One should succeed in being fortified with joy

269.  No coercion whatsoever should obstruct the path, but it is permitted to give a torch to everyone on a long journey.  Enlightenment alone can help one to comprehend freedom of choice, therefore enlightenment is the affirmation of being.      -M:  Fiery World 1933

425.  People are unwilling to imagine that their earthly life is shorter than the very briefest stop of a railway train.  The worthy wayfarer, in a short night's lodging, is concerned not with troubling his host, for his consciousness is directed toward the goal of his journey.  But travelers of the Great Path often think only about the night's lodging, unconcernedly forgetting about their destination.     -M:  Fiery World 1934

20.  Touchiness is not suitable for a long journey.  This does not mean that we seek only supernal perfections. We merely forewarn as to what load should not be taken along.  One should succeed in being fortified with joy and in testing it in diverse circumstances and in all kinds of weather.  One should not torture and torment oneself, but one should make tests in order to ascertain the measure of one's bodily endurance.   -Morya:  Brotherhood 1937

147.  It is impossible to exclude from the rainbow even one single tint.  Likewise it is impossible to take away one single link from the Teaching of Life.  The rainbow manifests a full spectrum, and the complete Teaching of Life likewise equips for the journey on all paths.    --Morya:  Brotherhood 1937
in Prayer & Meditation, 1978
