A word on pain ….Random Rumi #8

Every midwife knows that not until a mother’s womb softens from the pain of labor will a way unfold and the infant find that opening to be born.

Oh friend! There is a treasure in your heart, it is heavy with child.

Listen.

All the awakened ones, like trusted midwives, are saying, ‘Welcome this pain! It opens the dark passage of Grace’.”

– Rumi
