05 Jun This being human is a guest house… and totally freaked out.
This being human is a guest house.Every morning a new arrivalA joy, a depression, a meanness,some momentary awareness comesas an unexpected visitor.Welcome and entertain them allEven if they’re a crowd of sorrows,who violently sweep your houseempty of its furnitureStill treat each guest honorable,He may be clearing you outfor some new delight.The dark thought, the shame, the malice,meet them at the door laughing,and invite them in.Be grateful for whoever comes,because each has been sentas a guide from beyond.– Rumi
The world is not safe, you will be misunderstood, there are people who don’t like you or get you (gasp!), all these people will gather together and bring their evidence. It’s happening right now. People are talking about you. They think you are self-centered or unfair or a snob. (Oh my god, not me…) They will think blah blah blah and more blah.
