Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars. - Khalil Gibran
So this is where all the vapid talk about the 'soul' of the universe is actually headed. Once the hard-won principles of reason and science have been discredited, the world will not pass into the hands of credulous herbivores who keep crystals by their sides and swoon over the poems of Khalil Gibran. The 'vacuum' will be invaded instead by determined fundamentalists of every stripe who already know the truth by means of revelation and who actually seek real and serious power in the here and now. One thinks of the painstaking, cloud-dispelling labor of British scientists from Isaac Newton to Joseph Priestley to Charles Darwin to Ernest Rutherford to Alan Turing and Francis Crick, much of it built upon the shoulders of Galileo and Copernicus, only to see it casually slandered by a moral and intellectual weakling from the usurping House of Hanover. An awful embarrassment awaits the British if they do not declare for a republic based on verifiable laws and principles, both political and scientific.
The strong grows in solitude where the weak withers away. ~ Khalil Gibran
We all stumble along on the crutches of cliche.Yet we wait and hope for insight to freshen us and bring healing.Zen koans and Christian parables are there as pegs in the mountain to help us to grab a strawberry of the moment as we fall or help us to consider the lily of humility a little dandelion seed floating past like a butterfly.So hard to put the title on the book .Too limiting and so difficult to take up a position on stage or altar let alone pulpit.Dylan put it 'I'd forever talk to you but soon my words would turn into meaningless rhyme' and added somewhere else 'I become my enemy in the moment that I preach.' Jesus in seeking to burst through complacency with the tender eloquence of Khalil Gibran sought to challenge the cliche of religion .i.e 'pride'.if there is one thing that makes the loveliness of GRACE and the 'gift' of giving' forgiving' love: AGAPE it is pride Why does Gandhi not choose to belong to the word Christian whilst humbly exemplifying powerfully the Samaritan outsider that Jesus . ...

Khalil Gibran (January 6, 1883 – April 10, 1931) was a Lebanese artist, poet and writer. Born into a Maronite Catholic family in the town of Bsharri in the north of modern-day Lebanon, as a young man he immigrated with his family to the United States, where he studied art and began his literary career, writing in both English and Arabic. He is chiefly known in the English-speaking world for his 1923 book The Prophet, a book composed of twenty-six poetic essays. Since it was first published in 1923, The Prophet has never been out of print. Having been translated into more than forty languages, it was one of the bestselling books of the twentieth century in the United States. Gibran was also an accomplished artist, especially in drawing and watercolor, having attended art school in Paris from 1908 to 1910. His more than seven hundred images include portraits of his friends WB Yeats, Carl Jung and Auguste Rodin. While most of Gibran's early writings were in Arabic, most of his work published after 1918 wa ...

For the flood of poetry, Khalil Gibran from Kayla Bondi Song of Love I am the lover's eyes, and the spirit's Wine, and the heart's nourishment. I am a rose. My heart opens at dawn and The virgin kisses me and places me Upon her breast. I am the house of true fortune, and the Origin of pleasure, and the beginning Of peace and tranquility. I am the gentle Smile upon his lips of beauty. When youth Overtakes me he forgets his toil, and his Whole life becomes reality of sweet dreams. I am the poet's elation, And the artist's revelation And the musician's inspiration. I am a sacred shrine in the heart of a Child, adored by a merciful mother. I appear to a heart's cry; I shun a demand; My fullness pursues the heart's desire' It shuns the empty claim of the voice. I appeared to Adam through Eve And exile was his lot; Yet I revealed myself to Solomon, and He drew wisdom from my presence. I smiled at Helena and she destroyed Tarwada, Yet I crowned Cleopatra and peace dominated The Valley of the Nile. I am like th . ...

I love Khalil Gibran !!! I think this statement should be hanging in people's homes, on bumper stickers, on billboards, on t-shirts, on coffee mugs... so that whenever a person experiences pain of any kind, they can be reminded that it is moving them towards that higher understanding and towards becoming a better person as long as they don't ignore the lesson in the pain.
Khalil Gibran "Work is love made visible. And if you can't work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of the people who work with joy."

Khalil Gibran shared the following link and had this to say about it: "The significance of a man is not in what he attains, but rather what he longs to attain."
prophet Khalil Gibran states “Your sorrow is your joy unmasked… How else can it be? The deeper the sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain.” I realise great sadness also provides an opportunity for greater happiness, and one is simply the flip side of the other.
Thanks for the reminder Tom Green on Khalil Gibran...I was totally addicted to him in the 70's...along with Jane Roberts and Seth Speaks.
Shakur was a voracious reader. He was inspired by a wide variety of writers, including William Shakespeare, Niccolò Machiavelli, Donald Goines, Sun Tzu, Kurt Vonnegut, Mikhail Bakunin, Maya Angelou, Alice Walker, and Khalil Gibran. Shakur never professed following a particular religion, but his lyrics in singles such as 'Only God Can Judge Me' and poems such as The Rose That Grew from Concrete suggest he believed in God. This means many analysts currently describe him as a deist. He believed in Karma, but rejected a literal afterlife and organized religion. Tupac has had several family members who were members of the Black Panthers; Mutulu Shakur, the step-father of Tupac, Assata Shakur, his step-aunt, Billy Garland the biological father of Tupac and Afeni Shakur his mother. Tupac publicly spoke out against interracial marriage in an interview with Source magazine in 1994...

Hi everyone, let's play this game here: Write your favourable quote on giving (quote the original speaker) in the following format: with Mother Theresa: If you can't feed a hundred people, then just feed one. with Khalil Gibran: You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.
An adaptation of my favorite poem, On Love by Khalil Gibran Love beckoned to me, and I followed. I yielded to his wings that they would engulf me. I believed him when he spoke to me. He crowned me and later crucified me. I have been assigned to his sacred fire so that I could become sacred bread for God’s sacred feast. I have laughed and I have wept. I am in the heart of God now. Love found me worthy and directed my course. I melted and became like a running brook and sang my melody to the night. I have come to know the pain of too much tenderness, I have been wounded by my own understanding of love and I now bleed willingly and joyfully. Yet, I awaken at dawn with a winged heart and I give thanks for another day of loving.

Once I said to a scarecrow, "You must be tired of standing in this lonely field." And he said, "The joy of scaring is a deep and lasting one, and I never tire of it." Said I, after a minute of thought, "It is true; for I too have known that joy." Said he, "Only those who are stuffed with straw can know it." Then I left him, not knowing whether he had complimented or belittled me. A year passed, during which the scarecrow turned philosopher. And when I passed by him again I saw two crows building a nest under his hat. - Khalil Gibran!

My body is downtown at work this morning but my soul is still soaring in wonderment over the weekend, when it felt like I was intimately woven into the lines of a lyrical poem written by Life celebrating various aspects of Love. Friday night was one of my beloved's and my anniversaries and so the evening was given over to a joyful and passionate celebration of the love that exists between a man and a woman. Saturday night fused so many loves together --- singing, community and coming together for a beautiful cause. There were eight of us in the ensemble and we sang Sweet Honey in the Rock's "On Children", which is magical not only for its tight acapella harmonies but also for the soulful lyrics that were taken from Khalil Gibran's section on children in "The Prophet." Our individual voices sounded like sweet streams merging into a mighty river and the African drums that accompanied us made the flow even more powerful. As if that weren't enough, I got to share a mic with my beloved sista/friend, Nail ...

Or   Do you command me to destroy what The liars and tyrants have built? Shall I uproot with my fingers What the hypocrites and the wicked Have implanted?  Speak your insane Wish! What is it you would have me do, My countrymen? Shall I purr like The kitten to satisfy you, or roar Like the lion to please myself? I Have sung for you, but you did not Dance; I have wept before you, but You did not cry. Shall I sing and Weep at the same time?   Your souls are suffering the pangs Of hunger, and yet the fruit of Knowledge is more plentiful than The stones of the valleys.

Dare to be Yourself “Your only obligation in any life time is to be true to yourself. Being true to anyone else or anything else is not only impossible, but the mark of a fake mission.” --Richard Boch “I was strolling in the gardens of an insane asylum when I met a young man who was reading a philosophy book. His behavior and his evident good health made him stand out from the other inmates. I sat down beside him and asked, “What are you doing here?” He looked at me, surprised, but seeing that I was not the one of the doctors, he replied, ‘It’s very simple. My father, a brilliant lawyer, wanted me to be like him. My uncle, who owns a large emporium, hoped I would follow his example. My mother wanted me to be the image of her beloved father. My sister always set her husband before me as an example of a successful man. My brother tried to train me up to be a fine athlete like himself.

Song of Fortune VI by Khalil Gibran Sunset Love Man and I are sweethearts He craves me and I long for him, But alas! Between us has appeared A rival who brings us misery. She is cruel and demanding, Possessing empty lure. Her name is Substance. She follows wherever we go And watches like a sentinel, bringing Restlessness to my lover. I ask for my beloved in the forest, Under the trees, by the lakes. I cannot find him, for Substance Has spirited him to the clamorous City and placed him on the throne Of quaking, metal riches. I call for him with the voice of Knowledge and the song of Wisdom. He does not hearken, for Substance Has enticed him into the dungeon Of selfishness, where avarice dwells. I seek him in the field of Contentment, But I am alone, for my rival has Imprisoned him in the cave of gluttony And greed, and locked him there With painful chains of gold. I call to him at dawn, when Nature smiles, But he does not hear, for excess has Laden his drugged eyes with sick slumber. I beguile him at event ...
