A VERY IMPORTANT ETHIC TO OBSERVE
Master Jun Hong Lu: Many people think that moral ethic is about aiding others and performing good deeds. However, it is not so. Please remember, as humans, it is very important to know that “Forbearance is a moral ethic”. A person who is forbearing is a person with moral ethics.
For example, there are two people quarrelling on the street. One party is berating the other, while the other party does not retaliate but simply stands at the side and keeps smiling back politely. Bystanders will surely say that the latter is someone with virtue, am I right? The same applies to couples who quarrel. The husband is scolding, while his wife just keeps quiet and smiles politely saying “I am sorry.” Which of these two persons you think is virtuous? If your boss is reprimanding you, and you go “I’m sorry, I will do a better job next time”. Do you think you will be fired? A person with forbearance is a virtuous person. He is a person with wisdom. Please remember, a person who gets angry frequently is a person who lacks wisdom.< Words of Wisdom
