The Guest House

 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.
