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 are 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 whatever comes.
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

– Jelaluddin Rumi,
Translation from The Essential Rumi by Coleman Bar

The Next Step You Take…by John Dewey

The next step you take is the one that matters. You have the power to choose right now what that step will be.

Even if you’ve been going for weeks or
for years in a negative direction, your next step can be a positive one. Even if it’s a small positive step, it can change your direction and establish a new momentum.

No matter where you are or what you’ve done or failed to do, you can now choose to move toward what you value most. The way to make that choice is with your next step.

You can wish and hope and plan and talk about where you want to go. Yet it is your next step that will actually begin to get you there.

Your next step sets the direction for your future. And you have the opportunity right now to decide what that next step will be.

Your next step is ready and waiting for you to take it. Choose to make it one that will move your whole world forward.

Arriving at one point is the starting point to another.

Invite not the future;
Do not alter your innate wakefulness;
