Does your wound let the light in?
“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.”
I watched the beginning of ‘A Wrinkle In Time’ recently, and as bad as it was, I was transfixed for a while. I teared up when a character quoted Rumi, and knew that’s all I needed to see in this movie.
I’ve been moved to tears by this quote over the years many times. My breath shakes. I feel something open.
“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.”
Can you feel something deeper, more open?
Does your breath change?
Along with the release, the relaxation, and the breath, can you notice the grief, shame, or sadness?
You can spend minutes and hours here and do a lot of great work for yourself.
But there’s more.
There’s more because your wound letting in light isn’t the end of the story.
We need to look at something simple and powerful hiding in the words.
What has filled your wound with sadness, shame or grief is the blindspot of narrative that something is wrong.
That’s why I can hear this line and tear up more, again and again.
That’s why the more you play with this line and let the light in, you’ll finally get to an experience that something is missing.
What’s hiding in the words of Rumi’s wisdom is extremely subtle. It’s the final 1% that completes the promise of this heart-stopping quote.
Let’s find that 1%, shall we?
Notice the wound. Notice the light. Notice the opening, and change.
Now, hiding there, what still feels wrong?
Is it you? Is it existence? Something else?
There has been pain in your life, and now, you’re clearly capable of facing it and being fueled by it.
You’re strong enough and light enough to go all the way.
So here we go.
What if the wound and all the speakable reasons for the wound weren’t wrong? What if you and existence weren’t wrong either?
What if it *wasn’t* a wound?
You get the final 1% shift when you notice that the act of relating to your experience as wound keeps you trapped.
Feeling any lighter?
You get the final 1% shift when you stop abusing yourself by calling *it* your wound.
It’s by relating to your experience as wound that has kept the tears flowing and the subtle trap going because you stay stuck in the process and never get to the end.
Because look at it this way — what IS a wound? Sometimes it’s a shitty result of some mistake you made like when I jumped excitedly off a ramp on my scooter and face planted my teeth through my lip, lost all my cool friends and got my mind messed with by the doctor when I got my stitches out.
Or the time I wrote fantasy porn and got into massive trouble in 5th grade.
But most times, and I’m willing to bet more times than not, a wound is something that happened to you that you never asked for.
Like my dad telling me not to laugh like a girl.
Like my mom telling me to look away from scary movie moments.
Little things can scar little kids. And many people are scarred by much bigger things.
Yet, the insidiousness of a wound is that it hides the choice you’re making to keep making yourself a victim now by relating to ‘your’ wound as something that *happened to you.*
Stay in the trap of those words, and keep trapping your power.
The lasting lie of that wound is that it keeps you out of total self awareness and control with limited power, feeling frustrated, having no ultimate say, and you don’t matter. So of course you’re not worthy, not deserving, not lovable, not ever. How can it be any other way?
But there’s power in seeing through the joke, and seeing the choice you’re making, believing you have a wound. Do you want to keep believing that belief and narrating yourself into powerlessness?
Deep down, I know you’re not a victim.
Deep down, you know you’re not a victim.
You know that because you’re stardust with consciousness. You’re a miracle of molecules, dancing the delight of digesting chocolate and wine and french toast in a tiny blue planet spinning through the cosmos.
But ‘your wound’ makes you a victim and your victimness maintains the wound.
We can’t feel at home in the world as long as there is a wound.
Starting to see the trap?
So what if relating to any of your experience as a wound was how you’re turning your experience, and your life, into a problem?
And what if it wasn’t?
See here — what if what you have called your wound never was?
What if you could just look at your present experience hidden behind ‘your wound’ and breathe in the power and purpose there?
What if what you’ve been calling your wound was actually the world you know is possible, right here, right now?
And who would you be if you stopped relating to it as a wound, and you as a victim, and the world as a problem?
