Courage and the rose

Often in fear, we crumple up, we close in, we recede.

We pull the curtains over the windows that let in light, we sit quietly even we have a million ideas in our hearts, we walk away from a new road.

People of wisdom say, this happens when we don’t trust the Maker. When somewhere deep down, we think our worries, our mistakes will rule us.

Yet if we trust, then mistakes become lessons, and with courage our path keeps emerging and we keep walking on. Walking on  -in trust, in peace, that all is as per Plan, and all He does is good.  Courage is about surrender, trust and love. 

Hafiz writes:

“How
Did the rose
Ever open its heart

And give to this world
All its
Beauty?

It felt the encouragement of light
Against its
Being,

Otherwise,
We all remain
Too
Frightened.”

Are we trusting , today ?

    Are we not rewarded with love when we have the courage to trust, that with time once the rose bush is pruned, new vibrant roses will open their heart to the light?

    This rose garden is a favorite place to come to, especially when all is in full bloom:

    Yes, Uzma, I withdraw. I need the time and space to face my fear. I need the time and space for someone like you or Hafiz to find me and buoy my soul.

    Many thanks for sharing this wisdom.

      @souldipper. WOW. Thank you Amy. Indeed, we withdraw for only when we know darkness can we dance in light. And then the wise ones find us. I am only taking first baby steps on this path if wisdom and life is teaching me much. Thank you for being there and sharing your compassionate words and spirit here so much. God bless
