This path is difficult, the work is real and the journey is long. If it were easy, everyone would be enlightened. We can take inspiration from the knowledge that others have walked this path before us, and faced the same obstacles we face. And we can be confident that with effort, each of us can realize this "jewel of truth," and discover what is truly valuable: the ground of being, the wellspring of compassion.
