As Long As You Don’t…

Peace, one and all…

As long as you don’t feel pain, you’ll never reach the remedy.
As long as you don’t give up your life, you’ll never reach union with the Beloved.
As long as you don’t go into the fire, like Abraham the Friend of God,
You’ll never reach the Fountain of Life, like Khizr
Mevlana, Quatrain 1721
