Hello and thank you for stopping by!
I'm accepting new clients for Telehealth (Zoom and phone) sessions for California
and Nevada residents.
The Guest House by
Jalal-ad-Din Muhammad 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
