Wounds of Light

RumiEight centuries ago, the mystical Sufi poet Rumi wrote:

“The wound is the place where the light enters you.”

In throes of pain there is always the nectar of possibility.

Each wound to our hearts pierces into a power for moving closer to our true selves.

Everything begins to shift.

sunrisePriorities rearrange themselves.

The fog of self-centeredness disappears and the truth steps forth.

“The wound is the place where the light enters you.”

    I wonder if that is why so many people hang on to their woundedness, telling the same sad story again and again. Might it be that they are hoping for the light to enter? If that’s so, then deeply listening might help some, as we help them give their story its own light.
