Beautiful!!! As Rumi said ““The wound is the place from where the light enters you”.

Things break, it is their nature
We then throw them away it is our nature
Labeling them as bad rejects
The unlucky get discarded, sad
Broken, they think themselves worthless.

If they knew of the old Japanese tradition of repairing broken pottery, they call it kintsugi.
Mending the break with lacquer mixed with powdered gold, some silver, and platinum
A stronger bond in the broken lines formed, now the jar still useful with enhanced beauty.
Creating a masterpiece of art, revealing beauty in the broken

Sometimes life breaks you, but you can rise stronger.
Pain and negativity help illuminate blessings and love.
Loss and despair replaced with new light and renewed energy.
Challenges, turning to opportunities, weakness becomes strength.
Beauty hides in the broken mended.

We often break in life, that does not mean our usefulness is over. The pain and hurt only shows us our strength…

    1. I agree with you Maria Teresa. We might all be walking wounded, growing each time with each experience, and that is how our light shines through, as you said “the more cracks the more light” 🙂 ❤

  2. Profound quote of Truth from Rumi and from the wound we come to know what healing is all about. Lovely post, Amira and we have to rise and shine even if we lose in life and just like the Japanese who can mend a cracked pot we too can mend our cracked body and Soul.
