not here [rumi].

There’s 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. Halfhearted holding back,
well-enough getting by?  Not here.
