Quote (Poem) for the Day : The Guest House

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 been sent
as a guide from beyond.

— Rumi

Quote for the Day : Surrender

“…Very little grows on jagged rock.
Be ground. Be crumbled, so wildflowers will come up where you are.
You have been stony for too many years.
Try something different. Surrender…”

— Rumi
