【Mind intent on liberation 】– No second path
Once you understand this mundane world, (you will realize that) there is no second path. Oftentimes people would say, “Ah-ya, it doesn’t work, I need to back out.” If backing out would lead to happiness, I would be the first to back out, I would definitely not want to inflict myself with such pain. It is because I now understand clearly and plainly, that there is no other path to take. Even though there is suffering now, but your monumental efforts will give you the opportunity to be freed from suffering. If you can't even put up with such minor suffering now, and decide to back out, boundless miseries await you. If you can't even put up with this minor suffering and decide to back out, will you then be able to bear the boundless miseries? This concept is of utmost importance. Why do we want to back out? It is because we are muddleheaded! Therefore, all these are truly to help us. So, even though it is not elaborated here, it holds the greatest importance, the greatest importance for your cultivation!
