“Undressing” (Rumi)

Learn the alchemy true human beings know: the moment you accept what troubles you’ve been given, the door will open. 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, then are taken off. That undressing, and the naked body underneath, is the sweetness that comes after grief.
