Day 228: Self-Healing

And today, the powerful words of Rumi, whose poems can truly transcend the ego and make their way straight to the soul.

Silkworms - Rumi
The hurt you embrace becomes joy.
Call it to your arms where it can

change. A silkworm eating leaves
makes a cocoon. Each of us weaves
a chamber of leaves and sticks.
Silkworms begin to truly exist

as they disappear inside that room.
Without legs, we fly.....When I stop

speaking, this poem will close,
and open its silent wings . . .
