09 Dec The Guest House
“And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.”
BLESS BY BLESS IS BUILT ON UNITY NOT DIVISION, LOVE NOT HATE. IN THE WORDS OF RUMI, WE WELCOME YOU TO OUR NEW 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’re 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 whoever comes, because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
IIB Designer, Bless Maz
