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 are 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 whatever comes.
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
- Jelaluddin Rumi

Spring Awakening: Are you feeling the budding of your Spring Rebirth?
The potential right now to open steadily stronger into the world again as your authentic self, to more fully embody who you Truly are in feeling, action, essence, strength, softness, boldness and core spirit, is mighty. These are the movements and continued stirrings budding from the rest-and-deep-digest of a long deep potent and profitable winter season.
As the Feminine continues to rise and the seasons transition and open toward Spring, the depths may be asking you to maintain quality time alone for awhile - deliciously - in your practice and in new budding activity, in journalling quietly at home and in spending time out in nature, and in your form…Continue
