Why are there all these Shouts?

Peace, one and all…

‘Why is love for You such a wise one and a teacher?
[And] why is affection for You such a subtle foundation?
Why do I tremble [with fear] at love if it is not pleasant?
And if love is pleasant, why are there all these shouts [for help]?’
Mevlana, Quatrain 145
