Prayer and Good Deeds
Many spiritual awakenings start after the pain of physical or emotional setbacks. As Rumi said, “The wound is the place where the light enters you.” After recovery, we feel better and are more thankful. We might also try to heal other areas still in pain. This process can take weeks, months, or years, depending on the person. We might pull ourselves together and accept whatever has happened and work on self-realization, which can lead us to becoming kinder and more generous as well as stronger and more powerful — ready for anything.
