Be content with overcoming all difficulties on the way to heaven

Although the path lies before you and you can follow it if you wish, it is nonetheless an ascending path full of many difficulties and obstacles. This glorious city of light and love is, as it were, on the top of a high hill or mountain, and there is no way to it, except for ascending and difficult steps. But although the ascent will be difficult and the path full of trials, it is still worth taking the time to meet them all in order to come and settle in such a glorious city.

Be ready to endure trials, meet toil and overcome hardships. What is it all compared to the sweet rest at the end of the journey? Be ready to overcome the natural downward inclination of flesh and blood, and rush forward and upward for the reward. With each step, it will be easier and easier to climb, and the higher you climb, the more you will rejoice at the glorious prospect that opens before you and the closer view of that heavenly city where you will soon find peace forever.
