A little prayer for today

How can I lose faith in the justice of life, when the dreams of those who sleep upon feathers are not more beautiful than the dreams of those who sleep upon the earth?

Gibran Khalil Gibran.

now I am in an area that all the world news channels are busy talking about it’s big battles (Qalamoun) .. while I’m really inside and all I see is this great piece of art.. today I could smell the aroma of God after the rain fell on this deserted land. I could play a game with the sun rays. the dreams of you people are not more beautiful than my dreams..

may the eyes of ours always see the greatness of the world that lies behind the ugliness of it… Amen

  1. I find the generosity of your spirit uplifting and inspiring. I am so happy that you can see beyond the ugliness to find beauty in what God gives us. The smell of the desert, the sun and, I hope, the people who remember what peace is. I’m glad you can find even small bits of peace, that you have the courage to seek it out and appreciate it. Someday soon all this too shall pass. Peace is the most beautiful gift of all.

    From Khalil Gibran:

    “Upon a day Beauty and Ugliness met on the shore of a sea. And they said to one another, “Let us bathe in the sea.” Then they disrobed and swam in the waters. And after a while Ugliness came back to shore and garmented himself with the garments of Beauty and walked his way. And Beauty too came out of the sea, and found not her raiment, and she was too shy to be naked, therefore she dressed herself with the raiment of Ugliness. And Beauty walked her way. And to this very day men and women mistake the one for the other. Yet some there are who have beheld the face of Beauty, and they know her notwithstanding her garments. And some there be who know the face of Ugliness, and the cloth conceals him not from their eyes.”

    Amen.

    • Amen.
      🙂 So you read for Gibran ❤ he writes about such a pure beauty that hardly shows to us these days. thanks for reading and reminding me of this moral from Gibran. wish you a good day.

  2. Levantine, you Gibran quote is exquisite and the way you offer it as a prayer and reflection, equally so. Thank you.
