Count it a grace that loss comes from the lane of love:
Let go of metaphorical love, the goal is love for the Real.
The warrior gives a wooden sword to his son
so that he may become a champion in battle.
Love for a human being is that sword.
When the trial comes to its end, you will love the All-Merciful

Mevlana, Kulliyat 336-338, trans. W C Chittick
