“You have to keep breaking your heart until it opens” ~Rumi
We all have had many heart breaks in life. We have faced it many times, but every time it shakes us to the core. We always wonder – “why me?”. Be it friends who betray at the worst times, friends whom you thought are the best partners but suddenly disappear from your life without a reason nor a trace, be it the person you thought you were madly in love with, who end up being such an alien whom you wondered “is this for real?”, or be it family – the people whom you can always trust as a place to go back to but suddenly turning against you. All of this breaks us up. We have to patiently stitch our lives together after such things. We have to carefully do it, even though we break down again and again during that process. Sometimes, we end up doing these things on us knowingly. We end up breaking relationships which hurts us so bad, we break down again. We feel that we are doing the right thing by doing these. Almost all of these times, we forget that whenever we break down we rise up wiser and stronger.
The more and more we break down, the soul becomes clearer and clearer.
The trick is to remember every break down. We want to forget our bad moments that we hold so much hatred towards. We must not attach hatred to the tough times, rather see it as opening us. We have to be thankful for each of these heart breaks. Only with them, we will find the real us. It is hard, as it concerns the heart. I see this as the more and more we break down, the soul becomes clearer and clearer. You are able to see yourself, act upon, concentrate on your strength, become wiser only when you go deeper and see your soul. That happens only in the moments where you break yourself apart. The heartaches caused by people really makes you go deeper and deeper inside yourself. The more tears we shed, the more it clears the cloud of illusionary relationships. The more we discover that we are much more purer than what we think we are. The minute we open our hearts, an amazing world of grace, love, peace and compassion awaits.
Go ahead, feel the inner you, drop the layers of hatred, drop the memories of the past, you will arise fresh and stronger. clearer and focussed. determined and driven. Full of peace and emanate love. That is the real you.
