The Guest House Poem 

  - 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're 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 though, the shame, the malice, 
Meet them at the door laughing, 
And invite them in. 

 Be grateful for whoever comes, 
Because each has been sent 
As a guide from beyond.
