It's hard to give a really good hug
while remaining sheltered and confined
within your self-made shell.
Sure your shell seems to provide you
some false sense of security
but it limits your understanding,
your spiritual growth, and your ability to love.
Much better to open up and allow God to use you,
following His way for His glory.
Trust in the Lord through His Holy Spirit
for your growth "and" your security.
This will lead to increased wisdom, understanding,
discernment and His everlasting peace.
"Your pain is the breaking of the shell
that encloses your understanding."
- Kahlil Gibran
"The jewel of the soul is priceless,
and yet it is being squandered like this,
in exchange for a mere shell."
- Sri Guru Granth Sahib
Come out of your shell.
