Many many of you are finishing your preparations for step 2. I know you are tired,but NOW is not the time to spare yourself!
You will retain what you study, you will get what you desire.
Most of all, our way is a way of sacrifice and baring pain in order to relieve the pain of others. When you study now, when you want to stop and rest, do NOT rest! Each moment of pain you experience is consciously undertaken in an attempt to improve yourself so you are skilled to take care of others.
When you take on this pain, you are helping to dispel the suffering of the world.
