  • The Guest House

    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.

    If you’ve been stuck in one place or one mentality for far too long, to the point that you have lost touch with how to be human, it might be time to start taking a journey inwards more than outwards. You can rewrite your story and become the best damn human being who has ever lived. ~Rumi #poems #lifewisdom #lifejourney

    Family letters
    interpreted by strangers
    What could go wrong? .. I am reading Chapter 3 of Marcus Borg's Evolution of the Word.
    This is the last chapter before jumping back into scripture. This makes the case for reading scripture according to the timeline in which it was written. The Gospels, at front, were written long after most of the letters attributed to Paul. The first 7 letters that we know are written by Paul were all written in the 50s and probably in this order: 1 Thessalonians, Galatians, 1 Corinthians, Philemon, Philippians, 2 Corinthians, Romans.
    Why don't our Bibles have them in this order? Because the people were weird. They put the letters in the order of size. Just like the prophets section in the Hebrew part of the Bible. Longest letters to shortest letters. That is weird in my book. :) Marcus Borg notes that the letters were written to existing communities (except for Romans) that Paul was in relationship with. They don't have a lot of biographical Jesus-y data because Paul had met them, talked to them, probably preached, etc. All that is settled vocabulary. So Paul is jumping in with encouragement, admonishment, etc. For the person unfamiliar with Jesus, this would be really confusing. And for those of us who are outside those early communities (i.e. all of us), it can also be a problem as we figure out what is specifically for that community and what is generalizable to everyone. Because, believe it or not, not every single thing in the Bible is generalizable to our contemporary social construct. If it were, we would be advocating for all kinds of horrible things like stoning, slavery, etc. It is important to know what to leave behind.
    Borg also notes that the early "churches" weren't what we consider a church. They were small communities that gathered probably in shops. They weren't even "house churches" because nobody then could afford a house as we think of it. They were basically tenements with two rooms for entire families and no sanitation. A very tough living situation.

    О нем

    Где проводишь без вести?
    Что тебе снится?
    Что любиться?
    Что на душе творится,
    Когда внутри тревожиться?
    Кто маниться?
    А с кем приходиться лобзаться?
    С кем заживаться?
    Сейчас же, остается наслаждаться.
    Окунаясь в счастье расслабляться,
    И вновь с собой приблизится.

    Все переменится и снова пустится.
    Забылся ли в забвении иль оживился?
    Ослабишься или ославишься?
    Все сбудется, когда забудется.

    А может спишемся иль отдалишься?
    Где твоя зерница?
    С чем приходиться мериться?
    Много ли на себя берёшь?
    Как будешь драться?
    Сколько уже пройдено?

    А я, никак не могу с тобой расстаться,
    Словно, ты мое мерило.
    Лишь на мгновении тебя забыла,
    И снова выдумала - образ выявила.
    О, если б ты приблизился,
    Тогда я б тебя поцеловала
    Дай Бог не свидеться,
    Не коснуться кожицей и не обняться,
    Не сплестись в земной прострации.
    Улыбка сплетница -
    Выдаёт характеристика,
    Когда в глазах моих ты отражаешься.
    Плохиш мальчишка нравиться,
    Ну только как с тобой управиться?

    Лишь бы, насмарку не пуститься.
    Не связываться, не растворяться,
    В лабиринте не запутаться,
    Отделиться, на расстоянии не откликаться.
    Только ты все возвращаешься.
    Видимо, никак нам не распрощаться..
