All the Feels

In celebration of National “Feel the Love” Day, we’re reminded of what is, arguably, the most instructive poem ever written on being a loving, feeling human:

 The Guest 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.

- Jalaluddin Rumi, translation by Coleman Barks

 

Some say this is a poem for the broken hearted, but you don't need a broken heart to allow all the feels move through you. Doing so builds empathy and compassion for our shared human experience — and that is pure gold.
