True religions in their respective times are always uphill tasks and all human achievements are through uphill tasks and the pleasure-seekings of general non-religious societies are most often downhill tasks, they absolve you of your responsibilities and provide cheaper, easier pleasures and you feel easier and easier as if you are shedding weight but ultimately you find yourself at the lower end of the mountain at the very base and you can't survive because then there is no further downhill and you have reached the ultimate end. Then either you go mad because you can't see pleasure anywhere in any form because you have reached the ultimate end or you must turn back and start covering the same distance which you left behind. This is in reality the substance of the fight between religious and non-religious values. So an uphill task is definitely more difficult to follow in this sense but once you have gained heights and look down at the lower grounds you have left behind and then you know the pleasure and what it is to climb. (From the Question & Answer Session 5 January 1985). Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. ('The Holy Bible'. Proverbs 4: 23). © The Tahir Archive, 2012.
