The inn

You know the poem 'tavern'?
Mindfulness trainings we use this poem regularly as a metaphor for learning allowing all kinds of feelings, less pleasant. I myself did not immediately something about this poem, but after I saw him regularly over, given the content more and more significance for me. In a difficult period when a lot of negative feelings had helped me to think of the inn; hot they welcome.

The inn

Humanity is an inn;
every day new guests.

Joy, disappointment, a moment of clarity;
come as unexpected visitors.

Welcome them and receive them all welcoming !
Even though it worries a lot
That mess up your house.

still treat every guest with respect.
Perhaps he cleans up at you
so as to make way for something else, something nice.

The gloomy thought, shame, anger,
Join them laughing met at the door
and ask them to move forward.

Be open to anyone who comes.
Because each of them has been sent
As a guide from the unknown.
