I really like this Rumi poem. It speaks so well to dealing with life on life's terms and rather than running from what life brings us, facing it square on, looking it in the eye without fear or malice. only then can we determine the best course of action. 

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.

 ~ Rumi ~

There is no perfect life, we get to experience all the good and bad situations, and we shouldn't let these instances break us. In this poem we are described as the guest house, and every day we may feel joy, sadness, or anything that is unexpected. The poem tells us to deal with and learn how to cope with every encounter. These challenges are lessons that will help us with our future encounters. And with these challenges we become better and stronger individuals as time pass by.

To live to the fullest way to boost your ability to encounter what life brings to the table around you. It means benefiting as much as possible from what you have and never setting for not exactly the existence you are equipped for living. It means being really alive and wakeful to life.

It is suggested that an expert bookkeeper in open practice intermittently review acceptance decisions for repeating customer commitment. Changes in the conditions of either the customer or the review firm may imply that an engagement ceases to be ethically.

Rumi's encouragement originated from realizing that the distress of partition betokens a more profound, increasingly major, ineradicable solidarity. We must be antagonized from that to which we truly have a place. In the condition of antagonism, the Beloved lives in us as the consuming energy for get-together.

A very nice poem. Although every person may interpret poems in different ways, the main message is understood, I guess.

What is inspiration? You know, inspiration is an unconscious burst of creativity in a literary, musical, or other artistic endeavour. The concept has origins in both Hellenism and Hebraism. I hope, you will understand it.

I find this Rumi poem to speak my guts. I am not the one who knows how to deal with life on life's terms and rather than running from what life brings me.

We work with local businesses located in the UAE to source the best products and services across all of our concepts. The relaxed venue is a great spot to stop in for a cuppa, or a haircut, or pricey pair of collectable shoes, but it’s the coffee that keeps us going back.
