“We’re taught that discomfort is a sign of something going wrong, and we need to eliminate it as soon as we can through willful strategies. If one is to live according to the truth, one ends up having a love affair with discomfort. That’s the burning Rumi refers to, I want burning, the burning of standing there being true to your own divine dementia without cursing yourself or anyone else. That gives the divine a prayer of being able to function through you.”
