Description: This painting is inspired by Rumi's poem - The Guest House.
The core message of this poem is one of mindfulness, to be with whatever life brings us. Whether it comes in the form of joy or great sorrow, Rumi encourages us to greet it without fear. His advice is to muster the strength to accept these thoughts without contempt and have the faith that this change will eventually help us become better versions of ourselves.
