"The Guest House" by #Rumi 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. [Image by Stefano Corso, via Flickr]

heyrachelb : Absolutely loved this. @laurencullen_rn thought you might too, today. Sending love in your process right now.
julezz4 : Beautiful 🙏🏼❤️
yogabycoco : Thank you ❤️ @christianne_gr
laurenoujiri : is it possible to say i love one rumi poem more than another? i don't think so, but this comes close. as a coach, i invite it all in for myself in order to be a better coach and serve my clients by living it to give it. being grateful for all of life is the bedrock.

"The human soul doesn’t want to be advised or fixed or saved. It simply wants to be witnessed — to be seen, heard and companioned exactly as it is. When we make that kind of deep bow to the soul of a suffering person, our respect reinforces the soul’s healing resources, the only resources that can help the sufferer make it through." —Parker Palmer You can read this piece in its entirety at [Image by Sal, via Flickr]
marinyb : Beautiful and profound words. I look forward to Parker Palmer's blog post every week. Thank you!
mivoyage : i am in pain now...Parker soothes my soul

"If we are going to evolve spiritually, morally, as human beings, we’re going to lean in to caring more, and loving more for one another, and honoring our connectedness, and our oneness, and resist that impulse, that fear-driven impulse to divide and label and react with punitiveness rather than care and concern." The civil rights lawyer Michelle Alexander is one of the people who is waking us up to history we don't remember — and structures most of us can't fathom intending to create. She calls the punitive culture that has emerged The New Jim Crow, and is making it visible in the name of a fierce hope and belief in our collective capacity to engender the transformation to which this moment is calling.

stargazer1105 : Excellent eye opening book. How we as white skinned people get past our history, past the now to the future is the challenge of our lifetimes.

"These days I suspect that, in everything, how we inhabit our senses tests the mettle of our souls. It almost sounds like something my grandfather would have said. But I’m factoring in a love of our bodies he could not imagine, a frankness about them, a fidelity to them. We can trust the wisdom our bodies offer, again and again, and in the most ordinary circumstances. Convenience is an illusion, merely shifting the burden of process and consequences. Labor is real. But so is pleasure real and enduring. In old/new ways, we can factor in pleasure with a heightened awareness. We can insist on delight as a virtue." Another *delightful* piece by @brandeye8. #delight #KristaTippett #BecomingWise

"Forgiveness can transpire in moments, but it's also the work of a lifetime... We have to create conditions in which forgiveness is reasonable." So wonderful to be in DC tonight for #KristaTippett's #BecomingWise tour.

freshairfiend9 : An amazing night. Loved Krista's point at the end about hope being the difficult choice, that it is a muscle we must work on. Thank you #KristaTippett
joannalkane : @geddesjones
thehealthhuddle : Thanks for sharing @freshairfiend9 I wish all of Krista's book tour stops were recorded! She certainly has oodles of wisdom to share!

"I’m of the mind that, if some mysterious force can hear what’s in our hearts, it can do so whether we’re kneeling at St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City or pumping unleaded gas at a convenience store in Duluth. But historically it’s been churches, synagogues, temples, and mosques where we meet others making their own vulnerable attempts at faith — and let them witness ours. As society becomes decreasingly religious but no less concerned with the big questions of existence, where will we find those shared spaces of reverence?" We're thrilled to welcome Sarah Smarsh as our newest columnist on the #OnBeing blog. Her first post is up today! [Image by Chris Harris, via Fine Art America]
