Gibran's descriptions celebrate the dignity and freedom of animals, birds, the seasons, oceans, clouds. His is a poet's eye; he abhors the tentacles of government and calls on citizens to question all ideologies. In this book he writes about life's great moments and passages (The First Kiss, The First Glance, The Mystery of Love, Youth); eternal essences (Earth, The Nature of Woman, Marriage, Love, Truth, Poetry), and grapples with nationalism, religion, and spiritual growth. The Eye of the Prophet blends Christian, Muslim, and Buddhist ideals into a great spiritual tapestry that transcends all cultural divisions. With its vibrant, rhythmic language, it speaks to our challenging times as a worthy companion to The Prophet.
About the Author
Praise For The Eye of the Prophet…
“In these writings Kahlil Gibran takes us out of the wilderness into the joys and sorrows of everyday urban life. More personal and political than The Prophet, the book nonetheless sings with Gibran’s lyricism and abiding wisdom.”
—Wes ‘Scoop’ Nisker, author of Crazy Wisdom and cofounder of Buddhist journal Inquiring Mind
“This book shows once again why the writings of Kahlil Gibran have been such a rich source of spiritual inspiration in our modern world.”
—Jacob Needleman, author of The Heart of Philosophy
