Do not grieve that the Lord is testing you and putting you to the ordeal of undergoing the tests, for it is only when you are tested that you can assure yourself of success or become aware of your limitations. You can then concentrate on the subjects in which you are deficient and pay more intensive attention, so that you can pass in them too when you are tested again. Good students don’t study for the examination at the last moment; they study well in advance and be ready with the needed knowledge and the courage and confidence born out of that knowledge and skill. What you have studied well in advance must be revised over and over in the mind, just before going to the examination; that is all the preparation that is necessary! This is the pathway to victory. (Divine Discourse, Shivarathri, March 1963)
