Description

Timeless Wisdom to Feed the Spirit and Nourish the Soul

For the past eighty years, the beautiful words of the Lebanese-American poet Kahlil Gibran have graced everything from greeting cards and wedding invitations to inspirational wall hangings and corporate motivational literature.  By one account, Gibran is the third bestselling poet of all time, after Shakespeare and Lao-Tzu. 

In this beautiful gift book, we discover the essential wisdom about what it means to be alive.  For Gibran, life is the energy that saturates all we see and feel—as well as what we can only imagine.  Here are over 100 fables, aphorisms, parables, stories, and poems from the author of The Prophet.  Here on display is that visionary voice of comfort, love, and tolerance.

Listening to Nature’s Life:  Taking time to listen to the natural world reveals a new dimension of being human.  It is as if all of nature were already within us, reminding us of our connection to the one life we share.

Solitude:  Solitude is a silent storm that breaks down all our dead branches. Yet it sends our living roots deeper into the living heart of the living earth.

Kahlil Gibran was a Lebanese-American artist, poet, and writer of the New York Pen League.  After immigrating to the United States, 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, an early examination of inspirational fiction that includes a series of philosophical essays written in poetic English prose.

Neil Douglas-Klotz Ph.D. is a world-renowned scholar in religious studies, spirituality, and psychology.  Living in Edinburgh, Scotland, he directs the Edinburgh Institue for Advanced Learning and for many years was the co-chair of the Mysticism Group of the Americal Academy of Religion.  He is also the co-founder of the International Network for the Dances of Universal Peace.
