Wednesday Words of Wisdom: Transformation

6 Feb

“Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.”
― Rumi
These are very inspirational words. But, sometimes sorrow violently sweeps through your house leaving dust, dirt and emotional clutter in its wake. Often the yellow leaves remain withering on the branch, remaining there dry and shriveled grey until Spring. When the rotten roots are pulled up and exposed, only the proper amount of time for healing will allow new stronger growth. Such is life.

Transformation is a lengthy process. I’m hoping to sweep away the dirt, reveal brilliant green leaves, and regrow stalwart roots. If sorrow prepares you for joy, I’m ready. Bring it!
