"Rumi's words hit deep:
'Be crumbled. So wild flowers will come up where you are. You have been stony for too many years. Try something different. Surrender.'
It's like he's talking straight to our souls.
Think about it – we're all a bit like that crumbled earth, and those wildflowers? They're the magic that can bloom when we let ourselves break open. But truth be told, we've been playing it stony for too long. Sticking to what we know, never veering off course.
Life becomes a never-ending solo journey, trying to conquer mountains with nothing but our own willpower. We become trapped in the walls of our own knowledge, unable to see beyond the familiar.
And let's admit it, this way of living can be downright exhausting and uninspiring. But Rumi whispers a different tune – the melody of surrender. Yeah, it's a tougher path, demanding a leap of faith and a hefty dose of bravery. But guess what? It's a path that leads to something extraordinary – growth that races ahead and a life that overflows with abundance.
Picture this not just on some grand cosmic scale, but in the little moments too. Surrender isn't waving a white flag of defeat; it's about embracing your beautiful imperfections. They're the stepping stones to growth.
Every one of us, molded by nature and circumstance, comes with chinks and gaps in our armor. Surrender? Well, that's about showing our true selves to those who matter most. It's accepting their wisdom and the grace they offer, all in the name of growth.
So, what's that one thing you've been grappling with? That quirky trait you wish you could tuck away? Or that skill you lack, which feels like a roadblock? Maybe, just maybe, it's time to let the stoniness go, the one you've carried for too many years.
I dive deeper into this in my fresh YouTube video where I dive into the step by step process of developing a lifestyle of vulnerability and growth.
