“Truth smiles through the burden of life.”

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

“Someone was vexed and downcast —
Both outwardly and inwardly; many things
For which he had toiled, had not been successful.
Then he had this experience: despite the pain,
His soul was gladdened, and all the more so;
It was as if the contradiction drew him upwards.
It is not right that the soul should consume itself,
When it knows that God is near.
Thou hast heard about the deceiving devil.
If thou carriest the Lord in thy heart —
Because thou hast been faithful to Him throughout the years —
Truth smiles through the burden of life.”

– Frithjof Schuon
