I stuck my head
out of the window
this morning
SPRING kissed  me––
bang in the face.

One  of  my  favorite  Rumi  poems,   very  approriate for me today. ~  kk

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.

Jalrudin Rumi

To all my followers…  I  am sorry I  have  been  away  and amiss.   Today I was so  inspired   by this and   had to post.    Tx  for reading.

Inspiration  of  the day…  from  http://www.brainpickings.org/2015/09/03/grace-paley-aging/

“The main thing is this — when you get up in the morning you must take your heart in your two hands. You must do this every morning.”  and  then,   continuing…”

Metaphor? No, no, you can do this. In the morning, do a few little exercises for the joints, not too much. Then put your hands like a cup over and under the heart. Under the breast. He said tactfully. It’s probably easier for a man. Then talk softly, don’t yell. Under your ribs, push a little. When you wake up, you must do this massage. I mean pat, stroke a little, don’t be ashamed. Very likely no one will be watching. Then you must talk to your heart.

Talk? What?

Say anything, but be respectful. Say — maybe say, Heart, little heart, beat softly but never forget your job, the blood. You can whisper also, Remember, remember.”
