"The spiritual aspirant is never helpless. The entire existence is supporting him in his arduous struggle, for he is searching for something which is true to all.
One may dislike a certain thing of the world, but Truth can be hated by none! If all the fourteen worlds were to face him in battle, the spiritual aspirant would count them for a straw!
For he is the Immortal Spirit, the ruler of the heaven and earth, and the universe at large!"

- Swami Sivananda
