The Guest House by Rumi





This being human is a guest house

Every morning, a new arrival


A joy, a depression, a meanness

some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor


Welcome and entertain them all!

Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,

who violently sweep your house

empty of its furniture.

still treat each guest honorably.

He may be clearing you out for some new delight.


The dark thought, the shame, the malice,

meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.


Be grateful for whatever comes

because each has seen sent

as a guide from beyond.


By Jelaluddin Rumi.
