That which is in the way, opposes, or hinders progress. All the things that are worth doing and worth achieving are those that are the most difficult to perform. The path of attainment is not an easy one. It is full of difficulties, of obstacles, of hamperings that come in the way.

Character building, and the way one faces difficulties, determines the growth of the soul. If an individual could allow the highest that is within, to express itself without difficulty, it would have little value. The soul that lives only in its own butterfly-happiness and chases always the illusion and shadow must one day learn to touch reality. Those who appear to have an easy time have yet to face their hardest road.

There is no obstacle worthy of overcoming, that is so strong, that cannot be overcome by the use of one's latent powers which lie within.
