Rough spots in life, the

Thanks to them we can elevate ourselves

May 8th 2018
Sometimes, you go climbing in the mountains. You must have noticed that it is the rough edges of the rocks that enable you to climb. How could you do so if the rocks were smooth? So, why is it that you fail to apply what you know about rock-climbing to this great journey called life that is much more meaningful? Why do you want your life to be smooth, and free of rough edges? In such conditions, you will never reach the top, and more importantly, you will tumble on your way down! Luckily for you, life is full of rough spots, and it is thanks to them that you are still alive. So, do not complain about obstacles, inconveniences, and enemies: without them, you would have nothing to hold on to in order to climb. People who want an easy, peaceful, opulent life, do not realize that in reality, they are asking for their downfall. Fortunately, heaven does not listen to them, it knows what they need in order to progress.
