“The Guest House” by Jellaludin Rumi

Translation by Coleman Barks

In poetry and other forms of art, we find some of the most profound and robust commentary and understanding of the what it means to be human. This is a very famous poem, often cited in mindfulness meditation. If you’ve never encountered it, it’s absolutely worth reading.
