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.

“The biggest challenge this month will be to keep away from the distractions that want to derail us from truly being as powerful as we can. The distractions are our addictions, fears, bad behaviors, energy leaks and self-doubt.
“Giving into the distractions causes procrastination, lethargy, avoidance, and acting out badly through negative aggressive behavior or withdrawing into the despair of giving up.
“The distractions of the false personality are like adding water to high-octane fuel. The engine of your desires will not fire or power up. It will instead sputter and die before it ever gets going.
“So how do you keep your fuel clean and your engine ready? By committing to your practices, asking spirit and your allies for help, allowing what needs to be healed and balanced to be healed and balanced, and trusting that life will unfold with power if you just get out of your own way.”

I don't know about you guys, but recently I've been getting hit hard with fear and self destruction. I thought I was finally letting go of the things holding me back and then bam, out of nowhere I found myself repeating old patterns, holding on to negative beliefs, letting addictions to other people derail my self worth.....and worst of all....not treating myself with love or respect.
The problem we all face when the universe smacks us with these old behaviors is slipping into the "but I was doing so well" and the "why me?" thoughts. It isn't until we can see that we often have to go through the bottom of the barrel moments to let go of everything that is no longer serving us....what a gift. To be able to heal and balance yourself from the suffering and pain you have been living with is a miracle unto itself.
So let's be grateful for the destruction.....because that is where we gain our strength and power... if there is one thing you take from today remember that YOU are Worthy of Love and living the Life of YOUR Dreams.
Infinite Love and Gratitude
