The Guest House, by Rumi
This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival....
A joy, a depression, a meanness,

The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.
Be grateful for whatever comes.
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
- Jelaluddin Rumi

So what to do? We don’t want to deaden our capacity to feel, but if we feel too much, we get run over by an often heartless world. I have found my best answer in three places...
Selective Attachment: carefully discerning between positive and negative individuals and environments, and only attaching to those people and places that can hold our tender heart safe;
Strong Energetic Boundaries: being physically and emotionally charged, so that we can more…Continue
