56. The Master said, “What is most important in a human being is the mind. The value of one’s life depends on whether or not one’s mind is righteous. The rise and fall or prosperity and decay of a family, society, or nation will be determined by their leaders’ state of mind. If the leaders of our Order handle all matters fairly and justly by staying grounded in righteousness, the congregation will not lose its confidence in them and will accumulate authentic practice and merit without wandering away along deluded paths, and this Order will stay prosperous forever.”
