I saw a client this week to whom I had introduced the Guest House by Rumi right at the beginning of our journey together. It took him a few weeks to soak in the words of this masterpiece. He translated it for me very kindly in Hungarian which I post below. Much gratitude dear one! This post is dedicated to you.
He reported that he has stopped participating with thoughts/emotions and is living as a silent observer. His life quality seems visibly enhanced, he experiences a level of joy that is very new to him.
I walked away from this conversation grateful to be a powerful agent of transformation within my clients.
What will your practice be? Are you willing to bring rigor and take full responsibility for your well being?
THE GUEST HOUSE- RUMI
A VENDÉGHÁZ – RUMI
This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival.
Az emberi lét, olyan mint egy vendégház. Minden reggel új betérővel.
A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor.
Váratlan vendégként érkezik egy öröm, egy bánat, egy aljasság vagy némi pillanatnyi tudatosság.
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.
Köszöntsd és szórakoztasd mind! Még ha egy csapatnyi bú is az, akik erőszakkal ürítik ki házad, magukkal víve minden bútorod.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice. meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.
A sötét gondolat, a szégyen, a rosszindulat. Köszöntsd őket az ajtóban nevetve és hívd be őket.
Be grateful for whatever comes. Because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.
Légy hálás, bármi is érkezik. Mert mind útmutatóként van küldve a túloldalról.
