2. The Master said, “Since our target is the world, do not be satisfied with small achievements, nor be disappointed by minor tribulations we might face. Mere observation of the energy that has been surging since the celebratory general congress at the conclusion of the first generation shows us that the day is not far off when we will benefit from our fortune’s full energy. The fortune of heaven and earth, too, is like the changing of the seasons. Even though it may seem coldest following the winter solstice, in actuality that is when the first hint of spring, the single-yang energy, appears. The cold winds of January and February may make it seem that spring is far away, but once the eastern breeze of March begins to blow, we suddenly witness the fullness of spring in heaven and earth.”
