Quotes on mindfulness by Rumi

I  have  been  practicing  and learning mindfulness   for  some  time  now  and i  thought i  share   some   quote  from  Rumi I  the  the poem the   guest House  as  it  speak on letting all your  emotions  be  and  welcoming  them  all

“Let go of your mind and then be mindful.
Close your ears and listen!” ~ Rumi

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 are 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 whatever comes.
Because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

Rumi
