How did the rose…

“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

 frightened ”

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.

Love and cherish who acts as the encouragement of light for you. Love those who make you reveal your heart.
