Today’s Quote


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’re a crowd of sorrows
who violently sweep the 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 whomever comes
because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.

~ Rumi ~

    • The new ones are sometimes hard to find, and some old ones are just too good to not post. I’m glad this one spoke to you as it did to me. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and comment.
