RUMI or THE WOUND THE LIGHT THE HEART THE SKY

Today, in honor, I share two quotes from Rumi specifically, who I spent a lot of time with last night inspired by a young mind and heart.

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

“Only from the heart can you touch the sky.

”Cancer. Blood disorders. Affect us all greatly.

#iamgrateful and #iamthankful for the example set by those facing, fighting daily. You are the best of us.

Sending love to so many.

Too many.

We all know Rumi. We’ve all seen his quotes. Last night I found myself reading about him. Learning about him. Privileged. Wealthy. Migrant. Refugee. Preacher. Writer. Student.

What resonated with me most was how he instructed his followers to treat his death like a joyous wedding night. Life should be celebrated always. Especially, I feel, when it is gone.

Thank you for pointing me to Rumi, yesterday, LO.
