In the Work you must know that nothing will be forgiven.
This knowledge will give you strength and a real incentive to continue to work on yourself.
In life you may expect forgiveness, help, concern from the others, or at least hope for it. In a school of responsibility nothing will be forgiven, and all debts have to be paid. Suppose for example that some benevolent or rather stupid “god” had the willingness or the power to forgive your debts and wipe them out, it would be the greatest misfortune that could ever happen to you. You would stop working on yourself and repeat the same life of nonsense you were used to live.
