7:13 No matter how much wealth or authority someone may have, if his or her negative causality appears, he or she must suffer the consequences through illness or other adverse circumstances. No matter how impoverished a life someone may lead, he or she can live joyously without worry or hardship as long as his or her mind is sincere enough.
