Pain is inevitable.As long as we live we are going to experience it. Sometimes we tend to make things more complicated than they already are. The simplest thing is to observe and be aware
Often times the most simple things to do are the hardest. If you’re goong through pain in heart,body or soul or are going through a hard time, you’re not alone.
We live in times that seems to be providing cracks on everything. Truth and the matter is we are all cracked open at some degree.
Other people’s words or actions or even our mistakes leaves us with a hole in our hearts. This is the point where we should visit one of the most powerful quote by the Persian poet Rumi when he said “the wound is the place where light enters”.
That hole left in us by other people’s words and actions is what we should see as a dark tunnel that leads us inside our hearts and minds.
We should be aware of our pain and it that awareness will come an opportunity to let the light in. The deeper into the pain we go,the more capacity for both pain and bliss we can have.
Awarenesa is the first step to any kind of healing, overcoming or solving. Become aware of your pain, name what you feel and honor it,let yourself feel the emotion,not just talk about it.
When you make sense of what the emotions are telling you,you can identify the need or goal that the emotion is organizing you to attain.
For me being cracked open gives access to the deeper parts of our hearts and shines light to the hidden places of our souls.
We need healing.There has been many definitions of healing and some describe it as a process of bringing together aspects of one’s self,body-mind-spirit at deeper levels of inner-knowing leading toward intergration and balance with each aspect having equal value and importance.
Healing is associated with wholeness and wholeness is experienced in connection with others. Be in a relationship with yourself,with your body ,to the culture and the significant others.
To be whole as a person is to be whole amongst others,to be whole in the presence of others.
We find this in an African phrase: A person is a person through other people.
