Being Human

Being Human is a guesthouse 
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 it's 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 greatful for who ever comes,
Because each has been sent
As a guide from beyond. 
 
Rumi 1207 - 1273
