"There's a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in." Leonard Cohen
Leonard Cohen, singer, songwriter, musician and Canadian eh! He is a multi-talented, multi-faceted soul, whose talent has spanned over four decades with inspiring words of wisdom, melodious tunes and musical prowess. He is a poet, with a number of well-known songs to his credit, a truly fascinating man.
This quote, from his song, "Anthem," is very intense, like the man himself.
My perception of it is that all of us have had challenges in life and ended up a little the worse for wear. Perhaps we are damaged, cracked, or broken. Being in such a state, encourages us to search for some way to tap into our inner wisdom and allow the light in.
The light, of course, is spiritual, healing, cleansing, divine light. In order to be healed we only have to allow the light in. So fear not, no matter how broken you feel, no matter what has taken place in your life there is always the possibility of healing. There is always hope.
We need to remember to be kind to ourselves during any healing process. Take it easy, rest, meditate, whatever you need, to allow a complete recovery.. Do it for you.
"Blessed are the cracked, for they shall let in the light"
