To intentionally go through hardship or endure physical pain in exchange for the fulfillment
of some wish is unworthy of a human being who wishes to evolve spiritually. If a person feels
in his soul the urge to pledge to his God, then he must commit to striving to improve in
everything, seeking to keep his inner volition always pure, and also take care of his words,
thoughts and deeds….
The person who strives to improve in some way shows humility and goodwill, while one who
yields himself to suffer pain and deprivation shows unlimited vanity and conceit. The first
shows respect for the Will of the Almighty, while the latter reveals contempt, supposing, in
his puerile imagination, to be able to trade with it in some way.
