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

Keep your heart in wonder at the daily miracles of your life

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
