The Guest House

There are a few quotes and poems that speak to me and I want to focus this year on all of them, enjoy reading them, re-reading and taking parts that speaks to me and taking the words and bringing them into action. It’s not about just enjoying something but making is so that it comes to life in my life. I want to enjoy the little things in life in 2018 and I feel like it begins with being present in everything I do. The first one is the Guest House, such a pretty poem by Rumi that speaks to allowing life to happen with us and not to us. We should allow everything including bad and good things to teach us things about ourselves. We are quick to push things away from our lives especially when we think it’s bad for us, however everything has something to teach us about our lives, our circumstances and overall functioning. We lose so much when we push things away and not embrace them and not ask “what is this experience trying to teach me?” The poem reminds us to be grateful for whoever comes (the good, the bad and the ugly) because each has been sent as a guide from beyond. Today I am open to what life has to bring, I am welcoming and entertaining them all. I am accepting the guests that arrive at my door because this being human is truly a guest house.
