What you still need to know is this: before a dream is realized,
the Soul of the World tests everything that was learned along the way.
It does this not because it is evil, but so that we can, in addition to realizing our dreams, master the lessons we’ve learned as we’ve moved toward that dream.
That’s the point at which, as we say in the language of the desert, one ‘dies of thirst just when the palm trees have appeared on the horizon.’
Every search begins with beginner’s luck.
And every search ends with the victor’s being severely tested.

She is that maze, the one you would love to chase.
She is the faith, quite missing nowadays.
And her heart is a rave, with hopeless barricades.
She is the one, whose tears flow, just as lavishly, as her laughter roars!
