“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom”. ~ Viktor Frankl

“Ethical Pathways” offers consulting, coaching, facilitation and support services to individuals, households, small businesses, organizations and communities.

The aim is to help you to visualize your life and livelihood, your business or your organization’s projects as ethical statements that align with your values and have wider environmental and social impact.

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.

— Jellaludin Rumi,
translation by Coleman Barks
