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.
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.
maharishi: you need to let yourself breath
she: you think I’m not breathing?
maharishi: no you’re not
she: so how am I alive?
maharishi: because your brain won’t let you kill yourself
Stay postured for a miracle. The miraculous is all about us. Everywhere we turn there are miracles happening. The key is to remain in a posture to experience and receive the miraculous. A posture of gratitude, wonder and belief. Belief in what you ask? If you want to experience the miraculous you have to believe in magic. ✨
Abracadabra is Hebrew for I create as I speak. perhaps ponder this:
What miracles am I creating with my words?
spoiler alert: if you already know for sure how it will go, the miraculous will not have much room to WOW you.
Be wowed! Peace.
