Exposing Wounds

We all carry soul wounds. Wounds that will steer the course of our lives in our effort to ease the pain they cause. For the most of us these wounds are invisible. We need the help of others to see them. We need the help of Another to heal them. Usually we form a false self around the wounds of our soul. We create a false self in order to hide our wounds, in order to hide ourselves. 

I've come to know some of the wounds of my soul through the gaze and words of other pilgrims. There is grace in exposing wounds to a loving gaze. It is a step in the journey of healing. Choose your recipients wisely, not everybody can handle the wounds of others. Choose your recipients wisely, don't let fear guide your choice. Choose, share, and wait for the light to pour in.
