You see, the difficult thing is:
When you start to move in spirituality, it's very easy to bear the criticism of the world and the roughness of the world, but it's the criticism of "saints" that gets you down.
Somebody says, "Ohhh, don't do that. You're getting too serious!"
You know, "our" people will warn you: "Don't get too spiritual." You never hear them say, "Don't get too rich! Don't get too much education!" but rather, "Don't get too spiritual..."
Do you know why?
Because they've been dragging their feet for the last ten to twenty years, and they're afraid you'll get ahead of them.
