Being human is a guest house !

This being human is a guest house. Every morning is a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor…Welcome and entertain them all. Treat each guest honorably. 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.

  1. Hahahaha that means alot Rekha. Yes indeed I love fun and happiness and on a personal level I also like to make others happy as well.

    I couldn’t agree more about the temple — you never know who is going to visit and if you’re not good on the inside it’s going to manifest on the outside, so working on your temple is very important lol

    The saying that you quoted is very true; even when something is bad, you can still learn a lesson from it to make you wiser πŸ’―πŸ‘πŸ‘

    1. You are a nice person from heart. That’s why you want to make others happy. It’s great. 😊 you are already working on your temple.
      I personally believe we learn more from bad and sad lessons ( if you fight back in a positive way)

      2. hahaha that’s because it went to the “achieve” folder inside of your messages since you haven’t added me yet.

        You should accept my friend request so that when I send you a message, the message would go into your main inbox lol

      3. If we can talk on facebook it would be so much better, that’s why i want to talk to you in facebook buddy, so if you can accept my request that will be good.

        And I can tell you more things about me. I also promised you that i would send you a picture or two of me someday aswell. I could do all of that through facebook

      4. Hi Killa,
        sometimes life is too tough and we want to vent Out the stress . In such a condition Generally we want to talk to someone who is not going to judge us or may be is an Unkown person . This is human psychology.
        That’s why I started chatting to you, when you written some comments on my post.
        I am not interested in talking about any specific thing ( any other thing- as you said).
        WP is the most convenient platform for me to talk/ chat. I asked about fb because I wanted to see the person, I am talking with. That’s all.
        Hope you’ll understand.

      2. hey, good day to you Rekha βœŒβœŒπŸ˜†

        Yes, around this time of year its often said to be Hurricane Season globally, but some parts of the earth tend to be impacted more often and consistently than others.

        Over here in my country, we tend to get impacted by Storms when they are mostly still weak, and thank god that Hurricane Dorian storm system was still a very weak Tropical Storm when it reached to us, and not a Hurricane 🀣🀣.

        It was very surprising to me how much stronger it had gotten by the time it reached the Bahamas and the U.S

  2. lol hi Rekha

    I received a notification today that you and others followed me, but your name was the first and it only mentions the name of the person that was the latest to follow you, first.

    But you had been following me for a while, so it is strange that it’s telling me that you followed me today, as if you are a new follower hahaha. Did an error or something happen on your page that made you have to re-follow me?

      1. lol yes that is a really odd situation Rekha, and I glad that you noticed it because not being linked to someone can affect your ability to interact with them and I was previously completely unaware of the issue, so it’s awesome that we are a duo again hahaa

      2. Yes it certainly does but it will take far more than these technical bugs to keep us separated haha.

        I’m doing wonderful my friend, thanks. I hope you are as well — it’s time to make the best of this new week πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜„

      3. Yes you are very correct Rekha, it’s never a really necessary to suppress your true feelings especially in the presence of people who like you, because those who really care about you, will want to know how you feel.

        If you never told me how you rally felt, i would not have truly understood the burden you’re carrying and i’m so sorry to hear about it Rekha. I had no idea your Husband passed, I was not even sure if you were ever Married. But despite my carelessness, it is never easy losing anyone shared your life.

      1. Yes it is but it is not stronger than you because you are able to carry one and such strength, courage, and Bravery, are the real things that baffles many of us, to think that it is still possible for a heart to bear that much and yet still live with such grace.

        He may be gone physically but his faith lives on in you, and he left you with two beautiful daughters my friend.

        You are very blessed and the only one that can hold you back is yourself, and you are doing the exact opposite πŸ‘πŸŒŸ. So stay safe and I hope Sunday for you is also sunny and sweet haha
