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 ~

Today’s Quote

Everything you see has its roots
in the unseen world.
The forms may change,
yet the essence remains the same.
Every wonderful sight will vanish,
every sweet word will fade,
but do not be disheartened,
the source they come from
is eternal, growing,
branching out,
giving new life and joy.
Why do you weep?
The source is within you
and this whole world
is springing up from it.

~ Rumi ~
