Tai Shang Gan Ying Pian

Tai Shang Gan Ying Pian was the ancient book that taught human beings to have luck in their life. Let's study this treatise bit by bit. This book called:" Treatise of the exalted one on response and retribution.
Part one: Introduction-the universal truth.
THE Exalted One says:
Curses and blessings do not come through gates, but man himself invites their arrival.
The reward of good and evil is like the shadow accompanying a body.....
My view:
Everyday we read the newspapers, we can see so many people were convicted in court. They were committing serious crime like murdering, stealing, sex-related crimes,etc. They were probably sent to prison or fined or hanged depend on the seriousness of the crimes.
Their misfortunes or luck were made themselves indeed. Yes, they were suffering from their own bad deeds.
So, we all must know we are the one decide our own destinies.
What is your view on part one?

I think there are misfortunes people create for themselves, and misfortunes that occur by chance which have nothing to do with whether one has been "good" or "bad".

"Curses and blessings do not come through gates, but man himself invites their arrival." Whether I agree with this or not, I love the way it's put.

I'm with Nothingprofound. Some misfortunes happen by chance, some are self-created. Either way, how we handle these misfortunes shows our true character.
