“Not Here” (Rumi)

There is courage involved if you want to become truth. There is a broken-open place in a lover.

Where are those qualities of bravery and sharp compassion

in this group? What’s the use of old and frozen thought?

I want a howling hurt. This is not a treasury

where gold is stored. This is for copper.

We alchemists look for talent that can heat up and change. Lukewarm won’t do. Half-hearted holding back, well-enough getting by? Not here.
