"There is a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in."
- Leonard Cohen
These pictures I took lately in a traditional clay house in Bangladesh.
I was so mesmerized by the amazing light pattern, which actually came from the outside. The sun entered the house through the bamboo wall construction.
And that's where I actually understood how beautiful these holes in the bamboo construction were. And of course you can think; what if it rains, maybe the water will come through, what if animals come inside, maybe they are harming me etcetera...
It is exactly the same with our cracks; look at it in a 'negative' way and you will experience it as a burden and are always thinking 'what if' it wasn't like this. Maybe the situation would be different.
With love and acceptance acknowledging your cracks, whatever that may be for you, makes you one day enjoy the light and beauty of it. Who knows you will be mesmerized by it... Are you?
