Rank of Righteousness

A man attains the rank of righteousness only after passing through these six steps:
1) He must close the door of bounty and open the door of hardships.
2) He must close the door of dignity and open the door of humility.
3) He must close the door of repose and open the door of striving.
4) He must close the door of sleep and open the door of vigilance.
5) He must close the door of wealth and open the door of poverty.
6) He must close the door of worldly expectation and open the door of preparedness for death.
