The world does not refrain from speaking the truth. Whenever a person is doing something, the heaven is watching. When a person is speaking, the heaven is listening. The universe's "right" will always be "right", "wrong" will always be "wrong". Karma, Causes and Effect cannot be changed. Right and Wrong can thus not change its position. "A good person will be bullied, the heaven does not bully; People are afraid of evil, the heaven is not afraid. The Right and Wrong will return you a justice, before the act of causes and effect.

Right and Wrong, Good and Evil, Causes and Effect is clear. Alas, many people had been entangled within the right and wrong quarrel, life is not liberated. There are also people who cannot tolerate rumours and use suicide to prove one's cleaniness. In fact, "a clean person is self-clean, a muddy person is self-muddy. When right and wrong quarrels (defamation, rumours) reaches a wise person, one should act towards "Don't say anything about right and wrong (dispute), Don't listen anything about right and wrong, Don't respond anything about right and wrong, Don't spread anything about right and wrong, Don't be afraid of right and wrong". What can "right and wrong" do towards me?"

Anyone who say about right and wrong will be a "right and wrong" (quarrel) person. We only need to have a clear conscience towards our mind and heart, it might not necessarily be just as one wishes. We only need to act right, do right, faced with "right and wrong" (quarrel), what should we be afraid of ?
