“The wound is the place where the light enters you” – Rumi
For most of us, there is much fear attached to illness. However, illness can be a starting point for transformation. When we think about it, illness can awaken in us the awareness that we are both fragile and strong at the same time. It is an opportunity to decide where we put ourselves on our own priority list. One step in the direction of loving ourselves shifts our path and opens a million possibilities. There are so many “expert” opinions and so much information available that the road map to healing can be confusing. Start small. Make one choice now. See what makes sense to you and then go with your heart. Be open but be smart. Make one choice and see where it takes you and how the world around you reflects that change. You might see a light that did not exist before.
