Understand Reality

Understand Reality
"If you use your mind to try to understand reality,
You will understand neither your mind nor your reality.

If you try and understand reality without using your mind,
You will understand both your mind and reality.

The Guest House by Rumi

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 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 whoever comes,
Because each has been sent
As a guide from beyond.
The Essential Rumi

Don't Get Caught Up In The Storms of Life

The Storms of Life
Don't get caught up in the storms of life. Don't deny they are happening, either.
Move through them with ease and grace.
Look for the messages.

These messages can be quite revealing,
They can sometimes be in your face
asking you to see a new way
or, take responsibility for what has happened.

The storms are the greatest learning.
They are not intended to be jumped over.
And, they are not intended to dwell in.

When things are going great,
it's easy to be joyful, generous, and loving.
Be joyful, generous, and loving even when life looks like a mess.
Be open to the mysteries,
then move through it with much breath.
