The Guest House

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 honourably.
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.

Thank you! It was a handout that was given to me on a fantastic mindfulness meditation course with London Meditation.
