Tractate of the Most High One
on Actions and Consequences
Chapter VI

Hope for Those Who Repent

1. When a person’s heart is moved by goodness, although the goodness has not yet been achieved, nevertheless felicitous spirits are already following him.
2. But when a person’s heart is moved by evil, although the evil has not yet been achieved, nevertheless spirits of misfortune are already following him.
3. A person who formerly did bad things but afterward repents and does no more evil, and continues in good behavior, gradually must obtain good fortune and happiness.
4. This is called “changing disaster into good fortune.”
5. Therefore a joyous man speaks what is good, thinks what is good, and does what is good;
6. each day he does these three things, and in three years Heaven will bequeath to him good fortune.
7. But an unlucky man is he who speaks what is evil, thinks what is evil, and does what is evil;
8. each day he does these three things, and in three years Heaven will strike him with misfortune.
9. Why would we not be diligent in following this?
