What better to way to expand on this than with another Rumi quote:
“Through Love all that is bitter will be sweet, through Love all that is copper will be gold, through Love all dregs will become wine, through Love all pain will turn to medicine.” – Rumi
In life we cannot and will not escape pain and suffering but what we can do is take the messages from our experiences and turn them into catalysts to project us toward more JOY and BEAUTY and greater LOVE.
The greater the suffering, the greater the JOY on the other side. I have experienced great suffering in my life but I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt, it has shown me that when life is sweet, it becomes even sweeter….. but it has been the pain that has shown me this. Yes the GIFT of pain!
Right now, many of us are in more pain and fear than ever before and it is understandable but it is also an opportunity. It is an opportunity to take the messages from our pain and fear and cast them upon the sweetness. The darkest depth of despair also brings to light what is beautiful and also is a doorway for our heart’s expansion.
Once again, a Rumi quote comes to mind:
“The wound is the place where the light gets in”Rumi
I encourage you to see your pain in a different light and to make it ‘light’ and easy. Ask your pain what messages are there for you to use as stepping stones to bringing more JOY and more JOYous moments into the precious time that is left for you here on your earthly journey. 🙂
In Love & Light and with a Light Heart…..
