1 No prophet tells people not to bear hardships. To bear hardships is to strive. It requires both body and mind to strive and to be disciplined. One has to endure such a process.
2 A common adage says: “only those who can painstakingly endure hardship are a cut above.” The hardships that no one else wants to accept and the ones that people cannot stand, let me do it. I will take it not just for a day or two. If you can take it for a long time, your illness will disappear and your karmic obstacles will be eliminated because to forebear hardship is to eliminate karmic obstacles.
