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 attend them all. Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows… still, treat each guest honourable. He may be clearing you out for some new delight.” (Rumi)

Don’t worry, be happy

The most astounding thing about children, I think, is how happy they are. How each morning, they open their eyes excited, unencumbered. Smiley, twinkly-eyed, giggly, present. Their joy is infectious. What can we learn from them? Clearly, so much.

“Judge nothing, you will be happy. Forgive everything, you will be happier. Love everything, you will be happiest.” ~Sri Chinmoy
