    Now that I m reading The Prophet again, words that I read twenty seven years ago still ring clearly in my mind as I read them again today It was a wonderful moment a few evenings ago to find myself reciting aloud and from memory passages that had struck me then and now to the very core Kahlil Gibran spent a couple of years revising The Prophet Since it is a short book, the concepts come across as distilled The influences of his native Lebanon as well as his love for scripture, come through in the scriptural like language I am savoring this book slowly this time, taking little sips at a time.

    The Prophet made me feel profoundly spiritual when I was nineteen It was a great way to experience spirituality and romance as a teenager, but as I got older, its lusty descriptions of the true meaning of love, marriage, and life just seem like pretty, but shallow, wordplay.Now, don t write to me and prove me wrong on this, because I like the idea very much I believe that Khalil Gibran was quite the player The Prophet has a seductive tone that avoids making any concrete statements, which is the strategy used by career players see SNL s The Ladies Man.Nonetheless, I still recommend everyone read The Prophet Whether you take the prose as deep advice or empty rhetoric, it is beautiful wordplay.

    Despite your religious views, be they absent or strong, Gibran has given us a work of beauty that proves, to me at least, that faith is not necessary to be good and right.A favorite quote from the book Fill each other s cup but drink not from one cup.Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf.Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music Lee

    Kahlil Gibran was one of the leading Maronite philosophers of the first half of the twentieth century Born in Lebanon in 1883, his poetry accompanied by artwork has been translated into over twenty languages I decided to read his opus The Prophet, which is awe inspiring poetry written in novella form A classic that often surfaces on goodreads classics groups, The Prophet is a worthy edition to one s classics collection Gibran s philosopher Al Mustafa has traveled by boat to visit the Orphalese people and speak words of wisdom to them Almitra becomes especially enad in Al Mustafa s teachings and either hangs onto or collaborates with him in his words as he wows the Orphalese with both his wisdom and knowledge Gibran s words translated into English are like reading any religion s scriptures and flow like the honey of the Middle East Passages speak of a bird of space, that in a cage of words may indeed unfold its wings but cannot fly and knows that yesterday is but today s memory and tomorrow is today s dream yet each page of this thin volume evokes powerful philosophy It is of little wonder that Almitra and her people would become enad with the words of Al Mustafa Almitra was also a seeress in her own right and desired that Al Mustafa remain in Orphal and that they join forces in prophecy I found this thinking to be progressive for its time or any time Some of Almitra s forward thinking included Blessed be this day and this place and your spirit that has spoken She is keen in her perceptive skills and values having one like Al Mustafa in her midst Yet, his destiny is not to remain in one sea faring village but to travel the region preaching words of wisdom to all people The version I read was a pocket book that also included a few of Gibran s sketches of Al Mustafa Between the poetry and drawings, he has created a masterpiece that flowed on the pages While I am used to reading psalms and prophetic teachings, I did not find Gibran s words to be anything that out of the ordinary but in comparison to the majority of secular works, his words are powerful Although not my absolute favorite, I am glad that I read this opus and would read of Gibran s poetry 3.75 stars rounded to 4.

    I don t know if I can write this review I really don t It makes me feel extremely vulnerable, to contemplate putting so much of my heart out on view for people on the internet to see I also don t know if I have the words.Reading this book was both devastating and awe inspiring I was moved beyond words, particularly when I started reading it, started to let the words wash over me, when I realized how familiar they were, not the words, but the meanings behind them It felt like something I d been swimming in my whole life and never realized it.Note The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the recent changes in Goodreads policy and enforcement You can read why I came to this decision here.In the meantime, you can read the entire review at Smorgasbook
