Masnavi of Rumi. Health and wealth

Between man and God there are only 2 veils, health and wealth; and all other arise from these two. A healthy person will say; “Where is God. I don’t know where He is. I can’t see Him.” Yet this very same person, when troubled by pain or sickness will begin to cry our “O God, O God. You see the health was veiling that man from God, who was concealed beneath the threshold of pain. So long man has his wealth and possessions; he can satisfy his wants and occupy himself day and night. The moment destitution rears its head this same man’s soul turns feeble and he turns to God.
