#FridayFeels: The garden of compassion

Amid the crisis in Marawi City and the declaration of martial law in Mindanao, we reflect on these words from Islamic poet Jalaluddin Rumi:

Grief can be the garden of compassion.
If you keep your heart open through everything,
your pain can become your greatest ally
in your life's search for love and wisdom.
