Difficulties are sent to us exclusively to make the Realization more perfect. Each time we try to realize something and meet with a resistance or an obstacle or even a failure- what seems to be a failure- we should never forget that it is exclusively, absolutely needed , so that The Realization may be more perfect.
So this habit of cringing, of getting discouraged or even feeling uncomfortable, or of abusing and telling yourself : " There! Again I have made a mistake "- all that is absolute foolishness.
Simply tell yourself : " We dont know how to do things as they ought to be done ; well, they are being done for us,come what may! " And if we could see to what extent all that seems to be, yes, a difficulty, a mistake, a failure, an obstacle- all that is just to help us, so that the Realization is clearly understood. Once you know that, everything becomes easy.
Shocks and trials always come as a Divine Grace to show us the points in our being where we fall short and the movements in which we turn our back on our soul by listening to the clamour of our mental and vital being.
Be absolutely convinced that everything that happens, happens in order to give us precisely the lesson we needed.
If we know how to accept these spiritual blows with due humility, we are sure to cover a great distance at a single bound.
