Pain

Rating: 3.0
And a woman spoke, saying, 'Tell us of Pain.'

And he said:

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.

Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain.

And could you keep your heart in wonder at the daily miracles of your life, your pain would not seem less wondrous than your joy;
And you would accept the seasons of your heart, even as you have always accepted the seasons that pass over your fields.

Actually think this is a message for hope, the unseen, that which the potter is still creating. Pain is a metaphor here for sadness and self wrought. IMO.

Much of your pain is self-chosen. Nicely written poem, the Prophet is his unique and outstanding creation.
