Are always favourable for those who want to progress

March 25th 2013
Whatever the material circumstances you have to live in, realize they are not the determining factor. Or more exactly, they are the determining factor only in the sense that they force you to work on yourself. When you cannot progress and you do not want to fall back, all you can do is go down inside yourself, like a pearl fisher diving into the depths of the ocean. Or leap up so high you reach the stars. Yes, those circumstances that appear so unfavourable are in fact the best ones. You must not become resigned to poverty and hardship, and you must not allow yourself to be paralysed by difficulties, but only experience them as a spur to go in search of true riches.
