Every wound has a scar. Every scar has a story. And the moral of that story is “Yes, still I’m living.” It doesn’t matter how many wounds you have. But, which matters is whether you have found the story of it or not. The story is nothing but the wisdom. The wisdom is knowing yourself. The wound is like the window through which you can see yourself. Rumi said, “The wound is where the light enters you.” Light comes through the hole, where you got hurt, to light up the darkest part of you. So, use that hole for introspection and recognize your strengths and weaknesses.
People have a tendency to escape from the pain. Hence, they avoid touching the wound as it creates pain. But, the harsh truth is you cannot get happiness if you escape from pain. It’s because if you don’t heal your hurt, it will grow day by day and finally, it will ruin you. If you let your disease untreated, it spreads all over the body. In the same way, the unhealed wound will spread its pain all over the mind and you cannot enjoy the happiness of life.
Introspection through the wound:
- Introspection is the vital part of healing. You need to come out from the outside noise and make sometimes exclusively for yourself.
- You need to gain some courage to research on the past history of your injury. It is painful though you have to face that. Escaping from the pain is not the way of happiness.
- As much as you analyze your pain and how did you get hurt by it, you will know yourself better than earlier. You can recognize your weakness and mistakes. Learning from the mistake will mature you to move forward. When you commence moving ahead, the past will not trouble you again. Letting go will be easy for you, then. In this way, wound open the window for wisdom and heal the pain for forever.
