O Soul by Kahlil Gibran

I would like to share with you the poem O Soul by Kahlil Gibran

“O Soul, if I did not covet immortality, I would never have learned the song which has been sung through all of time.

Rather, I would have been a suicide, nothing remaining of me except my ashes hidden within the tomb.

O Soul! if I had not been baptised with tears and my eyes had not been mascaraed by ghosts of sickness, I would have seen life as through a veil, darkly.

O Soul! Life is a darkness which ends as in the sunburst of day.

The yearning of my heart tells me there is peace in the grave.

O Soul! If some fool tell you the soul perishes like the body and that which dies never returns, tell him the flower perishes but the seed remains and lies before us as the secret of life everlasting.”

Our journey on this planet is one of ups, downs, trauma and pain. That is the journey our soul chose because through this journey we learn, we grow, we change and we clear our Karmic debt. And, if we choose, when we die, we can begin anew.
