Wholehearted Recovery

This Being Human 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 honourably,
          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.

                      from the Persian poet Rumi
