It so easy and simple but very difficult

覇銷於物欲 覺吾生之可哀 夷猶於性眞 覺吾生之可樂 知其可哀則塵情立破 知其可樂則聖境自臻 (後 73)

Hope to make understood that getting caught up in material greed will bring to sadness of life. Hope to make understood that living according to sincere heart will enjoy the joy of life. Enlightenment of the suffering will sooner break away the attraction and attachment of material world. Realization of the joy will knock the door of sacred stage. (Book2 73)

The road to heaven is surprisingly easy. Let go of attachment to material things. However, it is surprisingly very difficult. So a saint cannot be anyone.
