Remember Dante. The key to salvation from hell is hidden in plain sight. On the gates of hell is written: "Abandon hope, everyone who enters here", the road to hell is paved with good intentions. And hell is created by love, but not the one that is real, but the one that passion, lies and fear.
One of the most important ideas of the play "Thunderstorm" Ostrovsky, that the path of passion, which rises man, like a tunnel leading to the underworld.

Do you think people who are afraid to suffer and seek bliss would agree to this?
Conscience is the voice of God. They say hell is when there is no God in man. Unscrupulous people are doomed to terrible suffering.
