"How beautiful to find a heart that loves you, without asking you for anything, but be okay."
I loved it so much that I searched for his other works and stumbled across The Prophet.
The Prophet is considered Gibran’s best work and even though I haven’t read anything else from him, I believe it’s true. It is a collection of 26 prose poetry essays on topics like love, friendship, joy, and sorrow among many others.
When I read the first chapter, I knew in my heart that this book was for me. I am about to face a big change in my life and the prophet’s words about leaving the city to go back to his birthplace pretty much summed up what I feel. There is a certain comfort in other people putting into words things you don’t even know how to say.
I haven’t read a lot of classic books in my life but one thing is for certain. I absolutely love the way they are written. There’s something oddly fascinating about the way they phrase sentences. That, coupled with Gibran’s profound and beautiful writing, made me read this book in one sitting. I highlighted this book like crazy.
I won’t pretend that I really understood the deeper meaning of all of it. This is the kind of book that speaks like a mirror to your soul. You only get what your heart is willing to give.
Lovely and concise, there is much here for mystics in the making and those embracing a contemplative, sustainable and life enhancing existence rather than the calculating, consumptive and soul suppressing life of the status quo.
