Many people on this site seem to like Rumi. Here is a "visual and sound journey" of his poem The Guest House.
Quite lovely :)

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 you house

empty of it's furniture.

Still treat each guest honorably.

He may be clearing you

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 guest has been sent

as a guide from above.
