The Guest House by Rumi – A Poem for the Soul

“The Guest House” by Rumi was first introduced to me by my yoga teacher.

It is one of the most popular works of Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī, a 13th-century Persian poetfaqihIslamic scholartheologian, and Sufi mystic. 

I love this poem for how it reminds me of the truth about the human experience. Each day we encounter new parts of ourselves that are to teach us something about who we are and what our purpose is here on earth. It reminds me, that our time is temporary, and experiences are temporary. We must welcome them, move through them, live in them, and continue on.

I hope “The Guest House” by Rumi inspires you as much as it does me.
