Track Name: Guest House with sheet music
Based on the poem "Guest House" by Rumi, a 13th Century Persian Muslim poet, jurist, and theologian. The Mevlevi Sufi order was founded by his followers after his death.
lyrics
This being human is a guest house.
Every day a new situation comes a-knock, knock, knockin' at your door.
This being human is a guest house.
Welcome it all. Meet 'em laughin', these gifts to bring you home.

Open the door and let it all in,
A crowd of sorrows or a couple of grins.
Open the door and let it all flow.
Another opportunity for you to grow.

This being human is a guest house.
Every day a new situation comes a-knock, knock, knockin' at your door.
This being human is a guest house.
Welcome it all. Meet 'em laughin', these gifts to bring you home.

Open your mind and let it all in,
The universe is bigger than the skin you're in.
Open your mind and let it all flow.
There's more going on than you can ever know.

This being human is a guest house.
Every day a new situation comes a-knock, knock, knockin' at your door.
This being human is a guest house.
Welcome it all. Meet 'em laughin', these gifts to bring you home.

Open your arms and let it all in,
The way you choose today is not the way you've been.
Open your arms and let it all flow.
Life is giving you a new row to hoe.

This being human is a guest house.
Every day a new situation comes a-knock, knock, knockin' at your door.
This being human is a guest house.
Welcome it all. Meet 'em laughin', these gifts to bring you home.

Open your heart and let it all in,
Your family is everyone and everything.
Open your heart and let it all flow.
Celebrate the harvest of the seeds you sow.

This being human is a guest house.
Every day a new situation comes a-knock, knock, knockin' at your door.
This being human is a guest house.
Welcome it all. Meet 'em laughin', these gifts to bring you home.
Welcome it all. Meet 'em laughin', these gifts to bring you home.
Welcome it all. Welcome it all. Welcome it all.
