Why does the rose bloom?

Did the rose
Ever open its heart
And give to this world
All its
It felt the encouragement of light
Against its Being.
We all remain

― Hafez

My first soul-friend/lover whom I recognised at first sight, she shared this poem with me and said “Feel it!”

I said – “Yes, it is beautiful”

She refused to accept my words – she said – “No! Don’t read it, Feeeeeel it”

I urge you to do the same. Become a rose bud for a moment. And feel what will make you want to open up?

Once you complete the exercise, then read below.

I am sitting inside the rose bud, it is safe, it is quiet, it is known. But there is an inner voice that keeps saying, open up, you will see great light! I don’t trust it, because i have never seen light before. I believe what I have already seen.

I can’t know what is outside so it scares me but the inner voice is persistent. It keeps ringing day and night, it doesn’t trouble me, it is like a slight encouragement day by day. I feel uplifting feeling when the voice comes. It is making me believe in some fantasy of an outside world. It shows me glimpses of it in visions. But I am inside the bud, I don’t trust it for several moments. But I also become sadder and sadder day by day because I am not listening to the inner voice. Then one day the voice comes and I am done with my sadness. I don’t want to be sad anymore. How bad could it be outside? It must not be as bad as it getting inside! I must open up and see!

I listen to it finally! And when I open up, I realise there was nothing to be scared of!

The encouragement by light must be heeded, for the ‘joy of the soul’ remains on the other side of trust. Cross the bridge of trust.
