and rafters, as well as such insignificant things as a handful of sand and a piece of paper. Likewise, in establishing and developing this Order, major and minor talents in various areas must all come together and fulfill their respective duties. How beloved and precious, then, is each member in each area of our entire congregation! Thus, the Founding Master said, ‘All our senior and junior members should respect and rejoice in one another, even to the extent of carrying each another on their backs.’ We comrades must unify our thoughts and create a united force on behalf of this great enterprise by always loving, supporting, and respecting one another; and, even when a comrade has a certain fault, we should embrace, forgive, and guide that person. The good fortune of our Order will then be limitless.”
