"Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial" (James, 1:12 )
While our spiritual ship navigates through the waters of inferiority, we cannot maintain immunity from harsh inferior conflicts. Primarily in the corporal sphere, every time that we intend the improvement of the soul, making use of the work and obstacles in the world, we should be on the look-out for the multiplication of the difficulties that we come across, right in the middle of the road of illuminated knowledge.
In opposition to our great desire for clarification, there are thousands of millenniums of shadows. Interfering with our most humble aspiration for advancement in righteousness, there were centuries in which we took pleasure in evil.
For this reason, in spite of the blessings from on High, so many temptations exist on the path of the disciples.
Sometimes the student feels he is well prepared to overcome the beastly dragons that surround his doors; however, when he least expects it, the degrading suffestions pry upon him, obliging him once again to engage in a difficult battle.
Therefore, it is apparent that not even the grave exonerates us from the obstacles with the shadows, whose roots extend into our spiritual organization. Only the death of the imperfection within each one of us, will liberate us from it.
Let there be constructive tolerance surrounding human advancemente, as the evil insinuations will surround us everywhere, while we delay in the partial achievement of righteousness.
We shall only achieve liberation when we obtain complete light.
Fully understanding the importance of the matter, the Apostle proclaimed, "Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial". At the present time it is impossible to reach any reference of absolute triumph, as we are still so far apart from an angelic state. Nevertheless, blessed shall we be if we go through these types of battles, controlling the impulse of our least advanced sentiments, thereby, perfecting it, little by little, through our personal efforts, so that we do not lifelessly give in to the inferior suggestions that seek to convert us into living instruments of evil.
