Khalil Gibran had many profound truths to offer the world in his seminal work The Prophet. I dip into it whenever my spirit seeks something of beauty,of wisdom and truth. His words regarding Beauty touch a deep part of the heart, illuminating it with an unearthly scent and sight. We look upon that beauty with our inner eyes of love. The words are quite upliftng:
People of Orphalese, beauty is life when life unveils her holy face.
But you are life and you are the veil.
Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.
But you are eternity and you are the mirror.
Such are words that carry us through dark and light times, through sorrow and joy. Always remember this when you feel worn down by the Wheel of the World.
