Rumi – The Guesthouse

Let’s discuss the significance of acknowledging and experiencing our emotions in their entirety. It’s crucial to give ourselves permission to feel every emotion that arises within us. One of my favorite poems by Rumi perfectly encapsulates this sentiment by emphasizing the importance of embracing our emotional experiences, whatever shape they may take.

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.


By allowing ourselves to genuinely experience each emotion, we practice self-acceptance and demonstrate bravery in navigating various feelings. With courage, open-heartedness, and a willingness to face any challenge, we can overcome anything thrown our way.

Emotions can offer valuable lessons and insights if we genuinely feel them and confront the challenges they present. When we grant ourselves the necessary love and support, we cleanse ourselves emotionally, achieving catharsis in the process.

This emotional release allows us to attain newfound clarity, insights, and even moments of joy. Therefore, it is imperative to welcome each emotion with open arms, embracing every aspect of ourselves in the process.

Remember that there is no need to cling onto emotions. Let them come as they may but also allow them to wash right through you. By doing so, we create space for personal growth and a better understanding of our true selves.
