Our struggle is, in the end,
a struggle with the self
---a struggle that must be
Like muscle training,
developing the soul is an
extremely painful process.
Endure and persevere.
Tangible things may get stolen,
disintegrate, break, disappear;
the invisible treasure of the soul
Whatever pain you suffer
will be rewarded in full.
Wonderful fruits will be yours.
