Tonight’s meeting was our annual Holiday Meeting with Appetizer and Dessert Potluck.

Ramona opened the meeting by introducing new members and guests, followed by the sharing of successes.

The opening video was a portion of Abraham’s “I Am Going To Feel Good Through This”.  The video was briefly discussed.

Tracy read Rumi’s “The Guest House” which is reproduced below as requested by so many.

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.

After the poem, we played our annual “Get to know one another better” game and enjoyed the great food.

Our next meeting will be Tuesday, January 10, 2017.  Happy Holidays to all.
