840 You Must Have Resolution and Courage to Be Perfected

Today you must consider

your future path.

Don’t be content with how

you are conquered.


Resolve to be perfect;

don’t think you’re incapable.

Does truth pick favorites

or oppose men?


If you pursue the truth,

can it overwhelm you?

If you stand firm for justice,

will it knock you down?


If you truly pursue life,

can life elude you?


If you’re without the truth,

it’s not that truth ignores you,

but rather that you stay

away from the truth.


If you cannot stand for justice,

that does not mean it’s flawed,

but rather you believe

it distorts the facts.


If you’ve sought but not gained life,

it’s not that life has no conscience;

rather, you have no conscience for life,

driving it away.


If you live in the light

yet cannot gain the light,

it’s not that light can’t shine on you;

rather, you ignore it’s there.


Because of this, the light

has quietly departed from you.


If you do not pursue,

then you’re absent of worth,

no courage or spirit

to resist the darkness.


You’re too weak to escape Satan

laying siege to you.

You just want to live in peace

and die in ignorance.


It’s your duty to pursue

truly being conquered.

If you’re content in this way,

you’ll drive out the light.
