The beginnings of a day...., a life......


This being Human is guest house
 
Every morning a new arrival.


A Joy, a depression , a meanness

some momentary awareness comes

as an unexpected visitor.....


Welcome and attend them all !

Even if they're a crowd of sorrows

who violently sweep your house empty

of its furniture ,still treat each guest honorable.

He may be clearing you out for some new delights.


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.
