Exertion

“It has been said in the Buddhist teachings that without exertion, you cannot journey on the path at all. When you are taking a vacation, you are very inspired to wake up in the morning, because you are to have a tremendous experience. Exertion is like the moment you wake up on a holiday trip: you trust that you are going to have a great time, but you also have to put your effort into it. So true exertion is devotion and delight, which is free from laziness.”
