The author of the Imitation said with great acuteness that "the fewer there be who follow the way to heaven, the harder that way is to find"—and, he might have added, the harder to follow.  Albert Jay Nock, "A Cultural Forecast," On Doing the Right Thing and other essays, 1928, p. 92
So I think that one will not find salvation by looking for it, but only by trying to imitate Noriko Hirayama in the particular events of one's life.
