The Guest House ~ 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.

 

魯米。客棧

人的一生好比客棧,

每個早晨都有新來客。

喜樂、沮喪、卑劣、某個瞬間的體認,

像是意外的訪客翩然到來。

歡迎並熱情招待他們每一個!

即使來者是接踵的憂傷,

恣意破壞你的屋宇,

搬空所有家具,

仍然要待之以禮。

因為他可能帶來某些嶄新的歡悅

滌淨你的心靈。

無論是灰黯念頭、羞愧或惡念,

都要在門口笑臉相迎,

歡迎它們進入你的內心。

不管來者是誰都要心存感激,

因為每一個

都是上天賜給我們的嚮導。
