RELATIONSHIP OF MERITS AND HINDRANCES

Q:

Is it true that hindrances will increase in tandem with more merits accrued by a person?

A:

The greater the desire to attain enlightenment, the greater the demonic hindrances will be.  The more a person is being respected, the more jealousy will be invited.  If you are to become a model employee, others will be jealous of your status.  The taller a tree, the stronger the wind and rain it will have to withstand.  No one will pay attention to a sapling.
