Always check your inner state

Always check your inner state with the lord of your heart.
Copper doesn’t know it’s copper, until it’s changed to gold. 

Your loving doesn’t know its majesty, until it knows its helplessness.

These gifts from the Friend, a robe of skin and veins, a teacher within, wear them and become a school, with a greater sheikh nearby.  
Jalal ad-Din Rumi
