Between now and the New Year may I share some valuable insights from many different religions, philosophies and cultures?
Here are some thoughts that helped lead the theme of my novel “65th Octave” which dispels the illusion of individuality. “We are One!”
“The Love of Life” is a Lebanese poem comparing the seasons to cycles in life that we all share as a husband sings affectionately of their life to his wife.
"Feed the lamp with oil and let it not dim andplace it by you, so I can read the tearsyour life with me has written upon your face.Bring Autumn's wine. Let us drink and sing theSong of remembrance to spring's carefree sowing,And Summer's watchful tending, and Autumn'sReward in harvest.Come close to me, oh beloved of my soul; theFire is cooling and fleeing under ashes.Embrace me, for I feel loneliness; the lamp isDim, and the wine which we have pressed is closingOur eyes. Let us look upon each other beforeThey are shut." Kahil Gibran
May the taste of your remembrances be such a sweet wine!
