I Follow My Joy And My Heartbreak Simultaneously ... Rumi's The Guest House
By sczimme on September 24, 2012
I really enjoy this Rumi poem. It reminds me of the Steve Pavlina quote, "I follow my joy and my heartbreak simultaneously because they're two sides of the same coin." I think it's important to understand and recognize the significance of "welcoming" every emotion we feel, experience the entire realm of feelings. For like the poem intimates, from sadness can come the new light of happiness, from failure new opportunity.
