The Alchemy True Human Beings Rumi

Welcome difficulty.
Learn the alchemy True Human Beings know:
the moment you accept what troubles
you’ve been given, the door opens.

Welcome difficulty as a familiar comrade.
Joke with torment brought by the Friend.

Sorrows are the rags of old clothes
and jackets that serve to cover,
and then are taken off.

That undressing,
and the beautiful naked body underneath,
is the sweetness that comes after grief.

~ Rumi
(The Alchemy True Human Beings Know)
