解释 ( paraphrase )

道行增高一尺,魔怪跟着增高一丈。
这条谚语来源于佛教,用来告诫修行的人,道行的增高很不容易,而受到魔怪的诱惑丧失道行却很容易。 引申的意思是:成为一个好人需要经过很长时期的努力,变成一个坏人非常的快。

This proverb comes from Buddhism. It stresses that it is difficult to achieve goodness, which is easy to lose when the devil tempts us. The extended effort to become a good man, but one can easily learn to be a bad one.

道行:僧道修行的功夫。
         The attainments of a Taoist priest.
