The Guest House, 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 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.

p.d. encontré que este poema se asemeja mucho a mi vida, tal vez a la nuestra también. especialmente estas últimas palabras que agradecen todo lo que llega a nuestras vidas, aunque sea silencio y vacío, -is a guide from beyond- Gracias!
