Alchemical work - know how to suffer to become a creator

Those who accept their difficulties and trials liberate the powers in their soul and spirit, and after a time they realise that something magnificent has occurred within them as a result. You must understand that this is the true work of alchemy: to extract from the raw, black, formless matter of suffering a matter that is precious, sparkling, iridescent and dazzling with a thousand colours. Those who do not know how to suffer resemble abandoned construction sites: when they wish to express themselves, they do not know what materials to use. They know nothing of the life of the soul and spirit – of its immensity, its depths and its heights. Only those who know how to suffer can become creators.
