Our Thoughts and Feelings

I found a new spell. One recommended by Rumi. In the poem 'The City Of Saba', he writes,

But there is a cure,
An individual medicine,
not a social remedy:

sit quietly,
and listen for a voice within
that will say,
'Be more silent'.

As that happens,
your soul starts to revive.

So I took his advice and sat in silence with my ache. We are friends now. I am not trying to cast him out and he no longer has a sinister smile.

I wonder if you can teach 'grief management' to people when they're young. So when their heart is broken, they know how to deal with it. I could have used it.
