Two Veils

Between God and His servant are just two veils;
all other veils become manifest
from these two: health and wealth.

He who is healthy says,
"Where is God? I don't know
and I don't see."

As soon as he begins to suffer,
he says, "Oh God! Oh God!",
and he begins sharing his secrets with Him
and talking to Him.

So you see that health was his veil, and
God was hidden under his pain.

So long as man has riches, he
gathers together all the means
of achieving his desires.
Night and day he busies himself
with them.

But as soon as he loses
his wealth, his ego weakens
and he turns round about God.
