My lovely family,

I haven’t been posting a while, because I was seized by a doubt, that should I actually be posting the words of great masters, when all this is freely available? Is it the right thing to do? I am not still sure. But reading these beautiful words, I couldn’t stop myself from sharing them. Bringing to you these beautiful words by Khalil Gibran, about Pain. When our heart is in deep turmoil, it cries out, oh, why this pain? But pain has a purpose, a life changing one! Hope these words help you ease the pain you feel….

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.

     Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain.

     And could you keep your heart in wonder at the daily miracles of your life your pain would not seem less wondrous than your joy;

     And you would accept the seasons of your heart, even as you have always accepted the seasons that pass over your fields.

     And you would watch with serenity through the winters of your grief.

     Much of your pain is self-chosen.

     It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self.

     Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility:

     For his hand, though heavy and hard, is guided by the tender hand of the Unseen,

     And the cup he brings, though it burn your lips, has been fashioned of the clay which the Potter has moistened with His own sacred tears.
