I noticed I was getting emails from people who were going through a dark place, and thought I should share this information with anyone who’s feeling the new year/dark of winter/heartbreak or discouragement blues. This may surprise you and hearten you.
Please post comments, experiences, and insights below. And if you have a friend who’s in a dark place today, please send your friend here. Namaste.
“The Guest House” by Rumi, over 700 years ago…
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 are 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.
