Michael asked: "What do you want?"Nikita answered: "I want you to fight, for me, for us! I don't need you as my partner in the field, I need you as my partner in my life. So fight! ...... You want to move on? I understand. But I will never move on from you."
Suddenly I realized the reason why I like this show, like Nikita. They fear nothing before all of the adversities, they fight for justice, which is considered to be their mission of life. They could have gave up on Division and hid to live a secret life, normal life, but they stay in the war of crime. That is why I like them. Adversities never stop them from doing what they want.
In the same episode, where Sean hasn't seen Alex for a month because she refused to quit for a normal life with him. He came back to Alex. He said: "I wanted you to make a choice, me or this place. That's why I left. " Alex:"How could I make a choice when you are already gone?" Sean: "That's why I'm here." Alex: "Look, what you said, about what most people would do? Don't ever expect that from me. Most people haven't seen their father murdered before their eyes. Most people aren't sold into slavery. I'm not most people. Never have been. " Then Sean understood and they got back together.
Of course I never went through what adversities Alex experienced in her life. But what she said just reminded me of my belief: you don't do it because it's what most people do. Most people want comfort and ease, instead of adversity, which is not what I want in my life. And I know, even though you don't 'want' adversity, adversity wants you, for good.
People lie to themselves always. I do too. I lied to myself that I could find someone else as good as this one if this relationship didn't work out. I know that is a lie. A Baha'i told me yesterday:"You can change your work and study easily. But if you miss a right person, you miss him for ever."
I know that thou art in difficulty, but this difficulty is conducive to the everlasting felicity and this weakness is followed by the supreme strength. Consider thou how the faithful women in the time of Christ, and after the departure of His Highness, underwent hardships! What difficulties did they not bear; and what calamities did they not endure! But adversity and trial, misfortune and derision, became the cause of imperishable and deathless glory and rest.
(‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Tablets of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá v2, p. 264-265)
Look thou around the world of existence: A little worldly transaction cannot be brought about except through surmounting many an obstacle. How much more important are the objects of the Supreme World! Certainly there existeth troubles, trials, afflictions, persecution, censure and contempt. When thou didst occupy thy time in the past to give out religious exhortations and advices, thou experienced some persecutions and trouble. But thou canst not realize in this present moment what great ordeals are in store and what unbearable calamities, affliction and adversity exist, and that to give up life is the easiest of all those calamities. But the end of all these is bliss, overflowing joy, everlasting exultation, happiness and supreme contentment. It is eternal life, never ending glory, a lordly gift and divine sovereignty!
(‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Tablets of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá v3, p. 547)
The advanced men of all time have ever been persecuted and continually in adversity.
