The Guest House by Rumi

The Guest House
My favorite Rumi’s poem 🌟
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
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 thought, 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.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Happy Friday!

——-
A quién le damos la bienvenida hoy?
Las emociones van y vienen.
Las emociones son…
Bienvenidas todas.

Feliz Viernes!
