From hole-ness to wholeness

Where are you broken? Where does it hurt? What area of your life just doesn't seem to get better? Where is it that you feel there is a hole in you? Breathe into that space and read on.

That part of you that hurts is calling for your attention. This is where life's direction and teachings await for your reflection and action. Until you tend to the causes of the wound, the hole will remain.

We have a tendency to either condemn or ignore the issues that plague us, the same ones that keep repeating themselves in our lives or that show up for us when we least expect them. Either we deal with them or they deal with us. Those unapplied lessons beg at first, but then, if unattended, are not so subtle. They come back as financial difficulties, eating disorders, dysfunctional relationships, missed opportunities, self-sabotage, stagnation, constant struggling, illness and other matters.

Sense where it hurts, recognize the hole, feel the pain. Tend to the wound so that it heals. Tending to the wound starts with airing it. Rumi is quoted as saying "The wound is the place where Light enters you." Exactly.

The wound ultimately strengthens us for, once we bring it to the Light, it is transformed into wisdom, courage, temperance, fortitude and healing. Once we bring our emotional injuries and our recurring dilemmas to the Light, we become beacons of it.

Today is a good day to see your brokenness and bring it to Spirit. Let the Light enter the hole and heal it, making you whole.
