Based on a prayer by Father Thomas Keating in which we welcome what comes to us. Rumi said "this being human is like a guest house." Let's see what God brings.

And by the way, this isn't primarily about welcoming others, though there's that too.

Letting Go of Control and Welcoming Sorrow

Letting Go of Worth and Welcoming Love

Letting Go of Shame and Welcoming Malice

Letting Go of Productivity and Welcoming Fallowing

Letting Go of Understanding and Welcoming What Is

Letting Go of Plans and Welcoming Joy
