Thoughts on a Thursday with Rumi

“What is the Heart? 

A flower opening” 





Do you think the flower was afraid, to open?  I mean, sure, there’s the warm, radiant sunlight to bask in, the lovely breeze to caress its petals, but there’s also rain, hail, and even snow that can hurt, destroy and devastate – and we all know that you can’t trust the weather…

To open your heart is to be vulnerable, and who can we trust?  Who will nourish it and cherish it, who will appreciate and celebrate its deep mysteries and beauty?

I don’t know and I feel afraid.  But like the flower, it is in my nature to open…




May the warm sunlight and a lovely breeze find you wherever you are today…

  4. Beautifully said and so true Jewells! The petals are most vulnerable to injury when the flower is open, but they remain safe when closed into a ball. Vulnerability is such an important facet of a trusting faithful relationship, and sadly they are becoming more difficult to find these days. If we find one we are truly blessed with gold. Have a wonderful weekend my friend!
