“How did the rose
ever open its heart
and give to this world all its beauty?
It felt the encouragement of light against its being,
otherwise, we will remain too
by Hafiz (c. 1320-1389) ~ Persia
How do you open your heart? And share the beauty of your soul with the world. And then you feel exposed and might get scared of being hurt. Without a courage we might remain with our hearts hidden and not ever bloom out of fear.
