The Guest House

If you've ever read a poem by the 13th century poet Rumi, then you know what a delicious treat his words are, even today. One thing I love about Rumi is that his poems always challenge me to expand my mind and look a things in a new way. In therapy, I sometimes offer clients something called a "reframe," which is a new perspective on their problem. With that in mind, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite Rumi pomes, one that always helps me keep my emotions in perspective. Did he invent the reframe?! 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. Welco
