• “Wherever there is ruin, there is hope for a treasure…” Rumi

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'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.

Have you ever pondered what matters to you most in life or what do you want from life?

Are you feeling frustrated, discouraged, anxious, angry, depressed, lonely and uncertain about your future?

Are you constantly preoccupied by a problem that makes you really unhappy, perhaps something that you can't change?

Maybe a job, relationship, a child, your health, years that have passed, or a happy childhood that you really wanted but know you will never have.

Is life throwing you a curveball and you just don't know how to handle these unexpected curve balls?

Or you may simply feel not fulfilled and on ease with your life in general despite all apparent success in your life from outside.

Some uncertain unhealthy trend and obsession with happiness in our modern society stresses the idea that people ought to be happy no matter what circumstances they are in, that unhappiness is a sign of maladjustment, and weakness, this value system many times is responsible for the burden that we not only feel unhappy when facing life challenges but even ashamed and unhappy about being unhappy.

Wellbeing, healing and growth occur when we have a better and more profound understanding and knowledge of ourselves, our needs, our emotions, our fundamental human mind function, behaviour and eventually about how we respond to and interact with the world around us.

No matter what challenges you are experiencing you do not deserve to suffer in silence, help is there for you if you just ask for it.
